  • It’s hard to asses our football team based of who we have played.  If you look at how these teams have perfomed the last few weeks, it’s not good.  North Dakota has been destroyed two weeks in a row and SJSU got demolished by a horrible USU team – an then there is BYU.
    What does this all mean?  It means we have played very poor teams and at times…[Read more]

  • This year, Carrington says he is enjoying football again, crediting his renewed enthusiasm to the infrastructure in place at Utah.
    “I think I’m just out there playing this year” Carrington said. “There’s just — I feel like I’m back in high school here at Utah. I mean, high school was some of my best days where I was just out there having fun and…[Read more]

    My wife heard some nieghbors talking football yesterday.  One man is a huge BYU donor, like hundred of thousands.  The other guys said to him, “Saturday had to be brutal for you?”  The donor said, “No, we had a lot of fun because I expected we would get destroyed by Wisconsin.”
    It reminded me of the mid 1970s.  My buddy and I bought season…[Read more]

  • The team is still very sloppy at times and that worries me.  I believe this will cost us some games.
    It’s a darn good thing we have Carrington!!!
    Huntley has some brilliant moments and then …  But, this was only his thrid start.  He is still learning.
    Out running game is pathetic right now.  The big reason is probably the line blocking.
    They…[Read more]

  • to make him the starter.
     
    I wonder if he has the balls to admit he was wrong.
    Huntley has the best arm of any Ute QB since Alex Smith IMO.
     

  • He did some very special things last night. It’s obvious why he is the starter. He made a couple of big mistakes, but I think he will learn with more playing time.   The biggest mistake was late in the 4th when he slid too early. We needed the first down and it appeared like he could have easily made it. 
    Huntley has a huge upside IMO.  The…[Read more]

  • This should not have been close. We made so many stupid mistakes.  We let these dingbats back in the game. 
    Huntley played a very good game, but made two very costly mistakes. Our running backs did nothing.  We need more from them. But, my big concern is the stupid mistakes. We need to correct these or it will be a long…[Read more]

  • There is no doubt about it. I hope they look horrible tomorrow, mostly because our defense looks good. It would seem that our defense should dominate these guys.  But, we had a running back last season that looked horrible and lazy in the first two games. He quit, came back and then all of a sudden was remarkable. 
    So, what happened between the…[Read more]

  • Below are quotes from Steve Tate and Reno Mahe this morning.  I love football and have been watching this rivalry for over 50 years.  But, this is a reminder to me to keep everything in perspective.  Think of the people in Houston and now Florida.  Think of those suffering from cancer.  I want Utah to win big on Saturday.  However, I need to keep…[Read more]

  • BYU’s offense may be the worst I ever remember from a BYU team.  They are totally inept and simply cannot run the ball.  Utah has a great run defense.  BYU will be forced to open it up.  But, their tight end is the only receiver who seems to have D1 talent.  If I was Scalley, I would make sure that we mix up the coverage on the tight end to…[Read more]

  • This is correctgable, but outside of SJSC – we would lose each game with the same number and seriousness of the penalties.  None were the 5 yard variety.  This was very frustrating for me to watch.  This is unacceptable.
    Bytheway, the roughing the kicker penalty was bogus.  He was blocked into the kicker.  All of the other penalties were likely…[Read more]

  • I loved how Stanford took it to Rice right off and kept it going the entire first half.  I would love to see us do the same thing tonight.
    In my memory we have lost to two Big Sky teams in the past.  We lost to Boise and Idaho when they were in the Big Sky.  Like ND, they were very good D1A teams.  But, we should never lose to a team from that…[Read more]

  • i wouldn’t be happy.  If I had made plans for a trip to Texas and all of this happened, I would be disappointed.  In the end, I feel for the poor people of Houston. This is truly a disaster. Football just doesn’t seem that important at a time like this. 

  • They are struggling at coming up with a place to play that makes both teams happy.  They should play at RES.  BYU would be happy because they wouldn’t have to travel very far and LSU should be happy because BYU can’t seem to win there.
     

  • BYU – Portland State
    BYU’s offense was anemic at best.  Their defense looked good (not great).  I suspect BYU is better than they showed on Saturday.  However, They have a number of issues to resolve IMO.  There is nothing there to be afraid of.  I think their defense will do well this season.  They may look a lot like our Ute teams of the last…[Read more]

  • I have always said that he seems like a very grounded young man.  Being a good person is much more important than football.  I wish him well in all that he does.
    I doubt that he has the skills to be an NFL QB.  I hope that he stays around as a grad assistant at the U.

    Why?
    Williams was a below average PAC 12 QB last year.  He only completed 53% of his passes, which is horrible for a college QB.  I was honestly worried about this season.
    Does this mean that all of our problems are now behind us?  Certainly not.  Huntley has to grow and learn.  He has very little game time experience.  I suspect that in order…[Read more]
