I hate Sparty, but I'm one of the few here who would rather they beat Alabama. I live in SEC country, and I pull for the big ten, especially against the SEC.

Interesting to see the Michigan fan base defend the honor of ohio state's best player ever. I wonder if there's any backstory. Did Archie tweet something that annoyed cook?

I've always wondered if it's possible for boosters to simply pay all their under-the-table money to grads after they graduate. Do it enough and it would be a real incentive for recruits to see this sort of thing. But it doesn't seem to pass the smell test. Frankly, osu's system appears to be great. Who would object to getting these kids into well-paying jobs after they graduate?

Tacking another ten years reminds me of Ernie Harwell. I may have the facts iffy, but I seem to recall that when Harwell was in his mid 90s calling tigers games he signed a contract extension for ten years.

Prytania bar is an official mgoblue spot. Cooter brown's is another. But there aren't many sports bars in the quarter. Deuce mccallisters, jimanji, and a few others will have it but you might not get audio.

Blue fan writing from Nola. Prytania Bar is the spot. Otherwise Cooter Browns. There are usually Big Ten fans at Tracey's, too. If you're looking for NFL action on Sunday, Manning's has all the games. In the Quarter check out Jimanji. Cooters is great for NFL also.

Seemed like they left the first string teams in for too long, and were passing late despite being up big. I hate to be that guy but it seems a bit tacky. Also, I'd like to see some second stringers get some work in too.

Brian, thanks for posting the slow motion video. It is a lot easier to see what is happening in slo mo, and I hope you do this for all your posts going forward.

I think it's hilarious when fans warn other fans not to look past the next opponent. It's one thing for the actual players to not overlook the next opponent (which is a reasonable concern), but it really doesn't matter if a fan overlooks the next opponent. It shows the way some fans internalize their team's performance and fool themselves into thinking that their own preparation for the game has an effect on the actual game.

Nothing wrong with tooting your own horn around here, depending on which horn, I guess. Will you post some links to your articles?

Great stuff good to see him turning two stars into NFL material. Our future is bright.

I hate that Michigan fans boo players. Michigan fans didn't used to do that crap. Even during down seasons. A tailored boo directed at coaching decisions may be fine, but players deserve encouragement during tough moments. I looked down on U Texas fans when I went to undergrad there, because they boos players constantly (and hurled all sorts of abuse). But I've come to realize we are no better.

Exactly. This was no meltdown. Damn good attempt to rally back. It fell short. I think we are well positioned for the next two games.

No meltdown. I thought they did an excellent job charging back. That could easily have been a win. Not a meltdown; a rally that didn't quite make it all the way back.

I have this sneaky suspicion that Auburn and Southern Miss are going to have great seasons. Will be sort of weird to root for them, and see Countess and Hayes in southern uniforms.
