    Assuming A-Rod is the OC, take the following into consideration before passing judgement.

    by UteThunder
    2015-01-05 21:23:14

    A-Rod does have experience as an OC.

    A-Rod will give this team a bit of continuity at OC as opposed to the option of bringing in someone from another team.

    A-Rod was actually a pretty good OC in comparison to what we have had since he was demoted. In fact, I would say his offense was the most productive we've had since Ludwig.

    A-Rod is much more experienced as a coach this go around, and he has worked under Chow, BJ, Erickson, and Christensen. Hopefully he's learned a thing or two since 2010, even if what he has learned is what NOT to do.

    This might not be a homerun hire/promotion, but it isn't a bad one either.

    Where have all of the insiders gone? Why haven't we gotten the real story of what is going on with Whit?

    It seems like we use to get inside info all the time on this board, sometimes even with stuff going on with BYU, but not with this Whit/Hill situation. What gives?

    A few people have hinted at knowing the truth, but they don't share any of what they imply to know. All we've been left with is speculation.

    Come on insiders, shed some light on what is "really" going on.

    What is everyone basing this opinion on that Roderick's position group gets worse or is the most underperforming on the team?

    by UteThunder
    2015-01-02 16:19:57

    A-Rod coached the QBs this year, and while their play wasn't prolific, it was certainly better than it was the year before.

    QB stats

    2013 - Comp% 53.2 - Yds 2835 - TD 22 - INT 21 - QBR 121.9

    2014 - Comp% 60.6 - Yds 2570 - TD 20 - INT 8 - QBR 130.9

    Update on Scott Mitchell on The Biggest Loser

    by UteThunder
    2015-01-02 11:35:05

    Sadly, Scott was eliminated a few episodes ago.

    However, this season, when a contestant is eliminated from the show they aren't actually eliminated. They are sent to "Comeback Canyon" where they compete against another previously eliminated contestant for one week; highest percentage of weight lost stays and takes on the next eliminated contestant. At the end of the season, the survivor of Comeback Canyon will be back on the show for the finale and a chance to win the whole thing.

    Scott has been at this "Comeback Canyon" for the last 3 episodes and won again last night by losing 9 lbs in one week.

    So far, Scott has lost 124 lbs.

    Starting weight: 366 lbs.
    Current Weight: 242 lbs.

    A-Rod for OC

    by UteThunder
    2014-12-28 12:03:04

    I would like to see A-Rod get the OC position and here is why.

    - It's one option that gives the team some form of continuity on offense.

    - He has previous OC experience with Utah.

    - He has worked under Ludwig, Chow, BJ, Erickson, and Christensen as well as worked with Schramm.

    - Despite his intentions to go elsewhere, something has kept him with Utah . . . even after being demoted. He is unlikely to leave after just one year.

    And here is a quick look at the offense he ran:

    2009
    AFA 267 yds, 23 pts
    Wyo 363 yds, 22 pts
    UNM 557 yds, 45 pts
    TCU 284 yds, 28 pts
    SDSU 391 yds, 38 pts
    BYU 298 yds, 23 pts
    Cal 389 yds, 37 pts

    2010
    Pitt 405 yds, 27 pts
    UNLV 338 yds, 38 pts
    UNM 428 yds, 56 pts
    SJSU 427 yds, 56 pts
    ISU 593 yds, 68 pts
    Wyo 431 yds, 30 pts
    CSU 648 yds, 59 pts
    AFA 327 yds, 28 pts
    TCU 199 yds, 7 pts
    UND 265 yds, 3 pts
    SDSU 500 yds, 38 pts
    BYU 296 yds, 17 pts
    BSU 200 yds, 3 pts

    Couple of quick notes/reminders:
    This doesn't include the first half of '09 when Schramm was in the booth.
    True Freshman, Jordan Wynn, took over in the second half of that Wyoming game.
    Wynn suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder against Iowa State and was hampered by that the rest of the year.
    Those were some damn good TCU teams.
    How many wide open, sure TDs, were dropped in the first half of that BSU game?

    So, with BYU being an independent, I was curious as to what type of punishments their players would be subject to for the brawl from the NCAA.

    by UteThunder
    2014-12-23 13:16:36

    According to the NCAA rule book, all players involved in the fight with remaining eligibility will be suspended for the first half of their first game next year.

    However, there is some grey area with the rule and we all know how BYU likes to use loopholes to get around the rules.

    The grey area is this: the NCAA rule for fighting only specifies that fighting is not allowed before a game, during a game, and during halftime of a game. There is no mention of fighting immediately following a game.

    It will be interesting to see how the NCAA, AAC, Memphis, and BYU handle this situation.

    I have a hard time believing this is true, but it might explain the over the top celebration by BYU yesterday.

    by UteThunder
    2014-11-30 14:40:24

    Over this holiday weekend I had a discussion with an individual claiming to be well connected to the BYU athletic department. I'm putting this under rumors because I don't know this person very well and I am having a hard time believing his story.

    He claims Bronco's recent contract extension was nothing more than an insurance policy for recruiting because this is his last season. BYU didn't want a lame duck HC hurting recruiting, plus the season long distraction of who will be his replacement. He will wait until after NLI signing day 2015 to quit. The other half of this story is that Robert Anae is expected to be named as their next HC.

    Bronco could have been coaching his final regular season game which I guess could explain the over the top celebration for beating a 5 win Cal team.

    Like I said at the top, I have a hard time believing this, however, it does seem plausible.

    Anyway, just thought I would share.

    With 7 wins, Kyle has obviously saved his job . . . . for now. If he can't figure out how to field an effective offense he will be right back on the hot seat next year, even with 7 wins.

    I'm not sure if anyone has been following Scott Mitchell on the Biggest Loser. I thought I would give an update for anyone interested in how he is doing, but not interested in actually watching the show.

    He is still on the show and doing well.

    I believe they just finished week 6; after a starting weight of 366 lbs, Scott lost 7 lbs this past week and is down to 295 lbs for a total weight loss of 71 lbs so far. By the way, He is on the Red Team(woot woot!)

    So USC stole 6 points from Arizona last night by 'icing' their kicker twice?

    by UteThunder
    2014-10-12 10:14:10

    I didn't stay up to watch the second half, but right before half, Arizona kicked a FG and made it, however, USC had called timeout. After the timeout the 2nd attempt was blocked.

    Now I hear USC pulled the same thing at the end of the game and the kicker missed the game winning 2nd attempt?

    Crazy.

    Remember when people were questioning why Travis Wilson wasn't a team captain again? I'm pretty sure the coaches worried the current circumstances could come to fruition and didn't want the awkwardness of benching a team captain.

    Good foresight on their part, although, if KT is really the better option it would have been even better if the foresight had included picking the right guy to start from day 1.

    Probably won't happen, but BYU could be facing a 5 game losing streak.

    by UteThunder
    2014-10-05 18:53:41

    After Friday night's loss to the Aggies, their next 4 opponents could be set-up to beat BYU.

    Thur. 10/9: @ UCF - The Knights played on Thursday, BYU played on Friday and it's a long road trip.

    Sat. 10/18: Nevada - The Wolfpack won't have the advantage of extra prep time, but they are 3-2 with the two losses coming on the road against undefeated Arizona(35-28) and at home to 4-2 Boise State(51-46).

    Fri. 10/24: @ BSU - The Broncos will play Fresno on the preceding Friday, BYU will play on Saturday; and the game will be on the blue turf.

    Sat. 11/1: @ MTSU - The Blue Raiders will be coming off of a bye and BYU has to once again fly across the country.


    All of these games are winnable, but there are circumstances which will give 3 of these teams an advantage over BYU. Throw in the injuries they suffered Saturday night and BYU could realistically lose all 4 of these games resulting in a 5 game losing streak.

    My prediction is 2-2 with losses against UCF and BSU.

    I have been one of Kyle Whittingham's most ardent supporters going all the way back to his struggles in 2005. I just can't do it anymore. I won't do it anymore.

    by UteThunder
    2014-09-28 11:49:56

    Last night's loss was the last straw. I've always been able to explain away any loss as being understandable due to some set of circumstances beyond Whittingham's control.

    But not this loss. This loss can't be justified or rationalized or explained away due to circumstances beyond Whittingham's control. If anything, this loss sheds new light on the previous losses I have defended.

    Whit is a great man, but he is not the great coach I thought he was.

    He is an above average G5 coach; a below average P5 coach.

    I want a new coach.

    Michigan might be down, but I don't think they are nearly as down as many would have us believe.

    by UteThunder
    2014-09-21 12:05:58

    Looking at their schedule, I don't think it is a stretch to say Michigan will make a bowl game.

    They're certainly capable of picking up wins in all of the following games:

    vs. Minnesota
    @ Rutgers
    vs. Penn State
    vs. Indiana
    @ Northwestern
    vs. Maryland


    The only games I would say are likely losses would be @ Michigan State and @ Ohio State. However, those are rivalry games with the whole "anything can happen" angle, and they do get a bye week to prepare for the Spartans.

    Unless the team quits on Hoke, or they face catastrophic injuries, I think Michigan finishes the regular season anywhere between 6-6 and 9-3. This was a good win and a better win than the 2008 2 point victory over what turned out to be a 3-9 Michigan team.

    On the topic of Utah State saying they will only play Utah if it is on equal terms:

    by UteThunder
    2014-09-14 14:11:34

    It's fine if Hill wants to tell the Aggies no, but not if he is going to turn around and schedule home-and-homes with San Jose State & Northern Illinois.

    We should only be looking elsewhere from the Aggies for scheduling under a few scenarios:

    1) We get a 2-for-1 or a 1-and-done in our favor from another G5 team.
    2) We get a P5 team on the schedule.
    3) We get a G5 team from Texas or Florida or maybe even Hawaii on the schedule.

    Northern Illinois and San Jose State offer nothing to make them more attractive than playing Utah State. Not even the trip to California because we already play 1 or 2 games per year in California.

    Since it's our bye week, and we would be playing BYU today if not for the 2 year break, here are some fun rivalry numbers. Feel free to share them with your local BYU fan when they try to say Utah has only had 2 or 3 good seasons.

    by UteThunder
    2014-09-13 09:31:28

    - Over the last 12 years, Utah has beaten BYU as many times as Utah has beaten Utah State: 9-3 against the Cougars; 9-1 against the Aggies. Nice company to be in BYU.

    - Over the last 3 years, Utah has posted a better winning percentage than BYU against P5 teams: Utah 11-18(.379); BYU 6-10(.375). But they would compete better than Utah if they were in the Pac-12 . . .

    - During the BCS era, Utah posted a better winning percentage than BYU against P5 teams: Utah 32-30(.516); BYU 23-31(.426). Before joining the Pac-12, Utah's record was 21-12(.636). But they would compete better than Utah if they were in the Pac-12 . . .

    - All-time record against teams currently in P5 conferences, Utah has posted a better winning percentage than BYU: Utah 114-175-6(.397); BYU 103-172-7(.378) - for BYU that includes all games against Utah. If we exclude the pre-Pac12 games, their record DROPS to 72-121-3(.375). But they would compete better than Utah if they were in the Pac-12 . . .

    - Over the last 20 years, Utah has posted a better winning percentage than BYU: Utah 161-80(.668); BYU 165-85(.664) - and that includes the past 3 years of Utah playing significantly more difficult competition. Taking out the last 3 years the numbers are: Utah 143-61(.701); BYU 139-72(.659). But we've only had a couple of good seasons while they have been having the same success they had in the 80s . . .

    - Over the last 20 years, Utah has had fewer seasons than BYU of .500 or worse: Utah 4; BYU 5.

    - Over the last 20 years, Utah has had a better bowl record than BYU: Utah 11-2, BYU 8-5.

    - Over the last 20 years, Utah has won just one fewer conference championship: Utah 5; BYU 6 - and both teams won the same number of MWC championships: 4.


    Looking at these numbers I find it hard to fathom how they can think their program has been so superior to ours over the last 20 years or where they get this notion that if they were in the Pac-12 instead of Utah, they would have won many more games than Utah has so far. Looking back at our last 3 schedules, there's no way they win more games than we did in any of those years. More probable, they would lose 1 or 2 more games each year than what Utah did.

    by UteThunder

    Utah obviously opened with Idaho State this year while BYU played them last year in November.

    -----------Idaho State vs BYU

    1st Downs--------22--------22
    Total Yards-----287-------578
    Passing---------128-------157
    Rushing---------159-------421
    Turnovers---------3---------3
    Possession----35:41-----24:19
    Final Score------13--------59


    ----------Idaho State vs Utah

    1st Downs--------21------27
    Total Yards-----337-----589
    Passing---------158-----351
    Rushing---------179-----238
    Turnovers---------0-------1
    Possession----34:41---25:03
    Final Score------14------56

    The two games were nearly identical and really don't reveal anything about how good or bad Utah and BYU are. The only statistic of note would be Taysom Hill's 3 INTs against the Bengals last year.

    Thoughts on Fan Fest

    by UteThunder
    2014-08-24 09:36:07

    Highlights:

    - Evening temperature was perfect! Great move Dr. Hill.
    - Throwing passes to my son all over the field, but particularly all of the TD passes in the NEZ.
    - Taking my son's picture with Kenneth Scott and Donovan Isom.
    - Having Donovan Isom throw a couple of passes to my son in the NEZ.
    - Walking through the tunnel the players come out of; my son could hardly contain himself when we came around the corner and he saw we could do that.
    - Fireworks. Great way to conclude an evening at the stadium.

    Lowlights:

    - Not a single one.

    Best Fan Fest I've ever attended.

    Just an observation - I've always thought missions were more about holding on to the impressionable young men gaining their "freedom" than they were about converting new members.

    I stopped watching America Unearthed for similar reasons. They never find hard evidence to back up their theories, and they close the show with more questions and uncertainty than what they had at the beginning of the show.

    Travel costs would be reduced, and they would have access to an automatic NY6 bowl bid. As things stand right now, they could be ranked #5(fat chance of that actually happening) and still end up in the Miami Beach Bowl.

    Interesting data, although, hardly surprising. We had a better record against a significantly more difficult schedule. Utah is awesome and BYU sucks.

    Maybe . . . I just don't think CH would include recruits if he wasn't talking about the future. I also don't think CH is the type of guy to release a statement like that only to turn around and fire/buyout that coach days later.
    (23 days ago, 0 stars)

    When he includes "RECRUITS", he is saying "foreseeable future". If CH doesn't expect KW to be the coach on signing day and beyond, then he wouldn't have included recruits in his reassuring statement.

    I think that was actually another game(Cal or Oregon in '03), and Kyle did more than shake his head - an incredulous "What the hell are you doing?!?!" was what I read on his lips as he looked Urban's direction.
    (25 days ago, 0 stars)

    Bad call or calculated gamble? I think Urban was thinking that Bama would be geared up to stop the run and he could catch them off guard for a quick score. The gamble didn't pay off, but it didn't cost him the game either.

    Agreed. And as fun as it is to win a close game, when the offense looks terrible and is the reason a game was unnecessarily close, it is very frustrating to watch. There is nothing wrong with fans wanting a better offense than what we've had recently

    That resume was a photo copy of his bio from a game program or media guide. If Bronco submitted that himself, then we have all severely underestimated just how weird he is.
    (27 days ago, 3 stars)

    I agree. His Go Hard, Go Fast is a joke, but the offense he ran from 2005-10 was pretty damn good and I thought we should have hired Anae a couple of years ago. Making the players line up in a 3 point stance to take the field will be a deal breaker.

    He may have actually expressed interest via phone or through a 3rd party, but the resume that was submitted on his behalf has to have been a joke.

    Averaging 2 wins/yr for a decade is an "average" team? Granted, the WAC was a mediocre league at best, but 11-2 and the two losses were on the road by a combined 4 pts to BYU and Wisconsin. Don't underestimate the job GA did at USU.
    (28 days ago, 0 stars)

    Exactly. The normal reaction(even in a football game) when you realize you are stepping on someone's ankle/leg/arm/hand is to quickly step off of it. He intentionally put all of his weight on the foot that was on his ankle and lingered.
    (28 days ago, 2 stars)

    I'm not saying I buy any of this or that I would prefer GA over KW, but GA taking USU from averaging 2 wins/yr for a decade to 11-2 definitely qualifies as something of note.
