The Morning Blitz: Daily Utah links

So is it time to panic yet? 

The Utes looked pretty mediocre Saturday and that was against a worse than mediocre opponent. What's going to happen when they're actually tested? Maybe I don't want to find out. In fact, I might spend the entire Oregon game hiding behind my fingers. 

Or am I overreacting? I hope so. I do have a flair for the dramatic. But c'mon, you can't tell me that performance inspires confidence. But it is just one game and it certainly won't define the season. 

I mean, that game was just weird, wasn't it? For those not actually at the stadium, it felt like they were filming it from some outpost in Antarctica. The crowd looked disinterested and so did the opponent. For Utah, I'm sure that made it harder to find the needed fire to demolish what should have been an easy foe. I don't know. I think road teams tend to play better when the crowd is actually into the game and loud. Neither seemed to be the case Saturday and I'm sure it trickled down to the players on the field. 

Of course, that sounds like I'm making excuses and I am. I'm trying to find any logical excuse for what happened Saturday. 

Anyone want to offer up some other explanations? I'm all ears.
