    First of 4 B-747-400s that Delta will be retiring by the end of October. This one had over 100,000 hours. I flew her last on 9/01/05 from Detroit to Narita. We would double crew that flight and I elected to fly the 2nd half. My logbook shows that I made the landing in Narita. Over 6500 miles and 12.8 hours. Delta will have all of the B-747-400s gone in the 2017/18 time frame. DC-10s gone; B757s gone when an expensive maintenance check comes due; B727s gone, DC-9s gone. Geez, I'm getting old.

    Do you really want to make that comparison?

    Because our next conference game following WSU was a 62-41 loss to the Scum Devils, and our coach was left in an airport parking lot with a pink slip and bus fare.

    Fight On!

    Wazzu is tough team to play down 3 Safeties off your depth chart...

    Not having Carter was obviously the biggest blow, but Henderson and Godfrey were also out of action Saturday...

    "TCU has fared a little better in the B12"? Um... No. Worse both seasons, actually.

    by TheBaron
    2014-09-30 19:09:44

    In spite of the PAC-12 being a tougher conference than the Big 12, TCU has done worse transitioning to the Big 12 than Utah has done transitioning to the PAC-12.

    Utah's first year in the PAC-12: 4-5 in conference, 8-5 overall
    TCU's first year in the Big 12: 4-5 in conference, 7-6 overall

    Utah's second year in the PAC-12: 3-6 in conference, 5-7 overall
    TCU's second year in the Big 12: 2-7 in conference, 4-8 overall

    TCU is 3-0 right now, but they haven't played anybody with a pulse. Their next two games are against Oklahoma and then on the road against Baylor. They could always find a way to win those games, but it's a pretty safe bet that TCU is about to start 0-2 in conference play.

    By no measure whatsoever has TCU fared better than Utah making the transition to a P5 league. It also doesn't take a genius to look at BYU vs. TCU and Utah and conclude that BYU would struggle significantly more than the two clearly superior programs we have data on. The safest bet when projecting how BYU might do would be to add another couple of losses to Utah and TCU's results. BYU not only lacks comparable talent in its starters, but also lags significantly behind both TCU and Utah in the single most important metric for predicting P5 success - quality depth.

    I know it causes BYU fans great cognitive dissonance, but only a fool would look at Utah and TCU and conclude that BYU would fare better. BYU lost at home by 44 points to Utah's 8-5 team and also lost to BOTH of Utah's 5-7 teams. Both TCU and Utah have a 4 game winning streak against BYU. It takes a major zoob to see those results and conclude BYU is a better team that would totally walk into the PAC-12 or the Big 12 and impress. It would be a blood bath.

    Anyone else get a call from the BYU ticket office today?

    by inUtes

    I bought tickets through BYU football last year for the Utah game and received my 3rd call from them this year. Each time they call they try to sweeten the deal. Today they offered by 4 tickets for the Utah State game and they would give me 4 seats for 3 other gams for free!!!

    RE: I thought the same thing when I read that post. How is that not on the coaches?

    by cbm

    I like Wilson's grit, but I think to win the completion percentage and poise in the pocket have to improve. But I really don't put all that on Travis. He has to deal with a new OC every year and learn a new offense each year. It wasn't fair to Alex in SF, and it hasn't been fair to Travis here.

    Seriously can't think back to a time since BJ when a QB really improved while at Utah. How is this not on the coaches? This is the most important position on the field and yet probably has been the worst managed and coached for years.

    It seems like players on the defensive side of the ball and special teams are coached up to and sometimes above what seems to be expected of them, but I'm not sure how often I see that happen with those on offense. Especially those that play QB.

    Whenever I hear about a coach being too critical I think of John Robinson.

    by UtahUte72

    When he was head coach at Tampa and they were suffering through a winless season. When asked about the execution of his players after another loss, his reply was, "I'm in favor of it."

    Talk about being tough on your players.
