State defended themselves in the corner of the endzone.
College Football Open Thread Night 2
Is there anything else you can do but laugh at MSU WR's? Seems like they've corrected their problems from last year but hey.....FIRE ROUSHAR!
Roushar was pretty horrible as a coordinator. But a change in scheme won't change WRs who can't catch, linemen who can't block, and QBs who can't throw.
Pepper and the other dude just ro-sham-bo'd for blumpkins but they both threw scissors. Guess they have to scissor.
Sparty may end up winning this game comfortable but if they get 8 wins this year that would be a good season. 9 or 10 wins would be freakin amazing .
Their schedule is pretty easy.
Man, they're in a game with 4 win western. They look like shit.
They could also improve a la Wisconsin last year - they damn near rose from the dead, especially at o-line. Went from looking SUPER terrible to dismantling Nebraska like Lenny accidentally destroying tiny defenseless bunnies that he really only loved too much.
how aweful MSU's schedule really is.
What is sad about games like this, though, is that it highlights just how bad the Big 10 teams not named UM or OSU probably will be this year. Nobody expected MSU to be a top-10 outfit, but this team was expected to make a rebound and be competitive. The conference needs teams like MSU to be solid, and right now they look pretty bad.
I think you can throw Nebraska in there, they'll be good. Some people expect UM to lose to them.
What are the chances that an entire receiving corps can possibly be worse than the year before? When they pass, they look like that HS wing-T team that throws 3 times a game.
Is it bad that I turned to the Texas Tech - SMU game to see something related to ok football?
Check out NDSU at KSU on Fox Sports 1. KSU is up 21-17 with less than 7:40 in the 4th but NDSU has the ball.
Dammit my cable went out!
I think you should be happy about that.
Yup. I'm in Ann Arbor and only BTN is out. Black out screen. All others are good
Jim Delaney Conspiracy!
Mne too! Fuck you comcast!
BTN and a few other stations were out for a bit. They just came back.
Doesn't State do this every season though? I bet they win 9 games easy with their easy schedule and defense alone.
Notre Dame, Michigan, Nebraska, Northwestern. Theyre "easily" winning these games? I dont even think they can beat Iowa this year with that offense.
Good idea. Me too.
One of the crazier football stories I've heard in a while:
Texas Tech is starting a WALK-ON TRUE FRESHMAN in their first game tonight - and he's playing out of his mind. 3 passing TD's and 1 running TD.
He's not really a true walk on t like you'd think. He had scholarship offers but chose to walk on at TTU
Granted he wasn't asked to do much other than a bazillion bubble screens, but he was solid. 4 TDs, 0 INTs and 412 yards.
This is embarassing for MSU. It's painful to watch. And my goodness he was so wide open.
States easily the best punting team in the BIG.
Time to go watch some paint dry, all
Uh....NDSU down 4 and has the ball and is just converting 3rd down one after another.
Let's see if the defense can get their point total tied with the offense.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnndddd an interception....
...when you see it.
I have to admit it took me a second, but clearly he's trying to set up field position for the defense.
Another pick for Sparty. QB had a dude wide open and threw it right to the defender instead.
Lulz at these BTN announcers.
Jesus, these guys are seriously MSU fanbois
How many picks has Western thrown? And State is only up 16-7?
As it turns out, only 3 INTs according to the box score to date. It seems like about twice that, but then the funny thing about the passing stats between the Spartans and Broncos tonight is that they more or less mirror each other save for the INTs.
MSU's offense runs one passing play - drawing PI. Which isn't working out too well.
Hell of a play in the TT game
Lol Arnett looking for a flag.
And Sparty fans being classy as usual.
I love how they are gushing over the snaps on special teams now, not much else to highlight about a B1G team I guess
...but I am surprised by how little I feel like combining Ro*Tel and Velveeta tonight.
- 2010: 6-3 over Kansas
- 2011: 37-24 over Minnesota
- 2012: 22-7 over Colorado State
- 2013: ?
might be the best State on TV tonight.
