P.S. Utah's "nearly" playing in the Pac12 Champ. game had..
... very little to do with Norm. You are discounting your head coach. In fact, Norm cost you that chance with his wonderful performance vs. a Colorado team that hadn't won a road game in 4 years but beat you on your own field. Sure, blame the kicker. Or blame your anemic offense against a bad team.
Your offense was terrible last year. Yes, I'm aware of your Qb issues but you pretend that he made your offense look good. He didn't. Besides that, was he your head coach? Would you hire him as your head coach? No. So then tell me what evidence you have that BYU made a mistake. Go ahead.
