I’m surprised to see this and I’ll be even more surprised if it holds.

Well, they ARE the #1 seed. No problem.

Am I wrong thinking they are a worse version of Georgia?
They're a good team, don't get me wrong.

I just don't see why you favor them over Alabama, who just beat Georgia, with four weeks for Saban to prepare in a warm weather environment on grass.

They CAN beat us.
If we don't play our game, they will, if they play theirs.

People thinking, "Oh, they choked against UGA and TCU" need to step back.

But I just can't understand them being the favorite.
Watch us be the favorite to win it all...kinda like when we were the favorite to win the national title and Auburn (IIRC) the favorite to win the SEC.

It is about the money. A lot of money will be bet on Michigan

I'm really interested in B1GTide's take on what Michigan does well, and how we might be able to attack them? Does tOSU have the caliber of outside pass rushers Bama does? How do we match up with them?
Michigan runs an old school pro set offense. They use their tight ends to block and receive. They lean on the run and play action. They are very similar to Georgia.
