Spartans' quest: Prove '13 was no fluke

Michigan State has spent the last few months basking in the glow of a Big Ten championship and a victory in the Rose Bowl. Or, at least, that's what it has done publicly. Behind closed doors, the Spartans insist the focus on 2014 began on the plane back from Pasadena. The Spartans are on a mission to prove they belong, that last season's success was simply the latest step...

Pat Narduzzi Tells His Michigan State Defense That They Stink At Every Spartans Practice

Michigan State possessed one of the country’s best defenses in 2013. The Spartans, who went 13-1, winning the Big Ten title and the Rose Bowl, were third in the nation in scoring defense, allowing only 13.2 points per game.  Mark Dantonio’s squad is picked by many to build on the success it had a season ago. The reason for that, mostly, being how good the Spartans are expected...

But Mark Dantonio has his sights set just a bit higher for 2014 – he thinks there...

Michigan State Football “acurate” sign tweet goes viral, unintentionally

It’s funny what gets traction on Twitter, isn’t it? Our isportsweb MSU correspondents can publish good stories from Michigan State Media Day (like this, this and this) and they get minimal traction. That’s to be expected, I guess. But I tweet out a photo of the sign outside of MSU’s locker room and it makes national news (ESPN, Bleacher Report, The Big Lead, Yahoo Sports...

Michigan State’s Dantonio: “We’d have been National Champions”

He believes that had the NCAA implemented a playoff system prior to the 2013 season, that Michigan State would have come out on top as the National Champions.

Mark Dantonio Eyeing A National Championship In 2014-15: “We’re Going To Dream Big”

Michigan State Football: The Malik McDowell recruiting saga

If you were to ask anyone who is involved with high school football recruiting if they have ever heard a story as bizarre as Malik McDowell’s, the response would be a universal and resounding no. The reason? His mom played as big a role in his recruiting as he did. Malik McDowell chose to attend Michigan State despite his mother’s opinion of the schoolMcDowell, a five-star defensive...
