I totally agree with you, Southerntip.  This is why the loss stings.  I can handle losing to a team because they were the better team.  That is not the case in this loss.  We have WAY MORE talent from top to bottom than MSU has, our coaching staff called a piss-poor game plan offensively.

Meyer said they had too many men on the LOS and he couldn't it.  He is dead wrong.  Throw the ball out in space to your play-maker wideouts and turn them loose, like you did last year up in East Lansing.  Once you get the numbers in the box in your favor, then you run the ball down their throats.

MSU stacked the LOS all evening, and we had 16 total pass attempts.  Game was lost right there.

Nellie, that is what I said to my son.  When the shot of Zeke was on the screen, I said to my son, "This is Zeke's last game in the 'Shoe.  Why else would he be crying like that."

God bless you, Zeke, and best of luck to you young man.  If I had a daughter, I would be damn proud to have you as a son-in-law.

Exactly.  Our lack of offensive ingenuity with the play calling lost this game more than the MSU defense won it.  The stats all show that the Sparty pass defense was mighty suspect, yet we ran the ball much more.  The game plan should have been the same as last year's MSU game - passing game to the outside to get the safeties out of the box and keep the corners from looking inside to the run.  Then, after you have them softened up and playing honest, Zeke can get his yards.

Our lack of offense this entire season finally caught up to us.  We have soooo many weapons, yet our OCs fail to get the ball to them.  At the risk of inviting downvotes and being called a fair-weather fan, which I am MOST CERTAINLY NOT, I hope Urban looks for a more talented Offensive Coordinator in the off-season.  I love Warinner, but he is an offensive line coach, NOT  an OC.

Was it me, or did you all notice that on many pass attempts against Illinois, JT didn't seem to be deep in the pocket?  There were many times where both DE's were past him when he makde his throw.

Also, I didn't see one jet sweep or even jet motion with the handoff going against the motion.  Did the staff see something in the Illini defense that made them scrap these plays?

I saw this story on Channel 4 news last night.  He's a handsome little boy, and when I heard his family put him in hospice, I cried like a baby myself.  God bless this little boy, and if we can have a miracle, heal him.

God bless the Carr family.  I cannot even fathom the thoughts and emotions going through their heads...

I agree here.  I was surprised that Willoughby's stats were that high, because it seems like he couldn't hit a cow with a milk truck.  Actually, those numbers are decent, but the concern is the distance.  Also, from inside of 40 yards, we need someone to be darn-near automatic.

I can understand Urban's philosophy on going on 4th and short.  How many times have we seen him go for a first down inside of the 30 on 4th and anything over 2 yards?  My guess is not much.  This is where he would opt for 3 points but in his defense, I don't think many defenses have put our offense in 4th and longer than 3 yards too many times this year inside of the 30.

I totally agree.  If LSU, Clemson, and Ohio State all go undefeated, the polls should be: 1 LSU, 2 Ohio State, 3 Clemson.  Look at the remaining schedule for each school.  Clemson's looks the weakest of the three.  And if LSU beats Alabama, the entire %ucking media world would be touting LSU as the best team in the country.

That is not supposed to matter.  If the team is undefeated and wins their conference (TSU, Baylor, Oklahoma State, or MSU - could happen), then that unbeaten conference champ SHOULD be in over Alabama, provided Alabama does not win the SEC championship... but by saying this, it would make 'Bama a two loss team and this whole conversation is plain pointless.  Kind of like the whole damn "rank them now" process.

This is just another way for ESPN to make ratings... I ain't buying into it.  Let's discuss it after the season.

Funny how the committee puts two schools from the same conference in the top four when they SAY being a conference champion is a heavily weighted factor in the final four....

Like I said earlier, lipstick on a pig... These rankings don't mean JACK until all conference championship games are played.
