Nice pick up for the Utes!!!Question how many stars are before his name
and how many other "BCS" schools did he turn down to basically walk on
the Utes team since he was not offered a scholarship but has to earn it later?
Welcome aboard!Go Utes!
I'm not seeing any stars or any other offers, none. This isn't what
christina, howie, naval, etc. have been telling us is going to happen.
Duck, you're not seeing any offer from Utah, either. He's a walk on.
He's also a local. So it's news in Utah. Let me know if you need any
more help with comprehension.
I love what Coach K is doing with the Ute program...the future is indeed looking
Apparently not all DesNews readers know what a "walk-on" is. How
Walk on. No walk on. Ducky's point still applies, the guy is still on the
team. Apparently being in the PAC 12 doesn't mean as much as utes tell us,
if you are still scrapping together nobodies to fill a roster.
I pinched a utah "fan" nerve, love it.My point is solid,
getting no star on offer walkons is not what utah "fans" have been
telling us is going to be utah's future. They way utah "fans" talk
they should be getting 4 star walkons with offers from half the ACC. Looks like
that is not what utah is.
Once again DH, your point is undermined by the fact that the only
"nerve" that is pinched is your own constant obsession with everything
related to Utah. Expand your horizons a little.
I see that my favorite Deseret News poster has nothing better to do than read
articles about Utah walk ons. It is 105 degrees outside, so I guess there is
nothing better to do.

UTAH Basketball recruiting closely, IF at all, to erroneously conclude UTAH
hasn't generally already long ago concluded their class for this year!Van Brocklin is a win-win scenario for U Basketball and hurts absolutely
nothing, whatsoever, but rather has only the potential for benefit/upside!You people need to accept the FACT that U Basketball is headed in a
palpable upward-trajectory under Coach LK's stewardship, no matter the
amount of wishful thinking emanating from down there in utah county, home of
never done anything of note in The Tourney, excepting solely Fluke
'81/Ainge, and national leader in Tourney appearances without ever reaching
The Final Four, Ever--2-Star byu!
AZUTE1-I don't think you should be so confident in Krysko's
teams or Utah basketball until they can actually beat all the Big Sky teams they
have on their schedule.
007--"AZUTE1-I don't think you should be so confident

seriousness, I don't believe I've ever laughed so hard in my entire
lifetime, ever! Here I thought only somebody like Frank Caliendo moves me to
this extent! Hysterical! Stand-up comedian? Impressive routine!Losing focus/becoming lazy when having a double-digit lead deep into 2nd-half
in Game 1 of regular season with virtually brand-new roster in fluke-loss, is
something I chalk up as a learning experience/one of those oddities which bite
most teams across-the-nation at one point or another and is an extremely
rare-/freak-occurance, yet otherwise 100% unimportant/irrelevant/unremarkable,
particularly when we're in Year 1 of rebuilding without expectation of
making Tourney nor having need to protect our RPI, as a result. Again, Game 1
with a made-over roster with tons of inexperience. Yawn.On the
contrary, to get destroyed at home late in the season by USF/go winless in the
conference tourney [USD x 2], etc., blowing Tourney opportunity--Utterly
Will Utes feel like Krysto is on an upward trend after 2013/14? The Utes lost 4
of their best 6 players from last season. It's a 10 - 12 win season at
best. The only top notch player is Loveridge. Get 2 or 3 more like him and
I'll buy into the hype.
I'm sure he will do well and start for the U!

mixture of departures/arrivals, anybody who's actually studied it and is
unbiased, sees clearly how greatly we improved our roster, hands-down!I assure you, few outside our program expected the consistently competitive
product we had on the court during this last season, particularly against our
toughest competition, as we trended-upward all season long, culminating it all
by shocking most onlookers with our stellar performance in our conference
tourney, on top of beating OSU/UO in concluding our regular season, and winning
4 of 5 in total headed into our off-season! Especially remarkable, considering
we started the season, in Year 1 of rebuilding, with a virtually brand-new
roster from top-to-bottom, in addition to losing DF, during our offseason!KEY-Factor--Coach LK! See JW's 180, for instance!
Dear Duckhunter:Why do you constantly try to stir things up on the
Utah boards. I can't control Chris B and the like, but you should know
better as I assume you relationship to being a fan of BYU collaborates with your
faith? If not, then excuse my observation. This article is just apprising Utah
fans that there is a young man who has been given an opportunity to play for a
program that is getting better each year under Coach K2. Anyway, I
wish this young man success.Go UTES!!
DEFINITION: Walk-on: A player that cannot get a scholarship or offers from a
sports team.Sounds about right for the Utah program.
Dear wookie,You cannot control anyone but yourself, so let me ask
you this question. Why do you only call me out and not christina,
naval, azute, hedgehog, howie, etc.?Sice you have control of
yourself why is it that you don't call out those who are supposedly
"fans" of the same school you are for their embarrassing posts and
behaviors? It is because what they do and say does not bother you, it just
bothers you to hear less than effusive praise for the school you like so the
only cooments you want to see ended are the ones that are critical and/or
truthful about utah, you do not care about your associates comments.I find that to be incredibly hypocritical.
AZUTE,Rebuilding would be an understatement. Utah athletics are an
embarassment to the state and will continue to be for a few more seasons.
Please don;t cast stones at BYU when you know they will just be returned.Leave the BYU articles and I will leave the Utah articles.
AZUTE,You make a good point about Frank Caliendo. I don't think I
have laughed as hard at the dismal Utah season and the chest pounding from Utah
fans about how great it is to be in power conference. Believe me, the other
members of the conference hardly know Utah is there unless they need a
Dear Duckhunter. Re-read my post. I answered your question about
Chris B and the like. Now pay me the same respect and answer the question I ask
of you. As to your additional comments, I take no issue with factual truthful
comments, critical or not. I am not ashamed of the U's recent struggles.
I think that most Utah fans like myself were expecting our transition into the
PAC12 to be a challenge, which it has proven to be. Would I like to see them do
better? Of course, I'd be a fool to say otherwise. Are they getting
better? Depends on what area you focus on. No please Duckhunter, answer my
questions I send your way. Go UTES!!
But seriously folks!"AZUTE,Rebuilding would be an
understatement. Utah athletics are an embarassment to the state and will
continue to be for a few more seasons. Please don;t cast stones at BYU when you
know they will just be returned.Leave the BYU articles and I will leave
the Utah articles."Oh my, I'm totally intimidated!
Seriously! Please, please explain to me how/when I'll ever again be able
to sleep another wink?While you're at, please point-out to me
precisely where you, yourself, cast stones at me, I just simply don't see
any?Thanks in advance!
Frank Caliendo makes some of the best impressions around but the Utah basketball
team makes even a better impression; one on the rise and a power house in the
PAC 11+U. It's not real however.When you cannot even draw 5,000
people to a conference game you have a problem.
Dear wookie,You most certainly didn't answer my question about
chris b and the other utah "fans" I mentioned, all you said was that you
have no control over them, which I agreed with, you do not have control over
anyone but yourself. My question was why do you not call them out in the same
manner you call me out? You evaded it because the answer I made on your behalf
is true, what they post and do does not bother you, all that bothers you is what
I post about utah therefor you want it to stop.Once I see you
consistently calling them out in the manner you call me out then I will give
some credence to your desires, until that time I will simply point out your
hypocrisy and keep on doing my thing.And in answer to your orginal
question, I do what I do because I am the balance, plain and simple. You think
it is to make "contention" but all I am doing is continuing the
conversation in the manner your contemporaries converse on these boards.Remember you control yourself, you can choose not to engage in
What a cool name. Van Brocklin!Even our players' names are
better than BYU.
Gotta say that the video make him look pretty good. We will have to see how he
does against a real defense. Utah could use anything at this point, even a
AZUTE1- It's funny yet at the same time a little sad how seriously
you take this stuff. I was going to ask you to explain how the mighty utes
could lose to a team that couldn't even come close to beating USF but I
don't want you to lose any more sleep.
Great job Van Brocklin. This is a terrific young man and hard worker. And
I'm a Viewmont fan!
