I do not believe Michigan State bests Ohio State.
I do not believe Michigan State bests the Buckeyes and it doesn't matter right now. The fans and team can savor today's trouncing until the bye ends. Then we all can set our sights on Nebraska. The potential OSU matchup is too far ahead.
First off...MSU should be favored the rest of their schedule.
A win against Nebraska next week will sew up the Legends division.
OSU will not be ready for the MSU defense, just like UM.
I see a BCS Bowl against Stanford...Rose or Fiesta....
After you guys knock off OSU.............
Knocking off Nebraska in their house won't be easy. But this is a week to enjoy the decisive victory over our rivals.
Michigan State is ranked 18th. Not bad. Even though those are really meaningless numbers it feels good to know our team is considered among the best.
Nebraska won last week on a Hail Mary but it isn't a foregone conclusion MSU beats them. They don't have a good track record in Nebraska ( not that the past actually has anything to do with it).
Assuming MSU wins I agree with nemo on Capital One.
Michigan, I think is going Wild Wings or Outback. But they better beat Nebraska. I quit hating on Michigan ( ok I don't hate them As much maybe because we've turned the tables on them) but this weekend I will be rooting my arse off for them. GO B... Bl...Go blue!!
I'm jealous of the defense.
It's statistically good, however, State hasn't faced a good offense yet
Michigan's offense isn't that bad. 6 points in good weather means they faced something special.
Well...Stanford stuffed the High powered offense of Oregon (I hate that team with their goofy uniforms)
Stanford is an excellent defensive squad. Shame they're not going to the championship game.
I'm guessing FSU and Alabama for the big game. (Those goofy Oregon unis should be a part of this: Cirque du Soleil - Official Site)
Instead they now get MSU in the Rose Bowl.......MSU fans will be in for a treat.
Game will be like the classic battle between MSU and ND from the 60s............
It's hard not to get excited about Michigan State right now. So I'm going to be uncharacteristically an optimist. I was dreaming about a national championship for a few minutes.
Let's say they beat Nebraska by a touchdown. So they move up to number 15.
Then they beat Northwestern by 10 points. So they move up to 12.
And they play Minnesota and win by a touchdown or two. That probably puts them around nine or 10.
Then they play Ohio State and beat them by a field goal. So they move up to about six or seven.
So if everything goes just about perfectly, which it probably won't, That means that they will not have a chance at a national championship. They are just too far down in the rankings to move up I think.
So best case scenario they play Ohio State and somehow beat them they would go to the Rose Bowl. That would be nice. But not a national championship.
Well, it was only a dream anyhow.
Because your team lost to ND, your not in the discussion.
With that win...you'd be ranked about 7th right now.
Your quality win would be against OSU.
The highest ranking you could have achieved would be to replace OSU at 4.
Others woulda needed to lose for you to ascend to the #2 spot.
Yeah, I know. Those very questionable pass interference calls didn't help. It won't fall that way anyhow.
Michigan fails to take care of their own business let alone ours. That's fine. If MSU loses to Nebraska next week they are undeserving. People acted like MSU had such a commanding lead over Nebraska. I never understood that. Nebraska is now in control if they beat the Spartans.
MSU is the better team. Lose and they get a non bowl like Michigan.
Now let's not make excuses on this thread.
I expect to see at least 2 people predicting a MSU victory score, besides myself.
Darth...Detteam.......I wanna hear it. You guys have the control and the team.
Not a fan of score predictions. I predict a W
Hmmmm. I guess all that talk about me hiding under the couch was mere projection... <---- Detteam the courageous behind Sigmund Freud's couch.
I'm willing to put myself out there. I'm wrong or I'm right. BFD.
Michigan State 20
The MSU receivers are hanging onto the ball much better. I also think Cook isn't a half bad clutch quarterback.
But Michigan State's offense seems like it always depends on the defense to set them up or get them some momentum.
I'm not feeling it. But I'm usually pessimistic so move along folks. Nothing to see here..
Sadness and sorrow. Darth, You act like the score is going to be close.
Look for an MSU route............
MSU 31 - Nebraska 6
Fish, you've made wrong predictions aplenty but you've also made correct one. I thought a few of your MSU predictions in the past were crazy and they came true. You seem to have a very good handle on what the Spartans will do each year. But the Nebraska coach is Mr. November and he's lost about one home November game in Nebraska. I know the past should have no effect on tomorrow's game but Michigan State hasn't beat Nebraska since they joined the Big Ten.
But I'm glad they are playing Nebraska. I get ticked at Boise State playing crap teams and whining about their ranking. I shook my head at Michigan fans worrying they would drop in the rankings when they deserved to do so. If MSU is worthy of the #16 ranking then go earn it. What good is it to go to the Rose Bowl if everyone knows you don't deserve it?
I'm thinking Michigan State won't beat them but I sure hope you get it right. If they lose it will be a shame because an OSU vs MSU showdown would be so cool. Usually my mind can at least wrap around the thought of winning a certain game but I'm not seeing this for some reason.
Based on mascots alone...I'll predict a score of MSU 31 - Nebraska 6
