Going .500 in the Pac 12, the second best league in the country and a league that had 25% of its team go to the sweet 16(and 6 to the dance) was great progress.

Coach K has worked his magic as we had all hoped, just as we hoped Boylen would do. A lot of promise for this team, several NBA caliber guys already on the team and still Brekkot and some other studs to join the program in the future.

Onward and upward


The future really does look bright with Utah's returning starter, returning key reserves, and two outstanding 4-start recruits. Brekkott Chapman was offered scholarships at PAC 12 champion Arizona as well as Arizona State and BYU.

Next year's our year! Go Utes!!


Several NBA caliber guys on the roster? I can think of one and possibly two. Hopefully Chapman can keep out of trouble and produce on the court.

"It's pretty astounding that the Utes don't have a player coming back who had an interception in 2013." -- Ted Miller, ESPN
Considering the Utes only had 3 interceptions all year, that is not astounding.

If the Utes had their usual numbers for a Whittingham defense (19 during their first PAC12 year), we'd have more players back with "interception experience". Still, kind of an odd stat for Miller to focus on. I'm more worried about the high number of interceptions our QBs had in PAC12 play.

The Utes will once again be left on the outside looking in at the Big Dance if they don't dramatically improve their pre-season schedule.

They need a lot more Kansas's and BYU's, and a lot fewer Evergreen State's, if the Utes are going to have any hope of getting an at-large bid.
