    A 62 yard field goal from Matt Gay in the scrimmage on Saturday. Not too shabby.

    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.

    Also, Bernard has officially joined the team.

    Whittingham said Matt Gay hit a 62-yard field goal during the scrimmage, and added that he hit two more today. Troy Taylor added that his kick on Saturday easily could have gone for 70.

    ...

    it's going to be unbelievable when we line up to kick field goals on the other side of midfield

    Wow. ESPN gives the South no respect. They rank the South ninth out of nine divisions reviewed. They don’t even mention Utah.

    PAC-12 South
    Teams: Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado, UCLA, USC, Utah
    Average FPI: 6.1

    Talk about uncertainty in a division! There is a whole mess of it in the Pac-12 South, with USC as the lone team in the division in the preseason power rankings. Add in that Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA are all dealing with new head coaches and you can see why this division comes in last. The Trojans were the only team in the division to finish with more than seven wins in 2017, and it seems as though it's going to take some time to get those numbers up. Chip Kelly is looking for a new quarterback at UCLA after Josh Rosen's departure and could start true freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Kevin Sumlin and Herm Edwards have their quarterbacks at Arizona and Arizona State, respectively, but both have a lot of work to do with the rosters outside of that position. If USC can find its quarterback after Sam Darnold's departure for the NFL, the Trojans should be in great shape, but the rest of the division has too many questions going forward.

    Shameful to see what little homework gets done by "the" national sports outlet. Oh well, it's on Utah to make them look like morons.

    Guessing there’s some payback for the Pac-12 ignoring ESPN’s little shindig this year.

    Francis Bernard already making his presence felt among the quarterbacks. I have to admit, pictures from yesterday and today show he’s in a lot better shape than what I was afraid of after seeing him last week in a frumpy sweatshirt.

    My wife and I went to Fan Fest last night. It was the first time I had ever gone. It was a lot of fun and the atmosphere was great. We ran into Ma’ake right off the bat, and it was great to see him. (Although he and exchange opposing views on politics, we are buds.) He said the attendance was the most he had ever seen. The band was playing in the end zone all night and the enthusiasm of those kids was infectious. They were clearly having a lot of fun.

    The longest autograph lines were for Tyler Huntley and Chase Hanson. Chase’s was the longest by far:

    Fan Fest was a blast. Glad you got to go. I had my 3 kids (ages 7 to 2.5 months) . it was fun to see the two older ones light up as the athletes talked to them. One of the Womens hoops players asked them their names and then wrote a quick message on their posters.

    "Couple of notable teams that did not make the poll:

    In the BCS/CFP era, Utah has had 5 seasons when it started unranked but finished ranked and ZERO seasons when it started ranked/finished unranked. No other team has that ratio."

    It's weird. I'm not sure what it will take for Utah to get some measure of respect nationally. I understood it in the MWC, but you'd think by now it would make less and less sense to keep us out of a pre-season T25.

    Here are the immutable USA population facts:

    Eastern Standard Time Zone: 150.2 million (47.1%)
    Central Standard Time Zone: 92.3 million (29.0%)
    Mountain Standard Time Zone: 21.3 million (6.7%)
    Pacific Standard Time Zone: 53.0 million (16.6%)

    This is one reason why I am proud of what Utah accomplishes. Among other things, money and attention flow to the places where the most eyeballs live. It’s amazing we do as well as we do. It’s also probably the main reason why joining the PAC-12 was the most important event in the history of University of Utah sports, not to mention of the University itself; and one of the more important events in the history of the State of Utah as well.

    Sure, they are all great. Although we are talking about sustained competitiveness with limited resources. The only other one on your list that merits praise for doing that is Fat Rick; as Fat Rick is the greatest basketball coach of all-time at Utah, so too is Kyle W the best football coach of all-time. And it's not even close.

    No argument on any of that. I just don’t think any one person got Utah in.

    You also have to give Pershing (and others in the Admin bldg) a lot of credit. Getting our academic standing looking better contributed.
