    "Interior Defense. I am not smart enough to identify exactly what has changed here, but early in the season we weren't rotating well at all. Our interior defense stunk. Lately, we have shut down the penetration and forced teams out of their offense. That is alway easy to do against UNLV, which goes out of its way to recruit the lowest Basketball IQ athletes in the country."
    By: Wakara, January 11, 2005

    "That's college football for you: Ninety percent of it is pure speculation. Utah can just wait another hundred years or so for a team like this to come along. Oklahoma, Miami or Florida State can expect unbeaten seasons occasionally, but not Utah. The Utes went decades without winning even a conference title before Ron McBride arrived in the '90s. This was Utah's team for the ages. The Utes were perfect. They did everything they could do. Due to no fault of their own, they never got a chance to play for the national title. They'll always wonder what would have happened if they could have met USC, Oklahoma or Auburn on the field.... The only thing that ever stopped them was the BCS."
    By: Doug Robinson - Columnist, Deseret Morning News, January 11, 2005

    "[Giacoletti's] playing defense on opposing superstars and taking them out of the game. Damnit, I'm a Ute fan. I don't care a lick about the players on my team, I only go to the games to see quality opponents - and sit at home and whine when there isn't a team I consider worthy on our schdule. So, you can imagine my consternation when potential NBAers like Salim Stoudamire, Brandon Bass, and Odartey Blankson are publicly pantsed by the guy with the cocky smirk [MJ] or the guy with the pathetic assist/turnover ratio [Bogut]."
    By: ColoUte, January 11, 2005

    "RE [top recruits becoming interested in Utah]: That reminds me of something my grandpa used to say...he'd say, 'Being 12-0 is a good thing.' Now I believe him."
    By: loyter, January 10, 2005

    "How appropriate for the Cougs. They are #232, and Harvard is #233 [in the basketball RPI]. Where else would you expect the 'Harvard of the West' to be other than one place higher than the 'other' Harvard?"
    By: Mineral Ute, January 10, 2005

    "For Those Who are Upset about BBall Attendance… First of all, let me say that I'd been going to games for 20+ years. With that being said, I know a lot of people (including me) that didn't renew tickets because of price. Not only did they up ticket prices, but also Crimsom Club dues. For myself, wife, and two kids, it would cost us over $1,000 and our tickets were even on the 29th row. I have a really hard time paying that kind of money for some of the crappy teams we play at home year in and year out. That being said, at this point, I'll be keeping my FB tickets, and attending BB games periodically."
    By: BigNumbers, January 10, 2005

    "Utah never had seasons like it did in 2003 and 2004 because [previously] it either lost close games or didn't have a clue offensively. I don't think KW had anything to do with either, and having been around UM for two years (and Mac for 10), he's got to have a better grip of what flies for an offense and what doesn't."
    By: SoCalPat, January 10, 2005

    "[Regarding] 'The Play': What looked like a simple short pass turns into a hook and ladder play run to perfection. I was actually laughing when I saw it because 1) the Pitt players were so shocked they really didn't do anything and 2) it was one for ALL those who doubted the Utes. That one was for Trev Alberts, Mark May, Craig James, John Saunders, A&M fans before the A&M game, all BYU fans, all fans of the BCS, all those who wanted Pitt to show us 'some east coast football', etc. Take that you filthy whores I said as laughed at the irony of Utah going 12-0 and imagined the looks on the faces of all those BCS sluts and Ute haters. Take that!!! We are you're daddy, you are our bitches... Take that and shut up.. Take that Trev... Take that Craig.. Take that Mack Brown and Jeff Tedford... Take that Mike Tranghesse you useless sack of crap.. TAKE THAT!!! YES........................... UTAH IS 12-0. TAKE THAT AMERICA."

    "(To Trounce_the_Cougs) Could you change your moniker to U'zguy? I don't know why, but it seems so appropriate."
    By: Wakara, January 8, 2005

    "You know after much deliberation, I'm declaring it doesn't really matter. The Utes went "12-0" and nobody can take that away, and if nobody beats you or is willing to play you, thus you shall be MNC with the others."
    By: UTE98, January 4, 2005

    "We at Wayne's Auburn Board have awarded the Utes a NC! We believe you deserve it, and proved it, on the field where it counts. To heck with anyone who says otherwise, and especially the talking heads who are in love with OU & USC."

    "Jim Rome's Summary of the Fiesta Bowl: Gator Fans Should Be Thrilled to Have Urban Meyer. Seriously, that was pretty much it."
    By: East Coast Bias, January 3, 2005

    "Ohio State brought 50,000 people to the 2003 national championship game at the fiesta bowl, the most ever. I think we brought more. Excuse me, Mr. Meyer, but THAT'S big time college football. If you didn't know better, you would have thought Pitt was the BCS interloper and Utah was the big conference school. Fact is, we are big time..team, facilities, fans, coaches. The BCS must Die."
    By: Wakara, January 3, 2005

    "I was walking along the sidewalk and noticed a two or three older gentleUTES sitting along the parade route. As the band started coming they stood up, began to clap, and one gentleman started to tear up. I almost went over and gave the old man a big hug. Imagine how long some of the alumns have waited for this day. WE WON THE DAMN FIESTA BOWL!!!!!! I too get chills when I hear the school song, but trying to put myself in this older UTE's shoes is difficult. My oh my, we've come a long way. It was a great experience. I'm glad I didn't miss it."
    By: mexiUTE, January 3, 2005

    "Can I just give props to KW - what a statement he made! I often had said this year that criticisms of our defense this year were actually just compliments of our offense. The defense was just stifling, and to see the Pitt QB on his butt virtually every play was great. I think we have some great years ahead of us!"
    By: Rocker_Ute, January 3, 2005

    "As if the Ute defense needed any extra motivation [Pitt QB] Palko did bring some of the misery on himself. After having been sacked about six or seven times he started getting a little testy with Hackenbruck. I said out loud, 'You shouldn't do that' and sure enough Hack got him back not too much later."
    By: UTE98, January 3, 2005

    "First, the tailgate food was totally underwhelming. The Liberty Bowl party before the game was 10 times better, with BBQ, chicken, lots of salad & dessert choices, and I keep thinking free drinks. (I remember tipping bartenders, but not having to buy a drink. I didn't have that many, really!) To charge someone $20 and just to get in a fence and then charge them more for everything beyond a sandwich and potato salad is not very cool."
    By: HoopUte, January 3, 2005

    "I haven't found out what Trev has had to say [about the Fiesta Bowl], or how he would like his crow prepared. That's a project for later today. I noticed ABC let Craig James simply dodge it by only talking about the Rose Bowl during halftime of the Fiesta Bowl. Nice job, chumps."
    By: HoopUte, January 3, 2005

    "In Texas, after rain storms, you see fire ant mounds pile up. Well, that's what Phoenix looked like to me. Utah fans swarmed the city like fire ants attacking an intruding cricket. Total inundation. I'd guess we owned 2/3rds of the stadium or more. The rest were corporate sponsors and several thousand Pitt fans. Utah fans basically had the entire home field side, plus both endzones and some of the Pitt side."
    By: TheSportsProfessor, January 3, 2005

    "It was nice to see the order in which Gatorade baths were given. 1)Kyle Whittingham 2)Gary Anderson 3)Urban Meyer. Kyle got the biggest shot, his shirt was just trashed."
    By: Diehard Ute, January 3, 2005

    "...Which then brings us to.......the tailgate. The world's BIGGEST rippoff. The Fiesta Bowl should really be embarassed, they fleeced people, willingly, just because they could. You pay $10 to park, then $20 to get into a place that has horrid food, and doesn't include your drink. The Fiesta Bowl may treat the players and coaches really really well, but they screw the fans over in some ways."
    By: Diehard Ute, January 3, 2005

    "Funniest sign I saw at the [Fiesta Bowl] game: 'My wives let me come.' 2nd place: 'lex Smith is my prophet.'"
    By: MeSoVanHorny, January 3, 2005

    "All the Pitt fans were extremely hospitable and they were just fun to be around. The Utes definetly represented well themselves. I'd say we had at least 45,000 fans in red, if not more. Overall this was the greatest football atmosphere I have ever been apart of, from New Years Eve all the way through the pregame party and the Fiesta Bowl itself. If we are ever lucky enough to get back to the Fiesta I strongly suggest to everyone that was not able to make it this year to do anything they can to go next time. It was definetly worth every penny. I'm still shaking with excitment from the Utes big win and I can't wait till next season..."
    By: 98Ute, January 2, 2005

    "Thank you everybody on here and all 60,000 or so Ute fans who showed up in Tempe to support our team. Thank you Urban Meyer for re-vitalizing our football program and bringing us to the national stage. Thank you Alex Smith for being such a class act and a hell of a quarterback. Thank you the senior class of 2004 (Best Senior Class EVER). Thank you Fiesta Bowl for throwing such an awesome party. Seeing a sea of red when I started approaching Sun Devil Stadium was awe-inspiring and a once in a lifetime moment."

    "About Pitt Fans I will offer this observation. The high quality ones came to Tempe and the poor ones that constitute the dickheads stayed home and posted on our board. I didn't run into one Pitt fan in Tempe that wasn't fun and enjoyable to talk with or deal with. We even bought a few of them a drink and let them join our party before the game. After the game those I talked to were gracious and complementary. As usual the ones that don't know crap and like to talk big behind the protection of the internet came over and played big man...big mouth and tiny mind."
    By: Dixieute, January 2, 2005

    "I'm still trying to figure out with the attendence... How come the largest home crowd the Utes have ever played in front of (I'm guessing 60K Ute fans from what everyone is saying and from what I have read) was in Tempe, AZ? I'm glad to see all of those Ute fans show up but what the crap...where have you been? I just find it interesting. Here is to a great Utah crowd and an undefeated season."
    By: FloridaUte, January 2, 2005

    "All of [BYU's] 15 [bowl game] losses were against teams inferior to Pitt. BYU played its bowl games against unranked teams in the middle of the big conferences and usually lost, as the statistic demonstrates. I hate to kick a paper Cougar when he's down but a lot of BYU fans are saying, 'Too bad Utah played such a cruddy team in a game that was so boring.' Sour grapes to the nth degree."
    By: SeattleUte, January 2, 2005

    "I love Alex Smith. He's the man, no other way to say it. I also love Morgan Scalley. He's made big plays all career long. ... But NOBODY is more awesome than FIFITA!!!! I think he's the best DT in the country, or at least he will be next year. I loved seeing him get so much love last night by the TV guys...he deserves ever word of it. He practically lives in the backfield, and is just a terror rushing the passer from the tackle spot. He's my favorite football player to watch. Can't wait to see him anchor our DL next year!!"

    "Something Strange [at the Fiesta Bowl]! When the Jumbotron had 'Congratulations to Pittsburgh' then 'Congratulations Utah State'! That is how much respect we have recieved!"
    By: OOtahRules, January 2, 2005

    "With its [Fiesta] bowl win, Utah has won as many bowl games as BYU. BYU's bowl record is 7-15-1, Utah's bowl record is 7-3. Utah has a better bowl winning percentage and has just as many wins as BYU, even though BYU has played in 13 more bowl games."
    By: JazzyUte, January 2, 2005

    "A cool fact about Utah's defense in bowl games. Utah has only given up 29 points COMBINED in four straight bowl games. That's pretty impressive!"
    By: JazzyUte, January 2, 2005

    "I have to think that somewhere across the green, Ron McBride is smiling right now."
    By: RaiderUte, January 2, 2005

    "That should be the largest home crowd in Utah history! [referring to the Ute crowd at the 2005 Fiesta Bowl]"
    By: UTE with a Laptop, January 1, 2005

    "I realize some may have already made the trip to Tempe but still there is no excuse for those at the game to be that damn quiet. The most noise made was when cheerleaders were throwing $#!+ into the crowd. What a joke that several people will rather make noise to get a cheap ass shirt then to support the Ute basketball team."

    By: Mr Crimson, December 23, 2004

    "Hey whiney Muss members, feel free to bite me with your excuses for not going to the games. First of all most of us on the board went to college and in fact the U. We know what its like being a college student. And when you say you have things to do, you know what, you don't. Hitting on that chunky blonde Tri-Delt is not something to do. Believe me you'll get your turn. Every one of us here showed up for every High Point, Whitworth and Simon Frazier because we were fans. What your whining about hoops shows me is that you're nothing more than a bunch of front running losers. Quit being pathetic and show your asses up to the games."
    By: Mr Crimson, December 22, 2004

    "Why do Y fans think they know everything about football and basketball? A few years ago when the U played the Y at the Marriott Center, a Utah player threw down a transition dunk on a Y player. That player was injured under the basket, so the Utah player hung from the rim for a while. Immediately the Y faithful let the refs know there should be a technical by making "the noise", then standing up and making obnoxious "T" motions with their arms and hands. In reality, a player may hang from the rim without penalty if there is an injured player beneath him, making this scenario a no-call. Any halfway decent basketball fan knows this."

    "With [BYU's] Nashif, Rose and Ainge on the court at the same time I thought I was at a Star Trek convention."
    By: jhill, December 21, 2004

    "[Regarding using the weak schedule as an excuse to miss games:] Yeah, great students. Don't give a rats ass about the Utes, only who they play? That's a joke. I never want to hear another 'Old People Stand Up' chant [from the MUSS] in that place until the Student Section is full for an entire season."

    "Saying you're the best thing going in SLC sports talk radio is a little like saying you're the world's tallest midget. "
