Well the Utes might be able to beat up Boko the Bobcat in TX but when they come to Provo next week, I'm pretty sure Cosmo the Cougar will be ready to play ball.

Quiet U.

The Utes just beat the 276th ranked team on the road; show some respect.

It's certainly nice to get a road win, way to go Utes! This week is going to be much more tough, both teams a very good teams. This will be a nice measuring stick just to see how far we've come! Let's go Utes, surprise us!

"It's on," Krystkowiak said. "I think this week feels a little bit like Pac-12 basketball."

Boise State feels like Pac12? BYU could finish in the upper half of the PAC, but Boise State? Wait until you go to Tucson.

I still think this non-conference schedule did nothing to prepare Utah for PAC12 basketball. The only challenging teams are BYU, SMU and Northridge. Utah should have scheduled a couple of other challenging games like Utah State or an old MWC foe like Colorado St to help them improve. This schedule may make a few boosters feel a little better with a few extra wins but it does very little for the teams development. Unfortunately, I still think the Utes will only win 2 or 3 games in conference play and have a real chance of losing them all.

Can't wait for the Utah vs BYU game.

The Utes have seen the highs and are working their way out of the lows, I am glad to see the improvement. As for the BYU fans derisive comments, I find them ironic. It is like they have forgotten the late 90's when their team was busy winning 1 game and the Utes were going to sweet 16's, elite 8's and the final four. Not to mention the fact that BYU had their best offensive player (Fredette) and best Defender (Emery) in school history and they could only muster a sweet 16 appearance.
Maybe the Utes and Cougs will get a 2nd chance to play one another when they both get invited to the College Basketball Invitational (CBI)tournament at the end of the season.

Nice W Utes!

It is undeniable that this team is better than last year. OOC schedule aside, if you know anything about basketball, you recognize this. How much better will be determined this week.

Go Utes!

Good to get the win. Good to have a winning record. I didn't realize it was that longs since the last road win, woof.

It's progress. If they can go 4-1 over the next 5 games, that puts the team an 9-2, which is a great place to be going into the PAC-12 season. I think the team is good enough to pull off some upsets, but continue to have some head scratchers. I do expect them to improve, hopefully pull off some Pac-12 wins on the road. If last year's team could pull off 3 Pac-12 wins, I would expect this team to win 5-6, and that leaves them with a 14-15 win season, which I think is a very successful one.

I'm encouraged by what the staff is doing, and how the players are responding

Go Utes.

Oh c'mon, it isn't like Cougars fans didn't hear all about that horrid season from Ute fans. Too typical, can dish it out but can't take it when it's dished back.

Both these teams are bad this year. At least some fan bases know that their team isn't great, and aren't saying that Cal State Northridge is a solid program...

It is also probably an accurate assessment that both these teams are CBI bound.

If my beloved Utes make the CBI, then they will have eclipsed expectation. I hope you're right.

Nice to see the Utes pick up a road win. No matter how good the opponent is, it is still harder to win on the road and its a good accomplishment for this team.

I hope this team can keep making strides forward and keep improving. They will be facing some better teams soon enough.

Go Utes!

lol @ CougFaninTX

boise st is ranked. they just beat Creighton on the road, and nearly beat Michigan State on the road. They are a good team.

But of course, trolling wihtout facts is the name of your game.
