    The coaching carousel begins. While we're anticipating which teams will go to what bowls, how bout some speculation on who will fill the P5 coaching vacancies?

    I've already seen speculation that Georgia may go after David Shaw or Gary Patterson.

    This will be a busy time for Bronco withdrawing his name from consideration for each opening.

    Was there any doubt? Gionni Paul PAC12 Defensive Player of the Week...and Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-11-09 12:30:21


    Paul, a senior linebacker from Winter Haven, Fla., was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week after accounting for two of Utah’s four takeaways in the Ute’s 34-23 victory over Washington. Paul returned a fumble 54 yards for a touchdown and returned an interception 27 yards to the Washington 8-yard line, ultimately setting up a touchdown. He had nine total tackles and a game-high two sacks, including a key sack in the third quarter on 3rd-and-6 at the Utah 30-yard line. His sack forced the Huskies who were then trailing by four points to punt. This is Paul’s second Pac-12 weekly honor this season, previously winning the award on Sept. 14.

    SIAP, Chase Hansen talks about playing safety.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-10-21 20:16:07

    Eager redshirt freshman Chase Hansen just wants to play even... if it's on defense

    “It’s all about the team,” Hansen said. “It’ll always be about the team and right now the best way I can help the team is on defense and special teams. So that’s what I’m doing.”

    “He’s fast, he’s tough, he’s got size, he’s instinctive and as the third quarterback there’s not really any reps for him right now,” said Whittingham, who added that the shift to safety is temporary and Hansen will be back at quarterback this spring. “That’s the vision we have right now.”

    If you were Devontae Booker would you rather be the Heisman Trophy winner or the first RB (and highest paid) in this year's draft?

    by 3UteDad
    2015-10-19 14:07:49

    Unless Booker puts up incredible numbers over the last half of the season he'll be an also ran in the Heisman voting. However, I think he's showing all the skill and versatility the NFL looks for in a star running back. He has a better chance of being the first back taken than of winning the Heisman...not a bad consolation prize.

    Someone mentioned Gionni's tatt when I posted this pic a few days ago...here's your answer.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-10-12 20:15:45

    Even as Gionni Paul wears Utah red, there's still a constant reminder of his previous affiliation on his right biceps: a tattoo of the Miami "U," half orange, half green.

    Ink lasts for a lifetime, but that doesn't mean it can't be covered up. And Paul plans to swap out his old "U" for a new "U." He's thinking red for this one.

    "I'm really about to change it," he told reporters Monday. "I'm about to go over it. My heart is at the University of Utah right now. Forever."

    Too bad we can't crowd source the funding for this.

    I'm sure this was discussed last night but I'm too lazy this morning to scroll back. How many times did Cal run that pick play when they line up 3 wide? They only called the penalty once, but they used the same formation many times.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-10-11 09:19:53

    I remember once the Cal receiver pushed his rear end out to bump the Utah defender as he tried to get around him. I know Utah runs this same type of play, but Cal used it multiple times and racked up some significant yardage.

    Some institutions may give up on football all together.

    87 Deceased NFL Players Test Positive for Brain Disease

    Researchers with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Boston University have now identified the degenerative disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, in 96 percent of NFL players that they’ve examined and in 79 percent of all football players. The disease is widely believed to stem from repetitive trauma to the head, and can lead to conditions such as memory loss, depression and dementia.

    In total, the lab has found CTE in the brain tissue in 131 out of 165 individuals who, before their deaths, played football either professionally, semi-professionally, in college or in high school.

    When the movie "Concussion" is released there will be even more momentum for changes.

    FWIW....ESPN ranking of PAC12 quarterbacks.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-08-26 11:37:09


    9. Utah: This much hasn't changed since last season: Travis Wilson and Kendal Thompson are the Utes' two guys at quarterback, and neither has proved to be a particularly dominant force at the Pac-12 level. But both do bring strengths to the table, and in an offense built around stud running back Devontae Booker, they won't be asked to deliver superhuman feats. Coach Kyle Whittingham just needs someone to deliver stability and open a little breathing room for the rushing attack, and that much seems possible in Salt Lake City.

    I'll be pulling for Travis this season after all he has been through in his time with the Utes. But if we ever go into a season again with a senior quarterback ranked so poorly, it is a failure on the part of the coaching staff, not the player.
