    His youngest child is in high school. Can you imagine being as family oriented as he is and moving his child in the middle of high school years?

    As long as things are going good here, I just don't see him picking up and leaving.

    Yes it was miserable yesterday, but I dressed for a blizzard just in case and ended up using everything I brought. I have yet to be at RES with some sort of rain or snowfall where it was NOT miserable. So glad I didn't risk it.

    The game sucked, the weather was horrible, and yet despite all of that I was able to still have an enjoyable day spending quality time with my son.

    I love that we have a great, improving football team representing my alma mater! Love the stadium, love the spirit, love the passion and emotional investment of my fellow fans!

    And guess what??? We have a chance to go 8-4 and go to a bowl game this year. 8-4!!!! At the beginning of the season I remember feeling like I was being overly optimistic hoping for 6-6 and a bowl game.

    Whatever happens I'm happy with this season. I look forward to hitting the road and cheering on the UTES at whatever bowl we end up playing. And I look forward to next season's home schedule, which is going to be AWESOME!!!!!

    Cheer up, everybody!! Go UTES!!!!!!!!!

    How a kid who wore BYU gear in his childhood family pictures is now a die-hard UTE

    by leftyjace
    2014-10-31 06:54:00

    Though born in Utah, my family moved to central California when I was very, very young. My Dad became a tennis pro. I spent a lot of time at the club as a kid. People there (affluent, well-to-do) were understandably loyal to their various alma maters, and my Dad was no different. I used to wear BYU gear because my parents gave it to me - I didn't know much about any other schools, though I thought USC had cool uniforms and I watched the Rose Bowl every year. I remember being at the club in the lounge watching Danny Ainge's end-to-end layup to win in the NCAA tournament and cheering like crazy, while everyone around me looked stunned and wondered what was going on.

    As a young adult we moved back to Utah. I was active LDS and fell back into the rhythm of cheering for BYU until some significant family events happened that changed my outlook on life. I started growing up and began the process of "losing my faith". My high school experience was horrible and studies was not my focus. I graduated with a 2.7 GPA ("earning" two 0.0's my senior year), did so with 1/4 credit to spare, and didn't really complete any college prep courses.

    Married at 20 and a father at 23, I didn't start college until my son was born. I applied for SLCC and was accepted and started part-time coursework.

    A few years later, I started thinking about what I wanted to do and set my mind on graduating with a degree in Computer Science. Finding out that the U had a great program, I set my sights on transferring and getting accepted to the U. At this point my loyalties were ambiguous. I was, however, accepted as a CS major.

    After off-and-on part-time attendance, I switched my major to Economics (much easier for a non-traditional student to finish). After years of part-time attendance I finally realized I was in my late 30's and didn't have my degree yet, so I literally took a year off of work, took out a bazillion dollars in student loans to support my family, and went up to the U in 2007 to finish 48 semester hours in 3 semesters. I graduated with my B.S. in Economics in December 2007.

    To put it absolutely plainly, this was the first time I had attended an educational institution as an adult (or young adult) where I was able to enjoy the experience and start to appreciate my school. I can't explain what happened... I just... fell in love. The Union, the classes, the coursework, the instructors, the campus. Here I was, a late 30's student, hanging out with a bunch of traditional students, and I was accepted, respected, and included like I never was in High School. It was at this point that I really started cheering for the U.

    After graduating, the magical 2008-2009 season happened, and I followed very closely. I was then completely and utterly hooked on Utah football. I had somewhat followed basketball over the years, but it was football that turned me into a rabid Ute.

    I also applied for and was accepted to the U Executive MBA program, which I graduated from in 2011. A buddy in my class and I decided to get football season tickets that first year - ironically, the season before the PAC-12 announcement. (Good timing!)

    Now, here I am, a mid-40's dude, with two degrees from the University of Utah on my wall and football season tickets every year. I'm really close to pulling the trigger and ponying up for some basketball season tickets as well, and I find myself seeking out and watching the Utah volleyball team on the PAC-12 network whenever I can.

    The loyalty and love I feel for my school is hard to describe. I didn't know why people were such rabid and loyal fans until late in my adult life - and now I regret not taking part in the full college experience when I was younger. But given the circumstances, I feel like my experience was extremely rich and amazing. I am definitely a black sheep in my family - not only do I not cheer for BYU, but I'm also not active LDS any more. But I wouldn't change a thing and couldn't be happier... and at least my mom (and my dad, up until his death in 2012) got to the point where they would cheer for the U as long as they weren't playing BYU.

    The U changed my life. Completely changed my life. It wasn't so long ago that I was an adult with no degree, inconsistent income, and a lot of insecurity about my resume. Applying myself at the U changed all that. The quality of my life has changed in so many ways - not only income and employment prospects, but also self-confidence and security because I have two degrees from a great institution that no one can take away from me. Never again will people disregard my qualifications and experience simply because I didn't have anything substantial to put under "Education" on my resume.

    I have passed my fandom on to my children. Both my son and my daughter are big time U fans. I take my son to the majority of games with me. He's down at UVU right now in his sophomore year, but has intentions of applying to and graduating from the U Dental School.

    OK, that's a lot more than you wanted to know about me, but I've read some of the stories that were posted and they are oftentimes amazing, insightful, funny, and fun. Proud to be a member of such a wonderful brother/sister-hood of Utah fans and alumni.

    GO UTES!!!!!!

    So while reviewing the ESPN Pac-12 blog, I saw this...

    by leftyjace
    2014-10-17 00:18:30

    From this particular blog post: http://espn.go.com/blog/pac12/post/_/id/7 8742/a-6-pac-of-questions-for-week-8

    AND I QUOTE:

    6. Who is a breakout player to watch for the second half?

    Kevin Gemmell / @Kevin_Gemmell: Since Kyle went defense, I’ll go offense. A running back we’re not talking much about is Utah’s Devontae Booker. There are only five backs in the conference averaging more than 100 yards per game, and Booker is one of them. He’s only got four rushing touchdowns, but he’s averaging nearly six yards per carry and the Utes have done a nice job balancing out the offense. As the schedule stiffens, look for him to be an impact guy.


    Prophetic, no?

    Sadly, my son cannot go with me tonight. Normally I would find someone else to go with me, but I have a performance tonight at 9pm. I was going to risk being late to my performance so I could spend time with my son, but now that he's not going to go with me...

    Any takers? Willing to sell for face value ($45 each, total of $90 for the pair) or best offer. And you would need to meet me fairly close to West Jordan to get them.

    Next Season's Schedule

    by leftyjace
    2013-11-30 19:31:35

    Home:
    Idaho State
    Fresno State
    Arizona
    Oregon
    USC
    Washington State

    Away:
    Michigan
    Stanford
    UCLA
    Oregon State
    Arizona State
    Colorado

    Ouch. That away schedule is brutal. Unless we see major improvement somewhere... we could be facing a 5-7 season again... or worse.

    Not trying to be pessimistic, it's just that as I was looking at the schedule I realized what a gauntlet we've got next season, especially on the road.

    So what are everyone else's expectations for the team? Do you think we'll improve enough to do better than 5-7?

    We are right on line with Ted Miller's "Best Case Scenario" so far!

    by leftyjace
    2013-09-22 18:43:21

    Remember this?

    http://espn.go.com/blog/pac12/post/_/id/5 9659/best-case-worst-case-utah-3

    How he describes the first 4 games of the season:

    Utah whips Utah State and Weber State, then falls to No. 20 Oregon State. Travis Wilson throws four touchdown passes in a 35-20 win over BYU, the Utes' fourth consecutive win in the Holy War.


    Well, he got the score wrong, but the result was right...

    Then he goes on to describe our next game as follows:

    UCLA, however, pounds the Utes 33-17. Headline in Salt Lake Tribune: "Utah still not ready to compete in the Pac-12 South Division."


    Ya, if we lose to UCLA, I think that headline definitely happens. Cuz they're like that.

    Anyway...

    Then he goes on to predict wins against Stanford and Arizona before falling to USC. Then a win against Arizona State... followed by a loss to Oregon, a win against Washington State, and a win against Colorado.

    So, we're 1/4 of the way to making Ted Miller look clairvoyant. And I'll take the 8-4 record he predicts for us any day.

    (Not to mention his prediction of us whipping Texas..?... in the Holiday Bowl)

    So... serious question. I thought I observed an officiating error in the USC / USU game. It wasn't caught, so I'm wondering something.

    by leftyjace
    2013-09-21 16:57:36

    1. At the 5:43 mark of the game, Chuckie runs out of bounds. The clock stops.
    2. As USU is getting the play call in, the play clock runs down to 25 seconds.
    3. The game clock starts up again.
    4. At 5:30 (play clock at 12 seconds or so), they snap the ball.

    The end result was a loss of 12-13 seconds of game time.

    I have never played organized football, so I simply don't know the answer to my question, which is:

    Isn't there someone on the team (an assistant coach or an aide) that is supposed to be watching the clock so this type of thing doesn't happen?

    EDIT: Just so it's known, I rewinded the DVR and reviewed this to make sure that what I thought happened really happened.

    Through three games, Utah QB Travis Wilson is responsible for 12 touchdowns this season (7 pass, 5 rush), tied for second-most in the FBS behind Utah State’s Keaton (13). In 12 games (seven starts) last season, Wilson was responsible for just 11 touchdowns (7 pass, 4 rush).

    Happy Friday morning to you.
    First a word on the Utah-BYU controversy, some are blaming Utah for passing along to BYU the possibility of an NCAA violation by one of its athletes.
    Utah did nothing wrong in that action, it is common practice and seen as a courtesy between schools to alert one another if there is even a whiff that NCAA rules are being broken so the situation can be handled properly by the school involved as BYU evidently did by leveling a suspension.
    The passing of information from one school to another had nothing to do with the rivalry and everything to do with standard practice.

    OK, I just feel a need to be grateful.

    by leftyjace
    2013-09-15 10:57:13

    I'm not saying I have successfully avoided being crushed by last night's loss. I haven't. I'm still trying to process that. I'm disappointed. I'm fearful for the rest of the season. I'm terrified that we might give BYU a reason to brag for the next 2 years. And I'm fearful that we may not get into a bowl this year.

    But yesterday, in my preparations for heading up to RES, I was watching UCLA beat the pants off of Nebraska and one of those super-cool PAC-12 commercials came on screen. There live in color were highlights of Utah players, scattered amongst highlights of Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, Washington, and USC players.

    I had a moment.

    Think about it. Here we are, in our third PAC season, and it's STILL hitting me how fortunate we are to be in the PAC.

    Look at the AP rankings from this morning:

    2. Oregon
    5. Stanford
    13. UCLA
    17. Washington
    23. Arizona State

    That's a pretty good showing for the conference.

    Yes, our secondary is questionable. Yes, our quarterback threw three interceptions. Yes, we had some stupid, bonehead penalties. But Oregon State will always be competitive. Our offense is SO much better than it was last season. We're still good against the run. And we have a kicker again.

    Come on, gents. Remember how fortunate we are.

    Be grateful.

    Have love in your hearts.

    It could be worse. We could be independent.

    For those that didn't know...

    It's tonight at 7:30 (pregame, 8:00 kickoff) on beIN Sports. If you have the Comcast Sports Package, you have beIN Sports on channel 282. I don't know what it is on Dish/DirecTV.

    Couldn't sleep last night, so I took a drive... and ended up on campus.

    by leftyjace
    2013-08-27 09:56:26

    After swinging through Taco Bell for a Crunch Wrap Supreme at about 11:30pm, I found myself hopping on I-215 and taking the east loop up towards Foothill. The next thing I know, I'm turning in next to the institute and driving by the new business building.

    I basically took a little driving tour around campus... went down along South Campus past the stadium (2 DAYS!!!!), up along University, took a drive around President's Circle, went up to 1st So. and turned in so I could drive by the MEB, Union and the Alumni House, then eventually made my way back up to Wasatch.

    Campus was... dead quiet. No cars anywhere. And it was beautiful. Simply beautiful.

    I made my way back to Foothill and headed down the hill (and past the stadium - 2 DAYS!!!!!) towards the freeway and home, climbed into bed when I got there, and slept soundly. I don't know if it was the Crunch Wrap Supreme or the fact that I was calmed by being back up on campus briefly, but either way, it was a good thing.

    Went and saw it last night and.......... wow.

    Can't say much because ANYTHING you say about the movie or plot or ANYTHING will be a MAJOR spoiler.

    There are just so many tie-ins to the Trek canon, it's awesome. I debated some plot specifics with some friends before the movie came out, and my friends are going to be greatly surprised and astonished at a lot of what happens in this movie.

    If you are a trek fan of any amount... even miniscule... you will love this movie.

    And if you're not a trek fan, you won't get a lot of the "inside jokes" and references, but it should still be incredibly appealing.

    Still laughing about stuff this morning.

    Well, it stacks up like this.

    Records against BCS Schools

    2011 Season:
    Utah ==> 6-5
    BYU ==> 2-2

    2012 Season:
    Utah ==> 3-6
    BYU ==> 2-3

    TOTAL, 2011 & 2012 Seasons:
    Utah ==> 9-11 (.450 winning percentage)
    BYU ==> 4-5 (.444 winning percentage)

    Interesting.

    That work can be done by one person who works his ever loving tail off and doesn't have a ton of time to do anything he wants, let alone what you want. Patience is a virtue. Trust in the Monkey. It will get done eventually.

    Not all is doom and gloom today... USMNT just beat South Korea 2-0. Beckerman and Rimando played 90, and Gil got his first cap as a big boy for the last 15 minutes. Good match.

    After sleeping on it, I have realized that expending emotion until such time as we see the results of this hire is futile. Therefore my message to all the chicken littles out there is as follows...
    (363 days ago, 8 stars)

    An OC is not a HC. Seems to me he sure worked out as an OC. What didn't work out was him as a HC. Which he's not. Other than the affect on BJ and DE, what's bad about this hire?
    (364 days ago, 2 stars)

    I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    I don't get why everyone is saying Sitake is going to leave. Am I missing something? What does the OC situation have to do with the DC situation? Help a fellow Ute understand here.

    I dunno. This episode was a pretty big shock in a few different ways. The main character of Rick's group that died was one that I thought would continue on for some time. And the other main character I thought wouldn't die for a while either.

    :) Yes... though I am a Yankee fan, I do like to think myself somewhat... shall we say... detached... from another Yankee fan on this board. Not that I don't appreciate his Yankee fandom... but you get the idea.

    Have you all noticed how great our Volleyball team is doing? We beat #25 Arizona on Sunday. I've been meaning to head up there to a game. Perhaps it's time to do so!
    (417 days ago, 7 stars)

    Fair points. I hate to lend so much credence to an "we almost won" game or two though. Makes us sound like zoobs.
    (417 days ago, 2 stars)

    I think the win against Stanford got people excited. Let's say we lost to Stanford, but beat Arizona or USC. We'd have the same record, and people wouldn't be quite as disappointed. At least, that's what I think. Which doesn't mean much. :P

    This. He was also a Green Bay Packers fan (exhibited by his jacket), but he was there to rile people up and piss people off. He wasn't just cheering for his team, he was being ridiculous. Row 54, probably seat 20 or so.
    (440 days ago, 3 stars)

    Seconded. You guys in the NEZ were great. I was ashamed to look across at the empty seats on the W side and see fans still clinging to the bleachers on both sides of the seated sections. Frickin' fair weather corporate fans. Ugh.
    (441 days ago, 0 stars)

    Turnovers aside, this game was won and lost on the lines. UCLA's offensive line dominated, UCLA's defensive line dominated. We couldn't keep an edge to run around. We couldn't pressure. Poop.

    Oh, I totally get that. I don't question the decision, if anything agree with it. I'm just remarking at how deep the team is. We've seen each of these guys at one point of the season or another. It's just... they're playing a GREAT game.
    (447 days ago, 1 stars)

    Man, who ARE these guys??? This is RSL's 2nd team?? WOW. No wonder people are going after Kreis and Lagerway. This team is DEEP.
