Thank you..Now please explain the coorelation of a weak schedule and the NCAA
Tournament. Since the second round of said tournament seems to elude you every
single time you run through your weak schedule and make it to the Dance. But if you need more help, ask Bronco about a weak schedule and false
National Respect. The song "Free Fallin'" comes to mind.Please BYU
fans, don't try and explain RPI, or National Respect to the Utes. We have plenty
BYU has a much lower RPI than yewtah because we have yewtah on our schedule and
yewtah's RPI is really high because they have to play BYU. See how that works?
Easy, huh yewt fans? You're welcome.
To all u "sagarin" geniuses posting today, it's still way too early in the
season for Sagarin ratings to have any meaning. Just thought someone should tell
GO UTES. Good win.
Okay,Look at today's RPI Utah is 17 bYu is 58 USU is 60 nuff
The only ranking that matters for the selection committee is RPI.
All I know is the last time that Utah had a coach who preached defensive
intesity, demanded effort and held them accountable this program dominated the
MWC and faired well in the Dance. I am seeing those similarities, just look at
Neville, he is in shape, taking ownership and working his tail off. Hope it
works out the way it did when the Fat guy wore the sweater. GO UTES
Utah # 14 (SOS 87)BYU #38 (SOS 336)Utah will play #13 Ok
and #3 Gongaza --a win against one of these 2 (or 2 wins) will be GREAT.
As much as I love the UTES, the loss to SW Baptist will hurt them a lot come
selection time if they're on the bubble, (non MWC tournament champions), and
they are competing with other schools looking for bids. That loss to a division
II school is going to keep them out of the big dance.They haven't
even started their conference schedule, and they will play UNLV and BYU twice,
so talking about March and wins/losses is a little premature.
The Pomeroy ratings, which claim to be better than the RPI, has Utah at 5 and
BYU at 22
Who dies he embarrass? The players love his attitude as a coach, and as a
longtime fan I love it too. He makes the kids work, and his idea of having
kepkay and green come off the becnh is a great one. It gives them alot of
firepower with the second unit. If you don't like to hear him get the fans
involved, then leave before he does it. They've won five in a row for the first
time in w while so something must be working. Plus, Gonzaga, Oklahoma and Cal
are still waiting. If they could get one win, great, two would be awesome and
all three would shut alot of people up. I love Jimmy aqnd I love the Utes. It
was a fun game to watch.
Kewg fans will not forget the SW Baptist loss all year! I loved the comment:
"Only a delusional Utah fan would believe that the tournament selection
committee won't consider the loss to SW Baptist come tournament selection
time."Let me give you a little lesson on the NCAA Basketball
Tournament since you and your team haven't had much experience with it. The SW
Baptist loss was the first game of the season. The selection committee reviews
the entire schedule, RPI and end of season momentum. The first game of 30 has
very little impact, period. Now if the Utes lost a game to a DII team at the
end of the season, it would have a significant impact.I know you
need something to hope for since you are living in the very large shadow of Utah
Utes basketball. We have a rich tradition and have had a great deal of success
in the NCAA Tournament. Please look for something else, the SW Baptist loss
will not hurt our chances come tournament time.Maybe you should
focus on ways to get out of the 1st round? Was 1993 your last tournament
Just checked today's RPI rankings: Utah - #6 in country. Utah State - #118.
BYU - #126.
sorry that Jim Boylen cant have the missionary comb over of dave rose, also i am
sorry that the Utes have some serious energy at there games. Question, Do the Quest for Perfection T-Shirts carry over to the basketball
team?That way people will feel like they are getting their moneys
Jim "The Screamin' Demon" Boylen does it again! No, not the win - the microphone
at the end of the game! It's hilarious to watch him woofing into the mic like
he's in Wrestle-mania! What a joke! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Oregon has a very weak team and will most likely finish 8th or 9th in the
PAC-10. It's good to get a win over a PAC-10 team but this was not a good
I thought Boylen ruined kepkays game...shows what you know. Now the only thing
you have left to complain about is him grabbing the mic. You dont know
basketball so shut your yap.
It's good to hear that Shaun Green is scoring some decent numbers. The guy can
shoot and I thought last year that he didn't shoot enough. He needs to step up
and lead the team because he can. Nice win.
First, I was at the game, and second, I was rooting for the Ducks as a graduate
of both the U and the U of O. Oregon is a good win any year. Its a
PAC 10 school that regardless, has a good ring to it "we beat Oregon.That said, the win will look less and less impressive as the year progresses
and as Tajuan Porter begins to single handedly lead the Ducks to at best maybe
double digits in wins. Combine that with Oregon's best player leaving midway
through the second half (I will concede it was over then anyways) and the win
was a given for the U. The Utes did look impressive. The great
thing about the schedule this year, is that Utah will know how good they really
are well before conference. It would really surprise me if this UTE team didn't
make the NCAA tournament.
I totally agree, The Ute fans who dont want him to talk are probably the same
guys who would just love to have Ray G. back. I for one Love to see jim scream
after the games, you take the passion out of the game and you will have the same
team from 3 and 4 years ago, remember how soft Luke N was playing, now he will
probably be a draft pick. Jim is the Real deal and he is getting this program
back on track. Love the schedule he put together, you have to play the best to
be the best, maybe BYU will figure that out eventually, or maybe they will keep
losing when it counts.GO UTES, GO JIM Bto all the ute fans calling
for him to stop screaming after games, GO TO THE MARRIOTT CENTER!!!
game by game i am starting to have some hope. keep it up utes
to all the people who tell Jim B. to not talk on the mic: SHUT UP! It is awesome
to have some passion and energy in the program again and Jimmy should speak his
mind whenever he feels like it. The haters out there are most likely TDS fans
who hate when Utah has a good coach and if not then go away band wagon ute fan
between BYU fans downplaying Utah wins and Utah fans downplaying Utah losses?At this point, nobody knows for sure which wins will indeed be quality
wins, but, one thing is for sure, there's no excusing a loss to a DII team,
ever, even if that DII team goes on to win the DII NCAA championship.If Utah goes on to have a stellar season, 1st or 2nd in the MWC, 25 wins, the
loss to SW Baptist will be overlooked. However, if Utah ends the season as a
bubble team, that loss could spell doom to Utah's NCAA tournament chances.
A nice win. just continuing MWC dominance over the Pac-10. This team is
certainly playing with more confidence than last year, I think they are more
comfortable in the system. It was nice to see a win where the Utes didn't have
to slow it down and try to pound them. Fast paced game with some great
Don't worry fellow Utes......only a few months ago Y fans were flocking to our
football articles, downplaying our wins. "Michigan is a terrible team"....sound
familiar? And they kept doing it all season until three weeks ago Utah gave
them the business, putting an end to that argument.So BYU fans
downplaying Utah's wins is only to be expected. It's the way they show fear.
"SW Baptist games doesn't count for a loss come tournament time."DON'T COUNT ON THE LOSS BEING IGNORED!Only a delusional Utah fan
would believe that the tournament selection committee won't consider the loss to
SW Baptist come tournament selection time.The reason Division II
games aren't included in RPI is because DII teams are so far off the charts.
Wins don't count against DII teams because they're seen as gimme's. Losses to
DII teams, however, will certainly be looked on with a disdainful eye by the
This Oregon team will be really good in the future. They have mostly freshman, a
few sophs, and 3 jr's. They have lost games you cant explain to Oakland, just
like Utah losing to SW Baptist. But Oregon has already faced Texas and a
dominant UNC team. Look for the Ducks to make a run next year!
That Oregon gaurd was an amazing shooter. If it wasn't for that guy, the Ducks
would have lost by 35.
Nice comments No Good and Nice Win . . . Hey, Max just thew me the ball (yes, I
was wearing red, my fault)!Nice win Utes! Keep it rolling.
Wow it's amazing to see the Cougars flock to Utah articles to downplay wins by
the Utes. It just brings a smile to my face actually, because it proves, once
again, that Zoobies are just as low as they claim Utah fans are. Don't be
jealous just because we actually schedule good teams. Have fun with your
cupcake schedule, just like football. You'll be exposed in due time, and until
then we'll work our way back to where we belong.. on top! Oh, and don't even
try to bring up the argument that quality teams refuse to play you, because
everyone knows that's just a load of BS.
Hope the first two posters weren't ute fans. I feel sorry for you if you are.
I'm a BYU fan, but this solid win over a PAC10 team and a W over a good SEC team
is impressive, more impressive than any BYU win so far.
Looks like a certain jealous kewgs fan needs to get some sleep. He/she should
know that the SW Baptist games doesn't count for a loss come tournament time.Oregon is a good program and this was an excellent win for the Utes.You may want to follow the RPI ratings when speaking about tournament
selections. If the Utes get 20 wins with their schedule, they will be in the
tournament come March.Go Utes!
Great game UTES! Too bad the evening had to end with Bullwinkle grabbing the
microphone and yelling into it, yet again embarassing folks. Someone, anybody,
please tell Boylen to not speak into a microphone. He he can't resist then at
least talk like an adult, with a normal voice tone. He screams like an idiot,
sounds like the Castle of Greyskull. GO UTES!
The win against oregon tonight was not much of a win this was a poor oregon
team. Oregon lost to oakland U at home and that same oakland team lost to suu
by about 20 points on tuesday night. Dont forget about SW baptist with that
loss the only way utah is going to the NCAA tourn is by winning the conference.
Oregon was t a good win for the utes. They lost earlier in the year to oakley
university at home, and that same oakley team lost to suu tue night by right
around 20 points. Don't forget utah lost to SW baptist.
