    What an awesome day to be a Ute. We'll be remembering this one for a LONG time. :)

    Now as far as football is concerned, it's time to cheer on our conference-mates in all of their bowl games. And hopefully Oregon will run the table and bring a national championship to the conference.

    That will mean:

    1) bowl money for everyone, and
    2) shove the media SEC lover's nose into the mud where it belongs.

    A great example of what moving to the PAC-12 has done for Utah. They most certainly don't play at mid-major level any longer.

    Hopefully in future bowls they can get matched up with some SEC fresh meat.

    I think most everyone has seen the extremely engaging preview of "American Sniper" movie (directed by Clint Eastwood) that's coming out in a couple of weeks.

    The e-book the movie is based off is on sale right now for $2.50.

    Just got an e-mail from a friend who lives in a rural town in eastern Washington. They're all excited because they're getting a Buffalo Wild Wings in their area.

    That is some sort of sad to get excited for. Buffalo Wild Wings is one of the most obnoxious, overpriced, lousy food chains there is.

    I hate to burst their bubble, but just may have to in order to save them the pain of visiting that Chuck E Cheese clone for 20-somethings.

    Man, something needs to be done about the free throwing, though. 64%?? If Coach K could get the team into the low 70 percentages (high 70 percentages preferred), this would have been an easy, double-digit win.

    That's going to bite the Utes in the rear end if they don't improve the FT shooting come conference play time.

    Let's talk bowl games...

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-12-10 12:40:13

    Here are my predictions:

    Colorado State vs. Utah - Utah's defense and Special Teams rule the day. But CSU still gets their points (#8 passing offense in the nation). Utah by 3

    Arizona State vs. Duke - Duke finds out the hard way that ASU is not Troy, Elon and Tulane. ASU by 23

    Nebraska vs. USC - Nebraska lost every game to a ranked opponent this year and playing with no head coach. USC has superior athletes. USC by 13

    Maryland vs. Stanford - Maryland lost the two games it played against nationally ranked opponents and was crushed by Wisconsin 52-7 (who was subsequently crushed by Ohio State 59-0). This is not a good team and welcome to Stanford's #1 defense. Stanford by 17

    Arizona vs. Boise State - Arizona recovers from it's blow-out PAC-12 Championship loss and reminds Boise State which conference they're in. Arizona by 14

    Florida State vs. Oregon - FSU has been living on the edge all season long, even against inferior opponents. Their time is up against the best team in the nation led by the 2014 Heisman winner. Oregon by 30

    Kansas State vs. UCLA - Kansas State has difficulty vs high-powered offenses. However they have a consistently strong offense and have played an equal strength of schedule as UCLA (KS is #8, UCLA is #9). UCLA blows some late opportunities as they have been prone to do all season. Kansas State by 3

    Oklahoma State vs. Washington - OSU has lost 5 of its last 6 games and the one win was an OT win. They have an awful defense - ranked 100th going against an equally awful UW passing offense, 98th in the nation. Washington has a good running game and superior defense though, giving them the win. Washington by 9

    Anyone else care to pick 'em?

    Funny quote...

    2014-11-28 08:46:49

    Was reading some articles on last night's Seahawks thumping of the 49'er's and saw these two reader comments that I thought were pretty funny:

    "Why do I see a reality show in 2 years coming out with Kaepernick, RGIII and Johnny Manziel as roommates?"

    Followed with this by another poster:

    "The Back-ups"
    "Running Outta Time"
    "Media Marriage"
    "Number Two's"

    Unexpected...

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-11-26 15:02:08

    After 20 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening when the wife felt her husband begin to fondle her in ways he hadn't in quite some time.

    It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back.

    He then caressed her shoulders and neck, slowly working his way down her assets. Then he placed his hand on her left inner arm, caressed down her side to her leg and calf. He continued on the inside of her leg and suddenly stopped, rolled over and started to watch the TV.

    As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, "That was wonderful. Why did you stop?"

    He replied, "I found the remote."

    OK - new post about bowl possibilities...

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-11-25 11:07:29

    To follow up on my "which QB is going to play" post.

    So here are the bowl games that the PAC-12 are involved in and where I think are going:

    Lower Tier Bowls
    Las Vegas Bowl - Cal (if they beat the zoobs this weekend) or Stanford
    Holiday Bowl - USC, Utah or Stanford
    Sun Bowl - USC, Utah or Stanford

    ********************************

    Upper Tier Bowls
    Foster Farms Bowl - AZ
    Fiesta Bowl - UCLA
    Cactus Bowl - Washington
    Alamo Bowl - ASU
    Rose Bowl - Oregon

    That leaves one team left over from the lower tier bowls - 3 bowls, 4 eligible teams. Who really goes where?

    So who do you think starts at QB this Saturday? Wilson or Manning? Or someone else?

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-11-25 10:32:49

    Win or lose at Colorado this weekend, the Utes are going to end up in the same bowl game. Probably the Holiday or Sun Bowl.

    Be a good opportunity to give some game reps to someone new, methinks.

    He's been known to stroll around the Seattle waterfront and I guess it was my time to see him. He was sitting on a concrete block near the railroad crossing talking on the phone. Was wearing a gray hoodie as somewhat of a disguise, but as soon as I saw him, I knew who it was. I smiled, pointed at him and nodded my head and he smiled back and nodded his head. There's my 5 seconds of fame. I think the guy is crazy for running around the streets by himself. If the locals found out he'd be completely mobbed.

    Hope I don't jinx the team as I've been a naysayer most of the year, but I fully expect a win this Saturday.

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-11-17 11:27:51

    Arizona is an 8-2 team, but they haven't played a defensive juggernaut all season long and their two losses came against two decent defensive teams - UCLA (#4 conference total defense) and USC (#2 conference total defense).

    They're a middle of the road team being average in almost every statistical category. With this being a home game in the cold, possibly in the snow, the Utah defense will shut down their average offense, the special teams will out perform their average special teams (especially in kick/punt returns and field goals), and their average defense cancels out Utah's below average offense. Advantage Utah.

    Unless Utah pulls a complete stinker, a win at Colorado should be about as automatic as they come. Ending the season at 9-3, a primo bowl appearance and a probable Top Ten ranking.

    GO UTES!!

    I'm celebrating the win too - a win is a win. Just putting out there the reality of what was involved. That defensive backfield was awful - there were broken coverages on almost every play.

    TW had the game of the season against a 2-9 team with a defensive backfield completely filled with freshmen including walk-on freshmen. I wouldn't be handing him too much credit for that.

    Against a completely freshman backfield - including walk-on freshmen. I wouldn't be so quick to pat him on the back. The announcer was pointing out all game long many of his passes that were just plain bad or late.

    You know, I hate Oregon more than I hate my ex-wife. But I really want to see them in the playoffs. Just to see them smoke the east coast teams (especially any SEC team) to provide the PAC-12 some validation.

    Don't forget about the north teams. Stanford and Washington will be headed to bowls also - they may fit in that mix. I do see Utah going to the Vegas bowl. Oh well, beggars can't be choosy.

    Just like in gymnastics and softball, the PAC-12 rules the country in volleyball. It's expected that TEN teams out of the PAC-12 will make the tourney - including our Utes! :D

    It's the peripheral purchases that make them their money. Advertise a handful of things at cost - or even below cost - everyone comes for that but leaves the store with 20 other items at regular price.

    He never quantified it as one side has depth, and the other doesn't. It was always, "Utes are going to be successful this year because they finally have depth."
    (25 days ago, 0 stars)

    Our depth sucked? You've posted 100 times this year that the reason the Utes will be successful is because they finally have depth.

    Colorado is starting something like 439 freshmen and have a new coach. Even with that they've given several teams scares and been competitive. My point is they are evolving, the Utah offense is not.
    (25 days ago, 0 stars)

    I think a caveat you can add to that is the conference the Utes are in

    OK - new post about bowl possibilities...
    (26 days ago, 0 stars)

    Why not? They're considered "equal" bowls, and are played on the same day. I think the main consideration is fan attendance and makes a lot more sense for one of the AZ schools to go to the Sun Bowl.

    So who do you think starts at QB this Saturday? Wilson or Manning? Or someone else?

    Certainly not compared to the guys who are throwing up 400+ rushing yards PER GAME type numbers. There are a lot of RB's in the NCAA. I'd put him at above average, but not particularly noteworthy.

    I very much doubt he would go higher than 3rd round. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but running backs are no longer "sexy" NFL picks. They're being paid even less than offensive linemen now.

    Center doesn't snap until the guard resets - looking at him out of the corner of his eye. Pretty effective way to do a snap count in a loud stadium. And it's really spread - I see numerous teams doing this now, even in the NFL.
