    Forgone conclusion

    Baker Mayfield is winning the Heisman, hands down. Kid can ball out. I wasn’t a fan of his behavior in the Kansas game, but it seems like his benching and losing his captainship for a game have hopefully humbled him a bit.

    The same traits that people criticize Mayfield for (c**ky, arrogant, provocative) are the same traits that make him great as a player.

     

  • EagleMountainUte

    He kind of reminds me of a douchey Tim Tebow. 

  • crazyute

    He reminds me a lot of Brett Favre

  • Anyone watching TCU v Oklahoma?

    I seriously don’t know what holding is anymore. Did they change that rule this year and focus all of the training on calling targeting. 

  • SalUteopia

    Yep, terrible job by the refs. TCU still hanging in there. I want OU to lose, but that will put Bama in the playoffs. I’m torn.

    • KiYi-Ute

      Exactly. I have to root for chalk at this point. Screw Bama. 

      • EagleMountainUte

        Mayfield is pretty good first play from half bam.

        Game over TCU defense stayed in the locker room at half. 

      • SalUteopia

        Now if Wiscky can win, bye bye Bama! Hopefully.

    Drops 41 took over the game after Anthony Davis got hurt.  

    Plus this dunk from the other night was pretty sweet:

    How is USC out of the playoff discussion????

    USC can beat any team this time of the season. Anyone who argues this needs to step away or buy and watch the whole 1970s Hawaii Five-0 all episodes. 

    Good Lord. It is time for all of us to step away if USC isn’t even talked about or discussed in the playoff. 

  • EagleMountainUte

    Are they 100% healthy now?  The embarassed Stanford early in the season as well.  

  • Utahute72

    East Coast bias.

    • ladyinred

      Right. And it’s even more blatant when even U$C can’t get in. The 4 team playoff system is a joke.

  • Utah

    There is no argument to put tOSU in over them. 

  • TexanUte

    Hawaii Five-O Perhaps the greatest theme song in television history? At least it makes the 4 song playoff

  • UteFanatic

    Getting blown out by Notre Dame did not help their chances.  That game was ugly.

    • Johnny
      1

      At least Notre Dame was formidable at some point. Ohio State getting love and they were creamed by Iowa.

      We need at least an 8 team playoff. I’m tired of people’s opinions. 

      • UteFanatic

        USC and tOSU are only separated by two spots in the CFB rankings.  I’d say at this point they are both getting consideration. 

        Problem for USC and tOSU is they both have two losses and getting into the playoff with two losses is difficult for anyone. Auburn has an argument as a two loss team because they beat two other top teams this season (Alabama and Georgia).

        • EagleMountainUte
          1

          USC didn’t play a s**tty team all season though. Scheduling an fcs should be like .5 in the loss column.

          • UteFanatic

            Didn’t USC play Cal and Oregon State this year?

            • EagleMountainUte
              2

              Not FCS schools. Cal is better than their record indicates as well. Auburn beat Mercer and might Georgia Southern. I am sick of the propping up of SEC when they schedule two byes a year. 

      • Utah

        Adding more teams won’t change anything. All it does is move the argument down the rankings and let’s a potential non deserving team (like a G5) in. 

        • Johnny
          2

          Bottom line, all “P5” leagues should have their conference champs in the playoffs. Opinions are getting tiresome. Way too much $$$ at stake.

          • EagleMountainUte
            3

            Yes every P5 champion is in. Then add a sixth from the highest ranked G5 champion. Problem solved.

    Utah Volleyball

    Utah beat Purdue 3-1 tonight and advances to Sweet 16 next weekend. The Utes won the first two sets, but then got absolutely destroyed in the 3rd set. Utes trailed for most of the 4th set, got down to 16-20, but had an exciting comeback and finish with a 27-25 win.

    And for those who didn’t heed my advice and go to the match… Technical difficulties in the fourth match. I was unable to see the end. It cut out with both teams around 7 points. 

    But SWEET 16 BABY!!!!! I think they’re playing Texas, could it be foreshadowing things to come????

    3 star Delon Hurt Commits to Utah

    6′ receiver. That’s good height for a future corner. 

    • Utah
      2

      He is a 3 star or 4 star guy depending on what service you fancy. 

      He was recruited to be a DB. He looks like the prototypical Scalley Safety. Big, fast and strong. 

      • FtheY
        1

        Utah – was he really? I know nothing about the kid, I was just being funny. Sounds like a decent pick up for us. 

        The recruiting piece is tough. I hope we can start getting some more of these guys to commit, our numbers look super light. I know this worked out for us last year and is the strategy going forward, but man it feels like a risky proposition at times. 

        • RiseasUtes
          1

          He was a 4* to start the high school season and has now been lowered to a 3*.  We beat out Colorado, BYU, and Washington St. to get him.  I think the potential is there, but needs more coaching and time to realize that potential.  He should be a good player down the road, but probably wont see a lot of time for a few years.

          • EagleMountainUte

            Does Sitake just offer any kid Utah does?

            • RiseasUtes
              2

              No, we offer every player BYU offers, just ask their fans.

    Or safety. A Scalley find.

    He better have a chip on his shoulder with high ambitions. Cause that’s how we roll at the University of Utah. Go big or go home, baby.
