    Utah MBB #19 in NET Rankings

    I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I have to say that this season so far feels a lot like some of the Majerus years, not the ones that we were really good, but the ones that we snuck up on people. Like 1992-93 or 1994-95, although I’d have to look back at those more specifically.  I just seem to remember a number of seasons looking a little raggedy at the beginning of the season, sometimes losing ones we shouldn’t or narrowly escaping games we should dominate.  Thinking we are going to struggle, then all of a sudden it all falls together.  So I’m open to being pleasantly surprised. 

    I am of the hopeful belief that Craig is a good coach, where I had long since came of the belief that Larry was a bad coach.  I had long felt that Larry’s teams were not showing game over game or year over year improvement. I think we are seeing signs of improvement with Craig, although jury is still out.  Nevertheless, AZ a most unexpected treat!!  And I’ll always take a gritty win regardless because it’s a great reminder not to give up. Along with my Vikings dominating, and the FB team embarrassing USC, what a fun week!!! 

    • Thank you for this post. I feel the same way.

          Had raised optimism after attending the blowout over Arizona which end with a 2 minute standing ovation from the crowd (been a long time since we had that in the Hunty) but saw some of our weaknesses exposed again yesterday (a win that was ugly as they come, but a win nevertheless).

          Still I see more potential on the team than we’ve seen for a while

    That is… a pleasant surprise! Smith is an easy guy to cheer for.

    Anthony Richardson to the NFL

    Florida should be very beatable at home next year. With 11 P5s next year we could easily make the playoff as a 2 loss champ.

    Yeah, I called that a few days ago. I follow Florida football and it was increasingly obvious that Richardson would declare for the draft. He’d be a fool not to because he has all of the physical tools and is projected as mid-1st RD pick. Personally, I think he’s better than Trey Lance, he sure as heck has played against much fiercer competition, and Lance was the 3rd pick of the 2021 draft.

      You did call it. I was against you hHa

      • Florida’s QB room is in shambles right now. There’s no doubt that Napier will bring someone through the portal to QB the team next year. Whoever that person is, doubtful that they’ll have the same physical gifts that made Richardson so difficult to handle in Gainesville this past season.

          I hear Tuttle is available to go to Florida 🤔😆

    …and their second string QB just went to jail for possession of child porn.

  • Dorian Singer entered the Transfer Portal today

    Does anybody want to bet he ends up at USC replacing Jordan Addison? Article from ESPN:

    Arizona’s Dorian Singer, who led the Pac-12 with 1,105 receiving yards this past season, entered the transfer portal on Monday.

    Singer, a sophomore, had 66 catches with six touchdowns and averaged 16.7 yards per reception this past season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

    Singer and Jacob Cowing (85 catches for 1,034 yards with seven touchdowns) were the first Wildcats teammates to surpass 1,000 yards receiving in the same season.

    Monday was the first day for non-graduate transfers to enter the portal.

    Arizona’s leading tackler, safety Jaxen Turner, who had 79 stops, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions in 2022, also entered the transfer portal on Monday. So did defensive lineman Kyon Barrs, who had 39 tackles this past season.

    The Wildcats finished 5-7 in 2022.

    I want Singer to be a Ute.  But, that’s not going to happen.

      Yeah, he posted the same of ASU. I guess the Utes and Sun Devils have offered him already.

        He’s from Phoenix so going to ASU would be a homecoming for him. Utah obviously has a much better team and the ability to win “right now.” I think Utah’s case would be supremely bolstered if Rising would stay an extra year. You could make that a selling point to Singer. I think USC gets him because they can offer him more NIL money and the opportunity to play with the presumptive Heisman Trophy winner.

  • I also think that Singer is going to be a one-year rental, wherever he goes.

    • Isn’t he a freshman? Also I think he’s transferring because delaura punched him. Maybe whe wants a mor

      familial atmosphere. 

      • Well then we better hope he doesn’t find out about the body paint

          I feel like I am missing something, but I am not sure I want to ask…

        • Stone

          Is this related to Tavion and Glover? If so, please explain.

      • Singer was a sophomore this year and will be draft eligible after next season.
