No Resolution Yet
Doesn’t make sense? No kidding, neither does anything else this time of year. Arguments can be made for a handful of teams to line up and face Ohio State for the national championship this year. How in the world can anything be right?
In my opinion, the team most deserving to play Ohio State is Michigan. They have but one loss, to Ohio State. And therein lies the problem. Because, Michigan already had their chance. They had the chance to beat Ohio State, let someone else take a shot. But if you look at “quality” of losses, Michigan has the best of the one-loss teams. They lost to the number one ranked team. So, how can you justify another one-loss team being more deserving when their loss is to a lesser opponent?
Florida played a tough SEC schedule, but they have not looked overly impressive. Not that looking overly impressive should discount them. But do you think a team that struggled to beat one of the worst Florida State teams in my lifetime is playing better than Michigan, or USC? And they still have to play Arkansas.
Speaking of USC, now they looked good, very good in handling the Irish from Notre Dame. And they have looked good for a while now. Including a season-opening beat down of Arkansas, granted a very different Arkansas team but still. But, which is more impressive, beating Notre Dame in your house, or in theirs? Michigan spanked Notre Dame in South Bend.
So in my head, anything USC and Florida has done, Michigan has done better. It makes as much sense as anything else I’ve heard.
