Ted Miller calls Utah's linebackers a position of strength ...

it was only a couple of years ago that we were all wringing our hands about our LB's. This year's group, might be the best Utah's ever had.

Langi was wise to transfer, he would have never seen the field.

It was just posted on cooter bored that Taysom is one of the strongest player on their team. Last week one of their linebackers was the fastest players on their team.

Impressive tds. To have your QB be one of your strongest and a LB your fastest. Keep on recruiting this way and you will end up in the Big Sky.

Rivals did a look back at Michigan last year. I disagreed with the characterization of Thompson's work as poor. He drove the field once he settled down after being thrown in at the goal line. I also loved Travis' toughness.

The D will be good but they will be better. They had a massive coaching upgrade. They will have growing pains but I expect our game to be close. Just stirring the pot.

He will be at worst a 2nd round draft pick at Corner. His WR days are over, unless ARod is in desperate need of WRs.

He played Lights Out last year, and will be one of our best lockdown secondary defenders this year. Look at the Defensive stats. 38 tackles, 11 pass breakups, and the game-winning Pick 6 against Copper.

That's about as good a breakdown as I've seen. And funny how you'll only get that level of reporting from our own conference.

As opposed to the east-coast ESPN hacks who don't have a clue as to what's really going on, not only with Utah, but the other PAC-12 schools. But they'll write plenty about it anyway, as if they know what they're talking about.

Everyone knows our offense sucks.....

Is this the year they put it all together and challenge for the Pac-12 south? Maybe. Maybe not.

There is plenty of returning talent but Travis Wilson has had an up-and-down career and the Utes offense in general has not been potent enough in the past. Devontae Booker might be the answer. He could just as easily not be enough.

More than likely it's the head gasket, not the cylinder head itself (Unless they know it's cracked)

head gasket would be around $1k from a shop ($30-100 in parts) unless the head needs to be decked also, which would add ~$200

New cylinder head would be that in labor plus $300-500 for the head.

I'm the kind of person that would do it myself and would get the parts from Rockauto

As stated before you have a blown head gasket...

by Maji Man

the cylinder head is basically the top of the engine block separated from the rest by the head gasket. If the head needs replacing its because its warped or something? What caused the car to break down? Warping or cracking would be caused from severe overheating for which there could be other symptoms that may not appear until engine is reassembled. So beware there could be other costs after the head is replaced.

I would still lean toward a completely rebuilt engine ... $2300 sounds pricey to me just for the head and replacing the gasket, but then again, you are at a stealership. Some people have named other mechanics, perhaps you could call them and ask what they'd charge for
1) replacement head and labor
2) labor for rebuilt engine swap
3) helping you find a rebuilt engine and ballpark cost for same

Checking around some parts houses a cylinder head can be obtained for a 4.7L 8 for around $500, gasket $100. Might need bolts and other stuff, say $100. So they are charging you $1600 labor.

Haven't watched an NBA game in years, but I think it's time to jump on the bandwagon to support Bogut.

Oh, and it's a twofer as Cactus Zoob's most cherished son goes down as well.
