I’ve said it before, and will probably do so again this basketball season, but...

That rumbling sound you heard from about 8:00 to 10:00 PM this evening, was the fat man rolling in his grave.

And Not just on the account of the way the Utes played, but the whole ugly event. It is getting really hard to watch college basketball, or really any basketball. It has become an ugly street ball activity, with one player dribbling, one player sort of gaurding him and 8 other players standing around watching. Eventually, the dribbler gets clear and attempts a dunk, or fails to get free and jacks up an NBA depth 3.

My 25 year old son, who has been going to games with me since 1996, was in town and came with me. He played every year growing up, until college, and has recently decided basketball is almost unwatchable, for the reasons I just outlined.

This may be my last year of season tickets

loyter icon NEW: I feel like the constant barrage of canned music and promotions is another factor leading to basketball being unwatchable.

HoopUte icon NEW: I took a nine year old grandson to a game in December and when we walked in the first thing he did was cover his ears. It’s really not helping the game experience. (nm)
