    Vickers

    Apparently he was granted an additional year?  I didn’t hear anything about this, but I’m glad he’ll have his chance to shine.

    Glad to hear Vickers made a the comback from head trama.

    He is practicing with the team this spring but I don’t think any is official yet. Still waiting on the ncaa to make a decision

    • TheJuggernaut

      They must be pretty confident, he’s listed on the Spring 2 deep at WR behind Simpkins.

    Interwebs saying Armand Shyne is transferring.

    Did not attend practice today.

  • Chidojuan

    DHC seems like he’s improved a lot based on the practice reports.  With him, Wilmore, Brumfield and Green, and Moss as the Cherry on top, I can see why he made that decision.

    Shyne was great at times but reminded me of Joe Williams at times. Heart not in it. 

    • Shyne never had the talent and speed of Joe or the strength/ drive of Moss.  What Joe did against UCLA still inspires me.  Regardless, I wish him well.

      • I wrote that in a hurry. What I meant is a Shyne can run as one of best at times. But at other times he reminded me of an uninspired Joe Williams. When Joe retired it was for good measure he just wasn’t right. I agree though the UCLA game is one of the best performances by a running back ever collegiately I have seen.

    Not surprised and not disappointed. Wish him well. He was a crucial part of our successful season last year.

    Bummer. While not our best RB, he’s clearly in the Top-3, so that counts as a hit to our depth.

    Oh well. Good luck to him.

    Surprised it took this long. Figured he’d transfer after Moss decided to return.

  • RiseasUtes

    I like him, but he was never the same after his injury.  He was always looking down and missing the holes.  I wish the guy luck, but with DHC, Green, and Wilmore behind Moss he likely wasn’t going to see the ball much.

    • Utesbyfive

      Yep. Every time I saw him run, it was tentative. He didn’t run with the “violence” coach likes. And yes, he missed the holes continually. Every time, I thought “Moss would have hit that hole correctly.”

        He was a monster in the fourth quarter during the comeback against the Cougars.  Sorry to see him leave but wish him well.

          No question, if there’s one memory I’ll have of Shyne it will be that go ahead TD run against BYU.

          • UteThunder

            True that.

             

            • utefansince79
              5

              Earlier that game, Utah had a 4th and 1 at midfield.  Shyne was met at the line and kept churning his legs single handedly push back the defenders to get that vital first down.

               

              Shine on Shyne!

              Still hilarious how it only took a quarter to beat them again. Fah they suck. 

    • BattleGroundUte

      Utah has a too much talent at RB problem. Only so many touches. Let’s just hope Moss puts the game to bed early. 

  • Change in the transfer trends or case of rich getting richer?

    Miami transfer Martell IMMEDIATELY eligible

    Haven’t heard anything about Rising and his request. In fact I will go Google it. 

    Nothing I can see.

    Utah as #3 on not going to win the division list

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/friday-five-reigning-college-football-division-champions-least-likely-to-repeat-in-2019-season/

    Utah could win the division again in 2019. In fact, if it does, I wouldn’t consider it a surprise. But that doesn’t change the fact the Utes still have to play both USC and Washington on the road next season, and I don’t think it’s crazy to expect two losses there. 

    really went out on a limb with that statement.  I am dumber for having read that.

    “Journalist” definition should just be changed to: lazy f**ks who want to rile people up. 

    • astUTE

      Well if that is the definition of journalist, then I’m going to have to apologize to Monson and PK – who knew, they really were journalists all along?!?

  • Chidojuan

    Fornelli usually is pretty good, I’m surprised by how half-assed that was.

  • Anyone surprised by NIT not picking up Utah?

    With the long run they made last year just figured they would make it. 

    Just another knot in Larry’s noose it feels like.

    We weren’t ranked anywhere close to the best 32 teams not in the big dance (and about 10 or so spots were automatically given to regular season conference champs who lost in their tournies).

     

    • Not just lost in their tournaments, but also weren’t chosen as at-large births in the NCAA Tournament (like Washington, Belmont, Nevada, etc.).

  • ironman1315

    No. I’m not surprised. Disappointed but not surprised.

    • BattleGroundUte

      Yeah talking heads on 1280 the zoob said we should all be surprised. Then they kept trying to sell the surprise. Disappointed is what I would say is the most accurate description. Getting a first round bye in the P12 tourney just was a big nothing of an accomplishment this season.

  • I will… And you could too if you had Sportz TV!

     

    • rbmw263

      oh its like sports but with a z

  • PlainsUte
  • I know the Utes are completely out of the NCAA/NIT, but anyone doing a bracket?

    Is Nate Atloff running his or a UteHub bracket on ESPN or CBS sites?  Lemme know, I am always good for a WAG bracket or two.    Go Marquette Warriors, er uh, Golden Eagles!!, Boomer Sooner!!, Go Boilers!!

    I’ve been wanting to program a bracketology thing for the site here for the last couple of years, and have it ready for March madness.  Maybe next year.

    PAC12 gets 3 in Tourney. USU to play Washington.

    Lol, 3 teams? Really? The pac12 was crap this year

    • Charlie

      Down but not crap. I think the three will not go away as fast as you expect. We need the tournament wins to begin to turn around our perception.

    Colorado was only remaining PAC 12 team to make NIT.

    • It’s because of their net ranking and their making of the conference semifinals

  • SEC is feasting on the remains of the PAC12.

    PAC12 was a 5 to 4 bid league, some years 6. SEC was 3 to 4, with a single high seed in Ashley Judd Univ. Seeing the SEC get 7 compared to the PAC12 three it’s easy to see where they gained and we lost.

    The turn happened right around our crap media deal. Scott has to go. In this day in age perception is reality, and for a dual commissioner and Media guy he is falling big time.

  • loyter

    Or, you could say that the decline happened right after they added Colorado and Utah.
