Rutgers is definitely a free win for the football season.

Our stellar record of 4-3 against RU through 2015 is proof.

I should have known that, I was at the first Rutgers game way back in the Perles era when they beat us back in the 80's.

Really makes you wonder might have happened if he'd have gone with the DL youth movement after the Northwestern game.

The other thought that occurred to me was that the quote might have been a light jab at Malik.

Mark Staten said in one of his quotes that starting with the RU game, the defense began "playing with more chemistry".

Hmmm.

Hmmm.

If I'm a defensive coach I'm not really thrilled that our OL coach is commenting on the performance of our unit... Especially considering that the OL has experienced struggles of its own.

Dantonio quoted a Woody Hayes maxim earlier this year that you get 1 loss for every true freshman you play. MSU played 9, finished 3-9

All of them. It's pretty clear the program has collapsed under Dantonio.

Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.

Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Herbie brings up a valid point. We need to hear more fresh insights from posters like him.

Do you think Cox was disciplined for being injured for the UM game by being stripped of Captain the following week?

I won't shit on players for being injured at all and playing. I'm not a shit fan like a lot of people on tCock and some of the boners on here.

Riley wasn't the best Bullough, but he gave it his all.

Gaines sounds off.....

Kaleel Gains Reveals Reason Behind Transfer and Drama-Filled MSU Football Year

Mentally, having one of the worst seasons in MSU football history takes a toll on a player. When asked how players handled that, Gaines said, “After we lost that game to Indiana, people stopped caring and they were just trying to make it through the rest of the season. And you know when you keep losing people start to argue and point fingers. But, nobody fell out and the team was never really divided.”

“What I appreciated was the fact that the players who actually play and are the known names never treated the players who didn’t play differently. That is why we were all close on the team. Those were my brothers. But yea, if you don’t play, they still treat you the same. But, the coaches treat people super different. I mean it’s different, but it’s not. That’s just how sports are. If you have a big name, you can get away with almost everything. You can definitely get away with more than those who don’t have a big name. That’s just how it is even though it’s not cool. I guess he’s helping the team and you’re not,” Gaines said.

This was a rough year that no one saw coming, especially when it came to the sexual assault charges. “The state of the team at that time was something I had never witnessed. It was crazy. The coaches were obviously more strict and overprotective because of what was going on. They made us do more team activities together like when they had us go to the Breslin and watch MSU basketball play Miami during March Madness. They were always trying to keep the team together so that we wouldn’t be out partying and they could keep an eye on us.”
