1. Who wins?
2. Will you watch?
1. Hopefully Staee
2. A little bit
1) Lil' bro 72 Ohio 67. Gary Harris will have a big game.
2) Ya, at Ashley's.
Always root against ohio even if it is little brother
Rooting for lil Bro over Ohio and Iowa to upset the badgers!!
MSU 66 OSU 63
2. No. It's hockey day.
2. Of course
OHIO is in Athens, remember? Ohio is in Columbus.
Msu wins because they're at home. And yes I'll watch.
Nebraska getting hosed. One of those elbows that looked clearly inadvertent and Penn St winds up getting 4 free throws and the ball down 3.
Karma, it seems, as PSU misses 3 of the 4 FTs.
Make that 5 of 6 FTs.... lol. That is epic.
1. Ohio will win.
2. Nope, I'll probably be too busy flipping between CBC and NBC in a run-up to the Wings game tonight.
The game isn't for 3 hours...where's the hockey thread?
No kidding. Although, guaranteed, it will be full of anti-hockey snark.
1) Well, the line on this one, if anyone is interested, is typically trending at MSU -2 with the O/U at 130 points on most sites. I could see Ohio State and the under by a hair (yet Massey projects the game at nearly a 50-50 tossup). The comparative stats would heavily favor the Buckeyes, but sadly for them, the game is in East Lansing. It seems like it should be close regardless.
2) I will probably tune in.
lost to ohio, I'm rooting for Sparty
I will watch after yard work, gophers are eating up my yard, they're not very golden IMO
This will be an ugly game
and Go Hawkeyes!!!
title should read CBB, not MBB, I associate the latter with our boys
the bigger threat to challenge us for the championship? That said, MSU has looked disorganized the few times I looked in on them; I think OSU could take the game. For some reason, I am intrigued, and definitely plan to watch for a little while.
rooting for MSU. I think it's best that they split with each other, which means it's more likely that we would want the home team to win each game.
I think Ohio will win, but MSU beat Kansas and Ohio lost to Kansas, so using that information, we already know that MSU will win.
Yes, I will be watching, but it's not like I'll be jumping out of my seat or cheering. It will just be a casual interest on a saturday with little else on.
I would prefer that MSU win, but after seeing Ohio against us and MSU struggle with Nebraska and Iowa I think Ohio will win.
And we want MSU to win. Tough rooting for either of these teams but I'll nod approvingly if MSU wins.
I agree. You really don't want any top of the league teams winning road games.
It's strange, but as more years pass, I find that I despise Michigan State much more passionately than OSU. I would like to see State's football, basketball, and hockey programs all shot directly into the sun. Metaphorically speaking.
I just can't stand the way all three teams play, there's seemingly very littlle art to any of it. They constantly push the physical/borderline-dirty enveolpe, daring the officials to make calls and knowing that not everything will get called, especially when they're at home.
I respect Izzo's teams but, yuck - playing against them must be like being in a street fight and playing for him doesn't look like much fun, either.
Their hockey team's style of play has been garbage for years - talk about wrecking the fastest game on earth. Trap, clutch, obstruct, hold, flip one at the net on occasion and try to win 2-1...
Their football program is a plague. Always has been...
Buckeyes win.....Sparty cries....
Yes, I will be watching it.
When does college football start??
...but I am "rooting" for Sparty.
2. my sources say no.
I wouldn't root for ohio in anything even if they were playing the nazis.
In bowl games because it is good for the BIG and for the rivalry. I was pulling hard for Lloyd in his last game because I had a lot of respect for him ( and hate Florida)
make an exception to root for ohio against the Nazis. Especially if they were Illinois Nazis
I hate Illinois nazis.
Who do I want to lose more? Ohio
Whose fans do I want to watch suffer? Staee
Will I watch? Some but not all of it, to watch the whole thing would sour my stomach.
IMO, it's always fun to watch teams I hate lose at home, just to see the butt-hurt of their home fans. Therefore, best-case scenerio between these two teams is for the road team to always beat the home team.
whenever these teams play is that I want the home team to lose, so their fans feel the most pain.
I like this theory.
If I knew we had a win in the bag against OSU I would root for them to beat MSU, but since we already lost once and we've yet to play the 2nd, I'm leaning towards OSU to lose.
Yes, we still have 2 games against MSU both of which could go against us (or for us, or split). But since we know for sure OSU has a win over us at this present point in time, I'm rooting for OSU to lose.
Not really sure why you wouldn't watch this game (by choice not circumstance). It should be a great game.
I don't know if I can root for anyone. I think State will lose more games, so I guess handing OSU an L might benefit us more. The great thing is, one of these teams has to lose and that helps us.
However, I think OSU takes it in a tight one. I would definitely enjoy watching the Izzone's tears.
I will hold my nose and root for Sparty. It's a tough call - I really wish Iowa hadn't choked against MSU last week. Sparty could yet be a contender.
Last time OSU traveled to Breslin, it was a very happy outcome for us. Good times.
This time around, I guess I'm rooting for the meteor.
2. No. It's a Saturday night.
So you'll be watching Antiques Roadshow instead?
Ohio to lose b/c they beat us and I hold very little fear towards MSU.
I'll stream it while I'm supposed to finding a job and writing resumes. Yes, this says a lot about my situation.
Do you know how much crap we are going to get from MSU fans if they win? This really is a lose lose situation.
What are they going to say? "Ha ha, your team is in the top 5 and has one loss - you guys suck!"
If they really want to play the transitive game, we just dominated a Minnesota team that beat them.
Nope, what my biggest Homer MSU fbook friend said was "GREAT WIN MSU WE DID WHAT MICH COULDN'T"
I replied saying what? beating OSU at home?
He replied by saying no "beating a good team"
I said o ok, so Minn is a bad team now because we beat them at home, where MSU lost to them?
I got no response.. and this kid is a girl of all girl's with how he literally lives on fbook and how fast he responds..
The 4 years of their streak in football was the worst, least that is over
This whole game is pretty ugly so far
MSU looks pretty bad. Ohio is hardly playing a great game, but you get the sense that they're going to gradually surge ahead.
EDIT: maybe not. Ohio looks like a one-man team.
I'm sort of rooting for Sparty, but watching Izzo freakout is always fun.
Lol at Payne
Is hard to watch. I find myself hating DeShaun Thomas more and more everytime he touches the ball.
Sparty makes fun of Michigan girls? It seems like every crowd shot they show of the Izzone it's full of dorks.
In the crowd also, bunch of white trashy kids that couldn't get into UofM of which 90 % are in state
Yes. Rosey cheeked bastard.
He's quietly developed a bubble but.
Michigan has far less because they are hot and smart.
"durrdurrr we on the TV!!"
State wins. They better win. True choke job if they manage to lose.
Not watching. This would just be an ugly game to see.
Got to hand it to Deshaun Thomas - OSU *needs* him to go supernova each game to be in it and he's delivered every time. If he ever misses major time, the Buckeyes are hard pressed to score over 40, period
Yep. And of course we let him score 20. The way it looks now we're going to stomp both of these teams at home.
He shot 8-18 (44%) against us. It's not like we got totally shredded. We lost the game almost entirely due to our offense.
I hate them both equally.
Always Waddle around the court and looks like he needs to take a dump?
Man, this is really a badly-played game. How many shots have completely missed the rim and clanked off the backboard today?
State has zero pure shooters.
Dakich is talking up Craft like he's Magic Johnson. The guy has 5 points and 4 turnovers.
annoying to listen to him during the game. And that graphic where he had OHIO as the top team in the B1G right now. I wanted to reach through the screen and ring his neck.
gets away with murder, I hate how that guy is allowed to pull the crap he does, he hacks so much and doesn't get called for it.
He uses his hands A LOT.
I don't get the love affair either. It's like the refs swallow their whistles because "it's Aaron Craft, and he's a great defender," rather than just calling it as it is.
Seems like at least once a game, they bring up the fact he's a high school valedictorian, former starting QB for his high school, is pre-med, or can do a Rubik's Cube in 2 min.
I was hoping someone got a screenshot of that
Haha what the hell was that last shot? Glad to see MSU win though.
That's just what I wanted - MSU to win but look like crap in the process. Now for Iowa to upset Wisconsin.
Despite my affiliation with Bucky, I don't want Wisconsin to suddenly become a Big Ten championship contender, because I want that for ourselves ... so, go Iowa.
Horrible shot.. Glad to see ohio lose.
Just took a jab at that last "shot"
Well, MSU got the win. They usually never pull it off when I root for them. And poor Shannon Scott.
Good outcome for us, I think. OSU is probably the better team and we needed them to lose more. Sparty will take a few on the chin in the coming weeks.
but even better is Iowa up 30-10 on Wisconsin with 5 minutes left in the first half. Especially considering our only match-up vs Wisconsin this year is in Madison.
This game was like watching two hobos fight over who gets to wash your car.
Yeah, "hobos" was the euphemism that my cronies and I always used to refer to State and Buckeye grads when I was at Michigan too. Good call.
But not out of any pity like my fellow Michigan alum brother suggests. I want to be all the more satisfied when we beat them TWICE this year!
And in spite of the sloppiness, I thought it was a pretty fun game to watch!
