Utes sleepwalk through win over Wyoming

New, 51 comments

I thought the offense would continue its explosion tonight and it really never materialized. It's too bad because I've mentioned a few times over the course of the last couple of weeks that style parts are, justifiable or not, needed. 

Well the Utes didn't get any style points tonight. 

Still, it was an okay win. Certainly better than last year's close call in Salt Lake City. But it was not perfect and probably the most uninspired I've seen Utah this season. That happens when you're 5-0 (now 6-0) and playing a weak team. You can't get up for all twelve games and letdowns do happen. They're fortunate this letdown turned out to be a win. 

With that said, Jordan Wynn had a bad game. Three picks against Wyoming is inexcusable and every one of them was due to his poor throws into deep coverage. Sometimes interceptions do happen and occasionally they're created through unbelievable athletic ability from the defense. That was not the case on any of Wynn's throws. He threw interceptions. He didn't have his passes intercepted and that's the big difference. If your pass is picked off, it's not always something you did. 

But every one of his three interceptions were his fault. Counting the one last week, he's had four in the last two games.

That has to improve if Utah is going to be a legitimate BCS buster. Thankfully, I have all the confidence in the world in Wynn and expect to see a better performance next week.

So there you have it. A 30-6 ho-hum win. I'll take it because Utah remains undefeated and still registered a blowout. 

It doesn't mean there aren't things they need to work on, though.
