    Lisfranc in the Spring.  Just gonna depend on how quickly he heals.  Not practicing yet.  6-8 weeks immobile and then the same amount of time to recover.  Usually hurts for a couple months after that.  Potentially could come back during the season but I’m not sure that would do us much good to take that risk honestly.  Up to him until it’s…

    Forgot Lloyd…freakish athlete and big body.  Lights have to turn on though still.  Bernard and Pirtle will take that pressure off him though so he’ll have time to figure things out.

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Camp observations in the forum Football 1 day, 14 hours ago

    We work hard…camp is a grind sorting everything out especially as we’ve gotten better with depth/talent.  We had to play with a chip on our shoulder especially when we joined the league.  We needed that intangible.  Now our two deep is close to where we need it.  Not quite there yet but a lot closer than ever.  Because of that Coach has adjusted…[Read more]

    Absoultely…being in the Pit isn’t a terrible thing.  Means they’re close to getting back.  Teammates prod them to return for fear of losing time as well. Nothing serious in the Pit.

    Guys starting to wear down…tired and banged up.  10 gassers today – 8 last week on Thursday so figure that’s the toughest day before settling in.  Light day tomorrow, scrimmage Sat then into prep.  5 or 6 guys in the pit today including 2 top WR’s. Nothing looks serious.  Huntley/Offense is improved without question.  Huntley’s arm strength and…[Read more]

    “Utah” is right 95% of the time.  Pretty good without connections.  And he’s right about Yassmin as well.  He’s HUGE and strong as shit.  Smart as hell.  It will take some time but he’s a guy that should become a factor at some point

  • Coaches doing a great job with managing risk.  Smart, veteran team so pray, cross your fingers, knock on wood or whatever else you need to do to keep this in check! 
    Love our depth!

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Francis Bernard with Utah in the forum Football 4 days, 16 hours ago

    Very realistic.  We have time to get him up to speed but I expect he’ll be ready full time by Washington (probably much sooner).  He’s in very good shape and has had access to the defensive playbook/terminology for sometime.  He will play in the NFL.  

    Bottom line is that the depth he brings WAS the missing piece.  Cannot wait to see this D…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Bernard is at the football facility in the forum Football 1 week ago

    Lol…I guarantee he’ll earn what he is eventually given.  Nothing will be handed to him

  • Onlyu replied to the topic DHC is out for the season in the forum Football 1 week, 4 days ago

    DHC broke his wrist a while back.  A good time for him to redshirt with our depth and also give it some time to heal a little better.  

  • Not a big surprise as most have anticipated this for a while.  He’ll have to earn some reps on special teams for a week (ish) but the one potential depth problem area should get a major boost next week.  This takes the pounding off of Chase and lets he and Barton run free to disrupt with elite LB speed.  Keeps everyone fresh and allows the young…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Great Preview on Utah: in the forum Football 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Better equipped??  Good question.  Maybe but …Riley, Orchard, Fanaika, Palepoi, Dimmick, Gianni, Mokofisi, Norris and Blechen in 2013 was a pretty good group.  Granted some of those guys were young and Scalley wasn’t the DC.  If we didn’t do it then we probably won’t under Whit.  

    That said the depth this year is still better behind the front…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Great Preview on Utah: in the forum Football 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Nice article…thanks for sharing. They actually did some research and mentioned the Bernard possibility which most have ignored (including the local media). That’s a huge piece! No news is good news with Francis right now so things are still very positive that he arrives soon. Pirtle, Vickers and Lewis don’t get much mention yet either but…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic 2018 Camp Depth Chart in the forum Football 4 weeks ago

    Cody is one of the team leaders and is fearless and extremely physical.  I expect he will have a very good year.  Most of his mistakes are the result of his over-aggressiveness which is not something you try to coach out of a linebacker.  IF/When Bernard gets in you have your bruiser in the middle with NFL size and speed and your speed guys in…[Read more]

  • Would be a big negative but I’m not overly concerned with either at this point.  Both SHOULD be fine

  • Still waiting on a couple impact guys in Bernard and Pirtle but this is a 4 star guy that we’ve been trying to get in for a while.  Return game and WR group just got better!  Had SEC offers…exceptional athlete.  

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Moar Utah Football Talk in the forum Football 1 month ago

    I’d argue that Thompson, Boyd, and Enis will play in the NFL or at least reach the level of the guys you mention.  Mariner, Simpkins and potentially Covey will get a look as well.  Very similar…Enis, Boyd and Thompson are higher rated incoming prospects than those listed above as well.  

    Point taken on catches but in fairness Boyd wasn’t…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Moar Utah Football Talk in the forum Football 1 month ago

    First of all we are in a much better position at WR top to bottom than we probably ever have been albeit maybe slightly inexperienced.

    We’re splitting hairs a little with Mariner, Covey, Nacua, and Simpkins. They’re all right there but Thompson on paper is one of the more talented receivers we’ve landed at the U. 6’2”/210…plenty physical,…[Read more]

  • Morgan doesn’t take the BYU job…Just not in him to do so.  You won’t find a guy besides a few here that is more of a Utah guy than he is. UTE!! 

    He’ll have other options if he chooses but comes from a great successful family and has carved out a very good living on his own coaching.  The lure of the money is probably secondary to a head job so…[Read more]

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Moar Utah Football Talk in the forum Football 1 month ago

    Utah is right. Bryan made a big jump before tearing his pectoral muscle in winter weights. He still had issues with full extension in the spring after surgery but will be 100% for camp.

    1 – Thompson

    2 – Boyd (has the talent to be on the 1 line…has to stop pouting and compete/Simpkins

    3 – Mariner (Wilson – Senior year…could be a…[Read more]
