I traded DeSean Jackson for Mike Thomas before week one, and at first I thought I had made a mistake, but I definitely did not. Got TP off waivers, and they have been my two best receivers. I did take David Johnson over Zeke in the draft, but I figured they would both be excellent and at that point Zeke's status was still somewhat up in the air with legal issues.

On paper, I think we will shred them. In reality, they are always scary. I think the defense will make them look pedestrian and as long as the receivers keep their progress up, we should come  out on the right side of the scoreboard.

I think it's worth noting too that if we had lost to Wisconsin or Indiana or Northwestern and beaten Penn state, this conversation would be moot. That seems like a pretty nasty technicality to lose out on. We lost to a decent team so we get punished if we get left out of the playoff, while if we had lost to an average team or another team it would be irrelevant because we would still have a relatively easy path to the big ten championship game and wouldn't need help

How do you figure Michigan has the best wins? They beat Wisconsin at home by a TD, and beat up a decent Penn state team again at home. We beat up Oklahoma on the road, beat Wisconsin by 7 on the road, and crushed Nebraska at home. Michigan's resume is far from bad, but I don't think it can match ours. Either way it will be settled in two weeks.

Very good point. I also might add that if we got left out it would effectively be punishment for losing to a decent team rather than a crap team. If we had lost to any team in the division worse than Penn state or any of the West teams, we would probably have no problem getting to the championship game and the loss basically wouldn't matter

To be fair, I think if we had won that game last year, we would have looked slightly above average while beating TTUN and Iowa, then gotten pantsed in the CFP semifinal. The team just didn't seem to want it that bad last year.
