Correct and clearly the committee made the right decision considering Alabama won the title last year. I'm pointing out that the poster above saying OSU 'gets the benefit of the doubt because of prior years' doesn't really hold water.
In 2016 OSU beat (at the time) AP #14 (OK) and #8 (WIS) teams on the road, and #9 (NEB) and #3 (MICH) team at home, while losing to unranked PSU on the road on a blocked FG.
Penn state beat (at the time) AP #2 (OSU) and UR (TEMPLE) at home, #6 (WIS) in BIG championship game, and got obliterated by #4 (MICH) and lost to UR (PITT) on the road.
OSU was a better team than PSU in 2016, which is why they made the playoff. Also we got to watch them get obliterated by Clemson, which was very satisfying.
You can argue the conference championship is important, but in that case OSU should have made it over Alabama last year (which clearly they should not have) since they won their conference and had a more difficult schedule.

Well, OSU did not get the benefit of the doubt last season considering they were the BIG champion last season and were left out. And the team that replaced them (Alabama) won the championship.
Any playoff regardless of number of teams is always going to have debate. I think the 8 team playoff would be the perfect number. There will still be snubs and debate, but Power 5 champs, +highest mid-major, +2 at large really seems to be the best format.

Very true. Hate to give credit to something OSU but Eleven Warriors is set up very well. Small banner on top, new content appears right on the top, minimal clicks to get to different pages...unfortunately all things that are lacking on this current version of MGoBlog.
I completely agree that the font is unnecessarily large and the whitespace is overwhelming on this site currently.
It's also really frustrating that you can't save user preferences (eg. I like having 100 comments per page but as soon as I leave the current page it reverts back to 50/page and takes me back to page 1 of comments regardless of where I left off)

I've seen several other people mention this and it's more of an annoyance than an actual issue, but swapping the Diaries and Message Board sections would make a lot of sense so you don't have to scroll down as far to see active topics off the main page. The Board is updated much more regularly and gets far more traffic (assuming based on post activity) than Diaries.

#1- Awesome news. Very nostalgic for the CCHA days but the BIG will continue to improve as a conference as (hopefully) more teams continue to join.
#2- I'm not even seeing arrows to up/down vote. Any suggestions?

Just for reference:
Dantonio went 7-5, 4-7, 7-5 at Cinci before taking MSU job.
Paul Chryst was 6-7, 7-6, and 6-7 at Pitt before getting the Wisco job.
Narduzzi has gone 8-5, 8-5, 5-7 at Pitt, and Pitt has only really had 3 better seasons (2002- 9-4; 2008 9-4; 2009 10-3) since the early 80s. Seems like he is probably in line for the MSU job, which would be nice to be able to get revenge on him for the RR/Hoke era.

How about the screen pass in general? I know Harbaugh has previously said he's never been a good screen coach. Have the o-line problems prevented us from using it effectively? It obviously can be such a weapon against the rush and to help the QB from getting pummeled.

I assume OP is talking about 5 star QB recruit Hunter Johnson, who just announced he is transferring from Clemson.

Correct, they changed this as you said.
I remember when Jhonny Peralta was suspended 50 games in 2013, the Tigers had the option and decided to add him to the postseason roster. I think the change where he is automatically ineligible for postseason play is for the better.
Seems like they should also change the rule to where your suspension only starts after you are eligble to play (eg. not on the DL, etc.).
|05/15/2018 - 12:45pm||Couldn't agree more. It's not||
Couldn't agree more. It's not a problem of getting older. Having to navigate to the 'Climate' screen just to change the head vs foot blower and then having to bring up an additional screen requiring more button presses to change the fan speed is infuriating. Not to mention the touchscreens aren't perfect so lagging is present. It is so much less efficient than quickly turning knobs/pressing buttons.
Touchscreens are handy but keep the buttons also!

MSU had a better season than us last year (albeit we had QB injuries), and return nearly their entire team. Why wouldn't they be ranked ahead of us? We have a lot to prove on the field this season.

Well aware the blue letters are on the concourse. I happen to think the letters look real nice on top of the press box.

I like the championship years on the boxes idea. Also bring the letters back!

I think Mich definitely has the potential to be a contender but we need to pump the breaks. Major questions still lurk at OL and WR. We have lots of WR talent but they are going to have to make huge leaps forward with route running to create separation this season, which I think they will.
Shea is definitely a playmaker but I wouldn't be surprised to see growing pains from a shaky o-line and learning a new system.
I'll be really disappointed but not surprised to see a 9-3, 8-4 type season with the brutal schedule this year. Hoping for the best though. The defense is going to be great and hopefully the offense will come together.
