|5 days 1 hour ago||What do Harbaugh's khakis and Peppers wildcat have in common?||
|5 days 3 hours ago||You can||
You can make a case for Wisconsin. They won @ Iowa and played us close in the big house. They lost to OSU in OT. And they would have neutral-ish field wins over LSU and PSU. That coupled with a conference championship, and I think the committee will definitely bump Wisconsin up. PSU I don't know. Clearly their resume would be worse but I don't trust the committee.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Disagree||
Until I heard the committee guy I would have agreed, but I'm starting to think we get in over PSU.
|5 days 10 hours ago||That's||
That's exactly what they are going to do. People would throw a fit if two B10 teams go and neither made it to the conference championship. Probably everyone in this thread is agreement we should be in over Wisconsin and PSU. Furthermore, a computer would like us over OSU because a double OT loss @ Columbus would suggest we are the better team.
But all of that doesn't matter. The committee is not in it to make the most rational and objective decision. They have their own agenda, and that agenda is not going to help us. So we can all talk in circles about who beat whom, but we're not going to the playoff.
|5 days 10 hours ago||They||
They beat LSU on a neutral-ish field. They won @ Iowa (we did not) and they have better losses than we do. Add in a conference championship win over PSU and it's just not happening. I'm not saying I personally think they are more deserving. I'm saying the committee is absolutely not going to take us over Wisconsin.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Completely disagree||
They had a very tough schedule and their only losses were at Mich in a close game and OSU in overtime. Maybe they don't have the quality wins but add in a conference championship, and I see absolutely no way we'd get in ahead of them. Our only shot is PSU winning and then getting screwed over because there's also no way we get in over OSU. But I don't see how the committee can take OSU over PSU, so ultimately I really don't think we have a chance.
|5 days 11 hours ago||I don't really see it||
because I think the committee will give weight to conference champs, but if conference champs are PSU, Colorado, and Ok State (who lost to CMU), I do think they are going to have a difficult time leaving us out.
If any of those teams lose though, I think their counterpart gets in ahead of us. Washington, no question. Wisconsin played us tight at home, so I think they'd have a sound case also accounting for their SOS and conference championship. I think OU may or may not get in ahead of us by winning the B12 and also reasonable losses, albeit not a pretty one to OSU.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Note||
Note the position of the camera relative to the line. This angle will naturally make it appear the ball is farther behind the line than it is. If this were exactly parallel with the line, it would be conclusive, but as it stands, it's not.
This is why it's infuriating that so many times the endzone cameras are not exactly on the goal line.

I think the only Speight explanation is that after the safety he tightened up under the pressure, which is strange to me because it has seemed that his ability to brush aside mistakes and not get rattled was one of his biggest assets all season. Here it appears a missed bomb, Chesson not pulling in that diving catch, and then the safety and ensuing 10-8 score really got to him.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Pay up||
1) Joe Buck
2) Kam Chatman
3) 1 Player: Avery Queen
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Lol||
I would gladly take Speight over Hurts, who is completely one dimensional. Darboh over either of their two best WRs, Stewart or Ridley. Jake Butt and our TEs easily over theirs. Damien Harris is better than any one back we have but not sure he's better than the our stable of backs. Plus Peppers. Absolutely laughable argument.
Michigan's offense is severely underrated in the media right now.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||During||
During the Louisville-Clemson game he was doing the Saturday OSU destroyed Rutgers and we beat Wisco, he said Michigan was not even on OSU's level. That the B10 was OSU and then everyone else. And also that Michigan was not in the same tier as Bama, OSU, Clemson or Louisville. Then he got in a Twitter war about it.
Now he's come around a bit, but he was pretty negative on Michigan relative to their ranking early in the year.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Did Jabrill||
Did Jabrill have 7 tds today? Don't think so. OVERRATED.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Still||
Still very disappointed we let Chatman get away. That is all.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Comparisons||
I have nothing wrong with comparing the two guys but people seem to overlook a couple things when talking about Speight making a Rudock type leap. Speight is greatly outperforming Rudock at this point in their respective seasons, as the data show. Completion % is a bit better, but most importantly INTs and Speight can actually hit a deep ball. So if Speight were to have the same relative jump in performance, that would put him in the Heisman race...
Speight isn't going to have the same relative jump in performance because the situations are completely different: RS soph who has been around and played snaps last year vs. proven grad transfer who had to learn the offense in a couple months. But Speight doesn't need a Rudock jump. He just needs the incremental improvement that you would hope out of a RS soph QB... He already has proven to be very solid, good at taking care of the ball, can make some amazing throws, and can finish games.
TL;DR: Speight doesn't need a Rudock-level jump and he's not going to have one. Holding his trajectory steady should be good enough to get us to the playoffs.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Oh man||
That whole third down exchange is phenomenal, but the best part is no one asked him about it. He clearly has just been waiting since Saturday to talk about it.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I thought||
I thought red alert was awesome too
|6 weeks 6 hours ago||Your||
Your counter example is that OSU lost to a team that we obliterated? That same team we obliterated is ranked and MSU is 2-5 and just got soundly beat by Maryland. They are not good at football. We are very good at it. And we match up fantastically. Don't overthink it.
|6 weeks 11 hours ago||I've seen||
I've seen a lot of posts like this and I don't get them. Is it just trying to keep your expectations low so you can be pleasantly surprised? Do you think Vegas doesn't know that this is MSU's only thing worth playing for? Do you think this game isn't important to our players?
They are going to give us everything they have, and we are going to curbstomp them. If they get 150 yards I'll be shocked. No knock on wood. Bloodbath coming up.

5 turnovers in an 11 play stretch in Minnesota game.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Woops||
Safe spaces and trigger warnings and what not.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Barrett||
Barrett made some key plays vs Wisco when he had to, but he is extremely underwhelming this year, especially through the air. He doesn't scare me and he doesn't deserve to be in the Heisman conversation.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||This||
This was the Speight I hoped and expected to see coming out of the bye. Helps not playing in a hurricane or against Wisconsin.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Kugler||
Kugler, frankly, must simply not be very good.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Colorado||
Colorado has a big game @ Stanford this weekend. Go Buffs.
|7 weeks 10 hours ago||It||
It just takes one of the ACC or Pac12 cannibalizing itself. If Clemson had actually lost, it would have been a bit more likely. The Big12 is terrible and Houston blew their shot. That leaves Bama, OSU, one of ACC/Pac12 conference champions, and then a controversy.
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||I think||
I think there's an outside chance we make the playoff losing in columbus. However, in that scenario OSU would have to be undefeated.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I think||
I think Mich fans have forgotten what typical sophmore pro style QB looks like after a rollercoaster grad transfer and 7 years of nonsense.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||What was||
What was your preseason expectation? Remember, this is a former 3* Borges recruit, playing as a RS soph, who had proven nothing last year on the field in limited play and beat out a transfer from Houston who lost his job.
He's not Jake Browning. He wasn't going to be. If you thought otherwise, you were simply fooling yourself.
