Oregon 28 vs Wisconsin 27

Wisconsin shot themselves in the foot 3 times (fumbles resulted in touchdowns).

Huge win for Oregon. That QB will get drafted for sure. Not sure how NFL will treat him though.

Do the ranks change after these bowls? FL got screwed with #9. They should easily be #5. Only losses were GA and LSU, both top 5 teams. Those other teams lost to much worse teams.

Regarding my answer that Texas A&M has a weak schedule:

I'm 90% sure it was sarcasm.

BoilerDown gets it -- folks can be 100% sure.

I picked the team with the hardest schedule of them all by far, in my estimation.  They played #1 Clemson, #8 Auburn, #1 Alabama, #4 Georgia, and #2 LSU.  I mean, ye gods.

So in one season playing Alabama , Clemson, LSU, and Georgia is Easy?  Jesus I think we should all give up on this thread. There is no hope left.

How in the world can you not recognize that as a joke?  I even posted a  :aok to make it extra obvious for the humor impaired.

Yep.

An exciting game, but man did Wisconsin bungle their way to a loss.

Alas, my beloved Wolverines fell to the mighty Crimson Tide.

It was good for the 1st half, at least, and Michigan's defense did a lot better than I thought it would manage.  I was pleasantly surprised by those things.

<S> to Alabama.

All my life, that I can remember, there have been 3 teams I was always nervous about Bama playing: Auburn, LSU & Michgan. All other teams I pretty much knew Bama would win, or I knew the Tide wasn't up to beating them that particular year. But those 3 I pointed out, even when Bama was having a great year, I could not be confident they'd  come out on top against those 3, the passion runs high in those games. Wolverines put up a good fight. It was a good college game, even if Bama had lost. <S> Wolverines.

Michigan has the talent just need to get a new coach.  Never less,  it was a great game until 4th.

Auburn let me down in my top 10 pick. But hell thats the way they roll down there. Consistency is non existent.

Auburn is good and has good talent, but they do have a lot of variability.  It might be because Malzahn is not a conservative coach, which makes it more variable but also fun to watch.  They have a freshman QB who is good, but freshmen are going to be less consistent.

Also, Minnesota is a good team this year, so I figured it would be a worthy fight.

<S> to you, nooby!

I read a couple of Michigan football message boards (MGoBlog and 247).  The majority of the posts were Michigan fans crying about the Alabama matchup and worrying especially about Michigan's D-line vs. Najee Harris and the Alabama O-line.  So, I was pretty happy about how they did.  I wish Michigan's QB had a better day.  It was his last game with Michigan, and it would have helped him with his prospects if he had a good game.  I hope that Ruggs is OK.  I give those Alabama receivers (and all the top Alabama prospects) a lot of credit for playing in the game.

That's from the reactionary side, people who don't think things through and fortunately tend not to be in charge of anything important.
