What does that have to do with football recruiting being more important than basketball to Michigan fans?
Is this one of these cute tricks where you try to deny the facts again?
Honestly...please just put me on ignore (like you threaten to do over and over and over again).

If MSU wins out, they'll get a 1 seed regardless of what happens in the BTT.
Football is king with Michigan.
Can you give me a link where I have Ever threatened to put you on ignore?
Nigel and his facts, .
This is the last I will discuss things with your today, have a good one Nigel.
Yeah. I've never heard that before.
It's kind of funny how you now admit what I was saying all along about football recruiting being more important than basketball.
That's sad considering what is going on with your basketball team.
I don't know what to say to that. Could of went undefeated, might not of. All I know is when they played Wisconsin they looked solid in the trenches, and were a really good smash mouth football team. They had a great run though with far inferior recruits.
At the end of the year though we'll never know how good Boise really is or TCU, they get held out of championship games for not playing in tough conferences.
A 2 losses Utah State missed the NCAA tourney a few years ago. Why? They played nobody. This is the same with TCU and Boise, they have 1 or 2 tough games a year, cruise through the rest of it. You cant do that in the SEC, Pac 10, B1G... I want a playoff as bad as you do, but an undefeated BCS school should get in before a non-AQ school.
In a 4 team playoff, TCU would have been in.
Sorry, sweetie. I never posted about Michigan's recruiting weekend.
I am talking about "big picture" stuff here (i.e., the future of the programs).
I agree with that, but it also puts a wrench in the it takes the best recruits to win it all. The best team in FB last year may have been a team w/o a top 5 recruiting class.
I guess if you want to hold onto that, you can.
I think a lot of people felt the same way.
After winning Rose bowl, TCU Horned Frogs deserve piece of national title
I guess the biggest question i have to go against what you are saying is
Why are the only teams with the lower rated recruits that make it through the year undefeated are the ones from non power conferences? It would appear that if TCU or Boise played in a better conference they would not be good enough to make it into the title game.
Of course they do, Nigel.
I don't know. I think Spartanrocky made a solid argument a while back on the RCMB that most of the BCS championship teams play cupcake non conference schedules. I'm to unable to recheck those schedules right now but he had a point. Maybe having a softer/easier schedule is as much a part of being a success as drawing in top recruits? If you look at Wisconsins non conf schedule it's a joke.
I think both MSU and UM have benefited from easier schedules.
TCU and Boise play even weaker schedules.
Bottom line you can't set up these schedules like the NFL where you get enough teams playing everyone in your conference and enough teams from other divisions where you can get an accurate standings system to determine a good playoff scenario.
The system is always going to be flawed, and there will always be debates after the fact.
Well TCU will be in the Big 12 this year, so perhaps they'll get their shot sometime.
They run the table through the Big12, then they deserve their chance.
Based on what? Joey Brackets? What if Duke wins out and wins the ACC tournament. Duke beat you earlier this year. Kentucky has one loss on the road due to a buzzer beater and should be a big favorite to win the SEC tourney. If Syracuse wins out and wins the BE tourney, they too will likely be seeded ahead of MSU. So that leaves one spot. If Kansas runs the table and wins the B12 tourney, while MSU loses its first game in the BTT, I am not so sure MSU gets the final one seed. And that all assumes MSU wins out in the first place.
Based on the winner of the b1g, best conference on the nation should be a 1 seed. It might not even be msu, but one team should get the 4th #1. Msu resume is impressive.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
So, if MSU and OSU slip up and UM wins the B10, you are saying we should get a one seed?
Not sure too many 7 loss teams get 1 seeds.
You need to explain this to your buddy Intensity.
I don't think he said Michigan would win the BigTen.
If you win out, but don't win the BTT, you will have 6. Not many 6 loss teams get one seeds either.
He said the winner of the B10, the best conference in the country, should get a one seed. It's in black and white a couple posts up.
