    Third Time Is A Charm

    Anyone else expecting a breakout game tomorrow for the Utes against SJSU? I am. I think the guys clean up the penalties, like cut them in half.

    The offensive line was solid last week, and this week, they begin to open some massive holes for Zach Moss. If Zach will work on his timing, he will scamper for big gains. The running game has to develop with less reliance on Tyler Huntley. I don’t want to over use TH in the same way we have Utah running backs in the last few seasons.

    TH will continue to find open receivers and other guys beside DCII and these guys will find ways to create options for this young QB.

    The D will get better stops, to avoid those huge plays that keep drives alive. But more than anything, Sack Lake City returns this weekend.

    Time for the Utes to have a statement win, turn the AP’s head, and fill in some ESPN highlight reel time.

    I’ll be happy if we get to the point where we are putting Troy Williams in the game.

    I’ll be content if we clean up penalties and win by a decent margin.

    I’ll be upset if we have another 100+ yards of penalties.

    I’ll be buying my first alcoholic beverage if we lose.

      I want TH to do so well, he sits for the 2H and TW plays all but the last series. CB plays the last series.

      And all snaps are target spot on.

    Yes, I think we’ll see a breakout game, but in the same sense that BYU-P will have a “breakout game” when they play Southwest Massachusetts or whoever the hell they’ve got on the back half of their schedule.

    It’s easy for receivers to not hold when the guys they’re blocking aren’t athletic.
    It’s easy to establish a strong running game when your o-line is able to open holes so big you could drive a boat show through them.
    It’s easy to get 15 sacks when you can manhandle your opponent’s o-line.

    So yes, probably a great game from Utah this week…but it won’t teach us anything about whether we’ve truly progressed.

    Moss is pretty patient already they need a violent running back to hit the holes hard. Huntley is running how we need the RBs to run. Playing with the end zone in his mind.

    I think Utah will play its best game so far (statistically). I don’t think we’ll open up the playbook any more than we already have though, but I don’t think we’ll need to to take care of SJSU.

    I’d like to see Moss with over 100 yards by halftime. I also want T Williams and DHC to come in after the first drive of the 3rd quarter, just because the game is already over by then. Rest the starters for most of the 2nd half, give our 2’s and 3’s time on the field. Fans enjoy an easy win.

    I also want to see my new avatar…so I’m replying partially for that too. 😀

    With our program, I expect nothing. Just show me the on-field performance and results.

    I’m expecting a LOT of points. We need the confidence. We need redzone practice.

    I am expecting another stellar performance from Huntley. Although, I’m hoping he doesn’t run that much. Also, more 3rd down conversions and improved redzone O.
