A theoretical question...

Postby Luca Brasi » Tue Oct 03, 2006 5:38 pm

Here goes... let's say Michigan and Ohio State both go undefeated into the final game of the year, and Ohio State remains at #1 and Michigan is at least top 5. Michigan wins that game.

Does Michigan become a title contender and OSU is out, or does Michigan knock OSU off the top, and neither Big Ten team goes to the title game?

Your thoughts?

Well it would depend what happened with the other teams. If USC, Auburn, and West Virginia were all undefeated that would be a lot more confusing than if only USC stayed undefeated, then obviously Michigan would go to the national title game and play USC.

A lot can happen and a lot will happen between now and that game so I wouldn't worry too much about it now. Including.... gasp.... OSU or Michigan losing!

I dont know how collage rankings work so say michgan and osu are the only teams with 0 wins. Could the loser play in the national championship with the winner still? i mean #1 vs #2 and it is quite clear they are both on and two why not?

If Michigan goes to Columbus as a top-5 team and beats OSU, then they deserve to play Auburn/USC/WVU.

But then again, I'm kind of a homer :-°

Hypothetically it could happen, but as one said earlier, it would depend on what happens to other teams that day and what their final records/rankings would be.

If both teams are undefeated going into the Game there is no question the winner is going to the Title Game .

I think, as long as all 4 teams stay undefeated the winners of OSU- Michigan and Auburn Florida will meet in the national chamionship. This has the looks of another year like when Auburn was not invited to the National Champuionship even though they went undefeated. It could happen to USC and Wst Virginia.
