Posted Jul 3rd - 4:28pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — "Our strength right now is that we've got two tight ends that I think are as good as anybody in our league." -Utah co-offensive coordinator Dennis Erickson

"I think they could be one of the best tandems in the conference this year if they continue to develop." -Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham

"They run great routes. They know how to get open. They're big targets and they're definitely people that I trust throwing to." -Utah QB Travis Wilson

Coach Kyle Whittingham: 'Be an elite person'

Posted Jun 28th - 2:16pm by Mike Grant

LAYTON — A coach is only as good as his players. Kyle Whittingham understands that recruiting is the lifeblood of his program and it never stops.

The search for elite talent is the reason Whittingham makes attending the All-Poly Camp a priority for him and his staff.

This last week the All-Poly camp took place at Ellison Park in Layton.

Utah Men's Basketball Adds Connor Van Brocklin

Posted Jun 27th - 11:38am by Drew Wiseman, U Of U Press Release

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah men's basketball program has announced the addition of Connor Van Brocklin for the 2013-14 season.

"We are very excited to add another quality player and person from the great state of Utah," Runnin' Ute head coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "Connor brings great shooting skills and maturity to our program."

Van Brocklin, a 6'5" wing, recently completed his sophomore season at Snow College. A deadly outside shooter, Van Brocklin led the Badgers in scoring this season with an average of 15.9 points per game including an average of 2.5 three-pointers per game. He was also a Second Team All-Scenic Western Athletic Conference selection this past year.

Larry Krystkowiak: 'One of the best things that has happened for us'

Posted Jun 27th - 10:52am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — The end of June is not a hot time for college basketball, unless it is players heading to the NBA.

This month was different for Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak — he isn't going anywhere.

"I did the math," Krystkowiak said, "I've never been in one house for more than two years, I just broke our record."

Utah football: 2 players the Utes can't afford to lose

Posted Jun 26th - 12:28pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah fans know what it is like to not have an offensive line/left tackle. Take, for example, 2012.

For the entire fall camp the offensive line was a mess. There were injuries and players were getting moved around and not stepping up. Even through the first few weeks of the season the line was still getting shifted around.

The 2012 season mirrored what the offensive line did - it was incredibly inconsistent.

Utah football's 'Next Star': Brian Blechen

Posted Jun 21st - 5:45pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — In a game of inches, timing is everything. The difference between winning and losing a football game can simply be having a player in the right place at the right time.

For Utah senior LB Brian Blechen, being in the right place at the right time is something that he has made him stand out from the pack in his first three years up on the hill.

In his first ever college game, Blechen intercepted a Pitt pass in overtime, setting up a game winning field goal. Later that year, he intercepted a San Diego State pass in the end zone to preserve a 38-34 win over the Aztecs.

Pedroza dismissed from the team

Posted Jun 19th - 10:15am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah wide receiver Quinton Pedroza was dismissed from the football team for disciplinary reasons.

Pedroza has been with the Utes since 2011 playing mostly on special teams. He has registered zero stats on offense in either 2011 or 2012 but was expected to play a bigger role at wide receiver this coming fall. Pedroza was listed as a starter after spring camp.

The hole on the depth chart could be filled by Anthony Denham, Brian Allen, or incoming JC transfer Andre Lewis.

SALT LAKE CITY — This week on the Crimson Corner we explore the Utes biggest needs to replace on the football team, Dennis Erickson was on the UTEcast and knows the Utes aren't getting any respect going into the 2013 season, and we catch up with Chris Burgess who was hired on Larry Krystkowiak's staff.

Utah football: Biggest needs to replace

Posted Jun 14th - 3:27pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

Defensive line

The defense will be missing a Star but it is time for others to step up and shine. The defensive line is a place where the Utes have not only been dominant in the last decade, but the depth shelf has also been fully stocked.

Utah knew that they would be losing one of the most talented defensive tackles to the NFL draft in Star Lotulelei and Dave Kruger to graduation (now with the Cleveland Browns) but depth took a hit when Joe Kruger decided to enter the draft. He was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round.

Utah Men's Basketball Welcomes Chris Burgess Back to Program

Posted Jun 12th - 10:39am by Drew Wiseman, U Of U Press Release

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Utah men's basketball head coach Larry Krystkowiak has announced the addition of former Runnin' Ute Chris Burgess to the program as an undergraduate assistant coach.

"We are very pleased to have Chris Burgess return to the Utah basketball program," Krystkowiak said. "This is a classic win-win scenario whereby Chris will be able to get his feet wet as an undergraduate student coach and at the same time, obtaining his degree in speech communication."

Burgess transferred to the University of Utah under head coach Rick Majerus. However, Burgess suffered a number of injuries that limited his productivity. After a solid start to his senior season, Burgess tore his right plantar fascia vs. Texas, forcing him to miss the remainder of his senior year.

Utes receive little love in early betting lines; Cougars favored in rivalry game

Posted Jun 7th - 2:27pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — We may still be 83 days away until the 2013 college football season officially kicks off (not that we're counting), but it's never too early to start making your way too early projections on how your team will fare.

The Golden Nugget agrees, releasing 248 betting lines Friday morning for the most marquee matchups in the 2013 season.

How does the Vegas casino think the Utes and the Cougars will do this upcoming year? Below are the lines for seven Utah and eight BYU games.

Washburn works out for Jazz

Posted Jun 6th - 4:42pm by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — When Jack Cooley's flight was cancelled, the Jazz called Jason Washburn a day early to come work out and "Wash" was ready, willing, and grateful for the chance.

The Jazz already had Washburn on the list to come Friday, but "things happen, and that's why you always got to stay ready," Washburn said. "You always got to stay prepared. My agent called me last night and said the Jazz might want to go with me today, I said I was prepared, I was ready and I came out here and I did my best."

Washburn knows that playing in the NBA isn't likely but he also knows his career isn't over.

Utah will host North Dakota in 2017

Posted Jun 5th - 11:06am by Mike Grant and Und Press Release

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The gap will be just over 75 years, but the University of North Dakota football team will play its second game against a member of the Pac-12 Conference when the Green and White travel to Salt Lake City in 2017 to take on the University of Utah in the season-opener for both schools.

UND athletics director Brian Faison announced the one-game deal on Tuesday that will pit the program against a Pac-12 foe for the first time since UND and Oregon played to a 0-0 tie in 1931. The game will be played on Thursday, Aug. 31 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

"We always enjoy the challenge of playing a team from the FBS level and will remain proactive in trying to schedule these games in the future," UND head coach Chris Mussman said. "We are looking forward to going out to Salt Lake City and playing against a well-established program from one of the top leagues in the country."
