Not much of a thread (not much of a game?!?)... But in case anybody wanted to get their DVR's rolling.
FYI - UM-MSU is on BTN right now
No thanks. My weekend has been bad enough. =(
Do. Not. Want.
Yeah I don't want to see it. Also I hear Michigan is ranked 18th in the BCS. So much for the Sargain rankings
MSU just scored. Crapppppppppp. Not looking good.
Its too soon, just too soon.
No thanks, i was there live and dont need to see it on TV and remember all the pathetic remarks from that fan base after numerous cheap shots.
I am very impressed that anyone could re-watch a game as painful as that. I feel bad Brian has to re-watch it in incredible detail.
because he'll be giving out almost nothing but negatives to nearly everyone.
My son, who is all of 4 years old, is a fan of the 1970s BBC sitcom "The Good Life", as odd as this sounds. Funny, funny show, so I think we'll throw in those DVDs instead. I need to laugh right now anyway.
I was at a wedding on Saturday and only caught the last 10 minutes at a sports bar before the reception. So I feel like I need to watch to feel the full pain I would have felt if I watched the whole thing.
I'm not a masochist.
I saw it in person. I'd rather be waterboarded than subjected to that game again.
And the Spartan Stadium replays were so bad, that I wanted to see them for myself.
One thing I now see is that after Gholston's neck-twist on Denard, Denard got up and moving his head like his neck was indeed hurt on the play. At that moment I was watching, and yelling at, Dantonio. Who was protesting the personal foul call!
I really want to see the Marcus Rush personal foul on Denard; it might be interesting to suggest his suspension to the Conference along with a Gholston suspension for Wisconsin.
This is a super-fast edited version of the game, btw, so it is all game without a lot of Urban Meyer and Spielman and other annoying chatter.
When I see Spartan acquaintances in the weeks and months to come, and they gripe about how "Michigan" may have gotten Gholston suspended for their big game against UW, I want to be able to say that I saw it live and then saw it again later on tape, several times.
Heck there are other threads just posted this evening, in which people were asking about edited packages of the Spartan personal fouls:
Often people get them, think that they're okay, then suffer with them for months and years to come.
That helmet twist was NASTY. I sincerely hopes he gets suspended for that, that's inexcusable.
Does the Big Ten watch the BTN? Maybe they will be appalled and do something? Maybe not.
to see if that Prozac I took is still working.
Gholston and somebody (Rush?) tackle Denard together. While on the ground, with Denard wrapped up, Gholston rolls over him to twist his body. Its one of those vague, thug attempts to hurt a guy without it looking like it.
Gholston is so ghetto. I can't remember the last B1G player I saw that was so ghetto. I see a fair number of guys like Gholston on sentencing days in Circuit Court.
Kid played in the Detroit PSL, dirtiest, life-threatening enviornment of football and that's how the piece of trash is. The conference that the high school I went to banned all out of conference scheduling from it's member schools with the PSL because of incidents that happened I remember reading. Cass Tech is a different story. They're actually civilized there (it's a school for DPS honor students) plus look who the coach there is, Thomas Wilcher.
I don't mind using loaded words; I just like to be careful.
When I say "ghetto," I mean undisciplined, dumb, dirty football. And -- this is critical for me -- a kind of a mens rea on the part of the ghetto player. Somebody who's playing dirty, knows it, and is trying to hide it like a punk.
And that definition fits Gholston perfectly last Saturday.
It's not about race, or even about the Detroit PSL, which has produced some the the greatest stars in the Michigan football galaxy. Now, I'd like to see Marcus Rush, from an upper middle class background at Cincinnati Moeller, suspended just like Gholston. And of course the antithesis of "ghetto" just happens to be Denard Robinson, whose background may be as or more underprivileged than Gholston's.
As for Detroit Southeastern, ("MSU Jr.") with any luck the Detroit Public School system will just close down the Jungaleers and those good kids can go to another school with a more open football staff.
We need to work on a campaign to get Marcus Rush suspended along with Gholston. It was a personal foul with the intent to injure. A sadly successful intent to injure.
This gives everyone the chance to make a compillation of all the late hits from the game, so they can send it to the Big Ten office. I have seen plenty of those posts this weekend.
