This week in the Crimson Corner we recap Utah's second spring scrimmage, introduce you to the Utes' Team #AFG, catch up with former wide receiver Steve Smith and the Red Rocks getting ready for Nationals.
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.
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.
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.
