    University of Utah tight end Evan Moeai is eligible to be back on the field this fall for the Utes.

    The Provo native has missed most of the last two seasons because of injuries, and he posted on Instagram on Monday afternoon that he's been granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

    So I get that working your network is vital.
    I also am starting to get the idea that really working LinkedIn is a good idea for finding additional job prospects.
    Any other places/sources that people would recommend, based on personal experience? Websites? Organizations?

    I posted similar to this on another message board (a basketball board, ironically), and thought I should post it here to give you all the opportunity to blue star me to death and tell me what a $#!++y Utah fan I am.

    by leftyjace
    2015-12-07 09:03:55

    Much as I absolutely hate it, I understand why the powers-that-be did this. And you KNOW Larry Scott influenced things.

    First off, other than the injuries that are certain to result from this game due to BYU's lack of honor, there is no "cost". The PAC-12 teams all pool their bowl game money and split it equally. So even though the payout at Vegas is less, the amount we get for being in a bowl game is equal to every other team in the conference. Yes, I get the potential "cost" of losing to a mid-major is a loss of face nationally. But we'd run the possibility of losing a bowl game against anyone, right? That's why we play the game, right? I think we have a good chance of beating BYU, probably a better chance than some of the other teams we might have played given the state of our team right now. We might as well make the most of it.

    Second, I think ticket sales will be less of an issue than people on here are making it out to be. BYU fans aren't the only ones that got to guy tickets early. So did ticket brokers and scalpers. There will be plenty of tickets available for fans of both teams that want to go down there. The difference is, Utah fans will have to pay a premium for those tickets as they'll have to be purchased on the reseller market, which sucks. But at least we're willing to pony up the extra money. AND we will tip our waiters and waitresses while we're down there. Which only happens because we buy drinks.

    Third, from a national perspective, Utah/BYU makes a lot of sense. That's a matchup that casual watchers of either BYU or Utah will want to make sure to catch. A lot of the importance of our team playing in a bowl game is exposure, and the opportunity to win admirers around the country via a bowl game that garners attention. Having Utah and BYU play each other is one of the easiest ways to draw attention to one of the PAC-12 bowl games. Having BYU play another PAC-12 team just wouldn't be the same, wouldn't have the same hype, wouldn't draw the same national attention.

    Yes, the Vegas Bowl is the 6th bowl pick in the PAC-12.

    But did you guys know that ESPN now rates the Vegas Bowl as the 9th biggest, most interesting bowl in the nation? In theory, based on the "level" of the bowl, it should be down in the 40's. But it's in the top 10. TOP 10, people.

    And fourth - of COURSE Vegas wants us. They want a good, rowdy, money-spending, fun-loving, normal fan base to offset the tightwad, Motel 6, caffeine-free Diet Coke drinking BYU fans that will be down there doing their best to suck the life out of a traditional bowl game experience. Making this a rivalry game at least makes the environment of the Vegas bowl more like a real bowl game, even with BYU fans involved.

    I'm not happy about this bowl selection. I hate the BYU fan base as much as anyone, and a lot of them are family members. I am scared to death that we're going to experience ridiculous cheap shots and injuries because BYU brings a bad Spirit to the game, is dis-Honorable, lacks Integrity, and has a Tradition of being ass holes.

    This is going to be an insufferable couple of weeks. But as much as I hate it, it makes a lot of sense for those that are supposed to look at things from a macro perspective, and not my micro-perspective.

    So let's at least try to enjoy it. We now have the opportunity to send Donko off in a way that he deserves - with a fantastic beat down.

    I never played organized football and don't know enough about different plays. But I noticed something.

    by leftyjace
    2015-10-24 19:35:37

    Forgive me if I don't word this right but I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terms.

    I notice that USC has change strategies to quick passes. Meaning, the quarterback does a three step drop and then immediately passes it away. One thing I noticed is that the five offensive lineman are counting on only a four man rush during these types of plays. One of the guards pulls off and comes out and positions himself to immediately block for the receiver of the short drop step pass.

    Is this a pretty common thing? I'm finally starting to recognize different strategies utilizing the tight ends and the offensive lineman for blocking.

    I'm not sure if blitzing would help. I don't think they could get to the quarterback fast enough to prevent the quick Pass. How would you go about counteracting this type of strategy?

    Keep WebMonkey in your thoughts

    by leftyjace
    2015-10-06 08:07:27

    Guys/Gals, send out some prayers or vibes or thoughts to WebMonkey and his family. Last night he was involved in a serious car wreck. He's in the hospital. I'm sure more details will come out as time goes on. But first things first - let's hope he gets well.

    EDIT:

    After some quick thought, I'm going to go ahead and post what Chris's brother, Jared, put on Chris's Facebook timeline this morning. I will let his words speak for themselves.

    Friends of Chris, this is Jared, his brother.
    After nearly three years sober, due largely to pancreatitis, kidney failure, and other medical issues caused by two decades of binge-drinking, Chris began drinking again this summer and last night was in a car accident, with a BAL of 27%. He drove into the city and hit a parked car, totaling both. He is in the ICU at the U Hospital.
    Instead of arresting him, the police took him to the hospital because his glucose was over 500. He lost his license and has a court date in two weeks.
    All summer long, as he began drinking more and more and his sweet wife encouraged him to go to rehab, he refused. He has the stubborn pride Evans gene (which I too am guilty of) of refusing to listen to others, ever.
    I would appreciate it if you would leave words of encouragement for him to go to rehab, especially for the benefit of his two daughters who, last night, once again, became very close to becoming fatherless.
    I would have posted this from his account from his phone directly but the scene of the accident was so bad that the police could not find his phone.
    Thanks.

    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.

    Thanks,

    <my name here>

    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.

    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?

    We are in some good company. And how cool is it that half of those with that accomplishment are PAC-12 schools?
    (123 days ago, 0 stars)

    Agreed. Time for you to run for office.

    Wow. Just read everything below. I spoke too soon, apparently.

    Yep. 100%.

    I haven't read any previous posts... but before I do I just want to say that I feel so bad for Brandon Taylor. :( I'm sure he is destroying himself worse than anyone else could ever hope to.
    (147 days ago, 22 stars)

    And that, sir, is precisely why I have him on ignore... and have for some time.

    For those of you that are uncivilized and wouldn't know ;) , one of Alan Rickman's greatest performances (if not THE greatest performance of his career) was as Colonel Brandon in the movie Sense & Sensibility. A great actor.

    What is so crazy is how the song relates to the "screen" phenomenon today. People don't talk to each other directly - but they bury themselves in the "neon lights" of their smartphones and computers. The song is/was almost prophetic.
    (172 days ago, 1 stars)

    Isn't his voice amazing? I love it when they do covers. Their version of Shout (by Tears for Fears) is pretty darn cool, as well as Land of Confusion (by Phil Collins). This version feels as malicious as the lyrics actually are.
    (172 days ago, 2 stars)

    Ya, I noticed that too. Fun little "character plug". Served no purpose in the article other than to besmirch him. Pretty sad, really.
    (179 days ago, 6 stars)

    :) Truly not trying to be ironic, though I see your point. It's just funny to see comments from some I have ignored followed by pages of rebuttals and vitrol. I sometimes wish the Ignore feature allowed you to also ignore responses to those posts.
    (190 days ago, 1 stars)

    I have never seen a message board where the trolls are willingly and knowingly fed to bursting more than on this board. Do people just not understand the ignore function, or what? Ok, rant over. Merry Christmahanukwanza.

    So what happened with Wintrich? The CB thread about his honor code violation was deleted. What happened?

    Covey said he's not missing this game for the world. He says that a 2 year mission is enough time to let his ankle heal. So... there's that, at least.
    (205 days ago, 4 stars)

    So... with David Collette of USU losing his appeal for a full release, can he transfer to another institution and start playing immediately as a walk-on, without scholarship benefits? Just curious.
    (205 days ago, 0 stars)

    I love the ignore feature. I didn't even see what he typed. It's a beautiful thing.
    (207 days ago, 3 stars)

    Oh, wow. Interesting. Wouldn't that be something.
    (207 days ago, 0 stars)

    As a follow up - it's not just ESPN. Andy Staples of SI.com lists Vegas as the #10 most intriguing non-playoff bowl.
    (207 days ago, 0 stars)

    All bowl money is pooled and equally divided amongst all PAC-12 teams - even those that didn't get to go to a bowl.
    (207 days ago, 3 stars)

    A fair point and a distinct possibility, to be sure.
    (207 days ago, 0 stars)

    And I agree. And I honestly don't think we would have been in the Vegas bowl again if it was a team other than BYU we would be facing. But that doesn't mean I don't understand the perspective of Larry Scott and why he would support this bowl bid.
    (207 days ago, 0 stars)

    I posted similar to this on another message board (a basketball board, ironically), and thought I should post it here to give you all the opportunity to blue star me to death and tell me what a $#!++y Utah fan I am.
    (207 days ago, 8 stars)

    If this isn't used as leverage the next time Whit talks to Dr. Hill about his compensation, I don't know why not.
    (210 days ago, 2 stars)

    To EVERYONE on this damn board.... IGNORE IS YOUR FRIEND. Trust me, having him on ignore makes reading this board a lot more worthwhile.
    (210 days ago, 4 stars)

    Done. :)
    (211 days ago, 0 stars)

    I happened to walk by Tom Holmoe on the way out. I made sure to say quite loudly "Boy, and they wonder why we don't want to schedule them anymore." I felt better afterwards. Ya.
    (211 days ago, 27 stars)

    I keep seeing things like "rumor has it Whit is going to hire a real QB coach". Where are these rumors coming from? Can someone substantiate this? Or is it just some wishful thinking expressed on this board that solidified into "I heard a rumor"?
    (214 days ago, 0 stars)

    Great questions. I live alone. Nobody streams here unless they're watching something with me (usually). I'd love to stream in 4K when it's available, though, so maybe staying with Comcast would be good for now. Hmmmmm.

    Interesting. I hadn't explored Vivint wireless. I'll check it out. THANKS!

    Doh! You are correct, I switched them. Fixed.
    (225 days ago, 0 stars)

    I've seen this subject a few times, but I thought I'd start it anew. I'm cutting the cable. My only concern is Internet. I have Comcast now. How is CenturyLink, Dish Internet, etc.? My current download is about 90MBpS and my upload is about 6MBpS.

    Trust me, it was horrible. Bad calls going both ways. My son and I repeatedly looked at each other in amazement. We got a lot of bad calls on us, and we benefited from a lot of bad calls. I don't know if it evened out.
    (227 days ago, 1 stars)

    True, but.... I wonder how much the fact that they were the defending champions played into that?
    (233 days ago, 0 stars)

    That's too bad. Things get so, so good in the final 3 books. Sanderson takes it to another level. The final battle was ridiculous. Made me bawl. Awesome.

    I never played organized football and don't know enough about different plays. But I noticed something.

    I wonder if it will get any better with the new sound system. If they'd mike the damn thing and pipe it out to the crowd with some huge subwoofers, it would probably be pretty cool. The tempo is TOOOOO SLOW THOUGH. It's boring!
    (262 days ago, 3 stars)

    Greg, you've been a great contributor on here and a wonderful rival fan. Much as I'm glad USC lost for Utah's gain in the south race, I'm sad for you that they lost the way they did. Here's hoping Orgeron still loves LA. Bye Sark!
