    Cannot wait for this game. I'm a huge Michigan State fan. Just wondering what the rest of you, from different parts of the nation, think of MSU and their program. Who you got for this game?

    With Max Bullough suspended, it's certainly going to be tough on the Spartans.

    They definitely will miss him. 3 hear starter, all big ten, 2nd team all american, 2-yr all academic Big Ten, and academic all-american. He was like a coach on the field, and the defensive QB, if you will. The good thing is that we have a fifth-yr senior ready to step in in Kyler Ellsworth. Kind of looking forward to seeing what he does with this golden opportunity for him.

    Just like they always do, Stanford will try to run the ball down their opponents' throats behind Tyler Gaffney and arguably the #1 offensive line in the nation. Michigan St has the #1 rushing D in the country, however. Sure, Ohio St and Nebraska had some success running the ball against Michigan St, but they run a lot of option plays (which Stanford does not).

    As a PAC 12 season ticket holder who watches Stanford play my alma mater ever yr, the X factor in this game without a doubt will be Stanford WR Ty Montgomery. Michigan St can't allow Gaffney AND Montgomery to both go off... For instance, when USC beat Stanford this yr, they gave up 158 yds & 2 TDs to Gaffney but held Montgomery to just 4 catches for 23 yds. With Michigan St all-world CB Darqueze Dennard covering Montgomery, I definitely like the Spartans' chances.

    Stanford is favored by 6 at most of the casinos here in Vegas. Taking Michigan St and the money line (betting the Spartans straight up without a pt spread) would be a nice payout...

    Stanford was without a doubt THE most over ranked team in the country. Not one, but two losses to unranked programs didn't even drop them out of the top 10. They got way too much credit for the win over Oregon, considering that The Ducks got blown out two weeks later by mediocre Arizona. Utah Was 2-7 in the PAC-12, with one of those wins coming vs. Stanford. The only thing that will ultimately stop Sparty is the same thing that does in every Big 10 team....you can't fly a bunch of corn- fed Midwestern boys to So Cal with all of that prime poon in the middle of winter and expect them to concentrate on the game. It just ain't gonna happen.

    My prediction: I will be piss drunk by kick and probably be chasing from the earlier games so whoever I take, go the opposite way

    If not for bullshit calls vs ND, MSU would be undefeated. Who would have predicted that going into the season? I didn't think they'd be any good after watching their offense totally stink the first few games. They've come along nicely. That said, I'm still a UM fan first. I just can't bring myself to following Sparty football.

    My main takeaway from the start of the Bowl Season is that I want Mace Windu to choke on one of those credit cards and fucking die. Fucking ad seams to run twice during every break.

    I'm for Stanford, that jumbo running package is fun to watch.
