Utah QB Hays shows toughness, grit in wild journey


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."

RoJo "Poised to contribute"


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.

We won a Game!


Sure, it's completely meaningless at this point of the year, but a win is a win is a win! We only won 6 last year, so I'll take them where I can get them.
