DUI on campus...which is incredible by itself. Blew a 0.147 Not sure how 2 "jungle juices" get you there.
Neil Pau’u, a rising junior receiver, was arrested on suspicion of DUI by a BYU police officer just after midnight on June 8 after he allegedly attempted to drive through a barricaded road near the Smith Fieldhouse, according to an incident report obtained from BYU police through a government open records request.
The University of Utah announced Monday that the petition to grant immediate eligibility to Cameron Rising, a high-profile quarterback transfer from Texas, to play in 2019 has been denied by the NCAA. He will have three years of eligibility remaining when he is eligible to play in 2020 and can practice with the team this fall, as the NCAA ruled he must complete a year in residence with the Utah program.
Juarez’s background is complicated, with UCLA basically having forced him out of the football program, due to the school’s “strict concussion policy,” according to the Southern California News Group.
In a story published in March, the Los Angeles Daily News said Juarez sustained at least three concussions in his UCLA tenure, while appearing in 14 games. Coach Chip Kelly confirmed Juarez’s departure, due to the linebacker’s medical history.
Juarez has two years of eligibility remaining, and must complete his degree from UCLA to play for Utah in 2019.
UP 4014 is one of only 25 Big Boys ever built, and is the only one running thanks to a years-long restoration effort by Union Pacific. Weighing over a million pounds, it was originally designed to haul freight over the Wasatch Mountains (themselves a section of the Rockies), and its approximately 6,300 horsepower could propel it up to 80 mph.
In a recent development, running back Armand Shyne intends to transfer, rather than play behind Zack Moss as a senior, according to Alex Markham, publisher of Ute Nation on the Rivals network. Shyne didn’t practice Tuesday, when Devonta’e Henry-Cole worked with the first team. Shyne started the last five games of 2018 after Moss was injured. He would become the 12th junior from the 2018 team to leave the Utes
The Las Vegas Bowl
In 2020, the Las Vegas Bowl moves from UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium to the new Las Vegas NFL stadium. In the course of the six-year deal, the SEC and Big Ten will each make three appearances against the Pac-12 in the Las Vegas Bowl. It’s expected to be either the third or fourth Pac-12 team after the Rose and Alamo Bowls are filled. It’s unknown what selection the SEC and Big Ten would send from their respective conference.
This will mark the first Pac-12 and SEC non-playoff bowl matchup since the 1989 Freedom Bowl. The Pac-12 currently plays bowl games against each of the Power 5 conferences except for the SEC. The two conferences have played in only nine non-College Football Playoff/New Year’s 6 bowls.
Saban when asked if he was going to rest Tua Tagovailoa before the Citadel game
by Crafty Ute 2018-11-19 11:40:55
“I got asked about not playing [quarterback] Tua [Tagovailoa] in this game. Well, if we didn’t play Tua in this game, we’d be sending the message to every good player we have that they shouldn’t play in this game. Eventually, why should we even play? Why don’t we just forfeit so nobody gets hurt? Take a loss and just be done with it.
“Or is it an opportunity for everybody to improve and grow and challenge themselves to get better so we get out and execute better as a team and build a little momentum through the week and the game? So, all right, we play better in the next game. That’s what I believe.”
I think that Shelly and Shyne and others should get as many game reps as possible leading up to the Washington (ST) match up.
JM: What’s more satisfying and why, taking a 75-yard run to the house, or chipping away at the defense by carrying the ball a handful of times on a long drive?
ZM: I would have probably have to say option B. I love carrying the ball multiple times on a drive. I get a certain level of satisfaction from wearing out the defense and imposing my will on them. I enjoy watching them quit play by play. That’s when they start to understand they don’t even wanna play with you.
Excerpt from The Athletic about Utah and points per play since we've been in the PAC12
by Crafty Ute 2018-10-30 08:27:18
I broke down the statistic in reference to, specifically, the last four games, because that’s when this turnaround started for the Utes. So, we’re not completely comparing apples to apples here, but it’s a good look at the current version of Utah’s team efficiency. And the statistics are clear — this is the most efficient offense, by far, the Utes have ever had in the Pac-12 and it’s the most efficient defense they’ve had since the 2011 season.
Span --------Plays/Point(Off)----Plays / Point (Defense)
Last 4 games---1.74----3.87
For example, in the last four games, Utah’s offense has scored a touchdown once every 12 times it snapped the ball. Last season, it had to play 17 snaps for every touchdown. Alternatively, in the last four games, Utah’s defense has made opposing teams play 27 snaps for every touchdown it scores. Last season, teams only had to play 20 snaps for every touchdown it scored on the Utes.
