Yes I know this will be called "hateful" commentary by utah "fans" but the truth is this team will still be incredibly bad this year.

............ because you know each one of these kids personally, have coached them and know their strengths and weaknesses from watching them play.

This is a big trip for this team. Putting the trip off til this year was a great move by coach K. The extra time will certainly be needed for cohesion, but at first glance the team should be much improved talent wise than last year. I thought the effort last year was very good, if they do it again this year I think they should double their PAC 12 win total which should put them near .500. Obviously the schedule is weak, but I think that's a good move for this team right now.

Because I'm not some deluded utah "fan" that really believes the worst "major" college basketball program in the nation is going to improve all that much in only one year. It will be fun for me as you eat your words this coming season.

"This team will be incredibly bad this year" ......Maybe they won't be the best team but I think it's fair to say that they will be MUCH improved from last year. David Foster...The 7'3" Center will be back on the team and the Utes have the 2012 "Mr. basketball" (Utah) on their team this year as well. I think they will do much better this year than last, for sure. :)

Ah, ducky---the byu "fan" that can't resist taking potshots at the Utes.

The Pac-12 Network is picking up steam, ducky-boy. Pack your bags for an extended stay in Tulsa.

LOL!!

Hey Duckhunter... do me a favor and google "SNL Bennett Brauer" and watch one of the videos that pops up. Thats what I picture every time you comment. And as far as someone eating their words, you're the only one that needs to do that.

I for one am excited for this upcoming season. It should be night and day from last year. I'm not going to predict anything but more success than last year and some fun games to watch. Can't wait for November!

Coach Krystko should be the national coach of the year if he is over .500 this year. This turnaround will take time, but the Utah staff is putting the right pieces of the foundation in place.

@mama

Why would I need to "eat my words"? I'm correct. utah will be incredibly bad again this year. Yes I think their high school schedule will allow them to perhaps have a few more wins than last year but as utah "fans" like to tell us "beating bad teams is meaningless". This is a bad team, a bad program, and a bad athletic department. Live with it.

LOL!
