I'm glad to see that Jordan has Bulked up. Hopefully that plays a part in keeping him healthy this season. He definitely had the leader mentality last year, so it will be nice to see if that carries over to this year. I'm sure he'll command the team.

It sounds like our QB situation is MUCH better this time around, and thats a relief. Though I will wait until August 30th to make a decision on that, for sure. The coaches seem to have an eye on Hansen and Wilson, I hope one of them gets prepared well just in case...

Can't wait to see what they do this spring! And can wait even less for fall to come!!

GO UTES!!! 162 Days til Kick off!

Oh I'm so excited for the first Wynnie report and here they are already talking up the backups!

Is Jon Hays on the field, is he a backup this year or is last year's star 'under the bus'?

Remember all the posters that claim the U lied to Chase Hansen and wouldn't let him 'really' try to be a QB? Hayes will probably be the back up QB and one or both of the freshman will end up redshirting depending on injuries.

Nice to hear about Jordan and the freshmen but why no mention of Hays?

It's great to see Jordan Wynn excited and in good physical condition. I've always been a fan of Wynn and hope and expect for him to have a great season next fall!

The freshmen have lots of success to look forward to also. Not to mention a lot of returning players from last year's team.

Go Utes!!

Wynn will be great this year. I love the quarterback situation with Hansen and Wilson.

We will also be much stronger at running back this year with the addition of York. Can't wait to see Langli get some carries.

Go Utes! Go PAC 12! Go BCS! Go Conference of Champions!

"It sounds like our QB situation is MUCH better this time around, and thats a relief."

Really, TexasGirl?

Explain how anything is different at all from last year?

If Jon Hayes hasn't transferred, the author and his new Offensive Coordinator both owe him an apology.

The Utes offense will rise or fall w/ Wynn's health.

To answer few of the speculative comments here.

@USALover: the situation is different this year because e have a healthier, bulkier starting QB and two very good backups behind him, though they are freshmen.

@COUte, SammyG, and others: Hays isn't even on the depth chart right now and though he apparently got a few throws in yesterday, most went to Wynn, Wilson, and Hansen. So, as far as anyone can ell right now, he's the fourth QB.

Actually saw some video of yesterday's practice and was really impressed with the QB's. Wynn is definitely changed and is throwing better than I've ever seen him throw, Wilson is impressive, and Hansen is quite good as well, though definitely in third place right now. But you never know, it's only been one practice and that without pads.

Hopefully for the U Wynn can stay healthy...and he needs a haircut too.

I can't wait for football season to begin.

The Utes are looking to be a pretty good team this year. It's nice to see that Wynn has added some weight and strength - that was much needed and will hopefully help him stay healthy. This years team will have 4 QB's granted two of them are freshmen, but they are good athletes and probably better backup's than what we have had in the past.

The Utes defense is going to be good again. I'm so glad Star decided to come back for his senior year. That guy dominated last year and I'm sure will continue to be a game changer this year too.

Can't wait to see this team progress and what new guys can earn time on this team.

Go Utes!

Of course you couldn't wait for the first report to troll. Wynn will do just fine and it will be another epic beatdown in Sept against your boys in blue.

Also for those commenting on Wynn's hair. He's growing it in honor of his grandmother who died of cancer. He is donating it to Locks of Love.


"For the first time in almost two years I feel good," Wynn said. "It's a blessing and I'm excited to be out here."

Hmmm, when have I heard that before? Oh, that's right, about spring ball time every year. We'll see if it works this time...

Cedar Hills, UT

For all those bad mouthing the coaching staff and writer of the article for not mentioning John Hayes, you have no clue. Even John Hayes knows that he was a back up and is now the back up to the back up based on body type and ability. He came in and did an awesome job when Wynn went down but that was last year.

We move forward with more talent and skill at the QB position than ever before. Love it.

Star is going to do some damage for the D too. He is a beast that cannot be blocked even on a double team.

Go Utes!

Life is good.

Ogden, UT

That is exciting! I mean my QB son is almost 6-2 / 200 lbs and is Jr.in high school.

P.S. That's Roy Utah, not Ogden, in case anyone is interested

@ Otis Spurlock

"Go Utes! Go PAC 12! Go BCS! Go Conference of Champions!"

And your Utes' contribution to this "Conf. of Champion" was ......? Don't get me wrong, I'm with you about the Conference iteself. I'm a USC alumn, and I love the Pac 12 and the vision & leadership of Comm. Scott. Just trying to figure out what your Utes have brought to the conference table. I got tired of looking about football and basketball. I think the Women's Gymnastics team did well?

@so cal reader
The PAC12 gets credit for Utah's 2 BCS wins if that helps you out.

You're welcome.
