"Every player and every coach would talk to me and treat me like I was their equal, and I loved that."

Coach Whittingham has put together a great atmosphere up on the hill. They act like a team, and don't need a catch phrase t-shirt to show it.

Great pickup! He's ranked #5 in State by Rivals.

Welcome to the Ute Nation!

Go UTES!!

What does he mean when he says he wants to play great teams each week in a conference? That stuff should not matter. Right?

Welcome to the Utes Uaea!

Time and time again recruits mention the family atmosphere up on the hill. Kyle and the rest of the coaching staff have done a great job in creating that. As a poster stated above, Utah is a team and they play and act as such.

Keep it up Utes! I'm looking forward to a great season.

It's a great time to be a Ute and I'm happy we continue to get top talent from the in state recruits.

Go Utes!

"Utah now has 11 commits for the 2013 signing class."

Brandon, that's 10 by my count. Do you know something I don't?

Ha Ha Ha, you ute fans are funny. You get a kid that was always going to be a ute and all you can do is hint BYU-BYU-BYU...how sad is it for the real Ute fans that are only obsessed with all things utah? If I were a true Ute fan, I would hate the fellow ute fans above. I would hope they all start sporting their BYU gear based on the facts I know where their hearts really are.

"how sad is it for the real Ute fans that are only obsessed with all things utah?"

That would include you, then?

"Playing in the Pac-12 and with it a guarantee of a stellar schedule year-in and year-out was another factor."

Does this include Northern Colorado, Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Oregon State and Washington State?

I don't discredit a PAC12 schedule, but I'm not sure I would call it stellar at least when comparing to the SEC, BIG10, BIG12, BYU's future schedule and Utah's announcement to play easier non-conference opponents.

Utah is clearly #2 in a weak South Division. Until a couple other teams Rise Up from the South Division, Utah's schedule will not be stellar. Utah's schedule is a lot like it was in the MWC, win two or three key games and U could have a shot at the Rose Bowl.

Congrats Uaea. I'm glad you're staying to play in-state.

Max-was-wrong,

If the kid was always going to be a Ute as you claim, then why did BYU even bother to offer him a scholarship? Are you suggesting that Bronco is deliberately wasting his time and energy?

@Dutchman
Brighton linebacker Uaea Masina was tempted by the offers from BYU and San Diego State, but in the end it was his love of Utah football that won out as the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Masina committed to the Utes on Sunday.
this quote came from the sltrib so was it going to be any other way.
Good get for the Utes

CougFaninTX,

2012---Washington State 30--BYU 7.

You guys would love to be playing in the PAC 12 and playing that schedule that you mock. It turns out BYU tried for decades to get an invite to the now PAC 12 and it never came. Now you treat the PAC 12 as if you were never interested. Funny.

@dutchman

If Troy Hinds was "always going to be a Cougar" then why did utah offer him a scholarship?

Because he is good, and instate, just like Masina is. What an ill thought comment.

"You guys would love to be playing in the PAC 12 and playing that schedule that you mock."

It's laughable how Utah fans constantly belittled EVERY PAC 10 opponent BYU played in recent years as mediocre or worse, but now that the Utes are in the PAC 12, EVERY PAC 12 opponent is "stellar".

The hypocrisy and inconsistency of the labels used by the kids on the hill is hysterical... and pathetic.

Moving forward, Utah fans are delusional if they think that BYU fans are "envious" of Utah's PAC 12 schedule for 2013, when BYU's 2013 schedule features home games against Boise State, Georgia Tech, Texas, and Utah, and away games at Hawaii, Houston, Notre Dame, Utah State, and Wisconsin.

To start, I am a HUGE Utah fan but attending at BYU. I love that the last couple of recruits have talked about how welcome they feel at Utah. I can't remember his name, but the recruit before out of Texas talked about feeling like family at Utah and that he didn't get that same feeling at BYU. These players aren't just making stuff up for the news, it's real. The football players wear the band of brothers shirts, as well as students, and yet when it comes time to show that brotherhood, they turn away and are hypocrites. Everything is competition at BYU and it's all about inclusion at Utah. I am glad that the players see that and chose Utah. Go Utes!

CougfanTX,

You're correct, Utah's schedule 2013 includes N. Colorado, Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Oregon State and Washington St? However, it does NOT include Weber St., Idaho, San Jose State and New Mexico State :)

The PAC12 is certainly not the toughest conference.... the SEC is. But according to Sagarin the PAC12 over the last 5 years has ranked, 4th, 1st, 3rd, 4th, 2nd. Forty percent of the time they have been the number #1 or #2 conference. Not a world-beater conference, but certainly very similar rankings to the BIG12 and BIG10 over the past 5 years.

The best thing about BYU's 2013 schedule is has ended the "BYU to the Big 12" delusionsal talk. Fans have calmed down and are accepting independence. Its a nice schedule -- certainly better than what they had in the MWC -- not quite a BCS conference schedule, but still nice.

"However, it does NOT include Weber St., Idaho, San Jose State and New Mexico State :)"

Neither does BYU's :)

Duck,

At least not yet, is there not some open spots? Three or four?

duck,

good catch, I hit the wrong key. Let me re-state without the typo

Utah's 2012 schedule does not include Weber St., Idaho, San Jose State and New Mexico State.

Even though I know you understood my post the first time I don't mind calling out cougar fan hypocrisy for you a second time since you seem very interested in that topic today
