I would rather have it on ESPN news as well.. BTN means I have to stream it through my laptop instead of the Xbox.

10am kick for me. When the fuck is this game again? After Michigan?

Consensus: MSU

Most surprising flop of the season: Notre Dame, Michigan State or Oregon?

Ask Austin: A not-so-foolproof plan for Michigan State to pull off an upset

Couch: A half-dozen reasons MSU might beat Michigan

History-is-on-MSU’s-side hypothesis No. 5

MSU is 8-2 for games that took place on Oct. 29 going back to the 1930s, having won those eight games by an average score of 35-11, which, of course, was the score of MSU’s win over the Wolverines the last time they visited Spartan Stadium in 2014. Coincidence? No flippin’ way.

Also, MSU has won its eighth game each of the last three times it began a season 2-5 — in 1994, ’81 and ’73. You just can’t make this stuff up.

We need to win games. Give the young kids something to build on for next year. Let them see the progression and the payoff.

You can't throw off the other team if you keep running plays that work. Eventually they'll get tired of stopping the horrible plays that don't work and you'll win.

With a name like that, he's destined to conquer Wall St.

No fucking chance whatsoever. Even if, by some stroke of luck, we get to six wins, we'll be in a December game televised on TNT or Lifetime. Maybe we'll get the Poulan Weedeater Bowl.
