Because the game was in Columbus!!!! USC will have won on a "neutral" field, which is actually more like a home game for USC, because the game is much closer to USC than it is to OSU

It's not impossible that the voters will see it that way, it's just highly improbable. Don't get your hopes up. ;-)

This has kind of been said already, but because Michigan lost by three points and on a totally unecessary semi-freak penalty, IN COLUMBUS, on an incredibly shoddy field. If I remember correctly OSU had like 3 TDs of 40+ yards, which would never have happened if the field hadn't been re-sodded like a week before the game.

Sooooo are you saying that Michigan and Ohio State were playing on two different fields? Because if so I think that's against the rules or something. If, however, they were playing on the same field, then your statement doesn't hold water.

He is just saying the field benefited Ohio St. Also, this is starting to get reducndant but IT WAS IN COLUMBUS.

A loss is a loss. And blaming the sod on the field is pitiful.

My main point wasn't the sod- my main point was that the game was in columbus- had it been in ann arbor, it would have been a whole different game.

You don't know that. You might have loss by more who knows. What we do know is Ohio St. beat Michigan this year and that is what matters.
