Let me draw a stick figure picture you can understand.

Place a point on a graph for Utah 2008. Clearly a high water mark.

Place another point on a graph for Utah 2010. I seem to recall that Utah was ranked as high as 5, then ran into a buzz saw and limped out of the season. Somewhat lower on the graph.

Chart Utah 2011. First year in the PAC whatever. Winning season, trashed BYU, but lost to the worst college road team in college football at home. The beginning of Utah as enigma.

Finally, place a point for last year. First losing season, no bowl game, only bright spot a victory over your rival, and you still haven't played the big guns in your new conference.

Connect the dots.

That my friend, is a program in DECLINE.

For extra credit (you need it), true or false: a victory over your rival can make an otherwise disappointing, dismal season both satisfying and rewarding?

Now draw a level line at the bottom, below any point that refers to Utah...That's byu since LaVell left...With things as they are in happy valley, there's no hope that there will be an incline in that line in the foreseeable future.

The fact that you say it does not make it a fact. Or even a very defensible opinion. Last year, BYU had a winning season, was competitive in all but one of their losses, and played in a bowl game. And won! All that without an offense.

Utah had... A victory over BYU.

Fulfilling much? Give you that comfortable satisfied feeling?

I thought so.
