Peppers at 10, which seems low.

That's a consolation. The white pants uniforms look sharp. They're not ugly and they're actual throwback uniforms...as opposed to all those abortions Dave Brandon rolled out. But I miss the yellow pants on white jerseys.

Just yesterday, we had a guy here in Dearborn drive his car into the Rouge River. His explanation for why he did that? He claimed he mixed up the pedals and pressed the gas instead of the break.
I took that to mean he was drunk.....because nobody could be that stupid. I fear it was that way for Denard. Maybe not alcohol but something that impaired him.

I love you Braylon. But I hope #1 goes back to a highly rated recruit / freshman and we just let fate take over. The world won't come to an end if there's another Tyrone Butterfield wearing #1.

I hate it but I think that's fair given Meyer's track record. Plus they return an established QB which few teams in the B1G do other than Iowa, I think.

I trust OSU's ability (sadly) to replace vital players more than MSU's. For that, they should be flipped. Also sadly, I don't expect MSU to drop off to the MSU we've all known for the last half century. Their coach is a dick but he's good enough to make sure they won't fall to the lower or middle of the pack which was their rightful place for so many years.
I also expect the reaction to this out of East Lansing (being picked behind us) to cause a shit storm and Dantonio to print it out and put it all over their training area and practice facility because, you know, disrespect.
|1 day 9 hours ago||A blue blood program going||
A blue blood program going through a down cycle is common, yes. But Texas the last few seasons looks a lot like the Texas I saw growing up, where they ranged between awful and mediocre. It was that way for about 25 straight years before Mack Brown finally turned things around there. I'm kind of enjoying them being bad again, what with them destroying the Big 12 with the Longhorn Network and being responsible for so many teams switching conferences and the destruction of many rivalries across the country. But please beat Notre Dame when they visit you. If there's one day you don't suck, please let that be the one.
And on September 17th, I'll be cheering 'Boomer Sooner!' when Oklahoma welcomes the Buckeyes. That game will start about an hour after we finish up with Colorado at the big house so most people should have time to make it to a TV.

A family friend of mine was a cheerleader at Stanford when Harbaugh was coaching there. I remember talking briefly with her about him at Christmas time and she said he's a great coach and he's really nice....but he's kind of a crazy. And my reaction at the time was, "huh?"
Several years later, I get it. And I love it.

One play after Peppers dropped what would have been a much easier pick six.
|2 days 13 hours 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.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I was at the game and I||
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.
|1 week 1 day 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.
|1 week 1 day 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.
