The SEC will protest and we will only get 7 in.

A lot of mid major teams will be left out.

O well. It might help inflate our bowl record if teams like Michigan are playing are playing a dead beat in Detroit. Or they might not care and barely show up.

I just check and the Big Ten would only have 10 bowl-elegible teams if Michigan win today. Illinois and Northwestern only has 5 win each.

I could see a team like Rutgers get left out if they have only 6 wins. Same with Illinois and/or NW if they get to 6.

I'd be ok with that. With the kind of cupcake schedules most Power 5 teams schedule, 6 wins is not an accomplishment. Even if you schedule one good OOC game, you could still get there with 3 gimmes and a 3-6 record against real teams.
