Obviously your university of utah "education" failed you when it comes to comprehension. First of all no I am not going to make a prediction because I do not know if he will transfer or not, in fact at this point I don't think a decision has been made by the Hansen family either. But it has been discussed, it is being considered, it is a very real possibility, and it very well could happen.

But like all such decisions all of the variables have to be considered and the fact he has redshirted already is one of those variables.

Obviously it has you worried and regardless of whether or not it eventually happens that is plenty to make me amused knowing you are suffering over it.

Ducks correct on Hansen's eligibility.

He redshirted, and got his shoulder fixed. Transferring to BYU would cost a year of eligibility.

I would be shocked if he went to BYU, though I'm not saying it's not a possibility. For 2 years we heard Langi was going to BYU, and stayed true to the U, I expect Chase to do the same.

I completely agree with Duckhunters analysis of Chase Hansen. His arm strength and throwing ability are avg at best, and his arm strength isn't even close to Taysom Hill's. Taysom's arm strength has never been an issue, he's got plenty. It's his accuracy that needs improvement.

As for Dres Anderson he is the real deal and fun to watch. I said last year before the season began that he and Kenneth Scott have the talent to be one of the best WR duos in the PAC12. Unfortunately Scott went down with injury. If he's completely back and healthy this year there's no reason to believe they won't be a dynamic duo again. Congrats to Dres on this honor.

Agreed. My only gripe with Dres last year was his inability to corral a few too many passes that looked catchable.

If he's improved there, he'll be dangerous. If he and Scott are both healthy they'll be a fun combo to watch.

Great how a top rated player can come from the bottom of the pack.

Anyone know why Cory Butler switched his commitment to Kansas? That's a huge blow to the Utes.

Stop it! You keep saying the same thing about BYU transferring to the Big 12.

Dres is a proven commodity, Hansen is not. Hansen will transfer like others have if he doesn't get playing time on a PAC-12 team.

@uteology

Uh....I've never said BYU was "transferring to the Big 12", in fact I DON"T want them to go to the Big 12 although I am starting to think they are going to need to get some kind of alignment with one of the big 5 conferences to gain better post season access for football. I like how you just made that up "frantically and emotionally" and tried to pass it off as true. lol

As for Chase Hansen, well it is something they are considering, and exploring. Yes I know that hurts your feelings but it is a fact none the less. And who can blame them?

But as I said I don't know if he will, the only info I have is they are considering it but that doesn't even tell us if BYU wants him as a qb. They didn't recruit him as a qb to begin with so what's to say they have even changed their mind and want him?

I enjoy your angst though. lol

PG #1 FAN:

Chase Hansen will in no way be going to byU. He did use his red shirt, IIRC, because of the injury his freshman season. I have talked to his mother. She is more than thrilled with the Utah program and Chase being in it.

Thanks for all the opinions otherwise. It will be a sad day in Utah County when all your prognostications (same as Langi) will prove to just wishful, jealous thinking - AGAIN!

Dres is the real deal, and will be playing in the NFL next year. Can't wait to see him with a Healthy Scott and new speed around them.

Go Utes!

Thanks to all the byU "fans" who have flocked to yet another Utah story to prove that your lives are simply incomplete without Utah! We appreciate your love and support!

When he makes predictions "for the record", they are generally followed by unscheduled trips to Tulsa.

He is really gun-shy now about those for the record predictions. Ask him about Fangupo!

Yes it hurts my feelings that an unproven player from a blue-blood family will transfer to BYU because by him leaving it will leave a big hole at Utah. Just like when Heaps left BYU and they all but lost their national title hopes that he announced a few years earlier at Iggys.

Jefe-Ute:

It is reported that Butler has family in the Midwest. It is also pretty well reported that Utah is not out of it with Butler. While losing a highly rated WR seems like it is devastating, which it might end up being - 1-) We are not out of it yet, and 2-) We have not fared well in the past with JC WR transfers, no matter how highly rated. I would take a wait and see with Butler before I make any declarations of whether on not we actually lose Butler, and whether he turns into something we can, or could have used.

That is my clear and precise opinion and I'm sticking to it - for now!

Go Utes!!

What was this article about again...oh yes, best of luck Dres on another electrifying year. Hope the new offense finds ways to get you the ball in space...I'm confident you'll take care of the rest.

Best of luck to Dres and to K Scott this year. Will need a healthy QB and better OL protection or the big yards will come when we are playing prevent defenses and down by more than 10 points.

As far as the comments on Hansen ... the comments from the Y fans are wishful thinking. Yes he may transfer to the Y as that is a possibility for any kid returning from a mission. On the flip side, he chose the U, was given a chance to compete at the QB position. Had a surgery and used a redshirt year. Coach Whit promised him a chance to compete and that was provided. He will also have a chance when he returns. If he does transfer, I will lose a lot of respect for the young man because every thing the U promised him has been provided. Bronco told him they wouldn't give him a chance to compete at QB. What makes you think that has changed?

"I have talked to his mother"

lol

Let's pretend that is true just for arguments sake, what do you think she would say? She's not going to come out and say "we hate utah and we're out of here" when talking to a utah "fan", or anyone for that matter, when they still have a decision to make.

I doubt you've spoken with anyone in their family but even if you did you got the answer that is predictable and smart on their part.

In the meantime many of us that actually live around and associate with them are privy to some things as well.

And no I'm not making any predictions on something I have no control over, I leave that sort of thing to utah "fans" with low IQ's. But there is a decision to be made and it is no sure thing it will go the way you want it to.
