    Probably the best part about this state is that whenever I get sick and tired of all the bull$#!+ I can pack up my crap, drive an hour or two in any direction, and do stuff like this

    Taken last weekend up on the Provo River 15 miles past Kamas, it's damn cold in the middle of the night this time of year, but it's awesome being able to get out of the city do astrophotography so easily. There's not many places in this country where you can do stuff like this, nor is it possible in most places to pick a direction from a major city, drive an hour or two, and end up in any number of different geographies. Hour east and you're in the Uintas, hour west and your on the salt flats, hour north and you're in farmland, couple hours south and you're in amazing desert. Kind of funny actually, when I was a kid my family used to go down to Goblin Valley every Easter, we'd have egg hunts among the sandstone formations and it was always an awesome time. Planned a trip down there next weekend, haven't been since Easter some 17 years ago.

    All I'll say is at this point the beauty contest is over. Win. Just win. Any way you can just make sure you have more points on the scoreboard than your opponent at the end of the game.

    Utes did well enough in the beauty contest department in February and early March, they got the 3 seed, now it's just about surviving the madness.

    Just saw the ratings for the national championship game last night, 25.7 million total, a 25% decrease from last year. Overall it was an ABYSMAL bowl season for tv ratings, Rose Bowl had it's worst EVER.

    by PDXUtefan
    2016-01-12 21:57:33

    The rhetoric in this article is pretty strong and it's very short on actual ideas for causes and fixes, but the take home point is valid:

    http://www.foxsports.com/college-football /story/cfb-playoff-year-2-alabama-crimson- tide-clemson-tigers-national-title-ratings -rose-bowl-011216

    The bowl season is broken, it's plainly obvious to anyone who digs past the surface. It's truly become a facade and a pointless end to the college football season. Too many lousy teams are given opportunities to play one extra game. I personally believe we have the BCS system to blame for this, too many teams felt like they were getting screwed year after year thanks to the bogus BCS rankings and it spawned a system of "well, we'll just make another bowl and try to squeeze a few extra bucks from the whole system". Way too many bowl games anymore and if the tv ratings keep declining like they are expect that seemingly endless well of money to dry up.

    So what's going to happen? I expect in the next 5 years we'll see a couple things. First will be an expansion of the playoff to 8 teams, the chatter is already there about teams getting left out (even though the Pac-12 canablized itself this year a STRONG argument for Stanford's inclusion was made after they throttled Iowa and then MSU/Oklahoma laid absolute eggs in their games). Plenty of money is being made off the playoff itself and more exciting matchups will keep tv ratings relatively high. Second, there will be a trimming of the bowl game fat and hard minimum requirements for teams to go bowling. A number of bowl games need to be axed and no more lax rules allowing shitty 5-7 teams to make it. In fact I'd like to see more minimum requirements for 6-6 teams to be filtered, perhaps a minimum graduation rate or team GPA. If you're team is struggling to make grades and graduate players then why are earth kids going to be spending more time away from the classroom during finals? Want to go to a bowl game? Graduate your kids and make sure they are all passing classes.

    Just some thoughts.

    A small bit of irony, the last Chiefs playoff victory came a few decades ago in Houston with some guy named Joe Montana.....who was traded away by the 9ers in favor of a younger, flashier QB.

    If only Krapernick was a fraction of the player Young was, but it is funny that the Chiefs get back in the playoff win column with another former 9ers QB.

    Cool picture of the stealth bomber flyover before kickoff of the Rose Bowl

    Every single time I watch the Rose Bowl and see that bomber fly over I get chills, don't know why, but it just looks so cool.

    Also, someone had posted that Stanford fans were lousy at traveling and the stadium appeared to be 70% Iowa fans and 30% Furd fans before kickoff. Pretty much puts that to rest, looks the opposite of that, actually, 70% Furd fans and 30% Iowa fans.

    The only satisfaction I take out of that game is the fact that you couldn't field a worse offense than the Utes did today....and we still won somehow.

    Baylor's third string QB is lighting up OK State. After their second string QB was doing well to get them 21 points before getting hurt.

    Nothing pisses me off more than seeing Whitt be outcoached by that huge loser Dick Rod, there isn't a bigger baby in college football than that asshole and he owns Whitt.

    The offense didn't win us the game, but the defense sure as hell lost us it. We looked absolutely clueless how to defend them, Domo got embarrassed early on, the DB's got their lunch money stolen time and again, and the only thing that helped us was knocking Anu out of the game. The defense was on it's heels the whole time Anu was on the field, they got whatever they wanted and the only reason the score wasn't worse was because of their self inflicted wounds (going for it on 4th instead of taking 3, the bad snap that cost them a TD shot, several easy dropped balls). The defense was flat out unprepared for this Zona team, again.

    It's crazy to think how limited our offense has become since the Oregon game, we basically have one play that works with any decent frequency besides utilizing Booker, the swing pass out into the flat and letting Covey/Booker/Poole/Whoever try and use their athleticism to make a play. Zona was on the SIXTH (6!!!!) starting Middle Linebacker and he got hurt! Why the fuck weren't we attacking the middle of the field more? Handley goes for an easy TD and that was it, the only over the middle play we ran. Instead we tailored our offense to fit PERFECTLY into their defense, trying to get to the edge where they have speed and keep the game side to side instead of vertical. And in OT when we had something working we went with ridiculous play calls and lost yardage.

    I've been following this league for quite a while, this will chafe some peopele's asses, but I can't help but feel like we've pissed away a truly special opportunity. There are SO FEW opportunities for teams to do something magical in this league, it just doesn't happen very often, even for the so called "blue bloods" of the Pac. Most teams are lucky if they have one season a decade where they can put it all together, this was that time for the Utes. Sure, we've had a better than expected year, but the thing that separates the magic from the rest of the seasons is recognizing when you have that something special and making the most out of it. We've failed to do that now and I can't feel like we're going to look back on this year and say "what if" for a while. We lose A LOT next year, it's probably going to be another rough couple years until the next crop matures and can put it together again. The thing that makes legendary teams in the Pac is being able to handle each moment and capitalize on them, we've lost hold of a couple moments and now this year will be a good one, instead of a great one. Just my opinion.

    Watching Goff and Kesler move through progressions when their first option isn't open makes me so jealous. Amazing what happens when a QB doesn't stare down his WR's.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-10-31 14:11:58

    Probably my biggest gripe with Wilson, he is utterly incapable of seeing that his first option is covered and making the adjustment necessary to see his second or third option. He either forces the ball to his first interception (see: all 3 INT's against USC) or he tucks and runs.

    So basically it ignores the things we've done up to this point and ranks us 5th because it thinks we have a lower chance of winning our conference and because the rest of our schedule is weaker. The FPI rankings are a complete and utter joke.

    I hope Pease and Co work on the pick play defense, that $#!+ was pissing me off all game.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-10-12 10:50:50

    This is an area a football player can learn a thing or two from a soccer play, recognizing when a shitty play is coming and making an absolute MEAL out of it. Whitt needs to teach the defenders to see a pick play coming, recognize the decoy receiver, and if you are being picked to run full force into that WR and make an absolute show out of all the contact. If you're getting picked off throw your freaking arms in the air, hit that WR, hell even try stumbling and flopping. Cal picked up huge chunks of yards with illegal pick plays and our guys just tried to work around those picking WR's or they even stopped and tried to pass off the WR to a deeper DB/Safety. If the offense is going to use an pick play then the defense has to use the same shady tactics to turn the tables back, even if it includes flopping like a fish to exaggerate contact.

    For the team this bye week couldn't have come at a better time.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-09-27 10:52:21

    The high of coming off a win like last night's is ridiculous, outside the Sugar Bowl win I can't think of a bigger win for the Utes in recent memory. Beating a highly ranked Stanford at home is close, but this was a whole other level of awesome. In a world of "what have you done for me lately" college football that win is going to propel the Utes into the stratosphere. Which is fine, but often a recipe for distraction and disaster. Next up is another team that loves to let it fly and has been playing pretty damn well this year, Cal.

    Utes now get an extra week to come down off the high, settle back into the routine, get some key players healthy, and get focused on Cal. They'll get one more week of game tape prep for the Bears and time to install a specific gameplan for a team that isn't so far different from Oregon's. It's nice to have played Oregon before playing Cal, we won't have to shift gears so dramatically, Cal loves to air it out and go go go.

    If Cal doesn't shit the bed against WSU we could have another top-20 matchup, god I love playing in the Pac-12.

    While we're on the subject of things that grind your gears, I just have to call out the inordinate amount of idiot joggers/runners in this city....

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-07-05 19:36:39

    One thing that REALLY pisses me off that I see a TON of here, pedestrians who like to run in the bike lanes thinking they are "tracks" for them to jog in so they don't have to run on the sidewalks. I even see A LOT of joggers/runners running in the bike lanes AGAINST traffic. They aren't fucking jogging tracks, idiots, they are lanes for vehicles. Stay out of them, pedestrians belong on the sidewalks, you're just increasing the chances that you'll either be hit by a cyclist or a cyclist will have to swerve into traffic in order to avoid your dumbass and potentially get hit by a car. I don't know why it's such a popular thing to do here, maybe it's just a lack of experience with bike lanes from SLC citizens. I see this almost as much as cyclists running stop signs/lights. So if you're a runner who does this or knows runners who like to do this, tell them to PLEASE stop running in the bike lanes.

    One last thing to bitch about with college football this season, I can't figure this out in my head. We curb stomped our bowl opponent while USC eaked out a close win over theirs, neither opponent was that good, neither finished ranked. We actually beat USC head to head AND had the tougher schedule while finishing with the same record.

    It's one spot, in the end, but the AP rankings continue to defy logic. Next year should be interesting, it definitely doesn't get any easier.

    Coach K isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-08 16:12:25

    Jesus, get a grip people, we're not losing this guy for a long time. MAYBE if a top NBA job came calling or one of a half dozen college jobs came calling. Literally there are probably 6 or so college jobs more attractive to a coach like Larry these days, Duke, NC, Kansas, Syracuse, Indiana, and maybe Louisville. He's not going to go to a run of the mill NBA team, he's already coached for 2 average NBA teams (Bucks and Nets) and didn't have a great deal of success doing so. He's not going to go coach for any other college team because they're lateral moves at best.

    Larry K can make money here now that the U is getting full shares of the Pac-12 revenue. If the U really wants to keep him they can pretty much offer any max contract value that Larry could get coaching in the NCAA.

    Finally, what Larry has done was take a program that was in the dumpster and turned them into a LEGIT top-10 team in 3 years. Out west there is exactly one team that is better than the Utes now (and that may be changed in a few weeks once we play them), Arizona. Why go to another P5 conference or higher tier school when you have a program that can now compete for Pac-12 championships, get NCAA bids, and hopefully go deep in the tourney on a regular basis? What am I missing? Unless he has personal reasons he's not going to find a more suitable college coaching position in terms of obtaining the highest goals of this sport. Winning conference championships (P5 conference no less, while not as important as football, is the top of mountain) and having great tournament success on a regular basis is now readily reasonable expectations and out west he is going to have a great chance to do so every year.

    Why leave this situation unless something horrible happens or he personally loses interest? If Larry really wants to he can make Utah into the premier college basketball school in the west. He's built a monster, now he needs to prove he can win in the tourney, then he needs to prove he can do it over several years. What will this team look like when our best players graduate or move on? Can he keep the high level of consistency? These are questions that can motivate Kodiak to stay at Utah and keep winning. We have the facilities, we have the conference affiliation, we have the money, we have the access, we have the history, what else is there?

    Or we could be rational human beings, lift the ban on scientifically studying guns in this country, use the data to craft rational policies that reduce violence, and improve our society as a whole.

    I definitely agree with that, but I think it needs to start with the fact that we have to study these things and STOP thinking that the idea of gun regulation = "going to take all our guns away"

    Does gun regulation = take all your guns away forever? I keep hearing this from the right, that gun regulation means no guns, ever, for everyone in the US. No basis in reality.
