And does that not scare them that Maryland's putrid offense did what they did against their D? And in Columbus?
|7 hours 39 min ago||I was at the Northwestern||
I was at the Northwestern game and while it was BEAUTIFUL, it strangely didn't feel THAT different from past games. And I've been going to at least 2 a year since 1996. But keep in my mind that I was in a combination of shock and bliss that my usual senses may have felt altered. The last seven years have left me with PTSD and I still, at times, keep waiting to have my heart ripped out. So when your team comes out and plays...like that...you're in a completely different world.
The luxury boxes really do a good job of holding the sound in.
And since people have been mentioning past loud games, if you want to revisit a non-rivalry, pre-luxury boxes game at the big house, go back and watch the 2000 Wisconsin game. The crowd was on fire all day long. And when Henson threw that prayer across his body to David Terrell in the back of the end zone, it was probably as loud as it ever was.

I guess MSU's game against Purdue was pretty comparable to our game against Akron. Horrible team playing on the road, making surprisingly accurate big plays, a chance to win the game in the final minute...although Akron was 20 yards closer.
And sure enough, our game against UConn on the road was like their road game at Rutgers. Although we played a horrible first half, still played ugly as hell but shut them out in the second half and escaped by 3. State blew a 14 point lead in the second half, Rutgers would have had the go ahead score in the final minutes had their running back not tripped over his own foot (but it's Rutgers, so what are you going to do?)
There are many similarities so far but I think that all gets debunked when you face the reality that 2015 MSU is better than 2013 UM.

Tons of major annoucements in college football this week. Wonder what's going to happen tomorrow.

The rushing stat in this series goes back much farther than 2000. The winner of the rushing game has won nearly every meeting since Schembechler was hired.
Before Braylonfest, the only other game where that didn't happen was in Lloyd Carr's first year, 1995 where on MSU's final drive, they were forced to attempt a 4th down conversion, we stopped them a yard and half short but the ref moved the chains anyway. Then they went on to score to win 28-25.

I don't see us shutting out a team with a senior QB. Sorry. I still think we have as good a chance as ever to win but a part of me just suspects that State will play better this week.

Wait a sec. Smith looked gimpy when he left the game? I assumed Harbaugh pulled him because we were up by so much, might as well put Green in.
Please don't tell me he looked gimpy.

To add to those opponents who Kansas State shut out.
That 2-9 Akron team averaged 10 points a game.
That 3-8 Northern Illinois team averaged 16 points a game.
That 3-8 Missouri team averaged 13 points a game.
Not exactly offensive powerhouses there.

Penn State kicked off to us in that game and we drove the field and kicked a field goal before unleashing the defense on them.
Still an epic game.

Yeah, he's an ass. I've hated him ever since he did nothing to punish that Badger player who tried to rip Breaston's leg off.

They showed one replay in the stadium that looked like the ball ever so slightly bounced off the guy's chest and Lewis just grabbed it. In real time, everyone thought the Northwestern guy caught it.

Oops. I take it back. The interception and pep talk is in there.
|1 day 12 hours ago||A side note about that game.||
A side note about that game. It wasn't a spectacular day for Harbaugh. He threw three interceptions that game. But this was the Schembechler years, where you could turn the ball over multiple times against State and still win with relative ease 9 times out of 10.
|2 days 6 hours ago||He'll use that and the entire||
He'll use that and the entire off season media being focused on Jim Harbaugh as motivation. It's comical, however, how much Dantonio uses the disrespect card even though his program HAS gotten more respect in the last few years. But if 99% of the media picks him to win, he still screams about disrespect from that 1% who didn't pick him. It's not as big of a factor as it used to be but he's still going to milk it for all its worth.
Unfortuantely, I agree with your second point as well. They're going to play better this week. Kind of like all those years where crappy Notre Dame teams would come out make the kind of plays they won't make the rest of the season and then it's back to sucking the following week.
I expected tough battles against BYU and Northwestern and I was wrong. I expect a tough battle against MSU and I think this is the first time I'll be right.

Being at the game yesterday, I was too busy celebrating to notice Harbaugh freaking out at 8:41 left in the 3rd quarter.
What was he angry about?
|2 days 8 hours ago||I keep hearing people say||
I keep hearing people say that and I don't understand. Yes, Ole Miss got that extremely lucky bounce on one play but they were up in that game 43-24 in the 4th quarter...on Alabama's home field....at night. You have to give those guys some credit.

Subtract the nearly 400 yards of offense by Maryland and OSU would have had an impressive win themselves.

|2 days 13 hours ago||I'll still be nervous as hell||
I'll still be nervous as hell this weekend but being nervous is better than helpless, which is what I felt at this time exactly one year ago.
But I couldn't agree more with you about yesterday. It was kind of like the BYU game in that they played soooo much better than what I expected. And that felt AWESOME. But yesterday was better because I was at the game.
I don't even care now that the majority of the media will probably say Northwestern was overrated, not as good as their record, blah, blah, blah. As Bob Ufer once said, "Who cares? Who gives a damn?"
Just win, baby!
|2 days 22 hours ago||Amen. Scott Frost's face you||
Amen. Scott Frost's face you just want to punch over and over and listening to their insufferable fans. That miracle illegal kick to force overtime with Missouri.
Try managing my YouTube account and see how much you admire Husker fans. They will never leave me the hell alone about 1997 and have to talk sh*t over any video from that year.
Screw those guys. Nebraska can lose every week for all I care.

I'm actually shocked they chose us over an SEC game. But I'll take it.
I can't even remember the last time Gameday was in Ann Arbor for a non-Notre Dame game.

I like the thought of those inbreds being terrified but the majority of them most likely aren't.
And you just know they'll have all their problems fixed by November.

Stupid Rutgers. If you were Colorado, you would have gotten a 5th down attempt.

Love the Michigan sideline going absolutely nuts during Chesson's kickoff return.
And the defense chant was epic in person. The video doesn't even give it justice.

Rutgers seems to play better when I'm not watching. So I'm going to switch to Florida State/Miami. They're tied.
