And the University of Utah continues to dominate the other local schools in the NFL. Here are a few fun facts:

This past Sunday, just two Ute players(Alex Smith and Asiata) combined to score 8 touchdowns, which is 8 times the TOTAL touchdowns scored by ALL byu alum, ALL season

Ute alum playing defense in the NFL have as many; touchdowns as byu alum playing offense in the NFL.

You think recruits know Ute players dominate the other local schools in putting guys in the NFL?

Yep!

You think recruits care that ute players dominate in this area?

You'd better believe it.

Last 4 years Utah has beaten all local schools in recruiting, both average stars AND head to head.

Its a cycle that just keeps repeating: Utah gets better players because players would rather play for Utah, Utah coaches coach them better, and more Utah players go to the NFL. And then the next recruits see that Utah puts more guys in the NFL and it just continues.

Making us proud guys!

Go Utes(the only program with a true national future in Utah)

Rivals:

2014 Ute recruiting average star 2.73
2014 byu recruiting average star 2.67

Or, we could wait until things are over you know, as opposed to bragging about the equivalent of a first quarter lead?

2013 recruiting: Utah wins
2012 recruiting: Utah wins
2011 recruiting: Utah wins
2010 recruiting: Utah wins

And actually, Utah's WORST average star class the last 4 years is BETTER than byu's BEST of the last 4 years.

LOL

Scoreboard!

Rivals does not account for unranked players. Rivals has two ute recruits unranked add those in at two stars and Utah is a 2.61 to byus 2.67
Knowledge of the system is the key to using it.
Check out the 6 other recruiting sources as well.

to blame the Cowboys loss on Romo is ridiculous. The Cowboys are up 26-3 at half time and manage to lose. Go figure. The Cowboys defense is one of the worst in the NFL and Romo was simply trying to salvage a win and outscore the Packers.

Yet why can't the all mighty Utes make it to a bowl game? LOL

I guarantee most Ute fans don't even remember Asiata playing for the Utes or playing for Hunter. I'm really glad for him know him personally, great to see him do well but when Peterson's healthy its back to the bench for him.

jarka-rus,

LOL

You're right, we don't remember our leading rusher in our last undefeated season in which we ended in the top 5 in the nation, and beat powerhouse Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

LOL

You seem, UNLIKE byu, we don't have to go back 30 years to find our last undefeated season.

So Asiata has more touchdowns in one game than all byu alum combined all season?

LOL!

jarka,

So Utes don't remember(and therefore shouldn't claim) him in our prestigious undefeated 2008 season in which we dominated byU, but byU fans all claim and remember 1984?

LOL!

Only one program in the nation thinks they are big time even though they haven't had a single top 10 finish in 15 years.

And that's not the University of Utah!

You'd think a team with so many NFL players could win half their games, or win a conference championship more than once in thirty years.

Asiata began as a cougar.

worf,

And which school would Asiata claim is superior now?

Be smart, you seem to be so bent on proving Chris wrong on anything he says that's all you care about. As a fellow byu fan, let me tell you you are looking a lot more like him than you do different than him. Sometimes Chris is flat out right.

Bronco has not done a good job at getting guys into the NFL and recruits do care a lot about it. Chris is right. Stop trying to argue with him when he is spot on. It doesn't make you look any better than him.

Chris B

Be smart you are right.

An I guess that we don't know which school whittingham prefers. Even though both of them had a choice and ultimately they both chose Utah

Lol!

You are really trying hard, it's funny to watch.

Matt and all other utes: keep dominating the nfl and showing byu fans what it's like!

Bottom line, and no one can spin this:

* The utes are not bowl eligible.
