If you don't know why then we can't help you. I just hope you're not going to say the NFL is more fun than college.
I might say that. The whole season isn't ruined based on one single game. My experience in 2015 wasn't that a game against Rutgers that is close is fun. It's stressful. It's not fun.

Everything surrounding the game is more fun in college. The game itself is better in the NFL.

We lost to Nebraska though.

I thought 2013 was a lot more fun. Expectations probably. I don't know. I think a sport where one game, or two, can ruin a season is fundamentally flawed. Assuming we're not taking the championship game of course.

I still love it and go to every game. But I don't know.

Travis, do you think 2015 kinda fell flat because MSU didn't go 12-0? My expectations were getting pretty high when they were 8-0 before the Nebby loss. Still a great season regardless of the poor ending.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
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.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
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.

Nothing more fun than watching two well coached high school wing T teams play. It's all relative.

No. The playoff was the goal and they made it. I don't know man. I don't have the words. But something about the playoff has somehow made the whole thing less fun. Maybe not. Maybe it's just because we suck now (maybe) and me and otpt are projecting. I don't know.

2015 was pretty emotionally draining. That team put you on a roller coaster. Michigan OSU Iowa Oregon. The Nebraska loss was draining too.

I'm all in for all home games this year and next. Then I'm retiring. Going to one or two a year and enjoying saturdays from my couch. This shit is tiring.

It was for me...which is why I think a lot of people are kind of worn out. We (sort of) reached the pinnacle and then just nosedived. We don't know what we are anymore. Can we get back?

How many of those Florida suspensions were on offense? Is that why Florida sucks hard?

Florida's offense has struggled for awhile. Obviously it didn't help having guys out. Michigan's D looked pretty good, as did Speight other than the picks.

Nah- football in general I think has lost my interest. The culture around it is odd. Maybe it's the peaked thing like trav said.

So you're saying when they interview NFL players and they say they'd rather suffer a head injury than a knee injury, you find that odd?

Yeah, I'm glad I had girls who just cheer for those guys. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't let my sons play, or at least I wouldn't encourage them.

If you're watching the Bama game they just alluded to what's wrong with college football. "Alabama's bottomless personnel resources," "the hidden arms race in college football," etc.

The only way to fix that is to stop the obsession with "national champion." Honestly who even gave a shit who won the big ten last year? It didn't matter. If teams regional championships actually meant something then there is something to fight for beyond being undefeated and trying to beat Alabama.
