Okay, well, readers will be aware that I’m not an especially close student of the college football game. That said, I’m well aware that Michigan is supposed to have a good football team. Instead: They suck. Like really, really, really badly. But why are they so terrible?
And what’s wrong with the rankers that they had this stinker of a team listed at number five. Meanwhile, Bob Farley point out that had Appalachian State lost last week, then today’s Oregon victory would have done much more to vault Oregon forward in the standings. This sort of thing, to me, is a big part of what makes college football dispiriting compared to properly organized sports.
