  • Let’s please stay away from politics on this board.  I do not want this board to become what Utefans became.
    Go Utes!!!

  • A normal season with fans – 0%
    A normal schedule with limited or no fans – 0%
    Conference only played this fall with fans – 10% 
    Conference only played this fall with no fans – 20%
    Some kind of college football season possibly winter or spring – 80%
    No football season at all – 20%
    Just my opinions based off what we are seeing.  I truly hope…[Read more]

  • I want college football, but I cannot see a legit pathway to starting college football in September.  Unfortunately, there are too many obstacles.  
    If a working vaccine can be produced by late fall – I predict College football starts in mid-February and we play only conference opponents.
    I don’t know what will happen, but I do know college…[Read more]

  • ProudUte started the topic Scalley in the forum Football 1 week, 4 days ago

    First of all, I understand that everyone has their own opinion about the Scalley incident.  I respect everyone’s opinion and I am not trashing how anyone else feels.  We have all walked in different shoes and had different life experiences that mold us.
    As for me – I think the punishment was too punitive.  I understand that there had to be…[Read more]

  • ProudUte started the topic I hope the best for Morgan in the forum Football 1 month ago

    Morgan made a mistake, maybe even more than one, I don’t know.
    I have seen the tweets of support from his current and former players. They do not believe he is racist.
    I cannot judge how African Americans feel about this because I have not walked in their shoes.  I understand their hurt, but I have not felt it as they have.  It is not for me to…[Read more]

  • I am so sick and tired of all this.  I am not going to take any side on politics other to say that I am disgusted with both sides that they keep blaming each other.  Please just work together and stop this partisan BS (both sides).
    I feel for parents who have to be with their kids 24/7.  It was one thing when it was a week or two, but this is…[Read more]

  • They had five first-round picks and have had ten picks in the first three rounds.  I am not sure how many more will be picked.
    I wonder how good they will be next season.  
    We were a very good team and may have nine or ten picked in the draft.  But, I think you can see why LSU was at an entirely different level.  Alabama has done almost as well…[Read more]

  • I understand we did not play well in the championship game against Oregon.  Crap happens.  A few early questionable calls could have changed the momentum of that game.  And, we were only down a touchdown with under eight minutes to go.  A 70-yard run broke our back.  Oh well.  Oregon was no slouch and we lost.  I can’t let that ruin the 2019…[Read more]

  • I know this is a very challenging time for most people.  The illness is starting to take its toll and many are getting hurt by the economy.  I wish everyone including Cougs well.  I hope we get through the worst of this by early summer, but I haven’t seen anything yet that leads me to believe we will be there.
    Go World!!!

  • I am growing more and more concerned that we will not have a college football season in 2020.  The things working against it:
    – Very little spring practice
    – This should be the time that players are weight training and getting in shape.  Is any of this being done with social distancing.
    – I don’t see the number of cases going down anytime…[Read more]

  • Coronavirus is affecting everyone.  I understand that this is a major health crisis and I appreciate some of the actions taken to prevent spread:
    – Stopping sporting events (I love sports, but I think this is the right thing to do.)
    – Reducing international travel
    – Stopping events like concerts with large crowds 
    – Letting people work from…[Read more]

  • He shut down Utah basketball a month ago.
    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
    I hope Mitchell and Gobert get over this quickly and that there are no long term effects.
    We are in a crisis.  Now we need to come together as a country as we did after 9-11, Pearl Harbor, etc.  It may take years to bounce back from this, but I believe we can and will.
    Go…[Read more]

  • But, he is failing.  We need a new coach, but we won’t get one.  His buyout is something we cannot afford.
    This team looks lost most of the time.  I know we are young, but I also blame that on coach K.
    I hope our new players next year can turn this mess around.
    Go Utes!!!
     

  • ProudUte started the topic Jazz? in the forum NBA 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    I would like to see the Jazz be successful and win a couple of rounds in the playoffs.  Their recent run has looked good, but they have only played 2 teams with a winning record since January 1.  They beat a good Indiana team on Monday, but Indiana had played the previous night in Denver.
    The Jazz have a big problem when facing good teams IMO. …[Read more]

  • I have no idea how many more starting seniors will also be leaving.  That number alone tells you how talented this LSU team was.  As I posted earlier, this may be the best offense in the history of college football.  Are they the best team ever?  Probably not, because of their defense.  Nonetheless, they were a great team.
     

  • They racked up 42 points and over 600 yards against a great defense.  The only time Clemson gave up more than 20 points was to a very good OSU and that was 23 points.
    LSU has an amazing offense.  Clemson threw everything at them,  Burrows was under pressure all night long, yet made some amazing passes and the receivers were even better.  It is…[Read more]

  • The last two games were very painful because we had the potential to do amazing things.  I am not here to debate what went wrong.  I have no clue. The bowl game could be as simple as the team was down because of the Oregon game and didn’t bounce back.
    I am over it all now.  I will choose to remember the 2019 season as a season where we went 11-1…[Read more]

  • ProudUte started the topic Congrats Cal. in the forum Football 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    Way to represent the conference.

  • I am sure he will be a handful for our depleted defensive backfield.  Apparently, he plays slot receiver.  I would assume that coverage will fall mostly on Guidry.  However, I assume that Scalley will mix up coverages in an attempt to confuse texas.
    I read some Texas news articles about him.  He has a chip on his shoulder because he didn’t…[Read more]

  • except that the heart of our defensive backfield will not be playing.  1st team AA, Blackmon cannot play and 2nd team AA Johnson has decided to sit this game out.  Texas is a passing team with a solid QB, this scares me.  If we had all our parts in place, I would think we could take care of Texas by double digits.  I think Texas will be able to…[Read more]
