So Utah barely beats Utah State at home - a team Utah fans claim isn't very good.
Utah stomps Weber State - yawn.
Utah loses to OSU - a team Utah fans claim isn't very good.
Utah barely beats BYU - a team Utah fans claim isn't very good, despite BYU stomping Texas.
And now, Utah fans think they're going to stomp UCLA.

Either UCLA isn't a legitimate Top 15 team, or the Utes are going to have to get very lucky to beat a much better team.

To date, with SOS already factored in, UCLA is ranked #11 in the Sagarin ratings, while Utah is ranked #32. This point seems continuously lost on you.

It's laughable that you constantly harp on SOS, while completely ignoring the other, more important, ranking.

You do realize, that team rankings are derived by comparing record versus competition, don't you?

Nebraska may not be what it once was, but their homefield advantage is undeniable. Having been at Memorial Stadium to witness a very emotional game for my alma mater, the 91,000 plus make for a very intimidating setting. Although, Husker fans were incredibly classy to start the game( I will always be a Husker fan for the compassion they showed that day), they were LOUD, and very much into the game. That is just one of the reasons they were 18-1 at home until that UCLA loss. I would imagine that RES is pretty much the same. Your home field advantage is the biggest reason I had a hard time sleeping last night. Hope it is one to remember.

Re: Stringer Bell

"Give it up. Mildred in Fillmore has already done this, and better. Your shtick is not original and not funny."

Cletus...don't mind Stringer Bell. Mildred in Fillmore or Chris B. certainly have nothing on you. It's revealingly obvious that you are just as original and funny.


UCLA by 13. I think Utah scores late to bring it close but I think UCLA controls and wins the game.

Another advantage to being independant - there are no "Pivotal Games."
