    On the topic of Utah being lucky to get into the Pac-12

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-20 20:21:02

    Obviously Utah was lucky to get in, but I don't think it was in this dumb luck, Utah just happened to be sitting on the right park bench to fall in to the Pac-12 when Texas stayed home.

    I have never believed, and I never will believe, that Utah wasn't part of plan 'A' all along. That doesn't mean Utah was target #1, or even target #2 or #3 etc., just that Utah was part of the plan all along.

    Think about it: Which group of teams would deliver the most markets to the Pac-12?

    a) 2 Texas schools, 2 Oklahoma schools, 1 Colorado school, and 1 Utah school?

    or

    b) 3 Texas schools, 2 Oklahoma schools, and 1 Colorado school?


    Obviously it is the first choice.

    I have no doubt Utah was taken off the table for awhile because Texas and Oklahoma would be so much more valuable that it would make more sense to take them even with the third TX school over not getting them at all and having to "settle" for Utah & Colorado only, but that doesn't mean Utah wasn't part of the original plan from the get go.

    I believe the Pac-10's targets were, in order:

    1) Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Oklahoma State, and another Texas team.

    2) Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Oklahoma State & Two more Texas schools or One more Texas school and Kansas.

    3) Colorado and Utah.

    Interesting quotes from former BYU player.

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-18 20:37:34

    Former BYU player Tui Crichton after transferring to Weber State.

    “There were some things that were going on with the team -- a lot of guys getting in trouble, my name came up -- and he(Bronco) just didn’t want to work with me anymore, so he just sent one of his coaches to give me the hatchet.”


    With their new policy of not addressing Honor Code issues unless they become public by means beyond their control, I have little doubt that a great deal of issues have been swept under the rug these past few months and many more than usual will be swept under the rug in the future.


    I feel like players here are more sure of themselves, as opposed to BYU. People are more in their shells, I guess you could say. Not everything’s out and open and honest as much it is over here,” Crichton explained. “I went to BYU for three years, and coming from there to here is just day and night. I just feel like people here are more real.


    Nothing surprising there, but it does blow a hole in the "our players are special because of our 'higher standards' compared to other programs" B.S. they spew. Most of them don't even live their standards, they just pretend to.

    Can someone explain to me what is up with Oregon State & Colorado scheduling?

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-14 20:42:13

    Colorado has a one-off at Michigan in 2016.

    Oregon State has a one-off at Michigan in 2015 and just scheduled another one-off at Ohio State in 2018.

    I understand it when someone like UNLV or BYU(snicker) signs up for these one-offs against elite programs, but why are a couple of Pac-12 teams signing up for these deals?

    Cal just scheduled North Carolina & TCU. I'm slowly coming around to the idea of never playing BYU again, or only playing them a couple times a decade.

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-13 15:12:36

    Looking at our future schedules and comparing to the future schedules of our Pac-12 friends leaves me wondering if it is time to stop scheduling BYU.

    Just look at the P5 teams the rest of the Pac-12 is scheduling:

    UA - Mississippi State
    ASU - Notre Dame, aTm, TX Tech, Michigan State, LSU
    Cal - Northwestern, Texas, North Carolina, TCU
    CU - Michigan, Nebraska, Minnesota
    OU - Michigan State, Virginia, Nebraska, aTm, Ohio State
    OSU - Michigan, Minnesota
    Stan - Notre Dame, Northwestern, Virginia
    UCLA - Virginia, Texas, aTm, Oklahoma, Rutgers, LSU, Michigan
    USC - Boston College, Notre Dame, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee
    UW - Illinois, Rutgers, Wisconsin
    WSU - Rutgers, Wisconsin

    Other than Michigan this year and next, Utah has ZERO non-conference games against P5 teams. And our schedules are full through 2018 and we only need one more game in 2019(probably going to be BYU).

    If playing BYU every year means not playing P5 non-conference opponents, I'm really starting to lean towards not playing BYU. Fresno, San Jose, and Northern Illinois are nice G5 opponents, but I would rather see Wisconsin, Michigan State, Virginia, aTm, Mississippi State, etc.

    Interesting angle I hadn't considered regarding P5 autonomy/stipends and BYU.

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-07 16:09:32

    The P5 conferences will be setting their own standards for stipends and what-not, and it will be up to the rest of the conferences to follow suit or set their own lesser standards regarding stipends and what-not.

    For football, BYU can follow the P5 standards if they can afford to do so because they aren't part of any conference.

    But what about all of their other sports and the WCC?

    Will the WCC try to keep up with the P5 standards?

    Will the WCC even try to pay stipends of any amount?

    If they don't, how badly will this effect BYU's ability to recruit & compete in all of the other sports?

    I have a hard time believing the WCC would allow BYU to pay all of their other athletes just because they can pay their football players, while the rest of the conference would have to compete at a distinct disadvantage relative to BYU.

    Another team of interest checks in on the USA Today College Football Pre-Season Rankings Countdown - #34 BYU

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-07 09:44:17

    They aren't good enough to be ranked this high in any poll, but their schedule is weak enough that they will probably win just enough games to justify this ranking.

    For this reason, I would actually like to see BYU get into the BigXII: Just so they can see what it is like to play a real schedule week in and week out every year.

    They would get pasted by Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, TCU, Texas Tech, Baylor, & West Virginia almost every year. And they would be splitting games with Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Cincinnati(or whoever else the 12th team would be)most years.

    Team #14 in my countdown to the start of Fall Camp.

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-03 12:37:30

    In case you missed it, I am predicting every Pac-12 team's game by game results(plus Utah State & BYU) working my way from worst record to best record on our way to the start of Fall Camp.

    Previous Teams:

    - Colorado 4-8(1-8)
    - Oregon State 5-7(2-7)
    - California 5-7(2-7)
    - Arizona 6-6(3-6)
    - Washington 7-6(3-6)
    - BYU 7-5
    - Washington State 7-5(4-5)
    - USC 7-5(4-5)
    - Utah State 8-5(5-3)
    - Arizona State 9-3(6-3)
    - Utah 9-3(6-3)
    - Oregon 9-3(7-2)
    - Stanford 10-2(7-2)

    Today's team, UCLA

    Record: 11-1(9-0)

    UCLA is a strange case. Sometimes I feel like they are poised for greatness this year, but other times I think they are going to fall flat on their face this year and could start 2-2 or 1-3. For these predictions I decided to go with the more positive scenario.

    The loss to Texas: Maybe I am overestimating the impact Strong is going to have with the Longhorns, but I see that as a likely loss for the Bruins. It's on the road and Texas has athletes. Plus, I think the Bruins just might come into that game feeling a little over confident.

    After the sobering loss, UCLA will take care of business in the Pac-12. A win in the Pac-12 title game will all but guarantee the Bruins a spot in the playoff as they will have one of the strongest 'PERCEIVED' strengths of schedule in the country - having played a total of 12 P5 opponents, half of which will probably finish the season ranked.

    Well, there you have it. Fall camp starts tomorrow.

    Go Utes!

    Once again Stanford will be a force in the Pac-12, but a couple of road losses will keep them out of the playoff. A North Division title with a great shot at the Rose Bowl will be their consolation prize. If they win, they will be guaranteed a spot in the Rose Bowl(because a 2 loss team isn't making the playoff). And if they lose, they will still probably go to the Rose because that means the Pac-12 champion is likely in the playoff.

    Oregon has lost to Stanford 3 of the last 5 meetings, and Michigan State seems to play a very similar style to the Cardinal. The early loss to Michigan State will take the wind out of the Duck's national championship sails and they will coast to a 9-3 record with the only other losses coming against UCLA & Stanford.

    I have no doubt that over the last 20 years you have been attending games at UW that you have sat in the rain many times. But if the average number of times it rains during a Washington game during those twenty years is more than 1 or 2 times per season, I will eat my shoe. It does not rain during "most" of UW's & WSU's games. And many of the times it does rain, it's likely a sprinkle or a quick shower that has virtually no effect on the game.

    Same goes for the Arizona schools regarding 100 degree temperatures. They clearly play in some heat, but it isn't 100+ degrees for "most" of their games. Between the two of them there were only 2 games that MIGHT have been played in 100+ heat, and 3 more that MIGHT have been played in 90+ heat. I say MIGHT because we don't know what the temp. at kickoff was, only the high for the day. And I seriously doubt those schools make a habit of kicking off in the high heat of the day.

    PDX, I don't know if this is what you had in mind when you asked for historical evidence that it is possible Utah could jump from 5-7 to 9-3 this year, but here you go.

    by UteThunder
    2014-07-31 16:20:40

    Every team in this conference has made a dramatic turn around very similar to what Utah would be doing by improving from 5-7 to 9-3. I've listed the turn arounds that equal a 3+ win improvement(except for one). And all of these are from the last 14 years. If these teams can do it, why can't Utah? How are these teams any different than Utah? And if your answer is that they have been in the conference longer so were better to begin with, I don't buy it. Many of these teams won fewer than the 5 games Utah has won the last two years so Utah has been every bit as good as these other teams before they made their huge jump in the win column.

    Arizona - 4-8 in 2011 to 8-5 in 2012 = +4 wins

    Looks like you were right Tacoma. I know 9-3 is extremely optimistic, but I just look at last year and can't help but think Utah is on the verge of breaking through. Utah was so close to posting this exact record last year, and we had all sorts of issues at QB. With healthy/better QB play, and hopefully Pac-12 depth, we pull those close games out this year.

    Buckle up Ute fans, it's going to be an awesome season!

    ASU only returns 3 starters on defense, but they return 7 starters on offense including their QB. I'm looking for ASU to win a lot of shootouts. The 3 picks that stand out the most to me are the wins over Stanford and Notre Dame and the loss to Utah.

    Stanford: ASU gets a bye week to prepare for a team that beat them twice last year; once at home and once on the road. The combination of the extra week and revenge will fuel the Sun Devils to an upset win over the Cardinal.

    Utah: The win was right there for the taking last year, but Utah couldn't seal the deal. That will change this year partly due to ASU looking past Utah just a bit towards Notre Dame.

    Notre Dame: I've not been impressed with Notre Dame the last few years. Even when they made it to the BCS title game, they seemed like a team that relied on a ton of luck to get there. After the 37-34 loss to the Irish in Texas last year, the Sun Devils will once again have revenge on their minds.

    It's hilarious that BYU claims to be a "special" place where their players live a higher standard. Or should I say, PRETEND to live a higher standard?

    Sorry BYU, just like it was in the 80s & 90s, you have a lot of players that participate in the same "sinful" behaviors that go on at every university in the country. #stop pretending

    Team #9 in my countdown to the start of Fall Camp.

    2014-07-29 10:50:38

    In case you missed it, I am predicting every Pac-12 team's game by game results(plus Utah State & BYU) working my way from worst record to best record on our way to the start of Fall Camp.

    Previous Teams:

    - Colorado 4-8(1-8)
    - Oregon State 5-7(2-7)
    - California 5-7(2-7)
    - Arizona 6-6(3-6)
    - Washington 7-6(3-6)
    - BYU 7-5
    - Washington State 7-5(4-5)
    - Utah State 8-5(5-3)

    Today's team, USC

    Record: 7-5(5-4)

    I made a bit of a mistake when making my predictions and listed USC with an 8-4 record even though I had them losing 5, so I apologize for getting a bit out of order.

    Moving on.

    I'm not convinced Sarkisian is going to be the homerun hire USC thinks he is. At Washington he went 7-6 three years in a row before going 8-4 in his final year. That tells me either it is going to take him some time to get things going in L.A. or I am right that he is a good but not great coach. Either way, there will be some first year struggles.

    In the WTF game of the year in the Pac-12, Mike Riley takes advantage of some "new coach's system" mistakes to get a shocking win in the coliseum. Utah & WSU are on the rise and will take advantage of playing at home against a new coach. Stanford & UCLA should need no explanation; they are the cream of the crop right now and will be playing at home.

    Utah State only returns 7 starters and while they will get Chuckie back from his season ending knee injury, it is doubtful he will be the same dual threat QB he was before. The schedule is soft enough that the last few Aggie teams would likely go 11-1 or 12-0, but the lack of experience and Chuckie's new found limitations will lead to some frustrating losses.


    Disclaimer:

    - Placing Utah State where I did in this countdown is in no way an endorsement that they would finish that well in the Pac-12. Similar to BYU, I believe the Aggies would be in a fight to finish 4-8.

    My positive experience with Brian Blechen

    by UteThunder
    2014-07-27 22:08:16

    The following quote comes from this post about the 2010 Utah vs. BYU game.

    We [My son and I] went down onto the field to join the celebration. We happened upon Brian Blechen who was kind enough to give my son one of his arm bands and take a picture with him, both of them flashing the 'U'.


    I like Brian Blechen. I am glad he is a member of the University of Utah football team. I will cheer for him during this season and look back on the picture of him with my son with fond memories of his time as a Ute and the time he made my son's first Utah/BYU game even more memorable than it already had been.

    Go Utes!

    Leach has the Cougars moving in the right direction and coming off a disappointing bowl loss, they will take another step forward this year by posting their first winning season since 2003. Leach's offense will lead to the 7 wins, but the Cougar's lack of defense will lead to the 5 losses.

    Stepping out of conference for a day, I have BYU going just 7-5 this year. I know, given their softer than kittens in a cotton candy factory schedule, 7 wins seems low. But, this is how I see it. Travel takes a toll on teams, and BYU is no exception. Road travel to Connecticut, Texas, UCF, MTSU, Cal & Boise will make finding success on the football field just a bit tougher. Also, for as weak as their schedule is on paper, many of their opponents return a great deal of starters from last year and should be improved over what they were last year. Teams I expect to be most improved on their schedule are Houston, UCF, & California.

    A couple of disclaimers on these picks:

    - If the rumored suspensions and looming NCAA sanctions are of any significance, I could see BYU taking a sharp nose dive with additional losses @ UCONN, vs. Virginia, & vs. USU.

    - Putting BYU at 7-5 is by no means an endorsement that BYU would finish ahead of Colorado, Oregon State, California, Arizona, & Washington. If BYU were to play in the Pac-12 this year, they would be in a fight to finish ahead of Colorado and would most likely finish with the same 4-8 record.

    In a weird way, Chris Petersen selected both the best time and the worst time to jump to the big leagues. It's the best time because Washington's schedule almost guarantees a winning record in year 1 with 4 VERY winnable non-conference games(3 of which are at home), plus, they have Cal & Colorado on the schedule this year. It's the worst time because the Pac-12 is quite possibly the strongest it has ever been. After a quick 5-1 start against the type of schedule He is use to facing, the harsh reality of facing great coaches with top talent week-in and week-out will set in for Petersen as the Huskies limp to the finish winning just 2 of their final 7 before heading to a bowl game. Not a great first year for Petersen, but much better than the 2-10 record his Boise State predecessor Dan Hawkins posted in year one at Colorado.

    Arizona has lost possibly the best RB in the country last year as well as their starting QB. They are bound to have some struggles on offense. If not for such a soft non-conference schedule, the Wildcats would take an even bigger step backwards, but they will make it to bowl eligibility with 3 conference home wins plus the 3 cupcakes early on.

    Rebuttal to SeaTac regarding Wilson's 6 INTs against UCLA

    by UteThunder
    2014-07-23 21:36:04

    SeaTac and I differ on the cause/blame for Wilson's interceptions.

    I say they were the result of tipped passes, quarterback pressure, and a WR running the wrong route.

    SeaTac says they were the result of bad throws by Wilson.

    I tried to let the video do the talking, but he still can't see what I see. So I figured I would let the man who knows more about football than both of us combined do the talking.

    Whittingham's comments in the post game before reviewing film.

    I know a few of those interceptions were fluke circumstances — balls being tipped, off receivers' hands — so it wasn't all on Travis.


    Whittingham's comments the following week after reviewing the film.

    Very few were on Travis. He got hit a couple times just as the ball was coming out, which changed the direction of the football, and the flight. A couple of them were right off receivers' hands. One was a great play by the defense, a play that the ball just kind of bobbled around and (the defender) ended up making the play at the end before it hit the ground. A broken route structure - one time you would have a slant and go dialed up, but didn't get the whole signal on the outside, so we just ran the slant aspect of it and put the ball up. That was the one the safety intercepted in the half.

    If its bad decisions, bad throws, it's one thing. You still say, 'There were six interceptions,' which is a huge negative, but it was not all on Travis, in fact, very few were on Travis. One or two.


    I love ya, SeaTac, but I think you are dead wrong about Travis. He is going to do great things for Utah, I'm certain of it.

    Cal returns a ton of starters and contributors which will lead to a huge improvement over last year's 1-11 record, with the lone victory coming against Portland State. The problem is many of those who are returning were Freshman last year. In a strange way, experience will lead to their improvement, but youth will keep them from making a bowl game. Cal is still a year or two away from returning to the top half of the Pac-12, but a 4 win improvement is a huge step in the right direction.

    And I will say this, if the officer's account is true, it looks like Missouri law clears him.

    What if the officer's account of the shooting is true?

    I'm sure they still see us as that cute little MWC team that barely beat their 3-9 2008 team. They will be sorely mistaken.

    Is that even being discussed as an option? How would any G5 make a bowl game?

    Let me guess, he plays Center. ;)

    I voted for "One P5 and Two G5s" - It gives us the option to play USU and/or BYU as we see fit, while also scheduling other interesting G5s and rotating a different P5 into the schedule every couple of years.
    (8 days ago, 2 stars)

    Right, but it is looking more and more like we won't be playing any P5 teams in years when we play BYU.
    (8 days ago, 0 stars)

    Your OP is a little misleading.
    (8 days ago, 4 stars)

    Cal just scheduled North Carolina & TCU. I'm slowly coming around to the idea of never playing BYU again, or only playing them a couple times a decade.

    Meh, Marriota was ranked #1 in all 3 categories. I don't think adjusting for his injury will impact Wilson's ranking.

    I don't claim to be a smart man, but I believe 3 rushing TDs over 6 games averages out to .5 rushing TDs per game and not the 1 rushing TD per game you have listed for QB #2. Good stuff otherwise.

    And you would be wrong. Travis Wilson is the worst QB in Pac-12 history. No excuses. Sincerely, SeaTac

    Not true, and not nearly as speculative as your theory below describing why Stewart's car was drifting as he came around the turn.
    (10 days ago, 3 stars)

    This is why . . .

    His intent, or lack thereof, will not be what saves him from being charged. People are charged with various degrees of manslaughter for accidental deaths all the time.

    If God is a man, then he is incapable of multitasking . . . at least that is what my wife always says about me. :D

    It was a dumb decision on Ward's part, but his death is anything but Karma. Karma would have been Stewart swerving to hit Ward but instead of hitting him, he crashes into Ward's car resulting in Stewart's own death or horrible injury.
    (11 days ago, 3 stars)

    If NASCAR and every other racing organization on the planet have any balls, they will all ban Stewart from ever racing again. And based on his history and that video, he needs to be charged with some form of manslaughter.
    (11 days ago, 2 stars)

    Are you saying Ward had it coming?

    And we should care what they think because . . . . . . ????

    I would argue that the fact Hatch was fighting for equality that would happen to benefit Utah as well as BYU was just a political bonus. Protecting an LDS institution's interests was his real objective.
