How arrogant is this...

I was reading this an article about a new BYU player on Total Blue Sportrs
the article itself was a feel good story, but here is a quote in the heading of the article that I though was a bit over the top.

"Cougars continue to dominate on the football field, they will continue to claim first dibs on instate recruits, as well as the top LDS and non-LDS talent nationally. In other words, it’s only going up from here."

Not sure what this writer is thinking in 'continue to claim first dibs on instate recruits' yes BYU has done better recently by getting their first winning record in 6 years, but before that they had one .500 record and then prior to that consecutive losing seasons. I understand this is coming from a local magazine, but still the arrogance coming from WE WILL HAVE THE BEST RECRUITS, this is crazy.

Just to let everyone know here I am a University of Utah graduate, and I am not bashing BYU just because, but saying they get top priority for recruits in state is just a bit much. Especially since over the past 5 years the best team in the state has been University of Utah, yes BYU did have a better season but that was a first in a while.

Any team in the conference would be offended by these comments.
