Photo that got BYU Football player suspended emerges

BYU linebacker Spencer Hadley has been suspended by BYU just days before their game against the Utah Utes in the “Holy War.”  The reason for the suspension is that a Utah fan ratted on Hadley for being in Las Vegas and partying, which is a violation of the BYU honor code.  Hadley is in the blue-green shirt in the middle holding up what looks to be a bottle of Dom Pérignon...

Former US skier now Utah kicker

Former US ski team member Andy Phillips once skied off a cliff and snapped his femur in half. So kicking a football is easy. The 24-year-old redshirt freshman had never played in a football game at any level when he nailed three field goals in Utah's season-opening 30-26 victory over rival Utah State. He also went 3 for 3 on extra points. ''We didn't get the opening...

Coach: Players meant no disrespect

Reilly's mettle earns team's respect

Toughness is a defining characteristic of Trevor Reilly's personality. Reilly's grit on Utah's defense was displayed last season when he played with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Rather than opting for surgery and ending his junior season, Reilly wore a heavy brace and played through the pain. Then in the offseason, he battled a different kind of pain when his...

Utah's Erickson happy to be back in the game

Turns out Dennis Erickson found life without football pretty boring. The veteran college coach took a season off after he was let go by Arizona State in 2011, thinking maybe at that point he'd retire. But after sitting out and watching fall Saturdays pass him by, he decided he'd had enough. Erickson was hired in January as a co-offensive coordinator at Utah under head coach...

(Eds: Adds details, quotes.) By JOHN COON Associated Press Travis Wilson was quickly labeled the team's quarterback of the future upon signing with Utah.
