    Football is better than everything else going on in the world

    Really need it to come back soon. With the state of Politics, the end of TBBT and GOT...off season distractions have devolved into endless yard work. Our season can't start soon enough.

    How many OC's have other PAC-12 programs gone through in the last decade?

    by RUUTES
    2018-12-17 18:16:08

    Honest question. I know I'm frustrated with what I've seen here but sometimes it's important to put it in perspective. We have had 1 HC in the last decade while every other P-12 has had at least one change.

    So how are the other PAC-12 programs doing at OC/DC positions? Sometimes I suspect we're not seeing something unique to Utah...maybe when you balance out the changes in the 3 top spots among other similar programs we aren't really that odd?

    Still wish we'd had 2 more years of stability.

    Well ESPN now has us projected to the Sun Bowl

    by RUUTES
    2018-12-02 09:09:02

    The coaches and ADs as well as the college presidents need to do better for our conference.

    And I have zero reason to think these are "predictions" as ESPN always seems to feed the info to their writers so they look smart. I have the sense the deal is done.

    I'd love to be wrong. But I'm guessing the deal is done.

    And UW is going to beat us back into the MWC if this is how we deal with sliding into a win a week ago. I’m cold and pissed but mostly just disgusted. This game
    Matters because any game you embarrass yourself matters. Sad for Chase and those kids who are trying to win but don’t have the backup tonight. Better be a halftime miracle.

    Guess give it up to Sataki. He's brought that team back around. Big improvement from last year. We should not overlook them at the end of the season.

    Random question but for the last few years we've got emails about buying the extra cushioned seat backs (IMG College seats last year)...

    Tomorrow night we play UCLA

    by RUUTES
    2017-11-02 07:41:55

    while every game is our "most important game" I think this is now likely the game on which our season pivots from "slightly salvaged rebuilding year" vs total "dumpster fire collapse."

    So GO UTES!

    Show us you've got your locker room issues settled and all these young and inexperienced linemen are getting disciplined and growing into heir roles.

    Show us that MOSS can run the ball (because we let him try 25 times).

    Show us that Huntley is healthy and has his head in the game. (how about breaking 60% on passing?)

    Show us the coaches not only see the problem but are up to addressing it.

    I don't care if we win by 1. I just want a damn win because October sucked!

    GO UTES!

    Remember when the biggest issue on UF.N was Moose trolling us about football?

    by RUUTES
    2017-11-01 06:55:41

    Yeah I miss those days. Not Moose, just those days.

    Also starting to miss that wacky bama fan spamming the boards...at least it was all about football and cheerleaders.

    I know its a down year. It's rough. But hey there's always NASCAR! wait, do we have a NASCAR category? Nope? Then back to football

    I have no prediction about this Friday (certainly not after last week) but I "feel" like we'll do better and not lose by 21 points. So there is that....that and a nice stiff glass of Blanton's.

    We are going to win at Autzen

    by RUUTES
    2017-10-27 07:43:48

    I have no inside knowledge. I did not stay at a a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    But I have a right feeling. This is a bounce back week. Not necessarily a turn around the season week. But a bounce back week against an Oregon Ducks team who's even worse off at QB than we have been and who's heading down while I think we already flat-lined.

    Fitts will be healthier. Both Huntley and Williams should be in better shape.

    Moss is going to get more carries.

    I think we're going to do it. And if we don't then someone will come blue star me and tell me I'm stupid and wrong and I'll be ok with it.

    But I think we're going to win.

    What's an "acceptable" outcome for Saturday?

    by RUUTES
    2017-10-10 06:44:59

    Honestly even with everyone healthy not many gave us a chance in hell of going to USC and winning. It's one of the 2 steep hill games on our schedule. We started the season with most of us thinking 7-5/8-4. And that was with a new OC and a sophomore QB.

    Now, being somewhat rightly annoyed by some inexplicably poor performances against Stanford it's understandable we'll nit-pick the hell out of every misstep this week.

    However I'd like to go into the weekend with a healthy dose of realism. We are on the road, in turmoil at the QB position, having to make some massive adjustments for either TW or TB depending.

    And we are going up against a more talented team in a house where we don't historically win.

    So what's acceptable?

    For me it's keeping the game within 10 points, seeing the O-line perform better on pass plays, and a 50% improvement in hiking the ball. I do NOT expect to see QB play improved (this week). I would hope we keep it conservative enough that we have no more than 2 picks (the entire game).

    If Moss can run for 75 yards against USC I'll say he did his job at the level I expected.

    For me that's acceptable. Not fun, not happy, just not a sign of the apocalypse coming home to play ASU.

    I think if we can see these things, we'll know the coaches are working hard and being effective and it will not make us feel warm and fuzzy on Saturday, but it will be a good sign for us winning games we can and should win the rest of the season.

    Despite work utterly sucking and the weather being meh...


    1. BYU loses to scrappy little Aggies, beginning their season 1-4 and likely to lose the next 2...or 6

    2. USC loses a heart breaker to WSU, leaving a crack in the door of the south and....well USC loses so regardless of the door..its a great thing.

    3. Rick Pitino goes down in FLAMES BOOM GONE!

    4. We got a week to sit back, watch it all while sipping beer resting on our 4-0 butts...and didn't have to go to an 8:30 game.

    Yep...Great week to be a UTE!

    Anyway hoping the Utah Sports Fan Community can return to Sports in the near future cuz there are PLENTY of sites where everyone can spew political venom...

    Good enough to be noticed at Sundance but not to get an Oscar nomination

    by RUUTES
    2015-11-30 17:40:05

    That's my own metaphor for our team. Everyone else has chimed in so I figure I'll try my hand as well.

    Coming into the year I thought we'd win 7 games if I remember right...and was taking crap from some people for being optimistic. I knew TW was coming back and that we were going to have CO_COs...but I knew our D could keep us in games against most of the teams on our schedule.

    So why am I disappointed when we actually did better than expected?

    Several simple things.

    1. Sports played on a seasonal basis aren't about how you start, they are about how you finish.

    2. Overall the O performed as sadly as I expected. Yep they had a couple good games. But remember Grady kicking the snot out of UCLA? Great win but how'd that really work out for us? I think I feel that UNLV loss more than the UCLA win. The last 3 weeks feels like that UNLV loss to me, especially if you factor in how many times everything else was lined up for us.

    3. We continue to ride a horse till it's dead. We did it with Wynn, we definitely did it with Booker, and I think we did it with TW. When someone is tanking leaving them on the field isn't a better option than using your backups...it's obstinate and an interpretation of loyalty that gets teams defeated and players hurt. Losing Booker hurt as much as losing the game because it ended the career of our one true star on Offense. He was a joy to watch and I will miss seeing him run him (win or lose).

    In the end it was a year that was good if you do NOT look at the arc of time. But I do. We peaked the first 4 games then declined.

    The whole thing (returning to the movies) reminds me of a Danny Houston movie...it can have a great script, a good director, and a bunch of buzz...but Danny Houston is still in it...and for that reason I can almost always predict how it's going to be...something that could have been great...but wasn't.

    Going Forward I predict slightly upper middle of the pack.
    7-8 wins in 2016 but with adjustments on the Offense better in 2017. Feel free to feed my my prediction in a year if I'm overly moderate.
