Now I know what it feels like to be a Michigan State Fan.

Grasping defeat from the claws of victory.  The ultimate sparty NO.   From a 30-14 lead called back on a personal foul to a last second loss. Amazing.

I was on my seat watching the game.  Like I said before, I was rooting for Nebraska to lose so if that meant a sparty win, then so be it.  That is the price we pay for a BTC.

Just when I thought sparty might, just might be worthy of an "atta boy", they take a shit.  For a second, I knew what is is like to be sparty too.  But I have to laugh, its the same 'ole sparty.  Nothing is new here, nothing to see, move along.

They have a few successful years against us when we were down and they get all giddy and think they are our equal.  But as statistic show, everything regresses toward the mean.  One cannot take a data point that is beyond 6 sigma and think it is normal.

sparty will always be sparty.  I just hope we learn our lesson and never think they can win a ga,e which would help us.

How can a block on the interception return be a "cheap shot" when Dennard still had 70 yards to go? Adams caught up with him at the end. Presumably the Nebraska player could have, too.

Dumb block by Adams because it was uncessary. The irony is that the refs were so eager to keep Nebraska in the driver's seat that U-M got screwed indirectly.

Four losses by four points or less. That nees to be cleaned up. But I wouldn't look forward to the game in EL next year.

Did you see the Red Cedar Bowel Movement?  They are calling for marky mark's head.  They want a whole new staff.

Now I dont like marky mark anymore than the rest of this board.  But what do they expect?  marky mark is not a miracle worker.  He cannot coach up 3-star guys every single year.  It is just impossible.  sparty is right about where they should be: middle of the pack @ .500.

Rose bowl hopes are slim now. We need PSU to win next week at Lincoln. Can Nebraska get any luckier this season? Wisconsin and NW choke. Robinson gets hurt against them and now Sparty shits the bed.

Ron Zook Dumb Punt of the Week goes to Mark Dantionio for punting on 4th and 2 on the Nebraska 42 with ~1:20 left and no Nebraska timeouts left.  Make that and it's game over.

Classic, absolutely classic Sparty on the PF on the pick 6.  The PI call at the end was one of the worst calls I've ever seen though.  Now, go Pen State!!

To be fair, I think the PF on the pic6 was questionable....I believe the rule is 20 yards behind the play or more...from the angle I saw on the replay it wasn't 20 yards behind...but was 20 yards away. That guy could have gotten back into the play to make a tackle because of the traffic that had to be avoided. That one plus the PI were  bad calls IMO.

So, how can UM get to the B1G Championship now?  First tiebraker is head-to-head, not overall conference record, right?  If so, I think Neb only plays Minn and Iowa, so, um yeah.

However, they do play Penn State, while we do play OSU - is it overall conference or head-to-head.

MSU: F U more than usual.

I'm okay with MSU losing.  It just feels right.

Nebraska has shown enough weaknesses to lose to PSU.  Or to Iowa.

In the long run, I'd rather see MSU continue to lose because, well, they certainly didn't win with dignity.
