    I'm talking about UMass.

    If we look at the here and now, every team is 0-0.

    This week the Wolverines are playing the Hoosiers. I'm predicting that 100 points will be scored. :)

    It's a long a storied past.

    Check this out:

    Michigan vs. Northwestern, 1960. Photo by Henri Cartier-Bresson. A legend in photography captures an American legend. If you look close, you can spot Nemo, with binoculars, just behind seated man with banner.

    It's a little work, but if you want to see Nemo, it's the 5th photo down.

    You all should crush a terrible Indiana team today. (I keep adding points to the totals but this should be enough...

    U of M 42

    Too quiet in here. Probably not too thrilled with that victory over a crappy Indiana team, but a win is a win. You are 5-0. Same as us. Next week someone has to lose, though.

    To beat MSU You will need more than Denard to step up big on offense PLUS fix your defense PLUS hope our quarterback makes a couple more stupid throws.

    I hope U of M stays ranked above us. I like the psychological advantage.

    Ever since that Mike midget guy labeled us "little brother" U of M hasn't beaten MSU. As Dantonio prophetically uttered after his comment, "Pride goeth before the fall".

    Should be a rock em sock em battle, though. When these two get together you never know.

    It will be fun.

    if we had just a bad defense, we could compete for a national title.... this team's def is well is so much worse then last years its not even funny (mind you last years was the worse in school history).

    the question is can we get enough breaks on def to win a shootout.

    we might need to score 50 next week to win....

    50 pts is right...never have I seen a defense allow so many 3rd and 4th down conversions.....and still wind up winning the game.

    I thought that TO at the goal line by Robinson was going to come back and haunt them and it almost did if not for the interception thrown by Chappel that may have been the only bright spot by the Wolverine secondary.

    494 Yards by D-Rob today and 5 TD's..continues to lead the Heisman watch...

    Was it me or did it sound like the classy Hoosier students were chanting "break his legs" and cheered when he went down injured in the third..:sssh:

    With MSU, Iowa and Penn State coming up.....do they win 2 of 3 or lose all three of them....

    I think Sparta should take the hit for the family. DRob has the Heisman all but sewd up. Let it stay that way.
    *******
    But with Spartas bigger win against Whiskey maybe Wolvers step aside.

    Denard racing toward his own end zone after seeing Greg Jones on UM's first offensive series

    Thee...think you'll get more entertainment watching Le'Veon Bell. Watch him carry a pack of Badgers for yards after the first down...about the 23 second mark

    YouTube - Michigan State 34 Wisconsin 24

    Michigan has the BT's 3rd worst defense against the run and is dead last in pass defense (by a large margin) through the powderpuff season. State's offense is gonna run through them like crap through a goose if Cousins keeps brain farts to a minimum.

    State is 3rd best against the rush, trailing Iowa and OSU. Pass defense sucked early on but has been improving. Special teams have been awesome.

    He's been fun to watch but Shoelace should consider tying them this weekend (they might end up in the 2nd level :sssh:). UM's one-man-band will be exposed as they hit the meat of the BT schedule

    @ detteam. Thanks for the laugh. I honestly was cracking up at that post and I'm still chuckling. Hard to type.

    Everything you said is true, I think. But I still think it may all go bad for us. I need to believe.

    I believe...I believe...
