    I don't know if you noticed or not but that his play almost lost us the game! OF COURSE it's important to keep the receivers in front, that's the whole point of being a DB! The gameplan is always to keep the receivers in front! haha duh! When you play so far back though and can't make a play on the ball then you give up 300+pass yards. We got pretty lucky in that game and had some calls go our way. It's obvious that he's a bit rusty and I know he's only going to get better i'm just commenting on this article. Based on pure play during games he hasn't shown that he's a leader but I believe he will be very soon! GO UTES

    BYU is going to carve up the Utah secondary with Taysom's pin point passing.

    TFUDD, I hadn't noticed this season so far. His 3 PBUs last week speak well, but it was against a bad quarterback. What I did notice last year was that while his tackling was vastly improved on from his freshman year, he seemed a little slower and his pass coverage didn't seem quite as great. I think he can and should improve on it this year as well.

    Don't you think you ought to reserve judgement on him until he's played in a few more games? Against Utah state the initial game plan was to keep the receivers in front of them, and he being the experienced safety of the group has the responsibility of being the last line of defense. Last week was also obviously not an indicator or a good measuring stick game. Wait until after the Oregon State game before you start judging.

    I dunno if anyone else has noticed but Eric Rowe has been by far one of the worst players in the secondary this season! I am a Utah fan and he played excellent defense for us all last year but this year he's been too tentative on defense to jump routes and step up. He waits to long to attack and step up to either make a hit or play the ball. I think he'll come into his own soon enough and be the player he was all last year! GO UTES
