I don’t really have the energy for a rant.

Utes open Pac-12 with the ending at the Oregon game and close with that ending at Stanford.

I’ll be happy tomorrow as this season will end better than I thought it would go, but it was so close to something special it’s hard not to be upset about that.  Especially because not getting there was so self inflicted.

My immediate post game thoughts…

1. Can’t have starts like that next year.

2. Our name players have to make better decisions down the stretch, Delon and Loveridge both forced shots that might have won the game.

3. If only one thing can happen, Larry has to stop over coaching in those tight situations.  His two late time outs resulted in no points and whatever happened on that last possession, well I don’t know.

I’ll let this sit have have some thoughts tomorrow.

Right now I’m going to go kick my dog and yell at my wife.
