We're Number 2!!

With the UCLA victory over USC, Michigan fans are buzzing about the possiblity of a rematch with unquestioned #1 Ohio State. The ESPN pundits are asking who should play against Ohio. The BCS system is supposed to have answered that question: the #2 team. But pushing Florida ahead of Michigan is apparently not above many sportswriters and coaches so they can get the game they want.

The team that is really getting screwed is not Michigan, who will get a BCS bid regardless and should really not complain about playing the Rose Bowl, but Wisconsin who has only lost to UM and has the misfortune to be in the same league as no 1 and no 2 (0r 3). If we are really looking for the best teams then leagues should not matter so much. Isn't it obvious from watching the Big East teams beat each other up, that some leagues are not as good as others?

Yup, I was right, Michigan got jobbed. But Louisville v. Wake Forest? Where is Wisconsin in that matchup? The Big Ten got screwed. How should they deal with it? My answer: Lloyd Carr should have set up a game with Boise State in the last two weeks. For the future, keep an open date for playing EMU should the need arise.

Michigan will kill USC, OSU will murder Florida, and everyone will regret the match-ups.

...unless they don't in which case Big 10 fans will rue a corrupt system that let their teams sit idle for a month and a half and creating conditions in which the coat holder teams could triumph.

You gotta start building the excuses now guys
