I agree, but for that to matter in this case they would then have to put in two Big Ten teams and not the conference champion. While Michigan and OSU are clearly the top two teams, there is no way the committee can do this. It would be a terrible precedent. They will have no problem having Wisconsin or PSU jump us because they have won the conference. They may even do it because they won their division. They feel this is the only way to keep the regular season relevant.
|1 week 1 day ago||Previous history||
The committee's history shows they have done all kinds of provocative things with their rankings before the conference championships. But when they actually put teams in the playoffs, they have gone straight up conference champs.
Really, all these rankings are just to spur discussion and draw attention to the sport. Thus, they are driven to cause some controversy with them, but the final ranking not so much.
|1 week 1 day ago||No chance||
I am sorry to say, but I think we have zero chance of making the playoffs. Furthermore, if we were to make the playoffs it would set a dangerous precedent that we would not want. They would have to either completely disregard the conference champion or put two Big Ten teams in and disregard the outcome of the game. While there are good reasons to set aside the outcome, referees and a close game on the road, nobody should want the committee deciding who they like better when there is an on field result. This becomes even more important when they expand to eight teams.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Why?||
Across the country a lot of games are on Saturdays. So playing on Saturdays is not some great way of avoiding high school games. I am glad Michigan is not partaking because I enjoy my Saturday tradition, but I have no problem with other Big Ten schools doing it. I also recognise that other schools don't have the traction Michigan has, so again I welcome them to have at it.

It's nationally televised on a network, that is still something that can be sold. And it is the number 3 team vs a team that is currently on a 4 game losing streak, hard to hype that beyond the state of Michigan.

I may not agree with all of it, but it is nowhere near that dumb.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Amazing day||
He had an amazing day. He could have been called for targeting twice, hope he fixes that so we don't lose him at any point.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Defense||
That is fair, but what about the defense? I was really surprised on that side of the ball, especially given the injuries.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I thought it was fair||
It is no different than what this blog has been saying. All the Hawaii caveats apply. The article didn't Michigan is overrated, just that we will find out more when they play a good team. Though I would think Wisconsin might be the first test, not state.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Nuts?||
It's not about who was more impressive, it's about which team is better. One impressive weekend or unimpressive weekend should not move you in the polls (within reason).
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||Yes, but||
You could say the same about Asiasi.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Huge fan, but....||
Huge fan of the audio content but the timing will make it almost impossible to listen too before the game. One day earlier and I would download it and listen on the commute. But this is coming from someone with kids, so listening first thing Saturday before the game is just not an option.

A truly brilliant movie

I had the same first reaction, but consider this. His sister's family depends on Tom Crean having a job. Tom's job depends on him winning championships. I get why he would want Tom to win. However, I think this is one of those cases where you say you are rooting for Michigan and internally cheer for Indiana.

I am going up to Michigan around August first and thought I would stop at Mden, this is looking less likely now.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||He is paying taxes||
And is probably getting hit by both the US and the country he is in.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||While I agree||
I can understand how a son would be in denial. It's the rest of the Penn State fans that I can't understand.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Most accomplished||
I would call her the most accomplished, but greatest athlete is really tough. If for no other reason than how does one define or measure an athlete.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Disappointed||
I don't like this at all. We gave up 2 million, went for what was best for NDs schedule and terrible for ours. And all this in addition to the way ND ended it before. This is strike one for Ward in my book, a very poor early showing for the new AD.

History says very few that much money in that short a time period are set for life. And he has a lot of life left.

How do you know he is set for life financially?
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Has it really been disproven?||
I have now seen two stadiums built in DC over the last twenty years and both have proven to be huge successes in revitalising their respective areas of the city. Both were built in places that you would never have walked prior to the stadium and little to no economic activity. Both cites are now great areas with a ton of economic activity irregardless of whether there is a game.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||Too expensive||
I get both sports bundles from Verizon, which includes all ESPN, FS1, BTN, and the local sports networks for $20. It also gives me AMC and the four networks.

This dude is ripped. Hard not to be excited about him coming to Michigan.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Different style||
He did Grecko Roman for the Olympic trials.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I agree, but||
I agree, but better a medical full ride scholarship than just a kick out the door.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||In all seriousness||
How would he do this? What motivation would others have to change? Would Michigan threaten to leave? That would not work at all.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||Statue of limitations||
The NCAA can only investigate so far back in time, and this is well beyond that. So while the NCAA can be criticised for much, this one they legitimately can not touch.

It is all Brian's fault!

Many people actually work that day.
