    2018 offseason thread

    Didn't see a thread for general offseason stuff, but per a tweet from Bill, Sed Barefield is working out for the Lakers today which implies that he has declared for the draft. Very smart decision on his part.

    This is good, I never figured out how to pronounce Doutrive.

    It's a rite of passage for a Utah basketball coach to say he's gonna put the run back in runnin' utes.

    LOL. My first thought was, Jayce isn’t on the team anymore?!?!

    Every time that kid runs, it looks like it’s the first time.

    That bar ain't very high to clear. Utah in adjusted tempo under Larry, per Pomeroy

    2018: 299
    2017: 142 (I cannot give an explanation for this outlier. Anyone?)
    2016: 305
    2015: 328
    2014: 230
    2013: 304
    2012: 322

    Part of the reason Larry says this every year is that nobody challenges on him when he says it.

    Why would we want someone to challenge him on it, though?

    I guess 2017 was Poeltl's senior year, right? He was built to run. That's all I got for explanation.

    Results being equal, who wouldn't want to see games in the 80s and 90s as opposed to the 60s and 70s (or 50s)? And I don't like it when coaches blow smoke up the fanbase's collective ass. It reminds me of when Urban Meyer said the team that gets a block in the kicking game wins 90 percent of the time. I love Urb, but that's a bullshit stat made up on the spot, with almost no correlation between the two.

    2017 was Kuzma's senior year, not Poeltl's, but we did have Bonam in the backcourt, and he was most definitely a push-the-ball type player. Like you with Poeltl, I originally had Bonam's senior year off by a season when I typed what I did about that season.

    Well both of you so called fans are wrong! Kuzma or Poeltl never had senior seasons.
