  • I keep hearing talk about how Utah isn’t a destination recruits want to go to because of the weather, culture, blah blah blah. I don’t buy that argument one bit. Michigan has crappy weather. Ohio State has crappy weather. Bend, Oregon has cold weather. It rains every friggin day in Seattle.

  • jordan-buckner started the topic New OC Take in the Football forum. 1 month, 1 week ago

    I refuse to neither get too excited nor too disappointed in whoever Utah hires as its new OC. Why? Because we’ll have no clue how good of a hire it was until roughly October of 2019. So, what’s the point in raising my expectations or pissing and moaning? 
    Troy Taylor was….ok by most measures. He made our offense slightly better. But not the…[Read more]

  • Recruiting still exists. At some point in the offseason recruits have to select their top ten. They must sign waivers indicating they will play and attend any of those ten schools. 
    Do a giant draft. Maybe you split up P5 and G5 into two drafts, maybe not. Teams can only draft players that are in the player’s top ten. You can only draft as many…[Read more]

  • So looking at Utah’s remaining 2019 targets…it doesn’t look like there’s a whole lot there to boost our recruiting ranking. That’s pretty disappointing. Someone talk me off the ledge here. I get we have fewer schollies to offer this year than usual. But the kids we have signed and are targeting don’t appear to be anything special this year.…[Read more]

    Anyone else supposed to sign today? Currently sitting at a composite average of 85.14 on 247 sports, which ranks us 9th in the Pac 12. Woof. 

  • jordan-buckner started the topic Troy Taylor in the Football forum. 2 months ago

    I think there will be some good that comes of the TT move and some bad. 
    The Good: Haven’t been overly impressed with TT’s recruiting. He didn’t seem to learn from his mistakes and reverted to being too pass happy sometimes. TT definitely had to learn alot in his two years. Made a lot of rookie mistakes. Hopefully the next hire isn’t so green and…[Read more]

  • Sucks about Jayden. Hopefully the coaches can come at him hard this next week and change his mind (more likely, his mother’s mind) about ASU.
    Whitt has a very unique philosophy. He doesn’t cater to the “me first” athlete. Unfortunately, alot of high profile quarterbacks have a “me first” attitude and will go where coaches tell them they will…[Read more]

  • I see another 9-3 season coming. Why? We always have a “wtf” loss. So there’s one loss. I doubt we get over the Washington hump. Peterson’s team is just better than ours. So there’s two losses. I’m also willing to bet that either: a) USC is much improved in 2019 or b) Leach works his magic and reloads yet again. So, we probably lose one of those…[Read more]

  • Whether Utah wins or loses tonight it has still been an incredibly successful season for Utah. I see a lot of fans have their eyes on roses. I hope the players don’t. One game at a time. Utah will need to play their absolutely best game of the season in order to win tonight. 
     
    I’m trying to keep my expectations in check for this game. Hoping…[Read more]

    i know it’s only been two games but am I The Only one that thinks Shelley might be better than Huntley? 

  • Dwight89 replied to the topic The November Slump in the forum Football 3 months, 1 week ago

    I don’t think depth is the reason for our losses this year. Pretty sure (~80% confident) we were losing the AZ State game regardless of what happened to Huntley. We lost the battle in the trenches plain and simple and our starting Cornerbacks got torched all day long. 

  • I’m seeing rumors on the twitterverse about some big injuries that haven’t been reported…..so…I’m pulling out the batsignal and paging @OnlyU….

    @OnlyU, any insights you can share? 

  • Paging @pacemanyung are you there? You left some crow on your table and you need to come finish eating it. 

  • While Ute Hub has been eating itself alive this week I’ve been doing a lot of ponderizing and I think I’ve finally figured out what’s been bothering me about Troy Taylor this season. They say that the best coaches will adjust their scheme to match the talent and abilities of their players. That flexibility helps avoid problems like what we’re…[Read more]

  • jordan-buckner started the topic Offensive Ineptitude in the Football forum. 5 months ago

    at this point Utah has scored 14 points in the last SEVEN QUARTERS. That’s all I have to say about that 

  • Offensive Line, offensive line, offensive line. Fix this, and Utah wins the South, even with our other issues (Our baffling inability to feed the beast, Huntley holding on to the ball, receiver drops, special teams woes, etc). Don’t fix the O-line, though, and Utah finishes fourth or fifth in the south, again. It’s that simple. Harding’s group…[Read more]

  • Are they really our rival if they don’t view us as their rival, though? 

    BYU is still our biggest rival. Has the rivalry changed? Sure. In my experience the fan board diehards tend to be the only ones with your viewpoint. Everyone else loves the Holy War and looks forward to it every year.

    Bring on the downvotes for spitting the truth.

    Alright I just went and looked up last year’s recruiting class and it looks like at this point last year we had three commits:

     

    Malone Mataele

    Jack Tutle

    Hunter Lotelelei

     

    That makes me feel better. Thanks for talking me off the ledge everyone.
