Sending Little Brother to Rose Bowl
It won't be an issue when they don't beat PSU.
PSU has really turned it up the seconed half of the season.
Also possible last game for JoPa.
isn't every game a possible last game for JoPa?
"Depends". ; )
JoePa could really "Ensure" PSU of a good bowl by winning this one.
he already announced he is staying after this year
In all likelihood, Wisconsin will win at home next week vs wisconsin
I saw that also, wondered if this was like a fall game scrimmage or something.
If Wisconsin and Ohio State win but Michigan State loses: Ohio State would earn the automatic berth based on its Oct. 16 win against Ohio State.
In other news, the Prime Minister of Sweden visited Washington today, and my tiny little nipples went to France.
Wisconsin is playing Northwestern, not Wisconsin
"Go Buckeyes!" - Mark Dantonio
I wonder if he'll say the same thing this year?
I asked some of my MSU friends if they would be rooting for Michigan this weekend and they said no. It is just another example of how all State fans hate Michigan more than they like their own team.
I just want to beat Ohio State
So what if we get them to the Rose Bowl. It means we beat OSU and our bowl game will now be a New Years Day game.
If Michigan beats OSU, and MSU beats PSU, then New Years Day bowl. If, however, PSU beats MSU, then we aren't in any better position because we would be tied with PSU and Iowa at 8-4. We MIGHT get past Iowa in the selection process, but if we don't then we are still 6th in line and Insight-bound.
GO BLUE!!! Beat OSU!!!
To quote the immortal Joey Tribiani, the point is "moo". Sparty is going to lose to Penn State.
Edit: I'm sorry, but it did.
I'd rather help my little brother be successful than lose to that MeatHead Jackwagon that's been strealing my lunch money for 6 years.
Seems like a no-brainer to me...
Since we seem to be voting on the subject, I'm going to vote for two different things:
1. We beat OSU.
2. Penn State beats MSU.
Someone please put up the Herm video!!!
I'm more concerned about beating than Ohio State then sending Michigan State to the Rose Bowl. If anything MSU goes to the Rose Bowl, plays a better team, gets bent over and the reality finally sets in to MSU fans that their team is good not great. So win win for us.
I think it would be great if MSU went to the rose bowl and played either TCU or Boise State. I believe that if Oregon plays for the national championship the Rose bowl is then required to take an at large bid. I think TCU or Boise State would pound MSU into the ground and that would be very funny.
I was talking with the PSU fan in my office and I predicted a season ending Lion win. It's going to happen. We should stop worrying about that team in East Lansing and worry about taking care of our own business.
The next thread lamenting the fact MSU goes to the Rose Bowl with a Michigan win will be negbombed past oblivion. Michigan State means nothing. They are 2nd rivals at best. This is GOD DAMNED, MOTHER FUCKING, TRUCK-DRIVING, PEDERAST, BUCK-TOOTHED, HILLBILLY, REDNECK, ILLITERATE, POSSOM-EATING, COUSIN-FUCKING, SHIT-EATING, WINE-COOLER-LOVING OHIO STATE WEEK.
FUCKING FOCUS ON WHO YOUR REAL RIVAL IS.
Who cares about anything besides Ohio State this week?
Don't forget, these assholes went for two "Because they couldn't go for 3"
Don't forget, these assholes brought German Shepards to mess with our players before the game of the century
Don't forget, these assholes end their official season flyers with "Beat Michigan"
this is THE GAME. get ready.
Is that you Gris? That sounded a lot like Clark Griswold to me.
deck the halls with boughs of holly
I need more eggnog after that rant!
You forgot to mention something about sweater vests.
But tell me how you really feel.
Clean out your coolers boys and girls, and keep them that way.
My ma taught me that a good big brother takes care of his little brother. If they're best season in the last 40 years puts them on the cusp of the Rose Bowl, they've earned the right to play in the bset bowl of them all. So congrats to them. And I'd love to be able to say "you're welcome" because of our biggest win since January 1, 1998. Besides, I'd much rather see Sparty go to their first Rose Bowl in 20 years then see Bielema or OSU go.
OH HOW I HATE OHIO STATE!
At least it will be a Win-Win situation when we line up for the game winning field goal
and then, the fake. Jesus, don't talk about us kicking game-winning field goals.
As those of us who were in attendance at the Washington game in 2002 know, there is always a chance no matter how hopeless your kicking game has looked.
We had a thread about this last week: who cares?
If sparty goes to the Rose Bowl, so be it. Let's beat OSU and keep moving forward.
This shouldn't be an issue. Our desire to win our games more than we care about how Michigan State does separates us from Sparty. That, test scores, and common decency.
Even if we send them to the Rose Bowl they are gonna get killed by Stanford. Wait...that will give those Harbaugh lovers more ammo.
If they go 11-1, they deserve the Rose Bowl.
They will be the luckiest 11-1 team in college football history. Fake FG to beat ND, late comebacks to beat Northwestern and Purdue plus they didn't even play OSU.
I don't think they're an incredible team, but they've won. If Michigan won a few more games on fluke plays or because of opponent meltdowns we would be pushing for the Rose Bowl every time. It's not a different situation just because they're MSU.
I believe the title of luckiest team in college football history goes to 2 loss 2007 national champs LSUcks.
Were the most fortunate team ever
My vote's for them. Either way, I think the point is championship caliber teams have their fair share of escapes. It's definitely humbling to us that Sparty is way up while we are down, but give them the credit they deserve.
If we beat OSU this Saturday, how many UM fans do you think will honestly be thinking about who goes to the Rose Bowl.
I'm sure the first thing I will do is run home and check to see if MSU won and will be Rose Bowl bound. So, would you rather have us lose to OSU so that Wiscy can go instead? I am just curious here.
