Thats what is wrong with college football. The Titans would be number 1 with we played a BCS format, yet I don't think will win it all. Utah would probably lose to USC but thats USC fault for choking early. Utah outplayed Alabama from the get go and deserve a shot at Florida or USC. We are now playing until 1/9 or so, how about Florida/Okla play on new years and now we play it off. There are always people who will discount the "cute team" especially since Hawaii got throttled last year, but this year Utah took it to a #1 team , not Notre Dame or Michigan.

That's my whole point. Of COURSE Utah ends up with 3 losses (or more) if they play in the Big 12, SEC, or Big Ten. But it is what it is...they deserve a share of the watered down BCS championship. Only if they start handing out crowns willy-nilly every year will we EVER see the GD playoff just about every sane college football fan in this Country wants.

Hell, If Oklahoma beats Florida and Texas beats OSU, I'd make it a 3-way title between the Utes, Longhorns and Sooners.

If the NFL used the BCS system, Tennessee and NY Giants would be playing for the title. This is why we need a playoff. Everyone likes to say Utah wouldn't run the table in each conference, but who knows for sure. Florida lost to Ole Miss in a game in which they were heavy favorites. USC lost when they were heavy favorites. Who really knows what Utah would do, but the don't even get to prove it on the field.

Utah won one game this year of any real merit, and that was against Alabama, and I guarantee that was mostly because the Tide didn't take them seriously. In the Big 12 they'd have lost to TT, Texas and Oklahoma, and maybe Missouri and Okie State. In the SEC they'd have lost to LSU, Florida, and probably Ole Miss and Georgia. In the Big Ten they'd have lost to Iowa, OSU and PSU.

They are a pretty good, top 25 football team, but they are NOT NC material. If there was a playoff, they'd be eliminated. But the BCS sucks, so give them a share. It's what we deserve for having such a crappy system. Hell, I say let it be a 4-way, Texas, Utah, USC and the winner of the OU/UF game.

Don't know about the others, but there's no way they lose to LSU this year. This was a major down year for the Tigers.

Yeah LSU had a down year but in College football you can never say that a team has no chance of winning.

Of course, that means you can't say Utah wouldn't win the Big XII or beat the condoms.

They have a very good body of work--if the Oregon State win is worthless what does that say about Southern Cal, which lost to the same team, and played in a conference where that worthless team finished second?
