This game will be a decent test for Coach K and the boys. It looks like they are still working on getting the chemistry down and getting a feel for each other. I hope they get it figured out by tomorrow night or it won't be pretty.

I wonder how many utes will run from the team this year after they start their losing streak. It will suprise me if no one leaves and I will lay odds that there will be some de-commits by the time the season is through. The door mat of the pac 12 will be so bad that they will have to start recruiting from the community colleges in North Dakota and Montana to get someone to play for them.

Though you clearly want to see Ute recruits and players continue to bail, it won't be happening.
Think about it for a second...the players that stuck with the Utes would have no benefit to leave now because of transfer rules and what year they are in school.
As for the new recruits, both current 1st year players and next years class, do you honestly think a tough year will surprise any of them? They were all aware of the mass exodus before they signed. Meaning they know full well the challenge ahead for the Utah program and they all signed on to be part of that rebuilding process and the opportunity for playing time that comes with it.
I know you and others like you are anxious to see the Utes keep falling but the fall will be over after this season.
This staff is getting the right kind of player and the right kind of commitment from these new recruits. It won't be long before Utah is back to being the best program in the state. I give it 3-5 years tops.

And all the others from the last two years didn't know? LOL !

All it takes is for a new recruit to enter the HC and see all the empty seats and one little thing to go wrong and it is all over again. Transfer rules are transfer rules and it didn't seem to stop the others from running away from the train wreck! In 3-5 years from now, the program will still be on the bottom of the pac 12 and still trying to find some good players to come and stay long enough to finish the season. Just sit back and enjoy the constant scene changing with all the faces coming and going. Then all you ute fans can say, "Hey, they used to play for the u", and try to adopt them as their own.

What don't you understand about NEW COACHING STAFF and that players are making a commitment while Utah is at their low point.
Your rational, or lack thereof is complete fluff.
There was a time to bail and those that wanted to bail obviously did.
Feel free to come back and let me know I was wrong when ANY of the current players and committed recruits go somewhere else. Pretty confident I won't be hearing back from you on that.
