    Damn! Is this conference going to be a one bid league?

    One bid would be exponentially more embarrassing that missing the football playoff and a 1-8 bowl season.

    Utah on pace for 18-0...

    Wow. Lobos beat the spread by 41 pts. Go Lobos! What a huge win for that team.

    Oregon St wins at Oregon. Tres Tinkle, not only best name in the league, might be the best player.

    Utah's top three wins on the season so far:

    @ASU (68 - Q1)
    vs. Tulsa (76 - Q3 - one spot from being a Q2 win)
    vs. Grand Canyon (117 - Q3)

    Another opportunity for a Q2 win at home vs. UW, the league's highest ranked team at 53).

    Larry had a few interesting tidbits on his coaches show last night...

    -Lahat has not been cleared to practice yet. He is, as noted here, out of the boot. But right now he is just doing cardio exercises at the facility (I guess they have equipment that can take pressure off of his foot during workouts). Larry said itll likely be a redshirt this year. He also said Lahat has the ability to block and alter shots without fouling. I wouldn't be surprised if he has a big role next year, if healthy.

    -Both injured his ankle last monday and wasn't able to practice at all last week but gutted out some minutes.

    -Charles Jones role could increase but he has been a great presence for the team.

    Any discussion about why this is the worst defensive team in a Utah jersey in Larry's tenure?

    You're probably being more facetious than anything but I heard Larry address this a little. He was complimentary of Allen's defense - remarked that he'd been given defensive player of the game for both Arizona games and, I think, commented on the lack of physicality Gach and Battin have in respect to the collegiate game particularly on defense. That was really it.

    I don't give this team - particularly the coaches - a pass on poor defense. Certainly youth and inexperience play a factor but priority and coaching by the time league play begins can overcome those elements for a lot of teams.

    Conversely, Larry commented about the offense - calling this team pretty strong. He mentioned that if you take turnovers out of the equation the Utes are averaging 1.5 points a possession. The coaches are using that number with the players to demonstrate just how good they can be offensively if they take better care of the ball.

    There you go again, just siding with the coach's narrative!

    CU at home odds go up if McKinley Wright who killed Utes last year is out—he did not play this weekend with shoulder injury.

    They are also thin up front so if Jayce can get them in foul trouble—never mind.

    Utes in review: Three freshman totaled 40 points vs. Washington State. How will their growth frame this season?
    Timmy Allen, Both Gach and Riley Battin will have a lot to say about how the program is judged.

    His parents fled civil war in South Sudan. Now Utah’s Both Gach wants to be a role model for a growing wave of South Sudanese hoopers.

    @Cal is a possibility. WSU just did it pretty easily.
    The future of the past is now!
