Michigan State loaded up on a tough schedule and didn't look that good this year. Its not a good idea to play a cupcake non-conference schedule, but in prior years you could overcome that if you do really well in a tough conference.

The committee basically said "not anymore". If you play an easy non-con schedule, you are apparently dead in the water.
I appreciate you're trying to make a case for what happened, but I'm not sure they should've chucked out the quality wins and record in last 10 games with the bathwater.

Plus, what if you are a strong mid-major like Missouri St. and no one will schedule you in the noncon?
