This folks is exactly the way it should be. They are the #2 team in the country.
Now we have USC who moved up in a couple of polls. The consensus is that USC, and only USC really has a shot at jumping Michigan based on the computers. If they win out by defeating Notre Dame and UCLA in effect flipping them and Michigan in the remaining computer ranks they need. The pollsters seem to be leaning towards USC moving up in that scenario, also.
So as a long time Michigan fan I have to actually root for the hated Fighting Irish to take USC down. I can justify USC jumping htme if they win out. Michigan had their shot and USC in my mind is the only team that has a chance at getting the next one.
WE ARE N-D!
