And so am I.
Utah football kicks off fall camp today and that pretty much means we're in the final lap of the offseason. You can already hear the band playing Utah Man.
Soon, Rice-Eccles Stadium will be filled with red-clad Ute fans cheerin' on Utah in their inaugural Pac-12 season.
I can't wait.
Benji Kemoeatu, however, is not. And, as much as we hoped he would find his way onto the field this year, he ain't.
Beyond just who's on it, the first thing I noticed is how few seniors Utah really has. Only fifteen of 105 players listed are ending their careers this winter.
That's a spectacular number and means the Utes could be set for the next few years. As much as we look at 2011 being a big year, 2012 looms as potentially the biggest.
Of course, a lot can change - players can leave and the team can regress greatly.
But for now, the future is looking mighty good.
