I am prepared to ask about how Teddy Ruxpin is doing as the secondary coach..

Like Drew Sharp and all the other internet flamers, the more he pisses you off, the more you listen to his inane gibberish, and the more advertising revenue he gets.

Biggest POS show in the Detroit market.  Not something I miss about home.

Valenti is a jackass.  That's why I stopped listening to him. 

I doubt this is even a rant for him anyway.  It wasn't a usual Spartan choke job.  They weren't favored over the weekend, although I picked them to win.  Maybe he'll rant about that pathetic fake field goal attempt by Dantonio that everyone in the world saw coming but I don't see what else.  

My guess is Valenti talks very little about the MSU/ND game and instead takes phone calls from the stupidest Michigan fans that will call in (because he and Foster refuse to ever take phone calls from logical Michigan fans.)  That sets the stage for Valenti to make fun of Michigan fans in his usual condescending voice.  And Foster, naturally, will continue to bait him by saying, "We're Michigan and we're back!!!" to make Valenti rant even more.  That takes the attention off of Sparty losing big and puts it on Michigan fans being stupid.  

This is exactly why I stopped listening to those guys.  They're a little too predictable.

Could a screener really tell if you're a logical caller within a few seconds? I mean, it's obvious when you've got a mouth-breather on the line, but has anyone actually had the experience of calling that show, speaking intelligently to the screener before being put on the air and then have them tell you "No thanks, not what we're looking for" before hanging up?

I think they could be fairly entertaining but your right, it is nothing but a script that repeats itself over and over again.  Valienti knows what is coming though, he follows this stuff.  He knows Michigan is about to take the state back over and the MSU wasted whatever window they had.  My guess is they will gradually begin to talk far less college football as time goes on.  Not sure that show is even viable once Michigan becomes Michigan again.

While I agree the window is quickly closing, I do not agree that they wasted it. During the "window", they won a big ten championship and sniped a few nice in state recruits that may have gone to UM otherwise. I see your point, but they didn't waste anything.

He was MIA the day after we beat MSU in hoops in February.  So he may take another "scheduled day off".  Or maybe they'll just talk Lions all day long.  I'll wait until the Monday after we beat State next month to listen to Valenti. 

Personally I'm looking forward to hearing their producer explain why he thought the Chiefs would keep the Lions game close.
