    Baylor's third string QB is lighting up OK State. After their second string QB was doing well to get them 21 points before getting hurt.

    But, you know, we should expect that because Baylor is such a historical blue blood football power and it's so easy to recruit kids to go play in Waco, texas, the high profile town and school that it is.

    Finally got some coffee in me, all I can do is shake my head at Kyle's complete inability to figure out Arizona

    Nothing pisses me off more than seeing Whitt be outcoached by that huge loser Dick Rod, there isn't a bigger baby in college football than that asshole and he owns Whitt.

    The offense didn't win us the game, but the defense sure as hell lost us it. We looked absolutely clueless how to defend them, Domo got embarrassed early on, the DB's got their lunch money stolen time and again, and the only thing that helped us was knocking Anu out of the game. The defense was on it's heels the whole time Anu was on the field, they got whatever they wanted and the only reason the score wasn't worse was because of their self inflicted wounds (going for it on 4th instead of taking 3, the bad snap that cost them a TD shot, several easy dropped balls). The defense was flat out unprepared for this Zona team, again.

    It's crazy to think how limited our offense has become since the Oregon game, we basically have one play that works with any decent frequency besides utilizing Booker, the swing pass out into the flat and letting Covey/Booker/Poole/Whoever try and use their athleticism to make a play. Zona was on the SIXTH (6!!!!) starting Middle Linebacker and he got hurt! Why the fuck weren't we attacking the middle of the field more? Handley goes for an easy TD and that was it, the only over the middle play we ran. Instead we tailored our offense to fit PERFECTLY into their defense, trying to get to the edge where they have speed and keep the game side to side instead of vertical. And in OT when we had something working we went with ridiculous play calls and lost yardage.

    I've been following this league for quite a while, this will chafe some peopele's asses, but I can't help but feel like we've pissed away a truly special opportunity. There are SO FEW opportunities for teams to do something magical in this league, it just doesn't happen very often, even for the so called "blue bloods" of the Pac. Most teams are lucky if they have one season a decade where they can put it all together, this was that time for the Utes. Sure, we've had a better than expected year, but the thing that separates the magic from the rest of the seasons is recognizing when you have that something special and making the most out of it. We've failed to do that now and I can't feel like we're going to look back on this year and say "what if" for a while. We lose A LOT next year, it's probably going to be another rough couple years until the next crop matures and can put it together again. The thing that makes legendary teams in the Pac is being able to handle each moment and capitalize on them, we've lost hold of a couple moments and now this year will be a good one, instead of a great one. Just my opinion.

    Watching Goff and Kesler move through progressions when their first option isn't open makes me so jealous. Amazing what happens when a QB doesn't stare down his WR's.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-10-31 14:11:58

    Probably my biggest gripe with Wilson, he is utterly incapable of seeing that his first option is covered and making the adjustment necessary to see his second or third option. He either forces the ball to his first interception (see: all 3 INT's against USC) or he tucks and runs.

    For all the times we talked about Whitt out-coaching Saban in the Sugar Bowl he just got the book written about how to be out-coached. THOROUGHLY dominated in every facet.

    Every single time they showed Whitt on the sideline he had this look on his face like he absolutely no fucking clue what to do. I've never seen him look so clueless before, he had zero answers for anything USC did.

    Pretty crazy that Cal hangs with us on the road and then looks like absolute road-kill at UCLA. Meanwhile UCLA has lost pretty much every one of their best players from each unit, gets smashed two weeks in a row, and is absolutely dominating Cal.

    Gotta love BSPN's bull$#!+ Drive Show and FPI rankings, they rank Utah lower because the math gives us a 3% chance of winning the conference AND our REMAINING schedule is ranked 38th.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-10-18 12:46:55

    So basically it ignores the things we've done up to this point and ranks us 5th because it thinks we have a lower chance of winning our conference and because the rest of our schedule is weaker. The FPI rankings are a complete and utter joke.

    Just win, Utes, fuck these "expert" assholes.

    It warms my heart to read r/CFB and see the Utes #1 and a boatload of haters questioning that ranking after a "terrible"/"lucky"/"fluke"/"overrated" win against Cal. After last week (and everyone singing all the Ute praises) I felt weird.

    I hope Pease and Co work on the pick play defense, that $#!+ was pissing me off all game.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-10-12 10:50:50

    This is an area a football player can learn a thing or two from a soccer play, recognizing when a shitty play is coming and making an absolute MEAL out of it. Whitt needs to teach the defenders to see a pick play coming, recognize the decoy receiver, and if you are being picked to run full force into that WR and make an absolute show out of all the contact. If you're getting picked off throw your freaking arms in the air, hit that WR, hell even try stumbling and flopping. Cal picked up huge chunks of yards with illegal pick plays and our guys just tried to work around those picking WR's or they even stopped and tried to pass off the WR to a deeper DB/Safety. If the offense is going to use an pick play then the defense has to use the same shady tactics to turn the tables back, even if it includes flopping like a fish to exaggerate contact.

    For the team this bye week couldn't have come at a better time.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-09-27 10:52:21

    The high of coming off a win like last night's is ridiculous, outside the Sugar Bowl win I can't think of a bigger win for the Utes in recent memory. Beating a highly ranked Stanford at home is close, but this was a whole other level of awesome. In a world of "what have you done for me lately" college football that win is going to propel the Utes into the stratosphere. Which is fine, but often a recipe for distraction and disaster. Next up is another team that loves to let it fly and has been playing pretty damn well this year, Cal.

    Utes now get an extra week to come down off the high, settle back into the routine, get some key players healthy, and get focused on Cal. They'll get one more week of game tape prep for the Bears and time to install a specific gameplan for a team that isn't so far different from Oregon's. It's nice to have played Oregon before playing Cal, we won't have to shift gears so dramatically, Cal loves to air it out and go go go.

    If Cal doesn't shit the bed against WSU we could have another top-20 matchup, god I love playing in the Pac-12.

    While we're on the subject of things that grind your gears, I just have to call out the inordinate amount of idiot joggers/runners in this city....

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-07-05 19:36:39

    One thing that REALLY pisses me off that I see a TON of here, pedestrians who like to run in the bike lanes thinking they are "tracks" for them to jog in so they don't have to run on the sidewalks. I even see A LOT of joggers/runners running in the bike lanes AGAINST traffic. They aren't fucking jogging tracks, idiots, they are lanes for vehicles. Stay out of them, pedestrians belong on the sidewalks, you're just increasing the chances that you'll either be hit by a cyclist or a cyclist will have to swerve into traffic in order to avoid your dumbass and potentially get hit by a car. I don't know why it's such a popular thing to do here, maybe it's just a lack of experience with bike lanes from SLC citizens. I see this almost as much as cyclists running stop signs/lights. So if you're a runner who does this or knows runners who like to do this, tell them to PLEASE stop running in the bike lanes.

    How on earth did USC jump us in the final AP poll? Seriously, makes absolutely zero sense.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-13 10:31:40

    One last thing to bitch about with college football this season, I can't figure this out in my head. We curb stomped our bowl opponent while USC eaked out a close win over theirs, neither opponent was that good, neither finished ranked. We actually beat USC head to head AND had the tougher schedule while finishing with the same record.

    It's one spot, in the end, but the AP rankings continue to defy logic. Next year should be interesting, it definitely doesn't get any easier.

    Coach K isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-08 16:12:25

    Jesus, get a grip people, we're not losing this guy for a long time. MAYBE if a top NBA job came calling or one of a half dozen college jobs came calling. Literally there are probably 6 or so college jobs more attractive to a coach like Larry these days, Duke, NC, Kansas, Syracuse, Indiana, and maybe Louisville. He's not going to go to a run of the mill NBA team, he's already coached for 2 average NBA teams (Bucks and Nets) and didn't have a great deal of success doing so. He's not going to go coach for any other college team because they're lateral moves at best.

    Larry K can make money here now that the U is getting full shares of the Pac-12 revenue. If the U really wants to keep him they can pretty much offer any max contract value that Larry could get coaching in the NCAA.

    Finally, what Larry has done was take a program that was in the dumpster and turned them into a LEGIT top-10 team in 3 years. Out west there is exactly one team that is better than the Utes now (and that may be changed in a few weeks once we play them), Arizona. Why go to another P5 conference or higher tier school when you have a program that can now compete for Pac-12 championships, get NCAA bids, and hopefully go deep in the tourney on a regular basis? What am I missing? Unless he has personal reasons he's not going to find a more suitable college coaching position in terms of obtaining the highest goals of this sport. Winning conference championships (P5 conference no less, while not as important as football, is the top of mountain) and having great tournament success on a regular basis is now readily reasonable expectations and out west he is going to have a great chance to do so every year.

    Why leave this situation unless something horrible happens or he personally loses interest? If Larry really wants to he can make Utah into the premier college basketball school in the west. He's built a monster, now he needs to prove he can win in the tourney, then he needs to prove he can do it over several years. What will this team look like when our best players graduate or move on? Can he keep the high level of consistency? These are questions that can motivate Kodiak to stay at Utah and keep winning. We have the facilities, we have the conference affiliation, we have the money, we have the access, we have the history, what else is there?

    A-rod and Scalley? REALLY?! Put some fucking effort into it, jesus, you're a damn Pac-12 head coach with a top-20 team. Wonder if he just walked into the conference room with all the coaches and asked them "what number am I thinking? Closest two to the actual numbers get to be coaches of the offense and defense."

    More of the same, a dead last offense in the conference and a stout defense that probably gets a lot of input from the head coach.

    Regardless of what happens, the U needs to hire a PR manager of some kind to get out ahead of these shitstorms caused by dumbass media hacks trying to stir the pot. It sucks that all this happened over the holidays and it's a sure bet that most of the people who could have snuffed out the fires were away with family. Lord knows the media trolls have nothing better to do than write 120 letter tweets without any substance or backing what-so-ever.

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-12-07 16:39:53

    How strange is that? We start the season hoping to just get bowl eligible with one of the toughest schedules in the country. We have a pretty good year, defense carries us to 8 wins, we knock off some good teams like USC, UCLA, Stanford (I refuse to list Michigan here, they were bad this year, even if it was in the Big House), finish #22 in the rankings....and all I can feel like is we just got kicked in the nuts. How hilarious, after all those years using things like the "BCS graveyard" as motivational things, talking about how pussy shit it was for BCS teams to say "oh we didn't want to be there", and how big it is for our programs history to be knocking off those guys in big bowls. Now we're on the other end.

    Time to pay the karma piper? I don't know. I just find it kind of funny. Vegas is a lousy bowl, it always has been, even when we were fighting for the top of the MWC. But it's relatively close, relatively cheap to get to, and it's a chance to see the Utes play another football game in 2014. I'm indifferent about CSU and quite honestly I have absolutely no idea what they'll bring to the game.

    I hope it's in that order, that precise order, who gives a $#!+ about tougher fans, they aren't the ones on the field throwing or catching the football...

    We aren't even close to the worst offense in college football, thankfully Booker single handedly saved us from that distinction this year. But a Whitt coached team will never have the offense to win the Pac-12.

    There was a spider on that UCLA player's jersey, he was just trying to brush it off him. Unfortunately for the UCLA player he missed, hopefully the UCLA player got bit and he gets some nasty reaction to it.

    Pattersen's got some balls, should have kicked the PAT. He had him open in the endzone, though, could have won it.

    The early game has thrown me for a loop, not used to having so much football on after our game. Still have Cal vs Stanford not even to half yet and this TCU vs UO game is coming down to the wire.

    This is the exact line of thought that will result in us never winning a Pac-12 championship. It's settling for mediocrity even if you don't think about it that way.

    The bull$#!+ thing to think is that we're the only team suffering from injuries. They happen to everyone and teams that just beat us handily have had way more than us.

    Yes, that is true, but it takes solid coaching and a good offense to put these kids in the right situation. Rich donors and fancy facilities don't throw the ball.

    We fired a longtime, long loved by fans, coach who took utah to new heights and built a ton of good will. Hired an east coast guy who knew nothing about the Utes or the state who in 2 seasons took the Utes to an undefeated BCS bowl season.

    No doubt, I can't believe a better offensive coach would have gotten more out of him and his athleticism, plus coach all the crap mechanics out of him.

    This loss isn't on Williams, he had less than a week of reps as the starter, the second fumble was on TW. This loss rests on the fact that we have a one-dimensional offense...

    I'm not convinced we would have scored TD's if we had not fumbled in those situations, we had failed to up to that point, why would have that changed? Another 2 FG's would have put us at 15-17, for instance.

    I'd be interested in taking a flyer on Dan Mullen, not sure how much of an upgrade he'd be over Whitt, though, might be more of "like for like"

    The end all stat at the end of the game is scoring more points than your opponent. Scoring 9 points at home is flat out not good enough and unless we're playing some FCS/G5 crap team won't win many games.

    I'm proud of Utah as well, I'll always be a Ute fan, but that doesn't change the facts. And Colorado hasn't been a competitive team in 15 years, they're a shadow of their glory teams in the 90's-early 00's.

    Nope, no idea what game that guy was watching, Browning was killing us. Gaskin had a few good runs, but Browning was responsible for most of their offense.

    Maybe if the dumbass ref would have ruled the previous play down inbounds like it actually was it would have never happened. Sucks to lose a player on the last play of the game, a totally meaningless play.

    Our offense likes to get in our own way, it's a frustrating habit. When the entire college football world knows you should run with one of the best RB's in the country, you don't take a shot at the endzone and underthrow your WR.
    (23 days ago, 3 stars)

    If your definition of a good QB is to be absolutely mediocre in every category, make horrible decision throwing the ball, and being ok running with it than I guess he's a good QB.

    If Utah's defense can't generate turnovers I'll be concerned, 2 straight games now with 0 turnovers generated. We need TO's to flip field position and put an aggressive D on it's heels.

    (29 days ago, 0 stars)

    Which is fine, you can look at your +/- stats and I'll look at the stats I want to look at. The stats, again, point to us having a really great defense and a mediocre to bad offense and a good ST's. The combination of which has lead to a 7-1 record.
    (29 days ago, 0 stars)

    Looking at conference only stats, we're 5th in scoring offense, 9th in total offense (yards/game), 2nd in scoring defense, 1st in overall defense (yards allowed/game)
    (29 days ago, 0 stars)

    Utes are 8th in the conference in points per game, but 2nd in scoring defense which helps the scoring difference stat. We're 10th in total offense per game, 10th in yards per play, 10th in TD's

    Being good at one thing, shooting the ball a ton, and not having great success in the tourney does not make you a legend. Plenty of guys in college have scored a ton of points and had much better college careers.

    That's the sad thing, though, at 7-1 and in this conference we SHOULD be in the conversation for the playoff. Teams don't go undefeated in this conference, that's a given, but 1 loss teams should be in the conversation.
