This is just a regular home and home series, nothing with the B1G-Pac12 deal. That deal will start in 2017, and the teams/matchups will rotate, so its not like we are matched up with oregon and northwestern is matched up with stanford, its just a coincidence. They are taking WVU's place because WVU opted out after its move to the big 12.

I think (hope) we'll get matched up against Cal. Our series with Oregon, UCLA, Washington, Utah, and Colorado were fairly recent. We also played USC twice pretty recently (albeit in Rose Bowls). We haven't  played Cal since 1980. Also, they will be eager to host a marquee opponent in their new stadium.

All signs point to Cal.

So Sparty agrees to schedule the Ducks when they will likely be affected by sanctions (likely, although I'm not sure NCAA discipline will affect them by then).  Hmmm...That was my first thought when I read this.

say that Michigan States procombats were ugly. I thought they were pretty nasty. What was awful was our road unis that day. It pains me to say this but I liked em. It doesnt matter what uniform you wear as long as Chip Kelly is there though. The recruits they bring in now will account for there games then and to my knowledge they are not going to be getting the quality recruits they have been getting since Brady took over.

Those two games against them sucked. We were such a better team in 2003, but they had the home field advantage big time for that one. Then of course in 2007 we couldn't have picked a worse time to play them...right after, well, you know.

I was there and, thanks to you, I have now wasted 17 years of therapy!  

Actually, I was thinking the same thing about playing Colorado.  We beat them the rest of the series. Knuble and Ward even paraded the Stanely Cup at the Big House during a Colorado game when they were Wings (lol Av fans).  However, I would still love to see us pound them a couple of times.

Seriously though, did you have to post a video of the play, much less one that freezes on the momen he makes the catch.  I mean, WTF?

I think Fhshockey might be an angry Sparty troll in disguise.  That is just plain mean.  If anyone does that again they're going to lose their points indefinitely (a sort of life sentence without parol that a convict received for a depraved heart killing).

Add me to those rooting for UM-Cal or UM-UCLA. Either would be great, and I'd definitely go to the away portion. And maybe Cal and UCLA will be playing better by the time it happens.
