Totally unacceptable . No one should ever cheer for msu ever, let alone a so called um fan.

Count me as a member of the 14-0 club. There isn't a game on the schedule we shouldn't win.

You think the Big East v. ACC Orange Bowl match ups of the past few years were snoozers? Ha! Just wait until you see ACC v. MAC!

I'm so freaking sick of the SEC and Bama in particular that, with a very, very small list of exceptions, I would be cheering for whoever was playing them in the championship game. So, sad to say, go Irish.

No, Alabama wouldn't claim 13 titles. They would claim one, the BCS National Championship. The others don't matter. The AP is currently like the Blog Poll. It can be interesting to discuss but doesn't carry any actual weight.
And while the AP poll is the oldest, it is no longer an active participant in the selection of a national champion. It had weight on its own until 1997. From 1998-2004 it was a part of the process of selecting which teams would play for the national championship. From 2005 onward it has been irrelevant.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||All participants being the||
All participants being the powers that be within college football, not the media. The AP was invited to be part of the process of selecting the participants for a national championship game but that's all. Prior to 1998, sure, the AP title meant something. That's because there was no system in place to select a champion. Following the nonsense of the 1997 season, the only polls that matter are the ones agreed upon to select the participants in the championship game. Once that final poll is released, it no longer matters. Whoever wins the game is the sole national champion.
The AP could have decided to randomly vote UNC #1 in a poll and give them a trophy after the culmination of March Madness this past year. It wouldn't have made them co-champions along with Kentucky. There was a system in place and whoever won out was the sole champion. Ditto for the BCS. It's an extremely flawed system but it is still the system.
And this has nothing to do with USC in particular. I don't like them or cheer for them (unless I feel it could help Michigan), but I don't have a strong dislike for them either.

"the reason you don't hear "two championships" from Tressel and "six championships" from Saban is that they didn't win two or six, they won one and three."
You can't have it both ways. Either there have been 14 national championships awarded since the BCS started in 1998 or there have been 28 (counting 2004, otherwise 13 and 26). To say that there were 15 championships in 14 years (or 14 championships in 13 years discounting 2004) doesn't work.
Prior to the 2003 season, all participants had agreed on a system to determine the champion. USC pathetically clings to a meaningless title because they didn't like the results of that system after the fact.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||The AP trophy doesn't||
The AP trophy doesn't actually mean anything anymore though. The BCS champion is the only champion since 1988. If the AP trophy meant anything, we would talk about Tressel's 2 championships, Saban's 6 championships, etc.

But in 2006 his politicking allowed his team to jump a better Michigan team and play for a championship. This year the only thing he can accomplish is to move up in a poll that hasn't meant anything since it stopped being used to help pick the championship game participants almost a decade ago.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||No, there was only one||
No, there was only one national champion in 2003. USC was #1 in the AP pollbut going into the 1998 srason the powers that be decided that there would be a national championship game the winner of whichwould be the national champion. For several years the AP poll helped decide who ewould play in that game but ultimately the sole national champion was the winner of that game.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Ideally, UCLA will knock off||
Ideally, UCLA will knock off Stanford then lose to Oregon so the PAC 12 only gets one BCS bid. That's our best shot at getting a spot.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Why would he bother||
Why would he bother politicking? They can't win the national championship because they can't play in the championship game. They could potentially be #1 in the AP poll but the last time there were two national champions was 1997.

I'm actually glad Ohio beat Wisconsin today. No they aren't actually playing for anything, but putting an end to their perfect season is so much better than handing them their 2nd loss.

|28 weeks 2 days ago||Half the distance to the goal||
Half the distance to the goal is probably the worst rule in football. A 15 yard penalty from the 4 should take it to the 1, not be reduced to a 2 yard penalty. It's only 1 yard and we scored anyway, but It's still an awful rule

So apparently the break up of the CCHA has some people ticked, I heard a lot of "Big Ten Sucks" shouts. Once Michigan came back, they started with "F*** Ann Arbor!" chants. Oh, I can't wait to move back to civilization.

Clean but hard hit. NMU player was down 4 or 5 minutes, wasn't moving his limbs. The refs waited forever to call the penalty too. If he had popped back up, it wouldn't have been a 5 minte penalty.

Im at the game, a couple of the penalties were pretty iffy. I thinkthe refs are trying to keep things in check and over doing it.Still time to makea comeback.
