Utah, they’ve earned it

While the big time win by Oklahoma is easily the story of this weekend, the story of the season has been Utah’s run for a BCS slot.   Yeah, Texas Tech is compelling, as is how tough the Big 12 South is this year, but Utah’s perfect run is a great story, especially since they did recently and with a different coach.  I know you can talk about the ease of their schedule (which I will only buy a little) and the times their offense has struggled, but at 12-0 and a win over probable Pac10 champion Oregon State, Utah is the real deal.

Much can be said about Hawaii’s 12-0 regular season run last year, but Utah has done it while playing a tougher schedule and against better out of conference teams.  Their ‘worse’ win was a 25-23 win in Ann Arbor.

Congratulations Utah, you’ve just earned the right to play the SEC champion loser in New Orleans.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
