Best place to watch the game is at the Embassy Suites in Cool Springs.  Its about 15 min south of the city on I-65.  The Middle TN Alumni Club meets there to watch games in the sports bar.

That's kinda what I was thinking, especially since they both have buckeye leaves on the back

Those are sick. I may have to pick up a pair of those too.

Off topic rant time:

It's always bugged me how vanilla is synonymous with plain.  The yogurt industry is the only one that gets it right in my book. They sell vanilla yogurt and plain yogurt as 2 different products.  Vanilla is a spice, and a very expensive one in the old days.  Always has been and always will be a pet peeve of mine.

How strict is Michigan St.'s student ticket policy? I've found that for some schools (like Ohio State), it is pretty lax and a student can sell a ticket to anyone and they will be able to use it no problem, while at other schools (like Penn State), the ticket can only be transferred to someone with a current valid student id.

You're right, except for the fact that he tackled him when he didn't have the football.  That's illegal and what was called.

I was at the game and they showed the replay on the scoreboard a few times.  It was definitely a penalty.  The hit was legal, but he holds onto him and then drives him to the ground clearly after he has thrown the ball.  It was the correct call and a bonehead play by Grant.

Eh I don't know about that.  Everything is cyclical.  I would be more surprised if they won 4 games every year than if they have a great season every once in a while like they're having now. Even if it is bought and paid for, it's not like its giving them an advantage since the same thing is happening everywhere around the $EC.

Also, the shot at 1:14 is pretty magnificent with the ball being just in front of the lights making it glow.

I'm in favor of a 16 team playoff.  There are 10 FBS conferences in the nation, so each conference champion gets in.  That way every team technically has something to play for.  It's what the do in college basketball and it couldn't have worked out better.  Sure the little guys will be underdogs, but will also provide memorable upsets along the way.  The other 6 spots are at-large selections which would go to a committee.  

I think that approach would protect the integrity of the regular season, since most teams won't have a shot of getting in without winning their conference.

The Middle TN alumni club watches the games at the sports bar in the Embassy Suites in Cool Springs.  It's about 15 min south of Nashville on I-65.  They have it on a projector and the place is full of Buckeye fans.  That's probably your best bet.

I think everyone wants for you to denounce your allegiance to Michigan, become a diehard Buckeye fan and ask everyone for forgiveness. I think you'll see some animosity until that happens.

...or this happens
Comment 29 Sep 2014

This is off topic, but I think referees' enforcement of ineligible receivers downfield is comical at best.  If you look at the screenshot of when Spencer makes the catch, we have 2 linemen 5+ yards from the line of scrimmage who aren't engaged with anybody.  Sure it was a screen pass, but Spencer makes the catch after the line of scrimmage technically making the play illegal.  Luckily it wasn't called on us this time and hopefully it won't hurt us in the future. 

Comment 29 Sep 2014

I'll agree it was lackluster, and has been for the past few seasons.  From spending a lot of the games on the field in the past, the two loudest games I've ever experienced were the '09 USC game and the '09 Iowa game with the Rose Bowl on the line. Those were deafening.
