MSU's offense has no confidence right now.
Noon (11:30) Games Open Thread
don't tell me they are faking injuries now.????
I'm not getting my hopes up until IU has a 10 point lead late in the 4th, but all these MSU guys dropping like flies does no bode well for Staee down the road.
MSU's D can be abused my swing passes and the screen game as usual. I hope that is a heavy part of our gameplan this year. I know it goes against what the coaches like to do and all, but we need to win that damn game.
Is MSU faking injuries? You don't just get about 10 injuries in a row.
Nah, they would never do something like that, too much class.
It is nice to see their 60 minutes of unecessary roughness catching up to them a little bit though.
It's the MSUHG. Maybe AIRBHG got bored.
Did Jansen get booted to sideline duty?
Ah, roughing the kicker--the Ol' Sparty Special!
Unnecessary Roughness U
IU utilizing the bubble I mean laser screen a lot.
4 in the first quarter. "It appears that the are playing without discipline." No shit.
Borges probably wants to murder Indiana's offensive coordinator.
Damn. Sparty has a ton of penalties so far. Even for them. Sad seeing they have even more injuries than penalties, too...
How undisciplined can you possibly be? 4 personal fouls in the first quarter. Why does the entire media ignore this?
wow another 15 yard penalty.
Stay Classy Sparty.
Colter nearly threw an interception on 2nd down, but thankfully for him Penn State shows everyone why DTs don't often handle the ball (unless you've used them as FBs, like a William Carr type - DaQuan Jones is not that, of course). On the next play, he throws a ball which, if it had been an INT, would have also been a fumble that changed possession probably twice. If you wanted your most cohesive drive in the game to date to go down in flames, that was the way.
Hoosiers in redzone again...but nearly give it away on a fumble.
This is a very MSU performance.
I have always thought that MSU was misnamed. The ancient Spartans were extraordinarily disciplined. These Spartans are extraordinarily ill-disciplined.
Dantonio doesn't look pleased
I just chuckled pretty hard at that.
don't worry he is just stunned
Gholston clutching his nose, a clear sign of having the wind knocked out of him.
I admit it, I laughed.
Wow. MSU should pack it in. This game is already out of hand.
Holy bad coverage, Batman!
Thats probably the game. MSU can't score 17.
IU up 17-0. This is awesome.
Touchdown Hoosiers. wide open TE on after a pump fake.
This team has lost to Ball State two years in a row. This one is far from over.
This Coffman kid on Indiana looks really good. Really accurate so far.
Sparty showed up DOA... 17-0 Indiana
Lets Go Hoosiers!
I love IU right now.
17-0 Indiana. Hilarious.
State hits the IU punter, IU follows by 2 deep passes. 60 yards in penalties in the first quarter.
MSU - looks like they didn't come to play. Mistakes, lack of emotion. MSU will lose if Dantonio doesn't light a fire under their behinds at the half!
[ EDIT if Dantonio doesn't light a fire NOW ]
Wow, indiana lighting them up!
My God. It's beautiful. It's just beautiful.
What the hell??? I thought MSU's defense was supposed to be the most dominant in college football. Even I could have scored on that play.
Please please please let this be the day linear relationships hold.
IU is looking like they might run away with this. GO HOOSIERS! BEAT STAEE!!!
Whoa MSU's national recruiting presence is beginning to pay off now.
I cannot wait for that nickname to die. It is a curse. Hopefully we will put it to bed this year.
Little brother was little brother always. Don't hate fact.
Even if they lose today, though, I'm still just as concerned for our game against MSU. Their entire season would boil down to that game
True. It looks like they thought they could just throw their helmets out onto the field and win, i.e. , they underestimated IU. That won't happen against us.
Yeah, but their lofty season expectatcions are spiraling back to earth rather quickly, and with all the offensive line injuries, they just don't seems like a true threat regardless of their past success against Michigan.
i agree.. JT's problem is that he doesn't attack.. he stands there and lets the receiver come to him. he needs to ATTACK the receiver
Make sure he doesn't watch Mullins in coverage. He is one of the worst I have ever seen in man
I just went to RCMB, I can't stop laughing... Worth it.
