    UTE98

    Snake eyes 33-22.

    My wife’s second cousin plays for USU. Go Aggies.

  • UTE98

    Sorry ESPN had the score listed at 33-22 and I was mocking them. It is really 33-24 now after a FG by the Turds down south.

     

  • UTE98

    Whoa, can anybody tackle Darnold, poor defense.

    Their tackling of Darnold the last two plays on their first TD was horrible.

  • justaute

    I thought that was a pretty good run. I’m hopeful that’s how Tuttle will be — big/accurate arm and sufficient athleticism to be just dangerous enough for runs/option-reads.

    • UTE98

      The missed sack and scramble by Darnold the play before was poor poor defensive assignment football.

      • justaute

        Not saying you’re wrong, but Darnold had something to do with a couple of those mis-tacles in that he faked out the the blitzer.

        • UTE98

          I’m not saying you are wrong either, but when the pocket collapses with a huge hole straight up the field…

          Somebody overpursued.

  • UteFanatic

    Could this be USU’s 54-10?

    Please let it be so.

    Byu is handing this one to usu on a silver platter and the Ags can’t do anything with it.

    • Tony

      Yep Aggs couldn’t do anything with that pick.

      • UteFanatic

        Their offense is god-awful.

  • GameForAnyFuss

    BYU-P with a season-high 21 points so far.

    The caffeine is working.

  • AZUTE

    Hey usu the cougs are going to run the ball on every play you might want to load up to stop it.

    • UteFanatic

      Also, score on offense on at least one of your 6 turnovers.

  • ladyinred

    No, please don’t let them beat BYU by more than 6 points. A 1 point victory is good.

    • Tony

      I say pour it on!

      • ladyinred

        Ok 5 points. 

  • Tony

    Why go for two? 34-21 is better than 33-21.

    BYE WEEK

    BYE week is kicking my ass.  I just want Utah football.

  • KiYi-Ute

    Agreed. But it’s probably a good thing that it’s happening. Give the team a bit of time to heal and give Williams some additional reps in practice.

  • Tony

    Bad for the fans, good for the team.  Whitt is extrordinarily good winning percentage-wise after bye weeks.

    • UM4G

      His total record is good, but since joining the PAC he’s 4-4 off bye weeks.

      • Tony

        I think our first 3-4 years of Pac-12 play will hurt all our general pac-12 stats for a long time, prior to us having “pac-12 talent and depth.”

  • ASu @ Stanford

    I imagine this will be a game a lot of Ute fans will be watching this week. Who do you want to win? Obviously any time a south team loses is good for us, but would there be any reason we want Stanford to win? The only thing I can think of is we don’t want to lose to a Stanford team with a losing record. We’d almost surely be knocked completey out of voting for the Top 25. 

    What are your thoughts?

  • Tony

    South record is priority, so first we want all south opponents to lose. So ASU.

    • Wilson's Mustache
      2 1

      We really need USC to lose. I still think Utah has a shot at the South again this year, but USC will need to lose at least a couple games. The fact that they don’t play UW hurts.

    • PlainsUte

      Double overtime win for Stanford.   Actually I don’t think it will be close, Stanford should win fairly easily.

      • Minneapolitan_Ute
        2

        The ideal, imo, would be Stanford winning a very tough, hard-fought game.

      • ProudUte

        I agree with you.  I want a difficult win for Stanford.  

        I thought Oregon would destroy ASU, but somehow lost.  I still can’t believe that ASU’s pathetic defense held Oregon to leas than 40 points.

         

  • leftyjace

    I want a tough game, with a lot of ASU injuries, with Stanford coming out on top.
    Then I want us to beat the ever-lovin’ pants off them next week. Followed by a complete obliteration of ASU.
    It really doesn’t matter who wins, as long as we beat both of them.

    Pinpoint accuracy is reason we desperately want Tuttle. Who says he doesn't run?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1Ls_TqAVDs

    In in case any fans haven’t done their research. A few decent runs too.

  • AZUTE

    He’ll run just enough to keep defenses honest and that’s all Utah needs him to do.

    One college scout when asked to describe Tuttle
    “Jack Tuttle is so consistently good he’s boring”

    • leftyjace

      Whoah….

      THAT QUOTE SURE GAVE ME SOME!!!

  • justaute

    Yup. Plus, it’s really about the composite and balancing of various attributes. Not just how fast and quick (these are different), but also when to run, when to throw the ball away. Ability to read the defense and then improvise. It’s ok to be a bit slower, if you can read/recognize the play/defense sooner. It’s ok to have a less strong arm, if you have quick release and have a good touch. I’ll take a strong decision-making attribute over superb physical attributes all day, every day.

    My 2 pesos.

    Ute thunder is our resident QB expert.  Ask him. He’ll know 

  • UteThunder

    Those runs won’t translate to the college level, IMO. The tackles he is breaking look like the would be tacklers are jr. high kids compared to him. On the other runs, he gets into space that won’t be there against the speed of Pac-12 defenses. Huntley is much faster than Tuttle and he isn’t ripping off 10+ yard runs every time we get him into space.

      First off, those are his Junior year highlights. He will get bigger, faster, stronger. Also, Are you saying Huntley’s highlight reel from HS shows better runs? I dare you to go grab it, post it here and we can compare.

      • UteThunder
        10

        Oooooohhh . . . do you double dog dare me?! 

        Where did I say anything even remotely close to suggesting that? Are you saying Tuttle is faster than Huntley? I dare you to go find their 40 times and shuttle times, post them here and we can compare.

        • Hammer
          3 2

          Yes. But I know you won’t because Huntley doesn’t show any better than Tuttle on HS highlight reel.
