There were quite a few instances at the game of me grabbing my knees and an "I cant do this"
|18 weeks 4 days ago||If we lose to both of those||
If we lose to both of those teams, I'll be shocked. That would say more about us than a loss to state. I fully expect this team to regroup.
The 2010 psu game was definitely the turning point, but that team had just come off of two losses that they didn't really have much of a shot in (save some late game throws by Forcier vs Iowa). I would say that these next 3 weeks are the proverbial Penn State 2010 for this team. They are expected to win and they should win against lesser opponents and failing to do so would certainly fuel the offseason chatter about the staff.

Well they're 7-1 with a great defense. I don't see how that doesn't make them good. When you're starting from the 50 most of the time like they did yesterday, you're going to score points.
Comparing scores is irrelevant. We scored 59 on CMU and 28 on Akron but CMU is better than Akron. It's not so black and white

MSU is a good team. I'll hold my judgment til the end of the season. We still have 3 very winnable games on the schedule leading to osu. 9-3 is not so unrealistic and I think everyone would have been good with that record coming into this year.

Bill Murray used the term "Cinderella Story" in Caddyshack to refer to an underdog winning. So underdogs are Cinderella. Cinderella went to the ball also known as a dance. Hence, the big dance.

Provided Michigan beats Kansas and Gulf Coast beats Florida, on a scale of 1-10 how crushed would you be if they beat Michigan? Gotta admit it'd be fun to see this team in the final four, no matter how big the dong punch.

You might want to rethink that last sentence
|51 weeks 2 days ago||I respect him for saying||
I respect him for saying that. Last year was kind of a perfect storm for a tourney loss. Quality wins all year, a B1G share, being almost basket away from a sweet 16 the year before, and an overrated seed that we didn't deserve. I can't really blame them for taking a MAC team lightly. Tourney experience will help the team this year since Trey and Tim and co. will have the idea of how easy it is to go home fresh in their minds.

Can we get a travel call? Evans is dragging his pivot foot. Real bad on the three and the play after.

Another rule: Widen the hoop 3-4 inches in college basketball.
Better rule: add trampolines to college basketball

Not a specific sports-instance for one, but everything this symbolized and reflecting on it now is pretty cool.

I like to remember the Wisconsin game a few years back--the infamous "backboard game." The season seemed lost and everything hopeless, but everyone remembers that season for the tournament (The Eulogy of Bruce Pearl and KICK IT OUT TO STU, DARIUS!). The season's not over and there's still a lot of basketball to be played. Beilein has seen low points in a season and has seen his teams recover well.

1.) I think there are certain SEC programs that 'dirty' recruit players (e.g. "friendly" coeds and the like), but would guess that the number of SEC schools offering cash to players is pretty low and not much above average compared to the rest of the country.
2.)If there was more Ben Franklin handshakes, then I think more people would come forward than just the "he said, she said" stories that are usually passed down through the grapevine. Just one man's opinion

Good teams just find a way to get dirty and outgrit their opponents on the road.
Wait, they're playing Penn State?

Smart 18-year-old. Tweets can get to a kid. Smotrycz handled it pretty well last year, too. It's a lot of pressure for a kid.

Apparently Dawson may have thrown a punch against Purdue. Hard to tell from the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo-Xtlhhre0&feature=player_embedded
Regardless, fun to read Sparty's justification of it. One guy said that (if it was a punch), it was deserved because of the way the Purdue player played dirty the moment before and Dawson was just doing what anyone would do. Deja Vu, eh?

If confirmed, it would make for a pretty pessimistic offseason for MSU. Please be true.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Criticizing the decision is||
Criticizing the decision is fine (i.e. USC's situation, coach, what would appeal to him about playing there, etc.), but too often people on this site and elsewhere get so caught up in it that they resort to namecalling, putdowns, or wild speculations (e.g. "Michigan is a much better fit for him, School X must be paying him. School X is a bunch of cheaters).
In the end, you may disagree with the presumed reasons that a recruit picked a school, but only the kid and his family know the real reasons and made the decision they felt was best for them. Even if you don't think it was the best for them, you have to respect the decision.
