Boy oh boy, what a whirlwind. The fall out from this upset has been shaking the foundation of College Football, namely the SEC. I have never in my life witnessed the division of a fan base like this one. Can someone please explain to me where the insecurity issues within the various SEC programs comes from? I am in awe at how many fans from different programs are weighing in on all of these message boards, and how many SEC fans are sticking up for Bama, while just as many talk about how Bama is overated. Look, Utah is thrilled with the attention that ya'all are giving them. You can argue all you want that Utah wouldn't stand a chance against Florida, Oklahoma or USC, but seeing as how they will never play, it is and always will be speculation. The fact of the matter, though, is that if these fans that degrade Utah weren't worried, they wouldn't even aknowledge all of the redderick. Just the act of getting on a message board and claiming Utah is a lesser program than any other, screams insecurity. The best revenge is living well! That means walk it off, accept the disappointment, congratulate the foe, stop making excuses and look forward to days, months and years ahead. These storied programs need not to lower what we think of them by cheapening their image with tales of disinterest, unpreparedness and a multitude of other EXCUSES! Congratulations to Alabama on a great season, you have many years more of success ahead. As for Utah, simply amazing. Never has the buzz filled the ears of so many, never has the opportunity been so great. Here's to the emergence of a great program, and another run to success.

Go Utes!!!

The excuse have less and less meaning with each passing year.  If a non-BCS teams wins another BCS bowl game next year, all we will hear is:

1. They play no one - look at their SOS - their conference isn't good
2. Our team wasn't up for the game, they really wanted to be (insert Bowl game here).
3. Remember Hawai'i?

Absolutely Fosty, though you and I both were calling them out for it before the game was even played!

Always lot of excuses following losses to MWC and WAC team - never any credit that maybe these conferences can put out a quality team.
