defense




On Saturday the Michigan State Spartans let up 41 points in regulation against the Northwestern Wildcats, most of the points coming off of big gains. Otis Wiley who was predicted to be All-Big Ten this year let up two touchdowns, one going for a pick on 3 and 14 which the reciever caught and ran it for over 65 yards and the second was terrible coverage the reciever caught it for a 10 yard gain then ran it over 30 yards.
Still the Spartans didn't allow over 100 rushing yards but, the Wildcats had over 600 yards of total offense. The secondary to me looks terrible, what's your take on the Spartan defense?

We’re halfway through the season. Practically the entire national media has declared that the Big Ten is having a down year. Is this cyclical, or is the conference actually becoming less and less relevant?

I don’t think the Big Ten is down so much as it is balanced for the first time in a long time. Ohio State is clearly the best team right now and Minnesota is clearly the worst. The remaining nine, with Illinois at the top and Iowa at the bottom are at the stage where you can’t differentiate easily between any of them.

This is a good, talented team, but they are still unproven and it shows. They face a must win game at home against Indiana this week or an 0-4 conference start will find them suddenly fighting to even reach a bowl game. If that happens they would need to get at least one of a finishing kick against Michigan, Purdue, and Penn State to stay alive. You have to think Spartan fans are rocking back and forth right now nervously.
