I may, but I don’t think I will ever stop watching and hoping. I watched every game I could throughout this whole 16 run of mediocrity. I was so hopeful when Jacob and Delon were going through, and notice I don’t even mention Kuz mainly because he was not really thought to be a NBA quality star until he all of a sudden was.
But I am disappointed. I’m trying to keep in perspective since there are teams like Oregon State and Washington State that just take it as a given that they will only have good years every 8-10 years when the stars align. But we shouldn’t be them, we have much more going for us. But it seems like we are them now, and I’ll just never be satisfied with that. That said, I will always watch. I am a Ute Fan now and forever, and will always love basketball and remember fondly the awesome years of the past. I always will be hopeful that we can figure it out such that we can have more than just a fleeting taste here and there.
I agree with the Larry doubts but I do worry if Maj was just a special guy that produced something that cant be reproduced. I do worry about the corrupt money that Utah won’t and shouldn’t promise, as well as the possible fame that other programs can offer. But I look around the league at the players that other schools in the PAC have, the ASU, Colorado, Washington, UCLA; why don’t we have players like theirs. Are these freshman/sophomores going to be that in a few years? Will they stay so we can see?
I said a few weeks ago that I wouldn’t get down on this team, but that was on the presumption they would continue getting better, not worse. Now I don’t know what to think…
