      I get caught up in good recruiting news and such and start to feel wounds heal, and I find myself not wanting to jump off a bridge anymore. But then I see a promo for the Peach Bowl, Rose Bowl, or the fact we had team full of all conference players, and then it feels like the wound is ripped back open and I’m back in the gulf of misery and endless woe.
      Anybody else? Just me?

      I stopped watching sports news after the game. I browse /r/CFB and /r/Utahfootball and that’s about it. I can’t stand watching on TV, even something like Yogi Roth’s preview of the Alamo Bowl. I can’t watch.

        That is especially desperate because Soccer has no winners.

      I can definitley relate. I just spent the last hour looking into recruits that we could potentially get. Also, did you know that 12 of the top 25 highest rated recruits that we have ever signed will all be on the roster for next season?

        Care to list the 12 for those of us who don’t follow recruiting very closely? Maybe all 25 just for comparison’s sake . . . ?

      I’m satisfied with the season. We gave it our best shot and came up short. Could we have been perfect, sure? But college football is super competetive and I the the UBoyz gave a tone of sweat, blood and tears this year, as did the coaches. I’m excited about the future as the recruiting talent is slowly increasing and the coaches have proven the ability to devlop young talent and win games. I wouldn’t trade the Utes for anyone else in the PAC 12. Imagine the drama that USC has been through the past 10 years.

      I’m right there too. I sometimes peruse cougarboard when I’m feeling really down. It helps to know there are teams in much worse situations than we are. I know, I’m pathetic.

      There was actually a post on Cougarboard highlighting how well Utah is doing with in state recruits this year. The only one in the top 7 we have lost is Noah Sewell, who is going to Oregon to play with his brother. The next 6 are all projected to or already committed to go to Utah.

        I think the subject is football – no?

        But… um… this is a football thread…

      its bad to have a 3 week vacuum of good football after such a tough loss

      • #117303

        Agreed. It would have been a really fun three weeks had Utah won the Pac12 championship…with a loss, not as much fun. All we have between now and the next game is recruiting news.

        Lately I have been angry at Oregon. Ultimately, Utah’s fate was in its own hands. But I find it more enjoyable to be upset with Oregon for losing to ASU. If they had not blown that game, Utah would likely be in the Rose Bowl. I would have definitely gone to that. But Alamo Bowl is just not in the cards for me.

        Curious whether Oregon fans feel let down with the Rose Bowl when the playoffs were within their grasp? Anyone frequent their message boards or know fans?

      IMO, going to the Rose Bowl is better. LSU would of torched Oregon. I don’t recall off the top of my head who the 4th CFP teams have been over the past few years.

      The P12 football operations, schedule, structure, TV set-up, officials is beyond poorly managed. P12 is it’s own worst enemy. The way it’s run is a huge barrier for program success. Almost like playing a 10th conference game. No way Utah a 5th rank team should fall so far after losing the P12 champ game. I think that’s the biggest hit to the loss. Good problem to have I guess, just not sure how much it really has helped the program, certainly as of right now, not recruiting. Maybe some kids will come around in the next few weeks.

        meh, Utah looked really bad in that lose against OR.  If it was a competitive loss Utah would be sitting at 8.

      I still has sadz about the game. Seeing all the Pac 12 honors somehow actually made me feel worse, because it was SO CLOSE and it seems like it will be a while before we have such a great group loaded with talent. And they’re such good kids too.

      Although it was a great season that brought me a lot of joy, I feel like I need watching us beat Texas to make me feel better.

      I am also super annoyed with tspp fan acquaintances in my life and their schadenfreude. Gross.

      With all of the first string alll-conference players we had we should’ve won the conference championship. One of the announcers during the championship game said Utah was “out schemed”. To me that’s the same as out coached. I think he was right.

      I’m drowning myself in draft news and the NFL right now. It’s nice to see speculation on where our guys will go. That’s always a positive at the end of a season.
