Totally different than last year's W over UGA. This was almost a completely different team. Thoughts?

Even though it is a mediocre bowl game, it is a great way to cap off a disappointing season and build momentum for next year.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Yeah because beating a good Georgia team really gave us momentum coming into this season

"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
So you think it would be better for the program to lose?
but winning 2 straight bowl games would be cool.
Agree. I think TCU is also a good matchup for us and for once we aren't playing a much "better" team.
No just saying it doesn't give you momentum it's a win just like every other win.
This. Plus, it couldn't hurt for Dantonio's bowl record to keep moving towards .500.
7-6 looks better than 6-7, 2 in a row, Nationally televised prime time win.
For 2013? It means very little. On defense just keep doing what you do and don't get hurt. On offense I would say build OL chemistry, but seeing as 2 of them won't be playing next year and Allen won't be at C they will be starting at 1 again next season on that. QB/WR chemistry would be the place where the extra game can be most beneficial and Maxwell hopefully feeling more comfortable in general.

It means 15 extra practices. Invaluable for young players. It may be the final game for several underclassmen, so it will have some significance.
I'm disappointed that MSU is playing a game in Arizona that's not inside the Grand Canyon. Hollis failed us this time.
gHost, beating TCU means little for MSU FB in 2013, barring a breakout performance from Maxwell and Co. TCU has a very good pass D, so a strong passing performance would indicate that MSU has a chance to take a real step forward in '13.
A W in which MSU wins with D and a pounding run-game means little; Bell is likely gone and the D has always been steady. Have to look for improvement in the problem areas; OL/WR/QB/Special Teams.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
It's been 10 years since MSU has done that (Citrus and Silicon Valley Bowls). It's a positive for the program to try to start some sort of streak.
Not nearly as big as last year but momentum going into the off season will be huge. A win Will create a new focus and determination.
The moment is eternal
Huh? Everything I've seen suggests their run D is much better than their passing D. Maybe that's just a function of playing in the suddenly 'sling it around' BigXII.
A ground and pound win would mean a lot to me because this is like our 3rd chair O Line at this point vs a very very good rushing D.
Lets not forget that we'll most likely have a healthy Sims, so Maxwell gets his security blankie back, and he is a freaking NIGHTMARE to deal with.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
Hahahaha....you Canadians are cute. Frogs by 3 TD's.
Yea, run D looks better than their pass D, but that's mostly the function of their conference. Yardage D is "only" 53rd nationally, but given that they faced the #2, 3, 5, 6, 7 passing offenses in the country this year, I'd take that with a pretty large grain of salt. They finished 29th in pass eff. D (54% allowed, 21 TDs, 21 INTs, 3rd nationally in INTs)), which is pretty solid given the O's faced (#5, 7, 9, 12, 17 and 24 in pass eff. O. ).

Rocky, can we ban this troll?
TCU can't even score 21 points let alone on our Defense but I'm seeing a low scoring game for both.
