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 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...

Utah Utes Football Position Previews: Running Backs

The 2014 group of running backs is one of the most talented and deep that we have seen at Utah in years. With many backs to choose from, all with different styles and strengths, look for the Utes to not only utilize this group in the run game but in the passing game as well.

A handful of days after it was first reported, Utah officials have confirmed to the Deseret News that quarterback Micah Thomas has left the football program and will transfer to an unknown university to continue his collegiate playing career. The decision to leave the Utes came down to playing time, or lack thereof. As he was buried behind four quarterbacks on the depth chart,...

Utah Utes Basketball: Managing Expectations

Coming into last season the PAC-12 media had the Runnin’ Utes finishing ninth in the conference. The Utes sure proved them wrong by finishing in eighth. However, in early offseason talk, the media is showing quite a different opinion. The Utes looked like a sure fire pick to finish in the top half of the league standings, but the early departures of UCLA’s Jordan Adams and Colorado’s...

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. While I respect his opinion and understand his trepidation in light of the Utes’ impending gauntlet-like strength of schedule (ranked 11th in the country), I can’t see the Utes winning only 5 games for the third year in a row...

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...

Why Utah Football will be Successful this Year

By: Dallan Forsyth The University of Utah football team has been through a lot over the first few years since joining the Pac-12. Wasn’t that what should have been expected though? The Utes were not recruiting Pac-12 athletes at the time and didn’t have the depth at key positions to stable us if injuries hit. It took a few years to get to where they are today but this is the...
