The importance of home games


What if Utah had played all their tough games at home in 2009? What would have their record been?

Pitt Defensive Coordinator Talks About Utah's Formations


Pitt defensive coordinator Phil Bennett said some interesting things about the Utah offense today. During a conversation with Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBaeu, he said, "I told him heck, they have 58 formations. They do everything. I don't know how they practice that." Bennett continued, "They run power, a wildcat package, they run option - everything you might see in a year, we're seeing it in this first game." Maybe I'm reading between the lines, but, "I don't know how they practice that," could mean, "We've had a hard time practicing to defend that." Hopefully that translates into a bunch of points for Utah as Pitt's newer defenders get a little lost during the opener.

One week and the fun begins


Utah opens the 2010 season a week from today. With their opponent entering the game ranked 15th in the nation, it provides a great measuring stick for the season.

The ghosts of season openers past: Oregon, 1995


Hosting a season opener when you're expected to be good doesn't always mean you're guaranteed a win. Just ask the 1995 Utes - who lost their opener against the Oregon Ducks.

Utes pulling in 2nd best non-AQ recruiting class

Utah Utes Top prospect: QB Derrick Brown (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta) The Utes are putting together one of their better classes under coach Kyle Whittingham, and selling future Pac-10 play to recruits appears to be paying dividends. Utah already has 17 commits in its well-balanced class. Brown is a steal and should be a highly productive quarterback thanks to his great dual-threat skill set and athleticism out of the spread. Other schools may have passed over offensive tackle Daniel Kristensen (Salt Lake City/Cottonwood) because of his lighter frame, but we see a lineman with very good feet, agility and a high ceiling for physical development. Future depth has been added at receiver with several system-fitting prospects, including Charles Henderson (New Orleans/McDonogh).

Colorado to wait until 2012 to join the Pac-12


Which means the Utes will have one season of play in a conference of 11 members. Thoughts about this?

Predictions, predictions, predictions (for Pitt)...


So how will Utah open against Pitt. Should Ute fans expect a dominant effort, a so-so effort with a win or a loss?
