I listened to the MSU game on my drive home from our major disappointment. MSU played a great game against a solid team.
With that said, George Blaha and Jim Miller are not very good radio guys. I know every team has homer radio guys, but these guys are near insane and make up their own football rules.
The most annoying instance was an unnecessary roughness call against MSU. Miller, a former Spartan QB, actually said "the unnecessary roughness should be called on Stanzi for leaving his Receiver out to dry with a late pass". So the ref should throw the flag on the Iowa QB for an unnecessary roughness hit by a Spartan DB on the WR?!?!?!
They kept whining, and choosing not to describe how the hit was "legal" - all while saying that these refs should have to go to extra summer training.
Finally the sideline reporter pointed out that it was a helmet to helmet hit, to which they falsely replied that helmet to helmet never applies unless the guy is defenseless.
There was a lot of other whining and ripping on the BigTen for having the worst refs.
Anyways, long drive back after we looked awful. We have to improve, our line played awful and the drops and QB problems are mounting. Here is to a better game at Illinois.
