"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Not saying we're necessarily top 4, but please list these 10-12 teams that you actually think would beat is on a neutral field. If we beat 2 top 5 teams (undefeated OSU and Iowa), people would know we're good enough. They would just have to vote based on our play and not necessarily our record.

I didn't think so originally, but OSU and Iowa are now ranked 3 and 5, respectively. If they stay there until we play and beat both of them, we deserve to be top 4...

Call it the paranoia of the last decade of Michigan football, but I get a sneaking suspicion that the reason State hasn't looked good these past few weeks is because they're spending all their time gameplanning for Michigan and ignoring the "lesser" opponents on their schedule. I like M's chances on Oct 17th, but it's not going to be an easy win...

also, 24-10. M struggles to finish their first drive, settles for a field goal, then scores a couple touchdowns to lead 17-3 at half. They play conservatively in the 2nd half, but add another touchdown for a comfortable lead. Maryland gets their first and only touchdown in garbage time.

bad example... this pass was thrown slightly behind, but was probably intentional, given the coverage. if it's thrown in front, it's likely picked off or deflected.

To be clear, I think a 11-1 and maybe even a 10-2 Michigan gets into the playoff (even over undefeated teams) with wins over OSU and MSU, which is why they would need to lose 2 more in my scenario.

Normally, I'd like to see our conference do well in the playoffs, because I think it'll be nice to dominate the B1G when it's considered the top conference. However, I'm ok with your prediction of no B1G teams in the playoff, given the following scenario:
UM loses a close one to BYU, and drops another to NW before going undefeated in remaining conference play. They get revenge against NW in the conference championship game, but are kept out of the playoff due to their 9-3 record. They then go on to demolish a 9-3 Notre Dame in the 2016 Rose Bowl.

It's not about whether they play differently after a loss, but how the public perceives them. M beating a ranked team means something to the college football world. BYU losing their ranking right before we play them absolutely has a negative effect on our game next weekend, win or lose.
