The Utes also used to have better football players. They may have more good players now, but they had more great players in the Sugar Bowl season of 2008.

Langi is the former 5A football MVP who picked the University of Utah over USC, Stanford and others out of Bingham High and played a year at running back for the Utes before a church mission to Tampa, Fla. Two and a half weeks ago, ex-BYU player Vai Sikahema reported in the Deseret News that Langi wanted to transfer to BYU and would be immediately eligible to compete for the Cougars because of a loophole in NCA...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

One about KISS. Nobody even mentioned Oklahoma transfer Kendal Thompson. But on his fourth Pac-12 Media Day, most reporters wanted Kyle Whittingham to address just how much his once-perennial bowl team has been affected — for good and bad — by its membership in the Pac-12. His answer was no surprise. A lot. Utah is better than they were when they entered the Pac-12, Whittingham said.

Offseason job speculation is a national pastime in college football and ESPN’s Ted Miller ranked Whittingham’s job security 11th out of the 12 conference coaches heading into 2014. The only coach to trail Whittingham? California coach Sonny Dykes, who led the Golden Bears to a 1-11 record in 2013.
