None of this would be happening if the Playoff Committee didn't have to come out with rankings every week. They put themselves in a bad spot moving TCU to 3rd. However, had there been only one selection show, that being the final one there wouldn't be a single person with much of a gripe. Now, since we watched the poll rankings rise and fall week after week it looks like TCU fell 3 spots when in fact the ranking are "reset" every week. Also, the week before there were only 11 voters, while there were 12 voters for the final selection. This might have made a bigger impact that many of us don't realize.

Yep, you can do a lot of things wrong and everything will work out just fine but infidelity and/or abuse should never be tolerated.

He watches the defense, then calls the play. If they set up early enough he even does the "audible" but he needs to see the entire defense and field to do this.

B1G Coach of the Year Award is the same as You Tried But You're Still A Loser Award. I hope we never win this trophy.

We will be ranked 5th on Tuesday, first team out and unless someone from the top four loses we will remain the first team out.

I think they new early that Urban Meyer wanted the job but had he turned it down I think tOSU would have rode out the storm with Coach Tressel. We were going to be just fine.

One of my favorites from off the top of my head. "Oh look Daddy, Morgan Freeman is in this movie. You know the guy from Through the Wormhole." My son is seven. I just laughed thinking my generation knows Morgan Freeman as a great actor in a bunch of movies, his generation will know him from Through the Wormhole.

My 10 year old watches way too much survivor man and life hacks but I'll be damned if he can't make a homemade battery, a cup from a plastic bottle and a siphon from scratch.

My 11 year old says there's three things he really, really hates. He says "I hate Mondays, the French and most especially anything to do with Michigan". I know where he gets the hate for Mondays and Michigan from but I have yet to figure out the French.

Kids can be pretty awesome if you let them.

A lot of people point to the SEC's bowl dominance in recent years so I decided to do some digging and see if this really holds any water.

In the past 5 years the SEC was the Favorite to win in 22 games. Of those games they won 15 and lost 7. They were the Underdog in 11 games. They won 4 and lost 7. However, in matches I considered Even (Including Nat. Champ Game which I admit is debatable) they won 9 and lost 2. That's where it seems most of the difference is. Based on Favorite and Underdog they are pretty average but when it comes to games considered to be Even match ups this is actually when they are at their best.

At the conclusion of my analysis they are definitely over-rated (but in no way bad) always making sure they are the favorites in their bowl games. This is where the difference is between the SEC and the B1G. The SEC will go to a lower tier bowl with their team being better in order to win. Whereas the B1G will go to a better bowl to chase the money but not the win. The bottom line is: the SEC wants wins, the B1G wants money.

Note: There is a discrepancy in the Even category due to the all-SEC National Championship game. It was counted as 1 game of an even match up but counted as both a win and a loss.

Might have to get three of these and back date them. Damn, I wish I knew about these years ago.

3rd or 4th is what I expect, not that I agree with it. 1. Bama 2. Oregon 3. FSU 4. Miss. St. Or they put Miss. St. 3rd so that they are in opposite brackets. Something to watch for if the SEC gets 2 teams in.

3 turnovers that led to 21 points and you still come away with the win. It really shows how good we are. Other teams need to be mistake free to beat us but we have the talent to overcome mistakes. A lot of people don't look at it that that way.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

This game was almost as exactly as I expected. Minnesota would beat any team from the south with the weather conditions that we played in today. 8 team playoff while playing at higher ranked teams house would bode well for the B1G. Close win with weather a factor. I didn't want it to be but was expected.

I hope none of these animals are able to reproduce. I'm proud to have Marshall on the team, he'll do better next time. He just needs to train with frozen footballs. Frozen footballs for everyone at practice this week!

What would it take money wise to prevent this from happening?
