    This recruiting class is going to be a really good one for us.

    Fischer legit held on that play. My issue is consistency. The Steelers got away with holding all night.

    Alex will take a lot of the blame, but WRs dropping balls and untimely penalties undid KC.

    The hold on Fisher on the 2-point conversion was the right call according to the rules...

    but that kind of contact happened all game by both teams. Interesting that the officials finally found their flags when the game was on the line.

    Don't get me wrong.. there is plenty of blame to put on the Chiefs' offense. But what really hurts is the fact that the entire Steelers running game is predicated on holding and tackling defenders. If officials decide to keep up those no-calls on them, it will be virtually impossible for the Steelers not to win the SB.

    That is completely untrue.

    Joe Williams was a 2 star JC recruit according to both Rivals and Scout, and he turned out to be a huge get that just saved our season.

    Current Ute commit Jordan Agasiva is a 3 star JC recruit on both Rivals and Scout and he has legit, committable offers from Auburn, TCU, North Carolina, OrSU, WSU, Texas Tech, Louisville, Kansas State, and more.

    Kaelin Clay was rated 3 stars coming out of JC by both Rivals and Scout. He was a stud at Utah and has spent the last two years cashing NFL checks.

    There are a ton more examples I could give, especially if we looked at 2 and 3 star JC recruits that went to other programs and dominated en route to the NFL, but I'm not going to belabor the point. Every year there is high major JC talent that doesn't get the coveted 4 or 5 star rating.

    Just like HS recruiting, the 4 and 5 star guys are more likely to pan out than the 3 star guys, but stars don't write the story. Looking at a player's offer sheet is usually the best predictor, IMO. Rivals had Troy Williams at 4 stars coming out of JC, but his only other offer was UAB.

    With that commit, Utah's average star rating on scout is 3.33, #23 in the country. If they can fill out this years class with the same caliber of players they have gotten to this point, could very well be one of their best ever classes.

    This Chiefs game is excruciating. Nothing is clicking for them on offense...

    and so many drops, damn. Either way I think it's going to come right down to the wire.

    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
