So that means he was hurt preseason, at the beginning of the season, and then again mid-season but continued to play injured, and now has to have surgery. I'm getting less impressed with Wynn as time goes on. I'm hoping they've found some good recruits for next year because I have a feeling we'll be needing them.

Explains why he's been doing poorly lately. Hopefully Cain will bring some magic, and Griff gets some time.

Washington, UT

Cain will do fine, if you offensive coordinators at Utah will use your heads and understand you need Urban Meyer's zone read version of the spread, which allows a QB like Cain to put pressure on a defense by making plays with his feet. Your inability to use your personnel effectively is a major reason for the disappointing losses.

Hopefully, you're not silly enough to think you have a shot at either Boise or Nevada running your power spread, which is both predictable and unproductive against the good teams...heck, I'll even include BYU's defense which pretty much shut you down.

Santa Monica, CA

Gosh, Shawn M--I'm sure Jordan feels bad enough missing the bowl game. How cruel of you to add failing to impress shawnm from Lehi because you've had a few too many injuries.

Minneapolis, MN

this explains his lackluster play this season! he's been underthrowing everything all year long. Now we know why! Glad he's getting it fixed so he'll be ready to roll for next season!!

Cottonwood Heights, UT

OK...so that explains some things. Can't blame Wynn for wanting to play and even hurt he was able to lead the Utes to some great wins. I agree...let's get him healthy and ready for next year. With this much time to prepare a game plan, the Utes will be fine in Vegas (well, unless we get Boise, that could be a bit too much).

Been a good season, lots of fun...Thanks Utes

So a future Heisman trophy and National Championship winner was beat by a wounded qb? Hhmmmmmmm.

Thanks Jordan for sending them home with a loss.

Get better soon.

Bountiful, UT

I hope BYU shuts our team down like they did this year for years to come. Then we won't ever lose a game again!

Payson, UT

Wishing Jordan a speedy recovery.

Let it heal so that you don't jeopardize your future. We'll be looking for you next fall.

American Fork, UT

Cain, glad you get a chance to finish your career starting a bowl game, but please stop with the 'soldier' analogies. You guys are players, not soldiers, and pretending you're at war just disparages those who put their lives at risk for our country.

Overton, NV

I was prepared to say some nice things about Winn and the Utes, but then I read some of the ridiculous comments on here.

So I'll just say this: Karma.

No pac 12, a national champ winner this season(see nc utes 2010 who disappeared) and a leader of one of the top 2 teams in the nation(see yewt captain zane taylor) barely beat a true freshman qb at home. Wasn't that the yewty excuse last year

Ann Arbor, MI


You will need a Juco (4 star) running back and now QB in this recruiting class. The offense is doomed next year unless strategic pick-ups are made.

Wynn is proving to be injury prone...I don't see this changing. Griff is not the answer.

Murray, UT

Wynn has looked great at times, and mediocre at others. Looks like Mike Sorensen - who wondered in his column a week ago whether Wynn was playing injured - had the correct diagnosis even before Whittingham and the doctors.

Here's hoping the mediocre Wynn can be explained away by these shoulder problems, and the upcoming surgery and rehab will allow him to be playing at 100% by next fall. The Utes will need Wynn at his best when they start a PAC 12 schedule next season.

Iowa City, IA

I bet there's a lot of religion on campus right now, U fans PRAYING they don't get Boise State.

I wish him the best and a speedy recovery from the surgery.

Ted H., consider getting over it bro.

Salt Lake City, UT

Sad for Jordan, but at least this helps explain why the offense hasn't been the same the last several games as it was earlier in the season.

Yes, of course, the level of competition changed. But, it wsa more than that as Wynn regularly over-threw and under-threw open receivers.

I wish Jordan a speedy recovery and look forward to him being back to normal next fall.

You deftly illustrate a key difference between Ute fans and zoobs. Ute fans say, "bring it on, let's be challenged by the best team we can line up." If we win, its a reason to celebrate. If we lose, then we grow from the experience and there's no shame as long as the effort was there. That's why we are excited about the challenge of the PAC-12. We know ten win seasons will be much harder to come by and we know that there will be some tough seasons. But each year we get to aim for the Rose Bowl and will grow from the increased competition.

Zoobs would rather have a ten-win seasons padded with the games against lower half of the WAC than risk a 7-5 season against tough competition.

Memo to Hedgehog:

Come in off the ledge buddy. I can think of another recent Ute QB who had to undergo surgery early in his career. That ultimately led to a fantastic 2008 season.

Let's wish Jordan well and look forward to him being fully healthy next year.

South Jordan, UT

Utes do have a 4 star running back next year....HARVEY LANGI
