    Playoff committee is going to fuck us over if we win Big10. Clemson & Washington need to lose for us to get in is what it appears.
    #1 Bama can lose game and still be #1
    #2 OSU stays put because cant lose
    #3 Clemson needs to lose so Washington will be #3
    #4 Washington needs to lose so Michigan will be #4

    We need Clemson and Washington to lose so we to be in the playoffs and I still don't think the committee would put 3 Big10 teams in the Final 4.

    Whoever wins the Big Ten Title game will jump over Michigan, you can take that to the bank.

    First I don't believe UofM deserves to go.

    But the House of Mouse that owns ESPN and all the sponsors wants a #1 Alabama/Saban vs #4 UofM / Harbaugh. UofM has played in the two highest rated TV games in the last ten years. Like it or not Michigan gets the 4 spot if Clemson or UW loose.

    I think even more so if it's Washington to lose. They are already on the edge and the Colorado win would boost Michigans SOS. Not what I want to happen obviously but it's what seems to be the case

    Michigan likely to be jumped by the B1G champ as they sit idle and that team collects another top 10 win. Could also jump washington if they win a close game. I think the committee is praying we lose because its easier to leave Wisky out than the team who finished ahead of UM and OSU in the division then won the conference title game...i mean it truly invalidates the reason to even play in a conference and have a title game otherwise. Michigan has been bad down the stretch losing 2 of 3 and struggling in the other...the first team to beat them got hammered by PSU the previous week.

    They lost to Ohio State who we beat and Iowa who we beat handily. We'd have wins over OSU and Wisky.

    Let's just win this week and let the chips fall where they may

    We will never know what would have happened between Michigan and Penn State if Washington lost.

    Michigan fell below us, they would've been below us if Washington had lost as well.

    I disagree I think the committee would have ranked us 5th still and Michigan into 4th spot. It would have taken 2 teams to lose for us to get in I feel. Anyway we still won the Big10 Championship and heading to the Rose Bowl. If we can beat a USC team favored by 7pts at their home it would cap off a HUGE season for us. So proud of the team and what they have done this year.

    If they were going to be ahead off us then, they'd be ahead of us now. How would the criteria have changed??

    The committee would never have put us in the final 4 so they covered their butt by putting us 5th to say we were close. If Clemson or Washington lost (not both) the committee would have ranked us 5th still and put Michigan in. Lets beat USC and prove the committee got it wrong. That's all we can do know.
