All quarterbacks will be on trial this year since the sandpaper test doesn't apply anymore (being tough and gritty is all that counts).

How many top 5 finishes, BCS wins and undefeated seasons does Kyle and Bronco have? You seemed to leave this off your listing for some reason. Can you list this for us as well?

"Hill will have to prove that he can produce with his arm, not just his legs. His ability to run will be less valued by Anae and Beck than it was with Doman."

I don't entirely agree. If you look at the most productive QB's in the college game today, and the new crop of QB's in the NFL, the duel threat QB is highly prized. The fact that he is really a good runner is a valuable asset, but shouldn't be used as a "staple" as was the case with Nelson. We know that Hill has both a better arm and better feet than Nelson. He just needs to improve his accuracy a little bit. The coaches need to develop the passing game as a high priority, but you can bet that the coaches will love his ability to get the first down with his legs occasionally. They would be stupid not to.

One good season out of eight, just like one good game out of twelve, doesn't define dominance.

More consistent Top 25 finishes = better program

Bronco has finished in the Top 25 five of eight seasons - 63%
Kyle has finished in the Top 25 three of eight seasons - 38%

There's a reason Bronco more consistently finishes in the Top 25.

Unlike Kyle, Bronco never loses to bad teams like 10-loss UNLV or 10-loss Colorado.

@Y's little brother "There's a reason Bronco more consistently finishes in the Top 25."

You got that right, and that reason is cougies play 2-3 tough games in September(L's) and the rest the season vs a bunch of powder puffs!

"More consistent Top 25 finishes = better program"

Says who, Y fans? If I was told over the next 8 years or for that matter anybody but maybe cougie fans was told. Their team will go undefeated twice play in and win two BCS games or 5 of the 8 years they will finish around 25 ranking with a 9-3 to 10-2 record with no wins against top teams and a bunch of wins against bad teams. It would be a no brainer anybody would take the two undefeated seasons and two BCS titles.

Stop being jealous give credit where credit is due. It's obvious Kyle has accomplished more as well as been more successful head to head than Bronco!
