Uteanymous,Just to clarify for you and everyone else who keeps
talking about how we no D1 experience at Running back. Vakapuna not
only has D1 experience and has run the ball but even scored a couple of D1
rushing touchdowns. The U has 4 or 5 starter calliber runners and
will be just fine in that area for years to come.
Classless Ute FanWhat makes you so sure Utah's running backs are
great?Not a single Utah running has ever played a single down of D1
football.And, you're really drinking the red koolaid if you think
Jon Hays has been looking good in practice. He was a disaster in Utah's first
"Quarterback Jordan Wynn didn't participate in the drill after reaching his
throw count of 70 earlier in practice. He told reporters that his arm continues
to feel good."hmmmSo Jordan's throw count has been
reduced from 100 to 70 and he's only practicing 2 out of every three days? But
his arm continues to "feel good"?
NCY,***Not a lot of good news coming from camp. Wynn is nursing a
shoulder, no running game, no back up qb, one bad sack away from a disaster
year.***Apparently, you aren't very familiar with the Utes. Utah has
John White and Tauni Vakapuna. They are great running backs while Palamo and
Langi are developing. Jon Hays is looking to be a good back up. If
any QB gets a serious injury, it is bad for their team. But Utah won't have a
disaster year. The biggest issue, you didn't even mention, the depth
at O-Line. The 1's are great, but the back ups are still learning.
This is just the camp blues. all the teams are going through it. Be glad
you're not ASU, they're hurting really bad. My Huskies just lost Quinton
Richardson ( starting Cornerback)to a high ankle sprain a Alameda Ta'amu
(DT)broke a bone in his hand. We have very little depth at Defensive Tackle.
Anyway, hope you'll have some guys step up.
VIP,Palelei won't make it this year and he only has one more year at
a D1 school. He'd have 2 years if he went D2.
Not a lot of good news coming from camp. Wynn is nursing a shoulder, no running
game, no back up qb, one bad sack away from a disaster year.
Wait, does that mean Damian Payne is gone from the team for good? If so, wow
that really sucks!Also, is this news about Po'u Palelei mean this
year is totally out for him being able to qualify? Or is this news just being
re-reported, since it's already been reported many times that he hasn't YET
Re: the kicking game - I sure hope Whit's found someone who can put a kickoff
into the end zone on a consistent basis. For someone who preaches field
position as much as KWhit does, I was shocked last year to see him allow the
same kid continue to kick off, knowing it would never get inside the 10.And I'm kinda worried about the fragility of our QB situation -
hopefully Coach Chow can attract some stronger candidates for that position next
year.Can't wait till Sept 1st - go Utes!!
No Kemoeatu? No Palelei? This is bad news. What looked to be a major strength
along our OL has been made even worse due to all those injuries. We've got 4
weeks to build that line, then USC.GO UTES!
