    Of those teams, beyond Michigan, Florida and Arkansas. Florida has everything. Solid on defense with playmakers on offense. Arkansas has the runningbacks to dominate. Of course, I think their defense would eventually tire down. So really, Florida and Michigan, but I've said those are the only two teams I feel that are on Ohio State's level for quite some time now (though that wouldn't mean that any other school couldn't give them a good game).

Now I understand why Michigan wants a rematch, but the bottom line is that it's always been one and done and it really shouldn't change this year.
      BUT!.

      heres the question that needs answered.

      Even though Michigan lost to OSU.

      Texas was dominated by OSU
      USC Lost to unranked Oregon State have to beat ND
      ND Lost to Michigan by 26 and have to beat USC
      Florida lost to #11 Auburn.
      Arkansas lost to USC by 36 points
      Louisville lost to #15 Rutgers
      WVU lost to #5 Louisville
      Rutgers lost to Unranked Cincy
      Boise State is undefeated but hasn't played a ranked team all season.



      Michigan lost to the #1 team by 3 points. By Common Sense (Not bcs standards) Michigan should stay #2. And Vie for the NC.

      Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

        I can't think of even one team has ever lost a game (even against the number one) and not moved downward in the polls. How're you going to lose and stay at 2. I see Michigan falling to 3 and only getting a shot at OSU if USC loses. And even then people would be tempted to use the timing of the losses to possibly bump ND over Mich (which would be a daggone shame).

          Arkansas can hang with the Buckeyes, and maybe even beat them.

          The rest of that list, I'm not as sure (yesterday's UM-tOSU game wasn't as close as the 3-pt margin would indicate).

            ND lost last year and I'm pretty sure they stayed right where they were.

            Not sure why two-loss Texas was brought up. It'd depend on how impressive USC could look in a win against ND to see how they've improved. ND shouldn't be in the discussion. Florida cam off a huge win, went to a ranked Auburn's house, looked impressive, had a controversial call, and didn't lose by much. Arkansas is a completely different team from when they faced USC, but we saw what happens when you don't have a solid QB (Rutgers). Not sure why Louisville is in the discussion. WVU should actually be in the discussion, but they have no shot now. Not sure why Rutgers or BSU are in the conversation.

            So really, IMO, the teams that should be up for consideration are Michigan, Florida, WVU, USC, and Arkansas. And I'd probably say that they're deserving of being in the NC in that order.

              Notre Dame is a strange case. They get alot more respect than they deserve at all times.

                If ND beats USC, and Arkansas beats top-10 LSU and top-5 Florida, what happens there?

                  Arkansas or Michigan would have the best shot.

                    Michigans just lucky there was 3 turnovers giving them great field position or this game would have been won by 3 TD's.
                    jesus christ, you are ridiculous. it was great game. Turnovers are part of the game. I could say "If Manningham would have caught that pass we would have won." or"If Crable did not hit Smith." Christ5 you're dumb.

                      You dont get 2nd chances in college football. Thats why this game was so big and the better team won, both teams knew this going into the game.
                      Thats not the question at hand. Its who gives the best matchup against them ace.

                        And thats OSU's fault. You messed up, thats why the games are played. How do you know it wouldn't happen again. Don't make excuses, Mental mistakes are part of the game

                          No offense, and I don't mean to come off as some arrogant OSU fan (I know, too late right?), and not just to pick on Arkansas, but who has the defense to actually hang with OSU? That would be no one. UM is clearly the #2 team in the country, with an outstanding D, but we scored 42 on them, even with 3 turnovers.

                          So, quite honestly, I don't see anyone outside of USC hanging with them. (and no, I don't think UM should be in the championship game, they didn't win their conf.) And, Arkansas would get killed. Yes, anything can happen on any day, but let's be realistic, we will not get a USC/TEXAS match-up like last year. So, I say USC.

                            Michigan had their chance at the #1 team in the country, and failed, now give another team a shot to try and prove themselves!

                            USC is that team IMO.

                              I'll say it again, you're just scared of Michigan because you know that they could very easily beat you.

                                Why am I scared of UM???? Im just a poster, the OSU players allready proved there not scared and that there better so give them a new challenge.


                                PS - in major league baseball you get another chance, not college football.
