    ... the Utes need to show something against Idaho State. Any point total or yardage figure Utah produces Thursday will come with the disclaimer of a low-level FCS opponent. In particular, nobody should be deceived by the rushing numbers for quarterbacks Travis Wilson and Kendal Thompson against the Bengals.

    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/58342 283-77/utes-utah-whittingham-season.html.c sp

    Does anyone agree with this? Do we need to provide some shock and awe against the Bengals?

    Meh, put me in the camp that other than win the game and come out healthy I don't see it. I suspect you will see a very vanilla offensive effort tomorrow.

    my predictions for Thursday …

    by vUUdoo
    2014-08-25 15:40:30

    1. the 5:30 p.m. start time will be disastrous.

    2. at some point in the first quarter, Utah will be penalized for a false start and immediately someone will scream that Christensen needs to be fired.

    3. ditto with Wilson and an incomplete pass – “put that kid from Oklahoma in.”

    4. zoobs will manufacture rumors of chainsaw fights, visitors section beheadings and whores offering their services in the concourses.

    5. Utah will artificially start a new tradition between the 1st and 2nd quarter (it may or may not involve xylophones) and it will assuredly be lame.

    6. local media will blow things out of proportion good or bad and make conclusions on the season after game one.

    7. Flipper will get more air time than he did during his entire NFL career.

    Jake Heaps. I admit it, I feel bad for the kid.

    I know he made some brutal public relation faux pas (see below), didn’t put in the time needed to be a quality QB and made a complete ass out of himself at times, but I do feel genuinely sorry for him.

    I hope he gets a shot to play a little bit this year and has some success.

    He’s far enough removed from the Lords Intermountain University of Clogging that I think he deserves sympathy. The Rise N’ Roar crowd can hate him with every fiber of their being, but we don’t need to.

    some Nerd news on the Hill ...

    by vUUdoo
    2014-08-15 08:46:46

    (Phys.org) —A University of Utah team discovered a method for turning a small, $40 needle into a 3-D microscope capable of taking images up to 70 times smaller than the width of a human hair. This new method not only produces high-quality images comparable to expensive microscopes, but may be implanted into the brains of living mice for imaging at the cellular level.

    The microscope was originally designed for the lab of Nobel Prize-winning U human genetics professor, Mario R. Capecchi, whose team will use it to observe the brains of living mice to gain insight into how certain proteins in the brain react to various stimuli. Because the microscope can be assembled so inexpensively and easily go into hard-to-reach places, Menon and Kim expect many other uses for the device.

    When I contemplate where Utah Football could be today ….

    by vUUdoo
    2014-08-14 15:41:06

    1. playing a MWC conference schedule (ranked somewhere in the 60’s, 70’s or worse)
    2. losing a significant number of players on the team (Travis Wilson, Nate Orchard etc.) who most likely would have signed elsewhere
    3. probably making do with the old football center and offices
    4. winning 9+ games, 7 of which were foregone conclusions going into the season
    5. destined to a lower tiered bowl to be played around mid to late December
    6. worrying about how Utah’s Athletic Dept. is going to afford paying athletic stipends and the rumors surrounding P5/G5 status

    tell me just thinking about that for 3 seconds, isn’t TERRIFYING?

    5-7 never felt so good when you simply consider the alternative.

    2014-08-11 12:00:49

    My Stake President attended our ward to set a member apart (for those that don’t know, “setting apart” is simply laying hands on the head, calling a person by name and giving them a blessing). The Stake President asked for his full name.

    The person receiving the setting apart replied, my name is “Christopher Max Hall”. The SP, smiled and surpisingly restated “Max Hall” to make sure he heard it correct? Mr. Hall sheepishly nodded and said “yes, I know”.

    My Stake President smiled and replied, “Ouch!”

    new 49ers Stadium is a dud ....

    2014-08-07 11:46:19

    ... the stadium does not live up to its billing as a technological marvel at all.

    ... the 49ers had a chance to make a real statement. The team had shifted from the old, decrepit Candlestick Stadium, caught in a no-man’s-land between San Francisco and the monied suburbs of Silicon Valley. The 49ers could have built something as beautiful at AT&T Park—something with character and unique architectural elements ...

    There’s a fair possibility that 5 of the 6 games will be against top 25 rated teams and 2 or 3 could be top 10. If we can finish 1-5 during this stretch, I’ll be ecstatic.

    Here it is:

    @ UCLA
    @ Oregon St.
    Vs. USC
    @ Arizona State
    Vs. Oregon
    @ Stanford

    The Runnin' Moose might be gettin' a cornerback ....

    by vUUdoo
    2014-06-20 10:37:14

    While Thomas is officially gone, the Utes could be gaining a transfer from the SEC. The News writes that “[f]ormer South Carolina cornerback Ahmad Christian, who transferred to a junior college in December and announced plans to sign with Utah via Twitter earlier this week, has yet to sign a financial aid agreement with the Utes.” That, though, could happen as early as this week or he could wait until winter to join the team.

    As Christian would be coming in from the JUCO ranks, he would be eligible to play immediately in 2014 if all of the academics get straightened out.

    In December of last year, prior to the Gamecocks’ bowl game, it was reported that Christian would be leaving the Gamecocks. Prior to that, Christian played in 12 games last season, making his first career start in the second game against Georgia. With starters Jimmy Legree and Victor Hampton leaving for the NFL, Christian was expected to, at the very least, compete for a starting job this spring.

    Christian was a three-star member of USC’s 2011 recruiting class.

    FRUIT HEIGHTS, Utah - 63 year old Dee Allen Randall of Fruit Heights is alleged to have defrauded 700 people out of more than $72 million by recruiting clients to invest money and then using their funds to pay previous investors.

    Randall is alleged to have used his positions in the business community and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to gain trust from his investors. One of his neighbors told ABC 4 News that 18 members of his LDS ward had invested money with Randall.

    A neighbor said the last time he saw Randall was Sunday at Church.
