Utah fans are forced to brag about their conference affiliation, because the Utes have done absolutely NOTHING themselves since joining the conference.

4-5, 3-6, 2-7 = 9-18 in football - bowl-less in 2 of 3 seasons
3-15, 5-13, 3-3 = 11-31 in basketball - no NCAA tournaments

The Utes have been a bottom dweller in nearly every PAC 12 sport and haven't even come close to winning a conference championship, let alone a national championship, in any sport, since joining the conference.

The only PAC 12 program on the hill that's even competitive is women's gymnastics, and the Red Rocks now play 2nd fiddle to UCLA.

"The Utes have been a bottom dweller in nearly every PAC 12 sport and haven't even come close to winning a conference championship, let alone a national championship, in any sport, since joining the conference."

By comparison:

BYU women's volleyball made it to the Sweet Sixteen last.
BYU women's soccer made it to the Elite Eight last year.
BYU men's volleyball played in the national championship game last year.
BYU men's cross-country finished fourth in the nation this year.

BYU men's rugby won the national championship last year. (a club sport, but one that Utah competes in and a sport that used to be dominated by Utah's California PAC 12 mates)

BYU is currently ranked #11 in the Directors' Cup, which ranks overall athletic success across all men's and women's sports.

And just for grins:

The Cougarettes have won TWELVE national championships, including TWO last year.
