    KSL: Utah Corrects its Mistake and Will Play byu

    utah byu
    “Corrects its mistake”??!??!! Who corrected the mistake of the byu player sucker punching Brandon Taylor in the face then dropping FBombs on our coach? Completely unbiased article by KSLOL. The mistake is putting them back on the schedule

  • leftyjace

    What a joke.

    Something tells me that the Trib vs. the DNews/KSL is going to escalate.

    Meanwhile…….

    http://www.sltrib.com/news/3956084-155/state-investigating-how-byu-police-access?page=1

     

    SlTrib GRAMA requests the records of BYU police officers access and dissemination to the Honor code office. The next day DPS is requested to investigate the access to records. Honor code office stinks.

    The Tribune in April asked BYU police for comment on the Nov. 20 campus-police inquiry into Barney’s file. Lt. Arnold Lemmon at that time said BYU police looked at the file because Provo investigators initially accused them of reporting Barney for discipline under the Honor Code.

    “It had come to our attention, so our officer looked at the case file, which, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that,” Lemmon said. “The bottom line is, the Provo City officer made some assumptions.”

    However, BYU’s reports and Provo police records show that Provo police first contacted BYU about the issue on Dec. 3 — almost two weeks after the log showed BYU police viewed Barney’s file.

     

    Barney said herself she didn’t know BYU was investigating her until Nov. 25, and she first alerted Provo police to possible witness retaliation after that, triggering Provo’s investigation.

    Lemmon said BYU police officers are allowed to access cases in other jurisdictions.

    “Many times it may not be our case directly,” Lemmon said. “If we learn … we have a student who’s a victim in the community, we’ll often look at another agency’s case file. … There’s a myriad of reasons agencies look at each others’ reports.”

    In the email asking Rhoades to look up information, the Honor Code counselor does not appear to portray Barney as a crime victim. Instead, she begins, “Hi Aaron, I just took a report alleging that one of our students (Madison Barney) has falsely accused a community member … of rape.”

    Barney said she finds it “ridiculous” that BYU police accessed the file. But she said she is even more distressed that police didn’t wave the Honor Code Office off her case after reading her detailed report.

    “The fact that they could read through that and just not care makes me want to throw up,” Barney said. “That they would read about the violence, the screaming, the crying — I don’t see how any human being could read through that and have anything but compassion.”

    Neither Rhoades nor Lemmon returned messages left Wednesday by The Tribune.

      Thumbs down. It’s not a sports story. take it to the other site IMO.

        Pointing out what you can and can not post also belongs on the other site. The subject matter is about KSL and their ridiculous reporting. I have included another story in regards to the hypocrisy of BYU.

        • Hammer

          We can talk sports, or BYU non-athlete honor code stuff. You chose the latter. Way to go! Keep on posting!

    Did you guys see who wrote the article? It’s the official pot  stirrer of salt lake… Otherwise known as PK.

    He gives tds some jabs too. He’s just trying to ruffle our feathers by stating it that way.

    I kinda liked the comments about TDS 🙂

    Baseball Question

    What is the format for the regional? Does Utah have to beat Ole Miss two out of 3 games to advance? No pool play or anything, right?

    Article from KSL has information about game times and a breakdown of the teams in Utah’s bracket.

  • 89ute

    Seed 1 vs 4, winner plays winner of Seed 2 vs 3.

    Loser of 1 vs 4 plays loser 2 vs 3.

    As soon as a team has lost two games, they’re out.

    What is going to happen when NBA teams learn Poeltl has a jumpshot?

    I honestly think he might sneak into the top 5. Ive maintained he had a jumpshot since I saw him drill a couple 20 footers for his Austrian national team

     

    Evidence:

    It might take time to develop to NBA game ready, but the tools are there

  • Hammer

    Poeltl has great touch for a Big man. He needs to shoot more. He could have a killer Low Post Fade Away.

    Bonham Named to Pac-12 All-Star Team

  • leftyjace

    NICE!!!! That is so AWESOME!!!!

    Man, that will only help his development. A TON!!!!

    Wow!!!!

  • Hammer

    We just need a solid 2 guard and we could have a pretty good team. Bonham is solid. Remember the game winning shots he made this last year?

  • Per 24/7 composite rankings, Utah pulled in the 28th ranked recruiting class

    Ahead of pac 12 schools such as Arizona State, Oregon, Washington, etc. That is HUGE.

    Another good year on the field could be monstrous for this program. To give you an idea of what kind of impact on the field success has on recruiting…..our 2015 class ranking (following our 9-4 season) was 40th. The year before? 69th. From 69th to 28th after two good seasons and top 25 finishes.

     

    Another good year this year could really set us up for some long term sustainability, as the last two strong classes mature, and another strong class is grabbed to be their eventual replacements.

    I think it will also help if some of the talk in recent months materializes for them and they get closer to getting an on campus stadium and training facility. Living in Seattle I drive by the UW’s baseball stadium/facility quite often and see how difficult it must be to recruit to SLC when the other schools have faculties like the Huskies.

    • Uteusmc

    Article about Utah Baseball, PAC 12, and Athletics in General

    http://www.ksl.com/?sid=39998240&nid=635&title=baseball-title-latest-example-of-how-pac-12-is-working-for-utah-athletics

     

    “I really thought that softball and baseball had the toughest jobs when we moved into the Pac-12, just because of the traditions and the teams that were playing baseball and softball, and where they were nationally. I really felt like those two sports were the furthest behind,” Kinneberg said. “I made this statement when we went into the Pac-12, and people made fun of me, but this gives us relevance in baseball.

    “Being in this league attracts good players,” he added. “I think people laughed at me for that because it was baseball, but that’s what’s happened. Because of the affiliation with the Pac-12 we have good baseball players.”

  • leftyjace

    Awesome.

    With a coach like that AND a deeper recruiting pool because of the conference, it makes sense that we could have a top-notch program as long as we could keep him.

    Here’s hoping we keep him.

  • leftyjace

    This is where I’m not sure I agree.

    That stadium is a pretty special stadium. Why NOT continue to use it?

    Serious question. Maybe there’s something I’m missing.

    • 89ute

      it’s tough for the team to schedule around the Bees and with the exception of last Saturday and Sunday, the stadium is cavernous with kind of a weird feel.

      Next is my total guess, but I doubt they ever get to practice on Smith’s Field.

      Plus, Kinneberg and everyone else associated with the baseball program wants an on campus field, so there are probably more issues. I’m also going to guess that the practice field on campus now is a piece of junk — poor dirt, poor grass, that kind of thing. Probably sucks to practice on and not a nice thing to show recruits.

    Some insight on Utah Baseball from a MLB scout

     

     

    I dont care about baseball at all, but im really proud of the accomplishment nonetheless. From what I gather the Utes just won a conf champ in a solid baseball conference with far less “resources” (essentially talent) than their competitors. Doing more with less is what Utah does best. YEAH UTES.

  • 2

    From what I understand Utahs baseball program went from going to be cancelled to a PAC 12 championship. Coaching staff needs a raise I think.

  • leftyjace

    Agreed.
    Let’s start another tradition of excellence here.
    What baseball players WOULDN’T want to have some variation in seasons? Really. 😉
