TheSportsAuthority, you're telling ME about reading comprehension? I don't know how many times I have to ask the question, because I'm not claiming to be the BYU authority and changing my handle to Cosmo. What I was saying was that handfuls of Y fans claimed that the move to independence was carefully thought out and planned years ahead of its announcement. That would mean schedule negotiations with schools, not just creative t-shirt and billboard planning. But then, when their schedule for the first two years of it gets brought up, 3 of you in this thread alone have cried now, "THEY DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO PUT TOGETHER A BETTER SCHEDULE!!" which indicates either bad planning or that they didn't want to play tough teams. I'm not determining which one that is, just saying it doesn't work to have it both ways!

The Utes basketball schedule is what it is, you're beating a dead horse, and I feel sorry for you that it obviously frustrates you so much not being able to enjoy seeing Utah get beat up by good teams while they're regaining their footing.

The difference is:
Utah and its basketball fans admit it when they schedule down, but BYU and its football fans don't. Instead, they spin a dizzying array of conflicting explanations ("We scheduled tough AND bad teams well in advance, but were forced to do it late" Huh?) that leave us wondering if they sustained head injuries while jumping off the Riley Nelson bandwagon.

"Scheduling down" doesn't even begin to describe the depth to which the Utes had to sink in order to give their fans the false impression that the Runnin' Utes were actually "improving".

#336 in SOS; rated a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10 by ESPN

Bookended by a D-III school (enrollment: 500) and an NAIA school (enrollment: 1000)?

By comparison, they make Idaho and New Mexico State look like college football elites, and unfortunately for U, that's not an exaggeration.

Wright State? Really??? How can one say that there has been improvement when you play a bunch of high school teams?
Can't wait for the the real season to start.

Chris B. Mark it down. Utah will finish the season with 4 conference wins. Welcome to the PAC 10.2.
