I am a trial attorney. As critical as we attorneys like to think we are to the success of a trial, the preparation and quality of our witnesses and evidence is even more important. In a fair, unbiased courtroom, even the very best attorney will occasionally lose a case.
My point? Give Kyle Whittingham a break. Change three or four plays this year and the Utes would have had a much better season. Let's reserve our judgment. A friend in Gainesville, Fla., recently sent me a picture of a "Fire Meyer" T-shirt. Is Urban Meyer a bad coach? No. Neither is Whittingham a bad coach. Let's give him a year or two before we pass judgment.
