    What the hell was Alabama doing there? Why monkey with the punt return team personnel when you have the best return guy in the country?
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    How far behind is Oklahoma from Utah, do they release the points? Oklahoma is playing two ranked teams to finish out the year and Baylor is #9. If both win out, does Oklahoma pull ahead?

    Again, that call at the end of the half was total horseshit. There's no way they should have put a second back on the clock.

    Not a full house at RES. Shame on you, Ute fans.

    I like whatever keeps Guy Malzahn coaching at auburn.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Auburn didn’t have the punt team on the field.

    Saban is such a whinny little bitch.. He says it was unfair the penalty he got at the end where he had 12 men on the field when Auburn kept the QB in and had him as a WR before they put him back behind center. How about you admit he out-smarted you.

    If Utah wins next week they are in. BYU fans will hate it and utes will drink more of our tears as we watch another 4 years Kalani and we continue to slide into college football purgatory. Sorry it’s just how I see it.

    Go ducks.

    You are probably right. Iowa State and Oklahoma State will drop out of the top 25. Which means Oklahoma's best win will be beating Baylor twice. And if Baylor wins its only top 25 win will be Oklahoma. Utah has been the most consistent albeit against a weaker set of teams. The top half of the Big-12 is better than the top half of the PAC-12. Utah just isn't going up against potent offenses and they are a great team, so of course they look elite. And that's why the committee will probably put them in.

    Utah is not beating Oregon. If they do, I will take great pleasure watching Ohio St. lay 70 on them. The PAC 12 is weak.

    I think the top 3 will stay the same. The domination of Michigan and hopefully Wisconsin will solidify them in the top spot. It all depends on how much LSU beats Georgia by, but I am not sure it will matter. The only open spot is 4. If the SEC title game is close there is still a chance Georgia gets in above PAC 12 Champ Utah. Which will be enjoyable to watch Utes cry for not getting in..

    I could also see Oklahoma and Baylor both jumping over Utah in the 5th and 6th spot in this week’s rankings as a prelude for the Big 12 getting in over PAC 12 champ.

    Ohio State would win, but no one in the country is going to hang 70 on the Utes.

    I don't see a 2 loss Georgia team getting in over a 1 loss conference champ.

    Shockingly, Chris Petersen has now stepped down at Washington.

    Predictions:

    * Peterson to SC
    *Leach to SEC - Ole Miss is best of the 3 openings, IMO
    * Whit to Seattle - this is more a hope than a prediction.

    Whoa. Unexpected. He says he wants to "recharge." So he takes a year off and goes somewhere after that. I assume he stays out west. Didn't he grow up outside of the Bay area? Stanford or Cal maybe?

    Seattle hired Jimmy Lake, Peters(e)n is going to hang around the UW AD office as an adviser.

    Interesting. I just saw the initial tweet. Now I’m back to hoping for Urban to SC

    Ok, maybe.. just maybe a little ambitious. 50.. They’ll hang 50. The Utes have played no one. Only team ranked in the top 25 is SC and they lost to them.

    Utah is a paper tiger. Hopefully we get a chance to see what happens.

    Utah vs. tOSU? We would all be buckeye fans if that happened.

    Utah getting in the playoffs and getting destroyed in the first game might be better than them getting snubbed and playing in the Rose Bow. But still not as good as an Oregon victory this week.

    2 touchdowns not 50. Ohio state has not played anyone outside the Big 10 so we don't really know how good they are either. I do think they are better than Utah but not anywhere near 50 points better. That is myopic.


    Edit: I think tOSU is 2 tds better and probably score between 25 and 35 points

    Ha, BYU is uofutah's most notable win.

    For Georgia, Utah, Oklahoma or Baylor, real pain might be right around the corner

    And if it’s a 12-1 Utah, that would seem the most painful, for it has been one soaring season in Salt Lake City, beginning with what could factor as a key nonconference win against a BYU that finished 7-5 and beat two ranked teams itself.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Not sure why playing only in the Big 10 would be considered an issue. They have 6 teams in the top 25 alone and has beat 3 while they were in the top 10. The SEC has 5 in the top 25.

    Utah is inflated from a very weak conference and lost to the only ranked team in their division that is 8-4 on the season . Oregon the only other team will end up beating them but if for some miracle, they pull it out, they will get ass-stomped.

    Incestuous rankings. You have to prove it with OOC games. The sec and acc have the same issue. Touting wins against other teams in their conference that play nobody out of conference to prove they are good but is not a good predictor of how they will fare in a post season game. The writers think they are good based on reputation, but that does not mean shit other than bragging rights.

    I think the PAC was 2-0 against the mighty BIG this year. Stanford beat NW and ASU beat Michigan State. Did I miss any other matchups?

    These conferences should do what basketball does with the ACC/BIG challenge. I know the PAC/BIG tried to put it together a few years ago and it blew up. But that kind of thing would be really cool in football.
