    Could happen....USC is playing in their backyard and will have some home crowd advantage there. Both teams will be smarting from not getting in the BCS NC game.:bs:

    The Heisman tropy winner normally has a so-so bowl game so probable winner Troy Smith may not be on the top of his game.....:sssh:

    My only questions is if USC had won this past saturday how many voters would have moved Florida up to #3 above idle Michigan? I am willing to bet that they would have stayed at # 4 despite winning the SEC championship vs Arkansa. :nod:

    Darth, defense wins the big games. Both OSU and UM will win.

    You heard it here first.

    I don't think much of the Big Ten. OSU and U of M are both good teams who dominated their conference, but it seems to me when they face real competition from the South or West they generally fall short.

    Why, whatever do you mean :sssh: :sssh: ? OSU beat Cincinnati, didn't they?

    No, I am very dissatisfied that the Big 10 teams choose to play so much below their level in the non-conference games, to insure they will win. I can see no reason they play those games, although OSU did play Texas and UM I played Notre Dame. Just those few teams of lower quality spoil their strength of opponents stats because so many of the Big 10 teams are so bad.

    The reason they go for easy wins is because in the current system you get penalized way more for a loss than an easy schedule. If you want to win a National Championship, you either need to be undefeated or belong to the SEC.

    There's really no rhyme or reason to the whole thing. Remember that two years ago, Auburn went undefeated and won the SEC, yet they were left out of the BCS title game.

    Also important is small schools get big money when they play Big Ten schools. I heard Houston got $300,000 for playing UoM years back. The smaller kids at these smaller schools sacrifice their body for their schools. Cause they sure as H get blown off the field.

    In basketball tonight,

    "Ohio State's fans pointed at Michigan's bench and chanted "N-I-T! N-I-T!" in the final minute.

    That's cold.

    Michican BBall is so stupid
    I remember when they won the NIT about 8 years ago. So the next year year they bring back the same squad but instead of defending the NIT they [where they belonged] take the NCAA seed [around 63 mind you]
    and promptly get KOed in the first round.

    LOL.

    They are usually too snooty to join the NIT. I'm surprised they accepted their rightful place last year.

    Not me. I'd rather be a urinal in heaven than rule in hell. Pee is about 1000 degrees cooler.
