In the midst of all the Big 12 rumors, the BYU Cougars’ YouTube page released a football legacy video. If you’ve ever wanted all of BYU football’s moments and awards in just 3 minutes and 30 seconds, this is for you. This is a perfect way to get you through Thursday while pretending to be busy at work.
National Fox Sports’ radio host Colin Cowherd released his tiers of College Football teams’ tradition last week and BYU came in at 17. Although Cowherd is considered to be one of the best in the business, that ranking may be a little high. Regardless, the point is that despite recent struggles, BYU is well respected historically from big names.
Among the highlights are several that you would expect. Mangum and McMahon’s Hail Marys, Beck to Harline and Ty Detmer’s Heisman Trophy. With a new coaching staff and tough schedules ahead (regardless of P-5 affiliation), the question becomes: Can BYU get back to the top 25 year in and year out?
Will this help BYU get into the Big 12? No, but this does get us pretty excited about football season. Five weeks from today, thousands of Cougar fans will be making their way down to Glendale, Arizona, for the first game against the Wildcats.
