Have you watched Michigan's offense in the month of November? Or have you watched Alabama's defense and offense?
To beat them, you're going to need to score 30+ because their offense is very good. Their defense is everything Michigan's is, and more. Michigan *might* have the defense to keep it competitive, but they don't have anywhere close to the offense to hang with them. Only teams that do are Washington and maybe Clemson on a good Clemson day.

You are fucking high if you think Michigan can beat Alabama.
Like, you've seen who our OL has struggled with this season, right?

Michigan's "top 10 win" in the non conference just got smoked so badly they're going to fall below USC in the rankings and lose out on the Rose Bowl. So that's not that great of a win anymore.
|4 hours 56 min ago||Not likely. A win for PSU or||
Not likely. A win for PSU or WI is probably enough to jump Michigan and get in. A conference championship, a 7/9-game winning streak, and a win over the No. 6/7 team is a pretty good last minute resume boost.

Pssst....Michigan has been down and out for a decade. Not a whole lot different than Washington.
|5 hours 4 min ago||I like that you have Alabama||
I like that you have Alabama as some sort of underdog in the playoff where you hope they can beat Washington and go toe to toe with Ohio State. Alabama will be favored by a TD or more vs. all of the playoff teams. And with their offense, Washington is probably the only one capable of beating the Tide. Alabama's defensive line will absolutely murder Ohio State.
|5 hours 16 min ago||Exactly. Not sure what OP was||
Exactly. Not sure what OP was expecting him to say there. I actually interpreted his "they looked very impressive" as more of a sign that they will either be in or stay ahead of Michigan.

Pretty sure an ACC team gets an autobid to the Orange Bowl, and then the second spot is at-large.

Colorado was touch and go for a while too.

Ahhh...on the road. You edited it after I replied. The Florida one still stands, but yeah....they've been ass on the road for a good long while.

"Michigan has not beaten a team that finished the regular season at 9-3 or better since 2007 (over 9-3 Illinois) and 8-4 or better since 2010. That's sad."
|19 hours 19 min ago||I do think Colorado losing||
I do think Colorado losing badly improved Michigan shot at the Rose Bowl. But they would need PSU/Wi to be in the playoff and USC to be in the Rose. If that happens I think that's a pretty easy choice since it's a huge win for TV.

You linked to the thread for predictions on the 2015 season.
|20 hours 5 min ago||It's one of four criteria for||
It's one of four criteria for the committee. Conference championships is another. So while it's nice that Michigan beat both head-to-head both PSU and WI can cancel that out with a conf title. Throw in closing out the season strong vs. Michigan's 2 out of 3 losses and I think it's easy to give the nod to the B1G winner over Michigan. Especially if you're already including one non conference winner in Ohio State.
|20 hours 10 min ago||Michigan's schedule isn't||
Michigan's schedule isn't great either. And having one of their best wins get their face punched in didn't help.
|20 hours 11 min ago||Don't call me guy, buddy.||
Don't call me guy, buddy.
|20 hours 12 min ago||Yup. Plus in the PSU||
Yup. Plus in the PSU scenario, they'll have won 9 straight including wins over a playoff team in OSU and a win over Wisconsin (which is much better than anything Michigan did over that stretch). On top of that, they beat Iowa 41-14 and played Michigan severely depleted on defense. That makes the Michigan game pretty easy to dismiss for the committee, I think.
|20 hours 35 min ago||Helps a tiny bit but not enough||
It helps a tiny bit, but not enough. If Michigan hadn't lost to Iowa its a different story, but they did. And for all the strength of schedule people out there, Michigan played three games out of state and lost two of them. And its not like Rutgers is some big selling point, either. That doesn't look good to the comittee either.
So while its nice that they beat PSU and WI, they lost the games that actually mattered. The committee can put in OSU and the B1G winner and just say tough luck Michigan, should've won your important games.

Well your fucking opinion is wrong. Hate to break it to you.
|20 hours 42 min ago||CFP rankings don't work that way||
The CFP rankings don't work like that. Its not a simple someone ahead of you loses, so everyone else moves up thing. Conference championships are a big data point for them, and they don't factor it in at all until after someone wins one. That's what saw TCU drop from 3 to 6 in 2014 (despite winning big in their last game) and OSU move from 5 to 4.
So while you may use that example as "hey, OSU moved from 5 to 4 and got in" they also won big in their conf. champ game to do so. Michigan has nothing to further wow the committee whereas PSU and WI does.
|20 hours 47 min ago||Keep dreaming.||
The Mich-WI-PSU trio is 5-6-7 in the last rankings. If you think a conference championship and a win over the No. 6/7 team in the country isn't enough to leapfrog a team that's lost 2 of 3, sat at home this week, and saw one of their big wins of the season get absolutely destroyed, then I don't know what to tell you.
|20 hours 51 min ago||Because the WI-PSU winner||
Because the WI-PSU winner will jump Michigan. If you think playing and winning the Big Ten championship game is completely irrelevant to the committee...then I think you are delusional.
|20 hours 54 min ago||Mich needed both to lose||
As of now, Alabama is in, Ohio State is in, and Washington is in. That leaves Clemson, the B1G champ game teams, and Michigan to fight over the #4 spot. If Clemson loses, I think the commitee will take the B1G champ game winner -- regardless of who it is -- over Michigan.

Maybe. Michigan couldn't move the ball anyways so it still probably ends in a FG.

Last year is another good example because Iowa played absolutely no one and kept skating their way through undefeated. The one good team they played, MSU, beat them. And then the second good team they played, Stanford, kicked the shit out of them so bad the game was over in the first quarter.
MSU I'm fine with, because even though the two key wins were kinda flukey, they still won. But I don't think its a stretch to say they were the third best team in the Big Ten and the Big Ten probably has a different champion if they are playing OSU or Michigan in the championship game. Ohio State was clearly the best team in the conference, but didn't get a chance to play because of dumb divisions.

One of these days, a player is going to turn around and punch him in the face for that. And that man will be a hero worthy of a parade.
Also, this is why I wish hockey's love of fighting would transfer to other spots. Try and cheap shot people in hockey? Someone is going to pound you for it, the refs will let you fight, tell you to go sit in a corner for a bit, and then everyone carries on.
