Very sad that such an optimistic article about a very promising young man is
overshadowed by news of his death. Our condolences to the University of Utah
family. Hopefully fans of both sides put the nastiness that the rivalry can be
aside and come together to mourn the loss of these young men.
For the life of me I do understand how Y fans can get on here and run the U
down. I appreciate Y fans are totally obsessed with the U but the Y has lost 3
in row and 8 of 11 (including 3 uuuuuugly blowouts).
"this Utah O-line looks like the real deal..."Yawn...
probably much like last year's sports pundit's declaration of the Utes
having a pre-season nationally ranked defense. That was a bust
wasn't it?To infinity and beyond... go utes!
Fight On!:Yet another byU "fan" who can't live without
Utah!Thanks for dropping by to show your love for all things Ute!!
Go Utes! Onward and Upward!
Utah's O-Line definitely can't do much worse than last year, but I
just don't see their improvement making any difference for 2013. U will be
lucky to win 4 games. AZ, ASU, UCLA, Oregon, Standford, and USC are all in the
Loss column. U will likely get wins over Weber, Washington State, and Colorado.
Both BYU and Oregon State are toss ups, but even if you win both of those you
will still be at 5-7 and sitting at home in December/January. Don't
feel too bad, you'll still have your bowl game on Sept. 21st. Before having
nothing to play for the next 2 years.
Van Noy will have the same type of year he has every year: He'll be average
in the early season (when BYU plays a few good teams) and then light it up for
the last 8 or so games against the cupcake/FCS part of the schedule.Oh, and this Utah O-line looks like the real deal...can't say for sure
until the whistle blows in the fall but they've definitely got the physical
Down Under: KVN is a great player, no doubt about that. However, he is also a
direct beneficiary of the poor/weak schedules byu has put together so far in
their independence experiment. For example, did you happen to see what happened
to KVN when he tried to defend Utah's TE in the end zone last year? You
would be well advised to tone down the rhetoric a notch or two. Just enjoy the
show instead of living your life through someone you don't know.Btw...good luck to buy and the Utes. It should be a fun year.
The line will be the key to offensive productivity this year. Erickson can have
all the offensive gimmicks in the world, but if the QB doesn't have time to
throw it won't matter. My biggest hope for the Utes is that
they will just get themselves up for the PAC 12 conference schedule. I think
that those of us who don't have a direct rooting interest in either school
just want to see all of the Utah schools succeed. Utah would be the most fun to
watch make another run, but they have got to stop evaluating the success of
their season soley with the BYU game. Much bigger and better fish to fry on
Van Noy will run lose all day long on these big boys. They will be turning
their heads to see where he is and it will be in the backfield with the QB face
down in the turf.
Poutasi is a beast! His commit was HUGE for Utah, something that might not have
happened without the PAC invite. That and Salt switching his commit from
Florida.Great to have a solid o-line, with amazing 2014 home grown
talent coming in to sure up the future!Go Utes!
