      Would one of you with ESPN+ please post this Rittenberg article in full, or at least the portion identifying Utah’s tier? Cheers in advance!

      I’m not gonna copy and paste the entire article, because I’m sure there is some sort of legal reason I shouldn’t, but I’ll go ahead and tell you each school in each tier and what the article says about Utah:

      Tier 1: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, USC

      Tier 2: Auburn, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, Texas A&M, Washington

      Tier 3: Arizona State, Baylor, Iowa, Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Stanford, TCU, Tennessee, UCLA, Utah, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin

      Tier 4: Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, NC State, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Pitt, Purdue, South Carolina, Texas Tech, Virginia, Washington State, West Virginia

      Tier 5: Arizona, Boston College, Duke, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, Oregon State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest

      Other solid, stable programs fueled by player development include Utah, Iowa, Oklahoma State and Michigan State. All four have contended for the CFP or BCS title game, with Michigan State reaching the CFP in 2015. Also, all four either have long-tenured coaches or, in MSU’s case, just had one retire.

      Interesting. My guess Utah was in the 4/5 tier range. Good to see Utes up there in solid company. Oregon is overrated IMO. Take away the 4 years of Chip Kelly and UO is Tier 3 program. Granted UO has an endless pot (pun somewhat intended) of money we all contribute to through buying Nike products supporting killer facilities and high end player SWAG. UO is Phil Knight’s money dump hobby hoping to buy Oregon into a national championship contender.

        From the article: “The goal here is to assess which Power 5 jobs are most coveted by coaches…”
