Found September 22, 2012 on Banks Of The Red Cedar:

Wow. That was almost embarrassing. Thank you MSU for the fourth quarter.

So, what did we learn?

-Dion Sims is the best receiver on the team. He had 6 receptions for 112 yards and a TD. However, the rest of the MSU receivers are not very good. 4 words for them: TOO MANY DROPPED PASSES.

-Le’Veon Bell is still really, really good. 36 rushes, 253 yards and 1 TD. Although EMU has a horrid rush defense, the Eagles formed their gameplan around Bell and he STILL hit 250 yards.

-The MSU Defense is still great. Not much to say other than that. I mean, they’re incredible. (Side note: Shilique Calhoun is more than an acceptable backup for Gholston).

Let us know any other interesting things you noticed during the game.
