    Congrats to the Spartans for a well deserved overtime Victory.....:)

    I personally think the team munched on gorilla cookies at halftime.

    I'm so happy for Cousins and the rest of the seniors.

    Great win for the program.

    Did you intend this post for one of the Demarcus Cousins threads?

    Fun game to watch. A real FG kicking battle royale in OT.

    They've had two 11 win seasons in a row. That is outstanding, considering all but 1 starter on defense is returning. They have a big leadership role to fill with the QB leaving. If they win 10 games next season, they can proudly say they are an elite team. Nemo gets all the credit here at PF for believing in these guys.......:humble:

    nemo, I must admit you've shown great confidence in these guys for a couple of years now. Kudos.

    Yes. Cousins will be greatly missed.

    Beat Boise State in 2012!

    Hopefully.......I can offer a positive outlook for the team next season as I've done for the last two.

    I'll get back with you on that one.

    Beating Boise State will be as easy as Michigan beating Alabama in 2012.

    I only saw the last few minutes of the first half of the Michigan game, but as everyone said, even at that point everything fell their way. Still...it fell.

    So now it is probable (?) that both MSU and U of M begin the season ranked in the top ten. MSU probably loses their spot in the first game of the season losing to Boise State (Both teams will have new quarterbacks, but the brilliant Peterson always seems to out think the opposing coach..he can't help it if his field goal kickers suck, lol).

    I don't think Michigan will hold their spot once the Big Ten season gets under way. But you never know.

    Cousins is the 6th ranked quarterback in the 2012 draft. Wiggles My sources tells me that the Eagles are looking to draft a "future franchise quarterback). Would Kirk Cousins be considered one of those? Would he fit the eagles scheme? I'm not an X's and O's guy. nemo, anyone??

    I'd be excited if they drafted Cousins. Maybe they will get him with a 3rd round pick they might get for Samuel? He is projected to go in 3rd or 4tgh round.

    There 1st pick is 15th overall, I believe. They always surprise people. Every time. So let's say they use #15 on a potential franchise quarterback.obviously Misters Luck andGriffin will be gone. Is Landry Jones worth the pick? Tannehill? Foles in the mid 2nd?

    Cousins late 2nd early 3rd? Worth it? Franchise quarterback?

    Please give opinions and insights. Eagles fans only have 2012 to think about. :crying: I'm sure you Lions fans are thinking the current playoffs. Hopefully that doesn't change after New Orleans.

    I don't see the Eagles drafting Cousins.....he's a thinker.......he still needs some work on his passing accuracy.

    Actually Patriots might pick him up........

    The Patriots like little underdog guys e.g.Wes Welker). I've been saying for a year now they will take Boise State's Kellen Moore.

    It's tough to control the actions of 80+ college kids. How many guys are on a football team anyway?

    Yeah, it isn't the school's fault. The player should know better.
