    Yet another of what my ute friends like to call a Popping victory for the ball team. Onward and upward!

    The Utes haven't had anything to look forward to since Bogut left.

    daviscoug, respect to you, buddy. Nothing wrong with hoping all the rivals have success after the game's over. Cougs shouldn't want to have lost badly to a last place in conference team, Ags shouldn't want to have lost to the team that did, and Utes shouldn't want their best win so far this season to be against a middling team in a middling conference.

    Good Luck Utes! It seems like every player on your teams literally plays all out every single second!!!! I think they have heard all the rumbling about their OOC games and seasons past. I actually think you guys end up in the NCAA this year! Good luck and no injuries!!!

    Go Aggies!
    Go Utes!

    Cut these anti-Utes some slack, since Jimmer left they have absolutely nothing to look forward too. Yeah Santa Clara and Pepperdine!

    I must admit, after the close defeat to Oregon and the win over Oregon State, that the Utes are much better than what I thought they would be. Before anybody (Chris B) gets too high, though, let's see how they handle the road. The road is where teams are truly defined - just ask my poor Cougars!! I agree with many Ute fans that Coach K has been a fantastic hirer. He has completely turned the roster over and it is definitely for the better.

    Go UTES!! I'll be watching you guys own the Huskies while eating delicous buffalo wings at B-Dubs. Man, the fans on this comment board are downers. This is a good Utah team. They can do special things.

    "4th? I like the loyalty and optimism but no way is Utah finishing in the top 4 in the conference."

    C'mon dude, nothing wrong with dreaming or aiming a little higher, is it? We have a few overzealous fans ourselves that do that all the time and your fans bashes us mercilessly for doing it.

    Joe Schmoe,
    Outlandish comment. Can you post some reasoning for that opinion?

    If they get 2 wins on the road in Washington my optimism will skyrocket.

    Go Runnin' Utes!

    The Utes are winless on the road this season.

    Game like this are pivotal if you want to play in the NCAA, or sometimes even the NIT. Washington is slighly down this year. Lorenzo Romar is a great recruiter, but a horrible coach. This is a very winnable game for Utah. Hopefully they will come prepared and play a good game. As far as a top 4 finish goes, after how Utah played Oregon, that's ceainly not out of the relm of possbilility. Arizona, Oregon, Colorado and UCLA are all good. Let's revisit this about 12-14 games into conference play.

    GO UTES!

    Anything better than last place and the season will be a success in my eyes. I'm afraid this team has already hit its high point.

    4th? I like the loyalty and optimism but no way is Utah finishing in the top 4 in the conference.

    I love what Coach Krystowiak is doing with this team. We got the right guy in place. Keep supporting the team and it won't be long until Utah is in the NCAA tournament regularly again.

    4th? That's what I like about you CB, you're an optimist.

    Love how coach k has developed this team. This team is a year ahead of schedule. I didn't think we would be quite this good this early under coach K.

    No reason we can't finish in the top 4 of the PAC 12.

    Lets get this win utes
