Week 1 of the college football season is in the books, and it was not memorable. Here's the Tuesday Lowdown to help heal those wounds.
Yahoo!: Michigan State players share their critiques of Denard Robinson’s play on Twitter (then delete them)
File this one under "Sparty No!". Bonus points because it took place not on a gameday.
Trolling is the art of posting inflammatory messages about something
or someone on the Internet, and during the Alabama-Michigan game,
Michigan State players had trolling down to a science.
Of course the main target was Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson,
who had a less than stellar outing against Alabama. Robinson, who many
considered a Heisman contender, was 11 of 26 for 200 yards a touchdown
and two interceptions. He also managed just 27 yards rushing and a score
in the 41-14 loss.
Throughout the course of the game, Michigan State players chimed in
on Robinson's play. While most of the tweets have been...

AROUND THE WEB
The Michigan Wolverines fought valiantly against Alabama in a season opening 41-14 loss. However, they were overwhelmed by the Crimson Tide’s outstanding play in the trenches and their impressive wealth of talent. Alabama out-gained the Wolverines 431-269. That’s obviously not good, but that is standard operating procedure for Alabama’s defense. In last year’s national...
The Michigan Wolverines will host Air Force in their home opener on Saturday afternoon at the Big House. The game will kick off at 3:35pm and be televised on ABC. Michigan enters the game as a 21 point favorite.
A little about Air Force
The Falcons cruised to a 49-21 season opening win over Idaho State last week. They rolled 626 yards of offense, including 484 rushing yards. Their...
The Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans hate each other. It is not worth trying to put it any other way. Simply put, the hatred these two teams feel toward each other is almost beyond words.
But that does not stop either team from adding fuel to the fire. This time, it is the Spartans stirring the rivalry pot.
Following the Wolverines’ opening blowout at the hands of...
This may just be a shock to everyone, but players for the Michigan St. Spartans do not like Michigan. I know, just a crazy revelation. A few Spartan players let anyone who followed them know about it during the Michigan/Alabama game. Many of them cracked jokes and ripped on Denard Robinson, as the Crimson Tide [...]
THE RICH GET RICHER
Entering this weekend’s mega-showdown that wasn’t between Alabama and Michigan, there were plenty of stories that captured the attention of college football fans. How would Nick Saban’s defense handle Denard Robinson? How would Michigan hold up against the Crimson Tide’s running game? How much would Floyd Mayweather lose betting on the Wolverines? Wait, what? Oh yeah...
What do Michigan State players do while watching rival Michigan get slobberknockered by Alabama during last Saturday night's season opener? Tweet snarky remarks about Wolverine starting quarterback Denard Robinson, of course.
"Is this guy really a QB I'll say my mans (walk-on Tommy Vento) is a better QB lol," - linebacker Denicos Allen
While it is still very early in the college football season, after the first weekend of local Big Ten play, it’s clear another new Heisman Trophy contender may have emerged from the state of Michigan. Friday night in a nationally … Continue reading →
The first weekend of the 2012 college football season might have been lacking a bit when it came to compelling team matchups, but there were a lot of intriguing developments on the Heisman front: 1. Denard Robinson’s Heisman hopes shattered after the lopsided loss to Alabama I wrote before the season that the Michigan-Alabama game presented Robinson with a [...]
Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio wasn’t too pleased with the actions of some his players Saturday night on Twitter. During the course of Michigan’s 41-14 blowout loss at the hands of Alabama, a few different Spartan players took to the social forum to rip into their Big Ten rivals, more notably Michigan QB Denard Robinson.
Here are some of the tweets via the Detroit Free...
Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges touched on several subjects Tuesday afternoon including his game plan against Alabama, the performance of Denard Robinson, and the offense as a whole heading into Air Force.
They must have been overrated.
On a hand-wringing Monday morning, that is the most prevalent post-game analysis for the whipping Michigan took at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.
The pre-season pollsters simply got it wrong. For all the hype the flash and burn spread offense and talent of quarterback Denard Robinson, and the supposedly strong secondary these...
The first Saturday of college football made me look like a genius.There were three dual-threat quarterbacks I was very intrigued about, none of which have the name of Matt Barkley.But all three I correctly predicted their play.First off was Braxton Miller. As soon as Urban Meyer went to Ohio State to coach, I immediately thought Miller could emulate Tim Tebow in the Florida offense...
East Lansing, Mich. — “Our guys need to keep their mouths shut, especially those that aren’t even playing.”
These are the fiery words that came out of Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonios’ mouth during a press conference on Tuesday when talking about the tweets that some of his players sent during the Michigan and Alabama game that bashed the in-state rival’s...
