    Utah's turnovers, D and rebounding need to be more consistent. The team is playing well now, and in spans they're damn tough..

    With Bol out for the season, I don't see a favorite. I wish Colorado would get tougher to make the mountain road trip more difficult.

    On to Arizona. They aren't all that tough this year. Ayton, Tarczewski, Grier and Alkins are in the NBA. In their final non-conference game they beat UC Davis by 2. UC Davis' record is 3-10.

    Turnovers killed Utah's chances. But Nevada caused most of them with tips & such. They're good. Coming into the game their 3 pt shooting looked like a weakness @ 34%. Utah sagged in to help and they shot 46%.

    I like the Utes' rotation - with Tillman & Barefield off the bench. The team is improving. I hope Tillman likes the rotation.

    Bring on ASU.

    Oh, and I remember an awful lot of Ute fans complaining about Majers' style of play - too slow, too deliberate, too much emphasis on defense.

    December 18, 1976, Utah 70 - #3 Kentucky 68, Kentucky's first loss in the brand new Rupp Arena


    From the Des News 23 years after the game:

    "We had no chance," said Judkins, who had one of his best games ever, scoring 24 points. "Everybody back there thought it was over before it started. But we went out and really executed."

    Jonas recalls that even after they won, people couldn't believe it.

    "I remember waiting in the airport to go home with this huge trophy that they thought would never leave the state. Someone saw it and said, 'Hey what are you doing with our trophy?' "

    Here's how Jonas describes the game-winning play.

    "We got the ball with seven seconds left. I brought the ball up the left side and they expected us to go to Judkins and they double-teamed him. Earl Williams was all alone on the right side of the foul line so I passed it to him. When he hit the shot at the buzzer, it went from bedlam to absolute silence. All you could hear was our team celebrating and Bill Marcroft, saying 'Utah wins.' "

    "I've never seen anything like it," added Judkins. "The place was going crazy, but when Williams made that shot, it went dead silent."

    The Washington drive to start the 4th quarter was like a slow, no anesthesia root canal.

    by pangloss
    2018-12-01 12:54:56

    Washington's killer drive to start the 4th Qtr:
    17 plays
    5 first downs
    started on the Wash 6 went 73 yards to the Utah 20
    lasted 10 minutes
    ended with the blocked FG, but only 5 min left in the game

    Their third quarter drive was 14 plays, lasted 7 minutes and also ended with no score.

    Time of possession usually doesn't mean much, but it did last night-- Wash had the ball 17 minutes more than the Utes. They also ran 73 plays to Utah's 52.

    Congratulations to Washington. They beat Utah at its own game. I'm glad Browning and Gaston are seniors.

    There is a thread a couple pages back about the Utah County artist McNaughton. As an amatuer art historian, I was going to respond there, but was afraid it would get lost.

    by pangloss
    2018-11-27 14:59:45

    The origins of McNaughton's style date back about 90 years. It's called Political Realism. It started in Russia and Germany. Out of those origins sprouted the Chinese, North Korean and Utah County McNaughton sub-genres.

    Here are a few examples.

    1930's German

    Russian / USSR

    Anyone have a pimple that didn't heal and hung around for a few months?

    by pangloss
    2018-11-15 15:33:09

    Well I did.

    My pimple was red, had smooth edges and was about half the size of a pencil eraser a few centimeters above my right eyebrow. When the top of it fell off, or was rubbed or scratched off a couple times it scabbed over and looked like it was healing - only to come back. It was still red and had smooth edges - I thought it didn't look like the type of mole to be worried about.

    After more than a few folks told me to get it looked at, I asked my primary care guy about it during a visit for some other irritant. He wasn't too concerned and suggested I see a dermatologist, which I did. The dermatologist shaved off slices for biopsy. The biopsy came back positive for basal cell carcinoma. With that diagnosis I learned that if you're going to get cancer, that is the kind you want.

    Yesterday I went to the surgeon/dermatologist for Mohs surgery. That's an iterative process where they chop a chunk off, examine the chunk for cancerous cells and if there are some, take another chunk, examine, and repeat if necessary. I was there for about 8 hours. The doctor gave me a mirror after he was finished chopping. There was an impressive hole in my forehead about the size of a half-dollar and about three stacked half-dollars deep. I had no idea the skin on my forehead was so thick.

    Then, he cut 1.5 inch triangular 'flaps' above and to the side of the hole and somehow plugged the hole with the flaps. He used some kind of electric current cautery tool during the process. It made foul smelling smoke and an odd electronic noise that reminded me of Frankenstein movies when they revive the monster with lightening. When that thing hit a nerve it felt like a big spark was shooting out the top of head. They covered the wound with a kotex-sized bandage.

    I didn't see the repair before they put the bandage on, so I'm not sure how the triangular flaps covered the hole. The scar will be somewhere between movie star plastic surgery and Frankenstein's monster's forehead - I suppose.

    So, word to the wize, wear wide brimmed hats, and get those moles and peculiar looking pimples looked at early. Hoping they will heal themselves is a poor decision.

    If Alex Smith plays out his Washington contract, he will earn about $258 million in his NFL career. His guaranteed career money today is about $178 million.

    A HOF honor would be nice, but I doubt he will lose sleep over it.

    Smith is now the highest paid Ute sports alumni. Andre Miller is second at $98 million.

    I haven't actually researched all Ute pros but I'm fairly sure Smith and Miller #1 and #2.

    Offensive line

    by pangloss
    2018-10-21 11:40:55

    Since we're heaping praise on the team & coaches, I want to recognize the O-line's progress.

    After the NIU game I was afraid they were the team's achilles heal. The Utes rushed for a net 68 yards and passed for 286 in 31 attempts. Huntley was chased all over the field and ended up with a 39 QBR.

    This sounds silly, but Last night, Utah's O-line held their own against freaking Southern Cal at the start. In the first qtr the Utes were gettin 2 or 3 yards per play on the ground. It was tough sledding. As the game wore on, Utah started opening holes for Moss and gave Huntley time to throw. By the end of the game the SC defensive line looked gassed and wanting it all to end. Huntley had a QBR of 79.

    After struggling against Northern Illinois, the O-line dominated USC. Let that sink in.

    A few things I really liked last night.

    by pangloss
    2018-10-07 12:52:12

    In Utah's second possession they had a 4th & 2, Wish stalled his punt for a couple counts and Stan got a running into the kicker penalty, giving the Utes a 1st down. Stanford only had 2 penalties on the night, that one was huge. The Utes then marched down the field and scored the game's first TD - setting the tone & momentum. I don't know the stats, but it seems like the Utes suffered several drive killing penalties and enjoyed few drive sustaining opponent penalties in the two losses.

    Stanford has always been a run-first offence with huge, tough O-lines. Utah stuffed their run, they only had 42 net yards (-30 on Costello sacks). Forced to pass when they were behind and couldn't run, they gave up two interceptions and only had one TD pass in 41 pass attempts.

    Over the years Stanford has also had huge, tough D-lines. Utah gashed them for 222 yards on the ground, blowing open huge holes, getting blockers on their linebackers. On several runs, Moss wasn't touched until he was 6 or 7 yards downfield.

    Huntley went 17 for 21 with no interceptions. He had a QBR of 76, Stanford's Costello was 41.

    The smiles on the faces of the Utes late in the 4th quarter were beautiful. It was a terrific win.

    It seemed like Huntley had to check down to his second or third receiver on many, or most of his passes. I couldn't tell from TV if NIU played man or zone, whatever they did it disrupted things. Huntley didn't try to force the ball and didn't take off running very often.

    Whatever the reason, it seemed like they struggled in passing.

    Then again, 286 yards, 20-31 catches, and zero interceptions isn't awful.

    It's cool that the Utes are one the last six teams playing. I wish Utah was playing for the NCAA championship, but since they're playing for the NIT championship they might as well win it all and end the season on a high note. One of only two that will.

    On a personal note, I have a friend who went to Penn St. I drug him to the UC Davis game. He was dismissive of the PAC and Utah. It would be nice to avoid taking additional shit from him.

    In 1985 or '86 or '84, Gator and I attended the Crimson Club inaugural meeting. We were organized into a dozen or so little groups with about 8 people in each. It was kind-of exciting that Utah athletics was imitating big time programs. I think it cost $20 to join. Chris Hill was the director of the CC.

    We stuck around after the meeting (beats work) and talked to Hill. He was interested that Gator and I worked at a big corporation (Hercules). He was using paper. He wanted recommendations on how to computerize club member lists. I don't remember if we had graduated from Visicalc to Excel, but I told him I didn't think a workbook would work for him. He's a pleasant guy and has done a marvelous job. I wish I could have helped.

    Trump's revisionist rambling about the USSR, Afghanistan and Russia echos the Kremlin's interpretation of history. Where he got those ideas is a matter of national security. This is a real issue.

    Not so fast. John Adams defended the British soldiers who killed the 5 civilians at the Boston Massacre. Adams was a good man, a good founding father, and a good president. The Brits were scum.

    On to Arizona. They aren't all that tough this year. Ayton, Tarczewski, Grier and Alkins are in the NBA. In their final non-conference game they beat UC Davis by 2. UC Davis' record is 3-10.

    4th consecutive Utah win @ ASU. 27 point turnaround. Rebound, get back on D, run when it's there, shoot well from 3 - a good recipe.

    Oh, we of little faith, there's plenty of room on the bandwagon. That was great.

    Yea, that was fun. It was looking grim at first, down 17, now 4. The Utes are improving and they're playing hard.

    ASU is good, they play really hard. The Utes will learn from this.

    Great news for Whit. He gets a $100,000 bonus for a top 25 finish on top of the $90,000 bonus for the division title and $50,000 for an APR over 970 (983). Football has been very, very good to him.

    ASU beat #1 Kentucky. ASU lost to Princeton. Princeton lost to #2 Duke by 51, 101-50. Utah could win, but I'm not betting that way.

    Wasn't Brian Johnson the QB coach at Houston when Applewhite was HC or OC? That would be a good reference.

    If only Utah's 3rd drive in the second half to the NU 6 had ended in a TD rather than the scoop six, 17 pt lead vs 3 and the similarity with the Sugar would have been complete, or at least more-so.
    (19 days ago, 3 stars)

    Didn't they still get it wrong? Two separate dead ball fouls should have both been walked off, right?
    (19 days ago, 1 stars)

    The similarity of Sugar and Holiday games' ebb & flow didn't occur to me till now. Fast starts 21-3 and 20-3. After bama and NU comebacks, up 21-17 and 20-17. To NU's credit, that's where the similarity sadly ended.

    It is beyond questions of policy. If Mueller's report describes beyond-a-reasonable-doubt felonies committed by Trump, would that be a disqualifying milestone for your support? Simple yes or no.

    Yes. But that has nothing to do with Trump's dishonor, dishonesty, or lack of integrity..

    The accusation of slander is toward Trump not Gen. McChrystal. Putting it nicely, Trump has a strained relationship with the truth.

    It's their 4th loss in a row. Arizona hit a last minute 3 to beat UC Davis. ASU lost to 7-5 Princeton. To put it mildly, there is no clear favorite, every team has sucked.

    The 0.05 limit lowers the odds of Utah getting the Olympics. In the run-up to the 2002, the liquor laws went from asinine to tolerable. Maybe that carrot can be used again. I don't think they can bribe the delegates again.
