I postd ths in another blog but this is one of the weirdest explanations for a
kid getting the boot that I have ever heard. And make no mistake he has been
given the boot, at least temporarily. I've never, ever, heard of anyone
"taking a break" in mid season that wasn't injured. I wonder of he
is just going to be another in the long line of players that have bailed from
this program over the last few years for whatever reason. This certainly is not
indicative of an improving program.
Duckhunter,Dallin's "break" was official previous to
the Stanford game yet he was still on the bench in street clothes. If he had
been booted from the team he wouldn't have been there at all. Look no
further than Jiggy Watkins as your example.That said, perhaps he
won't be back next year whether by his choice or Coach Krystowiak's,
time will tell. I'll say this, Coach is obviously running a
tight ship and it probably won't be for everyone. There are many coaches
this day and age that would shy away from some of the problems and controversy
he's had to deal with up to this point. Having spent a year observing
Majerus, I'm glad to see Coach taking the tougher road and sticking to his
guns on building his team the right way and with the right mindset. It may make
the climb harder, which certainly isn't what Utah fans want, but it will be
far more worth it in the end.I wish Dallin all the best and hope he
can get back on the court for the Utes whether this season or next.
He looked really good early in the year but he has gotten steadily worse every
game, he must have something happening away from the court for his game to nose
dive so severely.
I understood last week that he is still on the team but needed some time to take
care of some other issues he is dealing with currently. It sounds like he may
still be playing for Utah. Playing college sports takes up more than half your
time. If you can't hack it, you have to move on.
I wish Dallin the best in dealing with whatever issues he is dealing with and I
hope we see him back on the floor before too long.
We need to weed out these type of players. We need players that are committed
to the program as much as Ducky.
Something doesn't smell right on the hill. Hope this isn't the
beginning of another mass exodus.
Good luck Dallin. Hope to see you back in a basketball uniform, where ever that
is. Glad to see that the coach took the time to meet with him personally and
help this young man. Basketball is not the only thing in the world.
We dont need him. We want players capable of making sweet 16 runs and he didnt
have the heart to be one of those players. Move along
@chrissy b - I think U need to worry about moving out of last place in the PAC
before U start worrying about a sweet 16 run.
Dallin, consider a transfer to BYU and you won't have to play on Sundays.
Of course the story wouldn't be complete without Duckhunter and Chris B
both doing what they do best: flat-out lying and making unrealistic predictions,
respectively. Dallin is still very much a part of the team, despite not being on
the court. Whether he continues his career at Utah or not will only tell with
time, sometimes people just need a fresh start in new surroundings. It'd be
great to see him reach his athletic potential for the Utes because he's a
very athletic and talented guy, but I'd be happy to see him work his issues
out and be successful whether he's in Salt Lake City or somewhere else.
Wow, the annual mass exodus from that train wreck on the hill has begun even
earlier than usual.With starters DuBois, Washburn, and Martin, and
practically never used Osterloh also set to depart as soon as the first game of
the PAC 12 tourney is over, it looks like another "rebuilding" year for
Utah next season.I really can't blame Dallin for losing
interest in one of the most excruciatingly boring offenses in the country -
226th in scoring.Good luck Dallin, wherever you go.
After reading this article both her and at the Trib I wanted to see what people
were saying. After reading through all the comments from both the sites I am
ver suprised and fankly a little disgusted by what I have seen from Ute and
Cougar fan alike. It's safe to say that not a single person who has
commented knows what was discussed between Coach Krykowiak and Dallin Bachynski.
All the info we have was a quote from Coach K. "After meeting with Dallin,
he and I agreed it was in the best interest of both parties for him to step away
from basketball for the time being," and "He will remain a part of the
program during this time as he takes a break from active competition."
College is a very challenging and stressful without being a student athlete as
well. A little more class and respect from both sides would go a long way.
@utes22That's all well and good but it is still weird, none of
us has ever seen anything like it before, and these are comment boards. Perhaps he is getting bad grades? Perhaps he is depressed? Perhaps he
doesn't want to play anymore? Perhaps he has an injury? Perhaps krystkowiak
doesn't want him on the team? Perhaps his teammates don't like him?
Perhaps his teammates and coaches lack confidence in him? Who knows? They
didn't tell us. krystkowiak made one very strange and cryptic
statement that did nothing but add to the overall weirdness of the entire thing.
Lacking any other info there is nothing left but speculation and seeing as
though this entire thing is extremely weird, and the utah season is a disaster,
it certainly leads to some questions.Perhaps krystokowiak is already
cleaning house but trying to make it appear as if he isn't? They ought to
make some sort of statement about it if they don't want people speculating
about it. Regardless it is just another strange occurence from a program that
has had many strange occurences over the last decade.
Me thinks the train wreck is off the track, and is carrying Nitro. This could be
the explosion that ruins the Utes for the foreseeable future. Jiggle the Nitro
and we will see not only another mass exodus but the u will not be able to get
anyone to commit, let alone make a visit to Nitro U. I don't know about
you, but I'm headed to WallyWorld to pick me up some earplugs. It really must be terrible being a doormat in football and can't even
field a full team in Bball for a full year without some players
"Runn'n" for the exit. Maybe u could try college curling or
fencing....then you could end up in the middle of the PAC 10.2 if you count the
teams that don't field teams.
Anyone other than me just itching to find out who Duck coaches? I can't
think of any form of human life that could benefit from this draconian method of
