    Utah repeats, and the importance of returning seniors

    The Mercury News chimes in (link), reviewing the 2019 PAC12 divisional races, making Utah the “Easy pick” to repeat and face Oregon in championship.

    Tyler Huntley, Zack Moss and Britain Covey are back to lead an attack that should function smoothly under new-old play caller Andy Ludwig. Defensively, the Utes were hit hard by attrition at linebacker and safety but should be outstanding on the edge and up front. em>

    recruiting

    If you guys are stoked about Rising, just wait until you hear who is signing with the UTES on Feb. 6th. You will not need VIAGRA for a while.

    Gage Gubrud?

      I don’t know why we would need viagra?? It will give us ED?  Is this a marketing guy for the NIU game commercials or something??

    John you called your shot with Rising…I mean…if that’s what you’d call it.  Here’s your chance…enquiring minds want to know.  Who you got?

    • Utah5410

      ONlyu Random question. But who do you like at the other safety spot opposite Burgess ?

      • Onlyu
        11

        Afia is a 2 in my opinion…capable but not a game changer.  Hubert is an exciting young player but not sure he’s ready quite yet.  A good Spring and Summer could change that though…he is extremely athletic and there is a lot to like…bright future.  King, Nurse or even a Ty Smith could play a role if they put it together.  Blackmon is probably a ballhawk but not the physical presence we normally see back there but on today’s roster it’s probably him.  Key phrase being “today’s roster.”  Still recruits in play that can change that.  

  • EastCoastUte

    well @john777 already made a thread on the hint of QB Gage Gubrud signing with utah so if hes making another recruiting thread…i’m guessing its got to be someone else? throw me a bone here john.

    • ironman1315

      The temptations?

    • cjd1

      I give up.

        • UtahFanSir

          The song is My Girl. I got sunshine on a cloudy day is a lyric.

          • Yup hundreds of comments on the video that I didn’t make. 

      • ironman1315

        I figured it out. Zoe’s last name is Pollock. So we’re gettimg a Polish recruit.

        • FtheY
          1

          I’ll bite. 

          Song is by Zoe, who is British. So is bamidele Olaseni.

          Sunshine could also refer to the sunshine state, as in Florida. Breion Fuller is the highest rated and Utah offered FL recruit on 247. 

          Henry To’oto’o because his name rhymes with sunshine. 

          What else you got John777?

      Put up or shut up.

      Call your shot prove your greatness.

      Otherwise you’re just a loudmouth blowhard.

      What exactly did you predict?

      On February 6th Utah will sign somebody great?

      FYI everyone Utah signs is great.

  • leftyjace

    John, you might as well fess up.
    If nobody signs on Feb. 6th, you’re screwed.
    If someone signs on Feb. 6th, it’ll come across as you just throwing something general out there like a medium looking into her crystal ball, and then you try to take credit for it.
    The only way you get any respect is if you specify exactly who it is that will sign on Feb. 6th.
    The side benefit there is that if they sign on the 5th or the 7th or the 8th, you’ll still get partial credit for your prediction.
    So… put up.
    Or shut up.

    I’m saving my $1 bills, I hear BattleGround looks amazing in a G-string.

    • Tony

      Ya lost me on that one. 

  • BattleGroundUte

    Damn I enjoy the Jazz and the style they play.

    Good hell though the NBA is hard to watch. Blazers are stone cold frozen not hitting shots. Jazz are getting hacked and pushed around. You can’t even touch the Blazers. 

  • ironman1315

    Nah, NBA refs ain’t biased. /s

  • ironman1315

    Nurkic hip checks foul on O’Neal.

    • BattleGroundUte

      If you called all of the fouls on Nurkic he would be gone. 

    • BattleGroundUte

      Nurkic can do no wrong.

  • ironman1315

    Refs are testy with the Tsw

    • BattleGroundUte

      Call it both ways is all I ask. I mean after that Mitchell 3 Lillard immediately starts bitching. Just shut it down refs. They let them talk and talk until they say no you can’t anymore.

  • ironman1315

    Call half the actual fouls on nurkic and he fouled out 30 minutes ago.

    • BattleGroundUte

      Well you got two on him now. Holy hell he is like James Harden can’t get him in foul trouble. 

      • ironman1315
        1

        He gets all arm and nothing. Shoves. Nothing. Do the same to him and it’s a foul every time.

        • BattleGroundUte

          Nurkic gets the five steps like Harden to. 

        • BattleGroundUte

          Well game over. Portland starting to shoot well. Way too many turnovers from the Jazz. Be nice when Mitchell gets the foul calls. 

        • BattleGroundUte

          Nice move by Lillard unless you give him a pivot foot. Seemed like it was his right then left then right underneath Oneale. 

  • ironman1315

    Sure would be great if we didn’t turn it over all the damn time.

    • BattleGroundUte

      Mitchell finally heating back up. Seems too little too late though. Nurkic gets to 5 fouls finally. I am shocked 😮 

  • ironman1315
    1

    Donovan is so dang good.

  • BattleGroundUte

    Ingles and Korver. Liability defensively and can’t make s**t tonight. That’s the trade off during this run one has been on at least to cover for their terrible d. Not tonight. 

    • ironman1315

      And INgles D is usually pretty strong, not this year though.

      • BattleGroundUte

        No I don’t know if the All star break will help him or not. He seems to be on a rapid decline. Korver was so bad on both ends tonight. That run by Nurkic when he should have been in foul trouble really hurt the Jazz. 

        Mitchell not getting two dumb fouls he probably drags the Jazz to a win. Drops like 40 or so probably a win. That is mostly his fault on those two fouls I can remember.

    BOOM! ONE MORE FOR THE UTES

    EWU star QB Gage Gubrud will finish his college career at Utah. in 2 1/2 seasons as a starter, he passed for 9,980 yards and 87 TD. he also rushed for 1,042 yards and 13 TD on the ground.

  • dystopiamembrane

    This is a great pickup!

    • dystopiamembrane

      I’m excited to see how he works in Utah’s camp. Players from the lower echelons of college football simply love the game.

        EWU looked strong in the three games I watched this season.

  • MineralUte

    Hmmm. He has to get his medical redshirt, but that should happen. Seems like a strange transfer for him to come when he’ll only have one year of eligibility. I doubt he’ll unseat Huntley, but I’m guessing the staff is bringing him in as an insurance policy.

    He could also be a safety…

    • Utah

      I think the coaching staff knows Shelley left a lot of points on the field and wants to have someone to push Shelley.

    Is there something official?  I’ve only seen updates that he’s narrowed it down to WSU and Utah….and from a football only standpoint, I can’t see how he’d pick Utah since he’ll be a RS Senior next year (assuming he gets a medical redshirt).

  • TSKCoug

    A bit premature as last I heard Gubrud has narrowed it down to Utah and WSU. Just my gut tells me it is likely he will opt for Utah as the Cougars are pretty well set at Quarterback. But if Gage is up to a challenge he could try to beat them all out and do his best Gardner Minshew impression and go 11-2 or better in 2019. Could transfer lightning strike twice for WSU? In either event, if he is any good at FBS level I am happy he will not be playing for one of the big money programs.

     

    Go Cougs!

    • Puget Ute

      It would be interesting to see what he can do under Mike Leach, especially after the way he tore you up in 2016 (before you had a Defense with a pulse).  Mike Leach is the definitive Quarterback Whisperer.
