    I feel like I went to sleep and woke up in a parallel universe, filled with civil and informative comments from Red and Blue fans alike. I like this universe.

    BTW, I think Utah fans should be concerned about their running game...while the OL may improve, losing John White is a big loss.

    And for Y fans, I think the kicking game is the biggest risk.

    anytime my friend, here's to a healthy and injury-free season for both teams.

    "What group concerns you the most with the Cougs?"

    That's easy, the O-line. I was at BYUs practice/scrimmage today and they look like good players, and were able to keep up with the high tempo, but there were holding calls, false starts and a lot of polish needed. I'm a bit concerned about our boundary corner position as well, but both guys fighting for playing time at that position performed well today. Always enjoy reasonable discussion, thanks steel. Cheers.

    Couldn't agree more, linebackers are my biggest concern going into this season especially with the news of Blechen's tendinitis still lingering. It looks like we had a good LB transfer from Miami but unless Miami gets handed sanctions he won't eligible to play til next year. I am a little concerned with CB this year because of the inexperience of both of the projected starters. What group concerns you the most with the Cougs?

    Utes will always be good at CB & Dline. They seem to recruit well at those positions. If I were a Utah fan my concern would be at the LB position. They will need some people to step up at that position especially against the Oregon, Arizona, and UCLA offenses they will face. Good luck utes.

    Good point Duckhunter, I think the same can be said about BYU's D-Line with losing Ziggy

    This is one position where it should just be assumed that utah would reload. While I doubt tenny is as good as star, that was some good hyperbole though, it would surprise me greatly if utah did not have some good defensive linemen that have just been waiting for their turn.
