    Damn, the SEC is running the gauntlet this weekend:

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2014-11-20 17:52:17

    Florida is trying to match Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech by beating Eastern Kentucky.

    Georgia is playing Charleston Southern who just held off Liberty last week 38-36.

    The fake USC is 24.5 favorites at home to mighty Southern Alabama.

    Alabama looks to beat the Western Carolina Catamounts whom they have outscored 153-6 over the past 3 meetings.

    14th ranked Auburn takes on Samford and Son and will surely move up in the polls with a win.

    Bowl projections

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2014-11-03 13:05:01

    CBS: Sun vs. Louisville
    Reign of Troy blog: Holiday vs. Iowa
    Scout: Cactus vs. Oklahoma State
    National Football Post: Vegas vs. Boise
    ESPN Schlabach: Holiday vs. Minnesota
    ESPN McMurphy: Holiday vs. Nebraska

    It obviously depends on how we finish the year: The bowls that have Utah in the Vegas or Cactus bowl have us finishing behind USC, UCLA, both Arizona Schools and Stanford.

    If we win 4/4 its either Rose (playoff) or Alamo (most likely Alamo).

    If we win 3/4 It's Alamo, Holiday, or San Francisco (most likely Holiday)

    If we win 2/4 it's San Francisco, Sun, Vegas, or Cactus (depends on who we beat)

    If we win 0 or 1 more its Vegas or Cactus.

    How the Country roots for College football-by Zipcode.

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2014-10-18 11:19:09

    Interesting map:

    http://nyti.ms/1CIhun0

    Like the other sets of maps, these were created using estimates of team support based on each team’s share of Facebook “likes” in a ZIP code. We then applied an algorithm to deal with statistical noise and fill in gaps where data was missing. Facebook “likes” are an imperfect measure, but as we’ve noted before, Facebook likes show broadly similar patterns to polls.


    Looking at the State of Utah, the Utes are dominant. In the 4 zip codes (all Utah County) where BYU is more popular, the ratio is about 2.5-1. There are 3 zip codes in Utah county where they are 2-1, and 3 more where they are 1.5-1. That's it.

    In Salt Lake County, Utah is 4-1 (maybe closer to 5-1) across the board. Up North (except Cache county) it's about 3-1 Utes across the board, and the rest of the state is about 2-1 Utes.

    I along with some others posted on here in May about how we did at the Ogden Marathon. For me, it was a huge disappointment, falling 24 minutes short of my goal time (3:10) and qualification for the Boston Marathon. After that race, I decided to

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2014-10-06 11:55:13

    go all in on the training. For 18 consecutive weeks, I ran on average 60 miles a week. This included 14-15 mile runs every Tuesday morning (at 5 AM before work), 8-11 milers every Thursday morning, and long runs every Saturday; all over 18 miles (5 over 20 miles). All with one goal in mind: 3:10 or faster at the St. George Marathon.

    So I laced them up on Saturday morning nervous as hell. Thought I had a good chance based on how well the training went and the Top of Utah Half Marathon I ran in August (1:27). I also knew the full marathon distance is a completely different animal and it was going to be very tough.

    Race started out well, the first 7 miles at St. George are mostly downhill and pretty fast. Averaged about 6:40 per mile for miles 1-7. First test came at Mile 8 (the Veyo hill). It is a fucking monster. Focused on keeping the heart rate down, but the pace suffered greatly (8:05). To make things worse, started to feel tiredness in the legs.

    Miles 9-13 continued as a slow climb. Based on my training, I knew my legs could recover if I stayed calm. Got through this tough stretch averaging 7:15’s; slower than expected but still on track for a 3:10 thanks to the fast early miles. Hit the halfway point in 1:32.

    I don’t remember miles 14-18, but they were solid splits; 7:02, 6:40, 6:40, 6:53, 6:51. Trouble came at 19; some unexpected uphills led to a 7:36. At mile 20, I was absolutely exhausted. Convinced myself that 7:30’s from here on out would get it done, but didn’t know how I was going to do it. Just kept running.

    Managed a 7:12 for mile 20, but it was tough. Then came a giant series of downhills at 21. Not only did I run a 6:43, but was able to stop at back to back aid stations, take a quick drink and catch my breath.

    At 22, I knew I had to run four 8 minute miles to close this thing out on time. Thought it was going to happen if I just held on. Ran 7:31 and 7:11 miles before entering St. George from the parkway. 2 miles still left but I felt like death and heart rate was through the roof.

    Finally made it around the final corner and saw the finish line in the distance. Looked for my family but couldn’t find them. Then I heard a large roar in the crowd and knew it was them (about 15 of them made the trip). Ran to the other side of the road for high fives, then back to the middle of the road and the finish line: 3:06:40.

    Immediately felt light headed when I crossed the line. I just stood there, hunched over for a minute or two with one of the volunteers. Stumbled to the shower and just stood there, soaking.

    Slowly walked over to the fence-line (with a volunteer holding me up) where my family was at. More high fives, hugs, and a very loud singing of Happy Birthday (Saturday was my 37th), with family members, volunteers, and even a couple strangers. Truly a great moment.

    The only player from the State of Utah to win Rookie of the year? Damian Lillard.

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2013-05-01 22:14:59

    4th player ever to be a unanimous selection.

    During his rookie year he broke Stephen Curry’s NBA rookie record for three-pointers in a season, knocking down 185 three-pointers on the year, which is also a new Trail Blazers franchise record for most three-pointers in a season. It was also the fifth most threes in the league this season. He was named the Kia Western Conference Rookie of the Month in each month during the season, becoming the eighth player to sweep the monthly awards.

    He joined Oscar Robertson and Allen Iverson as the only rookies in NBA history to record 1,500 points and 500 assists in a season. He scored 30 or more points five times during the year, including a career-high 38 against the Los Angeles Lakers in April.

    Sean Smith may not be a Dolphin for long:

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2013-02-23 14:10:22

    A source close to free agent cornerback Sean Smith laughed when asked if Smith and the Dolphins have had productive contract talks at the Combine. Smith is seeking a contract worth at least $24 million guaranteed over three years, and the Dolphins don’t value him that highly. The Dolphins might use the franchise tag to keep him around, but defensive tackle Randy Starks seems like the likelier option.
    Don’t rule out the transition tag, either, which gives the Dolphins the right to match any other free agent offer Smith receives.


    Either way, Sean is going to get paid big over the next few years which is good to see.

    2013-02-19 11:50:10

    The only items that are important:
    1. The 49ers want to trade Smith.
    2. Smith would rather be released and become a free agent.

    5 Myths regarding the situation:

    1. The 49ers are eager to have both Colin Kaepernick and Smith on the roster in 2013.
    2. There's a weak trade market for Smith.
    3. Smith was a free agent last season and there was no market for him.
    4. The 49ers owe it to Smith to release him.
    5. Teams will be reluctant to trade for Smith because his salary is prohibitive.

    Some good news: former Ute Mike McCoy is a hot commodity and is expected to land a Head Coaching job this week.

    by Section10Row51Ute
    2013-01-13 09:33:50

    Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he's hearing the Cardinals are expected to go after Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their head-coaching vacancy.
    When asked which of the head coach jobs would be filled next, Rapoport said he believes it will be the Cardinals. He also said if Arizona can't land McCoy, whose Broncos were just eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday, then incumbent defensive coordinator Ray Horton could be the backup plan. McCoy is expected to be a hot commodity on the market this upcoming week.

    The in-game experience and marketing for football is also better at BYU than at Utah. They actually have a decent sound system and their video production looks professional.

    Agreed. Whit isn't Michigan's first choice, so they aren't going to back up the Brinks truck to hire him. Any offer they make, Utah should be able to match. If Utah wasn't in the PAC-12, we'd be screwed.

    Worrying about INT's and making mistakes consumed Wilson this year and made him far less effective. When Wilson took more chances at the end of a couple close games-namely USC and Stanford, he was far more successful. The coaches had to open up

    I'd rather have a QB Coach that is more interested in attacking the Defense instead of worrying about making mistakes.

    B.S. Utah finished ranked ahead of USC who is in the Holiday Bowl. We got screwed and since I'm not playing in the game, I can say the Vegas Bowl sucks ass and I hate the opponent.

    Early in the year the committee had 3 SEC teams in the top 4. Based on what the teams had accomplished at the time, it was the correct choice. They were torched for it. So far, the committee has done a good job and hasn't caved to popular opinion.
    (167 days ago, 0 stars)

    The committee doesn't care about name brands or ratings. Case in point: the early rankings that favored the SEC. If they pick OSU it's because they played a CCG.
    (167 days ago, 1 stars)

    Silver's numbers don't account for the fact that the committee may give a big FU to the Big 12 for not having a Conference Championship game.

    I'll take getting burned on the occasional misdirection play as a result of the Defense being overagressive. Can't be perfect on every play.

    Sorry man, but you are wrong. Utah should try and grow the fanbase as much as possible. More money=more success. And every fanbase has it's fair share of dweebs.

    Gameday would be a huge deal for our players and potential recruits.

    That would be disappointing and probably means we lose at least one more game. San Antonio, San Diego, and San Francisco are far better destinations.

    ASU's defense looks solid so far. Notes Dame like Utah can't handle the blitz.

    I think it is. The Alamo Bowl would be the 3rd best bowl Utah has ever played in behind the Sugar and Fiesta. We'd be playing a team like Oklahoma, West Virginia, or Baylor.
    (200 days ago, 0 stars)

    The difference between ASU winning out or losing one game would probably be the difference between the Alamo and the San Francisco/Sun Bowl for Utah.
