    Any of those teams would be great to schedule home-and-home, but I selected Florida.

    I talked about this in another thread a while back(last year maybe?), but why not bring it up again?

    Teams I would like to see Utah schedule:

    Florida State

    TX Tech
    OK State

    Michigan State
    Ohio State
    Penn State

    Miss. State
    South Carolina

    Let's just put this whole 'byu - were they or weren't they considered for an invite from the Pac-12?' thing to bed.

    by UteThunder
    2015-06-19 10:09:09

    A good friend of mine(a byu fan) has a brother who works in the Pac-12 administration. Not for a Pac-12 school, but for the Pac-12 Conference.

    I have verified the brother's position with the Pac-12 and he is someone who works directly with Larry Scott, was part of the decision making process, and would definitely be privy to this type of information.

    According to the brother, byu was never even considered by the Pac-12 decision makers. No presentations. No discussions. No contact with byu. At no time was byu ever brought up in Pac-12 expansion meetings.

    Utah offered everything byu had to offer, and then some, and brought none of the baggage.

    This brother also said the Pac-12 will never consider byu for future expansion.

    Minnesota schedules a 2-for-0 with New Mexico State. At what point do we see Utah start doing this?

    by UteThunder
    2015-06-16 21:04:59

    Trying to get to 7 home games every year, Utah needs to stop scheduling 2 or 3 home-and-homes every year.

    Scheduling an FCS opponent every year doesn't get Utah to 7 home games every year.

    In addition to one P5 home-and-home, Utah needs to start scheduling G5 teams on 2-for-1 or 1-for-0 terms to get to 7 home games every year.

    Surely Utah is capable of doing it if Minnesota can.

    Pluses of the 2015 schedule; not the teams on it, but rather the circumstances surrounding when the games are played.

    by UteThunder
    2015-06-14 10:03:05


    9/3: Michigan - Get Harbaugh's team in its first game and it is in SLC on a Thursday night, something Michigan has never done before.

    9/11: Utah State - Both the Utes and the Aggies open on a Thursday, so there is no preparation advantage but it will be nice for Utah to have 8 days, instead of 7, to recover from what will likely be a very physical game against the Wolverines.

    9/19: @ Fresno State - Coming off of a Friday game the Utes get an extra day to prepare for this road game and the Bulldogs will be coming off of a very tough and long road trip at Ole Miss.

    10/10: California - Utah will be coming off of a bye and the game is at home.

    10/24: @ USC - This game is sandwiched between two rivalry road games for the Trojans: @ Notre Dame and @ Cal. It's not a trap game, but if we are going to play USC on the road I think this is a nice time to do it.

    11/7: @ Washington - It's on the road, but we catch the Huskies at the tail end of a tough stretch of games for them. They go @ USC, v Oregon, @ Stanford, v Arizona before playing Utah and then they have @ ASU to look forward to the following week. Brutal, for them.

    11/14: @ Arizona - Similar circumstances to the USC road game; the Wildcats play Utah between games @ USC and @ Arizona State. On top of that, the Wildcats don't have a bye until the final week of the season which means this will be their 11th game in as many weeks. And it is in November, great time to play in Tucson.

    11/21: UCLA - SLC in late November should be a bit chillier than the Bruins are use to and they play @ USC the following week.

    Other pluses

    - Not a single team has a bye week or extra prep time from playing a Thursday/Friday game the week before playing Utah.

    - 7 home games

    Addressing the "we were x number of plays away from being 11-2 or 3-9" discussions.

    by UteThunder
    2015-05-30 08:39:33

    Utah's record under Kyle Whittingham in close games(one score):

    2005-10: 16-9(.640)

    2011-14: 13-8(.619)

    Overall: 29-17(.630)

    Best Years:
    2008 - 5-0
    2010 - 3-0
    2014 - 5-2(.714)

    Kyle has never finished a season under .500 in these type of games.

    So what does this all mean? Hell, I don't know. But I like to think it means we are more likely to end up closer to the "11-2" side of the argument than we are the "3-9" side.

    Utah Football Scheduling

    by UteThunder
    2015-05-06 20:31:33

    After seeing TheJuggernaut's post a few pages back saying he has heard that Chris Hill is looking for a big name opponent to replace BYU with in '17 & '18, I decided to take a look at any teams that might fit the bill and whether they might have openings that match up.

    For Hill to sell any cancellation or postponement of the '17-'18 BYU games to the media and the general fanbase, the new opponent has to be from a P5 conference obviously, but I believe it would have to be one of the bigger names from those conferences; similar to the way the Michigan series was announced as a "couldn't pass it up opportunity". With that in mind, I didn't bother looking at teams like Indiana or Duke.

    Here's the list of teams with openings in 2017 & 2018.

    ACC: Florida State, Miami*

    BigXII: Kansas State, Oklahoma*, TCU, TX Tech**, West Virginia

    B1G: Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin

    SEC: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia**, LSU**, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M

    *Only has an opening in '17
    **Only has an opening in '18

    Random Football Scheduling Thoughts.

    by UteThunder
    2015-05-03 14:33:42

    I have been one of those fans thinking the BYU game should continue to be played. But I actually enjoyed not having them on the schedule last year and I am looking forward to not having to play them again this year.

    Having the Aggies come back on the schedule this year has me thinking the idea of getting on a rotation between BYU and USU sounds really appealing, especially if there is any way Utah could get a 2-for-1 out of the Aggies to make the rotation work on a 5 year basis.

    If we were only going to play one of them going forward, at this point I think I would prefer to play the Aggies.

    Responding to annarborUte's request for 2008 and later recruiting numbers . . .

    by UteThunder
    2015-04-28 22:25:32

    Utah recruiting rankings - Rivals:

    2008 - #60 (prior to the Sugar Bowl season)

    2009 - #44 (signing day was post Sugar Bowl, but many of this years recruits were committed prior to the 13-0 run; still, a nice little recruiting bump)

    2010 - #32 (here is where we see the real fruits of the '08 season followed by the 10-3 '09 season; worth noting, this class signed prior to the Pac-12 invite but the rumors had already begun)

    2011 - #37 (pretty much the same spot as the year before, the Sugar Bowl luster was probably beginning to fade, however, the Pac-12 excitement likely picked up the slack and a second straight 10-3 season didn't hurt either)

    2012 - #28 (following an 8-5 inaugural season in the Pac-12 including a Sun Bowl victory, it is clear the Pac-12 is helping with recruiting)

    2013 - #44 (after going 5-7 the ranking drops a fair amount, that's weird, but I would imagine the drop would've been even greater if Utah was still in the MWC)

    2014 - #67 (back to back 5-7 seasons result in the ranking dropping even further, a total mystery; again, if Utah was still in the MWC I would expect the drop to be greater than it was)

    2015 - #41 (9-4 with a Vegas Bowl victory and the ranking climbs significantly, funny how that works)

    Looking at these rankings reveals 3 facts:

    #1 - There was a Sugar Bowl bump.

    #2 - The expected fall back to recruiting normality was staved off by the Pac-12 invite.

    #3 - Conference affiliation without on-field success will result in lackluster recruiting and vice versa.

    Bottom line - Utah will never be USC and without multiple NY6 bowls or CFP appearances within a short time frame, nobody should ever expect Utah's recruiting rankings to be in the top 25 consistently.

    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.

    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:

    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

    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.

    He is still on the show and doing well.

    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?

    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.

    This kid is exactly the type of QB Utah needs. He will already be accustomed to playing for a different OC every year. ;)

    If that is what you came away from last year feeling, all I can do is shake my head in disbelief at your unbelievably negative perceptions.

    Let's just put this whole 'byu - were they or weren't they considered for an invite from the Pac-12?' thing to bed.
    (12 days ago, 12 stars)

    Players like that are invited in for two reasons: 1) Fan relations 2) And this is the important one, he is a warm body for the real workout participants to play against in situational drills.

    True or not, you've already said too much. Which local radio show will run with this info tomorrow as though they have a "well placed source" (you) but they aren't at liberty to give any details as of yet(because they don't have any)?

    Usually I would agree with this statement, however, in terms of scheduling I think it is okay to Gopher it.

    Minnesota schedules a 2-for-0 with New Mexico State. At what point do we see Utah start doing this?

    Any ideas on who will fill that TBA slot for a home game on Dec 28th? And with conference play starting that week at Stanford & Cal, will that TBA slot even get filled?

    I can't decide if the fact that he isn't even looking when the cup is thrown is evidence that it was rehearsed or not rehearsed. He looks genuinely caught off guard in that split second before the cup gets to him.

    That is my theory, except the no confidence in A-Rod part. Look at it this way, if you will . . .

    (16 days ago, 1 stars)

    Yes, you are correct.
    (16 days ago, 2 stars)

    I would love to hear who this player was because the offense sure seemed to improve when A-Rod replaced Schramm as the man calling the shots in the booth.
    (16 days ago, 2 stars)

    How much of A-Rod being "overlooked" had to do with KW thinking he was a poor OC? How much of it was KW believing he had bigger/better candidates? And how much of it was KW's pride preventing him from admitting the mistake of demoting him in the

    Ah, I see now. I was clicking on statistics leaders at the top of the page. Regardless, I think it is silly to only use conference games. Everybody plays 9 of 11 teams which can certainly effect the rankings.
    (17 days ago, 0 stars)

    I don't know where you are getting those numbers. I used your link, and found that Travis never finished worse than 10th in pass efficiency. I just don't see where you are pulling those TW stats from.
    (17 days ago, 1 stars)

    Using your linked stats, Travis Wilson isn't rock bottom for the last 3 years as you claim.

    That team isn't in the top 5, hell, they wouldn't even be top 10.

    As nice as this is for Utah, I think it is an even greater compliment for Utah State & Fresno State. Utah's schedule is the only one on the list that doesn't include two P5 teams.

    I think for the LDS religion to have 'evolved' the way it has is more confusing than when other religions change over time and is one of the main reasons I left.

    Most(maybe all?) of the "LDS bashing" I have seen on Utefans.net is directed at the organization, not the members. And there is no problem with that whatsoever.

    No, you are just throwing out some pessimistic hyperbole. That is.....unless you actually believe Utah's offense is as bad as you claim, which statistically speaking, it isn't....so yeah, got anything else?

    We won 9 games and finished last? Well that stinks.
    (48 days ago, 1 stars)

    Pfft! Show me one year's worth of this data. I'd be shocked if Utah has averaged less than 75 yds of offense per quarter for an entire season even one time in the last 40 years.

    Whoa whoa whoa!!
    (49 days ago, 5 stars)

    The only way an Indy BYU gets in with a 10-2 record is if the 2 losses are against CFP teams and the runners-up from the P5s all have 3+ losses. In other words, it ain't happening.

    The same thing can be said for New Mexico . . . UNLV . . . Wyoming . . . San Diego State . . . How can they say this like BYU helped Utah & TCU get to the BCS?
