Runnin' Utes lose conference opener to Air Force

Utah is now below .500 on the season and quickly fading to the cellar of the Mountain West Conference. 

This loss is their fifth in a row - the longest losing streak since Ray Giacoletti lost six in his final season. It's also one more nail in Jim Boylen's ever sinking coffin, even though he missed tonight's game due to a family illness. 

I hate to type that, especially with the unknown circumstances surrounding Boylen's absence - but this team is looking worse and worse as the season progresses and it's probably not going to get much easier over the next couple of weeks. 

Awaiting Utah is home games against the San Diego St. Aztecs and BYU Cougars. Neither appear to be a win at the moment. 

If they lose both games, the Utes will have produced their worst losing streak since the pre-Majerus days.

Which, unfortunately, feels like a hundred years ago.
