  • proudute started the topic Question about ASU in the Football forum. 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    How do we expect to move the ball agaisnt an ASU defense that stopped one of the league’s best quarterbacks and running backs.  The ASU defense destroyed the UW offense.  We don’t have the talent that UW has on offense.  Why should things be different tomorrow?
    I am not trying to be negative.  It’s an honest question.  I know ASU’s defense had…[Read more]

  • I like Gary.  He is a good man and helped advance Utah football to where it is today.  I wish him well.  If we had an opening at Utah, I would say we should consider him.  But, Morgan is now our guy.  He may end up at Ohio State.

  • Is there somethng we don’t know like Fitts and Anae being out?
    Did the depth charts get released?
     

  • I don’t know that we can.  But, I think we can win if we prevent him from getting the big chunk runs that he has been racking up every week.  I think we need to try to contain him.  If he gets 5-8 yard runs – that may be okay.  If he starts breaking runs for 30+ yards – we will be in trouble IMO.  He is an amzaing running back and if we keep him…[Read more]

  • They are getting destroyed every week. 
    The same can be said for BYU an San Jose. 
    Im interested to see how we play next week against a good team. We certainly need to play better if we hope to win.
     
     

  • The good news is that Tuttle will also be visiting next weekend.  He has been an active recruiter for the Utes since he committed last January.  If you are a wide receiver, you would want to play 4 years with a guy like Tuttle.
    Next weekend could be a very important weekend for the Utes in more way than one.

  • Because Huntley got injured, he is now pulling the “I told you so” card.  He says it was a normal sack.  I disagree, Huntley was running, tackled from behind and landed poorly on his shoulder.  Many if not most would have been injured.  It had nothing to do with his size.  Fitts has been hurt two weeks in a row.  Was it because he is too small?…[Read more]

  • 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]

  • proudute started the topic Expectations in the Football forum. 2 months ago

    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]
