Max Bullough done at Michigan State

The Spartans will be without starting linebacker Max Bullough (sr.) for the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. In a statement by Mark Dantonio on Christmas night, it was announced that Bullough was suspended for the bowl game. Max is projected to be a fifth round draft pick in the upcoming draft. The team will make no further comment on the issue.

Whatever Max Bullough did will be unknown, but he was stupid enough to cost himself a spot in the “Granddaddy of them All”, the 100 Rose Bowl.

Rose Bowl Preview tomorrow…

Detroit Lions 2013: The Collapse, The Coach, and The Curse

The Detroit Lions lost an overtime snoozer to the Giants this past Sunday afternoon. They lost five of their last six and now sit at third place with a 7-8 record. The Lions have skidded out and they probably will fire Coach Schwartz. They have been dismal against .500+ teams since Schwartz joined the team.

The Good Bad and Ugly of Sports right now

The Good:

The Detroit Tigers hired Brad Ausmus to lead a revamped coaching staff that should invigorate next year's team. Last week Prince "Soft Pretzel" Fielder was traded away to Texas for second baseman Ian Kinsler. Kinsler is a 20-20 guy that slots in the top of the lineup while being cheaper then Prince's $219 million, 9 year deal. Cabrera moves back to first and Castellanos starts at third.
Projected Lineup:
Jackson, CF
Kinsler, 2B
Hunter, RF
Cabrera, 1B
Martinez, DH
Castellanos, 3B
Dirks, LF
Avila, C
Iglesias, SS
MSU Spartans: Football is heading to next weekend's Big Ten championship against #4 Team from Columbus, Ohio. Basketball is #1 after beating former #1 Kentucky, followed by a nailbiter against Columbia.

The (Better, but still) Bad:

The Red Wings ate 12-7-7 and have the #4 playoff seed, but prior to the last two wins they lost 8 of 9 with 5 straight overtime or shootout losses.

The Ugly:

Michigan football is 7-4 and they have fizzled from being a Big Ten championship contender to going to the Meineke Choker Care Bowl. The basketball team is 4-2 with losses to Iowa State and Charlotte. They squeaked out a 82-80 win against Florida State.
The Pistons may be 6-9, and giving up 100 points per game, but they are currently the #8 seed in the Eastern Conference.

2013 World Series Quick Preview: St. Louis Cardinals at Boston, plus Tigers update


The Boston hitters have to face a tough pitching staff and St Louis has rolled through the playoffs pretty easily. St Louis has a decent lineup that will get to the Red Sox pitchers eventually. Ortiz and Victorino won't hit enough, and no amount of facial hair will help. If I want to see beards, I'll watch Duck Dynasty at 10pm tonight. The Cardinals bats get hot, and St Louis is the 2013 champion.

My ALCS Prediction: Tigers vs. Red Sox

The Tigers face a tough challenge against the Boston Red Sox. It's a 2-3-2 format with the middle three in Detroit. The Tigers face a tough challenge as the Bloody Sox had the best record in the American League. Also, the Sox could go up 2-0 with the first two games at Fenway.

Langford's four TDs lead Michigan State to 42-28 win over Indiana..
