    I love this result. Two division winners. Two tough playing teams. This could be a great cap to a great season.

    Wonder if it will be Huntley or Shelley.

    Haha. Wilner, everyone, thought we’d drop blow the RedBox just because we’re Utah.

    So will Whittingham and Urban share notes on each’s most recent opponents? Or will conference loyalty prevent that?
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    I bet they’ll share.

    Thanks to LA Ute for organizing the email campaign. I thought it was cheesy and hopeless but maybe it helped. Sometimes we can be too cynical.

    I wonder if that Whit has taken bowls seriously regardless of where in the pecking order, and Leach doesn’t care about them or know how to coach them. Every year Wasu gets killed in its bowl game. It’s obnoxious.

    Ring Ring:. "H'lo..."
    "Kyle, this is Urban. How's the family?
    Shut up and listen. The deep post was open against Northwestern all damn day long. Just have one of your TEs cross in front of the safety. Maybe hit the TE a few times early on the same play.
    Guaranteed score. We hit it about 5 times yesterday. Jason Shelley absolutely can hit this, just have him practice the deep ball all month.
    No, seriously. No, you aren't going to run the ball up the gut against NW, they are just like your team. Just trust me and do it. You aren't listening.
    Never mind. Can I talk to Troy Taylor? He will understand..."

    "Kyle, this is Urban.
    You mean to tell me that UW had the ball for 40 min, crossed the 50 yd line 7 times, got into the Red Zone once, and only scored 3 points on offense?
    This is going to be my easiest bowl win in a decade..."

    Everything is booked except the game tickets, should I wait and get them through the University, or get them on my own?

    Utah finishes #15 in the FPI.

    Northwestern is #41. The 'cats had quality wins vs Purdue, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Iowa. They lost by only 3 to Michigan and by 10 to Notre Dame. This is clearly a good, dangerous team.

    Their computer ranking was forever trashed by their early season flops vs Akron and Duke and by only beating Rutgers by 3.

    Tickets bought, Sec 28 row 1. $81 Each. They had them as low as $18 on StubHub. I'm sure if I waited till the day before, my same seats will probably be $25. Oh well

    One thing I would like the Utes to do differently is to insert a TE to the 5 wideout set. Instead of sending an RB out wide, remove the RB, put a WR out wide and a TE in the slot.

    Harlan on with Bill today...well worth a listed: https://espn700sports.com/bill-riley...-holiday-bowl/
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    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.

    Just heard it. Yes, very interesting, especially about how he wants to tweak the PAC-12 bowl deal. The John Pease interview is also very good.

    Ahem. I note that Harlan went on and on about how the Holiday Bowl folks gave lots of credit to the e-mails they got from Utah fans. Harlan said those e-mail definitely helped by showing the passion of our fan base. You're all welcome, even SU.

    Evidently, and therefore you get no credit for Utah being in the Holiday Bowl.

    @USC followed by WSU at home is a tough back to back, but we get an extra day since USC is a Friday.

    ASU, Cal, UW is a tough three game stretch, and we get a bye after UW to recover.

    This is a pretty nice schedule.

    Wow. Great schedule. Everything is lined up for us!

    Play Washington 11/2 and UCLA 11/9? Doesn't look like a BYE week. (Is it supposed to be UCLA on the 16th?)
