Hard to believe BYU had first shot at this kid and turned a deaf ear. He's
been lights out. Wish he was a Coug!
Keep it up Automatic Andy!
Love the PAC-12 membership! So much to follow each week. And so many games
impact both the Utes and the PAC-12. ie. To date the PAC-12 has won some
85% of its out of conference games. (Thanks to the Utah teams that have
contributed.) What this means is that the PAC-12 projects as many as 10 teams
could be bowl eligible at the end of the season (6 wins). If this were to happen
as projected Utah (even at its 75% sharing factor) could get close to $3M* from
just the bowl games. So go Utes! First get bowl eligible and then win as many as
possible to play in a higher profile bowl. * This is my calculation based
on projected bowl payouts, equal sharing among PAc-12 teams (Utah getting 75% of
full share) and Oregon playing in the BCS bowl game. Make it happen!
Kickers that experience success like this are viewed as very valuable (and they
are). But if and when they struggle and a game is lost by a a few points, then
their metal is tested moving forward. That said, I hope Andy continues his
unbelievable play. What a story he is.
It's like a made for Disney movie.
Props to the coaching staff for giving this kid a look when they had every
reason not to. Andy not only is a nails kicker, but he is a great
and classy person to boot. Perfect fit for this Ute team. And to think he is
only a Freshman!!Go Utes!! Keep it up Prince Phillips!!
The guy is totally impressive. Wish he were a Cougar!
From King Louie to Prince PhillipsPass the Crown.
What a great attitude and asset to the team. I've never heard of a kicker
giving so much props and respect to his kicking unit. Kid's a football
