Wynn survives a scrimmage. I remember last August Norm Chow about had a heart
attack when Wynn got whacked in practice. No such worries this Spring, Norm is
That is only because we had only two QBs that we could lean on. Who else would
we have been able to truly rely on? Norm (with his experience) didn't
really have much faith in anyone else. If Wynn got hurt during last year's
Spring camp, last season might not have fared well at all.Glad to
hear we have good depth at that position. If the first two QBs go down, we have
three more in the waiting with some good football skills and athleticism.
Experience will come in the form of trial by fire.
Sounds like a good scrimmage today up on the hill. The defense had a ton of
guys making plays which is great to hear - that's even with Star sitting
out. The best news is that the offense was productive. They seem to be ahead
of last years team already. I don't think the offense scored a touchdown
in last years spring game so it's great to hear that they could move the
ball today and not just with Wynn but the others stepped in too.I
can't wait for this season to begin!Go Utes!
Wynn was 11-27 and he thought it went pretty well?
@RBN, yes, 11-27 for the spring game is fine, considering:1. his throwing
motion's entirely fixed.2. he's still making smart decisions and
threw it away a few times to avoid negative yardage plays.3. He had a few
misreads and overthrows.4. HE THREW NO PICKS. Statistically, Wilson had
the better average per completion, but he had that pick 6.
@ RBNI went to today's scrimmage, and realistically, Wynn
should have been about 16 for 27, Dunn dropped two easy catches, Langi dropped a
couple of easy balls too, and Christopher got mixed up on a route and failed to
turn around in time to catch a perfectly thrown ball. The numbers are deceiving,
Wynn looked good.
Ah, and I forgot about another good ball that Murphy dropped in the end zone on
a short route. 17 for 27.
Yeah, what's with the 11-27 stat for Wynn. The freshmen had better stats.
No, it wasn't Wynn's most accurate showing, but the numbers between
the QBs really were deceiving, and Wynn probably did look a little bit better
than Wilson, just because he always put the ball somewhere where the defense had
no shot at it. Like afro said, there were a lot of well-thrown balls from him
that were dropped, and he also showed the awareness to scramble for a first down
when he needed to. Wilson had trouble reading blitz a couple times, and threw a
few risky passes, and Hansen's TD was a fun play to watch, but it was also
very dangerous as he just slung the ball into the flat as he was being pulled
down, without seeing where he was throwing at all.Defensively, VJ
Fehoko, Dave Fagergren and Mo Lee all looked really good. Pretty fun scrimmage
I thought Wynn looked good. He had some long drives. The receivers dropped a few
balls. Travis Wilson has an arm. After the interception in the first series, he
settled down. He had a presence in the pocket and a very accurate throw. He will
be a great qb in the near future. Noticed some talented db and
safeties out there. I was probably most organized with how organized
the practice was run. Good crowd for a practice.
Those 97-snap scrimmages really cut into "Seven Peaks" training. How
did our Linemen look in their "lazy floating inner tube" drills? How
well did our LBs improve their "sliding" skills? Were there enough
towels and lockers available for our incoming Freshmen? How can we be expected
to prepare ourselves for a Rose Bowl or National Championship appearance if we
don't put in enough time at the local leisure water parks like our little
brothers down South?GO UTES!
@naval vetAlweays comparing yourself to big brother. Even when no
one else mentioned them and the arcticle isn't even about them.LOL!
