I will be rooting for Nebraska to lose, not moo u to win.  moo u is irrelevent.  No one cares about them.  Not even the students and alumni.  Their stadium can only hold 80K, this is almost half of ours and we will up the Big House every single "cotton pick'n saturday" as the Ufer would say.

I am in the military, and live in Omaha. Many of the Husker fans made the trip to LA for the UCLA game, as well as the Northwestern game a few weeks ago. I know they travel well, but from all the rumblings I have heard, I wouldn't expect an overwhelming crowd like we saw at NW in Chicago a few weeks ago.

As an American and a consumer, I welcome information of this nature, that helps me decide how to spend my money.  Because, you know, I could watch the MSU-Nebraska game live.  Or I could eat a burrito.  It's a difficult decision.  Because there's football.  But its Michigan State football.  And then, there's a burrito.

Life throws some tough choices at you sometimes.

as well as the confirmation that they have the worst fanbase in the conference as it pertains to being fair weather. Sparty is a synonym for irrelevancy. Also, there is a large Hispanic population in the state if Michigan, so the market rate for a good burrito is always of interest.

BTB, Chicken burrito with green salsa. Exactly $6. That, or sit out in the cold watching two fat kids have a pillow fight. Hmmm.

If it were an actual pillowfight between two actual fat kids. I'd totally pay 6 bucks to see that. Given that it's a metaphor for MSU football though, I'll take the burrito.

Come to think of it though, StraightDave still owes me a steak dinner, so I can save my money and still watch the metaphorical pillowfight.

My guess is there's a tremendous collective let-down in Sparty-land this year.  Coming off last year, even with Cousins gone, the expectations were high.  Losing to ND, OSU, Michigan and (for good measure) Iowa has taken all the wind out of their sails.

In a way, Michigan's loss to Nebraska last week did something similar, though not quite to the same degree.  Alabama and ND could have been looked past, but losing to Nebraska and putting them in the driver's seat for the division hurt.  The season is not over, and of course we're all looking forward to OSU ... but I think it's safe to say the enthusiasm would be a whole lot higher had we beat Nebraska last week.

Just human nature ... dealing with unmet expectations is not always a joy ride.

we just need Nebraska to lose a game or even, 2. There are other games left on their schedule besides @MSU. Now a loss by Nebraska tomorrow would be nice, but Michigan's whole season does NOT depend on it. I wouldn't be unhappy with a Spartan victory, but then again, I wouldn't be too upset to see Nebraska pile it on either. A very mediocre season for Sparty would be a welcome thing around here.

Mmmm Hmmm

But on the other hand, last year you could have gotten two tickets for the price of one and a five dollar footlong from Subway...let's not worry about the fact that was for a bad out of conference game...

One of these looks great from afar, definitely worth your time and investment, especially if you are drunk.  Yet, once you actually experience it first hand, it falls apart while making a mess, and leaves you feeling sick to your stomach and proclaiming that you'll never do THAT again.

And then there's the burrito.
