"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

No. MSU DL will pummel Hack worse than we did. I bet Cook will be back and they will have just as much success passing as we did. Also, its in EL I think...Nebraska was on the road.
|1 week 13 hours ago||I think we get shut out of||
I think we get shut out of the Rose Bowl. MSU in playoffs (i'm predicting they beat Iowa in BTCG) and Iowa in Rose Bowl.
|1 week 14 hours ago||This does suck but O'Connor||
This does suck but O'Connor isn't anywhere close to Cook - at least not yet. He is 6/11 for 83 yards with 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter. If Cook were to be playing this game it would be over for sure.

Depends on how much you saved up...I'd imagine the going rate is pretty steep right now.
|1 week 4 days ago||Historically sure, but I'm||
Historically sure, but I'm curious about during last 20 years or so, which would be the lives of most current recruits? Genuinely not sure how it would look then.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not saying minnesota||
I'm not saying minnesota deserved to win that game, but it is undeniable that we are fortunate to not have lost it given the last couple plays. I agree that we were unlucky to have the breaks go against us that got us to that point in the first place, but we could have very easily lost that game if they managed a couple plays better at the end or got an extra half yard on the throw that set it up.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||While we were very unlucky to||
While we were very unlucky to lose the MSU game, we were also pretty lucky to not lose to minnesota. So I think we probably sit at 2 losses pretty fairly all things considered.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||No no, it's in our interest||
No no, it's in our interest to say Stanford is just that good. Hence making nw look better and then making byu still look ok for losing to ucla. That's what I'm going with!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Out of curiousity, have you||
Out of curiousity, have you noticed any trends between first and second halves -particularly in the last 3 games?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||What about against Purdue?||
What about against Purdue? They put up 24 points against them...not exactly earth shattering. I also don't understand how you can extrapolate so much from the Rutgers game. Furthermore, it begs the question why Rutgers could have tied the game at the end despite msu displaying such a ruthlessly efficient offense.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Certainly you are not||
Certainly you are not equating Rutgers defense to ours are you? I think it's very fair to say that this will be their offenses biggest test too.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Ok, but are you seriously||
Ok, but are you seriously going to argue that the last 3 years msu wasn't the better team and simply won on waves of hate and emotion? Come on man, they have had multiple NFL players on those teams end up drafted, including potentially the best RB in the NFL now. Sure they may hate us on top of that but they won independent of that.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Ok, let's say they make that||
Ok, let's say they make that field goal. How many scores do you think their "dropped passes" caught them... I mean I think if your going to be paranoid, at least pump up Connor cook or msu as opposed to trying to belittle 3 straight shutouts suggesting they are partly products of luck. We also don't need to hold teams to 6 points...not like we are winning games 6-0 or something.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I mean they could neutralize||
I mean they could neutralize our run game and then put the ball in rudocks hands...if he has a Utah like performance I could see that tipping the scales. That seems to be a plausible scenario.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Well I doubt harbaugh is||
Well I doubt harbaugh is saying these things...and I mean all he had to do is remind them of the beatdowns we have received at the hands of msu recently and that should be enough...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||This is the MOST overrated||
This is the MOST overrated aspect to this game. I honestly find this line of thinking to be more frustrating than Sparty homers. I mean don't you think harbaugh and our players are going to be motivated...by getting smashed multiple times before by the same team? Don't you think our players see the opportunity here? The fact is...most of the time recently msu has been winning because they have outplayed and outcoached us. Period. I'm of the opinion that bulletin board material is not the reason why.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Could this just be to entice||
Could this just be to entice more bets on MSU? It doesn't Seem like anything has leaked yet about injuries.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Of all things that make you||
Of all things that make you nervous...it's the unit of our defense with all American in Lewis and one of the most dynamic athletes in the conference in peppers?? I'm curious what the overall sample size of passes that have been completed for legitimate gains because our corners "didn't find the ball" even is. I agree msu has the best receivers we have faced but we have the best defense they have faced too... Game on.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Yes...well those things||
Yes...well those things aren't really mutually exclusive. It's not like posts like this have an impact on the game.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I defintely agree with||
I defintely agree with that.just heard on the radio quotes from dantonios presser where he basically said he isn't going to say anything about injuries
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think this means||
I don't think this means anything. I suspect everyone who can physically play will play particularily on their O-Line. Their injured starters on that line are likely better than their backups.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||There are 3 current NFL||
There are 3 current NFL players from the Woodson draft...Obviously Peyton manning. Can anyone guess the third person?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||That's great and all but it's||
That's great and all but it's also a point of discussion that they consistently found themselves in need of making that type of play late in a game against Rutgers...
|6 weeks 5 days ago||They may not be able to do||
They may not be able to do that as well this year given that their corners aren't playing at NFL draft pick level.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I mean just because that's||
I mean just because that's how he answers press conference questions doesn't mean that's how he feels...and it doesn't mean that's the same message and intensity he has with the players about this game.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||To me the game boils down to||
To me the game boils down to jourdan Lewis vs. burbridge. Pro football focus has that as the #1 cb vs #2 wr in college football.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Does anyone have an updated||
Does anyone have an updated list of their injury situation? I just want to armed with facts when I interact with Sparty fans this week.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Article has a few other||
Article has a few other stats, nw qb was hurried/pressured on 17/30 drop backs And was only 3/10 on passes greater than 10 yards...wow.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Another important thing to||
Another important thing to remember is that it is still early enough for teams to be affected by playing michigan. In other words, if we agree that Michigan's D is very elite then every offense we have played will appear statistically worse because they had to play us for one of their 5 or 6 games thus far. Despite that, BYU is right around MSU level. That being said, I think that this is underrating MSU a reasonable amount. Nevertheless, Its nice to be on the right of the numbers.
