Who starts at quarterback? Open to interpretation. Changes at receiver, on the offensive line? It could happen. Will Tevin Carter or Jacoby Hale play? Wait and see. Kyle Whittingham has a blanket explanation for all the decisions he and his coaching staff make, one he reiterated as the Utes were packing up to fly back to Salt Lake City with another narrow victory: “What...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Funchess possesses virtually every physical advantage. Hatfield’s edge is mental: He knows from film study that if Funchess breaks inside out of this formation, he’ll run a slant or a post. At the snap, he runs the post. Hatfield jumps the route and is in Funchess’ back pocket. Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner sees the tight coverage and is forced to check down.

Chris Stewart is a prominent spokesman for my party. As a green elephant (environmentally conscientious Republican), I appreciate his comment, “None of us wants to see a species go extinct.” I hope this sentiment will become one people automatically associate with the GOP.

Calling PCMR’s failure to renew the lease a “clerical error” is like referring to the civil war as the “unpleasantness” of the 19th century. 2. It is unlikely that the economic sky will fall in either Summit county or Utah regardless of who prevails in this dispute. (a.) Even if PCMR were not to operate in 2014-2015 many of their patrons are likely to visit Deer Valley or the Canyons. (b.)

So when Cassel re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings in the offseason and started to digest Norv Turner’s new system, he knew he’d have to work harder and study longer than he ever had before to win the starting job. Mission accomplished. Cassel was named the starting quarterback over first-round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583352442014-08-26T18:11:27.537-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-26T18:11:27.537-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
