MSU held on for dear life at home. Utah went on the road and won by 50. A slight difference.

Michigan’s loss to Utah may look better than Michigan State’s win over Oregon.

Kyle Whittingham lost his offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator last December.
Damn good coach.

    The Kings of LA. That’s funny.

    Check out this illustration from ESPN.


    I've had to re-watch the game 3 times

    Good grief, there are so many game balls to give out. Kenneth Scott’s TD in the 2nd quarter is most definitely one.

    I’ve been proud to be a Ute fan for a bazillion years, but yesterday’s game made me blink back some alleged tears. A truly beautiful day and a truly magnificent day to be a Ute fan.

  • Tony

    Yep. Every day is a great day to be a Ute fan, but some days are reeeaallly great.

  • Lellie

    Did I change my name to Loopy Ute?

    • leftyjace

      You sure did. You Loopy guy, you.

  • Opinions on Oregon Game Chat Room Test?

    For those who joined the chat during the Oregon game let me know how you liked it, if it performed well, and what kind of device you were on (desktop, phone, tablet).

    For me I was using the chat on my Android phone via a 4G connection. It was sluggish but worked. The scroll didn’t scroll sometimes and trying to manually scroll it was hard. The layout looked good but the lagginess on cellular took away from it a bit. That may not be because of the chat engine, but rather just using a cell connection.

    Keep in mind that this chat engine is a paid application which we are now in a 14 day evaluation. For the next game we can decide to keep this one, or perhaps demo another one. Layout wise I dig this one.

    Mobile iPhine 6 on safari. Got a little laggy at times. Not sure if that was my internet or the chat. Pretty enjoyable experience

  • Dugway

    Yeah, the pop-out client kept getting in a state where I could see other’s messages, but mine would never show up, or only after 5 minutes or more. I would close the chat and reopen it and it would usually start responding again.

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Worked well on my laptop and iPad. It got a little laggy when there were a lot of people in chat, but that’s bound to happen.

    Overall, it was a great chat! Thanks!

  • Tony

    Anyone take note as to the most users that were chatting at the same time?

  • Brettski

    Great time chatting and watching. I was about a minute behind live on my stream so I had to try my best to not cheat

  • UTE98

    Turning point of the game?

    I’d have to say the failed 2 pt conversion.

    The fake punt return and Hackett’s fake punt should be viewed in the same way. Playing to win. Though I thought it was pretty early for the 2 pt attempt. But that is how Oregon plays, all out, no looking back. Or should I say no looking to the side of the field where the ball is punted? TIC

  • I think the goal line interceptiom

    This year’s Travis vs last year

    One big difference I’ve noticed is that this year’s Travis will sometimes go up to the line and change the play call. He does that a lot. I don’t think he ever did that last year. Is he suddenly smarter now? Did he magically, over the course of one off season, gain the ability to read defenses where he had no such ability last year? I don’t think so. Dave Christensen never trusted Wilson. Looks like that was poor judgment on his part.

  • Tony

    As the QB’s get older their ability to make those calls gets better. Brian Johnson was amazing at doing that in his final year.

  • GadValleyUte

    I was always skeptical of the “DC is keeping Travis down” talk. It appears to me now there was probably some truth there. Not sure if it was just interpersonal conflict, DC not getting how Travis works/thinks, or DC really just being a terrible coach, but Travis seems to have progressed a bunch in his ability to read and react, deal wth pressure and make good decisions with the ball. I wish he would slide and get out of bounds a bit more because an injury to him sets this team back, but you cannot question his love of the game or his heart.

  • The game has slowed down for Travis Wilson. He’s now seeing and reading the defense and no longer forcing throws to what’s not there.

  • Oline that blocks help. Night and day difference. Utah has only played one legit defense in Michigan though.

    • oc_ute

      spot on. pass blocking was tremendous last nite. good thing happen when you get time. routes develop and completed passes !!!!

  • Wilson's Mustache

    I don’t think Travis was allowed to audible much last year. I think he was on a short leash by DC.

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Go back and watch any game last season. Quite a few times per game you would see Travis and the entire team check with the sideline.

    I think Travis was told to either run the play as called or he had the option of checking with the sideline (Dave).

    Outside of that Travis was pretty much on a leash because Christensen had no faith in him, nor did he ever try and put in the effort to build that faith. Christensen wanted HIS guy in there, that was painfully obvious.

    Travis now has an OC that actually WANTS to see him succeed.

  • THEeyepatch

    Not that he’s got smarter, dickhead Dave Christensen is gone! A-Rod is giving Travis the opportunity to be the type of player some of us thought he could be and at times, has shown he could be last night.
