    Speaking of CB, I enjoyed this thread on Utah's dline thoroughly.

    It was interesting to learn that Sitake built our current D-line. Too bad guys like Kruger, Pouha, Solai, and Misi couldn't have been coached by them. Who knows how good they could've been.

    I love the "not a good cultural fit" references you see there often. It is usually a "they would have wanted to play at BYU but..."

    Then to keep themselves in check they'll note the high academic standards of their football players. Cmon. BYU has no shortage of guys who can barely spell their name.

    There are no academic standards for athletes. But let's not forget that any worthy LDS athlete's first choice is always BYU. As Bronco used to say, athletes recruit BYU, not the other way around. Bronco also liked to say the Cougars have academic standards of Stanford.

    And the academic requirements for regular students aren't as lofty as they would have you believe either.

    It had not occurred to me to check how BYU players did in the NFL draft but a Facebook friends posted these:

    BYU_Drafted_1995_2000.jpg

    BYU_Drafted_2005_2017.jpg

    Lest we get carried away in our gloating, we still beat them only by a single point and needed to win on the final play of the game.

    Sure. Just saying NFL talent doesn't necessarily translate into wins.

    Big deal. Oregon didn't have any players drafted this year and beat us. This whole chest-thumping by BYU because they lost to us by a single point is really small change.

    We were up 7 at the end of the third quarter vs BYU. Then, we went on an 11 minute drive and they didn't get the ball back until there was 2 mins left in the game. Yeah, we only won by one point. BUT, we had six TO's in the first three quarters. Once again, when we needed to win, we pushed them around and closed the door on the game.

    There is a massive talent discrepancy vs BYU. BUT, at the OC position, we had a massive talent...or lack of talent, at the helm. If you go back and look at the games since the PAC-12, most of the BYU/Utah games have been over at the end of the third quarter (two score lead). Credit to BYU for not quitting. Credit to them for fighting until the end.

    But at the same time, the games are never close until Utah lets up at the end. If Utah can have any sort of success offensively, then the games will become even more lopsided.
