things go poorly
I like to make the trip to a lot of home games but could not make it last week. Just a few questions about umass game experience.
1. How loud was the stadium compared to Uconn
2. What rawk songs were played and how often?
3. Did they announce slippery rock score?
4. What did people think of the pre game pump up video?
5. Any other video's played?

I think we need to visit the positive side of our last game. What we've seen the past few years makes us quick to roll our eyes. However, I think there is a lot of good to take away.
-We would have not won this game last year. Why? Offense. not just the fact we are denarded now, but, he does play into it. We can do soooo much more with less risk this year its scary. No one had to key on tate like the nard dog. meaning you could stop our running game by stopping only one part. And big plays were possible but with MUCH more risk last year. We stretch a team out so much with real good options, we can eliminate the risk that would have killed us in a game like this. Imagine what more turnovers would have resulted in. yeah.
-We showed nothing on defense. I know, we don't have much to show, but, scheme wise, We played the most vanilla defense I've seen for 3 weeks and we're 3-0. If your not motivated, playing on your heels and not calling anything to help that out, what happened saturday is going to happen. Now, it did get close, but, it got close real quick at the end, so I can see why we didn't panic into anything. That was a very tight, passive and unprepared defense. AND, we're 3-0. I don't think there is a lot in the playbook, but, there has to be some get em' off the field plays to unleash. We got in position to get off, just needed that little extra from somewhere.
-Cam Gordon found out what being the deepest guy on the field gets you. More interceptions then jumping routes with crappy angles.
-The offense learned never to get off the gas.
-Their pissed like only a loss could get you pissed.....and we're 3-0
May have already been posted on here but... I felt like redoing my Fitzgerald Toussaint picture as it was my most simplistic and worst looking one... so without further ado Fitz Toussaint in MS Paint.. also the may or may not be a certain sparty player failing to tackle him...

(My sincerest apologies to Mark Moundros, whom I have changed into the aforementioned spartan player)
I've gotten emails, tweets, and everything else you can imagine asking about Demetrius Hart and his recent visit to Auburn. The reports from various Auburn sites were that Hart had an amazing time, and Michigan fans were nervous about where Michigan stood now.
I spoke with Demetrius' mother about everything today, including the visit to Auburn, and what's next for Demetrius. When I asked how the visit went she said, "I didn't go on the trip to Auburn, but his (Demetrius') uncle went with him. Demetrius said he liked it, and so did his uncle. His uncle said that overall though it was about a 7 out of 10."
As far as what's next for Demetrius, he had always planned on taking a few more visits, and then making his decision since he'll be graduating early. "He's going to be visiting Alabama and Arkansas next, within the next month. He's just going to Arkansas though to support his teammates. He's not really interested in going there," Ms. Hart said.
She had a long talk with Demetrius about everything recently, and the process is tiring on him. He's taking everything in right now, and Demetrius told her that he's not sure when his decision will come, but it shouldn't be too long now.
Michigan Monday is up. Pretty sharp this week, Tony. Likes Denard, Taylor Lewan, Mike Martin, and the offensive scheme; skeptical of the RB's, special teams, and pretty much the entire defense (sans Martin)
So, I'm from Columbus and am coming up with some of my boys for the Sparty game. Coming Friday, leaving Sunday. What do you guys think is the best spot on campus to catch the night football games that actually has audible game sound, and not music blasting through the speakers?
