Conservative Utes win opener in ho-hum fashion

Utah's performance Thursday night certainly won't give USC reason to quake in their boots. 

Whether it was by design or due to non-coaching issues, the newly revamped Utah offense sputtered in its debut. While not an awful performance, the short passes and conservative play calling makes you wonder if the coaches trust Jordan Wynn, or if there might be some lingering issues with his shoulder - either way, Wynn wasn't bad, but hardly did enough to inspire. 

I'm not quite sure what to make of the overall performance. I was impressed with how the team looked for much of the first half. However, in the second half, they either looked disinterested at times or completely overwhelmed - I couldn't quite decide.

Overall, though, a win is a win and the Utes weren't embarrassed against a lesser opponent. 

They just didn't blow the doors off like I had hoped. 

At least John White looked good, though.
