Really hard to get excited for this game after what happened Tuesday. Not that I was feeling too great after those underwhelming performances against lowly Rutgers and Minnesota either.
Friends and family are taking me out for my birthday dinner after the game. It would be nice to celebrate a win but I don't have a ton of confidence.

They're never going to believe it. Harbaugh's name will come up for every head coaching job in the NFL no matter what he says until the end of time. We knew this would be the case as soon as he was hired last year. Just have to block it out.

2004 against Wisconsin. The Boilers were undefeated, ranked in the top ten.
At the end of that game, Kyle Orton handed Wisconsin the game losing a fumble which the Badgers picked up and ran 40 yards into the end zone for the winning score 20-17.
The following Saturday, Michigan came to town and unleashed the Ernest Shazor hit.

I'm not sure what to warn Purdue fans about first. The 2,000 one yard gains up the middle by their running game or the constant 3 defenders on top of their QB immediately following every other snap.

In the 90's, when Michigan played Neuheisel's Colorado teams, I remember Gameday doing features on him as the cool young coach who played guitar with his players. Then he went to Washington and got a Pete Carroll type reputation..."Come play for me and I'll give you a car." That earned him the nickname 'Slick Rick,' and I ripped on him plenty of times.

I mind. I grew up with the media having endless orgasms for FSU and Bobby Bowden. It got really old. I rather enjoyed them falling to mediocrity until they got their crab legs loving QB.

I'm happy Kentucky is losing but this game is going to cut into ours.

I really hate Crean. I don't care if he's married to a Harbaugh. Can't stand him.

Yes, according to the majority of Stephen King novels/movies...which all seem to take place in Maine.
I think Pennywise the clown is their biggest celebrity.

I miss John L. He and MSU were such a perfect fit.

They were already complaining when the media published that story about Harbaugh doing the good samaritan thing for those people who got in that car accident on I-94 last year.
|4 days 17 hours ago||There are sooooooo many||
There are sooooooo many moments I could list. I grew up watching us beat the Buckeyes every year (sigh). I've been to 3 of the 4 overtime wins at the big house which included Braylonfest. I was at the game where Manningham caught the TD on the final play against Penn State. The 98 Rose Bowl goes without saying.
But I don't think I've ever felt as insanely happy as I felt after the wins against Penn State in 1997 (Judgment Day) and Notre Dame in 2006. I was too happy to sleep those nights. I could not stop smiling for days. I was so damn happy, there was nothing that was going to kill my mood.
On a sidenote: Beano Cook, who had a 30 year history of public orgasms for Penn State football, made the famous quote in regards to Judgment Day: "Michigan won't even make it a game. They don't stand a chance. Send the band, have them play the 'Victors' so both sides can go home happy."
Well, Beano. We wanted to send the marching band but PSU said, "no." But our fans still went home happy.

It's unfortunate that the Iowa and Purdue games go in the record book as blowouts when they were close games late. In the last five minutes, Purdue was 11/11 on their shots and Iowa was 12/13. There was nothing they were throwing up that didn't get drained, contested or not.

I'd love it if we could beat the crap out of Indiana. Their schedule has been a cake walk since Christmas and the media is desperately trying to talk them up as if they're a number 1 seed come tournament time.

We just got an offensive rebound and a second chance basket. That's about as likely as seeing a unicorn

They said Beilien is 3-1 at MSG. I'm trying to remember previous games there and all I can think of is the Kansas State game a couple years ago.

I think they waaaaay overachieved this past season. I was NOT expecting them to play Stanford and Clemson as close as they did. Especially after losing their QB in game 2 (and winning the Virginia game on a hail mary.) There was no second half season collapse, which they usually have.
GOD, I just gave credit to Notre Dame. I feel like punching myself.
