Made this account to give a shout out to Greg Reese. It's a very courageous and selfless thing you're doing, volunteering to play at a different position than what you've played the last few years. To the people who will badmouth it and say he is just doing it for a chance at playing time, duh, he's a competitor and wants to get on the field. That doesn't diminish from the fact that he's taking a risk and putting himself out there. I just hope you have as good of a transition from tight end to defensive line as Rashede Hageman did up at Minnesota. The Utes would definitely appreciate that kind of production.

MNUte,

I don't think Ive ever heard someone criticize someone for switching positions to get on the field, ever, in any sport. But apparently you have some axe to grind huh?

ChrisB,

Really? I came on here to compliment Reese, not grind an axe.

Focus on the players and football, not the people talking about them. Maybe you should wish Reese luck and hope he does have a transition like Hageman rather than attempting to overanalyze the meaning behind a part of my post. From what I've seen in the comment sections of other articles, it might help you get less criticism from other posters.

I think Chris is right. If you want to give a shout out, just give a shout out.
Go Utes!

Prior to Spring camp, ESPN had a lot to say about Jason Whittingham stepping up to assume a large role as an anchor amid our Linebacking corps. Yet, since Spring camp had started, all I've been hearing about is Paul, Norris, and Masina (and Hale prior to his ACL tear). So who knows what's up with Whittingham? Is he injured? Has he been held out as a precaution? Or is he simply getting beat out by those aforementioned LBs? At 6-2/240, Whittingham would be our biggest LB. And he's experienced too. I would have hoped to see him winning a starting job.

Naval Vet, he's out for the spring with an injury, whether surgical recovery, rehab, or precautionary I don't know. But he was announced at the start of spring camp as out for the spring, and would return to the starting lineup in the fall.
