Just saw in Twitter that Yaro Duvalko decided to officially re-open his recruitment this morning. Looks like he is most likely gone. Did we find someone better?
It's 2 things. 1) He is being asked to grayshirt, so it's not a true 2020 offer. 2) He loved Mike Sanford, who is now gone.

Re: JLove to the Chargers?

Maybe they'll draft Jordan Love to be the 'qb in waiting'. But the real rumor here is that Tom Brady will be the next Chargers QB.

Re: Transfer Portal Thread

A few interesting notes in conference: Jack Sears, the highly recruited USC QB that was transferring to SDSU has 'opened his recruitment back up' due to Rocky Long leaving SDSU. They may not get him after all. CSU landed former Temple backup QB that has shown some flashes, Todd Centeio. He may very ...

New Mexico.

I guess he couldn't find a better DC gig. He left being the head coach at San Diego State because he's getting too old to deal with all that comes with it and just wanted to coach a defense.

Re: Jordan Love & Gerold Bright busted for smoking weed

Whatever your options are about marijuana the fact remains that it is illegal in Utah. Spare me the argument that it doesn’t matter because it’s legal in other states. Yes, they are college kids, but that also doesn’t excuse this. I expect kids in our program to have better judgement. Especially le...

Re: Hot Take: Brito should start at PG

I wouldn’t switch anything up. Abel has done a pretty good job handing the ball this season and does good against the press. It was mainly Brito and even Sam that had some careless turnovers at the end of that game. He has also become a more 3 point threat this season. If anything he should shoot t...

I think Brito should start at PG. He has been in a massive funk compared to his play last season and the start of this season. This is nothing against Abel, but I based off what we saw last night I think Brito seemed a lot more comfortable in that role than the '6th man coming off the bench' role. I...
