    Good lord. Would not want to tackle that man. I’m looking at you, Cameron Smith.

    Really nice to have an NFL back on our team this year. Hopefully we use him as much as possible. Truck rating has got to be near 100 at this point.

    Gunther/Riley on Practice

    Bernard had a sack on the first play they saw. He’s everything you hoped he’d be.

    Barton looked really good. Not necessarily who you want starting, but as a backup, he’s amazing. They think Bernard will be starting by week two or three.

    Mariner just makes amazing catch after catch. He looks to take Carrington’s role. Not a deep threat, but great closer. Simpkins has potential to be the deep threat.

    3* RB Micah Bernard commits to Utah

    Had offers from Oregon, USC, UCLA, WSU… And some others.

  • Dwight89

    BOOM! Seems like a solid addition to the team. 

  • Arizona tickets

    Looks like I’m gonna have to sell my tickets for the Arizona game, so if anyone in interested shoot me a message.  I have 4 together (E4, Row 2, Seats 5-8).

  • UteThunder

    Message sent.

  • Todd

    I’m interested. How much?

    • Utahute72

      We’re looking for &500

  • UTE98

    Why can’t you people wait for me to log on before selling your tickets to the one home game I’m planning on attending this year?

    I need 5 seats but I’d take a block of four.

    If they aren’t already gone let me know, and we’ll talk.

     

    • Utahute72

      There is one guy that came in before you, but they may be too rich for his blood.  I’ll let you know if he opts out.

    • Puget Ute

      Arizona is the one game I will be able to attend this year as well (I already have tickets though).  Living out of state really stinks for football season! 

  • Uterider

    Dammit ’72 you know I’d take ’em. Wannabe…

    Besides that second time I bought from you I ended up sitting right next to a guy I testified against in Federal Court. Awwwwwwkward, but so worth it.

    • Uterider

      Frankly, I’m hurt…

    • Utahute72

      Didn’t think you’d want four.

      • Uterider

        Well if your deal falls through let me know.

        • pdogphil

          Is anyone still looking for Az tickets? I have 2 w09 row 14.

    Agreed. The heat and the air quality in the valley don’t make the waiting any easier, either. We’ll soon be looking at two weeks to go. I can’t wait.

    Opening day lines…

    Presented for amusement and gauging what to expect the first week since the oddsmakers usually get things pretty close.  Most Pac-12 schools open at home.

    Guess there’s no betting on Utah vs Weber

    Colorado favored by 6.5 over CSU (in Denver, CSU’s second game)

    Oregon State 38.5 point (!) underdog at Ohio State Wifebeaters

    Arizona favored by 15.5 vs TDS

    Arizona State favored by just 17 vs Texas-San Antonio

    Stanford favored by 15 vs SDSU

    Cal favored by 5.5 over UNC

    USC favored by 27.5 vs UNLV

    UCLA favored by 16.5 vs Cincinnati

    Washington is 3 pt dog at Auburn

    Washington St favored by 3.5 at Laramie with, or without, electricity

    Oregon favored by 27.5 over Boring Green Straight University

    Utah State is 25.5 dog at Mich State

    This is meant in good fun, but I have to point out that you missed an obvious pun.  Ohio State Blackeyes.

      Domestic abuse is hilarious.

  • Utah

    Weber State is ranked #8, if I saw that correctly. 

    • PlainsUte
      3

      Yes, the FCS Coaches ranked them 8th in Div I FCS.  2017 Big Sky Champs, finished 5th in 2017 FCS poll.  No pushover.  Sagarin’s final predictor from 2017 does provide an estimate… Utah by 16, including 2.4 pt home advantage.

      Not sure you’ll find anyone to take that bet except some guy named Nephi behind the Maverick in Ogden.

        They may be our toughest OOC matchup this year.  I kind of like Weber to cover.

  • Thlete

    Give me:

    Beavers +38.5

    SDSU +15

    BYU +15.5

    Wash +3

    • PlainsUte

      Don’t think Cal can beat UNC by more than 5 at home?

      • Thlete

        I do, but I see the current line at 8.5 so I didn’t bother listing it. 

  • AlohaUte

    Against the spread I’ll take:

    * CSU
    * Oregon State
    * BYU
    * Arizona State
    * SDSU
    * Cal
    * USC
    * UCLA
    * Washington
    * Oregon

    Season Tickets Footbal Level 1 and 2 Crimson club

    Still missing your football season tickets   are you a level 1 or 2 Crimson club member. If yes there was a problem at the printer and they are being mailed out now.  Save yourself a phone call to find out this info.  U ticket office said it might take a week and a half from yesterday.  

    Providing less and less value as a crimson club minimum donor.

    A week and a half?! So basically we might get them before game day? What a joke. At least mine weren’t stolen…

  • BattleGroundUte

    They should have a digital option. 

    • Bryan

      Yes they can send them to you via flash

  • PlainsUte

  • Thlete

    I think I’m level 3 and my rep told me yesterday to expect my tickets on Wednesday. Such a cluster.

    • KiYi-Ute
      1

      Likewise. Level 3 here and I called yesterday because I have not received my tickets yet. She said that they were shipped late last week, but didn’t have a tracking number. Told me to call back on Thursday if I hadn’t received them and they would re-print and mail them again.

      Not too impressed with their customer service. I guess they know that it would take a lot for me to not renew my tickets so they can get away with it.

  • Business as usual at the ticket office.

    • Bryan

      I get mine via flash and have had them for a month or so.

    Rewatching games from last year

    First up: the bowl game.

    Utah played fairly well in this one. I remember how tense it was for so much of the game, but without the in the moment emotions, I realized how we controlled this game pretty much from kick to whistle.

    Some thoughts, Huntley played well, but not amazing. His decision making in the zone read in the red zone was really good, despite what some would say. TH needs fewer touches between the 20s. Wilson’s best asset was using the handoff to set up the keep. That said, dear sports writers, there was no TD by Huntley wherein he could have given it to Moss and walked in. Both would have had to shake a guy and the read was right since the DE crashed in you dolts.

    WTF was going on with that punt. Terrible blocking.

    Utah’s defense was lights out.

  • Utah
    2

    The punting problem was with the long snapper. I think Whitt has said that the best long snappers get the ball there at 0.6 secs. That 0.6-0.8 is the goal. And we were consistently around 1 sec last year. 

    We were terrible. That is why we brought in Maddie Golden. AAAAAaaaannnnndddd, I think there is more to the story when it comes to Gay’s sudden amazing kicking. Yes, Gay is amazing. Yes, he is the best kicker in the country. BUT, having a perfect snap makes everything so much easier. Sooooo much easier. 

    • ironman1315

      He was 2-2 from 60+ today.

    • FtheY

      Do you think any of Mitch wish’s punts were more than just long snapper issues throughout the season? Was he hurt last year? Maybe it was just me, but it felt like he was much less of a weapon last season. 

      • Tony

        I seem to recall thinking he had a bad wheel.

  • bopahull

    He seemed just fine until after the fake punt. From that point on he seemed to be struggling. I wonder if he was hurt on that run?
