    As promised.

    The offense was all but inept. His reasoning? They do not have enough of the right personal to run a pro style offense and need to recruit bigger, pass blocking, linemen. The execution was very poor and the qb's are not very good. He said he can't believe he is saying it but they need wynn and that worries him.

    The tight ends, a very important position in the wco, are not good enough. The rb's will have to catch passes out of the backfield and did not show that ability.

    He thinks the personel are just wrong for the offense they are trying to run.

    He thinks the defense will be outstanding.

    "A buddy of mine"

    You talking about the 5,000 fans that sat in the winter storm and watched a REAL football game.

    Or the 12,000 fans that was getting a tan, watching the players in the leotards trying to imitate the red rocks

    the other paper ( which reported on the spring game) mentioned an attendance of 15,000..... largest crowd ever.

    Remember all that Spring game attendance trash talk people were talking a few days ago? Anyone know the attendance at the Red-White game? Just curious...

    "A buddy of mine, that is a ute fan but not an absolute tool, went today. He'll give me an accurate assesment of it and I'll post something. He went to the one earlier in the week as well and he was not impressed."

    Ducky,

    What, no Kwhitt or Spence Eccles inside scoop? Just your roomate? I'm sure all Ute fans will be holding thier breath awaiting your dire, gloom and doom report.

    By the way Duhkunter Utah signed another QB. You asked me to let you know. Now you have some extra Ute bashing on your plate. Good luck. By the way where is the LOL that you use so freely ? Nobody laughs but you. Why not just let the coaches coach as Whittingham , that you know so well, will do what HE thinks is best for the team.
    It's good to be a Ute ! Go Red Rocks !

    Looks like the offense was not good. Oh well.

    ==========

    LOL...Trouble ahead for the Utes. 4 man rush, 7 in coverage, with a vanilla D.

    The Utes are going to struggle to put up points in the Pac 12

    Please read the article ! The statement from coach Whitt is to showcase the NEW talent. During the regular season Utah fans may not see the reloads and this is a great time to see the new recruits. In addition why not hold out some starters to cut down on injuries to the first team starters ? Cougar fans should be concerned with their new coaching staff and a mediocre signing class, but some would prefer to elevate the Y's program by putting down the Utes. That behavior should have been left behind in Jr. High.
    I'm sure that with 7 home games and a schedule that has Idaho, Idaho State, New Mexico State, that the Cougars have on their schedule and just be content. Leave the Ute bashing alone. Don't the Cougar fans have their work cut out for them by contacting more missionaries in the field ?
    I, for one, am looking for the start of the game to see what the new blood looks like and leave the decisions of who plays what to the former COY in Whittingham and 3 time assistant COY in Coach Norm.
    It's good to be a Ute!!
    Red Rocks !

    @sammyg

    A buddy of mine, that is a ute fan but not an absolute tool, went today. He'll give me an accurate assesment of it and I'll post something. He went to the one earlier in the week as well and he was not impressed.

    Utesie21, I guess at 7:51am I'm an early riser huh? So how did the Non-Punt, Pass, or Kick scrimmage go?

    My guess is that the fans did not get to see much. It's not ready to show and the continued injuries are dragging things down. Hoping your RBs showed up. According to the article that seemed to be the main focus.

    Coach Whit didn't call for a real scrimmage like BYU did so that would disappoint most fans. Anxious to hear how things went even with the training wheels on.

    Palamo is the real deal...freakishly fast and shifty for a big guy. And Langi is proving himself a stud...Great running game this year, fun to watch. A healthy Wynn will be huge. Still, we won't know anything until Fall ball...We may drop 4 games this year, but the competition will be so good, and the games so much more exciting...

    What is a "beat-digger" anyway? Please don't explain because I went to Alta and don't care.

    Can't wait until September!

    I hope this Palamo kid is the real deal and takes it to the competition. Rugby players are just plain crazy so it will be fun to see how he translates.

    Although we already know how Morgan Scalley turned out:)

    Go Utes!...on to the PAC12

    Wow, three comments from three fans who care about the Utes more than any other team! This is great!
    I'm excited for the Spring Game, it'll be a lot of fun, and maybe the offense can find its footing today against the limited defense, and then it can get started from there! Go Utes! Make this 4 comments!

    They know if they rush more than 4 on their no-name QB that it will get ugly.

    Wow sam you deny not being a Ute hater but your the first to comment on Ute article? You crack me up! Are you that obessed? Do your dreams consist of you standing in front of the Ute Football team saying your clever comments? You never have any valid points, least duckhunter tries to discredit the U of U.

    No kickoffs, no punt returns, defense restrictions, several not playing, etc.

    Did the writer forget to mention that this was 'flag football'?

    Losers cleaning RES? Wow, not what I was expecting for a Spring finish.
