    #1 this year, #2 last year. Which is why I think people calling for Whit's head are nuts.

    Has he made mistakes? Absolutely. But I don't really see any coach managing this type of transition - SOS, recruiting, financial disadvantages, massive skill gap, QB health, etc., etc. - much better than Whit has.

    I would say it has exactly 0% to do with a recruit being Mormon or non-Mormon, in every single case ever.

    I can't even wrap my head around the argument that local recruits are turning down Utah because they either are or are not LDS. That is an absurd claim from both directions.

    If Utah was coming off ASU's 2013 season - 10 wins, South division champs, and hosting the PAC-12 championship game...

    magically a lot of these recruits leaving the state would want to stay in-state. People that think recruits are leaving primarily because they want to go to college out of state are fooling themselves. They aren't going to Cal or Colorado, both amazing out of state college experiences. It is zero coincidence that every time they give the excuse of wanting to get out of Utah - every single damn time - they leave to go to a program that is winning a lot of games and is expected to do big things.

    Until Utah is winning a lot of games and expected to do big things, the bleeding of local talent will continue. Win a PAC-12 championship and suddenly guys like Osa Masina are talking about how it's always been their dream to play in front of their family at the U.

    the OL stunk last year

    by oc_ute
    2014-07-24 11:36:22

    the jeremiah's really stunk up the place last year. the whole left side got trashed. no qb could have done well. when the OL doesn't perform, routes don't develop, balls are thrown too quickly and they bounce off people cuz they're not ready....

    we would have had half the INT's if the OL had protected better. i truly hope poutassi is quicker, his feet were in cement last year.

    if you get a chance re-watch the usc game. morgan bresnan treated him like a rag doll.

    also, if you saw that pic of the team running up sugarhouse park, that was wilson in the front. he looks totally ripped this year.

    After listening to Whitt yesterday on radio stations all over the west a few things stick out.

    by Ute2004
    2014-07-24 10:47:46

    1 - Whitt says out best unit is our OL. He says Poutasi has dropped 30+ lbs and Poutasi and Salt have changed their bodies from big and soft to muscle. Says they are much quicker.

    2 - Whitt says we have depth. For the first time ever, depth isn't the primary concern. Amazing news. No more walkon QB's.

    3 - one station mentioned Wilson as the starter and Thompson coming in to compete for #2. Whitt didn't correct him. Whitt said that they know what they have in Manning and Schulz and want to see how Thompson fits in with that group. He also said that Wilson's muscle has caught up with his frame. Says Wilson has no more risk of injury than any other player and has come into the fall looking amazing.

    If OL is our strength, and we have depth...wow. We will have a great year. I watch the Utah/Stanford game the other night. I think that is what our offense looks like this year. Fast, stretch the defense from sideline to sideline, then gash them up the middle with Booker. We will be a run heavy team, just fast.

    My concern is that he didn't mention turnovers on offense, obviously this means he isn't taking them seriously.

    by DownhereUte

    If he had mentioned it, then started sobbing, pounded the desk with his fist and threw a chair, then I would believe he was taking it seriously.

    I learned a couple things tonight.

    by jts_ute

    1) CFL is very hard to watch. CFL receivers couldn't catch a cold and the 3 down rule is just not right.

    2) I am desperate for anything even resembling football.
