    UteFaninTx,

    ***Can't wait to watch 5'9" Lacy try to keep the football out of 6'4" Hoffman's or 6'3" Apo's hands. Speed is one thing, but a 6 or 7 inch height advantage almost seems unfair. I can see the headline already - U Got Apoed!***

    Don't worry. If the height difference becomes an issue, Whitt can just sub in Mo Lee. He's about 6'2 and just about as fast as the rest of the DB's.

    Can't wait to watch 5'9" Lacy try to keep the football out of 6'4" Hoffman's or 6'3" Apo's hands. Speed is one thing, but a 6 or 7 inch height advantage almost seems unfair. I can see the headline already - U Got Apoed!

    I'll also be watching how Blechen's move works out. Whit's pretty good at putting people in the right position, but it's not often that an All America candidate gets moved. I hope it works out for him. He's a talented kid.

    Good luck Utes, except of September 17.

    Have to congratulate the young men who have surfaced after a trying period of internal competition, great job, and the reward will be a ton of playing time in the challenging days ahead....

    And again, what a job by Coach Whitt & his coaching staff to reset the jigsaw puzzle of talent. Magicians!

    And there's Extra Credit, too --- Hopefully this continuing demonstration of coaching skill is an inspiration to the potential recruits watching Utah's progress and considering a commitment to the University.

    Wouldn't see it as out of the ordinary at all if Justin Thomas winds up a 6'3" 240-pound linebacker by the time he's had four years in the program.... :)

    Crystal ball says there is a serious episode of Football Frenzy on the horizon!
