    My thoughts on the Colorado game

    by HCHooligan
    2014-11-25 13:29:00



    I'm actually really nervous. I fear AZ has a chance to beat us twice.

    Here's to hoping we rebound before we face the hungry Buffs!

    I did pick us to win in the Fink & McGregor Predict the Score contest, so we've got that going for us...

    Utah Record Book Update

    by cald22well
    2014-11-25 13:12:35

    Travis Wilson passed Frank Dolce for 7th all time in career passing yards, he now sits at 4839. He is 269 away from passing Mike Fouts for 6th and 365 from passing Alex Smith for 5th. Considering that Colorado is the final game, Wilson could accomplish this if he starts the last 2 games.

    Devontae Booker passed Darrell Mack for rushing yards in a season and sits at 4th on the list with 1255. That puts him 265 yards away from John White IV's record. My prediction: He goes for over 200 against Colorado and then breaks 1600 in the bowl game. The biggest difference between JWIV and Booker is touchdowns. White had 15 that year, Booker only has 8. Booker needs 4 TDs just to move into the top 10 list for a single year.

    Nate Orchard moved into a tie for 3rd for TFLs in a single season. 1 more will tie him for 2nd, but he needs 8 more to tie Joe Clausi for most in a season. On the career list though, he did pass Trevor Reilly for 4th all time. With 1 more he will tie Jason Kaufusi for 3rd, but would need 10 more to take 1st place from Luther Ellis and Filipo Mokofisi.

    As far as sacks go, Orchard extended his single season record and is only 3 away from John Frank's career record. Dimick got his 10th sack, putting him at 8th in a single season. More significantly though, that makes Orchard and Dimick the first Utah Duo to ever have double digit sacks in a single season.

    Tom Hackett broke his own record for punting yards in a season, pushing his season total to 3396. He also moved up to 5th on the career punting yards list with 7668. Next year, he should shatter Sakoda's record of 10188 punting yards in a career.

    Andy Phillips tied Joe Phillips for #2 in field goals in a season with 20. With 3 more over the last two games, he will break Louie Sakoda's record for field goals in a season. With similar production next season, he has a good shot to break Sakoda's record of 57 field goals in a career.

    RE: OK - new post about bowl possibilities...

    by NarfUte
    2014-11-25 11:12:23

    The Holiday is an 'Upper tier' bowl, they pick after the Alamo.


    Here's the pecking order:

    #1 College Football Playoff.
    #1A Automatic berth to one of the New Years Six bowl games
    #2 The Alamo Bowl versus Big 12 #2.
    #3 The Holiday Bowl versus Big Ten #4.
    #4 The Foster Farms Bowl versus Big Ten #6.
    #5 The Sun Bowl versus ACC #4.
    #6 The Las Vegas Bowl versus Mountain West #1.
    #7 The Cactus Bowl versus Big 12 #6.[2]

    That makes me think Utah is most likely going to Vegas or El Paso

    It's not just another game for me

    by jockohomo
    2014-11-25 15:01:38

    Because it's the last game of the regular season, it's not just another game, at least to me. It has extra importance.

    If we win, we'll get to 8 wins and I'll feel a lot better about 8-4 regular season than 7-5.

    If we win, we'll have a winning record in conference for the first time ever, and I'll feel a lot better about 5-4 than 4-5.

    If we win, it'll take some of the bad taste out of my mouth from the UA debacle.

    If we win, we might get to go to a slightly better bowl, and I'll be more pumped up to potentially travel to attend it.

    If we lose, I will feel absolutely crappy about how the season ended and about being the only conference win for CU.

    CU isn't yet a "rival" and I don't need somebody to put a clever label on the game or give it a name, but because it's the last conference game of the year, it has some extra importance, at least for me, and creates heightened tension and expectations.

    GO UTES!!

    SDSU jumped out to an 11 point lead. After that, the teams played very evenly for the rest of the game.

    by loyter
    2014-11-25 09:00:13

    They had contrasting styles. SDSU played smothering man to man defense, but BYU has some scorers in Haws and Collinsworth. Haws hit a couple of huge shots to send the game into overtime. Offensively, BYU relies on wild dribble drives and jacking up quick shots and then scrambling after rebounds. Haws is very good at getting his shots, even with a tiny window of time to do so.

    BYU dropped back into a ward ball 2-3 zone and forced the Aztecs to beat them from outside. One of the Aztecs ended up with 6 three-pointers, after hitting only 4 combined threes in their previous 3 games. It was a smart defensive scheme for SDSU, who isn't a great shooting team.

    In the second overtime, BYU looked like they got tired and started missing those quick shots, which led to SDSU extending the lead.

    It was a great college basketball game to watch. BYU was impressive. Rose does a great job with the personnel on his roster. The rivalry game down there will be very interesting.

    The mating habits of Zoobosapien are peculiar.

    by High Uintas

    As bizarre as the habits of the male Zoobosapien seem to us, they are somehow effective in attracting attention from the female of the species, although telling the difference between the sexes can be difficult at times.

    I don't know. You ever hang around real hardcore potheads? You know, the ones who talk about weed like it's their only child, and know far more about that plant than your run of the mill botanist.

    So, I watched the football in 60 replay last night of the UA game.

    by USS Utah
    2014-11-25 14:26:14

    Utah was in a position to cut the lead to 4 [edit] (21-17) with a third and 3 inside the 30 -- this, despite just having a punt return for a TD called back by a penalty. At that point, the 3rd quarter ended, and the weather worsened as the 4th began. a bad snap led to a sack taking Utah out of field goal range.

    On the previous Arizona possession, Hunter Dimick went out with an injury and did not return. Next Wildcat possession saw a long run by Wilson up the middle for a touchdown.

    Next Utah possession ended with an INT off a tipped ball, which was followed by another Wilson TD on a run up the middle.

    Utah changes QBs, and Mannion throws a pick six.

    The wheels came off big time in the 4th quarter, and Utah was struggling early, but for a moment, at least, Utah was threatening to get back into the game.

    It made me feel a little better, and helped be back away from the ledge.

    The only way Utah loses to Colorado is if they can't recover from that 4th quarter and they let Arizona beat them twice. Booker should have a very nice day against the Buffs, and the rest of the offense should be able to do enough to get the win.

    Last year, Utah was one play away from a comfortable win against Colorado. Unfortunately, a Jake Murphy TD catch was instead ruled a touchback as it appeared he fumbled at the goal line.

    I was listening to Cowherd on the way to an appt. He had Mark Brunell on talking about Sanchez' success under a new coach.

    by UTE98
    2014-11-25 14:07:17

    Basically Cowherd and Brunell were discussing the mentality of a defensive minded coach vs. an offensive minded coach and how a QB is to play.

    Sanchez who absolutely sucked under Rex Ryan in NY is now tearing it up in Philly, meanwhile Vick is absolutely stinking it up in NY.

    Made me think... I'll just leave that there for you to think about.

    At the beginning of the season, did you honestly believe the football team would have wins over all 4 California teams?
