We will win idaho real bad and show them we are in a big boy conference now.Utes 81Idaho 2Go write it down!
Can't wait!Go Utes!
Travis Wilson's passing percentage before the injury: 62% ... Utah 4-2After the injury: 32% ... Utah 1-5Let's hope he's
healthy all season and takes his game to next level.Go UTES!
Idaho State 35Utah 17Don't write it downSo starts the tough schedule.
Not sure I understand the excitement about having a returning quarterback
witha horrible record!??? The Ute's brought in Kendal Thompson from
one of the top programs in the country to give the Ute's a new look
and turn things around.It sounds to this okie that as long as Wilson is at
the helm, Ute's can expect more of the same :(In
today's college football a QB in this offense needs the ability to extend a
playWith their feet..... Wilson CANNOT do that.... Ute fans better hope
Thompson takes the helm SOONER than later! 👍
I am reminded of. 66-0 game against this team while I was still in college.
This team gave up in at halftime. Would rather beat BYU for a fifth straight
time than play the Bengals.
Should be a nice tune up game for the utes. Here's hoping Idaho makes a
good show of it!Go College Football!
What a great day; College football is upon us! Tonights game will be a glorified
scrimage; but it's the only one Utah will have.Go Utes!
if utah can pull this off it will be a big win for the program.
@sooner1It must be really difficult for you that the number 2 QB at
Oklahoma is the number 2 QB at Utah. Get over it.
@worfIdaho State 35Utah 17Don't be silly,
Utah will keep it closer than that.The Utes book end their schedule
with two of the worst teams in college football.But at least
they'll have plenty of time for R&R during bowl season.
WahoooLet's go beat up a weak team from and Po-dunk Idaho and
call ourselves great. We're big boys now. Yay.
Anybody know how i can watch the game on TV? I have directv?(like most people
do)Does Buffalo Wild wings broadcast it?
We'll save most of our NASCAR plays for when we play big teams, but should
be fun to watch the guys run all over lowly ISU.Utah 55ISU
7Utah WILL go 7-5 and go to the best bowl of anyone in Utah.Go UTES
Chris BYour "NASCAR" offense will spend most of the season
in the pits undergoing repairs.Still waiting for your list of 7
teams that you claim the Utes will beat in 2014.Your silence is
Idaho state can throw the ball around a little bit.. but still no match! Utah
doesn't score more than 50 points
SEC Rules stated"Let's go beat up a weak team from and
Po-dunk Idaho and call ourselves great. We're big boys now."--------That's absolutely commical considering that SEC team will
play Furman, Presbyterian, Nicholls State, Lamar and UT Martin in non-conference
games this year.Too funny!
I'm admittedly an unabashedly biased Cougar, but more than anything
I'm glad to hear Wilson's health is to the point where he can play
again. I never like seeing a kid from any school end a career on an issue like
what threatened him last year. This might be old news for all of you, but
outside of football season, I really don't pay attention to what's
going on. Wish him the best of luck and for maybe the first time ever, I agree
with a Ute coach in that I'm so excited for the season to start I can
barely see straight.
I'm excited to have the football season get started but I'm hard
pressed to count this game as a real start. The Utes should blow out ISU but we
won't know much more about the team than we do now. Weber St. was the same
way last year. Good luck Utes. Hope you can get to a bowl this year.
I am impressed with all the comments from all around the country, but don't
understand why they are trashing the Utes. Its true that ISU won't be much
competition for the Utes. Still a win is a win. I predict Utah 32, ISU 14. Go
The Coach Whittingham farewell tour begins tonight. Let's go ISU!
By the end of the second lap, the "NASCAR" will be in a mangled heap up
against the wall on the back straightaway. They will piece together the same
bucket of bolts for next year, but will have a new driver. The
problem is, when you look under the hood, there's a Subaru six cylinder
motor. Sure it makes lots of noise, but it just doesn't belong on the same
track as the big boys. They should probably stick to the NasKart track down off
of 4oth South.
It's finally here! Kick the tires and light the fires! I'm sick of
talking smack on boards and trying to decide who's starting or playing for
my Cougars. Looking forward to watching BYU, Utah, and USU this year. I know I
like to antagonize but I truly do want to see all three have great seasons
(except when the Aggies visit Provo...then I have no love for them). Bring on
@ SEC RulesWahoo!FSU vs. Citadel BulldogsAlabama
vs. Western Carolina Catamounts & FAU OwlsFlorida vs.
"Po-dunk" Idaho Vandals Yay!
CougsndawgsWest Point , UTYep, Cougsndawgs nailed it again.
Let's this season underway!
As a BYU fan and a fan of football in the state of Utah I would rather see Utah
beat BYU than play Idaho St tonight (@IndeMak). The reason the whole issue of P5
conferences being required to play another P5 conference is not because they
don't want them playing BYU, it's because they want them to stop
playing DII teams(@Spokane Ute). I hate pre-season NFL, and I hate out of
conference college football. Not because of mid majors but because of the DII
games. I know BYU has a DII game this season as well, and I don't like that
either. If you're going to do it, call it scrimmage and sell discounted
tickets - but don't call it one of your 12 games by which you are being
evaluated on, and don't make me pay full price for a ticket.
Kendal Thompson second string at OU? Not accurate, he was sidelined before the
first game of season last year. The quarterback depth at Oklahoma, as all
positions at a national championship caliber program is needless to say very
deep.This kid transferred to Utah to help turn around the program. If you
are satisfied with losing then more of the same seems to make sense. I'm
sure Wilson will look great against nobody state, but when you start what truly
is a grinding schedule...(I have respect for the PAC 12)...it's is highly
probable you will need Thompson to come in and save your season.We shall
see..... All I'm saying is you have seen what Wilson can do.... Decent arm
but no mobility ....You need a Kendal Thompson in the high paced offense
you are attempting to run....Hope you make it to a bowl game.... If not
you can watch Oklahoma play in the first ever college playoffs..
sooner1Either through injury or ineffectiveness, Travis probably
won't survive as Utah's starter through September.Unfortunately for Kendal, by the time he gets the starting job, the Utes will
be into the difficult part of their schedule, so not much will change as far as
the effectiveness of Utah's offense.
pac12 network. too bad utah can't get on a network that people actually
watch. guess i'll have to learn about it from the news. really a pathetic
good news. i just noticed that there are a number of good NFL and college games
tonight on real networks that people actually have access to.
Exhibition: Jets at Eagles, NFL, 5 p.m.Wake Forest at Louisiana-Monroe,
ESPNU, 5 p.m.Boise St. vs. Mississippi, ESPN, 6 p.m.Exhibition:
Broncos at Cowboys, KMYU, 6 p.m.Tulane at Tulsa, CBSSN, 6 p.m.Herriman at Bingham, KJZZ, 7 p.m.Exhibition: Seahawks at Raiders, NFL, 8
p.m.Rutgers vs. Washington St., Fox Sports 1, 8 p.m.
Good luck on your season this year Utes!
@ sooner1I'm not sure why you think TW cann't get out of
the pocket and run? He's definitely not as quick as Thompson, but Wilson
has some wheels when he gets into space. He has 9 rushing TD's in his
career, including one last season where he took it 51 yards to the house...
Idaho State will not score tonight.
ute alumniSLC, UTSounds like you have lots of options tonight.
Enjoy.As for me and my house, we choose the Pac-12 Network. Why? Because the play by play analysis, understanding of the teams, and
absence of bias is far, far more professional than ESPN. As with all things
Pac-12, the Network is first class. In fact, the only time I watch ESPN is if
there is a Pac-12 game on. Otherwise, it's the Pac-12 Network. As I said...enjoy your evening.
Any truth to the rumor that BYU will be scouting the game as ISU is a probable
bowl opponent for them this year?
Best wishes for a great season. I am excited to take my kids to the game
tonight. Go Utes!
Sad to think that before the first game of the season, Utah is looking at this
as a most-win game to be bowl eligible. With six clear defeats looming later in
the schedule, Utah can't take Idaho State, Fresno State or Washington State
ISU has some transfers from D-1 this year. Don't take us too lightly.
From what I've heard, it's not a sell-out in Salt Lake. Want tickets?
No problem.GO BENGALS!
Here's to hoping the U can get off on the right foot and not only win
tonight but dominate and show promise on offense. Only then might the U have a
reason to be optimistic about the rest of the brutal schedule. Only a crazy
good showing tonight will give optimism for 5 or 6 wins on the season.
@CougsnDawgsAmen Bro.The Utah game will be in HD at my
house; via COMCAST and the PAC 12 network. A pretty simple concept. Go Utes!
FT"Any truth to the rumor that BYU will be scouting the game as
ISU is a probable bowl opponent for them this year?"Nope, BYU
flew to Connecticut yesterday, but there is truth to the rumor that Utah will be
scouting East HS this year as a future replacement for Idaho State.
sooner1edmond, OKThompson is extremely talented and capable.
What he lacks is game time experience. I hope/expect Thompson to play most of
the second half this evening. The coaches realize he needs playing time and I
think he'll get it over the next two games. I'm looking
forward to watching him play. He may well be the starter for the season is
Anything but a defensive shutout and a win by 50 points should be considered bad
news for Utah. Go UTES

As chris would say, gentleman start your engines nascar is about to begin ! the
only story to be told in this game is to see if whitt has learned to respect a
high school team and not run up the score to embarrass them or will he try an on
sides kick up 35-0 to start the 2nd half .

@ 65TossPowerTrapDo you really not understand how FBS football
works? Look at the Week 1 schedule, at least half of the P5 teams have a warm
up game or two.
