First of all, Newman got off to a rocky start, that is for sure. Between his agreeing with Finebaum on utah football to his “I wasn’t soliciting opinions” thing on twitter, it was bad. I think he realized pretty quickly that the new york style isnt going to work in slc and he changed it up. Since then, he has been on fire. Hes cranked out more interesting ute content than the entire 3 man crew at the d news.
Second, it really boils down to this…if Timmy leaves, Larry is looking at a fairwell tour in 2020-2021. I dont know of a single serious fan who would disagree. His only hope would be guys just making other worldly level jumps and making the big dance. If Timmy stays, i think theres a good chance we go to the big dance. i think there are rational people who disagree with me, but its where i see things.
For what its worth, the guy that is putting timmy through individual workouts right now posts videos 3-4 times a week and Timmy is wearing his utes gear in the overwhelming majority of them. Thats pretty far from a slam dunk that hes coming back, but it could be much worse.
