It's not just in "cougies" minds it was bogus. They replayed it in espn and drew a glaring circle around byu player's knee clearly down while he was still holding onto the football. Who did the utes pay in the booth for that one? It was absolutely bogus and espn highlighted to show just how bogus it was. BYU would have kneeled on the ball after that interception and bogus call, and game over. I won't use it as an excuse because there were things BYU could have done throughout that game to win, but I also won't let u try and pretend it wasn't a bogus call, when replays showed proof that it was.

Sorry, tablet ate my homework.

But in answer to your question, Bronco's real accomplishments are best typified by Kyle Van Noy. You look at where he started his career before BYU and where he is now, and that is the prototype of what Bronco is trying to accomplish. Doesn't grade out on draft day or in close games, but THAT is what BYU football is about. Building men of character who happen to be good, sometimes great, football players.

That's why many of U mock his priorities; that's why many Y fans embrace him.

BYU would have kneeled on the ball with 6 minutes left....when Utah still had three timeouts?

Good call.

@two for
You're right there was more time left than I thought. This call did leave Utah with great field position though, and BYUs offense was moving the ball at this point in the game...the field position was huge though because it was such a defensive game. Bottom line it was a bogus call, and replay showed it very clearly. How a booth official misses that when espn so easily and clearly displays it is ridiculous.

These types of rankings are the only kind of pseudo-victories the cougars have had over the utes the last 3 1/2 years in football.
They can't win in the amount of money the program brings in, the success of their graduates after college football, or in the academic achievements of their football players. The objective measures usually favor the utes, including the 3-0 mark in head-to-head.

So cougar fans, enjoy the "wins" in who Phil Steele likes more and all the other subjective contests.

I'll save my celebration for the victory in an actual football game.
