Yes. BUT he was supposed to be mission bound but obviously changed his mind or came home early. Either way, it's all good.
Ok so in this case RM is literally return missionary. I’m an idiot.

Re: Summarizing the new transfers / recruits

I think a nice stretch goal is 6 wins and a bowl game. We should be able to go 2-2 at a minimum in our non-conference games as I don’t see us losing to either North Dakota or NMSU. Going 4-4 in league games won’t be easy but doable. May depend on which games are at home and which are away. I think ...

Re: Maile's "three pillars" recruiting strategy (from the report)

I completely agree. Not bleak at all. It's purely a numbers game. Utah actually does quite well with the quality of recruits it puts out compared to population numbers.

Broadcasters for both SDSU games made multiple mentions of the crowd noise given the number of empty seats. Not sure how big it is, but there is a home court advantage in the Spectrum - even this year.
Not sure it affects the players but I think for sure it affects the refs.

Re: Formal apology to Brock Miller

I've been wrong on Brock so far this year. He's playing much better, and I'm hoping that he can sustain that level of play for the entire season.
One observation is that he shoots noticeably better in the Spectrum than on the road.

Maile’s three pillars were made worse by the fact that he sucked at his own three pillars.
