Prognosticating: Michigan State

By 11W Staff on September 28, 2011 at 8:00p

It's score-guessin' time again.

The comment with the closest prediction for the final score of Saturday's tilt with the Spartans will win a shirt from 11W Dry Goods.

Like the lovely design featured on the right. Or something else. Your call.

Now aren't you glad you browse this site at night?

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

27-24 Buckeyes. Miller's passing is better than people think. Defense will get walked on but come up with big plays in the red zone.

13-10 Buckeyes.

Defense gets it done.

Rooster Buckburn's picture

Sparty starts strong and leads early - but then wakes up and realizes they are sparty and we are the Buckeyes - which leads to some big plays and the final score of 27-25 Buckeyes win, thhhuuuuuuuuuuu Buckeyes win (John Sterling inflection).

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Saturday's forecast for Columbus:

Saturday Oct.1
Partly sunny, breezy and cold
Hi 56, Lo 37

Should be a good day for going 1-0 in conference play.

Nice! You really think we'll score 56 or is that just the weather? /sarcasm

Good to see someone remember to hit the sarcasm button.  We almost saw a fight breakout last week when someone didn't use it.

Bucks43201's picture

I just hope ABC gives a pre-game and/or halftime interview to Coach Dantonio, (post-game would likely mean MSU won so no post-game), that guy give the best interviews: succinct, to the point, abrupt and he decides when the interview's over. He's so deadpan, it's hilarious

10-9 Ohio State

The defense ties the record for sacks in a game (12), also achieved versus Michigan State in 2005. Miller and the running backs do just enough to win.

Because we couldn't go for three.

We win 22-21 on a broken play, 2 point conversion. Braxton runs into the end zone and is leveled simultaneously. I'll save the remainder of my dream as it is too painful to share with Buckeye Nation. Here is to your health Braxton, may you keep it eternaly and take care of your body.

Irricoir's picture

If Fickell was doing what was best for his team, he'd start preparing one of the other quarterbacks for next season. Even if Bauserman, is slightly better, he can not be that much better than Guiton or Graham. I am actualy looking forward to Cardale myself. I haven't given up on this season but I think that training for the future isn't necessarily giving up. What's worse? Handing off to Hall with Guiton or handing off to Hyde with Bauserman? Because after 5 called pass plays that is all Bauserman would be doing anyhow.

MSU has no O-line.

You guys get two T.O.'s on Sparties side of the field due to pressure. MSU gets a freshman freebie T.O. by Miller.

Although I like your prediction, I believe sir you meant to say either The Ohio State University or The Buckeyes.  FYI, Ohio University is located in Athens, Ohio and it's mascot is a bobcat.

I think he was mocking that fatty Hoke from up North referring to Ohio state as "Ohio".

I'm glad you C.P.'s got the jab, reguardless I don't think Mark Dantiono has it in him to beat his "Tragic Hero's" former team.

I didn't see 24-12 MSU so I'm going for it.

It's funny when ppl pick the opposing team then feel they have to announce their loyalty to OSU. Duh, the contest is for a buckeye shirt, we all know who you are rooting for, I just want a shirt.

Look at the roster! Who are we playing? Like the Ohio Wolverines of Michigan, the green team is the Ohio Spartans of Michigan State.

Irricoir's picture

Brady Hoke ponders as he looks across the field at the spartans...."Looky here boys, it's time we took down Ohio"

Same colors as the Bob Cats and comprised by majority of Ohio talent. Maybe not that funny but it was a thought that flashed through my mind.

There are 5 teams on our Big Ten schedule that could easily beat us.  MSU is 3rd out of the 5.  Gonna be ugly.
