Michigan v. Ohio State: Will they meet twice this year? - Page 7

post #91 of 120
The rematch for OSU and Michigan should have been in the Big 10 title game, which, of course, doesn't exist because the Big 10/11 won't add a team in order to create a conference championship game. The SEC had a title game, which Florida won. The Big 10 shouldn't ask the rest of the country to sit through a rematch game they should have settled themselves.

How come the strength of schedule came to the defense of Florida this year but in 2004 Auburn ran the table and had the toughest schedule in the land. Oh well, Florida doesn't stand much of a chance. The Rose Bowl should be the best game.

Troy Smith has won the Heisman as we knew he would. I expect him to have a huge game against Florida.

none.

Adrian Peterson returns and this may be the biggest laugher in the history of the BCS. After OU puts up 60 on BSU, hopefully they're humiliated enough that they vow never to play in a BCS game with their farce of a team.

If there was a Big 10 title game, UM and OSU wouldn't have been playing in it. The B10 East champion (OSU) would have played the B10 West champion (Wisconsin) which they didn't do during the regular season. UM wouldn't have been affected by this scenario, if OSU won. If OSU won, they would still be playing Florida in the national title game, but if they lost there would have been a SERIOUS problem. In this case, UW gets the automatic bid to the BCS, and would likely play in the Rose Bowl against USC. That much is fine, BUT how do you decide who gets the ONE BCS bid remaining for the BCS, OSU, who was undefeated until the B10 championship game and beat UM on the field, or UM, who would be higher in the rankings, most likely? The B10 is better off the way they are, at least for now. Just for argument's sake, the new B10 would look something like: B10 West: Wisconsin Iowa Northwestern Illinois Minnesota Missouri, Iowa State, ND, or whoever? (not sure if ND would count as B10 West, or how they would slot them if they chose to enter the B10) B10 East: Ohio State Michigan Michigan State Penn State Indiana Purdue The problem with adding a 12th team is that there aren't very many schools that fit the B10's educational and athletic profile. ND and Missouri are about it, Missouri is in the B12, but has a natural rivalry with Illinois, ND would be a decent fit but has refused to join to date. Rutgers, Syracuse, Pitt, and some others have been discussed as well but who knows. Pitt would be decent in both BB and FB but probably won't leave the BEast and they have a natural rivalry with WVU, so that may not work. Just for fun, take a look at the money sport rankings at the moment: ESPN College Football Rankings: 1. OSU B10 2. Florida SEC 3. Michigan B10 4. LSU SEC 5. Wisconsin B10 6. Louisville BEast 7. USC PAC10 8. Oklahoma B12 9. Boise State WAC 10. Auburn SEC ESPN College Basketball Poll: 1. UCLA PAC10 2. Pittsburgh BEast 3. North Carolina ACC 4. Ohio State B10 5. Florida SEC 6. Duke ACC 7. Wisconsin B10 8. Connecticut BEast 9. Alabama SEC 10. Wichita State MVC Football: B10 3 SEC 3 BEast 1 B12 1 PAC10 1 WAC 1 BBall: ACC 2 B10 2 BEast 2 SEC 2 MVC 1 PAC10 1 Florida, OSU, Wisconsin only teams to have two top ten teams.

Too bad USC didn't play like this against UCLA... TBH UM's weakness is Lloyd Carr, though, IMO. They have superior athletes but have been terrible in bowl games and against OSU of late. Carr is a terrible game day coach. Not being a UM fan, though, I don't really care. My Badgers won so I'm happy

As was said.

Yet isn't it funny how, with the exception of last years rose bowl, they've been considered the underdogs in almost all of the recent bowl games?
