Share “Thumbs up & thumbs down”

By John Rohde Published: January 7, 2009
To the Utah Utes, this year’s lone unbeaten in Division I-A. You Utes beat everybody you played. You beat three in-state teams (BYU, Utah State and Weber State). You beat everyone in the Mountain West. You beat the Big Ten (Michigan). You beat the Pac-10 (Oregon State). You beat the SEC (Alabama in the Sugar Bowl). Good thing you didn’t play the Big 12.

To Texas coach Mack Brown, for complaining about the rules. There was an agreed-upon system that put Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game, and there is an agreement between the AFCA and the BCS to vote the national championship game winner at No. 1 in the final poll. You can hold your breath all you want to, Mack. You’re still not getting your way.
