@wedgieThis next football season is going to be a very tough one for
you. It is alternately going to be a very fun one for me. LOL
Doman will hand Chow a lesson in modern football. Chow is so yesterday.
Hedgehog.You can read, and re-read my post above, and you will not
see me mention BYU at all. I was not comparing the two teams. But
if you want a debate, you got it. Utah has a very favorable
schedule their first year in the PAC. But besides getting dominated by USC.
You can expect losses from BYU, Arizona, ASU. With possible losses to UW, Cal,
UCLA, and OSU. All are teams with better talent than Utah. More experienced
players in skilled positions, and better coaching. The PAC is not the best
conference in the country, but top to bottom they are probably the most balanced
and competitive. Utah is in for a tough adjustment.What makes you
think that Utah will do better than 7-5 next season? You have no way to measure
yourself against any PAC team. Every decent opponent Utah faced last year
resulted in massacres. You are returning a QB that you and I and everyone
else in the Nation knows is a joke, no RB's, one WR, 3 lineman? Please.8-4 is very optimistic and realistic. Maybe even generous
considering what Chow has to work with.
Jeffy.I'm sure you only focus on what the Utes don't have as opposed
to the competition.You see, unlike the Non AQ "indy"
Kewgars, Utah doesn't need to win ever game to get to the conference
championship. Infact the game against the tds is simply a throw away game for
the Utes.Outside of USC ( who can't compete in the title game) who
is Utah going to get dominated by?And before you rattle of teams...
do a bit of research.
JEFFE,Norm has already addressed the Wynn situation and he really
down plays it. It just may be the company line but Chow says Wynn will be at
every QB meeting and standing next to him during spring ball. Wynn will take
down everyting mentally according to Chow and Chow thinks Wynn is a smart guy.
In the fall Wynn will put in the physical part.
Honestly, Norm Chow will be a huge lift for the Utah football program going into
the PAC. But he will not be successful as long as Jordan Wynn is the
starting QB. Chow's past teams have only been successful when anchored by a
great QB, McMahon, Young, Detmer, Sarkisian, Palmer, Leinart, and Wynn????
not. Wynn wont even be able to practice until fall camp. With all
the skill positions with very little experience, next year will be a very rough
premier season in the PAC. I give it 3-4 years before Utah is a
contender for the PAC Championship. One thing is for sure, you are
very fortunate to have Norm Chow on your side.
Alabama sang a song called, "Give Me One More Shot". Here are some
new lyrics for Norm Chow:So give me one more shot I'll give it all
I've gotLet me open my eyes to a new sunrise I prayGive me the Utah
team I'll learn to scheme and schemeWell I'm satisfied just being alive
give me one more playWell I could complain about UCLA or the
recruiting we're doing todayGo on and on about things that are wrong from
Tennessee to L.A.Well that's just not my nature to sit around feeling
sadWe're only here for awhile so why not smile hey coaching ain't all that
badSo give me one more shot I'll give it all I've gotLet me
open my eyes to a new sunrise I prayGive me the Utah team I'll learn to
scheme and schemeWell I'm satisfied just being alive give me one more play
How very original of you DC. Oh wait, never mind, you heard that somewhere and
decided to say it, too. I could say, "Even in an article about the Utes,
BYU fans can't resist commenting. Obsessed much?" It goes both ways my
No mention of Doman?No... that's impossible.
Even in an article about the Utes, Ute fans can't resist talking about BYU.
Obsess much? That, right there, is the little brother syndrome played out
Chow was great in his day - but he looks tired.
Uteology,Like the BYU football recruiting class, Doman is not
rated.On another note, It would be nice if the Dn's would report on
the Utes newest player a 6'8 OT out of Cali... reports say he could find playing
time NEXT YEAR. Also, rumors are flying that Cullen is academically out ? Any
word - Dirk?
"New coordinators who will have a major impact on the 2011 season" -
SIWith all that tradition I am shocked to see that Doman didn't make
