Flying Spartan - another sack!
Well, the Spartans never seem to take the easy way out. With 5 minutes left, Ohio State had amassed all of 85 yards of offense and never threatened to score. With 3:30 left in the game I was wondering if we could really pitch shut out while losing the turnover battle 3-1 away from home. Of course we had to give up a TD with 10 seconds left, just a couple minutes after a Cousins interception. Man, am I starting to sound like a chUMp? You know, complaining about the way we WIN?
Forget about it. Fans should be much more enthused about this win than it we have demonstarted. The Spartans set a new MSU record with 9 sacks and the defense is still ranked #1 nationally (only one senior on the Spartans starting D!). It was an excellent win and sets the table for to hand our chUMps down the road a dose of reality. After five consecutive home games, they are 5 and OH. Now they go to Northwestern (lost today) while we get healed and prep for them through a bye week. I'll take our coaching staff at home with 2-weeks to prepare for a rivalry game - that is an undeniable edge for the Spartans. By the way, if a chUMp complains about the bye week to you, you can point them to 2013 when they
basically get 3-weeks to prepare. They play Indiana at home before a bye week prior to playing MSU at Spartan Stadium. How do they get away with playing all but 4 games at home this year? You can ask that when they complain about the bye week.
This story is a good recap of the game.
the first definitive evidence of Mark Dantonio’s recruiting strategy in five years at Michigan State — offense is schematics, but defense is athleticism. The physical upgrade of the Spartans’ defensive personnel was on display. They constantly harassed freshman Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller from the game. The Buckeyes never developed any sustained offensive flow.
