    So... I'm confused. ESPN never makes mistakes, right?

    Check this ESPN PAC-12 Blog post out: LINKY LINKY

    Chantel Jennings says... and I quote:

    Michigan is in a state of flux -- losing its quarterback (Devin Gardner), top receiver (Devin Funchess) and top defensive player (Jake Ryan) from the 2014 season. Utah has had a few significant losses as well -- Nate Orchard, Travis Wilson, Kaelin Clay and Dres Anderson just to name a few.


    Is something going on? Is this a conspiracy?

    Well y'all, when I wake up in the morning it'll be 1/2 way through this hell otherwise known as "recovery", and in 3 weeks I'll be able to walk on my right leg again. Thanks for helping keep me sane so far.

    It is so interesting seeing how some of my friends and family react to the whole 50 Shades of Grey thing, especially given things I know about them. Some are just as hypocritical about this book as they can be about books of scripture, I swear.

    You know why LOI day is such a big deal?

    by leftyjace
    2015-02-04 17:21:38

    This is a day of excitement! We get to see a bunch of great kids and athletes that WANT to come to Utah and play football in our stadium!

    I know it's really not all that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, what with us doing as great as we do without the 4 and 5 star athletes all the time. I get that. It's still so amazing to me that we can do as well as we've done in the past with 2 and 3 star athletes. Just goes to show how great our coaching staff and culture is at the U.

    But what's SO neat is to see highly touted athletes committing to come here! They're stoked! They're ecstatic! How can you NOT get excited about that, even if they don't end up panning out or something happens later on down the road???

    So enjoy the day for what it is - a day of fun and excitement!

    GO UTES!!!!

    Micro fracture surgery on a couple of spots on my right femur. Medical advances are SO COOL! I won't need a knee replacement until much later. But... This recovery period will be hard, and I have stairs in my house. Luckily I have a neighbor gal who needs some extra cash that can come service me. Plus I can work from home. I love technology...

    BUT THIS IS STILL GONNA SUCK.

    by leftyjace
    2015-01-15 14:50:14

    KW and CH are going to forego hiring coordinators for next season. Kyle will serve as Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator-by-proxy, and both men are hoping that Dennis Erickson recognizes there's a void that needs to be filled prompting him to just DO THE JOB.

    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, Ill go offense. A running back were not talking much about is Utahs Devontae Booker. There are only five backs in the conference averaging more than 100 yards per game, and Booker is one of them. Hes only got four rushing touchdowns, but hes 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.

    Back at you. And you, sir, are definitely not a bully.
    (25 days ago, 3 stars)

    I red star some of my own posts, and I red star a fair amount of yours. Does that make me a star whore, or does that mean I believe in the principles of self pleasure and free love? Discuss.
    (25 days ago, 6 stars)

    Oh, I've seen it. I stand by my statement. I take it you would move Kate Upton higher on the list?

    I don't mind giving you a crack at them when I'm done in a few days. Or weeks.

    What about going up the stairs? I'm not a small man. I can't jump like I used to.
    (28 days ago, 0 stars)

    So you guys recommend the hand on the rail, 1 foot jump method?
    (28 days ago, 0 stars)

    Mini fridge in place. A walker on each floor. Crutches for the stairs. And neighbor girl helping out.

    No, but I did pour bear on it.

    6 weeks. No bearing weight on my right leg. This is gonna suck. Luckily I have all of you to silently observe. That will keep me entertained.

    I didn't mention forgetting to renew my tickets. I mentioned forgetting to make a seating request. Besides these days if I forgot to renew them, do you really think I'd still have season tickets?
    (36 days ago, 2 stars)

    Has anybody heard when we can renew our Season Tix in Football? I definitely don't want to forget making a seating request.

    I'm hearing that senior management at The Trib are finally starting to consider "making a change" with Monson. Apparently his loose cannon methodology has worn thin with not only the readers but his peers as well.

    I know there are many that are worked into a frenzy, but we have no influence on how things will end up. While events are within our circle of concern, they are not in our circle of influence. Therefore...
    (63 days ago, 3 stars)

    Was Dennis Erickson in his circle of trust?
    (64 days ago, 1 stars)

    The more I think about it the more he doesn't do it for me either. The combination of his lack of success as a head coach at Ole Miss combined with his screwing the pooch against UCLA in the biggest game of his coaching career make me hesitant.
    (64 days ago, 0 stars)

    True. Definitely more appealing to have an offensive-minded head coach this time around. But you have to wonder how much of his success is due to Mariota, and how much is on his own skill.
    (64 days ago, 1 stars)

    OK, let's say the sky does fall and KW is gone. Why is no one talking about Orgeron as a HC candidate? Not a big enough name? Thoughts?

    So worth it to stay up and watch, even though I'm on the east coast this week. Today I will proudly wear the drum and feather as I travel back home to SLC. What a game.

    Nevermind, answered my own question. According to ESPN, paid attendance was 45,824. Another sellout!
    (96 days ago, 3 stars)

    Last thing on the attendance... and this is a question I'm seriously just curious about... what was the announced attendance? Was it a sellout, even with a lot of people not showing up?
    (96 days ago, 0 stars)

    Alter Bridge is my workout band. They are amazing. If you like their stuff, you should check out Tremonti's solo project work. This is my favorite single by him/them right now...
