I don't think strength of schedule should matter that much. Utah is undefeated and without a playoff, we will never know who should be champs. If Florida would have beat Ole Miss or Oklahoma beat Texas, but they didn't.

The other thing about schedules, is that Utah is at a bid disadvantage in improving their schedule. No way would Florida or any of the big boys ever agree to play at Utah. So, in order for Utah to increase their schedule strength, they have to play many more road games. College football is the most unfair sport out their.

Eh, what the Hell, give 'em a share of the title. I used to think not, but they did beat an SEC team that was ranked #1 for awhile.

I don't believe in sharing titles. Right or wrong, if you win the NCG you are the NC. I would feel bad for the team that wins a NCG and has to share it. To me it discredits their year.

Utah

won at Michigan
Vs UNLV
at Utah State
at Air Force
Weber State
Oregon State
at Wyoming
Colorado State
at New Mexico
TCU
at SD State
vs BYU

then went on to a BCS Game to play an Alabama team that was over hyped all year for being in the SEC and had no real offense all season and won with defense.

Congrats. Still to me, you aren't the National Champ unless you're in a REAL conference.

Utah in the Big 12, does not run the table vs Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Texas, Nebraska and Colorado.

They don't run the table in the SEC vs Florida, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Auburn.

They don't even run the table in the ACC vs Florida State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami and North Carolina.

So Utah is a nice cute little story. But they don't even run the table in the Pac 10 vs USC, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State (yes they did beat Oregon State this year, after beating Weber State and Before Wyoming) (Oregon State had just played USC)

Heck, they don't even run the table in the Big 10 vs Iowa, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State, Illinois or Minnesota.

Shiiiit. They don't even win the Big East vs West Virginia, Pitt, Uconn, Cincy and Rutgers or Louisville.

So they are a cute little story, pat on the heads for them. They want into a title game, go Independent and build a real schedule. Otherwise, stfu and play dogs.

Utah deserves to be champs. They did beat the number 1 team for most of the season.

Insane Thoughts.

Utah is a lucky cute little team that played one great game all year against Alabama. Clap, Clap Clap for them, but they are NOT the best team in College Football and that is what the BCS is supposed to decide.
