First of all let me say I couldnt have been more relieved when I heard we were playing you in the Gator bowl. No, not because of any expected outcome. Just because we were playing a game against another conference that cares about football.
Do I expect my dogs to win? Damn right I do. But that isnt why I'm here. I'm here to express a few reasons we will or wont come away with a victory and take my beating if need be.
Reasons why I'm right:
1. My dogs will, contrary to all previous game examples, rely on our defensive corners to play man and use our safeties to come up and help forcing your team to pass.
2. My dogs will blitz but only in an effort to contain your qb to the middle of the field.
3. My dogs will understand your running back is an explosive chap that can break it at any moment and not get a case of the brain cramps and try to bring safties from the outside.
4. My dogs will understand that to move the ball, we must throw the ball over your linebackers, but underneath your safeties. My qb will understand that this doesnt include holding onto the ball for 15 seconds at a time.
5. My dogs will understand that first downs and sustaining drives for long periods will be essential to keeping your offense off the field.
Reasons why I'm wrong:
1. Your wildcats will have watched any film from our wins against Troy, Tennessee, and UK, and losses to UM, A & M and LSU to know that we insist upon running the damn ball until it is too late in the game to overcome a 4 score deficit.
2. Your wildcats will have figured out that turning the ball over to the dogs is a sure fire way to keep us in the game.
3. Your wildcats will, allow my dogs the long ball in trade for it taking the obligatory 19 seconds for our receivers to make it 25 yards down the field.
4. Your linebackers resist the urge to plant our qb and cover our running backs out of the backfield.
5. This game comes down to special teams play.
Let me just also say that you should not pay attention to those MSU fans who think our offense is predictable. A magic water filled 8 ball fits nicely on the wrist of our starting qb.
Well done, GCG. I echo my fellow fans comments. I'm looking forward to hanging out with the MSU Bulldog fans in Jacksonville. Sounds like our teams match up pretty well. I hope for a great, injury-free game.

I'm looking forward to a bloody, injury-filled game where MSU has to find a school bus to drag their injured players off the field. I'm hoping for a total blow-out of MSU, but maybe I've had too many Blue Moons tonight.
I like how your post started out so manly and intimidating and then you wrap it up by talking about drinking Blue Moon (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Sorry NU fans, you see what we have to deal with on a regular basis. It's encouraging though that RebelCEO took some time away from riots to speak about his rival, even though we're "not really" their rival according to most of them. Anyways, this matchup looks like a great game to watch New Year's Day. I could see it going either way, but of course I'll be rooting for my Dogs. I started thinkng about it and realized I didn't know who NU's rival is, would one of you graciously fill me in? Thanks.

Hey tsuner, I see you and a few bears are still butthurt from the rape and assault that took place 3 out of the last 4 years on your bears by THE MSU! Good luck in your little bbva bowl. Even A blind bear finds a nut every now and then!
