    RIP Willie Moore

    by pangloss

    Mr. Willie Moore

    Mr. Moore and his wife Betty were long time friends of my parents. My mother and Betty were childhood friends in Ogden. Over the decades they lost track of each other. One day my grandmother struck up a conversation with a black woman on the bus. They were both long time residents of Ogden. My grandmother mentioned her daughter in law, phone numbers exchanged, and after about 50 years their friendship renewed.

    Betty was married to Willie Moore, a barber and owner of a barbershop on 25th Street in Ogden. For years, Willie, Betty and my parents met often.

    I was close to 30 when their friendship grew and I met Betty and Willie. Willie was quite a character. His stories of a black man in Utah during the 1930's and 40's were great. He cut hair in the Hotel Utah before opening shop in Ogden and met dozens of famous people like JFK. He played for the Globetrotters. I dropped by his shop about a dozen years ago. He was in his 80's, still cutting hair six days per week. He said I looked raggy and cut my hair.

    When my son was about 5 he asked about his grandparents. I told him about my parents and my wife's parents. Then he asked how his other grandparents, Willie and Betty fit in. This is an old picture of my son, Mr. Moore, and another kid.

    I'm no coach and I'll support the Utes whatever they do, but the Utes should go back to their roots and play man-to-man defense.

    by pangloss
    2019-02-25 16:39:11

    With so many freshmen the Utes will make mistakes playing man. It's worth it.

    The extra effort with man defense transfers to offense. We saw that against WSU. The team played hard at both ends for 40 minutes. Rebounding is better. Tracking down loose balls is better. Playing 'monster' against star opponents is better. Players stay active, pay attention and don't turn into spectators.

    Utah has been a man D program since spot was a pup. Majarus thought if you had to play zone to win, it wasn't worth it (box & 1 the sole exception). The six inch in-your-face stance wasn't a zone. Unless you're Boeheim, one of his disciples, or Air Force, zone D is for sissies.

    2010 Syracuse

    by pangloss
    2019-02-21 14:25:56

    Washington is similar to the 2010 Syracuse team. Hopkins was the long time assistant to Bayheim and brought their defence with him.

    In 2010 Syracuse played in the NCAA regionals in SLC. That team started a 6'5" guard, three 6'6" - 6'8" swings and a 6'9" center. At least three players were drafted. They won the Big East regular season, then lost in the first round of the conf tourney. Despite that loss, they were a #1 seed in the NCAA and won their first game against Vermont by 24. They beat Gonzaga in the 2nd round by 22, 87-65. They played in the Salt Lake regional and lost in a 'shocking upset' to the Gordon Hayward Butler team, 63-59.

    I expect Washington will have a similar post season - without the #1 seed.

    Last night Syracuse beat #18 Louisville 69-49.

    This century, Utah's record against Arizona is awful - one win and a bunch of losses, I think.

    Tomorrow should be different. They've lost six of their last seven and five in a row. They've had bad loses against Wash St (14 points), @UCLA (21) and @USC (23). Last year's promising-but-underperforming freshman, five star PG Akot quit the team seven games ago when their losing funk started and will transfer to Boise.

    Jeter (6'10" center) and Randolph, the two who each scored 21 against the Utes in January have been inconsistent.

    Miller describes his team as fragile in terms of depth and talent. He's developed a nervous twitch in his left shoulder. He and Jeter look & sound like their dogs died in this week's news conference.

    So anyway, the Utes should pound 'em. The cats can't lose enough to make me happy, but they're going in the right direction.

    I'm probably influenced too much by prior years, but the games in bold seem like upsets. And there seemed to be a home court disadvantage, home teams 3 wins, visitors 8 with the So Cal teams getting swept at home by Colorado & Utah, Arizona getting swept, and ASU beating Washington at home after losing to WSU.

    Utah 77 @USC 70
    Colorado 84 @UCLA 73

    I expect the crowd will be flat today - afternoon game, coming off a loss and three losses in a row. I saw one of their recent games, I don't remember which one, and Bartow was in the face of a player screaming at him. I doubt he has a chance to be elevated and lose the interim tag. They're talented, but have folded - their 5 conference losses have all been by double digits.

    A theory of winning college basketball after a disappointing weekend.

    by pangloss
    2019-02-03 12:46:15

    First, a definition of 'win'. I think these are conservative milestones: getting into NCAA regularly (2 years out of 4), making sweet 16 occasionally (1 out of 5 years), competing for conference titles (top quartile 4 of 5 years). Other off-court requirements: academic excellence or close-to-it, no recruiting or other NCAA scandals, turds get run out after failing a second chance. There are other on- and off-court requirements, but these are a reasonable start.

    There are two ways to win in college basketball. Truism: Teams win when their roster includes 2 or 3 NBA or near-NBA talented players.

    The perennial marque programs (Duke, Kentucky, N.Carolina, Kansas etc.) and near-marque programs (Arizona, Oregon, Gonzaga, Michigan St. etc ) win by one of two routes: 1) By recruiting a couple one-and-done and two-and-done players every year.

    Or 2) Develop a few NBA or near-NBA juniors and seniors. The near-marque and near-marque-wannabes (Utah, Stanford, Tennessee, Wichita etc) usually win this way - with several players in their 3rd and 4th years of playing together.

    Utah's player turnover causes years like this one, where 50% of the minutes are played by the three freshmen and the sophomore, Tillman. They're inconsistent with flashes of great and bad. None of those four players are one-and-done and probably not two-and-done NBA talents. All four might develop into NBA or near-NBA talents as juniors and seniors and the Utes will win bigly. If the core players transfer, the Utes will stay in the "wait till next year or the year after" realm.

    I found this while wandering around virtual land. A couple of you might be interested.

    It shows the post-war assembly and launch of a V2 by the Brits using captured Germans and captured German equipment. A couple nifty things I saw were the portable 10 ton overhead crane and the <something-or-other> wagon. The special tooling, special equipment, ground support equipment and launch support equipment were also interesting, but my previous life selling stuff like that warped my interest. The trajectory of the rocket is a kick, 20 miles of thrust, 180 miles of ballistic arc. The 'launch troop' guy smoking a cigarette on the launch pad is a surprise.

    Turnovers killed Utah's chances. But Nevada caused most of them with tips & such. They're good. Coming into the game their 3 pt shooting looked like a weakness @ 34%. Utah sagged in to help and they shot 46%.

    I like the Utes' rotation - with Tillman & Barefield off the bench. The team is improving. I hope Tillman likes the rotation.

    December 18, 1976, Utah 70 - #3 Kentucky 68, Kentucky's first loss in the brand new Rupp Arena


    From the Des News 23 years after the game:

    "We had no chance," said Judkins, who had one of his best games ever, scoring 24 points. "Everybody back there thought it was over before it started. But we went out and really executed."

    Jonas recalls that even after they won, people couldn't believe it.

    "I remember waiting in the airport to go home with this huge trophy that they thought would never leave the state. Someone saw it and said, 'Hey what are you doing with our trophy?' "

    Here's how Jonas describes the game-winning play.

    "We got the ball with seven seconds left. I brought the ball up the left side and they expected us to go to Judkins and they double-teamed him. Earl Williams was all alone on the right side of the foul line so I passed it to him. When he hit the shot at the buzzer, it went from bedlam to absolute silence. All you could hear was our team celebrating and Bill Marcroft, saying 'Utah wins.' "

    "I've never seen anything like it," added Judkins. "The place was going crazy, but when Williams made that shot, it went dead silent."

    2018-12-01 12:54:56

    Washington's killer drive to start the 4th Qtr:
    17 plays
    5 first downs
    started on the Wash 6 went 73 yards to the Utah 20
    lasted 10 minutes
    ended with the blocked FG, but only 5 min left in the game

    Their third quarter drive was 14 plays, lasted 7 minutes and also ended with no score.

    Time of possession usually doesn't mean much, but it did last night-- Wash had the ball 17 minutes more than the Utes. They also ran 73 plays to Utah's 52.

    Congratulations to Washington. They beat Utah at its own game. I'm glad Browning and Gaston are seniors.

    Unless the equivalent of the Nixon tapes surfaces, the Republicans will stay in line. Impeachment & removal from office must be bi-partisan. Pelosi is no fool.

    You're probably right. A play-in or 15, or 16 seed has an uphill battle. I'd still like to see it.

    Miller's contract - he gets paid even if he is fired for cause. Amazing, one might think the Az administration was complicit or colluding.

    Overt voter suppression, ballot theft, minority voter registration obstruction, and ballot stuffing in places like N. Carolina is a REAL and much greater problem.

    How's this, 'the position is budgeted at $3.9 If Coach Krisco retires to the South Seas, Coach Connor would negotiate a different, and presumably smaller, salary.'

    After the ASU @AZ game, Miller sounded a lot like he's coached his last game in the desert. The feds are closing in, they alledgedly have him on tape discussing then-recruit Ayton and $100,000

    Yea, I suppose. Google "examples of rt propaganda" Any of the million article will probably do. RT is part of the Russian disinformation campaign. They've burned their legitimacy bridge.

    And you're right, "Appeals to authority are the preferred logical fallacy of the gullible." But RT is different. They really are 'fake news'

    I'm not defending Rep. Omar. I think she has been unfairly maligned as anti-Semitic. I'm just pointing out that RT is the Russian embodiment of fake news. They're worse than Fox.

    Pence is awful, but he would have a worse chance than Ford, I think. Impeach the orange one and the personality cult would go away eventually, like Caligula's followers.

    No offense.
    (10 days ago, 2 stars)

    I think the impeachment process would take too long. If the orange one is re-elected (god forbid), then impeachment is back on the table. Sort of the Benghazi example for now, except legit.

    He has a valid point. In a criminal court he could get off. House impeachment and Senate trial rules are not bound by criminal trial rules. So, who knows.
