College Football

Utah Utes

Utah used its bye week to prepare for Oregon State. The Beavers aren’t the most talented team in the Pac-12 but they are coming off a big win against UCLA and are looking to prove that their huge offensive output wasn’t a fluke. We preview the game and make our picks. Should Zack Moss play? Is this a trap game for the Utes?  

BYU Cougars

It’s always painful to go into a bye after a loss, but it’s especially tough when that loss was an upset. That’s what BYU had to do after losing to Toledo. With nothing but a bowl game to strive for and with fan interest seeming to drop off we ask the age old question: should the Cougars look for a conference?  

Utah State Aggies

Things didn’t go well for Jordan Love and the Aggies last week. They were twenty seven point underdogs to LSU but still couldn’t cover. They enter their bye reeling but still optimistic about conference play. What went wrong? Should Aggie fans be concerned?    

NBA

Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted his support for Hong Kong last week and China immediately began the process of severing connections with the NBA. Was Adam Silver’s right in his response? Will China ever be interested in mending the relationship with the league? Should players and coaches be expected to speak out about situations like this?  

Utah Jazz

Preseason basketball is underway and the Jazz have had a couple early surprises.

Utah Utes

After a demoralizing loss to USC the Utes bounced back big against Washington State. Have they righted the ship or is there more work to do?  

BYU Cougars

BYU heads into their bye week after suffering a loss to lowly Toledo. It’s hard to believe that this is the same team that beat USC a few weeks ago. Where do the Cougars go from here?  

Utah State Aggies

The Aggies grinded out a win against Colorado State but it was a bit of a head scratcher. Now they head to Death Valley to take on 5th ranked LSU.

Nick Rimando / Real Salt Lake

Nick Rimando played in his final home game last week and gave the fans a tear filled goodbye. We reflect on his career and what he has meant to the franchise and the community.

Utah State Aggies

Utah State enjoyed an early bye last week and will open conference play against San Diego State on Saturday. We break down the game. Can Jordan Love keep that offense rolling?

College Football

BYU Cougars

BYU went in to SEC country and came out with a win. Tennessee was shocked by Georgia State in their first game and it didn’t get much better last week. Ty’Son Williams proved that he is a valuable weapon for Jeff Grimes’ offense but will the Cougars revert back to throwing the ball against USC? What does Kalani Sitake need to do to pull off the upset against the Trojans?  

Utah Utes

The Utes struggled at first against Northern Illinois but got it together in the second half. Should the slow starts worry Ute fans? Plus we preview this week’s matchup against Idaho State.  

Utah State Aggies

Utah State’s offense was very impressive against Stony Brook. Jordan Love put up huge numbers and the backups got some valuable minutes. Now the Aggies get a week off before they open conference play against San Diego State.    

Basketball

FIBA World Cup / Utah Jazz

Team USA was disappointing in this year’s FIBA World Cup. A loss to France (lead by Rudy Gobert) ensured that they would not even medal. But there is a silver lining for Jazz fans. Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles all stood out in the tournament. Is this a positive sign for the upcoming NBA season?

Holy War 2019

Utah beat BYU for the ninth straight time. But how confident should Ute fans feel going forward? Should the Cougars be concerned about Zach Wilson’s play?  

Utah Utes

The Utes struggled with NIU last year but managed to pull out a close win. What can we expect in this year’s match up?  

BYU Cougars

The Volunteers are reeling after being embarrassed by Georgia State last week. Does this hurt BYU’s chances of pulling off the upset in Knoxville?  

Utah State Aggies

The Aggies lost another heart breaker last week. A clutch drive at the end of the fourth quarter gave Wake Forest the win. What can we expect this week as Utah State takes on Stony Brook.

Holy War 2019

The Utes and Cougars put on one hell of a regular season finale last year. Now BYU will look for vengeance in this season’s opener. We preview the game and make our picks. Should Utah fans really be confident in a blowout victory? Why are so many fans ready for this game to be over? Do people really hate the rivalry? Can everyone stop taking smack talk so seriously?  

Utah State Aggies

The Aggies are looking for revenge on Wake Forest. They have Jordan Love and Gerold Bright but will it be enough?    

NFL

Andrew Luck / Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck surprised everyone by announcing his retirement last week and Colts fans are angry. We react to the news and the fan response.

Real Salt Lake / Mike Petke

Real Salt Lake fired head coach Mike Petke after repeatedly hurling a Spanish homophobic slur towards a referee. There are also allegations that he sent a note containing the slur to the official’s locker room after the match. Would Petke have been fired if the team was having more success?

Larry Krystkowiak has lost even more players to transfer this offseason. At what point does he need to take accountability for this concerning trend? Is there anything that can be done to stop it?    

NBA / AAU

LeBron James

LeBron James made sure the whole world knew that he was on the sidelines while his son’s team played in the AAU championship game. He put on a dunking exhibition while the team did layup drills and had an over the top celebration during the game that included him running on the court. Does he deserve the widespread criticism he has received for his behavior?

NBA

Houston Rockets / Oklahoma City Thunder

Just when we thought the NBA offseason frenzy was over a blockbuster trade went down. Oklahoma City sent Russell Westbrook to Houston in exchange for Chris Paul and a ridiculous amount of first round draft picks. We react to the news and discuss how this affects an already stacked Western Conference.  

Utah Jazz / Jerry Sloan

A recent Salt Lake Tribune column revealed that things aren’t going well for Jerry Sloan. His health is declining rapidly and no one is quite sure how much time he has left. We discuss the column, talk about what Sloan has meant to the Utah Jazz franchise and theorize as to why there isn’t a statue of Jerry outside Vivint Smart Home Arena.  

Memphis Grizzlies / Grayson Allen

Grayson Allen was ejected from a recent summer league game after picking up two flagrant fouls within eight seconds of each other. Take a look at the fouls (below). Did they deserved to be called flagrant?
