Today's Deseret News has an article on how you should not piss the coaches off with inept play. In last Saturday's game against UCLA, the Utes receivers struggled all night long, dropping ball after ball. While this was not the only reason for the Utes struggles on the road, it didn't help. Because of this, Coach Whittingham had some choice words for the receivers.
Ouch. Well one thing is clear, Whittingham won't take sloppy play from any of this players. This is good, a coach should never be passive when it comes shoddy performances by the players. Now if only Whittingham would have the same talk with Andy Ludwig.
Saturday should give us an indication if what Whittingham has said sunk through to the players. If the Utes continue to struggle, well maybe the coaches will need to look at themselves rather than the players.
