@ jarka-rusThe overall quality of the PAC is excellent. Not many
highly ranked teams, but there is a reason the PAC-12 is concidered one of the
three best conferences in the country....
CB"BYU fans are flocking to news about ute basketball, since we
are the only team alive for at large berth in the big dance."A
team with a 100+ RPI, which is where the Utes will finish, has absolutely NO
CHANCE for an at-large NCAA invite.
Byu fans are flocking to news about ute basketball, since we are the only team
alive for at large berth in the big dance. Some projections already
have Utah in Number that show byu in after latest loss:Zero!
Chris BEpsn just showed Arizonas remaining schedule and percent
chance of winning each gameTheir lowest of the rest of the
season?48% at Utah. Espn says Utah is favored to beat
Arizona I'd over-look UCLA too, since it's a road game
against someone that isn't in last place. Also, the only way you're
beating Arizona is because their main guy is injured. That's how ASU won
last night plain and simple. Arizona isn't the team they were before the
You're a class act bigsamoan. Fans from both sides of the aisle could
learn from you.
@Chris B or SEC fan I can'tThe Pac is weak as evidenced by so called
ranked teams losing and dropping out of the rankings like a rock i.e. Colo.
Oregon. Zona is an average team, they'll be out of the top ten soon. But
keep spinning that big boy conference mumbo jumbo. Gonzaga could easily compete
and beat any Pac team as could any top 3 WCC team
Zona just lost again, the Pac is weak. nuff said
The Utes got a huge injection of badly needed confidence to win on the road
after their last victory at USC. That monkey is now off their back so I'm
sure the Bruins are in for a battle! Despite their much maligned start of season
OOC schedule, I think these Utes are quite good...really good! And they maybe
peaking at the right time. Good luck at the Bruins house, Utes!
Likewise to my Cougs and the Aggies!
It won't be easy, but a win in West Wood would be HUGE.Go Utes!

Espn says Utah is favored to beat Arizona I love this
team and our PAC 12 membership!
Considering byu fans said we had a 0 percent chance of beating ucla a few weeks,
lets just say I like our chances!Some brackets show Utah in the
dance already. Win tomorrow and we will be in the projections from
just about everyone.
The Utes will have to play at a level they haven't reached yet this season
to beat UCLA, but I wouldn't count it out.Winning on the road
in the PAC is not easy, obviously, but once a young team gets a taste of having
all the elements lined up against them, and they still prevail, there's a
mental step up that has been accomplished, a confidence that with the right
focus and effort, there's no reason why you can't win games on the
road. The difference between road success in the NBA and in college
is significant, and it boils down to experience, which this Utah team is quickly
racking up. I'm not expecting a win, but I'm definitely expecting
this team to have a reasonable shot at victory, in the 2nd half.Man,
it's fun watching a team rise above their collective skills and experiences
to become something greater than the sum of their individual skills. Credit to
Coach K and staff, and to the players, for buying in and having faith in the
system, and in each other.
