Which home game are you looking forward to most?

Submitted by The Fugitive on May 7th, 2018 at 1:26 PM

9/8 Western Michigan
9/15 Southern Meth (CJK5H...A)
9/22 Nebraska
10/6 Maryland (Homecoming)
10/13 Wisconsin
11/3 Penn State
11/17 Indiana
--------
Could be for a variety of reasons: the opponent, hanging out with friends, can only make it back for one game, etc. Big hitters are Nebraska (they'll out-hit everyone even if they lose by 40), Wisconsin, and Penn State.

Here's my order:
PSU
Nebraska
Wisconsin
Western Michigan
Maryland
Indiana
SMU

What sayeth the board?

The "away ones" aren't played in the greatest stadium in all of football so no.

I'm most looking forward to 9/8. It will be an emotional day, as seeing the guys take the field and be able to hit that banner for the first time in 2018 will be special.

I’ll tell you which I’m most nervous about and that’s Nebraska. Those boys hit so hard they’ll knock you into next week

I want to shut up that AD from Nebraska but psu is the big one. They are in our division and they embarassed us last year. The rest of the games are eh.

Curtis Enis, and Franco Harris might disagree. He might be the most athletically gifted, but I'm not a big Barkley fan. I watched a ton of his tape, and he avoids contact, and never runs through people. That might not work so well in NY with that Oline.

They could flop this year no doubt but they are still the most important home game next year. A loss to the badgers or even the cornfuckers is bad but it wouldn’t hurt our chances of getting to Indy as much as a loss to psu would

I've heard that kind of rosy scenario around here before.

"Michigan will reassert its dominance over MSU. Dantonio is overrated."

"Urban Meyer will have another "health issue" when Harbaugh gets here. He can't take the pressure."

... At this moment, ALL OF THEM.  I just miss football, and I'm hopeful (perhaps foolishly) that the boys will bounce back this year.  Almost more than anything, I'm praying that it is a lot less negative in the crowd this year.  I know, that starts on the field.  

 

GO BLUE!

Should be a stiff test, and it is now time to shift the pendulum back towards a beatdown in our favor.  McSorley is an interesting player. He is very effective, but I still do not know howe manages to complete so many Moon balls. We will see what he is made of without the luxury of having Barkley and Gesicki making him look like an All-American.

as fond as I am of the Pony Express, the game to circle is PSU. Up until that point they will have missed nary a beat without Moorhead, But perceptions of both teams will change dramatically once we finish shellacking them.

Wisconsin and PSU for revenge (I'd love for another 49-10 pasting of Franklin) and Nebraska to shut up Scotty boy and his mom.

Whatever game(s) my friends and I decide to make it back for so we can shoot the shit and get hammered like old times at Dominick's before walking (read stumbling) into the game

Penn State - I want their jerseys to be red when they leave that night. Also guessing that this one ends up at night. Pretty good chance they come into that game 7-1 and you all know I think we will be 8-0. It's also after our bye, so everyone will be chomping at the bit to get back on the field/into the stadium.

Penn State. Only Penn State. I will readily admit Michigan got outclassed by PSU this season, and they were out for blood after two straight seasons of ass kickings. But it should be a great matchup this season, and I'm betting they will be the night game. We'll find out how good McSorely really is next year. Barkley isn't around anymore, and neither are several of McSorely's top pass-catching targets. 

Wisconsin should be a great one too, but I could also see that game being as exciting as burnt toast. Another one between two great defenses where the first team to 17 wins.

Whichever games we can get back to A2 for - those will be my favorites.   When you miss so many home games, the ones you do see live are that much more memorable no matter the opponent.   Jealous of you guys that are still local.

Definitely Penn State. We need to get a little get back from those tree jumpers, when we ride on our enemies.
