Found November 04, 2012 on Banks Of The Red Cedar:
First off: Let me introduce myself. I am Will Nahikian, a current student at Michigan State University. I will be doing recruiting news for BOTRC, and I also write about Michigan State for Delanysdozen.com You can follow my twitter: @SpartanWilliam and ask any questions there. The number one wide receiver and number one offensive guard are both still considering Michigan State. Adding either player would help solidify one of the best recruiting classes that MSU has had under Mark Dantonio. According to ESPN the Spartans currently have six 4 stars in their 2013 class. The current 2013 recruiting class consists of 14 commits; Mark Dantonio and staff are looking to add at least two more players. The wide receiver is LaQuon Treadwell, a 6-3/195 pound talent from Crete Illinois.  Treadwell is a consensus top 5 wide out through various recruiting databases and is believed to have the University of Michigan as his favorite. LaQuon is a top-notch talent; he has speed, great hands and the ability to make a play after the catch. He would be a weapon in the passing game from the get-go for Andrew Maxwell. But what are the Spartans chances at landing coveted wide receiver? Well, it has been mentioned that Michigan State has a few things going for them that interest Treadwell: The chance to play as a freshman and how close Michigan State is from his hometown. With that said, I believe Michigan State has a real chance at landing LaQuon Treadwell. No date has been set for his decision. David Dawson The offensive guard is David Dawson, a 6-4/282 pound offensive lineman from Detroit who currently attends Cass Tech. Dawson was originally committed to Michigan, but wanted to visit other school, which Michigan does not allow. Michigan could end up helping their in-state rival as Dawson has Michigan State in his new top 3 along with Wisconsin and Ohio State. David’s current teammate at Cass Tech Dennis Finley is already committed to play offensive tackle for the Spartans, which could be a factor for Dawson. Of the two recruits (Treadwell and Dawson) Dawson is the most likely to end up in Green and White. What are Michigan State’s chances at landing the highly touted guard? Very good, I think it comes down to Ohio State and Michigan State but currently MSU has to be the favorite.

Michigan State- 24 Nebraska- 28 Rapid Reactions

Ok. I expected MSU to drop this one, but not like this. I expected a low-scoring affair in which the Spartans offense couldn’t pull one out. Instead, the Spartans’ offense finally performed and put up 24 but the defense couldn’t come up in the clutch and gave up 28. Ugh. Well, here’s what I have to say: -That pass interference called on Darqueze Dennard, from what I saw...

Michigan State Spartans take on Nebraska Cornhuskers: keys to victory

They may not be taking a 14 hour bus ride right now, but there are plenty of reasons that 15 of Michigan State's 22 starters should be bitter about playing the Nebraska Cornhuskers in East Lansing tomorrow. Along with getting drubbed 24-3 in Lincoln last year, the Spartans have never beaten the Cornhuskers in their brief history as conference rivals.  Last year's squad...

Don’t Blame The Loss On The Referees, But…

Darqueze Dennard played possibly the game of his career. 2 picks (one of which would be a 96-yard pick-six, but we’ll cover that later) and 4 tackles. Also, late in the game, Dennard had a clutch play, denying Nebraska wideout Kenny Bell a touchdown reception, only to be called back because he had “interfered” with Bell. At first glance on the scoreboard at Spartan Stadium...

Spartans let lead slip in 28-24 loss to Nebraska

Darqueze Dennard intercepted a pass and appeared to run it back for a touchdown - then the return was negated by a penalty. Later, Michigan State allowed a 38-yard pass on fourth-and-10 when a stop would have put the game out of reach. Finally, when Dennard seemed to have broken up a third-down throw to the end zone, he was called for pass interference. At that point, the Spartans...

Michigan State DB Johnny Adams flops but fails to draw penalty (Video)

Michigan State Spartans defensive back Johnny Adams tried to draw a penalty against Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Kenny Bell after they tussled a bit after the whistle during Saturday's college football game at East Lansing. Although the flop by Adams failed to draw the penalty, it did manage to draw attention to Adams for the overacting. Video via ESPN. H/T Dr...

Huskers win tight one over Spartans

Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left, giving No. 21 Nebraska a 28-24 win over Michigan State on Saturday night that kept the Cornhuskers tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division. The Cornhuskers scored two touchdowns in the final 7:02 to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the...

Video: Michigan State player displays terrible acting skills

Flopping has been an epidemic infiltrating our sporting world for quite some time now. Soccer players have always been guilty of using the tactic, but rarely has it ever been used in college football...until Saturday.With time winding down in the second quarter during a game pitting Nebraska and Michigan State, Spartans receiver Johnny Adams does his best flop routine in an attempt...

Saturday Yielded a Pathetic, Yet Amazing College Football Flop

Michigan State’s Johnny Adams may be my least favorite player after seeing this video, or he may be my favorite. I am torn as to whether I should hate or love this guy for trying to perfect the art of soccer flopping. Check out Adams having it out with Nebraska’s Kenny Bell and then doing his best acting impression which is award worthy. Ridiculous. H/T Hot Clicks via Athlon...

More frustration for Spartans in loss to Nebraska

Michigan State may need a little more time to get over this one. The Spartans have an open date next weekend, and any positive vibes they had built at the start of November were dashed when Saturday's game against Nebraska slipped away in the final seconds. Michigan State seemed to have control on a few occasions in the fourth quarter, but ended up blowing a 10-point lead in...

Season of frustration for Spartans

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio had never experienced four straight games that were decided in the closing seconds. And if he never again has to go through the frustrations of the past month, he won't miss it. A 28-24 loss to Nebraska was the latest dagger for the Spartans (5-5, 2-4 Big Ten), who have dropped four league games by a total of 10...

Nebraska player flips off the Michigan State bench

Nebraska senior safety Daimion Stafford had a little message for the Michigan State sidelines during the first quarter of Saturday’s game. Ironically, the officiating crew would also give Michigan State the finger with some extra curious penalty calls down the stretch.  Nebraska and the referees won 28-24. Thanks to @TomLeyden

Michigan State Vs. Nebraska Preview

Hi all. This will be a shorter preview due to time constraints, but it’s better than nothing. Today, MSU takes on Nebraska at Spartan Stadium at 3:30 PM ET on ABC/ESPN2. It’s a huge matchup, as Nebraska hasn’t lost to MSU (they’re 6-0 all time), and this might be the nail in the coffin for all other Legends Division teams if Nebraska wins. Keys to the game for the Spartans...

Munson’s Thoughts: Michigan State

Last year Nebraska was able to hold Michigan State to three points and less than 200 yards of total offense in Lincoln. For the Huskers to come away with a win this time around, they will need to play a clean game on the road.

Michigan State basketball: Spartans struggle in win

For the most part, St. Cloud State sophomore Kevin Levandoski is a typical Division II college basketball player. Last year as a freshman, the 6’0” guard played about 8 minutes a game appearing in 28 of 29 games for the Huskies. Although he averaged only 1.4 points a game last season, this year with another year of experience under his belt, it appears that this year he will...
