Hi Ho Silver, Away

by UTAH744

The Lone Ranger was ambushed and captured
by a Ute Indian War Party.

The Indian Chief proclaims,

"So, you are the great Lone Ranger"...

"In honor of the Harvest Festival,
YOU will be executed in three days."

"Before I kill you, I grant you three requests"

"What is your FIRST request?'

The Lone Ranger responds,

"I'd like to speak to my horse."

The Chief nods and Silver is brought
before the Lone Ranger who whispers in

Silver's ear, and the horse gallops away.

Later that evening, Silver returns with
a beautiful blonde woman on his back.

As the Indian Chief watches,
the blonde enters the Lone Ranger's tent

and spends the night.

The next morning the Indian Chief admits
he's impressed.

"You have a very fine and loyal horse",

"But I will still kill you in two days."

"What is your SECOND request?"

The Lone Ranger again asks to speak
to his horse.

Silver is brought to him,
and he again whispers in the horse's ear.

As before, Silver takes off and disappears
over the

Later that evening, to the Chief's surprise,
Silver again returns,
this time with a voluptuous brunette,
more attractive than the blonde.

She enters the Lone Rangers tent

and spends the night.

The following morning the Indian Chief
is again impressed.

"You are indeed a man of many talents,"

"But I will still kill you tomorrow."

"What is your LAST request?"

The Lone Ranger responds,

"I'd like to speak to my horse...alone."

The Chief is curious, but he agrees, and Silver is brought to

the Lone Ranger's tent.

Once they're alone,
the Lone Ranger grabs Silver by both ears,
looks him square in the eye and says,

"Listen Very

One good thing about Warholian fame and modern 24hr social media...

by Vegas Ute
2014-07-29 08:43:13

By the time the "15-minues" are up I think most people are ready for them to be up.

Good luck to Harvey, I sincerely hope his decisions bring him happiness. I do think that a lot of the "messiness" of his decision-making process was regrettable and some of that must fall on his head. At the same time the young man became a "political football" for fans of both schools and certain members of the media.

The poorly kept secret of BYU or rather 3rd parties related to BYU, recruiting Missionaries is an issue that should be addressed by both the local media (good freaking luck) and the NCAA (The Harvey Langi rule anyone?).

However vilifying Harvey only plays into BYU's hands, trust me; BYU fans, media shills, and coaches are hoping that there are a bunch of Ute fans or better yet Ute coaches that will say something, anything that they can exaggerate into more of a story.

The more ho-hum Utah treats Harvey the better.

Another milk carton guy...

by Greginslc

Quite the drama...

Originally wanted to go to play for the Christmas Tree. Didn't have the grades or the test scores. Chooses Utah instead.

Early enrolls, plays spring ball, then plays that fall. Never really gets far enough up the depth chart to earn significant reps as a RB. Opts to go on a mission.

As the mission begins to end sees he will still be buried on the depth chart unless he tries to learn a new position. Based on illegal recruiting and review of NCAA rules for a loophole, TDS offers him a Scholly and says he can play RB at their school.

Harvey decides he wants to play for TDS.

Good luck Harvey, you are going to need it down there; and it's not personal but beware of what you ask for because you may get it.

Now let's get ready to cheer on the guys who really want to be here.

Team #9 in my countdown to the start of Fall Camp.

by UteThunder
2014-07-29 10:50:38

In case you missed it, I am predicting every Pac-12 team's game by game results(plus Utah State & BYU) working my way from worst record to best record on our way to the start of Fall Camp.

Previous Teams:

- Colorado 4-8(1-8)
- Oregon State 5-7(2-7)
- California 5-7(2-7)
- Arizona 6-6(3-6)
- Washington 7-6(3-6)
- BYU 7-5
- Washington State 7-5(4-5)
- Utah State 8-5(5-3)

Today's team, USC

Record: 7-5(5-4)

Fresno State - W
@ Stanford - L
@ Boston College - W
Oregon State - L
Arizona State - W
@ Arizona - W
Colorado - W
@ Utah - L
@ Washington State - L
California - W
@ UCLA - L
Notre Dame - W

I made a bit of a mistake when making my predictions and listed USC with an 8-4 record even though I had them losing 5, so I apologize for getting a bit out of order.

Moving on.

I'm not convinced Sarkisian is going to be the homerun hire USC thinks he is. At Washington he went 7-6 three years in a row before going 8-4 in his final year. That tells me either it is going to take him some time to get things going in L.A. or I am right that he is a good but not great coach. Either way, there will be some first year struggles.

In the WTF game of the year in the Pac-12, Mike Riley takes advantage of some "new coach's system" mistakes to get a shocking win in the coliseum. Utah & WSU are on the rise and will take advantage of playing at home against a new coach. Stanford & UCLA should need no explanation; they are the cream of the crop right now and will be playing at home.

Well Shep I suspect that you and your slip n slide mate Greg wrubell may be the ONLY two people in the world

Able to decipher his unique Broncoese language. Is there an app for that? Did you guys have to go to a special language school to understand the gibberish that flies out of his piehole?

Please refresh my memory which of the Ute Victories did he say the better team hadn't won?

When you ask bronco who is daddy is does his lip quiver and he begin to cry as he assumes a fetal position and whispers Kyle's name?

On the plus side Shep your boys have a better chance of escaping September with one loss instead of two.

For some of us, this 30 days flat flies.

With all of my stuff for work that just piles on in August, I am too busy to notice the "Hurry up and wait" too much.

For me it will be some day in a week or so when I wake up and go to workout and I get the feeling I am supposed to be reporting to pick up my gear and start practicing again.

GO UTES!!!!!

I was dubious about it last year, but it actually turned out pretty well. Set up for the first game of the year:
