  • UteThunder replied to the topic Jaylon Johnson #16 in the forum Football 6 days, 15 hours ago

    So you’re saying we routinely lined up an injured, 2nd string, freshman corner on our opponents’ #1 WR? Is that really your position?

    I’m sure Johnson defended the top WR from time to time, in fact I remember him giving up a huge pass play to Pettis on the opening play of the UW game. But there is no way he was covering the #1 WR more often than…[Read more]

    IIRC, Blackmon was routinely matched up with the opponent’s #1 WR while Johnson rarely, if ever, drew that duty. 

    I would argue the ball was thrown Johnson’s way fewer times because QBs will always look to their #1 guy first and it is easier for a CB to lockdown the #2 or worse guy than it is to lockdown the #1 guy.

    Also, according to the team…[Read more]

  • UteThunder replied to the topic Urban Meyer in the forum Football 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    No, I love women and that is why I think it is the right thing for them to do to seek out help and self-advocate if they were ever to be abused. You’re the one who seems to have a problem with me thinking it is wrong for a woman to NOT report her abuse.

    Hahahahahahahahaha!!! Are you kidding me?

    First, is it victim SHAMING or victim BLAMING you are accusing me of?

    Second, you have all the facts in this case? Ha!

    Third, Victim blaming is a devaluing act where the victim of a crime, an accident, or any type of abusive maltreatment is held as wholly or partially responsible for the wrongful…[Read more]

  • UteThunder replied to the topic Urban Meyer in the forum Football 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Sorry, but that isn’t victim blaming. Nowhere did I say it was her fault she was allegedly abused. Shame on you for accusing me of that. 

    As for the role she played in not reporting the abuse she suffered AS AN ADULT, that responsibility falls squarely on her shoulders and it is ridiculous to insinuate that anyone else is responsible for it.

  • UteThunder replied to the topic Urban Meyer in the forum Football 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    So Urban should be fired because of something his wife might have done?

    The bottom line on this case: The victim is an adult. It is her responsibility, and hers alone, to report the abuse. Unless Urban threatened the victim or otherwise prevented her from contacting the police, then he should NOT be fired.   

  • First of all, let me say that if I had my way we would drop BYU from all future schedules, or at the very least, limit games against them to a couple of times each decade.
    Now, having gotten that disclaimer out of the way, I have to say – Utah and Colorado have a distinct scheduling disadvantage compared to the rest of the Pac-12. We are the only…[Read more]

    If you missed this epic comeback from last year, the Pac-12 Football in 60 version is airing on the Pac-12 network right now.

    They are just over half way through the countdown, having released #29 today.

    So far, it is an even split for the lead between Utah, USU, and BYU each with 10 players on the list. Weber State has the other 2.

    Looking at who they have listed for Utah so far, and who is not listed, I’m thinking it is very likely Utah ends up with 25 or 26 players…[Read more]

  • Is @Onlyu really Kyle Whittingham?
    I’m mostly joking here, but dang, this guy has some great inside info.
    I always get excited when I see a post from @Onlyu. 

  • They are obviously still friends and any time I have heard Kyle talk about Kalani as the HC at BYU he mentions something along the lines of ‘Kalani is a great coach and they are going to win a lot of games while he is there.’ Maybe he believes that or maybe it is just PC coach speak. I don’t know.

    Other than Utah’s games, which annual Pac-12 matchups do you always try to watch?
    I like watching just about any Pac-12 matchup, but there are 5 that I go out of my way to try and watch:
    Colorado vs CSU – I’ve been watching this game since the formation of the MWC.

    Why would you assume they beat Utah? I’m always apprehensive about that game, but I would never assume a BYU victory over Utah.

    As for the rest of that schedule, every single one of those games is a game that I would say BYU could lose. At best, they are all toss-ups. Unless they get significantly better in the next two years, I would pick them…[Read more]

    That was fascinating to read. To see in black & white so many things confirmed that were rumors and how instrumental Chris Hill was in getting us into the Pac-12 . . . that man deserves to be memorialized on campus somehow. Name a building after him or build a statue!
