Well, we have two new friends on the block. Today, let's introduce ourselves to our new buddies over at BlockU.
We wanted to learn more about Utah, so we asked them a bunch of questions. They were kind enough to give us some answers. And they also have more information about Utah here.
2008 was spectacular because it proved to us that 2004 was not a fluke. Without 2008, I do not know if this moment, Utah being invited to the Pac-Ten, is even possible.
For me, as a Ute fan, it's amazing to have watched this program grow. My first game was back in 1993. It was against Idaho. I was pretty young. Utah lost.
That shows you just how far this program has come and really, it's been a fairly quick rise.
Even a decade ago, all the way back in 2000, the Utes weren't realistically a BCS contender.
But now they're in a BCS conference.
In a bit over ten years, we've seen a new stadium, three head coaches and two of the greatest seasons anyone could ever imagine.
The topper was today.
Many thanks to JazzyUte and our new friends at BlockU for answering some questions for us today. GO BEARS AND GO PAC12!
1. How do you feel about changing your regional conference rival from BYU to Colorado? Are you hoping your team will still play BYU yearly? How tough is it to become a "rival" with a team you don't presumably have any history with?
5. How far off do you think Utah is from returning to the glory days in basketball?
