Re: The cure for low attendance

I honestly think having GA here will help tremendously (see what I did there). I like Matt Wells as a coach for the most part, but there was a palpable disconnect between him and most of the fans. Nothing really against him, but his personality isn’t very endearing. GA loyalists will be back next ye...

Re: has Yost signed his TT contract yet???

I agree. Gary should press hard to get him. Maybe a big Donor can come up with some of the money. Just think of the possibilities with Yost and Jordan love for two more years. If I were Gary I’d seriously consider making up some of the difference with my own salary. A couple more years with Yost an...

Re: Roderick

I will say this about Sanford Jr., I do like the experience he has with some big-time football schools. Maybe he just isn't cut out to be a head coach. Yeah, I’m not worried about a head coach record for a coordinator position. I think his coordinating resume speaks for itself and I hope we have a ...

Re: Roderick

I heard Jason Phillips may be the new OC. If true, I don't hate it, but I am underwhelmed by that idea. Man, does Gary have that much trouble going outside his cone of coaching to find guys? I thought he said he had like 50 calls/texts about possible coaching vacancies. Surely some of them are from...

Re: An attempt to provide some comfort for the doubters

Interesting Laub stepped in. So Gary now feels he is above the law. Not a good sign in my opinion. I will never think hiring a less talented coach just because he wants to stay for a long time is a good idea. - Yes I think Heartwell had more talented coaches on his list, otherwise Laub wouldn’t hav...

Here is a solution, in looking at the U’s football directory, this should be Gary’s email address: gandersen@huntsman.utah.edu. Email him and ask him to jump through the hoops to get the interview.
