If Coach Jim Boylen has done nothing else, he has built Utah’s basketball program into the toughest group of players in the country. Thuggish almost.
Gone are the days of the string bean, white bread, shooting guards from Payson, UT and Pocatello, ID. Know where they went? Utah State and BYU.
Utah football has been so successful, I guess Jim Boylen is trying to emulate that on the basketball court. Whatever the case, you never saw this type of stuff under Rick Majerus.
We might not be the perennial Utes basketball powerhouse like the 90’s, but as long as the football team is tearing it up, the basketball struggles are a little more tolerable. As long as we throw down dunks while we struggle, totally fine.
