Very frustrating to watch Ohio completely destroy PSU. It's mot even that they have much better players than us because they don't, they have a couple more impact guys but in terms of the roster as a whole there guys aren't that much better than ours if at all. The frustrating part is that the coaching plays to the strengths of the players and puts them in a position to succeed. Are coaching staff just doesn't do that. It's interesting honestly.

At the same time I feel like I may be overreacting , I'm not s damm coach. Will see how it goes tho ..

Four pts:

  1. "Our" not "Are".  Sorry to be that guy.  I suck.
  2. I think they are a little more talented than we are right not, but not by much.  Your point still stands.
  3. I wouldn't call it interesting.  I call it frustrating as hell.
  4. You probably are over-reating a little.  But there is truth in your words, or at least seems to be.  It might be temporary, or at least I hope so.

It's very frustrating but also interesting because it makes me think that maybe coach Hoke and Al are too "old school" in the way that they do things and I kind of believe some of there coaching decisions and the stubbornness of those decisions and how they refuse to diversify the things that they do on the field kind of shows this .

I, for one, ain't afraid of the Sparties.  Looking forward to the game.

I expect our D to show up better than we have recently and for MSU's offense to show their bad side.

On offense, we are much better than the teams they have played lately.  We'll score in the 20's, but I don't see MSU getting that much against us.

24 - 16

to PSU! Looks like OSU was playing against a low-level MAC team. Michigan should have won that game without even trying! Oh well, I guess it makes up for the ND win.

I don't like our chances against MSU and OSU. The rest of the games we have a good chance of winning. So 9-3 is not bad but losing to your biggest rivals suck! Hopefully, Michigan proves me wrong and we can finally kick both the offense and defense in gear. MSU's offense can look quite hapless at times.!

decision to take two knees instead of trying to gain a couple more yards there. With a kicker who hasn't made a kick in his career I think you want to make the kick as short as possible. Even with the block it would of had enough if it was a couple of yards closer.

Ultra conservative decision making  to say the least, espcially when they had been dominating upfront on the drive.
