Don't you hate re-reading your comment and seeing an ugly grammatical error?Sorry, editing error on that one.To quickly add to what I said above. I
simply like what I see with what this Utah staff is teaching and implementing. I
think they're building the program the correct way.It is of course far too
early to know how it will all turn out, but I have a good, good feeling about
the future of Utah basketball.No reason to think the Y won't continue on
their path as well.
CougFaninTXWhile I won't argue with your comment, I will state one
thing;Few teams ever get beyond the sweet sixteen or even the first round
by playing the tempo Dave Rose is playing - though fun to watch.Teams that
are capable of succeeding with that style of play have twice the athleticism of
the Cougs. So if I'm a Coug fan I'm asking myself if, am I satisfied with BYU
getting to NCAA tourney but advancing only when the occasional Jimmer comes
around?Getting to the NCAA is a good accomplishment any time a team can do
it, but I think we all hope for more.How does this relate to Utah? Utah's
clearly not good this year, but that slow down tactic you mention above isn't
entirely what you make it to be. It's not an attempt to keep the score
respectable, it's an attempt to win the game the only way they currently can.
But even when Utah gets shooters you can bet your life they won't speed it
up much. This staff understands what Majerus understood ... they'll never make a
serious run in the tourney with an uptempo style without having UNC type
Glad to see Foster is considering coming back next year. That would help
tremendously. Good luck to the Utes against Stanford and Cal. Tough
road trip against some very well coached teams.
Since Stanford and Cal coaches are good friends of Coach Kry, hopefully they'll
give his team some mercy. Both games are likely 20+ point loses for the Utes.
I'm sure we'll hear about Utah's slow down offense again, trying to
limit the impact. Since the outcome of the games are not in question, my
objective for looking at the score is to see if U scored 40 points.Hang in there lil' brother. The season / suffering is half way over.
