Utes' Whittingham demolishes old athletic center

Posted Mar 27th - 1:15pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY - Out with the old, in with the new.

Utah head football coach Kyle Whittingham helped demolish the old football center Tuesday to make room by a new football facility.

"That was exhilarating, without a doubt," Whittingham said with a grin after tearing down pieces of the former Dee Glen Smith Center with an excavator.


From the Stands: Spring impressions two days into Utes' camp

Posted Mar 23rd - 10:15am by Shane Roberts, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY — It's not real football yet, but boy-oh-boy is it beautiful to behold. Spring football is upon us up on the hill and after the first couple days there are a couple things to be really excited about.

First of all this spring is so much different than just a year ago. Last year was a giant circus for the first couple of days. It was the inaugural season of Pac-12 participation, Norm Chow was new on campus, and Jordan Wynn was coming off shoulder surgery. Well, two of those things are different this year, but more on Wynn later.


Crimson Corner: Quarterback U? Five Utes impress on day 1

Posted Mar 20th - 9:55pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY - It may still be March, but football kicked off Tuesday for the University of Utah.

The Utes held their first spring practice in a sunny, yet chilly Rice-Eccles Stadium. And while I was worried about staying in the sunlight to keep my hands warm while tweeting updates, it was Utah's quarterbacks that lit up the field with quite an impressive outing.

"We have a very talented group of quarterbacks," Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said.

Posted Mar 20th - 12:42pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY - Football is back. The regular season may still be over five months away, but the Utes are set to start the first of 15 spring practices today at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Lots of questions are surrounding this year's camp.

How will Brian Johnson, the nation's youngest offensive coordinator, structure the offense?


From the Stands: Utah spring football preview

Posted Mar 16th - 11:01am by Shane Roberts, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY — After a gloomy January, February, and March, finally Ute fans have something to get excited about. Spring football is here!

I for one love spring football. It gives the fans and media a glimpse at what the 2012 season could hold. What do the new incoming players look like? What will the new coaches bring to the fold? And frankly don't we all miss football?

SALT LAKE CITY - Ah, the feeling of spring. Temperatures climbing into the mid-60s this week can only mean one thing - spring football is right around the corner.


3 in the Key: Moral victories? No such thing

Posted Feb 17th - 11:20am by Jimmy Soto, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY - Each week, ksl.com's Robert Jackson asks Jimmy Soto three questions about the state of the University of Utah basketball program.

Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak isn't about moral victories. But yet again, the Utes found themselves on the losing end of two more oh-so-close games in Arizona last week.

The Runnin' Utes shot 50 percent from the floor and 50 percent from 3-point range Saturday against Arizona, but were shut out in the final five minutes of the game to fall to Arizona, 70-61, in a game they played much closer than the final score would indicate.


Coach Davis leaves Utes for Gators

Posted Feb 13th - 6:58pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — First it was Urban. Dan followed. Now it is Tim's turn.

Utah has lost yet another coach to the University of Florida.

Offensive line coach Tim Davis is heading to Gainsville to take the same position with the Gators.


Utes go big on signing day

Posted Feb 2nd - 9:39am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY -- "We took care of our basic needs." Head Coach Kyle Whittingham said as he addressed the media Wednesday afternoon.

So what were the needs? Lineman is the short answer but there is nothing short, nor small for that matter, about the commitments Utah picked up on National Signing Day.

16 of the 28 recruits are linemen for Whittingham's newest group. He admitted that "the Utes needed to get bigger." The tallest is Davis High School commit Zach Lindsay at 6'7". He only weighs 327 lbs. though.


3 in the Key: Curing the road blues

Posted Jan 27th - 12:54pm by Jimmy Soto, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY - Each week, ksl.com's Robert Jackson asks Jimmy Soto three questions about the state of the University of Utah basketball program.

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

Coming off a season-best performance last Saturday in a win over Arizona State, the Utes succumbed to another road drubbing Thursday night, this time to the Bruins of UCLA.


3 in the Key: Getting out of a shooting slump

Posted Jan 18th - 4:22pm by Jimmy Soto, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY - Each week, ksl.com's Robert Jackson asks Jimmy Soto three questions about the state of the University of Utah basketball program.

Last week, the Utes went on the road to take on two of the top teams in the Pac-12. Utah fought hard, but eventually lost to Stanford 68-65, then got taken to the woodshed in Berkeley, losing to Cal 81-45.

Against the Golden Bears, the Utes shot just 50% from the free throw line and 27% from the three point line. What can the Utes do to "get the ball to go in the hoop"?


Josh Watkins dismissed from Runnin' Utes

Posted Jan 18th - 11:41am by Robert Jackson, KSL.com Sports Director

SALT LAKE CITY — After a second violation of team rules, Josh "Jiggy" Watkins has been dismissed from the Utah Utes basketball team.

"The well being of our program will always come first," Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak said in a written statement issued Wednesday morning. "The integrity of our program as a whole cannot be sacrificed for any individual."

Watkins was the Utes' leading scorer this season, averaging 15.6 points and just under 5 assists per game.


3 in the Key: Utes' success depends on controlling the tempo

Posted Jan 12th - 12:22pm by Jimmy Soto, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY - Each week, ksl.com's Robert Jackson asks Jimmy Soto three questions about the state of the University of Utah basketball program.

Last week, the Runnin' Utes (4-11) picked up their first Pac-12 conference win, beating Washington State 62-60 in overtime. The Utes also lost a hard fought contest to Washington, 57-53.

What a difference just a few days can make. A week before, Utah lost to Colorado by 40. How were the Utes able to turn things around so quickly?

Utes to keep drum and feather logo

Posted Jan 3rd - 3:18pm by Robert Jackson, KSL.com Sports Director

SALT LAKE CITY - The University of Utah has decided to keep its drum and feather logo, at least for now.

After an initial report by ksl.com Friday indicating that the school would phase out the iconic logo after the Sun Bowl, the university released an official statement Tuesday.

"The University of Utah and its athletics department periodically review the use of the circle and feather logo out of sensitivity for native tribes across the country as well as Utah fans. At this time, the athletics department will continue to use both the circle and feather and the block U logos."

Posted Dec 30th - 3:13pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY -- The Drum and Feather is done. Sources tell KSL that the University of Utah has gone away from the drum and feather logo. The last time Utah will wear the logo will be in the Sun Bowl. Rumors are that the Utes will go to either the block "U" for the logo, or the double "UU".


Across the Ute sideline: Scouting the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Posted Dec 29th - 3:00pm by Shane Roberts, KSL.com Contributor

SALT LAKE CITY - In a rematch of the 2005 Emerald Bowl, the Utes take on a familiar opponent in Georgia Tech, a familiar style of play in the triple option, and also a familiar coach in Paul Johnson, who coached Navy until he took the Tech job before the 2007 Poinsettia Bowl against Utah.

Let's break down this matchup.
