That doesn't really work with the Big 10 scheduling. Just look at last year.. the two best teams (IMO) were Michigan State and Ohio State. But, because of the Big 10 scheduling, Iowa was undefeated without playing Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State. Was Iowa one of the two best teams? Who knows... but undefeated is still undefeated.
The Committee also wants to ensure tickets are sold to these games. Do they push for a geographical view of the games? If so, we could very easily see Bama/Clemson in the Peach Bowl (played in Atlanta) and OSU/Washington in the Fiesta Bowl (played in Tempe).
OSU will travel well no matter what. Clemson and Bama in Atlanta will sell out. Washington fans are probably more likely to go to Tempe than Atlanta.
I also still think the committee's dream is for a Bama/OSU championship game.
I think we look at our own system to make sure we shore things up on that end before looking at other teams. It will be interesting what order the committee places teams. I don't think they will push for a OSU/Bama first round matchup with the hope that a national championship game with those teams would be off the charts.
Assuming they will give Bama a "home" game with the Peach bowl we would be going out to Arizona. Do they go geographical with Clemson (Peach) and Washington (Fiesta)? That will be the biggest question. Or if Clemson or Washington lose, does Michigan, PSU, or Wisconsin slide in against Bama?
I said this in another spot but for a player that is actually pretty good he has been on the wrong end of a lot of Ohio State highlights. Bosa and Landers destroyed him a couple times today.
I honestly don't know if I want Penn State to win or lose. I think we beat Wisconsin (again) but the team is going to be drained a bit and I think we are automatically in the playoff right now.
Bama, Ohio State, Clemson, Washington (assuming the latter two win out).
For a kid that is actually pretty good he seems to get destroyed by Ohio State. Every year he seems to make the highlight reel for the wrong reasons.
Holy. Fucking. Shit.
Deep breath. We can take the lead on this possession.
LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOO
Score. Stop. Score and we get the ball starting the second half. let's go.
Gotta get points here.
Not to bad. Could really use a turnover here.
Gotta flip the field here.
Ok so that should have been PI
Every route looked like it was less than 5 yards. Dumb play call
That ball was gunned.
Let's go offense.
One hit and Speight is out
They were close to getting that
Deep breath. Lets fucking go.
Tough game to call. Urban seems odd this week. Usually when he knows something he has that wry smile about him. I'm not sure I see that this week. That could be a sign of a problem or a sign that he is ready to come out swinging.
Will the jerseys be matching the cleats?!?
(whispers... all black unis)
How would your "advantage" breakdown look based on the below:
Outside of special teams, I'm not sure I see a "win" for Michigan in those position groups (and I'm not even sure they win special teams).
Kyle Snyder would be my #1 pick but I'm not sure there has ever been an active student be the picker. I'm sure the NCAA has some bullshit random rule against that.
Lebron would be a good choice. I'm going out on limb and saying it will be John Glenn--which would be awesome.
Seems like an odd place. Not really sure there is going to be enough room there. I feel like it would be better to have it on the Lincoln Tower Park fields just south of the Shoe. They would have the Block O of the score board in the background from that angle.
