    Because the Tuttle situation hasn’t been discussed enough..

    ..I’ll add some more thoughts.

    It is assumed that we did not recruit other QBs because we wanted to keep Tuttle happy. If you go to those lengths to land a kid, giving him mop-up duty seems less pandering in comparison (assuming playtime was the reason he transferred). Sure, this would set a wrong precedent, but you already kinda did that with the no-scholies-to-other-QBs promise. 

    Then we learn that Tuttle had not earned his playtime, and the coaches didn’t want to treat him differently (and rightly so). Also that Taylor has a good thing going with Daniels, and we’re going hard after him. 

    I’m not criticizing our coaches and don’t believe that they botched this, but the two narratives simply aren’t consistent. There has to be more to the story. I guess we’ll never know. I’m completely baffled. Just trying to seek more clarity.

    I don’t care who the player is, the program is always more important. This isn’t high school and we don’t care what the mom thinks. The end.

    People who remain confused seem unwilling to accept 1 possibility: Shelley is a better QB.

    If there’s mop up duty, wouldn’t you give it to Shelley since HE is the better QB and you don’t want to risk SHELLEY transferring?  Why would you even be thinking about the 3rd string kid?

    Also, it’s entirely normal to only take one QB in a class, because that guarantees the kid reps.  Schools fudge that promise by taking another QB as an athlete (how we landed Shelley while recruiting other QBs) or offering another QB a gray shirt opportunity like we did with the BYU kid.

  • I don’t think that what you call the two narratives are inconsistent. They didn’t go after Wilson in order to appease Tuttle. Then he arrives on campus and doesn’t impress. Plus, they can’t just not recruit future QB’s like Daniels. They can tell Tuttle that they won’t go after another QB the same year as him to get him to commit because they would have rather had Tuttle than Wilson. But they can’t tell him that he’s the annointed one and that he’ll be playing from day one and not go after another QB that could possibly take his spot.

    Maybe we should wait and see if the Wilson kid is even worth a crap before gnashing our collective teeth about not going after him.

    He had one good game against a horrid Hawaii defense, and suddenly he’s the “one that got away”? C’mon man.

    • Amen. Utah will crush him soon enough.

    Shah playing not to lose.

    I’ve seen that before.

  • So many times before!

  • 3 ASU turnovers only 20 points. Statistics say rely on your defense.

    Need 2 Tickets to USC Game

    I’ll pay premium for an aisle seat.  Please message me if you have some tickets. 

    Reminder that many were calling for Mike McCoy to be the new HC

    This game is brutal to watch

  • houhi43

    As a Cardinal fan I was initially happy to have him be the OC. But he has proven to be totally inept and unable to to do anything but suck.

    • UTE98

      On sports radio today they were talking about how this game was McCoy’s chance to prove the Broncos were wrong letting him go midseason last year, and if the Cardinals didn’t score much today chances were he’d be out midseason again this year. I know the Cardinals are in more of a rebuilding year, do you think McCoy is on his way out?

       

    • Utahute72

      A little tough to develop a game plan when you have no O-line.

      Plus Rosen may eventually be good, but he is totally blind when it comes to seeing the field.

  • Grimmetal

    Who were calling for it?

    Listen. I endured the last few years of my Charger fandom under Ball Coach McCoy… I’d quit Utah if that were to ever happen.

  • AZUTE

    McCoy is gonna take a bullet as the scapegoat for the disaster in Arizona. He has no Oline to work with. He was given a has been injury prone QB and a nowhere near ready rookie as his backup.

    Don’t feel to bad for him. He’s got plenty of money and lives in beautiful San Diego.

  • ProudUte

    Stanford’s offense is pathetic.

    They have run 18 plays and have lost yards on 9 of them.  If they don’t get this figured out soon, they are going to lose this game. 

  • Chidojuan

    What happened to that OL?  They were pretty good last year.

  • Their defense won’t be able to hold forever either.

    • ironman1315

      They’re breaking right now.

      • ironman1315

        I sit corrected. GG Furd D.

  • ironman1315

    That hit by the ASU WR was dirty. Should have been flagged.

    • Tony

      Yep.

    I’ve got the trees for numerous reasons.

    ASU has some talent on offense.

    Manny Wilkins is a spaz. For every good throw he makes, he tosses 3 horrible ones.

    • Tony

      He’s super emotional too. I think our defense will cause him much emotional distress.

    • Chase Hansen is going to get him a lot. 

  • SkinyUte

    Stanford’s doing their best to gack this game away. This ultra-conservative play calling is going to come back and bite them.

    • Tony

      Their offensive play calling makes ours look like WSU’s.

    Shelley’s tweet regarding Tuttle

    Has a tweet that implies people should stop tweeting Tuttle. Why cant adults behave like “adults”? Oh, that’s right, just look around the world and our political landscape, many men just can’t help themselves. Sad world.

    I would never communicate with a Teenager over the internet. Yes he is still a teenager to me.

      • But come to think about I don’t know the age of all the people on here. I guess I should say knowingly attack a teenager.

    Not that I care, but whoever gives this a “thumbs down” has a serious issue. How does behaving like a jackass make sense?

      I didn’t do it but probably the political nudge. It seriously triggers folks on Utehub even if you make jokes.

    Some of the Ute fans on Twitter are just awful.  I wish they’d just go away.  It’s embarrasing to rest of us.

      That’s the internet though. From the President of the United States down to the Russian troll bot most of it is bulls**t.

        Thumbs down on this?  Lol… they still can’t admit they were fools to vote for that joke of a human.

    I’m embarassing enough all by myself. I don’t need twits on twitter to make me look worse.

    How on Earth are the Utes going to win Saturday without Tuttle on the bench??

    I guess the coaches have a couple days to figure it out.

    Yes the loss of a 3rd team q.b who may not have ever played had he stayed (clearly that’s what he thought) will be a crushing loss.
