Go Utes! 7-0! Our gang it is the jolliest that you have ever seen.

I am up a bit late considering that I have just contracted what feels like is going to be a pretty nasty cold.  Nevertheless, I feel like I need to suck it up and post about my 7-0 Utes.  

7-0 feels pretty good, in spite of the fact that there are plenty of areas that this team needs to work on.  I feel that there were a lot of positives to come out of today's game: the first blocked punt in years, zero turnovers, barely a sign of a penalty flag and the amazing defense.  Yet I feel a bit nervous about the Ute's inconsistencies on offense and horrible pass game.  

But how could anyone really complain about being 7-0?  Regardless of their deficiencies, this team seems to always find a way to win.  Everyone would love to see a reincarnation of the 04' Utes, but I am not sure I will ever see a team that good in my lifetime again.  This team, however, shows a lot of heart and the games have undoubtedly been more exciting this year than in 04.

One final note, any Ute fan that is still intimidated and/or  scared of BYU needs to visit the U's  famed mental health hospital and have their head looked at.  This group of Utes have the ability, talent and motivation to win -  and I believe they will.

By the way, I still need a ticket to Saturday's game.

I also just got done posting about the Utes! 7-0!

I'm still undecided about giving you my ticket. I'll try to let you know soon.

Go Utes! At least all of our hard games are at the end of the season. The way we're playing right now gives us a good chance of running the regular season table, but I'm pretty sure that we won't get a crappy level team like Pitt. If we go to a BCS game I want us to be good enough to have a chance at winning. I'd rather go to the Vegas bowl than be this years Hawaii. Call me crazy. But we've got such a good track record of showing up to big games, it's hard to think that we wouldn't represent well. After watching the Florida game though, they'd run all over us.
