      If he, Kuithe and Rising (sorry EagleMtn) all 3 return, along with who else is returning and the new players we have coming in, Utes have to be the favorites again!
      3 Peat is coming!!

      That would be awesome!! Let’s do a 3peat of the Rose Bowl as well, but this time with the added delicious flavor of CFP!

      Selfishly, I’ve hoped they all came to the conclusion they need to immortalize 22 by getting into the CFP BEFORE it goes to 12 teams.

      They obviously don’t need to do more, but if they somehow decided that, which means Rising returns in my opinion, I wouldn’t complain. I bet that would also make it pretty hard for the AZ transfer WR to not come here, if winning is one of the things he cares about, that is.

        I can definitely see Vele come back. I think he needs to prove more. Kuithe and rising well see. Their draft projections could be higher.  With nil, they may decide to stay and raise their draft stock . They could go as well. Tough decisions for them. I am grateful for all 3 and will be rooting for the either way.

          NIL really changes the equation for college guys. For guys that are likely to go undrafted (or even late rounds), they may never make an NFL roster. If you can get some decent $ playing college ball, there is a big incentive to stick around and milk it. For many players, the NIL money may be their best and last opportunity to get paid to play a game.

          Before NIL, there was almost no upside to staying (no chance of getting paid, possibility of getting hurt). For better or worse, NIL has changed that.

      This would be intriguing for sure. JJ seems to have really settled into his role as a RB. The way he ran in the final three games was the best I have seen since Ty Jordan.
      Exciting things to come for sure.

        Agreed on JJ. Those last two games (Colorado and USC) showed some amazing improvement and promise for him. He has the natural speed, jukes, and size to do a lot of damage. With a full season of training in the RB room, he could be incredible.

        Given the last two seasons you could
        Probably just expect 9-3 again. Haha
