      I have it on good authority that CSU offered Holker $2.8 million in NIL money.  Source: trust me, bro.

      If he can lock up the other 2 publications he’d be Utah’s fourth Unanimous All-American and the first that isn’t a special teams player.  The other three are Louie Sakoda (2008), Tom Hackett (2015), and Mitch Wishnowski (2016).

      Super-Duper-Big-Plays are the best kinds of plays.

      I’m really interested to see how this works.  I truly think Colorado is a 2-3 year project for “Coach Prime.”  His presence alone has breathed new life into that program and already there seems to be a renewed vigor in Boulder, which on the whole is a very good thing.

      When he was first introduced as Jackson State’s head coach I was really impressed with his opening press conference.  He just seemed like the perfect fit for a guy wanting to bring attention to HBCUs.  He did that and was very successful but now he’s leaving all that behind and I’m not sure how well his schtick will hold up at this level.  I’m sure he’ll get a lot of really good players to commit and/or transfer into the program but again I don’t expect him to be at Colorado long.  Which either means he turned it around quickly or failed miserably.

      Best of luck to him and the Buffs but I hope this time next year whatever film crew that follows him around cuts a video of him scolding his team for not being near Utah’s level of play.

      Arizona game last year was one of the more frustrating games for me.  I believe Utah was something like a 20+ point favorite last year and Arizona proceeded to go into the bag of tricks all game long because they had nothing to lose.  They basically just hung around all game and it was annoying.

      Well, to give you an idea here is a link to an article that suggests the #3 overall recruit in the 2023 class (according to 247) has an NIL deal potentially worth up to $8 million over the course of his collegiate career.  He may actually be making money from this deal already.  He is committed to Tennessee.

      I just don’t understand how the 247 Composite rating is calculated.  The only thing I do know is whatever Google told me, which is the rating is based on some proprietary algorithm that takes 247, Rivals, and ESPN rankings into account.  Not sure if there are other recruiting services that are factored in.  The numbers for both of those players from those sites are:

      Smith Snowden: 247 – 90 (4-star), Rivals – 5.8 (4-star), ESPN – 80 (4-star)

      Michael Mitchell: 247 – 86 (3-star), Rivals – 5.6 (3-star), ESPN – 81 (4-star)

      So it’s interesting to me that across these three services Snowden has three 4-star rankings but Mitchell has the higher Composite rating.

      I know stars don’t tell the whole story and I’m glad these kids are going to be joining the team.  Just curious how 247 comes to these ratings.

      Smith Snowden has a 4-star rating by 247, Rivals, and ESPN but his 247 composite rating is 3-stars.  I guess I don’t understand the formula, but seems like his composite rating should be bumped up one star.

      We’ll see.  If Troy got the job I’m sure he’d be here a lot.  I know David Shaw spent a lot of time here over the last decade.  Speaking of, David Shaw is a guy I think would be great on this staff.  Maybe he’d be interested in laying low and taking an analyst job or as a position coach under Kyle while he waits for his next big job.  He’d be a great get for us.

      Are these your words or Bill’s words?
