Agree with everyone saying our resume will end up best in the country with a win Saturday, which is why I said we should make the CFP. The original post was poorly titled, as the "one game we couldn't afford to lose to control destiny to Indy/CFP" is really the lone similarity. 

I give Sparty a puncher's chance against PSU, but like our chances regardless of what happens in that game.

I agree with this, even though it kills me to say it. I don't believe MSU should be penalized for losing in a conference championship that OSU did not qualify for. They beat us straight up, in our house. Not to mention have 2 more top 25 wins than we do (Oregon and OSU).

These are rankings, not standings. Yes they would have two losses, but ranking OSU ahead of them would suggest MSU would have been better off not playing for a conference championship, which is every team's goal at the beginning of the season.

To your other point, if we had to have a loss, I'd rather it be to a very good Sparty than to VaTech or anyone else on the schedule.

Except if we had lost to VaTech or anyone else (besides Michigan) instead of a very good Sparty, we would be going to Indy this weekend for the B1G Championship game, and a much clearer path to the CFB Playoff.

I think MSU will show on Saturday that Iowa would have finished no better than 4th in the B1G East this year. Their best win is against Northwestern, who got absolutely dump-trucked my TTUN.

Another wrench to throw in your scenario. Iowa slips past Michigan St in a close game.

Clemson, Iowa, Oklahoma would be in. Gotta believe that 4th spot comes down to MSU and OSU...ugh.

Good point. 

If Stanford beats USC in the Pac-12 Champ game, I think they are a lock for the Rose Bowl. If USC wins, I don't think the Rose Bowl would take a 4 loss USC team over ND.

Agree it is a lose/lose situation. Much more can be gained by winning in Pasadena. Even a blowout win vs. Houston in Tempe would be a somewhat deflating/anti-climactic way to end this season. 

Comment 30 Nov 2015

I mostly agree, but just to play devil's advocate:

Would they take OSU over MSU if MSU loses to Iowa in a close game, even though MSU beat OSU? That would set a precedent that teams are punished for making it to their conference championship games (and losing) in favor of a team who did not.
