    Actually, I was pointing out that U of M fans aren't too bright. It will be too hot to wear gloves. :P

    This one is so hard to call. Cousins throws a pick for the loss in the last 2 minutes or U of M scores on the last play and wins a close one. Maybe just because that is my worst nightmare scenarios for the game.

    Who needs it more? I think Sparty, because of all those demons over the years that need to be exorcised, but I am biased.

    Hopefully Michigan's defenders just go into the fetal position so that they can avoid injury.

    My favorite victory of this series was the come from behind, triple overtime thriller in 2004. Game lasted 4 hours and was played into the night. here are some highlights with a decidedly UM slant. Go Blue. I was there for all the excitement. What a thriller. Note the 5 NFL stars on that UM offense.

    I've seen that picture before. I wonder what the real Michigan girl looked like before they put the XL in front of her. My choice would be Penn state.

    :pound:@ detteam

    I'm all over Iowa or Minnesota. Penn State would be my last choice...except U of M.

    Interesting choices...The 4 to the left of the superimposed girl look small enough to be her lunch. My second choice would be Indiana.

    We've got way different tastes. But that's why you're a U of M fan, I guess. No accounting for tastes. Different strokes and all that...

    Anyhow, I'm not even sure any of them are legal. :pound: But I am sure neither of us got a snowball's chance, anyhow... Maybe 25 years ago...maybe... :pound:

    Even Michigans strike in a hurry up offense cannot over come this 31-10 deficit with 20 minutes to go in the game.

    The Michigan Defense is living up to its pregame hype...last in the nation....

    The O which was second has finally met its match...

    This doesn't surprise me as I predicted a stellar season for MSU. I'm just wondering at this point if they'll let UM back into the game. It's really up to STATE now to seal the deal. I believe they will...

    MSU played well and I'm just really really happy. Was nervous the entire game and lost sleep last night over this.

    Not going to razz you fellas. I've been on the short end too many times.

    Peace.

    Robinson got caught up in the passing game in the red zone where I would have still tried to keep it on the ground despite the Spartan run defense. of course blame some of that on his receivers who must have decided to take the day off. :yellowprison:

    one other difference between the first five games and this one was the average gain per play which was well below their average of 20+ yards. Most of Robinsons runs were less than 6 yards as they were set up with a ton of 3rd situations that didn't occur in prior games.


    And yes his Heisman status took a hit and it doesn't get any easier next week vs Iowa for Robinson or Michigan.

    Oh by the way, are there any unemployed defensive coordinators available that can help out RR and company??
