  1. I just purchased my flight to Tampa and hoping there are still tickets available with the Crimson Club group. Otherwise, I’m sitting in the middle of Florida fans. Florida is reloading with a new coach. They will be tough. I expect our team to be ready as Kyle is a great preparation coach. Our offense will be really good and our defense is always good. We picked up a great linebacker from Florida (ironically) that was their best tackler. Humidity is the great equalizer. Very little humidity in SLC. Looking forward to this trip.
  2. I hope your prediction is wrong. It’s been a rumor for a few days. I believe it will be played.
  3. We start our first game playing Florida in Gainesville. SUU, SDSU (there will be payback) and then our NINE game conference schedule.
  4. Utah has picked up two stud Tight Ends in the transfer portal. Our neighbor has a son on the Utah team. His son is a 6’ 7”, 320 pound freshman that is quick but still learning how to play his position. He was an all state basketball player in Arizona two years ago. As he bulked up, he received offers from all over the country. His family recently moved to Utah with his business and to be closer to his son. He mentioned that one of the new transfers coming to Utah is bigger and faster than his son. Bright future for sure in SLC.

    Rose Bowl

    Mark Harlan (AD) was on the radio today and said there will be over 60,000 Utah fans attending the Rose Bowl. This is what happened when we went to the Fiesta Bowl. This will be Rice Eccles South. It will be extremely loud and one sided for Utah as it appears Ohio State isn’t as excited to be playing in this game. NC or bust is their mantra. How would it be? Utah is playing everyone and it sounds like some of OSU’s starters won’t be playing to not risk injury. OSU may get their ass whooped. Utah’s big goal in becoming part of this conference was to win the Rose Bowl.
  6. Half expecting Noah Sewell of Oregon to come back home.

    Rose Bowl

    I just purchased our tix. There should be a donation slip with these tickets. I bent over big time. $410 each ticket and $47 in fees. I feel hollow. Utah will represent big time. Seeing charter planes and busses are being advertised. 31 yard line and 50 rows back. That puts me about 100 yards away from the action. It’s the worst stadium (for watching games) in the country. Hoping Rose Bowl eventually moves to new stadium.
  8. Listening to Whit, our Utes will be better next year. I’m already planning my trip to Gainsville to beat Florida next year and will n the PAC 12 again.
  9. What could have been? I don’t know if there are 5 teams playing better than Utah right now. With all the death, qb drama, etc., this has to be be of the biggest turnarounds in our program and the most satisfying. I see that we are 6.5 point underdogs. Utah is going to win and it will be my second favorite win. 1. Alabama win. 2. TCU win in 2008 3. Winning the Fiesta 4. All wins against BYU 5. All wins against USC 6. All wins against Oregon
  10. Where could Cristobal go that is the furthest city from Eugene? Done deal. Will Chip bring the old crew back? (all speculation)
  11. I’m at the game. Poor showing for Duck fans and team.
  12. Like life, everything changes. “Ever” is a long time. I believe USC will return to their glory. They have talent but no leadership in the past 10 years. With NIL, a few schools will stay relevant. Oregon will be there as long as Nike keeps funding.
  13. It’s official now. Riley to USC.
  14. Best move by this conference was to get this game out of Santa Clara. Utah will have over 35,000 fans at this game. We have sold all our allotment and having a hard time finding tix on the Utah side. Interstate 15 will be painted red. It would be something to sell out all 68,000 seats. I’ve got my six for the game. Hoping for another beat down of Oregon. I expect this game to be much closer.
  15. I enjoyed my first experience to the Rose Bowl but it isn’t convenient for UCLA, their fans or anyone else. I thought Pasadena was closer to UCLA.
  16. There is nothing like a live college football football game. I am reading an article in the Montgomery News about fan increases this year over past years. It mostly has to do with all of us being locked up for the past 18 months and people are excited to get out of the house. The article gives P5 stats and expects these numbers to increase 10% for most teams. SEC 72,735 BIG10 65,408 BIG12 55,992 ACC 48,381 PAC12 47,082 With the Big 12 imploding, it would be great if we could pass up the ACC and Big12 in attendance (if it exists) over the next few years. 2019 average per team and stadium capacity Arizona 39,532 50,782 ASU 49,166 53,999 Cal 42,162 62,467 Colorado 47,182 50,183 Oregon 53,591 54,000 Oregon State 32,424 43,154 Stanford 37,018 50,424 UCLA 43,489 92,542 USC 59,358 77,500 Utah 46,462 46,200 (moving to 51,444 in 2021) Washington 68,238 70,083 Washington State 28,541 32,952 I watched to coaches speak at the PAC 12 media days. Most talked about renewed fan interest and ticket sales increasing. Hope springs eternal. Hoping Covid and our government don’t ruin it for us
  17. All programs cheat. There are hundreds of rules and most universities have less than 1 NCAA rules conduct staff on their campus. With hundreds of athletes and coaches, they catch very little. Cheating is rampant in sports and most recruits know that they can receive additional benefits above the standard scholarship. ASU fired all coaches that weren’t in agreement with bringing in recruits during the pandemic. Did the main coaches believe the fired staff would sit on their hands after they were shown no loyalty?
  18. All teams cheat in some fashion. It appears that ASU took it to another level and all the coaches that were fired recently fueled this fire. Will any coaches at ASU coaches survive this mess? How many players are about to leave Tempe?
  19. I sold my house in April to a Californian that left San Jose for a “better standard of living”. He paid full price and is happy about the move. We went to dinner (actually sat down) last night. He is a software engineer for Qualtrics. Apparently many more Californians will be moving here this year and although many Utahns are not happy about it. I, personally think it is ok. Traffic is the only downfall in my opinion. Taxes and safety were his reasons for leaving. According to the buyer, leaving California is a topic that is discussed a lot from Californians. Arizona, Utah and Texas are the States most discussed.
  20. Against my better judgement, I’m choosing OSU over ASU.
  21. I’m surprised USC went out of the Trojan bubble to hire an AD.
  22. Crazy week in this silly league.
  23. As you don't know a single person that started with pot and moved on to harder drugs means it didn't happen? You are a true idiot in every sense of the word. I have a family member that fits that description. I donate parts of my profits to drug prevention and work with groups that fit that description. I speak at Indian reservations, juvenile centers and most fit this bill. Alcohol falls into the same realm but for you to blather (as you usually do in most posts) as if you have any clue regarding this subject is laughable. Just shut up for once!
  24. It could start with anything that temporarily relieves pain. I do know that meth users use other drugs before using meth. We also find many meth homes with grow rooms. Meth by day (many contractors and truck drivers) and calm down with some weed.
