Playing for win #900 against MSU

Submitted by glewe on October 7th, 2012 at 4:36 PM

Just thought it might be fun to point out that, assuming all goes as intended next week (Illinois looks lousy this year), our boys will be playing, not only to break a 4-year losing streak (tied for MSU's longest win-streak since at least 1953, if not in history), but to earn the programs 900th football win at home against Michigan State. It will be fun to see any hype about this.

This is barring hypothetical jinxes, but homecoming with a lousy team? I'm not afraid.

Wow, didn't realize Michigan had beaten State 900 times in the Big House. If extrapolation applies fairly accurately, I think Michigan has played Illinois more times than State and probably has a better record, so next Saturday will hopefully be about 1023 wins at home against Illinois. Very nice.

Man, I CANNOT wait to beat Sparty! I used to work with a guy who graduated from there and outside of being a Sparty he was pretty cool EXCEPT when they beat us again. Talk about Dr. Jeckyl/ Mr. Hyde!! What a complete tool he was for the next 2 weeks.

Actually their pass defense is ranked 35 of all teams. If they somewhat destroy Mawell's confidence then we will be in good shape. Levon Bell does not look too good except against Indiana.

I dont think Bell even looked good against IU.  His per carry average was very pedestrian, even below-average.  He only looked good AT THE END, when IU's DL got gassed.  If he performs against us the way he did yesterday, we'll be fine.

By the way, I so did NOT say any of this, as officially I am NOT looking past U of I.  It's Illinois week, not Sparty week.  We aren't discussing this, period.

Anyone have any feeling about what might be the kickoff time for MSU, either noon or 3:30? Just wondering if anyone's heard anything yet (semi) definitively, or knows when that information might be announced.

"1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6....."

"Hey man, what are you doing?"

"Me?  Oh, I'm just counting up my chickens here."

"But dude, those aren't chickens, those are just eggs."

"Yeah, but they will b....wait, what?"

Would be cool if Gameday were around for the occasion.  Unfortunately I have a feeling that Kansas St./WVU will get the nod.  Sleeper pick: If KSU or WVU lose this week and Duke can knock off Virginia Tech, they will go to Durham for the Duke/UNC game.  That would be something.
