LoL, I see what you did there, well played! 
Well... Those hqve been the primary adversaries in the Big Ten title race over the past two decades.

The Wolverines have only competed for preseason Big Ten Titles this century/millennium, save one or two seasons under Lloyd.

It "could" be Michigan, but if we are going to venture that far out on the weeds then we might as well toss in Indiana and Michigan.

MSU has already made it to the playoffs, while PSU and Wisconsin have been right on the cusp.

If you are saying that Wisconsin and PSU have been on the cusp of making the playoffs, you could argue that Iowa and Michigan have also been on the cusp of making the playoffs.

In 2015, Iowa went into the Big Ten CCG with a 12-0 record and ranked #4 in the CFP.  Iowa lost the CCG to MSU 16-13, when MSU scored the winning TD with 42 seconds left.  If Iowa stops MSU on that last drive, Iowa goes to the playoffs instead of MSU.

In 2016, Mich lost in OT to OSU.  If Mich would have won that game, odds are good they would have made the playoffs if they go on to win the CCG.  Heck, Mich also lost to Iowa in 2016 on a last second FG.  If Mich wins that game,  they also have a chance to make the playoffs.

The difference is Michigan has always been at least 2 games away.  Iowa and Wisconsin have been one possession away.

Ya Pelini just twisted off too much.If it was just the one time when the fans left early,I could understand.To him that was not showing support/faith in the players/program by the so called best fans in CFB.After that however he almost seemed like a primma donna looking for attention.Or maybe he just wanted out but wouldn't get the benefits if he just stepped down,thus forcing them to fire him
You're overthinking it, Mr. Nubbz.
He is a flaming jackass.  End of story.  If it hadn't been fans leaving before a comeback win it would have been something else.
