    Agreed on Bell. But we still look weak even up 35-14.

    Running game =A+

    Quarterback = C

    Defense =B

    Nichols=A (Great TD catch when game was close and great attitude after losing QB contest to Cousins).

    Keeshawn-C When he tried to pick up that ball on special teams I was like OMG!!! Don't" But he did. And it was costly. He did OK besides that.

    Dantonio-C

    New kicker = incomplete

    Overall = B (Won't win many against Big Ten teams with all those stupid penalties, but then again, it was only the first game).

    I think both U of M and MSU have the potential to go 8-4. 9-3 at the very best (but unlikely). We both should get a bowl (6-6 is certainly attainable).

    U of M will beat us this year. :gun1:

    No, I don't think so. MSU at a BCS bowl game...UM at the Topeka bowl.

    I want Boise State to lose tonight :sssh: (I doubt they lose) and therefore go to the Humanitarian bowl in Boise (other than a BCS bowl). BSU hasn't lost at home in years (literally) and by some miracle I hope MSU goes there too. Then another miracle and we beat them and I mess with everyone in the city.

    You're really hoping for the planets to align just right. :)

    Ya know Darth. I really enjoy reading about all the strange relationships / situations that you write / post pictures about.

    Reminds me of a wedding I went to awhile ago. an Older "transistor radio" was getting wed to a "young antennae". Didn't seem like a good match to me. The wedding was only "ok" but the "reception" was fabulous....:pound: :pound: :pound:

    Sparty favored by 26. Still can't believe Florida gave up a game in their home State for the almighty buck. Well...I guess I can...


    MSU 27

    Florida Atlantic 17

    Not so good, but enough to keep us on the path for 6-6 or 7-5 to earn the right to lose another bowl game in the 4th quarter by a close margin.:yellowprison:

    MSU sucked. The NCAA needs to investigate this.

    4th and goal from the 7 for Florida Tech.

    3 minutes left. MSU up 16 points.

    So you go for the touchdown. try a 2 point conversion. Hope to recover the onside kick. Score again and try the 2 point. It's a lot but your ONLY chance to win. Even a 6th grader knows that.

    The coach of Florida Tech kicks a damned field goal. Game over. They have no chance now. MSU up 30-19.

    Then he doesn't even try an onside kick.

    MSU wins 30-19. I never felt so sick after a win.

    First they play in Michigan and then the Florida coach does this??? What is going on here???

    Florida tech never had a chance with that kind of odds. They simply knew it.

    My concern is that MSU had 17 first downs and Florida Tech had 21...:stirthepot:

    Florida Tech could have done it. It was a bit of a long shot but their only shot. The Florida players were visibly ticked. The announcers were shocked too.

    No need to stir the pot Nemo. I will be the first to admit that the pass coverage sucked, the quarterback sucked, and the offensive play calling sucked.

    The running backs were very good.

    MSU has a lousy team.
