    This team will be going to our first bowl game in 3 years and more than likely will have a winning record in the hardest division in at least the 2nd best conference in the nation.

    What in the name of Hooplor are you nanny boo boos crying about...

    You would think we were 5-6 again with byus schedule...

    Happy thanksgiving.. Jesus this place gets old.

    As long as Whitt is here, which I hope is a long long time, we will have a top defense.

    As long as Whitt coaches the ST they too will be at an elite level.

    DC said earlier in the year that he has never had a defense like UTAH's to complement his offense. I think DC is doing the best with what he has right now. I hope he's back because continuity is important and I think he's a good coach. If he's gone, I hope a young talented OC sees what he could do with an elite D and ST unit backing him up.

    Unexpected...

    After 20 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening when the wife felt her husband begin to fondle her in ways he hadn't in quite some time.

    It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back.

    He then caressed her shoulders and neck, slowly working his way down her assets. Then he placed his hand on her left inner arm, caressed down her side to her leg and calf. He continued on the inside of her leg and suddenly stopped, rolled over and started to watch the TV.

    As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, "That was wonderful. Why did you stop?"

    He replied, "I found the remote."

    I love false dichotomy fanhood posts.

    It is perfectly reasonable to nitpick something you are quite happy with. Posts like yours falsely frame the argument as. "Well we have a winning record so everything is awesome."

    I have been impressed with what the team has accomplished this season. I am excited that Utah will be back in a bowl game this year. That being said, I want MOAR wins. I want Utah to win the South and go to the PAC12 championship game. I want Utah to play in the ESPN money printing event.

    To this end I will discuss the reasons I feel the team won't be able to accomplish those goals.

    LOL at KSL ...

    by vUUdoo
    2014-11-26 12:55:21

    KSL's website has an article about "How much BYU has improved since their 4 game losing streak"

    Since that losing streak they have faced College Football Gauntlet of Horror:

    Middle Tennessee St

    UNLV

    Savannah St.

    That probably has nothing to do with it.

    Well the test for "Light the U" at my house was a success tonight.

    We got the new multicolor, multifunction, programmable LED light up on the house today.

    They are doing a red cascading effect for the win.

    With all the stuff these do, I may never have to take them down.

    GO UTES!!!!

    Colorado fan rivalry week checklist

    by gdart
    2014-11-26 14:28:15

    Monday: Arrive at mall, get off bus, put on Hot Dog on a Stick uniform, and arrive at work. Look for a Colorado fan. Realize most of them will be working at other places in the food court. Find one and ask if Colorado won last weekend. Realize that the guy is too baked to answer. See a man in a suit. Ask if he is a Colorado fan. Wait for laughing to stop. Get told that Colorado has not won conference game and are 2-9 overall. Rejoice that the team has won two games.

    Tuesday: After extensive research of the schedule and two 30 minute sessions at the Boulder public library, brag to the bus driver that Colorado beat both UMass and Hawaii. Since Hawaii is coached by Norm Chow that means they have basically already beat Utah. Look puzzled when the driver forces you off the bus at the next stop.

    Wednesday: Based on the state of the team, decide that running attendance smack may be a better avenue during rivalry week. Get on Utah message boards and talk about how Colorado’s stadium holds almost 10,000 more than Utah’s. Scoff at the idea that Utah sells out Colorado has an average attendance of 2/3 capacity. Make a note to ask your uncle Wendell, who has been a janitor at Folsom Field long enough to know the name Rashaan Salaam, if there are really empty seats.

    Thursday: Take your buffalo Ralphie for a walk (actually just a German Shepherd you spray paint and tape horns to during football season). Meet a homeless lady who offers to sell you two tickets to the game for three cheeseburgers. Walk away happy because you got the tickets and talked her down to two.

    Friday: Prepare a list of all the reasons the Big 12 is better than the Pac-12. After writing them both down, get prepared to tell them to your Utah alum neighbor (if you can get in his gated driveway). When you see him checking the mail, start. Look puzzled when he tells you that Colorado is also in the Pac-12.

    Saturday: Arrive halfway through the second quarter wearing your 1990s Orange Bowl Champion shirt. Meet up with friend who said he was going to sneak in a bag of weed. Get upset when it is dandelions.

    Second half: Having already fallen behind by two touchdowns, go ballistic when in the first drive of the second half Colorado continues to punt on fourth down, despite knowing there is a fifth down coming. Walk out when Clay returns the punt to the house and say something like “Rick Neuheisel will never learn.”

    Sunday: Decide not to go to the party with your wife and kids at Chuck E Cheese because you just can’t bear to see so many Colorado fans upset at work.

    but I wanted to showcase how the Utes can still smack the TDS when they don't play. Even in Carbon County, the U reigns supreme:

    I tend to agree. We are trying to carve out our niche in the P12 by being superior on defense.

    by iamthepreacher
    2014-11-26 10:12:25

    I actually agree with our approach, whether it was deliberate or not. Trying to "outscore" teams like Oregon, ASU, UCLA, Washington State, etc. is a failure mode. That's what Colorado and Cal are trying to do. Look at their records.

    Instead, we are focusing on slowing them down with defense and special teams, and doing "enough" on offense to win. It's not an exciting brand of football, but it has been mostly effective so far this season.

    Still, I would love to see things balanced out a little more. If we could even become an AVERAGE P12 offense, that would be huuuuge progress.

    At the beginning of the season, did you honestly believe the football team would have wins over all 4 California teams?
