    Watching the Ted Bundy series on Netflix last night, and got curious when they started in on the part of his life he spent in Salt Lake (and at the U).

    This was all before I was born, but I started wondering if any of you had any personal interactions with the guy, and what your impressions of him were. What was the atmosphere in the valley like at the time? I was a kid living in LA when Richard Ramirez was terrorizing the city, and even though I was very young I remember adults talking about how scary it was and about the precautions they were taking. Was there that same fear here, or were people largely unaware?

    The show is great, and there's a ton of footage of SLC and the university from that time period that lines up perfectly with their details of events (they even have footage from within a car driving through the Fashion Place mall parking lot). Also, I didn't know that he was actually baptized into the Mormon church. Maybe somebody out there belonged to the same ward as him?

    Matt Wells named new head coach at Texas Tech.

    2018-11-30 08:32:59

    Good for him. I haven't followed USU football enough to know how good of a hire it is. Some Aggie fans saying Yost had way more to do with the success this season than Wells, but he's taking his OC with him, so I don't know if we'll ever get a clear answer on that claim.

    I understand the fear of creating a revolving door, but there appears to be a near total consensus among SC fans that Helton is not the guy for the job. Even worse, nearly every fan of every opposing PAC-12 team seems to be tickled pink over the decision to retain Helton. Even Jon Wilner seems to be on the same side as the masses, calling Swann's Notre Dame example in his memo to Trojan nation as bullshit (pointed out that Kelly had success as HC at other programs and was hust a couple of years removed from a NC game appearance, while Helton was completely untested). Swann better know something we all don't.

    I'm still in the "never play them again" camp, but Shelley had some interesting words after the game.

    by 480ute
    2018-11-26 10:55:13

    This game was the biggest game of the season for us, so we knew we had to keep the streak alive, and now we can worry about (next week).
    Of course, this is patently false. Rivalry or not, this game had zero impact on the rest of the season. If we were vying for playoff consideration this game would have been big, but outside of maybe having a slight bearing on bowl consideration (assuming we lose next week) it means nada.

    But, the team obviously talks about it, and it seems like it means quite a bit to them. Kinda hard to tell BYU fans that our program has evolved beyond the rivalry when your quarterback is saying otherwise.

    BYU has a pretty large psychological advantage. Utah seems to play better when their games are on the P12 network.

    They have been able to let loose knowing that very little people in America are watching. The pressure of knowing that they might have a national audience might cause them to make a lot of mental errors.

    Steve Smith Sr.: My personal battle with depression

    Despite all of my achievements, I routinely felt trapped, inferior and alone. This overwhelmed me internally and often left me mentally, physically and emotionally broken.
    Sometimes the guys who appear to be the happiest and boldest harbor some of the deepest emotional pain and self-doubt. Maybe their constant feelings of inadequacy are what drive them to be ultra successful. It's great when people like Smith, who I'd say is one of the most confident and consistent athletes in recent history, open up and make others aware of the fact that depression and anxiety is a more widespread problem than one might realize. Breaking down the social stigma surrounding mental health is crucial in preventing suicides, and may even have an impact on mass shootings and the like.

    Just saw an article on it, and was a bit surprised at how the news largely flew under the radar. Crazy that we have people serving mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana related charges that got more time than he served.

    Even crazier to read that he briefly considered fighting for custody of his son... The son he tried to have killed, and who was born with a host of disabilities directly due to the attack. He went so far as to write a letter to his son's grandmother... The mother of the woman Carruth had murdered, and the person who has served as Chancellor's (Carruth's son) guardian since he was born. She shot that idea down immediately.

    It's sad that it's a sign of the times. I coach my daughter's softball team (8-11 year olds). The cops were called to the park three times last season, because of parents who got into fights in the stands. (2575)
