    My letter to Dr. Hill with a CC to Gordon Monson

    by leftyjace
    2015-08-19 11:41:14

    Dr. Hill,

    Let me add my voice to the chorus of those chanting "No more BYU". It's just not worth it. I am a season ticket holder to both Utah football and basketball. I don't mind scheduling BYU for basketball, that tends to be a bit more tame. But football? I'm tired of the injuries and hostility especially when playing BYU doesn't do us any good in getting to the Rose Bowl. The rivalry was meaningful when it mattered to both teams. It doesn't matter to Utah now.
    The local media (one member of which is CC'd in on this e-mail) scream that the rivalry is needed and that the public wants it. I think they're wrong. I think the BYU fans want it, but most everyone that is a Utah fan could "take it or leave it". And if there's no real benefit (the games at RES will sell out anyway)... why are we playing them any more???
    The rivalry is over. Utah won. Let's grant it the death it deserves.

    If you go to the Salt Lake Tribune web site and hover over the "Sports" menu, the sections are listed in the following order:

    Utah Utes
    BYU Cougars
    USU Aggies

    It wasn't all that long ago that Utah and BYU were in a different order.

    Just sayin'.

    10/9 - Confederations Cup Playoff - Mexico - @ Rose Bowl - TBD
    11/13 - World Cup Qualifier - St. Vincent or Aruba - @ Busch Stadium - TBD

    Two friendlies against quality opponents (especially Brazil), a super-intense rivalry match for inclusion into the 2017 Confederations Cup, and then two World Cup Qualifiers that count towards qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

    Killer stuff.

    Michigan has been very naughty. 4 secondary recruiting violations committed since Harbaugh took over.

    Here's the link to the article...

    http://www.freep.com/story/sports/college /university-michigan/wolverines/2015/05/1 2 /michigan-secondary-violations-jim-harbau g h/27154627/

    The violations, all reported April 13, were improperly discussing a recruit before he had been admitted, providing a helmet and jersey for a fundraiser to benefit a high school scholarship fund, sharing recruiting materials through social media, and allowing a recruit to sit in premium seating at a campus hockey game.

    http://www.utahutes.com/sports/w-gym/spec -rel/042015aab.html

    Greg Marsden, who led Utah gymnastics to unprecedented national success on the competitive floor and in the stands, has announced his retirement after 40 seasons as the school's head coach. Last Saturday, Utah placed second at the 2015 NCAA Championships, just five one hundredths of a point out of first place.

    Megan Marsden, Utah's six-year co-head coach and an assistant for the previous 25 years, will continue in her current role. Tom Farden, Utah's assistant coach for the past five years and the former head coach at Southeast Missouri State, has been elevated to co-head coach.

    A press conference announcing Greg Marsden's retirement and introducing Megan Marsden and Farden as Utah's co-head coaches will be held Tuesday, Apr. 21 at 3 p.m. in the Huntsman Center.

    So... just out of curiosity... is anybody else starting to get worried about this?

    This GIF shows projections of drought conditions throughout North America over the next 80 years if we maintain current emission levels.

    Here's the full video from NASA, which incidentally shows a model that only goes through 2075 (vs. 2095 in the GIF above):

    Also, this video is about water levels in California. Again, this is from NASA of all places.

    I find it interesting that even in the "drastic changes" model, things get pretty darn severe. Mexico basically looks like it would become a desert - and I'll give you one guess as to where all of those thirsty Mexicans will want to go.

    By the way, kids, this is from NASA, not a left-wing liberal group.

    Serious question: Do these projections make you want to change your behavior at all? Or do those that don't believe in carbon emission issues and climate change see this as further propaganda?

    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?

    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!!!!

    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!!!!!!

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


    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?

    Good find. She did pretty good in the West Coast Conference at UoP. She's earned a move up to a major conference.

    Oh, please don't take my post as a knock on Lucas' creativity. He's amazing. But I think we all agree the quality of the prequels was nowhere near as good as the original 3.
    (136 days ago, 2 stars)

    There's a pretty significant difference between J.J. Abrams and George Lucas. Something tells me SW7 will be juuuuuuust fine.

    If they get back together again, I am definitely going to go wherever they play to attend a concert. Even with their stinky, wacko brother.

    Ya, that was something I noticed. As the lower portions got drier, the upper (further north) portions of the continent got wetter in the modeling shown.
    (165 days ago, 0 stars)

    While that does make sense to me, the modeling seems to show a consolidation of precipitation further north. And I have a hard time believing NASA wouldn't take that into account in their modeling. But I suppose it's possible.

    More food for thought - an opinion not necessarily dissenting, but providing a different perspective

    (178 days ago, 0 stars)

    So does anybody know the skinny on Marcus Horne? Is this a good pickup?
    (178 days ago, 1 stars)

    I hope you're right. And... we don't have someone on the roster with more talent than Rudy. Kanter had Rudy looming over his shoulder since the day he was drafted. Raw talent. Couldn't have been comfortable knowing it was just a matter of time.
    (179 days ago, 2 stars)

    I know I'm arguing semantics here, but... a player COULD force unrestricted free agency sooner, by not accepting a long-term restricted free agent contract above a certain length. If they negotiate a shorter term, they'd be unrestricted sooner.
    (179 days ago, 1 stars)

    A few points on this
    (179 days ago, 1 stars)

    Correction: But, dancing isn't allowed in Utah COUNTY.
    (179 days ago, 3 stars)

    Provided he wants to be here. Ultimately, he will have a choice when his unrestricted free agency comes about. If he really wants to leave, he can leave, and relatively soon. Now that being said... highly, extremely unlikely. But possible.
    (179 days ago, 3 stars)

    So it's taken a heckuva long time, but I'm finally starting season 7 of How I Met Your Mother. I'm going through "story fatigue". Should I stick it through to the end? Has anybody watched all seasons?
    (181 days ago, 0 stars)

    Getting solid bigs in this year's recruiting class will be vital. We'll have Jakob and TO, but nobody else that's really tall and broad. This year we definitely needed all 3 of the bigs, and if we're to compete with AZ we'll need more next year.
    (181 days ago, 1 stars)

    Agreed. Our boys would have done the same dang thing.
    (182 days ago, 0 stars)

    It's just a game. (highly interested to see if I get red or blue stars so I can try to interpret what that means)
    (182 days ago, 3 stars)

    OK, here you go. These are all quality rock artists. I put asterisks next to my personal favorites.

    Well, if you won't condone the violence, I will. So there.
    (184 days ago, 1 stars)

    You can also count on that. And bet on that. Let's not discriminate here.
    (184 days ago, 0 stars)

    Boy, that would be cool if AZ already blew their load... and we didn't have to be witness to it...
    (184 days ago, 0 stars)

    Yes, I red star'd my own posts. Cuz I'm hot like that.
    (184 days ago, 2 stars)

    I have no problem fingering dikes.
    (184 days ago, 8 stars)

    Great point :) I guess resting the starters for 15 minutes in the 2nd half will help.
    (184 days ago, 2 stars)

    I hope there's enough bear to last until Saturday.

    I guess the question is if basketball is like other things... where if you shoot your load early, you're hosed.
