Best of luck to Utah in their coaching search. They are a team with a lot of talent, and I hope they are able to put it together and reach the tournament this coming year.

The stronger the teams, the stronger the conference.

Good Luck!

Is any of the staff returning? I know Coach Rich put together a great staff, with alot of experience. His record does not tell the whole story. They do not have many "easy" games. They travel to play tough OOC games, and their home games are usually against top 20 teams coming for a 2nd game after playing BYU. Good luck to both parties involved.
