"We are working hard. We're preparing for a tough conference. We'll be one of the most in-shape teams in the country, we'll be one of the hardest playing teams in the country and we're hungry to win."

Thanks for coming back! I am excited to see you claw your way back to the top! It sounds like we have a great coaching staff in place, and great young men to support.

Go Utes!

Santa Monica, CA

Here's a message back to you. I appreciate all you do as a student athlete. Also---make your team as tough as you are. Whatever you have to do. The biggest flaw in this team over the past few years hasn't been that you haven't been talented enough or well coached, it's that the players aren't tough. Don't let that tag follow you through this season. Be a leader. Make them tough and hard nosed and the kind of guys who will NEVER quit. You do that---I'll stick with you through good times and bad. Best of luck. Go Utes!

I got a message for you Ute fans get ready for another bad basketball team and season. It will be a losing season once again. You will be at least the 3rd or 4th best team in the state. Also hope that you average more fans to the basketball games then the gymnastic meets. Probably not!!

Iowa City, IA

Thanks for playing hard guys. Will try to make it to some games, if travel allows. Good luck this season!


"You will be at least the 3rd or 4th best team in the state."

Uh, you do know what "at least" means, right? If you wanted to be derogatory, you should have chose "at most" or "at best". Good ol' Spanish Fork smack-talk, it is "at best" mediocre...
