scUM vs. MSU game thread (call your shot)

scUM vs. MSU in the big house.

I like MSU a lot. MSU wins 48-24. Dennard Robinson knocked the fuck out today. Toto, we aren't in Kansas anymore!

Hmmmmm.....timing on your prediction is suspect. I wonder what is was 47 min earlier....

I like MSU, but in a close one, under 10pts.

MSU 42 UM 34

I'm going to go with a blowout. MSU 42-17. Greg Jones knocks Robinson into next Tuesday, RichRod plays him with a concussion, gets knocked out again. Forcier shows he's awful again.

I like MSU to beat the spread and beat UM straight up but I'm with Furls in that UM doesn't get to 30.

I think Fairvis is close.

Beginning of the unraveling for UM today.

This is a disaster for vegas. A new piece of pretty critical info about 2 hours before kickoff. The line is no good, there will be a lot of late cash on MSU. I think it will be the smart cash too.

As for the timing of my prediction, I liked sparty to win, but not by that much. I thought MSU would make scUM play below 30pts, but I didn't really decide until the end of the first half that MSU could go for 50.

I knew that too. 4 1/2 all week for the most part and lead and I took MSU w/points in the Pigskin Pickem contest.

For real?

He missed his picks?

Can you still make the late picks up to 5 minutes before game time or do they all have to be in by 1155?

Nah he can get his in there 5 min before, but he didn't for his 3:30 games, he's officially 0-10 as of now.

He can still beat our score from last week though. :hide: :pb:

He and I tied in our first 4 today :pb: ::doh:: :spanky:

If that continues, well my wife is visiting family tonight, so I'll be unsupervised, which likely means :partyers: , without the dude to pick me back up.

And Denard is human after all. 3 straight plays where he wasn't rushing the ball, I bet that won't happen again.

Sparty needs to set up the running game by throwing against this terrible secondary.

Sparty is determined to do this the hard way. They are running the ball against the worst pass defense ever (only a slight exaggeration). In any case, it appears to be working.

Poor Denard, two crushingly bad INT's in the endzone from less than 10 yards out...

Michigan getting exposed on both sides of the football by a fast, physical team.

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked. ;-) ;) :wink:

Michigan's defense is bad. You know so far they have beaten that bad Indiana team, a UConn team that just lost to a bad Rutgers team, they squeaked past UMass, ND is bad (we know that now), and a MAC team. They just are not that fucking good and D-Rod's numbers are against some pretty lousy teams.

Game over. Good Job Sparty.

Anyone wondering if DeTard played himself out of the Heisman today? I am guessing this is the first of several games in which he will.

Michigan needs to do is beat PSU and Purdue to get to a Bowl game. I am not sure either of those teams can outscore Denard. Illinois is interesting they might just give these guys fits.
