    Rhett, you forgot Quinton Ganther in your list, who just last year retired from a good NFL career. Also, Devontae Booker and Soni Kinikini are not seniors, they're rising juniors as JUCO transfers.

    Let me correct myself, Kinikini is actually senior.

    With 2 coaches on the staff that combine for national championships, BCS bowls, undefeated seasons, I think this year will be special.

    I see 9-3, 8-4 maybe.

    I think this will be the year we "arrive" in the Pac 12.

    Between not having a QB, and some questionable offensive play calling, I think we'll come into this season flying under the radar.

    And I think we'll surprise a number of Pac12 teams.

    Go UTES!

    Sorry but it will be more of the same again this year. I think you got the numbe9s right but in the wrong order. 3-9 or 4-8 is where it will be. Mark it down.

    StGtoSLC,

    Good call out on Ganther. Gotta include Carl Monroe and Popcorn Rogers too.

    U 90, they were great, as was Eddie Johnson, but Wilkinson was meaning the ones since the mid-90s. But yeah, it's been a rare occurrence since the early 80s that the Utes haven't had a fantastic RB to watch, making Broom Hockey Champ's obsessive degradation of all of them this year pretty funny to his/her credibility.
