    And I felt this way before last night, but the championship game last night sealed it for me. The guy is terrible.

    With Matt Wells gone and considering potential replacements may I respectfully submit the name of Kalani Sitake?

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-11-30 12:47:08

    Now this really isn't trash talk, but I have been trying to figure out a way to justify BYU being a better opportunity than USU, particularly considering the state of both programs and their respective trajectory.

    Short answer is it simply isn't.

    BYU has nothing to play for, no championships and their late season is straight up awful. Home schedules are the same. They don't even have a bowl tie-in and probably will not be selected this year for a bowl despite being eligible. Further, BYU is not a great place to step up to a P5 HC gig.

    Conversely, being in the MWC means playing in championship games, some quality opponents late in the season, bowl tie-ins and a purpose behind the program for USU.

    This is all aside from the respective recruiting issues, which I also think USU wins as well. We don't know Sitake's salary but I would guess it is on par with what USU could do for him.

    NOW, were BYU to join a G5 conference this changes the equation dramatically. But there is no signs of that happening any time soon and no P5 conference will be knocking on that door, particularly with Holmoe at the helm. I also doubt the MWC would ever take them back, certainly not with Hair Thompson as the MWC commissioner.

    I know this isn't the best forum for objective opinions on this, but explain to me how I am wrong.

    I've got to call out the NEZ (or certain fans there)... don't rush the field.

    by Rocker Ute

    Comeback win was fun, but we should never have been in that spot to begin with.

    Schadenfreude took me to cougarboard this morning, they are justifiably angry but misplacing enthusiasm for a exciting comeback win for validation of the rivalry. Does the history add an element? Of course it does, but as I said to my brother, "I came to this game less than enthused but I found that I care a lot about losing to lesser talent..."

    Comeback wins are fun. I found myself cheering for ASUs comeback win against AZ yesterday quite passionately too, and I don't care much for either team.

    Our team forced their will on BYU in the fourth quarter, pure and simple. Now BYU, can get a sense how it felt in the 98 national championship game... we just didn't have the horses.

    BYU has had a solid defense all year, so I wasn't too surprised by that, and Wilson looks legit, just not a lot of other weapons on offense.

    BYU fans want Sitake gone but I just don't know who they will get that will be better. Andy Reid isn't walking through that door.

    The most important thing though for me is that this team eventually fought back. It says a lot about their character. But if we play like this against WA, there will be no comeback story.

    Enjoy the win, we've got much bigger fish to fry. Go Utes!

    It seems like Sitake has cleaned up a lot of things at BYU...

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-11-18 08:27:26

    I'll admit that I haven't watched a ton of their games but I've watched excepts here and there and I'm not noticing the cheap shots, gator rolls and other nonsense they are famous for. More noticeably, BYU players used to kind of jump and prance around a lot over just about any positive play. You just don't see that much anymore.

    Less prancing, less cheap shots. This should be a game easily handled by the Utes, although it is pretty rough to play a meaningless game like this right now, after the season we've had.

    The targeting rule needs to be fixed, here is one way how:

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-11-17 18:17:07

    The intent of the targeting penalty is a good one, to protect players, so it is a supportable penalty. However part of this rule seems to be intent. Did they lead with the crown, was the intent to injure, was it a fundamental unsound tackle? For example
    , Blair lowering his helmet a couple weeks back to hit a sliding QB, obvious targeting call and ejecting the player makes sense.

    Incidental helmet contact, or unintentional helmet contact should be treated differently. Still do a yardage penalty but keep the offending player in the game. For example, Hansen today, even though I don't think it was even targeting, but it obviously wasn't an intent to lead with the head or make any helmet to helmet contact... and that is obvious. So if you want to penalize him, march off 15 yards but leave him in the game.

    Then we aren't nailing guys who are trying to make sound tackles.

    I'm not much for caring about uniforms, but for some reason this has always bugged me with uniforms of the past few years - different colored sleeves always look weird (to me) - Stop doing it:

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-11-16 12:39:03

    For example - this week's uniforms:



    Red sleeves with the Utah stripe. Weird looking to me.

    Earlier this season:



    Red jersey with red sleeves - looks 'good' to me.

    The different colored sleeves has a softball uniform feel to it or something. And I think of the iconic uniforms of the CFB greats, and they seem to follow my 'preferred' uniform pattern.

    My two cents... perhaps this belongs on the Utenation FB page, as people there seem to be more into it there, but they are busy handwringing about the D&F logo and PC efforts to snuff it out.

    I'd love to hear Ma'ake weigh in on this, but my guess is we'll see an improved Shelley this week for a few reasons:

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-11-05 09:25:11

    1. He'll get a full week's prep for the game
    2. The offense will be tailored to his strengths and abilities
    3. The offense will be tailored to the fact that all teams going forward are going to send endless blitzes against him until the Utes can prove it ineffective
    4. His skill set will also be matched up to the weaknesses of Oregon

    When you've got an offensive game plan that is relying on a somewhat different skill set for Huntley, and he goes down injured I imagine you have two choices, continue to try to execute the game plan tailored for Huntley, or adjust mid game the plan for Shelley. There seems to be a good chance of failure on either option for a variety or reasons we can all think of.

    I don't expect Shelley to be the second coming of Alex Smith, but I think that we can get some stuff done. Don't be surprised to see a lot of plays that are intended to pick up blitzes that include quick dumps off screens etc.

    Last Saturday I was driving through Utah County about 3:30 - 4ish, and noticed the roads were pretty quiet. I remembered that BYU had a game that day and worried I might get caught in traffic I turned the radio to 1160.

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-10-29 10:34:11

    In what was just purely schadenfreude I could tell immediately, without hearing the score, that BYU was losing. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY pouts on the air like Greg Wrubbell. I have heard plenty of down on-air talent, but nobody does it like Greg. I could not stop laughing at him.

    So I listened to the last couple of series of the 4Q. BYU had the ball about midfield, 4th and 5 with about 3 minutes to go and all 3 timeouts. Sitake opts to punt and try to pin NIU back (in what is a classic Whit move to let the defense try to win the game). Fans go nuts booing him (and I'll have to say I agree that I didn't like the call). However, BYU actually succeeds in forcing a 3 and out, NIU punts with a little less than 2 minutes to go.

    BYU comes out, throws an immediate INT, game over. Wrubbell with the pouting again.

    Also, I didn't see the targeting call, but apparently one of BYU's defenders got called for targeting. Wrubbell was insistent that it wasn't targeting because the defender "had his arms extended..." Uh... wut?

    Anyway, I made it out of UC long before I could experience any traffic impact. That represents the most Wrubbell BYU football I've listened to/watched maybe ever, but I'll admit it was quiet enjoyable.

    Covey's field vision is unbelievable and his ability to cut in different directions is almost unparalleled. Was the second trick play where he ran instead of passing drawn up that way or did he just adapt?

    Barton and Hansen were everywhere last night too. Fun to see the tight ends making a difference as well.

    As a lifelong Utefan I keep waiting for the wheels to come off and they may still. However if this team keeps doing what they're doing, I'd love another shot at Washington.

    I've been thinking lately that I think it would be cool to put a moratorium on political discussion on game days. Wouldn't that be cool to just talk straight sports and forget why we are all pissed off at each other?

    I know many would like none altogether, but let's be honest that isn't going to happen. But what do you guys think? Would you also give me latitude to delete any political topic on game day, or should we just make it bad form? (Presuming you guys also think this is a good idea, just throwing ideas out there).

    These are the worst kind of losses because we had opportunities. But let's not pretend that Washington is not a good team and Petersen a future HOF coach.

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-09-16 06:26:59

    You lose two starters to targeting penalties, one to injury, negate some big stops and Washington turnovers with penalties and turn the ball over that many times... I don't care if you are Alabama, you aren't going to win that game.

    All future opponents of Washington will be working to get in their backfield because Browning showed he was no good under pressure. But the dual attack of Browning and Gaskin is a lethal combo. Contain the run and Browning will shred you in the air. Gaskin is freakishly good.

    I'm worried about Wazzu, we always have matchup issues with them.

    You heard it here first, but Utah is going to win this game and Utah will find it's offensive identity and a balanced attack on the ground and in the air.

    Only to get destroyed by WSU the following week sending us back into hysterics.

    Yeah, I've been a Ute fan for a long time and you can basically plot this along a line.

    If Facebook really was interested in stopping disinformation through their platform, the solution is stupidly easy.

    by Rocker Ute
    2018-07-27 10:30:17

    Since Facebook is analyzing everything people are posting anyway to generate ads, when they start seeing similar forwarded posts being sent around, check it against the snopes.com database or whatever other fact-based database they want. They could still show the false post if they want, but then at the post, put an icon with a link to the snopes page with whether it is true, partly true, or false. You could even filter to not see any shared post that is marked as false by snopes, politifact, etc.

    Today, and elder friend shares a post with a story about an unmarked police car trying to pull someone over, and them dialing 1-1-2, discovering it is a fake and then the police coming to the rescue. Nice, story, but 1-1-2 doesn't work in most states and is no quicker to dial than 9-1-1. Of course, this shared post was shared about 20 other times by her friends and just isn't true. Checked out snopes to verify that fact.

    So then the conundrum, do I crack down on the elderly lady, or let it ride?

    But if they did this, it might help with the whole Russian disinformation campaign quite a bit.

    According to CNN, the trip to Iraq was planned 4 weeks ago and the WH press corp was sworn to secrecy for security reasons. You've heard me be very critical of Trump many many times on this board, but this whole thing seems to be a lot of nothing.

    I agree. Some of those penalties in other countries are brutal by the US standards.

    Well sure... he's a crook in his business, and his charity, and cheats on his wife, and lies about hush payments, and lies about everything else... but I got a good feeling he is telling the truth about Russian collusion.

    Pretty hard for a fan of a band that can only play two songs to be critical of even a Jr high band.

    I'm not disputing that, as I said, Trump was the golden goose... but they were there to sow divisiveness and did, quite well. Case in point: this thread.

    You guys realize Russian trolling targeted both sides right?
    (34 days ago, 0 stars)

    I enjoy when the remaining defenders of Trump try to distract by stating there is no evidence of Russian collusion.
    (38 days ago, 8 stars)

    Uhg... a world of Pelosi and Trump. As they say, the definition of insanity is to try the same thing and expect different results. 2 years in and there is still no clear plan on how to defeat Trump in 2020, and this isn't going to help.

    Didn't Boylen say he was 'jacked up' when he was at the U right after he was hired, and there was a collective facepalm because of our former guy who also was Giac'd up?

    That was the original meaning of the word. When we were kids, if we told our grandpa who was an English teacher that something was "terrific" he'd say, "That bad, huh?"

    Is 'peeked' how kids say 'spend a lot of time reading' these days?

    I'd also like to hear from the original backers of Prop 2 as to why they are okay with the compromise. They could add a lot of clarity to this, send a message and bolster support to make sure it happens.
    (46 days ago, 0 stars)

    I don't disagree with you at all on this typically, but what I am saying is that this compromise SHOULD have a supermajority support among voters now (since it has been endorsed by the LDS church) and so that threat could be very real for them.
    (46 days ago, 0 stars)

    So now is the time to hold the legislature accountable. With a majority of Utahns voting for Prop 2 and the state's major faith supporting medical marijuana, if they stall it it should be easy to vote them out of office.

    True, PAC-12 officiating (in football and basketball at least) has been awful. But we should at the very least (and I mean VERY least) expect impartiality in their incompetence. Yet we don't even have that.
    (51 days ago, 4 stars)

    Whether there is a conspiracy or not is irrelevant. The problem is that because of the Woodie Dixon controversy nobody has any confidence in officiating. Larry Scott has literally done nothing to try to remedy that.
