    GameDay is coming to Salt Lake!

  • RedLine

    Hell to the yes!!! This is so great news for the Utes!

  • FormerUteSax

    Thank god the focus won’t be on the pants of the opposing coach. No Harbus, no “Harbuddies”

      I just hope that some Ute fans don’t embarrass us again. The sign last year saying “Sam Ponder belongs in the kitchen” was despicable.

      Sam Ponder is great at what she does and didn’t deserve that at all. This state is already known for its weird patriarchal culture, so I hated seeing s**t like that. It does us no favors in elevating the profile of our state.

    There was one that said “If Marshawn Lynch can get into Cal, than (sic) anyone can”. It’s stupid to knock Cal’s academics in the first place, then you can’t even spell it correctly? I facepalmed so hard.

    I don’t have the energy for these sort of things anymore (3 year old twins make it rather difficult), but I’m thrilled for those who do. It always looks like a great time.

      I hear ya man, I have 2-year old twins and a pregnant wife. It’s brutal right now.

      • 1

        It’s not an issue of energy, it’s time.

        I’m 54 and I’d get hard in a nanosecond for Sam Ponder. But I’m in SoCal and my bro’s tix got sold.

  • Bob

    What’s our record with Gameday games? Bad memories I’m trying to suppress is starting to bubble up….

    • SkinyUte

      2-1. Thumped BYU, got thumped by TCU (still subconsciously twitch when I see a camo jersey), and beat Cal.

      • UteFanatic

        It’s pretty awesome that this will be the 4th GameDay in SLC. How many other programs can claim that?

  • uteman12

    I assume free parking again at the Merrill Engineering Building?

  • leftyjace

    I’m so excited for this! I think I’ll be able to get my son to go with me this time. Two years in a row… HOW OFTEN DOES THAT HAPPEN???? 🙂

  • Tacoma Ute

    This has to be great for recruiting, provided we don’t embarrass ourselves on the field or with offensive signs.

    Just popped in here for the first time in a while.

    Love what you’ve done with the place! The updated format is very easy to read and use on the phone.

    Anyway, go Utes!

    Thanks for stopping by. Don’t be a stranger. The water is warm, and RED here.

    I’m kind of hoping utefans.net just dies forever and this site replaces it.

      I can’t control what other sites do, just what happens here. I’m working it hard and trying to make it better and better.  Suggestions are welcomed.

      • Virginia Ute

        I couldn’t stick here before because I’ve grown so used to the UFN or CB format with the continuous feed.  Now that I can have that, I will try to come around more (for better or worse, haha).

      • hnoseguard

        Are we seeing a huge influx of new members since UFN s**t the bed?

          Ya WebMonkey is in Jail 🙁

          • SkinyUte

            Seriously? That sucks…hope he can manage to get his sh*t together.

          • hnoseguard

            Jeez, I just checked the county inmate lookup and you’re right. That’s a lot of charges in the last 2 months for intoxication 🙁

            • Tony

              Oh my.  That’s terrible.  He has some demons I hope he is able to overcome. 

          • Virginia Ute

            Is that why the site has been down the past few days?  Or is it just my computer/internet?

            • hnoseguard
              1

              Not an issue with your computer, the site’s down because the hosting bill / domain renewal fee hasn’t been paid.

              • Virginia Ute

                So that’s probably the end of it then. Kinda sad. End of an era. 

        • Utah

          It’s tough to say. This place is pretty active on game day. The proof in the pudding will come during the week. 

  • rbmw263

    Relatively new site by internet standards. Site has come a long way and is improving regularly.

    As far as injuries go, this season reminds me a lot of 2013,

    but the results are quite the opposite. You can tell how far the program has come by how we have competed even with devastating injuries. We have built depth across the board at all positions, and it shows when we can still produce while down so many players. Whitt is doing a great job building the program for the future.

    Hey Bob

    I wasn’t able to record the game.  I hope you don’t mind me clipping from your work.  Can’t wait to download it.

    My vote for Pick'em tie-breaker winners.

    SteelUte, then UtesRock.

    Both picked Utah with 45, SteelUte had UCLA with more points. Someone picked Utah with 63, but I think… perhaps they were hitting the crack pipe. Or were the rest of us??? Most had the Utes in the upper 20s.

  • Tony

    I don’t even remember what I picked.

  • Tony

    On some of my free time, which I have none of, I’ve been programming a predict the score contest.  The way the points will work is something like this:

    -5 Points for picking the winner

    1 point for each point in differential for each team.  

    Lower scores are better.

    So say someone picked Utah over UCLA 50-40.  The final score was 52-45.

    -5 points for picking the winner.

    Utah scored 52 and they picked 50, differential of 2

    UCLA scored 45 and they picked 40, differential of 5

    -5 + 2 + 5 = 2 points.

    is coach Scally a mediocre DC? 5 down lineman and a rusher can’t get a sack.

    they burned us every time we blitzed, like they knew a exactly when Scalley would blitz.

  • Tony

    Not only that, we knew they were going to throw 95% of the time. I WANT to like Morgan, but so far I haven’t been super impressed. Then again, we have a lot of dinged up players.

    He’s a yuuuge step down from Peace.  Dr. Chris Hill needs to loo for a  real P5 replacement

  • PDXUteFan

    He really really is, rushing on 3rd down when you know they’re going to throw and you’re not getting pressure anyways is idiotic, giving up big play after big play when you know exactly what they are going to do and repeatedly doing the same thing is the definition of insanity. 

  • Utahute72

    You judge a DC by whether or not he gets players in a position to make the play. How many times today were players in a position to make the play and whiffed?

    • Tony
      2

      Should the DC also teach the players how to tackle, and not whiff?

      • Utahute72

        Fundamentals is the responsibility of the position coach.

  • Junior Ute

    He is not good and I think Kyle knows it. 

  • Utahute72

    So let me get this straight. The defense has been saving our bacon all year, but a less than stellar game against a team with the talent they have at a receiver corps, missing two of the keystones of the defense and suddenly he’s a bad coach.

    • Tony

      I added the injury comment to my reply to give myself an “out.” 

      • Utahute72

        Nice out, Tony.

  • rbmw263

    Our D line had some hurries but Faful had a TON of time all night. Seemed like even when we brought 6+ we didnt even really come close to getting home. They were ready for all of our blitzes and their exact schemes. Their gameplan for our zone defense was also nails. They picked it apart. 

     

    You certainly expect some growing pains with Scalley. I think he will be good in the long run. Got a great mentor in Whitt. But he needs experience.

  • UteThunder

    We had 4 INTs and a fumble recovery today, and our defense has only allowed an average of 18 ppg before today . . . and you are questioning the DC?

    Ok . . . . 

  • Utahute72

    Yea, I thought we were done when UCLA went on that three score run, but Scalley adjusted the defense and slowed them down enough. Yes he is young and should bet better. It’s interesting to see a lot of the same comments about Scalley we were hearing about Johnson. I guess we only need to hire AARP guys, I’ll fill out my resume.

  • Just stop. 

  • FormerUteSax

    They had less than 50 rushing yards. When they throw the ball 100 times thay will get some yards. I was more concerned with the open field tackling which seems to be getting worse

  • Utemachine

    I love Kyle and want him at Utah forever but my biggest problem are his hires. He hires like we’re a Big Sky school. We’re freaking PAC 12 and I’m sure there is a stack a yard tall of talented Offensive and Defensive coordinators who’d love to come here. But we end up with, well you get my point. Agree with a statement made above. Hill needs to recognize the overt weakness and assist with his hiring.

    That is Whitts job and call

    I have 2 thoughts on this.

    If we we get a really awesome and well known coordinator, we probably lose him to a head coaching position after the season. Do we really want to start each season with a new DC?

    If Hill takes away Whitt’s freedom to hire whoever he wants, we probably lose Whitt.

    If this reactionary type of thinking is typical of UteHub, I will be getting plenty of use for the ignore button. Either that or spending my time at UteNation.

    Uintas, maybe your intolerance of fan reactions makes you ill-suited for fan sites in general. These forums are typically built for the reaction of a fan’s thoughts or “Reactionary Type Thinking” as you have coined it.

  • Dhisatake

    Wow… some serious knee jerk and uninformed opinions being tossed around.

    I hope we can keep it civil here. I vow to do my part.

    The best story in sports right now is Joe Williams

    We could easily be on a 2 game losing streak without him, and we definitely dont win today

    Yeah, from retired to increasing his NFL stock in just two weeks. It would make a great movie. I’d watch it.
