    So like I said a few articles ago, why would anyone believe a Ute player or coaching staff when it comes to injuries?

    Jordan yanked everyone's chain last year, so did Whit and Chow. Who knows what the truth was this year, I guess it doesn't matter, he's gone anyway.

    Obviously the PAC 12 is having issues with transparency and honesty and that has now filtered down to the Utes. It would appear that players are now being encouraged to 'play' along with this policy of lying about their conditions... or maybe not.

    So John White IV, are you 100% this week or what? We are all dying to know the percentage your coach told you to say.

    sammyg, while fans like to think they have a right to be "in the know" with what their team's players' injury statuses are, these are amateur athletes, and it really isn't any of their business. If someone wants to share something about their health status, it is their right to say whatever they want to about it, it's not the place for anyone to demand medical records and detailed injury reports for any of these players.

    The Big 12 has the same policy -- injuries are a private matter. I understand your stress. You like snooping into other people's business and comment boards...
