You may be right that he was close but just wasn't ready to go, but if the injury was enough to keep him out of arguably the biggest game of his career, then he might not have been as close as you think.
|1 day 15 hours ago||emotion||
While I generally agree with your on this, there are a few scenerios in which the emotion element could swing in favor of PSU. For example:
-Rather than playing with sky high emotion, MSU could come out a bit flat after a hugely emotional win in Columbus.
-Or, MSU could come out with TOO MUCH emotion, causing them to lose fundamentals, take stupid personal foul penalties, etc.
-Or, perhaps, for a crop of seniors who have lived through a really difficult and emotional time at PSU, PSU is the one that comes out on fire.
I do think that you are likely right that MSU does have the emotional edge, but I am just pointing out that with anything so inherently unquantifiable and "feelingsball-ish", you just never know.

Go blue! Beat Ohio State!

And, Peppers is a freshman.

I know that it won't happen, but your question didn't limit the answer to games that might happen.
I really want to see us line up against Sparty with some non-Big10 refs. Sparty "won" on a bad combo of poor officiating (that did impact the outcome) and a total fluke play. I would like to see newly improved Rudock and company hang 50 on those bastards.

That would be an epic dose of karma. Throw in a few BS calls or non-calls against MSU for good measure.

A few points in response:
1. The total yardage numbers aren't really that far off. 479 vs. 402 isn't that huge - both games were shoot-outs on offense. Also, keep in mind that Michigan had several drives in which their offense scored in a minute or so of total time, which results in more possessions over the course of the game and hence, somewhat inflated yardage totals.
2. As you noted, sure, Indiana moved the ball well, but we were able to get a whole bunch of red zone stops. I, for one, do not care how long a drive is if it doesn't result in a touchdown.
3. This was our first game adjusting to the loss of arguable our best DL performer, and one who would have been critical to stopping precisely the type of offense that Indiana runs.
4. In the end, we played our worst defensive game of the season, and came away with a win. I expect that Harbaugh, Baxter and Durkin will have the defense and special teams working their collective asses off this week to correct whatever went wrong this past week.

You mean steroids and vitamins.

Steak, not steam.

Long, long week at work. Looking forward to a glass or so or red wine with steam for dinner. Estancia Cabernet.

Is there really any age at which news relating to a random 16 year old boy is better than an orgasm.

Did I sleep all the way through Friday?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
That's a lot of repressed anger and hate that you have built up against a guy I expect that you never met.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Eh||
It's ok. Not great but better than anything else that is on from 9-12 on a Saturday. It's better when we are relevant. Had we won MSU, we would he involved in a lot more of these CFP discussions.

I think you may have to be on the team to get one of those. Just guessing though, but I do know that other teams do stuff like that.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I knew it||
When I read that comment, my first thought was "how long until his dudeness responds"! Good stuff.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Michigan||
So, if this game goes for, say, another 4 hours (as it seems like it will), what channel will we be bumped to? Or, would they hold off on our kickoff?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Those questions||
Were actually better than what we see asked by reporters at most Michigan press conferences.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Let me add||
That I will divert the whole discussion by blaming it on RichRod, his defensive recruiting and his lack of fit.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||WOW||
There is so much win in this post. First of all, those ribs look INSANE! My wife and kids bought me a smoker for father's day this year (Weber, 22 inch), so I have become obsessed with new smoker recipes. This one is the best I have ever seen.
Also, those handles?! Are they only available for the Egg, or can I get something equivalent for my Weber?

My wife and I do media blackout every weekend for Michigan games new Dvr and watch when the kids to go sleep. Here are some tips:
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you, thank you||
Thanks. I am doing the DVR / complete media blackout thing today, and would have been upset if I got home and the game didn't record.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Drinking||
I just stopped off on the way home and picked up a bottle of Cabernet. Red Diamond (which sells for only 10.99 for those looking for a fairly cheep but delicious Cabernet).
|7 weeks 6 days ago||new york||
Same for NY (for Verizon Fios). Our game is on 85 (SD) and 585 (HD), with the NW game being bumped to the alternate BTN channel. Go Blue!

I remember the recent quotes by the M players about not even knowing about media day, and about how Harbaugh likes to keep them guessing. The article that I was talking about was before he became our coach. Here it is:
For those who have not read it, and want even more reason to be hyped about our coach, it is a great read.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||WTF?!?!||
Putting aside that this is the day of the Big Ten Championship Game, in which we will be representing our half of the conference after beating OSU, the OSU game is and should always be the last game of the regular season.
|8 weeks 15 hours ago||Serious Question||
For the OP: Why is this not good? If there is any team and coaching staff that would thrive on the chaos of a last-minute relocation, it would be us. Wasn't there an article written about Harbaugh on ESPN (too lazy too look, but I remember during the great CC of 2015 that it was circulated and made us all want Harbaugh even more) that specifically discussed that Harbaugh thrives on chaos?
