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.

No did not enjoy that. Feel terrible we were so close to controling our destiny.

Oh well hopefully PSU gets it done next week.

Maybe Iowa or Minnesota can get the Braskers.

End of day we can only control our games and hopefully we win out. If Braska does the same then great maybe we can both represent the Big Ten well in bowls.

Beat Northwestern next week Blue.

The Sandusky incident and the cover up that followed should have gotten the school booted from the Big 10.  I still don't believe that their state government hasn't taken any actions against the school.  I would be pissed if I lived there and they continued to funnel my tax dollars to a school that chose a pedophile and football over morals and the law of the land.

I would rather lose a shot at Indy then cheer for Pedophile State U.

Yeah, Spielman said the exact same phrase, verbatim, last season when he was calling an MSU game which as you pointed out is hilarious because his teams are the dirtiest in the league and the most prone to bone-headed, heat-of-the-moment penalties.

Spielman just has a hard on for Dantonio because he [Dantonio] is from Zanesvile, OH, hates Michigan and was the DC for OSU's 2002 MNC team.

Do not induce vomiting.  Call 911 or get someone to drive you to the hospital.  That bleach you just drank has likely dropped your IQ by 40 pts(which I am assuming was the desired effect), but you may yet survive.

Dantonio will be gone in two years. He's already pleading for seats to be filled with fans that simply don't care. If they win 11 games and beat Michigan the spartan fans are there but when their team needs them for conference survival games nobody cares. If they would have beat Wisconsin and Nebraska back to back that would have been huge but now they're just a 5-5 team on the brink of a failure of a season.

No shit, really?!? 

Just a slight hint dude.  When you're writing to tell OTHER people that they're dumb, it's best to actually write a proper sentence.  Jus' sayin'

I always try to play the "rooting" game with Michigan's best interest in mind -- i.e., rooting for Sparty.  I say "try" because I start out with that mindset, but then at some point root against teams like MSU, OSU, and ND.  I hate them, I hate their fans, and I hate their coaches.  All that hate makes it impossible for me to wish anything upon them losses,  even when a win would help Michigan.   I know that's irrational, but I know they do the same to us, so fuck them.

It damn well better. There is no way they deserve to play for a MNC. ND has so many close, lucky wins this year it makes me nauseated. The ONLY solace I take re: ND is that teams with that many close wins in a season usually fall down hard the next. Auburn had 7 close wins in 2010 and then lost 5 games in 2011.

MSU loses at least one game a year with boneheaded personal fouls.  I also don't see how they don't go for it on 4th down there - use your RB who is averaging 5.5 ypc and get that!

When the MSU player threw a right cross , did anyoneelse catch the announcer commenting on how "that isn't typical of a Dantonio coached player"? I justabout died laughing.

I sympathize mildly with Sparty. That was one of the worst instances of a phantom pass interference call I have ever seen. Big Ten officiating has been horrible this year.
