GALLERY: 10 things to look forward to as spring approaches in Utah

Mountain Biking -
While autumn may be many bikers' favorite time of the year to hit the trails, the return of spring also marks the return of mountain biking fans from all over. From the single track mountainous trails in the Park City area to the slick rock biking down south, Utah has a premier environment for any level of biker.

We have now endured what was beginning to seem like an eternal winter full of ice storms, fog, and snow. With spring approaching fast and the days getting longer, the excitement of outdoor sports enthusiasts continues to grow. And while we still have over a month until the actual beginning of spring, it's never too early to look ahead to what Utah's outdoor sports environment has on deck.

GALLERY: Top of Utah Twenty: Top 20 Jazz players of the 2000's

20. Devin Harris
Devin Harris was brought to Utah as a "replacement" to Deron Williams. While acquiring Harris was better than Williams walking out and Utah getting nothing in return, he never became the leader Jazz fans hoped he would be. However, Harris deserves a spot for making the transition at point guard after the departure of Deron Williams a little less painful.

It’s rare to see a Utah Jazz list without the top two spots being populated by all time Jazz legends John Stockton and Karl Malone. However, this is one of those lists. This list will focus only on the performance of any Jazz player starting in 2000. So players like Mehmet Okur and C.J. Miles can bask in the glory of cementing themselves into the top ten of a Jazz list. Who makes the cut? Who doesn't? Who is your top five of the 2000’s?

GALLERY: Top of Utah 20: Most Annoying Things as a Sports Fan

20. Jerry Jones
Possibly the sole reason for much of the hate surrounding the modern era Dallas Cowboys franchise, Jerry Jones seems to be above everyone else, even his own team. Money seems to trump football with Mr. Jones, while this may be the case with many owners; Jerry Jones seems to take that concept to a whole new level.

GALLERY: Top of Utah 20: NFL midseason predictions

20. And with the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft the Kansas City Chiefs select…
No matter how well this team may look for small portions of a game, they just don’t have the mentality to beat a quality opponent in the NFL. Look for the Chiefs to continue to rebuild during the offseason through free agency and the draft.

GALLERY: Top of Utah 20: Twenty bold predictions for the 2012-2013 NBA season

20. Boston and Miami dominate Eastern Conference
I predict that Miami wins the East with Boston a close 2-3 games behind. I also see both these teams finishing 10+ games ahead of the third best team in the East, The Indiana Pacers. Look for the Heat and Celtics to run away with the East in the regular season.

20. Morgan (Volleyball) 
Morgan High has a rich volleyball tradition which makes it very imposing to any team visiting the Trojans. Morgan may host the best volleyball venue in all of Utah?
