When USC loses to UCLA, who should face Ohio State: Florida or Michigan?

    This is setting up to be one of the hardest weeks of Pete Carroll's coaching career.

    This is one of those situations where I just have that feeling. . .

    There is certainly a chance the Trojans suffer a let down.

    But there is certainly no chance they lose to UCLA.

    The only way Michigan gets a rematch is if UCLA beats USC (ain't happening) and Arkansas beats Fla. (a good posibility but inconsequential since USC ain't losing).

    Take an antacid and see if it clears up. UCLA ain't got the horses ... on the field or the sideline.

    While we may like to think that, I think most voters have Michigan ahead of Florida right now.

    That's only going to change if the Gators put a USC-50 point-style whipping on the Hogs. Florida has shown they can't core that much unless its against Western Carolina.

    We'd better be hoping for a 38-14 USC win, otherwise the rematch is coming.

    If by some miracle USC manages to lose to UCLA, Michigan would play Ohio State for the title. Florida just hasn't looked good enough to get there and Ohio State would blow the Gators off the field.

    You think it'll mean losing No. 2 if USC doesn;t win big? interesting

    I think the writers want any excuse to put Michigan in the title game, and I think USC still needs to impress the computers. UCLA lost to ND remember, so they'd better win by a bunch more than the Irish.

    So what if Florida beat Arkansas 56-14?

    Does USC really deserve a spot in the championship any more than Florida does?

    (just asking...from what I've seen, I think USC is a better team than Fla)

    I see where you're coming from Dae. If that happens, it makes things interesting. But with the nature of the pollsters not dropping teams ubless they lose, it's a stretch to think that a blowout win by Florida + a solid win by USC moves the Gators ahead of the Trojans.

    I happen to work in the sunshine state, and pretty much everyone in my office doesn't think the Gators have a sniff at this point.

    If that happens, I don't think there will be anybody (BCS or human) ranking USC anything less than No. 1.

    Don't see how that results in a split championship.

    At that point, USC will have beaten Ohio State, the one thing Michigan failed to do. If that isn't enough for USC to leapfrog Michigan, something is wrong with the people voting in that poll.
