just to see us irked by the W for our heated rival.

Iced Tea and Lemonade as I drink this.
The man led a great life. Here's to a hole-in-one on the big course in the sky tonight for him.

I think fans will be disappointed.

We have to make the B1G Championship game (plus the subsequent bowl) to overcome the four games played in 2016 obstacle. The sixth year issue will still have to be overcome.
|6 days 16 min ago||I read the following to mean||
that B1G championship and playoff/bowl games count.
It won't be the four games that prevent a 6th year if we make the B1G Championship game. (But the 6th year issue will still have to be overcome.)
4/13 (reg seas + bowl) = 30.8% but
12.8.4 Hardship Waiver. A student-athlete may be granted an additional year of competition by the conference or the Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement for reasons of "hardship." Hardship is defined as an incapacity resulting from an injury or illness that has occurred under all of the following conditions: (Revised: 1/10/92 effective 8/1/92, 1/14/97, 8/1/97, 4/26/01 effective 8/1/01, 11/1/01, 4/3/02, 8/8/02, 3/10/04, 5/11/05, 9/18/07, 11/1/07 effective 8/1/08, 4/24/08, 7/31/14)
(a) The incapacitating injury or illness occurs in one of the four seasons of intercollegiate competition at any two-year or four-year collegiate institutions or occurs after the first day of classes in the student-athlete's senior year in high school;
(b) The injury or illness occurs prior to the first competition of the second half of the playing season that concludes with the NCAA championship in that sport (see Bylaw 188.8.131.52.4) and results in incapacity to compete for the remainder of that playing season;
(c) In team sports, the injury or illness occurs when the student-athlete has not participated in more than three contests or dates of competition (whichever is applicable to that sport) or 30 percent (whichever number is greater) of the institution's scheduled or completed contests or dates of competition in his or her sport. Only scheduled or completed competition against outside participants during the playing season that concludes with the NCAA championship, or, if so designated, during the official NCAA championship playing season in that sport (e.g., spring baseball, fall soccer), shall be countable under this limitation in calculating both the number of contests or dates of competition in which the student-athlete has participated and the number of scheduled or completed contests or dates of competition during that season in the sport. Dates of competition that are exempted (e.g., alumni contests, foreign team in the United States) from the maximum permissible number of contests or dates of competition shall count toward the number of contests or dates in which the student-athlete has participated and the number of scheduled or completed contests or dates of competition in the season, except for scrimmages and exhibition contests that are specifically identified as such in the sport's Bylaw 17 playing and practice season regulations. Scrimmages and exhibition contests that are not exempted from the maximum permissible number of contests or dates of competition may be excluded from the calculation only if they are identified as such in the sport's Bylaw 17 playing and practice season regulations; and
|6 days 23 min ago||The PSU kicker hit Lewis, not Clark.||
It was the Turf Monster that got Clark.
|6 days 26 min ago||We could also avoid all practice injuries||
by not practicing. Let's do that.
|6 days 28 min ago||If we make the B1G championship game||
the 4 games played this year will be 28.7% of the season (4/14), so the four games won't prevent him from coming back. The sixth year issue, however, will still need to be overcome.
I heard Clark was playing golf w/ Ed Davis a few years ago.
|6 days 33 min ago||"Could have happened in practice"||
Bingo. Should Harbaugh hold players out of practice?
|6 days 1 hour ago||Barkley is turrible||
|6 days 1 hour ago||I thought it strange that the announcers||
missed the whole point of the timeout Harbaugh took on PSU's 4th down at the Michigan 49 w/ 17 seconds left.
If Michigan lets the clock run, PSU gets a free Hail Mary shot to end the half.
Genius Franklin succombed to Harbaugh and punted it away harmlessly. If I was down 28-0, I would throw a hail mary, which if unsuccessful, would likely leave Michigan in the same position w/ maybe ~7 seconds left. Let's see, go into halftime down 28-0 for sure, or take some small probability of going in 28-7 w/ the downside being the same small probability of going in down 35-0.
I think the increased variance w/ the Hail Marys would have increased PSU's (albeit small) chance of winning.
|6 days 1 hour ago||But I don't think so||
|6 days 1 hour ago||Which can be matched by tOSU||
It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Urbz use the situation to get himself a big raise.

|6 days 11 hours ago||Haha||
A good GameDay sign for Mich @ MSU would express concern for the couches' safety.
|6 days 11 hours ago||And the BTN show appeared to have||
exactly ZERO fans in the background.
MSU give BTN Tailgate the #Disrespekt treatment.

But Peppers will be held to under 200 yds passing.

had something to do with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of JoePa's first game earlier this month.

Joe Paterno's 50th anniversary at one of their prior games. Let them collectively hear what we think about that.

Harbaugh has called Peppers an extremely quick learner; show him something once, he's good to go.
Part of being a great athlete is the intuitive recognition of the easiest/most efficient way to make a play.
Of course, this may have a lot to do with why Harbaugh can ask Peppers to do so many things without sacrificing excellence at his core position.

you probably figure "man, we'll be good in a year or two anyway".
I've never heard (*)(*) called 'rosters'.
