They were actually doing it to help out Northwestern fans, who all obviously root for the Cubs.

Hindsight is 20-20.  All objective criteria in 2006 pointed to OSU and Mich being #1 and #2.  You have to go with what you see, not on future possibilities. What I see thus far -- and mind you, it is just my personal observation -- is leading me to think that OSU/Mich are 2 of the best 4.  Alabama is also there.  Many weeks are left in the season, so this could all change.  However, by the time the selection committee goes to pick the 4 teams, we'll all have a pretty good ideas as to which four teams are the best.

Why?  If the goal of the selection committee is to find the BEST four teams, then why is not conceivable for a conference champion to get left out?  Particularly if you are a 2-loss conference champion in a conference that was not that great during the regular season.

Winning your conference does not automatically make you one of the best four teams.  What if Florida State ended up winning the ACC?  Would you put them in over the loser of OSU/Mich?

Comment 19 Oct 2016

If the goal of the committee is to find the best four teams, and if OSU/Mich enter the game undefeated with the victor pulling off a narrow win, then probably.  While winning your conference championship is ONE factor, so are many others, including strength of schedule, margin of victory, etc.  If the winner of the PAC-12 / Big12 is not the better team, then they should not leap frog OSU/Mich just because they won their conference.  Why would they?  Now, this argument is much easier to make if the PAC-12 / Big12 champion has a loss; even stronger with 2 losses.  

Is a one-loss Washington, PAC-12 winner, a better football team than a one-loss OSU/Mich team that lost in a close game to the #2 or #3 team in the country?  Despite winning the conference, I'd say no.

North Market is a must for lunch! Eat at Hot Chicken Takeover and then get some Jeni's ice cream for dessert.  You can also grab a few macaroons from Pistacia Vera and Stauf's Coffee.

That's FOUR COLUMBUS STAPLES, imo, on one trip.

I'd go Thursday, as it is usually not as busy.

OREGON.  Chip Kelly had a nice thing going, and what Oregon did the last 6 or so year was "cute."  They proved however, very beatable against the bluebloods.  Moreover, real powerhouses are now after the speed demons, meaning Oregon-type recruits have more options today than they did in the past.  I doubt they recover.  They will remain a middle-of-the-pack Pac-12 team and will not win a national title in football.  

Good thing they have cute uniforms... (Oh yeah; powerhouses also caught on to that trend -- we too have flashy alternative uniforms that bring all the recruits to our yard)

Credit cards are a great credit-building tool.  When you open one, make an auto payment every month for the full balance.  That forces me to be disciplined and use them as if they were debit cards.  The upside? Cash back and travel points.
