    "This team will keep getting better."

    Isn't that the same refrain we hear from every coach of a program that's struggling?

    "We lost, but I see improvement."

    Tought games ahead this week. If the Utes are in the games and compete well against some very good teams on the road, that's progress. This team will keep getting better. GO UTES!

    Hurry yewt fans, start complaining about the refs, the injuries and how unfair the schedule is having two big road games the same week. Start now and it won't be such a big deal when you have two losses and make these comments next week.

    Go BOISE STATE!!!!

    Against the Lobos and Rebels, the Utes will have the advantage of everyone expecting them to lose, which may give them the opportunity to at least keep the games close.

    Right now, I'm hoping for a 5th place finish in the MWC for the Utes, behind BYU, New Mexico, UNLV and SDSU.

    "They can put that trophy right next to the NC trophy they won this past year in football after they beat OK."

    We did win the NC in 2010!! I don’t care what anyone else says, I was there celebrating at the airport win hundreds of other cougar fans. WE DID WIN THE NC in football in 2010! And the trophy means just as much as the one we won in ‘84!

    "Back to" has spoken, so let it be written..

    No need to play the games, "Back to" knows how the season is going to end, so lets just forward to the NCAA championship and crown the cougs NC. They can put that trophy right next to the NC trophy they won this past year in football after they beat OK.

    reality after being tied for 1st place after huge home victory over the perenial basketball power TCU (I'm being sarcastic ute fans), the utes will fall hard and will be competing to avoid having to play the play in game for the tourney.

    This will be a good week for the Utes to discover who they are. I am not worried. I am sure that win or loose they will improve as a team and will be very strong when they face the Cougars in a couple weeks. The state has good basketballers.

    ..the Utes may well lose both games, but there are no "guarantees" in league games, especially by "experts" such as yourself. Go back to your knitting.
