    Sparty at home against a very mediocre (at best) Purdue team that doesn't really have many weapons. I'm not too concerned about this one (besides the fact that I'm not too concerned about this one). IF Sparty shows up on Senior day it's a blowout.

    Sparty 20 point favorites. MSU covers.

    Prediction:

    Sparty 35

    Purdue 14

    Maybe the Spartan kicker has been getting some tips from the U of M coaches.

    Stupid timeout by MSU at the end of the half. Purdue was confused and the clock was running out. It gave Purdue time to regroup and call a good play.

    Exactly. I was cussing Dantonio out when he called it. What an IDIOT!!

    Same old Sparty. It just took longer. 13-28.

    REALLY? REALLY?

    There are people who post on this thread and show signs of being negative. :(

    Shame, shame, shame, on them.................. :cold:

    The Spartans are now 10-1. They should finish 11-1 and get a nice bowl game. :)

    You negative fans should now be watching OSU vs Iowa. :cheers:

    If Iowa wins at home, then MSU is in the drivers seat... :winner_first_h4h:

    Now git, git, git...downstairs and cheer for Iowa...:)

    That was nice of you to not call out anyone by name (DARTH, DARTH, DARTH). It's really not necessary to embarrass anyone any more than they already embarrass themself.

    Don't forget to praise Darth on his "gloom and doom" post when Sparty was down 15 points. Where's the faith, Darth?

    Do you guys notice the correlation between my negativity and the Spartan's success.

    Spartans are 2 point favorites over Penn State on the road.

    OSU is a 17 point favorite against Michigan at home.

    Wisconsin is a 23 point favorite over Northwestern at home.


    To me...the closest game will be Wisconsin vs Northwestern.

    I think that Penn State is going to beat MSU in what may be Paterno's final game. But MSU would lose it anyhow. MSU always loses these kinds of regular season games and usually by a lot of points after playing like crap. They play well in Bowl games before shooting themselves in the foot at the end.We haven't won there in a long long time, I believe. Penn State isn't very good but I think they will beat Sparty by a good margin. You predicted 11-1 before the season began and I responded with :pound:. So even though you will be a little bit off (MSU will be 10-2), YOU DA MAN.

    I think Ohio State will beat Michigan, but if both the offense and defense shows up, they can battle them. That's a lot of if"s though. Good luck to Michigan.

    I think Wisconsin will beat Northwestern by at least two touchdowns.

    I don't want to predict the Michigan OSU game cause my feelings about the rivalry get in the way of a sane evaluation of the two teams.

    I believe that to a man...MSU has the better players and should go into Happy Valley and beat Penn State.

    With the Sweatervest sitting on 239 victories and still in his 50s, Jo Pa will probably coach til he's 93 years old.
