How did Michigan State finish 4 spots ahead of Pitt when we almost beat them with our third string quarterback and without our offensive coordinator. Our first team q.b. is projected to be the first q.b. picked in the NFL draft and he didn’t play. If we go full strength against full strength, we beat MSU by 14 easily. These rankings are ridiculous.

So you’re saying that even though Michigan State beat Pitt & finished with a better record, Pitt should have been ranked ahead of Michigan State? This is definitely an interesting perspective however I’m guessing that you are the only person on the planet who believes this.
