Just wanted to start a thread for those of us who weren't too much into the live blog...

Iowa and fans are ready to play, WE apparently, are NOT!
a very bad feeling about this game. What the hell was that Hemingway?! We might get blown out.
They can run and catch.... We're doomed. TOs are important for this game and Robinson doesn't know that.
We're slow starters
MInnesota 7, MSU 0!!!
is playing pissed! But we did get a stop atleast.
but that is something to work on, not accept...heeey, we stopped that 4th down...
Nice stop D!! We needed that
Good! I want to earn this one...
gets shut down today, we are doomed. Can't pass at all.
Puntasaurus instincts...and didn't get it!
Power football for the 1st!
I think the team is getting into the flow...
are paying off!
It's painful to listen to him. Fitz and OL look good.
Lol, that comment about the defense not having to adjust to Devin really didn't make sense. We all know what Denard brings to the table but to minimize what Devin can do is a big mistake...I'm thinking they will come to blows in the booth before the game's end, hehe
One more redundant comment about The QBs, and I'm muting my tv.
Unfortunately Spielman is not the exception, but is the rule.
He is like most ESPN announcers/commentators, latching onto one thing and hammering it home, being completely oblivious to everything else.
a HUGE game
I know that's right...
He is a beast.
dammit, that was a first down!!!
`Fitz picks holes
I've always felt this was more rhetoric than reality, but we're running it and it's...working?!
Fitz is having a great run ATM.
Toussaints looking good
TOUSSAINT!!! Whew! I think he's matured a little...
Just keep giving him the ball.
Does anyone else think something looks off with Denard when he runs? He seems tentative, and I wonder if he has a sore ankle or something.
That said, FANTASTIC scramble and passing TD for Denard!!!!
I've noticed it the past couple games. He almost seems a little timid but I'm hoping his just a little dinged.
Aren't working out for his designed runs, but I feel like he ran with more confidence earlier in the season. He looks less decisive, and isn't turning on the jets. I hope he's okay, and it's just something temporary...
I haven't noticed any gimpiness, but I haven't been looking for it either. That was great presence by Denard on the TD, good job for him!
He looks very tentative. Good patience there for the TD throw.
I like it.
I like it.
Wow I was screaming run the whole time but oh well, we fuck up the xp!
Botched snap. If we lose by one I will be pissed.
WE WILL NOT LOSE BY ONE!!!
We'll lose by ten, I keed!
Srsly, isn't that about the first thing that comes to mind with a botched xp? Hopefully, it won't be a difference, but Iowa did come to play...
SO DID MINNESOTA, UM 14, MSU 7 !!!
Defense should be nice and rested for this next drive...lets get another stop.
MSU just coughed it up. Minny with decent field position.
Go Golden Gophers!
Denard is def tentative. He isn't running like last year, with confidence. Maybe he is afraid of getting hurt? Or maybe the coaches are telling him, "If you get hurt, we are screwed."
Defense should be nice and rested for this next drive...lets get another stop. Also I just saw Hollowell on that kickoff...arggh burned redshirt
It will be interesting to see what happens to Hollowell after the 2012 class gets here. I have a feeling he is not as talented as T-Rich.
Maybe a Darnell Hood type role where he just turns into a leader on special teams, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
After the last three years it is tough to watch a botched extra point.
Don't look now, but Minnesota...
I'm not holding my breath. They are the lolphers.
# 24 Delonte Hollowell made the tackle on the Iowa kick return. I guess Hollowell isn't redshirting, which is a bit of a surprise
