    Just wanted to give a plug for a website I came across.

    System-tips.net

    I was hit with a virus earlier today and while searching for a solution I found this site. The site administrator helped me out, no charge. And there is lots of good info on his site.

    If you get hit with a virus or are having computer problems of any kind, look up this site and see if they can help you.

    Love the news that Wilson is back, but cautious optimism is warranted.

    He has been cleared to play Spring Ball with no contact.

    What if He doesn't get cleared for contact before the season? Or ever?

    Having Travis participate in Spring Ball is important, if he is cleared to play full contact before the opener.

    However, it is detrimental, if he isn't eventually cleared to play full contact because he will be taking time from the other QB's and their development.

    Really hoping He makes it all the way back.

    Go Travis! Go Utes!

    Some things to consider when looking at Utah's #68 recruiting ranking on Rivals.

    by UteThunder
    2014-02-06 14:00:21

    - #68 Utah only "signed" 19 players this year while 60 of the 67 schools ranked ahead of Utah signed more than 19 players with an estimated average of 6 more players per school.

    - Schools ranked higher than Utah with the same 19 or fewer signees(# of signees in parentheses):

    #10 USC (19)
    #18 UCLA (18)
    #31 Michigan (16)
    #40 Virginia (17)
    #54 Maryland (17)
    #58 Duke (18)
    #60 Iowa (19)

    - Utah's Rivals score is 1149, or just over 60 points per commit. If Utah were to add 6 more players averaging 60 points per player to get to the average of 25 signees, Utah's score would jump to 1509 moving Utah from #68 to right behind #35 Missouri(28) and ahead of #36 Washington(23).

    - Several schools ranked ahead of Utah have 9+ more commits:

    #4 Florida State (29)
    #5 Tennessee (31)
    #17 Kentucky (29)
    #25 VA Tech (28)
    #27 OK State (28)
    #28 Arizona (28)
    #30 NC State (31)
    #35 Missouri (28)
    #39 South Florida (28)
    #42 Boston College (28)
    #49 Oregon State (28)
    #60 Western Michigan (28)

    Even if Utah added 10-12 players I don't think their class would move into the top 5 with the Vols and 'Noles, but if Utah added 9 or 10 more players this class would easily jump into the top 25 with the Hokies and Wildcats.

    Bottom line: Utah didn't have as many spots available this year as a lot of other schools which makes Utah's class look worse than it actually is via the #68 ranking.

    For all of the pre-season talk about how great Bronco is with more than a week to prepare and how Holmoe had masterfully set up their schedule for success, BYU sure fell flat on their faces this year.

    Season Opener @ Virginia - LOSS
    Post Bye #1 vs. Utah - LOSS
    Post Bye #2 @ Wisconsin - LOSS
    Post Bye #3* @ Notre Dame - LOSS
    Bowl Game vs. Washington - LOSS

    All 5 of their losses came in games they had extra time to prepare. I guess it's a little tougher to win, even with extra time to prepare, when you aren't playing teams like Idaho, UNLV, Idaho State, & Wyoming.

    *I realize they played Idaho State the week before Notre Dame, but let's be realistic here; that was a pseudo bye week interrupted by a scrimmage.

    One positive about the season . . . Whit seems to have learned from at least one of his past failings by not pulling one of the Freshman QBs off their redshirt.

    by UteThunder
    2013-11-24 13:25:34

    Looking back, most fans were upset that Wynn wasn't allowed to redshirt for a year and play as Cain's backup for a year in order to develop, mature, and grow his body to deal with the rigors of college football. Maybe Wynn wouldn't have suffered all of those injuries if he hadn't been thrown into the fire so early.

    On top of Wynn's injuries, the current lack of QB depth can be traced back to this decision. Starting a true freshman QB signaled to all future QB recruits that they would likely have to wait at least 3 years to get their shot if they came to Utah.

    I know some here on UF.N think Whit should have burned the redshirt on at least one of the Freshman to get Utah to a bowl game, but looking at the long term health of the program, I'm glad Kyle didn't do it.

    Assuming he survives this season, Whittingham will need to win 8 games minimum next year to avoid the axe.

    Don't tell me about season ticket renewals.

    Don't tell me about strength of schedule.

    Don't tell me about turnover at the OC position.

    Don't tell me about turnover at the QB position.

    Two of those things are a result of Kyle's leadership[OC & QB], one of those things He wanted[Michigan & Pac-12], and the last one is more related to Urban's success and the Pac-12 invite than they are to Kyle's W/L total.

    Any coach who loses this much(19 losses over 3 seasons with 1 more possible loss coming next week) AND cycles through a new OC every year for 6 years straight, does not deserve to be retained. The QB & OC situations coupled with the losses show a lack of leadership and possibly a lack of competence on KW's behalf.

    Great news! Utah wasn't as futile on 3rd down as we have been led to believe!

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-23 20:22:33

    The stat totals list 1/14, but looking at the play by play recap on ESPN.com you can see Utah was actually 2/14.


    3rd Down Conversions

    On Utah's second possession in the 1st quarter, Utah converted a 3rd & 6 from the Utah 29 by completing a 9 yard pass to Dres Anderson.

    On Utah's 3rd possession in the 3rd quarter, Utah converted a 3rd & 1 from the Utah 31 by completing a 6 yard pass to James Poole.

    If anyone can find video of the kick return for a TD that was called back for holding, you will be able to clearly see holding.

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-22 15:24:29

    I just checked the return on my DVR and there was definitely holding on that return. I'm not sure it was the same hold the ref saw because the flag wasn't really thrown in the same area/direction, but it was a clear & blatant hold nonetheless.

    #16 or #18 for BYU(I can't get a good look at his number) holds our left gunner between the 17 & 20 yard lines near the BYU sideline as Hine goes running past. The holding is so obvious you can see our gunner trying to turn his shoulders to run the other direction but the BYU player is pulling his jersey the other direction with both hands keeping him from turning and running.

    Another call the refs missed on the final play of the game. HOLDING on BYU.

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-22 14:20:28

    Watch the BYU left tackle. He wraps his arms around our right defensive end and tackles him. Pause it at :05 and you can see the BYU player's left arm wrapped completely around the defenders back.




    So not only was there NOT defensive PI. There was OFFENSIVE PI that wasn't called and a blatant hold on the O-Line that wasn't called. BYU fans have absolutely no room to complain about the officials.

    The Curse of Max Hall . . . .

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-22 11:56:04

    Ever since Max Hall unleashed his hate filled tirade of lies about Utah back in November 2009, BYU has been cursed.

    Since November 2009 . . .

    - BYU landed the #1 QB recruit in the nation only to run him out of town.

    - The Pac-12 invited Utah & Colorado.

    - BYU's plan to join the WAC blew up in their face.

    - Harvey Unga misses his senior season due to honor code violation.

    - BYU gets crushed by Utah State in Logan prompting the firing of their DC.

    - Brandon Burton blocks the game winning FG in the final MWC matchup between Utah & BYU.

    - BYU fires arguably the best OC they've ever had, replacing Anae with Doman.

    - Utah crushes BYU 54-10 in the first non-conference meeting between the two.

    - Riley Nelson transferred to BYU and became their starting QB.

    - Big XII talks with BYU break down. Big XII officials call BYU "a real piece of work" and move on to TCU & West Virginia.

    - Big East comes to the same conclusion as the Big XII.

    - Utah beats BYU 3 times in one night.

    - Scheduling difficulties: A seemingly endless stream of 2-for-1s and 1-and-dones. While Utah gets a home-and-home from Michigan in addition to the perpetual home-and-homes that comes with Pac-12 membership.

    - Rivalry game is taking a two year break. Utah's decision.

    - BYU is no longer getting 3-for-1 or 2-for-1 from Utah State. Now they play the Aggies on equal terms.

    - BYU fires their new "best OC ever!" and bring back the other guy who had become stale and predictable. The only difference now is that he will be stale and predictable at a much faster pace.

    - Taysom Hill transfers to BYU and becomes their starting QB.

    - Utah beats BYU 20-13 in Kyle Van Noy's "Super Bowl".

    - 4 straight losses to Utah.

    Have I missed anything?

    Enjoy the curse Cougars. It's only going to get worse for BYU.

    And Texas fires their Defensive Coordinator. I didn't think their staff would survive the weekend intact. Their OC should be next to go. They couldn't pick up a blitz and they did almost NOTHING to protect their QB and give him a chance to throw.

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-08 14:40:26

    Why wouldn't they roll him out away from the blitz? Why not try some screen passes before the 4th quarter?

    I'm still shocked at the way Texas refused to change what they were doing on both sides of the ball.

    When it happens, I hope Whitt responds by saying, "No more questions about Oregon State . . . ? Okay. If you'll excuse me, I have a Pac-12 opener to prepare for." And walks out of the room.

    If a RB rushes for 2 yards or less on 50% or more of their carries but his total for the game = 4+ ypc, would you say he is a good/effective RB? Would you want him on your team? And his name is NOT Barry Sanders.

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-04 14:34:36

    My thinking is that if your RB is rushing for 0-2 yards(or a loss of yards) on the majority of his carries, he is hurting your team more than he is helping even though he "makes up for it" by breaking off the occasional run of 10+ yards. By rushing for such small gains so frequently he is leaving his team in long 2nd & 3rd down situations.

    All RBs are going to have some carries that go nowhere, and sometimes all you need is 1-2 yards for a 1st down, but those should be the exception and not the norm.

    After the opening weekend, teams I feel better/worse/same about our chances for a win . . .

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-02 10:53:54

    Feel slightly better about Utah's chances of beating . . .

    - Oregon State: Gave up 49 points in a loss to Big Sky member E. Washington.

    - BYU: Offense looked horrible, particularly the O-Line & QB; the defense looked good but it was against a bad ACC team with an even worse QB than BYU. Lost 19-16 @ Virginia.

    - USC: Less than stellar performance against a very bad Hawaii team. Won 30-13.


    Feel slightly worse about Utah's chances of beating . . .

    - Weber State: Scored 50 in a win over S.F. Austin. But more than that, it is the 8 FCS teams that upset FBS teams this weekend.

    - UCLA: Crushed Nevada 58-20.

    - Washington State: The Cougars played Auburn tough in a 31-24 loss and had a couple of late possessions where they drove deep into Auburn territory, but they just couldn't score the tying touchdown.

    - Colorado: Looked like a very improved team over what they were last year in a 41-27 win over CSU. Hard to tell though if CSU is really bad or if CU is really improved.


    Feel exactly the same about Utah's chances of beating . . .

    - Stanford: Stanford opens their season this Saturday vs SJSU.

    - Arizona: Beat Northern Arizona 35-0. Not an impressive opener, but not a poor one either.

    - Arizona State: ASU opens their season this Thursday vs. Sacramento State.

    - Oregon: Beat Nicholls State 66-3. Looks like Oregon is picking up right where they left off. Then again, it was an FCS opponent.

    One area of definite improvement on Thursday: Sustained Drives

    by UteThunder
    2013-09-01 17:04:50

    Last year, the offense routinely had drives lasting anywhere from 1 to 4 plays before a turnover or a punt. In many of our games, the number of drives with 4 plays or fewer was greater than the number of drives with 5 plays or more.

    On Thursday, Utah had 8 drives of 5 plays or more and only 5 drives of 4 plays or fewer(one of which was a 4 play drive to end the 2nd quarter).

    Having the ability to sustain drives will be big for our defense going against all of these hurry-up/no-huddle offenses.

    It's about a quarter after five in Virginia right now. How funny would it be if this weather delay carries through till tomorrow and they have to cancel/postpone the game?

    by UteThunder
    2013-08-31 15:16:26

    I guess they would finish the game when both teams have a bye, right?

    BYU has a bye on September 14th. No secret that they scheduled that bye to give themselves an extra week to prepare for Utah.

    Coincidentally, Virginia has a bye on . . . . SEPTEMBER 14th!

    If this weather delay can last 6 hours or so(wishful thinking, I know) BYU's carefully planned advantage will be negated because they will have to fly back to Virginia to finish the game a week before playing Utah!

    I hope so badly that this happens.

    Predictions for Utah, Utah State, & BYU

    by UteThunder
    2013-08-26 12:08:32

    Utah
    Utah State----------------WIN
    Weber State---------------WIN
    Oregon State--------------WIN
    @ BYU---------------------WIN
    UCLA----------------------WIN
    Stanford------------------LOSS
    @ Arizona-----------------WIN
    @ USC---------------------WIN
    Arizona State-------------WIN
    @ Oregon------------------LOSS
    @ Washington State--------WIN
    Colorado------------------WIN

    Regular Season Record: 10-2

    Most of this prediction is based on how close Utah was to winning so many of the games we lost last year despite all of our deficiencies. Utah State, Oregon State, UCLA, Arizona, & USC were all there for the taking but we just couldn’t make those handful of plays in each game that were necessary to turn the tide in our favor. I believe our deficiencies have been addressed and the team will make those plays this year. Perhaps I am being a little too optimistic, but I really believe Utah is going to win at least 8 games with a good chance at 10 wins . . . . Then again, I have my moments when I am worried we will finish 5-7 again.


    Utah State
    @ Utah---------------------LOSS
    @ Air Force----------------LOSS
    Weber State----------------WIN
    @ USC----------------------LOSS
    @ San Jose State-----------WIN
    BYU------------------------WIN
    Boise State----------------LOSS
    @ New Mexico---------------WIN
    Hawaii---------------------WIN
    @ UNLV---------------------WIN
    Colorado State-------------WIN
    Wyoming--------------------WIN

    Regular Season Record: 8-4

    Many people believe the Aggies will take a huge step back this year because of the coaching and conference change. I disagree. Returning 18 starters including their QB and all 5 O-Linemen will be huge in smoothing the Aggies’ transition from Andersen to Wells and from the WAC to the MWC. On top of that, it’s not like going from the WAC to the depleted MWC is going to be that difficult of a transition. Utah State has already been playing a “MWC” schedule for most of the last 4 years. And of the 12 opponents the Aggies face this year, they have played 9 of them at least once in the last 4 seasons: BYU(4), San Jose(4), Hawaii(3), Utah(2), Boise(2), Colorado State(2), Wyoming(1), Weber(1), UNLV(1). On top of that, they have played Nevada(2), Fresno(2), & San Diego State(1) in recent years and the Aggies avoid all 3 of those teams this year. The MWC schedule is not going to be anywhere near the shock to USU as the Pac-12 has been for Utah.


    BYU
    @ Virginia-----------------WIN
    Texas----------------------LOSS
    Utah-----------------------LOSS
    Middle Tennessee-----------WIN
    @ Utah State---------------LOSS
    Georgia Tech---------------WIN
    @ Houston------------------WIN
    Boise State----------------LOSS
    @ Wisconsin----------------LOSS
    Idaho State----------------WIN
    @ Notre Dame---------------LOSS
    @ Nevada-------------------WIN

    Regular Season Record: 6-6

    Last year, BYU got a small taste of what Utah has dealt with for the last 2 seasons – a big time schedule. And it showed with the Cougars posting their second worst record since Bronco’s first season. Against the “Big Boys” on their schedule they were 2-4(Washington State, Utah, Boise State, Oregon State, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech). This year, BYU gets a bigger taste of that big time schedule, playing 6 teams from BCS conferences plus Boise State and what should be 3 very difficult road games at USU, Houston, & Nevada. I expect BYU to experience many of the same struggles Utah has had the past 2 years.

    by UteThunder
    2013-07-22 13:54:22

    Every team is allowed the same number of practices during fall camp, but because our opener is 2 days earlier it seems that we get 2 extra days of practice. The 2 extra days of practice don't happen during fall camp obviously; they would be the 2 days following the opener.

    2-for-1 for USC, Arizona, and Stanford . . . If this continues, it just might kill the Utah/byu rivalry.

    by UteThunder
    2013-07-11 17:49:59

    We can't be the only Pac-12 team giving byu 1-for-1 while everyone else gets 2-for-1.

    I understand an elite program like USC getting a 2-for-1, but Stanford and Arizona are no more elite than Utah. They both play in stadiums with a capacity of ~ 50,000 and they both struggle to fill their stadiums; playing in front of 1/2 to 3/4 full stadiums on a regular basis. On top of that, aside from Stanford's 3 most recent seasons and a few random seasons for AZ, both programs have been mediocre to bad for the last 20+ years.

    Stanford is 119-115-2 over the last 20 years with 12 losing seasons.

    Arizona is 122-117 over the last 20 years with 9 losing seasons.

    Utah is 163-79 over the last 20 years with 3 losing seasons.

    If byu is going to give 2-for-1s to our conference rivals whose program's are no better than Utah's, it doesn't make sense for Utah to continue scheduling byu if it is on equal terms. Eventually, byu will have to pony up and give Utah 2-for-1 or 3-for-2 or the Utah admin will have no choice but to stop scheduling byu.

    IMO, it's similar to byu giving MTSU a home-and-home but then asking USU to play twice in Provo and only once in Logan. USU is equal to or greater than MTSU and should expect to be treated as such. Utah, as a program, is equal to or greater than several programs in the Pac-12 and should expect to be treated as such.

    Depending on which ranking you use, yes, you can find several teams in the top 10 for SOS. However . . . .

    If Utah was New Mexico and Cal was UCLA, then I might worry.
    (15 days ago, 8 stars)

    Yeah, minor offenses like this usually end with a quick booking at the jail and a near immediate release without bail which is why a cop won't take someone to jail for traffic violations unless they are being an #@%hole or refuse to sign the ticket.
    (16 days ago, 0 stars)

    Oh, the officer could have taken her to jail. An officer can take you to jail for a violation as minor as a speeding ticket but they have the discretion to cite and release.

    If Larry is approached by Cal, I would imagine he will use the Bears as leverage for a raise. LK isn't leaving Utah for Cal.

    (18 days ago, 5 stars)

    Your story is correct, although not necessarily the specific example. An offense has an unfair advantage if they are able to spread a defense out the full length of the court, especially in the pre-shotclock era.
    (18 days ago, 0 stars)

    Fair enough, but my original comment was in relation to this specific case. And in this specific case it is extremely far-fetched to believe the police started it; especially if you are saying they started it by ordering the crowd to disperse.

    Read the news reports. He has been cleared for NON-CONTACT. Until he is cleared for FULL CONTACT, his return means very little, hence the cautious optimism.

    Hardly. You are saying that Utah is currently better than Colorado based on comparative scores. Using Utah/UCLA head to head doesn't do anything to prove that Utah is currently better than Colorado. Maybe after the 2nd matchup we will be able . . . .

    While I agree that Larry seems to be a great coach, there is no reason to extend him or give him a raise at this point.

    No, you give him a bump in pay when another team comes calling or near the end of his current deal after demonstrating he is a successful coach. Didn't Boylen get a raise and extension after one good year eventhough nobody was after him?
