      Have we heard from @onlyU since Guy Holliday was dismissed? Could there be a correlation?

      I remember him posting a few times in the days immediately following his dismissal, but can’t recall anything else since. Seriously doubt there is a correlation, other than possibly Whit has clamped down on any possible leaks or insider information making it out of the program since Holladay was let go.

      I looked at this awhile back, and he posted shortly after it all happened….but I don’t think he had since that time.  His last post was about Holliday, so it seemed like there wasn’t a correlation at the time, but it’s obviously very suspicious now.

          I’m aware that he hangs around some folks close to the program and picks things up here and there, but there are people here who think he is actually on the staff or in practices, etc. and it bothers me a little that he does nothing to dissuade that impression. In fact, he kind of plays it up.

            He’s mentioned many things before they hit the news. He knows things before the rest of us. Whatever he is, his information has proven legit many times over. So your opinion, or knowledge is really irrelevant.

            He has said before that he is not on staff, just knows people in the program and has access. I have not been given the impression that he is trying to play anything up. I think he is great, has good insight, and has been very fair.

      I specifically remember a post a year or so ago where he explicitly stated that he was neither on staff nor at practices. Rather, he said he was just a guy who happens to know some people and picks stuff up here and there. At the time, I got the impression based on responses to his post that no one on here believed him.

        Yes, no one believed him because he carefully crafts his posts to imply that he is involved, going beyond the typical use of “we” that the common fan uses when discussing “their” team.  But I’m done on this topic. I’m sure he will continue to share here what he picks up from others, and it will be appropriately valued.

        Wow…a thread dedicated to whether or not I’m on staff. Ridiculous. I’ve said it multiple times but I’ll say it again. I am not a coach at the U. That said, I have been to practices when no one, including media is allowed, I have been on the sidelines for multiple games, I do have personal relationships with coaches and players and I love Utah football.

        I would say over the course of 4-5 years I’ve been wrong maybe a couple of times…maybe. I will always put the program first and if there is info that could be considered detrimental I won’t share it. I am on 247 (since before the last BYU game) but don’t share a ton there. Rather I pass info along to the mods to do with what they choose. I love the program…I attend in person between 8-10 games a year typically.

        I came on to post the other day but was kind of bummed with some of the reaction to Brewer. People bitching about Bentley and the expectations that came with him as if it were the same situation. He didn’t have a Spring with the guys and barely had a Summer. He lost the job to Rising in camp by the way and wasn’t supposed to be the starter. It was clear that Rising was the guy.

        Brewer threw for like 10,000 yards in the big 12, started like 40 games in a P5 conference and was right next to Tyler with his team in the top 10 the final week or two that season but some act like he is a retread. QB play is key but so are the surrounding pieces…It’s clear he is the guy today and it will be a battle if Rising is fully healthy in the Fall. By far the best QB room we’ve ever had when camp opens in the Fall…by far.

        Vele…yeah you’ve heard it before, has the best ball skills on the team IMO and will be a guy provided he’s healthy. We’ll bring in a few guys (one has already been locked up for the most part that you’ll be happy with but not here about for a while). You know about Covey and Enis and the tight ends. I’m very bullish on the O-line. Another source of angst on the board. We have 3 guys (min) that will play on Sunday’s on this roster up front. I won’t be wrong on that one either. The RB room is in great shape and Ricky makes that even better. DL looks great, DB’s look great and the backers are deep and talented to compliment the Beast in Lloyd.

        We will be in the mix the next 4-5 years…have some chances to be special if things go our way and we stay healthy.

        Other than that call your Crimson Club rep (assuming you put your money where your mouths are) and buy some hoops tickets. Let’s get those guys back to where we’re used to them being.

Bentley obviously didn’t live up to expectations, but he was also thrust into a tough situation. I feel bad for the kid, and I hope he does great next year. I don’t think he has the talent for the next level, but from everything I’ve read, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him excel on the coaching end of things….</span>

            Agreed 
            I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again.  Bentley for sure missed some but he also won us games with other stuff he brought to the table.  (His escability and ability to keep a play alive was key to some victories last year).  (I know he got yanked in the last game so don’t bring that up.  Don’t change nothin)

             

            also, let’s not p**s of onlyu.  He’s the wisest among us.  I insinuated he was guy Holliday once, but only to coax him out for some football updates since it’d been awhile since we’d heard from him(which worked I might add).  He’s been wrong only once that I can remember but then ended up being right on the issue like three days later…(latu)

             

            Last thought.  There are so many factors that go into success on a football field or are at play for whatever is going on.  It’s a complicated game.  I’ve noticed that most complainers on here or Twitter or wherever GROSSLY oversimplify when they complain amd it makes them look like dudes dripping nacho cheese on themselves in an 80s arm chair watching the game.  Don’t be that guy.

      I literally said that same thing, people comparing Bentley to Brewer don’t understand football. We all assumed Bentley. But writhing COVID we know the story. I was amazed we got Brewer. Brewer is a beast. I expect him to beat Rising and win the job.

        I’m glad OnlyU has the relationships he does with the Utes. We all have our fun buckets to fill and that’s a great one. The one thing about OnlyU I’m certain of is his age. He’s close to my age (50) because he hangs with some coaches and like me he still places two spaces after each period. Thanks OnlyU for all your reads.

              It’s a relic of learning to type on an actual typewriter. I still remember my type class. For whatever reason I had a very hard time with it, but am damn glad I took it. Touch typing is invaluable.
