I said last week that Utah v Penn State would be a game of everything right versus everything wrong in college football. That got me thinking though, the story of Utah Football is a great one, what isn’t to like?:
- Workhorse like attitude.
- Clean program with no off-field issues.
- 93% graduation rate for the program.
- Newcomer to P5 athletics.
- Comprised of a bunch of 3* players who have been dominating 4 and 5* teams.
- Disciplined straight up tough-nosed football.
- Under the radar guys like Huntley and Moss, and a whole slate of future NFL players who have been coached up to that status.
- A number of great second-chance redemption stories within the program for guys like Francis Bernard, Darren Carrington and others
- Passionate fanbase with sold out stadiums for as long as anyone can remember
Larry Scott, Mark Harlan - you guys need to get out there and start telling this story and getting the media to tell the story. Utah is everything that is right about College Football.
