    Just making up words does not make you sound smart

    by HoopUte
    2014-03-12 07:29:55

    I've been amazed at how a lot of media talking heads burger words with additional, meaningless add-ons. I think they think it makes them seem smart. I think it makes them sound like idiots. This morning's example for me was Brian Martin on KSL radio, saying that Mayasian officials were sending the radar images that may be MH370 to the US for additional "analyzation."

    ANALYZATION?!? Putting aside the fact that it sounds like it could be a synonym for a colonoscopy, why not just use "analysis"?

    Thanks for the rant space. Time to move on.

    Majerus's stats and Brazilian bikinis line comes to mind

    by HoopUte
    2014-01-03 09:16:55

    From Tony Jones' story on the game last night:

    The Utes turned the ball over 14 times and had just 12 assists.

    From Gordo's column about the game last night:

    On Thursday, the Utes had just 12 assists. . .

    Utah only shot 24-63, but that means we had assists on half our field goals. That's not too bad. Given Oregon had a whopping 7 assists, I don't see this as a stat from last night to take a shot at. The key one is 24-63. We missed a lot of shots in the first half in close that could have given us a pretty nice cushion.

    So, once again, stats conceal as much as they reveal.

    I hope some people who were posting personal attacks on Travis during and after the ASU game take a long, hard look at themselves in the mirror and think about how they treat a 19 year old playing a game at great personal risk and on behalf of the University of Utah.

    Good luck, Travis.

    D-News retracts story it ran Friday night trashing Wilson

    I didn't see the original; I only stumbled onto this looking for more info on Travis' condition. It must have been something else to have been pulled down this afternoon about 5:00pm. I'm assuming it was by that same lunkhead who wrote that if you take away Kyle's wins he doesn't have as good a record as it looks with them.

    Crazy chance meeting on the way to LA today

    by HoopUte
    2013-10-25 23:02:02

    The wife and I will be celebrating our tenth anniversary at the game tomorrow. In the airport this afternoon we met former Ute, Raider, and 49er Barry Sims and his wife headed to LA as well. He approached me because of my U cap and asked if we were grads and introduced himself. The crazy part is the departure airport was Los Cabos, mexico. We have been there all week on vacation, as had they. They are very nice people and we talked to them thru waiting to board and in the customs line at LAX.

    Small world that's full of Utes.

    Funny Mix-up

    by HoopUte
    2013-09-30 16:12:33

    Actually this is a mixture of Football and Food & Drink categories, but here goes.

    I have a buddy, the drummer in the band I'm in, who is the Southeastern US logistics guy for a local trucking firm. Among their clients is the Lofthouse cookie factory in Ogden. They just shipped some orders to Louisiana and Alabama in school colors to commemorate the big game coming up.

    Well, it so happens that the cookies made for and packaged for Alabama have gold frosting, and the cookies made for and packaged for LSU are in red and white. Teh stores in Louisiana refused to take delivery. I don't know what the Alabama stores did yet.

    I just checked out the panorama of the stadium. Pretty cool in and of itself. So I zoomed in on our seats, and I wasn't there. "Oh, crap! They shot our section when I went out to get that drink between the 1st and 2nd quarters." But wait! If you check out the top of the stairs at portal 34, there I am. Twice. Once at the top of the stairs, and once a couple of steps down.

    Saturday UF.N Group Ride Info

    by HoopUte
    2013-08-29 09:14:28

    I interupt the anticipation of tonight's big event to provide a reminder, additional invite, and location info on a little group bike ride we've put together for Saturday morning.

    We'll be starting at the Legacy Parkway Center Street Trailhead in North Salt Lake at 7:30am, and riding to Farmington Station and back along the parkway trail system. That's about 24 miles so should be right around a 2 hour ride. The Center Street Trailhead is located at:

    Closest Address: 1124 W. Center Street, North Salt Lake
    Closest Major Intersection: N. Redwood Road and Center Street
    Global coordinates: N 40 deg 50.511 min, W 111 deg 56.478 min
    Easiest Access: Take Redwood Road exit on N. I-215, go north to the first light (Center Street), then go west about 3 blocks and you're there.

    If you can't find it from that, well what can I say?

    So far we've got 89Ute, crazyute7, docUte, H-man, Rand, and myself planning on it. Anyone else is more than welcome to come along. We're planning a modest pace of 12 to 15 mph and it's for fun not for show.

    Now back to the anxious wait for work to end. Go Utes!!

    Group Bike Ride Saturday Morning

    by HoopUte
    2013-08-26 21:12:18

    In case any local cyclists have missed it, we've got half a dozen of us from UF.N planning a nice little group ride this coming Saturday morning. We'll be riding from I-215/Redwood Road to Farmington Station and back. Just a fun, no-drop ride.

    So far it looks like 89Ute, H-man, crazyute7, docUte, Rand, and me, but everyone's welcome. If this works out we'll probably figure out how to do these periodically along different routes.

    Boardmail 89Ute or me if you want more info or have questions.

    Calling all UF.N bicyclists: We're putting together a group ride for Labor Day weekend

    by HoopUte
    2013-08-17 18:16:02

    As I posted the other day, I've become quite wrapped up in road cycling since buying a bike three months ago. So one thing has led to another, and 89Ute, H-man, and I have decided to have a group ride over Labor Day weekend. We're planning on going along the Legacy Parkway trail from Redwood Road/I-215 to Farmington Station and back. That's about 24 miles round trip. An option for anyone who wants to do a shorter ride could be to ride the 12 miles with us to Farmington, then pick Frontrunner up back to Woods Cross Station and then you'd have a couple of miles from there to the Redwood trail head.

    To be clear, this is a fun ride, not a race. We're talking moderate level speeds (12 to 15 mph) over a pretty flat trail. It's just a chance to have a little group ride and have a good time.

    We are split as to whether to do this on the Saturday of LD weekend, or on Labor Day itself. So, if you're interested, boardmail either me or 89Ute and let us know if you are coming and which day you prefer.

    Question for SL area road cyclists

    by HoopUte
    2013-08-10 20:31:33

    I bought a decent entry level road bike (Raliegh Revenio 3.0) the end of May and absolutely love it. I mostly ride on the Jordan River Parkway to avoid cars, occasionally take it on Frontrunner to work in Clearfield then ride half way back to Woods Cross on the D&RG rail trail/Legacy Parkway and finish back on the train, and generally ride somewhere between 35 and 50 miles a week. No racing intent here. I just want to use it to drop 30 lb or so.

    I'm getting a little bored with just going out on solo rides and want to try out group rides. What cycling clubs are good for no-drop, moderate (i.e. 13 to 15 mph average) group rides? Who would accept an older, barely getting back in shape guy who hasn't a clue about how not to take out other riders inadvertently when we're riding in a bunch?

    A humorous Dr. Pershing story

    by HoopUte
    2013-07-02 10:58:00

    To me this story sort of puts the swim coach thing in perspective. My sister and her husband were both students of Dr. Pershing 30 years ago in the Chemical Engineering department, and he gave her a very nice recommendation for grad school at CSU later. A few weeks back they were in town having dinner with another old friend who is now a ChemE prof at the U, and who stops by the table by Dr. Pershing and his wife.

    They asked him what it was like in his new role, and he said something along the lines of, "I'm now responsible for about 32,000 students and 17,000 employees, and on any single day you can count on at least one of them to do something really stupid."

    Since 95% of the time on business trips I sit next to anything but MILFs, I'd just tough it out and keep the fantasy alive.

    It's one of the classics. UCLA students were doing that in the 70s.

    umm, he didn't score until there was 3:40 left in regulation, and did that by drawing a foul.

    Why do they need money from the state? If it's a good business plan it should stand on its own.

    A question for the ages, but I believe The Beer Ninja does indeed sprinkle bear per Zoobie folklore

    It is in the f'd up world that the Utah Legislature lives in. Not in my reality. Small government /pro-private enterprise supporters, my ass.

    They should pose this question to Zoobs when they visit so it's easier for The Beer Ninja to know where to sprinkle bear

    How are you separating the Feds from States employees?
    (62 days ago, 1 stars)

    Thanks for the obvious note. I get that. But what it implies is IF there's a difference due to contracting they note it.

    Who said government works just fine and should be growing?
    (62 days ago, 0 stars)

    The footnotes, while not fully clear, would indicate they do account for "project" or contracted employees.

    Regardless, your statement that it's growing is patently false per these numbers.

    Dr. Pershing's a great guy. I think he just made a risk/reward decision on this. It wasn't worth the fight to go against these [insert favorite obscene adjective here] legislators who love to stick it to the University
