Duke, Utah clash at Madison Square Garden

In what will be looked at or billed as a “revenge” game, the Duke Blue Devils will face off against The Utah Utes this upcoming season on December 19th. Now you might ask what would be the significance of a non-conference game before Christmas in the middle of December? Well besides the fact that Duke defeated Utah in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA tournament in March 63-57,...

Utah Utes Football: Will Booker join the 2,000 yard club?

Utah Utes Football: Putting the “Swagg” in Swagger

Last season Dominique Hatfield was called upon to help the Utes out at cornerback. Playing defense wasn’t anything new to the Utes wide receiver as he had played defense in high school and was recruited by Coach Shah.  However having spent his first couple seasons on the offensive side of the ball, the 5’10 175lb Jr went from running routes to covering routes and made what...

Utah Utes Football: Left Side Strong Side

Everyone knows a good offense only goes as far as its offensive line allows it to. In fact, if the big fellas up front aren’t up to par, you can pretty much expect your offense to not be very good at all. The offensive line is the engine of the offense, when it’s clicking on all cylinders it’s a beautiful thing but when it’s sputtering, well, you get the picture. Utah’s...

Utah Utes Football: Step up and Shine

6’3 200lbs, the Utes have had success in the past with players of this size. Unpolished at the cornerback position, coaches have been able to take a couple of guys and turn them into NFL caliber players. Sean Smith was a 6’3 200ish lb running back when he came to Utah. Smith spent a little bit of time at running back before making the switch to wide receiver. When coaches felt...

Utah Utes Football: Welcome to the Kongo

Linebackers are usually the most feared players on the football field. Quarterbacks fear them, running backs fear them, wide receivers fear them and I think it’s even safe to say most offensive lineman fear them. To be a linebacker there are a few qualities one must possess. Not necessarily in order but all equally important. 1. Toughness 2. Athleticism/Have some wheels 3. A born...

Utah Utes Football: Down In The Trenches

The Nose Tackle and Defensive Tackle positions have always been one of the strongest position groups throughout Utah football history.

This year is no different...
