Looks like my little sister is having delusions of grandeur again."8-4 season and we have as good of a chance at South title as
anyone"LOL!The only title we have a chance at is the
pillow fight in the Rockies title to determine who gets to spend the long, cold
winter in the PAC basement.As far as rushing yardage goes, it's
nice to "want", but the truth is, we couldn't average 5 yards per
rush if our red-tailed pants were on fire.
"Utah would like at least 5 yards per rush..."LOL! Good luck
with that.The Utes have never even come close to averaging 5
yards/rush during the Bronco/Kyle era. In fact, since joining the PAC, the Utes
haven't even managed 4 yards/rush.Average BYU/Utah yards/rush
during the Bronco/Kyle eraYear - BYU/Utah2005 - 4.4/4.32006 - 4.2/4.02007 - 3.8/4.02008 - 4.1/4.12009 - 4.0/4.32010 - 4.2/4.62011 - 4.2/3.82012 - 3.9/3.62013 - 3.5/3.4
(after one game)
Wishful crimson thinking.The Utes have ZERO, as in, absolutely NO,
CHANCE of averaging 5-yards per rush.In fact, Utah won't even
average 4.0 yards/rush.
I hope we can average 5 yards per rush against Weber State. I was concerned with
the push from the offensive line we were seeing, and the push our defensive line
was allowing (although they did pick it up in the 2nd half). In the first half
USU seemed to get 4 or more yards every carry while we were picking up about 2.
I'm hoping we clean that up and average about 4-5 yards a carry; that would
make our offense very solid.
8-4 season and we have as good of a chance at South title as anyone.usu is a good team and things will only improve after game 1. I liked what I
saw considering it was our first game. I've called it since day
1. 8-4 with all 4 losses coming against BCS schools. Mark it
RE: Goal line efficiency --- was looking at my DVR the other day & noticed
that at least on 3rd down it appeared that if Williams had done a left jump cut
he could have walked in, the hole was huge with fantastic blocks both left and
right of the gap.Instead ran into the pack & was stopped.Same thing on several of York's runs --- run into the pack & be
stopped.Hopefully the team will be analyzing film & talk about
jump cuts, spins, etc (Mr. Poole's specialities!!) and that 5 yard per
carry goal just may happen very soon.Why not run to daylight?
the team will not average 5 yards per carry this season... It's a great
goal though.Wilson is a beast of a quarterback... 6'7, 240...
Thats just nuts compared to what we've had the last few years (wynn was a
buck sixty when he came to utah).
Team will be hard to beat if they avg 5 yards a carry.
I was glad to hear that Bubba Poole never got into a rhythm last week because he
actually looked pretty good. So if that's him playing poorly, I'm
excited to see him reach his potential. 5 yards per carry plus Travis Wilson
throwing the ball like he did against USU would go a long ways toward helping
Utah climb the PAC-12 ladder.
