  • I wish Andersen would have stayed here.  I think he adds a lot to the defense.  I also hate to see Ena go, but for heaven’s sakes – he is getting a promotion.  I do not blame either for moving on for a promotion.  I believe both are leaving on very good terms with Whit and have not burned any bridges.  I understand that Gary is coaching the Utes…[Read more]

    Thanks for this great site and all you do to keep enhancing it.  The other Utes site that I visited for over 20 years has become something I no longer like to visit (at least for Utah sports).  This is a great site with some excellent posters with good insights.  I appreciate reading other opinions and being able to post something without the…[Read more]

  • Has he enrolled at a school yet?

  • I know Wells isn’t going to coach.  He has taken most all of his assistant with him to TT.  Who is going to coach them next week?

    Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
    50 years from now the players can tell their grandkids that they played in the Bad Boy Mowers Bowl.  At least it’s played in Tampa and not Boise or Albuquerque.  Soon there will be a bowl game in Laramie.
     
     

  • This is just one Utah fan’s opinion.
    1. 2008  It’s a close call with 2004, but they played a much tougher schedule in 2008.
    2. 2004  Very fun season.  Best offense ever!
    3. 1994  Ended the season number 8 in the nation.  First time we ever ended up in the top ten.
    4. 2018  The middle 4 games were amazing.  Unfortunately a slow start and…[Read more]

  • Las Vegas already has enough visitors between Christmas and New Years.  They do not need anymore.  I hear they have refuse to move the bowl game to a late December date.

  • We see the results of a bad season for the PAC12 with 1 NY6 bid compared to 4 for the SEC.  We may not have got even one bid, except the rules says we get the Rose Bowl. (I still think WSU was screwed.)
    I hate to say it, but the premiere teams in the conference need to play better; i.e. USC, UW, Oregon and Stanford.  Now, I want the Utes to…[Read more]

  • Outside the top 4, the selection process is horribly flawed.  A four loss Texas team gets a NY6 bid over a 2 loss WSU team.  It’s not right.  Also, the SEC got four of the 12 bids including two three loss teams.  
    I understand that the PAC12 needs to pick things up and quickly.  But, WSU had a great season.  They deserved better than this.
    It’s…[Read more]

  • ProudUte started the topic Next Season in the forum Football 2 weeks ago

    What will the team look like next season?

    On defense we lose our two great linebackers and both safeties.  That seems scary.  However, I believe that there will not be a huge drop off at LB.  We have some great players who can fill in.  I have no clue who will start at the safety positions, but I am sure Scalley has a plan.  All our defensive…[Read more]

    He should play in the bowl game. Shelley gave his all. I have nothing against him, but IMO Huntley is the better leader.   I hope Covey is Okay. 

  • proudute started the topic Great effort tonight. in the Football forum. 2 weeks ago

    The defense was amazing, especially considering your offense left you in the field all day. UW has an excellent defense and we were playing without four top offensive players.  UW’s only TD was a fluke pick 6.  
    We showed we belonged there.  We were in a position to win, but made too many mistakes. 
    I feel bad for Simpkins.  Yes, he should have…[Read more]

  • proudute started the topic Defense is reaally amazing in the Football forum. 2 weeks ago

    especially when you consider that your offense has so little possession time and UW had had the ball in good field position. 
    But, the defense is not going to win this game by themselves.  It appears our offense is being dominated in the trenches. 
    Very stupid not going for the Hail Mary at the end of the half. 

  • Today is a huge game for you guys.  Regardless of what happens tonight, I am proud of what you have accomplished on and off the field.  You have faced adversity numerous times and yet you have accomplished something no othe Ute football team has.
    Thanks for a fun and succesful season and for representing the University of Utah so well.

  • Playing a very similar schedule.  On paper this looks like a pickem game for sure.  But, I admit there are a few things I see in UW’s favor:

    1.  The way the two teams played in their rivalry games last week.  UW dominated both sides of the ball and could have easily won by a larger margin.  I know it was played in a blizzard which favors UW. …[Read more]

  • proudute started the topic Interesting tidbit in the Football forum. 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    There are five P5 championship games this weekend.  The oddsmakers have the PAC12 game set as the closest of all the games.  Utah is a 5.5 dog.  The next closest is Oklahomas at – 7.5.  The rest are double digit spreads.
     

  • If I just look at the way both teams played this last weekend, I would say Utah will lose by 20+ points.  UW looked very solid on offense and defense against a top ten team.  On the other hand for three quarters – we looked very bad against an average team.
    Looking deeper into UW.  They have not allowed more than 24 points all season in…[Read more]
