    I love everyone picking MSU. I love the underdog role even though we are the number 1 team in the nation playing at home. Just stupid imo.

    ya, even Herbstreit our boy said that Michigan State has a great chance and can win. Although he picked TOSU to win, he said that Michigan State will keep it real close the entire game.

    so much for the shutout. our offense was looking really shaky their for a minute. we are pretty lucky to have gotten out of that. 2 defensive scores can really give your team a lot of momentum. we just needed to get used to a close game since we havent experienced that yet

    Mixed feelings for me after watching the game.

    Beanie finally showing he is a stud RB and had a career day esp in the 1st half and at the end of the game, putting the game away with timely short yrd gains to convert 3rd downs. Although he was really fortunate that he was somehow able to get that ball back after he fumbled it. It would've been disastrous had MSU gotten a 3rd straight turnover right there close to the endzone. It still makes me nervous everytime he limps up after a hit...

    Boeckman after a decent 1st half, showed why some people are still nervous about him at the helm. The INT should never have happened. Sometimes taking a sack is much better than throwing a dangerous pass out there. His fumble, I don't even know what the hell happened there, its like the right side of the OL disappeared, hard to blame Boeckman on that one, esp since he was hit as soon as the ball was snapped.

    Hartline had a big drop on a pass that would've been a big gain.

    Thank God our defense is just incredible and held the vaunted MSU offense to around 180 totals yds, about 50+ yds rushing.

    Hopefully the boys learned something from being under pressure and tested late in the game and hopefully make them better in the next few games.

    Glad to see we got the win. I would love to know what happened to the offensive line for awhile. I believe that is why boeckman started looking shaky. Who would'nt in that situation. Great game by beanie and the defense. Im still not satisfied boeckman can throw a deep ball that well.

    This game should never have been this close but I am glad we were able to struggle and come out with a victory just to set reality in that you can lose (thankfully we didn't.)

    We made numerous stupid mistakes during this game. Many penalties that really hurt us.

    Our defense looked awesome today. Our D didn't allow a TD again this game and if not for those turnovers on offense we sail away win an easy win.

    Bring on Penn State.

    What the hell was wrong with Ben Person? 3 false starts? I think he had a holding call as well? Not to mention all the other penalties made today by everyone else. This is not a good sign when our next game is at a very hostile enviroment.

    the msu did a really good job blitzing. that's why i think there was so much confusion up front. that's why there were false starts and stupid holding calls. i am sure penn st is going to blitz us the same way. in all reality the two turnovers were bad. that's the only reason msu had a chance. boeckman needs to be a more accurate passer. too many balls have been under thrown. the defense looked good as always. i just hope they work out everything out this week. at penn state is going to be a tough one.

    Yeah with the meat of our schedule coming up this game was very beneficial. Plus it was awsome being in that stadium in the 4th quarter when it got really, really loud.

    Our D is insane, and the pride of our team this year. 3 points all day from their O? I'll take that.

    Was Washington the last game our first team defense gave up a TD? The kickoff return against NW doesn't count.
