Drove from Indianapolis with my wife early Saturday morning and met up with my parents and some friends. We parked at the Special Olympics lot that people on the board were talking about leading up to the game, they were great, even saved my parents a spot while we waited for them to arrive. We had a great time tailgating there, multiple OSU fans came up and introduced themselves, welcomed us, told us to have a great time, I was caught off guard to say the least. There were several O-H-I-O/Go Blue exchanges as more people arrived but no trash talk. The walk to the game was a little different, we were joking about not using the porta-john alone for fear of getting tipped over, but everyone was nice to us. There were a few exceptions close to the stadium, but for every fan that yelled F-Michigan at us, there were 3-4 apologizing and wishing us good luck. We were in the family section for the game (my younger brother is on the team) so we were insulated from the OSU fans. The stadium was pretty impressive and loud, I thought it was a great atmosphere for sure and loved every minute of it (besides the result of course).
After the game it was a different world...
It was as if all the OSU trolls came out from under their rocks and bridges and descended upon us. We were waiting for the players to come out by the bus and it was like the worst offenders flocked over to talk shit. I think I heard the "we don’t give a damn about the whole state of Michigan..." chant about 50 times in the span of 20 minutes. I had "F-Michigan!" yelled directly to my face even more, about 35% of the time it was from a woman. I laughed and took it in stride since they had every reason to be excited. The best part was that they were all idiots and didn't know how to respond to us saying good luck in their bowl game or clapping along to their stupid chants. The OSU event staff finally got their shit together and blocked off a large portion leading to the player buses so the families could see the players without being bombarded with a chorus of "F- Michigan!" chants.
My favorite moment of the day occurred on the walk back, we were walking back as a group with a couple families, and one fine trailer trash specimen came up to us and started yelling "FUCK MICHIGAN, GO HOME YOU FAGGOTS, etc..." He was walking the opposite direction, but turned around and was walking along side JT floyd's cousin who was just taking it in stride and out of nowhere he lunges at the guy and says "BOO!" I kid you not I think this kid pooped his pants. He flew backwards (no one touched him) and had the look of death on his face, he was so embarrassed and didn't know what to do because everyone including OSU fans were laughing at him. He tried to play it off and hi-five us, but we were having nothing of the sort and told him to go change his pants.
We were taunted the entire way back but I was laughing and we never had anything thrown or dumped on us, I was expecting the worst but it really wasn't bad at all. Overall it was a great experience and I can't wait for 2014 when we are running the system Borges is comfortable with, or he has been replaced...but that is a discussion for another thread (or 7), amiright?

We only need to jump 5 more spots, I figure a win over Ohio would give us a 3-4 spots and we would only need another team or two in front of us to lose to get in the top 14.
At this point there is no chance Nebraska loses to Iowa.

What a great spotlight for the program and university, Brandon probably set it up so we have to give him credit, albeit begrudgingly.

He didn't make the trip because he violated team rules and let's just leave it at that. He is not in any legal trouble and is healthy.

Most of the walk-ons that were awarded scholarships today were 4th or 5th year seniors. I know 5 of the 7 definitively and they are:
Just to clarify a few things regarding scholarships for walk-ons. Once a walk-on has been on campus for 2 years, giving them a scholarship counts against the 85 but does NOT count toward the annual limit of 25. Even with a large class of 2013, there will still be several walk-ons that get scholarships.

Hoke called them all up on stage in front of the team and then said they were all getting scholarships. Everyone went nuts. I love Hoke.

Good article, still think the higher seeded team who is actually in the playoff should decide where they play, not the conference.

|1 year 10 weeks ago||StubHub - Ticketmaster- Scalp||
There are 800 tickets on stubhub for Session 4 (Friday night Michigan and OSU games), and you can still get 4 tickets together on Ticketmaster. If Purdue wins Thursday, they will play in sesssion 4 friday night, but Indiana is in Session 3 so there is no way this game will sell out.
I would strongly advise against buying all-session passes, Michigan doesn't even play Thursday and you don't want to add insult to injury if Michigan loses and then you are stuck with tickets to 3 games you don't care about.
There were a ton of people selling tickets on the street last year, I think we lucked out that IU is on the other side of the bracket because there will be a lot of casual fans showing up at the game to watch them.
I have friends coming down and we are going to buy 4 tickets to Session 4 and then go from there depending on what happens.
Hope that helps.

Technically it is in a hotel, but it doesn't feel that way at all. Champoins is a huge bar with a couple projector screens and a ton of TVs. I'm actually surprised Nebraska got it because they are terrible and will probably have 13 fans there. They have really good food and it is a fun place when it is packed, I'd rather have Champions than O'Reilly's because that place was packed to the brim last year.

If you like chimney smoking red-necks, Slippery Noodle is the perfect fit! MSU fans everywhere are rejoicing.

You want to talk efficiency?
25 pts on SEVEN FG attempts. This is the THJ from last year and it is a welcome sight. We can make a serious run if Hardaway is playing to his potential and Smotz gets his shit together.

After enjoying some schadenfreude over at the RCMB, it looks like Dantonio decided not to attend MSU's junior day today. Several prospects cancelled their visit and the biggest slap in the face has to be Kugler's commitment to Michigan.
Saint Dantonio must be doing his thing on a national recruiting search.
