As some of you may have seen via Twitter - Somebody agreed to marry me this week! Accepting all congratulations and donations to the cause. Contact @ManCaveQB for more details. I'm also blogging presently about 30 miles North of South Bend as I prepare for a weekend of taking down Sparty. It's only 3am and I've been traveling for 13 hours on no sleep but I need to make sure you know about the podcast this week. I spoke with THE Michigan State blogger extraordinaire - Hondo Carpenter of about the upcoming game. Hondo is more in tune with Sparty than you could ever imagine and with his connections to the program and others in the state of Michigan - he knows A LOT about Brian Kelly and the under the skin fued between the Irish head coach and MSU's lead dog- Mark Dantonio. Hondo knows its personal and explains why in the show. Also returning to the Man Cave QB is John Walters. He saw a big silver lining in the Purdue win and isn't ready to send...

Dantonio on 'high-profile' Notre Dame matchup

EAST LANSING, Mich. Respect. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio was asked why it seems like there is more respect in his teams games with Notre Dame rather than the Michigan game.
