|11/22/2014 - 9:29pm||So What do Indiana and Michigan have in Common?||
Only two Big 10 teams to both loose to Big 10 new comers Maryland and Rutgers. This board laughed and snided about them getting into the Big 10. Remember this when the team is good again, and stay humble.
|11/08/2014 - 10:21am||Sugar Bowl||
Spartan Tears Taste Like Sugar
|11/28/2011 - 8:28pm||Bowl Payout||
All bowl money is shared equally among big ten teams.
|11/11/2011 - 2:02pm||Actually, it was Mark Hollis'||
Actually, it was Mark Hollis' idea, and MSU reached out to UNC. Original idea was two games in 2006 against service academies, but war prevented that. Hollis knows what he is doing - he came up with the idea of outdoor hockey that everyone is copying. Also, the event is planned to be continued, and MSU will be playing in 2013.
Game is definitley bringing tons of publicity. MSU and NC all over the news, ESPN, and national coverage.
|12/13/2010 - 8:10pm||Don't know why I bother, but post #1||
Never once "pretended to be a Michigan fan".
|12/12/2010 - 1:54pm||No one on this board realizes||
The billboard in 2008 was a response to Mike "the mouth" Hart. The BCS representatives are correct. Just throwing out the head to head, the one actual consistency in the schedules was all three played at Iowa. Two won, one lost. The idea that MSU beat Wiscy who beat OSU does not fly. This does not take into account home field.
Oh ya, the other consistency is they all beat the snot out of UM.
|12/05/2010 - 7:50pm||I read Tim's post every single week.||
I found it doing a search on recruting - and thus this board.
I find it a fine collection of information on the recruiting landscape in our conference. Just thought it was very amusing "why did Sparty pass us, wha. Dee Hart, wha..."
I have also read many other posts on the board, and respect Magnus' contribution more than most. As a group you do amuse me though. So many people demanding Brandon come out with a decision all because the MSM all are speculating on RR's job security. Do you really want your AD to answer to the same MSM that you love to trash (and rightfully so).
I won't be popping in to check on your winningest football team on January 1. I wish your team the best running and passing against the SEC. I will be skipping that game for a game you should be adding to your agenda.
|12/05/2010 - 6:12pm||LOL - One guys Epinion||
And you start to whine because MSU passed UM. Not a word abour Wisconsin passing. Pitty - so focussed on MSU.
|12/05/2010 - 6:01pm||Michigan and Mississippi State||
|12/05/2010 - 4:58pm||You an MSU||
You said they would get rocked by PSU
You could not understand prior to the season why they were getting sighted as a B10 dark horse.

Seems to be a re-occuring theme lately.
|11/27/2010 - 8:15pm||obsessing||
|11/21/2010 - 9:40am||So now what a reporter interprets is FACT???||
I know I'm wasting my breath, but notice there are no quotes in the article above. It was the reporter's interpretation of what was said.
We all know reporters always get it right - right?
|11/04/2010 - 9:31pm||My problems||
Are nothing compared to this! Thanks for the pick me up.
|11/04/2010 - 8:58pm||Wow||
Can I have some of that happy juice your taking?
|10/27/2010 - 11:37pm||26-6 against Illinois||
Do you really think MSU was favored by 20 or more?
|10/24/2010 - 8:43pm||Four combos here after this weekend||
Both lose - who cares
MSU lose, Mizzou win - yes
MSU win, Mizzou lose - no
Both win - not likely
|09/03/2010 - 9:33am||My advice to you sir||
is to stop drinking so much on Thursday nights. It's distorting your perception.
|09/02/2010 - 3:07pm||Hmmm||
Are you seriously worried about what MSU might do in their bowl? Obsessing?
|09/02/2010 - 2:49pm||Or Toledo||
Oh wait. People in glass houses....
|09/01/2010 - 3:18pm||The goal is not to avoid a rematch||
but a rematch in back to back weeks. If you only ply divisional opponents in the last two weeks, there is no chance for a rematch in the last two weeks. Thus the need to avoid cross divisional games in the last week, as the other major conferences do.
|09/01/2010 - 3:04pm||And division record||
is the second criteria? Give OSU their only loss, who beat PSU. Guess what, they still go to the BTCG.
|09/01/2010 - 2:59pm||Since the two teams are in differnt divisions||
Most likely a cross over loss would be less significant in the standings. So if M beats OSU for their only loss, OSU would still make the BTCG (and vice versa). That team wins the BTCG, goes to the BCS title game with one loss (ala Oklahoma), and wins the national title. The Game is meaningless.
In the now "old days" you could not lose the last game of the year in the Big Ten amd make it to the naional title.
|08/31/2010 - 10:21pm||It will create a nice rivalry||
But the team that becomes the consistent winner will beome the longer term rival of the team that becomes the consistent winner in the other division. Auburn/Alabama is a nice rival, but nationally people are starting to talk about Bama/Florida. Could be really good for M/OSU if they both get to their historical performance at the same time
|07/13/2010 - 3:57pm||When exactly did the Spartans rush the field||
And never do they rush the BBall court like the scene after the UConn win.
|07/11/2010 - 10:44am||Your believe the players did not care about the Rose Bowl||
which was played a full seven weeks later? I'll take that bet.
|07/05/2010 - 4:27pm||First Flying car was just FCC approved||
Maybe not as sexy as Doc Brown's, but you gotta start somewhere
|07/02/2010 - 9:21am||Does anyone ever acknoledge that MSU should have had another TO||
With 36 seconds to go State misses a first down and immediately calls TO. A flag is tossed for 12 men on the field, which there were, and the refs never give State the TO back that could have been used prior to the last play. Lots of errors by the refs.
"Three years following the game, Dave Parry, the conference's coordinator of football officials, said, "that play, as much as we've put that under a high-powered microscope, was correct. We could not prove that timer wrong."
Let it go.

|06/28/2010 - 10:27am||I see your logic||
and agree with it. Thanks for the clarification.
|06/28/2010 - 8:44am||Definietly Fuzzy Logic||
If early on one team has two 5* players and another has 2 4* players, the first class is obviously better. Now add a 1* to the first class, and the star average is now less than 4 for the entire class. Therefore we have subtraction by addition.
|06/25/2010 - 5:25pm||The Line Moves as more bets are placed on a team||
Therefore, the final line is a good measure of what people who do bet often feel the true differential is. I believe someone posted earlier this opened at 13.5 and has already moved. If a casino misses a line badly, there are professionals who will move in on it quickly. Get your money on M now, because I can not imagine it going higher, but can definitely see it going lower.
|06/21/2010 - 10:57pm||From Steve Jobs||
"You've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don't settle"

|06/16/2010 - 8:48pm||Source?||
Any direct feedback from a recruit?
|06/16/2010 - 11:11am||Are you serious comparing him to Fisher based on championships?||
If you actually "think like this", then I ask you, can someone with the same number of National Championships as John Cooper be considered a great football coach? That's what I thought. Put some thought into what you say before saying it, it will serve you well.
|06/15/2010 - 9:31pm||Henning's Intelligence has shown through brightly||
First the UM is now MSU article / recant, and then the Izzo can't go back article.
|06/15/2010 - 7:52pm||This post smells like Texas||
Same division guarantees M / tOSU as the last regular seson game of the year. Guaranteeing a cross division game smells like a "we are more important" thought. Don't go there.
|06/15/2010 - 7:23pm||The writers perspective seems to be recent history||
Every single team listed in these rivalries has won a championship within the last ten years. Take out the Ravens and its more like 5 years.
|06/14/2010 - 9:20pm||Texas will put their muscle in to insure no strong FB teams join||
That will allow them to play a defacto championship against OU each year and guarantee they are potentially in the MNC game each year.
|06/13/2010 - 11:37am||In retrospect||
Maybe the post should be changed to be a "rival" or "oposing competitor". Sounds like Kirk is a class act and should be spoken of in such a way.
|06/11/2010 - 2:43pm||When the BCS has to go to a playoff it helps immensly||
Whoever makes it out of the conference will be ready to smack anyone in the mouth.
|06/11/2010 - 12:54pm||Did not expect to see Central Michigan at 99!||
Okay, so maybe it is that school in Pennsylvania.
|06/11/2010 - 12:45pm||After further review of USC courses||
None are eligible to transfer to M because the classes are High School equivalent.
|06/11/2010 - 12:34pm||It is, but it would be his last $30M||
The experiment fails, he is gone, and then what. He can stay at MSU and coach twice as long and earn the $30M without the risk of falling flat on his face. There is no way Izzo's style of coaching works in the NBA. He is not calm on the sideline, and never will be. He is simply a great college coach.
|06/10/2010 - 4:38pm||If Saban gets the Cleveland job||
I'll eat my sorts. I honestly think Izzo is the front runner.
|06/10/2010 - 12:41am||Totally disagree with your analysis||
If Izzo stays, it will be clear to all his plaers and future players that he is staying for the duration. He is now in his 50's, it is now or never, and the money most likely won't get more attractive.
As far as the scandal goes, get real, he won his one national championship with a senior laden team in 2000. IIRC, Cleeves was being recruited by M, and his recruitment eventually became a big part of the scandal.
