    Never be surprised when a shopkeeper tries to sell you what he has on his shelves.


    If he was on the hill Gary would be talking about how Salt Lake City has the advantages of a big city while retaining "that small town feel."

    Recruiting talk...

    If TW was a redshirt he'd be the second coming of Tom Brady.

    I feel like I'm one of a small camp with this opinion, but I think our best shot of success next year...

    Is to build the offense around TW. And give a ton of snaps to his heir in preparation for 2016.

    If Travis wants out, I guess there's nothing the coaches can do about it now, but if he wants to stay, then make a go of it. I just can't imagine that an offense catered to his strengths would be less effective than starting over with an underclassmen.

    If we miss a bowl again next year (or even significantly step back, like a 6-6 record and losing conference record), it will undo almost all of the gains we made this year. So, I'll say this: whatever needs to be done next year to get us at least eight wins needs to happen. I think that means putting the offense in the hands of our senior who's been starting games for three years.

    He may not be Kessler or Hundley, but I've followed Ute football since the mid-80's, and Wilson is no worse than our fourth best QB in that time. Maybe third. He's a capable QB, and no one behind him will exceed what he can give us next year, IMO.

    Gary is talking to recruits... OF COURSE HE WILL SPIN HIS ANGLE!!!!

    If Utah was his job he would be all over the benefits of the mountains, the yada, yada, yada. Quit being so sensitive about it.

    Coaches play their angle ALL the time.

    I can't speak to the local talent issue since I live 500 miles away but I do contend that comparing a 15 man roster with a football roster is unfair.

    I don't have a problem with transfer talent either. If you choose to see a difference enjoy your anxiety.

    An engineer crosses a road when a frog calls out to him, If you kiss me, Ill turn into a beautiful princess.

    He bends over, picks up the frog and puts it in his pocket.

    The frog speaks up again and says, If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week.

    The engineer takes the frog out of his pocket, smiles at it and returns it to the pocket.

    The frog then cries out, If you kiss me and turn me back, Ill do whatever you say!

    Again the engineer takes the frog out, smiles at it and puts it back into his pocket.

    Finally, the frog asks, What is the matter? Ive told you Im a beautiful princess, Ill stay with you for a month and do whatever you say. What more do you want?

    The engineer says, Look, Im an engineer. I dont have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now thats cool!

    In case you missed it, Utah has two of the seven under the radar sleepers in recruiting this year (according to ESPN).

    That's how we will have to do it in football. We will never outdraw places like USC, UCLA or Oregon.

    Someone said Wilson regressed under DC. I disagree.

    by Ute2004
    2014-12-18 10:09:09

    Let's look at Wilson's career. I'll put his freshman stats, then sophomore, then junior.
    5 wins to 5 wins to 7 wins
    62% comp to 56% comp to 60%
    7 TD's to 16 TD's to 17 TD's
    6 INT's to 16 INT's to 4 INT's
    122.2 rating to 129.7 rating to 135.9
    42 raw QBR to 41 raw QBR to 53
    45.9 adj QBR to 56.1 to 59.5

    Wilson did not regress. He has gotten better every year. My disappointment is that he didn't take the jump you'd think he'd take coming in as a third year starter.

    That being said, he took a bigger jump under DC than he did under BJ.
