Game on an aircraft carrier?

May have lost, but holy f***in cow was that sweet to watch.

Michigan State is going to have a pretty decent team this year, considering how young they are.

Ohio State and Michigan on ESPN right now and locked in a close game in the 2nd half.

This would be a huge win for the Wolverines if they can pull it off.

Yep....the 2013 football class is off to a great start for Michigan.

It's about time for Michigan to step up and reclaim their spot next to Ohio State as the two teams who battle it out for Big Ten supremacy year in and year out like it was back in the day (in football).

So this is the time of year that has become like Groundhog Day. I'm watching a little of the Syracuse-UConn game and Vitale is once again talking about how many teams the Big East should get into the tournament.

Every year we have to put up with this kind of talk and every year it's invalidated by what happens in the NCAA tournament when teams like George Mason make deep runs with greater frequency. This whole thing about a conference deserving 8 teams as opposed to 7 has been exposed as myth over and over.

Lets just call it what it is. It's the BCS in a different form where the old money power conferences look out for themselves. You could also make the case that it's about the brand/appeal of a team more than it's about the conference affiliation but either way, it's the same.

Except he's talking about which teams should MAKE the tournament. Sure George Mason or Austin Peay or Pepperdine or whoever-the-hell can go far in the tournament. But who's going to have a better overall performance, the 8th team from a power conference or the 2nd team from a **** conference?

That's what Im talking about. It's really hard to justify an 8th seed from a "power" conference getting in over a #2 seed in a "bad" conference. I don't even think that the conference means as much anymore. You could just as easily substitute the word "famous" for the word "power" and it would be more accurate in terms of how it describes what is going on here.

Lets face it. TV money is a big driving force in all sports. They want teams with brand appeal and/or teams that they can call cinderella teams. What the networks dont want is an acknowledgment of the reality that there are a lot of #2 teams in "bad" conferences that are better than #8 teams from "power conferences. In that scenario less famous teams are displacing teams with greater brand appeal while diluting this idea that lesser known teams that are making runs are cinderella teams. It's lose-lose for the networks.

Give me a couple days, I'll compile a list of #2's in crap conference's records versus power conferences. It's not a conspiracy.

See my revised post. Power conference is a misnomer. Yeah theyre better but it's not what its made out to be and it's definitely no longer the case that an 8th seed should get in based on playing in a more famous conference.
