    USC beat Colorado the same way they beat Utah. They just have better athletes straight across the board. And Sometimes great athletes make great plays. The same WR that ripped Utah up also ripped up Colorado.

    Utah and Colorado both have great athletes, but not at every single position 2 and 3 deep like USC does, that's a nice advantage to have.

    Michael F'ing Pittman Jr.

    He's a senior this year. He'll make a splash in the NFL when he's drafted next year.

    I have a high school friend that went and played football at Michigan during their dominance years, including when they won the National Championship in 1997, and then transferred to BYU. He stated that the biggest thing that separates the elite teams from the rest of the pack is the depth after that first string. Many of the elite teams will have that extra special player or two that is above everyone else, but the rest of the 1st stringers across the board are usually pretty similar, and then the talent at the 2nd/3rd string drops off dramatically at the standard schools compared to the elites.

    One of the downsides to having a team full of elites is having to babysit all of the egos. Many of the players on elite teams were drafted thinking they were drafted because they are the very best. When everybody has a superiority complex it can drag down the team.

    Mike Leach had a very valid point when he came out after playing Utah and said he's got a team full of fat, entitled free agents who only play for themselves.

    I think USCís defense is better and that may be the difference in this game vs Oregon.

    Sorry Utah...

    You act like Utah is perfectly capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    I didn't say I was betting on UCLA, I just mentioned they also control their own destiny, which is something everyone seems to be overlooking.

    Utah is certainly in the driver's seat with the easiest remaining schedule.

  19. #376
    Yeah you never know. The Pac can be crazy. Iím just glad the Utes seem to have snapped the November curse.


  20. #377
    We'll see next week, if UCLA wins the November curse is still intact and suddenly UCLA will be sitting pretty. The toughest game left on UCLA's schedule is Utah.

    Let's not forget the first year Utah was in the PAC and managed to give away the south with a loss on the last day to the worst team in the league. That game still hurts.

    Go Utes :-)

    I recently watched them play against Arizona State. They are playing really good football right now. Their offense was rolling all over the Sun Devils. Not really sure why they couldn't manage to win at the beginning of the season, but they are looking dangerous right now. If Utah overlooks them they'll get bit.
