On Saturday we watched a practice from a frozen tundra at Rice-Eccles, where receivers dropped pass after pass and the team was rewarded with running wind sprints for the final 45 minutes of practice. Not only was Monday afternoon warmer, but the players looked significantly sharper out on the field.
You could hear the ooohs and ahhhs from every corner of the field. Travis Wilson dropped back, threw a dart over the middle when a window opened up for Quinton Pedroza after "Q" had burned the defense with the post and BAM! Eric Rowe, Utah's junior safety was standing at the goal line a walloped Pedroza.
Do the Utes have a chance? Yeah they have a chance!
The Utah basketball team is in Las Vegas for the PAC-12 tournament and they're full of confidence and realize that they have nothing to lose. With those two ingredients, plus some momentum from a great weekend, and a USC team in turmoil, that just might equal a win.
Remember when the Utes tore down their old facility just a short time ago? The new Utah football facility is going up fast. Robert Jackson and I are stoked about it and thanks to Director of Football Operations Jeff Rudy and the Utah football program, we went on a tour. We hope you are as excited as we are about it. Enjoy!
Known as one of the original architects of the spread offense, 23 year head coaching veteran Dennis Erickson was introduced to the media as the co-offensive coordinator for the Utes at a press conference at the University of Utah Wednesday.
Utah basketball has experienced more highs and lows this season than a roller coaster at Six Flags. They aren't bipolar, but certainly lack some sort of identity. A culture. A unifying cause to rally around. Just who are these guys?
