      Utah went to the Rose Bowl and beat Chip Kelly’s “resurgent” Bruins.  The Utes beat UCLA by the biggest margin they have lost this season.  

      Describing this Kragthorpe started in an article.

       

      After the Utes produced a rather routine, 41-10 win at UCLA on Friday, they watched chaos unfold in the conference. 

      So is describing this dominant win as routine an insult minimizing the accomplishment or a compliment expecting this of the team?

      Neither. Given the state of the team right now it’s simply a factual statement.

      Compliment, if anything. It didn’t require a spectacular effort or a crazy series of events for Utah to win that big.

      Coming from Kragthorpe it was a compliment and shows he didn’t really watch the game. Maybe I am a bit negative but it was close at half time. Luck came into play with Speight not having the right timing with his receivers. Speight extended plays but Utah’s defense made turnovers when it needed to. Cody Barton could have had a few more to be honest. 

      Overall it felt pretty routine but Utah needs to clean things up still.

        What has become routine is starting slow, catching up in the 2nd quarter and blowing it open in the 3rd quarter as the Ute offense continues on track and after the first quarter the defense practically locks down the opposing offense until garbage time.

          We do start off slowly, especially on D giving up some points. However, our O takes time to wear down the opposing D before it kicks into high gear.

            Actually, those scores that teams get early on us are caused by mistakes by the Offense or special teams (typically).

              True, mistakes are made and short fields for the opponent result.

      Think it is meant to say that the Utes “routinely” put up 40 points bla bla bla.
