A while back I wrote this post about what next years hoops schedule would look like. And it looks like I NAILED IT.
Utah is taking a page from the Stew Morril school of scheduling. We’re adding an exempt tournament over Thanksgiving, which means we’re paying serious money for some body bag games. We could have as few as two road games OOC next year. One is at BYU and the other would be East High but I think Parker Van Dyke is too talented for the kind of team we’re looking for. In short I think Norm Parrish has put out an ad, “Are you exceptionally bad a college basketball, call us at 801-581-Utes and ask about scheduling a basketball game.”
And truthfully, I’m not bashing Larry for this. The lapdogs will eat this up and it will assure him of one more season to work his magic. You can hear them now screaming how you can look at the win total and all is well. Utah fans say they want a good schedule but Jim Boylen in his last year delivered the #26 schedule in the nation and got shown the door for it.
In many ways I think Larry is a lot like Roscoe Mendenhall down at BYU. Give the lunatics what they want to see and hear and God willing enough will go right to keep you around.
So enjoy the return of San Diego Christian College or something similar Ute fans.
