Even though Utah struggled last year in the Mountain West, media members have faith that Jim Boylen will turn things around rather quickly.
The Mountain West Conference released its preseason basketball poll and rank the Utes 3rd behind BYU and UNLV. Luke Nevill also made the preseason All-Mountain West team. Utah also received two first place votes. If the Utes finishes 3rd or better, you can probably bet Jim Boylen will be named Mountain West Coach of the Year.
Should be an exciting year in the Mountain West and I would love for Utah to finish in the top-3.
