  • Right, have to believe that the first game to get cancelled would be the last game, but it could be circumstantial as well.

  • What do you think of our last 5 games? Tough to say the least, but more of them at home. Eagle Mountain makes a good point even without fans, playing SC at home in November is a U advantage that the league has typically subjected UCLA to, but never USC.

  • Any indication with this release as to why the shuffle of the original schedule for example Colorado in week 2? Also, where are the bye weeks?

  • IMO- All of the backs are still unproven. For me Wilmore has to prove he can run between the tackles, he didn’t do it well last year. Brumfield needs to prove he can break a big play, that he’s more than a short yardage back. I think it will take several games before the long term RB1 breaks out and wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Micah Bernard.

    Dresden and MFaulk, both rational and objective perspectives and comments. However, I don’t think this approach applies to 4* recruits targeted by Utah. I believe barring behavioral issues that might pop up during due diligence, we’ll take any 4* talent that we offer and begin the process with…just one fan’s 2 cent opinion.

    Racist outrage? Is that what emanated from my post? Because I’m blind with rage I will need you to walk me through how you reached that conclusion.

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Will Latu status? in the forum Football 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    I appreciate all that OnlyU brings to this board and don’t mean to bite the hand the feeds, but it doesn’t make sense to me. A week ago we’re in Latu’s final two and now we’re moving on from him because of fit? We find fits for talented players all over the field. This development coincides with the Scalley news. To me, it looks like Latu is…[Read more]

  • If and whenever it happens…is Alex Jensen gettable?  If not or you prefer someone else who would it be and why?

  • No thanks. I thought Sewell was out of position and/or couldn’t tackle in the 2 games he played. A couple more guys that might be in the mix; Mataafa was a good recruit a couple years back and Fotu from this year’s class.

    Would you have considered Moss a big loss if he had transferred after his low use Freshman year? After Moss, DHC was next most productive with his touches last year. I believe in science. As long as the sample size is adequate, stats and metrics can be predictors and translators of success.

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rumor in the forum Football 6 months, 1 week ago

    DHC converted to LDS Church. He knows coaches at both schools. Would be a big upgrade at either school, big loss for us. Wish him the best of true, don’t want him going south and playing against us.

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rumor in the forum Football 6 months, 1 week ago

    If it’s DHC it would hurt. IMO he is our best returning RB and a playmaker.

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rebuild in the forum Football 7 months ago

    Two things: 1) There are those here and in the local media that believe he was offered the starting job to come here and that by virtue of being 4• and an SEC QB that he is going to put up numbers. 2) Don’t know what you’ve been watching the last 2 years, but the “throw” game has evolved beyond game management. It’s not air raid, but it’s not w…[Read more]

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Utah 2020 Offense/ST in the forum Football 7 months ago

    IMO – DHC is our best back, playmaker, too bad he dropped that pass in bowl game could have gone to the house.

    Want to see Thompson and Dixon get more reps, need to do a better job of getting the ball to our playmakers. Don’t like our democratic WR rotation. Watch Donte Banton at WR, could be good.

    What do we know about Thomas Yassmin’s development?

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rebuild in the forum Football 7 months ago

    Took another look at Bentley’s stats. Definitely not great, I’m not sure they’re good…career to date has averaged a pick per game, only 7-8 yards per completion, and a declining year over year completion % that is now down around 60%. Unless I’m mistaken his QBR at around 130 to 140 is good. Bentley looks to be a solid producer and potential…[Read more]

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rebuild in the forum Football 7 months ago

    Are Bentley’s stats so good that it’s a BIG assumption that Rising may be more talented?Ahem, no. Yes, there is historical data/stats for Bentley and none for Rising…you got me there, but are Bentley’s stats compelling enough to not look behind door number two? They’re not.

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Rebuild in the forum Football 7 months ago

    Tie goes to the younger, more talented player. You put off Rising for another year and he’ll go into his junior year with zero experience. How is that good for 2021 when your other young players have gained experience and are ready for next step…And you’re inexperienced at your most critical position? Think 2021-2022 when looking at next…[Read more]

  • Yergensen replied to the topic Current 2020 Defense in the forum Football 7 months, 1 week ago

    This is my fan evaluation which hasn’t yet been sought out by the coaching staff, but I keep expecting a phone call any day. So, take it for what it’s worth.

    Our freshmen DE will play and be in the two deep, one of them may be starting by end of year. Tafua cannot get to the QB, 3 sacks in two years playing on an all time great D line…I…[Read more]

  • I may have not been clear. I’m saying Hurts and Bentley = known commodity, not Hurts = Bentley. While I think your assessment of Hurts as elite is debateable (not elite thrower with either lazy or poor footwork) I don’t think his talent compared to Bentley’s is debateable Hurts > Bentley.

  • Our receivers in general are underutilized for multiple reasons. We’re run first. We utilize TE and have a great one in Kuithe. Our receiver rotation is large for reasons I don’t understand. Development, if you gauge based on NFL promotion, is below average for WR (last starter was Steve Sr?). Quarterbacking has been an issue as well. Then…[Read more]
