    The athletic department does that at most away games.

    Odd. At the tailgate all the athletics people were asking who was behind it. Including Harlan’s right-hand man.

    That is strange. It’s flown at almost every away game, and often gets tweeted by the U

    Do you think Majerus would agree? Do you think he would prefer the constant step-back threes of Golden State, or the blatant foul-seeking of Harden and Paul, rather than the pick-and-roll of Stockton to Malone, or the teamwork of the early-00's Pistons championship team, or the fundamentals of the Spurs multiple championship teams?
    I think Golden State passes the ball extremely well, and Majerus would be singing Steve Kerr's praises on spacing. I also don't think Majerus would approve of hand-checking as an appropriate defensive measure, and the game has gotten significantly better since they cracked down on that.

    I wouldn’t know. The L.A. games are the only away games I go to. I showed the photo of the banner to Manny Hendrix and the new head of athletics development, and to others, and they were delighted and asked me if I knew who was responsible. Maybe they didn’t know. Anyway, it’s really a fun thing for Utes fans to see. Which was my point.

    Indirect name drop by LA Ute!

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I’m just curious who is doing it, cause I assumed it was the U.

    The exact same banner flew at the Pac-12 championship game last year

    It’s cool regardless

    I’ll see what I can find out.
