    I know some of you think that the 60 in 60 deal on 1280 is a joke.  However, I think the players like the recognition.  In the end,it is meaningless.  However, it can be fun to speculate and disagree with the local media.

    My prediction for the top ten in no particular order:

    Moss

    Huntley

    Covey

    Anae

    Fotu

    Penisini

    Johnson

    Guidry

    Love

    Wilson

    BYU Player (not sure who)

    Other possibilities from Utah include:

    Blackham

    Bernard

    Bowen

    I don’t understand why people get upset about it. Whether you agree/disagree with the list or think there is bias, who cares? If nothing else, it provides some fun football talk during the long buildup to the start of the season. 

    As things stand now, I think the Utes are pretty well represented, meaning we only have 5 players listed so far and they have revealed numbers 60-39. We are likely going to have another 20-25 players on the list in the top 38. The top 10 will likely have 7 or 8 Utes but I don’t think it will be a clean sweep.

      Everytime I take a minute to tune in they are talking about Wilson.  So it is confirmation bias whatever you want to call it. I don’t care I stopped listening.

    First- who’s Blackham?

    Second- two of the three top TE’s in the Pac12 were ranked In the 40’s and 50’s.

    #60in60 is a joke trying to rank players based on last year’s performances vs completely different opponents. Would Wilson, Love, or Bushman have the same stats playing a P5 schedule? No. They should just do a top 10 player ranking for each school and quit trying to keep Brigham on par with Utah.

      Sorry, I am just an old guy who screws up from time to time.  I think you know I meant Blackmon.  My bad.

      I admit I was surprised that our TEs were ranked that low.  That is one of the fun things about 60 in 60, disagreeing with them.

      I think that they were fair last year and I suspect that Utah will have 7 of the top 10 players this year and I think that is fair.  Of course USU does not play the same schedule as we do and BYU only plays half the schedule we do.  But, we had great players in 2004 and 2008 when we played a much lesser schedule.  Did Alex Smith not deserve national attention because he didn’t play in a power conference? 

      Do BYU and USU have some very good players?  I say they do.  Look at what USU has put in the NFL the last decade.  They have had some studs.  Is Zach Wilson a good QB?  I think he is.  What would he do against top opponents?  We will see in September.  Unfortunately, we will not get to see Love play against top opponents.  But, he has received a lot of very positive national attention by those in the know.  The Love for Love is not just a local thing.

      Bytheway, you do not have to listen to 1280 to see the 60 in 60 results.  I rarely listen to the station.  I just go online to 1280 the zone once a week or so and view the results.

        USU plays Wakeforest and LSU this year, so we actually will get to see Love play against some top flight competition. We won’t get to see how he might play with P5 talent surrounding him, but that won’t necessarily stop him from showing just how good he really can be.

          oh yeah… Wake Forrest is a true powerhouse.

            ACC team that has won 7, 8, & 7 games the last 3 years including 3 bowl wins. They are a quality opponent for the Aggies.

              he referred to them as top flight. That is far from the truth. They are decent, we were pretty much always better than them as a MWC team.

                I think WF is better than TDS, SUU and NIU if we are comparing non conf.

                I really was mostly referring to LSU, and included Wake Forest just as another P5 that I felt is comparable to teams Utah and BYU will play this year. If we’re getting nitpicky though, Wake Forest tends to be known for fielding a formidable defense. Considering the premise of the whole comment was being able to accurately measure how good Love is, their “top flight” defense is all that really matters in the scenario.
