What kind of noise, really, could the Utes possibly make in the 2nd half of PAC
12 play? MAYBE pick up their 1st road win of the season, and 2nd
road win EVER, in the conference?Like that's going to impress
anybody outside of the crimson bubble.Unfortunately, playing the
350th worst non-conference schedule to start the season killed any chances the
Utes might have had at getting an at-large NCAA tourney berth.The
only chance the Utes have to make the Big Dance now is to win the PAC 12
tourney, which is to say, NO CHANCE.
@ FACTchequerThis team could make noise by stringing some wins
together and setting itself with a decent seed in the NIT. Nobody was planning
on Utah getting an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament this season.
Fact,I see that BYU's worst loss of the season at the hands of
the Utes still has you smarting. The sun will come out... tomorrow,
bet your bottom dollar.
U90, I see that Utah's best win of the season (and their only remotely
'decent' win amongst the 350th best prep school pre-season schedule)
against BYU still has you thinking Ute basketball is good. I wouldn't brag
too much about beating BYU. The Cougs aren't that good either, although
they can win a game away from home.The sun will come out...
tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar.
HedgfogI'd put Utah's win over UCLA as a better win than
2fer"Nobody was planning on Utah getting an at-large bid to the
NCAA tournament this season."That was a given as soon as Hill
and coach k scheduled the 350th WORST non-conference schedule in the country.---------U90bottom dollar#41
BYU(15-9) #12 SOS is BETTER THAN #110 Utah(14-7) #171 SOSBYU is 5-5
(50%) versus RPI Top 100 teams; Utah is 3-6 (33%)BYU is 1-3 versus
AP/Coaches Top 25 teams with a win over #15/#18 Texas; Utah is 0-1BYU has a PAC 12 road win over Stanford; Utah is winless on the road this
seasonIt's blatantly obvious which team is a contender, and
which team is only a pretender
"BYU is 5-5 (50%) versus RPI Top 100 teams; Utah is 3-6 (33%)"Better cheque[actual]FACTS from Sagarin, so well-loved in Provo. Utah is 1-2 against Top 25 and 2-4 against Top 50. On the other hand . . .BYU is 0-3 against Top 25 and 2-5 against Top 50.So you were right
about one thing, but not as you intended:"It's blatantly obvious
which team is a contender . . ."
