"60 Minutes of Unnecessary Roughness" . . . Oops!
Wasn't that last punt a perfect analogy for this Michigan State team? They score a TD, or come close to it, and they get a penalty which makes them lose the game.
I thought he was some what pushed into the kicker, but still.
Stay away from the Rose Bowl another 20 years by it....
You are my hero.
+ Eleventy bazillion.
Them losing on a penalty is poetic justice. Served.
The only way it could've been better was if Gholston had been the one to get the penalty.
That derp was the most enjoyable derp in the history of derps.
Gholson. Tom Gholson, thank you very much.
My wife says MSU plays football like their solar car races. And, she was at the Formula Sun Grand Prix, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and saw MSU's solar car in person. I lol'd loudly at her great analogy.
Man, if I were a state fan, I'd be pissed.
Fortunately, I'm the opposite of a state fan.
If you were a State fan you would be pissed, however, it was the right call, and probably could have been a 15-yarder. Course, I'm sure you're not a State fan, so we're all good!
He ran into the kicking leg, right?
Pissed because you don't think it was a legitimate call or pissed because it was soooo stupid?
I think he means pissed in the sense of "completely fucking wasted on Natty Ice since 2 this afternoon" but I don't wanna put words in his mouth.
"...completely fucking wasted on the four Natty Ices he's had since 2 this afternoon."
Fixed that for you.
the same Isiah Lewis who, as Gordon said, "got trucked like a ho" on Montee Ball's first run from scrimmage game 1 of MooU - Wiscy in East Lansing.
second some idiot Sparty was on Sirius college sports radio tonight congratulating Wiscy but downing UM, remindig the host of Little Brother comment, sayig that Hart works at EMU cause that is the only job he can get and smacking Wal-Mart wolverines. Goes to show UM owns Sparty psychologically and next year on the field.
The inferiority complex is so bad up there that anything that happens to Sparty, whether it is good or bad, is always compared Michigan.
It's not that they had a shot to go to the Rose Bowl and lost legitamately, but that Michigan sucks because they may have a shot at a BCS bowl and boo hoo.
Makes me smile.
Pissed because you're a State fan?
If you were a State fan, I'd be laughing at you now. Good think you're not. It's an evil laugh.
So what are the odds they'll be ranked ahead of us BCS wise. That would be dumb because I don't think any bowl wants them as at large.
I'm kind of hoping we finish 14th and MSU finishes 13th. Then we get picked for a BCS bowl and they don't. That would be perfect.
That would make me go ape if I was a State fan, but seeing as how I am the opposite of that, it is a dream scenario!
There is precedent for this, back in 1999. A repeat would be nice as a reminder to State about who matters nationally.
Teams that should fall below us: Houston, UGA, Oklahoma. That puts us at 13th or so. MSU can't move up by common voting precedence, so that means we should pass them and go to 12th. The only way we don't pass MSU is if Baylor passes both of us, MSU stays at 13 and Michigan goes to 14.
I think we are ranked in the 11-13 range tomorrow. What's good about this, though, is that it probably keeps MSU ahead of TCU, potentially leaving them out of the bowl if Georgia and Houston don't both fall past them. If OSU gets into the NCG, then that means that there are 3 true non-AQ picks in the BCS because Houston is no longer an AQ and Bama would eat the #3/#4 non-champ AQ, leaving Stanford as an at-large team. That opens up potential teams for us to play. Stanford, Baylor, KSU, BSU, VaTech, and WVU are all possibilities at this point.
Moo U always seems to do some stupid $hit to get themselves out of a game. History repeats itself over and over again. Mike Clark (WRIF) is having a meltdown as I type this.
Michigan probably just lost it's BCS game due to MSU's roughing the kicker. Since the MSU/UW game was close, voters will keep MSU ahead of UM. Arghhh!!!
lost so UM still has a good shot at a BCS bowl. OU and UGA losing big help Michigan a lot.
They're already way behind in the computers, so falling even a couple of spots in the polls will be enough for us to pass them.
it's ok people oklahoma lost bad, houston lost, and georgia lost. We'll be in the top 14
Probably not. OU, Georgia, probably Houston will all drop below us.
I think it tastes delicious, not bitter at all.
Bitter like a sweet, sweet jar of Sugar!!!!!
Like a big bowl of Krusty Flakes.
could someone enlighten me on the bitter half of this..? I understand the sweet!
It's bittersweet that it's a virtual lock that Michigan will be BCS Bowling and sparty will not.
Bittersweet would imply that there was something bad about that.
I posted once, and it's all over ... sorry - lol.
I feel, with Michigan and Ohio State down, this was MSU's biggest chance to do something -- go to the ROSE BOWL, while we were down, and it didn't happen... Thing is, Ohio State won't be down for long, nor will Michigan. When will MSU play in the Big Ten Championship again ..... I am betting it'll be awhile.
how is that "down"? Except for losing to an MSU team that, per Brady, manhandled us, and to an Iowa team we should've at least had the chance to tie at the end of regulation, how were we down this season?
Sorry - my bad.
But you can't feel bad for Sparty here .. you can't.
because they didn't pass the course the first time?
As I remember either they lost big or win. A competitive game won't drop them much.
Apparently over on rcmb that was a "bullshit call" and the punter is a "fucking flopper"
Don't run into the punter -- EVER!
One rose bowl in over 40 years
That screams on how lucky we've been.
Hopefully ... Michigan can get back there soon.
