If we win out, I think we're in the best position to get the second BCS birth from the B1G (if such an animal is available this year). Under that scenario, everyone else in the B1G except the B1G champion and Michigan will have at least three losses. (We hand Nebraska their third loss, Wiscy and PSU play each other so the loser gets a third loss. Presuming they don't get a third lose in the reg seasons, MSUs and winner of Wiscy/PSU would meet in BTCG and obviously one of those teams lose).
Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
