    #5 Utah vs. #23 Cal


    Saturday, October 10 @ 8:00 p.m. MT
    TV: ESPN
    Radio: ESPN 700

    Predict the score, win a prize!!!

    Epic Sports Trips to USC -- Please support this site.

    Enough of this hand-wringing about Cal's defense. Booker and Wilson may run for 300 yards between them.

    Utah may pass no more than 12-15 times all game.

    The only thing that concerns me is that our RUNNING game may score too quickly and Goff & co. will get back on the field too often.

    Also I predict at least 1 pick six or scoop and score, and I predict it happens in the first half.

    At the end of the season we will look back at this game as one of our easier tests. This from a guy who had the Ducks by 21 two weeks ago. And sure, the Oregon result has changed my thinking somewhat, but mostly I base this post on the fact that I've seen a lot of Cal this season.

    Sleep easy my friends.

    Okay, I have spent far too much time on bennyhillthis.com this afternoon.

    Basically, it will take any YouTube video, and either slow it down or speed it up, and add the Benny Hill or Titanic theme music. It is really childish and dumb, and I love it.

    For some reason it just seems to work perfectly with BYU football clips.

    This week I sit-in protest with my Dirty Hippy comrades! I will not shower or brush my teeth until next week, demand other people's money, and slap Bernie Sanders bumper stickers on my 12 year old Toyota Corolla.

    FFO! Beat the Right Wing Utah Bourgeoisie!

    I'm hoping Sark gets a lifetime contract with USC.

    He's the best thing going for the rest of the Pac12 South. Fight On.

    The PAC-12 is where Boise State coaches come to die.

    Ugh, this does nothing to shirk the stereotype lumping us together with tds...

    Who thought this is a good idea? College football fans love themselves some mo-tab. Is this really the best the state of Utah has to offer?

    Hanno is going to be in town this weekend for the ceremony honoring the 97-98 final four team at the football game.

    Interestingly, 6'10" 5 star Finnish PF Lauri Markkanen will be visiting this weekend. I assume Hanno is his chaperone.

    Let's hope Hanno, Larry, the players, and the new facility can impress the kid! The Utes need at least 1 big in this recruiting class.

    This is a big recruiting weekend for both Larry and Kyle. I am not an insider (too poor), but if anyone has info on other visitors, please share if possible.

    The selection committee needs to put an end to this 'considered P5' bull$#!+. If you don't have to deal with the grind of a P5 conference schedule you are NOT P5.

    Conferences pulling this nonsense are just trying to pretend their schedules are harder than they really are. Any day now the SEC is going to formally announce that the two FCS teams they each play per year are 'D1 Equivalent'.

    First, you bring up Fresno St. Different QB.

    Second, Wilson threw for over 70% and 200 yards vs Mich. Not too shabby.

    Third, go back to last year when KT was hurt and Wilson had no shot of losing his job. He was a completely different QB. If you'd read my posts all summer, you'd see this isn't that shocking. All Wilson needed was a OC who would call plays that complimented him, not expose him.

    Who else is puzzled and a little skeptical that Utah’s passing game miraculously was cured during 60 minutes of play in Eugene …

    I'm still skeptical that a good PAC-12 defense will shut that down.

    3 weeks ago, we were ready to shut it down after the throw game in Fresno.

    I'm just wary of the crazy mood sings of the fans and media.

    My thoughts...it's not necessarily the throw game, but the offense in general I'm excited about:

    by Ute_Counter

    Travis Wilson and our offense put up 17 points against Michigan, and probably should have had more.

    Since that game against us, Michigan's defense has allowed a total of 14 points in four full games.

    Michigan's defense is one of the best in the country. I'm really excited to watch their next two games to see if they can back up my belief. Northwestern and Michigan State will certainly be tests.

    Our offense was stagnant in the Utah State game, but I truly believe that had Travis played in the second quarter we would have put up another TD or two.

    Fresno, we were without Travis.

    Oregon, we saw what a Travis Wilson lead offense did to the Ducks.

    It's not that I think that the throw game is unbelievable now, but what I do believe is that when Travis is running our offense, it is pretty good and that's all we need.

    We've been saying for the last two years, if we only had a "good" offense to complement our ferocious defense and our awesome special teams, we would be a really good team.

    Guess what, as long as Travis is running the show, we have that this year. A good offense with a great defense and top-notch special teams. Therefore we have a really good team.

    I'm stoked. I'm enjoying this ride. It's been a blast. It might end some time this season, but it also may not. I'm soaking in every article, every tweet, every mention of the Utes in the playoff. How awesome to even be mentioned, at any point of the season as a potential playoff team.
