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 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.

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...
