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...

Eastern Michigan Center Forgets How To Snap Against Michigan State (Video)

To say Eastern Michigan had a rough day against Michigan State would be an enormous understatement. The Eagles gained one yard — yes, just one yard — in the first half against the Spartans and allowed a whopping 49 points. Before the game ended, Eastern Michigan’s center summed up the entire day with one more miserable play. It was a fitting end to an embarrassing 73-14...

However, all became right with the world this Saturday as the two teams coming off of bye weeks made mince...

PHOTO: Michigan State is Literally and Figuratively Slamming Eastern Michigan

After the way Marcus Marriota showed up the Michigan State defense in the second half a couple weeks ago it is understandable that the Spartans may have had a little pent up aggression going in to Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan. That being said, you would hope that it would just manifest in a butt-whipping on the scoreboard.But it appears that at least one Spartans...
