Well guys, it’s been a long time since the last article so there’s a lot to catch up on. Let’s run over the important stuff now, more to come later.
First off, the “Less” Vegas Bowl; I’ve had it with the stagnant offense on Utah’s end. There really wasn’t any one aspect that was to blame.
Terrance Cain once again showed poor pocket presence, being sacked needlessly, fumbling the ball and looking nothing like earlier this season.
The play calling was actually very VERY good early on in the game, but was ruined by dropped balls that my grandma could catch. After the dropped passes early, the play calling flat out sucked.
The Utes faced 3rd and long so many times, the Boise State defensive coordinators barely had to work after the 1st quarter. The Utes could easily have been up 21-0 in the first quarter with all the turnovers the defense forced.
The Utes offense nailed their own coffin shut with more dropped passes and terrible play calling in the second half, ending a 9 bowl game win streak (2nd longest in NCAA history).
Hats off to Kalani Sitake, Utes defensive coordinator and the Utes defense. At the beginning of the season, the defense was the biggest question mark and, once again, the Utes defense carried them this season when times were tough on offense.
Congrats Boise State. Great season this year. Good luck filling Utah’s shoes in the Mountain West next season.
