Do you need help understanding the multicolor chart provided in the article?

FYI: You might want to read the post by Danish American. BYU, I believe, won 2 NIT championships when the NIT was the premier post season tournament.

I would venture a guess that MOST people around the nation think University of Utah and Utah State University are the same school. Outside of our region they would be hard pressed to name any accomplishment that the Utes have made. Given there introduction into the PAC12, that one game against Alabama may remain as the greatest school achievement in football.

BYU on the other hand is instantly recognizable because it has a global reach.

Would BYU "jump" at the chance to go into the PAC 12? BYU didn't jump at the chance when they had discussions with the Big 12 which is a deeper conference football wise than the PAC. No, BYU as an institution is better off independent. Sure many fans wanted PAC membership. However, aligning with the PAC lessens exposure for the program. It also would mean no TV rights, which was the likely deal killer with the Big 12.

"BYU fans appreciate a great basketball team by supporting it.

No matter how you cut it, BYU basketball is a big time program.

Here's to another great season to come!!!"

Except, of course, when it comes to what truly matters, The NCAA Tourney....NCAA Leader in Tourney appearances w/out ever reaching The Final Four, for a reason!
