It's interesting that the NCAA suggests that the portal exists for reasons of transparency. The reality, however, is that it is not transparent at all once the player decides to change to the next school. They sit and wait for an answer about whether they get to play immediately or have to sit out a year and have no real insight into the process at all. So if they really want transparency, put all of that out there too.

I really don't want to get all tinfoil hat but you add that terrible offensive pass interference call against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and how that changed the game as well and one just has to think something is up here!

I don't know enough to say much about the targeting call. But I can say without a doubt that the fumble scoop and score was a total BS call because if it had been the other way around I believe in all my heart that they would have never overturned it in the review booth.

But, at the risk of sounding too much like someone from mgoblog I will just say that I am proud of the team for showing the world what a great team they are and they can hold their heads high for that performance regardless of the outcome.

This is an interesting conundrum. On one hand, you want to be in the playoffs so that you can recruit the best talent. On the other hand, in order to recruit the best talent, you need time during the weeks of playoff preparation. Seems like the teams that don't make the playoffs have an advantage here, but, again, if you make the playoffs then more players want to play for your team. 

THIS is why coaches get paid the big bucks (no pun intended)

So, somebody took a lot of time out of their evening to downvote every single comment 1 time at the beginning of this comment thread. Whoever you are **cough, michigan fan **cough***  I hope it was worth it and I'm sorry you have nothing more positive in your life than to waste it doing that. I also see that you gave up halfway through, much like TTUN does every time we play them! Go ahead and downvote this one as well if you're still reading. Oh, no you left. Couldn't keep reading all the joy, eh?

So, I did some reading of their boards over the past few days and I have to say that these people are truly delusional on so many levels I actually feel bad for them. It isn't even just about football, really. They have this notion that their program doesn't cheat or "pay players" to recruit them and the only way for them to ever beat us would be to start doing dishonest things like that. Then there's the comments about how shitty Ohio is and especially Columbus... Um, have they read the news where Columbus was voted the #1 city in the WORLD? How anyone could compare Detroit to Columbus and come out thinking they are better off there is just insane. I will concede that parts of Michigan are beautiful and their lakes are crystal clear, I love paddling up in Traverse City, for example, but that is closer to Michigan State so they really can't even claim that!

In the end, it's all just a bunch of desperation talk to make themselves feel better and I get it. I am old enough to remember the Cooper years and I did grow up in Massillon which is a town that has basically nothing good about it BUT football, so yeah, I understand. You have to make your own pride when you have nothing else. But at some point you have to realize the only way out of your own delusion is to try and see reality for once and admit you have been fooling yourself.
