Only if Harbaugh commits to actually throwing the ball to them. Hopefully, bringing Gattis in is the move to a more wide open offense.

12/30/2018 - 12:57pm I can’t stand the guy and…

I can’t stand the guy and agree with the opinion that the game is passing him by, but to say that Izzo lays an egg in the postseason is pretty ridiculous; the dude has taken MSU to 7 Final Fours.

11/29/2018 - 3:13pm It was cool to see THS and…

It was cool to see THS and wife attended the game last night. The Knicks had a game against the Sixers and Tim Sr decided to go the M/UNC game instead. Sorry, son. Seems like Beilein made a real connection with the family.

11/27/2018 - 2:46pm It's been a long time since…

It's been a long time since Moeller was coach so it's hard to argue what his overall tendencies were in tough game situations, but the most iconic play from his tenure was The Catch on 4th & 1 up 3 in the 4th qtr. Also, in the 1988 HOF Bowl vs Alabama going for the TD down 3 in the 4th qtr on 4th & 3. And throwing for the 2-point conversion down 1 instead of going for the tie vs MSU in 1990 when Howard was interfered with.

11/26/2018 - 2:19pm Well, if the results against…

Well, if the results against Penn State last year and this year are any indication, hopefully Don Brown spends the next 12 months frequently waking up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night and prepares better for OSU next year.

10/26/2018 - 1:47pm So you're the fan of The…

So you're the fan of The Californians. I'm not one to crap on SNL but The Californians must be fun for the cast to perform because that's the one reason I can think of as to why it keeps getting rolled out. It's always way too long and gets very few laughs. It was actually perfect to include it in the 40th Anniversary show.

Black Jeopardy is great. The Tom Hanks and Black Panther editions were excellent.

10/26/2018 - 1:25pm Yes, there's a photo of him…

Yes, there's a photo of him and some of the other guys in the locker room after posing with the trophy and DPJ is doing the Paul Bunyan pose again.

Check this out, Denard Robinson never tied his shoes.

10/22/2018 - 3:06pm They cut away from it so…

They cut away from it so quickly during the broadcast, I only caught it out of the corner of my eye live but confirmed it watching the highlights afterward. There's also a shot of DPJ in the locker room recreating the pose while posing with the trophy and a bunch of the other guys. Good stuff.

10/22/2018 - 12:09pm Easy fellas, think of the…

Easy fellas, think of the CTE.

10/17/2018 - 1:30pm The question I have is what…

The question I have is what’s the shittiest weather Shea has ever played in? He went to high school in FL and spent two years in Mississippi. I’m guessing he’s played in rain but probably hasn’t played in too many games below 50 degrees. My assumption is the glove on the throwing hand is a function of not being used to playing in colder weather.

10/15/2018 - 4:18pm The weirdest thing about…

The weirdest thing about them being selected as guest pickers, aside from having no connection to either school, was they weren't even in the area prior the game as far as I could figure. They didn't play a show the night or even a couple days before. They have a residency at some club in Vegas and they're based in L.A.

10/14/2018 - 9:52am The '98 game was awesome. M…

The '98 game was awesome. M held Ron Dayne to 53 yards rushing. He went the wrong way on three different failed handoffs and the UW fans sitting behind me and my buddy melted down spectacularly. After the third one, one the guys yelled, "Have another Twinkie, Tubby!" 

It's mind blowing to think about now, but Lloyd Carr was 9-0 against Top-10 teams after that game.

10/09/2018 - 5:03pm Well, Dantonio said he's not…

Well, Dantonio said he's not going anywhere because he believes that MSU is a "destination."

10/09/2018 - 4:22pm "We named the dog Ace."


"We named the dog Ace."

"I've got a lot of fond memories of that dog."

10/02/2018 - 1:30pm My sister and I got the…

My sister and I got the talking ALF stuffed doll for Christmas one year. My dad thought it was hysterical. The best parts of ALF are: his given name is Gordon Shumway; he eats cats; he’s from Melmack; and the one episode he parodied Tom Cruise lip-syncing Old Time Rock N Roll from Risky Business.

MurderWolv is Dave Brandon saying “I told you so.”

How does Brian not remember the field goal kicking exploits of Hayden Epstein?

09/24/2018 - 1:33pm The Lions did look good but…

The Lions did look good but if there’s one team that Patricia should be prepared to play and be able to scheme against, it’s the Patriots 8 months removed from coaching there. It would be nice to see the Lions keep this going but also keep in mind the Patriots’ defense has been terrible so far this season.

Shocking to say, but I didn’t feel that way watching the Bears last night.

Are we still doing “phrasing”?

“As much separation as you can get, and a really good lay by Shea. Right on the money. Good protection again on that one. Just like you drew it up.”

In about two years, 80% of the country is going to be sharing the login of their former next-door neighbor’s grandma, who has no idea her cable bill is being automatically deducted from her checking account.

I would pump the brakes on how well you assume Shea might have played against MSU. Has Shea ever played in weather that crappy? If not, we have no idea how well he throws a slippery, water-soaked ball. Just because he’s way been way better than O’Korn to this point doesn’t mean he’s going to fair any better in the rain and/or the cold for that matter.

09/08/2018 - 5:40pm One step closer to the…

One step closer to the mythical State Championship. Luckily, we get to duck Eastern this season.

09/07/2018 - 2:37pm Brian's "Ed is not a radio…

Brian's "Ed is not a radio personality" cuts deep.

If memory serves, the Armadillos was the mascot of fictional Texas State in Necessary Roughness.

09/05/2018 - 2:55pm The Va-Tech and Florida…

The Va-Tech and Florida games don't count as road wins because they were played at neutral sites.

09/04/2018 - 10:08am I feel like that is usually…

I feel like that is usually the case. How often do sons of famous athletes exceed the accomplishments of their fathers? Steph Curry, Ken Griffey Jr, Cal Ripkin Jr, and Clay Matthews come to mind but there are hundreds (thousands?) that don't measure up: Jeffery Jordan, Jordan Dumars, Mark Harmon. I think it's pretty safe to say that the odds are long that Tom Brady's kid wins a Super Bowl and one of Desmond Howard's sons wins a Heisman. Tyrone Wheatley Jr just left the program.

08/28/2018 - 3:49pm I'm all for trying to…

I'm all for trying to mandate P5 matchups, but I'd much rather see SEC teams plays Arkansas than the late-season 1-AA cakewalk that half the conference gets each year. These are your Week 12 games for the powers-that-be this season:

Alabama v Citadel, Auburn v Liberty, Florida v Idaho, Georgia v UMass, TAMU v UAB, LSU v Rice, and S. Carolina v Chattanooga

06/11/2018 - 5:44pm American War by Omar El…

American War by Omar El Akkad is a good fiction book that came out last year that tells the story of the second American Civil War from the point of view of one family caught up in the conflict. Set in the middle part of this century.

05/02/2018 - 8:30pm Beilein keeps it together,

Beilein keeps it together, but I hadn't noticed Luke Yaklich completely losing his cool on the sidelines before. So much fun.

04/24/2018 - 1:54pm I've never been to Australia,

I've never been to Australia, but I'm going to guess I'd rather be in Adelaide than in Lincoln, NE too.

04/17/2018 - 10:01am Groninger

My roommate and I called him The Bricklayer. We came up with an idea that the marketing staff should hand out maize foam bricks so fans could build things during the game based on number of shots he missed. Apparently he was a nice guy though.

03/28/2018 - 2:50pm Probably has nothing to do with

What Izzo knows they got away with while they were on campus.

03/28/2018 - 2:38pm That line

"We were in pajamas the other day, so it's not a physical thing," probably needs to be the new site tagline after basketball season ends. 

03/22/2018 - 1:34pm That's ironic.

That's ironic.

03/19/2018 - 3:08pm Once skinny jeans

Came back into fashion, short shorts weren't far behind.

03/16/2018 - 1:55pm My guess is CBS/TBS didn't

My guess is CBS/TBS didn't want to lose that coveted Montana Mountain Time prime-time audience.

03/16/2018 - 7:45am Correct. Dutcher joined

Correct. Dutcher joined Fischer’s staff in ‘89-‘90.

03/08/2018 - 1:52pm The Izzo gif

Needs to be titled, "Thoughts and prayers to the victims."

02/06/2018 - 4:45pm I see what you did there.

I see what you did there.

02/05/2018 - 1:37pm I don't think so.

It looked like it deflected behind the players toward the back of the end zone. Dorsett was near the goal line, IIRC.

02/05/2018 - 1:21pm In all 3 of the Pats' SB losses

with Brady at QB, he's led a 4th-quarter go-ahead drive only to see the defense give it right back.

01/29/2018 - 2:46pm The Drive for 5

Late 80s-early 90s Detroit Drive. 4 championships, and 6 consecutive Arena Bowls in 6 seasons.

12/11/2017 - 2:25pm Such a weird play

I still don't understand how that play resulted in a torn ACL especially considering his leg wasn't planted on the ground when he got hit.

12/11/2017 - 1:12pm John Faulk?

Who on the M football support staff has what appears to be a DuckTales tattoo on their left hand?

11/30/2017 - 2:08pm NC State, two years ago.

NC State, two years ago. Prior to that, it was at Bradley in 2012. Outside of the B1G/ACC Challenge M hardly ever plays true road non-conference games. Crazy.

11/21/2017 - 2:50pm You don't think Harbaugh

You don't think Harbaugh would choose the neck Sharpie?

11/20/2017 - 2:30pm This is probably the number

This is probably the number one reason Gruden hasn't returned to coaching. The dude knows he would have to personally interact with referees on a weekly basis. Don't even mention the tuck rule to him.

11/20/2017 - 2:21pm 0-2 in '87, and 4-0 in Bo's

0-2 in '87, and 4-0 in Bo's last two years. But those were the Perles Spartans and Bruce/Cooper Buckeyes.
