Ute Madness: Vote to see who goes on to lose to the 1998 team

Jerry Pimm guided the 1983 Utes to the Sweet Sixteen after a pair of upsets.

YAY! Here we go! It's the beginning of Ute Madness. Excited? No? Well I'm not, either. I mean, I'd rather the Utes be in the NCAA Tournament instead of producing a fictional tourney. But oh well - what else are we going to talk about?

Today's vote is a play-in type deal. Winner advances to take on the 1998 squad. That should be a slaughter.

The opponents: 

# 8. 1983 Utes (18-14 overall, Sweet Sixteen Appearance).

# 9. 2005 Utes (29-6 overall, Sweet Sixteen Appearance). 

1983 stunned Illinois & UCLA to advance to the Sweet Sixteen, 2005 surprised Oklahoma in the second round to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Overall, 2005 probably was the better team. However, 1983 has more memorable tournament wins. That and they weren't coached by Ray Giacoletti.

Who advances?
