The Graham Anderson Show 11.2.11

The University of Utah won a Pac-12 game!!!  After an 0-4 start, the U finally put all the pieces together to beat a not that fantastic Oregon State squad last Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium.  John White IV dazzled with 200+ yards rushing and Jon Hays, well, he didn’t turn the ball over four times.  Can this team win out in conference play?  Which team will show up this week at Arizona?

As for the Cougs, a tough loss to a semi-struggling TCU team last Friday night.  Many starting to complain about the mistakes made by Riley Nelson, sort of forgetting the disaster that was BYU’s special team play.  For now, Nelson is QB1….I think people are more interested to know if that’ll be the case come September, 2012.  The next two weeks will quite possibly be the most boring weeks in the history of BYU football….I can’t wait!

Utah – 54, BYU – 10….What in the world just happened?  In one of the most bizarre games in the history of the rivalry, the University of Utah absolutely destroyed BYU in every facet of the game, forcing 7 turnovers, racking up 500 yards of total offense, and then finishing the game with 47 unanswered points.  Say what you will about how and why this all happened, but in the end, Utah just has better players and better coaches than BYU.

12 of the last 14 years the BYU-Utah game has been decided by 7 points or less.  The last 6 games have been split evenly.  Utah is 4-3 in Provo during the last 14 years.  Normally we have a full season to prepare for this game, and we usually have a pretty good idea about each team.  This year, there are more uncertainties than ever before.  After an offseason of hype, is Jake Heaps as good as everyone thought he was?  Have the Utah’s players grasped Norm Chow’s offense yet?  Does Brandon Doman know what he’s doing?  Amidst all of the questions there are two things that we know for certain….Bronco is going to be wearing old khaki pants, a black belt, and his Band of Brothers tee, and this is going to be a spectacular game.

How did I not know that Bronco Mendenhall used to rock a ponytail before he coached at BYU?  Football season is fast upon us, and for those of you that live in Utah, that means hatred, malice, and irrational fandom is swirling at an all-time high.  BYU and Utah are both coming into the season looking at a completely new landscape, but still holding on to high hopes and high expectations.  John Wells Stevens joins me to break down the upcoming Cougar season.  Bubba Brown, Daily Utah Chronicle sports writer, breaks down the upcoming University of Utah season, and R.J. Rice, former University of Utah almost All-American safety, breaks down the ups, downs, and in-betweens of fall camp.
