    BYU can't thump any top 30 team. We Utah fans gotta hope for Whit vs Urban. Oh my gosh......what a battle that would be??????????? I think that Montana State would crush lowly BYU.........I sure hope we don't schedule BYU until 2030.......hopefully I'll be dead!

    In recent weeks, rumored phone calls between Ohio State and Utah, the "buy out" Utah made to Utah state..........What Utah fan would not wanna see a "home and home" series between Kyle Whittingham and Urban Meyer? Oh my goodness........that would be EPIC! And, it is in the "works" currently. I don't wanna see "old news" BYU ever again. ARMY football is WAY better than BYU historically......by far. BYU is a WAC team.......and is why they are there AGAIN. One cupcake, Utah State and a Big-10 team............then we gotta play well against the PAC! Gooooooo Utes! Utah will turn heads this year AGAIN, and in the future. I wanna say this..........every darn class that I took at the U was taught by a great professor. Utah taught me so much........a great school. And, I'm honored to have attended there.

    Just because McKay wasn't a significant performer on a BYU team that lost 54-10 at home last year does not mean he can't make it in the NFL. Give the kid a chance.

    .....or we could ask the Duckhunter if the kid will make it and he would end the suspense with the correct answer.

    Utah has a contract(s) with a quality mid-major program.....Utah State, a program that is on the rise, and has huge U of U connections. The U recently bought out Utah State for $500k for 2014. Utah needs one cupcake, a mid-major and a BIG-10 team for non-conference scheduling. The reason Utah hasn't scheduled BYU, is because a home and home series is imminent with the BIG-10. Utah owes NOTHING to struggling BYU. I wanna play USU, not BYU. Their fans are nice. Colorado is our rival now. BYU football is pathetic. I neva wanna watch them play Utah after 2012. Evolution will be of benefit to my desires. I am lucky! Gooooo Utes!

    What accomplishment did I put in there is something it isn't? Am I being called a liar? And I just love the way you guys use the word pathetic when it comes to 18-22 year old kids. Nothing was more pathetic than that team of yours that took the field last year against Utah, don't smack until your team can back it up Mr WAC Champ. You lost to the good teams and beat the bad ones.

    phoenix

    Utah will NEVER run from the Y, the Utes own that program right now. The last ten years the cougs have won 3 games, last year was just the start of domination, The Y doesn't want to play Utah because it is an atomatic loss. Utah doesn't need the Y, but I for one still hope the games are played smack from fans that walked out on thier team are always special. I hope you are there on the 22nd you and y daddy can walk out after half time together and discuss what is wrong. Your team will be 0-3 by then.

    There won't be ANY relevant AQ conferences after 2013 so you're just going to have to accept reality:

    4 PAC wins - 5 PAC losses - 1 BYU loss - 1 B10 loss + 1 NoColo win = 5 wins - 7 losses = NO BOWL for U

    THAT's the ONLY reason Utah is running away from BYU to play a 2nd NoColo!

    U just aren't competitive in the PAC and U know it.

    "You're just jealous that the Utes were only able to win TWO championships in their FOUR DECADES in the conference."

    Jealous? Nope. We're in the Pac-12; aka the first choice of conferences the cougars have been desperately posturing and pleading to get into. You're in the crumbling WAC. I'm afraid the jealousy is on the 10 side of last season's 54-10 drubbing. You couldn't get into the your first choice -- the Pac-10, and you couldn't get into your second choice -- the Big 12. No relevant AQ conferences wanted you.

    All those WAC championships, and nobody was impressed. Two BCS bowls for the Utes, and the Pac-10 took immediate notice. So you're teeming with envy. Ute-envy that is! Own it.

    So if I remember, and as you can tell, I really don't care about the NFL other than watching former cougs to see if they can do well at the next level, I think Utah State had more players drafted this year than Utah or BYU. Point? Inconclusive.

    The year BYU beat Oklahoma, by the way, a team which many Utah fans have since spent incredible energy decrying as NOT a good football team, Oklahoma had SEVEN players drafted. What did BYU have, one? I seem to recall that the year Utah had six or seven players drafted, BYU beat U. Point? Inconclusive.

    That a consistently good team will have a consistently decent number of players drafted is not subject to debate. But the two facts travel in tandem; one is not universally dependent on the other.

    MLH

    Such venom! I'll just say this: Colorado has been pathetic no matter WHICH conference they play in and no matter who they play. And nothing I said cheapens the players who have been good enough to move on and up. On the contrary, I think it cheapens them to try to account their accomplishment for something it isn't.

    There are lots of bigotted people out there. Where's your proof that Tom Holmoe has been making "frantic" phone calls that have gone unanswered by the Big 12? You're hillarious with your clueless prognostications and fabrications.

    btw, the WAC is all but dead, so you're going to have to come up with something else for your weak smack.

    btw2, 25% of the 120 D1-A teams have played in the WAC at some point during the 50-year history of the WAC, including 25% of the current PAC 12.

    You're just jealous that the Utes were only able to win TWO championships in their FOUR DECADES in the conference.

    Pathetic!

    @ uteanymous, there were a lot of reasons why the PAC-10 didn't give BYU the time of day. The same reasons why the Big-12 has never returned one frantic call from Tom Holmoe. Folks don't care for BYU very much. Enjoy the WAC......where you belong!

    "It is easy to accomplish more with less when you play LESS every single game outside of Sept, and then TCU in October. Utah St would have had the exact same record as you had they played that schedule."

    Utah fans love speculating about what coulda/woulda/shoulda happened, and then using their biased speculation to try to disprove something that actually did happen.

    BYU fans can play that game too.

    Based on #34 BYU beating #35 Tulsa, only losing to #17 Texas by a single point on the road, and playing UTAH's schedule, BYU would have finished 11-3, would have won the PAC 12 South with an 8-1 conference record (tied with Oregon and Stanford for 1st in the PAC 12), and would have played in the first PAC 12 championship game:

    #95 Montana State - win
    at #12 Southern Cal - loss
    #39 Utah - loss (non-conference)
    #44 Washington - win
    #41 Arizona State - win
    at #69 Pittsburgh - win
    at #38 California - win
    #87 Oregon State - win
    at #64 Arizona - win
    #66 UCLA - win
    at #83 Washington State - win
    #107 Colorado - win
    #5 Oregon - loss
    #56 Georgia Tech - win

    According to the Ute trolls, Kansas(2-10), should have been the 2011 national champions, afterall, the Jayhawks had the #1 SOS...

    oh, wait a minute, you mean you have to actually beat the teams on your schedule for a stronger SOS to mean anything?

    bottom line:

    BYU(10-3) #90 SOS, #25 Coaches, #26 AP, #34 Sagarin
    Utah(8-5) #49 SOS, no votes Coaches/AP, #39 Sagarin

    but here's the real kicker that Utah fans always conveniently ignore:

    ratings aren't just based on who you beat, they're also based on who you LOSE to

    BYU losses: #17 Texas, #20 TCU, #39 Utah
    Utah losses: #12 USC, #38 California, #41 ASU, #44 Washington, #107 Colorado

    Bronco NEVER lost to a MWC bottom dweller - CSU, Wyoming, UNM, or UNLV
    Kyle lost to ALL of them, and has carried that dubious "distinction" to the PAC 12 - Colorado

    If U want to finish in the Top 25, STOP losing to bad teams!

    btw, #91 Kansas did beat #47 Northern Illinois, which was ranked higher than EVERY team Utah beat, except BYU.

    "Actually, Colorado was invited, then Scot talked to Chris Hill about joining, then they decided to go gang busters, and invite some members of the Big 12,..."

    You're soooo delusional with your revisionist history.

    Colorado was invited AFTER the Big 12 South merger was already nearly a done deal. Why? Because the PAC 12 religious bigots objected to including Baylor, so Colorado was hastily invited to shut Baylor out of the picture, leaving spots only for Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State -- a nice even 16-team league. Then Texas A&M developed Long Horn envy and started exploring opportunities to join the SEC and the PAC 12/Big 12 South merger fell apart. Scott then went to his backup plan, inviting the 2nd best team from Utah, picking up the smaller share of the Utah market and the inferior athletic program, but sticking to the directive not to invite a religiously affiliated school.

    It is easy to accomplish more with less when you play LESS every single game outside of Sept, and then TCU in October. Utah St would have had the exact same record as you had they played that schedule. Maybe even 1 more win against Texas. SUU might have as well had the same record. It is always nice to have 2 byes in Nov to get ready for those 8:30 mountain time games against Idaho and New Mexico St. Any half whit team with that much rest in Nov, getting ready to play those really tough games would be able to accomplish more with less.

    Too smart for nothing,

    Actually, Colorado was invited, then Scot talked to Chris Hill about joining, then they decided to go gang busters, and invite some members of the Big 12, which they KNEW was a long shot, and that some of those teams would stay in the Big 12 or go to the SEC. So according to people in the know, that actually were in the rooms discussing these things, the UTES were in the whole time. No matter if it was the Pac 12 or Pac 16. I know it hurts that the Big 12 denied you, then the Big East denied you, and then made it seem better by saying you actually told them no. Only to try to go back and talk to the Big 12 again, and they say no. They want Notre Dame. The no Sunday thing is hurting the Y. While I am a member, the Sunday play might be the end of the Y getting into a big conference. I really do hope they work something out. The rivalry would be that much more intense if the Y was in the Big 12 and the UTES in the PAc 12.

    I just think that if I go to the U hall of fame, or any other, I won't see a trophy or a plaque for how many players got drafted.

    Yes you will, The list would blow you away. BYU has had many great NFL players and by you making statements like the ones you make about Utah's Hall of Fame it just cheapens the accomplishments of BYU's ellite NFL players. Have you ever heard of Larry Wilson, basically invented the Safety Blitz-UTAH. Marv Fleming and his two Super Bowl rings with Green Bay-UTAH. Alex Smith #1 draft pick first choice of the 49ers-Utah. Daddy if you see our Hall of Fame you will see NFL Championship players, NBA Champions and first round draft picks, World Series Rings, along with others who have contributed to the community and don't forget about that Noble Peace Prize. Don't cheapen your guys they were and are great players which I had the privilage to see play.

    You just keep pumping your chest with that 25/26 ranking and 10 wins. And most of all that Idaho State Championship that you won. The two schedules are not even close and while the Colorado loss hurt everyone that wanted the Utes to go on, that Colorado team was still a PAC-12 team coming from the BIG-12 something you just have no clue of comprehending. Beat that chest all you want have another nice November and we will see you on the 22nd. Expect to leave early again your team is not even close to being the calliber of the team Utah is.

    Y Grad/Y Dad,

    The point of preparing players for the jump to the NFL is so the whole team is stronger, faster, hungrier and leaner. All games are won decisively, players play with greater poise and focus, and the quality of wins increases dramatically. Following this approach would help the Y in better recruiting, greater team cohesivness, and allow them to grow into a national powerhouse in football that every team, in every conference respects. How is beating the likes of Idaho State and San Jose State a positive? BYU wants to be playing the big boys every week. Until the team develops into an NFL draft powerhouse (think Alabama, Michigan, etc), their dreams of consistent national media and football respect will only ever be a pipe dream with occasional glimpses of greatness.

    So by your own "no sugar-coating it" rational:

    The only fact that matters is U couldn't even win a pathetically weak PAC 12 South because U got beat down at home by one of the worst teams in the country and Utah's supposedly "new rival".

    The Buffs DOMINATED the Utes from the start, leading at halftime, 10-0, with a 254-39 total-yardage advantage and an 11 1/2-minute edge in time of possession. Unfortunately for U, Utah's FG kicker, who only a few weeks earlier had saved Utah's bacon in the snow at hapless WSU, failed miserably against Colorado.

    For the 2nd time in Kyle's brief 7-year head coaching career at Utah, K-Whit lost to a 10-loss team. That's as many losses to 10-loss teams as BYU has had IN THEIR ENTIRE HISTORY!

    After BYU's early September meltdown, BYU finished the season 9-1, with a bowl win over #35 Tulsa.

    After BYU's gift, Utah finished the season 6-4, with that ugly loss to #107 Colorado, and a near bowl loss to #56 Georgia Tech.

    8th place - get used to it!

    And I think that you just illustrated that the only fact that matters to U is an admitedly impressive thumping of the team U just can't get over.

    As for BYU, there were several defining moments last season, or if you prefer, "facts that matter." By and large, they point to a decent, not great season. Decent! Decent!! How many schools can you think of that would think being ranked in the top 25 was more than "decent."

    Apparently not U, though. The only fact that matters is you beat the team you supposidly no longer care about. And I think therein lies the difference - Utah had an otherwise pretty mediocre season, but U are thrilled because of one triumph. BYU had an otherwise pretty good season, but we are still irritated by one loss.

    There is a reason neither he, nor any other BYU player has been drafted...again.

    Yeah, you're right----it's hard to have another 10 win season and be ranked in the top 25 once again, especially when it was accomplished without being a member of a "BCS Conference."

    The only thing harder to watch than that must have been the game at Utah against Colorado that cost the Utes the opportunity to appear in the Inagural PAC 12 Championship game; you know, the game that was possible because the PAC 10 expanded asking Colorado first, then 5 BIG 12 Teams that told them what they could do with their invitation, so out of desparation they invited Utah and GREASED their way to the tournament game. All the lowly Utes had to do was defeat Colorado (worst team in collegiate football) on their home field in SLC. Wasn't it interesting that after a single year Doman stayed in place and Chow left the supposed miracle program? My, why couldn't Kyle hang onto an alumnus that drooled over coaching the Utes? Interesting...

    Jacobson will be selling cotton candy at SF 49er games with Max Hall this fall. Their buddy Alex Smith got Hall his job. Good luck McKay!

    BYU!--Utah's best in football:

    * most wins in the past six years
    * most TV coverage

    BYU! Basketball:

    * same as above

    BYU'S total sports program?

    What the heck? The pride of Utah.

    There are still very few comments on the bergstrom articles and almost none from BYU fans, and none that are negatives about bergstrom. There are none at all about the utah players that signed free agent contracts.

    Are you few utah fans that actually doubt which fan base and which posters are the lowlifes aoround here paying attention? Stg are you paying attention?

    Let's say he's got descent speed not blazing speed but he's 5'10???? YOu know how many Wes Welker's there are? One! And Jacobsen is no Welker.

    "I didn't realize there was a demand for slow white receivers in the NFL. An arena league career is more likely."

    I guess you haven't been paying attention. Believe it or not, Jacobsen is FAST! But you are right that he is white, so one out of two ain't bad.

    @Chris B,

    I know that saying ridiculous things to get a rise out of BYU fans is kind of your thing (at least I hope it is, because if you really believe some of the things you post, then that's just sad), but you really ought to be careful about making comments that reflect poorly on your own team. Calling Jacobson "unathletic" would mean that about 95% of your Utes are also unathletic.

    For the record, I hope McKay makes it, but I wouldn't put any money on it.

    WHYGRAD?/WHYDAD?,

    Sorry but the facts don't support your opinion. In the last 5 years 14 Utes drafted by the NFL 4 Cougars. Don't you hate when facts ruin your post??

    >Hedgy, but K-Whitt's draft numbers have dropped off drastically, so obviously that means that he is in his declining years, right?" Ygrad

    I suppose you can say KWhitt's numbers dropped off from a NCAA leading 6 draft picks as you can say bronkos numbers held steady at zero.

    Wish the best for Jacobsen--he had some memorable catches for BYU, including the game winner at Oklahoma.

    "How's the PAC 12 Championship Game? Did you enjoy watching UCLA get creamned by Oregon? Get used to watching that game from home".

    How's that November schedule going for you? Did you enjoy watching WAC teams and having two November byes last season? Get used to that cupcake November schedule because that is the best the cougs can do.

    Hedgy, but K-Whitt's draft numbers have dropped off drastically, so obviously that means that he is in his declining years, right?

    Seriously, as Ive gone back through last season, Jacobson had decent numbers with Riley. Still wasn't the production we hoped for from before his mission, but he actually made some big plays for BYU this last season.

    Just ask Utah State.

    Way to go Mckay! Sorry to the rough end of your BYU Career. Good luck out in the pros.

    Mckay Jacobsen is every bit as athletic as anyone on Utah's squad by the way. He may not have been able to showcase his play-making ability in the later part of his career but he's no less athletic than any player the Utes have.

    Bronco has not had a player drafted that he has recruited as the Head Coach at BYU - 1 player (Unga)was taken in the Supplemental Draft.

    During that same time, Whittingham has had 17 players drafted - 9 in the last 3 years, representing his recruits.
