Congrats to all these new recruits. It will be an exciting football season.

I think the biggest difference in this year's class of recruits is the impact of being a member of the elite BCS Conference of Champions. Rivals has Utah's recruiting class currently ranked at 24 in the nation. Obviously, playing with the big boys has its advantages.

I think we will continue to see these advantages across the board for Utah's sports in the following years.

Otis...you can grovel and kiss up to the BCS and to Larry Scott all you want but unless you are a perennial top 5 Nationally or even disecting it to within conference perameters... a Divisional Top Dog in the overrated wheaties eating pac...that totally unscientifically inept stat of 24 pulled out of thin air is still an irrelevent...and proves nothing other than it might make some having insecurity issues feel more secure...like sucking a thumb does for a baby. For crying out loud dude. Get a grip ...you've overplayed this tune too much already..and haven't budged anyone who truly knows the real sore.

Stockton,

Please let me offer some friendly advice. No amount of anger, bitterness or jealousy will change the fact that Utah and BYU are on different paths, never to converge again.

We all just need to accept the fact that Utah is now in the elite BCS Conference of Champions and BYU is independent in football and in the WWE in all other sports. Let me extend the olive branch and wish you guys well.

I know emotions run high when it comes to college sports, especially BYU. I should know. I was a student there for 4 years undergraduate and 3 years of law school. I promise you will feel much better if you just let it go.

Very truly yours,

Uncle Otis

Otis, that's bad news for you. 8-5 or 10-3? #25/#26 or unranked? Losing to 2-10 teams or not losing to 2-10 teams?

Riverton, there is no such thing as the AP Top 26 poll, nor has there ever been.

SirTips, good to know, thanks. It would be cool to see one of the FCS schools in the state become a major player nationally soon.
