Last year was totally different.
1. MSU began the year as one of the top handful of teams in the country.
2. MSU beat OSU late in the season.
3. MSU had one tight loss to Nebraska last year.
4. MSU had victories over Michigan, OSU, Oregon, and Iowa.
We thought OSU was better and I think they were but there was absolutely no argument that OSU should get in over MSU. No one on this board made that argument seriously (ok somebody probably did).
Here, PSU would be a 2-loss team, that beat OSU early in the season, that got embarrassed by Michigan, that lost to Pitt, and who had only one real victory of significance--over OSU.
If PSU or Wisconsin gets in over a one loss OSU, then we should just move to an eight team playoff with Power 5 champs and three wildcards.
