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.
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
@sir robinThey won't lose a conference game.@kamuteDream 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!
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
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 LoganBYU 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 roadCalifornia will be a close win at home. Washington State will be a close win at homeWashington will be a tough
loss on the roadArizona 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.
@DuckhunterAnd what do you expect BYU's conference record to
Look for a worse record than last years sub .500 conference record.
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.
Keith McGill at corner? That is one big corner, but can't argure with the
Utes success at picking and coaching up their corners.
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.
I'm not one to want to skip Spring and Summer ... but if there was ever a
year ...Can't wait for Utah football!
