    Boylen is out at Utah, lets hope the same happens to Roger Reid at SUU.

    Lets see a bit more about Stew. You put it right there. He is the best, most winning coach we have in the state. The Aggie program is one the state can be proud of. Here is to hoping they have a great run at the WAC tourney and get to play for a few more weeks.

    Mike --

    Thanks for your article in the D-News this morning about Utah coaches. I wanted to bring to your attention a coach that you forgot to mention. Although I understand you may be emphasizing D-1 coaches, Tommy Connor still should be mentioned in this list. After all, he started the Westminster program from scratch 12 years ago and has had great success, not mention he played at Utah and coached with Majerus for seven seasons. In the last 10 years Connor's teams have compiled nine 20-win seasons, 8 conference championships, and 9 trips to the 32-team NAIA national tournament. He has amassed a career record of 264-114 despite having only 2 scholarships to give (NAIA-1 is allowed 11 full rides) and academic standards restricting any player below a 3.0 gpa from being recruited. This season his team lost their best player before the season began and still managed a 21-9 record. Tommy, in my opinion, probably should have been hired to coach the Utes four years ago. As a Westminster and Ute supporter, I wanted to make sure that you recognized that he should have received mention.

    I think Utah will stick with Boylen for at least one more year. For starters, with the PAC deferred funding, Utah doesn't have the cash to buy out Boylen and pay for a new coach. And Boylen didn't do too bad consiering the mass exodus he had after last season.

    How about Heath Schroyer? He's a former Y assistant coach. It would also be interesting to hear what happened to James Bradley, also a former Y assistant.

    Give Boylen another year. Let's see what he has coming in the next year.

    Dick Hunsaker's record at UVU is a total mirage. UVU played the 345th toughest schedule in Division 1 basketball--that's dead last in the country. Playing New Jersey Technical Institute (and their equivalent) 20 times a year is not that impressive. This year's team would have had a difficult time competing against SLCC and Snow.

    What happened to Tony Ingles? I thought he was having some success at Kennesaw State in (?) Georgia.
