    It's fun to be a Ute fan again. Even the basketball team won last night. Keep it up guys!

    If we have a three way tie, Arizona State comes out it. The 2nd 3-way tie breaker is the division record. In a 3-way tie, Arizona State will have 3 or 4 division wins. UCLA will have 1 or 2 division wins. Utah will have 3. UCLA will be eliminated by division record and Arizona State will win the head to head over Utah. So, Utah fans, please stop posting that we could get through a 3-way tie. We can't. The only way we can represent the Pac 12 South is to win twice, ASU lose twice, and UCLA lose at least once. If UCLA wins out, they win the division, either outright or in a head to head with ASU.

    Brad, Washington State is probably better than Arizona and Oregon State. It was never one of the worst two teams in the conference, at least not by Sagarin or Massey this year.

    Two words why the Rose Bowl is not a possibility: Oregon Ducks

    Even as good as our defense is the Ducks have too much offense for ANY PAC-12 team to keep up with.

    I'm hoping we win out and get a Sun Bowl invite vs FSU/VT/GT.

    Conf. title game is still possible under this scenario. Utah needs to win twice, have ASU lose twice, and UCLA lose once. Utah would win any tiebreaker with UCLA by virtue of Saturday's win.

    So technically a Rose Bowl is still possible yet highly unlikely, as long as we are throwing around the possible bowl scenarios...

    Only Brad Rock could manufacture something like this. What is this? I don't know, it's just so Brad Rock. He combines the deep, the comic element, and the obvious to induce something on planet Pluto.

    Brad you keep us reading and the your employer knows that much.
