This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
The "toughest" Michigan team had to be that 1997 team. They were an unimaginitive and a vanilla ugly duckly on ofefnse, but on defense they swung brass balls around like a mace and played with grit and attitude.
All those NFL players kinda helped as well. I do agree with you that that Woodson kid did a great job of overcoming his physical limitations and relying on grit and attitude to be successful
You confirmed my point that we think of the 97 defense as the toughest. It was the best and most talented defense I have seen at Michigan so it is regarded as the toughest according to everyone.
Could the 95 defense have been tougher but less talented? Yes it could have but nobody knows that and nobody would ever say that. Hence my point that toughness is an overrated and silly thing to comment on.
"My contention is that when teams win they are usually considered tough and when teams lose the fans and press question their toughness. I think talent and strength is mistaken for toughness. "- Ziff72
To me, "toughness" is being able to overcome adversity and not lose track of the point of it all. I would say that teams who win despite a schedule and circumstances which stack up against them by conventional wisdom display "toughness" to a degree. Individuals who perform at a position where they were not expected to be much display "toughness". To a great extent, I do believe you are right - some teams are simply more talented and stronger than the other team they are playing, and the physically bigger team will likely win, but it doesn't necessarily speak to how "tough" the loser in that contest may be.
