    Man it feels good watching Ute basketball in late March. It's been WAAYYYY too long since I last said that. Everything after this point is just frosting on the cake, but damn do I want to satisfy my inner 5 year old and LOAD up on that frosting!

    How on earth did USC jump us in the final AP poll? Seriously, makes absolutely zero sense.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-13 10:31:40

    One last thing to bitch about with college football this season, I can't figure this out in my head. We curb stomped our bowl opponent while USC eaked out a close win over theirs, neither opponent was that good, neither finished ranked. We actually beat USC head to head AND had the tougher schedule while finishing with the same record.

    It's one spot, in the end, but the AP rankings continue to defy logic. Next year should be interesting, it definitely doesn't get any easier.

    Coach K isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    by PDXUtefan
    2015-01-08 16:12:25

    Jesus, get a grip people, we're not losing this guy for a long time. MAYBE if a top NBA job came calling or one of a half dozen college jobs came calling. Literally there are probably 6 or so college jobs more attractive to a coach like Larry these days, Duke, NC, Kansas, Syracuse, Indiana, and maybe Louisville. He's not going to go to a run of the mill NBA team, he's already coached for 2 average NBA teams (Bucks and Nets) and didn't have a great deal of success doing so. He's not going to go coach for any other college team because they're lateral moves at best.

    Larry K can make money here now that the U is getting full shares of the Pac-12 revenue. If the U really wants to keep him they can pretty much offer any max contract value that Larry could get coaching in the NCAA.

    Finally, what Larry has done was take a program that was in the dumpster and turned them into a LEGIT top-10 team in 3 years. Out west there is exactly one team that is better than the Utes now (and that may be changed in a few weeks once we play them), Arizona. Why go to another P5 conference or higher tier school when you have a program that can now compete for Pac-12 championships, get NCAA bids, and hopefully go deep in the tourney on a regular basis? What am I missing? Unless he has personal reasons he's not going to find a more suitable college coaching position in terms of obtaining the highest goals of this sport. Winning conference championships (P5 conference no less, while not as important as football, is the top of mountain) and having great tournament success on a regular basis is now readily reasonable expectations and out west he is going to have a great chance to do so every year.

    Why leave this situation unless something horrible happens or he personally loses interest? If Larry really wants to he can make Utah into the premier college basketball school in the west. He's built a monster, now he needs to prove he can win in the tourney, then he needs to prove he can do it over several years. What will this team look like when our best players graduate or move on? Can he keep the high level of consistency? These are questions that can motivate Kodiak to stay at Utah and keep winning. We have the facilities, we have the conference affiliation, we have the money, we have the access, we have the history, what else is there?

    I might just turn off the football category until August, there is quite literally nothing positive to read about it right now. Besides, we have a GOLD MINE of Bill Walton quotes and Utah Basketball to talk about for the next several months.

    Why waste so much energy from our inner souls and heart of hearts, let's settle down with some sweet grass, remember the days of John Wesley Powell, take in our beautiful Basketball Program and Dinosaur National Park, and enjoy being alive. Tomorrow we can shampoo our brains, rinse and repeat. Forget all that BS swirling around in the media and our football program, it's out of our hands and out of our grasp, there isn't another snap of competitive Utah Football for 7+ months.

    Let it go, let it flow, let the good times (and roundball) roll.

    8 point win by #2 Duke over a mediocre Wake Forest team, 10 point win by #3 Virginia over a mediocre NC State team, 7 point win by #4 Wisconsin over a mediocre Purdue team, 6 point win by #5 Louisville over a mediocre Clemson team.....25, TWENTY-FIVE, point ASS KICKING by #9 Utah over a mediocre Colorad9 team.

    I was really really good at NCAA 2010, I averaged like 50+ points a game with the Utes team in that game. If KW is just hiring anyone to coach the offense these days....why not me?

    A-rod and Scalley? REALLY?! Put some fucking effort into it, jesus, you're a damn Pac-12 head coach with a top-20 team. Wonder if he just walked into the conference room with all the coaches and asked them "what number am I thinking? Closest two to the actual numbers get to be coaches of the offense and defense."

    More of the same, a dead last offense in the conference and a stout defense that probably gets a lot of input from the head coach.

    This feels like a Big Rick redux. #%!@ the local media.

    2014-12-29 10:07:48

    Good lord, anyone else get the same feeling they had with how local hacks more or less drove Rick out of town? It's the SAME DAMN THING. Local asshats get a whiff of something, start making shit up, and before we know it they've polluted the local waters with enough trash to make anyone and everyone want to leave.

    Regardless of what happens, the U needs to hire a PR manager of some kind to get out ahead of these shitstorms caused by dumbass media hacks trying to stir the pot. It sucks that all this happened over the holidays and it's a sure bet that most of the people who could have snuffed out the fires were away with family. Lord knows the media trolls have nothing better to do than write 120 letter tweets without any substance or backing what-so-ever. I'd hope as a minimum that press passes for all those punks are revoked by the U.

    Don't really know much about the Utes volleyball program, but it's cool to see them do well and the Pac-12 do well as well. 9 times in the final poll is amazing, and USC finished at #27.

    Heh, my how things have changed in the last 5 years. It's like some kind of bizarre college football universe testing us. I seriously let out a good laugh when I saw "Vegas Bowl: Utah vs CSU"

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-12-07 16:39:53

    How strange is that? We start the season hoping to just get bowl eligible with one of the toughest schedules in the country. We have a pretty good year, defense carries us to 8 wins, we knock off some good teams like USC, UCLA, Stanford (I refuse to list Michigan here, they were bad this year, even if it was in the Big House), finish #22 in the rankings....and all I can feel like is we just got kicked in the nuts. How hilarious, after all those years using things like the "BCS graveyard" as motivational things, talking about how pussy shit it was for BCS teams to say "oh we didn't want to be there", and how big it is for our programs history to be knocking off those guys in big bowls. Now we're on the other end.

    Time to pay the karma piper? I don't know. I just find it kind of funny. Vegas is a lousy bowl, it always has been, even when we were fighting for the top of the MWC. But it's relatively close, relatively cheap to get to, and it's a chance to see the Utes play another football game in 2014. I'm indifferent about CSU and quite honestly I have absolutely no idea what they'll bring to the game.

    When you have such a lousy, predictable offense and rely so heavily on your defense and special teams these things happen. Teams lose games when they can't score more than 16 points.

    by PDXUtefan
    2014-11-02 00:48:14

    Lots of bad coaching decisions tonight and lots of bad offense. Every team knows what is coming and without any aerial threat it is easy to defend against us. It's hard to blame Andy, you kick enough FG's you are eventually going to miss one or two, it's a big miss but he shouldn't been carrying this team on the scoreboard every single week.

    Whitt's conservative nature, by heart, will get him canned. Conservative does not work in this conference. When you're up by 21 you go out and score 21 more points. You go for it on 4th and inches. You counter punch for punch. That's how Pac-12 teams

    play. The scoreboard is always 0-0

    Having said that, the play last night was pretty pathetic outside the first quarter. I'm sorry, did any o-line players actually suit up? Tissue paper soft, they couldn't block a pop warner defense. And Wilson needs to settle the #%!@ down, happy feet and dancing don't help. Dres? When the ball hits you in the hands you have no excuse.

    There was just a total breakdown in all aspects of the game, from the coaching on down.

So many question marks still in my head, I just don't feel like any concerns I had going into the game were addressed. On one hand I saw so SO many bad things, but it's the first week. On the other hand we demolished Idaho St., but they're a horrible team.

    The thing that scares me the most is that nationwide there is no statistically book keeping on the number of officer related shootings.
    (28 days ago, 1 stars)

    Here's 36 minutes of cops shooting and killing people for no #%!@ing reason
    (28 days ago, 4 stars)

    Why is it that "problem" cops never seem to be corrected (at least publicly) in these videos. If the other cops are not "problem" cops then why do they idly (or in some cases even promote) stand by and watch the behavior?

    As a serious question to your last point, what percentage of cops are former military? I would venture a guess that it's a fairly decent percentage which makes me wonder a few things.

    Listen, I love both cities, I've lived more than a decade in each. There is almost nothing that is similar between Portland and SLC other than each has an NBA team and each has an MLS team with no other pro sports.

    I have absolutely NO CLUE how you could possibly defend anything the cops did in that video. All of that, every single thing they did, should be considered unlawful.

    I think you have it exactly the opposite, Republicans right now KNOW it's easy to win certain votes by moving certain ideologies toward the religious. They'll continue to harp on religious things so long as it wins them votes.

    The simple answer is no, SLC does not have anything near that kind of local wealth that almost every other Pac-12 city has. SLC has the church and Huntsman

    (31 days ago, 1 stars)

    And how do you know that? Dumping TDS opened up another weekend for us. Hill has long talked about scheduling a premier/P5 school, a middle non-P5 school, and a patsy as our OOC games.
    (31 days ago, 1 stars)

    Every team does? Really? Because I don't see Utes doing alligator rolls, going at knees or heads, and trying to horsecollar in every game (or even on a regular basis).
    (31 days ago, 3 stars)

    Why not keep them on schedule? Because it does nothing for us that scheduling another school can't do. We don't gain anything in recruiting. It's mostly a blip on the national radar. The Holy War has become absolutely toxic among players and fans.
    (31 days ago, 3 stars)

    Uhhhhh....University of Michigan. We don't schedule Fresno with the thought of "this will get us national respect!" We do it for recruiting in Cali and a respectable warmup game.
    (31 days ago, 5 stars)

    Which example for proof would you like, over the last 10+ years I've been on here there have been so many posts which contain clips/pics of TDS players doing dirty things it would take forever to list them all.
    (31 days ago, 4 stars)

    The really brutal thing is that if we had scored even just the average points per game for a Pac-12 team in 2014 we would have been 7-2 in conference and 10-2 overall, maybe going to the Pac-12 championship (tie with Zona on record).
    (31 days ago, 0 stars)

    Exactly the point. In this conference being elite in 3 out of 4 categories means you are a middle of the road team. You see, you have to score points in the Pac-12 to win, a lot of them.
    (31 days ago, 2 stars)

    Unfortunately the media is only fueling this fire, what you see on CNN/Fox News/MSNBC/etc is just a fraction of what's really going on.
    (32 days ago, 3 stars)

    God I hope so. If this statement turns out to be false it's going to be a long year on the offensive side of the ball.
    (33 days ago, 2 stars)

    A QB that looks good....besides his accuracy.....is no QB. I mean, if the whole point of your position is to throw the ball accurately to WR's then are you really a QB?
    (34 days ago, 2 stars)

    Yaaaaa, watching the QB of my favorite team have his heals touch the back side of his head is something fans shouldn't have to watch.
    (36 days ago, 2 stars)

    You're just a pessimist.
    (36 days ago, 3 stars)

    I'm content with what we've achieved so far, I think given the limitations of our Passing offense we have hit our ceiling as a program. Our defense and ST's are at or near the top of the conference. Our run game is at or near the top...
    (36 days ago, 1 stars)

    A game better based on what? Defense is mostly the same, maybe a little better, but they were already near the top of the conference last year. Run game is the same. ST's probably nearly the same.
    (36 days ago, 0 stars)

    You say that as if we have only ever run one style of offense. What is our style of offense? Over the last 5 years we've tried something different almost every single year.
    (36 days ago, 2 stars)

    And even more "others" look at the team and realize there were severe deficiencies in areas that would have resulted in an extraordinary season if they were even average at them.
    (36 days ago, 2 stars)

    Riiiggghhhhttt. Labeling someone who has a different perception of something, who isn't all sunshine and rainbows, than you do makes them a pessimist by default. Whatever helps you sleep at night.
    (36 days ago, 3 stars)

    And yet we say the SAME EXACT THING every year. It's a systemic problem, starting at the top. The revolving door or OC's, the absolute mediocrity of our QB's, and what appears to be complete reliance upon a strong running game.

    I have to say, that's the first Uf.n "mega-thread" which did not include at least one heavily blue starred post in it, that I've seen. Impressive given the wide range of views on the topic.

    Then I mistook what you meant and that's my fault. But I still argue that sexual orientation (as a result of genetics) IS 100% inheritable.
    (58 days ago, 1 stars)

    You act as if there are no sliding scales in biology and genetics. Genetic expression of many genes, in fact, is not as simple as "on" or "off" but actually encompasses everything from low to high (or even "overly" ) expression.

    Skin/eye color is not the only thing that determines race.
    (58 days ago, 0 stars)

    You're right, phenotype with regards to race is not volitional by the individual affected by it. It is the same exact way with sexual orientation (which appears to be a phenotype as resolved by genetics). As for the other area...
    (58 days ago, 0 stars)

    And you are wrong. Race CAN be changed, race is nothing but the result of evolution and the modification of genes influenced by nature. Sexual orientation is influenced by genes and nature in much the same way.

    Yup, and now people who do not believe in homosexuality for religious reasons need to make the same choice. You'd think that in the case of religious affiliation people would understand this.
