Utah Utes win their Third Game - Blackout Night

Jan 06, 2012

I went to my first basketball game this week with my son, my good friend and his boy. The joke on the way there was that it would be fun to hang out, not to expect too much and that we would probably see Utah lose. Utah won! To be honest, I was not 100% impressed with the talent we have a s a team...

Rumor Central - Dave Rose to the Utah Utes as Basketball Coach

Mar 05, 2011

Dave Rose to go to the Utah Utes in 2012. As always it is interesting when you hear a bit of news that has not been confirmed. It has been something that has been passed around the media a bit, but no real truth to it. I thought it would be interesting to hear anyone's take on this. In my mind, BY...

Boise State to the MWC

Jun 12, 2010

So it happened, even after all of the hoopla telling Boise they were not wanted, they really were. Why? I guess to let everyone have a positioning chip just in case. Either way, they are here and the MWC is stronger and should have an opportunity for a BCS auto bid very soon. Boise and TCU will ...

Jun 02, 2010

Anyone else getting tired of all the hype of the unkown? Rumors are surfacing all over the place and yet it is nearly impossible to find a credible source. I heard from a friend of a cousin's ex fiance's sister that the Utes will be in the Pac-10 (No, that is not true). So without wasting more o...

Again the rumors have resurfaced! With the big conspiracy with the Big Ten trying to expand to a 14 16 team conference (all being denied right now) it begs the question...What about the Pac-10.

Michael Loyd, Jr leaving the "Y"

May 06, 2010

When I first heard about this "change" in the program, it was from KFNN Radio on the DJ & PK show. PK, who is not my favorite, but has some good points from time to time, if you can ignore his whining. He stated that it was a black thing, and it was tough to be a black player at a white schoo...

Utah Basketball is officially a joke!

May 04, 2010

Listening to the news, sports radio, watching TV and listening to everyone who is even a little bit interested, I have decided that the Utah basketball team has officially hit a dead end. When your team plays bad, and then four key players, including the two highest scores leave the team, something...

BYU and the Flop

Jan 31, 2010

So take a great game and ruin it. Yes, referee, ruin it. Thank you BYU for the FLOP. You officially have stepped to a new low. Bad enough that Mr. "Max Hates Me To" Hall had to spoil your big football win with the reminder that he cannot turn the other cheek. Yesterday was plain sad for BYU as ...

Utah is Playing High School Ball

Jan 28, 2010

After the loss last night to Wyoming, I now believe that the Utes are playing down, playing high school basketball, they are not good. 10-10 on the season is embarrassing, and for a school that has had such great success in the past, this is a failure. The Utes are able to recruit a lot better tha...

Poor Shooting Gives Utah a Loss Against San Diego

Jan 20, 2010

It is amazing to think that Utah had a chance to win this game. As close as the final score seems, it is extremely hard to win games when you shoot around 30%. With a minute left in the game the Utes trailed by nine points. Most of the fans in the stadium had lost hope and started heading for the...

Utah Utes Basketball

Jan 14, 2010

Well, coming off a decent football year for the Utes, more of a rebuilding year for the football team, it is hard to watch our basketball club these days.  I have been debating going to a game and taking the kids, but feels like they may learn bad habits.  As I watch the Utes play hoops, I only se...
