I saw that coming but that didnít make watching it any easier. I called it 31-16 in a contest to score one of Bennie McCreadyís awesome Michigan football prints on The Fort…Bennie tells me I took second out of over 400 responses. Weee for me.
The team played hard and the defense made hits. All that will be remembered is that we couldnít handle the heat and took a brutal beating. Maybe it was the green uniforms against the field, but at times I swear there were a bakerís dozen Spartans in the box. It felt like 4th and 48 more than the one time it was really 4th and 48.
Whatís next? Another Come to Jesus meeting? JC is Platinum on Delta by now. Thatíd be #4 in 2013 according to my unofficial count. Feels like splitting the next 4 games would be a great result.
Mood > Battered:
Thatís 98% The Blockhams, and 2% MVictors (black eye). Thatís a cheerful trend:chart
Uniforms > Nothing of note beyond Dr. Sapís concern about the helmets in low light. Clear now that LHS will remain through the season. Uniform Timeline here for your reference.
Bruce Gets a Paul > One Michigan Man took home a Paul Bunyan Trophy and thatís longtime #1000SSS media man Bruce Madej who was honored by the MSU athletic department for his service. Bruce received a replica Paul, an announcement in the press box, and a hearty handshake from Spartan PR man big John Lewandowski (right):
