The Utes will not finish last in the conference. IF they can right the
assist/turnover ratio, they will do no worse than 6th.Still, not
good enogh.New conference. New coach.
Can't wait for UofU spring football, please get us out of this Basketball
nightmare...Oh, I forgot...the Football team is going to stink pretty bad
too...Dang, why don't they just quit spending my state tax dollars on a bunch of
High School level talent. Better yet, I'll go watch the real college sports @
TDS! GOOOO COUGARS!!!!
Well we really have hit rock bottom haven't we? I mean losses to bottom feeders
of the WCC such as Pepperdine and UC San Diego? What's next up on the schedule a
loss to Portland and then AF? My oh my, if we weren't so bad I'd say to ship off
the players to Westminister, oh wait most of the players already left. Why is it
taking Chris Hill so long to pull the trigger on firing the entire coaching
staff!!! get rid of them, find someone that can build confidence and start us
off fresh. If we're luck we'll finish off around 12 wins, wow a far cry from
days gone past. More and worse of the same next year, 10 win season next year?
We should find a cute name for our basketball team like the football players did
for BSU... say the Utah Skirt Hikers?
CordonBleu | 9:25 p.m. Dec. 26, 2010 Park City, UT "I wonder if
Rose or Morrill would be interested in coaching in a real conference?"I'm sure they'd both rather be coaching for a real team. ===Is that what the U has become, an appendage of the PAC.The U
wasn't even mentioned in the question.See, I think that Tommy would
coach at the U regardless of the conference (If he were interested in leaving
Westminster).I still think the U is a good coach's dream job, who
is out there right now, even if they were still in the MWC.===Rose was offered his dream job at Houston. He stayed at BYU.

Wiley Old SchoolYou're confused; the conferences are all real; the
only thing that isn't real is clueless fans who think that changing conferences
will somehow make the Utes special again.
I say let the coach do his thing until his contract runs out. Things will be
Chin up, Utah, you aren't as bad as 1996-97 BYU, 1-25 on the season (thanks Utah
State for letting us have one victory).
If Boylen is gone after this year, I wonder if Rose (post-Fredette) or Morrill
would be interested in coaching in a real conference?
no one that could do anything listened to us when we asked for boylen's
replacement last spring. how bad does it have to get to make someone listen?
Is it possible that the Utes don´t finish last in the conference? This
could be the best year in basketball for the MWC, and how ironic it is that the
second most well known team in the conference is struggling so bad. UNLV is back and having a great year. BYU has Fredette,SDSU is
playing fantastic, and UNM is also doing very well.
Two programs heading in opposite directions:Utah lost to San
Diego(3-10) 64-67, the worst team in BYU's new conference next year.BYU beat Arizona(11-2) 87-65, the best team in Utah's new conference next
The Bottom Line...a loss to Portland before conference play is likely then 5 and
11 or 6 and 10 in conference with an out in the 1st round the MWC conference
leaves a record of either 12-19 or 13 and 18. My guess is this team mails it in
once after 3 weeks of conference play. 20 losses is not off the table. The 7
wins have been against very poor teams.
This is just sick. Jim Boylen must go. He is taking the program backward, not
forward. In his fourth year, the team is worse than in his first. This is not
The way things are going, the Utes may set several new records this year.
Unfortunately, all records for futility. When does spring football start?
correction:San Diego's previous two wins. I got a little type happy
Utah losing to the 300th(give or take) best team in the nation on Christmas day:
Priceless.San Diego's previous 2 losses were against D-II teams, so
terrible in fact that ESPN does not even track their programs. How
bad is the WCC again Utes?
