"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.

Kirk added...

"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.

He's right though. Michigan doesn't belong in a bowl game. Neither does Virginia Tech. And how is VT still ranked higher than Clemson when Clemson beat them TWICE?!

Because they were pointless like your first post.

Michigan doesn't belong in a bowl game really? Not even the Bose Speakers Bowl? Come on man. Of all the meaningless bowl games out there I'm sure a 10 win team belongs in one of them.

December 6, 2011  02:04 AM ET

Couldn't agree more with Cousins

I think he meant BCS bowl. If he did, he's right.

If not, he's a moron

Yeah I read it again and I hope that's what he meant. Thats my team but the Sugar Bowl was gift wrapped.

They belong there more than Va Tech does though.

Couldn't agree more. Clemson=ACC champs and has two wins over V Tech, yet somehow Tech still gets ranked ahead of Clemson...? I understand Clemson lost to NC State, which is an ugly loss but whenever a team has TWO head to head wins over another and the records are a game apart the team with the head to head victories needs to be ranked higher.

Why is Cousins out of line...at all? I mean its a pretty legit complaint, whether you agree on whether MSU or Michigan should have gotten the bowl game is different.

They gonna fix the 5 minute thing??

December 7, 2011  09:10 PM ET

I'm not sure that I'm going to argue this, but figured I'd pick it up while it was open. I'll drop it in a couple minutes if I decide to not argue it.

December 7, 2011  09:13 PM ET

Alright, I'll argue this. Give me a few minutes to get my argument up.

The only people who think that Michigan deserves a BCS game over Michigan State (or the other actual deserving teams) are Michigan fans. The only reason both those teams are in that game is due to $$ they can bring in due to their larger fanbase.

Sugar Bowl rep on the radio yesterday, made no bones about VT and Michigan being picked because of their fans reputation for travelling well
