    Kirby basically said it was because we had 2 losses compared to Washington's 1 loss. So why schedule a tough out of conference schedule. Washington played the 2nd worse strength of schedule but still made the #4 spot. Lets be happy for our team and so proud of what they have accomplished this year which isn't over yet. The 2 hottest teams so far have been PSU and USC and it appears we will be playing in the Rose Bowl which is awesome. Congrats to Penn State!!!

    We ended up #5. They went with WSH over PSU because of WSH's more balanced weekly performances. So PSU's nine in a row factor could not overcome their 2-2 start. So we can live with it and a Rose Bowl berth vs probably USC.

    Or is it rigged and should we demand a recount?

    Let's dominate our bowl game and make the committee regret their decision.

    Not really surprised that PSU got hosed, the committee has demonstrated time and time again that they're incompetent. What I would really like to see is some kind of points system to rank teams, something like this:

    2 points for a win
    3 points for top 25 win
    4 points for top 10 win
    5 points for for 5 win
    5 points for conference championship

    4 teams with most points at end of season will make playoffs

    Not sure if something like this would actually work but I think they need some kind of system so the selection wouldn't be so subjective.

    Then add negative points for loses
    -2 pts for a loss
    -5 pts for a loss to a unranked team

    Not sure either if this would work but heck couldn't be worse then what we currently have

    I agree, no need to play conference championships if they mean nothing. Might as well go with 100 Independent's if conference play means nothing.

    All three schools in the B1G East had great resumes. I don't think Clemson could win 2 games if they had to play Penn State, Mich and OSU. I don't think Washington would win 1.

    The message is clear, conference titles mean nothing so they should eliminate them.

    Congrats to the coaching staff an the players @ Penn State. They had a great season. :10:

    Congratulations on the BIG10 Championship

    Never would have believed that any team would put up 38 against the Wisky defense. You guys are for real!!

    Good luck the rest of the way.
