    Definite cheap shot. I think it was in the second quarter. Right after the kickoff one of the up men popped Enis pretty good instead of retreating and setting up for a return. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that on a kickoff before.

  • eyesonU replied to the topic We've got some pansy fans in the forum Football 4 weeks ago

    I don’t think there’s a lot of fanbases in the country that would sit through a cold, rainy night for almost four hours. A lot of people look at it as entertainment and aren’t as passionate about it as most of us on this board. Their comfort is more important to them at times.

    They are basically glorified garbage bags. I feel your pain. My buddy was lucky enough to score one of the fleece lined ones from Costco a while back. I was super jealous tonight. He only breaks it out once a year maybe but damn if it doesn’t make days like today much more tolerable. I wish they’d bring them back, I’d buy one in a heartbeat.

    I actually think their schedule lines up nicely. They miss Washington and Stanford and get Wazzu, USC, Oregon, and Arizona all at home. Their toughest conference road game is here in SLC.

    Freshman QB not withstanding, they always seem to have good skill position guys. Benjamin will have to carry the load no doubt, but it would not surprise me if…[Read more]

    I am officially jealous. I’ve been looking at them for a while now. A couple of friends have them and everything they do has been really good. 
    I don’t have any advice to offer other than just remember low and slow and I think you’ll be fine. 

  • Mid City in Midvale is awesome. Stadium seating setup if you get there early enough, with enough screens to make you dizzy. 
    Trolley Wing Co. is good too. Also in Midvale just across the way from Mid City.  Great wings.
    Lumpy’s on highland is a good spot if you don’t care too much about food. Friendly long time Ute bar. Not the best TV setup…[Read more]

  • Glad we’re on the same page

  • Ha! TDS tickets aside, that’s an interesting point. I heard Harlan on with Reilly earlier today talking about competition for the TV viewer and getting them off their couches and into the stadiums. They were talking about needing to offer an experience, hence all the luxury suites you see everywhere,  to get people to come out to the games. 
    My…[Read more]

  • Agreed. Definitely excited to see it move forward finally. May have come off a bit selfish, but not too happy about being forced out. All for the greater good I guess. 

  • eyesonU started the topic UCLA Drops in the forum Football 1 year ago

    Anybody else feel that last nights game could have/should have been a lot closer?  I’m speaking mainly of the drops by UCLA recievers.  The one post route that got behind, Blair I think it was, should have been six.  There were some others that definitley had an effect on the flow of their offense.  It was like watching our offense last…[Read more]

  • I honestly can’t remember the last kickoff we’ve had before 3pm other than maybe bowl games.  I’m not sure what can be done about it at this point though. The networks seem hell bent on putting the Pac 12 on late.  The east coast must really not care about football out west,  aside from maybe a highly ranked USC or Oregon, otherwise we would get…[Read more]

  • I’ve thought about this too. It makes you wonder where the offense would be without Erickson. I’m sure he recruited other kids, but none as high profile as the three you mentioned. 
    Do we still have access to Florida or was that strictly an Erickson thing? One would think the staff would spend some time down there given our current situation. 

  • Agreed.  Gary Anderson was on yesterday with Riley talking about that very issue. Pointed out Anae specifically and said his non stop motor sometimes leads to overpursuit.  The good news is they are obviously aware of it and are actively trying to correct it.  But it’s a fine line. Make him too aware of it and he may lose some aggresiveness, which…[Read more]

  • eyesonU started the topic Fun stat site in the forum Football 1 year, 4 months ago

    To piggyback off a previous post about Utah’s top 10 opponents, this site lets you compare team by team and gives you an overall record for every school ever played along with some other really cool stats.  Some interesting tidbits;
    Arizona is the only Pac12 team Utah has a winning record against.  (We are tied with Stanford 4-4)
    Utah has a…[Read more]

  •  Obviously there is more than one call that defines a game. I’m simply pointing out that the timeout was a mistake at a critical juncture of the game. 

  • So this is how we are making ourselves feel better? When do we grow up and take a look in the mirror. I actually like whit and think he has done a good job transitioning the program, but you can’t stick your head in the sand over this one. He blew it. Plain and simple. What’s his mantra, no excuses? Does that apply to only the players?
