sam, The only point you've made is with your vehemence about
all this. It's easy to see you are still drinking the Bronco-blue Kool-Aid
. . . you can't wait for him to announce another quest for the NC this
Dear John,"It has apparently escaped your notice that Coach
Kinneburg, unlike Bronco, is not a repeat offender. Big difference."Is there something 'offensive' about a coach inspiring his
players to go for the ultimate reward in his sport, a championship?You have perfectly proven my point.I guess a Ute
'resurch' project has discovered that hypocrisy has to occur multiple
times before it actually exists.Can I get an honorary Ute degree for
my collaboration in this project?Thanks for playing and being such a
sam:It has apparently escaped your notice that Coach Kinneburg,
unlike Bronco, is not a repeat offender. Big difference.But thanks
for all the attention you three have given to Ute baseball. Now if only ducky
would keep his word and obsess over the Utes from afar . . .
@johnyAh the old justification ploy. How typically hypocritical of a
John, (since we are on a first name basis now)You still don't
get it. I'm not surprised. Utes critcize BYU for declaring
their intentions for an NC in football. It's not about one particular
instance. Ute fans say 'we' play one game at a time. We don't
declare such foolish things, we're in a big conference, etc. U know the
mantra.Utes baseball coach declares his pre-season goal just like
BYU in football... 'we're going for Omaha'. This is something
that the majority of Ute fans on these boards ridicule BYU for declaring and you
now suffer the humiliation of 3 BYU fans telling you about it. The
three of us are certainly a 'force to be reckoned with'. Geesh.Grow some skin.Ute double-standard and hypocrisy pointed
out, it was never about the scores of either team.
@ sammygThe difference is that Ute fans didn't embrace
Kinneberg's comments. While many BYU fans thought their team was an actual
contender for a national championship (which is hilarious on multiple fronts).
What happened to the Omaha-bound Utes we heard about earlier this year?
"Why is it ok for one school to declare it intentions for a championship in
one sport and not for another school in another sport?"sam:Sorry, no get. When Bronco first declared his Quest, it was the Utes
instead that perfected it. That gave Ute fans certain license, which we used
again, when he did it again, and failed again. But this time around I don't
see your blue team anywhere NEAR Omaha, so you have no license to criticize.ducky:Are you STILL here?
Dear JohnInSLCIf you would follow sports stories closely and the
subsequent commentary then you would realize that the only reason that any
comments appear on this article are in direct response to your Ute coach
declaring his intentions to go to Omaha earlier in the year. Why is
it ok for one school to declare it intentions for a championship in one sport
and not for another school in another sport? Don't bother answering. We
already know.Can you see a double standard here? Bass, Duck, myself
and probably a few others picked up on the story months ago so here we are.
Three guys with some good ol' tongue in cheek comments and you take it
seriously.Get over yourself. The story and our comments have nothing
to do with baseball win or loss records. It's about the hypocrisy and humor
we see in all of it.Gotcha!
bass, ducky and sammy:You guys love living in a glass house, eh?It's rather amusing that you three y "fans" show up here
bagging on Ute baseball, particularly when your blue team ended its losing
season with a loss to that powerhouse Gonzaga. The y's 10-14 conference
record is particularly abysmal since the WCC only got two teams into the NCAA
tourney. The Pac-12 is sending five.
@qwestNo, it is a high point as evidence by your tortured reply.
@Qwest Perfected"Two comments on a Utah baseball article?
Isn't that even a low point for you? I think it's time for you to get
a life"So says the man whose moniker is based entirely on
Anyone want a slightly used 'Omaha or Bust' Ute tee-shirt?
@DuckhunterI think the best step is admitting you have a problem. Your
obsession with the U is very unhealthy.
@duckyTwo comments on a Utah baseball article? Isn't that even
a low point for you? I think it's time for you to get a life.Oh
and real bass - the PAC didn't invite Utah based on the performance of
their baseball team just as they didn't take a close look at our track and
field team either. However they did take our ski team into consideration. I'm sorry that your team still has yet to be invited to a
conference. Maybe this will be your year.
@Real BassExcept they aren't even competitive with Cal St.
Isn't it about time Utah gave up the facade of being PAC worthy. Your
sports programs have been shown to be shallow and not competitive at this level.
Perhaps you should find out what conference Bakersfield is in and apply for
@sgI believe the coaches at the U have the knowledge to coach in the PAC
12, is what they need is someone who can recruit players to a PAC 12 school that
plays in cold weather with less than average baseball facilities and support for
the program. I watched them play many times myself and there is a big gap in
talent. If they can't recruit players that are PAC 12 talent then the
coaches should be held responsible and a change must be made.The talent gap from
the top 7 PAC 12 teams to Utah is the size of the grand canyon right now.
It is time for the UofU to re-examine their head coach and coaching staff. This
staff is NOT even close to being a PAC-12 coaching staff. The head coach is
below average in his entire career, the pitching coach doesn't know what
the heck he's doing or how to effectively call a game (I should know,
I've been to the games). It is time for the school to get rid of the head
coach and the pitching coach. I hope this season's record is enough for the
school and athletic director to think twice of keeping these guys in the
program. New coaches, young and hungry, is what this baseball needs, not old,
fat and slow in movement, action and decisions.
14-42 is not going to get you to Omaha coach.
