I wonder if Florida would have jumped ahead of Mich in the final poll if USC beats UCLA? Fla was ranked below Mich going into the final poll. Lots of political agendas out there to keep the Big 10 from having an assured national championship and reaping the financial rewards that come with playing in the big game. I am an Ohio State fan and believe Coach Tressel should have voted for his conferance. Every other Big 10 coach voted for Mich as the #2 team. I have great respect for the job Coach Tressel has done and believe in retrospect he might feel that he made a mistake by not voting. Oh well, we all make mistakes sometimmes in our lives. I saw on ESPN that the Vegas odds for a Fla vs Mich game would have Mich as a 7 point favorite. When USC lost, I was hoping that the voters and the BCS polls would put the 2 best teams on the field to decide it all. Was it Fla's 13th game that put them over the top? Is that fair? Mich only loss was to the #1 team in the country on the road by 3 pts.. Fla lost to Auburn on the road by 10 pts. and how do you justify Auburn leaping in the polls in the final week. I guess the voters and the BCS had to somehow justify putting Fla in the #2 slot. The best game out there will not be replayed this year. Too bad, I really wanted to see the Buckeyes beat Mich twice in one year!!
