With spring ball all wrapped up, football season is just a few months away from starting. Pretty soon summer conditioning will start, then fall camp will begin and before you know it Jim Harbaugh will be throwing his sharpie down on the sidelines of Rice Eccles Stadium crying to the officials about a call.
Football is upon us my friends, fall CANNOT come soon enough!!!

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Kyle Whittingham's teams at Utah are known for their defense and 2015 should be no different. The unit returns nine starters from last year's roster and was sharp throughout spring practices.
The Utes ended their spring session Saturday with a game that was dominated by defense despite several starters being held out on both sides.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Devontae Booker's football career could have easily ended years ago - on more than one occasion.
Now he's the centerpiece of the Utah offense and a year away from a possible selection in the NFL draft.
The Utes running back was eight yards shy of setting the school's single-season rushing record in his first year with the program. That after sitting out all of...

Kyle Whittingham and his Utah Utes coaching staff are doing their best to ramp up recruiting efforts for the football team.
In their latest attempt, Whittingham and company channeled their inner Vin Diesel for a “Furious 7″ spoof video that the coaching staff decided to use to highlight their recruiting efforts.
In the video, we see the Utah Utes coaching staff driving around...
That darn third foul call against Duke probably cost Utah fans another season with Delon Wright. Now that Delon has been crowned the best college point guard in college basketball, his stock is high and he’s moving on the the NBA.
Losing a player of this caliber isn’t easy to recover from, but here are three reasons the Utes will be just as successful next year.
1. No Identity...

As the 2015-2016 college football season rapidly approaches (though not rapidly enough for many of us), Kyle Whittingham and the Utes will be looking to not only maintain the level of success from last season (winning Pac-12 record, sweep of the Cali schools, undefeated non-conference record, Top 25 ranking), but to also build upon that success.
With the loss of players...
For the majority of practice I paid attention to the Defensive side of the ball. I was mostly interested in watching and listening to Coach Pease and seeing how he taught and interacted with the players. Towards the end of practice I gravitated towards the Offensive side of the ball, paying close attention to the Offensive Line and the Wide Receivers. After that I observed the Offense...
With their 57-63 loss to the Duke Blue Devils, The Runnin’ Utes season has come to an end, it was a sweet ride to be on this year and if all goes well it’ll be even better next year… Now its time to Play Ball!!
Thats right, University of Utah Utes Baseball is underway and has been for a while. Utah sits at 9-17 overall with a PAC 12 record of 3-6, good for 7th in the Conference...
The Philadelphia Eagles have a hole at right guard with the departure of offensive lineman Todd Herremans and last season had Evan Mathis and Jason Kelce missing significant time with injuries. With those factors, the Eagles need to draft an offensive lineman to provide themselves with some more depth.
According to Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net, the Eagles along with the Dallas...
The Utah Utes Football team practiced at Rice Eccles Stadium for the first time this spring and many eyes were on the backup quarterback spot. Travis Wilson has a lock on the one spot right now with his experience (despite still putting a few passes low or in the dirt today) with Kendall Thompson likely to contest him for the two spot in the fall. However, most fans want to know...
After last season, many Ute fans may have forgotten what a vertical route looks like. (see image above). Fans became accustomed to 2 and 3 yard outs and 3 and 4 yard curls even when it was 3rd and 14. It’s not that the Utes didn’t have the athletes to perfect these downfield passes last season, it’s that for some reason the downfield passing game just wasn’t part of last...
Breaking news: The Utah Utes play the Duke Blue Devils in the Sweet 16!
Okay, I know that isn’t news unless you have just returned from being stranded on an island, Cast Away style. But, that isn’t the point. The Utes need to find a way to win against the Blue Devils. To do that, I looked at the three close battles Duke lost – twice to Notre Dame and once to NC State. I don’t...
Meet the 2014-2015 Utah Utes cheerleaders, a criminally underappreciated Pac-12 cheerleading squad. While schools like UCLA and Oregon get most of the West Coast national media attention, Utah’s busy making the NCAA Sweet 16 and finishing in the Top 25 in college football. And who’s there all the while spurring them on? The Utes cheerleaders.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah coach Kyle Whittingham wants to finish spring practices with a defined quarterback depth chart.
That may be easier said than done with the options he has at the moment.
The Utes began spring workouts Tuesday with six quarterbacks taking reps. Senior Travis Wilson is getting the majority of the snaps with the starters and Whittingham says the rest are being...

Punching your ticket into the Big Dance is really only about one-fourth of the work. Who you have to play in the first game is a whole other battle. If anybody knows that, it’s Utah.
The Utes had quite the season, thanks to a rejuvenated program. Players such as stand-out star Delon Wright gave Utah a fresh boost.
But after a not-quite-as-stellar end to the regular season, the...

Just in time for postseason play, let’s recap the road the Runnin’ Utes have traveled to get to where they stand today.
Back on October 23rd when the Pac-12 released its official pre-season ranking predictions, no one was surprised to see Arizona atop the polls. But right below was them was the Runnin’ Utes of Utah, the same Runnin’ Utes who had won just 6 games a few years...
The WR position is an intriguing position that you’ll want to keep an eye on during spring camp. The Utes return a bunch of talented receivers but it remains to be seen if there is a go to guy that can fill the void left by Dres Anderson.
Last season the passing game was atrocious and in most games non-existent. The Utes cannot afford to have that happen again this season as teams...
