Congratulations to the Utes. They certainly are peaking at the right time. I
still don't believe they can win the tournament, but anything is
possible.I do have to question the "Utes are the best team in
the state" comments, though. Go back to football season. Both Utah State
and BYU had better overall seasons than Utah. Yes, Utah beat BYU, but BYU went
to a Bowl game, had a great defense, and finished the season strong. But Ute
fans quickly bash the idea that BYU was the better team over the whole football
season.Yet Utah can have the better basketball team, despite losing
the BYU head-to-head? Quite the contradiction, wouldn't you say?
@fireonthemtnThat's Right, We're Truckin'!Even
with his praise for the Utes, Bill Walton is annoying. I couldn't stand him
when he was calling NBA games. He sure could play though.Keep
calling them Chris, it seems to be working.Go Utes!
I've seen Utah basketball on the eve of winning a NCAA tournament and now
on the eve of a Pac 12 semi championship. It's been a long ride, but this
team has so much to be proud of. The road this team has travelled? Remember it
for the rest of your lives guys. You have done your school proud! You won't
JD deserves his number in the Utah rafters. If not as a player as a person!!!!!
Go Ute great job...The future looks bright!
Best trip to Vegas I've ever made. Here's to a Sunday return instead
Maybe, just maybe. Good luck Utes keep it going.
As Bill Walton and Jerry would say, "Lately it appears to me...what a long ,
strange trip it"s been... " Utes! Pass me the Cherry Garcia, bro....
Unbelievable! Keep it up, Utes!
So proud of this team. No matter what happens--(and I truly believe they can win
this tourney)--I am behind this terrific coach and his staff 100%. What a ride.
I know we will lose strong senior leadership and there might be tough times
still, but what a foundation he has built in the wake of a gutting of the
program. He has a corps of freshmen with a ton of experience already and they
will be tougher than nails over the next few years. Keep it going Utes!
You're the hottest team in this tourney and you have every right to go out
and take it all!!!
What a game! In the second half it seemed like Cal was starting to impose their
will on the Utes. But they did not give up. They kept fighting and got back in
it. THIS is progress. Progress is what we wanted from Coach Boyeln that he
just wasn't able accomplish. Congratulations team. One more
game tomorrow. Go Utes!
I think we can safely say Utah is now the best team in the state!
@PAC12 loves UThey are probably on the BYU articles commenting and
following their own team. Probably didn't really care how the Utes did. The end of season win against #19 was the turning point for the program.
Congrats to coach Krystko on turning the ship around.
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!The best part of this win is that they
will now play the winner of Oregon/Washington both of whom the Utes beat.Congrats to the Utes! What a fantastic comeback win.
Now we're havin' fun!
If you're going to peak...Why not now?Go Utes!
So happy for these guys. Hard work is paying off. The team is getting some
great coverage on PAC 12 network. Bill Walton keeps heaping praise on this
team. Well done!
As much as I hate to admit it. Utah is the best team in the state right now,
however they will have no postseason, unless they win this tourney, which will
not happen. UCLA is in the way. Unfortunately the NIT does not take teams with
losing records, because the Utes are playing well enough right now to go very
far in that tourney. However there is always that chance that they can pull
another two out of the hat, but it is going to be tough.
To GoCougars......obviously not enough!
Oh Chris... A game that you 'almost' got right! 79-69 is pretty darn
close to 70-65... Who cares that BYU is done with anything other than the NIT if
they are unlucky enough to get an invite... They proved all year that without
Jimmer they ain't squat! It was a gradual fall but it seems near
complete... As complete as any good natured fan wants to see. Don't let
this current run of success enlarge your heads too big... Get to the sweet 16
and beyond before getting too cocky! And then with that cockiness anything less
than beating the #1 Gonzaga squad (little ole WCC team) will be ultimately
failure supreme! :)
Pac-12 semifinals here we come! Where are all the BYU naysayers now? Great win Utes!
What a great win for the Utes. They have really come together at the end of the
year, and they're playing great basketball. Credit the coaches and players
for hanging in there. What a classy answer Coach Krystkowiak had regarding
beating Montgomery. Talked about the team and not beating his former coach. I
gained a lot of respect for him in that one moment. Congrats Coach and the
Utes. Two more wins and the Utes are dancin'!!! This is the greatest time
of year for a hoops fan. Huge shot from Dubois, and how bout the last 10
minutes for Loveridge.
How many games did we win in the amazing wcc conference tournament of
Well, I couldn't be prouder of my Utes! Does anyone want to question the
improvement this team has made.? The future looks bright with Coach Krisko.
Utah Rocks!The Utes continue on!When do the Cougs play
They did it!! Fantastic win... looked so easy in the OT after the tough-tough 3
by dubois to tie it up. Yes, we believe now! :) Congrats to the team and
coaches... Just 2 more!
Cool. Utah won in overtime. Are they peaking or what!
Utah had problems all year finishing games. We have finally figured out how to
play down the stretch. Even though Bill Walton’s commentary is better
enjoyed on mute, I had to agree that Utah played spectacular down the
I told you I told you I told you!Two more games and we are dancing!
Dubois is awesome. Overtime!
We did it!!!
Get this done!Started the season slow, but have become best team in
state at end of season.Let's go utes! Finish the job. My
nerves are killing me.
So far, so good. The worst part of the game so far has been
listening to Bill "I'm talking and I can't stop" Walton.
About to pick up the sixth best RPI win of anyone in the stateWe
already own the best FIVE rpi wins. Can you see us dancing next week? The team
in close to making that realityBest team RIGHT NOW in the state.
Conference player of the year about to have an early exit!2.5 games
