    This feels cryptic 🙂  I’m excited now!

      Wouldn’t that be a reason for a thumbs down? “No context, no contributon to a discussion, no links or sources.”

      • UteBacker

        BIG DIFFERENCE.  Onlyu has proven time and time again that whatever he says is real.  So when he posts something like this the whole board knows news is about to follow and it’s simply a short moment before we know.  It’s the closest damned thing to Christmas as you can get.  Onlyu has earned every benefit of the doubt.

        Cesar made it sound like we signed that kid.  If you can’t see that, Dysto, I don’t know what to tell you.

          The multiple thumbs down were given because you don’t trust Cesar? It felt very combative, as if the entire active board was ganging up on the kid because he didn’t phrase something in a way that made it easily digestible. 

          • UteBacker

            These chat boards are combative in nature.  You should take all criticisms with a grain of salt, which most of us do.  I, along with everyone else on the board but you, read Cesar’s post as us landing that kid.  It was a dick move to get us all excited for nothing.  That’s the end of it.  No big deal.

              Also, I linked you to a series of articles on Larry Scott & the Pac 12 in one of the chains below.  Check it out.

              Edit: here it is to save you time searching.

    ONLYU. any chance on a receiver ?

    • Onlyu
      14

      Yes…still hunting WR’s. Believe we may have 1 initial left…maybe but not entirely sure. Also believe we’ll have a push forward join by the end of next week but that’s not at WR.

        Is Ty Jones coming home to Utah? Or are we going after a better option, I know he’s been hampered with injuries…

      Back in the day after imbiding on certain flammable organic matter washed down with a few doses of Miller, my friends and I would debate which album was the greatest of all time. It broke down to 3, Led Zepplin 4, Dark Side of the Moon and Who’s Next. I was solidly on the Who’s Next band wagon. 

      Oh I miss those days at Utah, sometime in the 19……..

      • Tony

        Very good. I would have to say Dark Side is the greatest record of all time.

    So who do we have in the RB room now? Bernard, curry, pledger, the incoming freshman kid… am I missing anyone? Sheesh

    wow gonna be some battles in the offseason for QB/RB! 

    • Mule

      ONLYU, do you happen to know if there are any offensive linemen in the portal? Maybe not, since it seems like the portal is more about skills players(?), but now that we’ve reloaded at RB (RIP #22), QB and hopefully soon WR, it seems to me that O-line may be the position group most in need of some depth/talent upgrade.

      • Onlyu
        13

        I believe they’re looking at another interior guy (JC/not portal) but they feel very good about the depth/talent on the o-line. Anything out of the portal will be a PWO at that position. A lot of young guys to work through and we saw some of that this year…Saw a lot of mistakes early and then some pretty significant improvement IMO.

    Wow.
    Where are we weak? Where? Wide Receiver? Possibly. Where else?
    This is unreal, seeing all of this happen.
    We can’t have Ty back. Which is… unbelievable.
    But with what’s left…
    I’ll take Curry and Pledger over Wilmore and Brumfield in that room any day.
    Cuz that’s exactly what’s happened.
    With the amazing things happening in the QB room, with our consistently solid line play (mostly, I’m looking at you O-Line), with a fully stacked and consistently reloading defensive backfield and linebacker corp…
    How can you NOT be incredibly, incredibly excited about the next 4-5 years for this program?

    • I have an internal battle of getting incredibly excited and trying to fight down my expectations to keep them somewhat realistic but man…the transfer portal has freaking BLESSED us this round with more to come.

      My pessimistic side of my brain can take a freaking seat.

      This has me PUMPED for the future!!

        TY Jones from Washington?

      • UteBacker

        ^^^ nailed it!

    Wan’dale Robinson- Britton Covey type
    Samori Toure- under radar reciever who worked his way to being the best reciever in his conference.

    • Zigziggler

      My bad You’re committed to Nebraska.  Rashawn Williams from Indiana looks to be in the mold of Utah recievers.

      • PhiladelphiaUte

        How is he “in the mold of Utah receivers“?  Is it because he drops a lot of catchable balls, and forces his team into a 4th-down situation?

        • Zigziggler

          What Utah would like their recievers to be. Tough physical, sure handed, willing blocker.
