I agree that for the most part yes, they did make the right picks based on the information that was available to them. My idea is that they didn't have enough information to base their decisions on. When it comes to comparing the best teams in the B1G you are doing so based on schedules that can be completely incomparable. If each team played more games in conference, then everyone would be playing more similar schedules that are made up of more of the same teams, and would then be easier to compare and provide more proof about who is better.

My issue isn't with the number of bowl games either. Of course if you add more bowl games they will be played by mediocre to bad teams. This year even the top bowl games were all terrible. Plus with my idea of playing a week 13 you give 5 win teams a chance to earn a 6th win against a team that in theory they should be very evenly matched with.

My title is meant to be creative more than anything. If you read the ideas I actually wrote about and would like to discuss that then feel free. If you read my title and jump straight to the comments there's no point in commenting.

Iowa wasn't a conference champion, but they were the most extreme example of a team earning a ranking that they were not good enough for, while good teams suffered for it. Yes Iowa did "earn" their ranking but it was because the system made it possible and not because they were actually good enough for it. My point is that Iowa was a pretender and there were also many other pretenders that took spots away from better teams. How is the system not wrong when the B1G's two best teams are Ohio State and Michigan, but Michigan State and Iowa played for the championship. Yes both teams earned the right to be there, but if everyones schedules in the B1G were matched more evenly then hopefully it would result in the true best teams rising to the top.

This is the image used in the discussion you linked. I remember seeing this a long time ago and have thought they were black ever since.

My thinking is that MSU has the better wins. Ohio State, Oregon, and Michigan compared to Bama's LSU and Wisconsin. According to the most recent AP poll that's the current #6 #15 and #19 teams compared to #23 and #25. Also Bama was handled by Ole Miss whereas MSU lost on a controversial play. That being said MSU should have never been in the position to lose. However MSU is currently playing great football while Bama's most recent game was a struggle with a bad Auburn team.

Breakout Player: Hubbard

Worried about: Minnesota / Michigan State

Biggest fear: Injuries to the O-line

More involved: Mclauren / Clark

Biggest disappointment: Bama. They will be good but I think they have 2-3 losses and aren't playoff contenders

Out of nowhere: Boise State gets into the playoff discussion

SEC East: Georgia

SEC West: Auburn

Pac 12: Oregon ( with 2 losses)

Big 12: TCU


ACC: Clemson 

Huge year: Corey Clement continues the trend of dominant Wisconsin RB's

Comment 07 Jul 2015

This concept is fine if you want to look like a high school team.

Honestly I've hated pretty much every alternate uniform up until the playoff jerseys. Those were so good that I think they should become our permanent jerseys. I'm so sick of those chrome alternate jerseys too. Just awful.

1. Ohio State

2. TCU

3. Auburn

4. Michigan State

Ohio State beats TCU for the championship

Big Ten Championship: Ohio State 48 Wisconsin 16


My thinking here is that OSU MSU could be a #1 vs #2 undefeated matchup with Michigan State losing a close one. I think they end up staying in the top four though because the Pac12 is going to be good but very even, and that will result in them beating each other too much and leaving them out of the top four. I also think the ACC has no chance. My other prediction is that Boise State could sneak into the top four, but I don't have quite as much confidence in that one.

This is pretty simple. After three hours you lose your buzz. A ton of students leave early because they just want to get back to partying. You could say that selling beer at the game would help but it really wouldn't help much. Half of the students aren't even 21 yet and the college students that are 21 won't be too excited about paying the ridiculous prices that it would be. The only thing that would fix this is if the university sort of looked the other way when it comes to students sneaking alcohol inside, but honestly that probably wouldn't be a good thing either.

Comment 04 Jan 2015

Why is everyone attacking this guy? Apparently none of you get what he was really trying to say. Obviously the team cared about winning this game, but he's saying that they cared about winning the college football playoff semifinal game and the fact that it was the Sugar Bowl was not that significant. In the past winning the Sugar Bowl really meant something, but with the playoff the Sugar Bowl and it's traditions seem like a bit of a sideshow. But I guess its more fun to just be a dick than to actually have an intelligent discussion.

Actually NCAA 06 is for the 2005-2006 season. Troy won the Heisman in the 2006-2007 season. Plus you cant be on the cover until after you graduate so he would have been on the NCAA 08 cover, but they went with the Boise player that year.

I had a dream that I was sitting on a bench somewhere in Columbus and I saw Lane Kiffin walk into a building. Pretty soon Saban walked out of the building and was going to his car. As he passed me he stopped and gave me some fruity little inspirational speech and then smiled like he just gave me the greatest gift in the world. I just sat there confused as shit wondering what just happened. Then a few minutes later Kiffin walks by and ignores me sitting there. I said something to him as he walked by about what Saban told me and he chuckled and said, "yeah, that guy can be a real douche sometimes."

I had a different dream a few nights later that I was a walk on at OSU. During the Sugar Bowl every single player for both teams got hurt except for me and all I had to do was run past everyone laying on the ground injured and scored non-stop. Urban finally said that it was pretty stupid and we decided to end the game as a tie. Another note, the game was being played in my house. We all agreed that we would rather play at the Outback Bowl because at least they got to play at Outback Steakhouse.

If I had to guess I'd say she either works for a flooring company specializing in the carpet section, grooms cats, or works with beavers at the zoo.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

I absolutely hate the idea of conference champions getting an automatic bid for the playoffs. First of all it completely ruins the idea of playing strong non-conference games. If all you have to worry about is winning your conference why would you feel the need to schedule good out of conference games. They wouldn't matter anymore.

Secondly if you use this year as an example we clinched the B1G east division with a win over Indiana. That means that whether or not we beat Michigan didn't really matter in terms of winning the B1G championship because we were already guaranteed to play for a shot at the title. If we rested starters and lost to Michigan it wouldn't matter because we only have to win the conference to play for the national championship. I don't want to live in that world. 

Finally do you really think that Missouri, Georgia Tech, Arizona, and Wisconsin deserved a shot at the national title? Missouri was probably only the 6th best team in their entire conference. How about in 2012 when Wisconsin finished third in our division and won the B1G because OSU and PSU were ineligible? 

The four best teams deserve to go

Comment 09 Nov 2014

I don't think Mississippi State is that good. I think they will lose to Ole Miss and Alabama.

I think we would have an argument over a one loss Florida State if they were to lose but I think that is unlikely. Duke is the only chance of them losing in my opinion.

Oregon has to play ASU in the Pac 12 championship game, so one of those teams are guaranteed to lose. Plus ASU still has to play Arizona. If they lose that game and Oregon loses the Pac 12 championship game then the Pac 12 would be left out.

I expect Alabama to beat Miss State but they do have to play Auburn plus the SEC champ game if they win the division. There could be a scenario where every SEC team has two losses at the end of the year.

As much as I dislike TCU for giving up 61 points in a loss and still being ranked ahead of us, I don't see them losing another game. Baylor has a tough game against Kansas State, but if TCU and Baylor win out I'm not sure if the committee will put two Big 12 teams in the playoff.
