Something of a minor contrast in styles

"At this particular time period, I’m challenging them. It’s time for cleaner execution. It’s time for a collective to raise and rise to the occasion of performance and each player being accountable for doing their job exactly right. Not kind of right, not sometimes right, but exactly right. It is controllable. And that is the solution. If I’m able to capture their hearts around that, it will change. If they think there’s another way, it won’t."
--Bronco Mendenhall

"We gotta play better."
--Kyle Whittingham

I see no reason to pile on Harvey. Maybe I'm being naive, but to me, he's still sort of a Ute who made a short-sighted mission goggles decision that may very well bite him in the butt.

If he plays against Utah in his sr. year, I hope we bury him. Otherwise, I wish the kid well.

There are other guys who transfer from the U to the Y who I feel never really had their heart at the U in the first place. I don't shed tears for guys like that. Langi feels different for some reason that I can't explain.

So you see Benedict Arnold as still sort of an American?

Don't get it. Utah invested a lot in him, recruiting, strength training, coaching, etc, all wasted now.

I don't wish him any harm, such as injury, but hope the stunning mediocracy effect of playing for a mid-major-wannabe program comes through as a shining example for others who are recruited on missions.

Less than a month ago every single post was about potential playoffs, Heisman's. The outstanding stewardship by homoe and roscoe. The flexing power of its global fanbase and brand.....and my favorite "Bring on Alabama"


A cold dose or reality has been splashed upon them like a cold Budweiser dumped down the nape of their necks.

Enjoy it while it lasts because when they boat race Savannah St. The delusion will come back stronger than ever.

Report from the road

Today my 6 th grade daughter was allowed to wear a jersey of her choice to team against drugs. Before I left, I laid out:

Angels World Series Erstad
Ducks Cup
Kings Cup
Utah last year
Utah Smith Fiesta
Utah Star TCU blackout (mixed feelings this was the game worn jersey, Star worked his tail off some of the patches were torn)
Utah Fouts retro

She wore the RETRO and looked awesome. Bear in mind she is going into the teeth of Toejam country prior to the game. So if my 11 year old is not worried and representing so should all of us. I will post the picture this evening.

Bronco needs to stop being so loquacious and start waxing poetic...(Re-post from below)

Here's a suggestion for his next fireside.

The fault, dear Stripling Warriors, is not in our stars and and not in our plan, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.

Cougar and Ute — what should be in that “Ute”? Why should that name be sounded more than ours?

Write them together, ours is as fair a name. Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well. Weigh them, it is as heavy.

Conjure with 'em, “Cougar” will start a spirit as soon as “Ute.”

Now in the names of all the gods at once, upon what meat doth this our Ute feed that he is grown so great?

Cougar, thou art shamed! Provo, thou hast lost the breed of noble bloods!

-- Julius Caesar (I, ii, 140-150, sort of)

After all the other games were over I watched the UNR game...

Kinda keyed in on watching Langi after a noticed he was in the game following a personal foul penalty he committed. He seems to be a little lost as far as LB technique...... Attacked the bal carrier or "pile" like stunning back---- straight at it leaning forward as opposed to shifting and anticipating and staying in his lane----- ball went up the hole he vacated several times that I recall.......
This is a reflection of coaching and not a personal attack on his moral. Character---- I am not calling him out on his Spirit, Honor, Integrity or Tradition....
