Utah Utes, Utah State football: Tradition or rivalry?

first_img Utah Utes football: Preparation key to Johnson’s success E-mail: sor@desnews.com Relatedcenter_img With each lopsided Ute win, the annual in-state football game between Utah and Utah State becomes less of a rivalry.Or so it seems.Utah has won 10 straight games, the longest streak in the 107-year history of the series, and the average score during that time is 34-12. Since 1980 the series stands 24-4 in Utah’s favor and in the last three trips to Logan, Utah has won by an average of 37 points.The Utes and Aggies meet again Saturday in a 6 p.m. contest at Romney Stadium in Logan.If you ask Utah fans, many say it isn’t much of a rivalry any more.”It’s more of a tradition than a competitive rivalry,” said Todd Fuller, a Ute fan for more than 40 years. “But I still enjoy it. I’m all for keeping the in-state tradition alive.””We have other things to worry about,” said Geoff Gough, a MUSS member and longtime Ute fan. “We have BYU as our main rival. Utah State is more of a friendly in-state game.”On the other side, Utah State fans still see it as a rivalry, where hope springs eternal.”Up here, we see it slightly more of a rivalry than down in Salt Lake,” said Jay Wamsley, who has worked at Utah State for 26 years and been a fan even longer. “In the back of everybody’s mind, they can remember when John L. Smith beat Utah twice 10 years ago and that five years ago we almost beat BYU here. So there’s always hope that on any given Saturday we could win.”Of course, the coaches and players on both sides insist that the rivalry means something.”We’ve had some tough battles up there with the Aggies,” said Ute coach Kyle Whittingham. “We seem to get their best shot and their best effort each time. As history usually proves, it’s a tough place to play.”Actually, coach, history shows Logan is not a tough place to play for Utah, at least not lately. The average score of the last three games is 40-3 with Utah winning 48-0 in 2006, 48-6 in 2004 and 23-3 in 2002.But Whittingham still sees the game as a rivalry because of the proximity and the “recruiting wars” between the two schools.”We do consider it a rivalry even though of late it hasn’t been very competitive as far as the win-loss,” he said. “But it is a rivalry nonetheless in our eyes.”Utah State receiver Otis Nelson grew up in Salt Lake, where he attended Hunter High, so he is aware of the rivalry.”I can’t wait for this game every year,” said Nelson. “My whole family will be there and a lot of friends will be there. I have a very good friend who plays for them. It’s always a fun game to play.”Utah State coach Brent Guy believes his team will be ready this week because it’s Utah.”We get to play at home against a rival, which I think will help a little bit,” he saidUte starting middle linebacker Mike Wright, who played for Bountiful High, actually grew up as a Utah State fan and used to attend USU games in Romney Stadium.”I’m definitely aware of the rivalry,” he said. “My dad went to Utah State and tried to raise me as an Aggie fan. I used to go up there all the time and definitely always saw the Utah-Utah State game, so this is definitely a big game for me. It’s a good time, a good atmosphere up there to watch a football game in Logan.”Although he is from Las Vegas, linebacker Stevenson Sylvester is more cognizant of the rivalry because his cousin, Geno Odong, is a sophomore cornerback for the Aggies and they talk all the time.”In-state rivalries are big and people talk about rivalries all year,” Sylvester said. “Rivalries are always big because you never know what’s going to happen. We can’t take them lightly because anything can happen.”Since the first game in 1892 — a 12-0 Aggie victory — the Utah-Utah State annual game has been played every year but three since 1900. The game wasn’t played in the middle of World War II (1943), in the middle of World War I (1918) or in 1912, for some reason. After playing nearly every year for the past 108 years, the Ute-Aggie series will come to a halt in 2010 when it takes a two-year hiatus. Utah State agreed to not play that year, so Utah could take the opportunity to play Notre Dame in South Bend. But the two schools insist the rivalry, or at least the Utah-Utah State tradition, will continue after that.

Utah Utes football: Alive and kicking for fall ball

Utah Utes football: Alive and kicking for fall ball

first_imgPerhaps the biggest improvement for the Utah football team since completing spring ball has come in the kicking game.Coach Kyle Whittingham has expressed praise throughout fall camp and, going into the season, the Utes are confident in both their punting and placekicking abilities.Senior Ben Vroman has excelled in the placekicking department, making all but one of his field goal attempts in the three scrimmages, and he looks to be an able replacement for Louie Sakoda.A couple of guys who have been overlooked are 19-year-old redshirt freshmen, Sean Sellwood and Patrick Greene, who will be key components on the special teams.Sellwood, a native of South Africa, moved to Utah three years ago and played for Judge Memorial, where he set the school record for punts at more than 44 yards per kick. He’ll take over the punting duties Sakoda has handled the past four years and also will be the holder on placekicks.Greene, a native of Southern California, was discovered at a long-snapper combine and chose to come to Utah over a couple of other Mountain West Conference schools, TCU and Air Force. He’ll be the long snapper for both punts and placekicks.The two have worked closely all summer on getting their timing down, and they were thrilled to be awarded scholarships last week when two-a-day camp concluded.”I’ve definitely upped my game from the spring,” said Sellwood. “I feel a lot more confident and comfortable. I’m getting a lot more hang time and distance on my punts now. I understand the punt scheme a lot better — it’s all about helping get the team the right field position.”As for being the holder, Sellwood says he is very comfortable in the position he’s never played before, calling it an “easy job” but with “a lot of responsibility.” “We’ve got our timing down, that’s just repetitions,” he said. “That’s not even an issue.”Greene is taking over for Clint Mower, who handled Utah’s long-snapping duties for the past three seasons. An all-Southern California linebacker at Monrovia High, Greene was offered a Division II scholarship but knew his future would be in long snapping, something he’s done since seventh grade. So he accepted Utah’s offer to walk on.”It’s all in the wrists and follow-through,” he said. “If you don’t have a good follow-through, you really can’t snap. It’s taken me since seventh grade to get it down.”Greene acknowledges there’s a lot of pressure involved with his job. A poor snap can mean the difference in a win and a loss, especially if it sails over the punter’s head or ends up in the placekicker’s chest rather than the holder’s hands.In fact, Greene hopes no one even knows who he is out on the field.”The only way someone recognizes you is if you mess up,” he said. “As long as no one knows my name, it’s a good thing.”The solid play of Sellwood, Greene and Vroman has eased the concerns of Utah special teams coach Jay Hill.”Coming out of spring, I was worried about consistency,” Hill said. “The biggest thing we’ve seen this fall is the exact opposite of that. Sean has been a real consistent punter — he’s done a nice job of hanging the ball up nice and high. If he kicks the ball like he has in camp, we won’t miss a beat from where Louie was at all.”Hill also likes the fact that Sellwood is both the holder and the punter and works with Greene on both.”That’s good because those guys can work together all day,” he said. “The last four years we had (Eric) Weddle and (Bradon) Godfrey as the holder, and they’d have practice and couldn’t work with (the snapper) all day.”Hill points out that games can be a different story than practice, recalling the start of the ’06 season and being nervous about Sakoda when the team played at UCLA.”I was scared to death the way Louie had been punting in camp, but he went out there and had the game of his life,” Hill said.From what he’s seen so far this month, Hill is optimistic the Ute kicking game will be in good shape this fall.”It’ll be interesting when a game is on the line to see exactly how they do,” Hill said “You never quite know, but I love where they’re at right now.”EXTRA POINTS: On the injury front, there’s nothing new to Whittingham said there was nothing different to report on the injury front. defensive end Koa Misi (back) is still doubtful for the season-opener, while Walter Watts and Caleb Schlauderaff are questionable with knee injuries. … Junior offensive lineman Daniel Bukarau took some reps with the No. 1 offense and is now in the mix to play against Utah State. … Defensive tackle J.T. Tofaeono, a true freshman, has been moved from defensive tackle to offensive guard to help with depth at the position.e-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Utah Championship gets prime 2011 tourney dates

Utah Championship gets prime 2011 tourney dates

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — After years of holding its golf tournament in the fall, the Utah Championship will get a prime summer date for 2011.The Nationwide Tour released its 2011 schedule this week and has moved the Utah Championship to the week of July 25-31 at Willow Creek Country Club. For most of the past 12 years, the tournament has been contested either the first or second week of September.”We’re real excited where we’re at,” said tournament director Mike Smith. “This puts us in the prime of the golf season. In the past, we’ve had to compete with college football, little league football and the start of school. We won’t have those distractions to compete with now.”Smith gave a lot of credit to the Utah Sports Commission, headed by Jeff Robbins, for helping secure the new dates for the tournament. The Sports Commission has been the presenting sponsor for the tournament for the past several years.The Nationwide Tour first came to Utah in 1990 when it was called the Ben Hogan Tour and John Daly won the inaugural event at Riverside Country Club. After being played in Utah for five years, it left for four years before returning in 1999 as the Nike Utah Classic. Last year, Michael Putnam won the tournament.e-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Mike Sorensen: To keep or not to keep Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, that is the question

Mike Sorensen: To keep or not to keep Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, that is the question

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — By now, the Jazz may have already made a decision concerning the fate of longtime Jazz player, assistant coach and head coach for the past three-plus years, Tyrone Corbin.If so, you can stop reading right now.If not, here are a few reasons the Jazz should keep or not keep Corbin as their coach.KEEP: First of all, Corbin is a good guy. There’s no real disputing that. Going back to the time he played for the Jazz in the 1990s, he was one of my favorite Jazz players because he was always respectful of the media and never acted like a knucklehead in any way. He didn’t hide in the training room or belittle a dumb question. He’s been the same way as the Jazz’s coach, never avoiding interviews or offbeat questions. It’s always best if you can have a good guy representing your franchise in perhaps the most visible position to the outside world.NOT KEEP: The Jazz are coming off a 25-57 record, their second-worst since coming to Utah 35 years ago and the fourth-worst in the NBA this season. When your team is that bad and fans aren’t coming out, change is usually necessary.KEEP: Corbin was dealt a bad hand this year. General manager Dennis Lindsey admitted that the Jazz finished pretty close to where he and other management types figured they would at 25-57. If that’s the case, how can the Jazz justify letting a coach go that they basically set up for failure? If the Jazz brass figured on a 25-win season, then Corbin hit the bull’s-eye.NOT KEEP: Before the season, Lindsey emphasized the three “Ds” — development, discipline and defense — for this year’s team. Corbin did well for the most part in development by giving young players Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter Alec Burks and Trey Burke plenty of playing time, although you wonder why he didn’t go with that lineup a little sooner than the final four games. The team had discipline — no one got in trouble and the players were disciplined in their approach to the game.As for defense, you’d have to say the Jazz were a failure this season. They ended up ranked No. 30 in the league in defense out of 30 teams. You can’t blame poor shooting on a coach, but defense is another matter.KEEP: Who will the Jazz get that will be better than Corbin? Phil Jackson’s not coming through that door and Jerry Sloan isn’t about to come out of retirement. I’ve always said, you better have a better coach in mind before you make a change and if the Jazz don’t have such a coach, maybe they shouldn’t make a change, just to make a change.NOT KEEP: Corbin seems to struggle as a bench coach. Too many times he would stick with the same lineup in a game when a change seemed obvious and too many times the Jazz would lose leads in the final quarter. The latter could be blamed on young players not knowing how to finish. Or on a coach not knowing exactly what to do. Successful coaches are quick to make adjustments in the fast-paced NBA game and in that regard Corbin has been lacking.So what are the Jazz going to do? The fact that Corbin was not given a contract extension before the season began was a good clue that he wasn’t likely to be the coach beyond this season no matter what happened — outside of a berth in the playoffs. And the Jazz would have had to win twice as many games as they did to achieve that goal.Perhaps the biggest reason why Corbin won’t be back is the lack of fannies in the seats. EnergySolutions Arena was the greenest (empty seats) it’s ever been during games since its opening in 1993 and interest is so low that scalpers are practically giving tickets away before every game. The Jazz have committed themselves to rebuilding with young players and now they’re likely to find a new coach to guide the youngsters and bring some hope to the Jazz faithful.The Jazz haven’t let a head coach go since Dec. 11, 1981 when Frank Layden replaced Tom Nissalke. That’s an astounding record for a sports franchise when coaches are fired at the drop of a hat these days. Whether it’s right or not, it may well happen this week for the first time in more than 32 years.last_img read more

In a season of ups and downs, mostly ups, ex-Ute Matt Gay is enjoying his NFL experience at Tampa Bay

In a season of ups and downs, mostly ups, ex-Ute Matt Gay is enjoying his NFL experience at Tampa Bay

first_img Former Utah Ute and Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie kicker Matt Gay (9) warms up before an NFL game against the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019. Matt Gay 2019 statistics with Buccaneers FG made Long FG The day before, Gay had been on the sidelines a few miles away at Husky Stadium, wearing a Tampa Bay hat, cheering his former teammates to a big victory over Washington.“It was cool to see those guys — they’re having a great year, a heckuva season,” said Gay, who said he mostly keeps in touch with the Ute specialists as well as star running back Zack Moss.“I haven’t performed as well as I want to, haven’t performed to my ability, I don’t think,” he said. “As a rookie, you figure out some new things and make some adjustments. I’m happy with where I’m at, but I don’t think it’s up to par with what I think I can do.”Gay and his wife have a two-month-old son, born the week before the opening game and he said they’ve settled into life in Tampa well. “We’re loving it,” he said. “It’s a nice city, good people out there, we’re settling into a lot of changes in the last few months.” Gay is well aware of the life an NFL placekicker lives with two extremes — players who get released after a couple of poor performances or those who last into their 40s like Indianapolis’ Adam Vinatieri or Atlanta’s Matt Bryant. “You want to have goals and I have high expectations for myself,” he said. “I want to be the best kicker in the NFL. I don’t like to be average in anything I do. I like to strive for perfection, strive for excellence, just taking it one kick at a time, obviously, but the end goal is to become one of the greats.” Former Utah Ute and Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Matt Gay (9) makes a field goal against the Seattle Seahawks during the NFL football game in Seattle on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019.

Allred, Deseret News Former Utah Ute and Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Matt Gay (9) makes a field goal against the Seattle Seahawks during the NFL football game in Seattle on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019. Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News SEATTLE — Except for that one bad day earlier in the season, it’s been a successful and productive rookie season for former Utah placekicker Matt Gay.The two-time first team all-Pac-12 selection and Lou Groza Award winner was the first kicker taken overall in last year’s NFL Draft selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who were looking to solve a decade’s worth of frustration at the placekicker position.The Bucs had run through 11 different kickers since 2008 before drafting Gay, who was one of just two kickers taken in the draft and inked a four-year $2.8 million contract with a signing bonus of $325,772. PAT att. 16 19 After booting a pair of field goals against Seattle last week, Gay is now tied for sixth in the NFL in field goals with 16 on the season, tied for 11th in percentage at 84.2 percent and his 58-yarder against the Rams is tied for the second-longest in the NFL this year. “Yeah it’s been good, there’s been ups and there’s been downs but overall I feel like I’m adjusting and getting the hang of it,” he told the Deseret News last week after his team lost to the Seahawks in overtime. “It’s kind of come full circle from when I started kicking and I look back to see how far I’ve come. There’s still a long way to go for me. I have high expectations. I need to keep trending up.” 20 Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News Related Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News Gay has been trending up since a Sept. 22 game against the New York Giants when he had his biggest down as he missed two extra points (one blocked) and after kicking four field goals in the game, missed a 34-yarder in the final seconds that would have won the game.After the 32-31 loss, there was speculation in the media and on fan websites that Gay could be fired right then and there, perhaps an overreaction to all the placekicking troubles the franchise had experienced over the past decade. Such a thing has happened many times over the years in the NFL. However, Bucs coach Bruce Arians was supportive, saying of Gay “he ain’t going anywhere.” As for the Bucs’ bad luck with kickers, Arians said, “This history (expletive) — this is a new team. Just go kick it.”Since that bad day in September, Gay hasn’t missed an extra point and has made nine of 10 field goals. His only miss was a 50-yarder at the end of the first half against Seattle, his first miss from over 50 yards in four tries.

Tampa Bay Buccaneer and former Ute Matt Gay watches the Utes in Seattle on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019. Utah won 33-28. Of his NFL experience, Gay said “it’s kind of what I expected for the most part,” but he acknowledges that the pressure is much more intense at the pro level.“Everything is much more serious than college, every kick matters a lot more than it did,” he said. “In college you’re not stressed about missing a kick and then losing your scholarship and losing your job. Here in the NFL, you can have one bad week and you could be sent home.”Thankfully for him that didn’t happen seven weeks ago.Not that there was no pressure in college, but Gay said he’s had to adjust his mindset for every minute from practice through the games.“You want to have goals and I have high expectations for myself. I want to be the best kicker in the NFL. I don’t like to be average in anything I do. I like to strive for perfection, strive for excellence, just taking it one kick at a time, obviously, but the end goal is to become one of the greats.” — Matt Gay“Every kick matters, every rep matters, there’s more pressure. Even in practice, everyone’s watching your stuff too. You can’t just come out lazy in practice and take a day off. Every single kick in practice and games — it all matters, there’s more on the line.”Gay’s story, his dramatic rise from college soccer player at Utah Valley University to becoming the national Lou Groza Award winner in one year, has been well-documented. Even to Gay, it’s a blur to remember how he walked on at the U. and quickly rose from third-string and got the job because the starting kicker barely missed a 45-yard field goal in the first game.“He had a great couple of years here and really came out of nowhere,” said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. “He just showed up at our doorstep and was a guy that had a lot of natural ability but didn’t have much football experience — and ended up becoming a tremendous kicker, one of the best kickers in the country.”Gay claims he had big aspirations from the start.“That was a goal when I started to kick,” he said. “I was going to go for it to be in the NFL, when I set out to do this. I said ‘I’m going to go for it quickly into my career at Utah, I’ve got a shot at this.’ Looking back, I didn’t think I’d actually get here, but here I am.”This year, the lack of wins — the Buccaneers fell to 2-6 with the overtime loss to Seattle — has been hard on Gay, who was used to winning in his two years at Utah, including last season’s Pac-12 South title.He was down after the Seattle defeat, lamenting his miss at the end of the first half that could have made a difference in the outcome since the Bucs lost in overtime.“It was left . . . I pulled it . . . rushed the process and came into it too quick,” he said, dissecting his miss. 22 FG att.

Who is Leki Fotu? He’s not only massive, he has athleticism to make an impact in the NFL

first_img How Big Mac sauce, teammate John Penisini and family contribute to Utah defensive lineman Leki Fotu’s success SALT LAKE CITY — Anyone who’s seen Leki Fotu up close, knows what a massive man he is. At 6-foot-5, 325 pounds he was a first-team all-conference player for the University of Utah and a third-team AP all-American. He’s likely to be selected on the final day of this year’s NFL draft or perhaps the second, with most experts saying he’ll be chosen anywhere from the third to the fifth round. Along with his size, Fotu is known for his athleticism, which Utes defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley knows better than anyone.“Not only is he a run stopper but he’s got the athleticism to be a solid pass rusher for you,” Scalley told the Deseret News. “He’s played rugby at a high level, which has allowed him to move and work on that athleticism.” Utah defensive linemen Leki Fotu named to ESPN’s preseason All-America team Related Ute coach Kyle Whittingham said Fotu is a player that other teams were forced to double-team because of his size and athleticism. “Leki Fotu is a force inside,” Whittingham said. “He’s immovable. He’s a big, strong kid — light on his feet. He’s as good of a run stuffer as we’ve ever had here at Utah and on top of that he’s extremely bright as well.”“I’m excited to make a huge impact at the next level. Whichever team drafts me, their defensive line just got a whole lot bigger.” — Leki FotuFotu prepped at Utah’s Herriman High where he played defensive end and earned all-state honors and was named 5A MVP by the Deseret News. When he came to Utah, he moved inside to the defensive tackle position, where he became a part-time starter as a sophomore before earning all-league honors the next two years.Fotu was one of the Ute captains this past season and earlier this week he received the Ute Proud Most Inspirational award at the annual Crimson Carpet Awards as voted on by University of Utah athletes.“I’m excited to make a huge impact at the next level. Whichever team drafts me, their defensive line just got a whole lot bigger,” Fotu said. “I’m a big man that plays the defensive tackle position at a high level. I have confidence in my game. I’m going to do my job and make my mark felt at the next level.”last_img read more
