uteduke started the topic What do you think of this year’s “rivalry” game with BYU? in the Football forum. 5 days, 18 hours ago
I know there are those on this board that would prefer that we not discuss TDS at all, but it is our first real game of next season and will tell us a lot about the team. In addition to that, I got into a discussion with a pretty disallusioned BYU fan and needed a place to use actual logic to evaulate the game.
The way I see it, I expect that our…[Read more]
uteduke started the topic I’m so sick of my favorite teams being consistently dogged by bad offensive play in the Football forum. 1 month, 1 week ago
Kansas City’s loss tonight is just the latest wound. How is it that everything Utah or Utah related (The Chiefs because of Alex Smith of course) struggle so intensely to put points on the board? The defense prevented the Steelers from scoring a single touchdown and they still couldn’t muster the necessary effort to come away with the win?!
I feel…[Read more]
uteduke started the topic Thoughts on the National Championship and how it relates to Utah in the Football forum. 1 month, 2 weeks ago
First of all, the game yesterday was outstanding. I don’t know that I could have imagined a better, and frankly more ironic, end to the college football season. I was thinking a lot about our Utah team while watching the game, and here are some of my thoughts:
1. Alabama’s linebackers are unreal. They made plays all night and dismantled Clemson’s…[Read more]
uteduke started the topic What is the greatest game in Utah Football history? in the Football forum. 3 months ago
The 2009 Utah vs. Alabama Sugar Bowl game was playing earlier on the PAC-12 Football in 60. It is easily one of the most mentioned games, is it the best game in Utah Football history? If not, or even if so, what are some other candidates that should be considered?
The PAC-12’s chances of getting a team into the playoffs just increased significantly. Louisville was a hot pick to steal away one of the bids with Clemson also being projected to grab a spot. Houston was in the backfield on virtually every play and gave Lamar Jackson fits.
“Utah has to be careful not to look beyond Oregon to a showdown with Colorado that will likely decide the PAC-12 South Division Champion.”
Before this season, would anyone have imagined that the above would be a valid statement? This is the same Oregon team only two years removed from having played in the National Championship game, and the same…[Read more]
uteduke started the topic USC yesterday eliminated any margin for error in the South race. in the Football forum. 3 months, 2 weeks ago
That being said, Utah has absolute control of their destiny and seems to be playing some of their best ball as of late. It sure is nice to have players like Marcus Williams back as well!
One interesting thought though, if USC beats UCLA next week and Colorado loses to WSU then Colorado would be out of the South race because USC would finish at…[Read more]
uteduke started the topic Is it possible to ensure that Utah will win the South before playing Colorado? in the Football forum. 3 months, 2 weeks ago
So, I can’t really say that I fully understand the tiebreaker rules in the PAC-12, but it seems that it would still be possible for Utah to win the South regardless of what happens in Boulder at the end of the season. It would be a long shot, but I see it as needing 3 things to happen:
1. Utah must beat Oregon at home next week (A good chance…[Read more]
UteDuke started the topic A quick analysis of some of our players for this season in the forum Football 4 months ago
These are just some thoughts I have had about the performance of some of our players to this point in the season. I have chosen just a few players that have been on my mind. I appreciate others thoughts on whether they agree or disagree with my analysis.
Boobie Hobbs, #1: Holy heck, I have a mini heart attack about every time the other team is…[Read more]
