This is because of the name drop conversation earlier this week, right?

10/19/2018 - 1:09pm 95% chance of some vodoo.

95% chance of some vodoo.

15% chance it makes a difference in the outcome.

You lost me at "udder dominance"

Logged in to say the same thing. Thanks. The guy's been my doc for ~5 years now and I can't think of a nicer, harder working, doc in the area (though obviously he spends most of his time teaching and to this day I still have no idea why he was accepting patients). 

Just because someone has an MSU affiliation doesn't make them bad.  

10/16/2018 - 9:31pm Yeah dantonio, like you…

Yeah dantonio, like you really believe it's just another conference game.

I'm okay with two "Bosa quits osu" threads in one day.

If you carry your small child you can usually get away with a 5th or whatever your choice beverage is.

10/16/2018 - 9:05pm That neighborhood can fill…

That neighborhood can fill up early... Especially for a noon game... 8-9am latest. 

The neighborhood ne of Harrison and grand River is just about as close, and if you go a block or two back there is almost always parking (the streets are windy and confuse even drunk Spartans).

10/15/2018 - 10:25pm Sesquicentennial swirl or…

Sesquicentennial swirl or bust. I will be entirely un-disrekpectfull and say that it is absolutely the best ice cream I've ever had. Bar None. 

10/15/2018 - 10:07pm I don't like the word…

I don't like the word commiserate because it implies pain and suffering as in we can't do anything about our situation in life. 

 

10/15/2018 - 10:26am Yeah I don't know how…

Yeah I don't know how someone could read this as place dropping. Going to London for business is not exactly out of this world unusual for many Michigan grads (especially Ross). Now if he (she)'s saying it was for pleasure, that's maybe different. Like I have the resources to spend to go somewhere. That's great, bud.. But doing so on your employer's tab doesn't even mean much. Let's not get all snowflakey, seems like a valid question. 

10/15/2018 - 10:17am I would love to beat what…

This conversation seems a little ahead of itself. We still have 3 more very tough games before we even get an opportunity at the B1G.

Also, given the history of our two schools I don't know that we need to "repay" Iowa for anything. 

10/15/2018 - 10:12am So it really still looks…

So it really still looks like a race between Iowa and Wisconsin. Both have NW (Iowa at home) and Penn State (both away) with similar odds of winning NW and not winning Penn State.

Purdue isn't getting through their schedule without at least 2 more B1G losses unless you really like the dark horse candidate- they really are one.

While Northwestern may have the easiest remaining schedule, they aren't favorites for either Iowa or Wisconsin. It's not even close.

Beat State(s)

Michigan State is the little brother of state's. 

10/14/2018 - 6:10pm The playoffs aren't there…

OP: The playoffs aren't there for MSU's taking regardless of what they do for the rest of the season. Let's just clear that up for any RCMB/STAE fan trolling these boards.

10/14/2018 - 6:04pm Hopefully the weather holds …

Hopefully the weather holds @mgoweather. Extended forecast is currently calling for around 45 degrees and 10 mph winds. 

10/14/2018 - 6:00pm This was you from last month…

This was you from last month. I'm just saying...

PSU looks very dangerous, especially with how effectively their offense checks into better plays against the presented D formation, as does UW because obvious so I honestly think our best chance is at Sparty.
10/14/2018 - 5:55pm So are you guys saying that…

So are you guys saying that if we have the pleasure of getting to play Wisconsin in the B1G title game with most of the D healthy, but we get a healthy Black, Gary, Aubry, etc. and a OLine and Patterson with 6 more weeks experience (both seem to be getting much better over the season given newness to the program)... that we won't do nearly as well? 

Both of our programs are a bit worn down currently, but let's not kid ourselves about who was the better team last night and whether or not both teams have more than 1 deep talent. 

10/14/2018 - 5:51pm The Don seems to prefer…

The Don seems to prefer additional experience and cohesion through his normal extensive player rotation. It's like a free practice in the 4th quarter sometimes. I can see how that would provide benefits especially later in the season. It's also a good talking point stats wise for new recruits.

When you have the depth like that you can do what you want. 

10/14/2018 - 2:20pm Agreeing to play a west…

Agreeing to play a west coast time zone team at 11pm their time vs 2am our time was one of the dumbest moves I've seen Dantonio do. If I were an AP member I would give them a break for that loss, they were in control of that game until their wheels came off about 1:30-2am our time. 

10/14/2018 - 2:19pm Loving that we get to meet a…

Loving that we get to meet a "ranked" team on the road next weekend. 

10/14/2018 - 2:18pm They are ranked 24th in the…

They are ranked 24th in the AP poll.

10/14/2018 - 2:17pm So it's official. Michigan…

So it's official. Michigan at 6. 

I'm also very happy that State is #24. That makes next week a road game vs a ranked opponent. 

10/14/2018 - 2:16pm They won't put bama in if…

They won't put bama in if they are a 1 loss non- SEC champion. That's basically what they did last year as the 2nd SEC team. To do so twice in a row, with only 4 spots would cause about 4 power-5 conferences to collectively lose their [email protected]*%$ at the obvious SEC bias. 

Do I believe Alabama deserves to be in their as of right now. Yep. Me and everyone else. Same with Clemson. But conference championships have to be viewed as a mostly first round of the playoffs. If you want a chance at the playoffs without winning your conference, you better have an extremely good reason (such as a 12-0 ND or a last second close loss away to a top team, not just a "top team at the time who ended up loosing to Tennessee and some other random teams").

10/14/2018 - 10:31am Almost all of MSU's injured…

Almost all of MSU's injured players will return, they will run lots of new looks, play dirty and dantonio will explode at any ref who throws a flag, but hopefully the game runs away from them in the 3rd-4th quarter. 

I still expect little brother to play close. As we saw yesterday, even if he falls vs crappy teams (this is an MSU tradition), he still fully comes to play all out vs Michigan. 

10/14/2018 - 9:17am His last seven runs combined…

His last seven runs combined for 25 yards, so he was averaging about that but not much more. He wasn't a sure thing as fourth and short yardage tends to be harder to pick up.

10/13/2018 - 11:15pm What, this isn't a muppets…

What, this isn't a muppets thread?

10/12/2018 - 8:58pm The thing about a commercial…

The thing about a commercial is if it were true, people wouldn't feel the need to pay others to let it be known.

Homemade hard cider, 32 proof.

Clicked here thinking there was a freep article about Michigan v Wisconsin.

You prefer 6-2 vs 6-8 Michigan Tackles?

10/12/2018 - 9:43am He's using the same excuses…

He's using the same excuses that Urban used.

1) I didn't know

2) some iteration of they were not convicted or found guilty (works well when you have local police and prosecutors in your court/pocket).

10/11/2018 - 9:11pm It's simply because its a…

It's simply because it's a night game and that puts a decent section of the fanbase off of going, enough so that there isn't a ton of high dollar demand to swoop in... and not that many poor badgers willing to make the trip like there would be for MSU/OSU games.

10/11/2018 - 9:05pm It almost goes without…

It almost goes without saying, but if you (and your ticket) go out of the stadium fenced in area, you can't come back in (even with a ticket), unless you are wearing Buckeye gear of course, then feel free to leave as many times as you want. 

10/11/2018 - 9:02am usually when people say …

usually when people say "third party" they mean someone not part of the agreement/scenario or someone not involved in the actual process. Like they could just mean the involved parties (which could be 2, 5, etc) vs the uninvolved (3rd) parties. 

I'm just saying don't interpret too much and try to find the 2nd party in this situation. 

10/11/2018 - 8:54am I think what's most…

I think what's most interesting about this is that while USC was the odds favorite, it had already lost two games, presumably taking it out of consideration for any playoff spot.

Washington State, however, was 3-0 and had a fairly easy road ahead of it, possibly until the end of the season showdown with Washington. If the league wanted to show favoratism, it had a reason to do so in supporting Washington State. I'm glad they still lost (by 3), the call was one of the most clear targeting calls all year.

 

10/11/2018 - 8:32am I think the combination of…

Interesting. Two plausible reasons why Gary doesn't get a holding call in his favor on (at least) every series.

1) Lack of obvious reduction in movement when he only has one defender on him

2) Many many double teams

10/10/2018 - 10:48am He was driving without…

He was driving without registration or insurance. That's much different than not signaling or fully stopping, something all of us do vs something probably most of us have never done.

10/10/2018 - 10:44am This is what happens when…

This is what happens when local law enforcement teaches all-stars that the rules don't apply to them. 

Two years ago MSU police pulled LJ Scott over and realized he was drinking and driving. He was not yet 21 (something not reported on but this article says he is 22 today) so there was zero excuse to look the other way and they would have looked at his ID to know his age. They let him go on his merry way. I'm just glad he did not kill anyone.

In July 2016, Scott was pulled over by Michigan State University Police in East Lansing for driving without his headlights turned on. According to a police report obtained by the Lansing State Journal, Scott told officers he and a friend were leaving a party. Scott admitted a red plastic cup in the center console that contained alcohol belonged to him.

The FAA allows it. 

10/10/2018 - 10:31am I remember as a kid in the…

I remember as a kid in the 90s the blimp would land at the AA airport next to our ball fields and they would let you hop on for a minute if you were lucky (while it was teathered). Good ol' pre 9/11 lack of security.

10/10/2018 - 10:24am I've heard you also get your…

I've heard you also get your bet back if you win, so $475 + $100, since that part is not necessarily intuitive.

10/09/2018 - 9:51pm Man, you have to have 10 min…

Man, you have to have 10 min for Bell. He mostly conveys who is is and what his experience has been like. If you love the team its definitely worth 10 minutes.

10/09/2018 - 1:49pm Wait, are you saying that…

Wait, are you saying that OSU shouldn't have been in the playoff during 2016 (see, outcome).

I'm okay with that.

10/09/2018 - 1:47pm Yeah I thought the article…

Yeah I thought the article was a good perspective from his hometown. It's nice to read that article, knowing how successful he's been. 

10/08/2018 - 10:31pm Wow is this your hill to die…

Wow is this your hill to die on? 

I would cry with happiness if the B1G went to no full screen interrupt your broadcast commercials with some side bar commercial pictures instead. 

Just get a bigger screen?

10/08/2018 - 10:29pm It sure does change things,…

It sure does change things, your one loss vs a top 3-4 team on the road at night, vs a 2 loss team.

Also you assume that if ND gets in Michigan does not. That's silly. 

I hope ND makes the playoffs so we can have a new trivia question: In what year did Michigan play and beat ND twice?

10/06/2018 - 6:00pm Well, at least they have…

Well, at least they have academics.

10/06/2018 - 5:57pm 6 min left up by 21 with…

6 min left up by 21 with Wisconsin next week, the best strategy is contain and no injuries. 

Do you think the younger players on the entire d line were subbed in because the starters just weren't cutting it in keeping Maryland below 100 yards for 3 quarters?
