  • Every season hoping Utah is holding back some sort of secret plays that IMO never seem to come out unless you pull out ten years worth in one game the Utes did against Oregon in Eugene. I guess the hand off-pitch back-huck to a covered Vele is the recent go to, over used trick play. I would not expect to see anything much different from Utah than…[Read more]

  • P12 Network works for me. With all the bootleg streaming access, game is easy to find if you don’t have P12 network. As a fan, would rather watch the P12 crews than Gilmore, Papadankis, Herbstreit/Fowler, etc. The ESPN and Fox clowns know very little about the P12 teams other than USC they are broadcasting, mispronounce player names, and don’t add…[Read more]

  • Scott Mitchell summed it up on KSL Sports Zone (see below). Google it or check Twitter for the sound version.  
    “I am not interested in moral victories. I am so tired of hearing everybody say give Florida credit. Bull crap, you all stunk in that game. It had nothing to do with Florida.”
    Sly said some good stuff as well on KALL 700. I get the…[Read more]

  • Good points. Utah is zero threat outside the hash marks. All the WR hype is just that. Utah media is also afraid to point out KWs glaring inability to make sound coaching decisions in close games against good teams and good head coaches. Napier a young, relatively new coach out coaching an experienced coach should never happen. KW did it multiple…[Read more]

  • Pains me to admit I re-watched the Florida game. Definitely a different view the second time around minus the family screaming, food and drinks flying. A lot of what we all know. Not in any order of importance. Overall, the P12 is Utah’s to lose. Having USC, OSU, Stanford, and UA at home is huge. Biggest challenge may be UCLA and WSU on the road.…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Another big game loss in the forum Football 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    End of game coaching in close games has been a blind spot for KW throughout his career.

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Florida in the forum Football 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    Agree, KW again struggles coaching down the end in another close game against a team Utah should have beat. This has been a blind spot for him throughout his career. No score inside the 10 yard line with 1st down two times. Some odd coaching decisions on the road as mentioned difference in the game.

    Defense line has some issues. Barton looks like…[Read more]

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

    Napier does not want Richardson running the ball ad lib all day. UF has zero depth at QB right now. Sure they want to beat Utah, not at the expense of losing their QB before SEC play. Keeping Richardson healthy for SEC play is the priority. This game means a hell of lot more to Utah than Florida. Agree, Napier is a run heavy coach. Utah shuts down…[Read more]

  • Looking forward to see how the Utah coaching staff step up their game at the same level put on their players. 
    How does KW coach at the end of close games against good coaches and teams? An area IMO he has struggled with in key games during his tenure. To an extent, we saw some of this in the Rose Bowl. I get other factors in play with Rising…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Bugs 🦟🦟 in the forum Football 1 month ago

    Why not have all the players wear bug screens over their helmets and camelbacks during the game :)? So the way everybody talks Florida players seem to be immune to the dehydration affect of heat and humidity. Would not be surprised to see Utah go no huddle on the first drive and in certain field positions throughout the game knowing Florida’s…[Read more]

  • Not at all confident. Would not surprise me at all if UF blocks a punt or runs a KO back for a TD and overall big return yardage. Same kicker struggles kicking touch backs at the RES. Utah KO return coverage and punt team were awful all season. Did not get fixed all season costing Utah the Rose Bowl, no reason to believe to anything has changed…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Nice article on Glover in the forum Football 1 month, 1 week ago

    RB at Utah is absolutely LOADED and all of the RBs have very unique, elite talents making them very hard to defend. Teams are going to see a way different look/style from Thomas, Bernard, Glover, and Curry. All the talk is about getting the vertical pass game going, man, stopping Utah’s running game is going to be a tough out. Need to have zero…[Read more]

  • Things to look for out of Fall camp. More off season filler on the back stretch. Just pointing out some concerns as there are waaaay more positives going into camp.
    1. QB #2. Usually for Utah the battle in Fall camp is for who is the best of a group of QBs to be announced 1 hour before kick-off as if KW is hiding some secret weapon at QB. Good…[Read more]

  • ND would be foolish contractually joining the B1G. Fox has everyone glossy eyed with all the big money push. Beyond money, I have yet to hear any talk of a coherent conference plan that benefits ND better than they have it. There is still a ton of unforeseen risk in play as Fox and ESPN march forward alienating 70%-80% of college programs and…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Alamo Bowl so says CFN… in the forum Football 2 months ago

    If USC wins the P12 championship and goes to the CFP, the P10 is officially dead.

  • A long shot. If the P12 can find a valued balance between media money and the regional benefit of staying together as a group in the West, P12 may hang on. UCLA and USC will be taking on a huge burden and risk in two years that money won’t cover up. Klievkoff is going to need an industry changing plan to get P12 decent enough money to make…[Read more]

  • viewership. More off season ramble below :). Excluding the 2020 Covid season, last years CFP games was the 2nd lowest watched since the CFP four team format started in 2015. College football viewership overall continues to decline, especially out West. No surprise the BIG, SEC, and ND viewership drive the market by a long shot, not even close.…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Utah has 2 options in the forum Football 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Problem with any scenario is once the BIG throws out invites to Oregon and UW and others the conference shuffle is over. None of the West Coast schools from a geographical stand point really want to join the BIG unless there is some sort of West Coast/Mtn division. USC can rationalize all they want the kids will get use to it…BS.

    BIG made a…[Read more]

  • P12 and B12 scrambling to add teams is nothing more than rearranging deck furniture on the Titanic.

    It’s all about contraction of the highest money generating programs/media markets sharing with only those that bring equal, more, or close to high level revenue. USC and UCLA win or lose are in one of the highest money generating media markets.…[Read more]

  • Trailgoat replied to the topic Conference Expansion in the forum Football 4 months, 1 week ago

    Wild guess (being somewhat facetious), the next conference alignment is decided by money, seems to be already heading that way. The top 20 or so most financially powerful teams (schools only by name) backed by boosters/whoever wants to pay with their bag of money and ego tied to their teams football success create their own gated football…[Read more]
