I think people were a little to fast to judge Hays, he was thrown into a
terrible situation for any quarterback and now the game is slowing down, he is
masking better decisions. We should have a great chance of finishing the regular
season a 8-4.
as long as he can stretch the field with a few big passes a game the Utes will
be ok. my guess is 2-1 in there last 3 games. also hays should have had 3 td
passes, chistopher dropped a great pass in the end zone on the second possession
that turned into a field goal. GO UTES!
Nice game! Keep it up and...Go Utes!
He definitely seemed calmer, stepping up into a collapsing pocket to make the
play, and he was also willing to throw one away rather than take the sack
Hays has only "improved" because he's playing the bottom-dwellers of
the conference.Arizona has the 112th worst passing defense and the
106th worst total defense in the county.
SportsFanBefore you get too carried away, you might consider a few
additional facts like Arizona's schedule, which has included projected BCS #2
ranked Oklahoma State with the #2 ranked pass offense and Stanford BCS #3 with
Andrew Luck projected #1 in NFL draft and USC #19 pass offense with Matt
Barkley, another projected first rounder.I think you're confusing
Hays with Heaps.
Hey sports fan, it is obvious that you are bitter about how the utes are doing.
Just enjoy the Idaho game next week where your team will show their improvement
against a cellar dwellar WAC team none-the-less. Hays used to be a turnover
machine. He has improved, no doubt.
Good job hays! Lead Utah to a 9-4 season!
Not everyone improves with experience, so congrads to Hays for hanging in there
and working hard to get better.
This is good to see. Our chances of seeing the Utes play in a bowl game just
got a lot better. Hays is a good athlete who is starting to show more poise and
understanding of the offense. They could still lose a game or two, but should
finish with some momentum going into the offseason and some lessons learned.
Pretty low bar for "incredible".
Incredible game plan by Coach Chow! Well done!
@DuckhunterThat was the praise from his teammate, John White IV. Big
deal.At least Hays wasn't talking about his own
"incredible" potential, like one certain over-hyped player from BYU.
I love that they are using Asiata more. That guy is a freight train. Not just
when he gets the ball, but when he blocks as well. Congrats Hays, what an
awesome performance you had. Take advantage of this blessing that you ended up
at the U, and let's finish the season strong. Go Utes!!
I give a great amount of credit for Hays' improvement over a short period of
time to the coaching of Norm Chow. Chow has created an offense where Hays can
be successful and get comfortable. If Chow can do this for Hays think what Chow
will do with Travis Wilson, the 6'6" 210 lb kid from California who has
the build of Joe Flacco (when he adds a little more weight). Wilson arrives in
town in January. It should be very interesting when spring football arrives.
Utah will finish this season 8-4 and end up in either the Alamo, Holiday or Sun
Nice to have the Duck back following his 54-10 mourning period. He is of course
the master of "low-bar" settings for "incredible" after
spending the last two years hyping Heaps and his "NFL" arm. If anybody
would like a recipe book for preparing and eating crow, be sure and talk to the
fenderNo doubt that Hays had his best game yet but anybody watching
the game could see that Arizona's D is pathetic. Letting Wr's get wide open
behind you multiple times is not the sign of a good defense no matter who they
play or have played. The tackling was pathetic. And when you have first and goal
inside the 5 only bad teams throw an out pass to the wide side of the end zone.
Unless you are Stanford and have Luck.
@fenderI've never made any claims about Heaps. I always take a wait
and see approach with all unproven players. I guess you just wanted to post
something so you made something up. Brilliant.LOL!
I thought Hays had some potential after the first half of the ASU game. Everyone
seems to forget that Utah was up 14-10 in the 3rd quarter. I thought that Cal
game would have been different. I'm glad to see that he is playing with
confidence. He's a good kid to fight through adversity and come out on top.Saturday is going to be a great game day! Can't wait for Utah to put a
beat down on the Bruins.GO UTES!
Three cheers for Norm Chow!!! He's silencing his critics by letting his team's
play do the talking. I agree with Dutchman, Chow deserves more than just a
little credit for the improvement in the offense.
@DuckhunterGreat to hear from you bro. You specifically boasted
about Heaps' NFL arm strength in a post directed at me last season after I had
said Heaps was physically weak. Interesting that you also accused me at that
time of "just making up stuff". You may recall I then referred you to
the scouting report (believe it was Rivals) for Heaps stating he needed to work
on arm strength.
@fenderAnyone that has seen Heaps throw a ball knows he has superior
arm strength but that doesn't make a guy a great qb. Heaps struggles to throw
accurately and with any touch. I've never made any claims about Heaps and the
NFL, Heaps being great or a Heisman hopeful, NCAA All American, or anything
else. Any claim by you that I ever have said anything about Heaps and the NFL is
definately you making something up. Also it is funny you think I
have gone anywhere when all of the other utah "fans" are whining about
me being around to much.LOL!

He did much better. He'll never take over a game, but if he continues to manage
the game within his ability level, the Utes will be okay.
@duddman54What's your point?
