How bad are things? "We're moving a LB to QB"

Utah (3-4, 0-4) has not made the first year splash they had hoped to make in the Pac 12. The last time the Utes finished a season with 4 losses was 2007 when they finished 9-4 in Whittingham's 3rd season.

The season has been filled with conference losses, turnovers, and perhaps most glaringly, injuries. The Utes have lost 5 key players to injuries in their first 7 games of the season. Three of those players have already undergone surgery which will likely end their season, including Jordan Wynn their starting quarterback.

Because of the injuries, Kyle Whittingham is taking linebacker Griff Robles and is moving him to quarterback. The idea isn't as far fetched as it seems, as Robles originally came to Utah as a quarterback before being moved to linebacker.

Let's face it, it's never a great thing to be moving a linebacker to quarterback (even if he came in as a QB).
