    You can be assured that I’d protest the hell out of that.

    From Athlon's ranking of top college football-basketball coaching duos:

    *****


    15. Utah

    Football: Kyle Whittingham
    Basketball: Larry Krystkowiak

    After a relatively rough transition from the Mountain West to the Pac-12, the Utah football program has averaged 8.8 wins over the last four seasons and is 19–17 in league play over that stretch under Whittingham (above, right). Krystkowiak has done a terrific job rebuilding the Utah basketball program. In his last three full seasons, the Utes are 13–5, 13–5 and 11–7 in the Pac-12.

    *****

    Oddly enough, they rank UCLA 14th because of Chip Kelly's hiring. Seems dumb to do that before Chip has coached a single game at UCLA.

    In the Wall Street Journal rankings Utah jumped from #312 in 2018 to #169 in 2019. Clearly, hanging out in the PAC-12 has been good for the neighborhood.

    Applications to the U. are up 45% and the acceptance rate is 67%. To get In applicants must generally have a 3.6 GPA and a 27 ACT. I imagine there are waivers for athletes and others in special categories.

    Are you sure? Have you fact checked that on Cougarboard?

    Wow. The U invited to join the AA. This is the most important development since the Pac 12 invite. It is huge.

    Can someone ELI5 as to why this is big? I've read a lot of people saying it is, but I'm not familiar with such academic things.

    It's just a club of universities that consider themselves better than the rest, and they've invited us to join. It might enhance research collaborations or help bring in more grant money.

    The university made another big announcement today. Starting in 2020, if you're a Utah resident, never before enrolled, with a 3.2 GPA and Pell grant eligible, they'll give you four years of tuition.

    E-mail received a few minutes ago from Mark Harlan:
    _____________________________________________

    Dear Ute Nation:



    As the calendar has now turned to 2020 and as we enter the second half of this school year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible success the Utes are experiencing in competition and in the classroom. It’s an exciting time to be a Ute, and this is an opportunity to pause and appreciate what is happening at the University of Utah, particularly in Athletics.


    I’m extremely proud of the performance by our athletics programs thus far in 2019-20. They have set the bar high and continue to contribute to a championship culture that elevates expectations for the entire department.


    Each of our fall sports programs received NCAA postseason or bowl game invitations, and one, Volleyball, finished in the Top 10 in the nation.



    • Volleyball: Pac-12 Coach of the Year Beth Launiere’s team reached the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and finished 9th in the final AVCA rankings, the highest finish in program history.
    • Football: Pac-12 Coach of the Year and Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year Kyle Whittingham’s team won the Pac-12 South for the second year in a row, won 11 games, and played in the Alamo Bowl, one of the top Pac-12 Bowl partners.
    • Soccer: Coach Rich Manning’s squad qualified for the NCAA Division I Soccer Championships.
    • Cross-Country: Coach Kyle Kepler’s team qualified for the NCAA championship meet and placed 16th, the highest finish in program history, after placing fifth at the NCAA Mountain Regional.



    Utah is one of just nine athletics programs in the nation—and one of two in the Pac-12—to have teams in all four of these sports reach the NCAA postseason or a bowl game. The Utes closed the 2019 fall season ranked 25th nationally in the Learfield Cup Fall standings that recognizes overall department competitive success. An astounding 26 student-athletes across the four sports earned All-Pac-12 recognition and 11 earned All-America consideration. Beyond the unprecedented success on the field, 45 student-athletes were named to the fall Pac-12 Academic Honor Roll and Utah Athletics produced a 94-percent figure in the most recent NCAA Graduation Success Rate report.


    We all are extremely proud of these accomplishments. It’s important that we take time to celebrate and to acknowledge the people and the hard work that goes into success.


    As always, it starts with our people: high-achieving student-athletes, elite level coaches and extraordinary staff working together every day. However, credit also goes to those who support our programs in every way, which enable us to deliver a world-class experience for our student-athletes. This would not be possible without you, and we will continue to thrive when we combine all of those elements into our plan for future achievements and growth.


    The future is exceptionally bright for Utah Athletics and we look towards exciting new memories in 2020. We will continue to update you on the many happenings here, including the start of construction of the Ken Garff Performance Zone at Rice-Eccles Stadium this month, along with many other exciting projects ahead. Thank you all for being a part of the Utah Family.


    Happy New Year!
    Mark Harlan
