It doesn't make sense, but what can they do, give him another season to unravel further?  (I wouldn't mind)

With OSU's issues Michigan isn't the only loss they are facing.

This is, wow.

O..M..G.. did it PAIN Gerd to write that column!  

clever snark throughout, but almost openly hoping for Devin Bush to be injured, not cool Gerd...

10/22/2018 - 8:58pm They knew.  Everything on…

They knew.  Everything on game day is scripted and everyone knows what time to be where.   I wouldn't have thought Mark would deliberately try and provoke a confrontation this way but it sure looks like that's exactly what he did.  Did he think Bush would assault someone so they could call the police and have him arrested?

mom posted her son's decision on her FB page?  Is this the new normal (honest if dumb question)

I don't even know how to speculate on what the reasons might be, just wish the kid well in his future endeavors.

Great diary as always - your enjoyment as you wrote this up shines through!

People do see.  A couple of non-football friends of mine watched the game yesterday, and they saw right through the innocent red rover walk.

Yes, another commenter was worried that Day would bail if OSU didn't promote him soon.

10/21/2018 - 10:09am This is more time than I…

This is more time than I have ever spent reading 11 warriors threads.  The thread off to the right of the one posted, about Urban missing fall camp, is interesting.  Some fans defend Meyer and say he had a difficult coaching job to do after being "thrown under the bus", others blame him for keeping Smith around for so long.. one person said Meyer coached last night like he had been blindfolded and dropped off at a game seeing the team for the first time. Many comments pointed to a difference in culture affected by the off field drama and that Urban might be on his last season there. There was a comment somewhere about trying to get Luke Fickell back, which was hilarious.

27 captains? agreed with the comment that diffuses leadership on the team. Of course their best captain has left the school entirely.

Also OSU fans already saying they might sell their tickets to The Game... make me an offer!

I say they knew exactly what they were doing.

10/20/2018 - 11:24pm Buh-bye Urban.... sorry you…

Buh-bye Urban.... sorry you don't have the pet refs with you tonight... sorry you couldn't run up and down the sideline waving your arms at the crowd....actually obviously not sorry

How did that offense lose to EMU?

bit shocked he didn't go for 2.

10/20/2018 - 8:16pm See... all Dantonio wanted,…

See... all Dantonio wanted, was for us to respect them enough, to take them seriously, and really spread them all over the field like roadkill.  Our coaches and players were happy to deliver.

10/20/2018 - 8:13pm They tried to break Ruiz's…

They tried to break Ruiz's leg and then when our player caught on and pushed the dirt Sparty, we got offsetting penalties.  I don't think you have to worry much about some trash talk after the win.

MSU and their fans will just have to take what they dish out.

I was wondering that too Rose.

Very classy of their fans to dump on their QB who is almost all of the offense they have, and who is regressing behind their line play.

Where are all the Spartan trolls at?

If Dantonio is hanging his hat on favorable officiating it won't be enough this year.  

10/19/2018 - 9:38pm C'mon, Boutros, don't hide…

C'mon, Boutros, don't hide yourself, flaunt yourself.  M 34 MSU 10.  if they get a TD in pure garbage time at the end then 34-17.

10/19/2018 - 9:28pm The league won't go to as…

The league won't go to as much trouble to favor a two loss, inconsistent Sparty team.  If we do indeed dominate on both sides of the ball, we have a win.

One school of thought is that rain lessens the home field advantage

hoping to hear "..and he is SACKED by Chase Winovich" in a little over 24 hours!

johnb, if you get stressed out to where you feel it's not healthy, have stuff to do that is physical, mental or both.  Bring home a boring work project, rake leaves, cook food to eat or freeze, organize a room, anything.  There is no away game we have lost that has not resulted in my getting something done.  Plus the distraction will keep your blood pressure in check.

This was an excellent read, thanks for posting.

Enjoyable read.  Kudos for never wavering in your fandom - having that instilled by Bob Ufer lasts a lifetime.

Now.  Without looking it up, I can tell you that minimum wage in 1977 was $2.30.  I don't want to tell you how I know :-)

Either of the two extremes is troubling to me.

10/18/2018 - 12:19pm I have had almost no…

I have had almost no sickness and fear this week - with no prediction as to whether we win this or not, somehow the situation just feels more stable.

The 17 point comeback on the road indicates a different team character this year.

Was Wisconsin ranked too high or are things falling into place? 

Sure Dantonio is a good coach.  Harbaugh and his assistants are developing this team and appearing to fix problems in a systematic way - which is why, again, for the first time in years I don't feel nauseous in the days preceding this game.  Players talked in the pressers about the importance of closing the deal - something MSU can count as a strength; we are getting there.

Also the ref situation seems to be less of a burden compared to last year.  Again, some credit to coaching and player execution, penalties were recognized as a problem and fixed. As far as Delany, I don't think there will be the same incentive for one-sided officiating with a strong Michigan team.

too funny Hatter... and I almost skipped this thread

the injuries are completely different.

Bosa can't play, nothing for NFL scouts to see until he completes rehab.

10/16/2018 - 10:38pm He's just doing some spin…

He's just doing some spin-prep this time, since he knows his team's weaknesses vs. Michigan's strengths this year.   He'll throw everything they have at us, and given MSU's tendency to hang from a ledge by their fingernails, I hope we break their spirit by halftime.

I got the snark aspect, was still struck by the weird tone of his writing, then again, I was probably reading too much into it.  He's been hedging this year, as if he's managing expectations.

Enjoyable to see that from the OSU side once again

10/16/2018 - 12:30am yes, the tone verges on…

yes, the tone verges on oddly reverent in the opening "one of only two teams in the country to beat Wisconsin" and continues from there.

 

10/15/2018 - 7:21pm Don't beat yourself up about…

Don't beat yourself up about any preseason hunches that may or may not have panned out.  You were keeping expectations in check and there's nothing wrong with that.  Further, your hunches weren't based on anything irrational.  Many others felt the same way.

I sure as heck felt the same way. Because of preseason trepidation, the team development this fall has been all the sweeter.   Saturday night's game is one I will remember. 

Hornibrook isn't bad and doesn't deserve the ire of his fanbase; he simply had not encountered a defense like ours yet this year.

Urban Meyer is such a lowlife.

Thanks, Pete.  Still won't get a click from me though.

I think you were on the money, we were pretty aggressive with some interesting plays and SPOT ON about our D shutting them down!!

what age qualifies one to be a blue hair, asking for a friend?

And YEAH the stadium was rocking tonight

Scowl, Mork, scowl !

Urban was looking pretty scowly himself, a few minutes ago but OSU is not going to lose to Minny.

When the Preview is posted, it means I can leave work.  Thanks Brian!

GO BLUE!!

Night game, here we come...

Freep redeemed themselves with unrelenting coverage of Molester State U last year.  Between the Freep and News, not a week went by without actual news reporting as events unfolded in EL..... and some editorial pieces too.  Well done by both papers.

10/11/2018 - 12:56pm A cold Fall night, Boom!

A cold Fall night, Boom!

Goes the D. Brown's D, that is.

This one's for Peters.

It's better to have realistic expectations of the opponent's capabilities. Much prefer Seth's analysis to... yesterday, driving home, hearing Nick say.... well not much of anything really, other than "have to win the next three or else"

Accepting help while living life on his terms, is what I hope for him

Isn't this the player that was game to game decision due to injury?  Or was that someone else.

Thanks for posting this (although the thread might not survive, I hope it does). First time ever hearing the infamous Valenti.  He is a raving lunatic.  Had trouble sleeping last night, gave up and starting reading the thread on my phone... then played the clip. Something about his monotone ranting and yelling put me to sleep within a couple of minutes.  Got 6 hours of unbroken sleep.  All I remember is he wants to fire everyone.
