Ute Insiders: Looking for answers to Utah’s woes on the road (podcast)

Utah’s Timmy Allen, left, maneuvers against Oregon’s Will Richardson during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in Eugene, Ore., Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020.

The road difficulties continued for the Runnin’ Utes last week in the Beaver State, where they dropped games to Oregon State and Oregon, keeping them winless away from home during Pac-12 play. So what’s the problem? The ball? (A different brand ball is used on the road than when they are at home.) Youth? (Fifteen of their 17 players are underclassmen.) Transfers? (Where is Donnie Tillman when you need him?) Ute Insiders Dirk Facer, Mike Sorensen, Jody Genessy and special guest Parker Van Dyke take aim at the issue and look ahead to this week’s games at home against UCLA (Thursday) and USC (Sunday). They also talk Utah football position battles as spring camp nears and news that a home-and-home with LSU has been added to the Utes’ schedule, albeit down the road 11 years. That and more on this week’s episode.
