    I don't always come to Utah, but when I do, it is to watch my Utes beat the $#!+ out of Michigan!

    As is my tradition this time of year (shortly before the first game of the season), I'm watching my favorite football game ever played.

    They looked absolutely shocked by the Utah offense

    Relax...everything's fine. It's 7-0 Utah. Don't panic, stick with what you do
    3 seconds later....interception by ROJO!

    Alabama does not know what hit them

    Utah - 100 yards / Alabama - 1 yard

    Wow Wow Wow....Kenny I can not believe how Utah has started this game. Their execution is virtually flawless.....They have exceeded my expectations. They have played and executed unbelievably

    Three Utah possessions, three Utah touchdowns....stunning

    Go Utes! Thursday can't get here soon enough.

    It's much better than that horse and wagon we hitched to a telegraph pole outside Cummings Field.

    Newkirk will prance around in drag to distract the patrol; Lebeau will use the tunnel to keep the dogs quiet by feeding them crepes;

    Kinch will get on the phone and impersonate Hitler to keep Klink and Major Hochstetter occupied; Schultz sees nothing and hears nothing; and of course, Hogan will schmooze with Fraulein Helga and trade silk hose or perfume or some other ridiculous crap to secure the MUSS passes.

    Any questions?

    One last rant before summer is over...

    by The Thrill
    2015-09-02 09:21:02

    Why in the hell do people follow so closely when driving?

    I see people on the freeway literally inches from the vehicle in front of them. Why in #%!@s sake would you drive like that? You're just asking to get in an accident.

    I ride a motorcycle. I see near accidents at least 30-40 times a day...every one of them stems from people driving too close. If people would just back off of the car in front of them then everything would run much smoother all around.

    Merging. Leave some damn room. Let the car in the lane next to you in. Use the zipper method. Again, they aren't leaving enough room between the car in front of them. Without using this method it's inevitable that somebody will have to stop to avoid an accident which triggers a chain reaction of stopping behind them. If you leave room then nobody has to stop...sounds simple right?

    The funny thing is I mention this to most people I know and everybody seems to be in agreement...but I still see nearly every car following too close. If you think you don't follow close...you do. If you think you leave enough room...you don't.

    Rule of thumb. 10 feet for every 10 MPH. Not 1 foot for every 30 MPH. That means back off.

    If you're one who gets upset in traffic because traffic isn't moving just realize it's because people follow too close.

    Realize this, if you let that car get in front of you then your transit time will increase by 0.0001 seconds. It's just plain stupid to follow close, stop doing it.

    RE: It's really bad. 9 quality players out of the state last year and every one of them went to an out-of-state school. Something needs to be done.

    I think this is just part of the process. Let me explain my rationale.

    Joining the PAC12 was great exposer for the Utes, unfortunately it also was for the other PAC12 schools that now are playing in SLC. All of the sudden, they can sell to local kids that they will be playing in SLC every other year (if they are in the PAC south). All of the sudden the door is open to USC, UCLA, Stanford, etc, AND they get to play at home a couple times in their career.

    It will take a few years for that to wear off, I really think that things will shore up in that time though. It is funny how we are getting guys from out of state that we never would have gotten, yet can't get the guys instate that we would have gotten in the past. I think that is all due to the PAC exposure for all the other schools to Utah.

    It sucks to watch, will improve though. Gotta stay positive about it!

    The Michigan players and coaches are in Salt Lake.

    Yet I don't feel any different. My knee is still sore and my dog is still scratching his infected ear. My wife didn't climb in the shower with me this morning and the bread for my toast tasted stale.

    I thought when the great Harbaugh and the storied Michigan team entered our borders that like would change for the better. What's the good of having gods walk among us?

    The law is if you're in the passing lane you need to be passing somebody, then once you've passed them get over to make way for faster moving traffic.

    I really wish UHP would give more tickets for drivers camped out in the passing lane, it's a huge cause of accidents as faster drivers have to pass on the right.

    Slow drivers in the passing lane not getting over for faster moving traffic is the number one cause of accidents on the highway. If you're not passing anybody get out of the passing lane.

    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
