Alekhin:"This is a great reason for any recruit to choose

or just for the rest. Why go to a school that you will be forced to play on
Sunday?"What? The only reason for your post is religious.
Don't pretend it's for "rest". That is just laughable. Every
conference worth it's salt plays games on Sunday, and Sunday games are
played in the NCAA tournament. The only exception (I believe) is byu. A look
at byu's woeful NCAA tournament results makes me dubious about how
beneficial non-Sunday play truly is.@DeepBlue:"Teams

@Ute busters"How are u liking the PAC now?"We
like it just fine, thank you. Even if every home game were on a Sunday,
it's better than playing in high schools gyms in a low-major conference
against teams that even the selection committee has never heard of.
Chris BWhat does the Pope have to say about your Sabbath?
The Sabbath is a blessing, not a burden. I know God will bless those that keep
his commandments. I don't think that will necessarily mean that a
basketball team will win more games if they don't play on Sundays, but
their players, coaches and fans will all be blessed as a result.
Austin Our coach comes to the Sunday games. So he’s a true
This is a great reason for any recruit to choose another school that
doesn't play on Sundays. Whether for religious reasons or just for the
rest. Why go to a school that you will be forced to play on Sunday?
Chris,Because you don't believe in a sacred Sabbath does not believe
that true fans should not. Very silly comment.I have to say that I am
disappointed in the U for selling out what I thought was a core belief for big
conference play. Couple that with the recent behavior of our AD I am less if a
fan than I used to be. College sports have lost their way.
CB,In reality, the more respected teams in the conference get the better
schedules. How are u liking the PAC now?
Having a day of rest is a gift, rather than a burden.
@Chris BI guess your coach isn't a true "fan" either.
Sounds like he doesn't like Sunday games either.
"Chris" I was a "Ute" before you were
born.......and will be "till I die". There is no reason to play
college basketball games on Sunday. It has nothing to do with being a fan
@ Chris BAs an alum and season ticket holder for decades I
don't need you to preach to me about being a "fan" I
don't attend sporting events on Sunday, so I give my tickets to family and
friends who choose to attend on Sunday. I'm sure there are thousands of
"fans" just like me. We love the U, but the fact that we don't
attend on Sunday does not correlate to not being a "fan." I've
spoken with Dr. Hill about Sunday scheduling and he is doing what he can to
minimize Sunday games. How is it appropriate for some PAC12 schools to have
zero Sunday games and we have four? I know it will never happen,
but I'd prefer all college sports not be played on Sunday as I believe our
student athletes deserve a day off and I hate to miss any Utah games.Go Utes!!
Yes Chris. We know that playing on the Sabbath is not an issue for you.U
have fewer "fans" than u used to with the recent meltdown on the hill.
I'm sure, since the Pac12 is so honored to have the privilege of having the
mighty Utes in their conference, that all it will take is a call from Chris Hill
and the conference will accommodate the U's desire to not play on Sundays.
Right?If not, hey, the Utes could apply for admission to the WCC.
Love the Sunday games. It separates the fans from “fans”The fans come. The “fans” don’t If you
can’t support our team 7 days a week, go cheer for the blue
I'm pretty sure Utah basketball has less fans attending Sunday. Makes sense
financially for Utah to keep games on Saturday.
