7. Sharon is right on target.
It is just a game. Yes, Michigan fans and the usual sports talk radio that goes along with this kind of thing will sting a bit, but perspective here is truly important. As a State fan myself, I now have even more respect (if there wasn't alot already), for everything Sharon says.

I didn't listen to the game except for the very end...in disbelief and shock. I didn't listen much to the State game either. My real bitch right now is this greedy thing called the Big !0 Network. This stinks. It is just a shining example of the ultimate corporate greed that goes on in this country right now. I have even heard staunch Repubs gripe about it.

ASU should savor the day, take the big paycheck, and be a college. I will tear when my Tigers, Wings, (Lions?), Spartans, etc. get stung, but the sun will rise and legacy programs will go on to be legacy programs. Yes, coaching eras will end, but that is a discussion for true fans of any coach's particular team fans.

But wait, my second favorite team (the Cubbies) are in first in the NL Central. Hot damn!!!!
