    Hard to believe BYU had first shot at this kid and turned a deaf ear. He's been lights out. Wish he was a Coug!

    Love the PAC-12 membership! So much to follow each week. And so many games impact both the Utes and the PAC-12. ie.
    To date the PAC-12 has won some 85% of its out of conference games. (Thanks to the Utah teams that have contributed.) What this means is that the PAC-12 projects as many as 10 teams could be bowl eligible at the end of the season (6 wins). If this were to happen as projected Utah (even at its 75% sharing factor) could get close to $3M* from just the bowl games. So go Utes! First get bowl eligible and then win as many as possible to play in a higher profile bowl.
    * This is my calculation based on projected bowl payouts, equal sharing among PAc-12 teams (Utah getting 75% of full share) and Oregon playing in the BCS bowl game. Make it happen!

    Kickers that experience success like this are viewed as very valuable (and they are). But if and when they struggle and a game is lost by a a few points, then their metal is tested moving forward. That said, I hope Andy continues his unbelievable play. What a story he is.

    Props to the coaching staff for giving this kid a look when they had every reason not to.

    Andy not only is a nails kicker, but he is a great and classy person to boot. Perfect fit for this Ute team. And to think he is only a Freshman!!

    Go Utes!! Keep it up Prince Phillips!!

    What a great attitude and asset to the team. I've never heard of a kicker giving so much props and respect to his kicking unit. Kid's a football player.
