Sagarin Ratings: MSU #61, Maryland, #71
Saturday, October 22, 2016.
7:30 pm ET.
Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium, College Park, Maryland
Weather: 51 degrees, windy
TV: BTN, should only be on the radio
Line: MSU by 3 (really?)
First - figure out the name to the stadium. Byrd Stadium? Capital One Field? Maryland Stadium? Gimme a break.
Second - as my buddy Spaz just put it "How much of the Sparty implosion is the delayed impact of Narduzzi leaving?" Well, no shit. This season has been an absolute turd on defense; no pass rush and a decimated linebacking corps = no defense. These guys are so out of position, it's pathetic.
Third, last week, despite the unfortunate events I went through, I did note that coach D put Tyler O'Connor back into the game in the second half. Why? Whenever a team throws for 400+ yards, as MSU did vs Northwestern, it means you lose. Only 51 yards on the ground? What??? BUT, GIVING UP 54 POINTS IS PATHETIC. TO NORTHWESTERN? MSU STINKS. Happy Homecoming.
This week, we are in College Park, Maryland. Lovely. I didn't know I was traveling to white-trash Melvindale.
|Lovely College Park, Maryland.|
|They moved this gem from Dearborn Heights or Melvindale to College Park|
Enough. Time for predictions from the Peanut Barrel:
ES - MSU 38, Maryland 31.
Skooz - MSU 41-37
Brock - Mary 66-15
Joe - MSU 23-17
