    "About as good of a legacy as their Holy war and bowl game victories."


    Not really. The difference is, the Utes are still adding to and building their legacy.

    BYU-P, not so much. The coogs are only trying to live off of theirs.

    When there's not much to write about in tet another mediocre season playing a schedule that is 68th in the country; when you are clearly the third best program in the state, a top 10 list will cause the faithful to forget how far this program has fallen and how unlikely it to ever be more than second best.

    My guess is 14 seasons with 10 wins or more. About as good of a legacy as their Holy war and bowl game victories.

    8. Bushman’s one-handed catch against Utah came during a stretch of time BYU’s entire team was playing at its highest level to that point in the season. It represented outstanding execution by Wilson and even better playmaking ability by Bushman against the nation’s top defense.


    BYU was playing at it's highest level by going 2-3? With the two wins coming against #139 UMass and #166 NMS.

    I would argue it was at the start of the season when BYU went 3-1 by beating #26 WI and #66 AZ.

    #10 and #8 incorrectly read, “against the best special team unit in the nation” and “against the best defense in the nation”. Despite Mr. Harmon’s love, or envy, of the Utah football program, neither of those statements are true.

    How about a list of top 10 BYU 10 win seasons?

    Thank you Mr. Harmon!!!!! We all need to know about BYU's great plays this year. Heck, I'm waiting for the Rutgers beat-writer to post his top 10 too!
