#25 Runnin' Utes vs. UC Riverside

TODAY @ 7:00 p.m. MST (6:00 PST)
Jon M. Huntsman Center, Salt Lake City, UT

My quick list:

Posted By: 480ute
Date: Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 02:22 pm

Wins:
USU - new coach, game at RES
Weber - if we did somehow lose this game I would imagine that Whitt's ass immediately meets the hot seat

Toss Ups:
Colorado - history says this is no easy win for us
WSU - they will be improved next season imho
OSU - not sold on these guys
BYU - they have potential to be a decent team next season
USC - Lane Kiffin staying put, and the departure of Matt Barkley gives me hope

More than likely losses:
UCLA - young team on the upswing
Zona - Rich Rod proved that he can win in Tucson
ASU - Another very young, very talented team that has owned us the past two seasons

Just hope to keep it within four touchdowns:
Oregon - way too much firepower for Utah to handle
Stanford - the only thing that gives me any amount of hope that Utah will make this a game is that it's at RES

o NEW: Some of the "Whitt does best with he back against the wall" is wearing off. Utah's back was against the wall all last year and it never got much better. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: That worked when Gary Andersen was the DC and we had a very expereinced OC, but hasn't really worked since then. (nm)

o NEW: BYU does not lose their whole defense - their best player is returning. And they have upgraded their OC significantly.

Puget Ute icon NEW: Also, WSU will be much improved. The Cougar team that beat UW was vastly improved from the team that everybody else boatraced this year, and I expect to see more of that killer instinct.

o NEW: We played WSU a couple of weeks before that and beat them 49-6. It's called a rivalry game (their win vs Wash). We were 43 points better than them with a crappy offense. We will be better next year as well. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: Did you even watch the game? Our offense happened to click on all cylinders, our Defense played like monsters, John White had 3 TDs, and Reggie Dunn had a 100 yd KRTD. WSU was in the middle of a team mutiny and their offense completely fell apart.

o NEW: So, why do you think WSU will be much improved and not Utah? Utah had a new OC, three QB's, new LB'ers, White had been hurt a lot, DVC problems, etc. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: I didn't say Utah won't win, but that the game should be a toss up and not a guaranteed win. I will call my shot now: WSU beats byu in Pullman in 2013.

o NEW: Leach's quirkiness and football genius is very much similar to Majerus. Sometimes crapping in a towel can be very motivating. (nm)

rbentz icon NEW: Puget are you a WASU alumnist or something? They got destroyed by both Utah and BYU and both teams could potentially be stronger next season.

Puget Ute icon NEW: Correction: Utah destroyed WSU. BYU-Provo escaped with a win despite 3 dropped, wide open, certain TD catches by Wilson, and despite going 2 for 6 in the Red Zone at the end of the game.

Puget Ute icon NEW: For the record, I see WSU as a 3-9 to 6-6 team next year. Utah is a 4-8 to 6-6 team, posisbly 7-5 if 'ball goes in hoop'. Anything better than that will be gravy. (nm)

o NEW: Last offseason we lost our best CB and all three of our LBers, but kept our best player (and arguably the best player in the country). How did that work our for us? BYU loses a lot on their defense this year, more than Utah last. That unit will not (short)

o NEW: Fine, call them 40-60% games if you prefer. It's not an exact science. That point is, those are the hardest games to predict. Each of those teams has question marks too. (nm)
sancho - -- Tuesday 8 January 2013, at 02:15 pm [ID# 1477351] [reply]
o NEW: Also, Anae is a great OC against MWC/WAC teams. Against good teams? Eh.
Ute2004 - -- Tuesday 8 January 2013, at 02:14 pm [ID# 1477349] [reply]
o NEW: An upgrade is an upgrade. Maybe they beat Boise and Notre Dame this year with a better OC. (nm)

SeaTacUte icon NEW: 3 wins likely, and a possible 4th win. I haven't seen nor heard anything that provides me confidence that the Utes will do any better than that. (nm)

SeaTacUte icon NEW: Also major concerns at the most important position - QB, no offensive identity and still with a very suspect OC. (nm)

o NEW: This has been Utah's biggest fail the last three years. This next year will be the best our QB position has been since before the Iowa St game...and it still isn't very good at all. Here is to hoping BJ and Wilson make HUGE strides this offseason. (nm)

o NEW: Not so sure SC is a probable loss. I know we are at their place next year, but Wittek isn't very good, and who knows how good Browne will be. After all, he is coming from the same school Heaps came from, and Kiffen might be as terrible as Roscoe. (nm)
