Utah's season begins against Idaho tonight at the Huntsman Center. Unfortunately, with the hype of the TCU game, it's kind of fallen by the wayside. That hasn't been my intentions, since I like this blog to be more than just football (and it generally is), however, it is hard getting into the basketball mindset on the eve of the biggest football game of the year.
With that said, I'm excited to see what they do. Last season was a treat (up until the NCAA Tournament) and by all accounts, this will probably be Jim Boylen's first true rebuilding year (I guess you can technically say his first season was a rebuilding one, but...).
Because of this, I hesitate to say the Utes should beat Idaho. I remember last year's season opening loss to Southwest Baptist. So, nothing is a given. With that said, the Running Utes should win.
But if they don't, will anyone know/care/see it? Hopefully the latter is true (well seeing a win would be more ideal, right?) and you're up at the Huntsman Center tonight to watch the start of the 2009-10 basketball season.
Go watch some basketball and get the TCU-Utes game off your mind for a few hours.
