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?
