Re: QB, Talent, Coaching and Circumstances

I've brought this up before, but here is the three-year history for teams that have won at least eight games in a season: 2019 - 56 teams won at least eight games. That is 43% of FBS-level programs. 2018 - 32 teams won at least eight games in 2018 and 2019. That is 25% of FBS-level programs. 2017 -...

Re: NAR - YBU is COVID U

I find it interesting that BYU has significantly more cases among its student body than does UVU.

BYU 258 total cases among students, faculty and staff for its current term.

UVU - 138
