Re: Bye-bye to the NCAA??

The P5's basically are separate in football right now. G 5 teams cannot compete for the national championship. Think of how many have gone undefeated, but were not allowed to play for the national title. Call me a "little brother" all you want, but being that is the case and it isn't going to change...

Re: Depth chart predictions

There are obviously some things Miller clearly does and brings to the table that Coach Smith values that the average fan doesn’t see or know. Smith had S...

You guys are funny, asking if he’ll make the nba. The real question is how many times he’ll be in the all-star game in the next 15 years.
All Star game? Kareem Abdul Jabbar has the record for most MVPs in NBA history. . . for now. Justin Bean will change that.

Definitely a staple in Utah Culture for over 20 years. Great coach who got the most out of the Jazz year after year. He had the team prepared and within a few plays of beating the Bulls in 97 and 98.
