    ESPN weighs in on the game...

    Utes over Wolverines

    I'm pretty nervous about those two obvious TD long pass plays that was over the head of their receivers...

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-09-03 20:11:08

    Michigan may not be able to make those plays, but every PAC-12 team we go up against can. This game could easily be 17-10 Michigan with just those two completions. The Utes defensive backfield needs some work.

    Otherwise, a solid first half, especially from the defensive front 7.

    Unbelievable...

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-09-02 20:01:12

    So tonight I met some of my beer drinking buddies after work to get caught up and have a few.

    Sitting behind us was a table of ladies doing the same - secretary/admin types ranging in age from late 20's to mid 40's. Every once in a while I couldn't help tune into their conversation - "My new shoes," "the cute new guy in the office," "damn kids," "the latest fad diet" and "I"m thinking about cutting my hair." Of course they're also glued to their cell phones while this "conversation" is going on texting like there's no tomorrow to who knows.

    Us guys are talking about important stuff - sports and guns. None of us has bothered bringing in our cell phones from the car.

    So the time comes for them to get their bill, and the conversation goes pretty much as you would expect as they pass the bill around, "Who had the extra blu cheese?" "I only had one glass of wine," "I had a small salad," "this isn't what I ordered," and on and on it goes for a solid 20 minutes as they try to negotiate their way to paying as little as possible. They pay in every way imaginable, credit cards, debit cards, some cash, some credit and one lady asks for change only in one dollar bills. In the end they finally figure it out and leave the waitress about an 8% tip "because she was rude." (She wasn't.)

    But before they leave, I hear one lady say to the other, "You still owe me fourteen cents." If I'd had one more beer I would have walked over to their table and said, "Are you fucking kidding me? FOURTEEN CENTS??"

    So our bill comes and we do what we always do. No one looks at the bill - everyone throws at least a $20 bill on the table and we bail, leaving the waitress probably a 30% tip at least. No one cares, no one has ever cared.

    But I will never forget that. Grown, mature ladies arguing about FOURTEEN CENTS.

    Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. It's a fact.

    Nice enough guy and seems reasonably competent.

    BUT..the guy eats all day long and he's a "smacker" while he eats. SMACK, SMACK, SMACK. Plus he talks with his mouth full. Super annoying.

    Wondering how long I can take it before I hand him a horse feedbag to hang over his head and be done with it.

    It's official - Vernon Adams the starting QB for Oregon

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-28 16:43:47

    Which doesn't surprise me one iota. I've seen the guy play live in 3 games and he's crazy good and fits perfectly into Oregon's system.

    And in a strange twist of fate, he starts against his old team:

    Vernon Adams

    And UCLA has pegged their freshman all-star Josh Rosen as their starter:

    Josh Rosen

    So things are starting to fall in place for teams. Except for the UW who STILL hasn't picked a QB out of the 3 that are in running for the starting position.

    Humongous NFL Fantasy Football Survivor League

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-27 10:33:47

    Had a buddy tell me about this last year and this year I signed up. Some guy on the east coast runs a HUGE NFL Survivor Fantasy Football league with hundreds of entrants. Buy-in is $100, so the pot is really large. Last year, my buddy split the pot with someone else and walked away with $6,700.

    For any of you who don't know what a Survivor League is, you pick one NFL team to win each week. Once you pick that team, you can't pick them again. If your team doesn't win, you're out. So extremely easy and only takes 5 minutes of your time a week.

    For anyone who's interested in winning zillions and zillions of dollars, here's the link to get on board:

    UW Husky game tickets...

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-26 21:17:36

    BoilermakerUte posted this morning about this, but I think it's worth reposting as it got buried pretty quick.

    There are tickets galore available for this game for anyone wanting to travel up to Seattle to watch it.

    My brother Utenut, his son and his girlfriend are coming up and I just bought us 4 seats on the 25 yard line, 13 rows up on the visitor side of the field behind the Utah bench. Tickets weren't cheap - $115 each with service charges, but you'll pay $80 a ticket from the Utah ticket office to sit in the awful visitors section anyway. If you're going to make the trip all the way to Seattle just to see the game, might as well do it right, pay a little extra and get a great view of the game.

    So if you're planning on it, here's the link and do some shopping!

    ...here they are less than two weeks before the season opener AT Boise State and Petersen still hasn't made up his mind on which of 3 QB's is going to start.

    Going to be an ugly year for them which means this is the Ute's best chance at beating them. They'd better do it, dammit.

    College Survivor Fantasy Football

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-23 09:39:33

    Here's my annual post seeking out anyone who wants to join a college survivor fantasy football league a buddy of mine runs. A couple of posters here have played each year and I think one of them won either last year or the year before.

    At any rate, how it works in survivor fantasy football is you pick just one team to win each week. That's it. BUT, you can never pick that team again. The teams to pick from this year are the PAC-12, SEC and Army, Notre Dame, *cough cough* BYU *cough cough* and Michigan. If you make it to the end, then you pick bowl game winners.

    Buy-in is $50. We're going to a new website this year where the league fee is $20, but that is taken out of the buy-in. The winner gets the remaining combined pot. But it's a much better deal than what we were doing before. The website shows point spreads and if you get forget to pick, the website will automatically pick the best odds game for you one time only.

    Board mail me if you're interested.

    Of course Seattle will win the Super Bowl - as long as they give Marshawn the damn ball on the 1 yard line.

    But if anyone's been watching the preseason, Philadelphia is absolutely tearing it up. Humiliating Indianapolis last week 36-10 and doing the same against Baltimore this week 40-17.

    I know it's preseason and that means nothing. And Chip Kelly took a lot of criticism for his off-season moves. But hard to argue with the results (so far) though, and if this pans out into the regular season - watch out!

    Screen Encroachment

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-19 11:41:21

    Was watching one of the pre-season NFL games on the NFL channel last night.

    One thing that's becoming obvious is how much television screen is now being occupied by various graphics.

    In the bottom of the screen is an over sized scroll bar. It's about two times the height it needs to be. In the upper, right-hand corner is the NFL TV Channel logo (like I need to see that to know which channel I'm on). And in the upper left-hand corner is the score/play/time/yardage box PLUS an extended ad banner that rotates ads for various sponsors.

    Literally 1/4 (or more) of the entire screen is being used up by something other than the game broadcast. ESPN and FOX are doing the same, but not quite as obtrusive. Yet.

    Just wondering how much further they're going to push trying to squeeze ads and logos on TV screens. It's getting to the point where it's actually blocking out portions of the play. When they started doing this years ago, it wasn't bad at all - very minimal and only the score/play/time box was showing. Now it's very noticeable and detracting from watching the game.

    Women Complete Ranger School

    Props to them - it's a tough school.

    But now what? Ranger school teaches you very specific combat leadership skills, but by law women can't serve in any of the combined arms combat units - infantry, artillery and armor.

    Even though a significant accomplishment for these two ladies, I still put it down as a PR stunt. Neither of these women will ever be put in a situation to use that training, and those precious Ranger School slots - 19 all total for the women in this class - could have been used by soldiers who will need that leadership training.

    As a retired Navy UDT and Army Ranger, I really wish politicians would stay out of the business of training combat soldiers.

    The worst of two worlds

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-16 01:33:28

    I've spent the last 3 days moving to a new location (still in the Seattle area). For those of you who haven't moved in a while, I'd like to remind you that moving is some sort of colossal pain in the ass.

    At any rate, on one of my move trips from old to new place, I notice a car on the freeway that's all over the place. Break lights on and off, half-in and half-out of lanes, crazy speed changes, the whole nine yards. I think to myself, "Holy smokes, whoever this is, they are some sort of hammered and it's only 8pm."

    So I cautiously pull alongside hoping not to get hit and take a peek inside. Wanna know what I see?

    Athlon's PAC-12 Preseason QB Rankings

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-08-11 21:06:43

    I think this is a pretty glaring commentary on the state of the QB situation at Utah and how little emphasis is placed on that position.

    Of the four QBs ranked below Utah, three are freshmen (two true freshmen) projected to win the starting positions at UCLA, OSU and UW. The fourth is Luke Falk a walk-on from Logan - at WSU. Vernon Adams, an FCS transfer at Oregon is ranked higher. Even Seifu at CU is ranked higher than our SENIOR starting QB.

    Something's gotta change.

    They're trying to put a positive spin on this season, but they'll be lucky to win 4-5 games. I don't care if Howdy Doody is the Utah QB - when this game comes around, the Utes should finally get this "we've never beat UW" monkey off their back. I expect a 2TD+ win for the Utes.

    Listening to local sports radio on the way home from work, and there is some serious concern at the UW...

    Was really well done. Going to be interesting to see how they all come to grips with it. Nice warm up for the regular series.

    Especially in Utah where if you even sniff a drink you're automatically classified as an alcoholic by you know which group.

    Your Wilson homerism aside, I agree with your post - no way in hell Stanford only wins 4 games this year. Minimum 8. Red star for you. :D

    Bradford looked good tonight for not having played in a year. Mark Sanchez is really standing out though. His passing was impressive in both games.

    DVR the game, stay away from the zoobs and your cell phone for the scores. Go home enjoy the game while blowing through commercials. :)

    Virtual Reality as a football training tool?
    (15 days ago, 0 stars)

    Unusual, but not completely unheard of. When you have a Heisman candidate in the mix, I don't think this should be much of a surprise.

    I never addressed the quote. My comment was about the b.s. preface that "Republicans were ordered" claim that Occupy Democrats tossed in to inflame and embellish.

    That really had to be the greatest day in Utah football history. I was giddy for months after that and took every opportunity to rub it in the face of those 'Bama knuckleheads. Still do. :D

    What - that's a shock to you? That conservatives attempt to fight Obama's stimulus package? That's some sort of revealing news?
    (16 days ago, 1 stars)

    LOL...like I'm going to believe anything "Occupy Democrats" has to say.
    (16 days ago, 2 stars)

    Well, you know which crowd they're catering to. Every time I visit SLC the radio sports jocks drive me crazy. The bias and lack of Utah coverage is asinine considering the conference they're playing in and the success they've had.

    Fair enough - yours is a valid opinion. Based on his past performance though, I think he's going to tear it up at Michigan and will give Urban a legitimate challenge (after he gets his program up and running) for Big Ten championships.
    (17 days ago, 0 stars)

    He's had extreme success coaching at 3 different levels. And the laundry list of great coaches who never made it to the championship game is endless.
    (17 days ago, 0 stars)

    Oh, I don't know. Maybe it's him taking a nothing San Diego Toreros team (Pioneer League) to 3 straight winning seasons including two 11-1 seasons.
    (17 days ago, 2 stars)

    Did you read the first line of that article? "Based on ONE practice..."
    (17 days ago, 0 stars)

    Agreed - that's why I'm confident in a Ute win. But they'll come out a lot more organized and confident even for the first game than last year's team. Harbaugh will at least have that going on.
    (17 days ago, 0 stars)

    "Forget the hype about Harbaugh." It's not hype - he's the real deal. Arguably one of the top 3 coaches in the nation.
    (17 days ago, 4 stars)

    Believe I've seen that already - maybe during one of the bowl games last year? Really obnoxious stuff.

    Thanks Bro. Appreciate it. And you know I never spoke much of what I was doing. And when asked, kept it pretty vanilla. Mom was rattled enough just that I was in the military...LOL.

    UDT 21. That was back in the day where you had to be in UDT for 4-6 years before SEAL consideration. Now there's no UDT - they rolled them all into SEAL teams.

    That drop by Domo when he was wide, wide open and the ball hit him right in the hands in the 4th qtr was awful. Just awful. There was the game winning play right there.

    I don't think Americans are ready to see women kicking down doors in Fallujah, storming the beaches of Omaha or crawling through the jungles of Vietnam. Even more so, I don't think combat troops are ready to follow women into those situations.

    Well, two women did it...

    I'd check into going the TiVO route. You can buy a DVR from them (still pay $15 a month for the service), but can get pretty much everything you described for pennies compared to the big subscription companies.

    Actually, going into last week's game, they had the #4 conference pass defense. Which allowed them to blitz even more than they normally do. We're going to see that for the rest of the season. (3681)
