UMich Should Be #2: No Reasonable Arguments Left

Sun Dec 03, 2006 9:54 am

USC goes down AGAIN!!! Are you freakin' kidding me? Two losses to unranked teams? Can you say overrated?

I can.


It will be OSU-Michigan II - The REMATCH.

BORING. You had your chance. If Florida wins they should play against OSU. You can try again next year.

Florida's not as good a team. Sorry, bub. They're good, but not as good.

If Florida somehow jumps Michigan in the polls, it will be because HUMAN pollsters didn't want to see a rematch, not because they didn't think Michigan was the second best team in the country. According to Slive, the National Championship Game is to set up the two best teams in the country, period. If Michigan doesn't go to Glendale, the BCS is officially a hack.

So what? Florida has one loss and so does Michigan. Florida is just as good as UM is and should have the shot instead of letting UM go at it again. Head to head we'd beat UM in my opinion but unfortunately we'll never know now that USC has lost.

BS! If UM goes then the BCS is a hack. UM had their chance and lost it. Giving them a rematch is bogus and will just further the calls for a playoff system. It would be the least watched and least cared about football championship of all time.

As a Michigan fan, I'm biased that we should get a rematch with Ohio State in the BCS Championship Bowl. Florida has a good team this year but Michigan has a better team. Michigan's only loss was to #1 Ohio State (42-39) where Florida's was 27-17 Auburn which I believe was ranked #11.

At the end of the day UM lost and don't deserve another chance. Florida should at least be considered if they win tonight.

A rematch is not unprecedented, and has plenty of parallels in other sports. The Redskins beat the Seahawks in the regular season, and lost to them in the playoffs last year. Can you imagine the NFL being run by pollsters who said "the Seahawks can't play the Redskins in the playoffs because they already had their chance and lost it?" In your opinion, who deserved to go to the Superbowl? No question, the Seahawks. (And I bleed burgundy and gold. And maize. And blue. FWIW, I shit scarlet and gray. Actually, I take that back. That sounds like I have a problem.  Smile )

Anyways, I think you need a new argument. That one's not working anymore.

Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 7):

If you care about what a team's ranking WAS when you played them, why no mention of losing to an unranked (at the time) Arkansas? (I may be mistaken about their being unranked, but they certainly weren't top 10.)

To hell with all these one loss teams!
Both Ohio State and Boise State both came out of Divison 1A undefeated.
If we're always going to digress to ranking the one loss teams by the circumstances of their loss, then the undefeateds better come first.
OSU and BSU both won their conferences. Why should you be in the national championship game if you can't even take care of business within your conference. Look at the teams that have somehow sqeezed into the BCS championship game without even winning their conference. 2003 Oklahoma? Stuffed. 2001 Nebraska? Blown out.
So let's just make it OSU-BSU in Glendale and call it a day.  stirthepot 
Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs!

The key difference is OSU played real teams while BSU plays schools for the deaf, blind, and wayward girls. Let them play against half the teams OSU did and they have a few losses.

Michigan: 84-61

Best team beaten (BCS standings):
Florida: #5 LSU, 23-10

That's not a fair argument, because many teams scheduled 1-AA opponents simply as schedule fillers as their 12th game (which was allowed by the NCAA starting just this year).

Would Florida have scheduled WCU that late in the season otherwise? (You could say the same thing about Michigan/Ball St) It was likely the only game they could get that fit.

The only reason I care whether Florida or Michigan goes to Glendale is because it directly impacts where LSU goes bowling:

If Michigan faces OSU, LSU goes to Pasadena to face USC in the Rose...

If Florida jumps Michigan, then Michigan goes to Pasadena and LSU goes to the Sugar Bowl...

That said, being the SoCal raised guy I am, I'd like to see LSU go to Pasadena, march in the Rose Paraade, and face USC.

I won't delve into whether Florida or Michigan deserve to go to the title game.....both have good arguments.

At least the Michigan-OSU game will be good. Florida will lose big. No way can they hang with OSU.

I think it's going to be a very close vote on who's going to take on Ohio State in the BCS Championship game. I do agree that unless Florida fixes its quarterback situation they will be roadkill for OSU.

Put up a logical argument and we will respond: how about these

You've made no arguements whatsoever other than you believe you to be the 2nd best team in the nation.

They do require students to know how to read, down in Florida, don't they?  Wink  Wink  Wink  stirthepot 

Look back up at Reply 11. Any responses? I'd love to hear your comments, honestly.

So was Boise State, and we all know how meritless that argument was.

Intellectually dishonest. Fla #1, Michigan #3. Not a big difference, now is it?

I do too. I honestly think that this is yet further proof that the BCS has one "C" too many in its name.

I have a lot of respect for Florida, and their fans. It's too bad that they're going to have to go to New Orleans.

That's not the SEC though now is it.

Doesn't matter how big the difference is though, FL is #1 bottom line.

Your only argument is that a rematch should happen because they have happened in the past, you present nothing on the two teams that factually shows that UM deserves to go.

Add to that Florida's wins versus bowl eligible teams on their schedule versus UM's

Florida's bowl eligible opponents (10 of 12 teams on schedule): Bama, Arkansas, Auburn, UGA, Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina, Tennessee, Southern Miss, and FSU.

Michigan's bowl eligible opponents (5 of 12 teams on schedule): Iowa, Minnesota, Penn State, Wisconsin, Notre Dame


Florida's losses to bowl eligible teams: ONE

Michigan's losses to bowl eligible teams: ONE

You wanted facts...there they are.

Edit: Mistakenly gave us no losses to bowl teams when in fact we did lose to Auburn. Wishful thinking but now fixed.

(For those who don't understand, Florida would have beaten Boise State into next week and they'd be 11-1. But Florida would still be #3.)

I disagree. Both have Porous defenses, it would be a shootout, whoever has the ball last wins type of game.

That 'rematch' was the result of a playoff, and the two happened to meet.

Yes it's not unprecedented, but in a playoff you have no choice.
