Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Because the BCS is a joke and is about ticket sales and TV ratings.. not picking the best teams..
IE why #8 and #11 last year were passed over for #13 and #17
Yep- hold your heads high-- you got a BCS bid because you can sell tickets!!
No one's crying.. I gamble and am pumped I can get MSU at those odds..
Well you guys discredited JLS and BW before some Michigan fans dscredited RR anyway. It's not like you just started doing it.
OK- so glad I can discredit them then..
Not sure what else there is to say..
Beat us.. then talk.
We got to the BCS because we were ranked high enough. Whine some more about the polls, Kirk.
It's a conspiracy. Jim Delaney favors Michigan and Ohio over MSU.

Well no that's not the case.
Again- if it were just about rankings, why wouldn't the highest ranked eligible teams go?
Clearly there are other factors.
Do you look at the season as a whole, or one game? Were Nebraska and ND better than MSU? I would say on those days, yes, but for the season as a whole, no.
Again, no one is whining.. but to think that UM got picked because it's all about being ranked high- that's clearly not the case and the proof is there.. two teams ranked higher than UM were picked.
OK sure- look at the whole season..
MSU went 11-1 and beat Wisconsin..
Not sure there's any discrepancy that MSU was better than Wisconsin in 2010..
Your post sounds like the classic sparty whining episode.
I realize you only read what you want to hear, but the AP was apart of it at one time.
And there it is! Sparties new world order which began 4 years ago.
We DID beat you. 6 straight times before your current stretch. SIX! Historically, we usually beat you at about a 60% clip . and what do you know, the last 10 we're 6-4.
Short term memory, eh Cope.

So ND and Nebraska were better than you last year?
Again no one is whining..
But why are UM fans so against coming out and saying- yea, we were picked because we sell tickets and get TV ratings instead of trying to stick to the BS that oo well we deserved to go we were ranked high..
Enough already.. Two higher ranked teams were passed over by the committee and UM was taken because they can sell tickets.
End of story.. and if you need a refresher.. feel free to read this piece..
There's a reason why the Sugar Bowl was laughed at by the entire media and nation by being a complete joke
Sorry buddy.. UM fans say they can discredit the Rich Rod years.. then there's no reason why MSU fans can't discredit all years prior to Dantonio..
In that one game situation yes.. but over the course of the year.. no.
But MSU went 11-1 and beat Wisconsin.. so beat Wisconsin head to head and had the same record as they did.. well, I think it's pretty clear which team was then better
Um...the public doesn't set these odds. That is my point. This is from independent people with a lot of money at stake, not fans. Now, those fans may eventually move the line a little bit, but this is the "smart money."

Wtf are talking about. You jump around on everything. Are you going to try and use the, MSU beat Wisconsin at home, Wisconsin beat Ohio State at home, so MSU is better than tOSU.
Nobody had a problem with our selection, but you guys had a problem with our selection to the BCS. The problem was VT because they had a weaker schedule.
You make more justifications than the average Sparty. This is entertaining.
You're like a walking billboard of every Spartan memes. You could not be any more predictable.
This is an article that shows te viewpoint that VT was the only bad selection.
