How sweet it is to be 13-0 and the only undefeated football team in the country!

What a win! What a season! The only UNDEFEATED team in the country! All this talk of how a team from Utah can't even hold an SEC team's jock. All this talk of how physical Alabama was, how we were about to face a "real" team. Screw you Barry Switzer! Screw you Saben! Screw you ESPN! 13-0! GO UTES!!! We have the longest winning streak in the country. We have the longest bowl game winning streak in the country. We were the first non-BCS school to go to a BCS bowl, and we are now the first non BCS school to win TWO BCS games. Alabama had 33 carries for 31 rushing yards. Alabama had allowed 17 sacks all season, and Utah had 8 tonight.

Utah has four wins against top 25 teams, and two wins against teams in the Top 10.  NO other team in the country has that kind of resume.

There were shirts in New Orleans that said that Utah was from the WAC and not the Mountain West Conference, and evidently, there were clappers and other assorted items they were going to give to fans at the game, but they spelled UTES as UTHES.  Once they were informed of the printing error, they stowed them away and didn't give any out.  That's not as bad as when after the Fiesta Bowl in 2004, the scoreboard read "Congratulations UTAH STATE" after we beat Pittsburgh.

Nick Saben of Alabama said that his team was the only undefeated team from a "REAL" BCS conference to go 12-0.

“I know where I’m voting us. I’m voting us No. 1. End of story,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said afterward.

“I don’t know why they wouldn’t deserve that consideration,” he added later. “Somebody has to explain to me why they wouldn’t. There is only one undefeated team in the United States of America right now in Division I football, and it’s these guys right here.”

“What else do we have to prove?” Johnson said. “Without question, we’re one of best, if not the best team in the country.”

“They jumped ahead of us early in the game. I don’t think we gave them their due respect coming into the game,” Coffee said. “That’s something we never should have allowed to happen.”
