Vegas is beautiful. I'll be here as long as we keep winning. And I'm planning on what coach K is planning on. Lets do this Utes. If Loveridge can hit his shots I like our chances.

Vegas is beautiful for most people but it may turn ugly after the Washington game when U have to face Arizona. I see a beat down coming.

SF dons are a way harder team to win than UW.

I agree Ernie.

SF would win the PAC 12.

How many Las Vegas/PAC 12 tournament championships does Utah's Coach K have?

I like our chances to win all our teams.

Coach K. will have another pac10 championship again for us.

We will go far dancing because we are prestegous.

Go Utes!

Win or lose, I'm incredibly proud of my team this season. Coach Kryst has brought the excitement back to the hill and it is palpable. This is a program on the rise and anyone who can't see that is crazy. Go out and stomp those Huskies today! You are totally capable of winning this whole thing and growing another notch as a result! Utah by 5!

Loveridge and Wright both need to play well today to get this win.

Let's go Utes! Time to make some noise.

As many as Coach R's Las Vegas/wcc tournament championships.

I am leaving to go to St. George this afternoon for a baseball tourney in the morning.

Dilemma: Leave now and head to Vegas to watch my Utes or simply watch it on my Ipad.

My Utes will win tonight but then have to face U of A. I know we've played them well twice but if we win tonight, they are rested and are a deep team that is suited for tournament play.

Please BYU fans, don't insult anyone's intelligence by stating WCC is on the same scale of Pac 12. There will be 6-7 teams from the Pac 12 that make it in the tourney and the rest will be in the NIT.

So.... Leave now or Ipad?

PAC12 Fan - You'll have to fly down if you want to make the game this afternoon. The Utes play at 1:00 pm mountain time.

You don't win a team, you beat a team.

Are you referring to 2 Big Sky Tournament Championships he won with Montana back in 2004 and 2005? I cant figure out why you would use this to brag about your coach. Congrats though on your coach's 2 tournament championships 10 years ago in the Big Sky. Thats something to be proud of.

LOL at your cherry-picked stat.

Rose was recently inducted into the Dixie State Hall of Fame. As Dixie State's head coach from 1990-97, Rose compiled a 167-57 record while guiding six of his seven teams to top-20 rankings, including a national ranking as high as No. 2. He earned three conference titles and was honored by his peers as the 1993 Scenic West Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. Sticking with records at their current schools, however:

Rose - 232-76 (75.3%), FOUR conference titles; NINE straight 20+ win seasons, including back-to-back 30+ win seasons; SIX, going on SEVEN NCAA tournaments; never finished lower than 3rd in the conference; 12-4 vs Utah

coach k - 41-53 (43.6%), ZERO conference titles; ONE 20+ win season; TWO losing seasons; ZERO NCAA tournaments; never finished higher than 8th in the conference; 1-2 vs BYU

Thanks for playing!

Of all the teams in the PAC-12, only Utah has fans that brag more about the league than their own team (i.e. using PAC12 in their moniker)

"There will be 6-7 teams from the Pac 12 that make it in the tourney..."

Yes, and none of them will be Utah.

"...and the rest will be in the NIT."

Really? You think the NIT is going to take USC? I don't think so.

My guess is that Coach K is going to head to the professional ranks after his great job at the U.
Who knows he may head to the Jazz.
He left the head coach position at Montana to be an assistant in the NBA. I think he wants in the pros.

Utah fans are forced to brag about their conference, because the Utes have done absolutely nothing themselves since joining the conference.
