We'll get MSU's best shot no matter what. Question is how good a shot that is, and whether we suffer from road jitters.

Michigan for the win but doesn't cover.
|1 day 29 min ago||We know he met with Brandon||
We don't know, really, the nature of the conversation. My best guess would be that there was vague talk about what it might take to bring Miles to Ann Arbor, but no actual offer.
|1 day 21 hours ago||28-24 Michigan||
|1 day 21 hours ago||He's not. All the cases||
He's not. All the cases discussed are NFL coordinators becoming college coordinators.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Schiano||
He's available, desperately wants a HC job and is an alum/former Paterno staffer.
|3 days 13 hours ago||He's a good coach, dude. A jerk but a good coach.||
He's a good coach, dude. A jerk but a good coach.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Not a bad choice for them,||
Not a bad choice for them, actually. System continuity and he's a good coach. But he's not exactly young, and I thought they were focused on getting an offensive minded coach?
|3 days 20 hours ago||I'm not too worried for Wisconsin||
But it will make Indiana and OSU more difficult, since we kinda sorta need Lewis to take the slot against those teams.
|4 days 59 min ago||Kelly's days are numbered, I think||
Possible that ND, LSU and USC will all be looking for coaches this offseason. Outside Herman, I wonder who the big candidates would be.
Can't stand the bastard, but Narduzzi would have to be one. And PJ Fleck. Not sure who else.

I thought the 2014 season was canceled. It was, right? I can't seem to remember :P
In all seriousness, that ND game sort of illustrates the point I was making, as the final score was more a reflection of our incompetence than ND being amazing. That's what I saw in this game too: a good-but-not-great Wisconsin team beating an MSU team that wasn't doing itself any favors.
|4 days 20 hours ago||I'm not taking away from||
I'm not taking away from Wisconsin winning in EL, and they were the better team. I just don't really see them much differently than I did before. MSU was a disaster, though.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Wisconsin is pretty good, but MSU actually outgained them||
...which is another way of saying that Wisconsin won by that margin, in large part, because of MSU mistakes. A win is still a win but it's not like they went in there are dominated all facets of the game.
So I'm not sure Wisconsin looks a whole lot different to me than they did last week: a good Big Ten West team (relatively speaking) that we play at home.
MSU looks like a 7/8-win team right now.

Minnesota is totally King Hippo. Big, slow and predictable, but every once in while they'll catch you on the chin, and it hurts.
|1 week 15 hours ago||That's high praise!||
Com Truise is the man.
Glad you dig the synthwave!

Hey OP: are you from or do you live in Indonesia? I ask because I used to live there.

He's been fine. Most of the problems in the secondary have been on the safeties.
|1 week 1 day ago||The main theory, as I||
The main theory, as I understand it, is that the Greeks made a battering ram with a horse face carved into it. I forget what the reason for thinking that is. But suffice to say, no one thinks they actually made a giant wooden gift horse full of soldiers.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well, if we are being||
Well, if we are being pedantic, the horse was filled with Mycenaean Greeks, possibly including some Spartans. And it's not really "history" but rather historical myth. It's highly unlikely that the event happened as described by Homer.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's insane. That school is||
It's insane. That school is crazy rich--they could top anyone's salary--and it's in one of the best recruiting areas in the US, and yet they hire Helton.
|1 week 2 days ago||On point||
Safety is definitely the biggest problem area for our defense, and if it doesn't improve quickly we are definitely going to have major problems with OSU (and Indiana). Certainly Thomas and Hill are athletic enough to improve but they are going to need serious coaching up if we want to win the conference, let alone make the CFP.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Colorado seems much improved.||
Colorado seems much improved. But then again, so did Northwestern last year. And remember we were also saying these kinds of things before the BYU game. I don't doubt that we'll win, but whether it's a comfortable win or an uncomfortable one is still in question. Really it's going to come down to whether we adjust and account for losing contain on QB delays, scrambles and edge run plays.

|2 weeks 5 days ago||You mean the one that's missing...||
....2 starting DLs and its All-American CB?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||By all means, be disappointed||
But some of the meltdown panic attacks over a game we currently lead by 30 are just a little OTT.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Relax, guys||
All that really mattes from this game is that we win and identify areas to work on before next week. This is a tuneup game.
That said, yeah...we are looking kind of flat right now.
