        It was fair to both sides, it just seemed worse since they finished with the SC hype and then had their two USC “commentators” pick them. But if you really watched, Urban got the last laugh. Take the 41-7 Utah advantage over the last 3 quarters and don’t worry about TV being TV.

        Now if you really want to worry about something, how about asking why the CFP committee won’t have the huevos rancheros to put Utah in the top 4? Maybe it’s just me but handling the consensus #4 team in the country – led by the presumptive HEISMAN trophy favorite in case you missed it – twice in one season is better than any result any other team can claim.

        I hate these binary opinions. No one is saying Rising is the best ever and no one is saying he sucks.

        He’s somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of his peak effectiveness right now. Any speculation is on whether that will be enough because it wasn’t against Oregon.

        Unfortunately, there really wouldn’t be any chaos. At this point, USC is the only team that would fall out since you would have four one-loss teams. TCU, Michigan, Georgia, Ohio State would be your 4 with the order being decided by how bad each team lost in their CCG.

        There isn’t a chance that 4 loss Purdue or 3 loss Kansas State/Utah get in. It would be fun to see the committee try to justify 3 loss LSU (who lost to 5-7 A&M) just because they beat Georgia but I don’t see it happening. So you are really just down to the 2 loss ACC champ and Ohio State as being able to move into the top 4.

        I’m pretty sure it’s a reference to the brouhaha about the two girls who walked around in body paint earlier in the season.

        I’m not sure why people keep saying that Bernard is leaving after this year. He was in the class of 2019 so he should have two years of eligibility if he wants to use it. And while I love his skillset, I don’t think he’s done enough to warrant a high draft grade at this point.

        3rd down backs are a dime a dozen in the NFL. Maybe if he had shown elite return capability he could get a look but I think he definitely needs a full healthy season as the lead back

        you’ve recovered? Any time the team gets down two scores early I expect to see the ghost of Andy Dalton run all over the place.
