this is awful... I don't know why I allow myself to suffer like this...
For the love of Trevor...™
Gee thanks for the reminder.
I dont think I will ever be able to watch that game again, ever.
First time watching it on TV. It's amazing how the MSU D turns it around in the 2nd Q, I think State holds them to -3 yards.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Baker was a half-step away from breaking a 63 yard TD there. Wow. Jackson looks like a beast under C.
I can appreciate the game now. Great game between two great teams.
Still haven't watched it since attending the game- don't have the heart to.
A Rose Bowl would soothe the pain to the point where I'd be able to watch it.
That throw was a laser beam.
Awareness for Dennard was great; left his man, came up and blew up that screen.
UW's WRs were not great by any means. Total coverage play there, Wilson had no where to go on that pass.
WI couldn't handle Martin's speed. I don't know how good their route running is, but MSU is going to trot out 2-3 guys with K-mart's speed at WR this year.
Nichol to Cunningham. AWARENESS 99 D.Mcc, I didn't realize Gus Johnson actually said that
Bell is one hell of a back.
This game gave us a glimpse of how good the run game is going to be in 2012. The o-line really came into their own.

That's hilarious Definitely missed that the first time.
Is Conroy back for the Spartans next year?
Yes, 5th year senior.
And for the record, I will never watch that game again until we go to the Rose Bowl and/or BCS playoffs.
Yep, as a SR
I'm watching it slightly delayed (laundry day), so I just saw Denicos' sack on Wilson. Defense played the best Q of D of the year.

Thank you both.
Pass Pro was pretty darn solid this game, btw.
One thing Wisconsin did well with Wilson was rolling him out. Words can't describe how much it annoys me that we don't do so with Martinez.
I originally had Bell down for 1300 yards this season. I may have to revise that to 1500+. Good lord he's good.
I hate the final score as much as anyone, but let me tell you, our 2nd Q performance there was just awesome. Our second drive of the quarter was just ridiculous:
- Cousins with a perfect 13 yard bullet to Bell in between 3 defenders
- Cousins with an 18 yard pass to Martin, leading him perfectly to his outside shoulder over the defender
- Next play: Cunningham making an amazing leap ("climbs a ladder") for an 11 yard catch while being smothered by 3 defenders
- Next play: Nicol lateral to Cunningham. I was just kept yelling "are you shitting me" on that one. Even watching it again right now I can't believe how awesome that play was. Listen to the crowd during the play: they are like WHOA when the lateral happens and that quickly turns to mayhem when BJ dives into the endzone.
- Next play: then while everyone is still scratching their head around that last play and we line up for a normal extra point, coach D calls a fake and runs it down Wiscys throat for 2 and a 22-21 lead. I'm up off my seat yelling at the TV: F you Wiscy, F you Belima,
I've watched a TON of State football, and this was the single best drive in MSU history on all levels: excitement, athleticism, skill, ballsy calls.
2 plays in the first half that could have changed the game:
1) Nick Hill's fumble
2) Conroy's missed 51 yarder
Hate the outcome, loved the game. One of the best that MSU has played... that 2nd quarter was the best one I've ever seen by an MSU football team.
Nίκη για MSU
