I don't get what you are saying.
Duke has beaten:
If UM beats OSU and Minnesota, Duke still has better wins with Louisville... (UK/Temple/VCU = NC State/KSU/Pitt)
Pitt just annihilated GTown. They have looked inconsistent, but certainly not too shabby of a W for us.
None of those last three are ranked while NC state is the top 25 and K State is in the top 20.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Louisville is really the only game on that list that stands out. And FWIW they had trouble beating Louisville. It was very close most of the way. Likewise, with OSU. OSU led most of the game at Cameron. In comparison, both Kansas and Illinois handled OSU very easily. And we will play Minnesota at the Barn in a week. If we beat OSU at OSU and Minnesota at Minnesota, our resume will be as good as Duke's.

It will be close, but hard to not give Duke the edge with a neutral court W over Louisville- don't care how close it was.. that's impressive
Is Lewan holding a press conference? I've never seen a press conference where a player decides to stay.
Why? Duke beat OSU at home (barely) and Minnesota on a neutral court. If we beat them both on their home floors, how is that not more impressive? The reality is, we don't really know how good Louisville is. For all we know, they will wilt in BE play. At least with OSU and Minny we know both UM and Duke played the same teams.

He apparently likes the spot light
It's not worth arguing until it happens, because I think this argument includes a lot of assumptions on both sides. UM fans are able to envision the situation if they win @OSU and @MINN, whereas I think most MSU fans view it much less likely that you win both, and therefore I think our thoughts may reflect that.
laconophilia is everywhere...
Just looking at overall resume.. sure if UM wins @OSU and @Minny, those 2 wins would be more impressive than home v OSU and vs. Minny
So if/when Louisville starts to lose, we can adjust Duke's good wins accordingly.. but at this time on Jan 9- that is a top 5 win on a neutral floor and that trumps anything on UM's schedule to date (including if UM sweeps OSU/Minny next week)
Of course. If we lose the games, the argument is moot.
Didn't Matt Barkely do it last year? Trey Burke also?
So Denards not even going to try to play QB anymore, huh? Good decision.
seniorbowl: WR @DenardX from @umichfootball has accepted an invitation to the 2013 Senior Bowl! http://t.co/jmrtrGYN
Yep, Barkley did. I don't remember Trey's, i thought he just let reporters know, not an actual organized press conference, not sure
Why is Louisville so special? I haven't seen more than about 1 1/2 of their games, but they have only played one clearly top tier team (Duke) and they lost. For all we know, both OSU and Minny are better than Louisville. OSU nearly beat Duke on their home court. Louisville's best win is at home over Missouri. Sorry if I'm not overly impressed.
And UM's best win is at home over NC State..
What makes UM so special?
(not trying to argue UM isn't good- but you can't have that logic both ways if you're just looking at best wins)
Edit: And the Missouri W for Louisville was neutral floor per ESPN

Are you guys gonna make shirts if Duke loses on Saturday?
Yea, maybe he can get his girlfriend to write some sappy bullshit open letter to fans about how hard it is to leave and how he's thinking about his family.
No but I'd expect you'd make shirts if/when we lose with an exact score and date on it like you did in football.
When did they do that in football?
appalachain state t-shirt
Well that sounds interesting, care to elaborate?
the "Michigan Who?" t-shirts? Appalachian State made those...
Louisville is the best team in the country, imho.
