Michigan St.-Oregon Preview

Michigan State's Mark Dantonio is doing his best to deflect the importance of Saturday's showdown with No. 3 Oregon as it relates to the first College Football Playoff that is still an entire season down the road. Sure, if his seventh-ranked Spartans were to fall in Eugene in the school's first regular-season top-10 matchup in more than 47 years, there's ample time...

Spartans' Dantonio relishes big moments

Like Tom Izzo, like Mark Dantonio. Since Izzo was named head coach of the Michigan State basketball team in 1995, he's consistently pushed for his teams to play the most difficult non-conference schedules possible. Now, the football team is following suit. The Spartans, who leap-frogged Ohio State and UCLA to No. 7 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll, will travel to Eugene to face No...

Will the Big Ten ever be an 'elite' football conference again?

There used to be a time when a smash-mouth style of football was the only way to play the game. The outcome of a game was usually determined by what happened at the line of scrimmage, “the battle in the trenches” it used to be called. Good college football teams could run the ball down the defense’s throat. Elite programs could run it down the throat of any opponent. Speed...

Pickin’ On the Big Ten, Week 1: Weird Non-Saturday Games

The 2014 Big Ten football season is finally here, and like everyone else, I too am ready to pretend I actually know a thing or two about Rutgers and Maryland football now. There is room in my brain since I have already forgotten which teams were in the Leaders division and which were in the Legends. I may never forget that’s what the two divisions were called. This will be the...

Both teams were not expected...

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”

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio believes the same as many of Spartan Nation do. 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. Here is what he had to say at the Big Ten Media Days session on Tuesday: “Do I ever think about that? Yeah, I’ve thought about...
