All focus on the Wings and Pistons!
There's also the wolverines
All joking aside, tricky game for State today...can't take BYU lightly.
Only issue for Michigan is do they cover the 30-point spread? OSU nuked Rutgers last week.
When it comes to the Lions, I might just stop watching the games until Caldwell is fired. I'd like to see this team with a healthy Levy, Abdullah and Ansah but the overall lack of focus and discipline has to go back to the coach. Players are responsible for themselves but the coach is supposed to hold these guys accountable. He needs to go and let Quinn hire his first coach. This isn't a fair first year for him as GM.
Why would you stop watching because of Caldwell? Nothing is going to change when he is fired. The Lions are the Lions because of incompetent ownership.
State might not make a bowl game. I think they barely get in though. I thought they get 8-10 wins. Nope
Well, didn't expect that win. O-line and secondary are still utter garbage.
Looked like the classical choke, until Slay forced the Fumble...
Offense couldn't do squat in the second half...they were fortunate to have the short field to get the GW field goal.
(Yes, I watched the game. )
They were so bad in the second half that you'd think they bet on the Iggles or wanted Stafford on crutches.
Lol. This is why the lions will never be winners
Lose to bears. Titans. Beat the eagles
I'm 2-0 at Lion's games i have attended this year.
I'm da real MVP?
Apparently this is the first time ever western Michigan has entered the top 25 I. Cfb
There's been talk about the Tigers looking to cut salary this season and avoid the luxury tax... . Being willing to throw nearly $200m at Chris Davis last year says otherwise, imo. We might not make a big splash this year, but if Ilitch thinks we're at all close, I doubt we'll be shipping out anyone in important for prospects.
Stop getting hitters we need pitchers
well, we did that last year, too, with Zimmerman, Rodriguez, Wilson, and Lowe. Lowe was awful and Zimmerman was hurt. I wouldn't be surprised if we dip into the relief pitching free agency again at this point, though.
We had the perfect rotation, but decided it wasn't worth keeping.
So depressing... and then Price-Scherzer-Verlander-Sanchez-Porcello the following year. Absolutely ridiculous... and they were still swept.
That's because we need bullpen pitchers
With Sparty giving up 50+ points on NW, I shudder to think how many they could give up to Michigan or tOSU.
I guess. College football except the Spartans. And pistons are the only good teams in the state
At this point the MSU coordinators should start to worry if they are going to be there next year. I know they talk about continuity and whatnot, but this trend cannot continue without someone paying for it with their job.
In particular the defensive efforts have been pretty embarrassing when that is what you have hung your hat on. They miss Narduzzi a lot and it's very concerning.
Maryland and penn state are the bowl games
With State, you just have one of those down years following a lot of key departures from the year before. Hard to replace all the talent they've lost.
Michigan has a lot of seniors and upperclassmen this year. I wonder if they suffer the same fate next year or will Harbaugh's recruiting make up for the losses.
Unless you're Alabama, most programs deal with some dip in success. You can't win 10 games every year...it's hard to do. Sometimes you have a run of success with a class of players and when they leave/graduate, you fall back to earth.
Zenner makes a big play or does nothing. Hit or miss type of back.
Being a true sadist, appropriate of a Lions fan, I've been looking over the first round of the 2014 draft again. Painful.
"What about these guys Aaron Donald and Odell Beckham?"
"Nah, let's take a tight end."
So, Cleveland is going to the Series. How much will it sting if they win it all? At that point, I have to wonder if they'll pull the Royals and fallback down to earth afterward. Kinda disappointing the Tigers were so good for so long just to see teams from their own division step up and win (or possibly win) just to disappear again.
