i'm standing in line at the grocery store today and an old guy with an ohio hat on says to me, 'but why did you guys stop giving the ball to robinson?'

Wonder what impact the final AP rankings will have on our bowl invitation.

 

Someone should create a 'bowl selection show viewing thread' so that mgobloggers can speculate on where Michigan might land...and vs. whom.

And to think Notre Dame on the road by 7, Ohio on the road by 5....I don't remember the Bama score but I'm certain we would have beaten them at home..../-S

In this years bcs there will be the ap #13,16,22 and a NR team.  Hell of a system they got going there, really matches up the best of the best.

Who's pre-season #1 next year?  Alabama, LSU, Florida, FSU, OSU all bring back a lot of guys.  Is Alabama again the preseason favorite to repeat?  Ugh, will there every be a day when Alabama isn't the best team in the country again?

People think I'm crazy, but I remember growing up in the 90's and the B10 always was the best conference top to bottom.  A Florida, Oklahoma, USC, etc, might have a team that ended up being the top, but they were usually far and away the top in their division.  Remember when the game for the brown jug used to be a competition? Purdue had Drew Brees.  Even seeing a top 10 Iowa was not uncommon.  Up to 2006 mich-ohio game, outside illinoi, northwestern, and indiana, any team in the B10 was a tough game.  The tide of college football switched that day.  But it is cyclical, it will swtich back eventually......

Maybe WC Ford I & II will fire Ken Schwartz and throw so much money at Saban that he can't refuse. Nick could hardly do any worse, and if he failed again we could laugh at him. If he succeeded, then the Lions might be worth rooting for.

Saban was horrible as the Dolphins coach. NFL is set up to be fair. You can't oversign in the pros - the smart guys win in the NFL. Sorry, I'm not sold on Saban as a great coach - he just has so much more talent bc he's a robot who could care less about people's lives. I'll take a guy like Brady over Saban every day of the week.

that we lost by a total of 12 points combined to the #1 and 3 teams. With a combined total of 10 turnovers. Hell, if we could have cut the turnovers down to 5 we win one of those. If not both. And then were sitting here at 10-2 and may have a BCS bid in hand for a second straight year. All in all, a decent year that was a few turnovers away from even better.

With a combined total of 10 turnovers.

That is my frustration with the 2012 season ... what might have been had we protected the ball a bit more.  We might still have lost those games ... but turning the ball over that many times is a pretty good way to make sure the game is lost.

I'm perplexed as to why Nebraska is still ranked, or at the very least, ranked above Wisconsin.  10-3 and a nice regular season yes, but they were dismantled yesterday like I've rarely seen.
