UA/Utah Game Important, but not THAT important

Wildcat fan here.

The game of the year in the Pac12 is less than 24 hours away, but I believe its not as important as we all thought it might be a month ago.

Utah actually has more riding on the game, lose and the Cats are outright Pac12 champs, win and the Utes are co-champs (assuming both teams sweep their remaining games which I believe they will). Beyond that, however, the game will not make much difference. The UA will likely wind up with the #1 seed in the Pac12 tournament regardless of the outcome. Win or lose the UA will probably wind up with a #2 seed (Please god don't let it be in ashley judds region). Win or lose the Utes probably won't make it up to the 2 seed line.

I think the outcome of tomorrows game will hinge not on shooting, but on rebounding. Utah actually outshot AZ (by a wide margin) from 3 pt land in the first game, but it was on the boards that Utah got destroyed. If the Utes manage to close the rebounding gap then I believe they have an excellent shot to win.

Win or lose I will cheer for the Utes in the Big Dance, as I will for all of the other Pac12 teams.

Good luck!

The UW is trying to drum up business for the Utah game.

They've turned into an awful team this year, especially after they dismissed their center for rules violations. So they're playing to empty stadiums lately and for the Ute game (also their Senior Day), trying to entice people to go with an offer you would normally see for a baseball game:

Did you know that Footloose was filmed in Utah County?

by DownhereUte

It's a movie about a wicked boy from the city, who moves to the perfect town in the country that has banned music and dancing. It ends horribly when the town redacts the ban, but we're proud of it. It stars Kevin Bacon.

Utah comes in at #24 in this list of most prestigious programs since 84 ...

not bad considering an entire decade of suck

24. UTAH UTES, Mountain West
Positives: 14 20-win seasons; 11 conference regular-season titles; 13 NCAA berths; 5 Sweet 16s; 1998 Final Four
Negatives: 4 losing seasons
Total points: 171
Did you know? The Utes have cleaned up in the regular season, winning 11 conference championships. They were one half away from beating ashley judd for the national title in 1998. They are also helped by having three first-team All-Americans and three top-10 picks in the NBA draft (Keith Van Horn, Andre Miller and Andrew Bogut).

Lana Del Ray

I really dig her dream/baroque rock music. Pretty easy on the eyes too...
