    A 10-win season had to have been a great way to finish your career at Utah.

    Travis Wilson: I was really happy with the way I got to finish my career and I was really happy I was able to be a four-year starter at Utah and end my career with a win against the team we played.


    Won't even say their name. HA!

    The Ducks ranked 117th in total defense this past season (485.3 yards a game) and 116th in scoring defense (37.5 points a game).

    Hoke's Michigan teams were solid on defense. The year before his arrival, the Wolverines ranked 110th in total defense (450.8 yards per game). In Hoke first season, Michigan improved to 17th (322.2). In his last year, the Wolverines ranked seventh in the nation, allowing 311.3 yards a game.


    Yates spent the past two seasons at Boise State as defensive coordinator, leading a unit that was ninth nationally with 31 forced turnovers. He was a defensive back at Boise State from 1996-99 and coached defensive backs from 2003-11.

    I usually keep the Zoob Category unchecked but every now and then I feel compelled to say something.

    This past football season BYU was the #1 draw for their opponent's home games one time. That was Utah State.

    In every other game, save Nebraska, they were in the bottom half of their opponent's home attendance.

    Nebraska 3rd of 7
    UCLA 4th of 6
    Michigan 6th of 7
    San Jose State 4th of 6
    Missouri 7th of 7

    How rich is this? Everett Golson transfer and the righteous SEC

    by MTM
    2015-05-14 10:44:30

    The SEC banned its schools from accepting graduate transfers in 2011 after Mississippi accepted quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who had been dismissed from Oregon's team.

    The SEC lifted the ban last year, but with restrictions that prohibited institutions from accepting players who had significant disciplinary or eligibility issues at their previous schools.

    What does Utah, Arizona, Arizona St., Colorado, Iowa St., UCLA, and Washington have in common?

    by MTM
    2015-02-06 09:03:29

    They all offered Travis Wilson out of high school.

    Evidently a lot people who know more than everybody on this board saw something in him.

    He has suffered the same fate Alex Smith did his first 5 years with the 49ers.

    If he can get his confidence back I believe he can still be an effective enough QB.

    I have a feeling 2015 is going to be a great season.

    And the defender is leaning toward Loveridge expecting that pass. By the time he could have caught the pass and squared up he would have had a defender in his face too. Of course, all this is easy to say because Brandon's ball went in the hoop.
