"my assertion is that playing in a PAC 12 team is not necessarily "playing at the highest level possible"


It is "one" of the highest if he wants to compare himself to see how he measures to NFL talent."

Losing to teams with a bunch of NFL talent is still losing. Losing more than you win is not playing at the highest possible level. It's "losing at the highest possible level."

Losing athletic programs and poor academic institutions like Utah, argue irrelevant minutia.

Established National Brands like BYU, don't need to.

Ziggy was one of the highest drafted players in the country this year, higher even than Utah's Star, but neither Ziggy nor Star will be playing with BYU's or Utah's new recruits.

As far as current players are concerned, remind us how many Utah players were included on national individual award watch lists for this coming season; that would give U a real measuring stick of just how good the current players in your program are, since those watch lists include the top 50 or so players in the country at their respective position.

Once again we see that the Utes are all talk, but no walk, when it comes to nationally relevant performance.

The Utes have NEVER had a national individual award winner, which completely debunks your silly assertion that Utah's recruits will be "playing at the highest level possible."

@daffyduck - "Don't fool yourself, you're a typical utah 'fan'."

Thanks Ducky! I appreciate the compliment.

Unfortunately for U, that's not a compliment anywhere except for under that crimson bubble on the hill.

Congradulations Kavika,

Good Luck this season. Great Choice, but keep an open mind; a lot of time until signing day. If you go on a Mission you have options still when you get back. I hear you have cousin at Brighton HS, Jackson Barton. You can always go to the Utes and play college with him?
