    I have two extra tickets for the Utah sessions.

    by Ute Bear
    2016-03-15 13:47:05

    Will sell to a Ute fan at cost, plus one beer per game delivered to my seat.

    At present, don't know if I have been assigned seats in 100 lever ($100) or 300 level ($75). Saturday session only awarded if Utah plays.

    ASU guard quits the team

    by Ute Bear
    2016-02-24 08:07:57

    Arizona State -- already short-handed -- will be even more so the rest of the basketball season.

    Coach Bobby Hurley announced Tuesday that junior guard Andre Spight -- a key reserve -- has left the program and intends to transfer. Hurley did not go into detail, but said it was solely Spight's decision.
    http://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/nca ab/asu/2016/02/23/andre-spight-leaves-ari z ona-states-basketball-program/80825208/#& l t;/blockquote>

    Last time ASU visited, the Utes beat them by 42 points.
    They have only one true post player, Jacobsen at 6-10.
    They have lost all of their conference road games, except hapless WSU.

    Is this a trap?

    Cool stat: "Utah has now won 37 straight home games against unranked opposition. The five-point margin, however, is the closest any unranked team has come in the last 35 games at the Huntsman Center."

    From: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/ 2015/nov/16/sdsu-basketball-utah-espn2/

    Also from the article.

    The frown: This was an eminently winnable game.

    “I’m bitterly disappointed,” coach Steve Fisher said. “In my opinion, we could have won the game and we did too many things you can’t do if you want to win the game … We paid the piper.”

    Oregon State player, Victor Robbins arrested for DUI.

    by Ute Bear
    2015-02-10 08:44:41

    Our toughest remaining road game has become slightly less challenging.

    He was already serving a 10 day suspension for "violating team rules."

    From http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.s sf/2015/02/victor_robbins_suspended_orego. html

    "At the time of his suspension, he was third on the squad at 10.3 points per game and was averaging a team-high 12.7 points over the past seven contests. Robbins is slated to return from suspension for OSU's Feb. 19 game against No. 13 Utah."

    Strange year in the PAC 12, with Washington, Oregon and now Oregon State losing key players to off court incidents.

    It would set a bad precedent for a coach to grant a release to a player one month before camp opens just because he wants to play somewhere else.

    by Ute Bear
    2014-07-08 09:49:12

    At the end of the season, the release should be freely granted.

    At the end of spring camp, sure. Might be inconvenient, but still workable.

    But in the absence of exigent circumstances, ie death in the family, there should be no release granted to a scholarship player at that late date, simply because he changed his mind.

    Its not about return missionaries. Its not about Harvey Langi. Its not about BYU. It about the fact that the school has a limited amount of scholarships available and can't effectively plan for the year, with on open door policy.

    Chris Reyes

    by Ute Bear
    2014-03-27 15:17:49

    For those who would like to see Chris Reyes in action, here is a link to internet broadcast of a game his team played against Santa Monica College.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C7_w7nOo 6o

    Though it was broadcast by SMC, the commentators spoke effusively about Reyes. You can tell from the first 5 minutes of the game why Utah offered Reyes a scholarship.

    Reyes was Western State Conference POY, leading the conference in blocks (3.7 bpg), rebounds (12.0 rpg), and field goal percentage (59.7. He also finished third overall in scoring (18.7 ppg).

    He will be a sophomore.

    Some strange rules down at BYU...

    by Ute Bear
    2005-06-15 16:04:50

    From article in SL Magazine:

    As a practicing Muslim, Ibrahim wears a beard—a goatee, actually. He says his recruiter promised him a beard card—a token that lets the bearer check out books from the library or take exams at the testing center without shaving—but it never came through. “I had problems every single day about my beard,” Ibrahim says. He even had to wrap his own ankle before practice; the trainers couldn’t touch him without a
    beard card.

    ABQ Trib columnist dishes out some good BYU smack.

    by Ute Bear
    2005-02-21 10:18:28

    He chose to preview the Utah/NM game before the Lobos had even played BYU. From Friday:


    The impact, the emotion and the hype for the University of New Mexico's Monday night Pit battle against the No. 14 Utah Utes is so powerful that Saturday's game with Brigham Young is almost a second thought.

    As it should be.

    BYU is weak, down and vulnerable. The Cougars are the Mountain West Conference's 2005 replacement for the once-laughable Air Force Falcons.

    BYU should go down as a guarantee-win night; a chance to taunt the annoying Austin Ainge, son of the even more annoying ex-Cougar Danny Ainge. The Lobos should beat BYU by 20. After all, Granger is healthy now.

    Did Hair Thompson call Danny Granger best player in the conference?

    by Ute Bear
    2005-02-18 09:59:07

    From Abq. Tribune:

    For the Lobos to merit consideration for an at-large bid, they need to sweep their final three home games against Brigham Young, Utah and Colorado State, Thompson said. They need at least a split on the road trip at San Diego State and UNLV. And they need to win at least their first-round tournament game, but more likely advance to the title game with two wins.

    "Then you can make a statement that they would be sitting there in the 23- or 24-win category and you can make the argument that three of the six or seven losses were without (Danny Granger), the best player in the conference," Thompson said.

    I just spoke with a Crimson Club rep. Here is what I learned about the ticket situation.

    by Ute Bear
    2004-12-08 11:30:35

    I was told that an email will be sent out by the end of the week, regarding your order. If they are going to give you less tickets than you ordered, they will be calling you first. (I presume they need authorization to charge your card for an amount less than ordered.)

    I am a Crimson Club member, with tickets on the 45 yd line.
    I ordered 12 tickets. I asked for his best guess as to how many tickets I would be getting.
    He said it is possible that the ALL Crimson club will be given all tickets that they ordered. The maximum ticket order was set at 12. But, he thinks that if they have to limit the amount sold per order to crimson club members, it would be set at no less than 8 per order.

    I did not inquire about ticket allotments to either season ticket holders, that are not members of the crimson club, or to the general public.

    Could be an important game tonight in the Pit.

    2003-01-27 18:04:30

    I fear that if UNLV loses to UNM tonight, putting them at 0-4, we are going to see a complete team meltdown, much like New Mexico after they kicked that player off the team.



    The last thing Utah needs if for UNLV to roll over and play dead when Wyo and BYU play at the T&M. As much as I hate UNLV, which is considerably less than BYU, I will be pulling for them tonight.

    Question for BYU fans..

    by Ute Bear
    2003-01-26 12:30:14

    It seems that there are some 15 players on the rooster.
    Who are your scholarhip players, and who are walking on?

    I have been impressed with Cleveland's ability to bring in players as walk ons, who seem quite capable of earning a D-1 scholarship somewhere else. Carlile as well as that Canadian sharpshooter from last year comes to mind.

    During the game the commentator said that Nashif came in as a walkon. Did he get Opponui's scholarship? I would think that it would be hard to keep him happy, while at the same giving out scholarhship to Lemes and Woodberry.

    Also, how excited can you be about Ainge comming in, when he choose to redshirt rather than compete with Woodberry, Lemes and Nashif for playing time?

    Interesting observation by Shoeless on page 2 regarding playing time for C Jackson

    http://www.utefans.net/webboard/ftboard/message.php?id=31882

    I have always thought that if C. Jackson is a defensive liablity when manned up agaisnt the smaller players, then maybe Majerus should just plant him in the paint, and play a zone. Then let the other team take thier lumps on the other end.

    Who selects Conference player of the week?

    by Ute Bear
    2003-01-06 12:58:03

    I would have thought that with Britton comming back early, inspiring the Utes to victory over no. 1 ranked Alabama, he would have earned POW honor. But, instead the award goes to Uche, who led the Cowpokes to wins over Indiana State and Montana State.

    With CSU players earning the award twice, despite the softest schedule in the conference, whoever picks the awards, doesn seem to put much thought about the importance of the underlying games.

    The only thing better than watching the game live...

    by Ute Bear
    2003-01-04 10:52:18

    Is comming home and watching the game recorded on Tivo.
    I pity those ute fans who have never watched a Ute game on a Tivo. With a instant replay and slow motion on demand, and no commerial interruptions, its basketball heaven.

    Watching last nights game again on Tivo, I was able to appreciate that the two times that Cheney drove the lane, he lost his defender off the dribble when he was freed up by screens from Koford/Britton. On each occassion, Weber's big men played it perfectly by rotating to cover Cheney, but he simply took to defender to the low block, and elevated to score over the defender.

    Trace Caton, bless his heart, is not capable of finishing that play.

    Markson used the same quasi crossover dribble move on three occassions. Fake a dribble to the right, cross the ball over to left, one drible, two steps, and he is at the rim. Of course the third time he tried it, he turned it over before his first step. Dare I say it, but I think that Markson can get from the three point line to the rim faster than Kieth Van Horn.

    The year of the Freshmen

    by Ute Bear
    2003-01-04 10:08:12

    In what has been dubbed the year of the freshman, its nice that Utah has three quality freshmen playing under the national radar.

    By quality freshmen, I mean prospective all conference players, not merely prospective 4 year role players. At least in my mind, Drisdom, Cheney and Markson have emerged as prospective future all confernce players. While I think Chris Jackson has shown greater potential than either Altoff or Allred showed in their freshman years, he has yet to show the quality play we saw in Doleac as a Freshman.

    When was the last time Utah had three quality freshmen in the same year. That would have been Van Horn's senior year, with Jackson, Hanno and Jeff. While Jackson left, Jeff went on a mission, and never rose to the level of all conference, I don't think Utah lost a home conference game while Hanno was a Ute.

    Since that year, until now only two recruits have shown this kind of promise their freshman year, Britton and Nick. (though in fairness, Trace had a solid, but not spectacular freshman year, and Nick was not a true freshman.)

    Whithout quality freshmen comming into the program, Majerus had to look to JC/transfers to sustain the program, if not nationally, at least at a top confernece program.

    Well with three future impact players, I won't make any predictions of a final four run, but I fully expect that the Utes will return as perenial top 25 team. Once again, we will begin the year not wondering if the Utes will make it to tournement, but how deep will they go. We are not going to wonder if the Utes will break into the top 25, but how high they will climb.

    Interesting offensive stats through 6 games...

    by Ute Bear
    2002-12-09 10:55:03

    The new players, Frost and the four freshman combine to shoot 55.7% from the field, or 78/140. All five are shooting above 50% from the field.

    By contrast the five players having experience with the "system" have taken more shots but made fewer baskets, 73 of 173, or 42.2%.

    Britton is dominate below the arc (33/55), but is struggling to prove he has 3 pnt range (2/18). Conversly, Nick doing well beyond the arc(16/39), but is strugling to prove he has a mid range game, only 6 of 20 below the arc. Caton is just plain firing blanks at 5/23 or 21.7%.

    The new players are not only taking good shots within the context of the offense, but are shooting with a level of confidence you would not expect to see at this stage.

    Lets hope that by league play Britton can find (or even abandon)his three point shot, Nick can fine tune his midrange game.

    As for Caton, he certainly can't continue to shoot 21% from the field, and expect to play.

    Bogut attracting NBA scouts...

    by Ute Bear
    2002-11-16 08:45:42

    While we are waiting for Crimson's scouting report, here is an except from yesterday's Spokesman-Review:

    The Australian Institute of Sport comes in having played four games in as many nights. And while fatigue may be a factor, Few is hoping for a better challenge than the Northwest All-Star provided.

    "They should be better organized," Few said of the Aussies, who feature a tall front line anchored by 6-foot-9 forward Andrew Bogut. "They'll run some plays and have a plan defensively."

    Bogut, who will enroll at the University of Utah next semester, is a big-time player who has generated some interest among NBA teams. As a result, scouts from the Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers have requested credentials to tonight's exhibition.

    If I recall, I didn't summarily dismiss it, I asked you to summarize the three claims you found to be the most compelling. For reasons I can't fathom, you refused to do so.

    Not so fast. Brigham also defunded the University, leading it to closure in 1853.

    Actually, yes. BYU and humility are indeed mutually exclusive things.

    What you see as humilty, I see as pragmatism. To each their own.
    (256 days ago, 0 stars)

    No. Its name calling. You either need to own it, or tone it down.
    (256 days ago, 7 stars)

    BTW, you are both correct. The honor code is not doctrine, it was a policy that was put in place in the 60s. That said, the consensus of the BYU apologists presently is that it would take a revelation to change the honor code to accomodate gays.
    (256 days ago, 1 stars)

    Its not about the pocketbook, its about reputation. Losing accreditation would be embarrassing to the law school, and its graduates.
    (256 days ago, 0 stars)

    Dude, no need to lie. We are all friends here. BYU didn't change the policy because "they realized that it was too harsh." They changed it so as to not risk losing ABA accreditation for its law school.

    While I agree that its crass, I don't understand the "at her expense" reference. She was a model who parleyed her body and looks into a marriage with an American billionaire.

    You missed the point. I didn't "cherry pick" stats to prove that Bush was worse, but that scrutiny and subsequent criticism is politically motivated.

    Its not the religous beliefs that an issue, its the discriminatory practices. From the Notre Dame website:

    So in your analogy, I budget 100K over four years, end up paying $125, because I failed to take into acount rising tuition costs, but thankfully it could have been worse, because Uncle Barak came through with $25K.
    (313 days ago, 1 stars)

    Here is what happened in my world.
    (313 days ago, 5 stars)

    Semantics. If I am planning on spending 100K sending a child to college, and, out of the blue, my uncle Barak agrees to pay $25K, he just "saved" me $25K.
