@BYUCOLORADO "The softness of the (Utah) schedule, which is considered the weakest D1 schedule when you even include the PAC12"

How do you figure that when Sagarin ranks Utah's schedule at 79 and BYU's at 91.

"How do you figure that when Sagarin ranks Utah's schedule at 79 and BYU's at 91."

If you looked closer, you'd notice that Sagarin's record for Utah is 6-8. That's because Sagarin doesn't even include Willamette (Div II) and College of Idaho (NAIA) in Utah's win total. Just imagine what including a couple of teams ranked well below 350 would do to Utah's SOS.

Probably close to the same impact that having Eastern New Mexico would have on BYU's, and not much different from having Northern Arizona already on it.

Utah's SOS in basketball is 79. BYU's is 91....

"You're right about the national championship being the "epitome of major college football." Too bad BYU's has a big asterisk next to it."

Only in the jealous minds of the kids on the hill.

As listed on the Official NCAA Website

NCAA FBS Championship History
Year | Champion | Selecting Organization
1985 Oklahoma AP, FWAA, NFF, USA/CNN, UPI
1984 Brigham Young AP, FWAA, NFF, USA/CNN, UPI
1983 Miami (Fla.) AP, FWAA, NFF, USA/CNN, UPI

Notice that there's absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between the listings for Oklahoma, BYU and Miami

All three schools were CONCENSUS National Champions - selected by a majority of the voters of all five major national selecting organizations.

BYU's 1984 national championship was just as legitimate as any other national championship.

Show me the criteria that says a team must play in a certain bowl or play "x" number of ranked teams in order to be the national champion.

BYU won 24 straight games in 1983 and 1984, including road wins against two Top 15 teams (UCLA and Air Force), and finished in the Top 7 in back-to-back years.

Call us the first time Utah wins 24 straight games.

"Hold on tight to that trophy because that is something BYU will never do again! LOL!"

It's something that Utah will never do, period!

The irony of being "called out" by utah "fans" is delicious to me. It is constant evidence of your hypocrisy.

Next time you call yourself out for your low class behavior on BYU articles, or you call out chris b, naval vet, uteology, howard s, or any of the MANY low class utah "fans" for their behavior then I will take your words as constructive. You won't ever do that so they will simply be forever enshrined as the hypocrisy that they are.

I'll give you Eastern New Mexico and Willamette are probably a wash, but you're seriously going to try arguing that D-1 Northern Arizona (a team that beat Sac St, U know the same Sac St team that BEAT U at home) is about the same as NAIA College of Idaho (a team that LOST to Northwest Nazarene). Get real!

@ Duckhunter

Just because I have a different opinion than you does not make me "low class". Also, unlike you, I don't shamelessly troll every one of BYU's articles. I enjoy talking sports and I provide my opinion and if I disagree with something previously said, I say as much and give rationale. However, it's not my job to patrol the internet and police other posters just because I happen to cheer for the same team. Lastly, the "I won't behave until other people behave" is a weak excuse. You can't control other people, but you can control your behavior...

@2fer

Where did I ever say "I'll behave when other people behave"? I never made any such statement, 1st of all I don't mis"behave" to begin with. What I said was in direct response to your assertion about people "calling me out". My point is that utah "fans" "calling me out" is of no consequence to me, if anything it is funny and hypocritical because they never "call out" the utah "fans" who I simply counter. If any of you ever "call out" any of them, and it has never happened, not one time, then I would give some credence to you "calling me out". That is what I said and I mean it.

But none of you will ever do that, you just told us you wouldn't in your last post. The only ones you'll ever "call out" are the BYU fans and that is because you don't like to read comments about utah that are anything less than effusive praise. Once again hypocrisy on display.

FAX, so you're claiming #281 Northern Arizona as a boon to the schedule strength? It was a post-Christmas game scheduled as a sure win to prep for the upcoming conference schedule, same thing that College of Idaho was scheduled as. I'm not getting into the mindless trash talk, just pointing out a discrepancy in logic.

@ Duckhunter

You don't counter anything, you just troll. Example: "You mean that tremendous, Earth shattering, bracket busting, season saving, widely lauded, upset of the powerhouse utah team couldn't even save this guys job? Unbelievable." It's weird that a grown man would stoop so low just for attention. To each his own though.
