There has been a lot of talk about the Alabama game and a likely loss. Frankly, I am sick of it.
So let's imagine the win instead. Suddenly, UM vaults to #1 in the country, and the path before the team becomes clear: win out (or even lose once) and play for the national championship.
Though it will undoubtedly be challenging, this team has a ton going for it:
- Lots of coaches have their "best" year in their second year, winning a national championship
- There are a ton of returning players, including amazing gamebreakers like Denard
- The Big Ten is down this year (Wisconsin/MSU with a new QB, OSU adjusting to a new coaching regime, and Penn State ... er)
Discuss. Or rather, let it sink in: WE ARE GOING TO BE #1 BABY!
