Well, it’s already bye week time.

And that sure won’t slow us down from previewing the weekend ahead.


3 Things We Want To See

Complete chaos

While the Spartans are away, we want to watch the rest of the college football world burn.

Ole Miss stunning Bama? The Horned Frogs walloping the Buckeyes? SMU pulling an App State? Texas and USC playing a game with relevance?! THE MORMONS SINKING THE BADGERS?! GIVE IT ALL TO US.

Some kick-ass crockpot recipes

Treat yo self this bye week. My go-to football crockpot recipe? SAUSAGE DIP.

Just three ingredients: 1) One package of sausage (cook that on a stove first) 2) one pack of Velveeta cheese and 3) one can of Hormel chili.

Throw all that into a crock pot, dip some chips into that and shave five years off your life for this great-tasting dip. It’s worth it.

Leave your go-to football dish in the comments. DO IT.

Another Lions loss

Hey, I like the Lions. But I also know they’ll never do anything of substance, ever. If the USS Matt Patricia is going to go down fast, I at least want it to be entertaining. They’re not going to do jack-diddly-poo this season, so might as well give us some outstanding content along the way.

2 Key Stats


Yes, that’s Mark Dantonio’s record against UM…but that’s not the point of that record. At least not right now.

That’s also Dantonio’s record the game after the first loss of the season. Even more impressive, Dantonio’s teams are 6-1 after their first loss of the last seven seasons.

Am I guaranteeing a win at Indiana next week under the lights? I mean…


The amount of days it took for my body to cool down from Tempe’s 108 degree weather. Let’s go ahead and never play there again (great city though, just hotter than hell).

1 Gambling Pick

No Spartans pick to make, so I’ll go ahead and pick my lock of the week from ANY other game this week. I have no excuse to be wrong — I’m literally picking any game I choose. Boy will this be embarrassing when this doesn’t hit.

Give me...LSU +10.5 over Auburn.

Record: 1-1
