12/07/2018 - 12:36pm Devin was an awesome player…

Devin was an awesome player for us. Even in the game-that-shall-not-be-mentioned, he played his ass off and looked like the only guy on defense who was the athletic superior of OSU's offensive players.

12/05/2018 - 4:23pm U-M, unfortunately, is not…

U-M, unfortunately, is not the same as OSU in this regard. Our margin for error is much smaller given our poorer in-state talent base and competition in-state with another Big Ten school. If OSU hired Rich Rodriguez or Brady Hoke tomorrow, they would go 11-1 next year. Their recruiting might fall off a little, but that wouldn't affect results for a couple years.

A cat could coach OSU to 10 wins.

Grab bag football coach of any caliber could coach them to 11 wins. 

Unless recruiting goes down, it doesn't matter who's coaching them.

Had our loss to Ohio State been respectable, then we would surely be in good position given the scenario you provided for this coming weekend.

Unfortunately, our loss to Ohio State was not respectable.

11/27/2018 - 9:07pm Devin played like an animal…

Devin played like an animal out there against OSU. He was excellent until he went out with injury. If we had 11 Devin Bush's out there, we would have crushed that game. We were athletically deficient at a couple of key positions, but middle linebacker was not one of them.

11/27/2018 - 12:39pm That's right. We got zero…

That's right. We got zero pressure on Ramsey. It was weird watching him just stand clean in the pocket and pick us apart. I got really worried about OSU after watching that.

Gotta go Rutgers there, amirite?

Image result for its a mystery to everyone

11/18/2018 - 8:22am Why the fuck couldn't we get…

Why the fuck couldn't we get any pressure on the QB given Indiana's trash O line? Ramsey had cleaner pockets than any quarterback we've played this year. 

11/16/2018 - 10:45am Revenge for taking us to OT…

Revenge for taking us to OT last year!

11/15/2018 - 9:11am "Indiana's pretty damn good,…

"Indiana's pretty damn good, so we better be engaged.  The Rutgers game . . . let's just say Rob has them going in the right direction." 

11/14/2018 - 3:40pm Argh! If Pacheco didn't…

Argh! If Pacheco didn't complete that pass we would've had a passing rutger! Anyway, if you only count their quarterback's passing yards, we had a passing rutger.

11/14/2018 - 3:38pm Higdon has been fantastic…

Higdon has been fantastic this year. He's very much earned this. Wish he would've gone off for like 250 yards against Rutger to pad his stats a little, but they seemed content to pack it in and let us air bomb them to death. 

11/10/2018 - 8:21pm Let him then forever be…

Let him then forever be known as Rob Ass

11/10/2018 - 7:41pm Hopefully it was the wind…

Hopefully it was the wind. Agree that Shea was pretty off on most deep balls.

11/05/2018 - 10:13am This is the correct answer…

This is the correct answer. Anything that increases our chances of getting a Big Ten championship at this point should be desired by all. 

11/04/2018 - 1:15am Except Indiana hasn't handed…

Except Indiana hasn't handed us our asses like Purdue did to OSU last month. Otherwise, same same.

11/01/2018 - 2:53pm Ah, I don't think we've had…

Ah, I don't think we've had a good, old-fashioned kicker appreciation thread since the epic gibbons thread related to our erstwhile, misbegotten kicker. One of my all-time favorites. Thanks for that, a2_electricboogaloo.

10/28/2018 - 10:59am I watched the PSU-Iowa game…

I watched the PSU-Iowa game yesterday, and it was . . .  not good football. The Iowa QB is the worst I've seen play so far this season, including Lewerke and Hornybook in their games against us. 

PSU is going to need some lucky breaks to beat us. I really hope our CBs and safeties can get their heads around and INTERCEPT THE DAMN BALL when it's in their hands--they will have ample opportunities to make plays on Saturday. 

10/26/2018 - 5:08pm Yeah, I remember grinding my…

Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Sparty's couch

10/26/2018 - 8:16am Not sure I'd be so quick to…

Not sure I'd be so quick to write off Penn State. They've had top 25 recruiting classes every year since Franklin came on board, including #6 last year. I don't know if Franklin is or isn't an inept in-game coach, but you'd have to be really inept to not field a competitive team with that kind of talent.

The talent pipeline would suggest they're only going to get better.

Orgeron's forehead to forearm thickness ratio must be the largest known to mankind

10/25/2018 - 7:45am For the same reason all of…

For the same reason all of MSU's cheap shots were flagged as offsetting personal fouls in the game--cowardice on the part of the officials. For some reason, the powers that be are afraid to just call a spade a spade and call out Sparty for the trash program they are. 

I'm upset that in Delaney's comments regarding the fine he didn't refer to MSU as a Trash program. 

10/25/2018 - 7:41am We'd likely play Alabama in…

We'd likely play Alabama in the semifinals, so we're only jumping past the last 4 games and the Big Ten Championship Game. No big deal then, agreed?

10/23/2018 - 10:21am Sooo, Gary held himself out,…

Sooo, Gary held himself out, and Harbaugh didn't let him travel with the team and isn't sure if he'll be back this season...

Do we really need to read between the lines here?

10/22/2018 - 8:53pm Makes sense that he'd be…

Makes sense that he'd be frustrated, since Stueber passed him on the depth chart. Kind of childish to make the transfer announcement right on the heels of the game, though, if you ask me. It's a tough call for a kid in Hudson's shoes, but no need to make the announcement the day after the program's biggest victory in the past few years. Just comes across as sour grapes. 

10/22/2018 - 8:46pm Considering his mom took to…

Considering his mom took to Facebook to break the news publicly by saying her son is "transferring to ensure he will have the opportunity to . . . fulfill all his goals and dreams," I'm guessing the answer to your question is "no." 

10/22/2018 - 8:39pm Based on mom's Facebook post…

Based on mom's Facebook post, it sure doesn't seem like she was the adult talking him off the ledge with this decision.

10/22/2018 - 7:56pm I had the same take

I had the same take

10/22/2018 - 2:20pm We're in good shape to…

We're in good shape to revert back to the normal dynamic. I posted in another thread that we currently have 42 four- or five-star (per 247 composite) guys on our roster, with 11 more in the 2019 class. MSU has 13 on the roster currently, with two more in the 2019 class. Starzz aren't the best measure of talent, but they're a decent one. And the comparison is not close. 

10/22/2018 - 1:17pm "It's not a product of their…

"It's not a product of their team but their [Trash] program"

10/22/2018 - 1:13pm Meyer has explicitly set up…

Meyer has explicitly set up and marketed his program as a path to the NFL, in the same way Calipari did at Kentucky. Bosa is just making good on Urban's sales pitch.

10/22/2018 - 11:19am MSU has 13 guys with 4-star…

MSU has 13 guys with 4-star recruiting rankings (247 composite) on their roster, plus two more committed in the 2019 class. 

U-M has 41 guys with 4-start recruiting rankings on the roster, plus 11 more on the way in the 2019 class. 

I can think of no reason why we should lose to them again in the foreseeable future. 

10/22/2018 - 10:50am Eh, I don't know. Purdue is…

Eh, I don't know. Purdue is averaging 39 points per game in conference play. Sparty better hold them below 20 if they want any chance at winning. Sparty put up 7, 21, and 19 in their past three games. Now they're missing their best offensive player. Could they win? Of course, but I think Purdue has to be the favorite. 

10/21/2018 - 9:29pm I disagree. I thought all…

I disagree. I thought all the offsetting fouls were cowardly on the refs' parts. They wanted to keep things from getting out of hand but also not affect the course of the game. Unfortunately, the preponderance of the offsetting foul calls were MSU committing genuine personal fouls and one of our guys reacting in a way that didn't merit a foul. Most of those situations should have been straight up PFs on Sparty. 

10/21/2018 - 8:06pm With Purdue's passing game…

With Purdue's passing game and MSU's secondary, I'm really surprised the Boilers aren't favored. Purdue is a pretty good team. Can't say the same about Sparty.

10/21/2018 - 8:01pm Are you just thinking of…

Are you just thinking of that one play that the announcers replayed and singled out Gentry? 

Anyway, Willekes family is poor, so it doesn't matter. Your family is poor, Kenny. Your family's POOR. 

I don't like Kenny anymore, he just doesn't communicate...

10/21/2018 - 4:34pm No, AP. Sparty got 8 points…

No, AP. Sparty got 8 points in the AP poll, and they were all due to Mike Barber's insane decision to put them at 18!

10/21/2018 - 2:43pm Haha, Mike Barber is also…

Haha, Mike Barber is also the ONLY voter to give MSU a vote in the top 25. And he put them at 18!!!

Shouldn't that trigger his dismissal from the panel or something?

P.S. - He's a Rutgers grad, so...

10/21/2018 - 11:37am This is so true. We've been…

This is so true. We've been favored by at least seven points in all four of the MSU games Harbaugh has coached. There's a reason for that--we've been a better, stronger, more talented team every year, and we will be every year. MSU is extremely lucky to have won two of those games. Play each of those games ten times, and we win nine out of ten. 

It's back to normal. From 1997 to 2007, MSU was the favorite in this game once (2005). They were the favorite once against RR and three out of four against Hoke. Back to normal now. Back to normal where their only wins are one-out-of-ten type performances. 

Dantonio and every Spartan fan and player knows this in their hearts.

10/21/2018 - 9:38am "See, I never did things…

"See, I never did things just to do them. Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody's logo like its something to do? I got a little more sense than that.

Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Sparty's logo."

10/21/2018 - 9:20am And Michigan has been the…

And Michigan has been the favorite by at least 7 points (and as many as 24.5) in every one of those four games. It took unbelievable luck for MSU to pull the upset in the two games they won.

10/20/2018 - 11:26pm Haha, hilarious to hear how…

Haha, hilarious to hear how PISSED Herbstreet was the whole fourth quarter. Couldn't even pretend to hold it in. Beautiful.

10/20/2018 - 9:49pm He's makes pretty good…

He's makes pretty good throws, but I've never seen him deal with pressure in the pocket. He has all day to survey the field and comfortably loft passes where he likes. It's like he's playing 7-on-7. 

Hopefully we can put some heat on him and see how accurate he is with bodies in his face.

10/20/2018 - 6:43pm I found something…

I found something interesting in all the talk about Dantoni's performance against the spread versus U-M. Despite the shitshow of the RichRod and Hoke eras, we were the favorites eight of the past 11 meetings. We've always had more talent, even through the bleak years. We're just a better team and better program that them, pretty much every year. Even during their best run ever and our worst. 

10/20/2018 - 6:32pm Love that Chase is calling…

Love that Chase is calling them Little Brother. They are that and always will be. MSU is lucky as hell to not be 0-4 against Harbaugh.

10/20/2018 - 6:23pm Eh, until Sparty's last…

Eh, until Sparty's last drive, almost all the boneheaded PFs were two-way. The refs seemed to have resolved to give two-ways fouls for minor things to keep the game under control. Sparty seemed to be more at fault in most cases, but the refs just gave two-way fouls to avoid affecting the flow of the game.
