Five words; conference tournament and a prayer.
With basketball season so much of a snoozer, we only have 7 more months of
meaningless trash talk (back and forth) until football season hopefully
doesn't let us down.
Best win of anyone in the state1. Utah against 19 RPI ColoradoSecond best win of anyone in the state2. Utah against 51 RPI
Boise StateThird best win of anyone in the state3. Utah
against 71 RPI WashingtonYes, thats a fact.The 3 best
wins of anyone in the state are by the University of Utah!LOL. Utah
has a better shot at making the tournament than byu does. And we're
Losing is no fun and never a pleasant thing whether for the player or the fans.
I'm still reeling from my Cougars loss to San Diego last night. And
hearing that the Utes lost too just pours it on. Like gdog3finally said,
"Five words; conference tournament and a prayer." That seems to be the
only hope now for both the Utes and the Cougs.Good luck to both!
Top RPI by anyone in the state1. #55 BYU2nd best RPI by
anyone in the state2. #121 Utah State3rd best RPI by
anyone in the state3. #136 Weber State4th best RPI by
anyone in the state4. #170 UtahYes, that's a
fact.Of the "Big Four" teams in Utah, the Utes are a DISTANT
fourth.Good wins are completely offset by the ugliest losses
suffered by anyone in the state.Another train wreck of a season for
the kids on the hill will mercifully end immediately after the first game of the
PAC 10.2 tournament.
DirkThe Utes already have remarkable consistency; they're
averaging 65 ppg (235th in the country) and have scored 65 +/- 10 points in 18
of their 22 games this season.The only thing inconsistent about the
Utes, is the D-News continuing to refer to them as the "Runnin'"
Utes. They haven't been the "Runnin'" Utes in years.
I remember the trip to Eugene last year. I swear at one point in the game it
was 32-2. I mean they just beat us down like Ive never experienced. I am hoping the team can come out fired up and focused and compete on Saturday
night. Thatd be great to see. As far as the shifting starting
lineup, its been obvious for a while now that Brandon Taylor has been outplaying
Glen Dean by a large margin. Taylor is sooooo good at attacking defenses with
his quickness. Though its a very small sample size, I think he is pretty close
to 50 percent from downtown too. I also like his ability to set other guys up.
Finally, though he is 5'9 he is proving to be a solid defender. We really
got a nice player here. As a freshman, he has a ways to go in some areas, but I
think he can be a star for us.
runnin utes, really?
