Michigan State, East Division, class of B1G after week 1

Michigan State is the class of the Big Ten East division, and the East is the strongest of the two divisions. That’s what the B1G punditocracy was saying all summer long. Week one did nothing to prove otherwise. Nebraska and Michigan won big, and there are teams to watch out for. Especially since Ohio State looked very vulnerable. Michigan State did not. The Spartans were as good...

WATCH: Jacksonville State Wide Receiver Lands on His Head After Getting Up Ended By Michigan State's Kurtis Drummond

Before Friday's season opener between the Michigan State and Jacksonville State the Gamecocks had to know they were going to be hurting a little more than usual on Saturday. Mismatches like this often mean the underdog is going to be feeling the pain (but grateful for the payday). Jacksonville State wide receiver Josh Barge is going to really be feeling the pain after landing...

Michigan State QB Connor Cook Responds to Low Blow in Best Way Possible

Jacksonville State was not supposed to be real opposition for Michigan State Friday night, and it wasn't. The Spartans got out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and pretty much coasted to a 45-7 win over the Gamecocks (wow--bad weekend to be a fan of Gamecocks). Glorified scrimmages like this are meant to help the marquee team work out the kinks.The only thing that can make...

Michigan State’s Shilique Calhoun gets his sack after 24-yard chase (Video)

No one will ever accuse Michigan State defensive end Shilique Clahoun of not having a high motor — on or off the field. The guy just doesn’t give up. Last season he burst on to the scene with a crazy opening week that arguably saved the Spartans from near embarrassment. There was no need for that on Friday night against Jacksonville State, but with his team up 45-7 and the Gamecocks...

Michigan State’s Nick Hill goes spinning for TD (video)

Michigan State is putting a beat down on Jacksonville State, something most would’ve expected. However, most wouldn’t expect it to be 28-0 with barely any time off the clock in the second quarter of this one. Most wouldn’t expect both starting quarterback Connor Cook and starting running back Jeremy Langford to have hobbled off the field either. Thankfully Cook came back on...

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...

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...
