    I'll take Mookies bait. Good response Magna. If you've ever been to Louisville, visit the Ali museum. If you believe everything in there, there is no man who worked harder than Ali, a rather light heavyweight. Malone is right there with Ali. I'll always defend him. And yes I remember Jordan's steal in'98 two missed free throws in '97, and his departures to LA. (Good chance he would have passed Jabber in the scoring title if he'd stayed in Utah).

    Way to go Wagner! What a great representative of USU and the state of Utah.

    Wookie??? "great workman attitude. Wish it would have rubbed off more on Malone."

    You should get a prize for that bizarre statement. I don't think there are many harder workers than Karl Malone. The man built himself into a two time MVP with a BMI of something like 4% in his late thirties. He literally never stopped working on his body and his game.

    According to Wikipedia, this is what Darrell Griffith said of Eaton's performance: "It was a quadruple-double – points, blocks, rebounds and bricks."

    loved the Eaton days. a mountain of a man with a 2 inch vertical.
    but he did play amazing D and was such a big body and great workman attitude. Wish it would have rubbed off more on Malone.

    (side note) I also liked the days right after Eaton when Seattle and Utah was the heated rivalry that brought out the best of those two teams.

    Oh, the good ole days!

    Bobby is absolutely amazing. Really really miss in Cache Valley.

    Eaton had a few years that he was amazing. He wasn't great at scoring but he'd just clear out and either get an illegal defense call or at least clear the middle for the Stockton/Malone pick and roll. But on defense...wow he was something!

    14 blocks! If Eaton's back had remained healthy a couple more years, the Jazz would have won multiple championships.

    Highly unlikely the Utes are "on the bubble" unless they get to the semi-finals of the PAC 12 tournament. This is after winning all the rest of the regular season, less the Oregon away game.

    Save Collette, the team seems to have lost a degree of confidence and aggression. There's still much to play for. Go Utes!
