Come on man?

How can you credibly argue that the only fact that matters in the "who had a better season" argument between BYU and Utah is who won in September, but then turn around and say that Colorado was better on one Saturday, but Utah had a better season than the Buffs? You can't see that it is just as logical that Utah was better than BYU on one given Saturday, but that BYU had a better season?

Cougs for life and My little brother

You guys still don't get it. The debate isn't who had a better season, the debate is who was better.

I'm arguing that a 44 point beat down is more indicative of who was better because it is based on a head to head objective results than an opinion poll done at the end of the season.

Who had a better season is a completely different argument. I'm not sure how much more clear I can be.

To your point little bro, there are Utah fans that still think like that, and I think that mindset is ridiculous. Personally, I would much rather win the pac12 than beat BYU, but beating BYU, is like a cherry on top. But you know as well as I do, there are BYU fans who's season is made or broken with how thy fare against Utah, especially with Utah''s move to the PAC and BYU's move to Indy.

Get real!

The debate is about who had the better overall season, ergo, the better overall team.

Obviously the logic of "one game does not a season make" is lost on you.

You don't get it.

Polls are based on opinion. It's completely debatable if BYU had a better season. Did they win more games? Absolutely. Does that mean they were better. No. If that were so, then Montana who went 11-3 would be better, cause they won more games.

Some BYU fans on here want to gloss over a complete whipping that their team took by 44 points and say that 10 wins a and 23rd ranking means they were better than Utah.

Some here pound their chest saying we were ranked, we one 10 games and in the same breath denigrate Utah's schedule without acknowledging the FACT that BYU's 10 wins were over teams with a combined record of 44-79, not one of them from a major conference, and only 2 of them were even bowl eligible, including Tulsa who you played in that bowl.

So yes, who had the better season is arguable. Who had the better team, after 44 points in their own house, is not.

So it is inarguable that 3-10 Colorado was a better team than 8-5 Utah, making Utah the worst team in the PAC 12.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Thus making BYU 44 points worse than that, putting your square in the middle of the big sky, about where you belong.

And utah was 20 points worse than Hawaii based on Hawaii beating colorado by 17 and utah losing to colorado by 3 which puts utah squarely at the bottom of the wac about where you belong.

See how we can keep playing this game?

BYU is 3-8-1 all time against Colorado.
BYU is 6-9 all time against San Jose St.
BYU lost 54-10 at home on national TV to Utah.
BYU got schedule hoodwinked by Wisconsin. When is the game at LES?
BYU fans like to talk about how great independence is, yet that's all you have.
BYU masquerades as a legacy program but plays WAC teams on the road, just to fill it's schedule!

Are you sure you want to keep playing this game Duckhunter? Your team is on the losing end.

@the waccer

utah finished with a losing conference record in every single sport but women's soccer last season.

utah's "fan" base consists of people like you.

utah lost AT HOME to one of the worst teams in college football last year.

utah's mens basketball team is widely considered to be the worst team in the nation from any so called "major conference".

utah couldn't even acheive a winning pac12 record last season with a stacked schedule that didn't include the 2 best teams in the conference.

utah currently resides in a trailer park.

utah is currently 0-7 all time against the SLC WMCA

Sure we can "play this game" all you want.
