  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Wisky won the B1G at 7-5 just a few years ago - thankfully a conference championship isn't the only requirement of getting into the CFP. Undefeated conference champions are a practical guarantee, Once you have a loss, then you need to match up against other 1 loss teams and compare resume's - the committee is going to see a conference championship as a ++, so any non-conference champion is going to have to come with quality wins and losses. IF your only loss is to an undefeated #2 team in a close game on their field - that's damn compelling and should get you in the conversation - then it falls to who are the other conference champions and if they lost, to whom and why.  If you're a 2 loss conference champion, good luck - you're going to need it.

Brutus - I believe the loser of The Game would suffer equally along with the winning team then losing in the B1G Championship Game. But your point is well taken that you should be down a peg IF you aren't even in the conference championship game.

The committee likes conference champions - and if Washington takes care of that they will be in the discussion (run the table and they are in) - If they lose one it comes down to conference strength perception - the Big12 is down, which will help the Washington cause unless Baylor runs the table.

If the forecast for rain during the game holds, how might the weather influence this game?
