Too early to tell, but it seems the BAMA/LSU winner probably will play USC for the title this year.
USC is sneaky good, they have been building under the radar and are easily the class of the PAC12 again. The SEC better either look out for the Trojans or hope that Oregon still has enough in the tank to stop that train. I don't see the Big12 or Big10 producing a team that can survive those brutal schedules in tact enough to still be viable for a title. There are no Boise St. types on the radar either at this point.
I am as Die Hard Michigan as the next guy but everyone that I work with within the program really can only see a 9-3 or 8-4 team (esp now that Fitz is sidelined due to a lapse in judgement).
The system is setup to be SEC vs whoever is left standing for one more year and congrats BM, that is exactly what you will get.... SEC vs who ever can navigate what are going to be significantly tougher roads than the SEC whinner (intentional typo for you slow SEC'ers).
