Most of the recent threads are about how the playoff committee will pass on Utah. Imagine waking up on Sunday morning (or worse, posting Saturday night) after your team just destroyed their opponent the previous night, and realizing that it means absolutely nothing. Not because it’s a down year for your team, but because even if BYU was undefeated they would have zero chance of making a four team playoff. That means your primary concern is whether or not your one-loss rival will get a shot at a national championship.
This isn’t even fair anymore. The programs are on such different levels, and that ain’t gonna change unless they get in a P5 conference soon. Even if they grab an occasional win from Utah, it won’t narrow the gap. I almost, almost feel bad for them, and am more convinced than ever that scheduling them is counterproductive.
