    Stop the complaining

    The nba needs to do something about all the complaining to refs about calls and non calls

    Watching Harden Paul Lillard and others throw their hands up after every play has gotten out of control. Especially when you consider all the freedom offensive players have nowadays to operate.  

    The game has become unwatchable

    It doesn’t bother me. But maybe that’s because I don’t watch the NBA.

  • Hammer

    I completely agree and because of all the complaining – as soon as the Jazz are out of the playoffs, the NBA is dead to me.

  • chinngiskhaan

    I have to say I disagree, complaining happens when you have a sport where the officiating is so quick, subjective, and usually wildly inconsistent. Most complaints are valid.

    That Portland Denver series was great basketball.

    • Hammer

      I have to say, this post is a flop.^^^^^ You must have studied and the James Harden school of flopping.

      Karl Malone and John Stockton were hand checked all game and bumped, and still fought their way through without pulling a Chris Paul fake flop and complain.

      • chinngiskhaan
        2

        okay, so I should clarify, there are some players that take it way too far.

        Harden is the worst, I refuse to watch any game he is involved in. He is doing all he can to destroy basketball.

        I saw Lillard complaining a bunch, but it was usually justified… and then there were the guys getting repeatedly shoved in the back by Jokic that were complaining that were also completely justified.

        Nobody compares to Harden in their ability to ruin the game of basketball in the worst possible way.

        • Hammer

          I agree and disagree. My previous post was in jest. But here’s the deal, the NBA did a crack down on complaining years ago and now it’s back. What happened?

  • Anfernee

    I agree while also disagreeing on the merit of agree to disagree. 

  • BattleGroundUte

    Paul and Harden are in the ear of the refs constantly. I wouldn’t make a very good nba ref because all of them would be ejected.

    It is part of the game though. You see them in the ear of the refs and then make up calls happen. 

    • TheNuschler

      The fact of the matter is Chris Paul constantly falls over when someone whispers in his ear. There is also the report that he threw Steph out of a scheduled shooting session the night before game 6 cause he found out about it. That doesn’t seem smart, especially when it’s a common NBA courtesy for visiting road players to have shooting time at their gym. That kinda stuff gets around the league fast, no wonder he’s not well liked.

      Why poke a sleeping bear with a sharp stick? Dude is really petty.

    I’m still trying to figure out how so many of you still believe this ‘stuff’ is real.  Don’t get me wrong, the players can play.  But if you think the outcomes in playoff or key regular season games is due to the better team winning, you’re smoking someting…

    • TheNuschler

      So last year the Rockets lost cause of Chris Paul and refs. This year they lost cause of refs and Kevin Durant wasn’t playing?????

      When your offense is based on scissor kicking into your opponent’s leg on 75 3’s a game, it’s not going to work in the playoffs. It’s been proven 4 of the last 5 Series against the Warriors.

    Chase Hansen out at Saints

    “non football” injury cited for Chase, apparently replaced by USC’s Porter Gustin

    Chase should take an entire year off from football to let his body heal up completely and then try again. I know he is already “old” by NFL rookie standards, but if he doesn’t get healthy he probably won’t make a team anyway. 

    • PlainsUte

      Yeah, fixing a herniated disk is not an exact science, hard to know the long term outcome in any one person.  At least he has two years door-to-door sales experience.

    Porter Gustin?  Hopefully Chase is safe in that locker room with that predator roaming around.  

    • RiseasUtes

      ???, are you thinking of Osa Masina or is there something Gustin did that I just don’t know about?

      • PlainsUte

        From the looks of him I’d be worried about ‘roid rage.  I guess he tested positive for PEDs at the combine but it was reported to be for Adderall.

    • Hellhound152

      Digging deep Virginia Ute.  Thought everyone had glossed over that “situation”.  Let’s call that one the ultimate display of Bronco Mendenall showing his level of integrity.

            Unfortunately, the only article I can find has about as much detail as your post.

            • Hellhound152
              1 2

              All I can really say about it is that I got my information from someone in that athletic department whom I have been friends with since childhood.  It was sexual in nature and suddenly went away.  BYU was the only “major” program that didn’t recruit Gustin and he was a legacy athlete and the whole extended family are huge Y boosters.  You can connect the dots.  

              • BattleGroundUte
                2 3

                This still doesn’t mean anything. Gustin is a pretty dirty player. He reminds me of that loser from ASU who is a head hunter. Plays to injure other guys not just injure but potentially seriously end a career and change a life. 

                As far as sexual in nature that could mean anything. A teenager had premarital sex and couldn’t get the ecclesiastical endorsement?  The fact that it is talked about among TDS faculty and adults is the f**king disgusting part. 

              • BattleGroundUte
                1

                In fact Virginia Ute seems to allege he is either a rapist or pedophile. Which if he is a pedophile why would Chase need to worry about him in the locker room?  Rapist?? Huh??

                • Virginia Ute
                  1

                  I believe it is told that he forcibly tea bagged a kid in the locker room…

                • BattleGroundUte
                  1

                  That makes him a predator? It fits with his on field character of being an ass I will admit.

                  Lol I guess we have different standards when it comes to that definition.  Holding someone down and sticking your balls on their face meets my criteria.

    Kurt Kragthorpe’s twitter says that the Saints will resign Hansen again in a few days some sort of procedural move.

    • PlainsUte

      I could see this – if Chase can’t participate in Spring Camp, anyway, and they want to get a look at Gustin and/or other free agents, they could waive Chase to free-up numbers and possibly go back to him later.

    Rising

    Saw a tweet out there saying Cam Rising is eligible this year. Anyone got any facts? @onlyU what say you?

  • RiseasUtes
    3

    He should be if they are granting everyone else’s eligibility.  I hope he doesn’t need to see the field much this year, but it would be nice to have some decent depth with Shelley and Rising.

    • PhiladelphiaUte
      4

      Rising already redshirted (2018), so it wouldn’t make any difference from an eligibility standpoint if he sees the field in 2019 or not.  I just hope he doesn’t wind up seeing the field on account of backfilling an injury to a starter.

      That said, in the unlikely event that he beats out Huntley in the Fall, he SHOULD start.  And if not, if we’re blowing out an opponent, I hope he and Shelley get significant time.

      GO UTES!!!

  • Onlyu
    17

    Have not heard the word “official” yet but chances are very good mainly because he didn’t play as a RS. Already sat out a year so to speak.

    Tuttle…well I’m not going to expand but let’s just say the reasoning he listed on his application to transfer is complete BS…soft. That’s all I’m gonna say about that. Excited to have the 4 in the program today. Gamers!

    • Hammer

      What did Tuttle say was the reason he left? Just curious. Where can I find it?

      • darklightning
        2

        He recently watched “Hoosiers” for the first time and decided he wanted to go play for Gene Hackman.

      • Central Coast Ute
        4

        He said he was hazed so he had to transfer to get away from the abuse. It was the reason he used to get immediate eligibility. I hate to say it but that’s what happens when you recruit Socal QB’s. Bunch of entitled kids around here. Not all of them obviously but Tuttle fits that mold. I guarantee you would never see Jason Shelley, a Texan say that.

        • Hammer
          2

          The Hazing went down like this:
          Tuttle: Coach, let me in the game, I’m a 4 star recruit and played on a superior HS team in SoCal.
          O-coordinator: No, you’re soft and will s**t your pants.
          Tuttle: My dad says I’m transferring because of….hazing 😏

          • Central Coast Ute

            That’s pretty much exactly how it went down.

    Zach Moss Wilner’s RB Heisman sleeper. If we produce he will get buzz.

  • BattleGroundUte
    10

    If we can ride him to wins I would love it. Guy has next level talent. We really don’t need Huntley throwing 30-40 times a game. Probably my biggest criticism of TT’s offense. He had some sort of aversion to having Moss carry the team. 

    Ludwig understands and sees great Rushing talent. It is cool to see Wilner giving us some preseason love. 

  • Duhwayne
    2

    He picked us to win the conference too, I think. Fewest question marks.

  • Wilson's Mustache
    22

    After watching Christian McCaffery & Bryce Love get beat out for the Heisman Trophy, I can definitively say Moss is not going to win it. However, he can help lead us to a PAC-12 title and a Rose Bowl as well as end his career with the all time rushing record in school history.

    I think we’d all take that.

    Is it a fair ranking?  As far as championships, I think fair, he needs to get that elusive Pac-12 Championship.  As far as developing players for the NFL, I think it might be low.

            Yep with Urban gone I say his chances have improved. Harbaugh isn’t much a “big game” guy though. He has won some impressive games but not must win games.

    Darren Jones to Snow College

    Sucks but we could still get’em

  • Anfernee

    This really is the best case scenario for us given the circumstances.

    • UtahFanSir
      7

      I agree totally. He is in Utah, and Snow has been a good pipeline to the Utes. He could not qualify academically for this season, and if he is diligent, he will get it done at Snow. Being close, allows him to watch the Utes play. He can come up to SLC for games, and I am sure the coaches would be happy to see him in the stands. I think the guy becomes a Ute in two years, and it is unfortunate the team has to wait that long. But them are the rules. To me, this signals his intent.

      • FountainofUte
        1

        Forgive my ignorance: why two years? Could he not jump to the U after one year if he has a successful freshman year academically?

        • crazyute
          4

          A non qualifier has to get his AA (associates degree) before he can be eligible

    • Utesbyfive
      5

      This, all the way.

  • AZUTE
    2

    The plan is for him to play this season then redshirt his 2nd season and focus on his academics. Then come to Utah as a 3×3 player.

    He was placed to Snow by Utah Coaches and they are monitoring his progress.

    • Utesbyfive

      Why not redshirt his first year?

    Zach Wilson & Moving on

    With Zach coming off double shoulder surgery I think coug fans are going to see more of there backup hall this year than they may be expecting. Especially if Utah roughs him up the first week with Fotu and Anae rushing him consistently. August cant come soon enough.

    With all that in mind why is this riveraly still such a big deal when it literally means nothing to utah besides local bragging rights. When can we move past this and see the bigger picture. 

    Also I hope Ludwig’s offense can continue to put up points consistently this year, because our last games with Oregon, BYU, Washington, and Northwestern wasn’t impressive. 

     

  • chinngiskhaan
    11

    Why is it a big deal still? Well, you are the first to really start a discussion about it in quite a while (minus a comment or two on Anae’s tweet)… so why don’t you ask yourself?

  • UteThunder

    That game will stop being a big deal for me when we stop scheduling them.

  • Brettski
    6

    Utah should have the players to make it 9 straight this year, but anything can happen.  I wouldn’t count out the cougs.  It’s a big deal because of local recruiting & the deep resentment some BYU and Utah have towards each other.

    I think Ludwig’s offense will be on full display early this year and we won’t wait until week 4 to see the offense ‘open up’.  I hate watching vanilla offense early in the year.

     

    • homer

        • UtahFanSir
          6

          They may need to be “pumped” to make it competitive, not taking anything away from TDS. At this point, Tyler Huntley and Zach Moss have a supreme taste for the rivalry, which it is still. The Hallendale Trio will not disappoint. And I see an whole lot of other Utah players who will show up for this one and play like madmen.

      If you were at the game and attend regularly you would have noticed an earlier arriving and louder crowd to start the game.

      I was disappointed because to me the goal was to win the PAC which makes each of those games more important. But they weren’t. Noise doesn’t lie and I don’t get it.
