Real excited about how hard the guys played on both sides of the ball. Look at (the Utes) big, powerful lines on both sides of the ball. It wasn a pretty offensive game, but Cody (Vaz) made some great throws on our last scoring drive when we needed it most.

How in the world do you know that or know anything that they done in their lives?? wow, I think the comments here and specially this one are much worse than anything these kids have done.
