    My way too early predictions for starting WR’s:

    Boyd and Thompson on the outside.

    Nacua and Covey on the inside.

    This WR group is loaded. Just absolutely stacked. It’s crazy to look at the talent we have at that position right now.

    I was right once. Years ago. Felt good, but a little scary.

    Technically he said 50/50, so I'm only going to give you half a gloating point.

    No, but here is his comment last night about Singleton leaving:


    Rae doesn’t love it here – never really did. He wants to go back to Texas which is closer to home for him. Not sure about family issues but if that’s what he said then I’ll accept that.He called Texas, Texas Tech and TCU. TCU told him no…the other two told him they would have a spot for him.Here’s my opinion on Rae…Top 3 round NFL talent. I swear he’s that good but he didn’t play the entire game because he was tired and couldn’t go. Awful…I mean awful conditioning. One of the laziest players we’ve ever had come through here. That sounds like sour grapes because he’s on his way out…not true. With his talent he should be a Carrington type guy – period and everybody sees it.I hope that a change of scenery helps him find that work ethic because if it does he is a next level guy.I said a few weeks back and Utah said it above:Thompson and Boyd outside and Simpkins, Covey and Nacua inside next year.I believe that Rae would have lost the starting role but would have played plenty. With Hampton and Wilson as the 2’s and hopefully with an addition or two in the next few weeks we are plenty deep and plenty talented. Not sure how Covey comes back this first year but he’s a gamer so he’ll be in the mix for sure.No other players that get significant time are leaving at this point.

    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.

    A couple quick thoughts....odd move to get playing time

    And anyone who says there’s no contact between schools and players has their head buried in the sand.

    Yep...if he goes to Nevada, nobody bats an eye...Michigan at least makes you think he had a conversation beforehand.

    Given that players who redshirt often graduate early, is there any reason to redshirt an incoming freshman?

    I don’t think that changes too much anyways. If they can see the field, then let them play.

    I think what it does is if you have a senior that has value rated at 77/100 and a true freshman rated between 73-80/100, in years past you’d redshirt him.

    Nowadays, you’d play him.

    Also, one of Whitt successes is he graduates kids. He keeps kids here during the summer and enrolled in school. The by product is that a lot of kids graduate early, after only three years in the program. The downside is, you give kids a chance to leave where at other schools they wouldn’t even graduate (Tui’kolovatu).

    As much as that sucks, I’d rather do the good and lose some kids. I love what Whitt has done and being at the top of the PAC-12 in APR is a HUGE part of that.

    Lol. You really are something.

    Also, Pease was on the radio Monday. When asked if Utah would miss Hughes at all, Pease said not at all.

    Riley then said, is it because he wouldn’t start or does Utah have the depth that even with injuries they wouldn’t miss Hughes.

    Pease said that even with injuries he wouldn’t be missed. That he’s never seen so much talent in Utah’s secondary.

    So, you have multiple people with ties to the U vs applejack.

    You decide who you want to believe.

    I don't understand why this has to be someone's right and someone's wrong. Utah, there's no question Hughes would not have started but there's also no question that he would have helped us as a rotation corner back. In the case of injury, he may have become a starter. The kid did some terrific things for us last season. I also love that he's taken care of academics and worked himself up the depth chart while at Utah. While you give credit to Kyle for having a system that graduates players, let's not forget the players' role. They are putting in the work. I don't like losing players who demonstrate that kind of ethic. I understand it and I wish him well.

    Isn't he going as a graduate transfer? If so, he probably is in a grad program of some kind at Michigan, and he gets the first year's tuition paid along with the chance at a Michigan graduate degree. If he were my kid that'd be a no-brainer.

    Yes to be part of Michigan grad school fraternity is truly life changing.

    I guess, but he could get the first year's tuition paid in a graduate program at Utah, too. Depending on the program, on how he feels about living in SLC vs Ann Arbor, how he feels about playing time, position coaches, friends, weather, and being a part of a historical Rose Bowl Utah team, it's not entirely a no-brainer.

    He gets a shot to start at safety at Michigan vs fighting to see the field here.

    I think it’s a no brainer for him. I hope he does well, even though I grew up hating Michigan. Trash, those lot I tell ya.

    I admit "no-brainer" was overstated. But it would weigh heavily in favor of going, even if he wants to settle in SLC eventually. An out-of-state grad degree from a top school has more luster in Utah than a home-based one.

    1) Utah will win more games than Michigan next year, and...

    2) It won't matter one bit for Casey Hughes, because he will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear/feel 107,000 people simultaneously cheer for him. That alone has to be an ethereal experience.

    Oh, and grad school/change of scenery/different experience will all be good for him as well.

    Coach Whitt is still high on Jack Tuttle, hopes to see good things this spring. Huntley is up to 195 pounds. Covey will not participate in spring ball. Gary Anderson will help coach the d-line with Lewis Powell.

    Man, I haven’t been this excited for any coach or player since Erickson was added to the staff.

    It’s so nice to have Gary back. It’s funny how many said he’d never be back at Utah. Ha ha.

    A great coach. We are lucky to have him.

    Scalley has done a great job at DC the last two years. I can’t wait to see what he can do with a Gary led DL.

    Also said he is a proven commodity and no need to put that at risk.

    Yeah he’s not home until 3/7 I believe. Way too late to be enrolled
