If I had the flu for 2 days, slept for 36 hours over the last 2 days, and felt a little sick still, I would be rusty too. Anyone would. Even St Jake. I think that it is a good thing that he got some rest, and let his arm rest. We know what we have with Wynn, and what he will give us. If healthy, he will be fine. He has gone over Chow's offense now on film, and studing it for about 8 months. He still has 13 days and the Montana St game to figure it out, and get the rust off. Even the scrimmage against our own D wont tell us all that much tomorrow when Wynn plays. Our D is better than most Pac 12 defenses, and he will only be about 36 hours removed from having the flu. Let's wait till the USC game, then see how Wynn plays.

I've been saying since the beginning of camp that Wynn's throw count wasn't that big of a deal, but if he is still on a 70 rep throw count next week and he is missing considerable reps with the ones, then that is when it starts to becomes a real issue.

USC is still 3 weeks away and that's enough time for the offense to develop continuity and rhythm, but I think the clock starts ticking for real next week and they will need Wynn to be healthy.

Even if Wynn is still missing reps next week, it still wont be panic button time, but that's when I'm going to START to worry.

Bummer that we're losing Jamal Smith. Hopefully we'll be able to use his newly vacated scholarship to sign a top Offensive Lineman. We'll need one.

In that photo he looks like a girl. Seriously, I was reading another article and just saw his head on the bottom of the page. I thought it was going to be a link to a story about Women's Soccer.

ooohhhhhhhhhh....so it's the "flu". I heard the reason he wasn't practicing was because he was wearing his church pants and he would be in trouble with his Mom if he got them dirty.

The problem is, you just don't know from game to game WHEN he will give it to you. And puhhhh-leeeeez, a fine-tuned, hale and hearty QB like Jake wouldn't be rusty after 2 days off. It was several months between spring practice and fall practice and Jake stepped in and performed like there'd been no break at all.

Utah's fortunes are resting on the rickety shoulder of Jordan Wynn and we all know what he will give you this year, a last place finish in the Pac 12.

One thing that Wynn can look forward too this season. He will get his teeth knocked strait!!!

@BigCougar. Do you often recommend your own comment?

Geez, does Wynn look like Joe Dirt or what?

It really doesn't matter why Wynn is missing practice, the problem is when Wynn is missing practice, his receivers are also missing time to practice with Wynn.

Chow's offense relies on precise time and being on the same page with reads. Unfortunately for Utah, there's no way to fine tune that without practice.

13 days?

Hardly.

The Utes have about 6 full practices and a couple of scrimmages left to get all of the kinks worked out before Montana State and most of that time will be spent putting in a game plan for the Bobcats.

It's almost gametime and from the looks of things, the Utes aren't even close to ready.

Wait that was Jordan Wynn - honestly I thought it was a photo of a girly Ute soccer or volleyball player. Ute fans you've got to be worried if he's your QB, your leader that is going to take you into battle in the mighty PAC 12. REALLY I feel sorry for you. The Cougs will literally take Utah apart in game 3. Let the fun begin!

Big Coug--

Ha ha. Yeah, I'm glad you have so much faith in Jake. Hopefully he isn't too hard by his sophomore slump. You might want to check out some of his recent stats at practice though. I heard he hasn't been too godly lately. Hopefully that doesn't hurt his Heisman campaign.

"You might want to check out some of his recent stats at practice though."

Just did; Heaps was 6/7 for 100 yards, including a 60-yard bomb to J.J today.

Utah fans can only dream that Wynn was having that kind of success.

After Saturday's scrimmage, Bronco will spend the next two weeks installing the game plan for Ole Miss.

Whit will still be nursing Wynn through practices and hoping that his sore shoulder will last through training camp, let alone the season.

Once again, the whiney Y fans are out like mosquitoes in the Bayou. You guys are hoot with especially the comment about "taking Utah apart in Game 3." That hasnt happened in over 20 years and that was when Utah was bad; on the other hand Utah has taken BYU apart 2 times in the last 7 years so I can see why you would want revenge; too bad it isn't going to happen as Utah's D is stud and won't let that happen. What Y reality challenged Y fans forget is the Wynn when he was healthy at times could lay one on the other team. Case in point, Iowa State last year, Utah scored 68 points on the Cyclones who later that season went to Austin and beat Texas. Also look what Wynn did to CAL in a bowl game. Last but not least, Wynn while injured and stinking it up something fierce against good teams still beat a Heaps led Cougar team.

Hoot?

Gotta love it.

No sir, no one questions whether Wynn can put up numbers.

It's good to see the kid back in practice. But after listening to Kyle's explanation about chronic soreness, I just hope the kid has it in him to make it through the season.

Kyles a good coach. Holding him out of reps in a new offense is something we'll just need to trust his judgement on. Some kids can pull it off. I just hope it's not more than chronic soreness now.

Why would anyone care about someone's elses hair issues? No need to get petty. It's been said. Let it go.

BYU fans,

The "girl in the picture" played only 5 minutes of good football, with an injured throwing shoulder, to take down your "reloaded" team last year. This year he might just need 6 minutes.

Wait for it....

Go Utes!!

Nice try, but Wynn had nothing to do with the key plays in Utah's win -- the lucky bounce on the punt, the blown fumble call, and, more important, the blocked FG.

Just as for most of spring and fall camp, Wynn was a spectator.

It's ridiculous that we as Ute fans even give these so called cougar fans the time of day. I am just as guilty. I say if we just ignore their desperate attempts to throw stones that the plague will go away and we can resume discussing the article rather than my dad can beat up your dad type of banter. Let's get ready for the season. Let's hope what Whit said in his statement about Wynns shoulder is true as well as the news about Brenner and Heimuli coming back on Monday. That would be huge. Go Utes!
