Hopefully coach Whitt has put out a gag order on his tweeter .. let me see what
kind of talk he makes ON the field for a full year with his eyes open and
tweeter shut off. Rugby back Thretton is my dark horse for the best back
overall this year.
I love that pic of him going to the endzone on top of BYU's little corner.
I really like his skills. If we can keep him from Tweeting, he should be good to
Great talent. Hope he has a real breakout season.
Just a wonderful player from the moment he stepped on campus. My hope for
Devonte is that he grows in his maturity and is eventually elected a team
captain by his teammates. He truly has the ability to take over games. Go Utes!
DeVonte is just another example of a Utah player finding success at a position
other than the position he was recruited to play. Whitt and the U coaching staff
have an uncanny ability to put their players in a position to be succesful. Have
a good year DeVonte and GO UTES!
Putting football aside for a minute, Ute fans need to know another aspect of
DeVonte that will make them proud he is Ute:Local schools sometimes
ask the football team if a few players can visit, speak to the students &
provide some motivation and an example for working hard in school, etc.DeVonte has participated in these kind of school visits, and has not only done
well, but been extremely impressive in connecting with the students and
conveying the message that school is really the pathway to future success. He
is a very bright, very charismatic young man.Not just a credit to
his team, and the University of Utah overall, DeVonte has become a valuable part
of the broader community, and is certainly a credit to his native Las Vegas.
He says he wants to be the best receiver in the PAC. If he were a BYU receiver
who said that the Yners would be all over him for being arrogant. Good luck to
him though. There are some really good passing qb's in the PAC this year. The
Ute qb's will need to step it up big time to make this happen for him. Wynn has
said he plans to try playing well enough to be considered one of the top PAC
QB's. Maybe it will happen.
TJ:You just don't get it. Saying he "wants" to be the
best receiver in the Pac-12 is not a comment born of arrogance. Arrogance would
be classified as a player from an unranked, irrelevant, mid-major-ey school,
playing a WAC schedule, talking about winning a national championship.
He will have a big year this year! Lots of yards, TD's, catches, and Tweets
(rut row!)... I am very excited about the season as it is going to be fun fun
fun 'till yo daddy takes the T-bird away!GO UTES!!!!
If Jordan gets hurt... Devonte as the QB?Naw...
TJ just got burned.
@naval vetHere is what christopher said.""That's my goal going into this year to become one of the
best," Christopher said. "I think as any competitor that is the
attitude you have to take."Here is what Jake Heaps said.""We have high expectations for ourselves," said
quarterback Jake Heaps. "We're shooting for a national championship and a
chance to play for a BCS game. That's what we're going to play for. That's the
determination of our success. It's a big goal of ours."Hmmmm.
The only difference I see is that christopher appears to be focused on
individual and selfish goals whereas Heaps apparently wants great things for the
team and the school. One wants personal accolades, one wants team
success. As a matter of fact Jake Heaps has never uttered any sort
of personal desires for stats or status that I have ever read. Everything he
says is about the team and what the goals are for the team.I know
which one I would rather have.
