|1 day 17 hours ago||Leach says that you have to||
Leach says that you have to be smart enough to call heads or tails - as in you need no brain. However, you also have to be smart enough not to call "kick off," because if you do you will likely end up kicking off at the start of both halves. You must call "defer" if you want to start on defense.

As a person with my Bachelor's degree from UofM I will say that where you went to school (or even if you didn't go to college at all) does not lock you into any position as a fan. You can be a quality fan or a crappy fan either way.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I unfortunately took a stroll||
I unfortunately took a stroll to RCMB and there is plenty of talk that UofM will fall off the face of the earth next year.
They also have a thread about UofM fans being "angry" that MSU is down as it will take away from their victory.
Hey Sparties, I am thrilled that you are 2-5 and I will be more thrilled when you fall to 2-6. You can't count your FCS win over "Furman" so in the calendar year of 2016, starting with Alabama's beatdown 38-0, you guys are 1-6 with your only win over a 2-5 Notre Dame team.

Upsets happen, so keep you never know. However, ESPN says UofM has a 96% chance of winning.
Good post on a rivals board.

+1 to you. All Michigan fans must yell DOOOOOOM anytime he touches the ball.
|4 days 3 hours ago||No. OSU can still make the||
OSU can still make the playoffs by winning out and winning the BigTen title. They are still playing for everything.
We pretty much have to win the OSU game no matter what. It is unlikely that the playoff committee will select us at 11-1 -- especially if there are other conference champions with a loss. We always needed to beat them - if anything, it makes us realize it can be done since a team we thrashed 49-10 just beat them.
|4 days 7 hours ago||State fans at work are||
State fans at work are stressing out, because they feel as if their reign of terror is over.
I made a bet with a coworker that MSU would have at least 2 losses by the UofM game - all he has to do is wear a Michigan shirt to work and he hasn't paid up yet.

It was Matt Millen. He said OSU's secondary was one of the best in the nation.

Hate Rutgers on the field, but respect our shared rivalry and tradition.

The Spartans had a backwards anti-intellectual culture where there were more slaves than citizens and boys had to kill a slave to become a man.
Mark San Antonio is a douche for saying he greatly admires all facets of Spartan life.

Where does Peppers fit best in the NFL?
I would have to say Peppers fits best as a rookie in the 2019-2020 season after having earned his degree and a master's degree as well. You can't put a price on education these days, especially with all of the on the field injuries in the NFL.

I am a bit surprised that Mike San Antonio has gotten so full of himself. Printing up posters of all his victories over UM and hanging them up in the football building lobby, grafting our slogan "Those who stay are already champions," printing up all of the back to back championship crap, and of course his players tweeting out that they will lock UofM up in their stadium for 60 minutes...
Pride comes before the fall...

I think Fleck has done a great job, but WMU wasn't at the bottom of FBS before Fleck got there, they were a middle level MAC team.
In the five years prior to Fleck WMU went: 9-4, 5-7, 6-6, 7-6, 4-8.
With 3 straight best in the MAC recruiting classes Fleck made WMU go: 1-11, 8-5, 8-5, and thus far 6-0.
He is an elite recruiter and motivator. I am not sure he is an elite Xs and Os guy though.

Likely to have no real problems...but it is quite possible there will be issues.
I went in 2011 and got called a "gay fa--ot" for simply minding my own business as I walked to the stadium by a pack of college kids who got briefly in my face for a second.
In the stadium I heard another homophobic slur, F-bombs, and a man pleading to "tear that fu--ers head off" when Denard took one of many cheap shots.
I was sitting next to a man who identified himself as a professor at MSU who personally apologized for the dirty play and foul mouths.

It seems like my neighbor wanted Harbaugh to call a time out and then send this message over to Ash under a white flag of truce:
Your honorable Ash,
Your Obedient Servant,
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I would argue from a game||
I would argue from a game standpoint, we needed to do it.
You would sit back as a head coach and let Rutgers slam 8 guys into 4 or 5 of our guys on right side of our line every time we kicked?!
With some of their guys getting through, our guys double teamed, on slippery grass where injuries can happen...and a possible blocked kick that could get returned.
All you had to do was run a trick play up the gut to keep them honest...but we shouldn't because of feelings and/or politeness?
If they are still playing to block kicks on the point afters, why shouldn't we keep playing on the point afters?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Peppers said Harbaugh went||
Peppers said Harbaugh went for 2 last year, because Rutgers players were talking trash in the tunnel going into halftime despite being down 19 and then he went "livid" in the lockerroom.

SEC doesn't like to have too many games north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Pride comes before the fall.||
Pride comes before the fall. It was awful prideful to print up all of that "The road begins here for Back to Back Championship" crap that Dantonio did. How is that back to back championship drive coming along at 0-2 in conference play?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||We must improve a lot before||
We must improve a lot before the OSU game, but we more than doubled Wisconsin in both yards and first downs.
If Allen would have been on, we could have been up 16-0 when Wisconsin scored.

My kingdom for a field goal!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||No disrespect intended||
No disrespect intended towards Wisconsin, but they didn't exactly thrash MSU. MSU in fact outgained Wisconsin in yards.
Wisconsin returned a fumble more than 50 yards for a TD when MSU appeared to be on a scoring drive for at least a FG. Then a dropped punt put Wisconsin at the 7 yard line. Take away those two plays and that final MSU drive that stalled inside the redzone could have been looking to tie the game.
Yes, Wisconsin won fair and square...but the stats indicate that it wasn't a "thrashing."
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||Ummm, Wisconsin did in fact||
Ummm, Wisconsin did in fact attempt a field goal vs MSU.
Endicott attempted 1 field goal from 41 yards and made it. He was 3 of 4 on extra points.

Does out-hitting us mean that they out-physicaled us? If so, sounds like someone was out-coached to lose 51-14 despite out-hitting the opponent.
