Ominous news...

Too bad we can't tank the season for the Luck sweepstakes.

Good luck to Hays, and all the Utes in this game.

It's fun to talk smack, but playing with the chips stacked against ya, everyone should pull for the underdog!

At least now I feel like I have something to look forward to. Not that I didn't like Wynn, but I don't think he is ever going to become a huge star. Who knows right now with Hays. He may be bad, but he may turn out great. I'm excited to see (and of course I'm hoping for the latter).

Hays will not be a star. He has no star qualities - no big arm, no accuracy, no speed, no quickness. He probably has average mental fortitude. His one strength is porbably his heart. He will give it his all, unlike Hypes.

This is a MAJOR mess and Ute fans, myself included, should be concerned. Very concerned. To think that things will go on without a noticeable difference is naive. It is also a MAJOR recruiting error and will be a painful process to witness. It's disappointing that it has happened during a year when so much ground could have been made. Instead, Utah will likely be forgotten just like BYU already is.


I disagree, Duckhunter Hunter. I think we are going to witness a no quit spirit on the Utah football team and they will find success in a strengthened character and playing as a team. Hays has the tools to be successful but needs protection from the line. His receivers are outstanding and will make plays. Defense has to continue to play as though everything depends on them.

I think we are going to be pleasantly surprised.

So let me get this straight... there was only school interested in Jon Hays after his Div II school, Nebraska-Omaha, dropped their football program? You guessed it! THE Pac12 frontrunner...(drum roll, please) the Runnin' Ute football program!

Great get, you guys. Great get. (better get Shreve ready, Vontaze is looking to hurt someone)

This game on Saturday should be really fun to watch.
