    pretty darn exciting game.

    I have been a Patriots fan back to the 20th century. It was challenged with a scUM alumni at the helm and delfategate.

      So… Belichek’s filming of other teams’ practices (i.e., corporate espionage) a few years back did not bother you one bit? I find that hard to believe.

    First time in a looong time I have watched a Super Bowl from start to finish. A true classic that lived up to the hype and more.

      My sentiments exactly. I could typically not care less about the Super Bowl. This one intrigued me. I’m glad it did. It was epic.

    That ATL play calling, inside the 30 to salt the game with a field goal late, late in the 4gh, was nearly as bad as the Seahawks against the Pats on the goal line a few years back.

      You said it 79. What was a sure chance for a field goal by simply rushing the ball 3 times and kicking a three pointer for an eleven point lead became a legendary blunder with the 2nd down pass and subsequent sack of QB Ryan, followed by a holding penalty. Hey, let’s just see how good Brady and the Pats are dammit. Let’s give them the ball back and dare them to score…seemed to be the response to all slack-jawed fans of both sides in attendance –and, of course, those of us watching at home or in homes of friends. How did that work out Mr. Quinn?

      Oh–sideline–I assume that around halftime some of the bards had their pencils sharpened and had a headline and column or two in the oven proclaiming the Atlanta win by a coach now called the “Mighty Quinn.”
      That’s a sports/NFL headline you’ll not see in 2017.

      We were saying the same thing here.

    ICYMI @Tennessean staff picks for the Super Bowl. I’m going 30-27 Falcons.

    Joe Rexrode ‏@joerexrode 5h5 hours ago
    I liked the Falcons in this game, but who knew the Pats were going to go 1990 Broncos on us?

    Three years ago at the Michigan State-Georgetown game at MSG, Mark Hollis sat courtside next to Lady GaGa’s dad (who is an MSU grad).

    It really is this simple. An inexplicable and unforgivable coaching decision.

      From the article: “Since 2010, Dantonio’s Spartans have defied expert logic and have produced five seasons of at least 11 wins while finishing with a ranking in the top six three times.”

      We should keep that in mind.

      Also from the article: “You’re either with the team or against it.”

      The implication — that fans should continuously blind themselves to aspects of the program that might make it unrealistic to win 11+ games every year unto the next decade — seems, to me, to set fans up for unnecessarily hard (and all-too-frequent) disappointments. There are other, colorfully impolite, things I could add about the additional implication that, failing to be blinded, one is effectively spouting “Go Blue!” 24/7.

      In 2016, Dantonio’s Spartans defied expert logic and took a riches-to-rags nosedive that might happen to one major-college team once or twice in a generation. In two attempts, Dantonio’s Spartans defied expert logic and got outscored by a coach that Dantonio supposedly knows by a combined 80 points. These are part of the ride on the bandwagon; we should be able to temper our expectations with their examples without being menaced with thinly-veiled excommunication.

      Dantonio asked the early 2/3 of the 2017 verbal commits to not visit other teams, etc., after committing to MSU. To a recruit, they did that. That speaks well for them. But that does not mean we should expect MSU to go 23-4 in 2020 and 2021. Let us see, first, how many of the new guys look like they belong on the field this fall — and more importantly, whether MSU will meet or exceed the experts’ prognostications of what “should happen” in 2017.

        The coaching staff has seemingly missed on the upside of several players recently, given the ineptitude of several units the past couple seasons, most notably the defensive backfield. Time will tell if the many deficiencies of several units will be corrected.
