Nice to read positive comments from Rock about Utah football... as opposed to
his typical criticism and snark.
In the game against BYU Travis Wilson showed the potential to be a great
quarterback. You couldn't help but think Heisman Trophy in a couple of
years as a real possibility. It's too bad he now has these problems. I
wish him well.
I hope Travis can come back and become a great quarterback for Utah. Best Wishes
for a full recovery.Of course coming from me it might not help. I wanted
the same thing for Jake Heaps.
Win it on Saturday for Travis.
That is a scary situation for sure. I wish Travis all the best in his recovery,
whether he sees the football field or not any type of head injury is a serious
matter.Good luck Travis and Go Utes!

Wilkinson wrote the article in question. He is not employed by the DesNews but
is an online contributor.
Hmmm.. Brad Rock must have trouble getting his comments past the screeners too.
Thanks, IFIUTE, you're correct. The article was written by an online
contributor,not a full-time staffer. Nor was it edited by Deseret News sports
editor Kent Condon, but by an online content manager.
It's true, I didn't write the article. It was done by an outside
It's true, the article was composed by a contributing writer, not me or
any other full time staffer.. Thanks, IFIUTE, for clarifying.
Ernest T. Bass Bountiful, UTRock, didn't you just write an article
saying both Wilson and Whit need to go?That was definitely not Rock,
or any other full time DesNews writer. It was a blogger who got a little full of
himself and thought it was ok to ape some of the snark that has become the
standard for cool in sports "journalism" wannabes.
Ernest, where in the article does rock suggest whit and Wilson should be the
coach and qb, respectively? I don't even know if rock wrote what you claim
he did, and even if he did, where does he now go back on those claims? He
writes that Wilson has some great traits that will aid him in his future.
That's not the same as saying he is absolutely the best qb for the job. And
I certainly didn't see in the article saying whit is for sure the best
coach for the job. Best of luck to Wilson. And also to those trying
to understand what rock wrote.
Rock, didn't you just write an article saying both Wilson and Whit need to
@Chris BI agree. Travis has heart and if his health won't sustain a
football career he'll find success and respect somewhere else.
Don't count the guy out yet. Sooner or later, I have a hunch we see him
back on the field leading Utah to Pac 12 glory. If he can't due to health,
we certainly support him. But just seeing how much of a fighter he is, my guess
and hope is that we haven't seen the last of him on the field.Go UTES
