    It's been a long road for you, it's troubling you cling to thus website when you need serious professional help. That help can truly start when you release yourself from any burden this website provides you financially and in the form of time. In the 12 years I've been a member there have been numerous opportunities for you to move on from UF.n and focus on getting yourself better. I urge you to take the opportunity to do so now, for your own sake and the sake of the website.

    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.

    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.

    by PDXUtefan
    2016-01-09 17:38:20

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You can literally buy 1mg ampules of of epinephrine off the internet for $4.50, an epipen contains 0.3mg of epinephrine. The only reason this company is getting away with those prices

    As a 9er fine, Kaep is slow to make a read, wildly inaccurate with his throws, and has an obviously low football IQ. He's athletic and his first instinct is to use his legs, but he'll often make the wrong read in critical situations.

    If you were a school actively promoting a team with an average age higher than the normal graduation age of a typical college kid would you want that information openly displayed? TDS has enough problems as it is

    Not draining Lake Powell into Lake Mead to at least maintain water levels at this point would be a massive mistake. The amount of water lost from Powell to sources below the lake are staggering.

    Completely agree, when I lived in Oregon I worked with a surgeon in one of my labs, for the first year I had no idea he was LDS. I find that mormon people who weren't born/raised here are generally WAY more "normal"

    The reality is that Utah is a very polarizing place, you're either LDS and adhere to the culture that comes with that or you're not and you have to live in a place that is generally oppressive to the non-LDS lifestyle

    Absolutely ridiculous decision. The government has overstepped their bounds here, the only reason it remains a schedule 1 is because the feds make so much money from the failed war on drugs.

    What makes you think the WCC is more liberal than the Big-12? Having gone to a WCC school for college I can assure you most WCC schools (which are all private, religious, "liberal" arts universities) are beholden to religious values like TDS is.

    I personally don't believe an individual who is grounded in reality and capable of true critical thought with any amount of real intelligence could look at Trump and think "this man is qualified in any capacity to be POTUS", I really don't.

    I've broken two toes, fractured my ankle, broken my tibia, torn my rectus femoris (the largest quad muscle), fractured a rib, and broken a finger. None of them hurt in the moment, hell I've had paper cuts that hurt more the second they happened.

    Silver addressed this in a very long article on his site, his site's early forecasting for Trump wasn't based on a statistical model, but his Polls-cast model during the actual Primary voting correctly predicted 91% of the State Primary votes.

    The Fox News national poll released yesterday that had Clinton +9 was very damaging for Trump, that's for sure. Getting crushed like that on the Republican's biggest media outlet was not a good sign for Trump.

    The beauty of being on the U's school of Medicine network is that it auto logs you into journals, but the U doesn't have access (or pays subscription fees) for every journal. So I'm SOL on some of them.
