Putting on full pads and going live for the first time, Utah's running backs looked right at home. Whether it was Troy McCormick finding a seam right up the middle of the field, to Bubba Poole beating out the defense on a sweep, to Devontae Booker spinning his way out of a tackle for a loss and running up the other side of the gridiron. Dennis Erickson looked pretty satisfied with the production of his backs, particula...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Let’s set the record straight: It’s not a motivational tactic, and it’s not because Kyle Whittingham loves chaos. It’s because Assistant Athletics Director Liz Abel sends her weekly release out on Monday mornings and, at that time, offensive coordinator Dave Christensen was still analyzing the tape from last week’s practice. Christensen’s most drastic moves come on the offensive line and at recei...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Small bands of fabric looped together the section of his white top that had been ripped by a defender trying to bring him down. It was a tough task to drag Booker to the turf in Saturday’s spring game as he ran 103 yards on 19 carries with a pair of touchdowns, highlighting a position the Utes have come to see as a strength this spring. “Every game I’m playing, I’m looking forward to making a statement,” he said. ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

He mentions Devontae Booker. Thursday’s practice was the third straight in which the junior transfer gashed Utah’s defense on seemingly every other handoff, his red No. 27 disappearing into a swarm of black jerseys and emerging on the other side at the same speed. “He’s a natural with the ball in his hands,” Whittingham says. “There’s a lot more to a running back...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
