    By the way, has the transfer portal been a thing before? Great name, though: sounds like something from Star trek.

    So those we know are: Mariner (WR), Grant (OL), Thompson (LB), Dixon (OL). I've heard there are 3 or 4 additional players who have entered their names but not made it public and several more contemplating doing so.

    Another reason that Larry Krystkowiak should be fired.

    Hart (LB/DE). Repp has also been reported. Also Rex Jordan (DE) is a medical retirement.

    Let's all remember the portal is a new thing and some of these guys are definitely moving on while others may be experimenting to see who bites before they fully commit to transferring. I think you'll see some people (in general, not necessarily at Utah) enter the transfer portal before ultimately deciding to return to their original team.

    Also, it should be the "transfer database" and the "transfer portal" should be the sci-fi means by which they travel to their new school.

    I wonder if the KW will allow a kid to test the transfer waters and then return. My guess is that he will not. Your either all in or in the way.

    Per Kyle on Bill's show:

    Julian Blackmon has moved to Safety, and Bronson Boyd has moved to Corner.

    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.

    The grey helmets are the first helmets I remember seeing as a boy. I remember that the team would go through a tunnel at the north end of the stadium to the old Einer Nielson and I would stand there and ask for chinstraps. Those were fun days. I remember sneaking down the backside of the east stands from GA to play games at the south end of the stadium.

    The North End Zone folks now will have to purchase Crimson Club membership to keep their seats. Seems fair to me. It will increase Crimson Club membership form just over 6,000 to over 8,000.

    I wonder if the CC donations are down with the tax law changes making the donations no longer tax deductible. This would be one way to help make some of that up.

    I've seen a lot of beefing about the continued price increases. Many people are saying they are getting priced out. At some point, the cost is going to outweigh the demand. I hope the administration is getting good economic advice on how far they can push the increases.

    I can see why the U wants this but there is an everyman culture to the north endzone that may change. I'd hate to see that aspect of game day go away. I love having our "crazies" over there. Not only are they an incredible asset to the team when teams are buried at that end but they stir up the rest of us in key moments.

    My 4 tickets went up $232 this year. It will be interesting to see what happens when the stadium is expanded.
