The PAC-12 Bar Has Been Raised.

4 Coaches fired and so far two studs hired to come in and get the job done. I expect that another 2 studs will step into the other slots as well. Coach Whit I think is more than up to the task as well as Norm. What I'm not sure about is can Utah compete in the recruiting arena? These new coaches are well known and their names alone can draw major attention in recruiting. Leach is a dick though so maybe kids will figure that out if they do their research, but noneltheless he'll damn sure get great players.

If Utah ever wants to be a legendary PAC-12 team we have to be one of the Conference schools that 4 and 5 star kids just want to come to and that isn't the case right now. Things like the crappy performance agains CU kill our recruiting. The CU game was for sure the worst coached game in a long time and potential recruits see that and wonder....Hmmm is Utah a risk to my career?

Our Bowl game this year will say a lot about the Utah program and can help seal the deal for some recruiting, so we'll see how the coaches prepare the team. I've seen nothing but excelent game plans from Whit's bowl prep and I expect the same this year. A win will be the icing on the cake to a year that could have been a disaster but was salvaged and turned into a pretty damn good first year in the 12.

Things are looking better for next year, but the competition is going to be even better and more difficult. Those factors make for an interesting scenario and we'll have to watch and see how it all turns out. I'll continue to read fan's posts as we all guess about the future of our team and the conference.

Bottom line is I love the excitement in NCAA football!
