Remember where you heard it first.
So not as high scoring as I thought, but still.

They arent going to vote FL in there because they are the 2nd best team now. They are going to vote them in there because they dont want the rematch. After USC lost, Michigan is clearly the number 2 team in the country (I thought they were before USC lost, but I'm a tad bias ).

Being a Michigan fan I cant say it bugs me tremendously though. Like I have said many times. Michigan had their shot to control their destiny and blew it. On to the Rose Bowl to take on the Trojans. Should be a good game. USC has the advantage already. Shorter lay off between games and it will pretty much be a home game for them.

Hewson, great call! I thought the USC/UCLA game would be close, but I didnt think UCLA would actually beat USC.
Unfortunately what probably hurt Michigan the most is the fact that they were idle for the past 2 weeks, which is ridiculous. (ridiculous that voters changed their opinion of them because they weren't playing) But "out of sight, out of mind" comes into play. Florida plays FSU and Arkansas while Michigan sits home and voters say, "Florida is a good team with quality wins" and forgetting Michigan's resume.

There needs to be some consistency in scheduling. If The Mich/OSU game was last week and not 2 weeks ago the voting might have been different.

I can see an argument for either side, Florida played a pretty difficult schedule, though scheduling Western Carolina on Nov. 18 is a joke.

But lets face it, a playoff is the only real way to go.

16 teams starting with this past weekend or even next weekend, using the major bowls for semis and finals could schedule in easily. Everyone play an 11 game schedule, finish by Thanksgiving.

Smaller bowls still get played with the 17th thru 64th ranked teams.

Hell divison 1-AA can do it (Go UMass!) as can divison II and III.

The Rose Bowl looks like the best matchup on paper, should be a great game.
Sugar Bowl is happy to have ND for reatings, but LSU is gonna stomp them so viewers will be gone by halftime.

'cause they're notre dame. and that might not be fair, but it is what it is, and as long as they remain half way competitive, will never change.

alas, until there's a playoff, the entire system is just a joke.

Notre Dame is all about $$$ and ratings for the BCS.

Big national following. They'll always be in the mix as long as they can win 9 games a season.

Let's face it, a #5 is usually out of the national title hunt. A simple "plus 1" playoff is really all you need.

Top4 play one more game, #1 vs #4, #2 vs. #3, winners play for the title.

Wow. That was absolutely astounding.

When I think about Boise State's no-holds-barred, everything-including-the-kitchen-sink approach to their game, and compare it to Michigan's weak-tight-conservative approach to the Rose Bowl, it makes me sick.
