    I played city league basketball with one of his sons in Jr. High and had the chance to speak with him on a handful of occasions. 10 plus years down the road I'd bump in to him at the store and he remembered my name and stopped to talk to me. God bless, Todd and family.

    After Oregon is UCLA the second toughest team we will face this year?

    From what I've seen I think the road to the PAC-12 South runs through them. Not that we have any other pushovers on our schedule but I think they present a lot of challenges and will be a tougher matchup than Stanford athletically.

    SLTrib story on Aaron Alford's death

    by _Phil_Indablank_
    2013-08-12 15:11:41

    Former Utah assistant coach Aaron Alford dies of apparent heart attack

    Looks like he was working at a center helping out troubled youth and also gearing up to be an Assistant Head Football Coach at Park City High School.

    The latest bio on the U's site says he had 3 children.

    Lya's blog post with quotes from Coach Alford on his new job and quotes from former players.

    In addition to assisting the Park City Miners this year, Alford was helping run the New Beginnings Behavioral Treatment Agency in West Jordan.

    Alford told the Park Record working at the center for youths with troubled home lives was just a new form of coaching.

    "It's my God-given talent," he said.

    Normally a quiet, soft-spoken man off the field, Alford will be remembered for his easy-going attitude and friendly smiles, certainly "one of the good guys."

    Spring Game Thoughts

    by _Phil_Indablank_
    2013-04-22 11:08:47

    As others have previously noted, I was surprised at the way the OL manhandled the DL. Lot's of exciting new faces on the OL: Salt, Lozano, Asiata, and others.

    I was surprised how well we ran the ball. Poole looked good. I loved the pass to the RB out of the backfield. Lucky seemed to have a case of butterfingers; hope he gets that corrected because he is an exciting player.

    Brian Allen looks like he could have some big potential. I liked seeing McClellon. Scott should have a huge year, looking for big things out of Dres, too.

    On the D Masina looked good. We were definitely missing Rowe and a bunch of other starters. Also hard to tell much with plays being blown dead and touch counting as a tackle on the QB.

    And don't get off the phone until they've given you at least a $20/month discount for the next year.

    If you're going to wait and see, you might as well save some bucks in the process, while hitting them in the pocketbook at the same time.
