ESPN drafted 40 teams and now they're putting them in conference named after legendary coaches. The western conference is named after John McKay, former coach of the Trojans from 1960 to 1975. This is what the conference would look like: JOHN MCKAY CONFERENCE Arizona State Boise State Brigham Young California Oregon Oregon State Texas Tech UCLA USC Utah Actually, that's a damn good conference. Beyond that, this was what Ivan Maisel said about the Utes: That leaves Boise State a half-game behind Utah, which is 2-0 in the BCS. Under longtime coach Ron McBride, the Utes moved from good to mediocre and back. In the past six seasons under coaches Urban Meyer (2003-04) and Kyle Whittingham (2005-present), Utah has gone 60-16. Since joining the Mountain West a decade ago, the Utes are 8-0 in bowl games. Among their victims are Alabama, Pittsburgh and Carroll's Trojans (10-6 in the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl).
