If the B1G championship is undefeated Iowa vs. 1 loss Sparty, winner goes to playoff and loser goes to Rose. I don't think we'd hop the loser of the B1G championship unless it was a third loss for that team.

Wait obviously OSU would have two losses if we win. So nm, others answered better

If pen state wins, MSU will have two conference losses, vs 1 each for Michigan and OSU (assuming an M win). michigan would win based on head to head with OSU. If MSU wins, they're in regardless of the M/OSU outcome, because they have the tiebreaker over both teams.

I agree, it's just that that particular call is, among the bad calls, at least a "correct" call.

Huh? Other than the Peppers biff, I'm seriously not sure what you're talking about.

Eh, Henry had a handful of jersey on the outside of the shoulder pad - but he didn't get much motion on the lineman and those are rarely called.

Honestly I think the things Michigan would have to do to be considered for the Rose Bowl (go 3-0 from here) are at least as unlikely as the things that would need to happen to other teams for a two-loss Michigan to get into the playoffs. So I reject the premise that "complete chaos" is required.

Uhh... Everyone saying the Rose Bowl, you realize that would probably mean we lost the B1G championship game to Iowa, right? Or that we win the B1G but get passed up for the playoffs? Who would want that?

That's... Not that bad? I mean not good, but clearly Indy's ability to slow down the RBs came at the expense of stopping anything else, particularly Jake Rudock.

And I'm not defending Penn State in any way, just that this particular bit of news was not up to them.

Wait you were serious? I thought you were slyly referencing the NYSE. Where the few people who make most of the money do have sophisticated algorithms no one else has access to.

As we all know, it is the duty of the great State of New York to protect anyone from voluntarily participating in a business transaction with downside risk.

It is indeed awesome, but it's obscure. Then again not that nerdy, being basically Canadian bowling (the game average joes play while drinking on week nights).

The position of Seeker makes the game stupid. It should be called "plot device ball"

I play curling, so I'm in no position to criticize obscure nerdy sports. However, I will state emphatically that Quidditch is a horribly broken, poorly designed game, and on top of that requires magical objects for which no reasonable substitute exists to be even remotely interesting. Of all the fictional games, I don't get why this one has a following.

But what should he do? One random asshole draws a swastika (we have no idea who, or what their motivations were. Could have been an actual racist, someone's poor idea of a joke, or a hoax). The president then does what exactly? Forces every white kid to write an apology? A townie calls a black student a slur. Rend your garments? Publicly declare that all white people are terrible?

But the atrociousness of the passing game has little to do with the play calling - it's mostly on the QB. Should we fire the QB coach?

Some of you seem to not recognize the distinction between "have a drink" and "get drunk". A beer / wine with dinner is hardly "drinking", heck in most of Europe a drink with dinner and often lunch is de riguer, and they're healthier than us in a lot of measures.
