This kind of reminded me of my single days. People would assume that because so
and so is single and I am single we should date.BYU and Utah are
very dissimilar programs during the current coaching era.Utah is
known for running and BYU for passing.BYU doesn't lose to bad teams
like UNLV, Wyoming or New Mexico. Utah does.Utah has had consistently
amazing special teams. BYU loses games BECAUSE of special teams.BYU
doesn't storm the field when it wins games it should. Utah storms the
field quite a bit.
@ downunder.Thank you for your incredible insight on the decision
that went into the invite of the U. I had no idea that Utah AND Colorado were
such patsy schools and were only invited to pad the Win-Loss column of their
superior PAC opponents. Thank you for imparting your superior
wisdom and knowledge.Go UTES!!
Hey cris, you think its funny that kyle is on the hot seat?? whats up with the
LOLing?? its pretty sad actually cause kyle is a great coach. must be all the
4 star recrutes that utah has, they have too much talent to win... Hopefully
kyle keeps his job but if he does get fired, his alma mater would welcome him
back! GO COUGS!
Devonte Christopher? Has graduated. Try Anthony Denham and Andre Lewis thoughJake Murphy compared to Friel? Not even closeFinally,
comparing NFL talent is futile. The Utes lead and it's not even close Can't wait for the game in cougieville
Max,With the coaches on the hotseat were all coaches considered? Or
was it like other articles where its only talking about power programs?My guess is that MWC/WAC/pseudo WAC teams like byu weren't even
considered.Or were there coaches in the top 5 from Conference USA,
MWC, and Sun Belt?LOL
Another thing way different between Utah and BYU is that CBS sportsline has kyle
as one coaches in the hot seat. In fact I believe he was top 5. Bronco on the
CB,The difference is that Utah is NOT feared in the conference and PAC
schools know that they can chalk up the game with Utah as a guaranteed win.
Believe me, Utah is only an afterthought around the PAC Athletic discussion
tables. Utah was inly invited because they needed some easy wins in both major
sports. Utah has been a huge disappointment to the conference. Colorado is
right behind them. Sorry to break the news but it is what it is. Only winning
will change that.
Does the ute fans realize they have only had above average success for 1 yes
count them 1 decade. Not many people paid much attention to them as of late. Not
sure where the over confidence comes from.
As a coug fan being liked the u of u is very offensive. Tread lightly.
@ cbWrong, if you asked the country who won in the "wanna-be"
national championship games last year, most people couldn't tell ya, let
alone 6 years ago.
One additioanl fact...both teams have ignorant fans that make the rest of the
fans from both sides look bad. GO UTES!!GO COUGS!!Health and safety and success to both programs.
@Max,The whole nation knows Utah beat Bama in a BCS bowl game,
capping an undefeated season and finishing with the best record in the entire
country!No one knows anything about byu's new mexico and san
Chris seems more excitable than usual. You ok, Champ?One team is
like the little kid hanging around his big brother and his friends, thinking
he's "one of the guys" but being laughed at behind his back, and in
some cases right to his face. Wedgies are prominently involved.One
team (or specific fans) thinks being invited to join a conference is an
accomplishment in and of itself. Breaking .500 once you get there is apparently
an afterthought.One team points out that it produces loads more NFL
talent than its (former) rival, yet its on-field success in terms of record in
recent years has been sorely lacking. One team might want to wonder how the team
with so many inferior 1 and 2-star recruits manages to win more consistently.
one program goes to bowl games and one doesn't go to bowl games.
Wrong. BYU is a legacy football program that is legendary due to our constant
winning and distinguished NFL stars.
In sending guys to the NFL, Kyle had RECRUITED and HAD DRAFTED over 15 guys. So does Steve SpurrierAnd Nick SabanAnd Les MilesAnd
Chris PetersonAnd Urban MeyerAnd Mack BrownKnow how many
guys Bronco has recruited and had drafted?15? No10? No9? No8? No7? No6? No5? No4? No3?
No2? No1? Still noPart of being a good coach includes
recruiting and developing talent.Bronco has ZERO of his recruits
that have been drafted.ZERONone.Not one
One program has more top 5 finishes. One program has 0 top 5 finishes in
last 2 decadesOne program has more undefeated seasonsOne
program has no undefeated seasons in last 2 decadesOne program has
more head to head wins(and on verge of graduating class SWEEP)One
program EARNED a power conference inviteOne team was approached about a
power conference invite, lost that chance and burned more bridges
