Chris B you once again prove my point that you have no idea what you are talking about. Loveridge to the NBA? With all the new signings he will be lucky to get off our bench. Going from way down our bench to an NBA bench is going take more talent and heart then he has. I stand by my earlier post that if these new guys can't beat out Loveridge we shouldn't be pounding our chests about any of them.

@Krispy Zadoosh - Spot on, and hilarious.

I'm wondering if I'm the only 50 year old who is:

A proud member the men's Olympic relay team.
A proud member of the Denver Bronco's.
And a proud member of the Texas Rangers.

Ekute, your "membership" hasn't been troubling at all. I fact, according to your definition, I too am a PAC 12 member. But my "membership" seems to have included post season play and not vying for the worst record in the conference. There must be different types of membership. Yours would be the equivalent of Vanderbilt in the SEC. So my membership is actually glad that your membership continues to support the conference long after your membership has been eliminated from bowl games and post season tournaments. We will continue to proudly represent the conference and you can continue to compare yourself to non-conference teams and MWC teams if it makes you feel better, and my membership will be grateful for the easy wins each season when we play your membership.

This addition to the Ute roster certainly gives Utah some much needed depth and will be very interesting to see what Coach K will be able to do with his talent. This is one Utah fan who is very excited about the future prospects for Utah basketball!

CougFaninTX,
If you're a member of the Denver Broncos I'm definitely one of your fans and I'm proud of our membership in the AFC West.
Has a cougar fan ever said "We're happy with our independence in football and proud of our membership in the wcc."?

I like the fact that we have a coach that can palm the ball. (nice pic). Coach K will work wonders with this kid.

Recruiting continues to be the name of the game. Utah appears to be doing very well in that regard.

As for foreign players, especially with some many doing it in the Pacific Conference, why doenst BYU make a better effort in these other countries?

With the way college sports are going, BYU might end up on the outside looking in.

Help me with my physical geography. Do the the states you mentioned have mountains even remotely similar to our own Wasatch range? (Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New England)

Great questions. Answers: 1) byu-provo's recruiting reach doesn't extend beyond Timpview High School, 2) byu-provo isn't in the Pacific Conference; and 3) byu-provo is already on the outside looking in.

Osgrath.. In your trips to Austria, did anyone tell you that you can either write the umlaut over the o, or you can write it as oe, as in Poeltl, so I guess it can be both. I don't think Loveridge will be in the NBA. I just hope he can make one game winner next year. He missed a bunch this year.

William Wallace, I think he meant that it could either be Pöltl or Poeltl, but not Pöeltl.

With the recruiting class now finalized, the only question remaining the rest of the offseason is who, of 10 projected returning scholarship players and 4 new signees, will be the odd man out of the 13 scholarship spots.

Are you sure he knows that he was recruited for basketball and not the ski team?
