Lurker since TatGate in 2010 and then finally signed up for an account a few years later. I post rarely, but read the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason.

What he said. What B1G coach worth his salt wouldn't be gunning for us? We're certainly not the first or only team to use some version of The Chase as a motivational theme. (Turns out it's much more effective than the The Chased theme that we used this year. Maybe next year it'll be The Unchaste. ....Aaaand since there are way too many follow-on jokes there, I'll just see myself out now.)

There might be some reverse causality in these stats.  On days when giving it to Brax is working well against a defense, it'll push up the stats and usually result in more touches.  And on days when the defense is containing him well, we're less likely to call his number as many times.

It just means that 538 expects MSU to completely Spart themselves if they make it to the playoffs, whereas the models expect us to outperform them if we can find a way in.  Which syncs well with what I'd expect.

That would definitely make for an exciting finale.

Btw, sorry to everyone for forgetting to wear my lucky gameday shirt on Saturday.  It's all my fault.  I was adjusting back from roughly a half-day difference in time zones and days behind on sleep, so I didn't wake up until our last possession and forgot to put on my thus-far undefeated gameday shirt.  Speaking of which, what happens now to DJ's hitherto undefeated "get dumped then" hex?

Everyone has said something stupid on the internet at some point (well, I have anyway), but the important thing is to learn not to keep making the same mistakes.  The wisdom of 11W's commenting policy applies in most of life.

Anyone know of a comparable Browns site?  The Browns forums that I've seen are headshakingly unreadable because they don't abide by 11W's simple "don't be a jerk, keep perspective, and have fun" commenting policy.

But DC's snow is the best of both worlds! It's hardly ever that bad, yet even an internet rumor that someone saw a snowflake gets you the day off.
