Re: Recruiting

Is it just me or are all these grad transfers shooting above their league? UVU to USC/Arizona? :wtf: Seems like a HUGE jump. I agree. Several of these fools have fair success in the Summit league, WAC, Big West, etc. and then go be role players or ride the bench in the Big-10, ACC, Big East etc. no...

Re: Update

It makes no sense to give a year back to winter sports which means the NCAA will probably do so.

Some think that White will be a starter at BYU next year. I would definitely rate him above Jardine.

Re: Casdon Jardine in transfer portal

A lot of the UVU players were not happy this year and some of them going in the portal that want to play for Pope at BYU. I have no idea how Jardine feels about Duryea but I do know that TD going to Boise was not why Jardine left. He wanted out of Boise because it wasn't working.

How about Greg Grant being a 13 seed? He was an amazing player. Third all time leading scorer in Aggie history.

Re: Vote for Utah’s Best College Players - KSL

The bracketing is really messed up. The most glaring one for me is Nate Williams. He is one of the best players to ever lace em up on a college floor in our wonderful state. He is definitely a top 15 or 16 guy and he got a 9 seed.

Re: The Shot - No call

It was a foul but one that is inconsistent in how it is called. Especially that far away from the basket. The out of bounds call on Queta was atrocious. The missed call on Sam not so much.

Re: Our NCAA Tourney struggles

Completely agree with the sentiment that the scheduling strategy has been the biggest problem. We had some teams that could have won some games but they had never played the kind of competition we faced in round 1. And better scheduling would greatly increase the odds of better seeding.

I'm sure the team that wins the NIT is better than 20 or so NCAA teams. Especially many of the non power conference autobids. If we can't get to NCAA bid I think a run in the NIT could be pretty exciting.
