Why do you guys only talk about Ziggy from all the guys Bronco has put in the NFL? Why not cover the dozen or so others like you do for Whittingham's guys he's put in the NFL?

Here is a fun fact: Utah alum playing DEFENSE in the NFL have more touchdowns than all byu alum playing OFFENSE in the NFL combined.

I'm just curious, does anyone know of any other big time programs whose alum have a grand total of ZERO touchdowns on the season? There must be a ton others, but I can't think of any.

Best of luck to all local players!

With all of the countless players that Utah has put into the NFL they must have a number of national championships and Heismann Trophies.

I'm just curious, does anyone know of any other big time programs who have so many NFL stars without a national championship or Heismann trophy in their history? There must be a ton others, but I can't think of any.

"A picture in time", big bad pac12 pride, a picture in time...

If we really want to get a feeling for a school's contribution to Scoring in the NFL perhaps we should look at the past 30 or 40 years.... But then, I don't think that you would like the results... (i.e. Nielson, Wilson, Jimmy Mac, Young, Detmer, Christiansen, Hudson, Lewis, Pitta, Collie, etc. etc.)

It must be tough supporting a program that hasn't had a truly great season in almost 20 years. I can't think of any powerhouse programs that have to go back almost 20 years to find a top 20 season.

@ CB
Do you know that BYU has been ranked in the top 15 since the Utes have 2009 number 12?
