  • Hit the nail on the head Rick. Agree on all points. Batin is fine. He’s not a star but he can make shots and contribute.

    Our offensive scheme was disjointed garbage. And games were there for the taking if they could’ve ran something competent…

    I’m shocked this staff couldn’t put something better out there with the talent on this squad. Shocked.

  • I’m off the Larry wagon. But this transfer isn’t the kind of transfer to stress about.

    Carlson came on big time this year. And when your fellow freshman firmly plants himself as a four year starter in your position it’s hard to blame a kid for packing up and heading out… there are other centers that can back up Carlson. It doesn’t need to…[Read more]

    Both is the truth!
     
    he should have been doing this all year!!
     
    wed be a tourney team!!!
     
    we do it right on the defensive end of the floor.
     
    i just hope and pray that this isn’t gach’s swan song and that he teased me with such a scintillating performance before going to star for some other team.

  • I’ve been able to square myself with the state of the program for a lot of years.

    But not this year. I see NCAA tourney level talent that coach hasn’t been able to coach into the tourney.

    Credit to k for bringing in the talent and credit to him for a lot of things. But the way he’s coached this years offense has me pulling my hair out.

  • I think you underestimate how good this team is.

    A baller point guard in Rylan
    An nba talent in both gach
    A center that can do anything.
    Timmy Allen is all conference already.

    And some really good supporting cast players
    Jantunen is a great defender and post player
    Brenchley and Plummer are both really good.

    I’m not saying they’re sweet 16…[Read more]

  • Donovan was fabulously efficient tonight. Just check that stat line!

    Utah lacrosse played tough on the road vs. a ranked Lehigh time yesterday.
     
    got dominated at the face off x, or so it appeared.  And the seemed to be the difference in the game( I only got to watch the back third)
     
    point is, two years in, this progeam looks pretty solid already.  Probably way ahead of schedule.
     
    on another note for my lax…[Read more]

  • Has the Pac-12 improved its basketball ref situation this year???
     
    just seems like foul counts are Down, they’re letting teams play for a change and there is less absurd foul calls.
    It seems Utah had a reasonable foul count and that Oregon osu game had a tight foul count too.
    on the other hand… the Utah state game had 49 foul calls.  This…[Read more]

  • Yeah how is it we can’t get Denver? Maybe they’re big timing us because they have the premier program in the west and don’t want us digging into their competitive advantage. We looked good today though!

    Does are ride translate to the rest of the year???

    Anybody have any knowledge on if Utah is targeting a conference affiliation?

    I have to pi…[Read more]

  • I really think once this team learns to pass it’s going to open things up. And it started last night. It was ugly but they’ll clean it up and look a lot better as conference play rolls on.

  • He was so dang good for so long!

    You’re right, they’ve scouted him and now he needs to take the next step as a passer.

    Az state was impressive the way they passed out of the double and whipped the ball around!
    Hope everybody took note.

    I think we started to do that yesterday but we’re just babies at it… but I really like that we’ve…[Read more]

  • People need to realize how big kuzma leaving early was.

    That team was primed to be pretty special and he was primed for a big season.

    And the entire perception of the program would be different.

    I don’t think it’s so crazy to rag on coach k like I think it’s crazy to rag on Whitt. K has made some mistakes.

    But perspective IS a big deal. You…[Read more]

  • It’s clear that Timmy Allen as been the engine for this team.  And the last few opponents haven’t let him do his thing.  
    the previous games were soooo ugly when Timmy was shut down.  But I saw stuff tonight that Really encouraged me going forward:
    the biggest thing is that I started seeing was the counter to the double on Timmy.  Guys started…[Read more]

  • Agreed. They absolutely mauled BYU. They looked a little iffy for a few games, really shored things up for conference play until the very end. Good not great. We needed great for a special season. But they were a year off. In a perfect world you prob don’t start dudes til their RS sopHmores. We were forced to start two rs freshmen. But it w…[Read more]

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Solomon Enis under utilized ? in the forum Football 3 months ago

    Yup. I hope so. Losing him is a big deal. Not saying it’s not. But on the flip side…what if he’s not heads or tails better then the other returnees… Thompson and nacua are big and we have stud tight ends…

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Solomon Enis under utilized ? in the forum Football 3 months ago

    I watch every play this year and made it a point to watch him. And I’ve rewatched soon could watch him. I haven’t written him off as being the 4 star guy we’re all hoping.. and he still brings great things to the table..

    My beef is this. So many are blaming the throw game and that Utah doesn’t know how to use wideouts and crap like that.…[Read more]

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Offensive line in the forum Football 3 months ago

    Yup… bummer we had a transfer(empey) that was a unique circumstance and would have helped a lot this year. A medical retirement in that group too in the last couple of years…

    Some bad luck in that group.

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Solo in the forum Football 3 months ago

    Vele spent a lot of the year injured..

    As good as his hands and body were the points been made that he maybe didn’t have the top end speed to get open… I tend to think that might’ve been the case..

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Solo in the forum Football 3 months ago

    Nacua has shown some propensity to get deep… he’s been pretty good for us.

    I mean, so has enis, just not a ton through the air…

  • Ute2 replied to the topic Offensive line in the forum Football 3 months ago

    Good thing is they’re young
    1 sr.
    1jr.
    1 so
    2 for.

    It woulda been cool to have a veteran group. But on the bright side, good times are ahead..
