Popular Mechanics apologizes to Utah by sending cupcakes

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Popular Mechanics, who chose to spew venom in the direction of the Utah Utes by referring to their game against Harbaugh’s Michigan crew as a “cupcake game,” laid down its sword and spologized when they shipped a dozen cupcakes to the university.

Utah Utes Football: Is This The Year?

I recently found some rare never before seen footage of the 2014 coaching staff before fall camp began.   Now, I am only joking but after watching the Utes offense last season, most fans can agree that the playbook seemed a little skinny. During most games it seemed like the Utes playbook only consisted of about 6 plays with a majority being run plays. Conservative? Yes Just trying...

Utah Utes Football: Defensive Depth

The University of Utah’s 2015 Defense is loaded with talent. I don’t remember another year where there has been so much depth at almost every position. Could this be one of the best defenses in Utah football history? On paper it looks that way. At both end positions the Utes are stacked two deep. All four guys should see major minutes and make major impacts. Hunter Dimick...

Utah defense has visions of domination, again

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah defense has a goal every practice - force four turnovers and take one back for a score. The theory is simple, if turnover margin is one of the greatest predictors of success, then the Utes want to be masters of the takeaway.

Utah Utes Football: Utes Setting Themselves Up For What Could Be A “Special” Season

In 2015 the Utah Utes will boast two of the best, if not the two best, kicker and punter duos in college football. 5’10 205lb...
