[West] Division Standings updated above. Anyone not understanding why you should have been rooting for the Buckeyes the last 2 weeks? They are the ONLY team to have supplied non-M victories to the ENTIRE [West] Division.

Take Ohio out of the equation and what do folks think?  After M beats MSU, do you want MSU to beat Nebraska?  At this point, MSU is probably more a rival than Nebraska.  But, under that scenario, having MSU beat Nebraska is good for M.  It opens up some breathing room and means that M could drop a conference game against anybody (including Nebraska) and still be assured of going to the championship game (based on the highly likely assumption that Iowa loses another game in conference).

I get the just take care of business and you don't have to "back-in" sentiment, but backing in would be better than being shut out.
