The University of Utah Pac 12 Utes will go 7-5 and go to the best bowl of any
team in the state.The Pac 12 utes will also be the only team in Utah
with any chance whatsoever at a big time bowl game, big time conference title,
and the playoffs one third the way through the season. That's
the beauty of being with the big boys - as we've seen several years in the
Pac 12 south, a lot of the teams beat up on each other, so really its
anyone's chance except Colorado in the South.The winner of the
South will have at least 2, if not 3 conference losses.That's
what makes being in a big time conference exciting.Unlike our WAC
brothers, their season and quest for anything special is over after their first
@2013 Ute Seniors-".. its anyone's chance except Colorado in the
South."Funny thing is I heard Colorado saying "it's
anyone's chance except Utah in the South."I think the Utes
will be lucky to get 5 wins. Most likely they end the season with 3.
Every year every team starts out optimistically, but unless Utah can keep Wilson
healthy (and out of trouble with the law), and pick up still one more offensive
coach's game plans, I don't see Utah doing so well. Then again, there
was that Standford game last year. I do wish them well, but talk is cheap!
Lets get it!Go Utes
Here's to an injury free and successful season in the best conference on
the planet.Go Utes!
Naaaaaaascarrrrrr baby, While Whitt wont leave the cupboard
completely bare for the interim coach, he certainly wont leave in bowls in them.
Just over three weeks to the first game. I can't wait!!
@waterrockethahaha in trouble with the law? You act like this kid
has had issues previously to a underage alcohol ticket. Health will be his only
Good luck Utah. I hope things turn around this season. I like Whit and want to
see him be successful so here's hoping U go bowling this season.
Did someone say, Utah will be a soft spot on Idaho States schedule?
Re: Max "...he certainly wont leave in bowls in them."There's as much chance of Coach Whitt leaving after this year as Taysom
Hill going to the NFL after this year as many BYU fans like to speculate. And-
the bowls in Coach Whitt's cupboard are certainly larger and nicer than the
plastic give-aways in your coach's closet. Any of them have BCS on them?
I didn't think so.
We are big boys now and that's way neat!Go Utes!
cougndawgs,Sorry, we'll never cheer for you guys, even if you
cheer for us.You wont see any Utes saying "Go cougars" and
for good reason. We cheer for Utah first, our Pac 12 brothers second, and
anyone who plays for byu third.Enjoy your worthless bowl you'll
be destined to after your first loss of the season - how anti-climactic that
must be!GO UTES
Worf, I have not heard anything regarding the Idaho St. game but i have
heard that Fresno St. has penciled their game in as a win !
cougsndawgs - correction on mine, anyone who plays against byu third!LOL, but I think you got the idea.Go Utes!7-5 this
year baby and best bowl in the state.
@taylormade1Springville, UTWorf,I have not heard
anything regarding the Idaho St. game but i have heard that Fresno St. has
penciled their game in as a win !-------------Did you
also year that Utah has penciled in our 2016-2018 game as wins!?! Can you say SEVEN-PEAT!
Chris B:I really don't care who u cheer for. Some fans have class and
some don't...will always be that way. You decide which fan u want to be but
I really couldn't care less what u choose. As for the "us" and
"we" you're referring to, I choose letting others decide what
they'll cheer for. I doubt they want u speaking for them.
Chris B, I just love your optimistic U attitude ! i want to use this same
attitude for the Y . 12-0 baby and a new years day bowl !
@ekute: "Here's to an injury free and successful season in the best
conference on the planet."Thanks for the warm wishes for the
SEC. We appreciate it.
Surf is Up:Haha, well done. My thought exactly. It was a gracious
compliment by ekute.
Cougsndawgs,The sec devalued your team and you dream of a scheduling
agreement with the PAC, yet you take a shot at a comment complimenting the PAC.
Conflicted? You might be more like Chris than you think.Go Utes.
@surfisup and cougsdawgs:Ekute said best conference on the planet,
which is correct, as collectively it is the best conference. If you're
referring to the best one-team conference on the planet, then give the nod to
@Go Utes! Go Yale! Seriously? You made a statement like that knowing
that the data exists to refute that claim?Lets just go back a dozen
years or more (because U guys are fond of using only the last decade+ as proof
of anything) and see what conferences had a team playing for the NC game.

Taysom Hill will be around for another three or four years, and will enter the
NFL draft as a 29 year old, like all those QBs down south...
Ekute:No I'm not conflicted, I'm a Georgia Bulldog fan and love
SEC football. Hence the "dawgs" in my username. There's nothing
about me that is remotely close to Chrissy. Go Dawgs.Go
Utes! Go Yale!:I think Surf covered your argument pretty well. Also
considering how many and how high teams from the SEC have been ranked and the
fact that they have consistently been power ranked as the toughest conference
says it all. The SEC is the best conference on the planet at least for the last
15 years. Yes the PAC12 is getting better but they may just as easily waiver in
the next few years. The same can't be said of a conference that has
dominated CFB for nearly the entirety of the BCS era.
