    Those were the practice highlights?! I don't think PAC-12 secondaries are too worried about Utah's passing game at the moment.

    Oh boy, these receivers at the U sure look good. I've been a die-hard BYU Cougar fan since the McMahon days (he used to come by the house to celebrate W's when he was at Roy) but as BYU's program continues to struggle, and Utah's continues to rise, it sure is tempting to switch allegiances and start cheering full on for the U.

    The Britain Covey has something good going for him. I really like the way he interviews, and I think he backs it up nicely on the field. Hard not to route for a guy like that!

    @ P5proud,

    Yes, shut down all talk of setting goals and anything else that resembles working towards being confident and striving to improve. We'll have none of that.

    P5 Proud: ".....but it seems that every single year the Ute receivers speak of having a mindset that nobody can stop them and when the season concludes, it appears that quite a few teams on their schedule had no trouble in finding ways to stop them. "

    Really, I've never heard that before. This year's crew is long on talent and short on experience. We'll let their performance speak for them.

    I'm glad they're confident, but it seems that every single year the Ute receivers speak of having a mindset that nobody can stop them and when the season concludes, it appears that quite a few teams on their schedule had no trouble in finding ways to stop them. Look, confidence is fine, but I read of top programs in the country where players are frantic that they simply aren't good enough in fall camp and the coaches agree wholeheartedly and tell them that they are miles away from being where they need to be. So it annoys me a bit when two good but fairly unproven receivers are saying that their mindset is that the Utes have the best receiving corps in the nation. They are not the best in the nation and they have mountains to move to even become one of the BETTER receiving corps in the Pac 12. If that happens, I'll be very happy, but---reality check, please.

    I hope they block well because the QB will be running a lot.

    Playing in the PAC 12 conference should inspire confidence.
