|1 week 1 day ago||In that scenario||
In that scenario we would win the tie breaker.
But that would also mean that one of OSU and MSU would have two losses due to us beating both of them and they also have their own head to head matchup. That would invoke the first division tie breaker of head to head result and we would have the win.

This is for 2023 with John Smith starting at Guard.

The way the B1G tie breakers are written it looks the same. OSU with a better record would win the division even though we would have less division losses in scenario 1 in scenario 2 we would win.
|1 week 2 days ago||Link in OP||
If two are tied it's head to head.
1. Records against each other
2. Division Records
3. Record of comparable teams in division
4. Record against common opponents
5. Playoff Rankings
|1 week 2 days ago||Bowl Tie-ins||
With the start of the College Football Playoff the B1G renegotiated their bowl tie-ins. The Bowl tie-ins we have now are in order
2. Rose Bowl (if not in playoff)
3. Orange Bowl (if not in playoff)
4. Citrus Bowl
5. Outback Bowl
The Cotton and Sugar are no longer available like they were in the BCS.
|1 week 2 days ago||For the sake of argument||
Your point is completely valid and would be the likely scenario, but for the sake of argument let's say MSU ended up the highest ranking of the three of us and found their way back into the playoff.

Don't forget that Jamie Morris was in the backfield with those guys in 1988.

I guess we could get to play them in the B1G championship game...

For those that dont know and are too lazy to google...simple syrup is equal part sugar and water brought to a boil then cooled.

The bye week isn't consistent from year to year, the best choice is to do it in the spring or early summer to avoid conflict altogether.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Same question/comment||
I logged in to say the same thing. I have asked Directv in the past and it has never been something they would do. I would even be ok with an idea like making a sports package you can buy like Sunday Ticket or Extra Innings where you pay annually and get the broadcasts for one team from each of the four pro sports.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Regional differences||
I have lived outside of Michigan most of my adult life and the only Michigan football game that I can remember not being televised was the Michigan @ UCONN game. I lived in Arizona at the time and due to some kind of Big East TV deal it was ABC only East of the Mississippi and not broadcast West. Having lived in Tennessee and now Georgia between BTN and ESPN all Michigan football games have been televised. I havent paid close enough attention to any other sport to notice how often they aren't.

Whatever the number is doesnt resonate with me. The individual men that I was friends with that didnt come home, thats what I remember.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||You are correct||
I am not sure about the supreme court case but years ago there was a considerable amount of media coverage because the state of Louisiana made the legal age to consume 21 but you were still allowed to purchase at the age of 18 and the federal government started threatening their highway dollars.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||The reason for the random number||
Being legally intoxicated at a BAC of 0.08 is tied to lobbying done by "Mothers Against Drunk Driving". The federal government while not in a posistion to force standards on individual states, are able to take a back door measures to enforce what they want. In this case the federal government tied tax revenue for road repairs to drunk driving standards each state has effectively forcing each state to comply with the federal 0.08 standard. While accidents associated with drinking alcohol and driving are above zero at every level of BAC there isnt a real spike in percentages until about 0.15 nearly twice what the current standard is.

The title makes it look like the new episode is already posted and this is a link.

It is assembled in Mississippi but all the profits got to Japan. I side with Mike Illitch and support our local Detroit automakers. At least those porfits stay local.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Well put||
You make a lot of good points and I still reach out to my parents for guidance on some things, however, you lose out on the opportunity to have someone that society says is already an adult to do adult things like be held personally accountable for their actions and to have to face learning from their mistakes head on. All situations are different and call for different responses but I have seen a number of people that have had alcohol and drug related incidents and their parents getting involved to try and help their chilldren to not make bigger mistakes only served to cause larger issues in the future because they didnt have to pay full price for their mistakes early on.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Legal Issue||
If this is a legal issue why not involve law enforcement? It seems kind of odd that when a young person is trying to figure out how to be an adult the institution that is supposed to help them figure it out says if you do this we will run and tell your parents.

what he did as a player is among the all-time greats. If you want to hold him accountable for his actions as a manager and say he can never be associated with baseball again that's fine and I agree with it, but what he did as a player? There is no question.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Pete Rose||
Every baseball commissioner who has kept the all-time hit king out of the hall of fame for something he did as a manager. Players who have cheated while playing the game are in and he is not, that is a travesty.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||lived on the west coast||
having lived on the west coast for a total of four football seasons, I can say definitively that I would not make sure I was awake and in front of my television for a noon eastern kickoff unless Michigan was playing. if they were I was pregaming by seven and if not I might catch the second half of a game that looked interesting.

I still remember his long touchdown run in the Rose Bowl like it was yesterday

the way the weather forecast works as far as % chance of rain works is as follows: if there is any chance (in this case 80%) the percentage reflects the amount of the forecast area will receive rain therefore if it's 80% chance it means that there is a 100% chance of rain occurring but only 80% chance it will happen where you are...much like it's a 100% chance that Jim harbaugh will coach next year but currently will only coach 80% of Michigan's games
