Bell leads the way for the Spartans on All-Big Ten teams

The All-Big Ten teams were announced Monday night, and there was good news for some Spartans. Leading the way for the MSU honorees was Le'Veon Bell -- big surprise. The junior running back had 350 carries for 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 30 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown. He ranked third in the country at 137.33 yards per game, while leading...

Michigan State Football Preview: From Rose Bowl Hopes, to Barely Bowl Eligible

  Well I am sure like me, other Spartan fans are extremely happy that the 2012 football season is over. Unfortunately, today is the day that we re-live the brutal 2012 Michigan State season. Expectations were high, and many were picking the Spartans to reach their first Rose Bowl since 1987, but everything seemed to go wrong as MSU finished 7-6 (3-5).  The 2013 season...

From the Spartan Sideline, Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl Edition: Michigan State vs. TCU Preview

On the heels of a disappointing season that began with much bigger postseason dreams, the Michigan State Spartans now must head to Tempe, Arizona looking to finish strong with two straight wins and more importantly, two straight bowl wins. Feats like that haven’t been accomplished much recently for the Spartans, so despite this bowl’s funny name, there’s no minimizing its importance...

Let’s make some guesses: Spartan Style

                          Ok the season is FINALLY over (well there is a bowl game eventually) and after the year Spartan fans have endured I think it may be time for a little fun. The All-B1G teams were announced last night and the Spartans had 7 players receiving 1st or 2nd team honors. Le’Veon Bell was the only MSU player to be selected on the first team...

Michigan State Football: Spartans offensive miscues lead to a loss on Senior Day

EAST LANSING — Michigan State may have won the battle, but they sure didn’t win the war. On Senior Day, the Michigan State Spartans (5-6, 2-5) lost their fourth game in six weeks to the Northwestern Wildcats (8-3, 4-3) 23-20. Statistically, Michigan State was the better team.

Darqueze Dennard: Michigan State’s number one corner

  Darqueze Dennard has generally been an afterthought when discussing the Michigan State secondary. The first name to come up over the last few years has been Johnny Adams, a pre-season All-American that was projected as a first-round pick before the season begun. The second name to pop-up generally has been Isaiah Lewis, an extremely fast and hard-hitting junior safety. But...

Saturday Yielded a Pathetic, Yet Amazing College Football Flop

Michigan State’s Johnny Adams may be my least favorite player after seeing this video, or he may be my favorite. I am torn as to whether I should hate or love this guy for trying to perfect the art of soccer flopping. Check out Adams having it out with Nebraska’s Kenny Bell and then doing his best acting impression which is award worthy. Ridiculous. H/T Hot Clicks via Athlon...

Don’t Blame The Loss On The Referees, But…

Darqueze Dennard played possibly the game of his career. 2 picks (one of which would be a 96-yard pick-six, but we’ll cover that later) and 4 tackles. Also, late in the game, Dennard had a clutch play, denying Nebraska wideout Kenny Bell a touchdown reception, only to be called back because he had “interfered” with Bell. At first glance on the scoreboard at Spartan Stadium...

Michigan State’s CB Johnny Adams looks for a call by flopping (Video)

Michigan State’s CB Johnny Adams ended up being a goat during the game, because of a block in the back penalty that he took during Darqueze Dennard’s interception return for a touchdown that had the touchdown called back.  The TD would have all but sealed the game and instead kept the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the game.Meanwhile, he had this epic flop in the first half looking...

Michigan State- 24 Nebraska- 28 Rapid Reactions

Ok. I expected MSU to drop this one, but not like this. I expected a low-scoring affair in which the Spartans offense couldn’t pull one out. Instead, the Spartans’ offense finally performed and put up 24 but the defense couldn’t come up in the clutch and gave up 28. Ugh. Well, here’s what I have to say: -That pass interference called on Darqueze Dennard, from what I saw...

Big 10 Picks: First Weekend Of October Edition

Our Big 10 picks column had a nice debut last week, going 3-2. The dumb move was belligerently sticking with Minnesota. The smart move was taking a risk on Penn State while the line moved against them all week. We’ll take as many winning records as we can get. I’ll have a full Saturday card later.
