Easy - congrats on the title run. I may not have agreed with the pollsters, but you were able to beat a great team (Michigan) who was loaded with talent and speed. In doing so, you now join the nation's elite group of programs. Smooth - congrats on the great season. You may have come up short in the end, but you ran the table up to that point and out-recruited many schools (including MSU) as a 4-star program. You clearly earned back your 5th star. Ego - congrats on the Rose Bowl win. After a very close battle against MSU in year one, your guys came out on top in the rematch in year two. Although both of our defenses played questionably, your offensive performance was outstanding and your play-calling at the end of the game was courageous and, more importantly, good enough to pull out the win. Goose - that big win in your bowl game was good enough to get your 5th star back. You took some lumps in the season, but you pulled out some great wins and have re-energized the fans in Madison. Rumor has it your strong finish was good enough to get some looks from the AD in Columbus, who is looking to clean up the mess that was left with the sudden departure of coach Griffin. JCA - a strong finish was enough to get the Huskies one step closer to the elite programs in the country. MSU might not have got the love they were looking for from the pollsters to get into the title game, but they more than made up for that with a HUGE surprise in the final polls. MSU drops just two spots to #5 and earns (or was gifted - is more like it) their 6th star. BDub - After getting robbed in year one, you capped off a great year with a bowl win over a great team. John Crow - a loss in your bowl game proved to be costly. We saw you battling all season long with close victories and close defeats. We know you'll be battling again next season with that stock-pile of talent you have.
