Urban Meyer to Speak at Union Ballroom Today

By , , , and

New Utah football coach Urban Meyer will be in the Union Ballroom today at 12:30 p.m. for a meet and greet with university students and fans.

Coach Meyer will answer questions from the crowd and talk about his vision for the U football team, which he has said will include spreading out the offense and airing it out more than the old system implemented by former coach Ron McBride, whose Utes went 5-6 a year ago after winning their last three games.

There will be free sub sandwiches, cookies and drinks at the gathering. Also, sweatshirts, autographed footballs and Utah Football Fan Club memberships will be given away.

The spring football season for Meyer and the Utes begins March 27, a week after players get back from Spring Break. The spring season will consist of 15 practices from March 27 to April 15.

Utah’s 2003 fall football schedule kicks off with a Thursday home contest against Utah State Aug. 28. The Utes have non-conference games against Texas A&M, California and Oregon.
