I love that a Cougar is featured on the cover with PAC athletes...but it begs the question, where are the Ute players? I thought they were supposed to be superstars by now, I mean we weren't worthy to be part of their elite conference, so what's going on? Just makes me wonder if this was a misprint or if somehow, maybe somehow things are looking alright down in Provo.

Maybe he'll be picked in the top ten of the draft and maybe his team will admit four other players were ranked ahead of him. Fine with me. BYU 27-Utah 14 in 2013. The streak is over. Go Cougars.

Grats to Van Noy. He deserves a look.

Notre Dame is probably part of the Big 10 issue. It makes sense for BYU to be on a western conference cover. Why aren't they on the Big 12 issue? Because that is not a "perfect fit", and no amount of phone calls to Tom Holmoe will change that.


Wow, a player is pictured on a magazine. Central Michigan produced a #1 draft pick, that doesnt mean they are any good

The same Phil Steele who didn't have Star picked in the first round of the NFL draft. Don't give much credence to anything he puts out.

Where are the Utah players?

Congrats to KVN. He is a beast.

Dave & Represnt, don't get ahead of yourselves, Utah has owned BYU in recent years on the field and in the NFL draft. To suggest that Utah has somehow now fallen behind BYU in terms of talent just because KVN made a magazine cover demonstrates your inability to be objective or think clearly.

Utah couldn't win half their games.

Ha! A picture on the cover of a magazine. The closest to a major conference you'll get.

let's roll

Congrats to KVN. The fact that he and Cody Hoffman opted to stay for their Senior seasons and forego the draft and the instant payday awaiting them in the NFL speaks volumes about how the players regard the trajectory of the program.

Salt Lake City, UT

Well, BYU owns the magazine cover smack now.

Burn! And work is right, utah can't beat anyone good.

I am failing to see where it says "PAC-12" on it. The magazine has always been regional. Kyle Van Noy deserves respect, even most Ute fans will admit that. I guess DNews will use whatever they can to stir the pot with the Utes and Cougars.
The Utes still have bragging rights where it counts though. On the field.

To the posters asking 'where are the Ute players?' I have two comments. First there are only 4 players on the cover, 3 from the PAC 12. That means 3 out of 4 teams from the conference don't have a player on the cover. Not a big deal that Utah isn't featured.
Second, for a team that has 1 player taken in the NFL draft the past 3 years, you have a lot of trash talk. Van Noy is a great player and deserves to be featured, just like Star was last year and other Utah players will be in the future.
You probably should be more worried about the head to head game this year because when we beat you again, it will be 6 long years without a victory on your side.

Kiper and McShay have KVN going first round (21-27) and he has been getting pub for preseason all american recognition so having his picture on a west regional preseason magazine isn't really surprising. As their editor said, they have such a strong response and BYU following in the west that it made sense, and may have them creating a mountain regional mag just to satiate BYU fans. Obviously I'm a BYU fan (and Georgia) but I really would like to see Utah have some success in the PAC12. I mean after all, if they continue to flop there won't be much argument about who has the best program, and where's the fun in that?

Plano, TX

I think Chris B must have put in a good word for his little brothers. Thanks for showin' us some love, C.B.

Van Noy is a great football player. I'm glad to see him get recognition.

Does that mean the future of PAC12 football in Utah

is BYU?
