1. Michigan State Offense w Alex Drain

Live and die by the big play. Offensive line uses nine guys but Kenneth Walker III is going to make guys miss and carry more on his back. Two speedsters and a QB who can hit them is our concern.

2. Michigan State Defense w Alex Drain

starts at 18:57

Bend don’t break versus bends but won’t break you matchup. Still go back to MSU quarters because they have MSU safeties.

3. Northwestern After UFR

starts at 34:12

Offense was unimaginative, got safeties in faces at the line of scrimmage (bad) but RBs dealt with them (good). Defense dominated; I was upset about the officiating, especially the chop block and the sideline judge.

4. Seth’s Hockey Podcast w David Nasternak

starts at 46:54

What happened versus WMU? They’re actually a good team. Wisconsin is not, but Moe stood on his head to keep the Badgers in it. Minnesota looks shaky, we find out about Penn State tonight.


Tonight’s featured musician is August Red, which is user Tom Nixon (class of ‘92)’s new band that pays homage to that late 70s and early 80s LA sound.

And because Sony bought Across 110th Street and slapped a claim on us, the opener and outro:

  • “The Employee is Not Afraid”—Bear vs. Shark
  • “Ruska Vodka”—Motorboat

If you or a friend made some good tunes and don't have a label out scrubbing for them we'd be happy to feature you.
