While the race for the Big Ten Leaders Division title seems very one-sided, with Wisconsin being heavily favored, the competition will be much stiffer to win the Legends Division. Michigan, Nebraska and Michigan State are all expected to be neck-and-neck to represent the other half of the Big Ten in the championship game, and even Iowa will be a factor in the picture this season...
This morning I had the chance to do something for the first time: Be a guest on a radio show. What was it about? None other than Michigan State football -- of course.
The radio show, hosted by Andrew Coppens, managing editor of Madtown Badgers -- friends on the Bloguin network, is running through the Big Ten right now on the Big Ten Countdown to Kickoff.
Check it out below. We...
One of the rewards for college football teams with solid programs is having a high percentage of redshirt freshmen.
Rather than throwing true freshmen into the fire, they are allowed a year to acclimate and develop before hitting the playing field on game day. They are not needed to immediately fill holes on a team desperate for talent.
Michigan State, coming off its only back...
Head Coach: Mark Dantonio
Mark Dantonio is going into his 6th year as head coach. He has had the Spartans on the brink of going to a BCS bowl game the past two seasons. In his first season, Dantonio brought the rebuilding team to a bowl. He has since brought the Spartans to a bowl five times, never missing out on postseason play since he became head coach. Last year, the Spartans...

It was a fun and informative time and Mike definitely brought it in terms of knowledge, so this is a must listen if you ask me.

Sunday’s first jersey scrimmage found Michigan State flexing its defensive strength against a young but talented offense. For first year quarterback Andrew Maxwell, early mistakes will lead to growth as the Spartans get ready for their season opener against Boise State.
After earning an offer from his camp performance this summer, Chicago (Ill.) De La Salle offensive lineman Jamarco Jones has stayed busy and added a few more offers. Where does Michigan State stand with the 2014 offensive lineman?
The Michigan State football team is known across the Big Ten Conference and even nationwide for its fast, swarming, and hard-nosed defense. Players like William Gholston, Max Bullough, and Johnny Adams are popular names known to all college football fans. Teams are aware of Denicos Allen’s playmaking ability and of Isaiah Lewis’ nose for the ball.
