Ted Miller of the ESPN Pac-12 blog has been publishing fictional accounts of 'dream' and 'nightmare' seasons for the Pac-12 teams, and has finally gotten to Utah. It's worth noting that his stories makes an effort to be realistic; no team yet has gone 12-0. Do you think the highs are too high, or the lows too low, or something else we haven't mentioned?
I think 11-3 with losses to Cal (?), Arizona, and Stanford in the P12CG is a very good season, and I would be ecstatic if we got there... but I think it's selling the 'best case' Utes short to say they couldn't pull out a lucky upset against Stanford or Oregon (or, as likely, a lesser Pac-12 North team squeaks into the championship game and we manage to beat them).
My 'realistic' best case Scenario is 12-2 with a win over OSU, Wisconsin, or Michigan in the Rose Bowl. What's yours?
