New era of Utah basketball kicks off tonight

Utah basketball will host Adams State tonight in an exhibition game and no, it's not the school from Revenge of the Nerds, that was Adams College - not state. Apparently, Adams State is located in Colorado and not the fictitious state of Adams, which I'd like to pretend was named after President John Adams. 

It marks the official first game of the Larry Krystkowiak era, though since it's only an exhibition game, it won't count in the standings.

Regardless, it could give us an idea of what to maybe expect from this year's team, as the Utes struggled to put away the Grizzlies in last year's exhibition game at the Huntsman Center, a ten point Utah win. 

Of course, this is almost an entirely new roster than what we saw during last year's losing season and because of this, not much is expected of this year's Runnin' Utes - they were picked to finish a distant last in the Pac-12. 

With all that uncertainty, hopefully the team can surprise this year.
