re: "meltdown against the team that U hate losing to more than any other

October.”Don’t kid yourself; a loss to USC will be
forgotten before Thanksgiving; a loss to BYU could sting for decades.
I agree with others that no true freshman is really NFL ready. That said,
depending on his grasp of the playbook and leadership JT can be great. He is the
most talented QB at Utah, and that's saying something with Huntley being as
talented as he is. Watch film on JT if you haven't already. He's
easily the most gifted QB Utah has landed in awhile. Hopefully he
can learn the playbook and get the team to rally around him...and it sounds like
he's already doing that, by making himself the clear #2. I think he'll
be #1 by seasons end, but that's just my humble opinion. He is a great kid,
so hoping nothing but the best for him.
"meltdown against the team that U hate losing to more than any other team on

But Seriously Folks, You must have missed the part where it was a
Utah player, not Utah Fans, who made the NFL comment.
re: “Can't wait for the November meltdown”jonnny:
“Funny, that’s all you Coug fans have to look forward to. But Utah
scheduled a patsy for its last November game, so no meltdowns this
year.”Despite the PAC 12 scheduling your one of the weakest
teams in the conference for the end of November every year, it was Colorado that
started Utah’s traditional November meltdown.Unfortunately for
U, this season’s November meltdown will be punctuated with a meltdown
against the team that U hate losing to more than any other team on the planet.
I'm very excited to see how Tuttle develops. Is he currently NFL ready?
LOL, not a chance. Nice praise from Curtis Enis' son though, but perhaps a
tad exuberant.I love the fact that Tuttle is a grounded kid. He is
about team first, which is what will make him a great leader. He has never
shown the "Jake Hypes" me-first mentality. With that, added to his
football talent and intelligence, he should be a great player when all is said
and done. But that will be determined on the field. The only thing I know for
sure is - I will have a great time watching it all unfold.It is
always a great day to be a Ute!!
If Jake Tuttle is "NFL Ready" - he better be starting.
This is not the first article of BYU-P supporters doing everything they can to
try and create a QB controversy on the hill. Utah has their starting QB and
quality backup. Again, there is no desperate reason to push Tuttle, a freshman.
Save all of this QB drama for your team down south, where things are desperate.
I, too, am skeptical of any kind of pre-season hype placed on anyone, especially
a freshman. That is usually reserved for the team 40 miles south who annually
buys into it, only to end up falling flat on its face.
Well... like all UU teams, preseason hype about promise does not mean much.
Well, based on the fact that the past few FrUte QB's had no business being
D1 QB's (less Brian)I can see why any QB that can actually throw,
look downfield, be marginally patient in the pocket would get a FRESHMAN WR so
amped up about a FELLOW Freshman that Utah faith full are quick too spin hype
about a QB that doesn't look like Napoleon Dynamite, or throw like Uncle
High achieving QBs at Utah,hmmm, let me see? Scott Mitchell?
“Can't wait for the November meltdown”you
can’t be serious:Funny, that’s all you coog fans have to
look forward to. But Utah scheduled a patsy for its last November game, so no
meltdowns this year.
JT has a lot to prove. He will get his stage, in time. I hope Huntley stays
healthy this year, though, he's a special talent and could do something
“Can't wait for the November meltdown.”How many
times does this have to be pointed out to you?We annihilated UCLA/CU
last November & narrowly lost against ranked WAZZU/@ ranked UW in
miraculously stunning fashion.....This hardly qualifies as a
“meltdown”, period.Conversely, last November byu barely
beat national bottom-feeders UNLV/UH & lost to FSU, as well as bottom-feeder
UMASS @ home on Homecoming/Senior Day, giving them their 1st FBS road W
ever—LolThis solidified byu’s residency in The National
Bottom 10–LolWho’s your Daddy?Go Utes!
Both JT/SE were high-achieving 4 stars prior to their arrival & have
continued their high-achieving ways once they arrived as TF.JT has
already created separation from a rock-solid QB in JS & set himself up to be
our back-up to TH.....If history repeats itself, he’ll garner significant
playing time this year, perhaps beyond retaining his RS status, depending on
TH’s advancement/maturation/ability to remain healthy.SE has
immediately asserted himself into our regular WR rotation.Again,
both are TF.Who’s your Daddy?Go Utes!
NFL ready? Well then, let's just give him the Heisman right now, and while
we are at it the national championship trophy.Gotta love utah fans.
Can't wait for the November meltdown.
Lot of good comments on this article. Using a redshirt on a freshman QB is
extremely helpful. With the new rule he can play in as many as 4 games and keep
his 4 year eligibility. Love the new rule. He's there if needed though
because of injury. Same could be said about Wilson at BYU but not sure he's
as skilled. But yes, there is so much HYPE every year. Heaps? Good luck to our
Utah teams!!! May they all qualify for a bowl game and may the Ute's
finally with the south!!
Please stop with the NFL talk. Just because a Freshman WR says it, it
doesn’t make it real. Don’t fall for the bait Utah fans.
Since the topic is QB’s, I assume that’s what backpacn was referring
to.Alex Smith would be the closest to a high achiever, but he was
only a 2-star.
I think all of this is happening because of coach Taylor. What QB wouldn't
want to play for him? I see even better times ahead because of coach Taylor.
@backpacn - Sandy, UT "You must be referring to another program
because the Utes have never had a high-achieving 4-star in their entire
history."no idea if you want to count bowles or no but he was
definitely high achieving 4-star.garrett bowles was 4 star lineman who
played at utah via snow. he was first team pac 12. was first round draft
choice and immediately started for denver broncos last year.
rockster... ain’t no freshmen QB in the entire country that is NFL
readyGet a grip man
backpacn"...the Utes have never had a high-achieving 4-star in
their entire history."Maybe at some other position, but not at
azute1"From 1 high-achieving 4 star, who’s father played
in The League, to another."You must be referring to another
program because the Utes have never had a high-achieving 4-star in their entire
This article reminds me of those written about Jake Heaps, our 5-star recruit
who was destined to be the next Tom Brady. Early hype is just
“.....but I'm not putting much stock in a freshman saying another
freshman is ‘NFL ready’.....”From 1 high-achieving
4 star, who’s father played in The League, to another.Go Utes!
Wow, so much preseason hype! Seems like I hear this every year about someone,
but I'm not putting much stock in a freshman saying another freshman is
"NFL ready". Still, every year I hope for a better offense and it would
be nice for that hope to finally come true! Go Utes!
Go Jake Tuttle - the real deal.
“I really like Jayson Shelley and Drew Lisk. Jack Tuttle is the future
‘golden boy,’ but I wasn't thrilled by him during the spring
and am not impressed with him yet.”DL most likely never plays
a down for us &, per program insiders @ 247Sports, JT is rapidly making
separation from JS for the back-up job right now during Fall Camp.Your erroneously salty sentiment toward JT is duly noted.Go Utes!
Great kid! With the new rules, he can get in some meaningful game time this
year and still redshirt. Risky to use his very much the first two games but
getting playing time would help as well. I think the young man we do
very well regardless.
I really like Jayson Shelley and Drew Lisk. Jack Tuttle is the future
"golden boy," but I wasn't thrilled by him during the spring and am
not impressed with him yet.
Sam Darnold was an RS freshman, no? I think that RS year is critical to a
QB's development.Best wishes to Hundley, Tut, and the rest of
the QB group.Go Coogs!
I really hope and expect that King Tut get a couple of series under his belt
through the non-conference schedule. I'm totally happy with Huntley, but
letting Tuttle get some game experience is critical to his development.
Outstanding kid/player!JT committed to us early & remained loyal
all throughout the recruiting process, including recruiting in our behalf, &
then signed during the early signing period.....He’s a Ute,
through-&-through, period.FYI, JT held a scholarship offer from
USC, as well.Go JT!Go Utes!
Let’s just wait and see. No reason to put that kind of pressure on a young
freshman. I hope he gets sometime this year but hope it’s not because
Huntley is hurt. Go Utes
