Before you go bonkers and automatically ridicule me for such a crazy thought, just hear me out on this one. I hate that Team Up North just as much as everyone else. That is not in question. My problem that is bothering me is the fact that we might have to root for Michigan this year (*puke*) for the sake of our title hopes. With our SOS the way it is, and with all the other big time teams playing other top 10 ranked schools, I just think we are going to have to play the Wolverines when they are ranked high for us to have any credibility with the voters, should there be more than two undefeated teams left at the end of the season.
Lets say Clemson goes undefeated, as well as Alabama. We are also undefeated, but we "barely" got by Wisky and Northwestern (thats what the voters would say). We then play a Michigan team that lost 3 games and was ranked very low. On the other hand, Clemson played a great FSU team, as well as Georgia and South Carolina. There is just no way we get in the NC in this situation.
We really need Michigan to be a top ten team when we roll into their own stadium and pound their guts into their turf if we are to have any shot at the big game, should there be 3 or more undefeated teams. Thoughts?
