And we're back to losing ... Utah falls to Cal

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Well that one-game run was fun.

It seems every time I praise this team, and believe they've finally gotten over the hump, they go out and lay an egg. Oh sure, they made the Cal game competitive down the stretch, but when you lose, it's hard to take any solace in that fact. So, once again, Utah ends up losers in a game they could have very well won.

That three-game home stretch? Yeah ... not the best start to it.

With the loss, the Runnin' Utes are now, at least for the moment, alone in the cellar of the Pac-12.

I don't know what to make of this team. They're not good. They're not awful ... but I'm afraid they're far closer to being awful than good and that remains a concern. While Cal is a decent opponent, with momentum coming out of that win over Washington, I really expected a better effort. Instead, in front of a partisan crowd, the team fell apart and turned the ball over 17 times ... which was almost as many turnovers as they had made field goals.

Sigh.

Utah will play Stanford Sunday in what I expect to be an empty arena.

Double sigh.
