So if we learned anything this weekend, it’s that Brock Osweiler is really tall, the Big House hosted its first ever night game, and the NCAA doesn’t let little things like logic get in its way.
Rained out last weekend in the third quarter, the statistics from Michigan’s win over Western Michigan last weekend don’t count in the NCAA’s mind. They just didn’t happen. For what it’s worth, the NCAA said that Michigan, Western Michigan, the Big Ten and the MAC may count the statistics, which they agreed they would. Keep in mind that the NCAA still counts the 34-10 win for Michigan and loss for WMU, but nobody actually did anything in the game to reach that outcome. It makes perfect sense for a sport that allows human perception and computers to determine who plays in its championship game.
