    First time since the end of last season I've seen the lights on at RES from my work....we're getting close, I can't wait. Election season has numbed me, the long RSL season has ground me down, time for something new.

    Football is here, pretty soon we'll be feeling the crisp fall air, the heat will relent, and gameday excitement will be there to pull us through the day-to-day grind of the work week.

    17 more days!

    Sometimes I wish I could just be a weird mountain man hermit and just live up there, so nice to get out of the heat and have a place like this only 60-90 minutes away.

    Shot from Moosehorn Lake, the other lakes in the area were slammed with people, glad they had the campground at Moosehorn closed so nobody was there.

    Probably the best part about this state is that whenever I get sick and tired of all the bull$#!+ I can pack up my crap, drive an hour or two in any direction, and do stuff like this

    Taken last weekend up on the Provo River 15 miles past Kamas, it's damn cold in the middle of the night this time of year, but it's awesome being able to get out of the city do astrophotography so easily. There's not many places in this country where you can do stuff like this, nor is it possible in most places to pick a direction from a major city, drive an hour or two, and end up in any number of different geographies. Hour east and you're in the Uintas, hour west and your on the salt flats, hour north and you're in farmland, couple hours south and you're in amazing desert. Kind of funny actually, when I was a kid my family used to go down to Goblin Valley every Easter, we'd have egg hunts among the sandstone formations and it was always an awesome time. Planned a trip down there next weekend, haven't been since Easter some 17 years ago.

    All I'll say is at this point the beauty contest is over. Win. Just win. Any way you can just make sure you have more points on the scoreboard than your opponent at the end of the game.

    Just saw the ratings for the national championship game last night, 25.7 million total, a 25% decrease from last year. Overall it was an ABYSMAL bowl season for tv ratings, Rose Bowl had it's worst EVER.

    by PDXUtefan
    2016-01-12 21:57:33

    The rhetoric in this article is pretty strong and it's very short on actual ideas for causes and fixes, but the take home point is valid:

    http://www.foxsports.com/college-football /story/cfb-playoff-year-2-alabama-crimson- tide-clemson-tigers-national-title-ratings -rose-bowl-011216

    The bowl season is broken, it's plainly obvious to anyone who digs past the surface. It's truly become a facade and a pointless end to the college football season. Too many lousy teams are given opportunities to play one extra game. I personally believe we have the BCS system to blame for this, too many teams felt like they were getting screwed year after year thanks to the bogus BCS rankings and it spawned a system of "well, we'll just make another bowl and try to squeeze a few extra bucks from the whole system". Way too many bowl games anymore and if the tv ratings keep declining like they are expect that seemingly endless well of money to dry up.

    So what's going to happen? I expect in the next 5 years we'll see a couple things. First will be an expansion of the playoff to 8 teams, the chatter is already there about teams getting left out (even though the Pac-12 canablized itself this year a STRONG argument for Stanford's inclusion was made after they throttled Iowa and then MSU/Oklahoma laid absolute eggs in their games). Plenty of money is being made off the playoff itself and more exciting matchups will keep tv ratings relatively high. Second, there will be a trimming of the bowl game fat and hard minimum requirements for teams to go bowling. A number of bowl games need to be axed and no more lax rules allowing shitty 5-7 teams to make it. In fact I'd like to see more minimum requirements for 6-6 teams to be filtered, perhaps a minimum graduation rate or team GPA. If you're team is struggling to make grades and graduate players then why are earth kids going to be spending more time away from the classroom during finals? Want to go to a bowl game? Graduate your kids and make sure they are all passing classes.

    Just some thoughts.

    A small bit of irony, the last Chiefs playoff victory came a few decades ago in Houston with some guy named Joe Montana.....who was traded away by the 9ers in favor of a younger, flashier QB.

    by PDXUtefan
    2016-01-09 17:38:20

    If only Krapernick was a fraction of the player Young was, but it is funny that the Chiefs get back in the playoff win column with another former 9ers QB.

    Cool picture of the stealth bomber flyover before kickoff of the Rose Bowl

    2016-01-05 16:59:03

    Every single time I watch the Rose Bowl and see that bomber fly over I get chills, don't know why, but it just looks so cool.

    Also, someone had posted that Stanford fans were lousy at traveling and the stadium appeared to be 70% Iowa fans and 30% Furd fans before kickoff. Pretty much puts that to rest, looks the opposite of that, actually, 70% Furd fans and 30% Iowa fans.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Trump and Republicans love to pile on to Clinton for being a part of the Wall Street problem (and she is), so what does he do? Goes out and hires a bunch of Wall Street guys to be his "economic advisers".

    Silver addressed this in a very long article on his site, his site's early forecasting for Trump wasn't based on a statistical model, but his Polls-cast model during the actual Primary voting correctly predicted 91% of the State Primary votes.

    The Fox News national poll released yesterday that had Clinton +9 was very damaging for Trump, that's for sure. Getting crushed like that on the Republican's biggest media outlet was not a good sign for Trump.

    Huh? They do have access to NEJM, I'm just talking in general, there's been times I've tried to access articles in random journals that I can't because of pay walls.

    The beauty of being on the U's school of Medicine network is that it auto logs you into journals, but the U doesn't have access (or pays subscription fees) for every journal. So I'm SOL on some of them.

    And? That doesn't mean those people wouldn't have representation in the form of Senators and Representatives elected by them. Elections should reflect the voting will of the people, regardless of what state or cities they live in.

    And yet how many examples have we seen of elected delegates voting not for the popular choice? We are a country of the people, right? So why is it that we've had presidential nominees not win the White House despite winning the popular vote?
