    Man it feels good watching Ute basketball in late March. It's been WAAYYYY too long since I last said that. Everything after this point is just frosting on the cake, but damn do I want to satisfy my inner 5 year old and LOAD up on that frosting!

    How on earth did USC jump us in the final AP poll? Seriously, makes absolutely zero sense.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-13 10:31:40

    One last thing to bitch about with college football this season, I can't figure this out in my head. We curb stomped our bowl opponent while USC eaked out a close win over theirs, neither opponent was that good, neither finished ranked. We actually beat USC head to head AND had the tougher schedule while finishing with the same record.

    It's one spot, in the end, but the AP rankings continue to defy logic. Next year should be interesting, it definitely doesn't get any easier.

    Coach K isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-08 16:12:25

    Jesus, get a grip people, we're not losing this guy for a long time. MAYBE if a top NBA job came calling or one of a half dozen college jobs came calling. Literally there are probably 6 or so college jobs more attractive to a coach like Larry these days, Duke, NC, Kansas, Syracuse, Indiana, and maybe Louisville. He's not going to go to a run of the mill NBA team, he's already coached for 2 average NBA teams (Bucks and Nets) and didn't have a great deal of success doing so. He's not going to go coach for any other college team because they're lateral moves at best.

    Larry K can make money here now that the U is getting full shares of the Pac-12 revenue. If the U really wants to keep him they can pretty much offer any max contract value that Larry could get coaching in the NCAA.

    Finally, what Larry has done was take a program that was in the dumpster and turned them into a LEGIT top-10 team in 3 years. Out west there is exactly one team that is better than the Utes now (and that may be changed in a few weeks once we play them), Arizona. Why go to another P5 conference or higher tier school when you have a program that can now compete for Pac-12 championships, get NCAA bids, and hopefully go deep in the tourney on a regular basis? What am I missing? Unless he has personal reasons he's not going to find a more suitable college coaching position in terms of obtaining the highest goals of this sport. Winning conference championships (P5 conference no less, while not as important as football, is the top of mountain) and having great tournament success on a regular basis is now readily reasonable expectations and out west he is going to have a great chance to do so every year.

    Why leave this situation unless something horrible happens or he personally loses interest? If Larry really wants to he can make Utah into the premier college basketball school in the west. He's built a monster, now he needs to prove he can win in the tourney, then he needs to prove he can do it over several years. What will this team look like when our best players graduate or move on? Can he keep the high level of consistency? These are questions that can motivate Kodiak to stay at Utah and keep winning. We have the facilities, we have the conference affiliation, we have the money, we have the access, we have the history, what else is there?

    I might just turn off the football category until August, there is quite literally nothing positive to read about it right now. Besides, we have a GOLD MINE of Bill Walton quotes and Utah Basketball to talk about for the next several months.

    Why waste so much energy from our inner souls and heart of hearts, let's settle down with some sweet grass, remember the days of John Wesley Powell, take in our beautiful Basketball Program and Dinosaur National Park, and enjoy being alive. Tomorrow we can shampoo our brains, rinse and repeat. Forget all that BS swirling around in the media and our football program, it's out of our hands and out of our grasp, there isn't another snap of competitive Utah Football for 7+ months.

    Let it go, let it flow, let the good times (and roundball) roll.

    8 point win by #2 Duke over a mediocre Wake Forest team, 10 point win by #3 Virginia over a mediocre NC State team, 7 point win by #4 Wisconsin over a mediocre Purdue team, 6 point win by #5 Louisville over a mediocre Clemson team.....25, TWENTY-FIVE, point ASS KICKING by #9 Utah over a mediocre Colorad9 team.

    Can't wait to see what this team has on the road against Pac-12 teams, hoping for another ass kicking @ASU and then a big battle against the Wildcats.

    I was really really good at NCAA 2010, I averaged like 50+ points a game with the Utes team in that game. If KW is just hiring anyone to coach the offense these days....why not me?

    A-rod and Scalley? REALLY?! Put some fucking effort into it, jesus, you're a damn Pac-12 head coach with a top-20 team. Wonder if he just walked into the conference room with all the coaches and asked them "what number am I thinking? Closest two to the actual numbers get to be coaches of the offense and defense."

    More of the same, a dead last offense in the conference and a stout defense that probably gets a lot of input from the head coach.

    This feels like a Big Rick redux. #%!@ the local media.

    2014-12-29 10:07:48

    Good lord, anyone else get the same feeling they had with how local hacks more or less drove Rick out of town? It's the SAME DAMN THING. Local asshats get a whiff of something, start making shit up, and before we know it they've polluted the local waters with enough trash to make anyone and everyone want to leave.

    Regardless of what happens, the U needs to hire a PR manager of some kind to get out ahead of these shitstorms caused by dumbass media hacks trying to stir the pot. It sucks that all this happened over the holidays and it's a sure bet that most of the people who could have snuffed out the fires were away with family. Lord knows the media trolls have nothing better to do than write 120 letter tweets without any substance or backing what-so-ever. I'd hope as a minimum that press passes for all those punks are revoked by the U.

    Don't really know much about the Utes volleyball program, but it's cool to see them do well and the Pac-12 do well as well. 9 times in the final poll is amazing, and USC finished at #27.

    Heh, my how things have changed in the last 5 years. It's like some kind of bizarre college football universe testing us. I seriously let out a good laugh when I saw "Vegas Bowl: Utah vs CSU"

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-12-07 16:39:53

    How strange is that? We start the season hoping to just get bowl eligible with one of the toughest schedules in the country. We have a pretty good year, defense carries us to 8 wins, we knock off some good teams like USC, UCLA, Stanford (I refuse to list Michigan here, they were bad this year, even if it was in the Big House), finish #22 in the rankings....and all I can feel like is we just got kicked in the nuts. How hilarious, after all those years using things like the "BCS graveyard" as motivational things, talking about how pussy shit it was for BCS teams to say "oh we didn't want to be there", and how big it is for our programs history to be knocking off those guys in big bowls. Now we're on the other end.

    Time to pay the karma piper? I don't know. I just find it kind of funny. Vegas is a lousy bowl, it always has been, even when we were fighting for the top of the MWC. But it's relatively close, relatively cheap to get to, and it's a chance to see the Utes play another football game in 2014. I'm indifferent about CSU and quite honestly I have absolutely no idea what they'll bring to the game.

    When you have such a lousy, predictable offense and rely so heavily on your defense and special teams these things happen. Teams lose games when they can't score more than 16 points.

    by PDXUtefan

    Lots of bad coaching decisions tonight and lots of bad offense. Every team knows what is coming and without any aerial threat it is easy to defend against us. It's hard to blame Andy, you kick enough FG's you are eventually going to miss one or two, it's a big miss but he shouldn't been carrying this team on the scoreboard every single week.

    Whitt's conservative nature, by heart, will get him canned. Conservative does not work in this conference. When you're up by 21 you go out and score 21 more points. You go for it on 4th and inches. You counter punch for punch. That's how Pac-12 teams

    Having said that, the play last night was pretty pathetic outside the first quarter. I'm sorry, did any o-line players actually suit up? Tissue paper soft, they couldn't block a pop warner defense. And Wilson needs to settle the #%!@ down, happy feet and dancing don't help. Dres? When the ball hits you in the hands you have no excuse.

    There was just a total breakdown in all aspects of the game, from the coaching on down.

    Game 1 down, mark it as a win. Like any first week game there are still a lot of things to work on. After watching that there is almost nothing I can take away from the game. So many question marks still in my head, I just don't feel like any concerns I had going into the game were addressed. On one hand I saw so SO many bad things, but it's the first week. On the other hand we demolished Idaho St., but they're a horrible team.

    Right now there is clearly an issue with refs calling fouls they think are fouls, but really aren't. Adding MORE eyes, and more humans, just means more people to make mistakes. Again, EDUCATING and holding them to a higher standard is a better...

    This UNC vs Winsonsin game is FANTASTIC. If our game tomorrow is this good I won't be pissed if we lose. It's just too much fun watching two good teams go toe to toe trading blows down the stretch.
    (33 days ago, 0 stars)

    I think we should start both Poeltl and Bachynski. Put Bach on Okafer defensively and make him earn every single point he gets. When Bach fouls out you put Olsen on him, hack Okafer every time he gets near the rim with the ball.

    Terrible gameplan by the Ducks, I realize Wisconsin has a size advantage inside but the cold shooting from the outside means you have to at least get to the line. 0 FT's in the 2nd half.

    I'd say going 9-4 with only 2 losses being greater than a TD (to the division champs no less) qualifies as being competitive in the conference, but you know, whatever.

    For some reason the saying "if a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a noise?" comes to mind. Having this game on P12N might be good for the channel, but it's not good for the conference.

    I can't even believe they opened at UA -6, all predictors have this game as a straight toss up. Look for a ton of money on the Utes, Vegas could lose a bundle on that line if it plays out like the predictors think.
