Made this account to give a shout out to Greg Reese. It's a very courageous
and selfless thing you're doing, volunteering to play at a different
position than what you've played the last few years. To the people who will
badmouth it and say he is just doing it for a chance at playing time, duh,
he's a competitor and wants to get on the field. That doesn't diminish
from the fact that he's taking a risk and putting himself out there. I just
hope you have as good of a transition from tight end to defensive line as
Rashede Hageman did up at Minnesota. The Utes would definitely appreciate that
kind of production.
MNUte,I don't think Ive ever heard someone criticize someone
for switching positions to get on the field, ever, in any sport. But apparently
you have some axe to grind huh?
ChrisB,Really? I came on here to compliment Reese, not grind an axe.
Focus on the players and football, not the people talking about
them. Maybe you should wish Reese luck and hope he does have a transition like
Hageman rather than attempting to overanalyze the meaning behind a part of my
post. From what I've seen in the comment sections of other articles, it
might help you get less criticism from other posters.
MNUte:"To the people who will badmouth it and say he is just doing it

just give a shout out. Go Utes!
Prior to Spring camp, ESPN had a lot to say about Jason Whittingham stepping up
to assume a large role as an anchor amid our Linebacking corps. Yet, since
Spring camp had started, all I've been hearing about is Paul, Norris, and
Masina (and Hale prior to his ACL tear). So who knows what's up with
Whittingham? Is he injured? Has he been held out as a precaution? Or is he
simply getting beat out by those aforementioned LBs? At 6-2/240, Whittingham
would be our biggest LB. And he's experienced too. I would have hoped to
see him winning a starting job.
Naval Vet, he's out for the spring with an injury, whether surgical
recovery, rehab, or precautionary I don't know. But he was announced at the
start of spring camp as out for the spring, and would return to the starting
lineup in the fall.
Thanks for the update StGtoSLC!
Wow, is Chris B sick or confused? She did not bring up BYU or stray from the
topic of the article!!! I am shocked!!! Good luck to Utah this year!!! Sounds a
bit like they have been bit by the injury bug like BYU was last year!!!
