Utah football signs Thomas Yassmin

Utah has went down under again to find a player, but this time it’s not a punter. Utah announced the signing of Thomas Yassmin, a three-star rated (247sports.com) athlete on Tuesday. The 6’ 4”, 240 pound Aussie is listed as a tight end and I’ve seen reports that he can run a 4.5 40-yard dash. Utah’s offense doesn’t really feature tight ends anymore, so it’ll be interesting to see...

The Utes have resigned Tareke Lewis, an original signee from last season’s class, but didn’t qualify in time for the season, so he used his redshirt to get eligible.

Utah rolls past Stanford 75-60

The Utes bounced back for a nice home win Thursday night against Stanford, after a terrible showing against Colorado about a week ago. The Utes were down a man, with Donnie Tillman sitting out the game, and was listed as day-to-day going foward, for some unknown reason (as of right now at least). The Utes were a lot more focused and sharp from the start, and they were able to use...

Utah football ranked 28th in early S&P+ projections

Utah hasn’t always been loved by a lot of the metrics out there, at least the last couple of seasons. Utah has largely out performed many projections and metrics, and if they do so again this next season, at least based off of these first S&P+ metrics, they’ll have a very nice season. The Utes are ranked by Bill Connelly 28th in the early S&P+ rankings. The rankings rank...
