Peppers at 10, which seems low.

One play after Peppers dropped what would have been a much easier pick six.
|7 hours 34 min ago||Is this seriously a feature||
Is this seriously a feature now at Big Ten Media days? You take a team and have players release anonymous statements about said team?
I know the off season is long but I kind of miss the days where everything related to college football on the internet wasn't pointless clickbait.

Wow. You won more games than Brady Hoke two straight years.
That's a very high standard of bragging you got there, MSU.

I'm getting really tired of this pity party that Penn State continues to throw for themselves.

Delaney and retirement. Those two words in the same sentence are so beautiful, the mere thought of it brings a tear to my eye.

Doubtful since the game is at Tennessee and they've lost 11 straight to Florida. That will be a hot ticket even if the Gators are winless.

He was playing pretty well before he got suspended.
What's interesting is Treon Harris was thrown into the starting QB position just one week before the LSU game. And he threw for nearly 300 yards in a 7 point loss in Baton Rouge. He had solid games in blowout wins over Ole Miss and Georgia. It wasn't until the last couple weeks of the season that he really started to struggle.

I was at the game and I wasn't exactly happy at that moment because I thought we were finished when the flag was thrown.
Thank GOD Roundtree ended up catching that bomb, right in front of me. In a matter of one play, I went from dread and misery to excitement and hope.

Ira was saying on WTKA this morning that he's afraid all the questions directed at Harbaugh are going to be about satellite camps, the rap video and the SEC...and nothing about the actual team. Hopefully that's not the case.

I love those. I think the Biakabutuka one would be more accurate if he were carrying 3 Buckeyes, but that's still pretty impressive.

Looks like our bye week is before the Illinois game. We'll get some much needed rest after our "rivalry" game with Rutgers before facing another rival. So many rivals.

Well done, young man. Butch Jones would call you a traitor but we know better.

My thoughts exactly.
The Big 12 was destroyed when Texas got the Longhorn Network and they don't really seem to care that it's still screwing everything up. It seems the only logical thing for them to do is become Independent.

God Bless Peyton's futility against Florida.
1997 Florida/Tennessee was my first memory of watching College Gameday and the MASSIVE hype that game got.

Really? I'd think Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss fans, etc. would enjoy Tennessee's misery.

Growing up and into adulthood, I just pointed at the scoreboard. Nothing was more satisfying than that.
Want back desperately.
|6 days 3 hours ago||I'm sorry but screw that.||
I'm sorry but screw that. MSU has received some of the most favorable scheduling (in conference play) for many, many years.
MSU has been in the Big Ten since 1953. That's 62 years. Of those 62 years, they did not have to play Ohio State 24 times. That's roughly 40% of the history of their membership. Whenever these teams play each other (and I'm rooting for that meteor) I'm always struck when the broadcasters will show the all time series record between the two teams and I see how rarely they have played. For some reason, OSU has rotated off of MSU's schedule a lot.
With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers to the conference, the divisions got changed and MSU and OSU now shared the same one. My reaction was, "Great! Now MSU has to play OSU every year. No more favorable scheduling.
If MSU goes to the other division, they get this luxury back. Only now it would probably be 4-6 years between meetings with the Bucks. And like I said before, screw that.
|6 days 4 hours ago||I keep hearing that Manuel is||
I keep hearing that Manuel is trying to fix the schedule to getting MSU back to the way it was but how is he supposed to accomplish that? Asking Mark Hollis pretty please is not going to work.
The only possibility I can think of that might make this happen is the transition from an 8 game conference schedule to a 9 where the schedule quirk takes it completely out of MSU's hands ... just like it was out of our hands when we were forced to go to East Lansing two years in a row because of the addition of Rutgers and Maryland to the B1G.
Out of curiosity, I went and looked at the other B1G teams schedule quirks because of Rutgers and Maryland, where teams had to play consecutive road games against an opponent in 2013 and 2014. This is what I found...
*INDIANA - Played @Michigan and @OSU
*MICHIGAN - Played @MSU
*MSU - Played at nobody consecutive years.
*OSU - Played at nobody consecutive years.
*PENN STATE - Played @Indiana
*ILLINOIS - Played @Nebraska
*IOWA - Played @Purdue and @Minnesota
*MINNESOTA - Played @Michigan
*NEBRASKA - Played at nobody consecutive years.
*NORTHWESTERN - Played @Iowa
*PURDUE - Played @Indiana
*WISCONSIN - Played @Iowa
Interestingly, it seems Indiana got screwed more than we did, having to play at Ann Arbor and Columbus two straight years. But they got Purdue at home both years. That was the only other rivalry in the conference that got effected ala UM/MSU. Also interesting that both our rivals didn't have to deal with this.
I'm still trying to figure out how this way was the only way. Did we get screwed because the two new members of the conference are in OUR division? Whatever the reason, that MSU game has got to be fixed.

This is true. For me, the time period between kindergarten and senior year of college, we lost to OSU a total of 3 times. And the yap, yap, yapping from Columbus was really no less than it is today. And I'm not exaggerating.

I'm honestly surprised it took them this long to make a video response.
I was expecting to see something within hours of the original posting.

I don't get this guy. When he's not pleasuring himself to photos of Nick Saban, does he talk about ANYTHING other than Harbaugh?
If he's trying to make click bait material for a reaction, I'm not falling for it because I've had 20 years experience of Drew Sharp covering my teams.

Texas/Texas A&M still floors me. They played each other 100-something consecutive years. They always ended their seasons against each other.

Isn't Texas the entire reason why the Big 12 has been destroyed? Because of the Longhorn Network?
If their fans are disgruntled, I'm having trouble gathering any sympathy for them.

I agree. I don't even see this as a shot.
There are plenty of dick coaches out there with plenty of dick things to say. This is not one of them.

Conference realignment talk always hurts my head. I hate that geography plays no factor anymore. I don't think conferences should have more than 12 teams. I hate that rivalries have been destroyed thanks to realignment.
Just tired of the madness.

|1 week 1 day ago||Because the ACC has no balls||
Because the ACC has no balls and Notre Dame gets special treatment, as usual. Just like that undeserved TV contract they have with NBC where they spent nearly two decades trying to get back to glory. Why do they have that perk? Because they're Notre Dame.
Being a part time member of a conference is about the stupidest thing I ever heard. You're either a full member or you're not a member. But the ACC says no. They joyously said, "sure. You can....sort of be a member of the conference in football." God, that sounds like something Delaney would do.
Slowest clap in history for the ACC.
