They hadn't been playing for several weeks and this was their first live action. Injuries happen when players aren't used to getting hit or try to do too much too quick.
There's a lot to that season that's off.
But if you're Utah, the prospects of having had a full season with Rising, Jordan, Kuithe, Kincaid, Covey, Lloyd and Clark Phillips is fun to think about.
Can't fault the Utah program. We've all seen over time how much potential that team had.
Not fair it was cut short for essentially politically motivated purposes. SMH.
