Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Well ladies and gents, we're less than16 hours hours away from kick-off. Not much football on TV tonight (San Jose St. vs. Hawaii), so not much else to do but drink. So, what's in everyone's glass tonight?
Also, because it's a Rivalry Week, let's all share the moments when we knew we'd be Wolverine fans instead of Spartan fans (or vice versa for our rational Sparty friends), shall we?
I'll start us off. I'm sipping on an ice cold Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest, and I knew I was a Michigan fan in 3rd grade when my MSU-grad teacher kept talking about how great being a Spartan was, effectively dividing the class into two factions. I just didn't like the way she was talking, so I sided with the Maize and Blue side of the class, and haven't looked back ever since (this decision was solidified when I watched Woodson and the 1997 team win the National Championship as an 11 year old).
Happy Drinking, and Go Blue!
MSU just released some tickets for $75/piece. I got 3 together at the 20 yard line at 7:37pm, so if you were considering going to help the ratio, go do it!
LINK , pretty simple to order, just click the Michigan link.
Just hit the AP wires at work:
"Mountain West, Conference USA combine for 22-member football conference."
The topic of ESPN picking the Oregon-ASU game over Michigan-MSU has already been discussed, but it does seem like Eugene is pretty sleepy if you check the video above. Des even comments on the lack of energy on campus. Is ASU-Oregon even a rivalry?
I remember for UTL that GameDay on Friday was almost constantly mobbed by M fans from morning until they closed up shop late in the afternoon, and the area around it looked like a warzone.
So, I have 2 questions:
(1) Does it seem odd how quiet campus is behind Des?
(2) I've heard dark rumblings that "GameDay doesn't want to go back to East Lansing after [insert reason here]," but I believe Basketball Gameday visited at least once in 2010, so is there any merit to this rumor?
Not that it matters too much, but it would have been a nice profile boost to have another national game spotlighting the M resurgence.
Enjoy the game tomorrow and Go Blue!
