Or maybe they agree. I can't remember, it's been too long since I've seen that show. But Milwaukee is the home of Lenny and Squiggy, so it can't be too bad.

I got it. If a program has boosters who don't care about $15M buyouts, you wonder what else they don't care about. That's a lot of cash floating around.

of hearing Beth Mowins calling a Michigan game with Jake Rudock at QB is on life support.

It was raining pretty hard.
RE: what are thoooose? Brian, you sounded just like my 11 year old son and his baseball team, so mission accomplished.

The thing that's getting overlooked regarding the MSU-OSU game is that Ohio State ran only 45 offensive plays. His 12 carries over 45 plays equates to 16 over 60 or 20 over 75. I don't think it's abnormal for Elliott to get slightly more than 25% of the plays called for him. It's just that OSU's offense could not stay on the field. Maybe they should have tried some pace or something to get more plays in (it's usually said the better team has the advantage when more plays are run.)
Sports Illustrated had a story on Elliott recently. They mentioned that Iowa, YES IOWA!, tried negative recruiting against OSU by saying Urban's never had a 1000 yard back, etc. etc. Sure, go to Iowa instead and have your knees shattered and every connective tissue in your body blown apart.
Elliott has been reciting that, "Heisman's are won in November" line over and over, so for him to come up short in 1 of his 2 big November games is crushing to him. That he only got to carry the ball 12 times further upsets him. Tough luck, kid.
The other thing to mention is the weather. They only tried 1 deep ball all game that I saw and just missed it. But with the way the rain was coming down, does Urban just want to give up downs to MSU by heaving the ball into that rainstorm? I'm not defending Urban, I'm just pointing out that MSU got incredibly lucky that the conditions were what they were. Rain taking away a downfield passing attack doesn't hurt MSU who didn't have a downfield passing attack without Cook. What's surprising is that OSU's defense didn't really tighten up against the run, or maybe they're just not that good against a power rushing attack. I saw Bosa, who is a legitimate top-10/top-5 NFL draft pick get dragged down the field for 2-3 yards at a time. He's incredibly quick to the QB, but the MSU running backs were not going down easily against him.
|1 day 14 hours ago||That play||
In my senior year of high school, my team made it to the State Semifinals. We had a dominating defense - Carruthers went to FSU, we had a Brandstatter on the team, several guys go on to college football, and no one could score on us. So we blocked not one, but two punts, only to see both of them recovered by the opposition who advanced the ball for first downs. We ended up losing 6-3.
I think the Michigan punt crossed the line and bounced back, but it wasn't clear from the angle they showed.

They show a lot of music stuff. This appears to be an attempt to diversify their lineup.
I recently discovered the "ONE World Sports" channel. They show everything but the major US sports. They've got Russian hockey, Chinese basketball, ping pong, soccer, badminton, and cricket. The Chinese basketball was hilarious. They get 1 or 2 non-chinese players per team. Those guys are US players who go for 30+ points and dominate the action. I half seriously told my son I'm moving to China to become a pro basketball player. The chinese guys were blowing layups left and right and making turnovers on nearly every possession.

That the PSU game preceded Thanksgiving instead of the Indiana game. The UFRs will be done in half the time as the IU game.

I nearly went insane listening to my neighbor's dog barking. I did a little research and found this item on the web:
It's got a little microphone in it, and supposedly when it records a dog's bark, it emits an ultrasonic ping that the dogs don't like. They, supposedly, learn to stop barking. My question for the board is this, do they make a similar product to quiet Spartan fans?

My brother sent me a video of red panda performing at a recent women's game, I think. Amazing. She flicks the bowls onto plates on her head while unicycling on a really tall unicycle.
More info in case you're interested: http://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2014/10/1/6882671/the-red-panda-acrobat-i...
The video my brother sent is her doing the trick at 35-40 seconds in the video in the sbnation story. Apparently, she didn't retire.

and wins the game convincingly as a result. We're all happy, but in the back of our minds we're thinking, "couldn't we save one or two of those turnovers for next week?"

|4 days 18 hours ago||How about this?||
On the last play of the game, MSU is down by 5 points. They've got the ball at mid-field. Buckeye fans are already celebrating in the stands. Cook rolls out, fires the Hail Mary and connects. After he throws the ball, Bosa launches himself at Cook drawing the questionable targetting foul. Bosa is held out of the first half of the Michigan game. When they get Cook to the sideline, even though he's fine and has no concussion, he fails the concussion test by not being able to add 2 and 2. STAEE, thinking their Hail Mary victory sets them up for the East Division title comes back to earth when Cook is held out of the PSU game. PSU wins, we run up an early first half lead sans Bosa and pick off Barrett thrice in the second half as OSU tries to pass their way back. Michigan wins the division outright.

Hackenburg should be the #1 rated QB. He's awesome. I've never seen him throw 4 INTs in a game. His every pore exudes leadership, intangibles, and grit. Toughness is his middle name. What a rocket of an arm.

root for West Virginia or Toledo.

NO RELIGION! I know, I know, but after particularly tough losses I'll go to Church. It's a good reminder that there are more important things in this world. Sometimes that helps.

Maybe it's because they started the season 0-6 ATS? I mean, I don't even know where to begin with this quote. Would you hire a guy like that? Whaah, whaah, nobody respects us! I want my blankie! I mean, seriously, Cook, get over yourself already. It's pathological. This coming from their starting QB. The dizrezpect angle has fully infiltrated and taken over their program. I wouldn't want to be associated with that program if that's what they have to do to motivate themselves.
