Episode 63 - A deeper look into Utah's matchup with Fresno State in NCAA tournament

March Madness is finally here! And with that, Utah and Weber State will represent the state in this year's tournament field, with Utah receiving a No. 3 seed, facing No. 14 Fresno State in Denver on Thursday. Weber State, the Big Sky Conference champions, received a No. 15 seed and will play No. 2 Xavier on Friday. In this week's episode, DeseretNews.com writer Carter Williams takes a deeper look at Utah and its analytical tournament odds, where Utah is the probability favorite to make it to the Sweet 16 from the Denver pod of the Midwest Region. Also, listen to audio from Utah players Brandon Taylor, Kyle Kuzma, Jakob Poeltl and Jordan Loveridge as they reacted to the news on Sunday, as well as head coach Larry Krystkowiak. Utah, of course, made it to the Sweet 16 last year before losing out to eventual champion Duke. This year the team is looking for more with experience under its belt. "I think it's big difference as in we've been (to the tournament) before, I think that's the bi...

Episode 62 -

Selection Sunday is just days away and in this week's episode, national college basketball analytics expert Ken Pomeroy joins DeseretNews.com writer Carter Williams in Las Vegas to answer questions about the Pac-12 Tournament, where Utah, California, Oregon and Arizona each advanced to the semifinals. Pomeroy also discusses the NCAA teams in the Pac-12 and across the country on the bubble and who he believes will get in and who can make an impact within the Pac-12 and country. That includes bubble teams such as Wichita State, Monmouth, Valparaiso and Syracuse. It has been a wild ride during the conference tournament season, where teams other than the No. 1 seed won 11 of the first 12 conference tournaments played. Will that upset-heavy trend carry into the NCAA Tournament? Pomeroy answers that too. As well as the teams starting to pull away as national title favorites. This and much, much more on the Deseret News Sports Podcast!

Episode 60 - What should BYU do now that Taysom Hill is back?

Episode 58 - Demario Warrens talks landing SUU head coach job, SUU's NFL prospects

Anyone that has paid attention to the post-season all-star college football games has likely noticed that the state of Utah has been represented well. From Tevin Carter to Bronson Kaufusi, Gionni Paul, Kyler Fackrell and much, much more to Southern Utah University's James Cowser, LeShaun Sims and Miles Killebrew. Cowser (East-West Shrine Game) and Killebrew (Senior Bowl) have garnered some of the state's top attention as the NFL Draft process begins, and are expected to add to the Thunderbirds lone draft pick in history (Brad Sorensen, 2012). In fact, NFL.com's Chase Goodbread even listed Killebrew as a potential 1st-round pick, among those participating in the Senior Bowl this weekend. What do the trio of Cowser, Killebrew and Sims have in common? They were all recruited and/or coached by Demario Warren, who was promoted from SUU's secondaries coach to defensive coordinator in 2014 to head coach in January after Ed Lamb left to take an assistant head coach job at BYU. In this weeks...

Episode 57 - Utah women's hoops coach Lynne Roberts and the 'science' of success

In this week's edition of the Deseret News Sports Podcast, DeseretNews.com writer Carter Williams chats with first-year Utah women's basketball head coach Lynne Roberts about the Utes' turnaround from a 9-22 (3-15 in conference) team last season to a 12-5 start (4-2 in conference) this season heading into a crucial stretch that begins with a five-game home stand. "I think change is sometimes good," Roberts says. "I think it can give you a shot of adrenaline just as a program. I think it was just kind of maybe jolt — change is leadership sometimes makes everybody work a little bit harder — kind of get after it more. ⦠and we got some players that had been injured back healthy and thatâs been huge." Roberts also discusses her path the coaching, which began with an interest in science (following the footsteps of her brothers who finished off post-doctorate degrees) before taking multiple jobs to help her pay through graduate school. "My passion was definitely basketball and I was...
