We considered Fielding as a middle name for our son but I chickened out at the last minute.

I sure hope they don't. Say, for argument's sake, that Shea gets injured and now we need to plug in Peters for OSU and beyond. If the committee decides to extrapolate and assumes we wouldn't be as good, there would be a revolt. The question should be: What has the team done THIS season up until TODAY? If Shea or another star gets injured I sure hope we would have earned our spot based on our performance to date. If so, same argument should be applied for ND if Book were to be out for a while.

I get the sentiment behind "no more Alabama vs. Clemson" but if they are worthy of a top 4 playoff berth based on their performance THIS season, then they deserve to be in.

My issue is with the committee slobbering over Alabama's dominance the past few seasons. No. Decide on the top 4 based on THIS season. THIS season's strength of schedule. THIS season's performance. Same with UCF. "20 game winning streak dating back to last season!!" No thanks. What has UCF done THIS season? 

I hope the committee will judge based on this season and this season only.

This is not an original comment, but I remember reading somewhere how Alabama is now being rewarded for their dominance in past seasons, in addition to the current season. Add this to hysterical headlines such as "Is this the best CFP team in history?" and you have to wonder, if a one-loss Bama makes it in, to what extent is that due to a halo effect given their recent history?

I don't think this is fair. OSU is a pretty strong academic institution and is usually in the top 100 of these world universities rankings. I know they have some strong departments that probably pull up this ranking. Of course, Michigan does so many things so well that our ranking is near the top :)

08/13/2018 - 3:07pm I wouldn't take stock in one…

I wouldn't take stock in one ranking methodology, but a pretty strong indication of quality is a school appearing near the top of multiple lists. Michigan, Berkeley, UCLA, UW Seattle, UT Austin are consistently in the top tier of public institutions year after year on various metrics, including research funding, scholarly output, peer reputation, etc. 

I know we like to bash on OSU, but OSU is a pretty strong academic school. It's just not as good overall as Michigan. MSU though... we know the jokes by heart. 

Go Blue!

While I don't want to admit it, if this exact scenario happened at Michigan, we'd have our own share of victim shaming going on at mgoblog. Sports has an inherently tribal aspect, and it comes out in ugly ways sometimes. 

FWIW, the OSU fans at r/cfb on reddit seem way more balanced on this issue than what I have seen on 11W.

You heard it here first! On today’s M-Zone, Coach Harbaugh asked Fab Five’s Chris Weber to be an honorary team captain at one of the 2018 season Michigan Football game! He said YES!!! Go Blue!! #goblue

No doubt a growing proportion of students reliant upon larger and larger student loans. A huge millstone around the neck upon graduation. Not just MSU, but everywhere.

04/18/2018 - 2:50pm In a conversation with Lisa

In a conversation with Lisa Lorincz in the crowded board room after the meeting Friday, Guerrant said her interpretation had been that Engler wasn't directly offering a settlement but engaging in a “philosophical discussion” about what amount would be acceptable. 

 

Yes, hundreds of young girls were sexually abused and here's Engler wanting to have a philosophical discussion. Is this for fucking real? 

Burn it all to the ground.

We had a similar freak out about Nate Wolters a few years back. 

We beat (the other) SDSU by double digits that year.

I would not be surprised by a double digit win against Houston on Saturday.

I wonder whether the allure of Trey Young singlehandedly gets the team in. Not saying it's fair, but I wouldn't put it past the selection committee.

I saw a comment on Reddit the other day, suggesting that if Michigan wins the national championship this year, they should hang a banner that says 2018 NCAA Champions, with the 8 overlaying a barely visible 3. 

Genius.

Give the players a few days off, then it's shooting free throws. Nothing but free throws. Overhand, underhand, sidearm, bounce to the left, bounce to the right, one handed, anything.

Now that's what I call finding the silver lining!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe in the Olympics, a silver medalist can retroactively get the gold if the gold medalist is stripped of the medal due to doping or some other disqualifying event after the fact. 

So, I would like to see that applied here.

let me tell you, replace every instance of "michigan state" with "university of michigan" and i would hope most of us would burn all of our fan apparel, hide our diplomas, and wear sackcloth and ashes in utter shame. this has nothing to do with msu. it has everything to do with suffering children and depraved adults. the fucking rivalry is irrelevant.
