Quote from Delshawn: "My relationship with the coaches, the
opportunity to play for Norm Chow and the fact that Utah is in the Pac-12 were
the big reasons for my decision"One can also site Wilson,
Hansen having the same reasons.
I can't believe that Tom Holmoe didn't win the Athletic Director of the Year.
After all, he got us into the Independant League.
Hill's selections, for Head Basketball Coach, at The University of Utah, have
brought a once proud basketball program to its knees."...among
the top AD's in the nation...".Is he just competing with the AD
at Ohio State?
Yes. Delshawn went to the U to play so he could play in the pac12....And because no other pac12 team was even the faintest bit interested. But
good get. Im sure he'll fit right in.
Top AD's? Really? I don't think sinking your basketball program into nothingness
qualifies one to be top AD. I guess getting Utah into the PAC-12 and now having
an elitist attitude about it makes everything better.
Here are the four winners for the FBS Football category:Kathy

South CarolinaWhat does this mean? Is this like what the Nobel
Peace Prize has turned into?
You would think being a "top" athletic director means you have a
successful all around athletic program. Outside of football and gymnastics,
there isn't much else to brag about. Oh well, congrats anyway.
WOW! I knew this would bring out the kittens in full force and I was right!!Great to be a Ute!!Nice job Hill! You deserve all the
accolades you get!
VegasUte,Looking forward to Sept. 17th...when your overrated Utes
come to Provo, to do their best impression of your basketball team...don't need
to say much more than that...other than your Utesies will be crying big ute
tears as they start their maiden PAC10.2 campaign 0-3 once they leave
Provo...such a shame, and on National primetime TV too...GO COUGS!

Utah beat out AZ. St. He choose Utah (sight unseen) because of his strong
belief in coach Chow. I wonder if Domain draws even a tenth of the admiration
Doesn't J.J. O'Brien know that the Utes will be in the PAC10.2? It's the
conference of champions and trumps all other conferences.
Hedgie said, "Fail. Utah beat out AZ. St. He choose Utah (sight unseen)

tenth of the admiration Chow demands?"Better to have one
unknown than a proven eventual failure.
Chris did not do so great in basketball but he did bring us to the Pac 12. By
the way, Pac 12 gear will be available on July 1 so I expect all Utes to be
wearing the gear. I will be wearing it everywhere I go. I wonder if
we can find Independent golf shirts? I'm certain we'll see the "We stand
alone" shirts shortly after the Pac 12 gear comes out.
MichiganCoog: Too funnY. I will love September 17 when Hypes will continue to
flounder and the Utes will make all kittens see why they are stuck with
independence/irrelevance and with the WCC, whatever that is!Have fun
with your irrelevance and with the Dons and Toreros in their Jr. High School
gyms!!It is indeed GREAT to be a Ute!!The future is
Crimson - get Used to it!
Indeed grating to be a Ute...The future is truely going to be Crimson. Crimson
in the faces of Ute fans, as a result of embarrassing losses to teams like San
Diego, Pepperdine, and Houston Baptist...the next in line will be Montana State
on the gridiron. Yeah, exciting times are ahead LOL!
Vince Biegel is back in play for BYU. hahahahahahahah Life is sweet. It won't be
long until Chase Hansen follows suit.I'd be nervous if I were you. Your
Lone Peak Basketball Recruit may not be the only Ute to wise up and go down
@kamuteSo I was in San Francisco last summer and went to the sports
apparel store on Pier 49. In it they had a section of fangear that included all
of the teams in the pac10 including Colorado but for some reason there wasn't
any utah gear in it at all. They also had an entire section that was nothing but
BYU gear. I was perplexed by this as utah is of course a new pac10
member and BYU is a lowly independent. So I asked them about it and they told me
that no one, not one person ever, had requested university of utah gear. BYU on
the otherhand is their biggest seller outside of Cal and Stanford. Hmmmmmmm......that just doesn't sound like what ute fans seem to believe about
who is relevent and who is not.
"The future is Crimson - get Used to it!"That's the beauty
of independence, I can choose my color, my team and I choose BYU blue. Nothing
to get use to here.Go Cougars!
MichiganCoug: whatever helps you sleep at night. Between you and Blukitty, you
two sure spend a LOT of time on Utah stories. Not much going on on the whY
boards? Didn't think so. Hilarious!!Go Utes! Go Crimson!Talk about irrelevance - google WCC and see what comes up first: WCC (WESCO
INTL INC), Westchester Community College, Washtenaw Community College!
Awesome!Have fun with the Gaels and the Pilots!
Wow! So much bitterness!!!
Clearly the BYU Faithful aren't impressed with the job that Chris Hill has done
as Athletic Director at Utah. But an unbiased, knowledgeable group group, The
National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), certainly
is.Thank you, Dr. Hill, for your hard work!
