    I saw the WVU QB Grier dislocate or break his finger a couple weeks ago. So the first question is whether he'll be playing.

    The article said he broke his hand

    Whitt said yesterday it looks good for Huntley to play.

    Cooper Bateman has left the team and will not be at the bowl game.

    Interesting reading the WVU board. I get the distinct feeling they don’t know much about Utah football.

    I guess Bateman didn't want to be in Dallas over Christmas. Sad.

    I can relate. I try to avoid Dallas at all costs....but the bowl swag might have persuaded me.

    Good on you! I was set to head to Shreveport, but the day after Christmas makes it difficult for me.

    Enjoy big D.

    Oh, I’m not going to the game.

    Can’t get time off, you have to request that week off 9-10 months in advance in my line of work.

    I was just saying if I was Bateman the bowl swag may have persuaded me.

    I'm a little disappointed that Whit came out and said that Huntley would start if healthy. I think Williams performance against CU should have given him the opportunity to start his final game. I feel more confident with Williams at QB than Huntley, mostly because we seem to be able to run the ball more effectively. I guess WVU plays a very similar defense to Arizona. I think that helps us in bowl prep.

    dont they know if he is going to be healthy or not? Who is getting the reps in practice? Or is it just mostly the younger players until game prep week?

    Is this about rewarding Troy as a senior or about giving us the best chance to win? I'm not sure CU should be used as a gauge. The offense (and run game) were just as good against UCLA under Huntley as they were against CU under Williams. Those were the two worst run defenses on our conference schedule (maybe our schedule overall?).

    Tyler needs experience, and to learn how to hand off the ball.
    If he’s healthy, I want him to play.

    Bring on the Mountaineers: The Heart of Dallas Bowl 2017

    I think it was Riley indulging the other day who were talking about Zack Moss, speculating that he runs better when Williams is playing quarterback because Troy gives Zack the ball and doesn’t compete with him for running plays the way Huntley does. It also seems to me that Huntley is simply bound to get injured — missing a few games every season, like he did this year — if he keeps running as much as he does. Maybe the answer is for the coaches to dial Tyler’s running plays back — try to make the opposing team worry about him running, keeping them honest at all times so that they can’t cheat in coverage — but not send him sprinting into the secondary quite as often as he has been.

    Thoughts?

    I think it is about winning the game. WVU's weakness on defense is against the run. I think we run the ball differently and better with Williams at QB.

    I hope the offensive staff at Utah sat Tyler down with some video of Zach Moss during the Colorado game and said, "here is what Zach Moss does when he gets the ball and some rhythm carries vs. this is what Zach does when you pull the ball out and try to make a play on your own. Give Moss the damn ball!"

    I was just listening to Riley and Dolce pregame. Dolce pointed out that Huntley takes far too long to make the zone read, and it costs Moss momentum when he does get the ball. He said Troy W. makes the read much faster, and that Huntley has to get to that place. And of course he said Huntley needs to keep it much less.

    Reports are the Siosi Wilson and Chase Hansen are on the “out” list.

    Wow. West Virginia backup QB looks awful, so far. Almost as bad as our kick off team.

    I have a good friend who is at the game. His seats are four rows up basically at the 50 yard line. Cost him $20 a ticket. Is there even 500 people in the stadium?

    Happy Boxing Day Utahby5!

    As expected, attendance is indeed awful. Thanks, and I hope you had a great Christmas.

    good play call fake pitch and Hundley runs it in. That is how Hundley should run.

    Jack Tuttle can start practicing that one

    Both offense and defense lines came to play today.
