I know what a lot of people think when posts like these pop up. In football, its hard to compare positions and its almost impossible to say for sure who is the best of all-time. But I don't care. I am in the mood for Ute football and until fall camp gets under way, there isn't much else to talk about.
I majored in stats at the U., so I know my numbers (honk). I am not going to do statistical breakdowns of the all-time greats. If you want to, thats great and it makes great reading. I just want to know who you think is the greatest player to ever put on the Utes uniform.
For me, I am going with Eric Weddle. Eric came in as a two-star recruit and left as the most versatile player in the modern era. He started in all four seasons. Sean O'Connell on 1280 the zone mentioned yesterday that Eric, while not the fastest player on the team (40 wise), rarely lost a race because he was so competitive. We all know the stories, and the accolades. The guy literally did everything, except line up in the trenches.
