    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.

    UtahUtes.com already has this listed as an 11 OR Noon start on PAC12 Networks.

    I assume this can be considered accurate, yes? Just seemed a little early have it decided based on how the season has gone in relation to game times and TV.

    Clay's fumble and momentum

    by MTM
    2014-11-10 09:34:54

    Certainly feels like that game might have been different had we gone up 14-0 early.

    But I also remember going up 14-0 against USC in 2012 and RES was going wild and nothing specific happened to kill that momentum and we still lost....to a 7-6 USC team.

    I feel terrible for Clay but, personally, I don't think it decided the game.

    All we needed was 10-15 yards to give Andy a good chance at the game winner.

    QB play

    by MTM
    2014-11-02 14:31:45

    Stats don't tell the whole story but I am a stat geek so humor me.

    Since joining the PAC the best season turned in by a QB statistically speaking based on Passer Rating?

    Jon Hays 2012.
    The year he was yanked for a Freshman Travis Wilson. I still think the Utes go bowling in 2012 if they stayed with Hays, but I digress.

    Followed by
    TW 2013
    TW 2014
    JH 2011
    TW 2012
    Thompson 2014
    Adam Schulz 2013

    Using ESPN's QB Rating matrix which takes into consideration plays made with their legs-

    Using ESPN's Adjusted QB Rating accounts for strength of opposing Defenses-

    I don't know what any of this means but found it interesting that for all the crap Jon Hays took he was best passing option we've had in 4 years. Or that Adam Schulz last year, adjusted for opponent, is better than TW this year.

    The other thing of note is how much TW's production is off from last year. And that KT is way off Travis' numbers this year. KT can be more dynamic to watch but statistically he's not really close to TW due primarily to the number of sacks he takes which is much higher than any other PAC QB we've had and 4 times higher than TW 2014.
