Utes destroy TDS 20-13

3 and 1 is 3 and 1…

First I’m going to do something that is a lot easier to do when you win.  Give a ton of credit to BYU.  You could tell they wanted this game very badly and they left it all on the field.

Thank Goodness we’re better.

First I’ll allow myself a couple of bitches.

1. No way that BYU challenge on the incomplete pass was interpreted correctly.  You can’t mug someone until the tip happens.  Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think so.

2. Eric Rowe was stupid, but I look at Cody Bills and JD Falsev all night and they serious flag Rowe and not them?  Come on.

Other Thoughts.

Kyle Van Noy is good but he never beat Utah.

Massive credit to Sitake for forcing BYU to totally abandon the run.  Credit to Hill and Hoffman for doing enough to stay around.

Travis Wilson remains a warrior.

I think this team is what it is.  This defense has it’s issues but they did what they needed to tonight.  And this team is gutty, the fight and they do what they need to do.  We’re Michael Walker picking off the Mannion pass from being undefeated.  And that is nothing what so ever to sneeze at.

I don’t know what this season will hold for this team.  I think we make a bowl and we might just do more.  But I’m proud of this team.  They fight and they’re a joy to watch.  So let’s try and save the bitching.  I’ll be back with deeper thoughts tomorrow.

Tonight is a good night.

    The sweetest part of this win is that I don’t have to listen to the Zoobie douchebags at work whine about this being their year for 3 years. Maybe they will have forgotten how by then.

    What a great game. Travis Wilson is my new favorite player. The kid was “business as usual” and he took a couple of shots and got up like nothing. That is so nice to see. When he was drilled going out of bounds and slid against the wall, I was cringing but he gets up and doesn’t even dust himself off — business as usual. The kids a gamer and he is the best QB in the state of Utah, hands down. Chuckie and Hill have their talents but Travis is the total package and he’s only a Sophomore. He’s only going to get better.

    Hand it to the coaching, they schemed it perfect against TDS weakness (passing) and made them one-dimensional which was obvious after watching the Texas game. OK everybody, that’s how you beat TDS, if you have the talent on defense, you shouldn’t have any problem Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Boise State, and Utah State. Hell, maybe even Houston shocks them?

    Lets enjoy this win but the real test is on the horizon, UCLA is looking damn good but I think Utah will surprise them. Should be a dogfight and if UCLA is favored, it won’t be by much.

    GO UTES!
