  • Finally got around to watching “College Football 150”.  My takeaway is that in less than 15 years 2004 and 2008 have been erased from college football lore.  Boise St. recieved a 7 minute segment on a 90 minute special for an improbable win over Oklahoma with no mention of the original or best BCS busters.  I wholly recognize that the true reward…[Read more]

  • Those freshmen aren’t exactly 2 star scrubs.  Also, I wish this damn board would make up its mind about preseason rankings. For years they were crap and didn’t matter, now they are gospel because the Utes got some love?

  • The difference I see is that Miami has just as much talent as Florida. Ybu doesn’t fit that bill.

    First, welcome to a Husky in Ute Country.

    As some context to the Utah recruiting strategy, after Utah built its PAC12 roster and started consistently winning other coaches in the conference started paying attention.  A certain snake oil salesman at ASU and a few others started tracking the low 3 stars Utah was getting to commit early.  Then they…[Read more]

    You need to pay better attention and complain less.  The coaches have talked about his progress in almost every interview during camp.  You have a point on the lack of P5 offers, Bartel and others commented on it at the time wondering why you would recruit a 6’4″ 215 lb. “athlete” (FS/WR).

    The problem with Lloyd’s recruiting was that he didn’t…[Read more]

  • We never disparage that handsome son of a bitch!  He has been on the hype train for a while and has been one of the most vocal advocates of our program for years.  Big fan of Yogi!

  • Hellhound152 replied to the topic My bold prediction in the forum Football 3 weeks ago

    If they announce position changes for Green and/or Brumfield in the next couple of weeks your prediction may have some legs.  Otherwise play him 4, give him a year of strength and conditioning, and see if he pulls ahead of the committee in 20′. 

  • Just a thought for the one game at a time, this team is overhyped, debbie downers out there.
    For the better part of 25 years the Utah football team has been (in the eyes of it’s fans) the Rodney Dangerfield of college football.  To the outside world cries of Respect us, see we are good, what more do you want? have been thrown at the national…[Read more]

  • James famously quipped after Utah’s 2008 victory over TCU.  “What would happen if you lined that team up against Alabama, it wouldn’t even be a game.”  He was right… Alberts made similar comments in 04′.

    No the Utes aren’t Bama or Clemson but currently neither are Michigan, Ohio State, USC, Oklahoma, Texas, need I go on. Enjoy the sun while…[Read more]

    Composite. (a chance to troll Pace, priceless!!!!)

  • I don’t really think it is a situation where the waiver factors in.  I think that has been way overblown.  Of course the coaches want him to have 4 to play 4 rather than 3 to play 3.  I bet dollars to donuts no matter what happens in the Spring if Huntley goes down Shelley trots out to take the next snap. As a general thought not directed at you…[Read more]

    Well, no DPY for Chase.  Start your conspiracy theories now about the CU ejection.

  • Does Thorson suffer from Brett Favre syndrome or does he have issues with identifying coverage?  The times I have watched NW on TV he seems to be the best player on offense and is trying to do everything.    

  • Reading the article that Mark Harlan had to lobby the Holiday Bowl makes me ill.  It should not be his job to hold the bowls in check.  Larry “I am running a media company” Scott should be the one insisting that the Pac12 gets the most favorable bowl matchups possible to improve the perception of his product.  The playoff is critical to the…[Read more]

    Number 17 in the final CFP rankings.  Clearly the #3 team in the Pac12, division champs.  The Bowl wizards will have to explain ignoring the number next to the game if the Holiday passes on the Utes!

  • How true is the narrative that Chris Petersen has owned Whitt?  I contend that Petersen has won only in the games where he had the superior team and frankly in the PAC12 era the Utes have performed better than expected in games against UW despite the resulting losses.

  • A. Smith has so much more to give than as an analyst.  Would not be surprised to see him running a hedge fund or teaching econ at a University in the near future.  He could do anything he wants in or outside of football.  What a tremendous example for young people.

    Yes!  See you in Santa Clara!
