Michigan probably is the 2nd best team in the nation, the problem is that Ohio St. is just alot better than everyone else this year. So why have a rematch? Why even have a NC game this year?
But since we "HAVE TO HAVE" a BCS NC game, if anyone deserves to play Ohio St., it should be SC or SEC champ. Assume for a minute that USC takes care of business and wins both their games. Let's also assume that the SEC champion (either Arkansas or Florida) is a one loss team. Doesn't it stand to reason that a one-loss conference champion (PAC-10 or SEC) would be a better match-up for Ohio State than the one-loss Big-10 runner-up? Especially in the case of USC, who will have played and defeated an SEC finalist, a Big-12 finalist, the top independent, and arguably the toughest schedule in the nation?
