Our win isn't "demonstrably better" in the eyes of the committee- they view Michigan state and Kansas state  almost equally. TCU had some near misses, but we did too (remember the double OT game against a penn state team that will finish 6-6? Or losing in the third quarter against Indiana?) 

The Big XII has some bad teams but it's still better than the average big ten team. TCUs SOS is in the 30s while ours is in the 50s. I'm not sure why you're trying to write down their Baylor loss. Even if you think they're terribly overrated, they're world's better than Virginia Tech by every measure. 

All that said, I think if our resume was: wins over MSU, Wisconsin, Minnesota, bad loss; that trumps wins over Kansas state, Minnesota, respectable loss.

Why? Right now their resume is slightly better. Their best win is over 12 while ours is over 10, we both best Minnesota, and their loss to #7 is far more respectable than ours. I think we edge them out if we add a win over Wisconsin but we don't have much of a case to jump them yet.

Child's play.  Hole up in the facility bathroom, proxy mine the one entrance and wait for other fools who respawned to come out of the vent.

...I just got the crazy strong urge to play this - why haven't they put old classics online yet?

...meanwhile, the 6-10 NFC South winner will be in.

I was there for Bill Willis and Chic Harley's.  They played some highlights on the jumbotron then a few OSU officials (Gene Smith, maybe Archie, etc) handed him a giant framed jersey as they pulled the curtain off the name on the stadium.  Whole thing took maybe 3 minutes.

Not too shocking - he's only thrown 8 on the year, and 5 of those were against App St and Miami (OH).

Have to feel bad for him a little.  Any other year and he'd be the star back of the league, but with Gordon and Abdullah choosing the same year to go crazy he's still in a shadow.  Just to put it in perspective for our fans - he's got more yards in 10 games than Hyde had in his 11 last year.  If he wasn't playing us this week I'd like his chances to get to 2000.
