    Have we lost yet with this combo?

    • SouthJordanUte

      Nope the Utes are undefeated in this combo

  • NorthEZUte

    Love this look.

  • bigmanUTE

    Utah will win Saturday IF: (________)

    They win the turnover battle. I think this game will be closer than people think.

  • the offense takes care of the ball and Wilson starts.

  • Ute Bc

    We open up the offense and use the whole field (10 yards and beyond)

    • Won’t happen Utah is incapable of doing it. Chase Hansen is the only one capable of doing it with that flea flicker play. Control the game, win in the trenches and punch Oregon in the mouth.

  • Wilson's Mustache

    Utah shuts down Oregon’s rushing offense.

    &

    Utah has long sustained drives that put points on the board.

    This is the Stanford recipe that has been so successful against Oregon.

    • Hockeybeard

      Basically my thoughts too. Keep Oregon from leaning on their run, make their QB uncomfortable in the pocket, and then when we have the ball keep the drive going long and keep their offense off the field and out of sync.

  • leftyjace

    WE SCORE MORE POINTS THAN THEY DO.

    Boom.

    Yep – you heard it here first.

    • Hockeybeard

      • UteStuckInSeattle

        I checked some stats and found that teams that lead the game at the end of the 4th quarter win a STAGGERING 100% percent of the time.

        Seriously though, Utah needs to find a way to put points on the board quite a bit more often than we typically do. I think our defense has the ability to slow down Oregon but not completely stop it.

        I think 30 points is the magic number for this game. If Utah can keep Oregon to under 30 and be within a touchdown by mid-4th quarter we’ll be in good shape.

        • GadValleyUte

          let’s see common core curriculum teach those sort of analytic skills.

  • THEeyepatch

    Keep the Ducks offense off the field, 50% or better conversion rate on 3rd down, control the clock, no knucklehead penalties, Utah has a balanced offense, Travis Wilson plays the game of his career (think against OSU a couple of years ago minus the INT’s), Booker batters the Duck front-7 into submission, Special Teams TD’s, ‘Fat guy’ defensive TD’s (lol)… so in general, A PERFECT GAME!

    Who knows, maybe the Ducks will be looking past Utah towards their big game with Colorado?

  • High Uintas

    Utah has to limit Oregon’s big plays. Make them grind it out and they’ll stall and make mistakes. Let them score on 90 second drives and we’re toast.

  • GiantUte

    …they (repeatedly) carry the ball across the goal line.

    What, too soon?

  • utejeph

    Wilson passes for over 250 yards. I know that is a tall task, but if that happens, Booker will get his 100+ and we will win.

  • SanDiegoUteFan

    1. Our D line and linebackers can apply pass pressure early and often.
    2. We get 14-17 points on turnovers, while limiting ours to zero or one.
    3. Hackett keeps the field lopsided.
    4. TW nickels and dimes Oregon with long sustained drives resulting in points.

    • Utah hasnt been great at points off turnovers. Unless it is immediately a score by the defense.

  • Astute Ute

    Listening to 1080Fan online (Oregon Radio) Pretty interesting, I have never listened to another schools radio hosts…except for TDS local radio ugh. They think in order for Utah to win TW7 needs to beat them in the air.

    • TorontoUte

      Sounds accurate to me

  • 1standshort

    Royce under 100, lock down corner play and Travis throws 70%

  • Tony

    Not sure we can score enough points to keep up with them. But if it becomes a defensive battle I like our chances.

  • UtahMan

    The run game has drastically improved and our O-line gets good push throughout the game. We need to limit their possessions if we don’t want a completely gassed defense in the 4th Q.

  • oc_ute

    hand the ball to the official on a TD. sorry i’ll never get the 14 point swing / fan deflation out of my head…. someone had to say it : )

  • Rick

    Play physical and beat them in the trenches. It is how Stanford beat them two years in a row.

    • bigmanUTE

      I think utah will do just that. thinking 24-27 utah in a nail biter

    • U-Diddy

      Good point. Stanford beat them by getting O-line push and getting 3-4 yards every play, and capping off long drives with TDs. Keeping their offense sidelined and from getting in rhythm. For us to win with that style, our O-line will have to run block better than it has thus far, which I think it can do.

  • U-Diddy

    We throw downfield to open the running lanes. Remember last year, that was how we got off to such a great start against Oregon. Their secondary is much weaker this year after losing two CBs to the NFL, but their front 7 remains relatively stout. If we can throw in chunks, Booker will be unleashed and this game could be very interesting.

  • THEeyepatch

    So what happens if…

    Sark-7 only wins 7 games this year at USC? Would he be fired? Any thoughts Ute fans?

  • Hockeybeard

    From what I have gathered from various media sources, is that Sark was already in a bad spot when he was hired. Lane Kiffin already soaked up a bunch of the good-will/nostalgia people had for Pete Carroll’s assistants, and then when Sark was hired, there was a portion of boosters who thought it was a VERY underwhelming hire. Sark didn’t really wow at Washington, and he’s not wowing currently. Couple that with the bad loss to Stanford, the loss to some teams last year (like Utah) and the whole drunk booster dinner fiasco, and I would say Sark’s seat is just about the hottest in the Pac-12, with Leach right there or just behind.

    • THEeyepatch

      I completely agree with your assessment and on another note, people say Washington was in a bad spot (an 0-12 team) when they hired Sarkisian but there was no where else to go but up. He also didn’t coachup any of his 4/5 star guys. They had one good season like their freshman or sophomore seasons, then stagnated.

  • Pat Haden is gone.

    If he loses to Notre Dame he will be fired this season. He will be fired next season not winning the PAC 12.

  • oc_ute

    as previously mentioned….. i listen to FOX and ESPN LA all day. He’s in the hot seat for sure. This was Pat Haden’s hire. He embarrassed Pat with the drunken stupor. If he has a poor football season, he’s out. It probably would have lasted another year if it weren’t for the booster part fiasco. Pat now has a reason to fire him and save face. No excuses at troy anymore. full scholy qty. 4-5 star recruits knock on your door. win or else.

    • THEeyepatch

      What a tough spot to be in, then you make a complete idiot of yourself by getting drunk at a booster dinner. But here’s another thought, Chip Kelly is sinking faster than the Titanic in Philly and could be looking for work in another 2-3 years, should you hang on to Sark for at least within that time frame hoping that if Chip Kelly becomes available you [USC] can get him?

  • Astute Ute

    I kinda hope they enjoy the mediocrity. I do think he will go before Leach. WSU know’s Leach takes awhile to get his system in place, as long as Craig James’ kid isn’t there he will out last Sark. CJK5H haha. I have not been impressed with Sark and could not understand what made him the hottest coach on the market. Speaking of hot seats, how long does Texas stay with Charlie Strong?

    • THEeyepatch

      I’d give Strong another year, maybe two if things still look like they do today. Cal got really lucky that they missed that FG, but they also looked like the route was on until their ‘D’ ran into that wall and looked like the Cal ‘D’ of last year.

  • leftyjace

    Somebody needs to go get ocgreg on here to provide his input.

    • Hockeybeard

      In more towards a general thought – That is the next step for this board, is to be recognized by fans of opposing teams as a place to come post leading up to the games.

      • THEeyepatch

        That’s just gonna take time. Also, if opposing Pac-12 fans come here to ‘check it out’ and all we are talking about is TDS this and TDS that, they might not be too interested posting on a board that seems obsessed with a team not in the Pac-12? Just food for thought.

        • Hockeybeard

          Luckily – all that TDS talk will be shut away in vault that you can choose to enter on your own time.

    • Wilson's Mustache

      OCGreg is actually one of my favorite posters there.

    • Hockeybeard

      Complete with the absolute Fail-flop off the runaway cart…love it.

  • THEeyepatch

    Do whatever it takes…

    To watch The Drive tonight on Pac-12 Networks!

  • Hockeybeard

    The Drive: Pac-12 Football

    Airs tonight 7PT/8MT

  • SouthJordanUte

    I’m excited. Does kind of suck that it’s a shared show with OSU. Not really interested in seeing them at all.

    • JDub1942

      It will be good because it will show the difference between a lower tiered and an upper tiered team, hopefully we are upper tiered by the end of the season anyway.

    • THEeyepatch

      It’s gotta be kinda interesting to you with two former Ute coaches at OSU? Plus you have a team what some people think is on the rise and a team that has taken a step back.

      • Puget Ute

        The Beavs have THREE former Ute coaches, don’t they? Andersen, Sitake, and Ilaisa Tuiaki.

        • Hockeybeard

          And a handful of Utah recruits/targets from last year.

        • THEeyepatch

          I completely forgot about Ilaisa Tuiaki, good catch.

          • Puget Ute

            That was a big loss. He was a great coach.

    • UteStuckInSeattle

      I don’t doubt that the pairing of Utah and OSU for this season is on purpose BECAUSE of the coaching connections.

      Built-in drama.

  • JDub1942

    I cant even tell you how excited I am for this. I have been wanting this since the first season of “The Drive”

  • Ute Bc

    Very excited. Also, Gary needs to work on his mad face…He looks confused.

    • FormerUteSax

      I think he looks drunk

  • javadave

    Why does GA’s nose always look like he’s been drinking?

    • UtahSig

      Uh, because his nose?

  • UtahSig

    The Drive on at 8? I have Comcast and it is showing “One on One” at 8 and Women’s Volleyball from 8:30 to 10:30 then the Drive. W.T.F?

    • JDub1942

      Watch it on the xfinity app, pac12now app, or pac-12.com

  • Homer Crimson

    Whitt was on “One on One” BTW. Another good watch.

    UF.N problems today??

    Anyone else having problems with UF.N today (that they didn’t have before?)?

    I log in from work. We have ad-blockers galore (so I’ve never had to deal with the ads). Today I can’t get to the site. Everytime I type in the address, it takes me to an Oasics shoe ad. It’s not a pop-up … its the entire browser page, and in the URL window, it says www.utefans.net/list.php. It’s wierd, and majorly crappy.

    So annoying!! Hope it goes away, otherwise I won’t be able to check that site anymore.

    (for the record, my work uses IE9 as a browser)

  • ttexastim

    Oh … and Tony … suggestion … can we make UH open links in a separate window?

  • 89ute

    I got on, no problem.

  • Tony

    I logged on via browser. Are you on a mobile?

  • Distantute

    I think I’m done with ufn. Was a member for probably close to 10 years but the combination of panhandling and the site’s issues are too much for me (the panhandling being the bigger culprit). Glad to see familiar names over here.

    • Hockeybeard

      I’m honestly more upset with the battle lines being drawn by some posters over there, then anything that WM did or did not do.

  • MV

    It worked fine for me from my mobile. Maybe your should donate again….and again.

    • Hockeybeard

      Good to have you over here MV.

  • Astute Ute

    I hopped on and noticed that the TV was still TBA so I closed and came here.

    • Wilson's Mustache

      Are you the one that does the reddit stuff?

    • Tacoma Ute

      The mod was on vacation and didn’t have time. Yet he had time yesterday to log on and type a post about how much he thinks this site sucks. Hmmmmm.

  • ttexastim

    Wierd. It’s working now. I’m on my work desktop, which has never had problems getting there. I would see the red borders show up then boom: redirect to Oasics shoe ad, but in my browser, not a pop up. I guess I’m good now. 🙂

    • Astute Ute

      No, I am not…unless its bad ass. Then I’ll take credit. Haha. I never posted on UF.N.

  • NorthEZUte

    I don’t log on to UF.N anymore so no problems here 🙂

  • Volleyball 2015 – what happened?

    I mean, I know we graduated a lot of seniors last year, but there are still some super quality players on the team. How could we fall into a “rebuilding” year so soon after being ranked?

  • AZswayze

    Well, they beat Colorado last night in the conference opener, and while they started last season off much better they were 0-3 in their first three conference games. I’m hoping that they are able to turn it on like they did the last month of the 2014-2015 season.

  • leftyjace

    Watching the replay of last night’s game as I work.
    They don’t look too bad. Definitely look better than they did against BYU.
    I love having the Pac-12 stations!
