Before you start calling the 2010 season a failure, view the season through the transitive property! (In geometry the transitive property states if x=y and y=z then x=z)
Michigan beat UConn - UConn controls its own destiny to win the Big East
Michigan beat Notre Dame...and if that's not enough, ND beat USC!
Michigan beat UMass who beat James Madison who beat #15 Virginia Tech (who also may win the ACC)
Michigan beat Bowling Green who beat Marshall who beat Tulane who beat Rutgers who beat beat Army who beat Duke, who beat Virginia who beat Miami who beat Clemson who beat NC State who beat Florida State who beat Florida who beat Appalachian State...Oh how sweet revenge tastes!
Michigan beat Indiana...ah who are we kidding...
Michigan beat Illinois who beat Northern Illinois who who beat Minnesota who beat Iowa who beat MSU who beat Wisconsin who beat OSU
Michigan beat Purdue who beat Northwestern who beat Vanderbilt who beat Mississippi who beat Kentucky who beat South Carolina who is playing in the SEC championship game
So take into account the transitive property and Michigan wins the Big East, ACC, and possibly the SEC with revenge victories over Appalachian St. and USC (for all those damn Rose Bowl losses) and a win over OSU!! Not a bad season in my book!
