Star is a beast. It's easy to be happy he chose to come back for senior year. I hope he can stay healthy and be a top level NFL pick next year.

Star will be double and triple teamed in the PAC 12 this year. Utah's success on defense will be on the Star's massive shoulders and the rest of the D-Line that needs to step up and take advantage of all the attention Star will get at the line of scrimmage. The inexperienced linebackers will also have to plug up the leftover holes.

I have faith in Whitt, Sitake, and Star to set the foundation for a defense that will quickly develop into one that will get the Utes atop the PAC 12 South.

Hey hedgehog, naval vet, and duckhunter, who cares if Gurney went to Utah or not. What major dish on each other can you really serve if Gurney graduated in Poland or anywhere else?

If Gurney went to Utah and is a BYU fan and is employed by the Desnews, then good for him I guess. I have no bad blood with the guy. He hasn't insulted anybody that I know of. The comments here on this forum contain more insults in one hour than Gurney would produce in a lifetime.

Spin it any way you want, it is nice to have some pre-season recognition for the Utes. Star is going to get double and triple teamed this year and JWIV will be sharing the ball with two other RB's - the numbers might not be a big as last year but the talent speaks for itself.

"...who cares if Gurney went to Utah or not."

Duckhunter does. Obviously. That's why he went entirely off-topic in a frantic and emotional attempt to posture himself -- due to his Indy-WACey allegiance -- as somehow having some sort of "one-up" on the Pac-12 Utes. Ducky also likes to call out others as "liars", but can never back up any of his desperate claims. I know it embarrasses him when he gets called out on these threads. It just satisfies my morbid curiosity to see if he'll "run away" as he is oft known to do -- sometimes even running all the way to Tulsa [*snicker*] for effect -- or if he'll just respond with his typical "I just know" or "research it yourself", which is just his tacit admission that he has nothing, and that he frantically and emotionally made it up.

Looks like THIS time, he chose to run away.

All BYU/Utah fans know that another epic beat-down will occur on 9-15-12 at RES. Utah will embarrass BYU AGAIN. Then, Dr. Hill will not schedule BYU for a few years. I'm glad we don't need to deal with BYU anymore! Colorado is the Ute's rival nowadays. Gooooooooooo Utes!

@naval vet

Dnews doesn't allow links. I told you where you can find it. Another place to find it was in the signing day conversation threads. Some utah "fan" like yourself asked him that question and he answered it. I'll tell you what I love, I love how obsessed you are with me. It is extremely satisfying to know you care so deeply about the things I write. Speaking about running away I invited you out to Highland this fall for one of my football teams games. You know it is an opportunity to meet the people that live around here that I am friends with and associate with. You have not made a reply and I doubt that you will. LOL!

@gdog

I was actually responding to this post of stg's on the "Blue Chip Signings" Article.

Duckhunter, obviously Y-homer Gurney is going to remember every single one of these guys that signed with BYU, and forget half of the ones that went elsewhere"

I'm not sure why it posted to this article as I had never even read this article until I got the email reply from the dnews that I had posted to it. I suppose I could have clicked on it by accident instead of the other one when I went to post but I doubt it. Technical srew up probably but no big deal as this has been fun.

Now for you and on topic for the article, I agree Star is a stud, might be the best dlineman in the country and will no doubt deserve whatever honors he receives.

@navl vet, hedgehog and other utah "fans"

So I found Brandon Gurney's profile on facebook. It say's right on it "Studied at University of utah". It does not say he graduated from utah only that he "studied" there. So I guess I was wrong that he "is a utah graduate" since it doesn't appear he graduated, just attended. Regardless that makes him a ute, he didn't attend BYU although as I hypothesized earlier he may very well be one of the thousands who attended utah but are BYU fans. LOL!

I definitely agree, it will be awesome to see Rowe and Kruger develop more this season. I cannot remember a time when we were more loaded on offense than we are now. If our D is as good or better than last season, and the offense shapes up to be as good as we are all expecting or hoping for...then the Utes, I think, will be VERY good this year. The game I'm most looking forward to is the one on October the 4th, if you know what I mean;) I love being in the Pac 12, so many awesome games to look forward to. Best of luck to Star and John and to all the Utes this season, may all stay healthy. And here's to a very exciting upcoming year. Go Utes!!

@naval vet

So I see you have already "frantically and emotionally" run away.

LOL!

@Duckhunter

You are still doing the LOL thing with yourself after every post you make eh? Why is this? Because Gurney went to Utah. Please listen duckhunter, there really are more important things to worry about.

Okay let's have some fun now. Are you going to invite me to play football as well?

StGtoSLC

Wallbanger, very topical and thoughtful reply. As already seen, those do not go over well here. But I agree with you, with offensive strengths already identified going into the season, the potential is definitely there. The difference between having that potential while displaying it a few times a year, and using it consistently is what I think set the 2008 season apart from several other decent years. The USC game will definitely be the biggest game this year, but every game needs to have the same attention to detail in preparation.

I know we all sit behind our computers anonymously talking smack. But, I have always wondered what Duckhunter looks like? I wish he would post a link to a happy snap pic for all of to enjoy. Any guesses what he actually looks like?

Congrats to Star and John. Both great players and a well deserved honor.

@utah-hawaii

I'm 6'3" about 215 pounds, reddish/brown hair starting to gray on the sides but still thick and full. Mid 40's but look more like mid 30's. What else do you want to know?

My guess for you.

5'8" about 215 pounds. Bald. Nothing else matters after that.

Didn't realize this was a dating profile website. Also still hearing crickets for a rebuttal on the bowl invitation process. Any more authoritative of a source for your seeding system than "google it?"

@Duckhunter,

I'm the exact same size and age as you, with a full head of blonde hair. I would have guessed you looked like Dallin Oakes......me bad!

If you're hearing crickets, it's because the moderators wouldn't let my last post through.

"Dnews doesn't allow links. I told you where you can find it."

I know that the DNews does not permit links, but it DOES permit Google search engine keywords. In case you hadn't figured it out, all you have to do to link someone to a site is provide the articles' publication, title, author, and date. Those keywords would easily link one to the site you had allegedly referenced.

And for the record, you had NOT referenced the title or date of the article where Brandon ever mentioned his association with the Univ. of Utah. Ergo, you had NOT "told [me] where [I] could find it."
