    Two extra tickets for Saturday

    I have two extra tickets for Saturday. Face value $47/ticket

  • SteelUte

    Are you asking face value for them? 

    Where are your seats?



    • KJU

      Yes face value. W09 row 50 on the goal line

  • BattleGroundUte

    Helmet design

  • leftyjace

    This gives me all the feels.
    That is SO yummy. I love that helmet design.
    Hell, I’m good with using it on more than the Ute Proud game.
    That is just plain ole’ bad ass.

    • BattleGroundUte

      I got an email on some of the new apparel as well. Pretty sick red UA shirt with the same design.

    I like it! Always wanted to do something like these though likely won’t happen.

      Yeah that one is sure to ruffle the feathers of some overly sensitive jackass who doesn’t understand this is to honor the Ute tribe, not mock it.

      • Hammer

        Our state name “Utah” is a Ute Indian name meaning “People of the Mountains”. We are honoring the Ute Tribe and recognizing our whole entire state and all its people….maybe the head dress is too much of a religions symbol, but I’ve heard some Native Americans say they wish we would wear it and other stuff across the whole stadium.

    • Ute Bc

      Given the University has come out with videos asking fans not to wear headdress gear, I’ll assume this never sees the light of day…

      • TexUte

        Yeah, I’m aware it will never happen , but they still look pretty great. I’m glad that we do all that we do to support the tribe. The state is named for them and im glad the university is too.

  • highlandute7

    I would prefer to see more red and less black.

  • COFfrom83

    Like it. much better than just a block U or even interlocking block Us, and I still like the drum and feather

    Good article

    Utah football notes: Chase Hansen’s status questionable.

    Great article by Furlong, would have been hard for me to play and worry about that hurricane.


    Utes start 2-0

    The Utes open the season 2-0 including their seventh straight win over byu. But it hasn’t been all roses and the Utes continue to hurt themselves with penalties. The guys offer their thoughts on the team after the first game and what changes they would like to see.

    New Episode


    I have two tickets available for the San Jose game.

    Anyone interested?


  • Hammer

    Probably already gone but I sent you BM

    • RavenousUte

      That’s mean sending a fellow Ute a bowel movement.

      • Wilson's Mustache

        At least we’ve now narrowed down our suspects in the Great Fresno State BM of 2014

        • Tony

          Oh man I walked right by that and almost through it. That was awful. I feel sorry for whoever had to do that.

  • Utahute72

    At my age it’s the smallest kindnesses that are appreciated.

  • PlainsUte

    Horse collar ot no?

    New definition of horse collar includes tackling by grabbing the jersey in the “nameplate area”.   So is this the nameplate area or not.  In subsequent images the jersey stretches so the top of the shoulder pad is exposed and it looks like he’s grabbing the top of the shirt sleeve but that seems to be because of the stretching and twisting of the jersey toward McCormick’s right shoulder.


    Horse Collar BYU vs Utah

  • Tony

    Red goggles: yes
    Blue goggles: no

  • Utah

    I think that he lets go it’s not a horse collar. 

  • Utahute72

    Yea, I didn’t see that as a horse collar. But I also agreed that they got the sack/fumble call right, so what do I know.

  • Grimmetal

    If I recall correctly, he wasn’t brought down to the ground with the move. Did it contribute to him losing the ball? Possibly. Just feels like a grey area. If the sides were switched, I probably wouldn’t call it one.

    The BYU player grabbed him up by the shoulder and kind of pulled him back, let go and then went low to finish the tackle.

  • BattleGroundUte

    Absolutely PAC12 refs are idiots. But live I didn’t think so.

    i noticed the PAC said they made an error in the ucla game yet never corrected the error on Utah’s overturned touchdown. 

  • dwainegf

    It is a horse collar violation. The refs missed the call. Having said that, there is no way to get every call correct. However, I think the PAC 12 refs are possibly the worst in the country. Too many missed calls. Too many marginal calls. Too many picked up flags. Having a ref pick up a flag causes me to wonder why the flag was thrown to begin with. If the ref is not 100% certain on the call, the flag should stay in his/her pocket. I would love to watch a game and not notice the refs at all. No controversial calls, no overturned calls, no blatantly missed calls…..

    • BattleGroundUte

      That BYU game went on forever. It felt like every other play was a review and a little conference between what the call was. Disrupted Utah’s offensive rhythm a lot. 

  • TheJuggernaut

    It’s not a horse collar, the no call was correct. While he does grab the jersey in the nameplate area, he lets go, and McCormick falls forward. The rule states you must grab the player AND immediately pull the player down. The rule was put in place to prevent knee and ankle injuries that were occurring when players were being pulled down from behind. Here’s the wording of the rule:

    ARTICLE 15. All players are prohibited from grabbing the inside back collar
    of the shoulder pads or jersey, or the inside collar of the side of the
    shoulder pads or jersey, and immediately pulling the ball carrier down.
