Utah Utes Football: Could the Utes Lose to Idaho State?

Could the Utah Utes Football team really lose to Idaho State? Ok, I’ll admit it… the title of this column is a shameless hook. We all know that Idaho State is a warm-up game against a FCS team that the Utes scheduled much like every other Power 5 school does the first week, so it’s an obvious win. But given that it’s a win, what will the Utes need to accomplish in order to...

Utah Utes: To Bowl or Not to Bowl

Eight days. Eight days until kick off. When no one will be yelling at the supposed ugly mountain uniforms. Instead everyone will be singing how they are a Utah “fan” sir! This year may even include a bowl game or will it? When I look at a schedule I see the games in three ways: wins, coin flips, losses. With that, let me say how I see things as they stand now. Then we can get...

Utah Utes Football: Depth Chart Offense

Quarterback: Travis Wilson – This is really no surprise, the starting QB job was Wilson’s to lose even though some may have suggested otherwise. Wilson played well last season (when he was healthy) and his game-time experience is vital to the Utes having success in the PAC 12. I would still like to see some packages installed for backup QB Kendall Thompson because of his ability...

UTAH UTES PREVIEW: Kickers/Punters/Special Teams

The kicking and punting game should be very good again this season. Returning sophomore kicker Andy Phillips will look to continue his stellar play from last season. Phillips is an All American candidate and one of the most reliable kickers in the country. The punting game will also boast an All American candidate in returning junior punter Tom Hackett. Hackett was first team All...

Utah WR Dres Anderson following in father's footsteps

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- As a UCLA Bruin and then later as a Los Angeles Ram, Willie Lee "Flipper" Anderson could fly. As a Bruin, he was Troy Aikman's main target. In 10 years in the NFL, he set single-game records for the most receiving yards and the most receiving yards from scrimmage. Flipper averaged 26 yards per catch.  There's another Anderson averaging a lot...

Utah Utes Offensive Line Preview

Everybody knows that the success of an offense is determinant upon the success of the offensive Line. The run game and the pass game rely upon the big fellas up front to make the offense move. Last season this was an area where the Utes struggled mightily. The offensive line struggled to play consistently well, therefore the offense struggled. New offensive line coach Jim Harding...

Senior guard Delon Wright, Utah aim to end NCAA tournament drought

After reaching the Pac-12 tournament semifinals in 2012-13, Utah felt better about its chances of competing within the conference in 2013-14 for a variety of reasons. While the improved maturity of players such as Dallin Bachynski, Jordan Loveridge and Brandon Taylor was certainly a factor, the addition of junior college transfer Delon Wright was another. Lauded for his versatility...

Utah Utes QB Travis Wilson glad to be back after health scare

Travis Wilson is familiar with just about everything at the Elite 11, from the schedule to the coaching staff he worked with at the event several years ago when he was a rising senior in high school. He has thrown the branded Nike footballs at the competition too many times to count and has stood out through several days of competition (and not just for his long, flowing hair). ...

Utah Utes Preview: Wide Receivers

Another new season for the Utes will bring a new Offensive Coordinator, a brand new Wide Receiver Coach and another new Up-Tempo Offense being installed. The Wide Receiver group up on the hill will be utilized this season more than they ever have in season’s past.

Utah Utes Football Quaterbacks Preview

Quarterback depth and injuries have been somewhat of a problem over the past few seasons for the Utes. Injuries to starters in particular has been quite a detriment on the offensive side of the ball turning the fast paced-high scoring offense into a slow paced-get us in field goal range type of offense. The Utes offense seems to go as the QB goes and when the QB’s are struggling...

The 2014 group of running backs is one of the most talented and deep that we have seen at Utah in years.

Utah Utes Football: Rebuttal and 2014 Predictions

In a recent episode of the Jockularity show, Hans Olsen from ESPN 700 predicted that the Utah Utes Football team would not make it to a bowl game in 2014.

Utah Utes Football: Players that should change positions

On the heels of hearing that Harvey Langi will be switching to defense when he returns home from a mission in June. I really like this move for Langi. It will be interesting to see if he was able to keep most of his speed and quickness along with the added size. In my opinion, I would love to see him drop down to a lean mean 225-230lbs. and assume a Jacoby Hale type role with the...
