And one more thing: I'm not sure what your point is with "Utah has won 3 in a row" and "BYU has a .350 winning percentage against Utah over the last 20 years".


As I've mentioned before, Boston College beat Notre Dame in 2008 to top off a 6-game winning streak against the Fighting Irish, and Notre Dame has a .400 winning percentage against BC over the last 11 years.

Does this somehow make Boston College a better, more relevant team than Notre Dame?

I'll be interested to hear your response.

Go Cougars! And (trash-talking aside) best of luck to the Utes! I really do hope they can turn the corner and compete in the PAC. Maybe this will be the year that they break through.

Thank you for the insight. I know you are currently a professor and your understanding of the designations and nomenclature for academic status are appreciated. Your points certainly lend credence to the idea that academics are selectively used as an excuse by the PAC 12 because a potential big payout offsets their "high academic standards", ie, if Texas had signed on, the PAC would have looked the other way at the lesser quality research institutions. I wasn't aware of the current research designations, so thank you for adding your experience and knowledge of the subject.
