I miss Jerry Pimm. Those were heady days for Ute basketball and for basketball in the state of Utah. The Ute BYU matchups were classic and I was never prouder to be a Ute fan (up till that point) as the day I was downtown and walked by the Banks scrolling news sign and read Utes 19th in the nation in AP poll.

I believe that will happen again and soon with Larry Krystowiak as coach.

With chris hill as a.d. you will never see another jerry pimm at utah. His track record for hiring basketball coaches tells us that.

Comic relief in a tough season.

It would be impressive if you knew as much about Utah as you think you do. I'm not sure why you're so obsessed with everything about the Utes but it is flattering.

I do question your knowledge a bit since it was Dr Hill that brought Rick Majerus to the Utes.

It's good to see coach Pimm back up at the U. He was great coach and always had competitive teams. I happy to hear he still follows the Utes.

I also agree with his thought about coach K and this team. They haven't given up and they will be much improved within a few years.

Go Utes.

I'm sure I know every bit as much as you do. You don't have to be a fan to read the paper, watch the news, etc.

I'm fully aware hill hired majerus, I'm also fully aware he hired giacoletti, boylen, and krystkowiak. Sounds like he is hitting about .250 and even majerus was no slam dunk as the current state of the abysmal utah basketball program began under majerus's utah career ending incompetence. If you ask hill majerus might be the hire he regrets the most.

As far as "obsessed" is concerned, well, your screen name says it all.

LOL!

I believe you are premature in your dissmissal of our Coach Krysko. Granted the previous two were a "swing and a miss". So doesn't that put the good Dr Hill at .500? Regardless, Dr. Hill's record of accomplishments, as the AD of the States' Universiy, far surpasses anyone else in the fine State of UTAH. BTW, is it true that you are the top contributor to Utah based articles? Quite an accomplishment - congratulations. You are the only reason I really don't mind when some misguided UTAH fan trolls all over a TDS article. well , you and a couple others possibly. Anyway, keep it up, enjoy the Utes and the comeback that is building. mark it down

I think you have defined your obsession with the Utes by the sheer number of posts you make on every Utah article.

That is something that all Utah fans can laugh at.

Oh and I'm sure Hill regrets hiring Majerus and all the conference championships and NCAA tournament wins probably as much as byu regrets hiring LaVell Edwards. Possibly one of the weakest comments you have ever made.
