We have a winner!
Well put, blueblueblue.
|1 week 2 days ago||That's not grounded in reality...||
Here's the bottom line on that game: 1 of the pass interferences was absolutely correct; the 1 defensive holding was absolutely correct; 1 of the pass interferences was a 50/50 call; and 2 of them were absolutely poor calls - and there isn't a lot of wiggle room on that. The announcers (ND's crew) saw/said it, Mike Perreira tweeted about it, analysts commented on it ex post facto - and they were all in agreement - there were some really bad calls against MSU that day...It is what it is, and what it is in this case, is that MSU was a bad call (or suspect play call on the wr reverse toss) away from probably playing for a national title...
Don't worry, you won't self-immolate if you admit it...
|1 week 2 days ago||Why is that funny?||
It very well may be true.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm guessing that moral "high ground"||
Was more than ceded following the Final Four Hoops run last year...
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||The real kicker...||
is that, according to the NCAA Rulebook , you can make a pretty strong argument, that by virtue of Braxton MIller leaving the team area, and joining into the fracas, and due to the fact that he wasn't sanctioned in the game itself, he should have received further punishment.
Bottom line, for a league that LOVES to trumpet how different it is from the other BCS Conferences (particularly the SEC) Delany and company have really dropped the ball on this one...And whenyou factor in the Tat 5...Well, best case it looks sketchy, worst case, abjectly hypocritical.

and not assuming that that man is yelling, "There's always money in the banana stand!!!"
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Perhaps not a popular assertion around here...||
But today's game had the feel of MSU going 2-0 against us in 2013. You could see it in Nebraska's defensive approach, and perhaps as importantly, you could see it in Devin Gardner's eyes. At the slightest appearance of pressure, his vision focused immediately and myopically on his immediate vicinity (as in, no longer down field). That was a gun-shy quarterback out there today, and frankly, I'm not altogether sure I blame him.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I don't understand where this notion that...||
what Lewan did wasn't as bad (simply in terms of the helmet twist) as Gholston's. I've watched both about a half dozen times now, and frankly, I think both are equally reprehensible and "violent".
I'm also part of the crowd that doesn't think he should be suspended for that action, even when taken within the larger context of what was a pretty douchey game from Lewan. I also find it absolutely laughable that some morons on here would actually defend his actions by citing the 2011 game. Seriously? If that was the case, or a legitimate rationale at all (it isn't), then last year was the occasion to "make your statement"...You know, when the guy that perpetrated most of the questionable 2011 plays from MSU was still on the god damn field!!! What a joke.
There's no question that Lewan has a very suspect reputation around the conference, and that he loves to get his paws inside the face masks of opposing d-linemen...There's also some pretty good youtube footage floating around the internets, with him engaging in a few other suspect activities (including a chest stomp against IU) that I'm surprised didn't garner more attention.

In that ND game, at least 3 of the PI calls against MSU were in fact, terrible calls.
|8 weeks 8 hours ago||I'm guessing he's just thankful...||
That both of his eyes are still functioning...
And depressed that somebody still recognized him after his haircut...

MSU said no. Now we'll just have to wait and see if Dantonio calls them chickens...

Wolvin is right. Cole is an MSU lean presently. As more than a few folks have pointed out though, it's a long way to February of 2015...

|39 weeks 4 days ago||Threads like these are lovely attempts||
to rationalize a suspect result. Bottom line, this loss has less to do with legitmizing a potential conditioning concern; and more to do with the fact that the likelihood of seeing a similarly situated/talented team in round 2, and a 1 seed directly after that, just increased dramatically.

|42 weeks 5 days ago||To be honest,||
I think they're essentially right. My initial reaction was similar to Vitale's...But later in the broadcast, ESPN put both "groinings" on back to back; and in my opinion - Zeller was executing a little gamesmanship 101.
Just too much evidence works against Zeller...His hand is on the inside of Nix', as such, if Nix had originated the force, Zeller's hand/arm wouldn't follow it to the target, certainly not simultaneously. And check our Nix' hand/arm, it's completely limp at the onset, and the way the wrist bends initially suggests that it's being pulled, imo. And while some folks like to compliment the "acting job" Zeller executed, ESPN had a great baseline look (behind the play) and the shocked look Nix gives TV Teddy right after it happened, it was all, "What the hell is this moron trying to pull!"
The most interesting aspect, imo, is that I was convinced that the first incident was simply a basketball play, wrong place wrong time...Now I'm less certain.

Actually they shot below their season % from 3...Well below their B10 %.

Yeah...I'd submit that the blame probably doesn't lie there...Unless that January 16th loss is carrying some major hangover...

I've been battling a severe George Brett'esque case of hem...Wait, oh that's what you meant...
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Gonna be an interesting campaign...||
I wanna get way out on the limb and pick Purdue to represent the Leader's Division in the BTTG...But I'm not sure I can get there. Regardless, the Badgers are eminently beatable in 2012, as their Terrapin free agent can't hold their Wolfpack free agent's jock.

Can we just leave Sandusky and all that mess out of this!!! Enough is enough!
Hi OH!!! Tickets are still available for the Sunday matinee!

" And even the Spartans have seen big chunks of their coaching staff leave—it's one reason MSU hasn't been able to get a high profile instate guy without huge grade question marks since Hoke arrived."
Kind of an odd and essentially inaccurate comment.
