Dantonio: MSU won't run up score for style points

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) It was a winning weekend for Michigan State, even though the Spartans didn't play. That's because Kirk Cousins, Brian Hoyer and Drew Stanton - all former quarterbacks at Michigan State - led their NFL teams to victory. ''I think that's a statement of Michigan State football - what they have been able to accomplish individually and then...

Kirk Cousins trade rumors entertain bored Redskins fans

Redskins fans don’t have a lot to do this evening. Why not fan every rumor involving our favorite trade bait, Kirk Cousins. The back-up quarterback is the most popular player on the team. In Cousins’ case, it’s because so many fans are anxious to dump him. Redskins fans are not used to other teams’ interest in Redskins players. It has worked the other way around since the...

Washington benches RG3, Kirk Cousins the starter for rest of season

Kirk Cousins will replace Robert Griffin III at quarterback Sunday when the Washington faces Atlanta. I like RG3, but man am I getting sick of seeing his press conferences on my television. ESPN has just been over-covering the hell out of RG3 and the Skins, and it has the tendency to make RG3  a polarizing figure. I still like him, and I really don’t watch ESPN all that much,...

Kirk Cousins stuck in neutral. Why that's bad for the Redskins.

Kirk Cousins must look at the career trajectory of Nock Foles with envy. Cousins isn't that type. He is devout and he believes that The Lord guided his path to Washington to back up Robert Griffin III. A weaker man would shout out, "Why, oh Lord, am I not in Philadelphia?" Cousins and Foles dueled for the starting quarterback slot for the Michigan State University...

Michigan State’s QB choice isn’t as tough a decision as it looks

I’d like to say this is a good problem for Mark Dantonio, but I don’t speak with that much confidence. With less than two weeks before the Michigan State Spartans open their season against the Western Michigan Broncos, they are without a starting quarterback. In fact, the decision is getting murkier the longer the process goes into summer practices. When the Spartans broke Spring...

Kirk Cousins stays true to his school, frequently wears Michigan State apparel.

Kirk Cousins out on the golf course. Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins seems to be taking the Beach Boys' adage "Be True To Your School" to heart. At the recent Brian Orakpo Leukemia Golf Classic, Cousins was seen wearing a Michigan State windbreaker. This behavior is apparently not unique, as Cousins apparently wears Sparty gear so often that Redskins...

Kirk Cousins visits DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI (VIDEO)

When my dad texted me saying that former Michigan State/current Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had visited a children’s hospital near his hometown in Michigan, my first thought was that I wasn’t surprised. Kirk Cousins is as classy and well-spoken as you will see in a professional athlete, which might surprise some seeing as he just completed his rookie year in...

Pre-Season overrated teams: Michigan State

Last year was a pretty solid season for the Spartans. I had them ranked 16th in my final poll of the 2011 season, and they were ranked 11th in the AP poll and 10th in the USA Today Coaches poll. This year, however, will not have similar results.The Spartans finished 11-3 last year. Gone from that squad is three-year starter Kirk Cousins. Regardless who is coming in as the quarterback...

Skip Bayless plays race card in RG3 vs. Kirk Cousins, DC yawns

I jumped all over a friend, maybe a former friend by now, a few days ago for broadcasting  a message that Barack Obama was giving Muslims a second Christmas holiday. The Eid Holiday Stamp hoax should have been seen as preposterous to everyone.  Versions of the same hoax have circulated since the George W. Bush days and the story was long ago debunked by snopes.com. I will start...
