The Top 25 countdown gets political as we get closer to the final five!
#10) University of Michigan
It’s halftime. Both teams are in their locker room discussing what they can do to win this game in the second half.It’s halftime in America, too. People are out of work and they’re hurting. And they’re all wondering what they’re going to do to make a comeback. And we’re all scared, because this isn’t a game.
The people of Michigan know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Michigan is fighting again. We’ve seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in our lives. And, times when we didn’t understand each other. It seems like we’ve lost our heart at times. When the fog of division, discord and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead.
But after those trials, they all rallied around what was right and acted as one. Because that’s what they do. They find a way through tough times, and if they can’t find a way, then they’ll make one. All that matters now is what’s ahead. How do they come from behind? How do they come together? And, how do they win?
Michigan’s showing us it can be done. And, what’s true about them is true about all of us. This school can’t be knocked out with one punch. They get right back up again, and when they do, the world is going to hear the roar of their engines.
But Michigan’s probably going to lose to Ohio State.
#9) Usain Bolt
After his stunning performance during the Olympics, Bolt is ready to the field and win all by himself. We’re not betting against him. Are you?
#8) Florida State University
Remember all those times Florida State was ranked highly at the start and then eventually fell out of the rankings? It’s happening again.
#7) University of Oregon
Oregon is going to be really good. But the uniforms are an abomination, and you cannot, with any sense of morality, complain about Boise State’s field or any unfair rule in college football before pointing out the atrocity that is an Oregon uniform. If the school’s mascot was vomit, the color scheme might make sense. But they are the Ducks. It’s time for a change.
#6) Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan
Romney and Ryan are making a strong push for success this fall, and they’re expecting victories at Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. They aren’t popular with women and are losing support from old people. And others who aren’t younger, whiter men. But Romney and Ryan feel they can compete well with young, white guys. As long as they can find ways to keep minorities from playing.
