Perhaps it should have read "facing middling D-3 teams that play in tough conferences" then? Tomayto - tomahto. Let's call the whole thing off!  :D

According to a credible source, there's a new No. 7 team in the land.

Forgive me if someone already mentioned this.

ROFLOL!  +k   ;D

And you know, some of the UMHB guys are saying they could defeat some D-I teams, and since they're ranked #3 in the poll this dovetails right into that discussion.

That's awesome. You gotta love The Onion.

They actually had to check out our poll, I think, to do that.

Guess so.

For the heck of it, I put together a screen shot of the Top 25 with Michigan in it and sent it along to the Onion folks. :)

Classic. The great thing about the Onion is that they use actual true facts in their made up news...

Well, this is one Wolverine fan who thinks this is very disrespectful.  I think they should be ranked at least #4! ;D

Pat, the AP opened up their poll to allow voters to vote for Appalachian State (that was before Oregon made ASU's victory look like much less of a big deal!) - you gonna take the wraps off your voters ???

Hmm, no, I doubt we'll allow voting for scholarship programs. :)

They can vote for D3 or D2 teams, too.  I am waiting for someone to give MUC a point, it's bound to happen.

Hmm, does this mean Air Force, Navy, and whoever is this year's power in the Ivy League are now eligible? ;D

[Tongue-in-cheek belated revenge for the brouhaha over a certain Titan bball player who shall not be named, but never had a scholarship!  ;)]

I wasn't going to rule out the other programs in case they join. I know there won't be scholarships in D-III to worry about. :)

At the half: Michigan 31, Notre Dame 0.

How about a new version of Kickoff, with ND just below Principia? ;D
