    I wonder if the CNN website could start using larger fonts... j/k

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-03-28 21:51:27

    I didn't know 500 point fonts existed. I have a 27" computer monitor and when your main web page's headlines can only fit 4-5 words into that large of a monitor because of the GIGANTIC fonts you are using, maybe it's a little overkill.

    Well, I think the national champion is coming out of the teams playing in today's games

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-03-28 12:19:33

    I just don't see Michigan State, Duke, Gonzaga or Louisville getting past Arizona, Kentucky, Notre Dame or Wisconsin.

    Today's matchups will be the best basketball we'll see for the rest of the tournament IMNHO.

    I'm not going to cry too much over this...

    The team far exceeded start of season expectations.

    Coach K truly has something special going on here and with a solid returning team plus new recruits who will do it again next year.

    Yeah, they could have won. I think the gravity of being in the situation they were in - a Sweet 16 playoff game against one of the premier college programs in the nation - simply went to their heads. Too many turnovers, missed layups and second shots along with flat-out bad shooting that normally doesn't happen. That's nerves, plain and simple. I'm not going to blame the arena (although it sucks) because other teams made adjustments to handle it. Give this same team one or two years experience in this environment and they would have beat this Duke team by a good 15 or more and I think Duke is well aware of that.

    A heartfelt "well done" to this year's team and a "kill 'em all" wish for next year's team.

    GO UTES!!

    Starbucks coffee snobs crack me up

    Especially here in Seattle where ordering has become a new art form.

    This morning I swear the lady standing in front of me ordered something that went along the lines of, "I'll have a quad caramel frappel-lapple-grudgecino, extra goat, avacado twist, light non-ground sea salt, medium sprinkles, double cinnamon sloth syrup and stirred not shaken.....with room."

    Then came my turn:

    "A tall coffee, please."

    If the Utes beat Puke tonight, Coach K and his staff deserve a victory parade down State Street

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-03-27 10:30:09

    This is truly a David vs. Goliath story.

    With the exception of Delon, not one Utah player could even sniff at being a bench warmer for Duke. Along with Kentucky, that school doesn't even recruit. They simply go to the McDonald's All American's and drive them to their campus.

    Everyone in the world knows who Mike Krzyzewski is. Besides being with Duke since 1980 and winning a bazillion games and trips to the Final 4, he's also coached the U.S. Olympic and National team several times. But Coach Krystkowiak? Outside of the PAC-12, no one knows who that guy is.

    You can't even compare this to the Utah 1998 team. That team had years of NCAA playoff experience under their belts (led by seniors Doleac and Hansen and junior Miller) and the program had been playing Majerus' system for over 10 years.

    But being successful in the NCAA's has a lot to do with matchups and I think the current version of Utah has that good matchup against Duke, especially with our big guys.

    Plus every tournament has a Cinderella team. Why can't it be the Utes?

    So...GO UTES!! Beat the ever loving snot out of those Puke prima donnas!

    So I have a gut feeling that another #1 seed is going down tonight...

    by SeaTacUte

    Wisconsin seems to be living on borrowed time. Their last three games have been close including one with Coastal Carolina of all teams and an OT game with Michigan State.

    And Kentucky has been earning their wins in a very lackluster SEC. This West Virginia team will be the best they've seen all year. If they make it past West Virginia, they'll more than likely have to deal with Arizona and we all know how good those guys are.

    Gonna be interesting!

    I couldn't stand it. Wanted to stay home and watch the gymnastics and switch back and forth between basketball, but headed to a sports bar instead to watch the basketball game...

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-03-21 23:54:23

    Recorded the gymnastics meet, I'll be watching that shortly.

    That game damn nearly put me in my grave. In the first half if Reyes made one more errant turnover/pass I was going to run out into the freeway traffic and be done with it.

    But Coach K is the real deal. He kept the team in check, they overcame their turnovers, were steady-eddy in coming from behind in the first quarter of the game and prevailed. It was mind-blowing. Literally mind-blowing.

    The waitress couldn't bring me bear fast enough I was so nervous. Thank goodness I switched to water after a while.

    Nothing more to say. One of Utah's historic wins to put up there with the Sugar Bowl and beating Arizona in 1998 as far as I'm concerned. No one outside of Utah - I mean NO ONE - expected this. All the worthless ESPN talking heads had us losing to SF Austin. Fuck those dick heads.

    During the 2014 Super Bowl run for the Seahawks, Russell Wilson's mantra was "why not us?" And it worked - they all walked away with a ring.

    Thinking the same for the Utes this year. WHY NOT US??

    It's rough being a Ute fan in the Pacific NW...

    by SeaTacUte

    Went to my favorite sports bar wearing a pure red Utah sweatshirt with logo. Got a couple of "Go Utes" when I walked in which I attribute to PAC-12 recognition.

    Place was packed due to the NCAA basketball games going on so found a single seat at the bar. Unfortunately, there were two complete JACKASSES sitting next to me who wanted to bash anything Utah.

    I maintained my cool though and sat in silence for all of their ignorant "what's a Ute?" grief during the game. So when Utah won, I walked up, put my arms around them both and said, "HOW ABOUT THOSE UTAH UTES?? HELLA GAME, EH?" They left shortly afterward.

    At any rate, a great game and Poeltl was lights out. I DARE any team to try and deal with him when he's playing like that.

    Now, on to Georgetown! (Who looked less than impressive against a lowly E. Washington team.)

    GO UTES!!

    That was as good a half as I think we've seen all season...

    by SeaTacUte
    2015-03-13 01:37:57

    Yes, the team has won by 20+ points in the past, but they were leading by several points at half-time in those. In this case, they were down by 5 points at half-time.

    Loveridge was phenomenal but what was most impressive was Poeltl and Wright's play. Poeltl only had 19 minutes but finished with 16 points (including a couple of jumpers and several free throws!), 5 rebounds and 2 assists.

    Wright looked like every bit the NBA player he'll be soon. 20 points 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Plus he seemed to be in the right place at the right time - showing off his basketball IQ and following the ball.

    Was awesome to see, but they'll need to bring that for the whole game against Oregon. Those Ducks are on some sort of tear right now winning 12 out of their last 14 (including beating the Utes) and are playing with a ton of confidence.

    It's going to be a war, for sure. But....GO UTES!! Get your sweet revenge against the Ducks and then do it again to Arizona to get that #3 seed and ride sky high into the NCAA's.

    And it appears the reason is that with Cal playing just yesterday, they're still in a groove whereas AZ is trying to get settled.

    AZ will still win (99% sure), but makes me think of tonight's Utah game. If Stanford comes in feeling the flow from yesterday's game it might spell trouble for the Utes.

    Doing a little channel surfing and stopped in on ROOT TV's broadcast of the Mountain West Conference thriller between Boise State at San Jose State. Take away the cheerleaders, the bands, the coaching/support staff and I'll bet there aren't 30 people in that building. And those in attendance are probably the parents of the players.

    Complain all you want about PAC-12 recruiting, schedules, refereeing, whatever. We should thank our lucky stars EACH AND EVERY DAMN DAY that we're not in that pathetic conference any longer.

    Step 1 - get out of Utah. Step 2 - go to any Costco. ;)

    Is "hanging on the rim" even a foul anymore? I thought they got rid of that because players needed to do it to stabilize themselves before dropping to the ground. Before, it was causing injuries because they were releasing too soon to avoid the foul.

    I'll be happy to date myself on this one. Saw Led Zeppelin in the Salt Palace in 1972.

    ashley judd, Arizona, Gonzaga and Villanova is what I have in the Final 4 with ashley judd winning it all.

    Although I agree with most of what you said, I don't recall Utah playing a full press team this year.

    It kills me to say this, but I don't see anyone beating ashley judd. Someone give me some hope here. Who is most likely to knock these turkeys out?
    (17 days ago, 3 stars)

    That's true and I don't think anyone is saying that. But a number of talking heads are picking this as the sexy upset of the tournament. And stats generally don't lie, with the stats showing Utah being a better team in most measurables.
    (17 days ago, 1 stars)

    No kidding - this is a classic case of all those ESPN talking heads who live in the east, watch nothing but central & eastern teams and have already made their minds up not knowing a thing about what Utah brings to the table.

    You made plans during the NCAA's?? That's like the people who schedule weddings during football season. ;)
    (18 days ago, 7 stars)

    Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. Would LOVE to go, but not willing to pay through the nose for it.
    (18 days ago, 0 stars)

    Yeah, but other than that, defensively they're awful - 259th in rebounds and 128th in points allowed. This is a shooting team first, everything else is secondary.

    Off to Portland on Thursday!
    (18 days ago, 4 stars)

    Yup, have to go with a 6 seed too. They needed to beat Oregon to stay in the 5 seeding possibility, obviously that didn't happen.
    (18 days ago, 1 stars)

    Heh...Vitale will bitch about Duke not getting the overall #1 seed over ashley judd. That guy should be spray painted blue he's such a Duke homer.

    If Arizona doesn't get a #1 seed after totally crushing the Ducks, the fix is in.
    (19 days ago, 3 stars)

    If you press, you risk fouling. One foul shot would have won the game for them too. There wasn't anything wrong with what Utah did defensively, they were set up to defend against an easy shot. Not against a miracle shot.
    (19 days ago, 5 stars)

    Big Mac - the guy was only 10 feet beyond the half-court when he nailed that 3 pointer. There's no defense for that.

    Actually, going into last week's game, they had the #4 conference pass defense. Which allowed them to blitz even more than they normally do. We're going to see that for the rest of the season. (3658)

    When we play them, they're a rival. When they play someone else out of the conference, they're a conference-mate. Definitely GO DUCKS! (2282)
