Can't wait to see the three running backs in action. I'd love to see Langi as the starter with the other two rotating as back ups to give him a breather.

Based on the season ticker renewal percentage, a lot of other fans are looking forward to seeing them in action as well.

Looks like the utes are going to have a real stud at RB.

There's no debate in my mind after watching spring. Harvey Langi will be the starting RB this year at the U. White can be a good change-of-pace back, and Palamo can spell Langi and work on goalline.

Langi is clearly the most complete back of the group, and was the best offensive player on the field for the spring game.

Can't wait to see him develop the next 4 years.

Pac 12 player of the year quality player no doubt.

I renewed my 12 reserved seats (6 home games, 2 sets) for $950.00. That is $79.17 per ticket per game. I hope the University can sock some money away so that a bigger stadium can be built.

I'm sure glad I got my tickets! This season is going to be awesome.

I think Palamo is going to surprise a lot of people. He has got some real powerful legs and that Rugby background shows he can take a hit and still carry 2-3 guys for extra yards. All in all a good backfield made even better with Coach Norm as OC.

Let's hope Harvey is nothing like Reggie Bush- off the field.

Not a Ute fan, but saw Langi a few times in HS. If he can keep things in order off the field, he will be a total stud. He can flat out play. Run, block catch.

Langi is tough as nails, he will do well if he can get some good blocking. I'm excited to see Palamo get some action. I've watched some of his rugby videos and man does he have some kick. Knowing Kwhitt, this team will be prepared come opening kickoff. This offense will mesh with Wynn a lot better than a spread offense in my opinion. If the offense clicks, look for the Utes to compete for the south division immediately.

Anything anyone on these boards say about the upcoming season is pure speculation. Only time will tell, but for now it's fun to dissect the facts.

I sure wish he had headed south...

"Langi is tough as nails,..." until he meets USC and BYU's LB corp...he'll not gain more than 30 yards on Sept. 17th...mark my words...

Langi looks good especially for a freshman. I too am excited to see Palamo also. There is some real potential there and he is only a sophmore. White has some good experience and comes in with impressive numbers from the JC areas. I suspect there will be some kinks to work out but this is a great group considering there transition to a different offense.

Kearns, UT


Correction. You're actually thinking of BYU's ground attack last year at RES. 26 carries, 66 yards. 2.5 YPC.

And it won't be any better next time around. Mark my words...

You do realize that outside of Montana State and Colorado - BYU will be the worst backfield the Utes will face next fall.

You do know this..right?

You do realize that Utah's defense will have more than the Utes can handle just trying to control BYU's receivers?

Snack PAC,

Again, maybe the third worst wr's the Utes will face next year.

This game means the same as Montana State to the Utes.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Keep dreaming Ute-fans, my cougs will embarrass your Utes on your only National TV appearance this fall. We'll all be laughing when Montana State beats your overrated Utes on your home field, and USC welcomes you to the PAC10.2 with a torching. BYU will then rush for more than 150 yards (or more) on your boys...good luck reaching 6-6 record this fall!

Salt Lake City, UT

Utah's running backs will live or die based on the ofensive line play.

About the season tick price increases. Utah had to do it in an attempt to key up with the other schools. No TV contract money in 2011, only half in 2012 and so on really puts the Ute budget far behind the other schools. Utah needs huge numbers in football, basketball and the red rocks, their three main cash cows.

It is very important for Utes fans to support the teams, win, lose or draw.

People are funny. No matter what an article is, whether a BYU or Utah article, it turns into the back and forth. I'm a Y fan and say to both sides, "Grow up."
