    I just wish he'd learn to smile in the picture.

    It makes a lot more sense if you are delusional enough to believe that BYU is an academic powerhouse nipping at Stanford's heels like zoobs believe.

    Of course, if LDS church subsidies were reduced to the point where BYU was forced to raise their tuition to even half as much as Stanford costs and if BYU lost its status as the fastest route for LDS youth to get laid, their application numbers would tank aggressively and BYU's admissions standards would drop to a level commensurate with the education being offered - mediocre.

    After I listened to him talk about the "Swim Scandal"...

    and talk about how it was as bad as Penn St, it was time for "Heads to Roll", and Chris Hill should be fired. That was it.

    Jim Boylen was right about him.

    The U. plans to install a new south endzone scoreboard by the start of 2015 season, says AD Chris Hill. Rough cost estimate $4M-$6M.

    Funny tweet

    Heard this today: The week the SEC announced mandated non-con games against BCS (or big five) teams, KU received "about seven calls."

    I had just finishing crafting an email about why Whittingham should get more time regardless.

    by utebehindenemylines

    The pressure on him is a good thing, but I think it would be a huge mistake to fire him after this season almost regardless of outcome. After last season I thought maybe it was time for Kyle to go, but the more I thought about it, the more I think he deserves more time.

    Seeing the bumps in the road TCU is having while making the jump to the Big 12 only validates that it's going to take time to get acclimated and compete in a big boy conference. Utah flat out does/did not have the talent or depth to compete week in and week out with these bigger programs. Now that we've had a few years to realize our shortfalls in recruiting (quarterbacks) and finally receive some revenue to upgrade facilities and recruit and pay better qualified assistant coaches, we MIGHT be ready.

    Whittingham is a Utah man through and through. He shunned his alma mater for the Utes. He has been with the program for 20 years now. He has turned down multiple offers to coach elsewhere because he likes the state of Utah and obviously likes the program and school.

    At this point, Utah is NOT a destination coaching job. It is a step stool to somewhere else. There aren't a lot of other coaches out there with direct ties to the U, and fewer that are Utah legacy coaches. So anyone they hire would be out the door with the first good offer that came their way. I think Chris Hill would be wise to proceed with caution before he takes any steps to fire Whittingham.

    and he missed the pool.

    I'm sure the Stanford band is rewriting their half-time show as we speak.

    nothing Phil Knight's money can do about it. It's priority "1" to keep the sleeping tiger which is bYu out of the PAC12 at all costs

    Like I am going to read it or link it. If you see it in print form, probably will make great emergency toilet paper.

    I've always found it curious that media feel like they are at liberty to say who is on the hot seat and who is not.

    by iamthepreacher

    So Whittingham is on the hot seat because Gordon Monson says he is?

    Most Ute fans I've talked to (at least the rational ones) realize the difficulty of the task that has been laid on Whitt and believe he deserves more time to stabilize the program through an enormous transition.

    I would think that the paying customers (fans), boosters, and school administrators would be the ones to determine who is on the hot seat and who is not. Why should the media have any say in the matter?

    • (NM) means No Message was included in the post, so don't bother clicking on it.
    • 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
