Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn has decided to retire from football after injuring his shoulder last Friday night against Utah State. Wynn is looking at possibly his fourth surgery and told coach Kyle Whittingham he “fought the good fight” after a pair of previous season-ending shoulder injuries.
Meanwhile . . .
— Oregon safety John Boyett will have surgery on both knees and is done for the season, he told the Napa Register. Boyett said he has partial tears of both patellar tendons.
— Denver Post long-time columnist John Henderson is calling Colorado’s 30-28 loss to Sacramento State the worst in school history, for a number of reasons:
“One, Sac State is an FCS team, the modern equivalent of I-AA; two, it was a bad FCS team. It finished 4-7 last year and lost its best players who were mostly injured a year ago. It was picked ninth in the Big Sky this year. Three, this is Colorado coach Jon Embree’s second year, not his first. No coach in his second year should lose to an FCS school at home. Four, Colorado got manhandled. This wasn’t a case of dumb Colorado turnovers turning into a fluke loss. Sac State dominated the line of scrimmage for nearly 500 yards total offense and drove 74 yards for the winning field goal on the last play of the game. Nothing else in the history of Colorado football matches that humiliation. I can’t imagine anything else ever will.”
