    He isn't even close to the biggest hack, not that he is all that great. You seem to be forgetting we have Gordon Monson and PK in this market.

    Wilmore picks the UTES!

    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.

    I heard Kyle say just now that they are working to get Rising eligible this fall. That was news to me (but I don't follow recruiting closely).

    We got him. Maybe this is old news already. I just started paying attention.

    It's one thing to be an obvious pot stirrer like pk and monson. Its another to be completely unprepared and make stuff up. I'll pass on listening to any of them.

    Now, for all those who want to treat college athletes like professionals, we should start trading these kids, right? ASU could trade 1-2 of their new QBs for the RB who got away.

    Well, based on the projections from late last night or this morning, Utah and ASU basically swapped Juarez for Wilmore. Utah getting that deal without having to throw in a draft pick is a huge win.

    I legitimately think ASU offered that low 3 star LB kid just out of spite when they found out about Wilmore. No changing my mind about this. Sucks chodes

    Langi made the front page of the Idaho Statesman sports section again. Only way he gets that in SLC is part of the Bingham 3 or 4 with Wissler.

    So we are #1 in the PAC12 south. What Utah puts out in NFL players each year compared to the star rankings of the players we bring in has to make Utah one of the best player development programs out there.

    Utes land a grad transfer OL, Alex Locklear, from Marshall.

    6'5 340 lbs. 35 appearances, two starts.

    Any help on the o-line is appreciated and the kid may end up to be great, but I felt that all the BOOOOOOOM!!!! tweets may have been a tad overboard.

    Right - It certainly makes sense to hold spots open for grad transfers, no question. Is this an addition at the level of Manny Bowen? It's not immediately evident that it is.

    Hardly the stats of an impact transfer. This signing tells me the coaches did not see the kind of development they wanted to see from the young OL in spring ball. It causes me greater concern about the OL then I had before. I had the opportunity to sit in these post spring ball player evals. before. They are brutally honest and harsh looks at the ability of each player in the program to start, be a quality back-up, develop, etc. Decisions are made on which players should be encouraged to on where each player stands and whether they should be encouraged to look elsewhere. The same type of eval occurs at the end of the season. The position coach produces a 1 page eval on each player in his group that addresses his school performance, weight room/training performance, film study/position meeting habits, mental strengths/weaknesses, practice performance, team mate qualities and then an opinion of where the kid is now, where they could be in a year or two. This are then shared with all of the coaches and everyone who has an opinion on the eval has an opportunity to comment. Whit relies heavily on these at his end of year and end of spring meetings with each player.

    In Harding I trust, I guess.

    I was listening to Andy Phillips and Tom Hackett’s podcast Special Forces Gang that they do for KSL. In it, Andy mentioned that he had a kicker sort of fall into his lap that he has introduced to the coaches and program that he felt was a continued compliment to the special teams of the past. He didn’t say much more than that and isn’t going to name him yet, but he seemed optimistic, so I’ll take it.

    I gotta feel that this commitment has a little more clout than the last one.

    A tweet showed a photo of Luther Elliss recently visiting East HS. I guess he is the DL coach at Idaho and has been for a couple of years now. I did not know that. His son that we all hoped would come to Utah was a 2019 draft choice. I guess he ended up at Idaho as well.

    I think that was a different son. In fact, I think the fact that Utah took no interest in the older one who went to Idaho significantly hurt their chances at the other one who signed with an SEC school and went the JUCO route (not sure where he is now but it seems like it was only 1-2 years ago so I think his story is still being written somewhere).
