    Saturday morning I woke up and checked ESPN for the time of the Ute game, as I do every Saturday morning this time of year. It said Utah 41 UCLA 10. Surreal. Game over. 41-10; again. 41 points two weeks in a row and the third time. 42 and 40 points in the preceding week. For a moment I wondered if I was a victim of a practical joke by LAUte. What is going on with these wins and these point totals? Weird.

    Now wait until USC or UW try to hire him away. Their OC's arent working out so well.

    I was thinking about that over the weekend. If his wild success continues he will have offers. Think about it -- he'll be the guy who finally unleashed the Utah defensive juggernaut by adding an offense that works.

    Good article on Zach Moss from Draft Wire. Solid quote.

    I get a certain level of satisfaction from wearing out the defense and imposing my will on them. I enjoy watching them quit play by play. That’s when they start to understand they don’t even wanna play with you.

    Aren’t we all pretty used to early departures to the draft by players like Moss? (Garett Bolles, for example.) I’d love to see Moss stay but he’s got to do what’s right for him. I hope he follows the Devonte Booker path.

    Sure, he's good with rbs, dlineman and has a pretty strong record on DBs. But that new back would need to be seasoned (like moss). It took two years of medicore/decent moss before this year's version of moss. Call me selfish, but I want one more yr.

    Shyne has another year.

    TJ Green has shown flashes.

    Devonte Henry-Cole will be back next year.

    I don't think Green or DHC are every back downs. They are more change of pace guys, although Green could surprise us. His body is much better than it was when he came in. Shyne just seems to have lost a step, I don't think we want to rely on him as a primary back. I think we might need Brumfield or a newcomer (possibly Micah Bernard).

    Hopefully Moss hasn't paid any attention to what has happened (or not happened) to Bryce Love this year and sees no risk of coming back for his senior year.

    I don't know anything about pass protection from these guys. Actually, I don't know how good Moss is on that either.
    Moss is pretty damn good at pass pro (both in identifying and executing). He misses a few blitz reads here and there but he's generally pretty solid.

    I don't like what I've seen from Shyne this year. He is terrible in pass protection and as Scratch notes he has lost a little juice. It's probably understandable given his injury and wanting to be cautious, but if he were our go-to guy we would be in trouble. DHC is what he is - a speedster. I don't see him as an top guy; he's more of a change-of-pace guy.

    Green, on the other hand, is intriguing to me. He's a RS freshman so there is room to grow, his body is better than when he arrived (good sign both on the genetics side and the work ethic side), and some of his runs he has displayed a burst that I didn't know that he had. I have hope for him. But, there would be serious growing pains with him as #1.

    Official Utah Utes 2018 Football Season Thread

    After the ASU game, and looking at the bright side of life, the Utes and Whitt still have a chance to get the November Monkey off their backs. We could still see something completely different and have a standout season. Here’s why.

    1. Their next 3 games are very winnable. (It’ll be interesting to see how Vegas responds to Huntley being hurt.)

    2. Shelley doesn’t have to be Huntley for the Utes to win, he just has to do a solid job. We can go to war with the QB we have and do well.

    3. There’s a lot for everyone to learn from the loss.

    • The defense will take a serious look at the ASU game film and now will feel like they have something to prove.

    • The O-line and WRs will too.

    • And yes, the coaches also. Although many of us here seem to want to give Whitt and his staff yet another pass, does anyone here doubt that the coaches are feeling horrible about being upset so badly in such an important game, or that they’re not painfully aware of the November thing?)

    4. The Ute players and coaches are all high character guys and they’re staring serious adversity in the face. They’ve dealt well with such tests so far this year.

    We have plenty to cheer for. I’ll be at the Oregon game loudly singing “Utah Man.”

    With our defense giving up huge passing plays all year, it feels like we need to outscore opponents and/or control the clock. I just don't see how it happens now. The defense will have to step up in a big way.
    I am hoping that he'll settle down with time. He understandably looked scared against ASU.

    So the standings in the pac 12 south Here's a look at all of their remaining Pac12 Schedules and projected finish ()

    Utah 4-3 (6-3)
    Ore
    @Colo

    USC 4-3 (5-4)
    CAL
    @UCLA

    Zona 4-3 (5-4)
    @Wazzu
    ASU

    Colo 2-4 (3-6)
    Wazzu
    Utah
    @Cal

    ASU 3-3 (4-5)
    UCLA
    @Ore
    @Zona

    UCLA 2-4 (2-7)
    @ASU
    USC
    Stan


    I'm thinking ASU loses at Oregon and at AZ
    I'm also thinking USC Loses to Cal

    If We end up in a 3 way tie with AZ and USC we win the south
    If we end up in a 4 way tie with ASU and ASU's loss is to AZ then ASU is the champ (Record vs the other 3 puts Utah and ASU at 2-1 then ASU with the tiebreaker)
