If this was in reverse, and Michigan State or Ohio State got the call over Michigan, you would be throwing a fit.


Nah, it worked out the way it shouldve. Ohio States playing in the shit/toilet bowl, where they belong. State blew their chance, they dont deserve to go. Amazing how "great" OSU looks now that they cant cheat ?

State BEAT Michigan, on the field, where it's supposed to count. They get penalized for making the conference title game and losing by 3 to a team that would shitstomp the Wolverines? Bunch of crap.


 


I'm a Michigan fan and I can't argue with your logic. That said, Wisconsin almost always shaves against the Wolverines no matter how favored they are.

Even as a Michigan season ticket holder I agree with you. MSU was penalized for winning their division and playing in the Conf. title game. Michigan was rewarded for not being good enough to win their division.


Despite Michigan having a better record, and beating BOTH teams, that beat State.

You keep missing the point. The only reason Michigan had a better record is because Michigan State had to play an extra game. And the reason they played an extra game? They kicked Michigan's ass.


I know what you mean Chris, but its more the system, than anything else. The analysts said Houston losing, played a role somehow in the game Mich went to. State mightve beaten -ichigan, no arguements. But , they shit the bed 3 times. The rankings are fucked up. Im sure State
losing to 2 teams that Mich beat, somehow played a role in it too?

All I can say is: State, when it counted, lost, so theyre more to blame than anyone else. They win? They go to the Rose Bowl, and Michigan gets assed out. Just so happens, Michigan sat home, and benefitted from it. Im sure itll happen again to some other team? Look at Houston, they lose 1 game, and dropped over 12 spots,and out of a BCS game.

We wont know, since they didnt play each other.

My first thought here was "if stingy isn't defending his team to death when someone says another team is better, then even stingy probably realizes what the other guy is saying is true."

But State isnt better, thats why theyre not in a bcs game. Mich needed a few things to happen to go, they happened, theyre going. State blew their bcs game, Mich happened to reap the rewards. Win your conference title, this discussion never occurs. The bcs folks didnt think State was better, and voted appropriately. Blame the bcs/system.

Meeeeechegan didn't even win their DIVISION. They got rewarded for failure. Wisconsin did their dirty work for them.

State beat them and finished ahead of them in the standings. In what way are they not better?

And yes, this is another example of why the system sucks.

They did? State LOST their last game, and is 10-3, while Meecheegan is 10-2....Michigan went to the Sugar Bowl b/c of it......Michigan also beat ND and NEB, who State lost to(ND/Neb/Wisconsin...3 losses). Michigan finished AHEAD of MSU......w/one less loss

State beats Wisconsin? they go to the Rose bowl...guess who didnt win their conference title?

Along with Houston and another team.

Shit who cares about the Big 10 teams anyways. The only more boring football to watch is the Sunbelt.

Then that's some pretty twisted and diseased logic that a team can actually be rewarded for NOT making the conference title game. Which doesn't, by the way, affect the Big Ten standings. MSU still finished ahead of Michigan--if they hadn't, they wouldn't have been playing in the CCG.

Then the folks who voted Michigan into a bcs game, over MSU, should be the folks you need to direct any anger towards, THEY felt MSU wasnt worthy enough apparently, despite a 10-3 team being ranked higher than a 10-2 team. (which has been what Ive said for awhile now) blame the system. State blew it, Another team, benefitted from it, simple really. AGAIN, MSU wins, none of this matters. I dont "get" how its so hard to understancd any of that? Is it right? Probably not, but blame THE SYSTEM. Michigan got rewarded b/c another team didnt get the job done. Not the only time its happened, wont be the last Im sure. Wisconsin can just as easily put Mich back on their schedule, and vice versa. Doesnt help States case, that they lost to ND/NEB, and Michigan, beat both. STOP blaming MICH, for someone elses fuck up. If it happened to your favorite team, ill bet you wouldnt have a problem w/it? Mich needed help, and got it, how is that their fault? State/Houston didnt win, Mich goes b/c of it. Bottom. Line: win ALL your games, and you dont have to worry about anything else. They didnt do that, simple. The systems broken, it needs fixing, stuff like this wont happen then.

Hey man, my Rajin Cajuns went 9-3 and made their first Bowl game in several decades! Averaged over 29,000 a game at home, too. I remember when they were lucky to have 5,000.

The fact that they took the Michigan and VTech over Boise and K state, two school that were ranked higher than both teams shows you there's no point in being a better team because it doesn't matter. You take 2nd tier teams over ones ranked higher ones. Bill Snyder finished 2nd in the Big 12 and is ranked than Michigan and VTehch in every poll. How do you tell him that he should be happy a shittier Michigan goes to a BCS bowl?
