    Michigan

    No way should they get a BCS bid. They have played a very weak schedule. Michigan has had 8 home games and 4 away games. So far they are 2-2 on the road. They have played 2 teams in the Top 25 splitting those and have a 1-1 record.

    Michigan has played a weak schedule and should not be rewarded for it.

    Re: Michigan

    Michigan is rated #15 in the BCS poll as of this week, has no prayer of getting into the B1G title game (MSU has already clinched that), and OSU more than likely isn't going to get Michigan high enough in the BCS poll to get them an at-large.

    They really don't have a prayer at getting into a BCS bowl this year. Although I'm curious as to why people are thinking they do have a shot...

    MSU and Wisconsin are both ranked right in front of them. One of them has to lose. That's what will put them ahead.

    edit: I guess Wisconsin is right behind them. Georgia and South Carolina are right in front of them and both of those could drop a game.

    Anyway the point still stands that it will take a lot of things to go right for Michigan not to get to 14th.

    Re: Michigan

    Michigan did NOT play Penn State and Wisconsin this year. WEAK schedule. I don't know how you can place a team with a poor SOS like Michigan and a mediocre record in a BCS game. Many teams more deserving.

    Re: Michigan

    Michigan would get destroyed in a BCS bowl game. If they get in I would like to see them get absolutely dominated by Houston.

    Re: Michigan

    Honestly, I'm not entirely sure 2 Big 10 teams deserve a BCS bowl this year. As weak as the Big 10 is this year, having 8-9 wins doesn't mean you're a good team. Then again, huge fan base, so they would probably be chosen despite how good of a team they are.

    Fanbase.

    If they are in the top 15, 10-2 Michigan will get picked ahead of 10-2 Kansas State.

    More $$$ for the bowl.

    And because you can basically count on Houston, a 2nd SEC team, and Stanford claiming 3 of the 4 at-large BCS bids, having Michigan be a viable option is bad news for the Big 12.

    That's why we all should be pulling for Notre Dame and Ohio State tomorrow.

    Houston is going to be Hawaii deja vu from 2008, especially if they face a SEC team. Michigan would stand a much better chance in a BCS game.

    They lost to Iowa so they should be automatically taken out of consideration....

    If they go, yes. However they really shouldn't be in. Oregon, Stanford, KSU and the winner of OU/OSU deserve the bids more than a 10-2 team that's played in a weak conference and had 8 home games.

    But, the BCS is about money, not rewarding better teams.
