Well the first scrimmage of fall camp is in the books and by all accounts, the offense is looking about as good as advertised. Or the defense is really in for a whole lot of hurt come September.
I'm thinking (or hoping) it's the former.
As for that scrimmage, like I said, the offense cleaned up. Both Jordan Wynn and Terrance Cain looked pretty solid. Wynn, who is projected as the starter in less than three weeks (!), was 14 of 20 for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Cain, his camp rival, put up similar numbers by going 14 of 16 for 180 yards and two touchdowns.
Whittingham had this to say about the quarterbacks:
"All three quarterbacks looked good and Griff is doing a nice job with a special package of plays,"
So the offense looked great and the defense looked about as young and inexperienced as first thought. But is that more an indication of how explosive this offense can be or how green the defense will be?
That's the problem when you're facing each other in camp. You just don't truly know until the season actually begins.
Other than that, though, things are going exceedingly well for the Utes in camp. Hopefully it continues the next couple weeks as we head closer and closer to the start of the 2010 season.
