Duckhunter, bitter? No, bitter would be refusal to be happy for a kid somebody
professes to have coached their entire life when they make a decision to attend
school somewhere the other person doesn't like.
@stgSounds like you're bitter about something. Hansen's
injury is not a secret as I have now told you multiple times. Just because you
didn't know about it doesn't mean most of the rest of the state
didn't. Then of course there is the small fact that it is just another
reason he won't eventually be a qb at utah and utah's coaches know
that. In my opinion the unethical thing is telling a kid he can have a shot at
something when they know he really won't play that spot eventually.
I never said I hadn't heard about anything. I hear about and see a lot of
things from a lot of teams and schools, but as an ethical person, professional
and former coach, I don't exploit personal relationships with athletes to
show off how much more I know than someone else.
@stgI'm not the media. Besides it is well known, publicly. Just
because you haven't heard about it doesn't mean anything.
Duckhunter, it's not a comeback, it's simple ethics. Regardless of
whether "pretty much everybody" already knows about it, what right do
you have to post it publicly? It's nothing against you, personally, either,
I would call out anybody who would so blatantly abuse a personal relationship to
disclose private information. For example, take my thoughts on the Glen Dean
incident earlier this year:"'Out of respect for privacy,
Glen and his family have asked university officials not to release any
additional information on his condition, prognosis or surgical procedure.On Thursday, a source close to the situation said Dean is doing well by all
indications and is in good spirits. His condition was described as
"non-cancerous" and "non-life threatening.''Glad to hear he's ok, but a great example of exactly what I hate about
the media. "Glen and his family didn't want to let us know any
information, but after some careful prodding, we got around that!"
@stgReally? That is your comeback? It is more than common knowledge
to pretty much everyone down here, just because a bunch of blind utah
"fans" haven't heard about it doesn't mean it isn't well
known. Now you know and now you have another excuse when he is moved.
Duckhunter: "on top of that he has a torn labrum in his throwing arm and has
had it for the last couple of years."You realize it is entirely
unethical and senseless to publicly throw out people's medical information
that hasn't been press released, right? I'm sure you had a perfectly
good reason to, though.
@Duckhunter"Chase made his choice and he did it based on some
promises made to him."***********Maybe those promises were
that he would play a major college schedule and not a WAC/CUSA schedule...
@MiPYou accidently fell into one correct thing there, it does bother
me that he chose utah. But you are incorrect about most of the rest of it. I do
know for a fact BYU told him he would not be a QB for them and I do know for a
fact utah told him he could try to play qb for them. Those are facts and they
have actually been reported in the papers so even slow and dim utah
"fans" should be able to read and comprehend them. As far as
my thoughts on him ultimately being a qb are concerned, well no I do not think
he has a strong enough arm but on top of that he has a torn labrum in his
throwing arm and has had it for the last couple of years. Ultimately he will
play defense and ultimately utah will be better off for having him as a
defender.Go ahead and think whatever you want to think, Chase made
his choice and he did it based on some promises made to him. We'll see how
it all ends up.
Nice to see the kids transition to college life. Yoga helps. Avoid Geology 113
as a frosh at all costs.====Duckhunter, Trouble
is, your comments on this matter have been stated like facts, not opinion or
borderline conjecture, as they trult are. Those that question your
previous posts on this matter simply don't believe you can read Coach
Whit's thoughts on this matter, nor do we believe you were in attendence at
Chase's home when the recruiters stopped in, yet you make your statements
with such conviction, that it would appear that you are indeed privy to
information that elude us regular folk. Again, it is what you believe happened
that allows to to say that it actaully happened.But the bottom line
is it doesn't matter.I the end, I think it has bothered you
that he chose the U over the Y. But then again, probably just conjecture on my
part, which is why I used the word "think."
@naval linthansen will not play qb for utah. He isn't good
enough even for the low expectations of a utah qb. His arm is to weak. After his
mission he will play defense.But you and co ute are both wrong about
what I said by the way. He went to utah specifically because they told him he
would have an opportunity to try and be a qb whereas BYU told him he would not
be a qb for them, that is what I said. I also said he would wind up playing
defense at utah and I stand by that. The utah coaches have known that all along,
they just said what they thought they had to say to get him there. Once he is
there, and they give him his shot, they will move him.
Correct you are CO Ute. I wonder where that Indy-WACey "fan" Duckhunter
is now? I'm sure he's desperately working, as we speak, to invent
something to explain away this disturbing turn of events. There MUST be SOME
way to spin this! Isn't there?
I seem to remember comments from a certain poster that claimed the U lied to
Hansen and would never "really" give him a shot at QB. He may or may
not ever play a down at quarterback for the Utes but he is certainly getting a
opportunity to earn a spot at that position.
Taking classes like bowling and yoga? In other words getting the tough stuff
out of the way first? Just kidding guys, welcome to the team. Great
things ahead for the Utes.
@Real BassDid you actually read the article to see why he is taking
yoga and bowling this semester, or are your blue glasses so thick that
you're just digging for something that you think you can make fun of so you
Yoga and bowling? Typical BCS courses.
Watched a little bit of practice today. The two frosh definitely have a ways to
go in blitz recognition and such, but they looked good. Jordan's throws
looked just as solid, possibly more, than Poinsettia Bowl form. I can't see
it as anything but a positive for these guys to finish high school early and get
a jump start on a degree, on the depth chart, and in an elite level strength and
conditioning program. Good choice.
Was there a non BSC school that thought Chase would play for them?? Chris B. Be
nice to our little sisters!!
Welcome Chase! Great choice of school. You'll love the BCS!
