I still say no. OSU and PSU are the clear leaders. I think UM goes 0-3 against MSU, PSU, and OSU.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Winner of PSU/OSU takes it. We will hang with both teams and maybe even beat OSU but I think PSU probably beats us by 7-10.

I can see 9-1 plus the results of tOSU & PSU.....so 9-3 to 11-1 a damned Dantonio miracle.

You say that now... and then we win out and we want anyone but bama.

With that being said - every fucking year this shit gets talked about and talked about, chaos usually does ensue and it works itself out pretty nicely. So many games to be played. Who fucking knows it’s college kids out there

Nah, I think it's because I understand where we are. We would have no shot against Bama. Hell I don't even want us to make the playoff. I just want the hardware. Fucking crazy unbelievable coaching job this year. I don't even understand.

Next year? I want it all.

For Michigan State to make it to the Big Ten Championship Game, here's what needs to happen:

1. Beat Ohio State
2. Beat Maryland OR Rutgers

From MGoBlow and Reddit....

Rutgers can still win the east
Over on r/CFB someone determined that it is still technically possible for Rutgers to win the. Given the utter remoteness of this I thought I would share it to provide for your Sunday evening entertainment.

Rutgers > PSU
Rutgers > Indiana
Rutgers > MSU
Maryland> MSU
MSU > OSU
Wisconsin > Michigan
Maryland > Michigan
Michigan > OSU
Illinis > OSU

Yeah that's insane. Beat OSU and it essentially clinches the division. 9-3 with an OSU win gets MSU into the B1G title game. Insane.

Their best game so far this year is OSU vs Iowa.

Part of me wants to see MSU go to the big ten championship game at 8-3. It'll piss off scummers so bad that a 3 loss east division team went to the championship game and they STILL weren't good enough to make it.

Stolen from MGoBlow.

First, since TaiStreetsMyHero posted two weeks ago, everything has gone right for Michigan.

We needed (and got) all of the following events*:

MSU lost to NW (41%)

MSU beat PSU (16%)

PSU lost to OSU(44%)

OSU lost to Iowa(20%)

UM beat Rutgers (95%) and Minnesota (87%)

In addition to all of those games going our way, they have also greatly increased the probability that PSU loses to Rutgers, Nebraska, or Maryland (used to be 1, 3, 4% is now 13, 14, and 18%)

Similarly, Rutgers/Maryland's win probabilities have increased against MSU.

Finally, Michigan's probability of beating Wisconsin and Ohio State have increased as well due to our rise in S&P.

*-All the numbers here are from Bill Connelly's predictions

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now for the big reveal. I programmed in tiebreakers for UM/MSU/OSU/PSU. I did not add in tiebreaker scenarios for Rutgers (who is still not mathematically eliminated). For fun, I wrote up my code just before leaving work last night and ran simulations as I left so I could run a ridiculous number. So, after 50,000,000 simulations, these are the results:

B1G East champ:

Div Champs (out of 50,000,000) %
OSU 38,662,569 77.33
MSU 10,624908 21.25
UM 468,785 0.94
PSU 236,486 0.47
You may note that only 49,992,748 division champs have been accounted for in this simulation, which basically means that there is a 0.01% chance that Rutgers is involved in a tiebreaker, which of course implies there is an even smaller chance that Rutgers wins the B1G East.

Look, I don’t know who did these numbers but it’s pretty damn impressive. No mater how pathetic it is.

Seriously, MSU beating PSU improves Rutgers' chance of beating PSU?

It's a good thing I'm not a gambler. I stand no chance of ever making money.
