    Riding Trax to the game.

    Is Trax free to the game if you have a ticket ?

  • Utahute72

    It is free.  You used to just use your ticket, but I thought I saw something where you had to go on the Utah site a print a chit, but it could have just been for a specific game.  Check on the Utah Utes site game notes they should tell you.

  • PlainsUte
  • Warrior Ute

    It looks like your game ticket works as your fare all day.

    I have ridden trax most games I go to.

    Parking up by the U is just so annoying usually.

  • Torg

    Honestly, though it’s free to those with tickets…. they’ve never even checked anyone. They see a massive amount of people wearing red so they dont do any checks.

  • COFfrom83

    you don’t want to be the one they check without a ticket. the fine’s a couple hundred bucks if I understand correctly

  • Thlete

    Only charge of admission to Trax on gameday is your personal space. We pack in like sardines.

    Utes got Draymond Green 2.0?

    I was watching video of Utes recruit Donnie Tillman. His body type and game reminds me of Draymond Green. Got a long way to go, of course. But he looks like he’ll be ready to bang in the paint as a freshman.

    Draymond is an incredibly unique player who’s more than an undersized banger

    Lineman stuff Hans is great at explaining all of it.

     

    Wish he would get set up with some editing equipment for better video quality though.

    I love the last line… “Takes him down, let’s him know ‘I just ate your lunch…see you next play”. Awesome!

    These weekly game film breakdowns by Hans are really great; perhaps one of the highlights of my week (in terms of Ute fandom). It is a nice look into how a coach or player sees the game, versus most casual fans. Kudos to Hans for taking the time do make these videos.

      Watch that Huntley TD again.  Moss is the only one on the wrong page.  I believe Huntley is covering for him again.  Uhatafe clears all of that real estate and it would have allowed Moss to walk in if he went to the right.  

      • jamarcus24

        No, it’s Huntley who went the wrong way.  The play is set up to have Kaufusi be the guy Huntley needs to read.  Uhatafe and Barton scoop up to the backers, the TE (was that Siale?) pulls across the formation from the right to get out in front of Huntley if Kaufusi takes Moss and Huntley has to pull it and run around the end.  From the way the nose guard was able to get across Lo’s face and into the gap, Huntley probably would have pulled it and ran with it anyway.

    He probably can’t directly copy the feed due to copyright issues.

      That should make no difference. Further, he would be firmly within fair use, in my mind, since his work is transformative as commentary and criticism.

  • SkinyUte

    I love these. As someone who never played the game, the line stuff is always just a jumble to me. I know there’s stuff going on, but until someone points it out like this, I can never really figure it out. Hans does a really good job breaking it down.

  • After watching a couple of videos from last season some thoughts.

    2016 Utes vs San Jose St. Offensively Utah’s wideouts show so much improvement from last season. Not just the Carrington factor but the routes are crisp and very good. Watching also makes me realize Utah needs more of a rushing attack. DHC needs to step up because I am not convinced on Moss or McCormick. I was huge on Moss last season but I see a lot of hesitation in his step a little too much patience.

    Defensively I wonder if Utah can get that much pressure this season. Not worried about San Jose’s offense at all but it was cool to watch ten sacks. Hunter Dimick just so damn good.

    Unless you are dating Williams I don’t see how you can think he is better than Huntley. The dynamic play of Huntley is apparent to me. Just measuring where Williams was last year in Week three vs what I have seen from Huntley so far.

    • ladyinred

      For the record I am dating neither Williams nor Moss (my husband wouldn’t like that I’m thinking), but I would say:

       

      We have better WR’s and so far it looks like a better system than last year, so I would at least like to see Williams get quality minutes this year to show what he can do in these improved conditions. I do agree with you though that Huntley looks great.

       

      RE: Moss. Tds does actually have a good DL. It’s not too terribly surprising they wanted to shut down the run. I am not mad at him for the Cal incident. It was the refs who jobbed us and we didn’t get the TO required for everyone to be clear. Plus he was a freaking freshman. 

      • Stone

        I don’t really fault Moss for the Cal game either, but not because of the refs screwjob; rather, I blame the coaches for putting Moss, a true frosh, in that situation. Shyne should have been getting those carries at the end of the game. Shyne had been gashing runs that game and was playing in front of his family. Of course, I have no way to prove it, but I am convinced Shyne would have scored if the coaches had put him in the game instead of Moss.

        • Wilson's Mustache
          1

          Shyne would have been in if we had that final timeout 

  • Rick

    I wouldn’t be so hard on Moss.  He had a great game vs. North Dakota and in the game with tds-P they focused solely on Moss in the read option game which is why Huntley got over 100 yards rushing.

    • BattleGroundUte

      I still am a little upset with him going the wrong way against Cal. But this season he again doesn’t seem like he is on the same page as the Oline or QB.

    Speaking of what the best Ute Fan site is…

    I’m about to publish an update (0.0.6) to the Ute Hub iOS and Android apps. If anyone has any last minute bugs or suggestions let me know. I’ve tried to replicate one bug where a user can’t type in the text area in iOS but haven’t been able to replicate that one (anyone want to donate a moderately new iOS device so I can test?).  There is one user (I think @hammer maybe) who has a problem with double posting on the app.  I’m changing what happens after the user hits the submit button in order to hopefully eliminate that possibility.

    New in this version will be dynamic team rosters (meaning I can add new rosters, sports etc here on the www site and they will automagically appear in the app).  Also new alerts in the app to make it clear if the user has logged in.  Also some small bug fixes and under the hood enhancements.

    When you type a long message the Cancel and Submit buttons vanish. On iPhone 6
    It also does it on the App.

    • Tony

      That doesn’t sound like the app. That sounds like the www version. Are you sure you are using the APP?

      • BattleGroundUte

        I did it in both. Tried to post a long reply and the submit button vanished.

      • BattleGroundUte

        Posting this reply from the APP now. I wrote some text and try to scroll up for the Submit button. It won’t let me. I press Done to remove the keyboard. Try to scroll up and the Submit button is gone. I have to press Done then Tap Outside the grey text box which allows me to then see the green button. Yet after doing that I see the green button now. Still having trouble with text not populating in the box again. Requires extra taps etc to sort of snap the code into action if that makes sense.

        • Tony
          I would like to see if I can help you. Is it possible for you to make a video of this so I can see it? All I have to do to scroll when making a new topic or reply is grab any part of the window that is not in the text editor. Also what device are you using?
          • BattleGroundUte

            iPhone 6 Chrome for browser. I have the most recent iOS. 

            As for posting a video I don’t know how to record let me try to post a picture. 

            • Utah

              Same thing happens to me (I use the browser, Safari). 

              Long post, submit vanishes. I cut the text, go into the forum view and paste it there. 

              • Tony

                I’m talking about the app in this thread. I can look at the browser version as it sounds like there might be something to fix there.

                For some clarity… the submit button in the app only appears when the required fields are filled out.  The submit button will only be there when the user can submit.  So the topic title, forum category and text area have content in them.

                Regarding the scrolling some keyboards appear and cover content. All I have to do to scroll when the keyboard is visible, is grab the right side or left side outside of the text box and I can scroll to expose the submit button (which won’t be there if all fields are not filled out).

                So if you guys are still having issues with the app let me know.  We can start a browser discussion too for the www site.

                • BattleGroundUte

                  So I tried to start a New Topic in the App. No submit button and as for being to grab the sides to scroll I can’t do that.

                • Tony

                  Like I said, the submit button will not appear until all required fields are filled out. You have to have the topic title, forum category (as in football), and text in the text area for the submit button to appear. Here I’ve set the app how-to video up to show you.  Check it out and let me know if this helps:

                • Tony

                  I borrowed a friend’s iPhone 5 at the tailgate this weekend and got to test out this issue. Yes you are right. On a screen that small there isn’t much room to grab the sides and scroll. I’ll think about a way of fixing that. I’d have to make more room on the sides which would make the text box smaller.

              • BattleGroundUte
                1

                Try clicking the expand button on the editing features above the text. It has populated the Submit and cancel buttons back for me sometimes. @Utah

  • BattleGroundUte

    I have kept the app but it has some bugs that frustrate me to be honest. The reply thing like I said in that other reply. Also the scroll you slide your finger and it just goes down very little requiring multiple slides. 

    Just first world bitch and moaning Tony you do an awesome job on everything. 
  • TexUte

    Is there a way to post a picture from say your phone photo library or would that be pretty complicated to put into the app?

    • Tony
      1

      Neither the app or the www version of the site currently has an image upload option. Doing so would require me to have tons of more server space to store the images which would be extra $$$.  I know “other” sites have considered adding such a feature for a paid user and I’ve considered that, but not any forums I know if allow users to upload images.  I’m sure there are some somewhere.  So, the option for now is to link to images on other sites like flickr or wherever. 

      • BattleGroundUte

        I got it to work better now. The app is actually better than the browser now except for the short slide when scrolling. 

  • Puget Ute

    On the Android app sometimes links won’t activate. I press the link and it highlights, but won’t activate. 

    This happens most often in the Home mode. Once I get to the forums the links will open normally.
    • Tony
      2

      Yeah this one is a tough one. The way people post links is sometimes messed up and sometimes the different editors (app or www) do different things automatically to try and make the link work. I’m trying to find a more standard way for them all to work across the board, so to speak.

    Whatever you do, don’t get rid of the quick screen shot of the line of scrimmage versus USC.  That picture always gets me going!  Love it as a welcome when opening the app.

    The replies get all out of order in the App something to maybe fix. 

    • Tony

      Replies in the app are sequentially ordered by date/time. I want them ordered like the homepage of the www site, but that’s going to take a while.  It is on the road map.

  • shakeitsugaree

    I would like a method of looking at topics with most recent posts. On the mobile www site, topics with new posts are identified; I don’t see this designation on the app.

    Thanks for all you do, Tony

    • Tony

      YES YES. Definitely. I already have this on my list. There is no infrastructure to support it yet from the makers of the forum software. I’ve been working with them as a volunteer to help develop the other supporting code for the app as it is, and I’ve suggested this to them.  Not sure they’ll implement it, so I may do it myself.  That’s definitely on the road map.
