the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

You are not oblivious with Alzheimers. You are cognizant and suffer with the deteriorization evey inch of the way.
Both are horrible illnesses that could make a sane person consider suicide, as is Parkinsons, advanced Diabetes, and a dozen other crappy illnesses.
No need to try to win the Misery Olympics.

We are a case in point. We were not able to replicate the luck we had in 2011 in 2012. It can be argued that 2012 was a better team, but it had a worse record than the 2011 team.
The same thing is likely to happen to ND. I'm not saying they'll go 5-7, but they won't go undefeated or even have only one loss.

We actually have more baseball National Championships than we do basketball National Championships.
Had Michigan won the basketball NC this year, we would be the only school with multiple National Championships in each of the big 4 major sports of football, basketball, baseball, and hockey.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Nobody may show up to||
Nobody may show up to watch it, but IMO, the 2014 schedule is really not that bad from a difficulty point of view. Yes the four hardest opponents - ND, MSU, NW, OSU - are all on the road, but they are broken up very nicely.
We have App State at home before we go on the road to ND, we have a Bye before MSU, we have Indiana before NW, and we have a bye then MD before OSU. We also don't play Nebraska or Wisconsin.
I would argue that this year's schedule is actually harder. We don't play all our toughest opponents on the road, but we have to play them all back to back in November.

Aren't GA student tickets all season tickets? If so, then to oversell them, DB has to oversell season tickets.
It will work great for Indiana games when half the students will stay home. But for Ohio State when they all want to go to the game . . . .not so much. You can't just give them a voucher for a future flight for the biggest game of the year.

We are going to have to start scheduling Wisconsin as an OOC game if we ever expect to play them.

Yeah, we did just fine in the Big Two-Little Eight era in the '70s and 80s when OSU was the only compelling game and it was not at home half the years. We still drew 100,000.

DB will blackmail the people who want to drop season tickets in 2014 with the 2015 home schedule. If you drop out in 2014, you won't be able to get 2015 tickets.

'Course, then we'd be tempted to wear them with our blue jerseys at home . . . . which would also look sweet.

We all seem to like the ones that we win in. I'm not sure we would all be wearing the UTL jerseys if we got blown out. I do think the Outback uni's would have looked sweet with blue numbers outlined in maize instead of the other way around. Love the maize block M on the shoulders.

I thought the same thing. What the fuck is he talking about? It's college football, not a Proctor & Gamble brand category. His constant buzzword diarrhea makes my skin crawl . . . and I'm a Marketing MBA from the Ross B-School. There's a time and a place, you know?
