    Volleyball really coming around.

    Utah Volleyball finished the regular season on a 7-1 run, including 5 wins over ranked opponents. Those wins included #2 Washington and sweeps of USC and UCLA, both were ranked. The only loss was to #1 Stanford. The Utes will most likely find themselves in the NCAA tourney. It's good to be in the Pac-12.

    I think the expectations on Arizona were false. They are a very good team.

    Lost a fluke at home and a tough road game against a top 15 team. That's it. They are flat out better than the Utes and the rematch with Oregon will be pretty good.

    Go Cal Bears!!!

    by UtahFanSir

    My HS (Samuel Ayer, Milpitas, CA, 1967-1968) football coach was Jim Green (RIP), a guard for the Golden Bears in 1957, 1958, and 1959. In 1959, Cal went to the Rose Bowl and lost to Iowa (38-12). He was a great coach and wonderful man.

    Anyway, tomorrow I will be a Ute fan first and a Cal fan second.

    I'm not gonna lie, and say that I've watched more than 30 seconds of volleyball in my life, but I'm glad to see another Utah squad doing well.

    Utah now has had ranked teams this year in Football, Basketball, Gymnastics, Volleyball, Skiing, and Swimming. That's pretty impressive, and adds legitimacy to Utah as a PAC12 member.

    The UCLA loss to stanford just means we beat some really good teams this year and lost to some really good teams this year. The UA loss was against a really good team. They are doing the same thing to ASU right now.

    We beat teams that are 7-5, 9-3, and 7-4. We lost 3 teams with 9-3, 10-2, and 10-1 records. We went 3-3 against top 30 teams. If we get the win tomorrow we will be 8-4. It will be the best record since 2010 with a much harder schedule.

    We played some nasty good teams this year and we were super close to winning the south. If we can find some consistency to the offense we will have a huge year soon. This has been a great year and will be even greater after we win tomorrow and the bowl game.

    GO UTES!!!

    I want Arizona to beat ASU and Stanford to beat UCLA so Kyle can spend another off-season

    by TheBaron

    thinking about how Utah was a single win at home from the championship game, but his team showed up unprepared to play. That would make 2 out of 4 seasons that Utah had the championship game in its grasp and didn't show up.

    Watching the AZ ASU game we need someone who can develop qbs and Arod just is not the man for the job

    Pick up one of his ballcaps if your deck needs a good awning.

    Or you could turn it into a ball pit for the kids. The possibilities are endless.

    bowl thoughts

    by pop
    2014-11-28 21:45:42

    Based on the 3 previous years of bowl selections it doesn’t look like they alter the picks much from the actual standings except for when its a tie with another team than it seems like the bowl just selects from the tied teams to get a good match up. I think the sun bowl will probably take stanford over us because they are the bigger name and if miami goes to the sun bowl that will be a big name match up. Also if USU beats BSU and gets into the vegas bowl then the vegas bowl will probably want utah to get a big draw to the game. Just my thoughts. If we lose tomorrow and go 4-5 we will likely tie with wash for 7th and still get selected for the vegas bowl.
    Even though the cactus bowl picks last it might be a good game for us against Big 12 #5 and is on jan 2nd. I think that would be a fun one to go to personally.

    Lia and I are doing a good bit of cleaning and as such were dumping lots of clothes. most of which is in just fine condition. Most of it is Utah stuff, sweatshirts, tee shirts, couple of Under Armour pink sweatshirts and some other stuff. Keep in mind we're both small. Lia is a xsmall-small and I'm a small-medium.

    So if you want any of it Text me and let me know before it all goes to DI.

    they have no business being anywhere near any Top 25.

    They have a decent offense, but have at least four picks today against the stout defense of W. ashley judd. However, their defense is a complete joke. A joke of a schedule is the only thing that has made them successful this year. Any team in the Pac12 South would smoke them.

    At the beginning of the season, did you honestly believe the football team would have wins over all 4 California teams?
