Lets set the record straight at the safety position. There is no competition
going on for that position contrary to what this paper reports. McGill and Rowe
from day one have received most of the reps. They have great days as reported in
this paper because no other safety's are given any reps. From day one they have
received the red carpet treatment while the other safety's are shoved to the
side to watch practice bored to tears.There is nothing equal or fair
about the competition at safety. It was a stacked deck long before fall camp
I hear in this paper how there is competition going on for the safety positions.
Its an open position and everyone has a shot. That is just not true. There is no
competition what so ever. McGill and Rowe are getting most of the reps and the
rest of the safeties are just standing around watching. Bored to tears. That has
been true from day one. Tell it like it is and please do not make us think that
Whit has not already made up his mind before camp ever started who will be the
safeties. If it was fair and open everyone would get equal reps to prove there
skills. Its pretty easy for McGill and Rowe to have great days every day if they
are getting the majority of the reps. Give us the truth not made up hype. I find it interesting that new players are given the royal treatment and
the players who have followed the rules and put their time in and been loyal to
Whits system are shoved to the side so that his latest and greatest freshman or
JC transfer can walk the red carpet come fall camp.
I noticed that Utah has questions at a couple of positions, ie running back,
defensive secondary... This however doesn't mean that they aren't going to be
strengths. Questions have answers. If Utah had real issues, we might be more
concerned. If Wynn gets injured, that could be an issue. Notice the
IF? Jon Hays might prove to be a better QB than Wynn, I doubt Shreve would be.
There would be an issue IF too many O-line players get injured. The
O-line is pretty strong, but not deep.I seriously doubt there will
be any issues at WR or RB. Both are very talented and deep.From what
I've heard, the safeties are going to be stellar. The corner's are still a
question for me. We'll see if they will prove themselves. @mussingaroundI'm sure if Heaps and Quezada went down locking
knees in practice, I'm sure the BYU staff would just laugh and think it was
funny, right?@trollhunter***Ute Trolls really think Wynn is a
good QB?? Laughable***You really can't call US trolls if we are on a
UTE article. The same can't be said for you and your friends.
Articuno,Sorry pal. If anything you're only making Max's comments
not strong enough. But again - I'm happy knowing that all things BYU
bother you. Thanks. Even though you hide it, I'm glad knowing your doctor has
warned you about eating too many free fries on your lunch break and spending too
much time getting bothered by all things BYU. Neither is good for your heart
bud. Try doing your heart a favor and taking a break from both.
@ Ted H.Rise and shout brother! We need to stick together. We as
cougar fans need to unite and cheer for our team! Stop trying to sidetrack with
false accuastions. We are all on the same team here.GO COUGARS!
Articuno,Max was right. And I'm glad that his rant no doubt
bothered you because you knew he was describing you. The most
hilarious part is you're getting your fellow yewties all riled up. It's funny
to see them go into a tizzy.
@Ted H.you have now twice called me out for being a Ute fan. How
dare you! How dare you! If you tried, you could not insult me further. I am a
cougar for life. I know the fight song, I know the stadium, I know the campus
and I have been to the Y on the mountain! Also, I enjoy a nice chicken ceaser
"Jake Heaps will prove you all wrong. BTW, why are so many Ute fans

how you will finish at .500, lol! "Obviously this is someone

Could be a very special year for this team. Energy seems the highest its ever
been. With 2 BCS games in recent years, the Pac 12 invite was just the boost we
needed. If the team sticks together and Jordan's arm stays strong and healthy we
could be battling for that elusive #1 spot. This year can't come soon enough.
Rose Bowl here we come! This will be a top 5 team with at most 2 losses by the
end of the season. Top notch coaching, players, and conference. See ya in
brave(but not brilliant) sir robin,You're arguing with one of your
own. Considering how often you post on these boards I would have expected you'd
remember your own kind.Articuno is the typical ute fan that Max Hall
so correctly described.You're essentially arguing with that guy who
is always in your mirror.Time to get a clue bud.
ArticunoBYU:"...why are so many Ute fans trolling this article?
This is a BYU article. Go read your own articles about how you will finish at
.500, lol!"The title of this article is "Utah Utes
football: Utes' theme for Day 5 was physicality". So how does that make
this a Y article? And which of us had the last team to finish the regular
season at .500?Classic cougar hypocrisy! "lol"!
ArticunoBYU ...Jake Heaps will prove you all wrong...hahaha.
Funny.Jake Heaps actually proved us wrong last year.Mid-way
through the 4th Q, when Wynn did not play well due to injury, we thought we
might have lost the game...But no we were wrong. We actually won even with a
injured QB. Go Utes!!!
RE: ArticunoBYU"has wynn ever even beaten a good team? He sure
hasn't ever beat BYU! LOL!"How quickly BYU fans forget that
Jordan Wynn (even with a major injury) beat BYU 17-16 last season. Talk about
selective amnesia...Now whether Wynn has even beaten a good team is
up for debate. Beating a 7-6 BYU team certainly doesn't qualify.
Jake Heaps will prove you all wrong. BTW, why are so many Ute fans trolling
this article? This is a BYU article. Go read your own articles about how you
will finish at .500, lol!
Utah fans are laughable.
IbcIn his minds eye, Bronco was picturing the kids on the hill when
he was discussing the level of education of fans.
BYU fans are funny.
Troll Hunter, given your screen name do you think it's a bit ironic that you are
a BYU fan trolling the Ute boards. You should probably get a new name. I have
a suggestion... just drop the Hunter and keep the Troll. To
Utah/Wynn naysayers, you are probably the same group of geniuses that said Brian
Johnson would never perform well after his injury. He proved you all wrong by
leading Utah to a 22-4 record over two season including Poinsettia and Sugar
bowl wins. However, we do appreciate your intense interest in the Utes, perhaps
you ought to just come out of the closet now and admit you can't control your
obsession with Utah football.
Wow, lot's of scared BYU fans on this one trying to paint a gloom and doom
picture so they feel better about their team's inferior position. Wynn is being
compared to the great QBs in the Conference of QBs and even Chow himself
compared Wynn to Ty Detmer - I think he has a pretty good viewpoint on each of
them, too.Of course the coaches are concerned about Wynn's health,
just goes to show how highly they think of him. You don't think Stanford is
worried about Luck's health?@ArticunoBYU, if Bronco really does
think Heaps is better than Luck, he's as delusional as the fan base.
"The funny thing is, Jake Heaps is better than Andrew Luck, Bronco has said
it himself"Bronco also when talking about BYU fans said:"For the people in the most visible positions: Head coach,
quarterback, corner, offensive tackle, something like that; the positions which
give up or could be criticized easily by a normal person, just by visibility,
not necessarily a great fan, in terms of education and understanding the broader
scheme of things, but if you're just to look out and say, where are the
mistakes, the level of criticism usually matches the level of education and the
fans, the people it comes from."Way to prove him right
"Ute Trolls really think Wynn is a good QB?? Laughable"No
Utah fans beleive he is a good QB, but you're to lame to know the difference,
since you are a troll you think everyone is a troll.
The funny thing is, Jake Heaps is better than Andrew Luck, Bronco has said it
himself. According to ESPN, the hesiman is Jake's to lose and Utah is dealing
with Wynnie! Ha! has wynn ever even beaten a good team? He sure hasn't ever
beat BYU! LOL!
Those players throwing punches wont get any blessings for being kind like we do
Ute Trolls really think Wynn is a good QB?? Laughable
Brave Sir Robin The real issue is how many times did Wynn throw in
practices 3, 4 and 5 when he saw "limited" action. If all of those
throws in practices 1 and 2 caused Wynn to miss most of practices 3, 4 and 5,
that's a red flag about just how "fully recovered" Wynn really is.btw, attacking BYU fans isn't going to solve your precarious QB
situation and burying your head in the sand isn't going to help, either.Utah's coaches had a panic attack when Wynn locked knees with a running
back and went down. That tells you all you need to know about just how worried
Utah's coaching staff is about Wynn's health.
Ufan, sorry but you're wrong - every day his exact number of throws has been
tracked on a whiteboard by the field and is reported by the media. On day 1 he
threw 79 times, day 2 he threw 93 times, etc. So rest assured - he is getting
reps.RE: anti-BCS"Delusion is running rampant on
the hill"....that's an ironic statement coming from a BYU fan (just voted
8th most delusional in the country by Sports Illustrated). I see you guys are
predicting another undefeated season and a national championship - how's that
worked out for you the past 25 Augusts you've been talking about it? I also see
that you guys are claiming independence is better than the PAC12, yet now your
coaches are telling recruits that you'll be in the Big12 in a couple of years.
If being independent is so great, why would your coaches be selling recruits on
the benefits of being in a conference?
anti - And you're commenting on these boards because....??? Ever
troll??? You care and are jealous and bitter."Wynn won't be
fully recovered from his surgery before the season starts."Everything I've read is that he is at 100%, but he is being brought along with
precuation. I trust KWhitt more than you."Denham won't be back
for at least another month."Doesn't he fall into the category
of somebody with no Div.1 experience? By your logic, which is faulty, this
doesn't deserve a separate comment by you. Sounds more like you're jealous and
hateful, brah."None of Utah's running backs have played a
single down in a live Div I game."And? They are a talented
bunch and I am confident that the RB that emerges will be successful. Other
Frosh or limited experience backs have had an impact in the past. Why not one
of these guys? RB is one of the easiest positions to transition from one level
to the next. Polk, UW RB, is a good example. He had a tremendous year last
year and he was a Freshman. It can and will be done.Now go eat some
Jordan Wynn's mustache has more "physicality" than he does.He will be in a sling by the end of the season.
Reading between the lines, I'd say Wynn's injury situation is much more dire
than Utah coaches are letting on and that Utah is furiously trying to get a
backup QB up to speed in case of the very real possibility that Wynn won't be
ready to start the season. I'd be very surprised if Wynn plays more than a
series or two against Montana State.
Wynn won't be fully recovered from his surgery before the season starts.Denham won't be back for at least another month.None of
Utah's backup quarterbacks have taken a single snap in a live Div I game.None of Utah's running backs have played a single down in a live Div I
game.Most of Utah's receivers have not played a single down in a
live Div I game.Utah's offensive has no depth.And Utah
is installing a completely new offensive scheme.Yet, Utah fans
believe that an offense that only scored 7, 3, 17, and 3 points in four of its
last five games, and lost almost all of its skill position players, is going to
be "great".Delusion is running rampant on the hill.
Brave Sir Robin"Limited to 100 throws per practice
session" doesn't necessarily mean Wynn is throwing 100 times per practice
-- the 100 throws is his max limit; there is no min limit, so we really don't
know if Wynn is making 0 throws or 10 throws or 100 throws per practice.Since we're not seeing any attempts/completions numbers per QB it's all
guesswork as far as fans knowing how Wynn is doing, except for general comments
from coaches that he's doing okay. Sugarcoating his progress now isn't going to
help the team come September.
Let's put the term "limited action" in the proper context, shall
we?Wynn is being limited to 100 throws per practice session. In the
entire 2010 season, Wynn only attempted 299 throws. That means every three
practices - even in "limited action" - Wynn is making an entire
season's worth of throws.I'd say that's plenty of reps to learn the
offense and get the timing down, wouldn't you?
Pratice hard and remain healthy are keys to a good pre-season.Go
"Quarterback Jordan Wynn saw limited action for precautionary
reasons."Regardless of whether Wynn sat out because of soreness
in his shoulder or simply because of precautionary reasons, the fact that he's
seeing limited action is a concern. Wynn can't learn Utah's offense and develop
the required timing with his receivers if he's not on the field practicing.
Quarterback Jordan Wynn saw limited action for precautionary reasons.Apparently the anti-Ute "fans", and supposed radio show, are
incorrect saying that Wynn hasn't thrown in the last 2 practices. They might not
know that the media is restricted to the last 30 minutes of practice. With Wynn
being on a throw count, the media probably doesn't see him throw because he is
already done with the throws.It sounds like the defense is going to
be awesome this year, even more so with 2 standout safeties. The linebacker core
sounds like it is just about as deep as the very talented D-Line. The offense should also be great. The new backup QB Hays seeing plenty of
action with Wynn being limited in throws. The RB's and WR's sound lightening
fast. 3 WR's are 4.4 or under on the 40. If Denham can comes back soon, then the
receiving core will give any team serious problems. This is going to
be an exciting year to watch. Go Utes!!!
