Utah Utes Football: #7

Has there ever been a more polarizing figure in the history of Utah Utes football than Travis Wilson? Fans either love him or fans dislike him. (Hate is too strong of a word and I don’t think anyone really hates the kid and if you do that’s your own personal problem.) Fans either clamor for him or fans want him shunned to the bench never to step foot on the field again. Either...

Don’t dismiss ‘Bridge of Spies’ as lesser Spielberg; it excels on every level

Any Steven Spielberg movie should be considered an event. But I wasn’t really feeling much excitement for Bridge of Spies. Maybe because the marketing — especially the posters — were so boring. (Yes, I get that Tom Hanks is the selling point for audiences, so he has to be prominently featured. But his face between the U.S. and USSR flags really doesn’t say a whole lot. Great...

The coaching staff as a Tom Hanks movie Apollo 13. Because they are possibly leading a doomed flight. Or they can make Walter Cronkite cry on the air and win the Cup.
