    Link pretty much sums it up.

  • Spring: Lacrosse and Spring football.

  • Agree. I have enjoyed the competitive growth the Utah Olympic and other sports are having in the P12 outside of football and BB.

    Refreshing to checkout a LAX game, Gymnastics meet or other sports where the coaches are not grossly over paid and fun to watch with more purity of the sport still present.

  • Book it for the next 5 years. Four play-off teams some combination of Clemson, LSU, Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia. Maybe an occasional Big 12 team to get blasted by one of the SEC teams.
    P12 is not even close to any of the above 5 teams. Oregon to be the mainstay at the Rose Bowl.  Crazy how athletic, fast and well coached Clemson and LSU were…[Read more]

    Big measurement is retaining players. LK needs to be served notice if the player purge happens again this year. A little tired as a paying fan listening to the media squawk about how lucky Utah is to have KW and LK as coaches.

  • Agree X2. Gravity of the two losses and all the media hype leading up to the P12 Championship over shadowed for the most part a great season. CU exposed some of Utah’s vulnerability on offense. The San Antonio trip seemed good for the team to have five days of fun together one more time. Hard to stay motivated to play at a high level after the…[Read more]

  • Coach Erickson’s impact cannot be understated. Utah would not be where they are today without him. Could argue he helped keep KW employed during his time at Utah. Before the last two years (a result of his recruiting), Utah’s only winning records in the P12 was when he DE was on staff. No coincidence Utah had some offensive success when he was on…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Offensive Line in the forum Football 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Moss made the Oline look better than they were. ZMs stat of most yards after first hit/missed tackle is telling. He was constantly muscling out of hits in the backfield. He was amazing and will do well in the NFL.

    Oline gets the coach speak pass for being “young” as we’ve heard from the coaches as an excuse this year. They really did not improve…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic 4th downs in the forum Football 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Agree. Mind boggling why Utah does not have a QB sneak in the play book. Roll Rising out there if there’s fear of TH getting hurt, getting the snap, or whatever the concern is not to run it. Maybe Ludwig does not have confidence in the Oline getting the yard on a QB sneak. Regardless, seems odd. The initial Oregon 4th down same thing. The A gap…[Read more]

  • Hard to put much energy into the outcome of these holiday bowl games outside of the Rose Bowl and play-off. Seems Utahs pinnacle of success has been winning the P12 South. Glad the players were able to spend 4-5 days together having fun outside of football. TH’s comment summed it up, good for the kids that took a leap and chose Utah. On to next…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Arizona St in the forum Football 4 weeks ago

    Agree. ASU is a tough team to cheer for in football or BB. P12 reputation has been having a slow death for the past 10 years. USC and UCLA desperately hang on to their storied past success in football-basketball. A generation of fans is passing by since USCs ten year 1996-2006ish era of football supremacy. Utah’s beat down from Oregon was a…[Read more]

  • The past 10 years of poor leadership on offense has been a huge barrier to recruiting. DEs short stent as a consultant and Ludwig’s coming back home to retire is why Utah has had recent offensive success. Utah’s marginal recruiting in certain position groups, WR, OL, LB, QB (improving with Ludwig) is a notable reason for the talent gap and lack of…[Read more]

  • I know it’s Ryan Leaf and he does a great job in the booth. Man, maybe it’s my shitty TV, but he sounds a lot like Will Ferrel tonight. Could be the Bourbon…Go Utes!

  • Agree, 8-4 at the minimum. With Ludwig in the program for a year and the new QBs, Utah will be solid on offense. Fans may be surprised how good the new QBs will be. Oline, will be better. Covey and Thompson will be back. IMO, Ennis, Dixon, Vele, and the new WRs will be getting more passes. Huntley’s numbers are amazing. Overall, the pass game will…[Read more]

  • Good team next year. Utah defense going in with a lot of players to replace seems always seems to get it done every year. Utah defense having players to replace will still be rock solid. Upside is offense is getting better not relying on defense to hang on through a bunch of 3 and outs. This year showed a strong offense makes the defense so much…[Read more]

  • Portal or grad transfer is a good way to go for QBs. Only one position to fight for and high level D1 QBs don’t like to sit and watch from the sidelines. Look at the USC QB situation. I would say next year will be the year for heavy QB recruiting. Probably why Powell flipped after signing Bentley and Rising’s upside. Seems Ludwig wants big pro…[Read more]

  • Why not put an athlete back there to keep teams at the LOS longer in some situations with the option to legitmately run or throw a pass? Have to believe Ritchie would be no worse punting than what we saw this year. Special teams needs a bit of an overhaul next year. 

  • Agree. A bunch of Frosh and some Sophs beating Kentucky is something Utah would never have been able to do in the past. There is a lot of talent on this team. No problem with the slow game if executed well. Coach K controlled the tempo. Props to Calipari traveling out West to play Utah. It’s good for the game and his team will be better for it.…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Oregon upsets @Michigan in the forum Pac-12 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    That’s how a team punches a ticket to the March dance before conference play starts. It is fascinating how one guy with a ton of money can single handedly build a college empire. I still think the filming of Animal house put UO on the map haha:)! The school location is wet 150 days of the year and UO is academically at best very meh. I get the…[Read more]
