There is right and there is wrong. And what's right is the University of Utah's football team getting voted #1 in the AP poll. It is hard for me to blog about this since I hate the Utes with all of my heart. But let's look at this.
1. Utah is the only unbeaten team in College Football.
2. Utah beat 4 top 25 teams including two teams that will end the season in the top 10.
3. Utah pounded Alabama. This is the same Alabama that was #1 for 5 of the last 6 weeks of the season. This is the same Alabama that almost beat Florida who is going to the championship game. This is the same Alabama that only lost one game in the SEC. Utah didn't just beat Alabama, they BEAT UP Alabama.
So the way I see it, if Florida beats OK on thursday then how can the AP give the #1 spot to anyone other than Utah? Now if OK destroys Florida then that's that. But Florida is good enough (I think they are the best team in College Football) that it should be a close game.
What a wonderful world we'd live in if we woke up Friday morning and the Utes were #1 in the AP poll. What a fantastic argument for a legitimate playoff. So just this once, I'm pulling for you guys. You deserve it.
