Cubs or Tribe? Western Michigan New Years Six?
November 1st, 2016 by Jeffrey Lubeck

Three questions for Membership!

Will the Chicago Cubs take game six or are the  Cleveland Indians going to celebrate a World Series Title?

Will the Broncos of Western Michigan run the table and represent the state of Michigan in a New Years Day Six Bowl?

What would be the worst thing revealed by a hacking of TUS Foundation emails?

    1) Tribe all the way

    2) YES

    3) Investment by Foreign Governments, latent favoring/following of Arrogant Arbor in any sport, or blatant lack of sleep

    1. I like both the Cubs and the Indians. My heart is with the Cubs, my head says the Tribe.
    2. Broncos run the table!
    3.

      As Cleand as Snow driven upon by a team of Clydesdales, that is. What I would like to see.
      1. tOSU beats scUM
      2. Wiscy wins out and beats tOSU
      3. LSU beats TA&M
      4. Auburn wins out and beats FLA in the SEC title game.
      TADAAA! two two loss teams in the national championship playoffs with griping, cursing, wailing, gnashing of teeth unheard of since the candidates for POTUS were unveiled.

      Yes, you found me ought. I am an anarchist.

        Not sure that last statement was ever in doubt by some of us.

        Michigan State defeats Saginaw Valley State, 87-77, to close out the exhibition season. Freshmen Miles Bridges and Cassius Winston led the way for MSU with 20 and 18 points, respectively

    1) I want the Cubs to win but suspect they will not.

    2) No. I see 3 games they might well lose.

    3) Linda and Kyle both put in friend requests to Jim Harbaugh on Facebook.

    While the Cubs throttle the Tribe 7-2 into the 6th. I hit the Pause button as Fox fills time with celebrity shots and worthless anecdotes from Joe Buck…and re-watch Northwood @ MSU. Instant conclusion:

    MSU is a Top 25 team but not elite in regular season. Who knows in post-season.

    TumTum: do not believe the hype – he still cannot shoot and will not drive in the B1G games.
    E Harris: No different than last year. He is what he is. Not really an MSU type guy. No sense of team basketball.
    A. Ellis: Matured physically, but is still the same streakiness on court.
    E. Goins: Valuable, but still limited on O.
    K. Ahrens: Will grow into serviceable role-player but not much this year.
    M. McQuaid: Gutsy, but do not be surprised by sophomore slump.
    N. Ward: Great footwork, soft-hands, good touch and great positioning. He has lost 23-pounds. NW is a MSU and Izzo kind of guy.
    C. Winston: I can see him running the show. Needs time and patience.
    M. Bridges: Hmm… think he is good now? Wait ’til he loses the baby fat.
    M. Van Dyk: Got his scholarship. Smart and can jump out of the gym. Like him.
    G. Roy: Walk on and I love that he earned his spot. This is what is fun about college bball and TI.
    C. George: Yes, there is insider stuff, but he has beefed up.
    J. Langford: injured – should play in exhibition game #2
    G. Schilling: injured surgery – this is a big loss as no return date established.
    B. Carter: injured surgery – although a grad-transfer he is an MSU kind of guy. Big loss as no return date established.

      So what I hear you saying is that Winston will end up getting the majority of the time at PG and this team will go as far as the Frosh can take them.

    Cubs force a game seven (7).

    Deyonta Davis scored 17 for the Memphis Grizzlies last night (7-for-8, six rebounds, two blocks). That’s more than he scored in any game last year for Tom Izzo and the Spartans. A 7-footer who couldn’t do “shucks” for Izzo? 🙂

    As for TUS Foundation Emails …
    -That Kindle is really Jimmy Hoffa, and the NFR was / is his hideout.
    -That GoSt8Go rarely watches all 60 (or 40) minutes of a game.
    -That MESH is really a front for witness protection.
    -That Jeff is afraid of heights, and that all of the pictures in MESH were taken by Linda.
    -That Andary has won a number of humanitarian and nice-guy awards (and carried Jeff in junior hockey and academically at Michigan State).
    -That Jeff has never run more than 2 miles at one time.
    -That Siri is really AtlSpartan’s voice, not Janice’s.
    -That USMC purposely misspells words just to test our attention to detail.
    -That USMC and Meg Ryan were an item on the set of Top Gun.
    -That USMC is really a Russian operative named Yuri.
    -That Trophy is a covert agent for the CIA.
    -That GoB sits in a luxury suite in Spartan Stadium.
    -That 79Spartan is a cattle rancher and Godfather over the Omaha slaughterhouses.
    -That 89Chem still uses a slide rule, given to him by USMC.
    -That Dr. Muffin didn’t shoot the bear hanging over his fireplace, but rather wrestled it to the ground and took it with his bare hands.
    -That BostonSpartan has no secrets … she is genuinely the sweet, kind, generous, intelligent person we know her to be.

      That USMC is really a Russian operative named Yuri. – I can only think that you only saw part of an email where I was discussing an arial altercation I had with Yuri Toon. it was like kissing your sister – a draw

      That USMC and Meg Ryan were an item on the set of Top Gun – Actually it was Kelly, who then switched sides

      That USMC purposely misspells words just to test our attention to detail. – ya figured that out dog ya?

    This just in, Per Matt Charbonneau at the sNews:

    “Our plans are not to take the redshirt off Messiah deWeaver,” Dantonio said. “You never know what’s going to happen. As I said earlier, Colar Kuhns is a non-scholarship guy, but he’s been in our system and knows our system. There’s a possibility of him as well. We’ll see how it all shakes out based on practice this week.”

    WMU will represent the G5 in a New Year’s Six bowl — but not in the FBS Semifinals.

    1. Answering this for game 7.
    Corey Kluber is 2-0 in the World Series against the Cubs but pitching on 3 days rest. Kyle Hendricks led the NL in ERA (2.05). The starting matchup is intriguing. I think it was a mistake for the Cubs to use closer Aroldis Chapman in game 6 last night after he pitched extensively in game 5. IMO the edge is with Cleveland to win game 7 and take the Series with home field advantage and a rested bullpen.

    2. Broncos may have a tussle with Toledo and in the MAC Championship game but will run the table.

    3. TUS Executive Leadership is NOT clean as the driven snow. 🙂

    For those who may have wished Francona was the Tiger manager…..He had Miller warmed in the bullpen but still allowed Kluber to come back out to start the top of the 5th inning down 3-1 to the Cubs in game 7 of the WS.
    A Brad Ausmus-like non-move for sure….presto Diaz hits a lead-off home run and the Cubs (my new team) is up 4-1.

    Epic game 7! It was the cherry on top of the intriguing match-up of teams with a combined 176 years without a title. Well worth watching until the last out. Starter pulled prematurely. 3 run lead extinguished by a 3 run homer in the 8th inning given up by an exhausted closer. Extra innings. Rain delay. Bullpen that had not trusted needed to close it out. And much more. It wasn’t pretty. But it was epic.

    Once again the B1G is putting the cart before the horse: Punishment instead of prevention

    ROSEMONT, Ill. – The Big Ten has taken several steps to further clarify and enhance the replay process for plays involving potential health and safety concerns, as follows:

    In cases where a player is incapacitated due to a potential injury resulting from a hit to the head or neck area, the game will be stopped in order to provide the Replay Official with more time to ascertain the legality of the play. While all plays are reviewed in the Big Ten, this stoppage indicates to those watching the game that a formal review process is taking place.
    The Independent Medical Spotter, who is positioned in the replay booth for the second consecutive season, will continue to collaborate with the Replay Official in situations where the Spotter has clear, reasonable visual evidence that a player displays obvious signs of possible head injury, disorientation or is clearly unstable.
    (YUP some guy/gal watching on TV not looking in the kids eyes is really going to KNOW what’s going on – this is criminal neglect)

    In situations where it becomes apparent that the player will remain in the game and the signs have not been recognized by medical personnel or the on-field officials, the Spotter has the authority to alert the Replay Official that the game should be stopped for a medical timeout.
    The Replay Official will continue to have the ability, and responsibility, to independently review potential targeting plays that are “clear and obvious” and not seen, or called, on the field. Targeting occurs when a player takes aim at an opponent for purposes of attacking, whether the crown of the helmet is used to make forcible contact, or whether there is forcible contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent that goes beyond making a legal tackle, a legal block, or playing the ball.

    This last part of the statement is absolutely CYA:
    Protecting the health and safety of our students competing in intercollegiate athletics will continue to be the highest priority for the Big Ten and its member institutions.

    Once again Delooonie proves he is all about the $$$ and not about the students
