From a fully invested BYU fan, I must say I strangely am happy that the
Ute's b-ball program seems to be on its way back up. Maybe it is partly due
to the diminishing of the football rivalry, and how I would like the basketball
teams to be out-of-conference rivals and for this to be possible, the Utes will
need to not be horrible. Keep up the improvement, Utes. Maybe next year I will
be able to not be embarrassed if the Cougars almost lose to you again.
It's frustrating to see the close losses but the last two in particular are
also very encouraging. This team just needs its offense to come around and good
things will start happening. Perhaps the improving health of Dotson and Martin
will end up helping.I know one thing ... if Washburn continues to play
like he did the last two games, Utah will win a lot more conference games than
anyone first thought they would.
I hadn't been to any games for the past few years. I took my kids to the
game against Boise State and am now looking to get tickets again. I used to do
attend most of the games but stopped going due to poor product. I believe Coach
K has this team back to where they won't be blown out by anyone due to
great defense. I'm impressed with Washburn's confidence and Jordan is
playing very well for an 18 year old kid. Our guard play is getting better. I
would be happy with a 16 win season this year. Excited for the future. Excited
for the UCLA game on Thursday.
"Utes consistently making things close this season"Congratulations?@pac12fanThanks for confirming what we
all already knew about utah "fans". That your screen name is
"pac12fan" rather than 'utahfan' or some such thing just makes
this all the funnier.LOL!
Sounds like Duckhunter's jealous he doesn't have a conference to root
for and be proud of.
motorbikeSounds like Utah fans are jealous that they have to live in
the reflected light of conference mates, rather than producing their own
accomplishments - cannon fodder for the big boys of the conference to pad their
The Utes have made great strides so far this season. I hope they can continue
to progress and hopefully the ball will bounce the right way and we can win one
of these close games.I agree with Motorbike, if Washburn can
continue his high level of play and we can get a few others to get involved in
the mix, the Utes can be a better team than most thought. Hopefully
they can get a couple wins this week and get some much needed confidence to get
over the hump.As for the typical comments from byu "fans"
that is what we expect from a group that is so obsessed with all things Utah.
It's tough when there isn't much to be excited about with your own
team I guess.Go Utes!
Qwest PerfectedTypical response from the hilltoppers. In the absence
of a legitimate rebuttal, attack the messenger.Utah is indeed
"improved" this season; but, improving from truly bad to meerly mediocre
isn't much to beat your chest about.As far as BYU fans not
being excited about their own team. BYU has been down a little this year, but
the team is starting to show some improvement with the development of players
not named Haws and Davies, and the Cougars still have a very legitimate chance
of playing in the NCAA tourney for the 7th straight year.
Dear Duckhunter:One would ask why you troll our boards so
frequently? Are you insecure? Angry at life? Inadequate in some manly way?
Family issues? The list could go on and on and on. Suffice to say, your
continual contention is boardering absurdity. You intentionally come on to Ute
articles and spew your contentious behavior. Why?
