indycrimNice idea but your suggestion wouldn't make any
Cougfanintexas...One way the Utes could "turn it around" is to
join the WCC in basketball and go Indy in football? Or join the Big Sky in
football? Lowering the competition sometimes makes a bad team optically
better...Do you like that idea?
cougfan first of all baseball hasn't even started. 2nd we beat BYU in
football and we finished 9th place not 2nd to last. Third you've been
talking crap on the Utes all season and nothing you said has been accurate. I
remember you telling everybody that the Utes were lucky to win 5-6 games the
whole season and they did that the first 8 games of the season. Sure things
aren't looking the best but if this team could finish games strong you
could be looking at a 16-3 5-2 but they can't and there record has suffered
for it. There 0-7 in games that have came down to the last 30 seconds. So in
all please be accurate with your statements.Go Utes
SoonerUte"Down by 6 with a minute to go, you do not have time to
do the usual get a shot off in 30 seconds. Be thinking "get it off in 10
seconds"."When that's the offense that's been
drilled into you every single practice, trying to adjust at crunch time is
difficult to impossible.Utah's slow-down offense is a "live
by the sword, die by the sword" kind of thing. It helps keep the other team
from scoring, by reducing possessions, but it also makes it difficult for Utah
to mount a comeback when the Utes get down...plus it's boring
as... well you know.Utah should stop marketing "Runnin'
Utes" if this is the kind of offense k is going to stick with, because
it's false advertising. There's absolutely no "run" in
I thought maybe the Utes had turned the corner in the Washington game, but I
guess not. It's still looking like an 11 or 12 win season and an 11th or
12th place finish.Last place in baseball, 2nd to last in football,
and one of the bottom teams in basketball. Hopefully, U can figure out how to
get this turned around.
I don't think playing Stanford Sunday is going to change any result. As
good as the Huntsman Center is for watching a game, why Sunday? Not coming this
15 turnovers in the first half. No wonder. It was like Boylen Ball... lazy
lazy passes, crazy cross court passes, and I bet I can sneak this ball through 6
defender hands passes. All easily intercepted and returned for scores.Coach K locked that down in the 2nd half (only 2 turnovers). Utes need some
work on end-of-game strategy. The arena announcer says "one minute
remaining" and its as if the team hears "ten minutes". Down by 6
with a minute to go, you do not have time to do the usual get a shot off in 30
seconds. Be thinking "get it off in 10 seconds".
Disappointing game. This team is so much more skilled then they were a year or
even two years ago but they just can't seem to find any consistency from
game to game. 15 turnovers in the first half is inexcusable and made it
impossible to stay in the game. I'm not sure how many possessions they had
in the first half but that had to be close to half of them when they were just
throwing the ball away. That needs to be fixed if they want to take the next
step. Hopefully Sunday yields a better result.Go Utes!!!
The first article I've seen this season without a Jason Washburn comment.
And he lead the team in scoring. Connection?
It's getting old! Digressing is an ugly thing...
Take care of the ball.
