    Utah's offensive line getting better thanks to stellar defensive line

    https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...sive-line.html

    The most interesting bit of the article was this though:

    One player who could become a starter is Bamidele Olaseni, a 6-foot-7, 330-pound JC transfer from Garden City (Kansas), who is expected to arrive on campus Wednesday after completing some academic work. Both Whittingham and Harding have indicated it's not a sure thing he'll be ready by Wednesday, but once he does come in, Olaseni could quickly get on the field for the Utes.

    Looks like there's no black! Two color is really the way to go for us.

    Red/white with one black/white per year. It's so easy and obvious.

    I saw an athlon uniform ranking a couple weeks ago that put us at 9th in the Pac-12. And it was right. Just drop to two colors, and we immediately jump to 5th or 6th.

    That helmet is silver, possibly the pants too. So there is your 3rd color. We'll be mistaken for Thetm Ohio St

    Here’s a picture of the originals. The Ohio State didn’t wear a silver helmet until 1969, so we did it first.

    I love all the new and retro uniform combinations. Super fun for the fans and players.

    Can you imagine how great the NCAA Football video game would be now with all these uniform combos?

    Mufi Hunt, a high four star recruit from Brighton (I think), has announced he is transferring from Michigan State to the U. He's walking on.

    The Eastern Time Zone Curse strikes again for Utah high school football.

    Another big boy. I hope he adds to our embarrassment of riches on the DL. He can play immediately this season.

    Yeah, but I'm not sure he'll play; his career has been one injury after another.

    First Miami steals "The U" and now Ohio State steals our uniforms.

    When will these hangers on stop trying to steal our stuff?

    More football talk, please! You can even talk about not scheduling the Y anymore, firing Whittingham, Manny Bowen's can't miss business opportunity, etc. I need some football talk!

    Not sure where's a good place to talk about this, but football season starts next week. The preseason AP poll came out today and had Utah ranked #14 team in the country. Seems like we could have a pretty talented squad put together this year. Other teams of interest in the poll: Oregon #11, Washington #13, Washington State #23, and Stanford #25.

    The ACC has only two teams in the AP25. Not sure why the PAC12 gets so much heat, when outside Clemson, the ACC is terrible.

    Reputations are built on titles, and the ACC has won them recently. When conferences are judged, only the top matters.

    Clemson will once again demolish the ACC. We know somebody from the SEC will get into the Playoff. Ohio St. and Oklahoma are both ranked ahead of all PAC teams. Oregon plays Auburn, Stanford plays Northwestern, UCF and Notre Dame, ASU plays Michigan St. and USC plays ND. Unfortunately, I don't see anybody with a schedule that is going to get them into the Playoff unless that team has one fewer loss than the other conference winners.

    One question I will be hoping to see answered very soon is whether this team has the killer instinct. Will they put opposing teams away early?

    I hope if happens often, but, really, how many teams on our schedule are teams we should be putting away early? 2? 3?
