Individual Tickets??

When do they go on sale? I know you can get some resell tickets from 3rd parties right now, but those prices are jacked up. I’m talking individual game tickets from the University.

  • UtMtBiker

    If there is agame you’re looking for, post here. We typically sale for face value if we can’t make a game. I know a number of others that do the same. Ute fans only off course.

  • Which game are you wanting? I’ve got two extra tickets to each game and four extra to the Colorado game.

    New Recruit

    Picked up a mid tier 3* safety today, Kamo’i Latu. Graded as an .8499 on 247. 

    Looks like he had some G5 offers, along with Nebraska, Colorado, Virginia and Oregon State. 

    This is the first I’ve heard of him. Anyone have any additional information?

    They have been talking about him on 24/7 sports for some time. Definitely worth the subscription if you like following Utah football recruiting.

    Utah vs BYU football.

    Over the past 40 meetings:

    BYU 20 wins  (.500 winning %)

    Utah 20 wins (.500 winning %)

     

    Over the past 30 meetings:

    BYU 11 wins  (.367 winning %)

    Utah 19 wins (.633 winning %)

     

    Over the past 20 meetings:

    BYU 6 wins (.300 winning %)

    Utah 14 wins (.700 winning %)

     

    Over the past 10 meetings:

    BYU 1 win (.100 winning %)

    Utah 9 wins (.900 winning %)

     

    Many BYU fans making the argument that the programs are on par are delusional. You have to go back 40 years for an even record.  

    Utah will eventually lose to Provo again, but the trend is clear for the foreseeable future.

    Going back 40 sucks in the 20 years stretch in 100 where BYU won more. The recent record is the historical mean, and BYU simply reverted. 

    • TheJuggernaut

      This is correct, I like to think the rivalry can be viewed in four stages:
      1 Pre Lavell (1896-1971), Utah won 81% of the time (Utah record 41-8-4 for a win pct of .811)
      2 LaVell Pre McBride (1972-1989), BYU won 89% of the time (2-16, .111)
      3 Mac Pre Urban (1990-2002), Utah pulled even with BYU and won 6 out of 13 (6-7, .460)
      4 Urban to present (2003-present), Utah passed BYU and returned to winning 80% of the time (12-3, .800)

      In the foreseeable future I would expect Utah to continue to win about 80% of the time, if not more.

        I like to break it down in 2 categories. The who gives a s**t category…and the post Burton block category, which means everything.

    Can you redo the analysis to show moral victories by BYU and the moral victory reasons by year?

    • BJA 13

      Sure: BYU undefeated (Refs, Classless fans, Better team didn’t win, you know the drill)

    Another P12 analysis. This time from SBNation.

  • PlainsUte

    USA Today’s Schroeder was on local (outside Utah) radio this morning.  Commenting on the Pac-12 he said that he is concerned that Pac-12 may go a year or more without a strong playoff contender because he expects the top teams to get 2-3 losses.  Basically said it was a 3-way race in the North and he’s got Utah in the south.  Says no one talking about Utah because they are out in Utah, of course.

    • Utesbyfive

      Who’s he got the third in the north? Stanford or Wazzu?

      • UtemanUtefan
        3

        Drink bet:  Oregon gets 3rd in the north behind both Washington schools. YHIHF

      • PlainsUte

        ‘furd.

        He expects Herbert to have an impact at Oregon, but said its a wait-n-see if the team can get on-track.  He doesn’t think Washington will drop off much, and thinks Stanford will also be in the mix if I recall correctly.  Not much said about them, but obviously Costello returning at QB will be good for them.

  • Rice-Eccles Stadium Expansion – Slight Redesign

    Design change to RES Expansion Plans

    The change makes the SEZ look way better and utilizes space better. I’m not sure if this will change the expected capacity as the article states the same expected capacity as before the change.

  • The extra DnF pr0n was cool but I think just having seats is the way to go.

  • Utesbyfive

    I like that. It’s cleaner, and doesn’t look like that ugly ass UTEP statidum where they play the Sun Bowl. I thought the strange flat spots for the DnF were not utilitarian, and somebody agreed with me.

  • Bill Riley is not just drinking the Kool aid…

    He is chugging it beer bong style. He is stopping short of a CFP. He says Utah is most likely a two TD win over zoobies. Ignoring all the weird things and jinxes I guess. He believes Utah punches it’s ticket to Rose Bowl minimum. 

    I kind of feel the same way but I don’t know who will be the north champ. If it is Wazzu I am concerned to be honest. Leach just has our number. 

  • whitlessham

    if its the same ol offense – then no.  Utah will not win the PAC12 championship game. 

    History is not our friend…

     

  • Utesbyfive

    And UW doesn’t?

    • That whole LOSING 15 starters is a compelling argument for me. That is a lot of talent to replace. Yes Utah lost to them twice the past season. In fact I am the first to say Peterson pretty much owns Whitt. That loss in the p12 still can’t wrap my head around it….flukey ass play. I can’t even see that being replicated again. 

       

      • Chidojuan

        The loss of Gaskin hurts them the most I think.  Ahmed will be good, but Gaskin carried that offense on his shoulders most of the season, and I can’t see Ahmed doing that, at least not this year.  He’s sort of like Shyne, but exchange the strength for speed.  Just doesn’t quite hit the holes or let lanes develop as well as Gaskin.  Honestly, this is the best year to have them on the schedule.

        • TheJuggernaut

          They also lost 10 defensive starters. They’ll take a step back this Fall, I wish we got them earlier than November 2.

  • Duhwayne

    A lot seem to think Oregon will be the N champ

    • UtemanUtefan
      4

      This is the opinion I can’t wrap my head around. Why is Oregon projected so well?

      They had Herbert and the same coach last year and didn’t do very well at all.

      • Utesbyfive

        Projected #1 draft pick QB.

      • KiYi-Ute

        Oregon with a top 10 OLine is a big factor. Plus Herbert, plus the fact that they will always have a track-star RB and above-average WRs.

        Their defense is also going to be quite good this year, I think. Their line will be above average and Troy Dye is likely an All-American LB.

        Oregon vs. Utah Pac12 Championship Game.

    • Utesbyfive
      3

      I think Herbert is going to get hurt, and Oregon is going 7-5.

  • He was asking without turnovers, how does BYU win? If both teams play a clean game, how can BYU win that game. I have to agree with him, there is no way. Both teams come in healthy, no pac 12 championship game the next week. Utah will be focused squarely on BYU. Even a few years ago with 7 turn overs, Utah still won.

      I’m starting to get in the vanilla playbook mentality with this game.  Run, run, run, play action, run, run, run, play action.  Let’s see how long their depth can last.

      • BattleGroundUte
        6

        I wouldn’t mind that all. Play action burner to Dixon done and done.

        • UtMtBiker

          He’ll need to catch them this season. Wash. State and ASU are different games if he does last year. Had other big drops too.

    There are two football power houses in the Tulsa area, Tulsa Union and Jenks.  Both have produced a myriad of college players and also NFL players.  Union last won the State Championship in 2016; they were the runner-up in 2017.

  • Probably aren't many tennis fans here, but if you've battled joint problems…

    Andy Murray, 32, who had in 2016 risen to the top of the tennis world, announced his probable retirement in January at the Australian Open due to severe hip pain.  At the end of January he had hip resurfacing surgery (like hip replacement except  they put a metal cap on the femoral head rather than driving a metal stem into the femur).  Just short of 5 months post-op he entered his first professional tournament in the doubles competition at the Queen’s Club Tournament in London, pairing with Spainard Feliciano Lopez.  He and Lopez began by knocking off the top seeded team and then proceeded to win the tornament this afternoon (US time).

    Murray wins his first tournament back from surgery
