Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Does not really matter. Things go in cycles. PAC12 and Big 10 has its share of National championship in their history.
Taking your argument further, why not just crown SEC chamption has national champion and get it over?
|2 years 11 weeks ago||I agree with this too.||
I agree with this too. National Championship team with out participation of Big 10 and PAC 12 teams is not credible also.

I think U of Chicago should be included in Big 10, when we are talking about academic rankings. They are part of BIG10 academic consortium

sorry double post

There is no conflict what i mentioned. (probably not very clear, since english is not my native language)
I want to go back to old system that existed pre-BCS, where in Big 10 / PAC 10 play for Rose bowl. There would be no bias voter or scheduling at that time.
I understand that, I am in minority, other alternative would be having playoff with only conference champions. This again removes all the voter and scheduling bias.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||I dont think i said voter||
I dont think i said voter bias favors michigan, in fact opposite.
Compare these two teams. Michigan and Georgia
Pre-season rankings: 14 and 6
Non conference schedule: Michigan --- ND, Alabama, Airforce, UMass
Georgia --- Buffalo, Florida Atlantic, Georgia southern, and Georgia Tech. Also they miss Alabama, Arkansas, LSU in conference games. Not exactly murder's row.
They are ranked higher because of easier schedule.
For Michigan to move from 14 to top 4, they have to pretty much win everything. All those one loss ESS EEE SEE teams will be ahead of michigan with one loss.
Best solution will be having play off with conference champions or going back to old system which removes complete voter and scheduling bias.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||My counterpoint for Dr.||
My counterpoint for Dr. Saturday article would be, rankings based on pre-season bias, voter bias, scheduling bias is not very meaningful.
Just look at Michigan pre-season rank next year, they are/will be ranked lower because of strength of schedule. One loss to shitty team, they will be out like Okie state for any championship consideration no matter how tough their schedule will be.
Also NFL play lot interleague games and there is lot more parity.
My only solution would be going back to old days, when Big 10/Pac10 had one clear defined goal, which is making to Rose bowl.

I don't like playoffs. It makes regular season not meaningful.
There was article in WSJ recently titled "The regular season for suckers" concerning meaningless regular season in all sports except college football
"Being No. 1 in the regular season has become a quaint anachronism relevant only in college football. In each of the four major leagues, the best regular-season team has won the title less than half the time since 1966—with baseball (29%) being easily the lowest."
Other quote "Had this been college football, this season's 9-7 Giants might've been consigned to the Gator Bowl. (One could argue they would've deserved it, too."
I agree completely with the article, Please dont make this greatest game meaningless.

I for one want to go back to the old days of pre-BCS system. BIG 10 and PAC12 should play for all the marbles for getting Rose bowl bid.

University of Oregon is not the calibre of Cal, Stanford, USC or UDub, but still better than other Tight End schools like Oklohoma and Arkansas

Thx for posting. Your dairies are always interesting.

I also like to going back to the old bowl system and I would just stop there. There is much joy in just playing for Rose Bowl for B10 and Pac12 as the main goal. Let others figure out Mythical championship. But atlease for players and fans there is clear cut goal.

Sorry, SEC was the one who acted like "whiny bitches" and got away with it.

ND rumor is at the bottom of that article.
"If the Irish decide they can't remain as a football independent then the choice would be to pursue the ACC before the Big Ten."

"It means a guy who is down for Michigan above all else. That means Michigan comes before some other cushy college job or the NFL"
Does that mean Harbaugh and Miles are not Michgan Man? They spurned Michigan for cushy job at NFL and other college

I am worried, still have not received tix in the mail so far. I requested tix by US mail instead of 2 day UPS.

Thanks for the post.
That is the same way i feel about RR. He deserves another recruiting class.

Since I cannot open a new thread, I am posting this here
"Hart does seem intrigued by schools that run the spread, with the exception of his interest in Alabama. And with the recent happenings, it brings up the possibility that perhaps Hart would put Auburn back on his radar. He's always said he liked Auburn after each visit, the the Tigers run a wide-open offense under Gene Chizick.
"Everbody's in it now," Hart said."
He had a record breaking night yesterday
