    Hansen moving to Safety final?

    by UteThunder
    2016-04-04 15:58:58

    Heard a snippet of an interview with Kyle today and when talking about the talent and depth at Safety, he mentioned something to the effect of "and we don't even have Chase back yet". The way he said it made it sound like the decision has been made and Chase is no longer a potential QB.

    The move wouldn't surprise anyone, but has anyone heard anything definitive on this?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't one of the reasons Poeltl came back that his mom was more interested in him earning his degree than having him play in the NBA? I swear I heard that at the beginning of this season, maybe during the BYU game?

    Anyone else hear that? Might explain why he hasn't declared yet.

    Scheduling FBS one-and-dones: Is Utah trying to do this, and should Utah be trying to do this?

    by UteThunder
    2016-03-30 12:25:45

    Texas A&M, Arizona State, and Oregon have all signed Fresno State up for a one-and-done in the next few years, a team we just played home-and-home.

    Illinois is bringing in Akron, UTSA, Charlotte, and Wyoming for one-and-dones.

    Why are we only bringing in FCS teams for one and dones? Is it simply money? What FBS teams should we, and could we, get to come in for one-and-dones?

    I'm kind of hoping the audit finds Utah has been a bit irresponsible in scheduling and makes recommendations to schedule more local schools when possible.

    by UteThunder
    2016-02-24 12:03:55

    In football . . .

    Utah agrees to schedule Utah State every year, preferably on a 2-for-1 or 3-for-2 basis,(We're not getting one-and-dones from the Aggies) but we will take home-and-home if that is our only option.

    Utah agrees that in any year they schedule an FCS program they will alternate between playing Weber State and SUU, however, they are not obligated to play an FCS team every year.

    Utah uses the remaining spot(or spots in years Utah doesn't play an FCS team) to schedule a team(s) from a P5 conference and/or G5 teams in recruiting hotbeds such as Hawaii, California, Texas, etc.

    In Basketball . . .

    Utah agrees to schedule Utah State every year(2-for-1 or 3-for-2). Weber State, SUU, and UVU are scheduled on a rotating basis, two at a time in 2 year intervals(always at JMHC). For example it would start with WSU & SUU year 1, SUU & UVU year 2, UVU & WSU year 3, WSU & SUU year 4, etc.

    After listening to the Dan McCay 1280 interview and scrolling through his twitter feed, it is disgustingly obvious the intent of the audit is meant to hurt Utah athletics.

    by UteThunder
    2016-02-23 18:47:23

    Over and over, the phrase "academics come before athletics" and variations of it have been used to justify the audit of the U athletic department. Where is he/they getting the impression that athletics are being put before academics at Utah? Because we cancelled a basketball game? Bought out a football game? Stopped scheduling basketball games with Weber and USU? Took a two year break from playing BYU in football?

    What the hell does any of that have to do with putting athletics ahead of academics or vice versa?

    This whole thing is a joke and it is just sickening to know that elected officials are willing to act like this. Here's hoping each of these idiots is voted out of office in the next election.

    Question regarding this audit and the potential legislative punishment that could be meted out: To what extent will the Pac-12 have our back and what can they do to help us?

    by UteThunder
    2016-02-20 20:42:38

    I have little doubt that at the end of this audit our BYU-fan legislators intend to redistribute our Pac-12 payouts to the other in state institutions in an effort to hinder our athletic success relative to their favorite team. Is their anything the Pac-12 can do to prevent this or counteract this?

    The only thing I can think of is for the Pac-12 to blackball BYU in all sports. Is there anything else that can be done to prevent this? Will the Pac-12 do anything to help Utah in this situation?

    Is it possible Chris Hill is just using BYU to play the Utah Legislature?

    by UteThunder
    2016-01-09 15:10:36

    Hill knows there are lawmakers in this state who will threaten legislative action forcing us to play BYU. He also knows they'd have to settle for threatening to withhold funds from the University of Utah.

    With this knowledge, does Hill cancel the two football games and now a basketball game knowing he can use the prospect of scheduling BYU to get more money from those legislators?

    Sort of a "You want us to play BYU? Here's what we want..." and after he gets what he wants and the short breaks in both sports, the games are put on future schedules.

    Morgan Scalley - at first I was a bit puzzled by the decision(maybe it's too early in his career?), but the more I think about it the more I like it; or at least the more comfortable I am with it.

    by UteThunder
    2016-01-04 19:38:14

    Quick Comparison with Sitake:

    Age promoted to DC
    Sitake - 34
    Scalley - 36

    Years Coaching Prior to DC
    Sitake - 8
    Scalley - 9

    Years Coaching Defense Prior to DC
    Sitake - 5
    Scalley - 7

    Position Played in College
    Sitake - Fullback
    Scalley - Safety

    Played in Kyle's Defense
    Sitake - No
    Scalley - Yes

    Given all of that, I would say Scalley is in a position to be at least as successful as Sitake was while running our defense, but more likely he is set up to be more successful than Sitake was.

    A-Rod is moved to WR and Passing Game Coordinator(aka Throw Game ).

    Harding is moved to OL and is Running Game Coordinator.

    The newest member of the staff is named OC and will also coach QBs.

    Your reaction?

    Pac-12 Bowl games, who to root for? Here's how I look at it . . .

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-26 15:22:25

    Having a 10 win season in a year when the Pac-12 gets 10 teams into bowl games, and then to have those teams go 10-0? It's good for the league's image(move over SEC) and makes Utah's record look all the more impressive.

    Go Pac-12!

    Star Wars review

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-20 21:08:09

    I saw it Thursday night and after letting it sink in for a few days, here are my thoughts.

    It ranks somewhere between episodes I, II, III and IV, V, VI.

    It was a lot more like the originals, but it just wasn't as good as those were. It felt like a faster paced, and not as in depth, episode IV.

    I was disappointed by a few things in the movie. I can't really say specifically what without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it yet, but there were some major let downs.

    3 out of 4 stars, I will see it again.

    Question of the off-season: What is going to be done to fix the offense?

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-20 19:11:17

    Besides having a new QB, what is going to be done to fix the offense?

    It would seem that switching OCs for the 8th straight year is out of the question.

    The next logical option would be to change the offensive scheme/philosophy but if we are going to do that we might as well look at changing OCs. The reason being, if we are going to change schemes then let's go out and find someone who is the best available option to run that offense rather than picking a scheme and hoping the guy(s) we have can learn it and run it well.

    I'm worried Kyle is in a 'damned if he does and damned if he doesn't ' situation. If he does in fact change the OC/scheme, everyone is going to be thinking "here we go again" and if he leaves it the way it is, it will mean we are stuck with the same shit-show of predictable non-productivity we had this year.

    So frustrating.

    Hopefully Kyle can pull off a miracle this off-season.

    My X-mas wishes for BYU fans

    2015-12-20 11:02:56

    1. Mendenhall goes to Virginia and wins big. Not national championship big, but multiple ACC titles and NY6 games big. Also, that he goes undefeated vs Virginia Tech and BYU while he is the coach there.

    2. Sitake turns out to be a complete disaster as a head coach.

    Here's a real positive from today's game regarding next year's match-up. There is no chance the team comes into the game thinking all they need to do is show up and they will win.

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-19 21:09:20

    Had this game continued on to be the 70-3 ass whipping it was shaping up to be, I think there would have been a real danger that we come into next year's game a bit complacent. Nearly blowing a 35 point lead guarantees that won't happen. Doesn't guarantee victory, but we won't be taking them lightly next year.

    I have no doubt Sitake will be coming after some of our coaches. The only questions are: Which ones? & Will they go?

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-19 20:36:42

    The second question will come down to $$$ and titles. If they can give any of our position coaches a raise(doubtful) or a promotion(probable), I think they will go. I really hope we don't lose anyone to them, but especially no one from the defense.

    Since becoming the coach, Kyle has won every single milestone type rivalry game that has occurred.

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-19 09:06:53

    Kyle won the first rivalry game against Bronco.

    Kyle won the game featuring the two highest ranked teams to ever play in the rivalry game(2008 - #7 Utah v #14 BYU).

    Kyle won the last game the two teams played as members of the MWC.

    Kyle won the first game the two teams played after going Pac-12/Independent.

    This is the first time the two teams have ever met in a bowl game and will be Bronco's last game coaching BYU.

    Kyle has to win this milestone match-up, too.

    Let's go Utah!

    Whittingham is 7-1 in bowl games.

    2008-Present: Whittingham is 28-4 in non-conference games.

    The 4 losses?

    2009 - @ 10-3 Oregon
    2010 - @ 8-5 Notre Dame
    2010 - v 12-1 Boise State(Vegas Bowl)
    2012 - @ 11-2 Utah State

    This BYU team isn't as good as any of those teams, and this Utah team is better than the '09, '10, & '12 editions.

    Here's a thought: Is it possible that since the Pac-12 is left out of the playoff the committee will throw us a bone and give the Pac-12 an at-large bid to a NY6 game?

    by UteThunder
    2015-12-06 10:51:01

    Oregon was ranked #16 last week. #12 Baylor lost to Texas, #10 North Carolina lost to Clemson, and #4 Iowa lost to Michigan State.

    The Ducks could move up a couple of spots based on those losses. Does their SOS get enough of a boost from Stanford and USC playing in the CCG to justify bumping them up to #12 and into a NY6 game?

    Ole Miss is sitting at #13 with a 9-3 record. Why not a 9-3 Oregon at #12?

    If we're being realistic, with Bronco, BYU was going to be 4-5 or 5-4 through their first nine games and they finish off the season with 3 cupcake wins to make it to 7-5 or 8-4. Not a great year, but pretty good with that schedule.

    Without Bronco, they are likely implementing a new offense and a new defense next year. Maybe(1 in a million chance here) they catch lightning in a bottle like they did with Crowton in 2001 and rattle off 7+ wins in their first 9 games and finish the season with 10+ wins. Most likely though, they will have a record between 0-9 and 2-7 after their ninth game and will be lucky to win 2 of their final 3 cupcake games.

    For anyone who likes their fill of schadenfreude, next year has an excellent chance to be epic.

    I believe it was in the first half while one of our guys (Reyes?) was getting an offensive board. Emery grabbed at and then slapped him on the upper arm. I was surprised he didn't get a flagrant for that as he wasn't even making a play on the ball. Total frustration foul, just slapped at him.

    Remember the 1998 Holy War? Daniel Jones got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for doing a little hip shimmy after a big reception that helped set up the Kaneshiro FG.

    After the game Jones said the little hip shimmy was for his grandma and he would do it again if given the chance.

    Without that penalty, Utah might have scored a TD on the next play or at the very least, picked up more yards to make the Kaneshiro FG a much closer try and Utah wins.

    So how could anyone be upset at Jones, right? I mean, he was doing it for his freakin grandma!

    So . . . Other than a new QB, what hope do we have that the offense will be better next year?

    by UteThunder
    2015-11-28 18:56:56

    I would include continuity at the OC position for the first time since '07-'08 as a reason for hope, but the offense has actually regressed a little from last year under Hard-Rod. Total yards/game are lower, passing yards/game are down, TDs/game are down, turnovers are up, etc, etc.

    I love that we have grinded out 9 wins on the back of our defense, but when is our offense ever going to pull their own weight?

    When you take into account the time the rule was probably enacted, it makes a lot of sense.

    I believe when they say "NCAA Championship Events" they are referring to National Championship Events, not Conference Championship Events.

    Does it matter if the supposed "offenders" can see the difference between the two methods when those who take offense do so under either scenario?

    Ute2004 is saying when we stopped blitzing so much this past season, we only gave up 27 points in regulation and had a chance to win in OT as opposed to the three previous seasons with Kalani's blitz heavy defense that gave up 37 ppg to AZ.
    (34 days ago, 3 stars)

    No kidding. Rich-Rod's O has scored an average of 39 ppg against Kalani's defenses at Utah and Oregon State.
    (34 days ago, 0 stars)

    Arizona is undefeated in season openers and regular season non-conference games under Rich-Rod. BYU will be a bit better than most of those teams they have beat, but BYU will find winning that game to be very difficult, let alone curb stomping them.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't one of the reasons Poeltl came back that his mom was more interested in him earning his degree than having him play in the NBA? I swear I heard that at the beginning of this season, maybe during the BYU game?

    The only way we are going to get 7 home games every year is if we start scheduling one-and-dones with G5 teams in addition to the FCS game we play each year.

    I have always admired and respected Eastwood. One of my favorite actors.
    (36 days ago, 3 stars)

    I don't know if the coaches even wanted him, but I do know this: he is a dirty player who has trouble controlling his emotions in the heat of competition. From what I saw of him in high school, I wouldn't want him playing for Utah.

    Scheduling FBS one-and-dones: Is Utah trying to do this, and should Utah be trying to do this?
    (37 days ago, 0 stars)

    I hate it. Playing on a Sunday opening week puts your team in a situation where they have to play the next game on a short week or take their bye in week 2. Both scenarios suck.

    (37 days ago, 0 stars)

    This should surprise nobody. This is how our offense has been and will likely continue to be. Luckily part of the problem is that our defense is this good, which means our offense will be at least somewhat better against other teams.

    Speaking of TV shows people are watching, is anyone watching Hap & Leonard? I've found it to be very entertaining so far.
    (38 days ago, 3 stars)

    The slower pace of the show is part of what makes it great. I really enjoy Mike's story line as well, it's the more entertaining story line of the show in my opinion.

    This has nothing to do with BYU or the difficulty of my own life(which is just fine, by the way). It has everything to do with our society's celebrity worship.
    (40 days ago, 0 stars)

    So we should care about his loss because he is a celebrity of sorts? No thanks. His tragedies are no greater than our own, and I can guaran-damn-tee you he doesn't give two $#!+s about the losses of our loved ones.
    (40 days ago, -8 stars)

    So do you open the obituary page every day and keep the families of those people in your thoughts and prayers? Send those familes good vibes? I'll bet not, so the questions remain: Why Taysom and his family? What makes them so special?

    Interesting. BYU fans are claiming this is just a jilted ex-girlfriend trying to drag a "good guy" through the mud and he "accidentally" violated the order. Those claims become harder to believe if two women have orders against him.

    I can't wait to hear the players and coaches try to rationalize this by saying Gonzaga just had "one of those nights", as if Utah was powerless to stop them. %) Jesus, how can we come out so flat?

    Sleep walking on defense. Oven mitts on offense. This is ugly.

    But that's not being fired for being unable to get an assistant coach to cooperate as a source; that is being fired for being a wreckless and/or bad reporter.
    (52 days ago, 2 stars)

    She was fired because one assistant coach wouldn't cooperate as her source? Hmmm, something doesn't add up there. I seriously doubt reporters are fired for something so trivial.
    (52 days ago, 2 stars)

    This wouldn't work though. BYU could claim all they want that Utah is coming, but fans will know months in advance it ain't happening because BYU won't be on Utah's schedule.

    The best they can hope for from Notre Dame is probably a neutral site game, most likely in Chicago or Indianapolis. Their is no incentive for the Irish to go to Provo.

    You think they wouldn't like to see Hill and Krystko hit the road? They may not specifically want LDS people in there, but they definitely want someone else. And if those replacement are less effective, bonus. If the replacements happened....
