I'm perplexed at two of the different types of comments that I've seen on this thread:
1. Buckeye fans who think we have no shot at finishing #1 in the AP poll. If Notre Dame loses we will this season as the ONLY undefeated team in the country and will move up to at least #3 in the ranking behind two teams that will play each other in the SEC championship the following week (Alabama & Georgia).
This means that going into the National Championship game we will be at #2 in the country with a ND loss. If the #1 team were to lose to the #3 in the title game, then we have a very legitmate case to finish as the #1 team in the country.
2. Buckeye fans who "don't care if we finish #1" and think that it would be fun to just beat Michigan and be undefeated. Are we serious? Ohio State has a very realistic shot at winning the AP championship and claiming their 8th official national championship and we don't care if we finish #1? The obvious question here is if winning a national championship isn't something to care about - what is?
