    "We're by far the worst P5 team in football(see bowl games) and by far the worst P5 in football(see big dance field and performance)."


    No need to use inclusive nouns and pronouns. Despite the inflammatory rhetoric, Ute fans know you aren't one of us--but coog fans continue to be fooled.

    Gotta love Coach K's passion! He knows how to get his guys fired up. Reminds me of the good old days with Majerus. Sometimes you KNEW he was going to get kicked out of game to put some fire into he players.

    Keep it up. Let's get another on Monday night.

    Gosh, I usually don't comment on Ute games but, now it seems that I am going to have to root for the Cardinal. I just cannot force myself to get behind the Utes. Unless they are playing Oregon or Washington.

    Typical Utah Ute basketball game tonight. Utes play to the level of the opponent and squeeze out a win. Was disappointed to see Bibbons get caught up in some trash talking with UC-Davis players, which clearly came from his days at Long Beach State. He has been a class act the entire year, so it was odd to see him a bit rattled, but in the end he finished strong and we are so lucky to have him. David Collette was awful in the first half, he must have had 15 turnovers, glad the Utes climbed back as Collette did everything possible to end the season with careless mistakes. The ref's were horrific, gotta love that Coach K loves his players enough to make sure the ref's know he means business even if he has to get ejected, his point was taken! Looking forward to the LSU game, GO UTES!

    I’m not sure there is a big whiner in all of college basketball than Larry. Getting old watching his meltdowns like a 3 year old.

    Only 1 Key to this win. Larry getting the early the cold shower!!!

    If Tommy Connor coaches against LSU then maybe the Utes could win 2 in a row. I'll chip in some air miles and a timeshare in Hawaii if Larry will start his vacation before Monday.

    Utah looked like utter garbage for 80% of that game. Glad they finally woke up. Better play much, much better on Monday.

    Nice the Utes were able to get the win after trailing so long, it seems they played better after Coach Kry was ejected (or because he was ejected?). Go Utes!

    Nice way to fight to the end, even if it was more shaky than it needed to be.

    Pac12 already a total embarrassment in the big dance - we have exactly one team in the big dance field of 64. We're by far the worst P5 team in football(see bowl games) and by far the worst P5 in football(see big dance field and performance).

    Would be nice to see Utah make a run to the NIT final 4 and bring a shred of credibility to the conference, as we did in football with the lone bowl win

    Go Utes
    Go Pac12(even though we're an embarrassment these days)
    Go P5 conferences
