Utah Utes: To Bowl or Not to Bowl

Eight days. Eight days until kick off. When no one will be yelling at the supposed ugly mountain uniforms. Instead everyone will be singing how they are a Utah “fan” sir! 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 Utes Football: Depth Chart Offense

Quarterback: Travis Wilson – This is really no surprise, the starting QB job was Wilson’s to lose even though some may have suggested otherwise. Wilson played well last season (when he was healthy) and his game-time experience is vital to the Utes having success in the PAC 12. I would still like to see some packages installed for backup QB Kendall Thompson because of his ability...

RSL: From the Stands

Due to a different work schedule, a 2 hour drive, and usually lack of time, I find it tough to make it to Real Salt Lake games. Generally I am glued to a television or computer monitor watching the game and tweeting out my thoughts. I notice where guys are positioned, how guys are reacting, and seeing goals scored in a view smaller than I wished. In year’s past, I have made it...

RSL Round Up (August 8-16)

The New Hired Gun The rumors proved to provide some truth as RSL was able to officially gain a player via transfers. Sebastian Jaime will be joining Real Salt Lake in the near future. While numbers at this time aren’t released, and knowing the way the league and team operates expect them to never be released, it is rumored to be a seven figure transfer fee to bring the Argentine...

Lift Off For BYU is This Year

The BYU football squad  this year has a lot of hype. Rightfully so in my humble opinion.  This season has potential to be an excitingly successful one for the boys sporting the blue and white. Next season is shaping up to be a wild ride for this team. This year, however, is the year BYU will need to launch itself into relevancy. In order to do so, they have to lift off and win...

NBA Schedule: The Nationally-Televised Teams

With the NBA schedule out, there’s a certain hierarchy between the league and the media, primarily which teams will be nationally televised how often. It helps illuminate how well they think certain teams will do, as well as which franchises are important regardless of their record. ABC has the least amount of games and the higher ratings; therefore the most valuable. TNT would...

Utah Basketball: The Asia Trip Game 1

The PAC-12 All Star team is in China and the first game is in the books. All three Utah players made it into the game. So, what do Utah basketball fans need to know? I personally am not sure. How good is the competition they are playing? I figure it is just as indicative as summer league in the NBA. For example, Ian Clark was a summer league star who can’t get on the floor with...

The 27-year-old striker comes to RSL from Union Espanola. Jaime will occupy a Designated Player spot, based on his transfer fee. No true number has been established on the transfer fee, and probably never will, but it is said to...

After a 14th minute goal by Javier Morales, RSL was able to hold on against Colorado. Early in the 2nd half, Aaron Maund received his 2nd...

Rudy Gobert Our Center of the Future?

One thing you should know about me: I’m a francophile.  (No that’s not what you think… don’t go there!)  Simply put a francophile is someone who is shall we say enamored with anything and everything French, the language, the food, the culture, etc.  It’s not limited to France because there are many French speaking countries but for me it is especially true when France...

Phillips is an All American candidate and one of the most reliable kickers in the country. The punting game will also boast an All American candidate in returning junior punter Tom Hackett.

Five Ways the Utah Jazz Have Improved

That 25-57 season is behind the Utah Jazz. It was a season of frustration, disappointment, tanking-not-tanking, a yeoman season to do what needed to be done to set up the franchise for the future. And so far, one thing they’ve done is get even younger. Lest we forget, Richard Jefferson was 3rd on the team in total minutes played last year. No one over 30 is going to crack the top...

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...
