Too many here (myself included) and a bunch of the media boneheads are making it out that the Utes were slaughtered by some weaker team and thereby exposed.
I think we are a solid top 15 team but not a solid top 5 team. That being said, Oregon has been ranked ahead of us most of the year and was ahead of us as #6 just 2 weeks ago. Their drop to #13 was a joke. Clearly they had a lull but they were a season long top team and too many are rewriting the season to degrade PAC-12 talent. We got beat by a very solid top 10 team last night. We should have done better but the ranking #s are totally misleading on this one.
Minnesota in the Holiday Bowl May be a different story.
