It would be un-American if we didn't get 2 in since the B1G has been the best conference

Comment 20 Nov 2015

While I love the uniforms, I kinda wish we weren't doing something special for MSU. Doing nothing would say, "You aren't our rivals."

1) Clemson

2) LSU

3) Baylor

4) Ohio State

5) Michigan State

Baylor - I'm not counting the loss of Seth Russell for Baylor. They may not play defense, but they are dominant in the offense. I have watched them a few times this year. Color me impressed

LSU - Fournette is so good, and Harris (whom I actually met this summer!) is good enough to keep 8-9 out of the box. 

Clemson is good. I don't see a lot of weakness in their game actually, though I've only watched them a couple of times and not full games. 

I hesitated putting Sparty so high. TTUN beat them. I watched them be beaten down physically. It was a demoralizing defeat. Except for that last play. 

I'm being honest here. We have looked GREAT at times and silly at other times. Dominant and weak. All in the same game. I don't know how to rank tOSU except to give them the nod because 1) UFM 2) Reigning champ still undefeated.  Were I truly to evaluate how and whom we have played, I would rate us 7-8.

FWIW - I've watched Iowa and they are not for real IMO. Just sayin'

Totally agree SouthBuc. Webb back is the real story here. We are really thin in the back end of the defense right now, and getting a proven commodity back there is so helpful. 

Whatever happened, 6 games is a hefty penalty. Let's just move on and hope he's learned his lesson.

So far this year Braxton seems a little impatient looking for holes. He's so fast and shifty that he can usually get away with it. 2 years ago he was able to wait and get tons of yards waiting for the blocks to unfold and then blow by the rest of the defenders. Hopefully he gets back to that. I'd love to see him pass, but I think this could all be a smoke screen to keep Minny and MSU guessing.

I do think he should lose it. He's lost some credibility. He stood up there and said "Don't do stupid stuff" and then this. He was not the example he should be and thus he should, as a good leader, resign his position as a captain. If he grows and comes back from this, it will be there for him next season. That is my $.02

I get amped when I see this package on the field. Love it! Great call by the staff to put this together. Creating mismatches is key for any staff.

This one may be around for a while as we have some bigger DE's coming in. Nick is as big as JB now, and will get bigger in Marotti's dojo. He may become a 3 Tech sooner than later.

You think that's a tough gig, try being a pastor :)

Well there is Peyton Manning. I'm not saying Russell is in any way a Manning-quality player, rather just making the connection on the neck injury and how Peyton came back from it. 

We hope and pray he gets well soon
