I know that we all feel we got jobbed out of a MNC game bid by Urban Meyer in 2006 but its nice to see a national media memeber acknowledge it:
6. 2006 - Michigan
Regular season: 11-1
Because Ohio State lost -- and lost big, 41-14 -- it's easy to forget now that most fans didn't even want Florida to be in the game. They wanted Michigan, which spent the final six weeks of the regular season ranked behind Ohio State in the AP Poll. The Wolverines' lone loss was a 42-39 classic in Columbus, Ohio, a game so good that the following week the pollsters kept Michigan at No. 2, as did the BCS. But when one-loss Florida defeated Arkansas in the SEC title game, the Gators leaped into the second slot and into the BCS title game. Michigan settled for the Rose Bowl, where they were romped by one-loss USC, whom Florida also leapfrogged.
Top 6 teams as BCS bridesmaids... its behind a paywall but you can probably guess who is number 1. I'll give you a hint they were ranked number 1 and took out their frustration on us.
