    Colorado only has 1senior—Namon Wright—an almost Ute, who was supposedly a big loss—he was no factor tonight.

    Both Gach is really good—he is a point guard when he can pry the ball out of Sed’s hands. Makes really good set up passes—would have had 2-3 more assists if Jayce or Novak could finish a 2 foot shot.

    He is a very good defender—& then there was his off the backboard set up dunk to TImmy A.

    BUT the big news was history was made if you were present —more than PVD’s first dunk—-Jayce hit 4 nothing but net free throws in a row,
    of course it was Headband (now with matching colors for the jersey) Jayce, so maybe that explains it.

    Look at the losers Larry's keeping company with:

    Here are the five highest-paid coaches who are on track to miss the NCAA tournament

    1. West Virginia's Bob Huggins

    2. Utah's Larry Krystkowiak

    3. Wichita State's Gregg Marshall

    4. Indiana's Archie Miller

    t-5. Georgia's Tom Crean

    t-5. Texas' Shaka Smart

    I missed this article when it came out a few weeks ago:

    Why is Kyle Whittingham so much more popular than Larry Krystkowiak? Here are five reasons Ute fans cite.

    That's certainly not true here.

    I remember when Kurt was asking fans on Twitter for material for this article. I think it's Kurt's first real miss as a Utah beat reporter in the sense that it's obvious from all angles that Kyle is top national football coach. I like Larry, but to suggest that he's done anything comparable to what Kyle has done is ridiculous.

    Right. He doesn't mention 2008. Sports writers are so dumb. I can't think of an exception in the whole profession. And now with the Internet they're totally unnecessary.

    I disagree. We actually see many more people here expressing misgivings about Larry than about Kyle. You know that. I’m not a huge fan of Kyle’s style because it frustrates me, and I get grief for that.

    The flaw in Kragthorpe’s piece is that it’s about coach popularity. That’s a dumb basis for judging a coach. The real test Utah fans should apply is the coach’s success in driving the U of U forward in that coach’s sport.

    Just looking at records, as opposed to popularity, Kyle will not be matched by any other Utah football coach. He has steadly built the program over many years, especially since the PAC-12 era began. We all expected progress in that new era to take a while. Everyone knows it takes longer to make progress in football than it does in basketball, where the right coach can turn a program around very quickly. I’ve never liked Kyle’s uber-conservative style or the untouchable status he has here, but he gets results and he’s around now until he’s 64.

    So as a Utes fan who likes Kyle and his successes a ton but doesn’t love everything he does, I’m more than happy to ride the horse we’re on and I will be at the Rose Bowl (or any other Utah bowl game) cheering wildly if he gets the Utes there.

    Larry’s had his ups and downs and the jury is still out on him. Most of us are taking the “cautiously patient” approach with LK. But he has not built the program and made it his the way Kyle has with football.

    Jones transferring.

    https://www.sltrib.com/sports/utah-u...rles-jones-jr/

    This is no surprise at this point, but it does look like another miss by Larry. How concerned should we be about this? Is it typical for JC transfers to fall short like this? Should the coaches who recruited him have known this was coming? I don’t know. What does everyone think?

    I feel like larry hits on jc guys more often than not. For whatever reason, cjj didn't fit here. Im glad we can now take a chance on someone else in the hope that they'll be a better fit. I wish chuck the best.

    Also, first wave transfers tend to be announced all together (JoJo and dd in 17, Reyes and I Wright I. In 16 etc). Im hopeful this is it for transfers.
