Kudos and thankls to @GhostofBarrySwitzer and everyone involved in the KUTV Talkin’ Utes show. Utah intercollegiate athletics needs all the NIL help it can get.
We just want to announce also that the Extra Point Vidcasts are Utefans.net’s NIL project. The athletes are being paid for their appearances. Viewership is growing rapidly–beyond all expectations, really–and as that continues the show will be increasingly attractive to advertisers and to donors. We’ll then be able to pay the guests more. Right now we’re covering only our costs and the payments to the athletes (who love the arrangement–Ute athletes are not rolling in money and are grateful for any extra cash they can get).
Every show will be linked here in this thread. Please keep sharing the links!
In the vidcasts the approach that Jordan Wynn, Cal Beck, and Andy Brown are taking is to emphasize the student-athlete’s progress, with an emphasis on life after football. They are starting with football players, and as time passes we will see more athletes from the women’s sports and from what are called the “non-revenue sports.” Basketball will be one focus during that season. As we hope you’ve seen, we are spotlighting the very best faces of Utah intercollegiate athletics, with guests like Devaughn Vele, Jordan Noyes, Bryson Barnes, Jaylon Glover, and Solomon Enis from football; and with Dasia Young and Alissa Pili from women’s basketball.
Spread the word! The hosts are great, knowledgeable, and have excellent chemistry. They’re making a show that Ute fans can be proud of.
Here’s the link to the post-USC game show. I think it’s their best effort yet. This week’s guests are the Utes’ Devaugn Vele and Steve Bartle of 247 Sports. Watch for smart analysis by co-hosts Jordan Wynn and Cal Beck, former Ute stars with a deep knowledge of football and Utes culture and history. Together with Host Andy Brown, they’re also funny and actually like each other! Some guy claiming to be @NewbombTurk also pops up on this episode.
