I started at the UofU in 2002. It didn't take me long to get big into football, and I've been an avid fan ever since.

I run my own law practice in the Wasatch Valley now, and live closer to Provo than Salt Lake City. Still bleed red!

Utah @ USC- Advanced Metrics Primer

Since this was met with some approval last week, I shall continue aggregating advanced metrics and distributing to the Ute fan masses. This week I'm trading out the detailed description of each...

Nice, detailed analysis. Please, football gods, let there be at least one and hopefully two big SEC/P12 bowls.

Utah @ Arizona- Advanced Metrics Primer

I love me my stats, and advanced metrics in football have been developing at an incredible rate over the last few years. Last week I posted a little something about DPE, and how it showed that we...

Drive-Point Efficiency, an interesting advanced metric

I grabbed this stat from a Sportsnation blog, Footballstudyhall.com. This is yet another advanced metric that suggests that Utah is performing in the top half of the conference. The way it works:...

What's the must win?

Disappointing, disaster, a down year, rebuilding... call it what you want, there's no doubt that last season wasn't what Ute fans wanted or expected.That's not what I want to know, though. What I...

Reshawn Hooker

I know no one cares what I think (the most valuable thing you learn in law school), but I CALLED IT. This kid is fantastic.

RoJo "Poised to contribute"

FB friends with RoJo, and I've noticed he's been much more cheerful lately, so I checked out his roster spot on the Titans website. Looks like he's ready to break into the league! I know many have been hopefully following his NFL career, so I thought this was a good update to share.

Jon Hays

I like this article. It doesn't say Hays should start or anything like that, but it gives credit where credit is due, and reminds me of just how much he gave the team, and under what trying circumstances.

Who has you excited?

As you all know, Coach W. and crew have managed to put together the most impressive class of recruits Utah has ever had. The Utes have five four-star recruits and more than a dozen three star...

Gymnastics moves up #1 in the rankings. Going to be a thriller vs. #4 Georgia this weekend.

Utes climbing in recruiting rankings

As of this morning, Rivals has us with the #27 recruiting class in the country. It's a tight race at this point, and it would probably take another 4 star to vault us into the top 25 at this point... but a heck of a year for Coach W!

B1G sooner rather than later

Sounds like Hill is working hard to bring in a Big 10 team in the next couple of years... he even specifically mentioned Michigan. Ohio State is the obvious match-up, but I don't think they will do it, since they have rivalries out west already.

So which one of you guys is this?

Anyone else excited?

I don't honestly think the Sun Devils have a chance in hell (hah). That said, if they play BSU like they did USC, this could be a seriously exciting game. Also, it gives us one more chance to see what the fuss is about with Burfict (if he even plays)... so far, he looks like a classic case of low character leading to low performance.

End of Season Accolades

End of Season Accolades Star Lotulelei has been declared the winner of the Morris award's defensive component, which goes to the best lineman in the Pac-12. Eric Rowe has been declared defensive true freshman of the year by Ted Miller. Dres Anderson has earned honorable mention honors in the true freshman of the year competition. Can't wait for next year! This one isn't even over yet and I jsut can't wait!

The Ledge

The mood here on Block U is understandably bleak. Our Utes were two days away from getting a crack at Oregon and the Rose Bowl. All they had to do was get past the worst team in the Pac-12, and...

Go Bobcats!

+

The Bobcats are 9-2 and in the playoffs; they look on track to meet up with Montana again on the 16th or 17th. When they played last weekend, the Grizzlies walloped the Bobcats, 36-10. I'm probably the only person not from Montana who is still following them, but I was very impressed with their team and QB. Great to see that they are so good.

4. Utah: Utah is without question the team most deserving of a berth in the Pac-12 championship game among South Division contenders. While others have flopped, the Utes have won four in a row -- with their backup QB. If UCLA and Arizona State lose, then the Utes only need to beat Colorado to win the division. That's right!

John White is not on the Doak Walker list... what else does he have to do? He's got more total yards than half the guys on the list, and has 100% carried his team to bowl eligibility.

John White IV

John White needs a nickname. The KALL 700 announcers call him the "Wolfman", for reasons that I confess I do not understand. I have also heard him called "Quattro" and "Juan Blanco" on this site....

Nuff said. In other news, Missou has a smaller, agile RB who is making ASU look slow. White may be the weapon to use against them.
