Skip Bayless On Utah's National Championship Argument


Skip Bayless is one of my least favorite sports commentators, and usually just spews diarrhea from his mouth, but when he gives mention of the Frogs I have to leave my hate at the door step.  He just argued on ESPN's First Take that Utah should not be considered for the National Title because they were very lucky to even make it to the Sugar Bowl because TCU's special teams couldn't get it together costing them the game.  Now, whether or not he is actually giving props to TCU or simpling saying Utah should have lost a game, is up to your interpretation.  But, I'll take the publicity.

Thanks Lloyd for the lead.

I figured I would give an update of the standings with 3 games to go since most of you, like me haven't checked in on them.  This is the first time I have looked at them and was shocked to find myself at the top.  Surely posting these with 3 to play will curse me and I will not keep the number one spot.  

I tried to check other people's picks so I could analyze what needs to happen for who to win, depending on points left out on the board, but I am not able to see other's picks.  So, all I have to say is, Go Tulsa.  Good luck to the others who stand a chance.
