      I don’t know much about this guy other than he was kicked off the team at Oklahoma for participating in an armed robbery. We need help at the position and I trust our coaches.

        Thumbs-down, cancel culture trolls are still awake during the off-season.

          What? Cancel culture? I think there are just some people on here that like to downvote anything you post.

            Indeed, so you also believe it is a personal attack.

        Has anyone on this forum been robbed at gunpoint in SLC or the SLC suburb within which you live?

      If there is one thing Whit does well, it’s taking flawed players who have made mistakes, gives them a chance, and holds them accountable. The stability and discipline of the program is incredibly beneficial for such players.

          And Josh Gordon

          Utah could have used him in 2011.

          Well, it was great for TT for the first year. Really had things cleaned up and moving in the right direction. Sadly it’s hard to maintain change and mental health can do a number on you.

          No first P12 championship or first Rose Bowl without Tavion. Last year was clearly a disappointment, but Whit (apparently) got Tavion to put his life together for one year. I wouldn’t call it a failure.

            Success perhaps, or delaying failure.

              Delaying failure is, in itself, at least a bit of success.  Follow anyone long enough and they all eventually fail, one way or another.

              Delaying failure is pretty close to success, especially as the delay: (1) bought TT time to fix his life (even if he didn’t take advantage of it); and (2) kept people from getting hurt during that year.

              Also, that one year advanced the program. How much of current recruiting success is based on the first P12 championship and the first RB appearance?

              It isn’t the outcome I wanted, but the net benefit of TT is still higher than the net cost.

                If nothing else, he proved a concept while here that he can have success and how to do it.  That’ll leave an indellible impression that hopefully he can draw on later to change what he needs to change and get his ice back on track.

            Just because Thomas was the lead back late in the year does not guarantee that a combination of Bernard, Pledger and Curry would have produced a lesser result. You can’t assume an outcome for an event that didn’t happen based on another event with different variables that did.

              TT had the best vision of any RB we have had in at least the past 10 years, and he hit holes hard. Utah running game was night-and-day when TT first started coming on last year.

                How good was his vision? 20-10, 20-5, better?

                Bernard got hurt against WSU and then Thomas got to be the lead back against some truly bad run defenses in UCLA, Stanford and Arizona among others. Pretty easy to hit holes hard when you can drive a truck through them. Oregon in the P-12 champ game had a bad run defense, even Ohio State was below average.

                The kid had talent and was as big or bigger than most of the people trying to tackle him, but can we stop with the myth of no 2021 Rose Bowl or P-12 champ without him. It took a team to get those results, not one running back who may not crack the top-20 for all-time Utes at the position.

      Would Bridges be the highest-rated recruit that Utah ever had?

        not if you use his transfer rating. He’s not a recruit so his HS rating shouldn’t matter

          Here’s his rating when he first commited to Oklahoma, per 247:
          247 ranking
          That shows a composite ranking of 0.9687, which is high 4-star.

          Rivals had him as a 5-star:
