Of course they did! It's the finest basketball program in the conference!
Why the **** don't we have a report button for this kind of crap?
That is awesome. Utah has a great program, and I feel like a lot of people sleep on them historically because they were stuck in the MWC for so long. Combine that with the fact that their first year in the P12 was one of the worst teams I've ever seen, and no one seems to realize how great of a program they are.
Yeah. Other than a post-Majerus funk, that's probably the 3rd most prestigious basketball program in the conference.
That '98 team was so much fun. And to consider they did that WITHOUT Van Horn who was a top 3 pick the year before. Andre Miller was a badass then as he was only 47 years old at the time and still had young legs.
I'm really struggling to capture the tone of this thread, suddenly.
So, yeah, I agree with all of the praise. But still, eff em, right?
Eff em. Same as with Zona and UCLA. Same as I was with Nebraska in football. I can acknowledge the past and respect those accomplishments... while still wholeheartedly believing they suck ass.
It's harder for me to hate Utah. Never rooting for them, but every Ute fan I've met at the P12 tourney always seems to have the least amount of entitlement compared to any other school's fans when Im in Vegas.
On the football side, however, may I direct you to the Utah/Oregon thread?
makes sense to me why Utah fans rooting for a top-5 team in the country receiving votes for #1 who crushed Oregon would be pissed that we are giving them no credit - that was a huge and incredibly impressive win.
Agreed - a lot of people just see MWC and decide they must have sucked. I call them football refugees.
What makes no sense to me is why they care what we think.
And let's be fair. We were giving them plenty of credit when one of their fans came over whining that we weren't.
