    • Apparently Carrington is the invisible man, again. Not only does the opposing D lose him, his own QB can't see him. #UTAHvsUSC // 5 days ago
    • What the Hell, PAC 12 refs? First you screw Utah on a delay of game, then you don't review the ball spot for the 1st down? #UTAHvsUSC // 5 days ago
    • Perfect demo why you don't just hit, you WRAP UP. C'mon Utes D, don't give them extra chances for 1st downs on second efforts. #UTAHvsUSC // 5 days ago
    • Utah loss takeaway: T. Williams can't make his reads fast enough. Why did Taylor abandon run in 2nd half? What's w/ the longsnapper issues? // 1 week ago

But let’s admit it, paintball is an obscure sport. Unlike more traditional activities like basketball, baseball, or soccer, most people don’t get much, if any, exposure to paintball as they grow up.
