    We’re a good team, not great, but good. We have a LONG ways to go.

    Yeah, I remember, I like the conference much better now, even if championships are few and far between.

    Remember when we used to be in the f**king MWC playing Wyoming? I’d much rather lose to Stanford and USC.

      I don’t always agree with and thumbs up hammer, but when I do, it’s for posts like this.

      No one is questioning if the PAC is better than the MWC/WAC. But let’s not pretend that all things are fantastic with the football team.

        We barely lost to two of the top tier teams in the PAC 12 with the backup QB by a combined 4 points. – After having lost 8 guys to the draft and 15-16 guys in total to the NFL. Consider the lillies of the goddamned field. This team is good…has a good foundation of coaches and players and are on the low side of it high ceiling potential, still barely losing top tiered games.

          Ok – but losses by a combined 4 points or 40 points is effectively the same thing – still losses. How long are we supposed to wait until we reach this mythical season? 1 year? 5 years? (gulp) 10 years?

        I think the main issue is depth.

          This used to be a big issue, but is becoming less and less an issue.

            Agree.  Still an issue but improving.

    I wouldn’t say, “a LONG ways to go”, just execution needs to get better. Utah has the players and coaching but it takes patience.

    Winning the PAC is slightly more challening than winning the Mountain West.

    Broskis…We get a win this week against ASU, hopefully have huntley back either this weekend, if not the next, finish out with an 8 win season and keep our recruiting momentum up, we will be set up for a fantastic couple years!

    We’re losing a lot from our front 7 next year, but we’ve got some solid young bulls coming up, and I can’t wait to see this offense evolve over the next couple years. We’ve still got a lot of young talent on offense (Huntley, Moss, Simpkins, Wilson, Singleton, Covey coming back, Bryan Thompson, TJ Green, DHC)…likely just losing 2 offensive lineman.

    We desperately need a solid JC linebacker, if we get good linebacker play next year I’m calling it now, it will be the best team in Utah football history and the year after will be even better. I don’t know that we win a conference championship either of those years, a lot has to go right to win this league and SC is stacked with or without Darnold, but we’re witnessing the best teams in the history of our program…soak it up!!!

    Let’s take this logic a step further. If we could just get into a high school conference, we’d win national championships every year!

      Or become Independent, load up the schedule with 6-7 patsies and be bowl-eligible every year!!

    Gave you a thumb down because your thread is a bit nieve.

    Exactly how many conference championships does Utah have in the last 60 years? 7. ’08, ’04, ’03, ’99, ’95, ’64, and ’57.

    “Remember when we used to win conference championships”… Makes it sound like Utah was a power house, other than the Urban Meyers back to back years, that list looks pretty f**king mediocre.
