Good to hear. I still think the kid will have a great 2 years left.
This is good, but I'm still nervous about how he'll do on the field under
pressure. I hope the injury really was the reason for his poor performances
after the TCU game and that the surgery has really fixed the problem.
I don't believe there is any reason to doubt that it was the injury that caused
the drop-off he had at the end of last year. Before he was injured (during the
second-half of the ISU game from what I understand), he was dynamite. He was
literally one of the top 10 QBs in the country. If I remember right, he was the
#6 QB in passer efficiency. His accuracy and arm strength were solid.The only drawback I've ever seen from a healthy Jordan Wynn was his
immobility, hopefully the new offense will address that.
Thilller,I agree with you. Can't have Wynn in a position to
run...bad things happen.If the RB's and OL come through... look for
a great year from Wynn.
Unproven running backs, unproven receivers and an offensive line that is a
little shaky with some new faces will be too much for this "system" QB
to overcome. Defense has similar holes to plug. Wynn can "manage" a
game with good offensive talent around him but he is not a "take over"
type of player. I am thinking that there will be a new starting QB this fall if
any of the others have a solid upside. Whether you believe it or not, Utah will
likely struggle at the QB position their first year in the PAC but need to look
at years 2 and 3 so a pattern of mediocrity is not established. Wynn has peaked
because of the players around him but many of those players are gone now.
Similar to another local schools scenario from last year. Watch how the other
school does it this year Utes. Maybe you can emulate them again and limit the
growing pains. Good luck Utes!
Thanks for the analysis TJ you should really shop your prognosticative skills to
the media, it's so unbiased and fair.
"Similar to another local schools scenario from last year. Watch how the

"emulate" is do the exact oppisite... then I agree. 7-6 with a dirt
stain lose to the mighty USU is nothing anyone would want to
"emulate".My guess is with a staff of rookie coaches....
byu will need someone, anyone to "emulate"At some point
running around traffic cones and clapping hands will end and the unprepaired
kewgs will actually have to play a game. Should be comical.
TJ,You have made some good comments on other articles, but you're
off base with this one. When Norm Chow came in he stated a 10-3 record
indicates the Utes are not that bad. Thriller pointed out that Wynn's struggles
can be traced almost exactly to when the injury happened. If that is true, and
Chow's tweaks do the trick we should be just fine in the PAC-12. Unlike the
team you are referencing, Wittingham has taken a proactive approach and wants to
fix things before the wheels fall off. I don't think even Bronco would argue
that the wheels definitely fell off for BYU last year. A total revamping of the
coaching staff seems to indicate that.
More good news, can't wait to kick -off the new season in th Pac-12!
I think people are underestimating the importance of the Tim Davis hire. He is
going to be a great help to the O-line
A healthy Jordan Wynn is bad news Utah fans. That means they have to play him.
Now you really don't have a chance in the Pac 12 with him behind center. You
guys would be so much better with anyone else behind center. He has no heart.
I'm sorry but Wynny is not the answer for success in Utah's program. Mark my
words all you want. I will come back mid season if he makes it that far and
repost what I wrote. I want Utah to succeed, but with Wynn playing they have no
shot in the Pac!
Rather than making condescending comments about players, positions and teams one
knows little about, those like TJ, who are obviously biased, should stick to
what they know best...cheering at the LES. The Utes have more than
enough depth on the O line...even Coach Whit is pleased with the aspect of the
offense. In addition the new O line I think will be a great addition. I am not sure how one can say with certainty that Wynn has peaked since his
injury did limit significantly last year his ability to perform. Why the Utes would want emulate mediocrity is beyond me. I think that is best
left to schools that are independent and BCS wannabe's. I think that
although the challenges the new PAC-12 presents are significant, the Utes are up
to the challenge being picked by those who know something as one of the front
runners in the PAC-12 South.
Wynn will be a solid QB if he stay's healthy. Goooo Utes!
Sounds like TJ has some issues w/jealousy. Oh well. So hard to look at the
world when all you have are blue goggles on. I think Utah will be fine in its
first season as a Pac 12 member. There will be a lot of ups and downs. I'm
sure we'll lose one we should've won, and win one we should've lost. I'm
speaking about conference games. Big deal. Such as life when you're in a BCS
conference day in and day out! This is a pure win/win situation for the Utes
and for collegiate athletics as well in Utah. 10 wins in a still-rebuilding
year is not bad. We weren't 6-6 ;-), we won 10 games and have a the best
recruiting class ever coming in to fill spots on the roster. I think CB is
going to be a question mark, but our safeties are big play, Robert Johnson-type
guys, so hopefully this will offset any weakness at CB. Can't wait to see how
Dunn and Christopher perform in Chow's offense. Along w/ Anthony Denhem.
Should be a great year. Go Utes!!!!
This will be a rough year for the utes. .500 will be about as good as it will
get. They have lost alot over the last two years, the competition is taking a
step up and I do not think wynn is very good. Of course ultimately we will see
as the season will come and go but that is my prediction.
