Utah Utes Football: Friday’s Spring Practice Thoughts and Observations

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.

Utah Utes Football: Vertical Routes

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...

Utah Utes Football: Spring Wide Receiver Breakdown

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...
