"Michigan sat home tonight on the couch and watched us," the senior said shortly after the game's conclusion. "We played our hearts out ??? you saw it. I don't see how you get punished for playing and someone else gets to sit on the couch and get what they want." - Kirk Cousins
Uhh blame your special teams Kirk, you might have had chance but they screwed it up for you.
I'm sure coming into the game MSU knew what was at stake, because either way it went Michigan was going to a BCS game.
"If this is the way the system is, I guess it's a broken system."
It's a broken system because you guys didn't get YOUR way?? Cry babies in East Lansing...

Kirk Cousins is not out of line by saying this. Would he have said it if MSU had won and went to the Rose Bowl? No. But that wouldn't change the fact that Michigan wouldn't deserve to make a BCS bowl over the loser of the MSU-Wisconsin game.
The system is broken, but that's a subject for another TD. What I'm getting from this is that the argument is whether Cousins was out of line for what he said, and that you believe Michigan is more deserving of a BCS bowl than MSU.
I'm sorry to say, but you are wrong on both accounts. MSU and Michigan are in the same division, and MSU won that division by playing better football than Michigan did throughout the course of the season.
What's more, MSU beat Michigan when they played head to head, and doubled them up winning 28-14.
Yes, MSU had 1 more loss this year, but 2 of those 3 losses were against top 15 teams either at a neutral site or on the road. Michigan lost the head to head matchup, and to a very mediocre Iowa team.
MSU shouldn't be punished for winning the division and having to play another game. The system is broken and MSU is more deserving than Michigan. Ergo, Cousins was not out of line.
