    NFL players from Utah Schools

    Sometimes, when I run out of posts here, I wander over to Cougarboard. Sometimes I am amazed at how many BYU fans can't spell the name of their home state and sometimes by how quickly they lost the faith in their program. Late last nigth I came across this thread about recruiting. To save you the effort of reading the thread, someone proposed that BYU was getting whipped in the recruiting game. He posted ratings from Scout and Rivals to show how BYU & Utah compared. One of our own suggested they look at the other end of the funnel to look at how many players were landing in the NFL, suggesting that might be a better indicator of how well the two schools were doing. Cougarboard, of course, dismissed his idea but I had my interest piqued. I sliced and diced the data a few ways before I came up with the idea of charting active players since the turn of the century. I was surprised by some of the results but in the end the NFL data supports the idea that Utah is doing a better job recruiting than BYU or USU. Of course, we knew that already.

    Why I think we beat Arizona, short and simple. We play a control style game, Arizona plays outta control.

    Solomon does not throw the ball away ... ever. He will sit in the pocket and wait. There is not a pass he thinks he cannot make. He has confidence in his arm and skill to scramble. He will throw the ball, double, triple coverage, doesn't matter, he's launching it.

    This style can work well, huge pass plays when the play is breaking down.

    But here's where it can hurt them. There are more bad passes than good passes.

    Remember all the passes that bounced off our receivers last year? Well, this year it's Arizona.

    He forces throws all over the field.

    There are A LOT of turnover opportunities for our defense.

    Arizona is #3 in the Pac for pass attempts (445) pass yards (3067) and passing average (306.7).

    Arizona is last in the league in completion percentage 57.8.

    Defensively, their outta control style is to give up the tackle for an opportunity to strip the ball.

    Arizona will allow the running back to go 8 yards as long as they have a few chances to strip the ball. Strip first, tackle later.

    They are +7 in turnovers, tied for 4th in the league.

    FYI, we are +6 for 6th in the league.

    Arizona has gained 10 fumbles (aggressive stripping) 3rd in the league.

    I think our control style play wins out tomorrow, comfortably. Yes, that's right, a comfortable home win tomorrow. Hard to believe, but that's what I think.

    Go Utes!

    Recall the past games against AZ on KALL 700. I grew up listening to Bill and I sure miss the way he called games.

    Just your neighborhood Coug swinging by to let you know I'll be watching most of your game since ours will be over in the first quarter.

    Good luck! And here's hoping for no injuries.

    I think you're being far too pessimistic.

    The Cougs and the Sun Devils are still tied 0-0 with 2/3 of the 1st Quarter played.

    Just watched another Arizona game, this time against CU. I didn't pay attention to this game at the time it was played (two weeks ago) the final score is deceiving. If you are worried about another nail biter today, don't be. We are kicking the

    $#!+ out of AZ today. Anyway, back to AZ vs CU.

    AZ scored 28 points off of CU turnovers. A scoop and score and three short fields. CU was in this game up until the 4th turnover, which was another short field which lead to an AZ TD and Liufau was knocked out of the game.

    Prior to this play, it was CU 20 AZ 24 with about 11 minutes left in the game.

    CU gave up after this play, Liufau out and down by 11 on the road, CU had no chance and they knew it.

    AZ is not playing good ball. They got a ton of help from CU to get the win at home and Washington had them beaten at home last week if it weren't for Chris Peterson's coaching gaff.

    AZ is sloppy. They don't protect the ball, can't punt worth a $#!+ an make mistakes.

    We are going to eat this team alive.

    For more anti AZ propaganda, I have another post a few threads below.
