    Gary is done.

    Pick 6 AND a fumble on a punt (not by the returner; a blocker).

    Didn't Gary just get a big raise from the AD, his buddy? I think that almost guarantees him at least one more year.

    I thought Gary was on a 6 year contract with a large buyout. OSU paid $3M to Wisconsin for Gary's last buyout, and he will owe OSU $2.5M to $3M if he leaves for another job elsewhere.

    If they fire him without cause (i.e. fire him for a losing record) it seems they will owe him the rest of his contract, which would be $11.2M after this year.

    Seems like a hefty cost. But then again Oregon thought it a bargain to pay Mark Helfrich that much to GTFO of Eugene.

    For kicks I looked up the cost to fire certain coaches. This is the cost to fire the following coaches this year:
    RichRod - $8.9M
    Todd Graham - $14.3M
    Matt Wells - $2.7M
    Jim Mora - $15.1M
    Bronco Mendenhall - $14.5M

    Nick Saban - $23.3M and a lifetime of serious-as-a-heartattack death threats against the AD

    Chris Petersen - $16M
    The Pirate from Pullman - $4.9M
    Kyle Whittingham - $12.3M

    Kalani Sitake - $27k in food from the Bishops Storehouse and a calling as a mission president

    8. Utah (2-0)Last week: 8
    Result: Won at Brigham Young 19-13
    Next up: vs. San Jose State
    Comment: Not enough cupcakes left on the schedule (inside or outside the Pac-12) for the Utes to glide into the postseason. To reach six wins, they’ll need to beat at least one of Stanford/Oregon/Colorado/L.A.s/Washingtons.

    And I think he's wrong about one thing: I'll guarantee we beat one of those teams listed; I just worry about pooping the bed against one of the arizonas.

    I can't imagine why you'd worry about that.

    One the one hand, I want to rip Wilner for hating on Utah for doubting us going bowling.

    On the other hand, freaking score some TD's.

    We should have beaten ND by more and we should have beaten BYU by 3 TD's.

    If we can't score TD's, we may be in trouble. Who would have thought the problem is our run game and the pass game looks good?

    Ha ha.

    Where is DHC? I think Shyne is a bigger blow than we realize.

    Yeah, moss doesn't impress me much (thanks, Shania!). I think teams will load up the backfield with dbs against us.

  12. #1092
    That would be my strategy. Load the box, let us pass and then expect us to fall on our faces in the red zone.

    It's worked so far! I still haven't seen enough of our offense to conclude that we will be bowl eligible.

    True, but how could any Utah fan not be nervous about Arizona?

    Which means almost nothing for me as a Utah fan. Pac12 fans are probably devastated, though.

    Cal beats Ole Miss.

    About 10 minutes later, SDSU knocks off Stanford.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Down go UCLA, ASU, and Stanford. Two of them to G5 teams. Love it. OSU loses too.

    Decent chance Utah is ranked going into Tuscon.

    I agree with Sancho. Those words should strike fear in the hearts of any long time Utah fan.

    Got an email from CU athletics this morning: "tickets still available for CU vs UW tonight!"

    How do you not sell that game out?
