    The worst hire I believe was Ray Giac. Despite his passion, I believe Boylen to be mis-guided as to the brand of basketball Utah is capable of and/or Utah Fans wish to see. Contrary to the nickname, it has little to do with "Runnin". As for a new hire, my vote (not that anyone is asking) is for Tommy Conner. However, I do not believe Dr. Hill is in a position to do much of anything factoring in for the loss of revenue the University must endure as it transitions into the PAC 12. In the meantime, let us all relish in our new found identity - FOOTBALL and member of the new PAC!!

    How many fans showed up, 12? Boylen has destroyed Utah basketball, he is the worst hire in the history of University of Utah athletics. The only good thing about the season about to start is we are getting close to only 4 more months until Boylen is fired and we can hire a REAL coach. FIRE BOYLEN!!!!

    I was able to attend last night and I can say with full confidence that Clyburn and Jay Watkins will be a handfull in the open court. They are both active on the defensive side and love to run. We have a true point gaurd and that should help this year. JJ Obrian has great size for a Freshman and will likely play some big minutes at the 3 and 4 position.

    Glover seems to have made the biggest improvement as far as returning players and we will be glad Boylen was able to get Hines to stay.

    Tavita did not show me much other than he has increased his size and seems to be improving on his shooting. It remains to be seen if this will be the case in games, but a few more makes would be a huge improvement. I am not sure he will play much this year which could be a good thing.

    Overall I agree with Boylen's statement that they will have more depth if Foster and Watkins get back on the court. They also seem to communicate well on the floor which makes sense since the virus Brown is now at CU.

    A couple of those guys look really athletic and all but can they come together as a team? Big ?

    I for one will be watching closely and of course cheering until I can't talk.

    Let me just say this though...No more 3 balls heaved because the shot clock is expiring and I want to see an inbounds play work as it is planned and coached (hopefully)! Is that too much to ask?

    Let's Go Utes!

    Do something this year. A spoiled crowd won't simply show up. Win and they will come!

    Looking forward to this group coming together quickly. I've heard a lot about their talent, I just hope they can gel quickly.

    As always, a Boylen believer an proud of it.

    Go Utes
