    Who has written a story yet claiming Florida has not shot at OSU? They just announced the pairing.

    Does Mike Freeman have a vote? Wait, can't be. Freeman is writing a sequel column to hammer home the point that Meyer is ruining Leak and the Gators by using two QBs. Bet Mike's proud of that column right about now.

    If this board can be used as a small sample size ...

    I'll grant you that one. But I doubt we'll see a significant number of stories along those lines in the coming days. And I doubt I'll hear nearly as much dissing of Florida (from the scribes) next month in Arizona as I did of OSU in 2002.

    If they get blown out, people would say Michigan belonged. If they keep it close or win, then they will prove that they belong.

    If Michigan had played a 13th game, say against any other Big Ten team besides Ohio State this week, would it be going to the BCS title game and not Florida?

    PS - I'm amazed that more isn't made of Florida's shoddy nonconference schedule: crap-ass Central Florida, very middling (bad, even?) Florida State, and a 2-9 Division I-AA team. At least Michigan beat a then-No. 2 Notre Dame at Notre Dame; Vanderbilt, a team from the "best conference in the country" and the MAC champion (41-17), plus another MAC team that lost each of its three games to Big Ten teams by 10 points or less.

    Fire away.

    Um, whatinhell are you blathering about? The two situations are nowhere near the same.

    Ohio State coughed its guts up against a shitty Michigan State team that year.

    Damn. The only things lamer than the selective, short-term memories are the lame justifications for putting Florida at No. 2.

    You can't hold Florida State against Florida. That's a perennial power that has recently fallen on hard (relatively) times.

    Now the other two non-conference games? Can't defend Florida on those.

    Michigan had their shot. The only way a rematch made any sense was if Michigan had won the first time around. Of the teams listed here, I reckon Florida is as good as any,

    Then why was Michigan ranked No. 2? Are you saying the voters would have dipped down to Oklahoma, if necessary, to avoid a rematch? Because that's just flat-out dumb.
