Looks like my preseason prediction of 12 wins is going to be spot on. With a
regular non-conference schedule, the Utes wouldn't have reached double
digit wins. Next season is looking like the rebuilding year to me,
with 2014/2015 as the first year of real improvement. Next year is already
looking like another 12 win season, that will test the fans patience. But since
U a losing your leading scorer, shot blocker, assists; this cannot be considered
a rebuilding year. Good luck.
I expect this familiar scenario to continue for the foreseeable future. Too bad
that u will still be a one sport university and then not a very dominate one in
that either. I can't wait for the next few years to see the remarks about
how low the mighty have fallen. But then again, u really weren't that
mighty. No NC banners except that one sport. Too bad, so sad
"The Utes came out with a different gameplan Thursday night against Cal,
actually pushing the ball and taking shots early on the shot clock, rather than
passing the ball around for 30 seconds."Finally!!
"Looks like my preseason prediction of 12 wins is going to be spot
on."Congrats on your spot on prediction, CougFaninTX! I won't
embarrass you and ask what your preseason prediction was for that team down
south. Everybody over-estimated that one, even Ute fans.When Utah
almost beat BYU on their home floor, Ute fans walked away thinking "Wow.
We've really improved! The Cougars are supposed to be a tournament
contender and we almost won!" Unfortunately, that game was actually a dark
foreshadowing for how far the Cougars would fall.
SoonerUteLOL at the spin.A disappointing season for BYU
is 20-25 wins, a #62 RPI rating, and an NIT bid.A vastly improved
season for Utah is 12 wins, a #176 RPI rating, and no chance whatsoever for a
bid to any post-season tournament.The real kicker: - BYU
returns most of its top players, including the WCC scoring leader, and has great
recruiting classes waiting in the wings. - Utah loses most of its
top players, including its top two scorers, and doesn't have any top
recruits coming in.
Snack PAC, is the "wcc scoring leader" equivalent to the gold stars my
first grade teacher used to put on our art projects? Even with gonzaga you are
like the 11th best conference?Lol!
Chris BLaugh all you want christy, but BYU's JV team just won
the high school national championship. While Utah wallows in the PAC 10.2
basement with their perpetual "rebuilding" program, BYU is busy building
another NCAA-tournament caliber team that could be even better than the team
Jimmer lead to the Sweet Sixteen with BYU's best inside player. BYU's
2017 team could be scary good, and BYU's 2014 team won't be bad
either.149-145; 7 in a row; 11 of the last 12; including 3 straight
20-point blowouts in the HC.LOL!
Hey Chris B... What conference is Sacramento State and Cal Northridge in??? How
did y'all do against them this year??? LOL.How well have
y'all done against WCC teams? I think that you beat Portland this year
which is playing in the 8-9 eleimination game on Thursday, but you have lost 11
of the past 12 games against BYU... The one you did win was in OT on your home
floor... If the U were in the WCC I am thinking that you would be
facing Portland again on Thursday.
poyman, the win against Portland was last year with Utah's worst team in
history. I'm pretty confident Utah would not be in the bottom five of the
WCC this year.
"is the "wcc scoring leader" equivalent to..."The
WCC scoring leader is the equivalent to 11th best scorer in the entire country,
averaging almost as many points per game as Utah's two highest scorers
COMBINED.btw, before you start with your lame SOS whining,BYU SOS #97Utah SOS #54Not much difference!What's greatly different is RPI ranking.BYU RPI #62Utah
