Stuff You Must Read Right Now
Dulcet tones for all - Dolla Bill Doug from EDSBS has your buyer's guide to the announcers who describe our obsessions. Interestingly, Millen not included.
All Hail the Alphabetical - Appointment reading from Spencer Hall, majordomo of EDSBS.
Iowa worries about Denard - defensive analysis/expectation from BHGP.
SO true - The M-Zone is exactly right. After these infrequent losses to MSU, every Spartan fan you know, or encounter, will seek you out. I recommend booze.
Analysis of the week that was - Go Blue Michigan Wolverine looks back, but not in anger. What did Saturday mean? [Ed. Note - It meant our defense is just as bad as we thought.]
Big Ten Football
Power Poll, with extra cuteness - Who doesn't like pictures of puppies? Communists, that's who.
Special teams are "special" in the Big Ten this year. It's only a third of the game, no big deal.
MSU beat Michigan. Now what? - The Only Colors look ahead to the remainder of their season.
LEARN - Smart Football is, well, smart. Pay close attention to the piece on Norm Parker of Iowa, and also the part on Nebraska's inverted veer attack. I realize KSU is bad, but what Nebraska did to them last Thursday was impressive.
Looking ahead to the bye week - October 23, Eastern Market, Detroit, MI, 1-6 pm. The Fall Michigan Beer Festival. Be there. I will. [Ed. Note - WOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!]
