I'm always excited and engaged at the beginning of the season because hope springs eternal and it's fascinating seeing what we got for Christmas each fall in terms of player development. I read everything and watch everything. Then I kind of make an assessment based on what I see through the first five games or so and decide how much of a life investment I'm going to make for the rest of the season. Like 2011, I was glued to the TV for every game and was all over MGoBlog and other sites. Last season, I pretty much checked out after Penn State--I still watched most of the games, but with little emotion and just logged into MGoBlog for a few minutes in the aftermath to bitch about the futility.

Maybe we should hire an anthropologist as the next head football coach?

I had an engagement that my wife had planned at 6:30, so I had to stop watching the game right after Utah went up 20-10. In years past, I would've been a mess pulling myself away early, rudely checking my phone every two minutes and trying to sneak away for a TV. I just didn't care this time (or since UConn last year, really). Checked in at 7:30 to see that we'd lost, and just shrugged and went back to conversation.
Used to feel like Christmas every fall Saturday . . .

It's hard to admit that MSU has surpassed us in terms of football success. I know. But MSU has sustained a 71% winning percentage for six years. Six years is a sustained stretch. Over that period, their average season has been 10-4. Over the same period, our winning percentage is 54% and average record is 7-6. Six years.

Wow, you were one of the last few loyalists. It's hard to see your faith broken such. Who's left on the Hoke wagon? Cold War? Space Coyote?

It's not the deficit that's discouraging. It's how completely impotent the offense looks. Feels like last season when you just knew in your soul that there was no way the offense was going to mount a comeback.
