    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    If the world ever collapses in on itself, I truly believe that it will be because of the comment sections in the Des News and Tribune. Not that ill care what the cause was.....

    Yes. They are quite the contrast to be sure...and also terrible. Whenever my faith in humanity is being restored, I make sure I go to the comments section of the trib just to remind myself who is out there.

    haha...that's funny.

    Seriously, though, I see "those" comments pretty much on all articles on ESPN, Facebook, DN, ST, and many other media. I really don't read many of those anymore. In the end, it's just human stupidity. People are often selfish, ignorant, close-minded, and only see only what they want. Plus, there are so many bots on social media -- a lot of crap. Idiocy does not discriminate.

    Nope. Only time any practices are open are select spring practices.

    Media can only attend last 20 minutes of practice.

    From the recent reports, all they get to see is special teams.

    Not really true.

    A practice earlier this week was a limited practice (the new NCAA rules have changed the way the U practices, some practices are limited now)

    By the time the media availability window came special teams was the only portion left.

    Yesterday they saw live stuff, Young picking off Williams was on video.

    Well, that's what the Utecast folks have been mentioning the last few days. Maybe they just show up late, who knows.

    No offense to those guys, but I personally don't really consider that to be 'media'.

    I'm going to stick with Lynn Worthy, Chris Kamrani, Dirk Facer, Josh Furlong etc

    So I was listening to Taylor say that he wanted the offenses aggressiveness in the game to match the aggressiveness of the defense and it got me thinking that Utah doesn't really play aggressive defensively at the end of games. We were so soft in coverage against Oregon that they just marched down the field. How often does that happen? I would say on a fairly regular basis.

    Think of the BYU game last year. It often seems like we want to let the opposing team get to the red zone so we can set up a "backs to the wall" stand there.

    Ya, you're right. Utah is so good, that when they lose it's because they only ever beat themselves.

    Very funny. I'll thank you to allow me to complain about our head coach without your help!

    Also, Tereke Lewis has been bumped to January. Vickers has until the end of the week to show up before the program moves on. Lewis seemed to have passed his class last week, so having to wait until January seems surprising. Not sure what's been holding Vickers up.

    I just listened to a podcast interview by Bill Riley of Ben Criddle. It's really quite wonderful. After listening to Ben for a while my thought was "Bless his heart." My favorite part was his comment about "the magic pixie dust" on Tanner Mangum's passes.

    Bill was on Ben's show a week or two ago and now it sounds like Ben is returning the favor. Ben is another in a long line of over the top homers for BYU who gets to 'cover' the team. I honestly don't know who a person like Bill could turn to to get a real, honest take of the cougars. Brandon Gurney? I honestly dont know.

    So I was thinking about this QB competition. With camp the length that it is, I don't think it is hurting the preparation for the season. Last year Troy played hurt because, as Whit said yesterday, Huntley was too careless with the ball. I believe the coaches are giving Huntley a good, long look to determine whether he has gotten that out of his system and they can really trust him this year and moving forward. This is a great opportunity for him to show the coaches that, regardless of Jack Tuttle, he is the man going forward.



    I like Bateman and I think the Utes can win with him at QB. When Troy is eventually named the starter. It will be interesting to see if Huntley is given the opportunity to redshirt. If I'm Huntley I don't. I take the No. 2 reps and get ready to claim the starting job next spring.

    When Wynn was a true freshman and was competing with Louks and Terrance Cain for the position. There came a time in fall camp when the coaches decided that Wynn was the clear No. 2. Most of the offensive coaches believed he was the clear No. 1, but Whit was not convinced and Cain was the starter until game 7 or 8. Anyway, the coaches sat down with Wynn and told him that he was the clear No. 2 and that he could decide whether he wanted to be the No. 2 or redshirt. They gave him the weekend to talk with family and others and he came back on a Monday and said he was good to go. Louks was given the word that he was No. 3 and he tried safety for a couple of practices and then transferred.
