Go Utes!Best team in the state.And closing the gap on
the Pac 12 teams(see #12 ucla game down to last second)Once we get
one of these big wins, we'll never look back. I think UCLA is a better team
than Stanford. And to think, if Wilson only has 2-3 picks we win that game by
14 points. Heck, even with 5 picks we win that game. I'm more confident
now than ever against Stanford. Dennis Erickson is legit, and our defense has
been solid for years.Utah 32Stanford 27And it will
be the best win for any Utah school in the last 20 years.Go Utes!Onward and Upward
this is a good sign, although I want Sitake to blitz more and stunt on the line.
Be more agressive.GO UTES!!
Love the sacks, D! Now go create some fumbles, more pick-6s, and more
W's!Here's to the defense and the offense uniting for a
complete team victory on Saturday!Go Utes!
Best Team in the StateThe Jeff Sagarin Ratings have BYU ranked 29th,
Utah 34th and Utah State 38th. USA Today has BYU ranked 37th, Utah
49th and Utah State 58th.CBS Sports has Utah ranked 51st, BYU 52nd
and Utah State 60th.Consensus? BYU > Utah > Utah
Here's a novel idea: Pit these teams in games against each other, and find
out which team is better!
I'm with sportsfan. Never, ever consider the final score as the ultimate
Reliance on consensus opinions may be how cougs fans attempt to "beat"
Utah. Never mind the actual head-to-head games that have resulted in four
consecutive victories for the Utes...! lol
@ernieI'm with ernie, never consider a teams entire body of
work when deciding such things, only focus on one single factor to make all
decisions as there are never any other factors but one. That's why texas
a&m won the national championship last year.
Welcome back Ducky!How was Tulsa??Go Utes!!Onward and Upward!
Yeah, let's look at those bodies of work: each team has the same record,
each team has a win over USU, Team A has losses to a 4-1 team and a 5-0 team,
Team B has losses to a 2-3 team and... Team A!
Hey - wasn't at least one of those sacks by #50, Pita Taumoepenu.
Wasn't he supposed to be at byU? Didn't the UC talking heads say he
would never play a down at Utah?Hmmm .... I wonder what happened
there?Go Utes!Onward and Upward!!
This is an impressive statistic even if a boat load of those sacks came against
only Weber and byu. The fact remains...the Ute D is young and very
inexperienced on game 1. Looking good indeed!Go Utes...make sure
the Cardinal remembers their visit to our house!!
Games are decided on the field. These ranking and rating systems are skewed.
Especially the bologna of Sagarin ratings. Maybe we should all just huddle
around and wait for David Locke to deduce some concrete reason why rocket
science tells us who is the better team. Ranking and rating systems
are similar to the BCS. They are just more of an agenda, the kind of which is
corrupting college sports all around. Utah's win over BYU was only one game
but it's where bragging rights should come. BYU wants to win that game like
no other and falls each year. Next year they don't have to worry about
losing to Utah. Instead, we can all enjoy BYU fans telling us how great BYU is
by winning 10 games against their weakest schedule EVER! I thought the first two
years was where these independent kinks were going to be worked out schedule
Utah has struggled to have a legit pass rush for years, even when their defense
has been strong. Last years sack total was crazy good especially
since Utah wasn't getting out in front and winning games. It's always
easier to tally sacks when you have the lead and teams become one dimensional by
playing from behind and having to throw. Many teams were running the
clock out on Utah while Utah was playing catch up. The sack total surprised me
all of last year in that regard. How do you finish 5-7 and play the tough
schedule Utah has and be atop the nation in sacks.
