Default The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I say yes!!

who wouldnt want this game to take place?! The National Championship is to be played for by the 2 BEST teams in the country, and even if USC wins tonight and Michigan runs out the rest of their schedule, they are still the second best team in the country. They go into Columbus and lose by only three. I imagine the tv ratings were high for this game, but imagine if the game is played at the national championship level...arguably the best rivalry in the land. Any real college football fan would want a game like this. I just dont see how you cannot reward Michigan with another opportunity especially after the way they played today. They deserve it....and i hope justice prevails. michigan deserves the shot if they run the rest of the schedule.

I voted no. If USC wins it's last 3 games (Cal, Notre Dame, UCLA) they deserve to go to the National Championship.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I voted no. I'd like to see a re-match but not back-to-back games.

What's sad is that tOSU will have to wait 51 days before they play their next game. The next time the NCAA honchos say they can't have a playoff because it would make the season too long, I'll think about those 51 days between games for tOSU.

Not to be a homebody/fanboy, this is the BEST offense OSU has had in modern history. We've already beat two no. 2's, we'll take care of the third #1 v. #2 matchup in January. We're unstoppable this year.

Troy set the record tonight for the most TD passes by an OSU QB.

To answer the pool, when the seaosn started, I wanted UT, MI, or USC.

I don't feel any of them can beat us now.

I say yes. Its one of the greatest rivalries in college football and nobody has played Ohio State this well all year. It would be interesting to see what'd happen if you gave Michigan another chance. USC hasnt looked impressive, I question Florida still, and both have a difficult game next week.

If/When tOSU wins the Sears, are they going to send half of it to Tennessee so Vince can put it on his mantle?

I vote yes. If USC would have lost to a top team and Oregon St. then they would have gotten my vote. Michigan's one loss is to the #1 team in the nation.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I vote no. I think florida is now the number 2 team and if they win the SEC they should be there. The SEC is much much tougher than the Pac 10.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I've watched enough Michigan, Florida and USC games to know who's the best team of these three.

Florida may play in a better conference, but it's creampuff non-conference schedule is terrible. And the lesser lights in the SEC are no better than the other two conferences.

USC beats Notre Dame, then I think I could live with them as fodder for OSU, but everyone knows damn well that Michigan is a better team.

The rematch won't happen. I think USC wins against Notre Dame and the BCS computers squeek em through.

That said, i voted for Michigan. Unreal game between the best two teams in the country by far. You could realistically say there were as many as 10 first round picks in that game today.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I voted yes. If I was perfectly willing last year to see a tOSU vs UT rematch, I should be willing to see this one. If Texas would of taken care of business this year, I would of been happpy to see it again this year. It should be clear to any college football fan after last nights game, that Texas in their current status could not play with either of these two. Whoever was banging my chops on the other thread, you're out of your mind. I knew after last nights game the "Draft Smith" crowd would come out of the wood work. Get the bug spray.

So USC deserves it because they didnt lose later in the season? Michigan lost by 3 points to the #1 team in the country at Ohio. USC lost to an unranked Oregon St team in Oregon.

Michigan, and USC will only have one loss, and you think USC's loss was a better one? Does that make sense?

When a team loses people have a knee-jerk reaction to drop them 3-5 spots. But really, is Michigan worse than Florida, or USC, or Notre Dame?

I vote yes, that they should have a rematch for the national title game. I want to see that game on a neutral teritory.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

I'd like to see it. Since they won't do a playoff, they may as well make the game interesting on the unusual levels that OSU/MI would offer. Immediate rematch, rivalry, etc.

I do think MI is the best one loss team too. The others have more faults and/or a worse loss.

Default Re: The Great Debate: Should Michigan Play in National Championship against OSU?

Let me get this straight, Michigan, number 2 in the polls before this game, loses to the number one ranked team, on their home field, by three points and another team, it doesn't matter, you pick them, deserves to play in the BCS championship game because their one loss was more impressive than Michigan's?
Thats BCS BS if you ask me. The point of this whole system is to match the two best teams in the country, not two teams in the top three who haven't played each other. Those who say Michigan had "their shot" just don't get that point. I say lets see a rematch, on a neutral site, and see who really is the best team. This is coming from a Longhorn fan, by the way, so I don't have any Michigan bias.
