Michigan State Football: White takes spring game, receiver position still a question

The Spartans Well-Documented Offensive Woes

The 2011 Spartans were a magical team, getting a quality bowl win and going 11-3 with a legendary finish in a win over Wisconsin. The Spartans defense was also ferocious, and all fans thought although MSU lost some key components on offense, the young Andrew Maxwell and (allegedly) talented Spartan wideouts would fill their shoes nicely.

MSU @ IU Recap: The Good, The Bad, And The Fugly

Despite what was a mostly horrific outing Saturday against an Indiana team that should have been a pushover, there were some good things which did transpire during the course of the game.
