I still don't understand why USC's win over a clearly inferior Notre Dame game has anything to do with who should play for the national championship in January. Michigan went into Columbus, shook off an impending blowout, and succumbed 42-39, the game being in doubt until the concluding minutes. It beat the same Notre Dame team, on the road, in a decisive fashion. So USC should play, and Michigan shouldn't? Simply because their schedule ends later?
Maybe Michigan should build a domed stadium and schedule, say, Columbia for the week after the Ohio State game. With their luck, Columbia might win.
