@alternateIn a scenario like you just described, I would think Utah
would be favored to win.
Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus! The Utes just received a huge gift. USC
sitting down Dedmon is like Utah stitting down Washburn. Utah should easily
move on to play California.And Yes Chris, Utah does have a 5% chance
of making the tournament. But I believe you are incorrect in saying that the
Utes have a better chance than Utah State. But then again, I believe you
comment was more intended to irritate than actually be a statement of fact.I think it is great that Utah will get to the 2nd round against
California. But, beginning Thursday night, the prospects of Cal, probably
Oregon and most likely UCLA are flat out scarey.But, if Utah could
take down Cal, and get to 15-17, or better, even if they were knocked out of the
PAC12 tourney, they may get some consideration from the other tournaments.How about a Utah/BYU first round NIT matchup? Chris B would like that
and he would even guarantee the winner!
Go Runnin' Utes! It's fun to get excited again for our basketball
team. It's always been great to be a Ute fan, and the future holds much
promise. Go Utes!
"USC has Utah's full attention."Of course they do.
Let's be honest, I don't think this Utah team was ever in danger of
overlooking ANY opponents, including the borderline-high-school teams we played
in the pre season. We have shown we are capable of playing great games, just not
consistently. I'd be happy with a win today, and VERY happy if
we could surprise someone in the second round. Beyond that, I'll leave the
predictions up to Chris B. Either way, this is going to be a fun weekend in
Chris B - Let me get this straight. You're saying that Utah has
a better chance of getting to the dance (winning their tourney as a 10-seed)
than USU (5-seed in a fairly weak WAC) or Weber (2-seed in the Big Sky).The only team Utah has more of a chance of making the dance when
compared with other in-state teams is BYU because they obviously aren't
making it this year.Normally I enjoy how you cheer on the Utes, but
if you're going to make predictions and have people think they're
credible, lay off the red kool-aid a little.
We are going to wreck them. I'll say this, I like Utah's
chances of making the big dance better than anyone else in the state!Even if its a 5% chance, right now that seems pretty good.Go
Utes!Utah 72usc 58Mark it down@Go
Utes! - agreed, not a lot of work will get done the next several weeks while
games are on. The beauty of two screens
Cant wait for the games today! it might be a very unproductive day at work!
Good Luck...When preparation meets opportunity and slaps it upside the
head. Looks like Utah is a slap away from some first round good luck.
Everything is coming together at the right time. Seize the moment.
