i want utah to win... hear me out, fellas...

i want utah to win... hear me out, fellas... 


Cfb is about cohesion and gel.. it's more emotional than professional, and driven by factors such as momentum and tempo, and mired by quicksand and foul tradition... It's about knowing something, and believing in that something more than mechanically approaching something... If your team believes, then they will play like it... If they play without certainty of action, they will lose. If they know five things thoroughly, they are better off than having a slight grasp on twenty things...

Young teams are like recruits... They need to be broken... They need to realize team is the solution to every problem.. they need to be embarrassed and shamed, and robbed of identity, and felled back to fundamental motivators through fundamental actions..

Right now, I'm guessing, UT doesn't know who they are... They may know what they want to be, but they don't have an inkling on how to cross through b from a to get to c... They can't be given anything.. they must earn it for it to be truly their own... The opponent presented at the opening bell is perfect- dangerous but manageable.. they are hungry to notch their hog legs with an sec team, even if that sec team is in recovery.. I want Utah to face a UT team that plays all out, but loses...

It could go either way, in the aftermath... They could lay down and cry.. or, they could get mean and nasty, and play with intelligent abandon for the rest of the season, in attempts to mend their ego.. that is the scrappy team UT needs to be... They are but a ghost in the shadow of what they once were.. they need to become something all their own..

Losing a game like that, it's my opinion, will meld that team into a group of cohesive savages thirsty for regaining their pride, just like a recruit on parris isle around the end of second phase and beginning of third... The only glue in such a dynamic is the drill instructor, who only has feigned control...

Okey will beat them... But friends, Okey will know they've survived a horrific event, if such is the case... Uga, uf, usce, they will pray, but the gobblins will still come and two of those will fall... UT won't notice... UT will only finally realize they've amassed wins when the stadiums they visit quiver, and when opponents fans go out of their way to be nice... Even then, they won't care.. they'll realize their identity is playing hungry and without mercy, and that a strange thing happens when that is sustained: they have more points at the close of a game and people talk about them...

They've gotta be broken first... I want usu to be the team to do it... I wanna see fire and madd desire this season... And that is how it's done...

Thoughts?

The conference we play in is drive enough, we have been down enough. There are plenty of players on this team that have seen losses and already believe our staff. I am sure losses will find themselves soon enough, Utah State is a good 1st game for us  as they are a pretty good team. Having said all that, WE NEED THE WIN!! No way I pull for a team we should beat to beat us, if we win it will be because we played pretty good football. Coming out of the gate I expect us to be ready for this one. GO VOLS!!

I fear mediocraty and playing just enough to slide by more than losing... The conference is what matters... This game needs to be leveraged for maximum results.. maximum results can't be slipping past by a few points, or burying your opponent with ease.. it has to be earned and whatever learned carried with them to the next week... And the next...

This season is a pivot for the program, and for Jones.. it's time to identify who they are... Failing is required... After such, after the embarrassment and pride and blame disappears, and they realize they gotta do it again- they get mean, just like my recruit analogy...

I want a squad of indignant savage scrappers everyone in their right mind fears... I want them to see the results of that mindset, and put their shoulders behind it... And believe.. dang it... Fight...

Sorry but that's crazy. We can't afford to lose to Utah state.

If they won't assume an identity, I wanna see one get forced on them.. ooc isn't as important as in conference.. and I wanna see it happen early... This is almost a perfect setting.

We need to make a bowl. That probably doesn't happen with a loss to Utah State

They can assume an identity just as easily by winning. Like I said: don't overthink.

Everyone that's not a freshman has been broke already. To establish a winning culture, you need to win. You want this class to bring a winning culture. If they lose, they've just fit right into the losing culture here. This is moot because we're going to have our way with this team, but goodness this thread just needs to be deleted.

I'm sorry but that is absurd.  If this program hasn't been 'broken" already in the last 5-6 years...I'd hate to see what "broken" really is....

Plain and simple this program needs Ws and momentum going in to SEC play.

Hard to even take you serious if you don't know who we are playing. We are playing Utah St not Utah.
