At first I was irked because the stakes for our game got a lot lower, but when you think about there aren't many things funnier than Ohio State blowing a home game in spectacularly embarrassing fashion.
|2 days 4 hours ago||M 20 OSU 13||
OSU tries to replicate what Indiana did but it doesn't work very well as M is better prepared and Elliott's head isn't really in the game. M offense does just enough and avoids turnovers.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Of course they do||
Defensively, PSU and MSU are similar. Very strong lines, ok back 7s. Offensively, MSU has a better line but PSU has the better QB and RB at least if Cook isn't close to 100%. This game should be a pretty even match.
If Cook is back to being Cook, MSU has the edge.

OSU sucks, but they're just like any other team. They want to win, and they don't and shouldn't give a damn about anyone else.
|3 days 21 hours ago||if OSU plays the way they did against MSU||
we'll destroy them. Their offense did absolutely nothing all day against a vulnerable MSU secondary, and their defense allowed a completely 1-dimensional MSU offense to run for 200 yards. What a punchless, lifeless, gutless, worthless performance by a bunch of chokers.
|4 days 1 hour ago||PSU has 119 yards on 3 plays||
and 46 yards on their other 38. They've basically had about a 10% success rate.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Penn State saw something||
and they got the block. It's been a different thing every time. Bad setup and punter brain fart against MSU, terrible tackling against Indiana, bad blocking and apparently bad setup against PSU.

White is a Sparty color. Our pants should go back to maize. But make it dull yellow, not shiny highlighter yellow.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Their name should be the Redwoods||
It fits their colors, mascot, and university seal, and it's appropriate to NorCal if not to Palo Alto itself. Robber Barons is funny, but I think most people wouldn't get the reference.
"Fighting Hawks" is so generic. UND should have gone with Roughriders or Flickertails or something else geographically appropriate.

PSU will exploit us in some of the same ways Indiana did, but they won't be able to do it consistently. 24-17 our way sounds right to me too.

Hoke was adept at technically answering questions while not really saying anything at all.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'd take the points||
OSU's speed demons should feast on MSU's shaky secondary, but I think Cook can keep Sparty in the game.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||this||
I might throw Texas and Missouri in there too.
If M comes out focused, this game shouldn't close. I'd expect something like 41-17. We dismantled some teams that are much better than Indiana, like BYU and Northwestern.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Sparty No!||
Ha ha ha ha ha. Threw it away to end the game.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||ugh Speight||
At least he didn't do that last week.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Rutgers would be pretty good||
if passing were illegal. Their run offense, run defense, and kick returns aren't bad.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||hey||
We didn't get a penalty for rushing the passer with intent to deceive.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Sypniewski wasn't going to||
Sypniewski wasn't going to make the tackle. The refs all being lobotmized have nothing to do with our special teams sucking.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||our special teams are not good||
They are singlehandedly keeping Rutgers in this game. If they were competent, the score would be 38-6.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||and who throws that pass?||
As well as overthrowing the open receiver at the back of the end zone on the next play? Tony Eason, most recently seen calling BS on fools from Chatsports.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||but they also put a scare into OSU||
If we come out focused, I think we'll beat Ind easily enough. If we come out flat like we did against Minnesota, we could be in trouble.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think it may have been that same weekend||
I was at an M basketball game and people were pointing at some guys sitting across the court from the student section. I look over: hmm, those guys look familiar. It was Jeter, Jason Giambi, Jorge Posada, Enrique Wilson, and Jeff Weaver. Naturally, the student section seemed most interested in making fun of Weaver.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||well||
This game feels sort of like the Akron game a couple years ago. It's a relief that we won, but it's worrisome to learn that the team's floor is a lot lower than we thought it was.
I think this game was an aberration, we were probably still a bit hung over from the MSU game. If we play like this again, we could conceivably lose to even Rutgers or Indiana, and would get housed by PSU or OSU. But I don't think we'll play this poorly again.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||yep||
Took about 30 seconds. They had a couple of near blocks in the back. It's cool to see a team pull a rugby play off.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||welp||
It looked to me like we just had a really, really, really off day as opposed to Minnesota being able to expose new weaknesses that no one else noticed.
But how did we end up with Morgan in single coverage on a RB downfield?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Minnesota tried to sneak it||
The pile never moved. DL got a good push.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||yay||
That was probably the ugliest win since...actually the Akron and UConn games weren't that long ago.
But boy was that ugly.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||stop?||
Please don't overturn this.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||luck, my ass||
it's just bad defense.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I hate this season SO much||
That was utterly inexcusable.
33 points to the worst offense in the conference.
