Re-reading the Best/Worst Case Scenario for Utah last year

Posted By: cald22well
Date: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 12:30 pm

It was posted by the Pac-12 blog on 8/27/12, here are some of the quotes from the Worst Case Scenario-It is kind of scary.

The Utes are unable to get John White IV going and protection for Wynn has been terrible. Questions at offensive tackle obviously didn't get answered. On defense, inexperience at linebacker is showing, but the lack of a pass rush is most surprising.


Utah is competitive for the most part, but it still lacks the depth and variety of offensive weapons to consistently win against Pac-12 foes.


The Utes finish 5-7, their first losing record since 2002.


Pretty much spot on as far as the worst case scenario. I think it is important to keep in mind that last year really was a worst case scenario of sorts, everything that could go wrong did.

I'm not predicting a great season, and there is definitely the possibility that everything could go wrong again this year. But I think that the Utes will be a competetive 8 win team this year with a good possibility to over achieve.

SeaTacUte icon NEW: 8 wins?? Nope - that's not going to happen. We don't even know who the starting QB is going to be. And a defense that has more questions than answers. Lastly, a brutal schedule. 5 wins is my guess. (nm)

o NEW: Yup. I don't get why people think that it won't be Wilson. If there was any chance that it wouldn't be Wilson this year, Hays would have finished out last year. I would say Cox/Manning/Thomas have a better chance starting over Schultz. (nm)

o NEW: Good coaches don't look backward (i.e. Wilson over Hays > ensuring Wilson as the starter?); going forward is all that matters. The best man will win out........or the front runner will lose his way out and benched. (nm)

o NEW: I don't know if this is true. How different would last season have been if Wilson had been the guy since day 1? Or Wynn never got hurt? I think Whitt and BJ really hurt themselves sticking with Wynn. I understand it, because they had both been apart

o NEW: We have no big name players on this team. We are implementing a new offensive scheme (again). All signs point to a tough year. But there's always optimism that things will come together well.
