All Mich State had to do was win & theyd be in instead of Michigan. Michigab is still.a marquee name/program, the Sugar Bowl folks are trying to draw eyes to their game, they went w/tge resurgent Michigan "big name", to draw in folks, nothing wrong with it imo.
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.
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.
