    the Utes will win the tournament and at least one game in the Big Dance. Best of the MWC teams. Hmmm... on second thought, UNM might win two.

    predicting that Utah has any chance at all of winning the MWC tournament.

    The Utes could easily be swept the last 5 games of their season.

    I think the madness has already hit you if you think the lowly utes have any chance of winning the MWC. This team is really bad. As for the one and done, it's beat sitting at home the first weekend of the big dance and utah will do this year and for a long time to come.

    I still think the Utes are peaking right at the right time and even though they've been terribly inconsistent, I wouldnt be surprised if we win the mwc tournament and give someone a game in the tournament.

    TDS - dont book your march madness hotels past Thursday. And stop with the talk about getting a #4 seed. You'll still lose at least 2 more, get another #9 seed, and well.... you know the rest is history. One and Done

    Stop with the condescending name calling and hyperbole. You act just like the juvenile Utah fans who spam every BYU article.

    Grow up already.


    I do agree with the article. Air Force is playing alot better, and for Utah, the Falcons are a dangerous team.

    Utah has been so erratic this year that the Utes are capable of winning by double-digits or losing by double-digits even in the Huntsman Center.

    Wow this article is one huge excuse fest for utah to lay the groundwork for their post-game interviews if they lose to AFA, which is sounding like a very real possibility since AFA is playing a little better and the utes are still the utes.

  • "Dangerous Opponent"

    Anybody the uties play is a dangerous opponent. There are several AAU teams in Utah alone that would trounce this utie team. Stating that the AF is a "dangerous opponent" like the uties are actually something themselves. LOL!!!

  • Like the rebounding!

    Enjoyed watching San Diego State trying to keep Watkins and Tillie off the offensive boards. I thought the game was the best rebounding game that Utah has played this year. To stay on the boards with such a good rebounding team as SDS shows well for Utah and their coming games. You can have the 3 point stuff- I enjoy watching the banging inside. I'm not blind enough to think Utah will win the tournament but I really enjoy a team that is physical enough to play well in the paint. When Tillie planted Thomas those three or four times and Watkins got in the face of everybody I was very impressed. You know Carlon and Luca don't know how to back down to anyone. If Utah can turn the Y game and the tournament into a football type game I think Utah will be very competetive and fun to watch. Tillie can't block shots like Foster or play the offensive game that Washburn can play- but boy can he rebound!!!!!!!!I love watching him and Watkins together. Good luck at Air Force and get NASTY- esp. for BYU.
