|35 weeks 5 days ago||So What do Indiana and Michigan have in Common?||
Only two Big 10 teams to both loose to Big 10 new comers Maryland and Rutgers. This board laughed and snided about them getting into the Big 10. Remember this when the team is good again, and stay humble.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Sugar Bowl||
Spartan Tears Taste Like Sugar
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Bowl Payout||
All bowl money is shared equally among big ten teams.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Actually, it was Mark Hollis'||
Actually, it was Mark Hollis' idea, and MSU reached out to UNC. Original idea was two games in 2006 against service academies, but war prevented that. Hollis knows what he is doing - he came up with the idea of outdoor hockey that everyone is copying. Also, the event is planned to be continued, and MSU will be playing in 2013.
Game is definitley bringing tons of publicity. MSU and NC all over the news, ESPN, and national coverage.

Never once "pretended to be a Michigan fan".
|4 years 33 weeks ago||No one on this board realizes||
The billboard in 2008 was a response to Mike "the mouth" Hart. The BCS representatives are correct. Just throwing out the head to head, the one actual consistency in the schedules was all three played at Iowa. Two won, one lost. The idea that MSU beat Wiscy who beat OSU does not fly. This does not take into account home field.
Oh ya, the other consistency is they all beat the snot out of UM.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||I read Tim's post every single week.||
I found it doing a search on recruting - and thus this board.
I find it a fine collection of information on the recruiting landscape in our conference. Just thought it was very amusing "why did Sparty pass us, wha. Dee Hart, wha..."
I have also read many other posts on the board, and respect Magnus' contribution more than most. As a group you do amuse me though. So many people demanding Brandon come out with a decision all because the MSM all are speculating on RR's job security. Do you really want your AD to answer to the same MSM that you love to trash (and rightfully so).
I won't be popping in to check on your winningest football team on January 1. I wish your team the best running and passing against the SEC. I will be skipping that game for a game you should be adding to your agenda.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||LOL - One guys Epinion||
And you start to whine because MSU passed UM. Not a word abour Wisconsin passing. Pitty - so focussed on MSU.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Michigan and Mississippi State||
|4 years 34 weeks ago||You an MSU||
You said they would get rocked by PSU
You could not understand prior to the season why they were getting sighted as a B10 dark horse.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||You Sir||
Have Sparty Envy.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Youth||
Seems to be a re-occuring theme lately.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||obsessing||
|4 years 36 weeks ago||So now what a reporter interprets is FACT???||
I know I'm wasting my breath, but notice there are no quotes in the article above. It was the reporter's interpretation of what was said.
We all know reporters always get it right - right?
|4 years 38 weeks ago||My problems||
Are nothing compared to this! Thanks for the pick me up.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Wow||
Can I have some of that happy juice your taking?
|4 years 39 weeks ago||26-6 against Illinois||
Do you really think MSU was favored by 20 or more?
|4 years 40 weeks ago||Four combos here after this weekend||
Both lose - who cares
MSU lose, Mizzou win - yes
MSU win, Mizzou lose - no
Both win - not likely
|4 years 47 weeks ago||My advice to you sir||
is to stop drinking so much on Thursday nights. It's distorting your perception.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Hmmm||
Are you seriously worried about what MSU might do in their bowl? Obsessing?
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Or Toledo||
Oh wait. People in glass houses....
|4 years 47 weeks ago||The goal is not to avoid a rematch||
but a rematch in back to back weeks. If you only ply divisional opponents in the last two weeks, there is no chance for a rematch in the last two weeks. Thus the need to avoid cross divisional games in the last week, as the other major conferences do.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||And division record||
is the second criteria? Give OSU their only loss, who beat PSU. Guess what, they still go to the BTCG.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Since the two teams are in differnt divisions||
Most likely a cross over loss would be less significant in the standings. So if M beats OSU for their only loss, OSU would still make the BTCG (and vice versa). That team wins the BTCG, goes to the BCS title game with one loss (ala Oklahoma), and wins the national title. The Game is meaningless.
In the now "old days" you could not lose the last game of the year in the Big Ten amd make it to the naional title.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||It will create a nice rivalry||
But the team that becomes the consistent winner will beome the longer term rival of the team that becomes the consistent winner in the other division. Auburn/Alabama is a nice rival, but nationally people are starting to talk about Bama/Florida. Could be really good for M/OSU if they both get to their historical performance at the same time
|5 years 2 weeks ago||When exactly did the Spartans rush the field||
And never do they rush the BBall court like the scene after the UConn win.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Your believe the players did not care about the Rose Bowl||
which was played a full seven weeks later? I'll take that bet.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||First Flying car was just FCC approved||
Maybe not as sexy as Doc Brown's, but you gotta start somewhere
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Does anyone ever acknoledge that MSU should have had another TO||
With 36 seconds to go State misses a first down and immediately calls TO. A flag is tossed for 12 men on the field, which there were, and the refs never give State the TO back that could have been used prior to the last play. Lots of errors by the refs.
"Three years following the game, Dave Parry, the conference's coordinator of football officials, said, "that play, as much as we've put that under a high-powered microscope, was correct. We could not prove that timer wrong."
Let it go.

But probably the best in the country.
