I miss your upbeat spirit when you go missing for a few.
Powerful MSU offense marches 99 yards for their 2nd touchdown of the 2nd quarter.
They lead the surprising Fighting Illini by a score of 14-3 at the half.
I'm gonna assume that MSU wins today and will be 7-1 when they meet Michigan.
In their only loss...a 17-14 score against ND, MSU gave up only 220 total yards on 66 plays.
MSU has the #1 ranked Defense in college football.
MY prediction of 8-0 didn't happen...but it should have.
You get credit for that one.
Spartans get Michigan next week. Both teams coming off offensive juggernaut performances.
However, MSU continues to dominate defensively........
State could win all of their remaining games and finish the regular season 11-1, based on their outstanding Defense...
I don't know why I bother complimenting you. You are so much better at it than anyone else...
Predicting games and events is something that I've always done since I've been here.
I would guess that I'm no better or worse at it than anybody else.
This is a place where I enjoy doing it. By now you can figure that I'm an obnoxious person.
That quality runs in my family...from Nemo (grandpa) on down...It's who we are...
Anyways...time to start talking about the big game...MSU against Michigan
Both teams have had top ten potential all year long. They've just had some figuring out to do.
State seems to have found their passing game and running game. Blocking looks decent now,
and the defense can win against anybody.
UM seems to still need more time to realize their potential. Still too inconsistent in all phases of the game.
The Michigan defense is missing now for 4 weeks, and I hope a week off has helped the process.
I like the swagger of the MSU coach saying he expects to be playing for the Big Ten championship.
He goes as far as to say his players are planning on it.
Coach Hoke wants to settle for nothing less than the Big Ten championship and BCS bowl games.
Kinda the stuff we had with coach Lloyd Carr. Still got a way to go, but Saturday could be a step.
Here's my prediction as of Sunday.... MSU 44- Michigan 24
MSU defense will be too much for Gardner as he throws a couple picks, but UM field goal kicker has a good day. MSU 24, UM 19
I'm thinking you and I are two peas in a pod. At least we don't take ourselves too seriously.
Michigan ranked 23rd with State ranked 24th.
There are 5 two-loss teams ranked ahead of us.
Wisconsin is one of them.
What's up with that...........
This was a thorough spanking by Sparty. I believe this is five wins in the past six. MSU D-line dominated UM O-line.
MSU has a few road tests coming up. Hoping they get through them to face OSU in the BIG title game. I want see how this MSU D stacks up against OSU's O.
MSU should be ranked inside the top 15.
Not sure what to say about UM. They are 6-2 but have looked REALLY BAD at times. No fight today at all.
MICHIGAN STATE !!!!!!!
Yea...my prediction kinda covered the essence
of the game. I figured a 20 point MSU Victory.
Sloppy conditions kept the score down.
MSU ready to play in the Big Ten championship game.
Really doesn't matter where they're ranked.
They need to beat OSU to get a BCS game.
Otherwise, they'll be in the Capitol One Bowl.
If they don't make it to the Championship game,
then they deserve the Marzetti Croutons Bowl...
Every M fan wearing their Blue today knew this game was over midway through the third quarter. It was the same ole stuff for the rest of the game Michigan gets the ball and they lose more yards than gained.
MSU was just the beast out there and once they had the Wolverines where they wanted, Sparty was able to move down the field on the Wolverine secondary.
Should see the Spartans move up at least 3 spots in the polls and Michigan fall out of the top 25 permanently ..unless they upset OSU..
Class posts Dre and Gazoo as opposed to merman trying to passive aggressively bring us down over possibly missing the Rose Bowl. Too much lemon makes the fish taste bitter. But yeah, OSU very well may knock us out... But look whose talking... Not something anyone is going to focus on today.
But this is a HAPPY day for MSU! I feel bad for Brady Hoke because he is a classy guy, IMO. They were just overmatched. Still stinging from the Rodriguez damage. He will bring Michigan some glory... Eventually.
As far as the statement " MSU SHOULD be ranked in top 15, I highly doubt it.
1. If you mean SHOULD such as WILL be ranked Top 15 then I think not because hardly anyone currently above them lost.
2. If you mean SHOULD as in DESERVE then I don't know enough about anyone currently above them but they haven't beaten anyone really good yet so it is difficult to know if the suspect offense merits that. But the system is so subjective anyhow so who DOES know?
All I said was that you guys shouldn't miss the Championship game. You're good enough to get there.
I have not offered a prediction yet on the Championship game. I guess you forgot that I gave you guys
a 20 point win in my prediction. Remember...no complaining unless you make a prediction first...
I've made no prediction on you guys ability to make the Rose Bowl...not yet anyways.
I will predict. Won't happen.
What won't happen?
