So Harbaugh is 1-1 in Bowl Games, 1-2 vs Sparty, and 0-2 vs OSU?

Rough start...
Bowl games really don't matter to me unless it's the Rose or CFP. The 1-2 to Sparty and 0-2 to OSU irks way more for sure.

But I'm just way more pissed off that he's wasting an elite defense away just like he did in 2016 bc they can't put together a freaking respectable offense.

They were an elite defense in 2016. If it's actually possible- they might be a better defense this year- starting 11 wise- than they were last year. Maurice Hurst, Chase Winovich, and Rashan Gary are flat out elite players. Gary is really starting to come into his own and he is scary talent wise. He leaps off the screen. He is causing problems for the offense damn near every snap even if he's not getting sacks. That's a top 5 NFL draft pick in the very near future. Josh Mettelus is a way better strong safety than Dymonte Thomas could have ever dreamed of being. Devin Bush is flat out better than Ben Gedeon could have ever dreamed of being at MLB. LaVert Hill is way better way faster than I thought he'd be.

Just a shame that a team with a defense this good is going to be wasted- yet again. If they had even B+ offense this is a lethal team bc they got an A+ defense and some really solid special teams units and a hell of a kicker.

Bryce Love is avg 8.9 yards/carry today. 2 yards behind his season avg. 

Also somehow Arizona's QB had 14 carries for 327 yards today. Also was 11/12 passing.

Fuck this game. Fuck this offensive coaching staff. Fuck Michigan State.

Why the FUCK do they always get the FLUKEY plays in this game? Lewerke fumbles the snap and then picks it up and lands short of the 1st but lands on his own fucking player and rolls over him for a 1st down? Un-fucking-believable.

Why does MSU always get the fucking voodoo in this game? Can we just drop MSU from the schedule? Fuck them. We don't need to play them.
heheheheheee- there is a filter thingy I've been playing with that exchanges words outside of users ability to alter... Now, I wouldn't do that to y'all, because we're mostly all adults here... but... if i were to do such a thing it would have rendered this post something like:

friend, that's a whole lotta humpin'.... you must be a young man, no?  I usually tap out after two or three sessions within a 24 hour window, nowadays.

back on topic:  these games are rivalry for a reason.  enter today into lore.

MCTERP, It's a good point.    It is actually a strategy now, which is why you almost always see it once a team crosses the 50 yard line.

In fact, I am sure you thought Ohio State got some of those yesterday, and you are right.  I can tell you, their coaches are saying " it is about damn time" since they have been wanting Barrett to do that for two seasons now.  If you have man to man, throw the damn ball and let your WR make a play or maybe you get a PI call.  That's been happening to OSU relentlessly for two seasons and yesterday was the first time I can recall they got some going their way.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I'd note that ND benefited from significant turnovers against Michigan State, who I think is a solid team.

Of course I also think Dantonio can coach a lick.

MSU might beat somebody else good this year.

Pretty clear last year was an aberration for Dantonio.

It's well established that the ND game has little effect on MSUs season historically. And as you point out, MSU made some critical errors in that game that ND capitalized on. I still believe that if LJ doesn't fumble going into the end zone that game ends up being a one score affair either direction. 
I don't think this is 2013 situation where MSU loses to ND and ends the season as arguably the best team in the nation but I do agree that there is a good chance this isn't the last marquee win  We'll see. This is still a crazy young team that will have its moments.

Yeah, that was surprising.  The guy can flat out coach.
Congrats to Sparty, most around here know I'm a t-shirt Michigan fan but that has to feel good for MSU fans to take out their rival like that.  I only managed to catch a little of that game because my own team was busy almost killing me by myocardial infarction in a 2OT game against the Purple Menace, and my i s c & a aggie wife's team was also in its own painful episode against Nick Satan, but what I did manage to catch of UM-MSU was interesting.

I think ND is actually pretty solid this year too.  Honestly their most impressive performance was only losing by 2 to a Georgia team that I think is the 3rd best team in the nation.

It just occurred to me that there were two helmet schools from the B1G celebrating the 20th anniversaries of their split MNC's.

They both lost.
