Eleven Dubcast: A Spartan Chance

We did it! Barely clothed in tattered rags, starving and dehydrated, filthy with the grime from the Michigan game, we wash ashore to the sandy beach of the Big Ten Championship game.

A man dressed in green and white emerges from the forest ahead of us. Injured, slow, he is nonetheless a dangerous enemy we must defeat if we wish to move on to the mountaintop ahead of us.

Michael and I, having barely survived the Michigan game ourselves, seek guidance about the upcoming matchup between Ohio State and Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship game, and to that end we've brought on Joe Rexrode from the Detroit Free Press to talk a little Sparty football, and to hopefully be the salve for all our fears.

Add to that an excellent edition of Ask Us Anything (which you can do at elevendubcast@gmail.com), and you've got a pretty great Eleven Dubcast. Take a look why not after the jump.

0:23- The Michigan game was  an epic battle that left both Michael and I nearly dead. We break down the action here.

18:41- Joe Rexrode comes on and lays out all you could ever hope to know about Sparty this year, and tells all of Jim Bollman's horrible personal secrets (no not really)

37:34- Ask Us Anything! All kinds of great questions this week, including how we'd trash Paul Finebaum's career.

55:43- Never, ever judge personal value on awards.

Music for the Dubcast this week was Mixed Bizness by Beck, I Know What I Am by Band of Skulls, and The Big Bad Wolf by The Heavy. And that'll do it for this week, see you next time!

Sparty is one tough looking mascot.  If he played for the Spartans I would really be worried.

Just think how hot that rubber(?) suit must be at indoor events. 

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

If you can't win your conference, just quietly accept your non-playoff bowl game.

Sparty kind of looks like 'American Dad' dressed up in a costume to pull some sort of CIA shenanigans overseas. 

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

Spartans will Sparty: have been doing it for thousands of years. Spartans win a battle now and then, but never a war. Always remember their performance in " The Game Of the Century " a total choke if ever there was one. The Whore Of South Bend didn't even have a quarterback, and they still tied'em. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

We can't count on them to beat themselves.  We need to do it for them.
