And 4 total that finished in the top 25. That's an elite undefeated season.
2004, Utah just beat everyone they faced handily. Only one game was even considered close. Both the HC and DC will be first ballot HOF coaches.
Between 2004 and 2008 Utah beat TAMU, UNC, Arizona, Pitt, Oregon State, Michigan and Alabama. 7-0 vs. BCS schools, covering every conference.
I know BYU has had some great seasons, but both of those were unprecedented at the time.
My experience is BYU tries to one up those seasons or diminish them. I think that engenders the smack you encounter.
