IT DOESN'T MEAN A GOD DAMN THING...WE'VE GOT PURDUE COMING IN THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!
I still can not believe what happened last night. I am thinking the one good thing that came out of that is it made us look better losing to a good MSU team. I am thinking that this will play to our advantage in the BCS right? Of course, Michigan is going to need to win out and Sparty is going to have to lose 2 games for the BCS standings and all that other stuff to come into play

I wonder if the folks in East Lansing can appreciate the caption. The "Hail" refers to a Hail Mary pass at the end of the game.
Much as we hate to admit it, the B1G's two best teams just played a classic. And as much as I dislike these teams and their coaches, I hate it more that immediately after the game everybody was talking about the (probable) rematch in Indianapolis. Obviously a ton of things can and will happen between now and then, but these two teams are certainly the favorites to meet in the Inaugural playoff game. And by definition, that game will be more important than this game. It's not too hard to imagine that in a few years down the line, Michigan and Ohio will meet in Ann Arbor or Columbus with only 1 out-of-conference loss each - and absolutely nothing on the line, since the rematch a week later will define their seasons. While the M-OSU situation could be avoided by putting them in the same division, there's no getting around the fact that with a 12 team conference, a rematch in the title game is inevitable at some point. Unless we go with my totally bats idea.
What if the B1G played a round robin schedule (11 conference games) and worked out a deal with the NCAA that because of this, every team in the conference could play 13 games? (Isn't that deal-making how the SEC Title Game started this craziness off anyway?) Obviously, this would mean we only play a cupcake out of conference other than ND - but really, isn't that the scenario we're faced with after 2012 anyway? This also might mean a return to co-champs and other such nonsense, but since the Rose Bowl bid no longer goes to the co-champ who hasn't been to it for the longest time, we'll know who the "de facto" champion is anyway. I can already think of a few reasons it'll never happen (and feel free to post plenty more, BTCG=$$$$ for conference being #1) but am I just being incredibly old-fashioned in wanting a system like that instead of the current B1G setup, or are there any other MGoBloggers who'd rather have that?
This was one of his comments after the game...you would hope he could be more gracious in victory....obviously it was a huge disappointment for the team he just beat but he can't help piling on
“You got a sense it was their Super Bowl here, all the official (recruiting) visitors and moving it to a night game, the bye before. So I think it’s even more pleasing to come in here with all that stuff going on and still play really well.”
emotional...and combative...he's entitled
Good thing they got manhandled. Theus, Banner, Jordan, Marshall, Armstead, etc., etc.
