You guys are so pathetic. This is like saying ND is not a storied program
because they have not won a nat'l championship since 1988.Ask any
sports media person and they will say that BYU is known for its QB factory.
Period. Storied programs simply have a track record of doing things, even if its
way back in the 80's like BYU's NC which U don't have.Keep wishing
that your QB will take you to the 'promised land'. It ain't happening this year,
or the next one either.This September is pay back and it won't be
pretty on ESPN for U.By the way, how many Ute games on TV and
exclusively on radio this year?
@ Navel Vet, Duckhunter Hunter Thanks guys !By the time September
comes he'll be down to pin feathers. Nothing is too good for the man from the
marsh. Other than Riley has any of the clip board and wannabe QB's taken a
snap ?Only 92+ days left, think we can hang on that long sand put our
theories to rest?In Provo, Utah by 5
Most, if not all, of Duhkunter's points are based merely on opinion and
conjecture instead of fact or evidence on any level. That's why it's such a joy
to engage him in debate. And then, at the end of many of his posts he writes
"LOL" like a little school girl texting her friends and wonders why
even the most ardent BYU fans won't claim him.
One thing quacky tries to hide is that NO y QB has done ANYTHING in the NFL
since Steve Young - more than a decade since he left. So he is bragging that y
puts QBs into the NFL? Hilarious.Alex Smith far surpasses - by
leaps and bounds - any QB coming out of y since Young. And if you look at where
Young was at Smith's age, Alex is pretty similar to Young (and remember that
Young could not do anything in the NFL until he go a Ute for head coach). Even
the great (in Utah County only) Ty Detmer's 14 year NFL career pales in
comparison to what Smith has done in his first six seasons.Quackers
will never admit the truth that is staring him in the face - y will always be in
the shadow cast by the U!!Go Utes! Go Crimson!Good luck
with independence/irrelevance, and with the Dons and Toreros!
AggieLuva:"BYU has 3 or 4 QB's that are way better than your
starting QB in Wynnie. Heaps, Nelson, Lark and possibly Munns, not to sure on
him."Actually, you aren't sure about ANY of them. Yours was
just a frantic and emotional cry for attention. You have no proof that any of
your QBs are even remotely better than any of ours. The only thing we DO know
is that on the field, buth a Freshman Wynn, and a Sophomore Wynn posted a higher
year end QB rating than Heaps. And since Heaps beat out the other QBs, it's
clear who has been able to prove it on field; not on the comment boards.And, as Uteology so astutely pointed out, Wynn has more wins than your
entire QB roster combined.
Duckhunter:You had earlier accused me of "lying". The quip
that you cut-&-pasted, was true. So true WAS it, that you neither did, nor
could, even refute it. So I'm not sure why you cut-&-pasted it as if you
were providing evidence to me being a liar.Look. You failed to prove
your accusation of me "lying". Thus, you were the liar in accusing me
of such. Case closed!As far as my "s.o.p.", I felt that 4
yrs would have been sufficient to establish a trendline as to whether or not a
school, as you claimed, "routinely signs a top 25 qb or 2 pretty much every
year." Even adding a 5th year  still did not produce any significant
value of sustainability. You scored 4 out of 7 yrs. Utah scored 6. Edge: Utah.

Duckhunter:"...claiming blechen as a qb signing proves how far
you are trying to reach to make up some 'truth' as he was never a qb

own research. Check out Utah's 2010 class on Rivals. Blechen is listed as a QB
out of Moorpark, CA. Now click his icon. It clearly states position ranking:
#14. Case closed!Once again, it was YOU who was guilty of
"making up some 'truth'."Now I think it's pretty obvious,
just by reading this entire page of the back-and-forth dialogue we've had with
each other, who between us has been truthful, and who has not. It's furthermore
obvious who between us knows what they're talking about, and who just
frantically and emotionally makes stuff up. The comments are all there for
everyone to see. Only one of us has been able to consistently cut-&-paste
our opponents faux facts and willful deceptions, while the other....has nothing.
You lose Duckhunter. Case closed.

Naval I can cut and paste as well. here is one directly from your post."The only Top-25 quarterback the cougars have signed within the last 4
years was Heaps. -- Naval Vet"Hmmmmmm.......Selective "facts" are your s.o.p.Obviously BYU signs top
qb's, and puts qb's in the nfl. utah signs qb's and moves them to defense. Even
claiming blechen as a qb signing proves how far you are trying to reach to make
up some 'truth' as he was never a qb recruit.I'll await for your
@Naval VetBYU has 3 or 4 QB's that are way better than your starting
QB in Wynnie. Heaps, Nelson, Lark and possibly Munns, not to sure on him.
Regardlees of what stars or how high they are ranked, BYU has always been know
to have excellent QB's. It's obvious Utah doesn't know how to play all the
talent they have at QB, they move most of them to the defense. I do like what
Utah does in that regard, but to even try to think the Utes are on the same
level for QB's, it's NO comparison.
Duckhunter:Correction: As of today, Rivals finally released their
position rankings. Utah QB-recruit Travis Wilson was #16. So that's still 6
"top 25 qb(s)" for Utah in the past 7 yrs [not bad], to 4 for the
cougars.But by all means, please go ahead and cut-&-paste any
"lies" I may have posted. Otherwise, the person with "truthiness
issues" is YOU.
Duckhunter:Once again...you said, "BYU routinely signs a top 25
qb or 2 pretty much every year." (Notice how I use the
cut-&-paste function when I'm pointing out YOUR "truthiness
issues".)But I have proven that they do not. Now you're trying
to lower the bar to Top 30. Admit it. You lied.Here's another
"truthiness issue" issue of yours. You said that in 2006, Reilly
Murphy was the "#3 ranked JC qb Scout". I checked Scout. They don't
rank JC players like Rivals does. So how would you know? Additionally, the Y
has no "Reilly Murphy" signing an LOI back in 2006. I even checked
'05 and '07. Nothing. And ditto for Rivals.Riley Nelson was an
unranked QB. So again, not "top 25".So including Mangum,
I count 4 "top 25 qb(s)" in the last 7 yrs.In that same
frame, the Utes had signed/committed Griff Robles [Rivals #12], Terrance Cain
[Rivals #1 JUCO], Jordan Wynn [Rivals #22], Brian Blechen [Rivals #14], Tyler
Shreve [Rivals #20]. Rivals had not yet ranked the 2012 class, but Scout ranked
Travis Wilson #24.So including Wilson, I count 6 "top 25
qb(s)" for Utah.
Let's see naval2006 James Lark Rivals #25 Scout #16, Reilly Murphy
#3 ranked JC qb Scout2007 Jason Munns Rivals #15 Scout #272008 No
qb's recruited but announced transfer of Reilly Nelson2009 Taysom Hill
Rivals #30 Scout #30 sure he's #30, not 25 but still a top qb2010 Jake
Heaps Rivals #1 Scout #12011 signed Jake Kuresa, Not going to play qb2012 Commit Tanner Mangum #9 Rivals #17 ScoutSo in the 5 years of
the last 7, and yes I am counting the commits for the coming year, BYU has
signed or committed 6 top 30, 5 top 25, 4 top 20, 3 top 15, 2 top 10, and 1 that
was the #1 qb recruit in the country. That is an average of more than 1 per year
every year they sign a qb. I do like how you simply didn't even list
most of these guys, Lark, Munns, etc. as if they never happened. You have some
truthiness issues. LOL!
Duckhunter:No they dont. The only Top-25 quarterback the cougars
have signed within the last 4 years was Heaps. -- Naval VetIf youre
going to call me a liar, you need to show me, other than Heaps, a top 25 qb that
the Y signed within the last 4 years.And dont say Taysom Hill. He
was ranked #30? And dont say Mangum either. Since neither Mangum
[Scout #17] (nor Ute-recruit Travis Wilson [Scout #24] for that matter) have
signed LOIs, their inclusion on your list has been rightfully omitted. You said,
regularly signs Top 25 QBs. Not regularly recruits them.In 2007 the
Y signed Jason Munns [#15 Rivals, #27 Scout], the same year the U signed Griff
Robles [#12 Rivals, #31 Scout]. You had to go back 5 years to get your 2nd top
25 qb, and that didnt really pull the Y ahead in the signing of them. All it did was demonstrate, that the Y does in fact, NOT routinely sign(s) a
top 25 qb or 2 pretty much every year.And YOU were calling ME a
Troll Hunter We knew this was going to happen, they struggle to develope
QB talent but they can sure turn QBs into LBs.-------------Utah's last two senior QBs: 12-0 and 13-0. Your turn.
Duckhunter:BYU routinely signs a top 25 qb or 2 pretty much every
year.No they dont. The only Top-25 quarterback the cougars have
signed within the last 4 years was Heaps. Thats hardly an annual or routine
accomplishment.In 2011, the only one the Y signed was Alex
Kuresa...a Rivals-rated 2-star.In 2010, the only one the Y signed
was a Rivals-rated #1 4-star Jake Heaps. The U signed Rivals-rated #14 Brian
Blechen, and #20 Tyler Shreve.In 2009, the Y signed no quarterbacks.
The U signed the Rivals-rated #1 JUCO 4-star Terrance Cain, plus the
Rivals-rated #22 QB Jordan Wynn.In 2008, the Y signed no QBs. The U
signed unranked 3-star DeVonte Christopher in 2008For all your
"LOL"-ing, you sure can't back up your assertion of
"routine" top 25 QB recruitment at the Y, can you?L-O-L!
"Oh and by the way, BYU routinely signs a top 25 qb or 2 pretty much every
year. That means 3 years from now there'll be another 5 of them in the
system."If this statement were true, the NFL would be
absolutely littered with BYU quarterbacks. However, that's not the case, I
think there's Beck and Hall in the NFL right now. If there are more, perhaps
someone closer to the Cougar program can enlighten the rest of us.Point is, while BYU has a nice program, they do not sign 2 top 25 QBs year in
and year out. C'mon Duck
"It kinda reminded me a few seasons back when whittingham proclaimed in the
pre season that utah had "the best qb situation in the entire nation"
LOL! It was such a good situation that they managed to get shut out by unlv that
year. LOL! Now that is good qb play."I know that fact checking
is not your strong suit ducky, but Whitt proclaimed his QB situation to be the
best in the country in 06. The UNLV game was in 07, but the facts have never
stopped you before.
I actually like what coach Whit does as far as moving QB's into LB's. That
Blechen(sp) kid is my favorite player and he was recruited as a QB. The
best/most talented kid on every high school team are QB's and I think this a
very smart. As far as Utah having actual QB's is a joke though. If all you have
is Jordan Wynnie to start for a team going again other Pac schools, you are in
serious trouble. I sure hope for the Utes sake that they have some serious
talent coming in to actually play QB. The Utes are done this year and will be
lucky to be .500.
We knew this was going to happen, they struggle to develope QB talent but they
can sure turn QBs into LBs.Where's Urban Meyer when you need him.
@Duhkunter"Oh and by the way, BYU routinely signs a top 25 qb
or 2 pretty much every year. That means 3 years from now there'll be another 5
of them in the system."Weird. All of those top 25 QBs BYU's
been pumping aren't translating into BCS wins or a decent bowl record. And last
year, those same top QBs allowed BYU to get slaughtered by USU (31-16 and it
wasn't even that close). LOL!
@naval"That projects more QB depth at the U than at the
Y"*snicker*That has never been the case in the
history of the two programs and it never will be. Thanks for the LOL though as
it was a full blown belly laugh. I actually spit water all over my keyboard when
I read it.It kinda reminded me a few seasons back when whittingham
proclaimed in the pre season that utah had "the best qb situation in the
entire nation" LOL! It was such a good situation that they managed to get
shut out by unlv that year. LOL! Now that is good qb play.Oh and by
the way, BYU routinely signs a top 25 qb or 2 pretty much every year. That means

otherhand....well there qb signings usually wind up playing on defense. LOL!
Oh no! Ducky says the Utes sky is falling! The Utes Sky is falling! Thanks
for your concern Ducky. We'll be just fine.
CougFaninTXLast I saw, both Tanner Mangum (Y) and Chase Hansen (U)
are planning on missions. Throw in the probability of a red shirt season and
your dates are off by three years.There was nothing wrong with my
post. Just your comprehension skills. Hill will be a Senior in in 2014 [2015
if he redshirts], and Magnum and Hansen will be in the same class. By the time
Mangum and Hansen return from their missions , the only Y players on the
depth chart at that position would be a Jr/Sr Hill, and a slew of your remaining
current unheralded 2-star athletes. At the U, Shreve will be a Jr/Sr, and
Wilson will be a So/Jr. And at that time, we may even have another high touted
Fr/So on the roster from the 2013 class. That projects more QB depth at the U
than at the Y.
Duckhunter: "If a .. qb can switch to linebacker 6 weeks before fall
camp"The actual decision to move him to LB was made weeks ago
with Griff's blessing. Can't wait to see him play LB and to see Hypes flounder,
again!!It is indeed great to be a UTE!The future is
bright, the future is Crimson!! Get Used to it!
@mormon uteWell good luck to him, I sincerely mean that. He just
wasn't ever a very good qb. It also makes you wonder what utah has been
recruiting for linebackers if he can switch from qb and start playing
immediately. I was under the impression from the utah "fans" on here
that utah had the best group of linebackers in the entire pac10, if not the
entire country, even though I can't name a single one of them. If a failed qb
can switch to linebacker 6 weeks before fall camp and then actually get playing
time it says more to me about the lack of quality linebackers in the utah
program than it does about the athletic ability of a former 3rd string qb.
Duckhunter,Hopefully we'll see Robles running down Jake Heaps a few
times as he scrambles to avoid the rush or maybe he'll put one of those
punishing hits on Heaps when he slips around the line on a blitz. Should be fun
@Naval Vet(1) Hansen was recruited to the U by Def. Coordinator Kalani
Sitake and DB/Special Teams coach Jay Hill. Hansen can be quoted saying,
"Im very open to playing on defense, and I have a lot of good experience on
that side of the ball, just whatever is best for me and for the team, I'll
do..."(2) Hansen was recruited to the Y by Off. Coordinator/QB
Brandon Doman. Hansen can be quoted as saying, "Having [Doman] as both my
QB coach and as the off. coordinator there is definitely one of the things I
like best about BYU." That doesnt suggest Doman was recruiting him to play
LB.What you don't understand is the people recruiting these 2 young
men are the IN STATE RECRUITERS! It doesn't matter that Sitake from the defense
talked him into coming, that is his and Coach Hill's job, IN STATE! Doman,
recruits IN STATE to that why he was talking to Chase.This is a good
move for Robles, if he isn't good enough to beat Wynn, he shouldn't play QB at
Well if a qb isn't good enough to be utah's qb then they simply aren't a very
good qb at all. Let's face it being the qb at utah is hardly any sort of huge
accomplishment. But we knew this anyway based on a history of mediocre qb's and
of course robles terrible spring.So now he is going to try to be a
LB, good for him, hopefully he can make the switch, but of course just because
he has been switched there it doesn't mean he'll be any good, We'll find out I
I trust the coaches on this move. They make similar moves every year and it
always seems to work out. Gary Patterson at TCU does the same thing. Coach
Witt and Coach Patterson recruit the best athletes they can get and they're not
afraid to ask them to move, if it will improve the team.In this case
I think Robles could see his best chance to play was to make the switch and
isn't that what the competitors really want to do, play? Having a former QB at
LB will be great. He will be able to read QBs a lot better than most and
anticipate where the ball is going.As far as the QB situation,
obviously all the BYU fans laughing at our QB situation don't see what the
coaches do. I have always maintained Jordan Wynn is tougher than the BYU fans
think. He proved that by playing half the season injured and not complaining.
I know many of you don't believe he was injured until the BYU game, but his play
and the stats prove otherwise.
I'm happy that this very big qb is switching to lb. If they aren't going to play
him at qb then it clearly shows that he wasn't good enough or he didn't have the
desire to develop into someone better than JW. Have fun hitting the pines while
you wait your shot at LB. I'll be watching. And on the little speedster. Speed
is speed. This kid might make you a great returner or maybe he'll be a really
fast water boy. Let's all show him a little love.
@gonefishnI stand corrected. You are absolutely correct. As it stands
right now, BYU has three backup QBs (Nelson, Lark, Munns) who would be starters
at 80% of D1 colleges.@Naval VetLast I saw, both Tanner Mangum
(Y) and Chase Hansen (U) are planning on missions. Throw in the probability of
a red shirt season and your dates are off by three years.
CougfanintxThis is not fantasy football. "they are now looking for
quality back ups". If that is true the cougars are the only D1 program that
I am aware of that will slot a recruit as a starter or pigeon hole them as a
reserve before they show up on campus and compete.psuyb1. Most
prospects have not been rated at this point.2. "Joining the pac has
clearly made a huge difference" correct.
Also on the hot recruit list by ; Utah Arizona Arizona State
Hawaii Idaho USC
So what happens if Wynn goes down at the beginning of the season? all you ute
fans will be comfortable with Shreve being the only QB on your team? After
reading reports of Spring Ball, neither Robles or Shreve were any good, and we
all know Wynn is mediocre at best. So it seems strange to throw out any QB when
there is so much in question at the position. hedgehog,DELSHAWN MCCLELLONRivals: 0-stars UnrankedScout: 0-stars

impressed with Utah's recruiting. Joining the PAC has clearly made a huge
"Sorry Griff!"Blew Kewg,I suspect Griff is
actually thankful for the new opportunity to see real playing time for the Utes.
We all know if Griff was at bYu he'd be in QB puratory holding a clip board on
the sidelines for the remainder of his career.Now he get's the
chance to reinvent himself....just like Paul Kruger of the ravins.
I would like to applaud Griff Robles' decision & his commitment to the team.
It's hard to give up a personal goal, but it's wise to rely on an experienced
coaching staffs' recommendation to move to a position that may be a better fit
and where it may be possible to compete for increased playing time, even with a
stacked LB corps.Clearly, competition is King. Better matching
isn't a loss; it's a decided gain. Every Div I team MUST put their best
athletes on the field at every position; any other policy would be suicidal.That said, this move is another testimony for the U coaches' ability to
maximize the overall capability and potential on the entire roster, and it
speaks to the tradition of team loyalty we continue to see each year as these
adjustments occur. I'm personally looking forward to seeing Griff
make some sensational plays this Fall; I'll be looking for his number on the
field. I have a real sense of respect for this young man, and I
applaud his decision to demonstrate his continuing commitment to the Utah
CougFaninTX:So in other words, what you're saying is, you can't show
anyone anything where Hansen was told he'd have a better shot at QB at the U
than at the Y. I thought not.And the Y is not looking
for quality backups for 2014 or 2015. They're looking for players who can play.
Hill will be a Senior in 2014, and Magnum will be in his same class. You don't
have any other QBs worth mentioning at this point for when Magnum and Hansen are
scheduled to suit up. But Utah does.When Hansen finally enrolls at
the U, he'll be behind experienced upperclassmen QBs like Tyler Shreve and
Travis Wilson.Just admit it. You're bitter and jealous that a
4-star cougar legacy from Utah County "Chose The Red".
@ Naval Vet Thank you for your insights and clarifications. Makes you
wonder what some of the blue bloods got on their reading comprehension exams.
@Naval VetHansen's intentions seem pretty clear to me. I love Norm
Chow and cant wait to play for him, said Hansen. I was able to really sit down
and talk to him over the past few weeks, and I love him. Hes the perfect coach
for me. I feel real comfortable with him."That doesn't sound
like someone who is intending to play LB.With Jake Heaps, Tayson
Hill and Tanner Mangum; BYU is set at QB through 2018. We're just looking for a
couple of solid back-ups at this point. Hansen could see this. Hansen isn't
looking to be in a starting role until 2014 or 2015 and U don't have a QB that
far out. If you sign a top notch QB while he's on his mission, don't be
surprised if his plans change.
CougFaninTX:"...his primary reason for going North was a better
opportunity to play QB."According to Hansen, is primary reason
was, "It's the Pac-12. Its big, it's exciting. I still think BYU is going
in another direction...the Pac-12 was a can't miss experience...".Furthermore...(1) Hansen was recruited to the U by Def.
Coordinator Kalani Sitake and DB/Special Teams coach Jay Hill. Hansen can be
quoted saying, "Im very open to playing on defense, and I have a lot of
good experience on that side of the ball, just whatever is best for me and for

Coordinator/QB Brandon Doman. Hansen can be quoted as saying, "Having
[Doman] as both my QB coach and as the off. coordinator there is definitely one
of the things I like best about BYU." That doesnt suggest Doman was
recruiting him to play LB.You see for yourself on the DNews article
titled "Cougars, Utes lead the recruitment for Chase".Now
can you tell me where Chase was told he'd have a better shot at QB at the U?
Here's how Delshawn McClellon compares to the BYU commit U took shots at:McClellon 5'9" (5'8" on one site) and 156 pounds. 4.37 in the

Laser, give it up already! Hansen chose Utah because the program was better
suited for him, read his comments. Hansen more than likely will play defense
for Utah after his mission.Your comment makes absolutely no sense.
Griff will be gone before Hansen begins his career at Utah. Hansen still has
his senior season of High School, then a two year mission. Robles will graduate
before Hansen joins the team.Playing a PAC-12 schedule must be more
appealing to some athletes than playing a schedule that includes mostly
@Laser "Now it makes sense why Hansen verballed with the utes. He was
promised that room would be made for him. Griff is the casualty of
Hansen." You do realize that Robles will be gone before Hansen
ever steps foot on the field at the U?
At 6-5/235, Griffin Robles has the physical tools to excel at LB. However,
Robles was the 12th-rated Pro-Style QB coming out of H.S in the 2007 recruiting
class. Are we really expecting QB-recruit Jon Hays, who's transferring in from
a Div. II school, and who has never even set foot on the Utah practice field
yet, to outperform Robles? And aren't we already fairly deep at the
LB position? Phil Steele listed Chaz Walker as a 2nd-team LB, Matt Martinez on
the 3rd-team, and Brian Blechen on the 4th. And in addition to those
outstanding athletes, Utah experienced LBs J.J. Williams, Trevor Reilly, and Boo
Anderson, Michigan State-transfer David Rolf, a 4-star LB in V.J. Fehoko, and 2
highly touted 3-star LBs in Jared Norris and Jacoby Hale.
Now it makes sense why Hansen verballed with the utes. He was promised that room
would be made for him. Griff is the casualty of Hansen.
FYI:Utes just got a solid verbal from (Wr) Delshawn McClellon. With
a 4.3 40 McClellon is described as the fastest football player west of the
Mississippi.Main reason to join the Utes? Norm Chow and the PAC12.
"I don't really understand this move. It just thins out an aleady thin
position for the Utes."Kewg claws,Yes, I know you
don't understand the move...neither does bronco and the entire bYu coaching
staff. To think a football player can switch from a position they played in
High school and be successful must be very foreign to you... Big reason why
Chase Hansen chose the U.
I'm sure we'll read a similar article in a couple of years replacing the name of
Griff Robles with Chase Hansen. I don't know enough about Robles to comment on
his move, but Hansen will be a great LB. I think that's where he was destined
to be whether he went North or South. I think he will be disappointed though,
because his primary reason for going North was a better opportunity to play QB.
Lol. You guys are funny.I really don't care the Utes can do whatever
they want with their players. They could move Jordan Wynn to linebacker for all
I care.It's just funny to see people get worked up over the smallest
comments. I used to be like that. Just chill guys, it's a game, not life.
@Cougar Claws' What do you care ? The way I see it Griff could turn
out like Paul Krueger, ( also a Utah County boy), that was a qb and is now a OLB
for the Ravens. Coach Whitt has always maintained that he wants the best
athletes on the gridiron as possible at any given time. I trust the former
COY and 3 time Assistant Coach of the Year to make the best possible decisions
for the team and the individual.
Man! Is it September yet?
Remember Devonte Christopher ?2007 Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year,
Nevada Prep Player of the Year and Las Vegas Review Journal Player of the
Year. He was a qb and could be called upon, yet has found a home as an
exciting WR and return man. Brian Blechen is also a duel threat qb-- in
fact was the 14th ranked dual threat qb in the nation as a senior in high
school, and is now a really hard hitting linebacker. I think that the
advantage of playing qb carries over onto the defensive side of the ball as
sometimes the read from the eyes of the qb helps tip them off as to where to
play the defense. I will always remember the look on Max Halls face when he
threw that interception to Krueger... priceless.
Well, my last comment got cut off by one of my little ones.But what
I meant to say was, if Wynn is healthy, there may be little need for a backup
QB. And if we do need some backup, Shreve seems quite capable. We'll see come
Well, Cougar Claws, perhaps it means that the position is not quite as thin as
you think. One can only guess, but I'd be willing to say that the coaches
wouldn't just throw Robles him into a new position if they needed him at QB. If
Wynn is healthy, which seems probable, he can play well. In fact, chances are,
the backup QB wil
Kitten claws,Only byU needs 3 to 4 guys to hold the clip board. 1 to
2 back ups is plenty. If the kid has some talent, get him on the field. I will be looking forward to seeing his progression like so many other
kids that came to play a position at the U and were moved by Kwitt and then
blossomed into stars. Go Griff and Go Utes!
I don't really understand this move. It just thins out an already thin position
for the Utes.
