I find myself committed to a Friday night HS game tonight, but it's just a few minutes from my house, starts at 7 pm, so I figure we'll run out in the middle of the 4th, get home, the Bucks will be down 10-0, and then they will proceed to win 76-10.

So, I'm not missing much... I hope.

I would definitely go along with a scarlet out, but I do not have any black OSU wear, and if I spent $260 on a pair of tickets, I don't really feel like I should be shamed into spending more money on a black swoosh/OSU shirt. 

For those who wore black, and those who were into it, I think it's great.  Not that we need a special color night to beat MSU, but since they are green and white, scarlet would have stood out nicely.  (scarlet out doesn't work against Nebraska, Wiscy, Indiana, etc.

How about next year's TTUN game where we all wear FUCK Michigan shirts a la 2002??? I'd go along with that!

It's all good gentlemen and ladies.

weird, but at this point I fear the MSU passing game more than the running game. 

So if things keep going this way, we will take MSU from top 3 defense in the country down to, what, 40th?

I'm real happy we haven't heard Willekes name get called much, and Bachie had some success early but then Fields outran him down the sideline.... nice. 

Dobbins looked a little flustered for awhile then but he has nutted up really well. 

And we still have Teague to knock some holes in that D.

Lewerke is a pretty good scrambler.  

should be a good second half but dang, can't let up at all. 

I saw a little rotation in the defensive line, not much else. 

need more turnovers.  

Love the big play strikes - those can demoralize a defense  a little.

If he gets picked, I'm hoping it's an "arm punt" type of pick - 40 yards down field. That's much better than the sideways pass getting picked-six!

We HAVE had a couple of turnovers, just no picks, and we've survived them.  I think Willekes and Bachie will have an effect on the playcalling this weekend, so I won't like it but I wouldn't be surprised to see us only throw the ball 18 or 20 times. 

Ryan Day has a way of proving me wrong, but that's how it looks in my head right now.

It's all great but we have to remember MSU has a real defense.  By now you've all seen the crazy stat - top 4 defenses in the country for points allowed are Wiscy, MSU, Penn State (?) and OSU. 

Not the B1G, but the country. Weather could be crappy, so... this week could be 27-6 OSU instead of 56-10.  

But what the Nebraska game did, just like the first 4 games, is put so much stuff out on the table, so many variations in what our offense is doing, that it's got to be tough on the opposing defenses.  And who knows what is still up Day's sleeves? I don't think we've seen a single wildcat, or reverse, or double pass, or flea flicker, or jump pass.... and I'll bet before the season is over Day will use them all.

Well, his brother played here, so I would hear him out.  He could be upset about playing time or he could be upset about MSU's offense.

...and we learned in 2014 that in the games that really count, victory margin ALSO really counts.

Ryan Day is one bad dude, he is going to beat everyone by a comfortable margin - if possible - and they won't be able to keep us out. 

...and by comfortable, I mean a team like Wiscy, if we can beat them by  3 scores, that's comfortable.  If we win by 8 points, then we will hear how we "struggled"...

I know Meyer was the master psychologist, so to speak, but Day seems to have them mentally right and LOOSE at the same time.  I mean, it will be like that until we lose, right?

this stuff gets serious (and meaningful) about the first week of November. 

For me, until then, it's just fun seeing who bites the bullet each week. 

And I still believe it will be tough for us to get through our schedule undefeated.  It's not just the competition, it's hard to be FIRED UP for every single game. 

Happy with the season so far.  And it's fun watching these kids develop.
