B1G games. Who do we root for?

Submitted by Blu on October 22nd, 2011 at 2:53 PM

Just looking to get some opinions from the board, mostly on the msu/wisco game. Do we root for Wisconsin in this game, or not pay much attention to the result? State fans will think you're just upset about losing last week. However, an msu loss helps our case for winning the division. Your thoughts?

How could rooting for Wisconsin be a "little brother" move?

Weren't they the guys who hoped we would lose to Ohio State even if it cost them a B1G Championship / Rose Bowl last year?

It's not a "Little Brother Move", I always root against psu, osu, nd etc etc.

Wisc could help Michigan out tonight.

It's not the perfect scenerio but it's all we have.

Man, Minnesota is bad enough, the officials do not need to screw them.  Fumbles that bounce forward out of bounds are returned to the spot of the fumble... but the officials gave them the forward spot on 4th and 1.  Wow.

Well, for the sake of clawing our way back to the top of the Legends division, I pulled for Indiana, only to see them destroyed by Iowa. Minnesota, I will predict, has no shot in hell against Nebraska. Wisconsin will probably punch State in the throat for that rather humiliating loss the last time they met in East Lansing. That being said, I am going 1-2 tonight, I think, for my personal "I Want My Team On Top Of Its Division" campaign.

I'm rooting for Wiscy because that hurts MSU, but also because it helps the overall Big 10 if a dominant team like Wiscy stays undefeated, which would help toward the end for bowl opportunities. In other words, if UM meets up with Wiscy in the BTCG (and losses), it might still net them a nice BCS bid because Wiscy would be undefeated.

Of course, that's presuming a good deal, which isn't necessarily realistic. Still, for today only, go Badgers.

Come out next week and crush Purdue before I spend anymore time worrying about who needs to do what for us to win the division. Michigan should focus on Michigan.
