Utes say they'll stick with wildcat scheme and I die a little inside

Yeah, I'm not sold on the wildcat (or is it wild-indian, meh too un-PC), but I guess the coaches are.

It's not that I don't think it can be successful, it's just the Utes seem to get too comfortable running it and it loses its effectiveness. I mean, it failed against the Cougars and really hasn't been consistent or good enough this season to warrant a continuation. 

So, I've got to wonder what the hell the coaches are thinking with this one. Especially when Dave Schramm, Utah's OC, said...

"We just had some things that weren't good."

Ignoring the Palin-esque language - is he blind? The things that weren't good happen to be the entire formation! It's abysmal and the thought of this being part of the offensive game plan for the Poinsettia Bowl really makes me shudder. 

But what do I know? I'm just a fan. I'll happily eat my words if it proves effective against Cal. 

Will it, though?
