Coach Whittingham held his weekly press conference Monday where he discussed the USU game and the Utes upcoming conference clash against San Diego State Saturday.
It's tough to get too excited over a dominate win against a terrible team like Utah State. However, the Utes looked pretty solid and very well could have played down to their opponent but did not. As for this being the most dominate performance Whittingham has ever seen, I think he may need to go re-watch the entire 2004 season.
Utah continued to prove it may have the best receiving core in the conference, even with two of their best receivers out with injury. It will be interesting to see how well they play against a more talented defense in San Diego State.
Whittingham didn't spend much time talking about Utah State as most of the press conference was centered around Utah's game against San Diego State.
The Aztecs defensive line is fairly impressive, though I'm not sure their offensive line is much this year. If this is the case, Utah's defensive line could bully them all night long and make it difficult for San Diego State to get anything going offensively.
Great, Utah's getting set to play Oklahoma! Man, Whittingham sure knows how to talk up an opponent, yeesh. Not that Lynell Hamilton isn't a good back, however he ain't no Peterson and never will be. San Diego State's offense is not nearly as smooth as Oklahoma's and I think they may have some problems against the Utes stingy defense. I'm more concerened about the Aztecs defense, which I think can hurt Utah's passing game. If this is the case, the Utes will need a ground game to even have a prayer of winning.
