Brian -- it would be all kinds of awesome if you could get Jim Brandstatter to do the intro to the podcast. His voice and that theme go so well together.
MGoPodcast 1.6: Michigan State Preview
The podcast is back, and long: nearly an hour. We talk about the Indiana game with Tim, the Michigan State game with LVS of The Only Colors, and we bring Jamie Mac of Just Cover on for a new regular feature in which we talk about the Big Ten and get some predictions out of him. LVS predicts Michigan to win! I don't even know if I'm going to do that.
GEEZ...I was thinking checkered pants and grainy TV's with that theme music. Am I watching a Rocky rerun?
From MSU blogger guy: MSU has no run game. Central beat MSU and runs an offense similar to UM, but UM has much more talent.
Semi-OT: Kos is pronounced with a long O. http://crooksandliars.com/2007/08/16/markos-moulitsas-vs-stephen-colbert
In the future, I think you have to get the funky organ solo (at about 1:45 in the song) from the theme in there somewhere during the podcast (maybe between guests, since that's when Michigan Replay would use it is after breaks).
Bottom line: the more Across 110th Street (Instrumental) Theme, the better!
Besides the minor tweak, great job as always, guys!
Really fantastic this week. Each week they really get better and better.
How early in the week did you record the interview with the guy from The Only Colors? He mentioned a bunch of things that may play into the game, but he never once brought up any possible injury and hit to playing time for Tate Forcier. Was he just convinced that Tate would play, or do you think it just escaped his mind?
Keep up the good work.
Sunday afternoon. I don't think the news about Forcier had come out yet; at the very least, I hadn't heard about it when we recorded the segment.
Has there been anything through the week that makes you change your mind about the high-scoring, lack of defense, "it's going to be chaotic and strange things will happen, but Michigan will win in a close one" sort of prediction?
I know on Sunday afternoon after the Indiana game I was fully convinced we were going to make Cousinichol look like the greatest QB in history, but over the course of the week, my feelings have tempered, and I'm a bit more hopeful.
Did your in-depth analysis of the Wisconsin game change any of your opinions about how MSU played and how they will fare on Saturday?
Just saw this now. I guess the easiest thing at this point is to just send you here: http://www.theonlycolors.com/2009/10/2/1066195/preview-michigan-state-vs...
