Can't say I'll be rooting for you. But you beat our ass and you should have. I'd like to think the game would have been much better had Hall not choked and Anae called a better game. Maybe we still lose, but it would have been much better to watch.

Agreed. Utah deserved to win and is the better team. Congrats to them. I'd rather see Utah go to a BCS game than Boise State or TCU.

Hall obviously made some terrible decisions and this loss is 90%+ on him. I liked that our offense showed some more creativity than we showed against TCU.

But it's clear that BYU was outcoached as well as outplayed in both of their losses this season.

I'm not going to get all shitty and bag on Hall too much. He had a bad day. Anae also put him in a bad situation. Before the game, I was under the impression that Utah had way better athletes. I take a little comfort that BYU and Utah appear to be about the same. Utah does have better coaching.

A great win for Utah. BYU could have made it a hell of a lot more exciting had they not suddenly abandoned the run in the 3rd quarter when the game was tight.

They must have thought that they needed to make a splash in order to recapture the momentum, but you know, the running game was really effective. BYU never made Utah adjust to anything it was doing because it never stuck to one thing or another. Hall tried to give it away more than 6 times...most definitely his worst game, ever.

Agreed. At least half of the batted passes could have been picks. And I put it maybe 60% on Hall, 40% on Anae (the BYU screwups I mean ... obviously the Utes get credit too)
