  • I believe there was a time a few years ago when the Pac12 ensured that no team played another team in conference that was after a bye unless both teams had a bye. Too bad they don’t do that anymore.
    Because of this, I am having doubts about beating Washington. Especially after they lost. Losses can be a motivator for teams to wake up, fix some…[Read more]

  • I hope the team practices in the sprinklers if need be to prepare for this. Remember when RichRod did just that in 2014 – had the team practice in Arizona with the sprinklers on? They won in that wet game at Rice-Eccles 42-10 with Utah committing 4 turnovers.

  • I thought I heard from last night’s Wash St. / UCLA game while watching the game that the defensive line of Wash St averages only 270 pounds. However, when I thought I heard that I wasn’t fully paying attention and I might not have heard that, or heard it wrong. Can anyone confirm?

    If correct, then I think Utah can control the game and keep them…[Read more]

  • BD replied to the topic It’s 9/11. Never forget. in the forum Misc 2 months ago

    I was at work. We had a TV in the break room. It was on all day.

    I’ll never forget one guy that worked with us – he was a Muslim from Pakistan. When the first tower was hit, we stood around the TV in the break room watching it – we all thought it was just a plane accident. But this guy from Pakistan, who was normally very sociable, isolated…[Read more]

    Yeah worries me too. But we’ll have a few games of film on them that Stanford doesn’t. Hope that helps a bit.

  • BYU fans are already gloating like they won last year

    They are gloating like they have already won this year also. I’ve never seen them so confident. Not even close.

    I am not so arrogant to think Utah winning is a sure-given thing. Still, anything can happen. But I do think it will take BYU being +3 or more in turnovers, plus a bunch of bad…[Read more]

  • That 2013 game has one of my favorite Ute moments in the rivalry. Check this out – when Utah went up 13-0, was when we knew it was going to be a win. In the video here, you see the touchdown play, and Travis Wilson flashes the U sign to BYU fans. That along with ESPN’s brilliant move of playing that Parachute (Higher) song was perfect – I love…[Read more]

  • 54-10.

    Funny thing is, I didn’t watch that game live. For some stupid reason, I thought Utah would lose that game, so we decided to do something else instead. My wife and I decided to go to Rocky Mountain Raceway that night, and I would record the Utah/BYU game and watch it later when we got home if Utah won. Well, we heard about the blow-out…[Read more]

  • BD replied to the topic Zach Moss in the forum Football 2 months, 4 weeks ago

    The backup running backs should be good, but there is definitely a drop off from Moss. My biggest concern with backups will be ball control. You know BYU will be out to create turnovers – they probably know they won’t win without them, and with inexperience at the running back position should Moss not play, that will be a concern. Still, Utah…[Read more]

  • You’d think Google would penalize for it. I was curious, so I asked my brother, who is a Google SEO expert. He’s been doing it for as long as anybody in Utah, and it is a major component of his business, which markets web sites, branding, SEO, etc.

    He said something like the following:

    Google rarely punishes websites any longer unless you’re…[Read more]

  • I’m bored as hell at work, so I wanted to take some time to describe a little bit of the Brave browser and rewards.

    I’ve been using the Brave browser for about a month now, and it is awesome. It’s built on Chrome, but as far as ads/trackers are concerned, it is as opposite to Chrome as possible. Chrome is from Google, and they have an incentive…[Read more]

  • Ya! Works for me. It was broken but now is fixed.

    I too, am a software engineer. Been doing it since ’94, where I graduated from the U of U with a CS degree – so I have 25 years of experience writing code. So, I too, appreciate the hard work to keep this site going. People who don’t write code, have no idea of the complexity and time required to…[Read more]

  • BD replied to the topic Two Players I'm Excited For in the forum Football 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    I will be excited to see how Devin Lloyd turns out at LB. I think we might be pleasantly surprised. I saw him close up after the spring game, and wow, he caught my eye – he definitely looks the part. I thought, “man I would hate to have him chase me down!”. I am sure it will take some time for him to catch on, but Scalley will utilize him well I…[Read more]

  • BYU’s Empey was a freshman all-American and was recently rated one of the top rated centers for this season, although I forget which publication rated him as such. Hoge is their other olineman. He’s solid also. A former Notre Dame 4* commit who transferred to BYU. I don’t know much about either other than what I posted here. But with that, Hans’…[Read more]

  • I am not convinced the WR recruiting has been bad. Look at Bryan Thompson, a 3*/4* recruit and Solomon Enis a solid 4* recruit. Both are recent recruits with impressive offer lists. They are young, and haven’t had their breakout seasons yet, but I am expecting that this year. If they don’t end up being excellent receivers, then the problem is…[Read more]

  • BD replied to the topic interview with JB in the forum Football 4 months, 1 week ago

    Interesting that the team has noticed that BYU has been talking. I know OnlyU mentioned it – so the staff knows it. And Blackmon here mentions it.

    I love it. BYU players and fans talking is the worst thing for them. It increases the “chip on the shoulder” for the Utes. Stupidest thing for BYU to be talking and have the Utes take notice. Stupid.…[Read more]

  • Here’s a bit of twisted logic. Utah hasn’t won at USC since what? 1916? I think. I honestly believe that will be a contributing motivating factor to win at the Colliseum this year. Granted, the motivation to win the South you have to probably win at the Colliseum is by far the strongest motivating factor. But the embarrassment of not winning…[Read more]

  • Remove the “#slide5” from the end of the link, and it will go to the beginning of the article.

  • #5 Leki Fotu. And to think that he was a Rivals 2-star recruit. I remember on signing day Whitt talking about him and briefly mentioning how ridiculous it was that he was considered a 2-star player.
