I'm not one to want to skip Spring and Summer ... but if there was ever a year ...
Can't wait for Utah football!

Harvey Langi still has that potential to be a good back and I do not believe he can be judged solely off of his true freshman year. It is too early in his career to pass judgement on him. Problem is, with John White and incoming JC transfer Kelvin York, Langi may not see that much playing time again this year. He may end up redshirting sometime in the near future.

Junior Salt is not coming in as an OL. He is being brought in to play DT. Of course that can change to fit the needs of the team, but combining him with Star should be very interesting and imposing to opposing teams OL's. I look forward to seeing these two reek havoc on opposing teams.

Keith McGill at corner? That is one big corner, but can't argure with the Utes success at picking and coaching up their corners.

umanami, what's your insider information on Salt that makes you so sure? Signing day press release announced him as an OL, and from what I understand, that's where he played the most in JC. From what I've seen and heard, he seems like he'd be a great DL, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him on OL, and with lack of experience and depth there compared to defense, kind of expect that's where he'll be.

Look for a worse record than last years sub .500 conference record.

And what do you expect BYU's conference record to be?

I am excited about this years team. I do this every spring. My guesses were correct except for the Colorado loss.

Northern Arizona is an easy win.
Utah State is a tough win in Logan
BYU is an easy win at home.
Arizona State will be a tough win on the road.
USC will be a close loss at home.
UCLA will be a close win on the road.
Oregon State will be a close loss on the road
California will be a close win at home.
Washington State will be a close win at home
Washington will be a tough loss on the road
Arizona will be the easiest win next to BYU.
Colorado will be a revenge game and we will not lose.

Utah ends up 9-3 and will get the nod for the Holiday Bowl as USC will play in the PAC 12 Championship game against Oregon and eventually for the NC.

I live in Provo but still am an avid UTAH Fan, I have tickets for next season and cant wait for the high caliber teams we play. On the flip side I have friends that go to BYU who dont even want all sports passes this year for BYU'S games, just shows how much a solid conference helps, I wouldnt want to watch games against the WAC all year long either

@sir robin

They won't lose a conference game.

@kamute

Dream on. They now have an offensive coordinator that wasn't even a good qb coach. The offense might even be worse than last years and that would be an accomlishment.

LOL!

If i remember correctly, last year duckhunter and others made the bold prediction that there would be a blowout in provo. Can't argue that he wasn't spot on with that one. Could we have the next Nostradamus on our hands?

I am also very excited for the season.

Two very big questions for me are:

Will Utah again be dead last in conference in third down conversions?

Will Utah again be dead last in the conference in first downs?

Any improvement there will validate Johnson’s promotion.
