Another smart move by Kwhitt to move the scrimmage to today. As a coach who is
well versed in utilizing the "scrimmage" (i.e. actually lining up
against humans instead of traffic cones), Kwhitt understood that having said
"scrimmage last Saturday would have been highly ineffective due to the poor

fan took from a BYU fan and threw. I'm sure Larry has one, too! Give the man a
I'm sure if BYU had moved their scrimmage to Monday, and Utah had kept theirs on
Saturday - a famous Ute troll would have been calling the Cougars wimps, or
worse. But instead, he is proclaiming what an inspired move it was
for the Utes to move their scrimmage to Monday. In reality,
practicing on a clear day versus a cold, snowy day have their unique advantages
and disadvantages.Please let me know if Utes get 5,500 fans for
@CougfaninUSU has more fan to spring ball then BYU's 5500 and Utah pulls
in 10000-12000. When all is said and done how ever we all have a long way to go
to get to SEC #Good Luck this year to all the in state teams
Actually wedgie what has been "highly ineefective" has been utahs
offense this spring. The fact is they have to have good weather just to be
mediocre. They are dependent on everything, including the conditions, being
perfect to even perform at any level of competence. So you are
correct, for utah, whittingham did the proper thing. He needs to convince them
that they can actually complete a pass or have a run go for positive yardage. In
order for there to ba any chance at all for either of those things to occur he
absolutely can't have the slightest distraction or discomfort for these guys.
After the way they were dominated by the defenses of TCU, BYU, Notre dame and
Boise to end the season confidence in their ability to actually move the ball is
undoubtedly sorely lacking. Whittigham knows this, since he is a smart coach,
and knows that coddling them, babying them, and slowly trying to build up their
fragile confidence and self esteem is a must if they ever hope to even score
this coming season.
@uc aggieAny more fiction to lay on us? Bwaaahahahahhaaaaaa.....
@DuckhunterYou're spot on in your analysis of the Utah offense
against TCU, Notre Dame, and Boise. About byu's defense though... well, they
were good, but I've got to say, "scoreboard, scoreboard, scoreboard."
I like to troll utah articles because I am insecure in my BYU cougars. Think
about it. We have this huge run in basketball and where do we get? The Sweet
16. Thats it.As far as football goes, I live and die by news about
Utah's football team. I take fragments of information and exaggerate them to
make myself look cool. The facts are, I am scared of losing to Utah this year.
It will be 3 of the last 4 and 7 of the last 10. Its not looking good for my
cougars. Please don't be mean to me. I promise that I will not
post when my cougars lose this year. In fact, I will be crying at home. I need another box of tissues.........
Half of these comments are from duckhunter and byu fans. Who cares!
"I like to troll utah articles"Talk about stating the
i like duckhunters comments they are pretty funny.
@CougFanin The Red/White game has been averaging over 8,500 people
the last few years. Last year was a new record, it was estimated around 10,500.
I think this year, weather permitting, will be even higher than that. So I think
we should easily be able to beat out the 5,500 that the Y game produced. But
thanks for worrying about us. Can't wait for the game Saturday and the upcoming
Wow, 10,500 to your Spring scrimmage. That's about the whole season's worth of
attendance for the Huntsman Center this year. Welcome to Utah Coach K.
Wow, smack talking spring game attendance. I think this board has hit a new
Smack talking attendance is the only leg coug fans have to stand on anymore. Sad
and extremely pathetic.
"Smack talking attendance is the only leg coug fans have to stand on
anymore. Sad and extremely pathetic.'Yea, but harlines still
open...right..uh,...anyone...eerr. crickets crickets crickets
- DuckhunterYou are mistaken, the offense is coming along just fine.
Both Qb's were impressive last scrimage. By the way they are both back ups that
can throw more than 10 yards down field unlike Riley "duck and run"
Nelson. Talk about offense, wasn't the score of the spring game like 3-6? you
better worry about your own offense. You know, the high flying offense that has
a zero coaching experience at the OC and Wr positions.
It was a Ute that brought up the attendance numbers ... I don't know what she
thinks that signifies. Speaking of sad and extremely pathetic smack talk, it's
nice to see Hedgehog over on the Ute boards for a change.
"it's nice to see Hedgehog over on the Ute boards for a change"Where else would you go to find a plethora of BYU fans?
@In Stitches "It was a Ute that brought up the attendance
numbers."Um actually...no, it was your good buddy CougFaninTX
with his comment "Please let me know if Utes get 5,500 fans for their

brought up attendance numbers - it was CougFaninTX at 10:07am who said the

Wallbanger:That doesn't change the fact that you will get that many
to a meaningless Spring scrimmage in football, but not to an actual homegame in
basketball. Once again, welcome Coach K to the loyal ute fanbase!
I enjoyed going to the packed Marriott center when the Cougs were down. It was
electric the way the fans supported their team, even in a losing season...I mean
they actually paid for tickets knowing their team would lose, filled the place,
held hands in solidarity, and gave everyone on the team a participation
trophy...it seriously was so classy. And this year they had a winning year and
were still classy, making cool videos for young adult talent shows and never
once a negative comment. Sports is so much more fun when nobody really cares
about winning...Cougars rock no matter what!
In Stitches: You are really pathetic and your insecurity is
blinding me. Talking about our basketball team on a football article. Your not a
byU fan, your a Ute hater, trying to say anything negative about the Utes to
make yourself feel better. I for one am excited to see how both teams do this
@hedgelogTalk about little-brother behavior. Now you've taken to
copying the board names of rival fans. Nice job.It's like this.
Harline's not open. George isn't still running. And the team in Provo isn't
winning.Things have changed, and you need to come up with some new
material to go with your new conference affiliations. Nobody's going to know
what you're talking about in the WCC/WAC.
So the scrimmage went pretty much as predicted. The offense did not have one
single scoring drive. Not one. The only time it scored, or even came close to
scoring was when they did the red zone situations where they started inside the
20 yd line. Of course not being able to stop a pathetic offense in the red zone
doesn't bode well for the defense either. LOLOn top of that
ineptitude there were litterally 10's of fans there to watch it. That was
probably for the best though. LOL
I Still Can't Say ItI guess hedgelog is right up there with
duckhunterrrr. I actually used to like Ute sports until Hedgehog,
Howard S., Chris B., hymn to the silent made me rethink my position. Actually, I
STILL like Ute sports, I just think the Ute fans are arrogant and hypocritical.
Something else Coach K. gets to look forward to -- if you all keep him around
