Why should anyone care more for the last 5 years than for the last 30? Only next season matters, and until it comes, last season is the next most important thing, but in terms of half-life? It's already half gone.

But for the record? U beat the Y and finished with a losing record and no bowl game. We lost to our (ex) rival, again, had a frustrating but winning season and won our bowl game.

Which would you rather have, really?

You said: "Why is it anyone cares about what teams did almost 30 years ago".

Because Tradition, Legacy and Brand take Generations to establish, not 5-6 years.

Some teams are instantly recognized as football programs with great Tradition and Legacy (BYU).
Some teams are not
(Utah).

As for you Naval Vet....Tedious and Sad at this point. Nobody cares.

Honestly I would rather have Utah's season. For this simple fact. Neither had a great season and had the schedules been switched Utah would have winning season and bowl game and the Y wouldn't have. Either way however Utah wins head to head again so I would take their season.

"Neither had a great season and had the schedules been switched Utah would have winning season and bowl game and the Y wouldn't have."

Pure speculation; you have absolutely no proof that would have been the case.

Utah earned one-game bragging rights, BYU had the better season. I'll take the better season any day over a one-game flash-in-the-pan, but that's what we've come to expect from the kids on the hill.

btw, what good is having 2 bcs wins, if you're still on the outside looking in at the most prestigious fraternity in all of college sports -

Major College Football National Championship Winners

As much as jealous Utah fans would like to pretend that it does, being in the same conference as USC will NEVER elevate U to national champions status. That's something U have to do on your own.

Good luck with that when U can't even beat a conference foe with a winning record.

I hope it wasn't just a fluke of a good game that he was playing when they played 2J's team. I fear he normally doesn't play that well and 2J just saw him on his best day.

RE:965

You sure you want to call BYU fans jealous? Maybe you shouldn't try to lecture in a condescending way. When you look at the record see if you notice a discrepancy from what really happened and what you claim.

I guess it needs to be explained to you, 5-7 is as losing year.

LOL!

Who do you think you're fooling?

Give Kyle three straight 5-7 seasons with no bowl and Utah fans will be screaming for his head.

Bronco at 8-5, with wins over a Top 25 team, a decent Georgia Tech team on the road, and a very good San Diego State team in BYU's bowl, and one of the best defenses in the country, was at least on the cusp of having a very good season.

On the other hand, Kyle, even with his lucky win over BYU, had a horrible season.
