10/18/2018 - 2:13pm I wouldn't take Lewerke over…

I wouldn't take Lewerke over any of our current QB, but he is more than good enough to beat us.  He's the reason they beat us last year with his dual threat ability. 

MSU is in a tough spot.  They need his legs to beat us, but our D might break his leg again and send them to the Quick Lane Bowl for the holidays.

10/18/2018 - 2:09pm Connor Cook had future NFL…

Connor Cook had future NFL draft picks blocking for him.  Lewerke is regressing into a shell of himself thanks to the OL.

That's Jayru Campbell.  And he is doing pretty well at Ferris.

So you're saying Sparty will run the sprinklers all Friday night?

10/17/2018 - 2:56pm If we finish 10-2, I would…

If we finish 10-2, I would hope that loss is PSU.  I don't think I could stomach an offseason where we beat MSU and OSU, but lost to a DeBord coached offense.

10/17/2018 - 2:54pm PSU struggled to beat App…

PSU struggled to beat App State, struggled with Pitt for over two quarters, and struggled with Illinois for three quarters.  The only reason the MSU score was a shock was because of the #8 ranking they had but did not deserve.  

10/17/2018 - 1:52pm For recruiting and national…

For recruiting and national perspective, yes OSU is always most important.  But the MSU game is most important only because of the ND loss.  For us to make the CFP, we can't lose any more games.  If not for that, we could sustain a loss and all of our goals would still be in play.

We must have this game.

Umm, do you know how this works?

10/17/2018 - 1:49pm I hope that chemistry last…

I hope that chemistry last week returns on Saturday.  Put five passes in our DBs hands and at least two other those are Pick Six's.

10/17/2018 - 1:45pm With MSU, 0.0000001% turns…

With MSU, 0.0000001% turns to 100% thanks to the refs.  I could imagine some BS like, "There were 1.9 seconds left on the clock, not 1.0."

I don't know man.  I love his dick move blowing up in his face, but it's like why do it?  There's no NFL tiebreakers to play for.  Kick the XP, try the onside kick, and hope the refs do something stupid to let you get one shot at the end zone.

When did holding become kicking?

10/17/2018 - 1:33pm Honestly, I heard the 2019…

Honestly, I heard the 2019 draft will be hard on guys with only four letters in their last name.  That's what the data forecasts.

10/17/2018 - 9:37am Funny thing is that if MSU…

Funny thing is that if MSU just kicks the XP, they would have been down 6.  Recover an onside kick and they're a Hail Mary away from sending us all off the nearest cliff.  I don't think I've heard many people bring up that coaching blunder by Dantonio.

How about 2006 defense with the 2018 defensive coordinator.

But he did say the Ayatollah can't recruit, so......

10/16/2018 - 12:32pm Love the guy.  He cavorts…

Not a bad guy.  He has love for our blog expats in Bolivia.

Mr. @evoespueblo I wanted to thank you for your support of the #IranianPeople at the #UNSecurityCouncil . You have always been a loyal friend of the Iranian People; send my regards to your staff and the lovely people of Bolivia.

10/16/2018 - 12:23pm The more Winovich balls out…

The more Winovich balls out without Gary in the lineup, the more money Gary loses.  Maybe Gary is still a top-10 pick if he doesn't play again, but with Bosa and Christian Wilkins also in this draft, Gary may slide down the draft board to later in the 1st round.

10/16/2018 - 10:52am Noon kick. 

Noon kick. 

10/15/2018 - 10:44pm I'm kinda torn about that…

I'm kinda torn about that play though.  I'd hate to see DCaf get injured on a gimmick play, but it looked like if Shea threw the ball to him, he could've had a big gain.  Dude showed his wheels on the read option, so it wouldn't be crazy to imagine him catching a screen pass and getting a chunk of yards.

 

10/15/2018 - 1:59pm That game was in Columbus…

That game was in Columbus last year.  I'll take only a 20-point win partially because I wouldn't put it past Dantonio's guys to cheap shot us with the game out of hand.

10/15/2018 - 9:55am Remember, it's only seven…

Remember, it's only seven weekends, six when we play in Columbus.  I don't know what their money situation is looking like, but if that's not a concern, then the 3 hour drive should be something they can overcome. 

10/14/2018 - 9:25pm I was at the Gameday…

I was at the Gameday location at EL in 1997.  Trust me when I say the true losers were the ones trying to get their 15 seconds of fame.  It was so bad that Chris Fowler left his chair during a commercial break and threatened the crowd to send in the police if they kept throwing crap at the studio set.

10/14/2018 - 12:53pm Pep called an excellent game…

Pep called an excellent game.  We stopped ourselves on offense when we tried the gimmick plays, which may have been scripted.  Also, using the short passing game and read option were two wrinkles I didn't expect. 

TBH, I'm excited to see what new wrinkles they have for step two of the revenge tour.

Do people still refer to the khakis?  That feels so 2016...like his intro.

You deserve a few zeroes at the end of your MGoPoints for that one!

Methinks you may get blocked.  LOL

Fun, sad fact about me getting old.  I've been on this site almost ten years and didn't know what SIAP stood for until last year.

Since I'm bearing my soul, I should also note that I have no Facebook or Twitter account and use my wife's cell phone instead of buying my own.

I've never wanted a post to come true more than this one.

10/10/2018 - 3:53pm No way they run for 200…

No way they run for 200 against us.  They got 180 on us last year thanks to a couple big runs.  We can rush for 150+, but only if we open up the offense early and loosen up their defense.

10/10/2018 - 3:50pm Whatever you do, stream the…

Whatever you do, stream the local news coverage as opposed to watching the national news.  The locals cover these storms way better than the national guys since they're more concerned about getting the important information out there, not just showing people how fast the winds are with their spectrometer.

There was an accompanying article that highlighted Charbonnet rising in the rankings.  It's about midway through the article.

I find the Spartan logo next to his name confusing.

EDIT: Also, because the universe doesn't want us to have nice things, I fully expect Dobbs to decommit as MSU's season craters and end up in Columbus.

With the state of Wisconsin's secondary, I would welcome that challenge.

10/10/2018 - 2:11pm I can't tell you how many…

I can't tell you how many times I was pissed in the 90s when we'd beat OSU and still end up in a second-tier bowl while the Buckeyes went to better bowl games.  The wins in 1993, 1995 and 1996 were bittersweet because I couldn't understand where that performance was all season.

Fall break?  Is this a new thing?  I don't remember an official fall break when I was in school.

10/10/2018 - 11:37am If we have CFP aspirations,…

If we have CFP aspirations, it's the most important game to date.  But in terms of winning the B1G, it's not more important than our divisional games, including Rutgers.

10/10/2018 - 11:36am I think it was the Iowa loss…

I think it was the Iowa loss that set the program back.  If we were 11-1 with a controversial loss at OSU in OT, we may still have made the CFP over Washington who had a home loss to USC on their record.

10/10/2018 - 11:33am Since he's probably not…

Since he's probably not coming here, I hope he stays out of the B1G.  Go to the SEC (not UGA) and stay off our schedule, unless it's the CFP.

10/10/2018 - 11:21am Live in Michigan and pay our…

Live in Michigan and pay our car insurance rates, and you'll see why people drive around without insurance.  I wouldn't own a car in Detroit if we had anything resembling a competent public transportation system.

I owned a car in DC for a year that couldn't go in reverse because the subway took me everywhere I needed to go.  Anywhere I drove was within a five mile radius and I never had to back out of a parking space.

10/10/2018 - 10:58am We won two years ago and the…

We won two years ago and the 2015 game never happened so I'm not sure which game you're referring to. 

If he plays, I'm good with it.  He's followed the path of regressions like Malik McDowell so I see him as a net positive for us if he's on the field.  I'd rather they try to run with him as opposed to Lewerke being a dual-threat force like he was last year against us.

My guess is we're at +475 because we don't have a mascot, therefore no easily accessible headgear for the pick.

Ken Daniels was already established on CBC as a solid announcer.  I'd love to see them make a play for Matt Vasgersian or Dan Shulman.  Matt can still call Sunday Night Baseball like Jon Miller used to do back in the day.

You're being ignorant.  Big difference.  If you spoke with knowledge, then you'd know those crimes you speak of are happening in neighborhoods miles away from downtown...well away from the highly policed entertainment district.

Using your logic, people are playing Russian Roulette by going to games in Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, Oakland...hell, any major city with a high crime rate.

No, he's not still employed.  He quit in January.

I'll take a win of any point margin.  This is not MD playing their fifth string QB again.

My 4K HDTV and the ability to eat and drink without breaking the bank is good enough for me.

The only way to reverse the attendance drop is to blackout home games and schools won't do that.  Since that would damage TV revenue for the schools, that will never happen.

09/26/2018 - 7:54pm I don't know man.  One win…

I don't know man.  One win over the worst Patriots team since Brady took over does not show progress.  I hope I'm just uber pessimistic because it's the Lions.

09/26/2018 - 7:52pm The Ford family has been…

The Ford family has been cheap with the Lions.  Russ Thomas and Chuck Schmidt were terrible, cheap GMs.  They are the worst owners in professional football.  If not for the Packers being complete idiots and drafting Mandarich, the Lions would still have zero playoff wins in the Super Bowl era.

They are so cheap that they hired family friends to run the franchise.  Tom Lewand should have been nowhere near player development & personnel decisions.  This will not be a Super Bowl contending team until the Ford family sells the franchise, which will never happen unless Martha is caught on tape using every ethnic slur in the book. 

09/26/2018 - 7:46pm This has been rumored for…

This has been rumored for over a year.  Chris Ilitch does not want to own the Tigers.  Dan Gilbert wants to own the Tigers and expand his downtown empire.  It's just a matter of time before this happens.

09/24/2018 - 10:55pm It's very inconceivable to…

It's very inconceivable to think LSU could beat either of those teams.  Cajun Hoke is going to lose by 2+ touchdowns to both teams.

09/18/2018 - 11:41am Haven't had Boomerang for…

Haven't had Boomerang for years.  They would play all the old Hanna Barbera stuff, like Laff-a-lympics and Yogi Bear.

October was always Scooberang with non-stop Scooby Doo all month.  That. Was. Awesome.
