Here is your forum for in-game comments on the season's second and final exhibition tilt, tonight featuring the Spartans and the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks. The game preview, with viewing/listening options is here. KJ will be reclining in his luxury box at Breslin for tonight's game, noshing on caviar and foie gras as he takes in the action, but I'm sure a number of TOC regulars, possibly including myself, will be on hand to provide commentary.
As KJ noted in the preview, Nebraska-Omaha likes to play at a decidedly un-Big Ten tempo, so we could be in for an up-and-down game. MSU has shown a willingness in the past to run with its opponents in the non-conference before being fitted for the cement sneakers demanded by Big Ten play, so I'm putting the over/under on possessions for tonight's game at 75. It should be a good test for Korie Lucious, who will be returning after serving the first game of his suspension against SVSU. As noted in the preview comments, Mike Kebler will be out so we should get to see even more of Appling and Lucious as Lucas continues to play himself back into shape. Your comments on any of these topics, or the success of the recently unveiled "drag" offense are welcome. Enjoy the game.
