Is this for real? Now we are writing about some local radio interview about a sport 7 months away? I guess the ute homers like Mike will do anything to shift the focus off that thing they call a basketball team. At least in October when good ole Mike is writing about basketball to shift the focus on the train wreck of a football season, the article then will only be a month or so away from the topic....

The national letter of intent sigining day was just a few days ago. Norm Chow's move to Utah happened just within the past few weeks. Having an article that links to interviews that talk about new recruits and Norm Chow's plan for the offense seems like pretty recent and relevant news to me.

"ute homers like Mike"

Your talking about the same writer who wrote - Could Jake Heaps reach Jimmer status?

Max was right,

This is what happens when you get invited to a BCS conference.

Max, they can't talk about the Vegas Bowl, even though it was a record-setting blow-out loss to a MWC team.

Are they going to talk about how they went from 5th in the AP, to unranked?


No, realistically, they had to talk about what they are gonna do...

Personally, I want to know how they plan on getting out of the tailspin they crashed and burned in last season.

I may hit some of the interesting games next year.

Maybe Chow cantake over the basketball coaching job. I hear they need a coach.

Then listen to the interviews rather than smack talking.

I for one can' wait for Spring ball.

@Buster (aka Verita, aka Max)

Utah finished 10-3 just like your 2008 team the only difference we didn't print "Perfection" t-shirts for our 8-0 team like you did for your 0-0 team.

You got the money, talked about the conference, now it's going to be put up time for the players. That is going to be interesting to see how the "Eweties" handle getting drilled each week and finishing in the bottom half of their new league for the unforeseeable future. Talk about making mistakes, it's going to be interesting to see how long it is until they want out of that conference also!

Great article and interesting interviews. This is a great opportunity for Utah and it appears they understand the challenge and are trying to make the correct decisions to be very competitive in the PAC-12. Mr. Chow is very good addition to the staff as a senior mentor to the whole staff and great offensive coach.

Good to see the trolls (Max was right, Veritas Aequitas et al) are out in force showing us once again that they are indeed little brother (a mid major one at that). Please go away BYU trolls as I don't appreciate you being all over every and all Utah stories like white on rice. Hypocrites you are but please don't let that stop you on your way back to your nationally irrelevant mid major program. Can't you get through your heads that Utah is done with you; especially the so called Y fans which are delusional, insecure, jealous and from the content of their comments lately, desperate. I don't even care if you go away mad, just go away.

Rock o the Marne, I hate trolls too, so get after the ute trolls, too.

Two former BYU guys coaching the Utees! Oh the humorous irony of it all!

Yes, BYU has been a good feeder school for the BCS....what's your point?

Buster, Y so bitter?

Ann Arbor, MI

As far as a rival I'd put BYU and USU in the same group.... yes, they are within the same state but beyond that nothing more important.

What's more interesting is the rivalry we have with the USC's and UCLA's of the world.

As I've said many times before, it would be for the best if Utah would drop the tds from football (similar to what Penn St. did with Pitt) as there is nothing to gain and only things to lose.

Beating the tds will be almost meaningless as it relates to conference play - althoug it's been a fairly easy go ( 2 of 3 / 6 of 9).

tds will view the Utah game as it's sole identity; if they win they are worthy, if the lose they are failures.

Hey, I'd talk about football radio interviews as well. Have you seen Utah play bball lately.

"What's more interesting is the rivalry we have with the USC's and UCLA's of the world."

lol, get real hedgie

The Utes are nothing but filler for the PAC 12 to be able to schedule a championship game.

Trojan and Bruin fans think of SDSU as more of a "rival" than the Utes will ever be.

A couple of key things from these interviews First and formost...I too am impressed that Kyle spent an entire half hour speaking with Bob Seger. Im sure his insights to Runnin Against The Wind and what those real Hollywood Nights are like will inspire the team. But will things ever be Still The Same down on Mainstreet in SLC. Despite the imposed sanctions against...USC...which by the way haven't happened yet due to the appeal process. So when you look at the fact that USC was still able to pick up 25 of the 40-45 who signed LOI's and moved them to the Recruited side of the ledger...that the only thing Still the same Down on Mainstreet is that USC remains Like A Rock. And that's without even mentioning that 2of those recruits signed were 5's and the rest were pretty much all 4's in the first 100 on Rival's.com's top 250. I totally agree with Chow's final assessment. The fans need to lower their expectations in respect to the enormous difficulty of the schedule they are going to be facing the next season or two.
