Offensive overview Next » 1 of 12 « Prev
The Utes have a lot of figuring out to do on this side of the ball before the season begins. They've been snakebit at quarterback for the past two seasons. They also need to find a leader at running back, shore up the offensive line and find more wide receivers and/or tight ends to help take pressure off Dres Anderson.

And to top it all off, Kyle Whittingham has shuffled the offensive staff again. New offensive coordinator and former Wyoming head coach Dave Christensen has his work cut out for him as he tries to put together an offense capable of moving the ball against Pac-12 defenses.

News flash, Sam Tevi is by several accounts moving to the O Line. He's a super athlete. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at OT.

Way, way, WAY too early.

Excellent article. I agree with the analysis. What about local 4-star recruit Harvey Langi? Isn't he due to be back from his mission before the season begins?

Why no mention of Gioni Paul at linebacker. He sat out last year after transferring from Miami. He was the best defensive player on the team last year when he couldnt play. The linebacker group will carry this team next year. Norris, Paul and Whittingham are all, all conference players.
