She must have the lowest of expectations.

"no one thinks MSU is a top tier program nationally"

Whatever makes you sleep at night. However, since Dantonio became coach in 2007, MSU has averaged slightly more than 9 wins per season, won 3 B1G championships, participated in 3 B1G championship games, won the Rose Bowl, won the Cotton Bowl, and appeared in a CFP semifinal. Sounds pretty "top tier" to me.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - for the "leaders and best", this is a shitty-ass website.

Too bad the search committee wasn't aware of this one before Harbaugh was hired:

"I've been known to come through on occasion."

I haven't checked in here in a while. Man, this site is awful. It's no more user friendly than the previous version. I expect more from the "leaders and best".

The Duke-MSU game was tied with 4 minutes left and Duke ended up winning by 7.

6 wins and 3 losses with wins coming by an average of 4.5 points and losses by an average of 15.6 points.

Pointe du Hoc. I did a 2-day D-Day tour in 2014 and took a ton of photos. If I could upload to the site I'd post some.

Once the official spotted the ball, there was no need to measure. They knew that it had to just reach the 15-yard-line since the series started on the 25.

FWIW, this was the same crew that did the MSU-OSU game last season as well as the 2013 B1G Championship game.

I appreciate it. I can understand downvoting/banning trolls. However, that wasn't my intent with this thread. C'est la vie.

Lol. MGoBloggers' panties sure seem to get bunched up a lot over a "non rival".

And? Thought that was well known. Just wanted to pass along the message. It's not that big a deal. One of the mods over there is willing to organize the game. I'm fairly confident nobody would get killed. Might even make some new friends.

I'm guessing that there are enough people on both sides who would be serious enough to have an actual game. Could be fun.

08/23/2016 - 2:11pm If you want to complain about

If you want to complain about playing MSU twice in a row on the road and also tout the all-time record against them, then you must remember that early in the rivalry something like 30 out of 35 games were played in Ann Arbor.

He's one of the acts at a music festival I'll be attending this summer. Had never heard of him before the lineup was announced. After listening to the couple of songs I could find by him online, I decided his set will be a good time to take a break and hit a couple of the nearby craft breweries.

He meant to say "count" returning starters.

10/29/2015 - 9:20am Since you're new to these

Since you're new to these parts, I'll pass on a little info. Not sure if you're on your own, but if so, hopefully you've found some people to hang out with. This article is pretty accurate regarding "Minnesota Nice". In general, the locals tend to stay close to their childhood friends and it often takes a while to crack the inner circle. Of course that's not the case with everyone - just fairly common. I imagine there is a local UM alumni group - probably a good place to start.

Yes, that angle gives a good view of the block/push.

10/19/2015 - 4:46pm I repeatedly watched replays

I repeatedly watched replays from a couple different angles and could clearly see the left guard turn and block/push the defender into the snapper as he's trying to run past. Fire up YouTube and check it out.

10/19/2015 - 4:10pm No, he's right. The defender

No, he's right. The defender lined up in the gap and was pushed into the snapper. It would be one thing if MSU was setting up a punt return and they wanted to take out the offensive line. However, they were going balls out trying to get to O'Neill to block the punt. Intentionally hitting the center would only delay getting to the punter.

Watch the play again from the end zone point of view. In fact, in the photo above you can see that he is not lined up over the center.

10/19/2015 - 3:07pm Actually that's not what

Actually that's not what happened. The defender lined up in the gap and was pushed into the snapper. It would be one thing if MSU was setting up a punt return and they wanted to take out the offensive line. However, they were going balls out trying to get to O'Neill to block the punt. Intentionally hitting the center would only delay getting to the punter.

10/19/2015 - 1:46pm The defender was trying to

The defender was trying to split the gap. On his own he might have made contact with the snapper's shoulder, but he certainly would not have bowled him over. He was trying to get to O'Neill, not take out the snapper.

And I agree that Bolden shouldn't have been ejected.

10/19/2015 - 1:21pm Yes, it's a penalty to

Yes, it's a penalty to initiate contact with the snapper. However, in this case, the defender was pushed into the snapper by the left guard. Rewatch the play from the end zone view and it's pretty clear.

10/19/2015 - 12:26pm After rewatching the video

After rewatching the video several times, it's clear that the defender is trying to split the gap but is pushed into the snapper by the left guard. The end zone view shows this better than the sideline view.

Dantonio was speaking to Spartans fans (not the media, not Michigan fans) in reference to the Michigan fans who were giving the finger and yelling insults near the tunnel earlier.

09/18/2015 - 5:27pm Sounds like you care more

Sounds like you care more about how these recruits perform as pros than in college. How many of Beilein's 5* recruits (or any recruits for that matter) have made a meaningful impact in the NBA? Who cares? Izzo and Beilein are both great coaches. Their jobs are to win college basketball games and develop fine men both on and off the court. Most of their recruits will not play in the NBA, let alone be all-stars.

To be fair, Dawson signed with the Clippers and averaged 12.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.3 blocks and an assist in the summer league. It's yet to be seen how his NBA career pans out.

It's will probably have to be Lucas or Aiken. Simpson is supposed to announce today and hasn't visited Michigan.

FYI, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Izzo met with Winston this morning at school.
