If you had told me before the season we'd beat our rival Colorado, UCLA,
ASU, several others in the Pac 12 and finish the season 9-9 in the Pac 12 and
21-11 overall, and be one of the best teams going into the NIT I think we'd
all have taken that. Mostly insignificant, but a nice addition was embarrassing
our former rival.We have NBA talent in Wright and a talented group
including Loveridge, Taylor, Brekkot Chapman, and Van Dyke that is better than
we've had in 15 years probably. The future of Pac 12 Ute
basketball is bright.My guess is the next team to win a sweet 16
game from the state of Utah will be the same as the last team to win a sweet 16
game from the state of Utah - and that would be the Univeristy of Utah pac 12
utes.Proud of you guys!Coach K for president!
All of a sudden the NIT looks good!
The Utes are lucky the Pac12 was extremely mediocre this year. 9-9 in league
might get them into the NIT with all those preseason wins at home against the Jr
Colleges. Colorado is no more the Utes rival than any other team in the
conference. Maybe you could refer to Colorado as the "by default" rival
at best since all the other teams actually have a real rival. If having a rival
is a requirement then I guess Colorado is the only team that fits.
jmn2db14,the pac 12 is going to get at least 6 teams in the
tournament, trailing possibly on the Big 12(with only 10 teams because there
aren't any worthy teams available to be added to make 12)the
wcc will likely get 1 teamPac 12: 6 teamsWCC: 1 teamThe Pac 12 was 7-2 against the lowly wcc this year.Show some
respect to those better than you.
Since all you Utes fans have so much PAC 12 pride, what good would the NIT do?
You already got to play in what's obviously the best tournament of them
all. The PAC 12 tourney!!!
Do I see a USF vs Utah game in the near future? Utah better hope it is a home
game. Because if they play and Utha loses these comment boards will become an
I remember last year that the ute fans were bagging on the Cougars for ONLY
making it to the NIT. It seems like they are now saying that the
NIT for the utes would be a good thing. Please tell me the difference ute fans.
I am guessing that the difference is that BYU is used to going to the NCAA and
the utes are used to sitting at home in March. Can anyone see the difference in
the two programs?Onward and upward to where?
NIT hype now?? lol thought they were a lock to win the Pac and get a tourney bid
this year? hmmm must not have marked that one down
5 points and 1-8 shooting is not the makings of an NBA prospect, not by a long
How would these two stat lines strike you? Player A: 3-13 FG, 6 PT, 2 TO. Player
B: 1-3 FG, 3 PT, 5 TO, 5 F. Player A: Selected 14th overall in 2013 NBA draft.
Player B: Projected top 10 pick in 2014 NBA draft. Players have bad games.
Harping on someone's worst performance and disrespecting them is pretty
telling of one's character.
StGtoSLC must still be reeling from yesterday's beatdown to come up withg a
good comment like that.
All the BYU fans are really showing their true colors. Let me see, what
tournament were the Cougars in last year?
"Reeling." So much so that I was able to wake up early this morning, go
to work, and continue to live a good, happy life, just the same as if the Utes
had won. That's kind of what having a life is all about, but I don't
wanna spoil the surprise for you.
