After watching both Sparty and Herky both fall flat, that only confirms it, that Ohio State really was the best B1G team this year. Yeah, I'm still salty. 

The committee really needs to reevaluate how they place the top four teams in the nation. Two years in and already two big screw-ups in who they placed at #3. TCU was robbed last year and Stanford this year. They also need to get their heads out their asses and stop trying to make New Year's Eve football a thing. 

Anyways, glad we finished this season with a bowl win :)

What's that Zeke? What's that Bosa? You changed your mind? You wanna come back for another season?!?!! Great News!!!!

Both of our losses were close, but we lost to a much better team.

We would both have one ranked win, ours being on the road, theirs at a neutral game site. 

The two FCS games they played can pretty much be thrown out the window.

Their best non-conference win is a (5-7) Illinois; every other team they played doesn't qualify for a bowl game. Our best non-conference win is the MAC West Champion NIU who plays for the MAC title on Friday. Not to mention we beat two other bowl eligible teams.

We play in a stronger conference than they do. 

When all else fails, we can always hope that our brand name will do some work for us. An Alabama vs. Ohio State rematch or Oklahoma vs. Ohio State match-up looks much better than if you were to stick UNC in that #4 slot.

They punished Baylor last year for scheduling a weak non-conference. UNC's best non-conference win is Illinois (5-7). We beat three bowl eligible teams in the non-conference. One of them NIU who won their division and is playing for the MAC Championship.

Regardless of what happens to us in the rankings, I don't see them putting UNC in. They need to jump up ten spots in two weeks. They've played two FCS teams this year, and we saw how well that worked out for Baylor last year. Not to mention UNC doesn't exactly sound like an exciting matchup against Alabama, Oklahoma, or whoever is number one. Putting Stanford or Ohio State in is much more entertaining and not to mention they both carry the brand name. 

I do agree that if Stanford beats USC for the second time this season gives them a good change to jump us.

Oklahoma is in. There's no doubt about it. We won't get in over them. They have wins over three ranked teams; we only have one win over a ranked team. It comes down to Alabama or Clemson losing.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

For Ohio State to get in without playing in the B1G championship, there needs to be some big upsets in the next two weeks. 

This Week, Notre Dame and Florida need to lose. This eliminates Notre Dame altogether and sends a 2 loss team to the SEC championship. Regardless of how everything else plays out, if Ohio State and Baylor both win, I think Ohio State jumps Baylor, we would have a better win on the road. If not, then Baylor has two opportunities to lose, this week at TCU and next week against Texas. 

Championship week: Iowa needs to beat MSU. A 2 loss MSU team would fall below us in the rankings; I'm not so sure a 1 loss Iowa team would. A 2 loss Florida team would need to beat Alabama in the SEC championship, or in the event a Alabama were to lose to Auburn it wouldn't matter. Then USC or UCLA needs to beat Stanford in the Pac12 championship. 

TL;DR:

  • Stanford > ND
  • FSU > UF
  • Iowa > MSU
  • USC/UCLA > Stanford
  • UF > Alabama

BONUS:

  • Auburn > Alabama
  • TCU/Texas > Baylor

Wouldn't it be hilarious if the SEC champ missed the playoff altogether?

If we only drop this far in the playoff rankings, we could still have a decent shot at the playoffs as crazy as it sounds. We would just need MSU to lose against Penn State. We would have two wins against ranked competition, and one would be a top five win.

Most importantly, I just hope our offense can get its act together and have a strong performance next week.

Muck Fichigan, GO BUCKS!
