In the wake of Week 10's devastating loss to TCU, SB Nation's Block U issues a mandate to the program: Regroup and win out.
This season was not lost Saturday. No, there won't be a BCS bowl game. No, the Utes aren't going to win the Mountain West title in their final season - but they still can finish 12-1. That would easily be considered one of the greatest seasons in Utah football history.
They still have a lot to play for these last four games.
That's what what we've got to remember here. As tough as Saturday was, and it certainly tops the list of bad losses I've seen, there are some considerable achievements left for this team.
The first is a win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Though extremely tarnished this season, the possibility of beating the most prestigious program in college football should still excite fans. I'm excited to watch Utah travel to South Bend and leave with a victory.
