"More importantly for Utah fans, will the Utes ever have such access to Utah games?"

deductive:

We learned how to operate VCR's 30+ years ago, so DVR's are no problem today. And for what it's worth, I downloaded the '09 Sugar Bowl from iTunes.

It cracks me up that you think internet streaming is the great answer to the three people on the planet who are eager to watch the cougies lose to Utah State on '10. Of course, maybe there is another market, for all the Y's video replay experts to hone their skills by endlessly watching that last great victory over San Diego State.

Did you have a DVR in the 70's, 80's, 90's? Of course, since Utah football was practically non-existent before 2003, it's probably a good thing there isn't an easily accessible video record of Utah's past.

Concerning the present, however. How about that handful of California Utah fans? Have any of them even seen the Montana State game?

What few Utah fans live outside the Wasatch Front are feeling very left out of Utah's first season in the PAC 12.

"Utah in the PAC X. Where do they finish in conference year after year?"

That's the problem with BYU fans... BYU is a national program, but the fans don't know it yet. For SO long, they have compared themselves to Utah, they can't NOT do that.

How Utah succeeds or fails in the Pac 12, has NOTHING to do with how BYU will do as an independent or how they would do in the Big 12. Let it go! Accept that you have a national program now! The nation doesn't care about cherry-picked stats against the Utes.

"How would BYU do?" is a valid question to ask. If the realistic answer (i.e. not Y Grad's) is "BYU would finish 4th or 5th every year", then it would be foolish for BYU to give up what it has just to join an AQ conference.

You're talking in circles.

What is BYU's record against Iowa State? 0-5?
