Food for Thought
I'm sure all the poll votes are in and somewhere a computer is hard at work crunsing the final BCS numbers, so this is all rather moot, but you can see that my Ranking system places Michigan above Florida. Before Gator Nation starts flooding my inbox with complaints abotu how my strength of schedule component doesn't count for enough (which is probably why Boise is #2), let me point out that according to my system, Michigan plays a tougher schedule than Florida, not by much, but all it has to be is by more. The Wolverines come in at .8046 and the Gators come in at .7701, both good enough to be in the top 10 toughest schedules list. I will also point out that of the 6 stats that go into my formula, Michigan is ahead in 4 of them - points per game, yards allowed per game, turnovers comitted and turnovers forced. Florida leads them in points allowed and yards per game. But the points allowed per game is barely one point in UF's favor, so it's practically a wash. I'm not advocating for or against a rematch for the title game. I'm simply advocating for the BCS to do what it was intended to do, which is match up the 2 best teams to compete for a championship. I hope all the poll voters who will inevitably vote to move Florida into USC's vacant #2 slot are doing so because they honestly believe Florida is better than Michigan and not because of the retarded politics involved.
