I think they'll go to 3. Oklahoma will jump to 2.
It really comes down to either Clemson or Alabama losing. Oklahoma/Oklahoma St and Iowa/MSU are play in games. Probably our best shot is the most controversial...UNC win the ACC but would they jump us. Right now they're 14 and will probably jump up to 9 or 10. Does the committee jump them up to 4?
Six. 1. Clemson 2. Alabama 3. Oklahoma 4. Iowa 5. MSU 6. Ohio State....need Florida or possibly UNC to upset
Down goes ND. Now if only Florida can beat Alabama!!!
Called it!!! Sort of !!
Is a ND close win over Stanford better than a blowout over Michigan? Plus there are 30 seconds left!
One thing is for sure, MSU is a great team when healthy and focused. If the Big 12, SEC and ACC have all 1 loss or less teams win out we can't complain...but we should be the at large to jump in if they're not.
Beating Michigan helped, but if we don't make the final 4 (which it looks like) it will be a major what if season. This is certainly the best team of the Meyer era.
Our team has nobody to blame but themselves. We had an MSU team without their star QB, at home, in weather that was advantageous to our style and we decided to play cute instead of hammering them. We're a top 4 team for sure but we won't get the chance this year.
If Alabama, ND loses we might have a shot at the playoff
It's a shame it took a loss to get this team to execute with the intensity we're seeing today.
After they were booing Raekwon for being hurt I am having trouble finding sympathy...that said I'll be the better person and cheer when he gets up.
Was he down?
Unfortunately the turnover will probably get called back
Keep running and keep pounding them. They can barely stand on defense
Can we even attempt to blitz? We can't play with their receivers man for man...blitz and make him uncomfortable.
Why didn't they even attempt to review that catch?
Run the ball and run it more...they are going to be soo gassed in the 4th.
The defense needs to stop them on this drive...no giving up a answer TS like last week.
Also remember last season we were tied at half!!!
Hopefully something gets setup downfield in the second half. Michigan will be adjusting to attack the run more and we will have to get something downfield on them to make them respect it.
The third downs have been awful...we have to stop giving up 3rd and long. I don't understand how we've been so bad at that.
3rd down and long has killed us all season...keep feeding Elliott on the edge with pulling linemen.
HAVE to get away from the end zone. Michigan lives and dies by field position...if they get 3 and out we'll give them a short field and they start taking more chances.
