    Real question: Is there a policy in U.S. law enforcement that requires every cop on scene to fire all the available bullets once the first shot has been fired?

    That thing yesterday seemed pretty reckless on the part of the police. I get that the guy had fired upon them, but were that many rounds needed? Also, they were basically firing into a store with an unknown number of people in it.

    I want to talk about that double technical in the Oregon game last night.

    by loyter
    2019-03-29 09:03:49

    Maybe I was watching through my PAC 12 colored glasses, but that call seemed like a chicken shit call to me.

    There was a fight for the ball in a held ball situation and a jump ball was called. No big deal. Then the Virginia guy got mad and instigated contact with his head.

    How was that assessed as a technical foul to the Oregon player? He just stood there, and made no motion toward the Virginia guy. Was the Technical because he flopped?

    I get that Zion Whatever for Duke is good, but I wish the announcers would make it about the game. The big story is that UND is within 4 points after a half, not that Zion is on the floor.

    Also, Duke went 15 minutes into that half and got called for 0 fouls.

    A few quick thoughts. It was fun to see the Utes really committed to a man-to-man defense. Additionally, the absolute smothering of Boatwright was great. He still scored 17, but he was pretty much a non-factor - especially in the second half.

    Parker is a great "Local Kid Makes Good" story. Also, Parker is 10x better in a post-game interview than Larry. Funny, engaging, conveys his knowledge of the game...

    Timmy freaking Allen. I have to remind myself he's a freshman. His defense, his rebounding... He's great. He's charismatic, and the best part is that he has fun out there.

    This isn't the best Ute team ever, but they are very fun to watch. I hope they can seal up third place and get that bye and avoid Washington.

    Beat UCLA!

    A few quick thoughts about last night.

    by loyter
    2019-02-21 09:01:07

    Barefield made his first 4 threes, then missed the rest of his shots (9).

    The Utes out rebounded UW 18-9 in the first half, then got out rebounded 30-17 in the second half.

    The Utes were up 17-7, then got outscored 55-28 over the last 27 minutes of the game.

    The Ry-dosh kid scored 5 points and actually looked quite good on defense. I'm still trying to work out why he was in the game. Just to spell a tired Tillman? Because Tillman's effort sucked? Tillman only played 23 minutes and wasn't in foul trouble.

    There was some concern that Tillman would be this year's notable transfer among a game thread I was following. If he's going to put in efforts like last night, I'd say it's a minor concern.

    Washington's defense is ridiculously good. There's good reason they are undefeated at home this year. I'm not sure they are as good as Jacobsen thinks they are, but they are really good. Too bad they aren't very good offensively. They'll make some noise in the tourney - sweet 16, I'd say.

    Hopefully, the Utes can find a way to win against WSU and stay in the hunt for the top 4. If not, it'll be a short March and a long offseason.

    I don't like Boise State, but I feel bad for the players and fans. Such a disappointment. Well, at least they didn't lose.

    (Don't whine about the Fox news article, it's the first one I clicked on.)

    The best part of this?

    Larry's sinking ship

    by loyter
    2018-12-10 09:33:04

    The worst part about the current state of the basketball program, for me, is that I don't care. I didn't even make an effort to tune in to Saturday's game. I just looked up the score later in the evening.

    Those who know me know I've been a basketball junkie forever. Through the lean years, through the great ones. But now, I've lost interest.

    How did it come to this?

    1. The product on the floor is mediocre (generously). Larry's teams just don't play good basketball. They don't play great defense, they don't rebound, they don't get punished for doing stupid things...

    2. Larry never seems to be upset that the team lost. This has been an irritant from day 1. I know he wants to win, but in the post-game, he never seems to care. Show some fire, coach.

    3. Players don't thrive at Utah. Kuzma, for example. Barefield for another - he scored 36 in his FIRST game as a Ute. Since, he's been a roller coaster ride. Larry seems to handcuff the kids to a system and if they don't fit into it, they have to leave or not play. I feel like he kills some kids' confidence. Kids come here, then transfer away and find success. Chapman, Mawien, Zamora, Wright, etc...

    4. So many transfers.

    5. Losses in big games, losses in close games. Larry's teams don't upset better teams. They go to form. Also, when a game comes down to the last few minutes, they come up short. I can't remember who did it, but someone around here looked at all the games decided by 5 points or fewer and found that, statistically, the Utes usually lose those games.

    6. I watch other teams in the early season, and they seem to play well together, despite having newcomers. Larry's system seems to take a really long time to implement, with his team rounding into form after the PAC season has begun.

    7. Afternoon games! Fucking stupid afternoon games.

    Add it all up and it equals losing fans, myself included. I'll be back when it's worth watching.

    Tuesday's complaint: Basketball scheduling

    by loyter
    2018-12-04 10:05:47

    There are way too many weekend games the Utes play from here to the end of the season in the afternoon. Afternoon CBB is stupid. People have things to do. Skiing, kid's sports leagues, hell, even just a project around the house. Afternoon games are day killers. Basketball is entertainment that should happen in the evening. 6:30 at the earliest.

    Let's look at the upcoming weekend games:

    Saturday, December 8 - BYU (neutral) - Noon
    Saturday, December 15 - @Kentucky - 3:00 PM
    Saturday, December 29 - Nevada - Noon
    Saturday, January 5 - @Arizona - Noon
    Saturday, January 12 - WSU - 6:00 PM
    Sunday, January 20 - Colorad9 - 4:00 PM
    Saturday, January 26 - @Cal - 8:00 PM
    Saturday, February 2 - OSU - 3:00 PM
    Saturday, February 9 - @UCLA - 3:00 PM
    Saturday, February 16 - ASU - 8:00 PM (Hallelujah!)
    Saturday, February 23 - @WSU - 6:00 PM
    Saturday, March 2 - @Colorado - 4:00 PM
    Saturday, March 9 - UCLA - 5:00 PM

    What ever happened to 7:35 PM tipoffs? Frankly, if this team doesn't show some incredible improvement in December, I doubt I'll attend the stupid early games, and I'll probably not tune in to watch the away games. I can understand one or two early games per year, but this is ridiculous.

    Why is this happening? PAC 12 network wants every game on their network, so they have a Saturday quadruple-header, to the detriment of the fans. Another reason to want Larry Scott fired.

    Larry K has said that he likes afternoon games. Maybe it's so nobody will be watching as he fails once again to live up to his fat paycheck.

    The drive to Santa Clara through Las Vegas is about 2.5 hours longer, but likely safer. If it's snowing on the pass, you'll spend those two hours in the car anyway. And it's not unusual for them to just close I-80 if it's severe.

    Utah's opponents

    by loyter
    2018-11-25 11:04:57

    WIN Weber State 9-2 #2 seed in FCS playoffs
    WIN NIU 7-5, headed to the MAC championship game and a bowl

    LOSS #16 Washington - PAC 12 North champs
    LOSS #8 Washington State - 10-2 bowl bound (perhaps NY6)

    WIN Stanford - 7-4 bowl bound
    WIN Arizona - 5-7
    WIN USC - 5-7
    WIN UCLA - 3-9

    LOSS ASU - 7-5 bowl bound

    WIN Oregon - 8-4 Bowl bound
    WIN Colorado - 5-7
    WIN BYU - 6-6 Maybe a bowl team (no tie-in)

    So, the schedule had 7 bowl eligible teams (we'll leave Weber out of this conversation)
    They went 4-3 against bowl eligible teams. Two of the losses were on the road, one at home. In the two Washington losses, the Utes were competitive, but made errors. In the ASU game, they just got blown out.

    I don't have a point here...just looking at numbers.

    I'm sure they didn't mean it.

    This time will be different.

    We've really grown together.

    I'm certain they won't hurt me again.

    The past is in the past.

    The best predictor of future performance is past performance, and that certainly held true today. On the bright side, we could still get there. At Oregon is probably ASU's best chance to lose.

    The other bright side is, we are all set up for yet another South division co-championship.

    Basketball team thoughts

    by loyter
    2018-11-02 15:23:17

    Timmy Allen. We are going to like him. Like, a lot. He's listed as a forward, but I think he could play any position from 1 to 3. probably even 4 in a pinch.

    Gach seems like a poor man's Bryant Markson. Doesn't look particularly smooth, but handles the ball, made a few nice passes, and can jump really high.

    Topolovich looks servicable, but not good. Brandon Morley (who's name I don't remember hearing before last night) is a kid from SLCC who's 7 feet tall. He is more not good than Topolovich. Both can fill space and run the floor. The plus side is that this team seems to have scorers and hopefully we won't need many points from the 5 position.

    Battin played not much, but looks like a decent backup 4 behind Tillman.

    Chuck (apparently it's Chuck now) Jones Jr. looks the part, has a really nice stroke from outside, and seems like he'll be good. But he's behind Barefield, Van Dyke, and Hendrix at the guard position. He'll have to really battle for minutes. Allen may also take some guard minutes.

    Gaskin looks slight and didn't play until garbage time. Red shirt, I'll bet.

    I was really excited to see Vante Hnedrix, but he didn't have a great night. Looked like he was trying to force things, was out of rhythm... I think there are good things to come from Hendrix, but it was hard to get a read from last night's game.

    Larry has said that he thinks he has the depth to run a lot and press a lot this year. I'll be interested to see if he sticks to that plan. I see the rotation tightening up to 8 guys or so and the team playing a lot like it has in the past.

    Part of me thinks that this season may ebb and flow with the play of Jayce and Thioune.

    I want to think the Utes will finish in the middle third and exceed expectations, but 8th place might be accurate. It'll depend on health and whether these new players can gel.

    Classic Whittingham

    by loyter
    2018-09-29 20:45:34

    Get a three point lead and try to milk it for 26 minutes. The only Whittingham-er game that this was the Vegas bowl where the offense refused to try anything after the early 35 point lead, which proved to barely be enough.

    The whole team, coaching staff included, lacks any sense of discipline.

    Early second half, run a play, fail to get a play call in on time, waste a time-out, then come out of the time-out and commit a false start.

    Waste another time-out early in the second half for the same reason.

    3:30 to play, down 4, 65 yards to the end zone, run up the middle. I don't even mind that play call, maybe you catch WSU looking for the pass and get some yards. What bugs me is the fact the it took 35 seconds to get the next play off, all while the clock runs.

    4 and 5, false start.

    4th and 10, holding (you can complain about the call all you want, but it was technically holding)

    Blocks in the back on the punt return.

    Zero downfield blocking when a play finally does get into the secondary.

    Huntley can't hit a receiver.

    Kickoff returner is not Covey. Puts his knee down on the catch.

    So many little mistakes. It all goes unpunished, and it just keeps resulting in losses. This team is exactly what it will be until Whittingham moves on. Summer hype, good D, competitiveness, and losses.

    Minshew wasn't a great QB last year. 10 games, 2150 yards, 129 QB rating. He's nearly equaled that already at WSU, and his QB rating is 144. Why? Partly the system, and partly because Leach is a good coach. He makes players better. Whitt takes QBs and makes them worse.

    Huntley isn't leading this team anywhere.

    I'm not saying fire Whitt, but I am saying that if he stays, this will forever be the result. If the school and the fanbase are ok with 6-6 or 7-5 and the Billy's Pork Rind Bowl, then I guess we should keep him on the payroll.

    by loyter
    2018-09-08 23:18:11

    Yeah, yeah, the offensive line gave up 6 sacks...or did they? Perhaps half or more of those sacks were because Huntley got happy feet or decided not to make a decision. He's just not good enough.

    Alas, this is a Kyle Whittingham team, so we'll stay the course with Huntley and wait it out until we're 3-4 or 3-5, then maybe, just maybe, we'll mix it up with either Tuttle or Shelley.

    It's easy to be down on this team right now. it looks like the hype was just that.

    Hopefully Both Huntley and the team can prove me wrong next week.

    RPI comparison

    by loyter
    2018-03-28 17:07:38

    Penn State's big win last night made me a little nervous. Here are some RPI numbers to sooth your fears. (I'm not a big believer in the RPI)

    Utah
    RPI 59
    W-L 23-11
    SOS RANK 62
    Conf W-L 11-8 (11-7 regular season)

    Penn State
    RPI 77
    W-L 25-13
    SOS RANK 74
    Conf W-L 11-10 (9-9 regular season)

    Penn State has played 38 games! This will be 39. That's a ton of games for a college basketball team. The 1998 Final Four Utes only played 34. Penn State did play three in their conference tournament, and if the Utes had done that, they would have played 37 by now. ...anyway, lots of games.

    Penn State is good and they have a NBA point guard who can shoot the three, has a good mid-range jumper, and gets 5 assists per game to 2.3 turnovers. The matchup between him and Bibbins may decide this one.

    Utah is also good. Collette shoots an incredible percentage, Bibbins is the heart and soul, and Barefield can score lots of points is a short amount of time. Penn State doesn't shoot a great percentage from the floor. They averaged less than 40% in the Big 10 tournament. Utah needs to rebound.

    This will be a fun game.

    Win the NIT or lose in the first round of the NCAA?

    by loyter
    2018-03-28 14:18:37

    From an interview with Coach K earlier:

    Q. Pat Chambers was asked this last night, a hypothetical: Would you rather be winning the NIT or going to the NCAA and losing in the first round?
    HEAD COACH LARRY KRYSTKOWIAK: I'd rather be where we are. I've thought about that a lot. Some of it, it's easy to talk about in a hypothetical, because we sign up for this, No. 1, to compete and to play, and I've been on the other end of it where you lose the first round. And there's so much emotion built up into a season.

    The goal is getting to the NCAA Tournament -- and you lose a first round game. You know, it's great, but that's really not the feeling you want to have, either. There's a lot of failure built into that. This is about experiences. This is about competing.

    And for us, you know, to get the additional five or six -- I think it's five games, and have an opportunity to win and continue to bond; I love this team and this team loves playing with each other, so I get it where a basketball purist junk key would say, gee, we should fire our coach is he says that because this is the consolation prize; how dare he say that.

    Until you're in our shoes, coming to New York City and being in the Final Four in the NIT in a city with so much history and tradition -- look, I got an e-mail from Arnie Ferrin who played on Utah's team in 1947 when they won the NIT Championship, and there's still three living members on that team and we were all on a big thread.

    When he says to me, "Coach, one more, man, bring home the trophy" and the pride in all of that, to me, that is much more significant than getting to the NCAA Tournament and losing your first game.


    You know, if people want to run me out of town for that answer, I guess I'm going to live with it but they are not in our shoes and this has just been a great experience for us, and I don't think we'd trade it for anything in the world to be honest with you.

    UMBC, Nevada, Loyola Chicago prove why college basketball is so clearly superior to college football.

    by loyter
    2018-03-26 11:55:58

    Every team in the country, at the beginning of the season, has a chance to win it all. EVERY TEAM.

    In football, there are really only about 30 teams that can even hope to be included. Schools outside of the P5 have zero chance. (Utah, 2004, 2008)

    Football is a big sham. A popularity contest. ESPN spends the entire year telling us how great the SEC is and how they deserve to rise in the rankings week after week because they lose to each other and the conference is so tough. It's all P.R. and sales.

    Basketball is results on the floor. There is a little bit of question about those few bubble teams that got left out, but it's minor, and those teams could have performed better during the year or won their conference tournament to get in.

    Loyola Chicago is two games away from being the national champions. In a football-type system, they'd have played in the Hot Dog on a Stick bowl and would have been forgotten long ago.

    Thanks to Chris Hill. So many successes over the years.

    Final Four
    Fiesta Bowl
    Sugar Bowl
    Women's basketball Final Four
    2 #1 draft picks
    A bunch of All-Americans
    Ridiculous bowl record
    Ski Championships

    And many, many more.

    But the crowning achievement, without question in my mind, is the invite to the PAC 12. That was a goal for Dr. Hill from very early in his career and a HUGE stretch goal at that. Hill didn't do it on his own, but he was a major part of it. Sometimes you have to step back and just realize how fantastic it is to be in the PAC 12. Instead of Laramie, we're going to Pasadena, and so on.

    Best wishes to Dr. Hill and his family.
    Go Utes!

    Experimental rules

    by loyter
    2018-03-20 11:08:33

    I really don't like them. First of all, the quarter breaks are 4-5 minutes long and that's absolutely stupid. In the end, the number of media time-outs are the same, but the amount of stoppage time is longer.

    Also, in each quarter, a team shoots 2 free throws after 5 fouls. This takes away the intrigue of the 1 and 1 from fouls number 7-9. The 1 and 1 gives teams a better chance of coming back from a deficit and also rewards a team for not doing a lot of fouling during the half. The quarter system removes all that.

    This is kind of a dumb thing to worry about, since all 4 playoff teams had 1 or 0 losses last year. Of course Washington, with 2 losses, wasn't considered.
    (47 days ago, 0 stars)

    Alabama plays Duke (Neutral site), New Mexico State (home), and Western Carolina (home) this year.

    No point in having three difficult OOC opponents. The SEC blueprint is what should be followed.

    The slide up ads and the slide sideways ads are pretty out of control here.

    I predict Jayce averages a double double this year if he stays healthy.
    (68 days ago, 1 stars)

    Jayce gone. I'm sure excited for those 18 wins, 112 RPI, and being on the NIT bubble again this year!

    So, what you are saying is, "GET OFF MY LAWN!"?
    (74 days ago, 8 stars)

    The Utes have been poor to mediocre for a long time. Meanwhile, the Jazz are trending up and have a bonafide star player.
    (75 days ago, 4 stars)

    For his birthday, he gives us a brand new, original song. (A whole new album is due out in June)
    (76 days ago, 1 stars)

    Really, it's more of a "not enough evidence to indict" kind of thing than an exoneration.
    (88 days ago, 2 stars)

    Ahem, nobody is accusing anyone of obstructing crime. They are accusing him of obstructing justice.
    (88 days ago, 4 stars)

    Broken record around here... Big recruits come down to the end and then choose a different school, and the players we have transfer.
    (89 days ago, 1 stars)

    247 rounds seems excessive - that's all I'm saying.
    (96 days ago, 0 stars)

    None of those three will be anywhere near Jayce in terms of his defensive game.
    (96 days ago, 3 stars)

    So, gun laws equal slavery...got it.
    (96 days ago, 2 stars)

    Every single move Trump makes is just profit mongering for Trump or the people he thinks are his friends. (They aren't, they are just playing him like the puppet he is.)
    (96 days ago, 15 stars)

    Real question: Is there a policy in U.S. law enforcement that requires every cop on scene to fire all the available bullets once the first shot has been fired?
    (97 days ago, 7 stars)

    if Jayce goes, Larry also needs to go. This is ridiculous.
    (98 days ago, 2 stars)

    Most definitely a starter. He didn't score a lot of points, but he was fantastic toward the latter half of this year. Great defense and rebounding.
    (98 days ago, 0 stars)

    Larry played for Montgomery. He is probably a bigger influence now than Majerus, just because of Larry's ties. Larry never worked with Majerus at all.
    (98 days ago, 3 stars)

    The NCAA has gone from pretty much a joke to ABSOLUTE joke.

    Ahem...Drca.

    Telling that they basically had a Zion Williamson sad post-mortem video after the game.
    (105 days ago, 3 stars)

    A double technical is just a referee's way of publicly announcing his lack of testicles.
    (108 days ago, 7 stars)

    I thought it would lead to an ejection too.
    (108 days ago, 1 stars)

    I want to talk about that double technical in the Oregon game last night.
    (108 days ago, 1 stars)

    Houston followed the same blueprint. Hire a guy who's a known cheater and magically you have a good team.

    They made the Aggies look like the Utes.
    (115 days ago, 1 stars)

    Eat it, Fork.
    (115 days ago, 1 stars)

    The Aggies are making a little run. That missed dunk was spectacular...but it was missed because he got fouled. Ref blew that one.
    (115 days ago, 1 stars)

    Go Huskies!!!
    (115 days ago, 0 stars)

    I get that Zion Whatever for Duke is good, but I wish the announcers would make it about the game. The big story is that UND is within 4 points after a half, not that Zion is on the floor.
    (115 days ago, 1 stars)

    Yep, and all they ask is the blood of our children.

    Oh $#!+, I read that wrong. I'm so drunk right now!

    We'll really miss their ability to run nice routes, then not catch the ball.

    So, they aren't together, the court acknowledges that he won't be financially responsible... Who cares?

    That's what the dude left at the fertility clinic.
    (117 days ago, 4 stars)

    Larry had some damn good talent in some of those years too, still couldn't beat Altman.
    (123 days ago, 4 stars)

    Larry K is now 2-15 all time vs Altman.
    (123 days ago, 2 stars)

    Well that's nicely packaged up for us simpletons to understand. Thanks bro.
    (123 days ago, 10 stars)

    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    (123 days ago, 2 stars)

    They'll get a seeding walk into the sweet 16, then they'll play a good team and lose.

    I disagree on most of your points.
    (132 days ago, 3 stars)

    The days of Utah being a powerhouse basketball program are over. I'd say that all flamed out right after Bogut left.
    (132 days ago, 6 stars)

    This has to be loss of tourney eligibility for multiple years and loss of scholarships for same. Anything less and the NCAA is a TOTAL JOKE.
    (139 days ago, 3 stars)

    This team needs Donnie Tillman. Tonight, his effort and defense was excellent. In the UW game, his effort sucked and he played 23 minutes and Larry replaced him with the Ry-dosh kid.
    (142 days ago, 3 stars)

    Why would Kraft - with unlimited resources - go to a "spa" for this service?
    (143 days ago, 3 stars)

    Utah's offense is actually quite good.
    (144 days ago, 1 stars)

    A few quick thoughts about last night.
    (144 days ago, 4 stars)

    To be fair, the execution to get Gach that open 3 was pretty good.
    (145 days ago, 0 stars)

    That was a typical Larry short clock situation. Gach misses a rare open three then we give up a three at the other end as the clock expires.
    (145 days ago, 1 stars)

    RE: I would call it thoughtful. I would also say what I wrote is not contrary to the other day. So I guess I should ask you if your just a dick or unintelligent.

    (145 days ago, 7 stars)

    Utah missed 16 free throws (I'm counting the back halfs of three missed one-and-ones). That's the difference in the game.
    (149 days ago, 1 stars)

    Jimmy Soto had one on a coast to coast last second layup. Bryon Wilson hit a half-court shot in the Hunty.

    This is it, folks. There's no god or satan or afterlife. Live it up, #%!@ers.

    Larry K is 2-14 against Dana Altman.
    (165 days ago, 6 stars)

    Even more impressive that they managed to shoot 64% from 3 with several blocked shots out there.
    (171 days ago, 0 stars)

    I take it back. These highlights are actually pretty decent. Jace looks like he had a nice game.
    (171 days ago, 1 stars)

    The PAC 12 network's game highlight videos are consistently terrible.
