Michigan State has lost five straight games for the first time since 1991, and a failure of leadership is a big reason why.
The way this season is unfolding, it is very apparent that this is not the way the Michigan State football team and its fans thought it would be. After five games and their record is 2-3 with two conference losses, one of them to Indiana and two beat downs at home! Are you kidding me? The season hinges on a victory for the Spartans on homecoming weekend. A turnaround is needed starting Saturday to salvage the season. Looking at the remaining schedule, the best this team could get to is 7-5. This is a big drop from last years’ championship season!
“Let’s go, let’s go,’’ MSU quarterback Connor Cook said as the team huddled before the first play of its final drive of the regular season.The drive would end 9 minutes, four seconds and 82 yards later, giving MSU a come-from-behind, heart-pounding 16-13 victory Saturday night in the Big Ten championship game.
L.J. Scott is the “big man on campus” in East Lansing after scoring the winning touchdown in the Big 10 championship game. The victory sends the Spartans to the Cotton Bowl to play Alabama in a semi-final game in which the winner will advance to play the winner of the Clemson-Oklahoma game to determine to national champion of college football for 2015.
Scott proved to be the workhorse as he and the Spartans O-line wore down the Hawkeyes on the game clinching drive.
