Three Utes make all-Pac-12 first team

Posted Nov 29th - 11:31am by

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. The Pac-12 Conference coaches selected a total of 11 Utes to the 2011 all-conference teams, placing three on the first team, two on the second team and awarding six honorable mention citations.

Senior offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom, junior defensive lineman Star Lotulelei and senior defensive lineman Derrick Shelby were voted to the first team, while junior running back John White and senior offensive lineman John Cullen made the second team. Shelby was one of just three players to make both the all-Pac-12 first team and the Pac-12 all-Academic first team, joining Stanford QB Andrew Luck and California OL Mitchell Schwartz.

Bergstrom, a three-year starting right tackle, leads Utah with an 85% overall grade, winning 491 of 579 assignments. Nine of Lotulelei's 38 total tackles were for a loss and he is tied for 13th in the Pac-12 in tackles for loss average (0.75) despite being double teamed on most plays. Shelby's 45 total tackles include 5.0 sacks and 9.0 tackles for loss and his seven pass breakups ranks first among the league's defensive linemen. He also scored two touchdowns on an interception return and a fumble recovery.

This week, Mike Grant and Robert Jackson preview the Utah-Washington State game and highlight the matchup between the Utes' secondary and Cougar quarterback Connor Halliday, who last week tossed for a mere 494 yards and 4 TDs in a Pac-12 Player of the Week performance against ASU.

SALT LAKE CITY - Don't look now, but Utah is still in the hunt for a Pac-12 South Division title.

The Utes (6-4) are peaking at just the right time, and with last week's win over UCLA, the Utes are bowl-eligible for the ninth consecutive season. Since a trip to the Liberty Bowl in 2003 under then head coach Urban Meyer, the Utes haven't been out of the postseason -a remarkable feat that has continued through all seven of Kyle Whittingham's seasons at the helm.

White running his way up Utes' season record lists

Posted Nov 15th - 1:03am by Robert Jackson, Sports Director

SALT LAKE CITY - While the snow fell at Rice-Eccles last Saturday, White was all over the field. Oh, and the white fluffy snow too. John White IV's performance gave him 1,191 rushing yards for the season, moving him up in the record books up on the hill.

The junior transfer from L.A. Harbor College ran for 167 yards against UCLA, giving him enough yards to surpass former Ute and Denver Bronco Mike Anderson for fourth best in school history for a single season.

SALT LAKE CITY - When the Utes took the field Saturday in Tucson, they donned white jerseys with black pants. Perhaps it's only fitting that Utah sported the new look, as John White IV rushed for video game-esque numbers and Conroy Black had an interception in the end zone to help seal the 34-21 win for the Utes.

Runnin' Utes ink five recruits for 2012

Posted Nov 9th - 3:49pm by

SALT LAKE CITY - The University of Utah men's basketball team signed five players who will join the Utes for the 2012-13 season, head coach Larry Krystkowiak announced Wednesday. The signing class includes high school seniors Josh Hearlihy, Jordan Loveridge and Justin Seymour, along with Southern Utah transfer Dallin Bachynski and returning LDS missionary Jeremy Olsen.

"All five of these players are championship people," said Krystkowiak. "These are the kinds of kids we want here to rebuild this program. They are `program kids' who will come here and represent Utah proudly. They are great students and great people from terrific families who will really boost our basketball team."

Football notes on Utah's win over Arizona

Posted Nov 7th - 12:52am by Mike Grant

TUCSON - Before the game as I was researching Arizona and in particular the offense, I was so impressed with Wildcats' quarterback Nick Foles that intimidation set in. I guess that is why I don't play football anymore.

He was tops in the nation from a quarterback stand point. He could throw, throw, throw. He had a receiver that could catch everything. I guess that is why they play the game.

I love the Utah defense. It is a sad reality when the defense has to feel like they have to shut out opponents to have a shot at winning, but that is where the Utes are. After the Cal game, where frustrations were running high, the challenge was issued to the defense that they need to shut everyone out. They haven't done that, but they have dominated since then. Against the Oregon State Beavers they were awesome and Saturday they got it done against one of the best offenses in the country. Nick Foles will get a chance to play in the NFL. The Utah defense pressured Foles, hit Foles, intercepted Foles and proved that they belong.

Football, basketball musings on transition to Pac-12

Posted Nov 5th - 4:58pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY - As frustrating as this football season might be, I don't share the same frustration. This is what I wanted. This is what we all wanted isn't it?

I am sure no Utah fan wanted to be 4-4 at this point in the season, but I think the Utes are what I thought they would be. I thought they would be pretty decent. I would have loved to see what they could have done the whole year with Jordan Wynn under center the entire year, but that is not realistic for Wynn. He has gotten nicked up every year.

This is what the PAC 12 is though. This is one of the top leagues in the country and it doesn't stop. Every week the teams just keep coming at you.

Utes' basketball receives transfer from SUU

Posted Nov 4th - 11:11am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY - Utah Head Coach Larry Krystkowiak has picked up another recruit.

What is the old adage in basketball, you can't teach size? Krystko picked him up some size for the future.

Dallin Bachynski has returned home from a mission in Croatia and has chosen to transfer from Southern Utah University, and according to his Facebook page he will be attending the University of Utah.

SALT LAKE CITY - Going into Saturday's game against Arizona, it should be no surprise what the offensive gameplan for Utah will be.

Run the ball with John White IV. A lot.

Coming off a 27-8 win over Oregon State, Utah's first Pac-12 win, Juan Blanco el Cuatro ran for 205 yards on 35 carries. He had 161 yards in the first half alone.

White carries Utes to first conference win

Posted Oct 31st - 8:55pm by Robert Jackson, Sports Director

SALT LAKE CITY - Hike. Handoff. Run. Repeat.

It may have been simple, but Utah's offensive formula proved enough to get the Utes their first Pac-12 victory, ending a four game conference losing skid to start their inaugural season in a BCS league.

John White IV carried the ball 35 times, piling up 205 yards in Utah's 27-8 win over Oregon State on Saturday.

SALT LAKE CITY - Coming off a 26-14 win over Pitt, the Utes return to Pac-12 play to face the Cal Golden Bears at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

It may not have been the prettiest victory, but Utah's win over the Panthers garnered one national and two Pac-12 player of the week awards.

"Defensively, I couldn't have asked for a better effort across the board," Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said.

Utah's defense dominates in East Coast win

Posted Oct 16th - 11:59pm by Robert Jackson, Sports Director

PITTSBURGH - Perhaps it is fitting that Utah's defensive performance on Saturday took place inside a stadium that is home to one of the greatest and most historic defenses in the NFL.

Utah held Pitt to just 120 total yards, forced three turnovers and sacked the two Panther quarterbacks six times in a 26-14 win at Heinz Field.

"I can't say enough about how our defense played," Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said. "The numbers were outstanding."

SALT LAKE CITY - It wasn't February 2nd, but last Saturday must have felt a lot like Groundhog Day for the University of Utah.

After committing five turnovers in their first Pac-12 home game against Washington, the Utes had a repeat performance the following week, turning the ball over five times in a 35-14 loss to Arizona State.

Through its first three games, Utah was +9 in turnover margin, but in the last two it was -9.

Utah QB Jordan Wynn to have season ending surgery

Posted Oct 10th - 8:08pm by

SALT LAKE CITY - Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn will have surgery on his left shoulder in the next 10 days to two weeks and will miss the remainder of the season. The decision was reached today after the third-year starter underwent a series of tests to re-evaluate the injury he suffered in the first half of Utah's loss to Washington on Oct. 1.

"Obviously, this is disappointing news for Jordan and the entire team," said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. "Jordan worked incredibly hard to come back from his shoulder surgery last winter and we are confident he will take the same approach with his rehab this time around. The good news is that he is eligible for a redshirt season."

SALT LAKE CITY - Fighting through adversity is one of the main themes that Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham preaches to his players.

Losing its first two conference games and its starting quarterback for at least two to three weeks provides plenty of adversity to overcome as Utah tries to rebound from a 31-14 home loss to Washington last week.

The schedule doesn't get any easier for the Utes, who play host to the South Division leader and 22nd ranked team in the nation on Saturday.

Utah Football: Jordan Wynn out 2-3 weeks

Posted Oct 3rd - 3:02pm by

SALT LAKE CITY -- The University of Utah announced Monday that starting quarterback Jordan Wynn will be sidelined for two to three weeks with a left shoulder injury.

Wynn will be re-evaluated at that time to determine if he is ready to return. Wynn, a junior in his third year starting, injured his non-throwing shoulder in the first half of Utah's game against Washington on Saturday.

Wynn will be replaced by junior Jon Hays. Hays joined the Utes in the summer after the team he initially signed with out of Butte College (Nebraska-Omaha) dropped its football program. He has played in two games this season, playing out the fourth quarter of Utah's rout over Brigham Young on Sept. 17 and playing the entire second half of last week's loss to Washington.
