At this point it doesn’t really matter what number is next to Michigan’s name — they’re one of the best teams in the entire country.

The newest version of the College Football Playoff rankings are out and Michigan is No. 2.

Although it didn’t happen, it’s still a great conversation point as we prepare to host the championship weekend.
