i'm gonna have to check with cal and see how he'd like to wager a new 'tar for the holiday bowl

21 vs 22 is a good matchup

I have a feeling the holiday bowl will be a blowout. Either Cal will play the way they have for the past ~5 weeks, and get blown out. Or they'll play like a top-10 team (like they did for a few weeks) and blow out A&M. I'm down for a bet, either way.


Oh, and how much does our loss against Arizona hurt right now...with SC's loss, we could have been going to the granddaddy of them all. Oh well, I'm happy with our share of the pac-10 title and the axe.

You dont have a share of the Pac-10 title

from what i saw, the computer rankings have uf and um dead equal at like .940

but, uf overtook um in the last two weeks in the human polls, mainly because um hasn't played and uf did

if ohio is favored by more than 3 over uf, then how can they be the #2 team above um?



You are a total homer if you think that the spread should have a bearing on college football rankings.

any true sportsfan would rather see the best team in the sec play the best team in the 10 rather than the first best team in the 10 play the second best team in the 10 for a second time. 

seems like any true sports fan would want to see the best team in the nation play the second best team.

what are the odds on the game?

if ohio is favored by more than 3, that's a good indication that um should be playing them again

What makes UM the CLEAR #2 team? Nothing except a whole lot of conjecture.

so, when ohio beats florida by more than three, does that mean that um really should have been the #2 team?
No because there is nothing to say that UM would do as well or better than they did the first time.

UF deserves a shot.

the only reason mich got jobbed is because they were ranked above florida at one time. if mich got in, couldn't one argue that florida got jobbed, too?

but to the people who are on michigan's side... if michigan went to the game and beat tOSU, would you still think tOSU could be nat'l champs despite the loss?

i mean, if michigan's loss to tOSU was meaningless, wouldn't tOSU's loss to michigan's be the same?

only people that wanted to see a rematch are big 10 folks.  And yes Wisconsin does play us

Soooo not true. I couldn't care less about the Big 10 conference or the SEC or whatever the hell Florida is in, I just think Michigan got royally screwed. It's about fairness, plain and simple, and Michigan got robbed.

Does anyone else see a "hey, we were REALLY the national champions" la USC in '03 (*pukes*), if osu goes down to florida?

How is it fair for UM to get two shots at OSU when a conference champion has not had one?

UM had their chance to show the world they were better than OSU and failed. 

You cannot definitively say that UM is so much better than UF.

No one can say definitively that UM is so much better than UF that it should get a second shot at the title game.  You have to admit that it is a close call and since UM already lost to OSU, they shouldnt get two bites at the apple.

Sorry, better luck next time.

See, the problem with those hypos is this:

USC v. Arkansas / OSU v. UT would be a rematch but it would at least be between conference champions.

It doesnt address who would be left out if that rematch were to occur.

Win your conference or dont go to the NC.

People can argue all they want about how much better they think UM is than UF, but it is all conjecture until they meet on the field. 

One thing that is certain is that UM is not clearly better than UF.
