    Back in the day, Doug Moe was a coach in the NBA. He has an interesting way of figuring out how a team was doing, regardless of the standings.

    by Newbomb Turk

    He would award a team one point for a road win, and deduct one point for a home loss. Any home win or road loss counted zero.

    Right now Utah and Oregon St are +1, ASU and Oregon are -1 and everyone else is at 0.

    It may not mean much at the end of the season, but it gives me hope for now.

    We're playing byu-provo this week. So I was wondering, what players (from any team) are the biggest douchebags that you've ever seen in person. Here's mine:

    Askia Booker (Colorad9)

    I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that the game would end with crappy officiating. Why should the championship game be any different than the regular season.

    by Newbomb Turk
    2018-12-01 08:43:42

    I said this last night, and I'll say it again. In a grind it out game like that, the call needs to be made. You can't expect to always have the game in hand where poor officiating doesn't matter.

    Yes, I'm still pissed. I'll get over it eventually....maybe....

    Without Huntley or Moss, in my mind, this becomes a no pressure game. No one expects us to win having lost our entire starting backfield, so I would think the players would come out loose.

    And maybe Taylor will try all sorts of things that we haven't done before.

    I, for one, look at this game as whatever the opposite of a no-win situation is.

    From Ute Zone via Facebook

    "Utah football received big news Saturday night as the Utes landed a commitment from Garden City Community College offensive tackle LaColby Tucker. Tucker, a 6-foot-9 inch, 305 pound prospect, is one of the fastest rising JUCO offensive linemen in the class of 2019. He committed to the Utes while on an official visit this weekend."

    It could be worse. We could be Nebraska fans.

    by Newbomb Turk

    Nebraska was up 31-24 with 2 minutes to go and downed a punt at the one yard line. Northwestern had 99 yards to go with no time outs. Of course they put together a 99 yard drive for a tying TD and then won it in overtime. Nebraska is now 0-6.

    If the offense has another anemic performance (on the scoreboard) this week, we are in for a long season. I don't think we'll even be bowl eligible. This is a huge game for us to get on track.

    The new rule on kick-offs is that anything that you call for a fair catch inside the 25, the ball gets placed at the 25. I would guess that we won't be doing those sky high kicks that get fielded at the 10 anymore. Thoughts?

    My tin foil hat thoughts about the BCS era.

    by Newbomb Turk
    2018-08-24 09:14:33

    So Utah busted it first. The powers that be said to themselves, "let's throw them the Fiesta Bowl against the weakest auto-qualifier and see what happens, hopefully they will lose" We kicked Pitt's ass.

    Next up was Boise State. Powers that be: "That experiment where we had them play the stupid Big East team didn't work, let's have them play a better opponent" Boise beats Oklahoma in a great game.

    Next up was Hawaii. Powers that be: "We're tired of this shit. Have them play somebody really good" Hawaii gets destroyed.

    Next up Utah. Powers that be: "We got it figured out now. Have these stupid 'busters' play a good team and get killed" Utah trashes Alabama.

    Powers that be: "WTF do we do now? I know, we'll have the 'busters' play each other". Boise plays TCU in the Fiesta Bowl

    Now back to your regular political programming.

    We have 4 OL (3 starters, I think), 2 starting LB, 2 starting DB, and our punter and kicker all gone after this year.

    Hope we got some back-ups that will be getting some experience this year.

    I know I shouldn't worry about it until next year, but I've heard people say that 2019 might be a better year for us to take the South. Given this many starters going away, I think this better be the year.
