to go up and snag the Goodyear Blimp. (Still don't know if anyone was hurt.)
Peppers had little time to react after turning his head, but no one on a Zeppelin was in danger.

that has touched the ground intentionally in any direction.
In the 100 yds between the goal lines, it is legal to bat a fumbled ball backward.

and their cachet into the playoffs.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Indiana surprisingly gave OSU a competitive game||
but they also gave Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, and Wake Forest competitive games.
|1 day 2 hours ago||There will be no more controversy than last year||
If the committee has any collective brains, they will note the lesson college football taught again last year. Remember that vaunted SEC West that was an NFL division in disguise? And that Ohio State team that didn't belong in the Playoff?
Last season demonstrated once again that the conventional wisdom is often wrong. Last year it was totally wrong.
Taking only one team from four of the five conferences ensures that all but one team won its way into the playoff. As long as there are only four playoff spots for five conferences, there will likely be controversy around which conference got left out every year. We had that last year with the Big 12 (TCU/Baylor).
There won't be more controversy than that, however.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Another analogy...Pass interference is not reviewable||
On the other hand, the NFL should not employ officials like Greg Wilson who cannot see what was obvious to grandmothers across America.
Unless, of course, Greg Wilson was uber-quick-thinking and seized upon an opportunity to give a much needed boost to the very well-known Seahawks and their sagging playoff chances.

|1 day 17 hours ago||He also had a drop||
of the ill-advised back-across-the-middle Rudock throw that Jake would have gotten away with had Houma caught it. (IME, it was still a bad idea back across his body into the middle of the field with one Houma and three Maryland defenders in the area.)
|1 day 18 hours ago||Darn. I bothered to Google this time||
Had Mario played just one less game, an appearance in the B1G Championship Game (plus the subsequent bowl) would have made him eligible. Two less games and he would have been eligible no matter how many games Michigan ends up playing.
As it is, Michigan will have to accept the NFL's playoff invitation after we win the CFP Championship in dominant fashion and win at least one NFL playoff game to advance to a second.
Good luck, Mario!

than their pre-season expectations. It's turned an away game slate from one with a couple of battles into one that a sweep is a good bet--the most likely outcome in my book and a 40% likelihood according to the Massey numbers above.
|2 days 2 hours ago||"They took a pretty good shot from Indiana"||
If OSU is assessed by what they've done on the field this year, they're no where near #1.
If all information on OSU is used (i.e. they've got basically all the players from their National Championship team back), then they have to be ranked #1.
They're in some kind of bad Funk right now. (Is he coaching there now? That might do it.)

Too easy. Why do this now?

4EverBlueGirl beat me to it, albeit in a less snarky way.
|2 days 17 hours ago||C'mon, you can take the next logical step||
Yes, "Vegas" finds the market price for the spread.
If the market spread were consistently predictably wrong, there would be easy money to be made (over multiple plays). In most liquid markets, any knowledge of easy money to be made draws the smart money in volume to that side, which causes the market price to become the price at which there's no easy money to be made.

what we thought in the pre-season.
Preseason, we wouldn't have expected to sweep
Now I do.
Others have begun to say that the MSU game is winnable. Further, MSU's Oregon win looks a lot more pedestrian after Utah destroyed Oregon in Autzen. The home slate, in order of increasing difficulty
Then there's the B1G championship game against an opponent fromt the West that will be weaker than MSU & OSU.
So that's one rabbit out of a hat (OSU), three tough wins, and five taking care of business. Likely? No. But it's no longer crazy talk. Just a very possible long shot.
