      watch the play where Gabe Reid gets his first sack early in the 3rd quarter, where Caleb Williams kinda gingerly falls backwards and it looks like Gabe barely hits him –

       

      If you watch closely it kinda looks like Caleb tries to plant and twitch and move away but literally can’t, and as he’s trying to get up on his own he’s struggling, that’s the first indication that his leg is hurt and I honestly think this is the play that exascerbated the injury.

      They seem to equate talent to recruiting rankings and not on the field production. They also see the PAC as inferior. Let them eat crow.

      Bam is older, Pledger was projected late (but he will get picked up UDFA by someone), Ford I’m not sure I thought he was worth a 5-6 round pick, Tafua and Covey are too small and Fotheringham has the size/blocking but not the stats.

      Not entirely unexpected.

      It is always amazing to see no-name guys from college be successful in the NFL and vice-versa so we’ve known for a while that they look at different things than we do.

      Like, how many draft boards was Tim Patrick on? He went UDFA, waived, and now he’s a starter. NFL does NFL things, idk.

      I told you guys like a month ago that Tafua and Covey were not going to get drafted. They are too small/niche for their positions and size/measurables is king in the NFL. If we are lucky, and I mean really lucky, neither will have signed with an agent and could be welcomed back at the U – but I honestly believe that even with another year they won’t be able to improve their stock and should just sign on as a UDFA somewhere.

      I don’t think it’s wrong to pay tribute, and I think the helmets look awesome.

      That said, I can’t imagine being Bernard, who was there, looking to my left or right to get the protection call from my QB and see my dead best friends face on his helmet. Will he get overwhelmed with emotion? Freeze? Who knows. 

       

      I’m old enough to have had to bury family and friends, and I cannot imagine what these guys are going through. But to have to relive it? That’s harder.

      I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t believe Tafua or Covey will get drafted. Not because of ability but they just haven’t stood out to scouts the way we would have liked. I’m fairly certain they will both get offered FA contracts the day after the draft though and they’ll just have to make the most of their opportunities.

      He used to post like 6-7 times after a game with stats, always used the #utes tags.

      He’s a hype man, he loves every single pac program. The smartest thing he’s said lately is that USC still has to prove they’re on Utah’s level, even after the Lincoln Riley parade of praise.
