Horseshoes and hand grenades
One thing that occurred to me late in the game was the recruiting of these two
teams. Two guys in particular, Deon Hollins, Jr., and Myles Jack, both came down
to the final week of their recruitment to pick between UCLA and Utah (along with
ASU and UW in Jack's case, and Notre Dame in Hollins'). I saw Hollins
play, though he didn't have much impact, but Jack was one of the
Bruins' biggest playmakers. Having one or both of these players in black
jerseys instead of white last night may have done a lot to swing the favor of
the game. These are the types of guys it seems like the Utes are gradually
starting to get and much more come very close to getting with each year.
Hopefully the Utes will continue to improve on closing deals on those types of
A moral victory!
Well called Sitake!Excellent game
Scorecard Utah finishes with three wins this season and enjoys Christmas it
home again. Love that PAC10
6 interceptions? What, was he channeling Riley Nelson? Utah had it's
chances. In the end, they choked.
