    Do I need to be on shrooms to understand that video?

    Yeah, I think so. But even without, it's funny on a completely random, pointless manner to me.

    No, no. If, say, Michigan beats a ranked team (let's say No. 11) in Week 2 and that team is out of the Top 25 by season's end, Michigan should still get credit for beating a ranked team. Part of the reason that team fell out of the Top 25 is because Michigan did its job in beating them.

    Are you saying if Michigan beat six ranked teams in a season (not that it would ever happen) and all six are unranked by season's end, Michigan gets no credit for beating any ranked opponent?

    Look, this topic is a love/hate one with me; I hate the system, but love the arguments.

    I think our linebackers were doing that dance instead of shadowing Juice Williams in the first half on Saturday.....

    If that were the case, Michigan would get credit for beating a bunch of overrated teams, like Notre Dame.

    Yeah, I'm saying that. It takes more than 1 loss to get booted from the top 25. Most teams that go 8-4 will end up ranked. You can't seriously consider IOWA still a great win?

    The computers will take care of the schedule strength arguments for the most part in the end.

    Scott Wolf's lede on the USC-Notre Dame gamer last year was about Jarrett catching the fourth-quarter pass from Leinart.
    That is all.
