SALINE MICHIGAN Minutes after the end of ‘The Game’, wow, what a game, it seems a blur now. Maybe that’s the impact of a baker’s dozen of Miller Lites. Maybe it’s the after shock of a season that could have been. Perhaps, just perhaps, there’s the air of wonderment around what will play out in the next two weeks in with the 1 loss challengers. Here’s some quick answers to some likely questions:
– Did Ohio State deserve to win? Yes.
– Did Michigan play like champions? Yes.
– Does Michigan look like the 2nd best team in the country? Probably.
– Is a rematch out of the question? No way.
So here I am, just 30 minutes from the final whistle and while I’m disappointed you have to be proud of how M stood in there, you have to be upset at the late penalty, you have to wonder what could have been. But soon your thoughts turn to what might be. What if the nation thinks Michigan deserves a rematch? What does a close Michigan win in Glendale resolve?
Instead of answers on ‘Judgement Day’ or ‘Armaggedon’ or ‘The Game’, we have more questions. At least around who deserves the other spot in the BCS Championship.
