Utah and BYU would have to play for another 200 years to catch up with UCLA in national championships. The facilities include the freaking ROSE BOWL. UCLA has John Wooden who dwarfs anyone ever to coach at BYU or Utah. UCLA has world class graduate programs, is highly endowed, and outperforms Utah and BYU in research grants (#11 $436.6 million NIH). Compare that to #44 Utah at $166.5 million and BYU outside the top 100.
IF YOU THINK MAGAZINE RANKINGS OF UNDERGRAD PROGRAMS MATTER IN ACADEMICS YOU ARE A MORON.
You get promoted/tenured based on publications and grants. Nobody in academics gives a crap what the US news and world report says. Utah and BYU are years behind UCLA. If you don't realize this, you are hopeless.
