Probably Wilson as an offensive captain. Wasn't it right after the Tim McGraw concert that Whitt said TW was a real leader?

No, it was when he beat BYU in Provo. BYU's QB had 30 incompletions in that game.

@ Hedgefog

Kids make mistakes. It Doesn't mean they aren't or can't be great leaders. Ever heard of a guy named Kyle Van Noy?.....

Springville, UT

I'm sorry, I just think there's something lacking about Wilson as the leader.

The image of a beer drinking minor as a team leader and the QB of the Utes just doesn't resonate well.

Christine, for some strange reason the Tim McGraw concert thing has bothered BYU fans more and continues to so. It's a big nothing to Utah fans and has been filed under "who cares?".

Offensive Captains:

Dres Anderson
Junior Salt

Defensive Captains:

Nate Orchard
Brian Blechen

Special Teams Captain: Andy Phillips

Four seniors and a super soph.

Player leadership can't be over emphasized.

@Uncle Rico

Since when does Taysom's performance have any effect on Travis being a leader? I think that might be the most unrelated answer I have ever seen to any question.

Two fliches,

Christine B, in my opinion made a crazy comment, especially in light of BYU's Jamal Williams having made the exact same choice a few months earlier. I hold Jamal Williams to a higher standard because he agreed to a higher standard.

Both of these young men owned up to the bad choices and I have no problem embracing them for being MEN . Jamal paid a higher price because of his willful violation of BYU's honor code and I support the suspension.

You said, "Kids make mistakes" and I agree they do but let's not mistake (pun intended) a choice and call it a mistake. Again, in my opinion, it lessens the accountability required for bad choices.

I like the captains 10CC listed and wish them success this year.

I agree. Good post.
