The Michigan/ND conversation is interesting. Michigan is definitely better than this season and is probably playing better than ND right now. However, people forget ND is playing better than they were at the start of the season two. Their first 3 games Wimbush started at QB and they had no passing attack. Now, they sling it and score points in bunches. Plus, head to head has to count for something.
This is all just pissing into the wind though. Bama and Clemson are going to brutalize whoever is 3 and 4.
