Glad to see The Beekeeper is staying at safety, I really thought he was more
effective playing safety than linebacker. Can't wait to see some more bone
crushing hits on opposing receivers.
Blechen is a stud . The Utes defense is better with him on the field no matter
what position he lines up as. I know we lost a handful of great players but it
sounds like the defense will be just as good if not better than last years.Can't wait for the season to begin and to see what this team can
The thing that impressed me about Blechen the most is when he got absolutely
blown up late in the USC game and jumped right up and started yapping at the USC
player. A hit like that to most other players and they would NOT even be getting
up, let alone popping right up and getting in his face.
Wow, he had 3 interceptions........ And 2 of them against a junior college level
team. That means he only had one against the rest of the opponents. He is
@BO"And 2 of them against a junior college level team."**********Of course Utah only play 2 JC level teams last year...
If they had play 4+ JC level teams like a certain team down south, Blechen may
have had more ints.
He is a stud love utah football. I don;t know if he has the speed to play safety
at the next level or not.But he will play on Sundays because he can play a lot
of different positions
Why the buzz about Blechen? He really was a non-factor most of last season. He
should never have been moved to LB. He was too small to take on good O-Lineman.
Just check out USC guard Joe Martinez absolutely destroying Blechen on Youtube.
Star is the only force on the Utah defense. I am not sure what Utah fans
are so optimistic about? Even with a god-given schedule and avoiding the 2 best
teams in the PAC-12, Utah managed to drop 5 games including losses to Colorado,
ASU, UW, and Cal. Not to mention it took Overtime to beat the mighty Washington
State Cougars. Utah will always be 2nd to USC in the south, but i do think they
will be competitive in 2-3 years. They will have to manage beating the likes of
Colorado and WSU on a regular basis however..
@ BO"Wow, he had 3 interceptions........ And 2 of them against a
junior college level team. That means he only had one against the rest of the
opponents. He is truly amazing!"Sour Grapes!!!
Hey Elmer,Why is that sour grapes.Its a fluff piece devoid of
substance.If you like that stuff then enjoy it.
@BO"Its a fluff piece devoid of substance."*********Fluff is the stock-in-trade of the DN. Substantive
coverage and insight simply requires too much work.Usually, however,
DN fluff is reserved for extolling the preseason national championships of BYU.
I absolutely love Blechen!! You can always expect something fun to watch when he
is on the field. Love his dedication and I'm glad they moved him back to
safety. He may not be the fastest guy out there but he IS smart and instictive.
You can't replace those two traits. Gotta love watching him play. The kid
is a Beast!! GO UTES!!! August can't come soon enough!
Black & BlueThat's ok what you are saying, we held your
team to 10pts and I'm sure we will do it again. Blechen is just another one
of the players from the U that will play at the next level. I'm a Ute fan
and I am very optimistic about 2012, aren't you about your cougs. I cannot
believe how you and BO can even comment about the defence at the U. When and if
you ever beat the U again stop the chatter. And BO, how many interceptions did
you get last year and don't talk about Junior College level, 3/4 of your
season was aginst teams in the same classification.
Black & Blue,Well, ya know he was no Uale. But making hard, legal hits
has a place in college football, too, so we're happy to have him.
