    I agree. Both of those RB great transfers make that a much better team. That is great news.

    Wow, that's amazing. Great work by Steward and the coaching staff-- the offense's most glaring weakness is now at worst a wash and maybe even a strength.

    As long as the line can open holes. I was actually not all that impressed with the line last year (other than against Wisconsin). I hope they can continue he ti trend upward and give these horses some room to run.

    Currently being claimed that Tolutau is also gonna be back. If that's true the RB group shifts from "?" column to arguably being a strength, though I guess we'll have to see if Ula is anywhere near field ready this season.

    I'd assume that if Ula is really back he'll be fat and out of shape and be a non-factor this year.

    If Zach can get and stay healthy I'm optimistic that this year could be ~8 wins.

    Are the insiders saying why? (other than the admin sucks, which Jeff Lebowski has clearly and repeatedly demonstrated in the HCO threads)

    You would have thought this would have been a done deal before any commitment was made.

    Yes. It would be an incredibly shitty thing to do to a kid.

    No idea. I guess Brandon Gurney was on the radio yesterday stating it was a longshot that williams would be admitted to grad school. Criddle says the same thing.

    Ridiculous! How could they not let him into some type of Masters of Education program?

    I guarantee he is academically qualified for some stupid grad degree like that.

    Has to be a grad program that SC doesn’t offer, yes?

    Or Exercise Science or some variety of Communications?

    I’ve indicated before that admissions is a larger obstacle than people think. There are a significant number of kids who weren’t let into BYU while the coaches were trying to recruit them. That is the case here. Some of those kids have even had to go to admissions and argue why they are an exception to the department’s rules regarding letting people in that don’t match their equation of success. I think Ty’Son is different. I think he wants to be in communications and that’s why he chose BYU but they only want to let him into MPA. Is is possible he is very sophisticated and thought this would be a way to force BYU to let him in?

    Congrats to Takitaki! 3rd round pick for the Browns!

    Didn't expect him to go that high. Great to see.

    Reports appear to be that Ty'Son Williams was officially admitted.

    Good news.

    Very good news since it seems Ula is transferring

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes.

    Ula wouldn't have been game-ready next season anyway, not at rb at least.

    Looks like BYU is a 6-point underdog for the first game of the year. Too high, too low, or just right? Anyone going to bet this game?

    Are you kidding me? We got Zach Wilson playing for us, and SU in the stands cheering him on! Flip the point spread and the triple it.

    Are you saying Utah should be a 27 point favorite?
