Brown said he transferred to a place he could win. At that time Colorado was as
bad or worse than Utah.
What Brown said indicates that Boylen needed to go earlier than he did. When
comments are made about having to be in the locker room, film sessions and
practice to know what the players felt and endured you know it could not have
been pretty. What a shame. I hope this can be fixed.
@ernestThe fact he transferred to a program just as bad really says
something about the utah program.
DuckhunterI hate to say it but you are right. As a long time Ute,
Dr Hill should take all the blame for this fiasco. What a shame that our
program has come to this. With Coach Kry and Tommy up there things will change,
it may take some time (two years) but atleast it will turn around. You BYU guys
will probably have another year or so to give us the "dog" but it's
going to be a blast when we finally come around and win a game against you
guys.Anywhere else this guy would have lost a job (Hill). But
apparently because of football the guy walks on water. Utah fans don't get me
wrong he has done a lot for our athletic program but to see the decisions he's
made with BB to go from a once top 15 program to now in the 300's-WOW. This
Brown kid was a good one, but he had to get out of a sinking ship which what our
program had become.
@MLHThe funny thing is that football has only been a bit above
average. Yes two great seasons that every utah alum and fan should be proud of,
but aside from those two years they have been only slightly better than average.
Very few conference titles, actually only in those 2 undefeated years, some
really bad losses on occasion, and very few double digit win seasons. I suppose
the pac12 invite helps cover some of the reality of it as that was also a
euphoric moment for utah fans but any close look at the record will show a
pretty average team.At the same time utah has had only sporadic
success with the rest of their sports, so I really do wonder why there is so
much chris hill love. My guess is because utah's football has become reliably
competitive, something they were not for a very long time, and ute fans suffered
during all that time because of how bad they were and how good BYU was.Sometimes it would appear that even moderate success, in place of no success,
can carry a guy a long way.It is a shame about the BBall program
At the time Brown left, I was pretty upset that he made that decision but
learning more about Boylen and the direction of the program Brown made the best
decision for him.It is crazy to think how fast the program dropped
off after winning a conference championship. Looking forward, I do
believe that the new coaching staff has this team headed in the right direction.
They seem to be able to actually teach the players and help them improve but
they seem to be better recruiters too.I hope they can continue to
turn this program around.
@MLH "You BYU guys will probably have another year or so to give us the
"dog" but it's going to be a blast when we finally come around and win
a game against you guys."I hate to be the bearer of bad news,
but it's going to be more than a year or so before U beat the Y at BB. 10 wins
would be a good year for you next year, and .500 the following year would show
good progress for U. If you set your sites higher, you will be disappointed.
Not sure if you've been following the Y, but four Freshman are
making a major impact this year. Tyler Haws is back next year. K. Collinsworth
is back the following year. Both were impact players before they went on their
missions. There's a chance we get C. Collinsworth back. Jordan Chatman, Isaac
Neilson, TJ Haws and Nick Emery are names for the future. Cougars will be a 25
win team for the foreseebal future, and there is not a loss to U in site.
@txcougfanHave you followed the cougs basketball team this year?
They have 3rd place locked up in the WCC and they are still on the bubble of the
NCAA tournament. At this point, they will have to win their conference
tournament to make it. You're not as much of a powerhouse that you think you
are. How about you concentrate on how the cougs are going to win it
all "next year" and let us worry about how many wins the Utes will
QPUnless you're on the NCAA tournament selection committee, you
don't have a clue whether BYU will be invited as an at-large team so quit
spouting your clueless opinions.Utah fans have been in denial for
years that vast improvement was just around the corner. It's been 7 years since
sweaterman left, yet the only light at the end of the tunnel is the smoldering
trainwreck that was once a pretty good basketball program.BYU is
181-51 during the Dave Rose era with 7 consecutive 20+ win seasons.Utah is
100-114 during the same time period with only one 20+ win season and five losing
CFIT, I'm glad for you for the stability that you have in the future, because
that is important, all of those guys seem like solid potential college role
players. But they don't seem to be potential college stars. Utah has a few guys
coming in that were much more star-power type guys and have the potential to be
big playmakers. How any of these guys between the two schools will turn out is
yet to be seen, however, so we'll have to wait. Either way, you're better than
us this year, so congratulations and good luck. We'll see about next year.
Hill walking on water because of utah football??? I guess if you're looking at
a mirage it would be possible to think that. Or you could go the other
option... but then you might want to consider that the ice is a little thin for
even him to be out on. One way or the other the illusion will vanish and fade
QPThis is a rebuilding year for the Y... and a shaky one at that with
Collinsworth and Rogers going out early with injuries...hardly compares to the
final gasps of a ship that just slipped beneath the waves bow first ans hasn't
pancaked on the bottom yet.
@stgoslc"Utah has a few guys coming in that were much more
star-power type guys and have the potential to be big playmakers"LOL!Please stg, you are absolutely killing me here. utah does not
have a single player of the caliber of Tyler Haws "coming in". Nor do
they have anyone that has even the slightest inkling of "star
power".Delusional utah "fans" are absolutely my
favorite pastime to read comments from.LOL!
"utah does not have a single player of the caliber of Tyler Haws "Umm, you're killin me here, man. Jordan Loveridge is widely considered
one of the best players in the West. Glen Dean and Aaron Dotson were both
dominant high school players in Seattle (saying King County, WA is a bigger
basketball scene than Utah County would be the understatement of the century).
