EMU at Michigan State open thread

September 22, 2012

Game day!

We’ve looked at EMU’s depth chart. We’ve looked at Michigan State the team, and we interrogated a Michigan State blogger.

Now it’s just time to sit back and enjoy the game. The weather forecast is calling for a 50% chance of rain, with temperatures steady in the mid-50s for most of the day, and winds in the low teens. This could make for a sloppy game on Michigan State’s natural grass field, which some people say will hurt the passing games, and some people say will help the running games, and some people say will help the defenses, and some people say will help the offenses…

If you’re staying in Ypsi, the game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network (online too, but probably $$$), as well as the usual WEMU 89.1 FM radio broadcast, also streamed online.

Open thread is now open. Discuss!

    I wish Eastern a well played game even if the odds are stacked against them on the other side with the best players money can buy. Since Spartan Stadium is uncomfortable and makes me feel claustrophobic for some odd reason, I’ll be watching from the comfort of my entertainment room.

    I’m proud of how competitive we played today. I do however disagree was the the lack of balance. With Benz getting the nod, I expected a decent air attack.

    In contrary to that, running the ball kept the clock ticking and gave us a chance in the fourth against a better team.

    I expect Coach English to express this loss as a mental victory. There’s a lot of confidence to be gained by the player in this one.

    Go Eagles.

    I thought the defense played well although it was helped by MSU receivers dropping the ball. The biggest concern I have going into the MAC season is the lack of a running attack which is puzzling as most of the offense line is experienced and back from last year and so are the main running backs. Benz seems to take care of the football when he is QB in the passing attack, many of his throws yesterday were very accurate and crisp.
