Bummer to not have Wynn today and looks like the next couple days but I'm a huge believer that developing Hays by getting him extra reps will become a huge blessing in disguise as illustrated in Hays' drastic improvement already - nice to see Hays go 9-10 in yesterday's scrimmage. It would've been tough to make that improvement without Wynn's throw count.
Wynn will be fine throwing the ball and running the offense so I don't think he has to have all the reps. I just don't have complete confidence that he won't take a vicious sack in the USC game and go down with a re-injured shoulder or an entirely new injury.
If that happens, we need Hays to be ready to pull a Ratliff!

They held a meeting? That's all the reporting we get? What was it for? Why did they have it? Why did Whit say it was mostly positive? Somethings not right. Or else the reporters aren't will to pry to much and let us know what's really going on.

Mildred, sometimes it takes 4-5 posts for Max to be proven right. This time, just 2.

Coaches meeting with the team and you dream up a conspiracy theory? Get a grip.


@Ted H

I think Mildred is 100% serious, because she is a BYU fan. She always posts stuff like that.


And how many posts does it usually take to prove that Utah-haters who support Maxie's comments aren't that bright?

Ted H:

FYI Mildred in Fillmore is neither a Y fan or a U fan. He is Earnest T Bass 2.0 (kind of odd 'Ole Earnest disappears and Mildred suddenly shows up saying the same stuff). He does the same thing on BYU articles. He's just trying to get a reaction.

Just lookin out.

The "pitch count" that the coaches/trainers have Wynn on needs to be done away with. If the offense really is behind, there is no reason to keep the pitch count going if his arm really isn't sore as they have been saying. The offense is behind schedule. Kind of like BYU's offense was behind schedule last year when the quarterback reps were being split 50/50. How can the offense "click" if the starting QB is only there part time? If they are really going to catch up the offense to where they would like it, Wynn needs to be getting reps in this new system and with all the new players so they can gain a trust and familiarity with each other. Just saying.

Ok....get the "colds" out of the way...and get healthy/ready for the season.

Get well, Wynn!!!

Yes I'm well aware he(ernest) posts the same on BYU articles. Pretty lame. The sad part however is there are so many Utah fans who fail to see him for what he is. And they end up arguing with him, which is kind of ironic because they're arguing with one of their own. Need an example of those who have a tough time with reality: see dontMUSSwUtah above.

A poor attempt to paint BYU fans as foolish in reality ends up painting the red as less than brilliant.

Utah's O Lineman are dropping like flies. The starting QB only plays half the time while learning a new system. RB's who, while talented, are all very inexperienced.

Utah is going to struggle. There is no way around it. Whittingham is going to have to be the coach of the year to get Utah to 8 wins this year.


Ha ha ha. You're right teddy. Because i thought Milred was a BYU fan, i was definitely trying to "paint" a bad picture of BYU, but failed, thus making my school look bad. Touchy, aren't we?

Careful. You are going to get a "Max was right."

A little slow are we? It's mildred, not you, trying to paint byu fans as foolish. However, you do help to reverse the roles as you and so many others, who fail to realize that mildred is one of your own, end up arguing with her and show your incompetence. It's like you're arguing with the guy in the mirror.

Oh Man I remember Max Hall! He is my favorite BYU quarterback of all time in the whole world! He had six personal turn overs during a huge whoopin' on the hill. Final score 48-24 as Utah went undefeated on their way to a BCS bustin' bowl win. AGAIN! Thanks for the memories! I was there! By the way it was apple beer that I spilled and I felt really bad about the whole thing.

You sound like you're having a bad day. I was just trying to help you out dog. Riddlemethis can tell you that Ernest/Mildred is neither Utah nor BYU. I know I'm know I'm more educated now because of his wisdom. It does sound like some Utah fans have gotten the better of you in the past though. I'm sorry for this bud. Have a great day!!!

If the quote below reflects your thinking, you are a shallow person. If you went to BYU (or any college) they probably taught you in Sociology or History 101 that generalizations of an entire population are dangerous (see Hitler). I'd be careful about saying Max was right.

I hate to interupt the hate debate, but the real issue here is Wynn.

Can the Utes win without Wynn?

Sore shoulder, needs rest, sick, trainer's advice, whatever the reason, there's no substitute for live practice, and it's impossible for Wynn and Utah's offense to get up to speed with Wynn standing on the sidelines or not even attending practice.

Two weeks from today the Utes step onto the football for a real football game that they're not even close to being prepared for offensively.

Utah could be headed for a SW Baptist type embarrassment if they're not careful.

Saint George, UT

Looks like a slick way to cover Wynn's real status. Keeping his throws down and now in bed sick. I believe you will see Whit come out with some type of statement, "We are preparing in the event that Wynn does not get ready in time." Wynn will not last the first two games, let alone the thrid.

I sense concern on the part of the coaches and most of all the fans. I wish
Wynn the best but have my doubts.
