Rick Reilly in Utah's corner

Find me anybody else that went undefeated. Thirteen-and-zero. Beat four ranked teams. Went to the Deep South and seal-clubbed Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

No other team can claim what Utah has this season. They didn't win on a fluke in their bowl game, they didn't play a bunch of scrubs and sure, while a few of their games were close, they don't have to excuse away a loss like Florida, Texas, USC and Oklahoma. Had any of those teams finished undefeated, I think Utah's case would be less than it is now. But they didn't and for that, I have a real hard time believing they are more deserving than a 13-0 Utah team that beat four ranked teams.

Rick Reilly, thank you for this. Now hopefully even more people join the cause. GO UTES!
