If you like losing meaningful games in November - Utah is the place for you.
@spokane uteOne thing he'd know for sure if he goes to Utah is
that he won't be playing in any pac12 championship games.
I'd rather have Troy Williams. He should go to BYU; he would know his post
season destination for the rest of his carrier.
Utes could use another mediocre qb that transferred because he couldn't
play where he was at. Their kind of qb.
Not only can he work on his graduate degree with a scholarship DN Subscriber, he
can play football. People get scholarships all the time to work on their
graduate degrees in many a field. I don't see a problem.
Go get him Utes. IMHO he'd be an improvement over Troy Williams.
If he'd stayed in SLC he'd have started at the U for four years.
This reveals the ugly side of "college sports." College
sports are not something involving student athletes, but rather their own little
scam where they get good athletes and find schemes to fit into arcane rules to
be called "students" so they can play.This kid has an
undergraduate degree already. He is working on a graduate degree. He is
transferring from one school to another for the sole purpose of playing
football.Oh, for the days, when there were real student athletes,
who attended real classes and had to pass tests like everyone else, and
graduated on time and went out to jobs in the real world.
The State of Utah? Interesting which school is going to eventually claim him.
The Truth:Good luck Coop. Let this be a wake up call to
all of the local recruits looking at greener pastures where these bigger schools
have two to three deep of equal if not better players. Stay home and play in
your own backyard for a P5 school in the most prestigious conference.
Have to think Nebraska would be the best landing spot. He was recruited by
Huskers coach Mike Riley when Riley coached at Oregon State. Bateman could
come in and instantly compete for the starting job with Tommy Armstrong
graduating.Cal Berkley could also be a possibility knowing that
Davis Webb is NFL bound.BYU and Utah are to set at QB for a grad
transfer. Utah State is an outside possibility.
Seems like it happens all too often where the states best prospects leave to
coveted programs and never get the opportunity to play. I'm sure these are
incredible experiences so i don't want to take that away. However, it would
be great if Whittingham can keep the local talent at the U similar to what
Washington has done. Their priority has been to keep talent in state and I think
that's the case of any successful programs. Go Colts, Go Utes!
I know a desperate team that always needs two things: a QB and an OC. It
won't matter cause my Trojans found their QB for the next 3 years. Watch us
own the Rose Bowl. Let me know when you get there.
