    Utah Basketball--Runnin' Utes 2017-18

    Big win! Fun game to watch. I thought it was over when ASU took the lead back. They stole the momentum, but Utah hit some big shots.

    If the Runnin Utes can continue to play like they did last night, the remaining season is going to be fun.

    Tough one point loss today. They played tough and almost got it done.


    Toronto ‘Utes’ Jakob Poeltl, Delon Wright won’t stop repping the U.

    “Wright, Poeltl and Los Angeles Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma helped Utah become the only Pac-12 school to produce a NBA first-round pick in each of the last three seasons.“

    “You look at his program, he gets guys ready for the NBA,” Casey added. “I’m a Kentucky man, through and through, so I’m not trying to throw accolades at another team, but he does a great job of coaching his kids so his kids were ready. They understood the nuances of the game when they came into our program so they had a head start by playing for Larry.”

    Despite the heartbreaking loss, I'm very pleased with the way the Runnin Utes played. They played as a team, never gave up, low turnover rate and didn't seem intimidated at all by the crowd or by being down 13.

    Excited for the rest of the season.

    Sad news. Loved seeing the Runnin Utes starters, after getting chest bumps and high fives from the team during introductions, go over and shake Jon Huntsman's hand. He will be missed.

    Jon Huntsman Sr., philanthropist and global business mogul, dies at 80

    SALT LAKE CITY — Utah businessman, billionaire and philanthropist Jon Huntsman Sr. died Friday at age 80, according to his assistant Pam Bailey.

    Huntsman Sr. left his mark on the business world with the global company Huntsman Corporation, now headed by his son Peter Huntsman. Huntsman Sr. was involved with the invention of the first plastic foam egg carton and also founded Huntsman Container Corporation that was made famous by creating the McDonald's clamshell containers.

    Huntsman Sr. was the father of Jon Huntsman, Jr., former governor of Utah, 2012 Republican Party presidential hopeful and current U.S. Ambassador to Russia. Huntsman Sr. and his wife Karen have nine children.

    Early in his career, Huntsman Sr. purchased businesses with money borrowed through Huntsman Chemical, founded in 1982, according to Forbes. He eventually purchased 34 companies, including the $1.06 billion purchase of Texaco's petrochemicals operation in 1994.

    His real-time net worth was $1.21 billion, Forbes said.

    The billionaire philanthropist battled a painful inflammatory disorder called polymyalgia rheumatica. He also survived four bouts of cancer. Huntsman Sr.'s mother, father and stepmother each died from cancer.
    Those ordeals led him to found the Huntsman Cancer Institute and secure lucrative donation funds to that center through the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. His goal was to completely eradicate the disease.
    Huntsman Sr. and his wife were known for being charitable. In 2016, the couple gave away $137 million, landing them the No. 21 spot on Forbes’ top givers list that year.

    During his lifetime, Huntsman Sr. and his family have given away at least $1.4 billion, according to the Deseret News.

    Though he gave away billions later in life, Huntsman Sr. said he grew up in a poor household.

    “I never forget those times, and they leave certain scars in your memory bank and in your heart that you don’t want others to replicate,” he told the Deseret News at the time.

    In December 1988, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake killed 25,000 people in northwestern Armenia. Huntsman Sr. stepped in to help the damaged nation after the quake flattened buildings in a large part of the country. His assistance continued in Armenia over the years. He already had a company in Moscow before the earthquake hit, so it was easy for him to help the Armenians.

    “From the ruins of devastation, they began to rebuild. It captured my heart … to where I said, ‘I have to help these people. I have to be part of it,’” Huntsman told the Deseret News in 2013.

    Since the earthquake, the Huntsman family has visited the country more than 46 times. They have also given more than $53 million to the country through their humanitarian service. The family’s money went toward repairing buildings that were leveled after the quake.

    Armenians awarded Huntsman with two medals of honor and granted him citizenship.

    Huntsman cared for those around him in ways big and small, and took time for things that mattered most.
    Once, a local elementary school class wrote letters to Huntsman Sr., requesting that he meet with them. The business mogul invited the class up for what was supposed to be a 10-minute conversation. Instead, he spoke to the 5th graders at length, while his next appointment, then-Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Corradini, waited.

    In a 2014 autobiography, Huntsman Sr.opened up about two traumatic events during his life: The 1987 kidnapping of his son and the 2010 death of his daughter, Kathleen Ann Huntsman.

    In December 1987, then-teenager James Huntsman, along with a Highland High School student, was grabbed by a fellow student, handcuffed, blindfolded and then placed in a vehicle, according to the Deseret News.

    A $1 million ransom demand was placed to the family, and the call eventually traced to a grocery store, where federal agents converged.

    When his daughter, Kathleen Ann Huntsman, died in 2010, Huntsman Sr. wrote in the autobiography that he was responsible for shutting off the resuscitator to take his daughter off a life-support system. She had had a cardiac arrest and was in a coma.

    "My children say I have not been the same since her passing," he wrote in the book. "The grief over her loss continues to paralyze me when I dwell on it."

    Huntsman Sr. also served as an Area Seventy for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1996 to 2011.

    In an emailed statement, the First Presidency of the Church said they grieved with the Huntsman family.
    "We honor Jon as a cherished husband, father and friend, esteemed as a leader for his exceptional capacity, commitment, philanthropy and service throughout the world," the First Presidency said in a statement. "We express our love to Karen, to their children and family. Jon's legacy of faithful leadership, generosity and goodness stands as a beacon for the entire Huntsman family and many others throughout the world.”

    In a statement, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch called Huntsman Sr. "a committed public servant, a visionary businessman, and perhaps the greatest philanthropist our state has ever known."
    "Utah has lost a lion today," Hatch said.

    Funeral plans for Huntsman Sr. have not yet been announced.

    Both teams shot the ball horribly, but the Runnin Utes were just a little more horrible.

    35% FG just ain't gonna get it done.

    I went to the Salem Hills game last nigh, so I had to watch it late...shoulda went to bed after the first half.

    The Runnin Utes are on a roll, beat up on Stanford and destroyed the Golden Bears.

    '98 Final Four team was in the house for the 20 year anniversary. Really cool.
