I want to be inside this thread. It feels right.
Seems like there are so many ways this could happen it's practically a sure thing.
It's all over now baby blue!
Suicide watch to Rose Bowl in the matter of a couple hours......Only at the RCMB!!! LOVE IT! #PFTMFRB, B!
What Would Izzo Do?
It'd be a lot simpler if Michigan lost to Iowa or Minnesota in addition to the needed losses to NW and OSU, but I think you're right!
According to the B1G's site ...
If three or more teams are tied, steps 1 through 7 will be followed until a determination is made. If only two teams remain tied after any step, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative.
The records of the three tied teams will be compared against each other
The records of the three tied teams will be compared within their division
The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5, and 6)
The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents;
The highest ranked team in the first Bowl Championship Series Poll following the completion of Big Ten regular season conference play shall be the representative in the Big Ten Championship Game, unless the two highest ranked tied teams are ranked within one spot of each other in the BCS poll. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the Big Ten Championship
The team with the best overall winning percentage [excluding exempted games] shall be the representative
The representative will be chosen by random draw.
Hay OP, is this shit still possible?
Held it down for Monty
Held it down For Iz
Signing in for curiousity.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
I believe that the tie breaker at that point is overall record, in which us in UNL would have the same overall record, I don't know what the next tie break scenario is. The best would be if UM has 4 losses. And we are tied with NW and Neb. We would have head to head tie break over both of them. Wishful thinking
How funny would it be if we got screwed out of a Rose Bowl 2 years ago, then kind of screwed last year due to new rules plus screwed ourselves at the end, but then all this shit happens this year and we end up going?
Or more likely everything will happen except the final thing that needs to happen. Or we will make it to the Big Ten title game and lose again.
If there is a multi-way tie you go until you're down to two teams (or one). Then you go back to head to head.
Imagine if we had a better OC than Roushar. We would be undefeated in conference play and wouldn't have to worry about all these scenarios

You left out where I'd win the lottery and scarlet Johnsson begs me to fuck her.
Agenda for next week.
MInny doesn't HAVE to beat UM, but if they pull it off the odds of this happening increase x1234222343
Same thing with Indiana beating Iowa, I have more faith in IU @bloomington than Purdoo @ Kinnick though.
NW is off
BEAT NEBRASKA, obviously.
IU doesn't HAVE to beat Iowa either.
There's still options, but go Hoosiers and Gophers!
UM could lose to anyone in the conference if Denard is out for any sort of time.
Yeah, that's what I meant when I said same thing with IU and Iowa. I think IU has a better chance of beating Iowa at home than Purdue does at Kinnick though. Purdue looks like the worst team in the conference.
@ this thread
I dont see Indiana winning anything. This is going to be a pathetic year and Iowa will be in Pasadena
IU played MSU and OSU very close and stomped ILLY. Iowa looks really bad when they're not in SS.
Iowa's going to end up being 3-5 in the conference.
I don't think Indiana is really that bad at all to be honest with you. Played us, NU and OSU very tough, won a couple games in non-con big. Lost a couple of brutal heart-breakers including 31-30 @ Navy last week.
They play hard every week and got a convincing road win yesterday. I know Illinois is awful, but IU has a shot to get bowl-eligible if they beat Iowa. They'd be at 4-5 with some winnable games left. That Houston RB they have is a stud.
Indiana wins next week 28-21.
Cue the carnival music. (I'm officially in this thread)
"Spartan women were known for their natural beauty... They were notorious for their razor-sharp wit and outspoken natures."
It's actually less than that.
Iowa only needs to lose 3 more games.
Neb has to lose to us and one other team (we would own breaker)
UM needs to lose 3 more
NW has to lose to us and one other game
Yeah, I made the thread before Iowa lost to PSU.
You're right on Neb.
Made the thread before UM lost to Neb
Is overall record the tie breaker before head to head?
