"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Purdue plays like crap on the road (0-5) and yet they played MSU down to the wire in East Lansing. Rutgers plays like crap at home (2-4, with wins over Norfolk State and Kansas) and yet they played MSU down to the wire.
I am not saying Penn State will play MSU close, just that worse teams have done it, MOST BigTen teams have done it (5 of 7 this year) and so Penn State has a realistic chance of doing it.

Purdue is 2-9 with one win over Indiana State. Rutgers is 4-7. If they can take MSU down to the wire, why can't Penn State possibly do it? Hackenberg may play.
|4 days 8 hours ago||In all seriousness, why is||
In all seriousness, why is everyone at my work writing off Penn State?
MSU has went down to the wire in 5 of their 7 BigTen games this season. Penn State is certainly better than Rutgers and Purdue who both took MSU down to the wire.
I say there is a decent chance Penn State takes MSU down to the wire and if that happens all Penn State needs is a lucky bounce.

5 of MSU's 7 BigTen games have gone down to the wire. Penn State is better than Purdue and Rutgers who went down to the wire with MSU.
MSU is a heavy favorite to win and with good reason, but there is a reasonable chance it goes down to the wire and if it does...all Penn State needs is a lucky bounce.

Is there another angle...I watched that play live and I thought the other angle show the ball move around in his hands when he hit the ground.

Jokes on the NCAA? "Dakota" is a tribe of the Sioux Confederation.
They just changed their name essentially from the 'North Sioux Fighting Sioux' to the 'North Sioux Fighting Hawks.'

Ummm, not sure that would be effective with Spartys...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great write up, but Armstrong||
Great write up, but Armstrong is the QB. The WR was Brandon Reilly.
Another thing to note is that the MSU DB clearly had his hand on Reilly and was trying to keep his inside position, which naturally forces him out of bounds.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||#1. MSU has played extremely||
#1. MSU has played extremely aggressive in their secondary for years with their hands on WRs a lot. If you live by that then you die by that too. The MSU CB had his hand pushing on the WR and there is no doubt about that...the MSU BS whines about the MSU DB having his head looking back has nothing to do with whether or not he made contact that directed the WR out of bounds.
#2. I know a son of a former BigTen head ref and word is Dantonio and Narduzzi are the two biggest D-Bags that whine and moan about every call and don't even understand how the ref procedure for calling a penalty works. They will bring up calls from years ago when they whine. The will threaten head refs with their job for not overturning a call that they can't overturn as they did not see the specific action area in question.
#3. I hope MSU goes to the ACC...what would you D-Bags do with your hockey team?

I think you are missing the fact that they wrote the article in Spartan dialect. Look at the whole sentence that you are referencing: "STAEE can still win the BigTen Eest."

Anyone else see Arkansas beat Ole Miss in OT? Has Bret Bielema always been that fat? It looks like he put on several pounds at his new job.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||No crap. I had a Sparty||
No crap. I had a Sparty coworker still harassing me about the botched punt yesterday. When you win on a fluke, you usually don't strut around for weeks over it.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||MSU got away with several PIs||
MSU got away with several PIs earlier in the game that could have resulted in Nebraska points.
P.S. The clock was 100% correct and they can't review whether or not the WR was pushed out of bounds by the DB.

When you mention that he has 5 SEC offers and you only mention 3 specific SEC teams, is it safe to assume that the other two schools are Vanderbilt and Kentucky?
He has a great offer list. Just poking fun at those two programs.

It is too soon for me to use a punt reference in any positive form.

We need a mass emailing to ESPN.
Let's move the game up an hour early and then not start it on time -- they have been doing this BS to other teams ALL year.

So she claims she got the same STD from Peppers TWICE?
Seems more like a hoax than a real event.

I agree. If Harbaugh would have called plays to at least drain a bit more time off we wouldn't even need to punt. If we could have averaged just 2 seconds more on 1st through 3rd down then there is 4 seconds left....you run a play where rudock throws a bomb to Chesson Deep....or simply throws it away if he can roll out for 4 seconds.

Love you Blake. We need you going forward. Keep doing your best.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I think the play calling||
I think the play calling could have been better on the last drive. Have running plays that just don't go straight up the middle to take little extra time off. If the first 3 plays just took off 2 extra seconds each...then on 4th down you just have Rudock throw a bomb deep to run off the final 4 seconds.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, lay off the kid. The||
Yes, lay off the kid.
The game hinged on lot's of different mistakes. Penalties, dropped passes, missed tackles, blown coverages, over thrown balls that would have been a TD, etc..

I think you might be right.
If the Spartan tackling O'Neill wraps up the ball or gets to O'Neill a half second quicker we probably win the game as MSU fails on a hail mary.

And Michigan still beat MSU in East Lansing that year. Seems like App. State was better than MSU.

I heard Dantonio's radio show on Thursday night driving home from work. He is such a whiny baby looking for disrespect in anything Michigan/Harbaugh does that he was asked about how to prepare for the game and timing and he responded something to the effect of "You can say there is not a clock counting down, but there is a clock and it is ticking."

Had a hard time sleeping due to the game! Go Blue, wipe that smile off Dantonio's face and make him scowl...wait?!
