Will they live up to the expectations or end up another mediocre PAC squad? Time will tell and I like their chances.
Where were the Northwestern highlights in that vid?
I do think there is a good chance that Utah could break through and make some noise on a national level this year. But the Huskies are still my choice to win the Pac 12 title. But I do admit to a Husky fans' bias.
Dude, they were playing with backup QB, RB and top LB and WR out. Each one of them All Conference players.
I was looking for highlights of that game, which most likely would include players who were participating in that game. Why should I care who the hell didn’t play?
If in fact “each one of them were all conference players”, does that mean they only play in conference games in the PAC and want no part of the B1G boys?
If the Utes want to win the conference, contend for a playoff spot, achieve national respect, etc, those “all conference guys” need to step up and play all the games.
Chase Hansen played 6 games,
Including the PAC 12 Championship, with a ruptured disc in his back. He missed the bowl game and the NFL Combine because of surgery on his back. Still signed as a UDFA with the Saints.
Huntley was out with broken collar bone.
Moss was out after surgery for torn meniscus.
Covey out for torn ACL and MCL, plus broken wrist which he played with for about half the season.
Hansen was runner up for DPOY
Two weeks in and the Utes could be the PAC’s only remaining playoff contender. Damn I hope they stay healthy.
Hope tOSU’s running QB Justin Fields can stay healthy.
If he does, and your team stays healthy, we could be headed for that Ute v Buckeye showdown we been wanting. Or at least I think you want it
It’s early, but both teams have looked pretty solid so far
Utah looks the part so far.
New kid at QB at USC had a good first game, as a rookie!
Yes, straight hijacking this thread!!!
Injuries piling up has always taken their toll on Utah in October and November. Hope we can avoid those.
We’ll know more about Kedon Slovis after this weekend against the BYU Zoobs. Then the real test against Utah the following Friday.
Concur, that young man looked very good. See what happens after the other PAC teams get some game film on him, but I like his chances.
Did not get to watch as the ESPN channel at the motel in Ely, NV turned away from the Stanford at USC game to an Asian Videogamer show after the first two possessions. By all accounts, Slovis looked good. However, subsequent game tape analysis showed much of Slovis’ success due to a very sloppy game played by Stanford defense. Everyone so far is trying to prevent SC wideouts from torching them long, leaving short passes open over the middle. Also, Stanford was unable to get pressure on Slovis.
So what you are saying is, given that “subsequent game tape analysis” statement, the Utes defense, and all future opponents of SC should have a very good idea of what SC’s and Slovis’s tendencies will be. Sounds very similar to what was said in post #14!
By all accounts, your prognostications skills seem to be improving as you are following my lead. Good to see all my hard work is paying off and you are finally coming around
Similar but different. Let me help you out. Slovis performance appeared to be more due to Stanford’s poor Defense than what Slovis did. Study of Stanford’s game film will tell you what not to do. Not following your lead at all.
I think Slovis’ world changes the moment he faces a defense that puts pressure on him.
How can beating up Mrs Potato Head be any kind of CFB preview? If you are looking to contend for a Natty, why would you schedule a Big Sky opponent? Nothing like taking the weekend off when you need to do some work
Wait, wasn’t tOSU running up the score (RUTS) at Florida Atlantic to start the season?
Utah sat at least 4 starters and had most all starters out by halftime. They were trying to preserve health for when it will be needed, while getting backups needed playing time. It was reported that Utah has totaled just 160 plays on offense, lowest in the PAC-12 and amongst the lowest in the nation. That’s proof of their strategy to preserve the team.
Rest assured, you will see Moss get a heavy load on Friday night. Expect all starters to be back in action. Expect a very physical game from Utah.
Honestly, I don’t get the “Wait, wasn’t tOSU RUTS aim Florida Atlantic to start the season?” Statement. Can I get the English version T?
Can’t wait till Friday’s game as it is, in my opinion, what will determine if the PAC has a playoff contender. Utes win, they still contend. If they don’t, they won’t. Utes can only afford one loss to be considered a contender, and that loss cannot be against an unranked team who just got beat by BYU.
Best of luck Friday and I will save ya a spot on the Buckeye bandwagon T
