Yes, people, there is a football season on the horizon. I know it's hard to believe with all this expansion talk - but it is happening! I promise. In less than two weeks really.
Today, the AP poll was released and our Utes are nowhere to be found in the top-25.
So we made the Coaches and the Media stiffed us in the preseason. Not entirely a shocker, I guess, but still pretty surprising because generally the Coaches and Media poll don't differ that much.
The Utes are, theoretically, ranked 28th. Behind football powers Cincinnati and Stanford.
I can't say I'm not disappointed with this because I am. But what're you going to do? Fortunately, the Utes will have a chance to maybe crawl into the rankings if they beat Pitt - who the AP has ranked 15th. But I wouldn't count on it. Because it seems we're the Rodney Dangerfield of college football. We just don't get no respect.
