    Thank you Coach McBride.

    The success of the Utah program is based on the foundation that you built.

    Without you there would be no undefeated seasons, no BCS bowls, and no PAC 12.

    You turned around the Utah/BYU rivalry. In the 22 years since you became Head Coach the record is 12-10 against BYU.

    Coach Meyer and Coach Whittingham have done their part, but they did it on the foundation that you built.

    You returned Utah football to respectability, and you made it fun to be a Ute.

    Thank you. I hope you continue to have a role with the U.

    McBride is a likable guy, I last met him at Ned Alger's funeral when he engaged in conversation with a mostly Y group. He is much like Coach Alger, in that he enjoys coaching and the students and has a way of making those around him feel comfortable with his common man appeal.

    Van Horn was a fantastic college player and a decent NBA player who did not find his niche before the wear and tear on the body came.

    Van Horn was really skilled but a little soft for the NBA game. Part of the problem was that Van Horn was an in-betweener. He was too big to be a small forward and to small to be a power forward. He ended up on the perimeter a lot. In college he could go inside and out.

    Van Horn had a good relationship with Jason Williams in New Jersey before the horrible limo driver thing happened. It messed with his head I believe.

    As a Ute fan who loved watching Van Horn play, I hope we don't forget about him.
