Thread: If a Tree Falls in Rice Eccles Stadium - Utah vs. Stanford 10/7/17

    If a Tree Falls in Rice Eccles Stadium - Utah vs. Stanford 10/7/17

    I know it's early for a thread, but the kick time was announced: 8:15 Mountain, Fox Sports 1.

    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.

    Stanford beat writer says JJ Arcega-Whiteside won't play for Stanford this Saturday."He's their best WR on the field."

    Exactly. Wake me up when it's an offensive lineman.

    10 position battles to watch this week:

    https://athlonsports.com/college-foo...ch-week-6-2017

    5. Utah DL Lowell Lotulelei, LB Kavika Luafatasaga and DB Chase Hansen vs. Stanford RB Bryce Love

    Cardinal running back Bryce Love is shooting up everybody’s Heisman list and it’s not hard to see why considering he’s leading the country in rushing at a pace not seen in 20 years. While he’s already faced some solid defenses, it’s a point of pride in Salt Lake City to stop the run and Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham has the track record to back it up. The Utes will need to have sure tacklers at every single level on Saturday night if they stand any chance in slowing the terrific tailback from the Farm however.

    The pundits on Riley's show all seem to agree that Utah needs to keep Love out of the secondary. Nothing revolutionary there. the idea is that if they can at least slow him down at the LOS, he'll be less productive and might be held to 100 yards or so.

    The last time we beat these guys in RES, we threw a ton of screens out on the edge to Poole (7 catches for 75 yards). Poole also ran for 111 yards on 22 carries. This makes me think that McCormick and DHC could be featured this week prominently. Hopefully the inside/out game is humming with Moss and the two previously mentioned.

    I think Stanford will test our LBs with both Love and with former Bingham Tight End Dalton Shultz, who has two TDs on the year, and who will want to have a big game in his only appearance in front of family and friends.

    How good is Bryce Love? He's got 8 rushing TDs on the season...we've got 7 as a team.

    I have a single ticket for tomorrow's game. W13, Row 45. Face value is $71.00. Any takers?

    They are opening ridiculous holes for him, and once he's through a hole, he's gone.

    This is a good time to point out the dishonesty in those who play for Stanford. They universally say they are going because they want a great education, but when they arrive, they immediately seek out the easiest majors on campus. They don't care about education; they want to belong to an elite club because they believe it will bring them easy fortune.

    Of course, none of them would be admitted to Stanford without football.

    We are getting screwed by these officials. Absolutely screwed.

    So I said to David Eckstein, "You promised me, Eckstein, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there have only been one set of prints in the sand. Why, when I have needed you most, have you not been there for me?" David Eckstein replied, "Because my little legs had gotten tired, and you were carrying me." And I looked down and saw that I was still carrying David Eckstein.

    The Stanford player took two steps before hitting Gay.

    And that wasn't even the worst call on that series. 2 huge terrible and unacceptable calls that changed the game. Either one is called right and we score on that drive.

    Then they compound it when Whittingham calls them on their shit with the personal foul. Just a joke.

    We keep blitzing on 3rd and long, and they keep converting with good Oline play and a good pass.

    Has the Stanford oline ever been called for holding?
