    Is it just me or does it seem almost ridiculous to have Payne or Nix screening Appling way out past the key on almost every possession? I can’t ever remember Appling dumping the ball over the screen on under to a big. The bigs roll to the basket but are too far out to get the ball where they would be a dangerous threat. Just an observation that continues to perplex me. Seems that our sets look stale and obvious. Hope to see something different in today’s game. Go Green.

    Anyone see the hit on Bulldog QB Maurry after he threw INT? Is there a difference in officiating from one conference from the next in college football?

    Thanks for the recent posts, Brian. Good win by the Spartan women! Good to see Hines with a career high and MSU at 7-0!

    Too bad Georgia couldn’t hold on against Bama. Good game, except for the outcome. I am SO tired of Crimson sewage!

    Joe’s tweet cover the football season for the B1G pretty darn well.

    Nobody wants to play in Jaguar Stadium, nobody. It’s an awful field and worse fan facilities than in ORL.

    How ’bout that B1G champ game – if we actually had an OC in EL imagine what we could have done . . . Oh that’s right – I’m a Spartan Alum – there’s always next year. What a year to be 6-6. I didn’t know we hired Lloyd Carr, Jr 6 year ago until I heard the comment that next year the program is going to evaluate younger players. Glad our coach is still living in the the 1970s – how much do we pay this guy?

    In terms of dollars per B1G win, Dantonio’s a bargain.

    Go Volleyball!!

    Aieeeeee! Volleyball team knocks off defending NCAA champs UCLA, 3-1!

      You would sure think that the btn would cover NCAA games like this, their viewership would triple over the silly studio shows which nobody watches. you’d think after 5 years that Silverman could figure out the games are the stars of his little regional network, not the people yakking about them. NCAA games have a whole different drawing power than regular season games in all Sports. Guy is such a mental midget, you’d think he’d give a set of knock-off golf clubs to somebody with a broken 5-iron.

  9. avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

    Let’s see the btn is having a bowl selection show were they are repeating what they are told by espn. Sounds about right. Until Fox figures it out and fires Silverman, btn will stay as a little regional cable station. (kinda like espn does with the March Madness show from CBS, and come to think of it the comparison is valid: espn is to CBS as btn is to espn)

  10. avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

    Here is a testimonial to where the btn is in the pecking order:

    Denzel Valentine: “After I got dunked on, I was determined to score, so as soon as Keith (Appling) threw me the ball, I shot it and it went it,” Valentine said of his made 3-pointer. “I felt a little bit better about myself; hopefully that (dunk) doesn’t get on (ESPN) top 10 plays.”

    What a surprise, Cracker writes a piece that is negative about Spartan Sports. Who’d a thunk it, DHSFB doesn’t even get invited to the Football Banquet and with this story added to the rest of back stabbing of the Basketball team, I’d lay odds Coach Izzo doesn’t want him any place near that team either. What a great hire by LSJ as the beat writer to replace a legend. He has alienated the entire Athletic Department.
