Photo: Michigan State Honors Its 2013 Team With Cool Graphic Inside Its Football Facility

The Michigan State football program has won four national championships recognized by the NCAA, but none since the 1960s, so one could make the argument that 2013 was the greatest season by the Spartans in recent memory.  Michigan State went 13-1 last season, defeating Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game and Stanford in the Rose Bowl. The 13 wins are the most in a single...

Photo: Michigan State Puts Up Darqueze Dennard Display Featuring Jim Thorpe Award

Darqueze Dennard was probably the best player on the nation’s best defense in 2013, and Michigan State has wasted little time in promoting the former Spartan among the school’s other football greats. MSU has already put together a display about Dennard, who was taken in the first round by the Cincinnati Bengals in this year’s NFL Draft. The display prominently features Dennard’s...

Big Ten Breakdown: Michigan State Spartans Full Preview

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 14: Michigan State Spartans

I saw the bounceback coming. I suppose you’re in a pretty good place as a program when a down year means your rock-solid defense carries a pathetic offense to 7-6 with a bowl win, as Michigan State’s defense did in 2012. The defense was elite but the offense was completely punchless, it wouldn’t have taken [&hellip No visits yet The post Big Ten Previews, Pt. 14: Michigan...

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...
