"I have heard from more than one source that a few university presidents are still bitter about Prop-8."

Nope. The Prop-8 issue was THIS century. The cougars hadn't been wanted extending all the way back to the LAST century.

Your bcs obsession has blinded you to the overall picture.

Bronco/Kyle era

Top 25 Finishes
Bronco 5
Kyle 3

Top 15 Finishes
Bronco 3
Kyle 1

Conference Championships
Bronco 2
Kyle 1

10+ Win Seasons
Bronco 5
Kyle 3

Losses to 10-loss Teams
Bronco 0
Kyle 2

Overall Record
Bronco 66-24
Kyle 65-25

Kyle had ONE great season in 2008, but overall, Bronco has outperformed Kyle; the overall record speaks for itself - BYU has been the better program during the Bronco/Kyle era.

btw, if Top 25 finishes are such "mediocre" accomplishments, why has Utah only managed SEVEN Top 25 finishes in their ENTIRE HISTORY?

Bronco has almost that many Top 25 finishes in his first seven years as BYU's head coach.

Levi,
You just can't seem to get those blue goggles off can you?
Your "stats" from the wayback machine have been reported many times by many other cougars but here it is 2012 and your Coach and AD are playing the media to get games with the Utes in order to stay relevent, locally with recruits and on the national scene.
That my friend, is the "overall picture" you're missing.

The WCC is the ideal home for BYU; high academic standards, faith based environment. Winning is a by-product of their standards, not the prime object. Other conferences are adopting the SEC as their model; exploit athletes at the expense of institutional integrity.

Levi LOL thank you for proving my point. Why do you list top 25 finishes and top 15 finishes but stop there? Why don't you list say top 10 and top 5 finishes also? It wouldnt be becasue the Y would show 0 would it? Why didn't you list head to head? Why didnt you list records against BCS teams? Why didnt you list wins against teams with 10 wins and instead just losses against 10 loss teams?

Again anybody can make a list to make their team look better by selecting only stats they choose. If you look at the overall picture in the last 10 years 2BCS wins and 2 undefeated seasons far out way's anything the Y has done my friend. Ask anybody that is not a Y fan and they would give you that same answer. I'm sure you think the Y has been better than TCU the last 10 years also, right?

Whatever.
If that was true. The PAC 12 would have thrown its standards out the door for Texas, OK & OK St. to join.

My goodness yes - why wouldn't the Y be happy with the WCC conference and Independence in football. First fans get to see power house football teams come to Provo like Idaho and Weber State. Wow - got to love those big time teams coming to town. The Armed Forces bowl - well geez everyone knows that this is one of the premier bowl games in the country along with the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise. As for basketball - what a thrill it is for the Y to go on the road in the WCC and play in front of 4000 fans!!! Yes BYU has sure hit the big time with the WCC and Independence. BCS here we come!!!

I know for a fact any BYU fan would be doing hand stands if the Y dumped the WCC and independence and got an invite to the Big12. Be real people. Getting to play Texas and OU in Provo instead of Idaho and Weber St??? You decide.
