Michigan State Football: Cook passes Cousins for most wins in MSU history

It wasn’t pretty at times and it wasn’t easy at times, but like so many of his other starts, for Connor Cook, it ended in a victory for MSU. With the 28th win of his career today, Connor Cook has passed Kirk Cousins in the Michigan State record books for most wins all-time by a starting quarterback. Cook improved to 28-3 in his — can we now call it — illustrious career...

Kirk Cousins gets off to disappointing start as Redskins starting QB

Jay Gruden said that former Michigan State Spartans star quarterback Kirk Cousins would give the Washington Redskins the best chance to win now. That didn’t end up being true, as Cousins struggled mightily in his 2015 debut against the improved Miami Dolphins. Cousins certainly didn’t look like a legitimate starter and the Redskins simply have to hope that he finds a way to turn...

Waiting for the real Kirk Cousins to emerge for the Redskins

Some Hog Heaven readers know that I am a Michigan State grad, and proudly so. Thus, I have admired Kirk Cousins’ play as quarterback for the MSU Spartans since 2009. I’m waiting for the Spartans Cousins to emerge for the Redskins. We’ve seen glimpses, in Baltimore and Cleveland in 2012; He appeared briefly against Philadelphia last season. But, Redskins fans have yet to see...

5 reasons why the Redskins will not trade Kirk Cousins

Mark Tyler is wrong. He writes The Time to Trade Kirk Cousins is Now in his post on Hog Haven. Tyler writes like a Cousins fan miffed at the news that Robert Griffin Iii enters 2015 season at the top of the Redskins QB depth chart. “…and all Cousins really needs is the backing of a coach and organization, some protection up front, and some of his confidence back.”   Bloggers...

Kirk Cousins vs. Russell Wilson: College Edition

Before Kirk Cousins dueled Russell Wilson in the NFL (Cousins stepped in for an injured RGIII in that infamous 2012 playoff game), they shared a remarkable duel in the Michigan State – Wisconsin series. I have an academic attachment to both schools and watched these games with great fascination. My rooting interest is more Spartans than Badgers; I spent more time in East Lansing...

Kirk Cousins performance a surprise to many, resolves nothing about future.

Kirk Cousins’ performance as RGIII’s stand in comes as a surprise to many. Not to Hog Heaven. I have seen him win too many games in the last two minutes for the Spartans to be surprised by his performance in the last two weeks. In fact, his last pass thrown behind Pierre Garcon was a bit of a shock. After an otherwise great performance, I expect that more first team practice...
