Night with the Runnin' Utes

Posted Oct 25th - 12:37am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — The Night with the Runnin' Utes is an annual thing that I always like to attend. I find it a sort of a rebirth, something that the Utes need most right now. And Wednesday night in the Huntsman Center, an entirely new cast of Utah basketball was born.

The Utes are getting a much needed new start after the worst season in school history, but let's be honest, they didn't belong. Larry Krystkowiak needed a new bunch to build with and from what I saw Wednesday night, that might be possible.

From the first possession the freshman Jordan Loveridge was a player teammates were looking for to take the shot, to put them on his back and carry them.

Crimson Corner: Future Ute Conner Manning leads team to impressive victory

Posted Oct 16th - 2:43pm by Robert Jackson

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. — While the football team may have lost this past weekend to UCLA, the Utah coaching staff was able to witness an incredible comeback highlighted by future Ute Conner Manning.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound quarterback lead the El Toro Chargers to a 41-31 come-from-behind win over nationally ranked Tesoro last Friday. And with the Utes just 70 miles north in Pasadena preparing to face the Bruins, head coach Kyle Whittingham and receivers coach Aaron Roderick were able to witness Manning throwing for 281 yards and four touchdowns.

While the quarterback's numbers were great, it may have been a catch that happened right in front of his future coaches that impressed them the most. Trailing 31-27, Manning handed the ball off to teammate Jacob Furnari, who ran to the right before throwing into the end zone to a wide open Manning, his first ever receiving touchdown.

PASADENA — Utah fans wanting to see more of freshman quarterback Travis Wilson, today is your lucky day.

Crimson Corner: QB controversy on the hill?

Posted Oct 9th - 1:37pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — It was a beautiful fall morning. The leaves were slightly swaying in the cool breeze, contrasting with the blue sky. Fall football - no better way to spend an October morning.

Then, Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham rocked the Utes football world.

Crimson Corner: Tuesday practice report

Posted Sep 11th - 7:12pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — With or without Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn, the show will - and must - go on.

The Utes face a tough BYU team that has cracked into the AP Top 25 poll and ranks tenth nationally in total defense.


Crimson Corner: Wynn fought the good fight, gave it his all

Posted Sep 10th - 4:39pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Sometimes things just don't go your way.

Like that new business venture that you keep convincing yourself isn't just any other multi-level marketing ploy, or the time that your car gets hit by an errant driver going 40 mph in a parking lot, life has a way of throwing challenges and adversity at us on a daily basis.

Unfortunately for Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn, that adversity has become too great, and after a fourth shoulder injury in the last three years, Wynn is stepping away from the game of football.

Utah football: Can Star Lotulelei be a better NFL draft prospect than Ndamukong Suh?

Posted Sep 4th - 4:11pm by Dan Snyder, Bleacher Report

Come next April, one of the most talked about players will most certainly be Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei.

The 6'4", 325-pound senior stuffer is one of the most intriguing prospects from the defensive side of the ball to come along in quite some time. His unique blend of size, speed and athleticism is rare to find, so teams will be lining up to get a look at him.

The last time there was this much hype surrounding a defensive tackle was in 2010, when Ndamukong Suh hit the scene. The Nebraska stand-out impressed with a strong senior season and an out-of-this-world combine on his way to becoming the second overall pick.

Crimson Corner: Northern Colorado breakdown with Tom Kirkland

KSL-TV's Tom Kirkland (@tksportsbeat) joined Mike Grant and Robert Jackson to break down the Utes' first game against Northern Colorado and a quick look ahead to the matchup with Utah State.

Utah kept Northern Colorado from crossing midfield en route to a 41-0 shutout win. What did they do well? What areas of concerns did we see? Should we be worried about QB Jordan Wynn?


Game day grades: Utah vs. Northern Colorado

Posted Aug 30th - 11:21pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — During fall camp, it was apparent that this defensive front four for Utah could be something special.

After Thursday's 41-0 shutout win over Northern Colorado that opinion was only solidified.

How did the Utes different position groups fare? Here are my game day grades:


Twitter roundup: Utah vs. Northern Colorado

Posted Aug 30th - 10:01pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's season opener against Northern Colorado got off to a slow start, which caused the fans, and me, to start second guessing our game predictions.

At the end of the first quarter, the Utes and Bears were stuck in a scoreless tie. The Utes lone chance at points was in a drive that ended with an underthrown ball from Jordan Wynn intended for Dres Anderson that was intercepted.

I asked Ute fans whether or not they saw the slow start coming. @4thand1sports replied, "Slow start? Yes. Crazy effort from UNC? Yes. Worst underthrow ever for INT? No."


Instant observations: Utah 41, UNC 0

Posted Aug 30th - 8:34pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah may have started slow, but once the engines were firing on all cylinders it never looked back en route to a 41-0 win over Northern Colorado Thursday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Although there isn't much you can take away from playing an FCS team that hasn't won a game since 2010, here are a few instant observations from the season opener:

1. Utah's defensive line is good, I mean really good
Alright, so that might be like saying the water is wet or that the sun is bright, but still, watching the Kruger brothers, Nate Fakahafua and Star Lotulelei bullrush offensive linemen time and time again was unreal. Pinned back at their own 3 yard line, UNC tried to do a dive to the right side. Lotulelei broke the play up for a loss of two. Need a pass breakup? Fakahafua had two knockdowns at the line of scrimmage. The Utes held UNC to just 114 yards and didn't let the Bears cross midfield.

SALT LAKE CITY — Going into a season opener must be one of the most difficult tasks for a coaching staff. After an entire offseason practicing against your own squad, how will you match up against other opponents?
