On Utah’s end, it’s brutal. On BYU’s, it’s benign. Everything that happens from now until December for both of those programs must be seen in that light. The days of the win-loss record revealing the whole deal, without context, are long gone. If the Cougars were to end up with a couple or more wins than the Utes, what would that mean, what would that prove? Not a lot. Maybe nothing.
