talking to a ute fan. Best to assume the answer here would be no.
Utelogy,Yes, the so called high school team that owns the utes on the
hardwoods and has for years. That team.

Let's you go lots of things on one night. Trust me the fish bowl smelt
better than the utah game.
This caught me by surprise. I thought, following the AZ trip, they would do
better. Lots of games remaining. I'm not a small coach k fan, but he
can't shoot the ball or play defense...it's up to the players to
handle those two roles. Me thinks the Cougars from Pullman will be facing a
very fired up Ute team.
Down under - Salt Lake City, UTJan. 11, 2019 11:53 a.m.Watched part
of the game in between bathing the cat and cleaning out the fish tank.My
wife made the comment, "man, the utes are terrible at basketball and then
went back to her romance novel. I just smiled and nodded in agreement.--------Let me see if I understand you correctly.BYU
also played last night and your top 3 things to do were:1. Give your
cat a bath2. Utah basketball3. Clean out the fish tankEven your wife would rather:1. Read a romance novel2. Complain
about Utah Rather than watch high school basketball, aka WCC?This expalins why BYU is the #1 most rival obsessed fanbase.
Same story, poor shooting. Barefield isn't good enough to consistently lead
this team and the young talent struggled again.
ekute - Layton, UTJan. 11, 2019 1:06 p.m.Ute buster,“Agreed. We would be fit right into the WCC.”As cannon
fodder for teams like Pacific and Portland.
Ute buster,Agreed. We would be fit right into the wcc.
The utes looked like a Jr. High team out there. OK, they had a few good games
but it now back to normal.
USA lover,the consultant has been hired and he has ordered the lipstick
but he realized he is going to need a few more cases.The pac is also the
lowest class of backetball as well as football.When Herbstreit
speaks, people listen. The pac is on the decline and it all started 8 years ago.
Anyone see the coincidence? HMMMM..

Blaming the refs, again.I think the ute fans missed the two elbows by Gash
to the head of a husky player on drives. Neither was called on him but rather
on the Husky player. Terrible calles. He should have been tossed on either
one. The pac refs were terrible as usual and favored the utes for the most
part.USA lover, shame on you for pointing out Herb's assessment
of pac football. There is a movement by the real P4 schools to boot the pac out
of the P5 group.What a great day in sports, BYU wins by a big
margin and Utah loses by a big margin.
I agree with 'at long last' - the referees favored Washington. It was
obvious. The Utes had no chance.
I was really hoping that the utes would win out so that the annual beat down
that the Cougs gave them once again would add up to a quality win this year
.... not going to happen as this team is probably the 6th best team in the state
this year ....
No ranked basketball teams in PAC-12. Herbstreit called PAC-12 football,
"the lowest class of football in PAC-12 history".They better
hire that consultant fast.
utahute69,As a big man himself and going into his 9th year you would think
strong inside play would be a tradition. Let's give that big money to
somebody else that's going to build and not rebuild every year.
Simply out athlet—ed last night. When you see those kind of in lane blocks
of drop shots and players simply not caring if you go up strong, it just means
one thing. They know that they are better athletes than you. Hats off to the
This was primarily a failure of the Ute players to adjust to the way the
officiating was done. That is, the refs allowed constant hand checks, slaps,
pushes and shoves by Washington - the Utes did not adjust at all to that kind of
play. This was not unfair or biased refereeing, just different from
the usual in that they allowed all the minor stuff to go on unabated. The Utes
did not respond in kind.In any game that is called this way,
Washington has an excellent chance to win. In any game called
'closer', they will have problems.
Utah has some very good guards and small forwards, When it comes to the big
guys, they are slow, uncoordinated, bad passers, have bad hands, don't box
out well, are not great shooters, get blocked a lot, and are average
re-bounders. The game plan is a bunch of outside three point shooting with a
pass going inside being more likely to get picked off rather than caught and
shot. Washington's big men actually could play inside. They were
effective and could score with ease. Their team didn't depend on outside
shooting to stay in the game. I don't know what the coach has in the line
for future players, but he needs to pick up some serious fast big body boys if
he going to end the season with a bid to any post season play. Unfortunately, I
don't see that happening at the Freshman level. We usually come with a
player transfer from another school that is unhappy and doesn't have much
time left in his college playing time. Utah's biggest problem at the
moment is our inability to recruit effective big men that can play on a par
with players like Washington's excellent big men.
