I know no one cares what I think (the most valuable thing you learn in law school), but I CALLED IT. This kid is fantastic.
The Cougar ends up Black and Blue, even before they get their butt kicked...
For a player once without a team, then so far under the radar two freshmen were generating more buzz, the Utah quarterback was hardly complaining. The QB not recruited by any Division I school until a roundabout journey to Salt Lake City last year is now the offensive leader on a squad riding high after a 27-24 [I think they mean 24-21] upset win over rival BYU. "He's tough as nails," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said of the 6-foot, 208-pound senior. "He takes some shots, and picks himself right back up every time. That mental and physical toughness is infectious to the rest of the team."
To all those decrying our punting game, we do have the top punter in the country. Hackett was also noted this week for his skill at placing the ball inside the 10. We obviously need to work on blocking, but at least our kickers are fantastic.
Oregon and USC are unquestionably the class of the Pac-12, but the Utes could wind up the next best by season's end. They'll run the ball with John White, stuff the run with Star Lotulelei and a return to the spread offense days of Brian Johnson -- led by 25-year-old coordinator Johnson -- will benefit veteran quarterback Jordan Wynn.
FB friends with RoJo, and I've noticed he's been much more cheerful lately, so I checked out his roster spot on the Titans website. Looks like he's ready to break into the league! I know many have been hopefully following his NFL career, so I thought this was a good update to share.
Not surprising, but Coach is having heart troubles. I hope he gets well soon. http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/saint-louis-coach-rick-majerus-takes-medical-leave-of-absence-jim-crews-to-direct-team/2012/08/24/9a25684e-ee3a-11e1-b624-99dee49d8d67_story.html
