Yes, but 2017 was my favorite. 

Another 2017 please.

I could have gone the rest of my life without seeing that piece of asshat garbage windmilling his way across the shoe.  Anyway, really getting pumped for this one!!!

WHY DID YOU CLICK IT?!!!!

The pain of discipline or the pain of regret, take your pick

I never saw the windmilling. As soon as I saw that the kick cleared the goalposts, I put my head down and made my way out of C-Deck. It was a wet and cold walk to Tommy's Pizza on Lane.

I hear ya... It was a miserable day... I thought Zeke was gonna win the Heisman that day, instead he carried it like 12 times.

Heard from a number of Spartans already saying that the feel bad that by beating us, they will send Michigan to the B1G Game  

Spartans win, and their fans don’t shut up.

Win or lose, a team that beat them will be playing in Indy!

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Love the confidence from a team that is 0-6 and 2-15 v tOSU. 

Be sure to have Harbaugh ask Urban for directions to Lucas Oil Stadium.

In this case, it's actually the Spartan fans that are confident that TTUN beats us.  But either way, the entire state of Michigan sucks ass so...

If MSU beats us it doesn't matter who wins The Game. TTUN still wins the division.

We are not losing.  I love the match up for us on both sides of the ball. Special Teams will be key.

WHAT ???

Ohio State could be 0-11 and it ALWAYS MATTERS who wins the game.

You Sir are sadly mistaken, it ALWAYS matters who wins The Game!

Says the guy who roots for a team who hasn't won sh#t in how many years and is like what, 1-15 against OSU?  

I hope tOSU rolls you in a few weeks. I will be wearing my scarlet and gray. Nothing is more precious than seeing the long, sad, demoralized faces of a Walmart Wolverine wallowing in defeat. 

Signed,

Sparty

Ol' Mike Geiger doing his best Pete Townshend, great to see that again.

Ranks just below Desmond Howard doing...you know.

"Obviously a big one this week against Michigan State," Meyer said. "Very strong rivalry, and we have a lot of respect for that team."

Rivalry, but not our Rival

I too was surprised by Urban saying that. There is only one Rival.

How about "Always a tough game" </coachspeak>

Surprised there hasn't been any mention of 48-3 and the revenge factor for last year. Then again Dantonio didn't seem too miffed by it last year.

Ive always been a Dantonio fan.  All substance.

My guess is that Dantonio is keeping the "revenge factor" in his own locker room and using it for his own advantage.

HS
CowCat's picture

I'm sure Dantonio *will* use the revenge motivation, as well as his usual mixture of "No-one respects us in the Big Ten" and "Ohio State didn't recruit you".

The problem for him is that he will have to prepare for a radically different OSU team than last year. Revenge is not that simple.

Sorta related....Narducci flames out at Pitt comes to OSU as Def Coord.

You win with people.

Huh? There's a solid chance Pitt wins the ACC Coastal (bad, but still) this year.

It's kind of weird... The way this season has gone I'm ok with a win or a loss this weekend because on one hand you can still have fun hoping that they make it to the B1G Championship and the CFP but on the other hand, if they lose it will just put the nail in the coffin that this season wasn't meant to be from the get go and that we can all see that this experiment of 2018 football can be blown up and restarted with brighter hopes next year. And yes, a loss would mean that we would increase chances to help Harbaugh keep his job longer so that we can enjoy more victories in the coming years at the expense of their tears. I just hope some true leaders are found this month.

MSU is a big time opponent. It's time to put on big boy pants and punch Sparty in the mouth for 60 minutes.

So what’s Geiger doing now? pumping gas in Ann Arbor and windmilling into the past, didn’t get to kick much against Bama

Go Bucks!

Why the hate for MD? He does pretty well with 2*and 3* star recruits. Would love to see what he would do with the talent that OSU/Bama recruits

HS
CowCat's picture

It's not hate, but I don't have any illusions about the contest. Dantonio doesn't like Urban at some level (he's evaded questions about it specifically), and he wants to kick our ass. Even Jim Harbaugh is more cordial when speaking publicly.

As to what he would do with Ohio State talent, well he would still be playing Tresselball, featuring the "genius" of Bollmann. We would be steady winners, but be exposed against elite competition.

Right where we are now? Except we wouldn't be paying as much $$$$ for the coach?

The man is unscrupulous and has turned a blind eye to some incredibly scummy things that his players have done.  He is an enabler!

Ummm... Does MSU recruit to the level of the big boys like tOSU and scUM? No, of course not. But we get our fair share of 4 stars each year and a five-start sprinkled in from time to time. Stop acting like those arrogant, patronizing douche bags in AA, who haven't won a BIG10 title in f#ck knows how long.

You are OSU, you can do better than that.  

Sincerely,

Sparty

"and quarterback Connor Cook sliced through a shoddy secondary to build an early 17-0 lead."

Yeah , but Jackie Cook is the real MVP.

I surely hope Haskins didn’t really listen to Patterson’s advice ! A loss to Sparty and MeatChicken is in !

Though I respect how his teams play hard and are prepared. Wish our team of entitled players played at the same level consistently as they play. Love our coach but he rarely makes the tough call and usually too late. We must have better talent at some of the positions that are currently struggling.

No quarter will be received.  No quarter will be given.  Low man wins so deep bends in the trenches will determine the outcome.  Go Bucks. Carpe Diem > μολὼν λαβέ

Weather will be a factor in this game.  15 plus mph wind and cold.  MSU will more than likely stuff OSU's running game.  Hoping not, but could be a replay of 2 years ago.

Recent history certainly suggests this game will make or break Ohio State's season.

True.

Every remaining game on the schedule will do that as well at this point, though. 

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...
