    Predict the score, win a prize!!!

    Every single preseason prediction had the UTES 5th in the South.

    They finished 2nd. That's improvement, any way you slice it.
    The frustration is what-could-have-been, and I get that, but they did improve.
    That's important

    Drop them all. Only counts as a win if it's by more than three TDs.

    #1 Clemson only won by five against a 3-9 team. They should drop out of the playoff.

    Alabama is up by less than a TD in the 4th quarter to an unranked team. They should be penalized too.

    Iowa only an 8-point win against the worst Nebraska team in decades. Drop them out of the playoff.

    What about Oregon? Only a 10 point win against the Beavers. Drop them out of the top 25 altogether.

    PAC 12 South Division Co-Champions

    Congrats and thanks to the seniors. It's been a great year and I'm excited to see who and where we play in bowl season. A 10-win season is a major accomplishment in this conference.

    Yup, this rationalization for a bad offense and another late-season collapse with "well, before the season started I didn't predict 9-3, so it's ok" crap has got to end.

    Expectations and acceptance of results adjust as the season wears on, eaking out a win over the second worst conference team at home with such awful offense should never be accepted. This is the third season in the last 5 where we've pissed away a chance at the conference championship because of our god awful offense. If we had even a mid-tier Pac-12 offense in those years we'd probably be celebrating at least one Pac-12 championship and a berth in the Rose Bowl.

    People need to get over their former MWC mindset, it's time to step up into the big boy shoes and demand better. We should NEVER see a 10/26 for 108 yards and 1 TD, 1 INT stat line from a senior QB who is playing at home against a bad team in his last Pac-12 game ever.

    Great regular season! Looking forward to a new bowl game. I would love to get holiday or foster farms

    Best record in the south. 9-3.
    Got the wash/asu monkey off our back.
    Beat multiple ranked teams along the way.
    Lots of exciting football.
    Great defense.
    Beat 6 bowl eligible teams.

    Of note only 2 pac12 teams played harder schedules than Utah this year (wash/cal) both will likely finish 6-6 or maybe cal 7-5.
    Our opposing teams win% was 59% (wash was 64%, cal 61

    It was damn fine regular season year and I am extremely proud to be a UTE fan. This is definitely the best utah team that since 2008 and they played a great season.

    Hopefully the stars line up right and we can get the holiday or foster farms bowl.

    GO UTES!!!!

    As crappy as the offense was, I have to say that Williams was a warrior.

    He got rocked today, a lot. And kept coming back in. Props to that dude.

    yep we exceeded preseason expectations

    by RUUTES
    2015-11-28 17:46:34

    And we won probably 6 of 9 on the backs of our D. But we are at a hard ceiling unless we make radical changes and long term improvements on O.

    I'm celebrating 9 wins. But as expressed above...mourning what so clearly could have been....should have been in 2 cases.

    Actually, Utah finished tied for first and are co-champions of the PAC-12 South.

    by TheBaron

    Of course, Utah will lose the tiebreaker and not appear in the championship game, but we are inarguably tied for first and co-champions, nonetheless. Don't let anybody claim otherwise.

    When I listen to KW talk about the Utes, he sounds exactly like most Ute fans - beyond frustrated with the offensive incompetence to the point he wants to scream and start smashing $#!+.

    by TheBaron

    The difference is that it's Ute fans' job to get drunk and have a good time, while it's literally Kyle's job to fix the offense regardless of whatever excuses are out there. He's clearly as frustrated with the offense as we are and yet he's been woefully incapable of fixing the offense. New year, same $#!+ and he knows it better than anybody.

    That should piss me off, but instead it softens my perspective of Kyle. He really is trying his hardest to fix the offense and he's drowning like a quadriplegic in the Mariana Trench without a life jacket.
