    If someone put a gun to my head and said predict Utah's record next year...

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-03-26 14:48:20

    I'd say 4-8. Looking at the schedule, our history, our roster, our strengths, and weaknesses I think a 4-8 record is about right. Wins over Idaho St., Fresno St., Washington St., and one more game (probably either Arizona or CU). This schedule is fucking hard, even with the first two games.

    IF Whitt were to hand over the offensive duties 100%, with absolutely no mingling what so ever during games, to DC I could see us snagging a couple more and finishing with 6 or maybe even 7 wins. And that would be fantastic. I think for Whitt to save his job he needs to do less, not more. He needs to focus on being a coach, specifically maximizing his strengths of being a defensive mastermind, and letting the people he keeps bringing in handle the offense.

    I think it is his sense of responsibility, of being the one who has to take the responsibility of EVERYTHING that happens on the field, that has lead to our offense shenanigans over the last 4 years. It's a noble gesture, but dammit Whitt sometimes you just gotta let it be. What would be better would be taking responsibility for the hires, themselves, by letting things play out and not getting involved. Yes, it's a huge risk to sit back and let someone new come in and take total control over the offense, it COULD mean your job if it fails spectacularly. But I'd rather see that than the constant mingling and reigning in of the OC's and offenses every year during games.

    Quite frankly I'd kill for a 6-6 record this year and a bowl game. It would buy Whitt another year to appease a lot of posters here and it would show progress as a program. Another 5-7 or worse record and we're doing nothing but spinning our wheels and IMO it would be time to start looking elsewhere in terms of head coaches.

    People can spout off about how decisions made on keeping or firing someone is based upon lots of intangible things and specific circumstances, but at the end of the day this is a results business. Another losing record and poor results, the actual Wins vs Losses, is what will determine if Whitt stays or goes.

    So you're telling me things have gotten so bad at MIP that they're in a heated battle with North Dakota State University over an online "6th man" competition in which they're both using computer scripts to stuff the poll?

    Basketball rankings this time of year make even less sense to me than Football rankings (any time of the year)

    The AP poll came out today, some crazy jumps and drops for teams.

    Oregon....escapes Utah (12-2) and loses on the road to Colorado (13-2) and drops 7 spots from 10 to 17. Colorado nudges by OSU and beats Oregon and jumps 5 spots from 20 to 15. Ok, makes sense that the Buffs should be ranked ahead of UO, kinda hard to rationalize such a large drop by UO, they didn't exactly lose to awful teams, but whatever.

    San Diego State beats an overrated Kansas team by 4 on the road, jumps EIGHT spots from 21 to 13. Was SDSU just ranked to low to start? Kansas after their 4th loss (9-4 overall) of the season drops just 2 spots with a slew of good 10-14 win teams behind them. Hmmm.

    Duke loses on the road by 2 points to a 10-4 Notre Dame team and drops NINE spots from 7 all the way to 16. Dafuq?

    Guess it's just still early in the season and we're only just beginning the conference schedules, which will really determine the rankings in the end.

    Some thoughts about the game today.

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-01-04 22:26:18

    You gotta love how this team is growing together, there were a lot of parallels between todays game and the game thursday against UO. The main difference was that both teams were hitting their shots consistently today whereas both teams couldn't hit their shots on thursday. We saw the Utes battle and lead throughout the game, eventually building a solid lead in the second half only to go through a 5+ minute stretch where they couldn't hit a FG and let their opponent back in the game.

    On thursday that stretch did the Utes in, they let UO back in it and UO took advantage forcing the game to OT and getting the win. Today you saw the Utes take another step in the maturity department, they calmed down and started hitting the shots that got them into the lead in the first place. While OSU pressed, the Utes didn't force anything and hit the looks that they did not on thursday. Fantastic stuff to see.

    Towards the end you could really see OSU pressing to get back into it and the Utes VERY smartly controlled both the tempo and flow of the game. They played at a pace that prevented OSU to claw back and eventually shut the door. I think on thursday you saw a team that panicked a little bit during that 5 minute run with no FG's, they got out of sorts and rushed the play instead of just settling down and trying to control the game. That ultimately cost them at the end. A great sign of a team that has learned from previous close losses.

    I think what we'll see is this team lose a few on the road in the next couple games, learn from that experience and be coached on how to succeed. The UW/wSU road trip is going to be tough and if they manage a split I'll be ecstatic. These are the steps the team needs to take to develop into a group that can compete for conference titles and post-season berths.

    They're fun to watch, they're athletic as hell, and they're learning a lot from Coach K. Gotta love the direction this program is headed.

    Utes've come a long way, baby

    Itís been too long since Utah made opponents breathe sighs of relief. Itís a start.


    Damn. Just imagine if we had managed to pull that one out, I'm not a fan of moral victories so it is what it is....a loss. But I can't remember the last time I saw an opponent celebrate a victory like that against the Utes. Hopefully next time it'll be the Utes celebrating the close win. This team is fun to watch again, it's great seeing the progress they're making. Hopefully we can get a post season tournament under our belts this year, the NIT would be fantastic experience for this team and hopefully set them up for a run at an NCAA Tourney berth next year.

    Gotta finish, we've had a lot of wide open looks with some bad shooting. Loving the defense, though, Oregon is one of the highest scoring teams in the country and to hold them to 28 at the half is tremendous.

    Whitt's done after this year, we'll turn in another 4-8 or 5-7 year with wild inconsistencies, again.

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-12-20 22:43:42

    And that will be that.

    I'm sorry, but the problem just isn't that Whitt is just a defensive coach, or that he won't just give the reigns over the whatever flavor of the month OC he hires, or that he promotes and demotes like a kid goes through the latest hot toy. No. The problem as been and will continue to be that we can not and will not fill out our roster (at least offensively) with the talent, consistently, needed to win.

    We all hear about how great of recruiters we have and how that we're constantly upgrading our team. Not buying it. In fact I'd say we've taken a step back this year and it's only going to be more of the same, just meandering around picking up athletes here and there without any true sense of direction on offense. How on earth can Whitt or whoever else walk into some kids house, sit in his living room, listen to how much he wants to contribute to the Ute offense, and answer with a straight face "so who's going to be my offensive coordinator next year when I put on the Ute jersey for the first time?" THEN how on earth to you recruit your players to fill out your offense when you have no fucking clue what kind of offense, what kind of coach, or what kind of direction you want to head in? We're a spread option, no wait, we're a pro set, no wait, we're a pure spread, no wait, we're a hybrid of some sort, no wait....

    Well....uhhh....well, maybe Coach "X" will be out of his job and we can pick him up.

    OUR OFFENSIVE STAFF IS AN UTTER JOKE! Jesus Christ.Ludwig, A-rod, Schramm, BJ, Chow, DE, Christensen....just what in the fuck is going on?

    And still, Whitt has yet to fire a coach. Nope, he'll just demote them until they decide to go on their own.

    A service to help an alarming number of you, really, one in which will correct a very stupid problem many seem to have.

    This is our football roster:
    2013 Utah Football Roster

    An added bonus to that link? The coaches are listed at the bottom!

    So why am I doing this? Because many of you, for some reason cannot get NAMES spelled correctly. If this were just an occasional slip or mis-spelling here and there, whatever, but it's not. We're talking about our starting QB, our best player, our main coaches, guys who play huge roles on this team. Guys like:

    SCHULZ (notice the C and NO FREAKING T)
    REILLY (notice the E)
    ERICKSON (one C AND a K)


    Go ahead, click on the link, read through the list. This is a team that we all love to support (I hope), let's start by getting their freaking names right. Don't know why this has always been such a problem, goes back years with guys like Hays (no E) and others.

    I think this is some sort of bazaaro mix of the situations we saw at the end of McBride's tenure and what you saw with the 49ers pre-Harbaugh....

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-11-09 19:04:54

    I think Whitt is a great guy and he got us to where we are right now, but I do not think he is a Pac-12 level coach. Blue star away. I see a coach who has made extremely poor decisions with his personnel, a coach who has not grown at all in the last 3 years, and one who is not learning from his mistakes. I see a team that has regressed under this coach, one who is chasing its tail, who is a revolving door of incompetence in several areas. Let's face it, Whitt has stagnated. He's faced a huge challenge and there hasn't been any growth. At some point we have to face the reality, just as we did with McBride, that a change has to be made. I just don't want to sit here 1, 2, or even 3 more years going through the motions like we are now.

    Obviously we weren't going to step into the Pac-12 and just be a solid team from day one. It was always going to take several years to get our feet under us. But I haven't seen any progression. NONE. And I have a very very difficult time seeing an end to this. It's one thing to not have depth, which we don't, it's another to not see a single contribution from young, recruited athletes. I see a few plays consistently from guys like Jason Whittingham, Norwood, and Poole, but really that's about it. We have zero playmakers on offense who have been recruited since we joined the Pac-12. We hear about the athletes being recruited, we have solid recruit rankings, where are the contributions? Outside the defense, which has always been Whitt's pet, we have nothing. We have an oline that would be consistently blown up by MWC teams right now.

    As for the connection to those 9ers teams of recent history...we have the same revolving door (offensively) that they had. Just a constant churning of crap, over and over, misappropriating resources, time, and management. We also have a fanbase that jumps on every QB the second they start failing, just like the 9ers fans did with Alex. We have an o-line that couldn't block a defense from the women's lingerie league. And we have a QB whose confidence is shattered, whose coach doesn't believe he can make plays, whose been dealing with changes around him left and right, and a few injuries himself. Is Wilson an all-anything QB? No, probably not. But I guarantee you we could win with him with better coaching.

    In the end I think I'm done with this whole coaching staff, I just think we need to come clean and start over. To those that say "Whitt is the best we could hope for!" You're full of shit. Given the resources the program has available to it now (new facilities, in a great conference, local domination of the sport, great fan base, etc) , and in the immediate future (full "partner" of the Pac-12, a TON of money coming our way, etc), we can do better. And we HAVE done better as a school with far more hamstrung resources (Urban). It's a matter of taking the leap, giving up the security blanket we've had for a while, the guy that kept us warm for several years and gave us a TON of great memories. We're in our infancy as a Pac-12 school, let's grow up a little now and become an adolescent, shed the baby blanket.

    Add one more thing to why Comcast is the worst company

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-11-03 01:37:35

    Move along if you don't want to read a hate filled post.

    Up until a couple days I was able to get "OTA" (over the air) channels on my tv. I put OTA in quotation marks because where I live it is impossible to use an antenna to get any tv reception. I tried everything, several HD antennas, rabbit ears, amplifiers, everything. Short of running a few hundred feet of cable through my apartment and up the side of the building no antenna was/is going to work. What did work was just taking a coax cable, plugging into a jack in the wall and running it to my tv. My tv (and almost all modern tv's) have what is called a QAM tuner which can scan those signals and find analog and digital channels. All perfectly legal and before the age of digital companies like Comcast fairly standard for a while.

    Well a couple days ago I just stopped getting signal from any of those channels. I tried everything to figure out what the hell was going on, reset my tv, changed cables, unplugged my cable internet modem and only ran the cable to the tv, rescanned the signal for channels. The only thing that ever came back was a couple channels from Comcast themselves, their "guide" channel and a Comcast marketing channel. So I searched high and low through the interwebs. Well, after quite a bit of searching I finally got my answer, Comcast is now encrypting all local channels and is slowly working through each city, in practice they are blacking out the standard over the air free channels to anyone who uses a coaxial cable. They started doing this earlier this year and offered a limited period option of picking up an HD Digital Transport Adapter. Basically a little box they give you that allows you watch those channels by descrambling their encryption. The period allowed you to pick one of these up and use it for 2 years for free. Well the period was short lived and now you have to pay $10 a month just to have access to those "free" channels.

    What a fucking crock of shit. How is this even legal? From what I've read the FCC just doesn't care, they understand the situation and has said "meh." IE, these huge companies are paying us a shitload of money just to look the other way. What a fucking joke. I used to have cable tv, until I realized I was paying $130 a month for 8 bazillion channels of which I only watched about 5. You can pretty much stream or download anything you want to watch over the internet for free. So out goes the cable box, I kept the cable modem and pay $30 a month for high speed internet. It was great because I could stream/download any show I wanted to watch and I still had all the major networks to watch major programming and sports in HD.

    TL;DR version:
    Fuck Comcrap.
    Comcrap is now blocking free networks if you use coax.
    Comcrap now charges a monthly fee to access those channels.

    /End Rant. Thanks if you managed to read through my tirade.

    Need some advice regarding a windshield situation for my car

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-11-02 16:28:58

    Recently bought a used car and last night was really the first time it's been in heavy rain. I was at a cousins house and when I came out to the car water had been leaking through the top of the windshield somewhere, it ran down my rear view mirror and dripped onto my dash and then leaked into my stereo and climate control. The display on the stereo stopped working and the climate control is not working properly. The car doesn't have any kind of warranty or anything like that.

    Just wondering what my options are here, I know insurance agency's will replace windshields if they are cracked or have bad rock chips (depending on your coverage you might have to pay the deductible), would this kind of situation I'm in be covered by that? Or am I SOL having to pay to have the windshield fixed and my broken stereo/climate control myself?

    Doesn't matter who you are, you aren't going to win any game with 6 TO's. We're close to being a Pac-12 team athletically in key positions, but we're nowhere near a Pac-12 team mentally.

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-10-04 00:07:32

    We have too many problems mentally in Pac-12 games to be an average team in this conference. TO's are only part of it, lousy penalties at inopportune times again cost us good field position at key moments of the game. We had stalled drives that really hurt us.

    Credit to UCLA for taking advantage, it's tough to completely stop a team as athletically gifted as that. They had chances to make plays and did so and while they had a lot of penalties they did enough to give themselves a chance to win and they did. That's how Pac-12 teams win on the road.

    So the season comes down to this, we HAVE to win the Colorado and ASU games and steal one of @Arizona, @WSU or @USC to get bowl eligible. It sure as hell isn't going to be easy, none of those games are close to gimme's. Unless we can find a way to play a clean game in Pac-12 play we aren't going bowling this year.

    As was mentioned, the Utes need to play a clean game in order to have a chance tonight, but that goes beyond the obvious (ie turnovers)

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-10-03 09:34:56

    By a clean game I mean no false starts or delay of game penalties that stall drives. No penalties on special teams during kickoffs or punts, thus giving the Bruins good field position. No stupid penalties when the Bruins are facing third downs giving them easy conversions. And no stupid penalties negating big gains on offense.

    Late hits, taunting, celebration and procedural penalties are what will lose us this game. Pac-12 refs are awful and will absolutely call even the weakest of these of these penalties, Utes have to keep their heads and play a smart game to have a chance to win tonight. I think physically and athletically they are decent enough, but if they can't compete mentally as a Pac-12 school (and we really haven't in our first 2 years) than we are going to continue to lose these types of games.

    Glad we won, it was absolutely critical to our bowl eligibility hopes, but it didn't help my opinions/hopes of being a better team in the long run

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-09-22 12:29:49

    I am SO. FUCKING. SICK. of the damn conservative nature of Whitt coached teams. We're up 20-6 with way too much time left in the game, you have a QB hitting 70% of his throws with no INT's and no fumbles. You've figured out a strategy to work their defense with a combo of screen passes, runs to edge and passes over the top/middle. So let's just go three up the gut, into the strength of the defense, for a quarter and half. DAMMIT Whittingham, get the damn sand out of your vagina, this kind of game calling will absolutely cost us games in the Pac-12 if we are in a similar position.

    Taysom Hill couldn't hit water if he was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on an inner tube. That guy is one of, if not the worst passing QB in the entire NCAA. And we still gave up several big plays. Sure, give credit to Hoffman who is a good WR, but nobody else on that team would be a player for any Pac-12 team. We are going to continue to give up huge yardage in the air all season long. Look at their receivers, long of 20, long of 26, long of 32, long of 30. At least we were able to generate SOME pass pressure on Hill. I honestly have no idea if that was us making plays (which we haven't against the two decent teams we've played thus far) or TDS's o-line just being terrible.

    WTF happened on kick coverage? Yikes. I'm going to chalk this up to an anomaly because it's been good all year.

    Pac-12 refs continue to be Pac-12 refs, the worst in the country by a long shot. They were bad, on both sides, all night long. Both teams got horrible calls against them and for them.

    Looking at the rest of the conference, it's going to be damn tough to get 3 more wins. Outside USC, who has a GREAT defensive front 7, and Colorado this conference is an offensive juggernaut. Colorado at home is really the only game I see on the rest of our schedule where I believe we will win. I hope to god it's freezing cold and snowing for ASU at home, that is probably our second most likely to win game even though ASU has had our number the last two years. We still have to manage to find a win either on the road at Zona or WSU or at home against a highly ranked opponent. Given how the conference is playing, right now, it's going to be an absolute battle for those last 3 wins.

    Having watched USU twice, BSU twice and FSU twice now, why are these chode announcers creaming all over either these teams tonight? IMO USU is better than both and will win the MWC. Defensively USU is better than BSU and FSU from what I've seen...

    until the zoobs did nothing, than would have sent that stuff to the media.

    But he didn't. So look at this from a professional standpoint in a Utah point of view. Our compliance officer ends up with this email from someone claiming to be a "die hard Utah Utes fan." Ok, what now? If she sits on the info and doesn't at least email it to the BYU compliance officer, then Duddley goes public with the info and perhaps even drops a "oh ya, I sent this to the U of U compliance office who did nothing" in the expose. Then the U looks like amateurs and gets dragged into someone else's shit storm looking even worse. No matter what, the fact that this was emailed to the U's compliance officer was going to come out bad looking for her. At least she did the right thing and quickly sent it to BYU for their own judgement.

    Unfortunately this is looking like a 4 or 5 win season at best. What's most disappointing is it appears our defense has taken a massive step back

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-09-15 13:23:50

    A normal strength of this team, a hallmark of Whitt teams overall, has become a glaring weakness. 3 games in and I'm absolutely struggling to find any positives with the D in any facet of the game. Individually guys like Reilly and Orchard have been pretty good. But as units, there is no standout. Our DB's and D-line are DREADFUL. Thanks to some stat padding against lowly Weber St. the overall numbers don't look so bad, but we generate absolutely zero pass rush and the good QB's we've faced have lit up our secondary like a roman candle war on the fourth of July. That's a really bad combination and a recipe for disaster. Even the mediocre QB's in this conference (and there aren't many) are going to torch us. Is it the coaching? Is it the players themselves? Is it recruiting? What has propagated this situation?

    Sitake hasn't appeared to make any strides as a D-coordinator and we might be looking at having to make a change in that position after the season. It's amazing how far his stock has fallen, once a front runner for the Hawaii head coaching position a couple years ago and now getting lit up by every team with a pulse we face.

    This isn't to take anything away from Keeton or Mannion (or any of the future QB's we face), but my goodness has our defense been serving it up on platter for these guys. Our D-line is pathetic, the defensive schemes for the DB's leaves us exposed on every play, LB's aren't getting involved at all (Reilly needs to be exclusively used as a DE, stop dropping him into coverage for the love of god). We're losing the TO battle and outside one or two guys nobody is stepping up to make any big plays.

    At least the offense seems to be developing nicely. Got off to a slow start last night which doomed us, with our defense we need to be putting points on the board from the first possession on. We should probably stop deferring to the second half and just take the opening kick every game if we can. It's great that Ericckson has got them putting up 40+ points per game because we're going to need all that and more if we want to win enough games to sniff a bowl.

    Sorry for chicken little post, but yesterday was a must win for our bowl eligibility hopes and we took a massive dump when it mattered most. 4 more wins out of our 9 remaining games is going to take a MASSIVE effort from everybody starting with this week. Quite frankly if we don't beat TDS then we aren't going bowling.

    Some thoughts on OSU fans, "aspiring to be a program like OSU" and some resentment...

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-09-11 13:26:05

    A lot of interesting posts recently (as well as Kragthorpe's article on how Utah should aspire to be a program like OSU's), as a Portland Oregon resident the last 10 years I'd just like to write down some thoughts/insights into how OSU's fans have lived over the past decade.

    OSU has been a steady program, seemingly always good but never great. Their a program that wins its fair share of games, has more winning seasons than losing seasons, but can never seem to take the next step towards bigger things in college football. The Mike Riley era has been filled with a few decent bowls, a lot of 7, 8 or 9 win seasons and not much else. As a program it seems like every time they are picked to have a great season or move up to bigger and better things they just kind plod around in the mud and underachieve. They are a program that has produced some great athletes and at times seem like they should have done more with them. Riley is a good coach, seems to get a lot out of his players and given the nature of being in UO's shadow seems to overachieve quite a bit.

    It certainly is a program I would like to see Utah aspire to in terms of a FOUNDATION. 7-9 wins a year as a Pac-12 school is pretty damn good. What I don't want Utah to become is a program that never takes that next step. Since that magical Erickson season that saw them go to the Fiesta Bowl they've really been in contention for the conference championship ONE time. Once, in 13 years, that just wouldn't cut it for me. I don't expect the Utes to be competing for Pac-12 championships every year, but to basically be in the backseat always looking up for 10+ years, that just wouldn't be enough for me.

    Now, as for the fans and their recent sense of "seniority" shall we say....Well, just look at their recent history. As a fan base and a program they have been living in UO's shadow for over half a decade now. UO, like OSU, was mired in mediocrity for a LONNNGGGGGG time. Then they started getting decent and put together some solid years. This is where the story changes, dramatically, UO took the next step and became an elite program (thank you Nike). UO fans are unbearable, the most arrogant self entitled dick wads you will meet in the PacNW. Uncle Phil backed up the Brinks truck and said "have at it" while OSU has been unable to move up. OSU has received sizable donations for Phil as well, but the fact that UO has taken off while OSU continues to be just good, never great, sticks in the craw of a lot of OSU fans.

    OSU fans feel like they've paid their due, they support a good coach and a generally good team. But whenever they are picked for big things the team falters. Whenever they are picked for mediocre or below average seasons, they tend to surprise and put together a nice year. But they just haven't been able to take that next step. Along comes Utah, pounding our chests over recent BCS success and happy to be part of the big boy table. I think even after a few crappy years from the Utes, BEAVER fans think we still hold out hope for bigger things, NOW. I think most Beaver fans still believe that us Ute fans think we're just going to roll to big season and land in the Rose Bowl no problem.

    Therein lies the problem. Hell, I still get ribbed by my OSU and UO fans when I wear my Ute gear. "This ain't the WAC or whatever you played in, you aren't going to roll over a bunch of patsies for a BCS bowl." They haven't come to the realization that WE KNOW THAT NOW. They're under the impression that we are still riding the wave of our BCS bowl victories and that we think that is going to translate to a great Pac-12 season every year.

    Realistically though most OSU fans are extremely nice, they're not the arrogant douche bags that Duck fans have become. They still love to tailgate, support their Beavers and enjoy football. Just gotta find the ones not hiding behind a keyboard on some message board.

    Monday morning musings...

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-09-09 09:56:23

    Things I think we (as fans) should take away from the win over Weber State:

    .....







    nothing. Well, ok, maybe nothing, but pretty damn close. The Utes, as a team, did exactly what they are supposed to do to a team of the quality of WSU. They handled business, executed the offense, played well on defense and got the backups a whole half of reps. About all you can ask in a situation like this, where the opponent is more or less a practice squad game and you just hope you escape with zero injuries.

    As for the actual game, I think we should take nothing from it because I just don't see the Utes playing that type of game from here on out. Here's why: we won't be breaking off 30, 40, 50, 60, 70+ yard plays on a regular basis against the remaining teams. This isn't taking anything away from Wilson, Dres, Denham, Fitzgerald or any of the other guys, they played great and showed great athleticism making those plays. The teams we play from here on out are just that much more athletic.

    This is going to sound stupid, but I was kinda hoping to see some more "sustained" drives from the first string offense. We hit so many home run type plays it just kinda felt like a playstation game. I'm glad we got that 2 minute drill practice at the end of the first half, that was great. Just wish we would have practiced some plays, routes, and formations that we will need to work the ball (and manage the clock) against Pac-12 defenses. We won 70-7 and 7 minutes less time of possession. There is absolutely nothing to complain about here, in that game, but realistically the only teams I can see maintaining that TOP and consistently winning games are ones like Oregon.

    Looking forward to the OSU game this weekend, this is an important game for bowl eligibility purposes. Win this and we are set up nicely to ensure we at least get to a bowl game this year. Plus this will help us get off that bottom tier of Pac-12 teams and hopefully get us into that middle of the conference area. It's still way too early to be making any kind of projections, but with our schedule and our opponents quality (thus far) I can see the Utes hovering in the middle third of the conference. It's looking like the top teams are UO, Stanford, and UW with possibly UCLA breaking into that. Than you have ASU....and a big mess that will be sorted out. I think after ASU there really is no pecking order for the Pac-12 and parity will really dominate. Any weekend could see any of the remaining 7 teams beating each other. From a talent perspective each team has its matchups and areas that will work against certain opponents and fail miserably against others.

    It's going to be an interesting year for over half the conference, who is going to make a run and what will the middle and bottom tiers of the conference look like? Utes need a win this weekend to get themselves into that middle tier.

    Then when his coach comes out to talk to him he COMPLETELY ignores him and walks past him to the sideline. Someone needs to take this kid down a notch or two, fucking asshole.

    Meh to the Aggie smack talk, let em have it, they do have scoreboard and hopefully that changes in 9 days, I could care less....

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-08-20 09:36:56

    We have bigger worries as fans of a team to worry about than what the Aggie fans are yapping about on their boards. Maybe they win again this year, maybe they don't, that's why the teams play the game. Utah as a team and we as fans have been in their shoes before and it was not long ago either. Great for them, they beat a Pac-12 team last year and have another shot this year, we lived off that "BCS graveyard" for how many years?

    At the end of the day we have a team with a lot of holes, a lot of questions marks all over the field, and a monumental challenge to get bowl eligible in a year where we have probably our toughest schedule EVER. The Aggies as a football team would struggle to win 2 or 3 games in the Pac-12, that team isn't half what our program was before entering the Pac-12 and we all know how that's turned out. The pundits were right (grumble grumble), getting up for one or two tough games a year is very manageable. Going through a 9 game Pac-12 conference schedule with some tough OOC games is a whole other thing.

    So let their fans talk, let's just hope our team and coaches are focused and ready to take care of business and get better.

    WRT the poll, saw Star Trek Into Darkness last night, very good movie and worth seeing in theaters, could use a little more Alice Eve in her underwear though...but I digress...

    by PDXUtefan
    2013-05-17 14:47:11

    I really enjoyed all the references to the original Star Trek movies, JJ Abrams has done a good job creating movies where you don't have to have seen the earlier films to understand what is going on in the new ones. BUT if you have seen the older films it adds to experience of watching the new ones. The plot got a little thin in places, but the ending was dramatic and the film was entertaining overall.

    They had a new preview for World War Z before the movie, this is the 4th or 5th preview for that movie I've seen and I'm completely convinced that it will have absolutely NOTHING to do with the book. I've yet to see any clips from that movie that shows anything resembling the story line of the book, in any form. Maybe I made the mistake of reading the book first, but I have zero desire to see that movie and every preview I see makes me not want to see it even more. The book is great, could have been a cinema masterpiece if they had actually made it like the book. Instead it's another Hollywood action fest with lots of shooting/explosions and very little basis on what the original work was. They should have just named it something else instead of trying to sell it off the book, now they're going to piss a whole lot of zombie film fans who all loved the book.

    Stupid damn ESPN, Miller puts on a clinic in the 4th quarter and the only Miller highlight they show is the game winner. Meanwhile they show 20 seconds of Curry missing shots, literally. Unbelievable.

    Can't even stand ESPN and the NBA anymore, it's such a fucking joke. Go to watch highlights expecting to see Andre dominating, instead I get half a minute of literal garbage from one guy, a couple threes and the Miller game winner.
