It has been a good game.   If somebody watched this one in a vaccuum, they would think the B1G was pretty good.    My real hope here is that whoever wins this game, makes the playoff (disproving my pre-season prediction) and does well.    Not sure that is a reality but it would be nice to see the B1G be relevant again. That said, your comment about special teams being an OSU advantage has not proven to be the case..  Two fumbles by the OSU special teams.....     Good thing...
Nope.   Wasnt defeated.   But we are done with that discussion.
I don't know as I see Alabama and MSU as being flipped but on the other hand,  I doubt I would holler about it either....   The biggest thing I see is that based on this set of rankings, TCU has a clear advantage over MSU.   
I don't think the bye week is the problem.  I think this goes back to the perception that the the B1G is weak.    I am not saying it is deserved.   I think MSU has a really good team (and yes, a REAL top 10 defense) that deserves to be in the discussion but perception is hurting them.
That is nearly verbatim what the chairman of the committee said last week on TV.    He also basically said the B1G was perceived as weak when he said OSU was ranked where they were because of who they had played.   So if the choice is TCU and MSU, I would not want to bet either direction at this point.  Perhaps the committee will change their opinion of the B1G as the season progresses and the top teams in the conference match up.   But then again, if TCU beats KSU, they...
I gave you stats which clearly showed Auburn's defense had played against far stronger offenses than PSU had faced, which to anyone not trying to make an excuse for a poor showing by their team, clearly shows that PSU's defense is not even close to the caliber of Auburns.  Yet here we are multiple posts later and you still haven't even acknowledged them.   Even after I repeatedly posted them.   Now, I really am done with debating the strength of PSU's defense.   Anybody...
 Yeah, right.   Needing double OT to beat a team with a 4-4 record, when you are hoping to make the top 4 by season's end.  Yeah.  No reason to pump that team's defense up at all..   Uh huh.   Sure.    Totally believeable...       Keep hawking that all you want, I'm not buying it.  Especially after having seen PSU play several times this year.    BTW, I notice in the Sagarin rankings, PSU's SOS is 57.   Auburn's is 2.   Yet PSU has the better defense?  Sure.  Tell me again...
 Even that argument doesn't hold water.   They are 2-2 in playoff meetings..   
I haven't read the whole thread either and frankly don't think you can really label one QB as the greatest ever.   The game and the rules have changed so much over the years, it is impossible to compare QB's from different eras.    An argument could be made for either Manning or Brady as being the best of their generation and both sides can present enough evidence to support their cause but really, does it matter? The bottom line is we have been fortunate to watch these...
You basically eliminated them when you discounted the performance against them and blew it off as "a bad game" and discount that game's performance as an outlier.  Did it ever occur to you that PSU had a bad game BECAUSE of Northwestern, rather than  in spite of them?   I disagree that the stats don't help teams that schedule cupcake teams.   I showed you that the teams PSU lost to had an average offensive ranking of 52.5 and the teams they beat were much worse than...
