NFL draft preview: Utah

Posted Apr 21st - 4:18pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — The NFL draft begins this Thursday and for Utah fans this draft has to be one of the most exciting since 2005 when Alex Smith went first overall to the San Francisco 49ers.

It has been talked about day in and day out since the end of the football season where Star Lotulelei would go and when he would go. Early in the projection process he was slated to go first overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. Lately the mock drafts have Star going a little later to Philadelphia 4th overall, or even possibly even as late as 14th to the Carolina Panthers.

Reggie Dunn, Mr. Return Man Extraordinaire will also await his name this coming weekend. Utah fans will most likely have to wait deep into Saturday to hear his name if his name gets called at all.

SALT LAKE CITY — This week in the Crimson Corner we recap Utah's Red and White Game with highlights, postgame interviews and, as always, our analysis.


Utah football: Offense dominates Red and White scrimmage

Posted Apr 20th - 4:58pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — It has been a while since one coach has had more of an immediate impact on a program than co-offensive coordinator Dennis Erickson has had on Utah football this spring.

Both the Red and White team offenses put on quite a show show Saturday as the White team edged out the Red team 35-28 during the annual Red and White game Saturday in front of a rain drenched 8,537 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

The Red and White offenses seemed to score at will in the first quarter, taking the first five combined drives 65 yards for touchdowns.


Utah football: Spring practice, day 14

Posted Apr 18th - 8:49pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah wrapped up its last practice in preparation for Saturday's Red and White game Thursday afternoon at the practice fields.

The players went through a few walkthroughs and the coaches broke out the team into the Red and White rosters that we will see on Saturday.

One of the position groups that has excelled this spring has been the offensive line. We caught up with two of the anchors of the line, CJ Poutasi and Jeremiah Tofaeono. You can catch the interview in the player above, as well as Coach Kyle Whittingham's post practice remarks.

Utah football: Spring practice, day 13

Posted Apr 16th - 7:46pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — So much for that indoor football facility...

The Utes were once again outdoors in balmy conditions at Rice-Eccles, luckily Mike Grant let me borrow his beanie or I may not have survived.

Although the weather was downright chilly, the players were more crisp and concise than we've seen all spring.

Utah football: Running backs carry offense in second spring scrimmage

Posted Apr 13th - 5:17pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Over the last four weeks of practice, Utah's offense has been able to move the ball up and down the field.

That came to an abrupt end Saturday in the Utes' second spring scrimmage.

"We did not get enough chunk yardage plays today and our quarterbacks were not as effective as they need to be," Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said after the practice session. "It didn't help that we dropped some passes."

Utah football: Spring practice, day 11

Posted Apr 11th - 7:06pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — These are the dog days of spring practice with many things looking the same as the day before, a little groundhog day if you will.

The Utes were not in full pads taking in a bit of a lighter practice before the scrimmage on Saturday.

Here are five things that I noticed at practice today:


VIDEO: Possible Utah recruit Kenneth Ogbe YouTube Interview

Posted Apr 10th - 1:18pm by Mike Grant

I have received many questions about Kenneth Ogbe, a possible basketball recruit from Germany. I saw this interview from him a decided (with a slight nudge from @UofUMansir and @UofUUtes) to translate.

I am absolutely including a disclaimer - it has been 13 years since I have been in Germany and these guys are speaking very fast but from what I can tell, Ogbe is very well-spoken.

Question: Kenneth Ogbe, MVO of the NBBL All-Star game, the south has won five out of six, are you okay with that?


Utah football spring practice day 9 report, Red Rocks prepare for nationals

Posted Apr 9th - 6:45pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — Brrrrrr ... so much for the indoor practice facility.

The Utes practiced outdoors in Rice-Eccles Stadium on Tuesday. It was about 40 degrees outside. That was fun. From my vantage point it looked like it took the team a few reps to get warmed up in the cold as well.

One of the most interesting position battles continues to be the running back group with Lucky Radley, James (Bubba) Poole, and now Karl Williams. All three got some run with the first team and today, Bubba Poole was shredding the defense.

Utah football: Spring scrimmage recap, day 9

Posted Apr 5th - 9:03pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah competed its first spring scrimmage of 2013 Friday afternoon at Rice-Eccles Stadium under picture perfect weather conditions.

While the rain cleared out just in time for the 100-play scrimmage, the offense and defense each took their shots at proving which side of the ball is better thus far through three weeks of spring camp.

Utah's top three quarterbacks, returning starter Travis Wilson, sophomore Adam Schulz and true freshman Brandon Cox combined for 387 passing yards.

Utah football: Spring practice, day 8

Posted Apr 4th - 7:52pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah got back at it today on the practice field, a day before a 90-play scrimmage. The team was not in full pads but did have a spirited practice again emphasizing tempo.

All of the coaches were stressing the speed. Kyle Whittingham, Dennis Erickson, Brian Johnson and Dan Finn were trying to get the offense to move faster in between plays. Sitake, Shah, and Scalley were pacing the defense on the other side. As fast as the offense moves, the defense tried to get in position and adjust faster.

It is well-documented that the Utes are trying to make the offense more explosive. Robert Jackson and I spoke to Jake Murphy and he categorized explosive plays as 12 or more yards. Judging from practice the offense looked as if it would take a shot at a possible explosive play about every three downs.


Utah football: Spring practice, day 7

Posted Apr 2nd - 7:47pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Week three of spring practice is underway for the University of Utah, a week that is already off to a great start by the receivers.

WR Anthony Denham had a tremendous practice today, finding holes in the defense time and time again. With his 6'4 frame, he has big play potential written all over him. If he can continue to hold on to the ball like he did today, he shouldn't have a problem moving up the depth chart.

WR Dres Anderson showcased his speed by catching a simple slant before turning on the afterburners and racing to the corner of the endzone. During the tackle a cameraman got knocked down, and because no one got hurt, it is quite funny to watch over and over again. Be sure to check it out in the video player above.


Utah Spring Football – Day 6, Offense looked good

Posted Mar 30th - 2:18pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — Day six of spring football for the Utes and the offense shined highlighted by a couple of long QB/WR hookups.

The Utah coaches have spoken all spring about how Travis Wilson and also Adam Schulz have looked really good and in command of the offense.

It is apparently not too different to what they did last year but the players have really taken to what Coaches Dennis Erickson and Brian Johnson want to do.


The 1998 Runnin' Utes, looking back 15 years

Posted Mar 29th - 12:11pm by Mike Grant

It is hard to believe that it has been 15 years since the Utes made their run in the NCAA tournament in 1998, but it has.

Do you remember how the Utes got to the title game?

Here is a quick recap of each game:
