Walk the Line 2014: NCAA Wk 9 & NFL Wk 8 – 10/24/14

So some football team with a losing record from Ann Arbor is coming to East Lansing as 16.5-point underdogs on Saturday. That in itself is humiliating, but a cover by the Michigan State Spartans would be even better. Rivalry week is here at MSU, so Dan Krier & Brooks Laimbeer break down the big game on this week’s Walk the Line.

There are some other great NCAA and NFL matchups to talk about, but the Spartans vs. the Wolverines is all we students here at MSU really care about. Go Green!

This is where the real season begins! Our delectable menu on this week’s show… Read More…

Walk the Line 2014: NCAA Wk 8 & NFL Wk 7 – 10/17/14

This year’s Michigan State Spartan football team is indisputably impressive, but are they destined to fail out of sheer boredom? The trend became reality last week with yet another 4th quarter filled with mental errors, causing MSU to yet again not cover the spread after holding a considerable lead.

Winning alone is not going to be good enough to get into the College Football Playoff. Teams need to win big and establish themselves as the best of the best. A relatively easy road test Saturday vs. the Indiana Hoosiers has MSU -15.5, and the Spartans better play 60 minutes of football at 100%.

Another fun weekend of football to look forward to! This week’s menu… Read More…

Walk the Line – #17 – 1/17/14

With only 3 more NFL games left in this impossibly unpredictable season, Dan Krier & Ryan Smith dig in to prognosticate the outcomes of this Sunday’s AFC and NFC Conference Championships games.
