        What changes will we see going into Washington st.  Will Bam and Ford be replaced on the o line?  Obviously Rising will get the nod at QB but what else will change?  Curious what the board thinks.

        I’m not so convinced Rising is the defacto starter. Whit has a tendency to stick with the guy he’s picked until it’s painful. Think about how it took Jordan Wynn literally retiring from football for Travis to take over.

        At the end of the day, the coaches see this team everyday and they wouldn’t be playing guys if they didn’t think it was the best decision for the team. They get paid to field the best team possible. So in my opinion, the starters yesterday are probably going to be the starters for the rest of the year, barring injuries.

        We’re in for a rough few years, unless the coaching makes massive strides with the talent we have on hand.

          A little Whitt-speak for ya, from Story about Jordan Wynn’s retirement.

          “In practice the gap [between Hays and Wilson] is very small. In scrimmages, the gap is very small. But guys react differently when they’re ‘the guy.’ So far, Travis hasn’t been ‘the guy,'” said head coach Kyle Whittingham. “It’s either Jon’s the guy with Travis supplementing what we do or it’s Travis is the guy.”

          It absolutely needs to be Rising the rest of the way. We’ve got a good idea of what Brewer is, and it’s not a guy that’s gonna get us very far.

            Lol .. to me , it doesn’t make a difference with our O-Line .. neither one won’t make it through the season .. we’ll be down to Costelli by USC

          jordan wynn was special until his shoulder gave out. ill die on that hill. cant blame the coach for hanging on to the promise and potential as if it could come back (it could have, and has, in other similar situations, just never did)

            ill go further and say we beat UW in our first p12 game if jordan is healthy and maybe take that to a p12cg.

            Peterson kept Utah out that year. Kicker btw which if only Utah had one last Saturday. Maybe Araiza misses still and no two point overtimes.
            Comes down to coaching and Utah is missing something at key positions.
