51.3% is a great % except for when you factor in the worst preseason schedule
then it is not impressive. Take off 20% points against tougher opponents and
you have it about right.By the way did anyone notice that the very same
team that beat the utes last week scored a whopping 17 points in the entire 1ts
half of their game tonight. So much for the mighty pac. What does that say
about the ute program? Hmmm...... Let the excuses begin
"In last week’s losses at Washington and Washington State, they were a
combined 35-of-97 — including a paltry 3-of-29 from 3-point range."The biggest difference between last week's performance and the team
that is "officially" the 2nd best shooting team in the PAC 12...the Utes weren't playing 200+ RPI cupcakes at home - see 351st
worst (out of 351) OOC SOS in the country.
Spokane,It is really simple. It says that the only game the utes can ever
get up for is the BYU game since that IS their ENTIRE season.
Down underNew flash, THE SEASON IS NOT OVER, NOT EVEN CLOSE! I hope
that's simple enough for you to understand. It must be brutal to get beat
by your rival over and over again, and be reduced to trolling there threads and
take shots at the program you long to be. It must be humiliating to be on the
outside looking in.

Spokane,Shall we look at the last 13 games to see WHO beats up on who.
Yeah, I didn't think so.Please do no think for a second that BYU
would trade places with the utes. That is laughable. Who would want to be the
laughing stock of any conference.Playing in the post-season tourneys
is not outside looking in. You have that reversed.
AZUTE1"and the fact we just as easily
could've/should've won each and every one of our 4 losses to
date"Starting to sound an awful lot like Football.
Gone FishingThen why are you on a Utah thread comparing your team to
the Utes? Why are you always on Utah articles comparing BYU to Utah? Now
that's curious?Most Recent Meeting:Utah 81
FinalBYU 64Ouch; I guess I'd be angry too!@AZUTEThey can't, that's all they have.
Spokane,No, I am not angry and don't use all capital letters to show
my frustration. I am completely content that the Cougars have won 11 of 13 over
the utes and have been to post-season tourneys the last 8 or 9 seasons in a row.
BYU is respected in their conference and are not the laughing stock of the
conference. I live in PAC country and see it. I am on the ute
threads because you, Chris b, ekute, and the like do the exact thing on BYU
articles. Now that is curious.
Better hire another coach from Wyoming.
@fishinAlso, you reference a couple of Utah fans for doing the same.
Look at this thread alone and you will see the usuall Utah Haters out in force.
Is there really any difference between Chris B and Down Under? Personally, I
don't care for the M.O.; but to each his own.
If the Utes fall to USC at home, the season, for all practical purposes, would
@Gone FishinDon't know what happened to origional response but
lets try again. My all CAPS response was intended for Down Under. I'm glad
you are content, as am I. I also live in PAC 12 (and WCC) country. Utah won at U
Dub last year in hoops; I don't recall anyone laughing then. My Oregon alum
and friend certainly didn't laugh when the Ducks narrowly won in SLC a few
weeks ago. I wouldn't consider BYU the laughing stock of the WCC; but they
have been less than impressive; especially this year. That's easy to see;
swept by the Zags last year, and will be again this year. Back to back loses to
lowly Peperdine and LMU to start conference play. Impressive! When
did I go on a BYU thread and do the "exact same thing". You will
generally find my comments regarding BYU on topic and constructive. In the
future, you may want to get your facts straight before making false accusations.
Have a good evening and don't forget to set your drag!
Down underSalt Lake City, UT"51.3% is a great % except for
when you factor in the worst preseason schedule then it is not impressive. Take
off 20% points against tougher opponents and you have it about right."Yet the Utes handled byu as if they were playing Savannah St. As far as Utah "getting up" for byu...your boys should try it some
time. After all, even a home game, magic uniforms, a bye strategically
scheduled before the game KVN hung around for wasn't enough for your boys.
Now, the byu basketball team is "just like football." Say it with me,
Down under...Just Like Football! USC will be a fun game. Get it
MyPerspectiveWhat does Utah's shooting efficiency have to do
with football?It's laughable that Utah fans are forced to
switch the subject to their pathetic football team, because their basketball
team is even more pathetic.BYU will likely be Utah's best win
of the season and Utah will likely be BYU's worst loss of the season - just
like Stanford and Utah in football.Such is the state of the two
Could some of the Utah fans please explain the difference between the PAC-12 and
the prestigious PAC-12?
riddlesif utah basketball and foootball are pathetic, what does that
make byu since you cant seem to beat them? noone cares about what happened last
year or 2years ago. they absolutely WHOOPED you in basketball this year and
tried their best to hand you the football game. if UTAH is pathetic then BYU
is...? LOL. and btw utah hasnt lost any pathetic wcc games this year...
