I was at the game, and there aren't any words to describe this team. We're a
couple years away from competing at any level. Despite Storey's gaffe of a
timeout call, he looks like a decent player. I liked what Coach K is doing, I
think he has some good schemes but the players he has running his stuff wouldn't
play for a local JuCo with the exception of a couple guys. Not that we expected
anything different, but we could be in for a really long season. I hope I'm
wrong. But if I were an odds maker, my over under on wins for this team would be
I think you are being extremely generous in saying this team wins 7 games.
Although I may be giving the Pac a little too much credit. Arizona lost to a D2
team as well so maybe Utah can scrape out a few wins once they get into league
play.Is Adams St. a "research institution"? They looked
like they belong with the Pac 12.Ouch.
Give Coach K time to clean up Boylen's mess.
Wow!Utah and BYU both played poorly against teams they should have
handled easily. I am disappointed to read of this loss. I hope Foster and the
rest of the Utah team get healthy quickly.I was pleased to read of
the potential of a couple of the players. Looks like Coach K will have a long
uphill battle this season in preparing his players for a better tomorrow.I hope that Utah can find some answers quickly. . . and that the Cougars
can do the same.
The great start was getting the #1 player in the State for the 2012 class.It takes time to rebuild a program. If BYU can go from 1-25 I don't see
why Utah can't rebuild. We're not in that bad of a shape. We'll see how good
Coach K really is by end of next season. Go Utes!!
Considering the start to this year's schedule I'm sure Ute fans are glad Chris
Hill took Utah State off their schedule. That was definitely the smart move.Oh well, the Utes have 10 days to bounce back and get healthy and
prepared for Sand Diego Christian College.
Was this a regular season, or preseason game?
I can't wait for December 10 to avenge the 44 point loss to the Utes FB team. I
wouldn't be surprised if the Cougs topped the Utes by 44 in the Huntsman.If the Utes don't get a win in one of their first four games, they could
go winless for the season. Adams State may be the weakest team on the schedule.
Although San Diego Christian College is not much better.I hope the
Ute fans will continue to support their team, even if they are 1-25 this year.
Even when the Cougs were 1-25 (many years ago), there was still good fan
support. The Ute fans completely gave up on the team last year. They need your
support if they are going to rebuild.I think it's very disrespectful
to refer to Coach Krystkowiak as Coach K. There is and will ever be only one
Coach K. If you don't know how to spell his name, U should refer to him as
Coach Kry or K2. The name comparison does neither Coach K nor Coach Krystkowiak
See I told you Jimmer was betterest.
Uteology"We'll see how good Coach K really is by end of next
season."After one exhibition game loss, you're already looking
ahead to the end of next season?
Hmm... so anyone want to retract the statement of UU being "too good"
to play USU?? If this is the way UU plays, USU should only offer 2-1s.. They
come to Logan twice and the SPECTRUM itself beats UU (no discredit to Thoseby
and Co.) and then we go teach Loveridge why we offered him last, and open up the
Spectrum- Salt Lake Center inside the Huntsman Center.
So it has already begun.....Give (insert new coach's name here) time
to clean up (insert previous coach's name here) mess.LOL
Veritas...."Give Coach K time to clean up Boylen's

How bout them Utes.They're sure, movin on up...
@jenny83It was exibition. Considering exibition games are supposed
to be scheduled wins this doesn't bode to well for the regular season. Enjoy it,
you ute "fans" have earned it.

point.Tell me, how long did you think it would take?
Ute fan hold on tight, I had the chance to watch your team practice a couple
weeks back at a coaching clinic. They will struggle and they will get blown out
a lot. If Foster is out they will be dead last in college basketball.I do like Coach.
If only 4 players are Boylen's then K brought in the rest.I know, I
know, the cupboard was VERY bare.We just keep hearing the same thing
every time a new coach comes in. Boylen was cleaning up the Giac mess. Now K
is cleaning up the Boylen mess. Who is next and how long with Utah
fans give him to clean it up?
BTW, Coach K is @ Duke. The U is in Miami.
"Even when the Cougs were 1-25 (many years ago), there was still good fan
Uteologythe #1 player in the state will have transferred by the end of
next season. Don't look too forward to that time.
Get healthy, learn from this exibition game, and prepare for the next one. It's
going to be a long journey. Now let's see some wins!Go Utes!
Maybe they should have White IVIV suit up?
Hmmm, hmm hmmm hm, hmmmmm, i am wondering juat how meaningless or meaningful
this game is for the Utes? The local media always seem to be soft and quite the
spin doctors for the Utes. That said, i hope the ute spin machine will call a
spade a spade......this Ute basketball team will struggle to win even one game
this year.HMMMMMMMLosing agaimst a D3 team is just not good for a
once very proud program under the Buffett Mr. Majerus
@Kosta....actually that is quite correct. While attendance slacked
off, more fans would tune into a BYU basketball game than a Ute football
game.....BYU just has a lot more fam support.I am not one to
translate that into a better overall program in Football....all it means is that
BYU has more overall fan support tham does Utah. But hey, as Rainintime
points out, the Utes gets more media support, at least locally, than does BYU,
save KSL only.
@ VAggie"BTW, Coach K is @ Duke. The U is in Miami".There is no "U" in Miami! There is a "U" in Utah
"I just made a mental mistake on my part," the guard from Maryland
said. "I'm a freshman. I'm going to learn from it."Maybe
it was your fault. Did the coach tell how how many timeouts were left during
the last timeout? If not, it is on him, too.@Kosta, it might be
"demonstrably false," I don't know, but if it is, demonstrate it.
VAggie,Please don't brag up every aggie exploit in terms of the Spectrum.
Are you saying that USU can win only in the Cache Valley? Great teams don't just
win at home.
VAggie They don't even bother learning the coaches names anymore.
They come and go too fast.
Adams State.....are you kidding me utes? hahahahahahaha, wow...it's going to be
an awesome year...isn't it?
This just may be an omen of things to come ... The roster has Xan Ricketts, who
was a marginal player at Brighton HS a couple of years ago. He is now a Ute
after spending last year averaging less than 2 points a game at Simon Fraser .
(That's in Canada , folks ). The future looks bleak indeed .
DuckHunter....and your team deserved 54-10
Lol, I get two responses to my post and they can be summed up as follows1) there are more BYU fans than Utah fans (wow.....albert einstein would
be proud. next,we are going to have people argue that the sun indeed rises in
the east and sets in the west).2) prove it. To you sir, I simply
say, google is your friend!
VAggie "BTW, Coach K is @ Duke. The U is in Miami." You also forgot,
the 'Team Down South' is Ohio State. Gotta love fans like News For
U, who think the Utes are origional. Come on, hold your ringers and touch thumbs
and make a U... you know like Miami copies now. The Utes should start the
tomohawk chop, but as soon as they do someone like Florida State or the Atlanta
Braves will copy that as well. LOL
@jenny83Yes I know, 54-10, it was a bummer, still is. But of course
utah is a D1 football program, Adams St is a division 3 nobody. When your
program is losing to div 3 teams no one has ever heard of then you are
officially terrible. Yes utah "fans" deserve it.LOL!
Wasn't Adams State in revenge of the nerds? Even Pac12 scrubs should beat the
nerds. Oh well, tough year has already started on the hill.
It's going to be a long year.Please get rid of the Runnin' UTES on
the uniforms, there is nothin' runnin' about this team and it looks like
something that should be on a 6th grade AAU uniform. I think UTAH is just fine
on the jerseys. I guess it's better than U, US and the Wuss on the uni's, so
sad when there's nothing else to talk about.
