As for Florida's and Michigan losses. I actually think Florida's loss was 'better'. Michigan had three weeks, and three sisters of the poor, to get ready for the latest Game of the Century according to the ESPN jokers. Geesh, do you think the Wolverines weren't prepping for Columbus while snoozing past Northwestern, Ball State, and Indiana? Michigan had three weeks to get ready to play their biggest rival for all the marbles.
Florida's loss at Auburn - a top ten team at the time, came in the middle of a dangerous conference section which included LSU, Georgia, and Alabama. What is the difference between the four game stretches? Florida played 4 bowl teams. Michigan played 1.
If there was a playoff, sure let Michy in, give a two or three seed, and let them go through others and tOSU again for that crystal ball. But as it is, we have to split hairs to decide a worthy opponent for the Buckeyes for a one game playoff. Florida is more worthy than Michigan. They won their conference and played the toughest schedule in the nation...including a conference championship game. Those CCG's are a mind field, ask any SEC, ACC, or Big 12 fan.
Michigan can still get a ring btw. Say UF barely beats tOSU, and Meatchickin lays the smackdown on Carrol's boys. I could see the AP giving Ann Arbor's heroes the top spot.

However, it sure was nice to have the old dancing partners back together again wasn't it? Good luck against Auburn and hopefully we'll see you guys in December again next year.
