So, Phil Steele says M is going to make a bowl game this year. He said the same thing last year.
He says M will be the 6th (tied with Wisconsin) best team in the league. And M plays all five of the others. So, if there are no upsets, M will lose to the 5 teams above it, lose to Wisconsin because the teams are even and the game is in Wisconsin. That means no non-conference losses to make a bowl. Yikes. Better hope we upset someone.
