Up until today, I have been rooting for bubble teams to lose so that in the event that Michigan lost to Illinois we would still be dancing. However, with this latest win, I am 100% confident that Michigan is dancing (as is most of America it seems).
Question for the board: Do we now root for bubble teams to win in the hopes it knocks Sparty out? I try to keep a non-MSU attitude in that I do not root against Sparty when it hurts Michigan, and until today I wanted MSU to remain on the right side of things to help Michigan's case for getting in if they were to lose today. Do we still need Sparty to be in the NCAA tourny to keep UM a locked in bid? Do bubble teams winning and knocking MSU out possibly cause Michigan to drop into the play-in game? I'd like to root against Sparty but not at the detriment of Michigan's bid or NCAA bye (non-play-in game) chances.
