Most did not think Brady Hoke and the boys had any chance of winning 10 games this season, but here they are, just one victory away from reaching that feat.
A win over the rivaled Ohio State Buckeyes means they will likely be playing in a BCS Bowl. The BCS individual bowl representatives are all about one main thing: money.
If they do not think a team is going to attract fans to come see their bowl, let alone watch them on television, then they will take a pass on such a team not named Michigan.
Michigan is still the winningest program of all-time, and they have been a great team to follow this season. When healthy, Denard Robinson is impossible to gameplan against when he is avoiding the turnover bug.
They have a bunch of underrated playmakers on offense, and their defense is currently ranked 14th in the nation (total yards allowed-total defense).
The selection process in the BCS goes as follows: Fiesta, Sugar and Orange. The Orange will likely be stuck with the Big East winner, so it makes it much easier on the average fan.
If Stanford wins out, the Fiesta Bowl has to decide on whether or not they want to have the Big 12 champs against Michigan or Stanford?
Of course, the Cardinal need to knock off the Irish at home in Andrew Luck's final collegiate game first.
