This is officially why I hate the polls. While I think Michigan could be the #2 team in the country, I think other teams deserve a shot. They should fall at least a couple of spots after they lose to give teams like USC and FLA a chance.

Which is why 2/3 of the score is human...

USC has a chance, they have to beat ND and UCLA. If they beat them they are in.

Florida is likely in if USC loses and they throttle Arkansas in the SEC Championship game, but that isnt likely.

But Michigan shouldn't be #2 after a loss. USC should be.

Who says they shouldnt be #2, the lost by 3 to the #1 team.

If USC doesnt throttle ND, they shouldnt be #2. USC is in control over its own destiny. They win they are in, they lose they are out. But honestly like I said IMHO they arent the number 2 team if they cant throttle ND.

The real problem is what if we do get a rematch and Michigan wins? What a clusterf#ck that would be. Gotta love the BCS.

I disagree. They lost. Previously every time a team lost who were in the top 10 or so, they dropped a few spots. If the polls work that way in the beginning and middle of the season, they should work that way at the end.

It's all ridiculous to argue because the BCS is a fraud anyway.

2 points:

(1) Michigan and OSU are nearly tied for 1st first place with USC down a relatively big amount
(2) The computers still have Michigan ahead of OSU :D ...by exactly the same lead that OSU has over USC :D

USC had a chance to not lose to unranked Oregon State, but they blew that chance. Michigan lost to the top team in the country, and it was a darn close game.

If anything that reaffirms that they could very well be the second best in the country.

It wouldnt be a cluster ****** because Michigan would take both the AP and BCS title.

OSU wouldnt hold on to the #1 ranking in the AP with a loss to the #2 team.

And the winner of the BCS Title game is the winner of the BCS title.

How would it be a clusterfuck?

USC fell a number of spots after the loss. Michigan should also. It's ridiculous, but see my post above in that I think the BCS is a total fraud anyway.

why not
usc would have beaten sec west champion, big 12 north champion, a good cal team and notre dam

michigan would have lost close to #1 team and beaten Wisconsin and notre dame

i agree Michigan is a really good team but pollsters give too much importance to a close loss to a good team

Yeah but they lost to teams ranked lower than them. Teams rarely drop many spots when they lose a close game to a team higher than them.

Seriously. Do people think it's a rare event in sports for two teams to meet in the regular season, then again in the championship game, and have a different outcome in the two games?

This is bullsh!t. I agree they played well against OSU, but they lost. The rest of their schedule hasn't been that impressive, so what is the overwhelming evidence that they whould remain #2?

There is a HUGE f'ing difference between losing to an unranked scrub team and losing to the the #1 team.
